I’ve got my leftover Chinese food, a $3 bottle of Shiraz, two bars of chocolate, and my copy of Hey Whipple, Squeeze This. I’m doing this fucking application. If I can’t do it in two weeks, then I can’t do it at all. If it’s not good enough and I don’t get in, I’ll just apply again. Because I need to accept the fact that I want to do this, I want to be...
Cheap Chinese food three meals in a row.
If I were a superhero, my power would be the fact that I am made completely of sodium. Not a great one, but hey, when it comes to superpowers: beggars, choosers.
Dumb shit I do: start watching a TV show at 12 AM...
I am definitely not watching Homeland so I can see Damian Lewis naked. I am watching it for Claire Danes’ acting hahaha no it’s the first thing. Also, surprise Inara’s boobs.

TL;DR: Start school later than I’d like, or be the asshole who asks for three letters of recommendation two weeks before they’re due. TL;DR TL;DR: I’m an idiot. My first, and biggest (both in size and personal importance), grad school application is due in two weeks. If I want to start school in August. The other four applications are due later, and their programs start later...
Chinese food is 45 minutes late.
15 more minutes, and I’m eating the cat.
I found some broken glass out on our porch today and one of Jo’s claws had some dried blood around it. Washing and cleaning it up was, er, fun. I know that if she’s ever seriously hurt or sick, a vet bill without insurance could really screw me over. I’ve been getting quotes over the past few weeks - most of them seem to be around $15 a month - but: does anyone have a pet...

aplusnormalhuman: He wears plaid cravats. He’s renovating Pemberley to look like a New York City studio apartment. He is so over dancing. . He’s Hipster Mr. Darcy. We are dedicating the rest of our lives to Hipster Mr. Darcy.
Not great at being awake.
6:30 PM Thursday: Take a nap 5:30 AM Friday: Wake up from that nap. Say, “Huh? Oh. Whoops.” Go to work. 6:30 PM Friday: Take a nap, because learning from your mistakes is for suckers.
Songs I have written for my cat today
A pop jingle, temporarily titled, “If I Had to Describe You in Two Words, They would be ‘Kitty Kitty’,” and An astounding operatic piece called, “You are an Asshole.”
Things That Excite Me (no, not like that) (okay, a...
I work downtown (not a block that Red Line stop where everybody gets mugged) I work across the street from an art museum (not an enormous cemetery) I work in an office (not a grocery store full of screaming children) I sit at a desk (not being forced to stand for eight hours) I empty out the coffee pot when I drink the last of it (not every thirty minutes) I use office supplies (not cleaning...
I have to go back to being a productive member of...
It will be tough going from waking up 30 minutes before I have to clock in at work to waking up two hours before I have to be at work. At 8 AM. I’m really nervous. Really, really nervous. There was a lot of stuff I was going to get done during my unemployment that I didn’t do. Well, I did discover Joe-Joe’s Chocolate Vanilla Creme Cookies at Trader Joe’s. And I think...
Season 23, Episode 18, Minute 21
I have officially watched every single episode of The Simpsons, for the first time, all in a row, plus the movie, over the course of two months. I feel like I should have something momentous to say. Okay. Here it is: I’m gay for Mole Man.
Eat a bunch of chocolate and drink a lot of orange...
Your burps will taste like Jaffa Cakes. This is the greatest discovery I’ve ever made.
Non, je regrette rien. (Pas vraiment - je regrette...
Meant to: Go to the gym Do laundry Get some reading done Work on school applications Did: Took prescription painkillers and ate an entire solid chocolate bunny in under a minute Eh, close enough.
I ate too much milk and cookies. I feel all...
I went to an enormous Whole Foods last week and wow, rich people are crazy. I am on the current season of The Simpsons. I am addicted to shift dresses, Strongbow and Groupon deals. Six bucks for a can of soup, rich people? If you have that much money, why don’t you spend it all on fancy cheese and full-price items at The Gap, like I would? My cat doesn’t purr. (That...
Mint green toenail polish keeps making me think my...
I had lovely pizza and lovely beer and more lovely beer with the lovely Terry and Emily last night and it was… how do I put it? Neat. I had an amazing time. Those two are more awesome than a backpack teeming with dicks. And that is my highest compliment. I’m on season twenty-two of The Simpsons. I’m going all the way to the present season because Katie always finishes what...
Conversations with Katie
Me: Get out of bed. It's almost 6 PM. Stop being stupid.
Me: But I LIKE being stupid.
Me: Fair enough.
I have been sitting on a train at Sedgwick for 15...
Real cool, CTA. Real fucking cool.
JESUS CHRIST CHICAGO
IT IS SO FUCKING COLD
Hope the place doesn’t burn down over the weekend!– This is how my mom reacts to news that I got a job.
That job interview yesterday that I was crazy...
I got it. Data entry/mail sorting stuff for a market research firm downtown. Regular hours. Weekdays only. $10.50/hour (if you know what my last job paid, you know that is a big deal). Benefits. No customers. Working on Michigan Avenue. Oh man.
Applying for jobs
is 10% getting replies from scams (either the creepy Staffing Corporations that “saw your resume on CareerBuilder,” or the ones that reply to your well-thought-out cover letter by asking for a copy of your credit report), 88% never hearing anything back from the place you replied, 1% going to interviews/doing phone interviews and never hearing back from them, and 1% going to...
I made a suspense film. Warning: it is super intense.
If I get this job at Outback
I will of course be asking Ross for his advice on how to serve the food of his people.
No, that's cool, Instagram, feel free to take 4...
