When a plan doesn't come together.

You check and make sure everything is working fine before hand but, as always, once it comes show time something fucks up and you feel like an idiot. During tonight's RTMN, the dialogue audio and the musical audio was off for whatever reason in the movie. Sure it probably wasn't really my fault, more like the movie file itself, but still, I did check it before hand and it was fine so I have no idea what went wrong. It's just, as the host of the stream it still makes me feel like an idiot and that I let down everyone when that sort of thing happens, you know? Then again, I'm always too hard on myself.

On the bright side, I did manage to figure out how to keep my audio streams separate due to said problem popping up tonight so, that way, I can stream movies and participate in Skype calls at the same time without worrying about either or crossing over and contaminating the other; I'll take that as a victory in regards to making something good come out of something bad.

After all, there was nothing worse to me than missing out on the Skype with friends. Unfortunately, as soon as I figured out everything tonight, and it was all said and done, the time had crept up on me and with work looming on the horizon in five hours, I was again unable to participate in the Skype. Ah well. There's always next time, especially now that I've finally figured it out to my advantage. It's raining now. I like when it rains. It's nice to fall asleep to, listening to the rain, I mean.

Working so early in the morning is such a pro and a con. Great because I get out of work early, but terrible in the fact that I've always been a night owl and I just want to stay up, but I also don't want to feel like shit during my shift. Ah well. At least I finally got all that money I made from working all last week and the July 4th holiday. Feels good to have that money now. Not sure what I'm gonna do with it, however, although I do think I've got a few trips coming up that I should probably start investing in; after all, by the end of TO last year I barely had any money.

Then again, this year I've got a credit card. Hm, I do have to pay that off soon. I used it far too often during my vacation in NYC. Then again, to me, that's what vacations are; you spend money without thinking than pay the consequences (and the bill) afterward. Well, you know what they say, a fool and his money are soon parted. I am that fool.

I pity the fool.

EDIT: I just wasted an hour and a half after accepting an update on the webcam program I use to stream the movies only for it to totally screw it up, basically the video wouldn't work; blarg. Luckily, I fixed it, but just lost plenty of sleep time. I guess I have my own weird tendencies to blame. If I don't fix something right away, or try to solve a problem at that moment, it's all I can think about and it drives me crazy. Well, sleep now I guess, before anything else happens...
