Job Searching

So my mom says that if I don't get into Governor school I have to get a job. And that if I don't get a job this summer, I have to next summer.

Muah! I found a way to do it which she never expected. Though it probably wont work for this summer, due to my age, but it is definitely worth careful consideration for next summer: Ta-Da INTERNSHIPS!!

Would that not be so cool? And considering some even come with housing and stipends and college credit (!!!!!), I would be so tickled pink I'd be turning blue.

Girl's State

So a couple weeks ago I got an application for it, and later that night I was bored so I decided to go ahead and fill it out. Had great fun filling it out too, mainly because I was making fun of it, but I put down actual answers. So a week or so later I got a letter which pretty much said "Show up, Saturday the 19th and get interviewed." That was fine and dandy. Woot, not a big deal... until the morning of the 19th.

My first mistake was suddenly getting freaked out about what if they asked me questions about religion or something family oriented. How much is too much to say? How much do I sugar coat it? How could I get away with out actually answering such a question? So while I nail bited my way to the American Legion Post, a place I used to go as a child when Dad was a DJ, Dad helped me come up with some good answers. So we get there, and I head into the place, take off my coat, sit down, look at my watch- oh good! I'm on time! its 8:45-and sit.

and sit.

and sit.

Till 9:30.

And its drafty as hell, and I'm stuck next to the door. I ended up putting my coat back on.

So finally its time for the interviews. And I got three interviewers, each asked one question...

They were all political questions. Shit.

Question 1: I blew it completely. I didn't know that Bush was doing something with Social Security! Agh! I came home and did a quick search, and realized you can't swing a dead cat with out hitting it. Ugh. So I screwed up that one royally. But incase your wondering my response was "Um. I didn't know he was planning on reforming it. You see, since I blog I am more up to date on international politics." BOOOOOOMM!!!! the Patented Bullshit Meter just broke from a sudden influx!

Question 2: I honestly can't remember whether I did good or not, much less what the question is.

Question 3: It was about Iraq's elections. And I think I did this one okay but seeing as the only info I had stored in my puny little mind was what I hear from Dad, it wasn't that great.

Today we find out who got in.
10 bucks says itís not me. Any takers?

Personality Quirks

Everyone has them, and everyone is blissfully unaware of their own.

Now what defines a personality quirk? Well personality is defined as: "the complex of all the attributes--behavioral, temperamental, emotional and mental--that characterize a unique individual;" and a quirk is defined as: "the Descriptor that stems from an Omegaed Planet. which is neither advantageous nor disadvantageous on the whole. Like a Weakness or Power, it should be somehow exceptional or supernatural." So from that its logical to assume a personality quirk is "the complex of all the attributes that stems from an Omegaed Planet."...



or maybe not.

My top 10 personality quirks:

1) If I buy a book that is part of a series, I have to buy the rest of the series, otherwise it annoys the hell out of me
2) I always listen to a CD for a week straight right after I buy it.
3) In tech drawing I always change Auto CAD so that I am drawing on black with white lines
4) I have a program that over rides text colors on AIM so that I don't have to read the yucky crap my friends think is snazzy (Pink on Orange is just a no)
5) If bored in class I'll start doodling on my worksheets. Even if I have to turn it in.
6) If someone calls me "Rach", even if its a teacher, I snap at them with out thinking
7) I always take apart calenders. I buy them for the pictures, not for the calender part
8) I can't keep my room clean if my life depened on it, yet my locker and prompt book are spotless
9) I refuse to wear streight leg or boot cut pants
10) I hate drinking cold soda.
What about you guys? Got any quirks?
