Some new developments... not really

Okay, so I've been pretty meh lately. I've been looking for a job for about a month and have had one interview and one project/interview thing, so I'm not completely emo about it, but at the same time a bit disheartened.

Anyway so in the meantime I've started growing some plants. Yes plants, that's all you're going to get, because implications are bad and certain plants have implications. wink wink.

Anyway, the growing is fun and I'm enjoying it, but it's a lot more work than I thought it would be. More work and more money.

Eh, it's kind of an experiment that I hope turns out well. I don't really have a lot else going on.

In fannish news, I started writing a Sam/Gabriel-ish fic that I really want to see through. It's a five things fic and I think I can make it work. The fic was there, it was like begging me to write it, I've got one out of the six parts done, but I've still got a bit of episode re-watching to do and then I've got to sit and just write the other five parts.

I'm like SUPER rusty at writing fic. I have the problem where I'm visual and I see everything, and then to take the pictures and actions and dialogue and turn it into words, good writing, actual good writing, is like really hard. I never thought it was easy by any stretch, but I've written a lot of stuff in the past few years that wasn't fic that sounded eloquent and interesting and even creative. It's just different with fic I guess.

Anyway, I think I'm gonna go clean the kitchen or something.

Happy Wednesday y'all.

P.S. I love my new mood theme!! The old one was great but it was like all season one and two. This one was created sometime last year I think. Made by vt_graphics.


I know how you feel RE the writing. I'm mostly an audio person, but I'm high up there on the visual, too. Getting the tones and mental images across can be a real challenge, sometimes. *HUGS* Good luck, hon.

P.S. It's good to see you on my friends list again, I've missed you. ^__^
Awww! Hi there! I've missed you too! RL was like kind of a pain for a while, so meh.

How have you been?
I'm okay-ish. Got back from visiting authoressnebula last Saturday, definitely missing her and already wishing I could go back. Hell, I was wanting that before my plane took off from Dulles.

I was busy today, though. We're moving stuff out of a storage unit into the garage, so we've been clearing out the garage today and actually moving stuff out of storage tomorrow. But I got Taco Bell for lunch and Mom's getting Round Table pizza for dinner, so I guess that's a fair trade.

Overall, though, feeling very meh about my life right now. I need a job, but I have no work experience and no references. Mom suggested looking for temp work, but I need my driver's license for that, which I'm not looking forward to because I'm terrified of getting in an accident.

Soooo, yeah, that's the state of me, right now.
Awww, we're in similar boats.

Driving isn't too bad, it's fun when you can just drive alone down the road with the radio going.

I'm having Taco Bell for dinner LOL.

I need a job too, I actually had a temp job in the fall and as someone who kind of knows I highly suggest against it. The one that I had basically threw me away like trash without any explanation. Which apparently as a contract type of job they're allowed to do. It like really fucked me up emotionally for a long time and I'm just getting over it now, over six months later, and I still don't think I'll be okay completely for a long time.

I guess it really comes down to what type of work environment you want, I wanted something fun and with co-workers and team members, and so now I kind of know what to look for when it comes to job hunting.

I also think that when it comes to jobs, even if it's Part time at like Blockbuster or GameStop or something at least you're working on your terms and you can quit any time. When I was on my contract job, they were allowed to terminate me at any time so they did. It took my control of the situation away and was badness.

You might look into like reception work, or maybe mail room jobs, I have a cousin who started working at Nationwide Insurance in the mail room, it was entry level, and he's been there for about 8 years. He likes the job okay and it's a nice steady paycheck. *shrug*

I'm rooting for you though, I hope everything works out. :) *hugs*
Unfortunately, empty roads are a rarity out here unless I go out at oh-dark-thirty at night. That's part of the reason why I miss Neb so much, there's a lot of open road out there, so I feel like I would be more comfortable learning to drive out there than here in So Cal. :-\

LOL *cue Twilight Zone theme*

That's really lame. I'd probably be messed up, too, after something like that. *HUGS*

I'd kind of like someplace where I could make friends, since I don't have many. *shrugs* I'm kinda hesitant about temp work because of the Repetitive Stress Injury in my right shoulder. I'd have to get up and do stretches every hour or so, which would be a bit of a drawback for any employers.

At this point, my only viable option seems to be working at McDonald's or something. I dunno.

Thanks, sweetie, right back at you. *hugs back*
I'll be excited to read anything you come up with!
Awww Thanks darlin'!
