A post in which I am insane and do not act smart.

SCHOOL IS HARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111111111111111111111!!!!!!!!11!
So I had to write a news release that's going to be mashed with my co-workers news release (our decision) and I have no clue if I did it right.. well I guess we'll find out tomorrow.
I also have to interview someone in the PR field... well I just sent out 6 emails (we should have found 10) and then I had no idea what to say. I'm used to cold calling people and being like "talk to me about your life and why it sucks" and now I'm emailing and trying to sound polite and gah. I had several "business etiquette email" websites open helping me write those. Bah. Bah. Gah. Bah.

So much stress... and now I'm going to do my hair and wear my new hat. OMG It's a 1920s style Cloche hat of all places Old Navy had them for 16 bucks with 75% off I paid 4 dollars! So excited.

OMG I also have to have a PR related blog that maintains professionalism and covers pr stuff......... current stuff...... IDEK. My stress level is high.

Also I feel like a responsible adult when I accomplish even simple tasks... that probably means I'm not super grown up.

I'm going back to school! I'm taking a year long program and it starts September 6th! This means I get to go from full time at my dead end job to part time at my dead end job!!!!!! Maybe I will be able to finally make something of myself! I'm really excited. I just have to meet with the financial person so they can sign off on my loan and give me any left over money.

As of now I'm listening to my favourite fictional band Infant Sorrow because Russell Brand is funny as Aldous Snow.

OMG JEM IS COMING TO DVD THIS FALL!!! I keep realizing that and getting excited.

In spite of the dark stuff that's happening that I'm refusing to acknowledge I feel hopeful that the future will bring some good. At the very least I'm going back to school and I'll have a year of that school feeling I missed so much.

Books from Gilmore Girls

So I found a website that listed all the books Rory read during the first four seasons of Gilmore Girl. I'm a fan of reading things that are named in movies and books so I'm going to attempt this list. Except War and Peace that book is boring and I've been a quarter of the way through it for about 3 years I just have to accept it's not going to happen. I don't know how long I'm giving myself for this but it's going to be interesting since I'm going back to school for a year in September and holding down a job and finding an internship and helping my mom sell things online and trying to socialize,

Applying for student loans I'm terrified I'll be rejected for. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I AM GOING TO PAY FOR SCHOOL THIS YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's amazing how a threat of a 25000 dollar fine and years in prison can make me super honest. I saved my application with one page to go so I could review my information and make sure I was being 100% honest. I rolled my eyes at myself, it's ok.

Writer's Block: Arms wide open

If you had to choose, what couple from TV, cinema, or literature, would you choose as your parents?

Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. Aside from the obvious factor of never wanting for anything because they're so wealthy they genuinely care about each other. There would be no insane fights. Also there house is amazing.

I'm a ginger so I'd fit in with the Weasley's as well because they are awesome.

I'm debating changing my userpic. It's not that I'm tired of Dobby, I love my little elf. I just have a bunch of userpics (and more space to get more) so now I don't know what to change it to. Hmmmmmm.

Sick, confused, tired.

I have so many thoughts it's almost impossible to focus. Ugh. Work is horrible right now. I'm in a department of all women and they just turn on you in a second. It's worse because we're all adults so technically shouldn't we just be acting like humans and treating each other if not nicely then politely? I want to slam my face into the computer screen every five seconds.

Politics are freaking me out. Canada is going into an election and it's bringing crazies out on facebook. Everyone is entitled to their opinions but why do they all have to be extremist views about everything? GUNS ARE BAD LET'S GET RID OF ALL GUNS. GUNS ARE GOOD EVERYONE NEEDS MORE GUNS. BOO PRISONS ARE BAD KILL ALL THE PRISONERS. PRISONS HELP PEOPLE GET THEIR LIVES ON TRACK YAY PRISONS. I can't even follow these thoughts anymore.

I just read The Hunger Games trilogy. I love these books so much now. I'm so excited there is going to be a movie! I can't wait to see it. It did make me think about 2012 and what's currently going with the natural disasters. 2012 isn't something that's supposed to happen at once not like Y2K (I can't believe we were terrified that electronics were going to revert to 1900). The Mayan calendar ends at 2012 because that's simply when they stopped counting. People are attributing all of the natural disasters/current wars to the world ending which is kind of a self fulfilling prophecy, isn't it? The Hunger Games had a line about how their world changed due to natural disasters changing the land scape. That is what's happening but it could have happened at any time. Maybe nature thinks "Yea we let those guys expand for a really long time but mostly they're killing us so we're going to have to take back the land?" We've been growing more and building more and higher for a really long time. We've had a hundred years of amazing growth with cities, amazing amounts of technological movements. Is it time to take a moment and pause for nature's sake?

I'm still sick. I've been sick for a few days and right now I'm really dizzy which is freaking me out like no other. Medicine is also making me slightly incoherent. The other day I called in to work and all I remember saying is "Oh shit" because that is obviously a very appropriate sick call. So tired. I bet this whole post makes no sense. I should stop typing.

comfort sad MJ


I was just trying to organize things.
there was a spider. I cannot cope right now. It was huge and fast and it knew I was going to try to kill it and it tried to eat a dead spider and it was scary and omg omg omg omg omg omg omg.
Green shoe thank for your courageous moment I really applaud your killer skills. I'm shaking from this encounter and normally I'm indifferent to spiders but this one was freaking scary.
I should never attempt to clean and organize. I don't want to touch anything on my dresser now. OMGOMGOMGOMG.


WHAT IF IT HAS FRIENDS?! Although considering how it tried to eat the dead spider it probably has frenimies.


The caps represent my terror just so we're clear.

Writer's Block: Supersize me

Have you ever boycotted a company or product? If so, what was it, and what caused you to boycott it?

I haven't had McDonald's in about 3 years. They are just super unhealthy and no matter what you pick there is no "healthy" option. I tend to not eat fast food for a similar reason though.
