I'm finding myself unable to muster up the energy to apply for anymore jobs because I just don't have much to look forward to right now.

Not going to Otakon, don't hang out with people (and feel too guilty about not applying to jobs to call anyone up to hang out), and whenever I try to use my adderall, I fucking dehydrate.

Edit: It's not that I'm depressed. It's just that I'm so fucking bored that I can't move or think or do anything. No stimulation. :| I'm having an ADHD attack, practically, because of it.

Edit 2: And now I've been told that I have a Vitamin D deficiency (it's at 24, when the lowest healthy score is at 30, but it should be more around 50-70 or something?) Even though I take a supplement that has 100% and drink milk. But I no longer have a gall bladder, and I've been having problems absorbing food for a while now? Hmm... and according to this, a lot of my symptoms are also caused by Vitamin B deficiency.

:| Maybe I'm just deficient in vitamins in general. i'll have to get some supplements and see if it helps... Ugh.

Oh God.

... So far, not a single job I can apply for. Great.

How am I supposed to have two years of experience of no one will hire college grads...?

Edit: Okay, finding some companies now. :| Thank goodness.

Turns out that I can still get my Computer Science minor. I got a D- in that one class I thought I was going to fail due to illness.

.... now if only I could the help my group needs in order to get our Wiki project finished in time! First we had to get a new hosting service, as our old host died, but then we couldn't because we weren't a student organization due to legal concerns because our college is copyrighted, then I had to get all the signatures to make us one again, then we had to sign up for hosting @ our university, then we found out that they only update the DNS server on Tuesdays/Thursdays, so we had to wait until Tuesday afternoon to start stuff... and now our wiki won't work because they haven't set the permissions so that it'll work. They claim we didn't tell them about the wiki, when we DID. They simply forgot, or the person we spoke with simply forgot to tell the right people.

So now our term project wiki is due tomorrow and we still can't upload the last of the files. FUCK.

:| And if we don't get it working? I probably don't graduate. Fuck.

But yes, this is why I've been absent. I've been dealing with all this shit, including getting our old files off the list serv. My professor and I have been doing all this work last minute to try to get this working, and I'm not getting much support from my group regarding it.

Oh. And the design team this is for, which I'm on, hasn't given us ANY MORE of their files for this year. Even though the team leader requested those files sometime last week. We're a multi-year project. Are they seriously trying to fuck the next team over as much as we were?

ARGH WHY ARE THEY MAKING THIS SO DIFFICULT.

Edit: Okay, they've made the changes to the folders so that we can add users to permissions for writing. ........ Now I'm just trying to figure out how to get the wiki working from that. Hope that my group members will actually respond.....

News Corp. thinks that people will pay for their website content.

They're so naive about how the internet works that I'm trying not to die laughing. So much for News Corp., I think. People will pay for a physical copy or for convenience such as the iPhone App. However, asking a person to log in is not convenient and goes against many people's desires to remain anonymous on the internet. People will just use bugmenot or read other sources of news. Especially the younger college crowd that typically has little money to spare on newspaper subscriptions.

They might survive, if it isn't too expensive. Otherwise... nope.

... okay, back to dying from graduation/exams stuff.

Note to Magus the Betta Fish: flaring at me first thing every morning when I get up will not change the fact that you sleep next to me all night every night.

Really, now.

Oh dear....

Introducing the Boston Terrier Sausage, (very appropriately) named Luna! Despite the situation, she's still more concerned about what the "lead dog" will think about what's she's done, avoiding his eyes. They're such loyal little guys. =)

DON'T FORGET, it's Free Cone Day at Ben and Jerry's! Make sure that your store is participating here.

:< Mine isn't. Probably had to do something with having 20,000+ students show up one time or something....

Declaring a hiatus from LJ for the next month. I gotta work on finishing my one incomplete from the previous semester that now have A) time to work on it and B) am actually healthy enough to get a lot of work done.

So I won't be able to read up on my flist for the next month or so. Just FYI.

LOVE YOU ALL. ♥

In response to this, especially the last paragraph:

If your main/only reason for voting against same-sex marriage is religious beliefs--specifically that marriage is between a man and a woman--you are, in fact, violating the first Amendment to the Constitution:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Religion should have nothing to do with a Civil marriage. If you don't want a same-sex couple marrying in your church, fine. Couples can take their money elsewhere.

A note to advertisers: I am MUCH more likely to listen to a commercial or read an ad if it isn't annoying.

In which I complain about loud commercials and annoying pop-up ads... )

Also, does someone wanna do a thesis paper on this? It'd be a fun experiment. Do the pop-up ads, or don't do the pop-up ads, and see how many of the other ads people remember. Then do the loud/normal volume commercials, and see how many of the ads are remembered. Heck, you can probably even compare how many ads before the loud ad are remembered compared to the one after it. You can totally tell the people that they're supposed to be reading a website, or watching a show--performing normal activities they do at home. Heck, you can even see if people remember the loud/annoying pop-up ad's creator in a negative light.

Fuck, I still remember that Juicy Fruit ad that nearly blew my fucking eardrums out. We were watching "Kitchen Nightmares" online, on Fox's website. Also, I've noticed that American car companies make really loud commercials that we always mute.

Geico commercials are almost always watched, and I'll actually turn the volume back on for them. Mastercard commercials are quiet. Commercials geared towards women are also quiet.

See? Not that hard. Really.

This is just random scenes from the ficlet, but basically, Sasuke returns to Konoha and finds out about Naruto/Haseo. And isn't pleased. Not at all.

So he attempts to break the two of them apart. Hilarity ensues. )

Naruto and Jiraiya were ahead of Sakura and the others now, arguing about Jiraiya's novels.

"That's because your books are boring!" Naruto frowned back, stopping in the middle of the trail so he could say his words even louder.

"Naruto," Jiraiya stopped and glanced behind him as Sakura and the others started to catch up before turning to give his student a look as he replied quietly. "You would think a centerfold spread of a naked 'Sakura-chan' was boring if it had too much kanji on it."

"H-Hey! I WOULD NOT! I would--" Naruto shouted, too red and embarrassed to notice Jiraiya's eyes growing wide.

The hairs on the back of Jiraiya's neck stood up on end. "OY, you shouldn't--"

"I would totally find a Sakura-chan centerfold interesting! It's just your books that are so damn borinGRAAAGH--!"

Jiraiya held perfectly still, holding every muscle motionless in sheer terror as Sakura's fist plowed Naruto's head and chest a solid half-meter into the ground.

"You PERVERT!"

The Sannin continued to hold perfectly still as the dust settled, hoping that she wouldn't figure out that it was him who had put those words in Naruto's mouth. In the end, Jiraiya lucked out, as the blow had taken Naruto's recollection of the last ten minutes with it.
