Believe it or not, I'm still out here somewhere! Despite still having an anagrammed X name, I do exist! Nothing like a good existential crisis to remind you that you're still alive!

Now that that joke's gone on far too long and made me look far more desperate than I actually amm...hi! Yeah, it's been a ridiculously long time since I've updated this journal, and I blame the fact that updating here actually takes some amount of cohesive thought and effort. I haven't had a lot of that to spare lately. Most of it's going to work, where we're wrapping up two massive summer projects. Classes start again on Friday, which means teachers come back Thursday, which means all of our lives up in the tech department are about to get insanely busy. That's going to be interesting. Most of my waking hours have been going to that, and I'm probably going to do some working from home this weekend in order to get things done. Things should calm down again on the work front in...October, maybe...so that'll be nice.

The other thing that's eaten my life, at least for about a week, was the release of KH3D. If you're friends with me on Facebook, you saw a bit of my frustration; if you have me on Plurk, you got the full-on screaming fury. I was even swearing at things IRL, which surprised the hell out of my roommate. I don't usually get that profane about...anything, really. I won't give spoilers here (though I'd be happy to link the exceedingly spoilery plurk rants if anyone wants them), but as far as final thoughts go, I really did enjoy this game. It gave me quite a bit to think about in terms of character development; it had a battle system that I both enjoyed and hated by turns (I cannot tell you how many times I died while waiting for Cure to recharge); I spent way too much time naming and feeding and petting and generally loving upon my Dream Eaters and enjoying the hell out of that; and it played Devil Went Down to Georgia on my heartstrings, but this is Kingdom Hearts and that's a given at this point. There are still a few massive WHAT IS THIS EVEN scenes and plot points I need to watch again and discuss with someone, and I do think they need to rename the Xanatos Gambit the Xehanort Gambit, but overall it wasn't too terribly difficult to follow. (Though, really, I thought Storm of Swords had given me a pretty bad Everything You Know Is Wrong moment, and then I played 3D. Wow.) Overall, I give it an A and I will probably play through it again in very short order.

As for the usual IRL stuff, health is about the same as usual (imperfect but I'll live, way the hell better than December was), work is busy as mentioned but still much better than my last job, and apartment things are pretty chill. My mom actually came down last weekend for three days with me at Disneyland; of course, it had to be 95 degrees for those three days, so we were pretty much melting from heat the entire time. It was still a ton of fun - we have bizarre and hilarious ride photos down to an art now - and it was nice to have Mom down here for a change, even if avoiding political discussions is much the same as tango-ing around the elephant in the room and my (exceedingly sane by California standards) driving does terrify her. Still! Good times.

As far as writing and fandom activities go...yeah. I have a long list of fics to finish and an even longer list of edits to make on my NaNo fic in progress so I can continue working on it and hopefully finish it this November. (Synchro, you are a saint for having looked over all of that. Seriously.) RP drive has also been flagging a bit, but that's something else I need to sit down and parse out for a bit and today is just not that day. At some point, yes, but not now.

Finally, I am running a music blog and a Disneyland blog! If you have a tumblr, please follow my ridiculous stuff; if you have a tumblr or a plurk or a Twitter or if you're on Adagio (yes, tea, it's awesome), give me your username and let's be friends there too :Db

Oh man my life what even |D

I had that followup interview on Tuesday and...haven't heard a thing. Okay! Waiting is something I can do.

I managed to read Game of Thrones in about three and a half days, and I'm still not entirely sure what on Earth I was reading that entire time. I haven't got it in me for an extensively spoilery discussion at the moment, but I am borrowing the next few books from [livejournal.com profile] orelleperedhil, so that should be all sorts of interesting.

...seriously what did I just read I don't even. Martin means business, man.

I went to Vegas for the first time on Wednesday! I went to go see the Air Force play in the Mountain West conference and to hang out with my parents. The game was one of the most infuriating games I've ever been to - seriously, I'd be willing to bet somebody had money on the game that they really shouldn't have (i.e. coaches, refs, somebody), the opposing team's fans booed our team as they came onto the court, and the refs were flat blind - so that was not good, but the rest of the visit was great. I managed to win ~$100 at craps and found a receipt for $140 in a change machine, so that was an unexpected but awesome windfall. Also, the food at the Paris is amazing. Cannot wait to go back in May.

On the job front, I got a call yesterday, an interview today, and I start working tomorrow in a receptionist position 30 minutes away (hnnnngh, but that's life) at a place that requires business professional dress. I need more than one suit jacket, I think. It's a temp gig and it holds down the fort while I look for more permanent things, so that is good!

And Wondercon is this weekend! I still need to figure out what I'm cosplaying as - I know I'll do Applejack and Linkara, but I haven't figured out a third yet.

So yeah. Life suddenly got busy. Who knew?
I HAVEN'T LOST MY HEART TO THE DARKNESS AND LEFT MY BODY AND SOUL TO GO WANDERING AROUND AND JOINING A MURDEROUS GROUP INTENT ON OBTAINING THE UNIVERSE'S ULTIMATE POWER

-I mean

Extended Kingdom Hearts jokes about existence aside, I am still around, believe it or not. I have also been keeping up on people's posts, even though I am the epitome of comment fail.

As far as life goes, it's been pretty much the same. I'm still trying to figure out what the stomach issues I'm dealing with are (the gastroenterologist had a few ideas as to what it might be, so I'm working through those), and my pillow stopped working for me for some reason, so I've been going through a lot of semi-sleepless and achy nights trying out new ones to find one that works. Aside from that, nothing else is really different as far as work and social life goes.

This is why I don't update this journal too much, I think. My Plurk is enough of a litany of woe - I'm not sure I want to spread it elsewhere. |D

Other than that, [community profile] itsjustagamerp is going really well! If I ever need a laugh, I just go read a thread. You guys are all awesome. ♥

I will have a Secret Valentine (think Secret Santa) post up within a day or two - it was supposed to be tonight, but it's been a long day.

Finally, and most importantly!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY [livejournal.com profile] corrielle!

Have the most fantastic of days today! ♥
SATURDAY:



Saturday we went to a house party that Kristin and Megan's roommate was putting on. It was actually fun! Their coworker, who, swear to goodness, is named Kermit, is actually not a bad bartender (though the energy-drink-based drink he mixed on request was soooooo bad oh man). He's not the type of guy I'd like to geek with for too long, since he is Highly Opinionated and Always Right - it's the combination that's the killer, really - but there were about ten other people there to socialize with as well, and good company all around, and pizza, and Rock Band. I had no idea they had Pat Benatar's "We Belong" in Rock Band, but they do! There was a severe and woeful lack of Offspring and Journey, though. Also, songs that cater to vocalists over instruments were termed the "wine coolers of Rock Band." I'm a vocalist, but I might have to use that any because it is hilarious.

SUNDAY:



Disneyland! Disneyland Disneyland Disneyland! The rides were all sorts of fun, I got a shiny six-person pass simply for being polite (and likely for having my HAPPY BIRTHDAY button in plain view, but politeness helps too), I walked around for a good chunk of the night with a lightcycle painted on my face thanks to ElecTRONica, I managed to get a WDI Tiki Room pin (which is a rare thing, so I'm pleased), and we found out that they will be releasing a KH pin in the park in late June. What is this I don't even. You'd better believe I'm either camping out for that sucker or sending a proxy to do just that, because I want that badly especially in multiples. Trading is good 8D. Basically, I love this park, I love my roomies, and I love [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin - awesome Disneyland party is awesome. 8Db

TODAY:



So I walked into work exhausted. That was mistake number one. 8D

My task for this week, and basically until it gets done, is to put the audio into demo videos for a project that we have been working on literally since I started temping at my job in January. It's been a long time coming. The previous demo videos for this project have been easy - they came with one set of audio cut in all the right places, and all we had to do was input our audio in the right spots and remove the old stuff. Not so much this time around.

The new videos are timed too quickly for the audio, and I'd be up a creek without a paddle on that front if Camtasia didn't have a freeze-frame effect that lets me extend one frame as a still image. The script that tells me what audio goes at what time on the video is useless, since I had to extend frames in the video right off the bat and that throws everything out of whack. On top of that, I thought it'd be a good idea to cut all the audio at once instead of leaving it in one strip and cutting it as needed. I keep having to move audio further out to make room for all the wonky timing in the video, and Camtasia's inability to move multiple audio clips at once means I have to start at the end and move every one individually every time I need to lengthen the video.

I spent all day working on this video and have about five minutes of video to show for it. The video is ten minutes long. It is one of three videos for this module. There are ten modules.

This'll be fun. 8Db

Also, I have not forgotten about one-sentence fics and mini FSTs! I shall get to them eventually, promise. You can also still request one if you want one - I will get around to them. :Db
THIS THREAD. THIS THREAD THIS THREAD THIS THREAD. I have not had Jaffa Cakes or Ben's Cookies in years and I have a craving something awful. Do any of my UK friends want to hook me up? I'll pay for cookies and shipping and everything and I'll send you something from California or LA or Disneyland or whatever, just...Ben's Cookies ;A;

That bit of withdrawal was about three years overdue, I think. |D In the meantime, I'm stalking that thread and sniping it sometime on the 24th.

As a reminder, my threads for [livejournal.com profile] helpthesouth are here and here. Y'all know what to do. :Db

In other news, Art of the Dress is getting rewritten. After everything we've done at work? Yeah, it's happening. I might even sing it if I get fed up enough. One line that's not changing, however: "Deadline looms/Don't you know the client's always right?"

Speaking of fandom and derpery, I'm debating finding a land comm or a 20in20 challenge to join. I know about the Sailor Moon and Avatar ones, but I'm not really in either of those fandoms. Is there a KH one kicking around somewhere, or a general 20in20? I have exactly zero idea, so. \O_o/

Eventually I will finish one of my writing projects. Eventually.

I'm actually dead serious about the cookie thing, guys. Do want.


Not the best video in the world, but I'm proficient in Camtasia now. My bosses both approved and called it "cute," which was...interesting... and in my book, that's a success.

Screw you, Xehanort. Nobody likes you.

Does anyone want small fic or mini fanmixes? Anyone? Bueller?

After a week of putting nothing up but fic (and with the full intention to do the same, albeit with hopefully more sleep thrown in there somewhere), I've finally come back to put up life updates.

...nothing much has happened, really. |D

Well, okay, that's not strictly true. I've decided to go full-time at Relate, the company where I've been temping for the past month (and yes, it has been that long, holy cow). I didn't ever hear back from that other interview to begin with, and even if I had, I've been doing a good deal of thinking and realized it wasn't the smartest of plans to ditch a position I was used to and quite liked for something that might be good that I might like. Of course, that still means hauling my rear to Camarillo five days a week, but it's a beautiful drive and thirty minutes of daydreaming or outlining or just singing along to the radio, and that's not a bad way to start the day.

Honestly, not a ton has been going on. I've been working a lot, and I'm not sure how much of that I can talk about, since I'm not sure how much is covered by NDAs. It's work, and work is good.

Thanks to living with two movie aficionados, I've been seeing a few lately. If you like your superhero movies trope-subverting and irreverent, Green Hornet is worth seeing. If you like your romcoms snarky and relatively true-to-life and don't mind them being about people having lots and lots of (rather tastefully done!) sex, No Strings Attached is worth seeing. If you have a brain in your head or are capable of thought in any capacity, The Social Network is worth seeing. Yes, I know I'm late to that party. Yes, I know it tastes vaguely of Oscar Bait. No, I don't care. It's fantastic.

The RP front has been pretty eventful lately, what with Holy Grail shenanigans and getting the plot Linkara's tangled up in up and running and potentially figuring out a way for Keyblade!Linkara to happen (any time a plot idea makes me cackle madly, I take it as a good sign). There's also a thread up for Levitas that I need to get into - it might be time for a canon review for him, since my brain seems to be running on either bitty Keyblade wielder or snarky internet review most times. Also, there's a Mechakara on dear_mun that poked me on AIM tonight. She wants to join Second City. I am just about beside myself with glee on this one.

I really should have some clever segue or something here, but I'm bushed and need to work tomorrow, so I'll just ask: does anyone local have anything planned for the Super Bowl? Turns out one roomie is working and the other got invited to a party with work colleagues, so I'm on my own. If anyone doesn't mind me crashing their fun, or if anyone wants to come over, I will provide food either way. |Db
I have a lot of things to talk about! For example:

- Thoughts on Hickory Farms
- Thoughts on Brighton
- Why Christmas/holiday parties with friends are amazing and why they need to happen all the time, not just over the holidays
- Recent Disneyland trip
- TRON 8D
- ...probably other stuff that's happened that I can't remember

But I'll do all that when I don't have to get up in...five hours...to go open for Hickory Farms. Yeah.

I don't sleep much nowadays. 8D;;;
GUYS I'M ALIVE I PROMISE

NO REALLY

I've been working six-hour days down at Universal Studios, which doesn't sound like a lot until you realize that, for nearly those entire six hours daily, I'm standing and attempting to get people to take a break from doing rides and attractions in order to take surveys. Given that I'm standing between The Mummy and Jurassic Park, not many people want to stop. Like Hickory Farms, it's a fun job when it's fast and excruciating when it's slow. This is evidently Universal's slowest week out of the year. There's also the matter of the 30-60 minute drive both there and back, thanks to the unpredictability of the 101. It's been a fun but long week. 8D;;;

I also found out that I'm working M-Th at Hickory Farms, and that I need to get my Thursday and Saturday shifts at Brighton moved for various reasons. I'll definitely be calling people during my lunch break tomorrow, I think.

Basically, life's been crazy and I've come home bushed every day, which means everything else - Christmas shopping and stuffs, RP, writing, everything - has pretty much fallen right off the radar. I know I have a flipton of catching up to do (especially at Paixao oh man have I ever been epically failing you guys). It will, however, have to wait until I finally get a day when I can sleep in - I haven't had one of those since I went home for Thanksgiving, and oh man am I ever looking forward to it.

So yes! I love you all, and I do read your entries, even if I am absolute comment fail. Much love. ♥

Got a call from my temp agent today. Turns out their email has a glitch or something, because those are the wrong hours - the job is, like I thought, from 10:30 to 4:30 or 5.

GLORY HALLELUJAH.

/runs off to work
Tags:
Everyone go to YouTube and look up Sassy Gay Friend. Like, now. Othello is my favorite, but Hamlet and the Giving Tree are both pretty awesome as well. Seriously, go.

Well, it's time for the Bad, the Good, and the Buh? in Kia's life.

This got slightly long, as my life is wont to do. |D )

So yes! Those are the life and times of Kia. Tomorrow, I fly home until Sunday. Should be interesting, but interesting can be fun. |Db

...okay I couldn't resist. A bit NWS for language, but still amazing.

As it stands, I have two jobs: A part-timer at Brighton, and a part-timer at Hickory Farms.

Brighton pays $9/hour with the potential to earn merchandise (and if you've seen Brighton merchandise, it is absolutely beautiful). Hickory Farms pays $8.50/hour. I'm going in for training for Brighton on Sunday and I'm stopping at Hickory Farms afterwards - here's hoping I can do morning shifts at one place and evening at the other and, between the two, wind up with around 40 hours a week of work. That'd be nice. It would also pay the rent for another month or two, so. Good times.

Somehow, oncoming employment still hasn't quite sunk in yet. I have no idea why this is.

Today is Gamma Games, followed by church, and hopefully with some writing in between. I've made some decisions on Terra's back story, so hopefully that'll go a bit easier.
Tags:
Disneyland is, as always, amazing. When the Christmas lights came on, I just about cried. Disney in all its forms tends to have a direct line to my heartstrings, and that was no exception.

Also, new dragon at Fantasmic. It looks amazing.

Interview today went well - I chatted with two managers for quite a while, they had me take an employment survey, and then they said I'd need to meet their general manager when she got back in town. I refuse to count my chickens, but I do have hopes for this one.

I've got another interview tomorrow. No idea what to expect there. It's with Teavana, though, so either way it'll be interesting.

If a flipton of Terra back story fic shows up on my LJ over the next week or so, it's entirely [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin's fault. I blame her. :|

On a completely different note, does anyone know where I can get Statler and Waldorf icons?
Eh, I get busy. Life happens.

A PREVIEW OF WHAT IS TO COME:
- The Disney Soda Fountain
- My Latest Temp Job
- Computer Lessons and You
- Being Proactive and Getting Nowhere Anyway
- More Job Interviews, AKA "I Don't Know How to Deal With This!"

Just click the cut if you want more! :D )

So yeah, that is Stuff Kia's Been Up To. Time to get some sleep, because that's somehow one thing I still haven't managed to accomplish with any degree of success this week. |Db

Also, I love this icon far too much. Can you tell yet. XD And it's almost time to bust out the Christmas icons, hee~
First of all, I writed a thing! I really need to stop doing that at one in the morning, but there you go. Also, BBS spoilers there. You've been warned.

Crazy things are happening with interviews being cancelled and changed around and whatnot, but I don't think I'm going to hear anything until Monday. Either way, glory hallelujah I have a three-day temp gig this week. :D Waking up at six is going to lay me flat, but it'll be worth it.

[livejournal.com profile] amorsinseramada and I are going to head to the Soda Fountain next to El Capitan later this afternoon. We've never been before, so it should be interesting. And full of ice cream. Yes. :Db

Finally, I've been tagged in this name meme, so here it is: And it's longer than you'd think! )

In completely different news, curse my ongoing obsession with timepieces! Guess what's going on my Christmas list this year. ;A;
I know I fail at commenting, but guys, I read all your posts and I do love you all. /hugs for everyone ♥

I am tired and footsore and, as always, really happy I went to Disneyland.

I had my Demyx shirt recognized by two people and finally managed to obtain the ever-elusive Kingdom Key pin.

I completely owned [livejournal.com profile] jedizero's brothers in Midway Madness, by a good 70,000 points. I also got top score in our car and top score of the hour. /self backpat

I really want to start that series of drabbles again. Both of them. Maybe tomorrow. We'll see.

Maleficent!Dragon seems to be having technical difficulties again. Despite that, and despite being nearly unable to see since everyone in front of us decided to stand when they'd been sitting beforehand, I truly enjoyed seeing Fantasmic again. That show is just the cherry on my happy sundae, I swear.

Fastpasses will never not be amazing.

My temp agency called a total of five times today, working out the details of a three-day receptionist gig. I start Monday. More on that when I'm not exhausted.

I love the Dapper Dandies. Barbershop quartets always make me happy, and a seven-minute a capella Disneyland medley is pretty much a direct route to my heartstrings. I don't care who I go to Disneyland with next time; we are catching these guys and watching a performance. Full stop.

Soarin' still makes me think of [livejournal.com profile] rebmakash. I have no idea how that association happened, but it did.

I am now an Honorary Citizen of Disneyland, and I have the button to prove it. Wonder if this means I can vote.

And finally, Space Mountain without music - especially when the music cuts off halfway through the ride - is really freaking terrifying.

All in all, the Happiest Place on Earth really lives up to its name.
I wound up with another interview! I applied for jobs last night, or rather early this morning, given that it was around 1 a.m. or so, and I got a call this afternoon scheduling me for an interview Tuesday. I was so tired when they called and said they wanted to interview me, my first question was, "what for?"

...which is probably a terrible first impression, but you do what you can. @_@ It's for Tuesday afternoon. Here's hoping.

I finally got Oncoming Traffic up and running! It's hyphenated, since "oncomingtraffic" was taken by one of those annoying years-old-but-only-one-entry blogs. If anyone's interested, the first entry is here. I'll be updating as often as I can, especially since I'm a month behind.

I'm going to Disneyland again tomorrow. Kevin asked me if I wanted to meet him and his parents there, so I am. XD He's going to get my World of Color fastpass, and I'm going to go see Fantasmic for the first time in what seems like ages. I have missed that show so much, and I am so stoked. :D

I am determined to finally finish that KH meme, so here goes!

Cut for BBS spoilers; All 30 days )


I know you're out there, Yang Mew, and I am coming to find you.
Small updates today, since I'm bushed.

I have yet to have any more job interviews, or to hear back from the temp agency I signed up for. I know I've only just applied there and need to be patient, but man, that is one quality that is not hard-wired into my system. I need to start applying for things on the Pepperdine Alumni Network again, I think, if only so I'll feel better about things.

...I bought a month's supply of V8 the day I quit DEX. I told myself I'd have a job by the time I finished the last can. I'm on my last six pack as of this week, and I'm not feeling too great about it. Go, self.

It also doesn't help that I enjoyed the hell out of my weekend off, then got lectured for taking said weekend off by my mother when I called her for loan information yesterday. I don't call her very often anymore because I know exactly what she's going to say about my employment situation and I don't want to hear it. It's not like I've been doing nothing for a month.

/GIGANTIC POUTY HUFF

As far as the job-hunting blog goes, it looks like oncomingtraffic is the winning name, provided that's not too many characters for Blogspot to handle. I'll link it when I get it set up and have an entry or two up there.

In less GRR ARGH EMPLOYMENT news, Old Spice parodies will never get old. I had way too much fun writing that one.

And when the stupid in one particular thread got to be too much, I took that frustration and had some fun with Linkara instead. 70 comments in two hours. I seriously love you guys.

In other news: really, dA? Really? Fantastic and epic fail, right freaking there. I'd have a hell of a lot more to say about it if I weren't braindead - I want to be coherent when I talk about a subject like that. For now, I'm going to smack it with the failstamp and glare at it until I can brain well enough to address it properly.

I will eventually start one of those 30 Day Memes, once I polish off the last six or so days for the KH one. Way the hell behind? Certainly.

For now, I'm off to crash out, as I will be up again early tomorrow to teach an older gentleman how to use his computer. I actually like chatting with him - he can be a lot of fun, even if we are still working out the difference between single and double clicking.


One Mew down, one to go. Come to me, Yang Mew.

( Nov. 1st, 2010 10:18 pm)
Today was just weird, man. I know I start a lot of entries like that, but this was just another one on the pile. For starters, Comic Con passes were supposed to go on sale today. That. Well.

Sometimes, chat logs are better than summaries. )

I had another session with the guy I'm teaching to use his computer, and then, having received my social security card in the mail, I headed over to the temp agency to fill out paperwork. I'm lucky I dressed up, because that turned into an interview.

The woman interviewing me offered me a job at the agency. I just. I don't even. THIS CANNOT BE HOW IT HAPPENS FOR NORMAL PEOPLE.

I must be nuts, to get a job offer and freak out about it instead of being happy. That said, I'm probably not going to take it - I'd rather have the temp receptionist work than the full time finding-clients-and-workers position. It's a huge commitment, and given that it wasn't on my radar, I feel like it's too big a thing to take on in less than 24 hours.

Then again, I probably shouldn't consider this stuff while sleep deprived. |D

Also! That whole idea of starting a blog chronicling my search for a job? I'm going to do it! That shall be my NaNoWriMo project, because I figure I should try to write something as well. Thing is, I still need a name for it. I don't ever use my polling options enough, so:

[Poll #1639603]

The first is a misnomer from a Bob Seger song, the second is our going slang, the third is from my Terry Pratchett icon, and after that I just ran out of ideas. XD So yes! Suggestions are awesome!

And I am exhausted but seriously love my roomies. Life is good, man.
I think I've managed to hit exhaustion. It's. Not a fun place to be.

I think what's making me crazy is the lack of schedule in my life. While I was employed, I was getting up at or around the same time every day, going to the same place, and doing the same things. Of course, while I was sleep deprived and bored as hell, it was a routine. I'm discovering I really, really miss that. Interviews are at different times and different distances, requiring different driving times (and a different amount of gas, which is always fun to try to gage), and I never know how long anything will last.

I know, boo-hoo, woe is me, at least I have interviews, et cetera. I get that.

Guys, I am not a spontaneous person. I plan the hell out of just about everything I do. My spontaneity is mostly in the form of "let's go see a movie tonight!" or "I should make cookies today." It's never for the big stuff.

Right now, the utter lack of plan I have for the big stuff is what's getting to me. I wait on interviews and have on idea when or if I'll be called. I'm in for a temp agency (despite the fact that they won't look for positions for me until they can hire me and get all my paperwork filled out, which requires a good long look at the motherf*ckin' boat my Social Security card and another form of ID), and I know temp stuff is never constant. I have two very part time gigs, which I love to death, that both entail meetings at odd hours on odd days. The only constant in my employment situation has been coming home and scouring search engines and job sites for more openings to apply for. That's not exactly a barrel of laughs.

The other downside to this is, I'm home and on the computer a lot. While I'm here, I don't ever let myself really have a break. If I take one to check my email or do tags or whatever, there's always the nagging voice of responsibility going, you should be looking for more jobs! Or drafting the cover letter for that Nintendo job! Or drafting a general cover letter! Or one of any number of other responsible things, really!

This is why I don't freelance; I think I'd go insane if I had to hear that voice all the time. As it is, I don't let myself relax at home, because any time I spend doing that could be spent Getting A Job, You Bum. That's my creative drive shot to hell, right there.

I don't know, guys. I'm tired. That could well be why I'm so blah about things - straight-up sleep deprivation. Dressing up and meeting new people and Smiling All The Time and selling yourself in an attempt to hope the job will buy it is just...tiring.

The strange thing is, I actually had a really good day today. Rifftrax Live with [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin and [livejournal.com profile] amorsinseramada was amazingly hilarious, as expected and appreciated. The final piece of my costume came in today, and I'm picking it up tomorrow. I've been having fun doing a bit of easy tagging with bitty!Terra on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun. Today has not been bad at all. The job hunt just gets me down, I guess. :/

I've been kicking around the idea of starting a blog to chronicle the ups and downs of my job search, actually. It'll get me writing again, it'll be something I can link to people as a sample of my more casual social networking writing, and let's face it, I have seen and applied for some interesting things over the past few weeks.

I dunno, guys. I think I need some sleep and a legitimate weekend off. I know we're hitting up this crazy place tomorrow night, so that's a start. We'll see how this goes.
