Been too long.

Been too long since I updated. Here's where I'm at.
  • Room mates acquired. Nice living arrangement worked out.
  • School still sucks. Not done with it yet, and may have another couple quarters to go. 
  • Job obtained, but not paying. Which sucks. Not on workstudy, so no pay. Blows.
  • Still poor. Financial aid happened, which is good, but doesn't make me feel any better about my life.
  • I hate programming, which is weird because I did OK (C grades last quarter in my programming classes) and an 83% or better mid-way through this quarter [Jquery & PHP).
  • Job needs to happen that I get paid for, so I can do something exciting. This icon hasn't changed in a while for precisely that reason. The last time USArchive was hiring, nobody got back to me and it was such short notice that I didn't even see it until post-interview time. Sucks balls.
  • Cons: I don't go to any. Well, maybe NorWes, Conflikt, and Rainfurrest. That's it. 2-3 a year on average since moving to WA. I can't afford to because I don't have a job. 
  • Crafts: Haven't in a while. Still have that shirt that I've been working on, but it's in the garage somewhere and need to find it so I can finish it.
  • Updates: If you want  a more detailed one than what you find here, call me or send an email. I don't update as much as I used to, not from lack of trying. These days mostly because I'm too wiped when I get home to do so.

Sorry I haven't said anything in a while.

 Once again, my life is not very interesting. I mean, getting paid $400 for a chain shirt project is interesting, but that'll be part of my tuition payment.  I need to figure out where I'll be living at the end of April, because that's when my lease runs out. I am liking the not having room mates thing, but I will revert back to that option if I have to. I still don't have a job, and I try to stay optimistic about getting one but everywhere I've looked has either already filled the positions, has some corporate BS via a website, requires a car and a drivers license, or just doesn't have the means to make that happen. I'm sort of hoping the parents manage to give me more information about this house-share they're planning with some other friends of theirs, and am fairly sure I'll be able to move there when that becomes an option (in the distant future, I've come to understand.)

I was invited to Orycon, but because of any details not being worked out last weekend, I didn't even find out that I was invited until I missed a phone call from my mom. Therefore, didn't go. I'll be seeing Wreck-it-Ralph tomorrow with s/o, then will be spending most of my afternoon either on craigslist looking for work, or on TOR goofing off because my brain will be sufficiently melted when I get done looking for shit to do on CL. *sigh* I hate my world right now. I mean, realistically...catching up on [personal profile] mdlbear 's blog has been great and everything, but seeing his success with $D makes me feel.....inadequate. Like I have to go to him and scrape for cash that I don't have with my paws held out like a beggar. Because that's what I am...or at least it feels that way. 

Life sucks. I accept that. But damn you, Murphy! Apply your law to someone who deserves it!

I'm sorry I haven't updated almost all summer. I've been working my job search, and it's been fruitless. I've been cultivating my relationship with Rabbitson, and trying to make my life somewhat easier to deal with.

I've registered for school, taking only the one class this upcoming quarter. Management 101. Point of this is that being an online class, I'll still be able to focus on my job search.

Courtesy of the YS, I've been watching NetFlix. It's been something to watch.

If anyone wants to hang out and you have my number, feel free to give me a buzz and we'll reschedule.

So. Update.

Living on my own is liberating, but kind of intimidating at the same time. [personal profile] mdlbear , Mom, and YS are moving up here. Not too happy about the last, but am going to get used to the idea that Starport is no longer a place I can return to and call it mine. It's going to be staying within the family, but not my family. Not sure that makes any sense.

I'm doing OK. I'm doing my own thing, but I haven't gotten around to making time to clean yet. That is my one weakness. I am working on it, and am going to try cleaning it up during my off-time. I'm also going to be looking for work. Fun times. 

Today's school day was all kinds of fucked up. It was horrible. My group wasn't prepared, but I'd heard that I was the best presenter of our group. I can't get over how horrible it was, especially since a retired member of Proctor and Gamble was there to judge us. Contest. Right. Yeah. We did badly, I think.

LARP this last weekend was awesome.

HW help: Project Manager Interview
survival
chaoswolf
 Hey, folks. Sorry I've not posted in a while. Here's an update. 

Moved in, got settled, have a guest bed now set up (small one), got things all over the place, looking into what I don't have and what I do. Relationship aftermath hasn't begun yet for some reason not in my hands, and I'm completely not sure what to do about the other half of this equation at this point in time. *sigh* Advice welcome.

Need to get in touch with/interview a project manager (or someone who has managed a project in) the business field. This is needed for an interview, and I would be appreciative of any help I can get on the subject. All interest can be sent to my email: kdsavitzky at gmail dot com. The idea is I need to choose someone I do not know very well/am not related to. Plenty of you I know through conventions and I know you have contact in the business world, so that won't be an issue. Dad, I can't use you for this because we're related.

 I have a shiny! 

Turned in last of the paperwork. They said they don't need anything further, told me to get in touch w/ them the 27th. I told them I have a day all picked out, gave them the time block I had allocated in my day (1200 - 1600) to which got "You have a time this far in advance? OK...erm...When do you want?" 
"1500 (3pm)."
"OK. Done."

Squee! Stay tuned for further postings within the week about detailed move plans.  [personal profile] mdlbear  : Thank you!

Hrm. Lookin' for used MotoAndroid type phone.

 See subject. Can't pay top dollar, but mine's developing a busted charge pin and I haven't got around to taking it in for repairs with finals and move prep.

Move: Pending.

So, here's the word. I just got approved for a place out in Lynnwood. It's closer to school, within biking distance (4.7 miles, 38 min) or bus distance (4.1 miles, probably 15 min). 6802 feet for 1 bed 1 bath. I'm refraining from posting the address at this time because of paper snafus that still need dealing with.

I am, however going to make a PSA: Anyone who is willing to help unload the contents of the U-haul on the estimated move date of 3/30 (watch this space for confirmation of date and time) will be offered pizza for their services, thus having an impromptu house-warming party along the theme of potluck/BYOB.

It will give me an extra 4 hours in my day to either do homework, have a social life, sleep, or cook. All of which I could use.

For now, leave comments containing the following.

a) Whether or not you wish me to notify you via following for addy change (choose 1)
  • text
  • social networky thing (bookFace, G+, etc)
  • email
  • snail mail 
b) Interested in the move helping process
  • start
  • finish
c) None of the above, but Mazeltov!

I'm sorry if it seems like I'm blowing people off. I'm under a ton and a half of stress right now, and any plans made at the moment are random and spontaneous. You want my attention, my cell still works and I'm more likely to answer it. I will not make any promises to be anywhere at any time. I'm tired, I'm under stress, and if y'all don't like it you can take a walk somewhere else.

Please understand I'm not trying to hate anyone in particular; I'm just making plans as they come up and haven't gotten back to people because I can't remember (due to the stress) who I said I'd get back to.

I can only say "I'm sorry" so many times before even I get tired of hearing it.
