...got a call from a paralegal on the answering machine. There's a court case pending in Will County against me, probably garnishment proceedings for the student loans I haven't heard a word about since December. I've got to return the call tomorrow and find out WTF is going on, but I'd bet that's it.
Then people wonder why I don't get excited when good stuff happens to me. Well, this is why: whenever things get better, they almost immediately get worse than they were before.
