Reason for Wanting a Job #6 Sep. 17th, 2010 @ 11:53 pm
Reason for wanting a job #6: Helping people is peachy keen.

The job that I want has everything to do with helping people. I want to work at an engineering firm/company that works on medical equipment or with materials that will be used in the medical field. I just want to work on something that will eventually help people. I just want to help my peeps.

Hoooray!!!! Sep. 16th, 2010 @ 07:45 pm
With the results of Sulu's latest bloodwork it looks like he isn't sick. Yay!!!!! There is still a chance that he could have a really really really slow form of FIP and that his immune system is doing very well at kicking its butt, or he could just be a really weird kitty (which he totally is) and not have FIP but instead just have a weird eye. We do know that he has the virus from which FIP mutates and he could just have had a really bad reaction to that. There is also the chance that Sulu had FIP but it reverted back to the original relatively harmless virus. The last one there is probably not the case, but who knows with this silly boy.

All I know is that I've created a tiny monster that gets everything he wants by screaming.

Reason for Wanting a Job #5 Sep. 16th, 2010 @ 10:28 am
Reason for wanting a job #5: No more interviewing

I hate interviews. I don't know what comes over me in an interview but I turn into a bumbling fool and my interview today was no different. I stuttered, said "umm" a lot, and over-explained everything. I also do not have the background that they are looking for and my poor attempt at spinning it probably didn't help anything. I didn't have any questions by the time we were done because they were answered during the interview, and I mentioned that, but it didn't seem acceptable. Also, I asked if I could contact the interviewer with questions and I was told no but I could contact the HR person that I have been corresponding with. And then in the background I heard the HR person, who was there for reference and observation, say that I should have asked about benefits, pay, etc. I thought that you weren't supposed to ask that until the HR person brought it up later on in the interviewing process. Ugh!!! Also, with my father in a similar job situation I've already heard about benefits, pay scale, etc. I suppose that I could have mentioned that but I never expected that they wanted me to ask about those types of things.

I HATE interviews. I've never had a real interview for any of the jobs that I held in the past so this interview process and rejection is a terrible feeling. *sigh*

Reason for wanting a job #4: Not having to worry about this crap on TV.

If I am busy, ya know, working then I won't have to worry about finding something to watch on TV. It used to be that no matter what time of day or night it was you could find Law & Order or CSI on TV. However, now crappy movies and bad TV shows are being replayed instead. I just want my CSI and/or Lenny Brisco. Is that too much to ask?

(Law & Order: CI is also acceptable, especially when I need to do something. CI somehow inspires me, even when I am not paying any attention to it.)

Reason for Wanting a Job #3 Sep. 14th, 2010 @ 05:48 pm
Reason for wanting a job #3: Bento!

I have been looking for a reason to use my bento boxes for a looooong time. I used to make lunches for school when I knew that I would be spending a long time on campus. My bentos were fun and yummy but not kawaii, which I am fine with, but I recently bought two books on making fun bento things and I want to cute-up my lunch.

Even though I don't have a job at the moment, I did decide to make an attempt at a kawaii bento today. I even went the extra step and named it "Dream in Green".



Dream in Green! - Two mini ham and cheese sandwiches on a bed of lettuce, dressing on the side.
-Little star girl (bottom left) - Body: ham and cheese sandwich; Head: grape; Hair: brown rice; Buttons: bbq sauce
-Crescent Moon - Ham and cheese sandwich with bbq sauce eye and mouth

It is slightly drab but that's fine with me. It is cute and a decent try for my first try at kawaii and it was really tasty!

Reason for Wanting a Job #2 Sep. 13th, 2010 @ 09:20 pm
Reason for wanting a job #2: MONEY!

Money is very useful, especially when you have a sick kitty and need new clothes. Money will also help with dance lessons (something that I really want to start up again) and student loans. I also want to get my own place, have nice things, and save for children, a house, and retirement. If you ask my kitties all that money is good for is food, fud, fudz, and the nip. Gotta save money for the nip.

Reason for Wanting a Job #1 Sep. 12th, 2010 @ 07:50 pm
Starting today and running until I get a job I will be writing about some reasons why I want a job. Sometimes it might be a little silly, sometimes it might not make sense, but hopefully if anyone still reads this it will give them something to do. Speaking of something to do...


Reason #1 for wanting a job: I am booooooooooored!

With a job, I won't have to look for something to do because I'll have something to do every weekday from roughly 9am-5pm and that doesn't even include driving, getting ready, giving the kitty medicine, making my lunch, etc. I know that I won't have as much time for sitting around and doing nothing, working on my online classes, dancing, and kitty snuggling, but I sure would enjoy the time I had more.

Sitting at the computer or laying in bed watching TV all day just isn't fun anymore.

Boooooooooored! Sep. 11th, 2010 @ 08:50 pm
Hrmmmm...
I've been really really bored lately. I think that it has something to do with starting school around this time of year for the past 19 years but this year I'm not going back. Luckily I'll get to start learning again soon. Starting the 15th I'll be taking online classes through the local community college. I'm really looking forward to the Ruby programming class, probably because I know the basics of the other classes but the Ruby stuff will be 99% new to me. Also, we'll be making real webpages in my Ruby class so I will have something other than a certificate to prove that I can perform well (or poorly) in the class.

I'm thinking of writing every day. I would also like to get back into my comics but I need a better program to create them. I'm getting more and more ideas that take several panels and I just don't have the focus to spend so many hours on them. I'm hoping that by writing every day that I will better my writing/grammar/etc. (because, honestly, engineering school is probably the worst thing to ever happen to grammar, spelling, and English in general) and I will find something worth writing more about.

So yay to writing, yay to Ruby, and yay to other things.

Look. I'm already bored with this entry.

Ugh.

Once again it has been a while. I suppose that I would feel more upset but I'm pretty sure that no one reads this anymore. At least if I continue to update at least once in a while then I will feel like I've accomplished something.

Still no job and far less job prospects than before. I do have a few jobs that I want to apply for but I've been waiting for help on my resume for a few weeks and because of some really awkward circumstances I probably won't be getting help from that source anymore. I'll be meeting with the assistant director of the WPI CDC Friday afternoon if the weather cooperates so hopefully that goes better than my previous situation.

I have been basically offered an internship in Illinois/Wisconsin but I don't want to move out there yet. I still have some things keeping me in the area and I would like to have those resolved before I think about moving out of the area, even if it is just for a few months. As of right now my perfect plan would be to get a job somewhere within a half an hour or 45 minutes to the north east of my parents' house, live there (here) for a while to save money, and then find an apartment closer to Boston after a few months. I'd like to stay here to save money and to dance at a local dance studio. They perform full length ballets which is something that I have always wanted to do. It doesn't look like I'll be ready to audition for the professional company that I was looking into because my mom's kitchen isn't big enough after all and I haven't found a good rehearsal space.

Things seemed to have gone from okay to cruddy. Ugh.

Now I'm hot, tired, and cranky, and I don't want to write anything else now nor do I want to reread or edit it. Ugh.

Second Time Around? Jul. 9th, 2010 @ 11:47 pm
Today is/was a rough day for missing dance. I don't know why I miss dancing more than usual today but it is really eating away at me. Maybe it is the fact that I have a plan for getting back into dance but it all hinges on me getting a job in or around Boston which doesn't look to be happening anytime soon. Perhaps my body is just fed up with my general laziness as of late. Perhaps I am just in a creative mood or my brain is reaching out for some kind of order and routine. Sitting on the couch all day applying for jobs doesn't really count as a routine as far as I'm concerned and I need to change that, preferably by getting a job.

In the meantime I should be using all of my free time to do something productive. Hrm, let's puzzle this out. I have a bunch of free time and I want to get back into dancing so perhaps I can combine them in some kind of Power Ranger-esque super activity! I still need one more zord though...a place to combine them. Say, a studio? Well, I don't have one of those hanging around (if you know of one I would love to hear about it) but I can move some things around in my mom's kitchen to sort of make a largish space. I can't practice any big jumps but I can surely work through some exercises and small jumps. And maybe I'll also look into getting head shots and dancing shots. (I want some of those anyway)

So now I start my journey of getting back on the horse, or shall I say megazord, that is dance. Hopefully this time I will be able to get back into good enough form to audition for The Nutcracker, a goal that I set for myself last year but never got around to fulfilling. Maybe this summer I will get my act, I mean zord, together and be able to kill that huge evil creepy thing that the cranky lady sent to destroy the city using only a big long stick and a waving motion...I mean, maybe I'll be able to audition and do well enough to get a role.

(OK, ya, I pushed that last one.)
