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.

*gets back to work*

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*

old lovers, with history

your eyes are like stars going out (one by one their twinkling is snuffed by unforgiving hands)
your colours go to darkness (pulled at the egdes by little plucking fingertips)
your pale belly is torn red shreds (prodding fingers pulling at your insides, they spill, like brightly coloured ribbons ready to play dress-up)
you are a treasure chest
which I can
close at my will
(pulling out pieces of my prize and putting them back. my fingers left slick with the feel of it. i like the feel of this chest)
swaying back and forth, i kneel beside you, buried in you up to the elbows (my fingers wrapped round your ribs, clutching at your too quick heart)
We could be like old lovers, you and i (were it not for the history pulling us down and down and down to the bottom of the sea)
if i choke on your breath, my fingers scrabbling at you lungs-
does it make you bitter? the way I take you down with me?-
I know the lay of you, my little darling
I know the lay of you, my little dear
I know the lay of you, all. the. way. through

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.

Eh, I'm not much of a v-day fan myself, mainly 'cause I find it annoying how sickly sweet the whole thing can get. But the day /after/, now that's my kinda holiday.

Go Discount Chocolate Day! *grins*

"Marionettes are like music boxes. But, whereas a marionette can be cut loose, a music box can only stop turning. I wonder which one is more free? The stringless puppet, or the motionless dancers?" - unknown

I personally think that the motionless dancers are more free.

What do you think?

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.

Hey, lookie! I've got something that's not fanfic. *does a little dance* I feel so original. *grins*

Congratulations on being the creator of a new

Evil Plan (tm)!

Your objective is simple: World Domination.
Your motive is a little bit more complex: Revenge
Stage One

To begin your plan, you must first kidnap a chosen one. This will cause the world to sign up for life insurance policies, baffled by your arrival. Who is this despoiler of all that is good and nice and true? Where did they come from? And why do they look so good as an elemental?

Stage Two

Next, you must seize control of the internet. This will all be done from a abandoned church, a mysterious place of unrivaled dark glory. Upon seeing this, the world will die in a way you just don't want to think about, as countless hordes of computer programmers hasten to do your every bidding.

Stage Three

Finally, you must send forth your armies of destruction, bringing about an unending cacophony of screams. Your name shall become synonymous with sheer dementedness, and no man will ever again dare interrupt your sentences. Everyone will bow before your cunning intelligence, and the world will have no choice but to elect you dictator for life.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I'd have to say either the Doctor from Doctor Who or Skulduggery Pleasant from the Pleasant books.

The first because the Doctor is a very interesting person as well as being highly intelligent and funny. It'd just be a lot of fun. Plus, TARDIS. I think think more needs saying there.

And Skulduggery because he'd be great to talk to and banter with. Plus, you have to love the sarcasm and the magic.

i'm in ravenclaw!

Congratulations on making Ravenclaw!

Well you're one smart little cookie, aren't you? You're wise and clever, and just love to use your wit and learning to your advantage, and sometimes even the disadvantage of others. Well, nerd, there IS a world outside of that copy of 'Hogwarts: A History', you know.. Oh don't worry! We all know you're special. You're just a naturally good learner, right? Not too much is known about your house right now.. Wow! Not only are you intellegent, you're also an enigma!

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.

"Many are the things that I would buy,
if I knew the world were being sold...
The perfect thing to say in every situation,
The answer to every question,
And, maybe,
if i had enough,
the way to win your heart.
If the world were being sold..."

It's nearly summer here and in the this merry month called May I turn 17. It's a weird thought. I was just getting used to 16, really. And now, BAM!, 17 is coming to hit me hard. There will be more to do then ever. More responsibility (I'm getting my first not-babysitting job), more things to do, learning how to not crash my car into the church, my future getting ever closer and more unavoidable and more impossible seeming...

It's just strange. Somehow, it just kinda seemed ike I'd be a kid forever. But that's not the case; so it's time to get moving and start my life.

Now, if only college wasn't so *expensive*.

So I can, so I can
Watch you weave

And I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can, so I can
Keep track of the visions in my eyes"
