Yesterday was ridiculously expensive.

My washer had been broken for about a month and a half (it was leaking water from the bottom every time I washed something) but I have a major phone phobia so I just ignored it...but every so often I get bursts of "No, I'm going to be responsible and get shit done" so I called a place to come look at it and give me a quote to fix it. They came out yesterday and told me the pump that injects water was leaking, and that it would cost about $250 to repair, and also that the motor was going out, so I should just buy a new one.

Sunday my toilet broke. I have no idea what was wrong with it. [livejournal.com profile] crashcart9 and I plunged it for hours, got a five foot drain snake to try and break through a clog, used hydrochloric acid to try and clean out the toilet and nothing. So we took it off the floor to see if it was the pipe leading to the sewer or the toilet that was the problem. It ended up being the toilet, and we just could not fix it no matter what we did.

So, yesterday I went to Lowe's and bought a new washer (that I got at a major discount and is actually pretty nice) and a new toilet (that needs a different seat like woah because it's extremely cheap...). [livejournal.com profile] crashcart9 and I installed the toilet ourselves yesterday evening and this morning (at nine, ew) the new washer came. So all day I've just been washing towels and bedding and rugs because omg, clean things!

Being a homeowner is fucking expensive, yo.

And now I'm studying for a society exam, and after that I will study for my biological statistics exam and this week is so busy, omg.

ALSO, I STARTED INTERNING AT THE ZOO AND IT'S THE BEST THING EVER. I've only worked there one day so far, but I'll be back on Thursday and it is so exciting. (I pet a kangaroo, and fed a family of Tamarin's mealworms by hand, and fed a pelican fish by hand, and mixed up food for some maned wolves and omg, I love it so much! This was basically my face the whole time: :D :D :D :D)
