Good, got the obligatory kitteh photo out of the way early. :D

It's been almost a week since we received the blessing of internet and my productivity went from pretty good to pretty abysmal. I also have a bit of a confession to make: I haven't actually applied to any jobs yet. It's been three weeks of unemployment and I know I should be feeling antsy and guilty about it, but really it's just been rolls of awesome. Intellectually I know I need to get on it, since the market is so slow and these things take time, but - well, no real buts, just me being a lazy mofo.

That ends this week, though. Every morning I will search and I will put out a resume or an application a day, because otherwise in a month or two I'll find myself not only unemployed but unencumbered by money, too. Which would suck. Thankfully since writing this paragraph, I have already gone and applied for a position at an opening Teavana store. Productivity win!

Besides applying for a job, I've been putting in a few hours a day towards writing, but not my photography. That changes today as well - I will officially launch my website by Friday. If I do not, I hereby authorize you to find me and give me a thorough beating. Which I will deserve. Thoroughly.

And since my birthday is coming up, it's time for an introspection cut. )

I was going to write about how much this week sucks and how much yesterday sucks (ended up going into work anyway), but then I checked my BOA account for my paycheck and found much more than expected. o.o So I guess it can't be all bad. Either way, I'm going to spruce up this week with a few delicious books. Any suggestions? I'm currently reading Gormenghast and am looking for further fantasy/sci-fi books. Or zombies. I'd love an excellent zombie novel.

Since I didn't get into grad school, I'm turning all of my rejection-induced rage towards finishing GOU's first edit. I rather like Cherie Priest's means of reporting progress on her stories and am also looking for a way to feel like I'm somehow obliged to keep going. You know - have a sort of goal for each day in a public place so that I can shame myself for not keeping up with the goal. Good times.

Today's goal is to finish editing chapter four by Sunday. I guess that really isn't today's goal, but, well. There are three pages left to edit/rewrite/sift through. It's more of a complete rehaul than an edit, anyway, since most everything is being rewritten. Man, that first draft was shitty. But hey, no one ever said they weren't supposed to be.

Had a horrible dream last night that reflected all of my pent up rage and depression from the day. Culminated in being forced to work until 1:30am. o.O Just like Publix times - no leaving until everything is done.

Well, time for that work thing. Wish my laptop were smaller so it'd be easier to take with me. Wish I were better at working with words on paper. Maybe I should wish for some horses too, eh?
