Stuff I did on my mini working vacation:

  • Introduced myself to the college library staff and let them know I applied for the full-time job there, so they know my face now.

  • Met many dogs! So many dogs!

  • Hung out with [personal profile] orangerful! We had lunch and she showed me *her* library, and I am jealous of her rad desk space.

  • Got up to 20k in my WIP, have gotten through the copying/pasting/editing part, and on to the transcribing from my notebook part. Progress!

  • Started my letter writing project, the impetus for which will be made clear in my fangirl-heavy Doom Patrol review which I haven't posted yet. (It'll make sense eventually.)

  • Visited many bookstores, record stores, and ice cream shops, and picked up Mother Panic. Very nearly picked up The Black Parade on vinyl as well, despite the fact that I really can't afford it right now and already have THREE separate copies of the same album. (The original, the collector's box set, and the 10 year anniversary edition, if you're wondering.)


ANYWAY. Had a most excellent trip. The first couple days were hard though. Way more social interaction than I prepared for. Pro-tip: if someone is taking a five hour drive to come see you, don't force them to meet a house full of brand new people on the first day. Jesus. (On the upside: dogs. Many dogs in this house full of people. Which means many opportunities to hide in corners and cuddle them.)

Downside: I got a call from the IT department while I was there, and I didn't get that job. Sigh. I just don't have enough experience with the specific programs they're using. Which isn't as soul-crushing as it could be, since this other job is higher on my list anyway.

It'll be much easier going up next time if I need to. Fingers crossed! I'm totally qualified for this one. Please, let me get this job and relocate.

Wishing you so much luck.

Also have you seen umbrella academy is going to be made into a series by Netflix?

I didn't realize it was live action but I did see he was going to be working on it so I'm gonna hope it meets his approval.

Huh interesting. I'm definitely going to give it a go even though I never read them.

I've never been into reading comics but I have all the danger days ones. But I'll definitely watch the series. I'm more into watching my comics

So glad you had fun on your mini-vacation! I'm sorry about that IT job. Sending good vibes and crossing all my fingers for the college library job!

And YAY! for lots of doggies and making progress on you WiP. Can't wait to see what this "letter writing project" is that you speak of.

Ohhh, Doom Patrol looks crazy and fun. Don't know when I will get to it, but it's going on The List.

Ack, long drive followed by house full of people sounds super exhausting! Pets are such a lifesaver in those situations. Glad there were swarms of dogs.

Sorry you didn't get the IT job. Fingers crossed for the other job so you can move out and experience new things!

I have such a long List too. Thank god for libraries.

Same. Cannot imagine what my childhood or teen years would've been like without them.

Ugh, I'm sorry about the library job. I'm guessing academic library jobs must be a lot tougher to get! But next time! Opportunities open up.
