It's been a while since I posted. I'm sorry about that. I haven't had much to say. Or maybe it's because I'm just so fucking homesick that I can't deal with saying anything about the fact I miss [personal profile] mdlbear and home so much. Enough about that shit. You don't want to hear about it. It's my fault I moved...but it doesn't mean I like it. Just me making my peace...I miss you all.

The short version is the list. The long version is behind the cuts.

  • School started on Sept 20. In case you hadn't seen me say so, I'm currently taking classes at Edmonds Community College out in Lynnwood at the insistence of several of my friends, including at [ profile] asahoshi (my ex.).The plan is currently to get through college with a Business Manglement Management Associate of Technical Arts degree. I have not made any plans to transfer as of yet because I'm still not entirely sure what the world is going to do to me in the time between now and when I finish. I have transferred about 21 credits from De Anza, so that means I have about 70 or so out of 90 to do. I still have a few loose ends to sort out about my final credit total, but that's not a pressing concern at this second. Financial aid is sitting on my check right now and being a bunch of smeg heads. Grr.

  • RainFurrest. I don't normally write short con reports, but here's the thing in a nutshell. I went and saw [ profile] ryuuaja's concert. I bought a copy of Fragile Dreams that he had on the table. I threw money at him for a colored dark phoenix. I danced to Animals All The Same in my suit during the Furry Variety Show. Soon as he started telling the story, I took my suit out of the backpack and donned it. Soon as the guitar started playing, I was dancing in front of the stage. Surprising, I'm the only fur that dances to that song (it seems). He didn't mind that I did. He loved it. I saw my parents again. Briefly for my father, but spending that much time with Mom again was awesome. I loved it. I want to do it again. It made me an only child again.

  • Moving. Or rather, continues. For those who hadn't heard since after Conflikt 5, I moved to Marysville. Closer to a particular friend by virtue of the fact her family had a room that was being unoccupied. After the unfortunate mishap that kicked off my "new year", I knew I had to move because rent was starting to climb astronomically to the point where it sucked horribly and I couldn't do it any more. My employment at Amazon was too short-lived, and was struggling with a difficult choice to move back into a place I hated and could not reside long term due to my idiotic sister's antics, or staying up here closer to friends who were giving me a chance to escape. Not hard to see where my choice led me, is it?
  • Employment. I call it a change of the tide because my luck has sucked. I was essentially fired from the temp agency under Amazon because my performance wasn't up to their standards. I told them I was going to be slow. I told them I'd try to improve. They don't reward effort worth a damn in the warehouse I was working at. Maybe they respect their other employees, like those in IT. But SMX doesn't respect its grunts. Just gives you a free water bottle and says "You need to memorize this labyrinth in 4 weeks." Fail. Assholes. Anyway, the current title is "Game Tester." Yes, I will still be attending school while I'm doing this. Yes, it will be a PITA to get to due to my inability to drive at the moment. The idea is so I can attempt to afford food while still living with my current room mates and attempt to survive. Things like sanity checks (Shadow Accord), food, and possibly new software for my school work will become the main reasoning behind this job thing. Don't laugh -- it's employment in a market that doesn't want to give anything up because the economy is FUCKED.
  • Websites.I admit I've not touched my own domain in almost a year. I've been a bit busy trying to find the above-mentioned employment, keeping my sanity and trying not to get depressed. The websites I've been asked to work on are really not websites: they're people who got my name from somewhere *glares at [personal profile] mdlbear* and think I'm capable of working miracles. Not true. Tempered Glass doesn't need me as a webmaster, since Dad's basically taking care of that one single handed. I've never heard back about the colored art, so I'm not going to worry about it. Dr. Prather's project can't be completed without the .psd files that she was supposed to send me that I haven't received. SD's project can't be completed because he can't remember the information to his domain and I can't seem to find it -- I have moved since we had that discussion. My own world is screwed up. Aside to Dad: I need to know what that gallery software is you used for the ChaosCam, or if I should ask your nephew what he uses for his site.
  • Emotionals. I won't give details here, because that's a bit too personal and painful right now. You can contact me off-book if you want to discuss it. My attempt at a renewed romance with my ex has faltered. I'm not gonna say more here.

Now I'm all out of words.

Apparently what happened to you at Amazon is their standard operating procedure. Hire cheap contractors, give them impossible goals, and fire them before they have time to improve and maybe make more money.

The gallery software I was using is called "gallery" -- I found it cumbersome to use and nearly impossible to update (and it needed frequent updating because it was full of security holes). I'm pretty sure there are better things now.

Alex is apparently using now, which you have to pay for.
