Um, hi, you guys. How are you doing? I hope everything is OK. I've been meaning to catch up on every body's journal, but, yeah, who knew the working life was going to be so time consuming, uh?
I don't think I've worked so much in my life. Weirdly enough, I like what I'm doing. It's not the most important stuff on the world, or particularly interesting, but I like it. I don't know if I could do it forever, but for now it's good. The work hours, though, are killing, as of right now we're working 10 hours every day plus all the work we do on our weekends. We can't even take the holidays totally off. And next week, we have another 4 day-weekend and there's a possibility we'll have to go to the office. On the plus side, I get to take off all the extra hours I've worked, so already planning what to do with my up-to-now two weeks off. I guess I'll have to start working on the grad paper sometime soon. But I still don't know what to write about. I'll guess inspiration will strike soon (I'm praying for it).
This is the first time I've been on LJ in a long time. I try to avoid using my computer at home, because if I do, I'll probably go to sleep at 2 a.m. and I have to wake up at 6:30. I can do that once, but not every day. As a result, I don't know nothing except what I'm working on. I'll try to catch up with the rest of the world eventually, but probably not till mid-April, when this assignation ends.beyondthepen
, your gift arrive on the mail a couple of days ago. It's really pretty. THANKS!
So, wanna tell me what's going on in your life, guys?
Hi, guys! How's it going? I'm trying ot get used to the working girl rhythm, but no luck yet apparently. I'm still haven't caught up on all your post (hopefully I'll be able to comment by the weekend), 'cause you sure miss me, right? *crickets* Oh, well...
Gotta do the last challenge for lost_land
:( I should unpack sometime soon, though, as all my clothes are still in my bag and I got here TWO WEEKS ago. Everything will be done eventually.
See you around (hopefully)!
I've been in a great mood for almost three weeks. But now it's over.( Rant-y rantCollapse )
Anyways, let's get on with that meme, shall we?DAY 1:
Your current relationship, if single discuss single life
DAY 2: Where you'd like to be in 10 years.
I have no freaking idea. I don't know where I'd like to be in 6 months, least of all in 10 years.
I always say I'd like to be working in Canada, but that's mostly because I'd like to live there. I'm way too practical/realistic (to some, just pessimistic) to think I'll find a person I'd like to live with. And I don't have the courage to have kids on my own, so if I'm not in a stable relationship, there's no chance that's happening. I'd love to be healthy, with all the people I love (who are mostly my parents, and sometimes, my brother) doing something that makes me happy, or that gives me the means to be happy. It does sound a bit cliché and sappy, but hey I'm not known for my creativity and depth.
I'm trying to work up the nerve to put up a scrapbook, but I don't do anything particularly interesting, I don't need to keep a list of all the TV I watch (as it isn't cutting down my study time anymore) and the books I read are mainly chick-lit apparently.
I'm dreading having to work. Like actual work. Right now, I'm doing a refreshing/introductory course, as mostly all the group is made up by summer interns, who may or may not know the basics of auditing as they are young. 20 years old, it seems. I did get to know new people, so that's nice (In my head, that phrase is always said as Shirley does in Community. I miss that show, and it's only been three and a half weeks). Unfortunately I still haven't been assigned to any audits and they have so I'll have to do the whole getting-to-know-the-rest-of-the-group thing again. I think I'm more anxious about it than about the actual job. I suck at that (meeting new people, that it). Guess it a trial and error kind of thing. I just wish I had learned how to do it while I was growing up.
I'm going to start one of those 30 day meme. It will take longer as I won't probably update every day. I took this one from peachlips
so thanks are in order: Thanks!DAY 1:
Your current relationship, if single discuss single life
I'm pretty comfortable with being single. After all it's been a life long state for me. I don't particularly care about going to the cinema on my own, or eating out without someone else. I've never had a true and lasting desire to have a boyfriend. The thought has crossed my mind a couple of time, but normally after 5 minutes I'm onto something else. There are some phrases that kind of rule my life. One of that is "Better off alone, than in bad company" (It's my own translation of a saying I know in Spanish, but have no idea if it exists in English). So, seriously, why are you gonna have to stand people you don't want to be around with, just to not be alone. What's wrong about being on your own? This is a bit of a touchy subject for me, as I've been watched as a freak for never having a boyfriend.
- Get caught up on my f-list's posts ('cause I'm
stalkerish curious like that)
- Have an actual meal, apart from breakfast (which is the only thing I've been eating for the past three days)
- Sleep for more than 5 hours per night
- Buy a pair (or two) of black pants
- Get caught up on Sherlock
- Get some healthy recipes to make "to-go" lunch
Oh, I also need to get a life, but I've been trying to get on for the past 24 years, and still nothing, so...
As I'm not going to be around for a while I want to wish all of you a Merry Christmas (if you celebrate it) and I hope you star the next year the best way possible! I'm really truly glad to have met all you.
As a result of apparently really bad political choices (one of the few things I refuse to rant here, funnily enough), my hometown has been experiencing a series of unannounced blackouts. As a result Internet access at my house has been limited to business access only and there's no internet cafe, so I'm not going to be online at least till I get back to the Big City. On the good side, I will be able to finish all hte books I've brought.
On an unrelated note, I'm watching Elizabeth Mitchell on House. My mind can't handle this. YES! I'm totally thinking a what-if scenario where Juliet knew Chase. They would have looked so awesome together.
Take care and see you later
This mix was made based on sound and not lyrics, so I don't think they are necessary.
You can click HERE
if you don't want to download the whole thing. I will upload the .zip version if someone wants all the songs. It's just that my internet connection isn't good right now.
I feel as if I'm in the army or something. I'm back in my little ol' town for the holidays and then back to the Big City to star my job (YAY!). In the mean time, I have no cold water and almost no Internet. My house shares the internet connection with the Office and it's been the rush hour apparently for the last three days (even during the weekend). They have to submit a lot of things over the Internet, so I'm hoping I can use it tonight.
Luckily there are no new shows these weeks, except for Misfits and I miss it! Or Leverage, that I also miss (and I think the finale was this weekend, but I'm not sure.
And now, I have to go back to work on my dad's office, which I guess is more stressing than my new job.
On the good side, my family is not getting together for Christmas or New Year. So, at least, there are not gonna be awkward silences this year.
The bad thing of Fastpass: Real quick uploads, so I'm gonna be watching almost all my Thursday shows tonight.
( Little bastard gets under your skin, doesn't he?Collapse )( I'm here for the cookiesCollapse )( Insert witty line hereCollapse )( You were gonna save meCollapse )
( Little bastard gets under your skin, doesn't he?Collapse )
I just so a promo for The Cape featuring Orwell, and I love her already. Unfortunately, I have a feeling it's not gonna last long. Hopefully, I'm wrong.
Ok, so Fringe and Bones
later today. I should catch up with Bones, 'cause I think I only watched the first two eps, and then I completely forget about it. But there's so much excitement about this one, that I'll check it out. Or at least after I read other people's thoughts on it. I may seriously delay watching Fringe. I don't think I'll be able to see Olivia's heart break one more time. I'm dreading seeing her realize that no one knew she wasn't there.
Can you tell I'm bored (and boring) and don't want to study?( TransatlanticismCollapse )
When you see this on your friends list, make a post, with a music video (or song, whatever works) that used to be your go to jam back in the day. The terms are relative and it's up to you, but keep spreading it around or you'll end up with wrinkles on your memories.
I LOVED this song back in 1999. I was 13 after all, so it shouldn't be held against me.( ABC MemeCollapse )
