Need new job. So I've started hunting for one. I've forgotten how stressful it is and how much I hate finding references, And since I've only ever had the filing job that I'm currently at, how very pathetic my job history looks. I don't even have college as an excuse since I've only been able to afford 4 classes since high school. And just, argh.*shakes fist at the job gods*

Hell, well, I live in hope. The glorious hope of getting paid more and escaping scanning in a windowless room.

*applies more*

Staying Up Late

Have finally gotten my new laptop and I love it so far. His name is Gabriel and I really hope that doesn't mean he'll start fucking with my head for the hell of it. Which is why I originally tried to name him Cas but it wasn't sticking so Gabriel it is. I'm basically settled in I just need to move over my ridiculously large iTunes library along with my old word docs and then I'm set. *dances*

M'kay, it ridiculously late right now so I'm going to get to bed. Have to watch the kids group at my parents church tomorrow. *glaces at clock* Well, more like today. Bah. I hope it isn't going to be like last week so I can some more knitting done. Hm. Maybe I can distract them with yarn in between to Jesus bits? It worked in the beginning at least...

Awake At Strage Hours

I've messed up my sleeping schedule. Again. I'm fairly sure I'm still babysitting for the Conley's today but I'll have to call and make sure when it gets to be a more reasonable hour for that sort of thing. Plus I need to remind her about last week's pay. Still, at this rate I'm fairly sure that I'll have enough for next semester if I can convince my family that a college class is a perfectly good present and that they should ignore the way I've been drooling over certain corsets, skirts and lace-up boots during my internet wanderings. I can do without them but I need that class.

Also, I've gotten really bored of my current layout so I'm switching it to something else. Possibly adding a header. I'll get back to you on that.

And We've Got Bombs

"I once had this dream that there was this set of special bombs hidden all over the world. The bombs looked like hinged glass balls with intricate whirring mechanisms inside. Some were dangerous, some were good, all of them changed the universe in different ways. There was one, the perfect bomb, the one everyone searched for: the Love Bomb.

In the dream someone had found one of the bombs. A small group of us gathered on a hill and he showed it to us. It was beautiful; all the gears and spindles inside were different colors, working furiously. "Do you know what this is?" he said and smiled. Then for just a split-second, he opened it, and the world changed.

Huge flowers and trees burst from the ground and opened. Beautiful buildings of grand design shot up along the horizon. Birds that we'd never seen flew into the air, banners and streamers unfurled across the sky which was on fire with color and light. Everything seemed to dance and leap into the air and change color. Tears streamed down our faces as we saw it all, felt it all, as we felt this beautiful music and joy and love filling our lungs like too much air. And the whole world, the entire universe felt it.

When he closed the bomb, we almost tore him apart trying to get it back.

Today, all this purple hoopla, should be about combating all the meanness in the world with a ferocious goodness. What the hell is "different"? We're all fucking different. We're all WILDLY different. Just start loving everyone, because everyone's worthy of love. You put that love out into the sphere and it'll be felt. You open a love bomb." -

This is exactly what I feel about everything right now. All the utter shit that has been going down. Why can't we just shut the fuck up about how different is 'wrong' and grow the fuck up and get over ourselves? Because really, all it takes is to sit up, take notice and do something about what's been happening. Really. To not let people get away with being bullies and bigots because society considers them more important then the people that they are bullying.

So, stand the hell up and do something! Because no one deserves to be pushed to the point where they feel that life isn't worth living.

Blah, Blah, Blah

So, had a good day today. Was going to go job-hunting in Novi but decided that sleep was far more important which led to some very strange dreams about my mother and I shopping at Wal-Mart  with our car full of pizza boxes and cats while on on epic quest to find the Golden Dildo. During which we somehow bent time and space and the Doctor showed up and called us stupid apes. Yeah, I don't know either but I'm sure Freud would have a field day.

Sent in some more applications which I'm pretty sure are going to get ignored since my only work experience consists of babysitting. Speaking of babysitting, the Days had me look after their kids tonight which is awesome and my bank account is now thirty bucks richer. Which is also awesome. *grins* Granted, I can't spend it on anything fun since I'm saving up for next semester classes but thirty bucks is thirty bucks. *shrugs*

Sleep is a Thing That Does Not Exist

So tired, but I can't get to sleep for the life of me. It's very annoying because in about four or five hours I'm supposed to get up and babysit a three year old and a baby. Luckily, they're generally well behaved most of the time so hopefully that'll be that case this time.

My sleeping schedule is just ridiculously fucked up though. Haven't been able to get to bed at a decent hour for days and I kinda want to kill something. Maybe I can make a deal with a magic entity/god and go on a quest for sleep powder with no nasty side effects? Cause I really wouldn't mind slaying nasty beasts/taking cure of a far off realms problems/teaching the cure to toe fungus if it got me some decent sleep. I'd offer you my first-born but I've watched Labyrinth too many times.

Also, do I just have a face that says "I will totally listen to all your problems and provide sage advice on how to fix them"? Because apparently I do lately. It's probaly what I get for wearing a shirt that offers free hugs... *is baffled* But I routinely get people who sit down at my Starbucks table and after I do the polite bit of saying hi and and asking how they are, they proceed to answer honestly. I really have no idea why. And because I'm crazy I do my best to sort them out. Oy. Never let it be said life is boring. Though I think some of the staff have bets on whether my study sessions are going to turn into therapy sessions...

Leads & Other Things

So I've got a good lead at the local sweet shop which sounds like it'll be perfect if I get it. They need someone from noon to five and I'm pretty sure the manager likes me. Always Knew that me lovely wit and dubious charm would serve me well one day. May also help that I'm good at dealing with screaming kids, which, being a sweet shop they seem to get a lot of. This can only be good for my chances.

There's also the possibility of a lead at Subway, but I really like Sweet Treats better as far as my options go. I mean, who doesn't love chocolate? *shrugs* Really, though, I'm kinda getting to the point that I'll take whoever will hire me. I'll take what I can get because I'm just so bored waiting for my next class to start up. Which reminds me, I need to call and ask what book the prof wants me to get so I can try and find it cheap somewhere... Though considering it's an anatomy class that's probably not too likely.

Also have been looking into Zen and Tao which are very interesting. I kinda don't want to give the books I took out on them back to the library. *sigh* Will just have to put them on my to buy list along with all those other things I'm planning on doing once I have money again. I'm also thinking of picking up tarot just because it looks interesting. Hm. We'll see.

Also have been attempting to read the Bible for the first time despite having claimed to believe in it for the majority of my life. It. doesn't. make. sense. Seriously. Why that hell did God not take Cain's offering but accepted Abel's? I mean, it's not like he said anything about veggies not being worthy sacrifices that I could see. I mean, I know my church attaches significant symbolic type stuff to this concerning Jesus being the sacrificial lamb and such for our sins and that Abel's offering is supposed to signify this, but it was the beginning of the world. I kinda doubt that there was precedence for this yet, ya know? Bah, this is what I get for expecting things to make sense. Still, the creation of the Earth bit was pretty darn cool, I'll give it that.

Job Interview

So had my job interview today. I don't think it went well. At all.  But I think everybody thinks that. I still think it went horrible though.

Stupid lack of job experience. Meh.

Am currently very annoyed with myself. Seriously, self? Why didn't you look at your syllabus? Why? Cause now you only have a week to do that huge paper that you haven't touched. Much less thought about. Which makes you kinda dumb. And a little bit panicky.

And then there's that exam that's coming up that you forgot about too. For the same class. *headdesk*

I really should try getting a calendar someday. That way, maybe I'll actually remember things for once. *shrugs and sighs* It's worth a try at least.

School is out. Forever.

Which is just so weird! You think you're going to be stuck there forever doing the same old thing and dealing with this thing that is not so secretly trying to suck the life out of you. And then, BANG! It's over and you are left to freak out over what the hell you're going to do next.

Meep. It's just kind of crazy really. It's the point of your life that you always knew you'd reach somehow, someday. But it's the someday bit of that that's key. Someday is just this far off nebulous nothing. It has no bearing on you and you in don't to save the world from it or anything like that. It's just something that eventually will be.

In other news I start up community college next month which is going to be all kinds of interesting. Since you know, freshmen = fresh meat. Still it should be fun. I really need to work on getting a new job. Currently the library or Conney Island is looking good. Failing that, Taco Bell is looking for new people again.

So let's go out and get work! *resolve face*

Really hope that we get a snow day tomorrow, it's looking like a pretty good chance of one though. I could really use one. I'm so tired lately, senior year is starting to get to me. I need more sleep or something is gonna give and it might just be my sanity. Shouldn't have taken so many A.P classes then maybe it would have been easier to stay on top of my other not A.P classes and I wouldn't have tanked them. *sigh* Too late for that now. I'm just gonna have to take the consequences in stride. It's a good thing the college I'm planning on going to doesn't have a required GPA to get in or I'd be completely screwed.

In other news I'm trying to think of a writing challenge for the D.B.C.A for Valentine's to make up for my absence there lately. I'm thinking murder mystery or something along those lines just to keep in line with our usual resistance to conformity. Or I could just put together a bunch of prompts with V-day having to be the common setting...I'll probably do a mix of the two, even though the murder mystery would probably work better in the Ballroom... I'll probably have it all put together by the weekend, sooner if there's that snow day.

robes are nice

So, for Christmas I got a robe, tis a very nice robe with many lovely robely qualities. Such as it being fuzzy and warm. The second being more important then the first. I also kinda of drown inside of it, but that is what makes it so perfect, all the extra fabric just means more warmth for me! *grins*

Though I do have one problem with it. I have absolutely no idea what colour it is. Serious. It keeps changing depending on the light. One moment it's a deep reddish colour and the the next it's dark purple and from there it goes to burgundy... I think I'm just gonna call it repurgundy. Except that is a really ugly sounding word.

Hmm... I'm gonna have to think on this.

In other news the new semester begins tomorrow, so yay for that. Changes are always nice and so are classes that are relevant to my chosen career thingy also known as a social worker. So go, new classes, go! Also, have read P&P&Z. Colour me not impressed people. I think that I would have been perfectly fine with it if it hadn't been for all the sex jokes that were everywhere. Very annoying. Still, the zombies did make for a fun addition even if you can't use it to replace the original.

Moving and Icons

I really shouldn't be on here. *looks about stealthily* But I am, so, ah well. *shrugs* So, yeah. Man, I'm boring... I come to actually make use of this and now I can't think of anything interesting to say besides the fact that I'm moving and really need get some different icons.

I have waaay too many Zelos for my own good. Stupid girly pretty boy...

Also, I have an urge to actually [i]write[/i] fanfic instead of read it, 'cause, you know what? Tinman is awesome! *huggles Glitch* It's a show that I recorded a while back and didn't get 'round to watching 'till a few days ago and I really wish that I'd gotten 'round to it sooner now. It had great characters, an interesting, if generic, 'Evil Witch Must Be Overthrown' plot (with some twists), the princess character wasn't perfect and unable to do any wrong (in fact she [i]caused[/i] the witch situation) and was like a vaguely steam-punk 'Wizard of Oz'. Which shouldn't be that surprising, considering it's meant to be a modernized version of it. Which it did awesome at.

My one compliant is the ending. It was way too sudden. I mean, sure the huge eclipse thingy was averted and the Witch melted in classic Oz style, but there just wasn't any conflict resolution. It's like a book that ends as soon as the hero figure deals the killing blow and you turn the next page and there's nothing there. Meh. Ah, well. This is what we have fanfic for. To save us from crappy endings! *grins* And for really crazing pairings. *still hasn't quite recovered from the Potter fandom*

So, I think I'm going to have to dump some of my Zelos icons for Glitch because Glitch is just way more adorable. *hugs* And he has a zipper in his head! Now, that's just kinda awesome.

*runs off to get back to packing* Here, have some Zelos.

I like quotes, don't you? They're just such fun! *grins*

Current favorite:

it's not that i [b]believe[/b] everything happens
for a reason... it's [i]just[/i] that I think that some
things are meant to be broken; imperfect; chaotic.
it's the [b]universe's[/b] way of providing contrast.
there has to be a few holes in the road...
it's just how [i]life[/i] is.
