No more Countdown :(

The world bursts at the seams with people ready to tell you you’re not good enough. On occasion, some may be correct. But do not do their work for them. Seek any job; ask anyone out; pursue any goal. Don’t take it personally when they say “no” — they may not be smart enough to say “yes”. - Keith Olbermann

I'm already marked for Assassination.

Somebody forgot to logout of her gmail account before she left our apartment. You know who I am.

Love love.

Le sigh

I hate not having real internet on a regular basis or a computer that only lasts maybe an hour when it actually does charge. I can't even regular check up on the blogs I read.

I want/need to get back to blogging. I miss it so.

Beautiful Ar Direction by creative director and makeup artist Adriana Gerasimova


Let me take a moment to say: "Yay! 100th post!"

Anyway, so its so amusing to see how idiotic people can be. I'm a very eclectic person, not matter if its movies, music, books, or even people. While I've been known to go through phases where I'll stick to one genre, I'm pretty much into everything. So it annoys me when someone tries to label me without seeing the whole picture.

The Boss is trying to revamp the office and one of the things is having music playing in the lobby area. Now I'm not a big fan of that because the music could be very distracting. But, hey, I only work here. And for two more weeks at that. So I decided if they're going to be music playing, that it might as well be something I enjoy, while also appropriate for work. Last night I decided to put on Depeche Mode. Its music that fit the mood for it being late and nothing really going on, yet still had a good beat going. So one of the assistants after a while calls me emo because I listen to Depeche Mode. Really? You've decided to categorize and label me as one specific genre based on one band that I decided to play. Completely ignoring that I played Wolf Parade, Radiohead, and Taking Back Sunday earlier. Also ignoring that Depeche Mod is really more of a gothic/early industrial band than "emo". He tried to call them a forerunner of Emo when that title should more so go to The Cure if you're going to try and look at how the genre came to be what it is.

I find him to be very childish and its easy to ignore him, but I find it annoying that people label based on very little information. Its ridiculous. And I'm not saying that that I don't do it myself. Though I do try to get all the facts when I can. I hate when people judge me because of random shit and not knowing the whole picture and I try to not do that to others. But people like this guy just get to me with their three-year-old mentality of everything is black and white and there couldn't possible be any other way. Le sigh.

Catching up

Well, I haven't really put anything about my life up in the past couple of days as I have:
  1. Not had the mental energy
  2. I feel awkward writing about certain things at work because I always feel like someone is looking over my shoulder.
So, I want to play a little catch up to let everyone in the know and hopefully I'll go into more detail in upcoming posts.

  • I've been annoyed that my Boss had said back in October/November that as part of "teaching"part of our internship he would have us meet with a couple of people in the business. After that we never heard about it again. Not even a whisper. So I finally got the balls (especially after to talking to Lauren from Hipstercrite) to talk to one of the other manager about meeting some of his clients. So far I've meet two of the three that I talked about and playing email tag with the other as he is very busy. I feel so satisfied that I finally did something for myself instead of trying to wait for the Boss for fulfill empty promises. And while of the topic of work...
  • Two mangers that I really liked (thankfully not the one that helped me to get meetings) got fired last week. The first Monday night after everyone left work the other of Friday. I loved them both. They were great people and great managers. I'm so thankful that I'm only here for another 2 weeks or it would be truly weird having to work without either of them here. The office feels so empty both in physical sense and of good energy. I most favorite I hope to keep in contact with. Especially since he would give me a good word depending on were I'll be working once I graduate or maybe make to move out to LA and work for him or for wherever he works next.
  • And the last point on work. So last week I got my final paycheck for work. The amount was more that I thought it was suppose to be but I wasn't going to say anything. But unfortunately I got call yesterday from the accountant saying that I had to write them back a check for the amount that I wasn't suppose to receive . Dammit! I wish there was a way for me to get out of having to give the money back. I have been so broke with the little that I'm being paid vs living costs. So much I wanted to do while I was out here on this coast and I couldn't because I barely had money to feed myself after paying rent, let alone wanting to do something fun. Plus the fact that I was doing 50 hr work weeks meant that I couldn't really have a part time job. I really want to see how long I can put it off. C'est la vie.
  • And the most amazing thing that has happened, I've saved for last. So I ran out of cigarettes about 11 days ago and have somehow haven't had a cigarette since. I don't think I've ever gone that long without one. Even when I was trying to quit (or atleast tried to smoke less). I wont declare this my "I've stopped smoking!". Especially since I'm patiently waiting for Big's friend to give me a case of Djarum Blacks. Big was so sweet to think of me to get his friend to do that. Maybe if I can learn to pace myself I can got back to smoking Blacks and every couple of months either have some get me Blacks or go and get them myself. Nice excuse for a road trip.
