resolutions [Nov. 1st, 2006|06:48 am]

[Current Mood |sicksick]

I have made an informal resolution which more than likely will not pan out but I will consider nonetheless: I should go out more during the week. It's been a hectic semester. It's getting more crazy. I'm behind in everything. My email inboxes are overwhelming me. I'm going crazy. But it's something to mull over. Because despite the fact that I wasn't at my best this morning it was more pleasant spending eight hours at work after a great night.

I ended up at a classy bar, with people dressed up and all, last night. It was pretty deserted. The view of the river and the city was shiny and dazzling. The kicker: There was a famous former hockey player sitting at the next table. We didn't sit by them. They came and sat beside us. In a pretty empty place. The guy who took the group shot, I'm more than sure I've seen on television. It was an exciting night.

law [Oct. 22nd, 2006|09:54 pm]

I think I'm going to apply to law school.

Since I finish in December I don't know if I should wait, get a job, and then apply in the respective city I end up in. Three years of school sounds absolutely dreadful right now. I managed to get out of this degree in a year and a half which is a plus. But I'm looking into law firms right now as potential employment and it stirred that law tug. I took the LSATs and started the general applications but never finished when I got accepted where I currently am. It would be nice to see whether or not I made the right choice--> but I also want to know if I could have actually gotten in or if I could now.

I haven't heard a response (except one rejection for an interview) since I have started this job search process. That has me a little distressed.

prospective jobs, exams, and fluff [Sep. 28th, 2006|04:46 pm]
Pink Lilies
Today I applied to three job positions at a rather reputable news medium. I don't think they'll call me. But it doesn't hurt to try, does it? The plan of attack for this job thing is to try and get out ten resumes a week. I'm sort of behind so I have to write eleven cover letters by five tomorrow. 

I have an exam that is due in less than four hours. I only have half of it written. I am sitting in the lab on the third floor. I went and bugged the people in the office. I think people think I'm crazy. I don't really care anymore. 

I am tired beyond belief. I was about five minutes late to work this morning given the fact that I woke up half an hour before. It was bad. I even haven't started the internship yet. I do on Monday. So we'll see what other tiredness will feel like. The main culprit of this is the fact that I have started to read like crazy for, you know, leisure. I don't know what caused the change. I used to not read through the last year of high school and then most of college though I dabbled a bit here and there. But now, I'm like on some sort of reading marathon. It's insane. I must have read more than ten books this month alone. That hasn't happened... like ever I think.

firsts [Sep. 16th, 2006|05:10 pm]

I had two new firsts within about twenty four hours of each other:

1. Last night my sister drove down from school and we went out to a comic's club. It was very lovely and funny. We had great drinks and food. I would totally go back.  On the way home, in the car, we danced to one of the new songs that are turning their tunes on the radio. 

2. I spent the day with my aunt. Bought a really cool black dress that turned out to be on sale. On the way home I stopped at Target and then down the street at a gas station to fill up a little. I only took my car keys and ATM card. Somehow, my trunk and door keys fell off and were on the floor. I locked the doors. So I had one of the attendants break my passenger door lock. Neither one of us were able to pick it. In these types of circumstances I thought that it would be divine to know how to pick your own lock. My parents are out of the country and my sister drove back to school. There was really no one within proximity to call nor did I have their number! Damn you cell phone for disabling one's function of memory. So yeah. I can't wait till my dad freaks out tomorrow when he sees the passenger door lock. "Someone tried to break into the car!!!!", he'll say. My response: "Daddy, it was me."

I am currently really interested in the power of youtube. It's quite divine.

I just reread some of my lj posts. It doesn't sound like me. I don't know why. Maybe expression in different forms translates variously.

I am almost done my article review for the week. I have to go to campus to submit it though. Boo to that. It's not due till midnight but I most likely will not want to go after work.

I gave my two weeks notice at the weekend job. I think the HR person was mad. (!!!) (I myself had half a pint of chocolate Haagen Dazs after I got home.) They love me but this particular wedding and trip with the sis is more important... and then the internship in the fall is more important as well as the week job.  Plus with subtracting and adding variables in my life, it's nice to contain some semblance of sanity.  Which I don't have right now I can tell you that. But that's okay. For now.

my favorite people [May. 30th, 2006|06:29 pm]

One of my favorite Dutch people is going to be on this side of the planet later this year. Her boyfriend is doing an internship at UN Headquarters in the fall. I told her we (plus a cool and down to earth Iowan) should ring in the New Year in Times Square together. It would be so great to see them all!

I just opened my email and there was an intern posting for the CNN library. I would love to do it. In the great capital of the United States. But it's not possible and I am bummed. They better hire me in the future though. Sign.

interview [Feb. 20th, 2006|11:15 am]
Pink Lilies
I telephone interviewed someone today: in my pink slippers, my pink VS polka-dotted pjs, hair pulled back. It was the quickest interview ever. I was a bit nervous at first. Maybe because of the structure. But it went well. My interviewee was very nice and charming.

All I keep thinking is that I'm glad I brushed my teeth before the interview.

dreadiness [Feb. 18th, 2006|01:08 am]

I absolutely dread opening my email. This has been going on for a week. It has to stop. I almost ruined my Monday interview with the most powerful Canadian female in the entertainment business. I am so whigging out about that. I have the questions all set and everything since her assistant wanted them early. As well, unprofessional me has not gotten back to my supervisor at the library who want me to teach some sort of workshop over spring break. I meant to get her my details about spring break and the week preceding but I did not. Hence, now I have to find someone to work for me the Thursday before, as she sent out the schedule till then. Arrgh.

Weeks are going by too fast.

Yes. I'm home on a Friday night. I am beat with a B-E-A-T. My plan to take an hour jog tomorrow is looking dimmer by the minute.

A word of advice: Never help your parents move. They will call you at all hours to ask you where stuff is. Yes, I moved the whole house. Yes, I have no idea where anything is. I had like one breakdown a day during the move. I packed everything. It's their job to unpack the stuff I did not. It's been like seven months.

responsibility [Jan. 23rd, 2006|12:12 am]
Pink Lilies
Too much of responsibility is too... too... overwhelming?

I really have no responsibility. But it's preventing me from checking my email. Which is totally unprofessional. I should. But I'm stalling. I should contact a few dozen people. But I just don't want to. I don't know why.
