Job prospects

So far, I have 3 days of interviews scheduled--tomorrow, Friday, and Saturday, each at 2 pm. And I had a group interview yesterday and the job fair Monday. And the group interview called me back.

The group interview and the interview tomorrow are both for insurance, which I'm not thrilled about, and I agreed to them before the other two contacted me.

Friday's interview is for a Case Manager position that I'm really interested in and crossing my fingers on. Got that hit from the job fair.

Saturday is a seasonal position at Macy's, which would at least help in the short-term if nothing else.

My uncle also emailed me a part-time Case Manager position where he volunteers, so even then, it would be something. No interview yet; I only contacted them to find out more information.

Overall, it's exciting, but I'm also confused and very tired from not sleeping at all last night.

Gaia 20

I think I found a new favorite episode, at least in Ultraman Gaia.

In which Gamu's interactions with Kajio are so homoerotic that Kajio has to point out "I'm not gay, you know," and Gamu's attempts to defend himself lead the rest of Team Lightning to look at him from behind like, "Dude, we know you're the LEAST straight person on this base, it's okay."

Also in which Hiroya Fujimiya, whose new official name is "Bitchy Tezuka," kidnaps Gamu and ties him to his exercise equipment in what I swear is his sex dungeon.

And where Gamu asks him if there is ANYONE in the world he cares about and wouldn't want to sacrifice, Bitchy Tezuka literally thinks of his pet hamster TWICE before deciding on his budding love interest.

And I start quoting Juggler's "But the need to protect the weak is Gai's weakness!" when Bitchy Tezuka does something not awful.

And in which the monster makes adorable squeaking noises.

All in all, I consider this a perfect episode.

Things That Are Wrong With Eiji

Wei asked me to help put this together a while ago. Hopefully it's complete?

And yet, he's not the most messed up character I've seen )

There's another one, where he's a bad liar and cannot understand he's a bad liar, but given his track record, I'm not sure if it's actually a bad thing. It helps him a lot when people see through his lies.

Job stuff

Dear self,

You just came out of a hurricane. You only moved back into your house two days ago. You can't even remember the days of the week. Don't get hard on yourself if you can't focus on job applications today.

Monday, there's going to be a job fair. Focus your energy there. You can handle that much, and you'll be able to ask a lot of important questions. Start making a list, and make sure you bring something to write with and on. Maybe Dad has a professional-looking portfolio for you. Or you can run to Office Depot or even Target or Walmart to find one, now that the roads are a little safer.

Don't start crying because you don't have the education or experience they want. Talk to the professionals and see what they say first, before you try to put another $80 each into grad school applications when you know you don't have reliable sources for recommendation letters.

It'll be okay.

We just evacuated to my uncle's house. If I can continue to update, I will. Storm is forecast to go just west of us, meaning we'll get the strongest winds.

We will be going to my uncle's tomorrow.

My little sister is determined to throw all of us into a full-fledged panic attack.

And this morning, while failing to sleep, I found myself plotting out an Orb/OOO crossover.

Of course this means I have to look up all of the monsters so I can find one other than Galactron that can cross dimensions.

Still here, playing it by ear. If things look bad, we're heading to my uncle's place a little further inland. I kind of want to hit my dad because we've gotten calls saying we need to go and he's...astoundingly laid back about this. It's not helping my mounting anxiety at all.

We may be evacuating. I'll keep everyone informed.

I feel like silly OOO stuff is always the appropriate Ultraman icon

Listening to the Geed soundtrack. I love that Leito gets his own battle theme coupled with Zero's, because it's sweet that our clumsy dork dad gets to be a superhero or at least shares a body with a superhero who decided "We're married now and I've adopted your kid, so anyone who messes with her has to deal with ME." But his normal theme sounds like "trying really hard not to look suspicious and failing really bad."

Riku's themes, on the other hand, sound like they had a few musical cues left over from Juggler and thought, "Hey, he's the son of Ultraman Belial--I'm SURE he could use all of this dark stuff!" and failed to take into account that he's a big ol' dork who sits around and watches his VHS tapes of toku all day and eats instant ramen and bumps his head on the ceiling because he literally just FORGETS he can leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Ultra themes

Going through the Orb Origin Saga soundtrack and translating the titles through Google. Discovered one track is "Agul Kourin"--"Agul's Advent."

You fucking did this on purpose.

I'm back home. I hesitate to say that I'm alive, if only because I'm really fatigued.

Don't know what's going to be coming in the next few days, since Hurricane Irma may be hitting us. We may have to pick up my youngest sister again. If things look really bad, we may all be hitting the road, so...we'll see.

Travel note to self

When going to a hotel with my family, I need to remember to bring my own pillow and blankets. That way if we need an inflatable, I'm already ready, my youngest sister can take as many of the hotel blankets as she wants, my mom will actually sleep in the bed, and maybe more than just my middle sister will sleep.

I predict multiple stops for coffee and tea on the way home.

In writing. And inventing words, possibly.

According to my Google results, "pieceable" is probably not a word.

I'm going to use it anyway. It's poetic.

Got back home last night. I probably should have anticipated that I wouldn't get much accomplished computer- and job-wise during my trip...but I was optimistic.

Re: Kyuuranger's Kotaro

So...is Toei determined to just do every horrible thing possible to make Shota Taguchi cry? Because he's a really good young actor and this is twice now he's had to kill his mother. Albeit, less bloody this time around.

I do hope he gets a bigger role in something down the line--Kamen Rider again, maybe jump companies over to Ultraman, something like that. He's one of the best actors in Kyuuranger, and I really hope he goes places.
