- A hug to the person who left the lovely snowflake on my profile (and signed it <3 Bradley James, cheers for that). It was sweet, thanks so much :)

- Despite not exactly being the biggest Twilight fan, I've come to discover that I'm totally a Jacob/Leah shipper. Late to the party much? So yeah, I already pretty much ignore everything that happened in Breaking Dawn, but especially so now. Speaking of Jacob, is Taylor Lautner still just 17? Because that's not right or fair. He's unjustly making me feel like a dirty old woman.

- After watching this week's Never Mind the Buzzcocks I've developed a slight crush on Dermot O'Leary, which is troublesome considering I barely know who he is. He hosts X Factor, yes?

- Finally started reading Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, I picked up the ultimate edition the other day, five books in one, so I've got a lot of reading to do. Am loving it so far. Douglas Adams had that quirky, funny style that I love so much.

- On the life front, I have yet another interview scheduled for Wednesday. I'm just so tired of getting all stressed out over these interviews and then still having nothing coming from them. So...yeah. Plus with the holidays and my birthday coming up, I'm just feeling kind of old and bleh.

Hopefully my flist is having a better time of it lately than me :)

Honestly, not to be a drama queen, but right now I'm trying not to cry out of sheer anger and frustration.

My best friend, who lost her job in July, just got hired at Citibank doing wills and debt consolidation. Never mind that it is a position she is wholly unqualified for, as her only previous job experience has been a hostess at Marie Calendars, I actually am quite happy for her. She is in real need of the income.

But at the same time, I sit here having just filled out my third application in the past three days, jobless and without even a hint of an interview on the horizon. And she got the job without really putting any effort out. She filed for unemployment and Citibank found her resume (as shoddy as it is) through there and hired her. I can't go through unemployment. You know why? Because I was a full time student earning my degree, so I wasn't working. 

You know what she's been doing the past few years? Dropping out of college every couple semesters (she gets bored and stops going to class, she's on academic probation right now) and working like ten hours a week at a restaurant and bitching about it the whole time.  

I just...she does nothing and gets a job I can guarantee she has no clue how to do. I apply practically daily for jobs I could do in my sleep and hear nothing, for almost a year straight now. 

I really am resisting the urge to curl into a ball and wallow in depression for the foreseeable future.
