I have earned the hamster's trust in my attempts to make right my mistreatment of him as an outlet for my aggression. My roommate is moving out with little notice, which is another strike for the stress box. Laptop is broken, so will need to find something to occupy time besides video game escapism until I can fix it. I have a good feeling about the balance in my social relationships and my behavior in them lately. I think I'm approaching a decent state of balance. Then again, I'm probably residually stoned from smoking a lot.
