putsch: ([earthbound] bffs)
my birthday was on tuesday. i'm 22! it's kind of disgusting how old I am, and how much my life is going to change in the next month. but I had fun, my only class for the day started late and got out early, I just relaxed by myself, got sushi for dinner with my friends, then came back to my room with them and had dessert wine and sweets. can't ask for much more than that.

oh and saturday my parents came down, we went to the mall and I bought myself a dress for graduation and got dinner. it was fun except for my dad grilling me about jobs and me nearly breaking down into tears 3 different times in the restaurant. thanks dad!

my thesis is due next friday
i have a presentation for a research paper on wednesday (the actual paper isn't due till the 2nd)
i have my human evolution portfolio due thursday

senior week and graduation is right around the corner, and if i live to see them it will be a miracle.

seriously my thesis is a total mess, i haven't started the research paper. the only thing i'm not worried about is the portfolio. sob!!! i should be working now and not typing this entry but fuq dah popo

well i hope you are all doing better than i am!!
*slams face back into the cheese grater of college work

you know how sometimes things seem crazy and then they only get crazier?

that is my life right now.

First of all, I have an exam tomorrow morning. I have not properly studied for it which is why I'm doing that now. GO ME!
Tomorrow I also have to meet with my thesis adviser and somehow bullshit that I've written more than 6 pages to make her not get all up on my case about my progress. HAH. Also the president's dinner is at 6pm... i could skip it but it's free and my friends who went last week said the food was pretty good so i don't really want to.

Then on Wednesday I have my second job interview at 10:30 in the morning IN philadelphia, and then class 1-4pm in bryn mawr. GREAT!

Thursday is the Anthropology Tea.

Friday I told the Working America (who I interviewed with last week) that I would go in with them for a "day on the job", which basically means you go in and hang out with the crew for a full work day to see what they do. The thing is, even though the company seems nice, I already don't want the job at all. It's door to door campaigning monday through friday in Philadelphia 4-9pm, even if it does pay 11.50$ per hour and we do work in pairs it still seems fucking weird to work 1:30-10PM and be expected to get X amount of signatures and raise X amount of dollars per week. Hell even at my interview they mentioned that they are just hiring a ton of people now and will probably do serious cut backs after the elections in November. YEAH WOW THAT REALLY MAKES ME WANT TO FUCKING WORK WITH YOU!!


I don't really have a choice in the matter because it's either take job or deal with the insane wrath of my parents. What I'm hoping is that the interview on wednesday goes well enough where I can just call into Working America and tell them no, I don't want to do this, peace out broski.

Somewhere in the middle of all of this shit, I have to write more of my thesis and work on my human evolution skull portfolio because like a grade a idiot i did no work over the weekend. although to be fair my parents and brother were around all day saturday and then i went drinking cause it was st patty's so hah...................

TO MAKE MATTERS MORE RIDICULOUS, about half an hour ago one of my closest friends from abroad texted me saying he's in Philadelphia until Thursday. Which means if I want to see him I have to somehow squeeze time in on Tuesday or Wednesday which are already hectic as FUCK. He hasn't gotten back to me but I'm assuming whatever time he wants to meet up is going to be insane for me anyway.

I'm already freaking out. I tried to spend today relaxing, getting work done (and I did get quite a bit of writing done), but instead I'm just turning into a stress mess. I've realized I'm not going to get a proper night's sleep until finals are over and done with. I fucking hate this game.

On that note, I need to start calling back to jobs I've already applied to, but I really don't want to. 99% of the jobs I've applied to I'm clearly under-qualified for, I just threw my application out there in hopes of getting anything. And really if no one gets back to me, what's the chance of me calling and them being like "oh shit! we forgot to get back to you! we loved it!" i'll probably just get told off. I really don't want to deal with that shit right now. or ever.

For now, I'm going to try and cram more information about paranthropus and austropithicus before my eyes explode out of my head, maybe have a beer, try to get at least a few hours of sleep.
putsch: ([gintoki] no 1 currr)
I've got my first job interview later today! I'm a little nervous and a little unsure because the company sounds legit but the job itself sounds shitty. Working hours 1-10:30? Door to door asking for signatures and money? Yeah, um, okay. Maybe not...

I'm also trying to get an interview with US PIRG, because it sounds interesting but they keep wanting to schedule me for interviews at times when I have other commitments and can't haul ass into Philly and back.

And every other place I've applied to? Nothing. Not a peep. Shit sucks.

Tomorrow I gotta go into the arcade again, gather a little extra research for ze thesis. Saturday my parents and brother are coming down, so as my parents go into Philly for a retirement party for one of dad's old friends me and my brother can sit around all afternoon and play video games. 100% pumped for that. It's also St. Patty's day, which means I can go to rock afterwards and drink. Huzzah!

Things have been pretty eventful around here. Skullgirls is coming out on April 4th, Legend of Korra is coming out on April 14th, Undocumented students at my school are getting arrested, I'm single handedly planning the anthro tea, I've got an exam next Tuesday, my favorite professor agreed to be my second reader, and a thesis to write all before April 27th! CRAZINESS I SAY!
putsch: ([hyuuga] blood bath)
spring break is over
back at bryn mawr
already missing video games that aren't on my poopy internet steam connection
did not miss loud annoying people across the hall
not so secretly want to kill them

life is surreal right now. i'm in the last month and a half of my college career, working my ass off on my thesis and trying to find a job. how did this happen? why is it happening? searching for jobs is like whoring out except you're trying to work at a really nice club when you have herpes. trying to hide all the horrible flaws so you don't get abused/can find work outside of a truck stop. it's ridiculous in every way. gotta start doing follow ups too. and writing. so much writing.

fuckin' a dude.

so i've been playing street fighter x tekken hardcore since last night

let me just talk forever no biggie )

other than playing the shit out of this game i've been applying to jobs for after college & working on my thesis. my parents have been 6 feet up my ass about me applying to jobs every day, my dad thinks i should be sending out at least 50 applications before monday. okay dad. you think that!

silly dad.
