First of all major thanks and hugs to all. Y'all know who you are. I'd offer to send out cookies, but I don't bake. And with my luck, they'd probably get all crumbly by the time they got there.
Okay, so the situation at home, for those who've heard me bitch and complain, is better.
I'm currently working at a research company, doing phone surveys. Yes, that's EXACTLY as exciting how it sounds. Basically, I make tons of calls just to have people hang up on me or get stuck leaving messages and KNOWING that they ain't calling back.
Today I had an interview at a visual arts center. It was v. cool and I really liked the people there. The job sounds really interesting and very busy, and you know what? It's totally something I'm into.
It's a not-for-profit organization that promotes the arts, does film festivals, and offers tons of classes (like painting, ballet, drama, music, ceramics, etc). If, and this is a big "if," I got the job, I'd be working the "late shift" as a receptionist. It would be very intense, but I think I could do it.
I'll be hearing back from them later on this week. My fingers are crossed. This is something that isn't just wasting time, this is something I'd want to do for long-term. But I'll see what happens. I can do the 5-9 time slot fine, except for Mondays and Wednesdays, because my class gets out at 5:30 P.M. I'm hoping that they can overlook that problem because this is the sort of job that I could get excited about, that I'd actually want to do and not have to force myself to go to every day.
And in school news, I am dying! No, just kidding. That's me being all over-dramatic. I had a paper due today and on Sunday night, my damn computer froze and I lost what I had written. Pissed off at my computer, I decided the best revenge was to go to sleep. I had to write the paper during my break. I've already broken my promise to write my papers ahead of time.
Tomorrow I have an exam and on Thursday I have another paper due. I have two papers due next week. This is cruel. I just don't feel in the paper-writing groove yet, although I started work on the Oct. 2 paper tonight and considering how I'm almost always writing last-minute, this is rather excellent.
Oh, and by-the-fandom-by? (whispers) Don't tell, but I'm working on an O.C. fic. Slashy Seth/Ryan goodness with a punch of darkness. I'm still trying to kick up the darkness.
Just wait until the next update. Next time maybe there will be dancing ponies on a pin.
I've lost my damn mind.
