    I finally finished finals after an all nighter last night(most of my final exams were actually HUGE take home projects done in groups of two).  I spent from 2:00 PM yesterday to 5ish AM this morning working on model and corresponding database for Accounting Information Systems, only to have Microsoft Access arbitrarly undo all of my work.  Still managed to rebuild it before it was due at 10 am.  Then I went to work, and now I need to go to bed before I start seeing things.

    Tickets booked for my flights and hotel for EVE Fanfest next year, a week in Iceland \o/

    The divine voice of Avechna, the Avenger reverberates powerfully, "Congratulations, Morkarion, you are the Bringer of Death indeed."

    RWR: I have fixed the horrible lag I've been having. Was due to improperly shielded wires.

    Randomly woke up these past few days in a 'stop being lazy and improve your quality of life' sort of mood. Acquired a fantastic exercise machine from my mother (been using it, too!), finally got around to recoloring my hair so I don't have to wear a hat 24/7, all in all I'm feeling relatively decent for a change :)

    Someone who found my resume online actually thinks I'm a fit for a position they have... here's to hoping that they're legit when I call in the morning...

    Hooray, I'm freeee, free at laaaast.

    Hopefully I passed all these classes.

    After searching entirely too long I got something. Then after accepting got several offers to things I've applied for half a year ago. It's like uhh thanks would have been nice to have heard something a little sooner when it might have been relevant. Anyways. Good luck!

    Okay, so the offer is legit and I've a meeting with the guy [who is indeed a headhunter] on Tuesday. Though now I have a weekend to relearn [or at least re-familiarize with] Android -and- acquaint myself with Jython for his client, which I'm leaving as a tentative rave because yay technically using my degree >.=.<

    THE HOBBIT
    Everiine is a man, and is very manly. This MAN before you is so manly you might as well just gender bend right now, cause he's the manliest man that you ever did see. His manly shape has spurned many women and girlyer men to boughs of fainting. He stands before you in a manly manerific typical man-like outfit which is covered in his manly motto: "I am a man!"

    I KNOW. At least the third one comes out six months after the second, not a whole other year.

    I wish you all the luck, so far I've had the best luck [with acquiring interviews] selling one particular aspect of knowledge [i.e. in my case Python]. So pick something and then aggressively throw your resume at everything even remotely connected to that one thing. ^.=.^;

    Something many companies won't tell you is the way applying for jobs online works.  They have word matching they use against your resume. Unless you match 90%+ of the key words they put in, there's a good chance they won't ever look at your resume. So it's a good idea to read through their requirements and try to custom tailor your resume with as many key words based on what they're looking for.

    I personally found applying online to be less than helpful, and at times just depressing. Going to career fairs or trying to find stuff through contacts and contacts of friends/anybody you know is far better as it guarantees more consideration than a machine rejecting you before a person even sees it.

    Edit: But still send it out online to everybody you can possibly think of ;)

    Every time I put a suit on, I'm surprised by how good it looks.

    Clearly I need a job where I wear suits.

    Who says? You just need to make the suit part of your style. You could go full Ska. Everyone looks good in a fedora and crisp sneakers.

    This semester I unwittingly followed malicious advice from a business department advisor and took 2 of the most difficult and rigorous courses offered in the Accounting program(not knowing that they were) simultaneously.  Found out today I passed both of them with an A- and a B.  I definitely deserve it after 4 months of absolute hell.

    Sufjan Stevens has a second Christmas album. :x

    I am not a Christmas music enthusiast by any means, but this guy's take on it is just perfect. Sometimes beautiful, sometimes experimental, sometimes not even good, sometimes quirky and campy, always unique.

    Just seen Dredd for the first time since I saw it at the Cinema last...July?

    Movie's still utterly amazing and it's a damn shame hardly anyone saw it.

    I'd watch it, but I'm too scared it will traumatize me...

    It's just well shot violent action, mixed with some awesome slow motion effects.

    Watching the Stallone version of Dredd will traumatise though, not because it's violent, but because it's just awful.

    YES. So sweet and beautiful, but so sad. Probably my favorite on the album.
