The job search…. AAAAAUUUUUUGGGGHHHH!!!!!!

Standard

I’m looking for employment…

It …

Is….

Frustrating…

I’ve being applying online…

Unreliable…

This process is intimidating… I always find myself a tad bit over whelmed.

So many questions.

90% are the same question over and over again!

It’s like a interrogation!

“Where did you graduate high school?”

2 questions later…

“Where did you graduate high school?”

2 questions later…

“ARE YOU SURE YOU’RE NOT LYING ABOUT GRADUATING FROM HIGH SCHOOL?!”

2 questions later…

**”WE KNOW YOU’RE LYING! WHERE ARE YOU HOUSING THE NUCLEAR WEAPONS!!!”

Nonetheless this is definitely an experience…

In other related news:

Twitter recently released their video sharing app vine. I LOVE IT! But, it doesn’t seem to have many users yet. I made this ridiculous video as a reaction to my job search stress.  I personally find it to be a like the video version of a tweet. What do you guys think of vine?

Employment

Videos like that are probably why Vine isn’t popular yet…That is fair…

**This is a slight exaggeration

Now I’m 24.

Standard

Today is my 24th b-day. All I can think is “When the hell did that happen?”

  • Buffy the vampire slayer is 15 years old. I remember the first night I watched it. I was in love from the start. A stylish girl who is a total bad-ass, what’s not to love? I was kind of an odd nerdy recluse. I rarely talked to anyone who wasn’t my family and I was so awkward it hurt. It was 1997 and I was 9 years old. I thought the Spice girls could save the world

    I actually owned this poster.

    (I have seen Spice World 203 times and still counting). I think that’s when I first realized that I wasn’t cool (well not yet anyway). You know how you spend a large portion of your childhood not understanding why people would ever not like what you liked? You hadn’t fully grasped the concept of opinions, so naturally yours is the only one that made any sense. I always knew who I wanted to be, but I had no clue what that even meant yet. I thought my 5th grade teacher was the coolest person I’d ever know. She was 23 fresh out of college and the wore the cutest clothes. What if last year I was teaching a 5th grade class? I could never handle that pressure. I wonder what happened to her? I wonder what happened to Ms.LaMonto?

It’s so weird to have my childhood be 2 decades old. When people mention the 90’s, I automatically think “oh, yeah 10 years ago”. Sometimes I still expect to turn on the t.v and see toonami playing. But, I wake up and realize that the only way I could do that is to watch it on my laptop. It’s crazy how much time I spend using technology. When  I was 6 I was watching my sister type a paper on a typewriter. When I was13, I thought I wanted to be a writer and start my own zine. I guess my blog is close enough…

  • The Lion king is 18 years old. It was the first movie I ever saw in theaters.I was 6 years old and it changed my life. It was the first time I actually understood what was going on in a movie and at the time I was a daddy’s girl. When Mufasa died, I yelled his name at top of my lungs in the theater in despair. (It was also the first time I remember being embarrassed.) I already had my life planned out. By the time I was 23 I wanted to be a fire fighting Power Ranger with 3 Olympic medals. Well, I guess plans change… I was obsessed with super heroes. I watched x-men religiously. I thought batman was the coolest. I loved that he used innovation and creativity to make himself super. I was smarter than I knew. Sometimes, I was too smart for my own good. I watched Jurassic Park on VHS that year. The moment I watched I knew I was totally in love with film. I thought I knew a lot of things. I always wanted to know more.

    Jurassic Park is also the first time I laid my eyes on Jeff Goldblum. I’ve been in love ever since.

Sometimes, I have this false sense of maturity. I feel “now that I’m ___ years old” I can’t act like that anymore. Sometimes I think I’m too mature for everything. A wise woman once told me ” Maturity isn’t not simply not doing childish things. Maturity is knowing when it’s appropriate to do or say any childish thought  that runs through your head. Maturity is socialization” Being the world oldest undergrad, I sometimes forget that I’m not actually old. In fact, I’m still Very young. It’s a dangerous thing to forget. I think too many people forget.

  • I was so in love with him. I thought he was singing my angsty soul.

    Morning View by the band Incubus is 11 years old. I almost played a hole in that CD. I was 13 years old. I had just realized all the reasons why I was uncool. Well… at least I thought I did. There were a million things I wanted to change about myself. The last thing I would ever call myself was pretty. I wore my clothes 2 sizes too big, I always slouched, and I pretty much thought I hated the human race (welcome to being a teenager!). I just started Harry Potter (I was late because I thought I was too cool for it) but once I started reading that’s the moment I gave up trying to be cool. It turns it out, when you don’t try to be cool you totally are cool. I started making real friends. But, man did I hate school. I felt like I was in jail. Hell, sometimes I still do feel like I’m collegiate prison. From the age of 13-18 I struggled to like myself. Looking back on it now, it seemed Like a complete waste of time. You have so much more fun when you think you’re awesome.

I sometimes pride myself on everything I’ve learned and then I get immediately terrified when I realize how much I still have to learn. I look back on my teenage years and think “why was such a bitch?”. At the time I thought I knew everything in the world. It’s scary to think about how much I don’t now. It’s terrifying to know that my future self will probably say “What a dumbass I was when I was when I was 24”. I guess all I can do is keep collecting memories.

Happy B-day to me!

Top 5 of the Month!

Standard

Seeing as how I’ve epic-ally failed at posting once a week I’m catching up with my top 10 obsessions of this month. These are just random things I’m into this month (in no particular order). Like…

Grey’s Anatomy 

I used to have a guilty pleasure. I would watch episode after episode as a did my homework. I learned a little bit about medicine as I oggled the sexy surgeons and constantly compared my life to the over dramatic mess that was the character’s lives. I used to feel guilty about loving this show but now I don’t care! I love Grey’s! As lame as it my be I love it!

How can you NOT love this?

Kimbra

Have to thank my gays for this one. I was desperately seeking music that would fill the hole that Amy Winehouse’s death had left and I was referred this. Don’t get me wrong, she’s no Amy but she is damn good. It’s like if Florence, Adele, and Amy had a love child this would be her voice! The video says it all!!!

 

New Girl

Who’s that girl? It’s Jess!! Okay, I’ll be honest, saying this show is mediocre is an understatement of epic proportions . But, I love Zooey! Her cloths are cute and I have a few Schmits in my life. It’s Jess!!

I just Love Zooey!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Louis C.K.

I first saw Louis C.K. on Conan   O’brien a few years ago. Ever since, I’ve been in love with everything he’s done. His stand up is hilarious and now we get full episodes!!

 

 

Legend of Zelda

I finally did it! For the past few years I had the same tattoo in all of my dreams and I finally got it!!!! The Zelda Tri-force has been a symbol in my life for some time. I was worried I would look like every other nerd around but it came out pretty awesome actually.

Looks pretty spiffy, if I do say so myself!!

But now that I finally got it I’ve gotten back into Zelda Ocarina of Time. It’s my personal favorite Zelda game.

 

 

Early 90’s fashion comes back: WHY?????

Standard

I was walking through campus the other day and was absolutely disgusted by what I saw. Girls in mom shorts, hammer pants, awful patterns on  awful jumpers with awful tapering. Through out my educational career, I’ve learned that we learn about history to avoid making the same mistakes. I think fashion should be included in this!!!

Recently, me and my roommate have started to watch Melrose Place. We laugh constantly at the ridiculous fashion choices and than are immediately saddened by the fact that we’ve seen at least 3 people wearing he exact same outfit. WHY???? These incredibly unflattering silhouettes are upsetting! I thought the 80’s coming back was bad but who knew it could get worst!

Women of the world, I am taking a stand. I love fashion and I’m usually the first to stand by a ridiculous trends (I have 8 pairs of skinny jeans for god sakes!), but the buck stops here! I cannot get on board with this! Ladies, please stand with me and say no to jumpers, mom jeans, and shoulder pads! Nah I say! NAH!
