Adulting: NEW JOB

Cue the Hallelujah Chorus.

Oh yeah.  It’s happening.  It’s finally, finally happening. After 10 very long months of doing nothing, I am gainfully employed. Starting March 21st, I will be working at the library where I’ve been volunteering at as a page.  Basically, I’ll be one of those people you see running around with a cart shelving books, amongst… Continue reading Adulting: NEW JOB

The Waiting Game 2: Paranormal Activity

HhHiIiIsSsSsSsSsS....

As you can see, I’m still waiting.  I also appear to be possessed by some impatient demon who just REALLY wants to know about this job.
