I was going to do this days ago and had all this stuff planned out to write and then food poisoning and now I can't remember a darn thing. Damn you, KFC! But poketime has hit and it won't be much longer until X/Y, when we'll all probably disappear (and by "we" I mean "me") so I thought now's a good a time as any to blurt some life stuff out!
I have applied for over 60 jobs and had only 2 interviews! Yay me! My crippling lack of experience is, well...crippling. No-one will take someone my age with so little experience. So for quite some time I've been poor and miserable and feeling quite sorry for myself. You know, people never talk about how helpless or impotent you feel when you're unemployed. You have little to no ability to influence what's going on in your life because your so without resources. We had a toon of bills last month which freaked me out, and when I eventually calmed down about that my bird got sick - again, something I don't have money for. He probably has a tumor and needs surgery but I don't have a few grand to spare so painkiller's it is! He seems to be OK for now, at least.
So I guess I've been rather tied up with that. But I did manage to get this beauty:
Yaayyy! So pretty! Because that's what responsible people do when they have no money. Buy laptops! 8D Actually I keep justifying it by how darn cheap it was (around $350) for such a good machine (core i5, 4GB RAM). I love it, even if it is incredibly beaten up (it's second hand, hence the price). IT'S SO PRETTY. REALLY. I keep saying that I'm going to start writing articles and do a blog and try and make a little bit of money on the side that way (and also keep my writing skills in check) I'm just...too much of a coward T-T There are so many "what if's" with such a thing and also success can be as hard as failure, the internet being what it is. Perhaps soon...
ALSO. I'm so back into cards right now, because BF and I play a looooooot of magic. Yay cards! Which eventually lead me to discovering the way to make faaaaake caaarrrds! Yaaay!
Sylveon! Slothyshroom, I hope you don't mind me using your art, it's so cute and sparkly it just screams "make me shiny!". They come out super-blurry and bootleg-looking BUT THAT MAKES THEM SO MUCH MORE AWESOME. I wanted to make some for commissions but they're too cheap looking ^-^ Or maybe just cheap ones....IDK. Heh heh.
In good news! My job problem may be over...I've applied for a course in Aged Care! Yaaaaaay! It's only 8 weeks and there's almost defninitely a job at the end of it. It's not cheap, but it will be worth it. I'll have some security for he first time in 2 years, and it's something I'll always be able to fall back onto. Also I'll be helping people instead of won' sitting behind a desk hating myself. Unfortunately, this means....I won't be able to buy all the things! this year for poketime. :( so sad. I will get that mug though. WATCH ME. Ampharos mug all the way. Muuuuuug OMG. Also the 3DS stuff. It will be worth it holding off, though. JOB. And I'll be able to get most of it later, I'm sure.
