Iron Man 3 B+ I had a great time watching it even though it seemed like there were inconsistencies everywhere. RDJ is amazing as always and it was just a fun good time. I can rarely say anything really bad about super hero movies because I always have a good time watching them. If you want to watch something exciting and fun and children friendly, this is the one to go to! Even though there are a ton of people complaining on IMDB about this or that. But those people are always complaining.
The Great Gatsby C+ It was..alright, not as fantastic as I expected it to be. Compared to the Daisy in my head I felt like Carey Mulligan was mis-cast. I like her a LOT and she rocks short hair like no one else and she looked beautiful in the film but she lacks something for it. I liked the movie and the cinematic of it all but it felt lacking for me. It was a fun movie to watch but it would be equally good on the big TV at home.
BIG NEWS BIG NEWS
I got wait-listed! *balloons immediately deflate*
I got the news yesterday morning via email. I was half asleep when I was reading it and it was barely 7 AM. I’ve never been wait-listed for anything in my life! That’s not to say that I am excellent in all areas and pass with flying colors rather it’s more like I’ve never been wait-listed because I usually just get rejected.
The plot thickens.
Compared to last year, this is a stunning improvement over the flat out rejection from Columbia J-school. In hindsight I am extremely glad that I didn’t get in. It was a money-hemorrhaging program in a money-hemorrhaging school in a money-hemorrhaging city. As much as I love New York City, it’s just too expensive to live in… especially evident due to this tumblr cataloging the worst rooms for rent for unbelievable amounts of money.
I’m living too comfortably lately and the idea that I am doing something new or going somewhere new is exciting and encouraging but oh so scary. But because I’ve been wait-listed, I feel more calm, like there’s a intermission between flat out rejection and acceptance and the busy-ness that’s sure to follow.
Because I’ve been wait-listed it made me realize more that I do definitely want to go. Working in my office feels like I’m rotting a little bit, a few cells at a time and I’m slowly being chipped away while melting like a giant ice sculpture. It’s really funny because my supervisor keeps asking me what I want to do in the future, I’m sure she’d like me to stay forever and ever. But too bad, I have DREAMSSSSS and HOPESSSSS and a limit for working with abusive people
anyways, that’s exciting~ isn’t it?
i got these as a gift and man they are too cute~~
now if only there was something worthy to stick these on to……
i’m at work
i’m always blogging at work so I don’t waste my precious off-time.
Or rather i’d want to be paid for doing all the internet things i am doing anyway
I started to write a new book! HAND WRITTEN MANUSCRIPT! I have never felt so good or confident about writing for a while now. Writing long hand can be tremendously boisterous towards one’s self esteem. If you type, you tend to read back more often and delete more often. But when you write by hand, it’s literally a laborious process, hence you’re easier on yourself and you tend to keep more. That’s all I’m going to say about it for now. If I talk too much about it, I’ll hype myself up in my own head, and it’ll be a bad thing.
I haven’t been job hunting even though I scroll through my RSS feed and daily emailed job listings every day. I can’t seem to bring myself to apply for anything even though I desperately
want need to.
At work lately I’ve been having a meeting every friday, almost. All I do is talk about BS and what I’m unsatisfied with. I don’t like these meetings mind you, but I suggest it to my supervisor because if I don’t I’ll get stepped on the next week. The best defense is offense right?
I also find it pretty ridiculous that I have to talk for 45 minutes just to see if I can get a “normal” lunch time (i.e. not at 2 or 3 PM )
Every little thing I have to fight for, reasonable lunch hours, full time hours. Even during my last meeting my supervisor told me that I have to get ready for winter, as in, we’re going to significantly cut your hours because too freaking bad. Nepotism is too obviously visible where I work.
But since I’ve let go of the entire situation, as in, IDGA F what you think, I’m going to eat on time, I’m going to do things for myself and not for anyone else.
I’ve felt a loooottt better.
But it’s still a horrible place to work.
TO THE JOB SEARCH MOBILE!
i have a black leather jacket (read: genuine leather) from zara that i got a few years ago. It’s still serving me well but the elbows are worn out (not in a good way) and missing quite a few pull tabs because they simply broke. I definitely don’t NEED new leather I’m older now and I need to upgrade.
Here are some that i’m eternally lusting after
by Acne. I think they made so many different leather jackets and i want them all. There’s one with this ridiculous shearling collar and i’m like no but im sure it’s removable.
this balenciaga perfecto that alexa wears around town. I’ve pretty much never seen another photo of this jacket that’s not on her. Weird huh? but rep that pebbled leather!!! I personally hate the belt that comes with the jackets but this one seems rigid enough that it’ll work
LAST BUT NOT LEAST!
SCHOTT NYC’s LAMBSKIN PERFECTO FOR LADIES! this is my next jacket. reasonably priced with punk legacy, what could be better … take me there now….
