The degree to which me exercising this morning was an unmitigated failure is really disheartening.

cut for whining and woe-is-meing )

On the other hand, I'm going to try to get out and just walk since the weather is supposed to be so nice.

So I had a job interview today. It would've been an okay job, but really production heavy and not creative at all.

So I guess it's fair that after I showed him my portfolio (that he was blown away by) he said, and I quote: "...This is really awkward. The guy who was here right before you just came off a production job so he's more of what we need right now. But you present yourself great and the interview was good! You'll have no trouble finding a job."

...Except for that reason you turned me down for, huh.

OH WELL. THERE WILL BE A BRIGHT TOMORROW. And I may hobnob with designers tonight. Depends on how I feel.

Mostly I just figured this journal needed mundane things.

Just finished Les Chansons d'Amour/Love Songs as per [personal profile] thankyoukindly's suggestion.

IT WAS GREAT. THE MUSIC WAS GOOD. THERE WAS GAY AND HOT PEOPLE.




I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HAPPENED.


I love French films :')
I HAVE A SHIRT UP FOR VOTING ON THREADLESS.


PLEASE GO VOTE HERE!

That is all.
So tonight I went to a French conversation group! It was awesome. Everyone was really nice and the host, Marcel, was super pleasant and very good with the fact it turns out I don't speak hardly any French. But it was the first meeting and the listening practice was awesome. We did introductions and talked about the striking system in France and... various other things as well. I will def. do it again and I will probably try to brush up on my own between now and then.

The best part of the evening was before the group, though.

So, I was waiting for my bus at the stop and there were a bunch of people around and this older guy walks by and then does a double take and comes back.

Him: "vat nationality are you?"

I wanted to practice! And honestly my policy when creepy people approach me is to pretend I don't know what they're saying. So I said "je suis française. De France" and he proceeded to speak to me in russian/english/french (luckily i knew more than him on the french part)

"I am Soviet. You know? These American kids... they are crazy. Idiots" (in a french accent) It continued in this way, with a little bit of pidgin French, some Russian, some English. Until I was unresponsive enough that he would leave.

On the plus side, there was a girl my age who I made contact with after the encounter so I ran over to her to freak out, and she was really sweet. A graphic design student at UW who was going to go to SCAD! And she speaks a little French. What are the odds, really. She's sweet though and now we're facebook friends and maybe we will hang out.

ALL IN ALL A GOOD NIGHT. JUST. JUST WEIRD.
Rough seas ahead, stop.
Full on distractions needed, stop.
Hope everyone had a nice Christmas, stop.


And so as not to spam your reading pages (but because this fits in with this one):

Okay, a few people have been asking, re: my meeting today.

A little background for those just tuning in: I got a call on Friday from a creative staffing firm (after I had applied for a job) sounding very excited about my work! And wanting to try to place me right away! So I had an informational today with him. In bullet points!

-THEIR OFFICES WERE SO NICE.
-He loooooves my work
-He does not normally offer to place junior/entry level positions, so I'm special.
-He made a point to stress that I was one of maybe ten people he calls to interview, out of the 100+ who apply each week.
-He was really impressed with my presentation.

BUT

-The place that has an immediate opening doesn't want me as I have no experience.
-However, they didn't slam the door.
-So he is going to try to get me in with at least an informational, if not a lower hourly rate than he normally would push. 10% DISCOUNT ON THE NEWLY GRADUATED. That's. Honestly what it is.

But I'm energized. Even if it doesn't happen immediately, he seemed very intent in making this work. I have a person to network with! I have someone representing me in the field! And he's a nice guy!

Overall I feel accomplished. And damn I looked nice.

OKAY. SO. DUDES (in the non-gendered sense. Just. PRETEND YOU'RE ALL RIDING HORSES AND THEN IT'S APPROPRIATE).

I'M SUPPOSED TO GET MY HOLIDAY CARDS BACK FROM THE PRINTER TODAY hopefully they will be amazing.

The thing is, I ordered a very generous 75 for use for my entire family. I think my mom will use 25 and my sister like... 10. so that leaves me with 40 cards to send out! AND I PLAN TO. Is this madness? ONLY TIME WILL TELL.

Also they're my favorite cards yet. I mean. Just saying they're awesome and you all want them. I will send them overseas and overland! Even to Canada, if you can believe it!

SO YOU KNOW THE DRILL. Answer here with your:

name (i am not above writing really embarrassing things here unless you specify)
address!

WOW THAT WAS SO EASY!

It is all screened! Make the order worth it!

My sister is a genius and everyone should read her 8th grade journals.

Read it! Comment on it! Become a fan on facebook!

I think it is super rad. Plus, she wanted to be me, just for a day :')
*Balthier is now known as *Sir^Snugglebums

*Sir^Snugglebums is now known as *Sir^Snugglebums^Fluffybritches

They've all acquired some version of their name, but Sir Snugglebums Fluffybritches is my favorite.



No one should let me name/nickname things. Last thing I got to name before the cats was our ghost at school: Rodrigo Francesco Martino Von Waldo IV.

I just did my first job on my freelance contract job. It took me over three hours, but I did it and it's submitted \o/

It took so long because I'm exhausted and at nine, when he finished going through everything he was like "whelp, there's a job up that no one else is going to do. Good luck!" So, I fumbled my way through it, but managed it in the end! Hopefully I won't have to do like a billion revisions, but whatevs.

Physically exhausted. I think my less-than-full-night's sleep has been getting to me, plus lugging my stuff around Victoria and the TWO (not one, but TWO) human pyramids mean my muscles are going "nnnnghhhhhh".

Still feeling sick every day. Should really work on that.

Overall, doing fairly well /o/

YAAAAAAAY SOURCE OF INCOME.

I know Seattle is a wonderful, magical place where it can be 62 in August! It is not full of ragweed and (exorbitant) humidity and overall it is very pleasant, what with its sidewalks.

However, in the future it may be wise to reconsider walking 1.6 miles to your asthma appointment when you've clearly been having more symptoms than usual (by stopping meds for a test they didn't even do) and you don't know where you're going.

Love,
Me

PS - I am okay! Just worn out. At least I bussed home. But got on the wrong bus and ended up near the UW campus and had to walk 15 blocks anyway.

\o/!!!

PPS - despite all of this, MUCH BETTER /o/

Okay so I've been showing this off to everyone I know. BUT BEAR WITH ME. I have my very own website! I'm very proud of it, and it has a smattering of my work.

HUZZAH!
