I got a call from another job I applied for and finished the phone screening. They want me to come in for an interview later, but they haven't set up the time/date. It's not, like, a dream job or anything, but it'd be income while I look for "the dream job". Y'know, if I get it.

I have that library job interview next week, too. And the part-time library thing closes next week, too, but I don't know when they intend to set up interviews. I know that they're needing help as soon as they can get it, since they're getting ready to have a bunch of people out.

sareini: Nate Grey from the X-Men comics (Nate Grey)
[personal profile] sareini
My brother came down for a visit today and we went to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (yeah, it's a rare occasion where the UK gets a big film release early).

Non-spoiler thoughts:

What a fun film that was! I certainly thought it was as good and as funny as the first one, possibly even better in places. It filled in backgrounds for several characters (Yondu, or Blue Merle as I call him whenever I forget his name - hey, it's better than Blue Henry Lee Lucas - being the primary recipient there), as well as managing to introduce new characters and continue the arcs of established characters without leaving anyone with a thin edge of story wedge. It's also got the regular Stan Lee cameo - and it's one that really quite fits him - and a couple of others as well (Sylvester Stallone and Miley Cyrus among others). And Baby Groot is adorable.

Spoiler Thoughts. BIG spoilers. Read at your own risk )


Trailer-wise, I was personally just glad I didn't have to see yet another Fate of the Furious trailer. Instead, we got Baby Driver, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Wonder Woman. Oh, and Transformers: The Last Knight, wherein Optimus Prime appears to have gone and lost his marbles, and things explode, because Michael Bay.

So all in all, it's been a good day.

p.s.-discussion: as a son or daughter, do you feel any obligations to your parents? meaning, do you feel that you "owe" them, because, I don't know, they gave you life & raised you? this is something I've been thinking about a lot, lately. familial relationships. you saw it crop up last week. here it is again. feel free to disqus or ignore. thanks.

Day 28: A song by an artist with a voice you love

Has to be Tracy Thorn, formerly of Everything but the Girl. Thing is, I was really torn between something she recorded as part of EBTG, or a solo track or something else... and decided to go with the something else. So here is Tracy Thorn doing lead vocals on Style Council's beautiful "Paris Match".

 These owl paintings are awesome.  Look at how the brush strokes turn the paint into a sculpture medium to show the feather texture, especially around the faces.

Calendars and Bullet Journals

There are a lot of things that I am learning, that may or may not agree with other people. Which is okay. This is my life. This is my Path. These are my lessons. Though I may share them, and be open to discussion on them, or even a different lens on them. While I have a WordPress, and people on there tend to "like" my posts, there is rarely discussion, it's kinda boring. Though I do like to be "liked". I would just like to know why you liked it or didn't.

That being said, I'm having great fun keeping a bullet journal. I never really thought that I would have fun at it. I never thought it would be needed, and I looked at people like they were nuts for keeping a calendar their daily stuff. But I find that keeping a bullet journal has helped me see where I'm spending money and time. Helping me keep track of things I would like to improve on. The best part, is it doesn't need to be perfect, and I can be as creative or minimalist about it as I want.

I did research about it. Most of them said start with a normal notebook...yeah...no. I bought a couple bullet or grid format Journals, and went about it. I started simple, then moved on from there. I'm pretty comfortable with the format I'm doing now. It breaks down my hours during the day, I did one color for prescheduled things, and several for things I did during the day, I try to keep things the same color used in my Google Calendar for simplicity. It's also letting me look at and understand things that I am tracking, and thinking on ways to improve upon them.

For Money, I started with a daily thing on one page. Yeah, that didn't work, because on paydays, there's a lot of output. So I switched to a quarterly for the month. That worked much better, though I think I'm going to try it on a weekly basis, so I can have more room to track WHAT I'm spending, and when. I think if I do some meal planning, a great deal of what is coming out will go down, because I am eating at home. I've noticed that I do dishes and clean more when I am spending time at home, and cooking my meals.

It's truly amazing seeing how interconnected things are. I've even seen some journal trackers for emotions. I'm not sure I'm ready for that yet. I don't know if I'm looking to track that yet, but it might be cool to see.

Not gonna lie-- I ordered Trails of Cold Steel on Amazon-- but I did it for the Cloud Nimbus that I'll be able to get around in my FFXIV game-- seriously, I want to zoom around on a little cloud much like Rainy does in Card Captor Sakura--

But it is a Legend of Heroes game, I'll probably like it so no worries (Now just to finish 2nd game)

27/4/2017 wordcount: a minuscule 484, but that was all on editing hooversuck which I've been putting off for MONTHS, so it's all good.


To ~reward~ myself for getting a daily wordcount again I went ahead and got some historic low-price games from the Squeenix Spring Sale. Not as much as I wanted, ofc, but walking away with four games for < $12 is pretty damn good. And one of those games went to my mother, so whoop whoop.

ANYWAY since Origin isn't working right now because it requires an update and the client won't update on this current connection (waiting until my data renews on the 30th, then I can get it going again) I'm just having Steam download Gyromancer cos hey 150mb, then will let it continue with FF9. I immediately queued Murdered: Soul Suspect after getting it today and already have Dishonored and Arkham Asylum on the DQ from a few weeks ago, so it's not like I'm hurting for games to waste my internet time on downloading.


I've also had some level 5 or so randos add me out of nowhere on steam, and when I refuse the invite they try again. I checked their profiles and every single one of them has swastikas and shit in their profile comments so they can "lol meme", so I just made my profile private for a bit.

White Supremacists will get bored and go bother someone else, they always do. But god damn, I wish I knew what it was that put me on their radar so I could yank it away from them :/

 Today was Cube Guy's birthday, and he invited us out to dinner. It was delicious, we had a good conversation, we all shared pictures of ourselves as teenagers (Cube Guy was into emo / goth fashion and had bangs covering half his face, which is amazing to see considering how strait-laced he looks now). 

The temperature was predicted to be in the 80s today, and I had convinced myself this morning that I didn't need to go to the library for the afternoon, I'd tough it out even if it got hot rather than waste time going there and back. Well, it didn't get that hot, but the internet did go down at about 2:30, so off to the library I went. Work-wise I'm in that weird place where I'm meeting or exceeding my goal every day, but I'm not doing quite as much as I've done on my very most productive days so I feel like there's more I should be doing. But the truth is I'm nearly a whole day's work ahead of my-- generous-- estimate of how much I need to make this week. The truth is, things are pretty good.

If you had been following me on a certain image sharing site, you might have noticed over the past three or so years an occasional series of photographs that I was calling #filmcamerabody. This is the collected directors cut version of those posts.

[photograph]

This camera just arrived from film photography project to be one of our table cameras at event15[1]. The AiBORG looks like Darth Vader and handles like a truck. It is however on of my favorite recent acquisitions thanks to its eccentric qualities. #filmcamerabody

nine more fab film bodies )

Predictably I picked up Lena's cough. Fortunately it didn't hit me as bad. We are both feeling pretty exhausted from everything. I am glad that the week is almost over and we are getting better.

Oh look, the internet’s back. *lol*

Shaw was having some issues with their services for most of the afternoon. Internet, TV, and landline were all down.

 
Anyhooo.  Got a package in the mail today.

Which is awesome….. sort of…

The not so awesome was that I had ordered it in November ….

as a Christmas gift.

Holy crap that was some super slow shipping.
 

I guess I can give it out next Christmas. *bwahahahaha*

Alright. I need to scoot, I'll try and catch up and respond to comments soon though. TTFN <3
