| I have some very good and happy news! - Mood:Good|

|I got a job!|
I'll be doing analyses for China-related policy in the US. My first post-grad school job!! And it's in my field! The pay isn't great but I've been told that's to be expected at this point. I start this Wednesday - I'm very excited!!!
This is why I haven't been on lately, by the way. The application process was very in-depth and I've been working on it for a few weeks, too busy for YT.
To celebrate, I'm getting wine-drunk and listening to The Cure. Did you know the first CD I ever bought for myself was 4:13 Dream? Nostalgia is probably making it sound better than it is. Bringing up all sorts of memories of angsty lil Sleepy sitting in her bedroom complaining about how dumb the world is.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Anyway, congrats me! I have a job, I'm no longer a drain on society. Woohoo!

| Hello, I would like one (1) motivation, please, someone come in and provide. - Mood:Good|

|I was in a play yesterday! I played a white trash alcoholic lesbian who builds a sex doll out of beer cans. We performed it at my old school for some event and it was a smash hit, a lot of people said ours was one of their favorite plays of the night.|
I built the sex doll costume. My friend and I had to drink a lot of beer to make that happen. Luckily, our friends are all in grad school and were more than happy to drink all the Natty Bo we provided.
I'd love to show you guys pics, but we have collectively decided that no pictures are going online of this thing ever. For all time.
My apartment is a MESS, I need people to give me motivation to clean it up and make it look like I'm not a 24-year-old.
Do you guys put anything fun/silly on your resume? If so, what is it? Someone recommended I do that, once, so my resume sticks out.
Come in and maybe I'll compliment you!

|And that somebody is our very own ABZ who sent me this great book!|
Thank you, Abz! I am very excited to read this at night and so thoroughly terrify myself that I can't sleep!
I'm back from NYC and getting ready to perform in a play on Friday. It's a fun little skit that only lasts about ten minutes, but I get to play a white trash drunk lesbian, so I'm excited for that.
I'm also completely rearranging my apartment. And going through all my stuff to find things to donate. I have waaaaay too much stuff and it's a hassle. So my apartment is a mess right now but it's gonna look so damn awesome when I finish with it!
I'm working on my resume and continuing to apply places.
I made someone mad today by calling Lovecraft a racist.
So that's all my news. How are you?!

|My boyfriend invited me up to NYC to see him this weekend!!!!|
He has a rare three-day weekend and I have lots of free time so we figured, hey, let's celebrate a late Valentine's Day!
And since he's the best BF ever, he brought me to see...
I KNOW, RIGHT?
Guys, oh my gosh, it was SO GOOD. We had the absolute best time. He knows me so well!
Unfortunately, he is feeling a bit under the weather - probably a cold - so most of the rest of the day we spent inside watching The Good Place! We also watched Scooby Doo on Zombie Island. He actually hates Scooby Doo (wtf right?) but he enjoyed this movie so that was fun!!

| Does anyone listen to And This Is Why We Drink? - Mood:Good|

|It's a true crime/paranormal podcast. My friend recommended it to me and I'm really enjoying it. They do two stories per episode, one is true crime, one is paranormal. The only thing I don't like is that sometimes the banter/off-topic chatter lasts forever. Other than that, it's kinda interesting.|
What podcasts are you listening to? Any that I should check out?
I need to clean my apartment. I have a bunch of clothes and old school supplies I want to donate but, uh. I don't know where to donate them?
Also I gotta get my license renewed this summer. I live in Maryland now sooooo I guess I should do it here? I don't really know how this is all gonna work. Wish I was better at being an adult person.
I have a lead on a job. Reeeeeally hoping it pulls through because I'd like it a lot, I think!
Fun fact: when I first created this profile when I was 13, I listed my occupations as... (cont)

|HELLO HELLO HELLO EVERYONE.|
Got some nifty updates for y'all. My job search is going pretty well (as well as it can for someone who has no idea what they want to do with their life) and I have some good leads on a few good positions. So here's hoping! Wish me luck!
I've also been conducting research for a project I'm working on and it is going FANTASTIC. I love doing research. I'm almost finished with the project and at the end I'm going to have something I'm really proud of. I can't wait!!
I've also gotten back into writing and am working on a few good pieces. Excited to get those out there, but they'll be on the back burner until I finish this project (will be done by this weekend).
Also, I watched Velvet Buzzsaw on Netflix the other night and it was KILLER. Loved it, will definitely be watching it again.
How are you???

|He and his girlfriend are out of town because her dad unexpectedly died. So they asked me to stay at the apartment and take care of their cute lil dog. She's the sweetest dog ever and she loves to snuggle and play and I'm realizing now how much I miss having a pet. I can't afford one right now and my apartment is too small for one, anyway. But it's nice having the company, you know?|
I've gotten back into my writing. Sorta took a back seat during grad school, but I've written quite a bit the last few weeks. Mostly flash fiction with a few longer stories that I'm working on.
I watched I Saw the Devil on Hulu last night. Wasn't expecting it to be very good... holy shxt. It got dark fast.
I don't have much in the way of interesting stuff to talk about. Life is kinda boring right now. My old boss and coworker are still fighting and trying to get me to fix everything even though (cont)
