      The Interview/walkthrough went well. (My neighbor's dog was even there and I got to help with her, since I was somewhat familiar with her. Good thing too as she is not the most disciplined puppy...and she's a great dane. BIG puppy.)

      I was rather overdressed, but hopefully that makes me look like I was serious about the job rather than as someone who didn't know what they were getting into. I think I did a decent job of showing how confident I was with animals and grooming, though.


      Looks like my chances are 1 in 3 unless there's more than one position open. And I should know next week if they want me to come back in.


      Now for the fun part. Antici.........pation

      I have an interview on Thursday, guys!


      worried.gif


      Its at a dog grooming place. While I have some experience grooming animals to a professional standard for show, it was sheep and goats, not dogs. But the overall basics are the same. I'd really just need to learn the breed specific cuts and that office's specific routines.


      Best yet, the place is basically across the friggin street. (Which would leave me open to being called in on random possibly, but hey it'll earn more money)


      I'm really nervous but really hopeful! Now I gotta go shopping for the appropriate interview attire. (slacks, heels, and fancy shirt just won't do for this one)

    • Smuggler’s Bounty 3: Cantina Box (spoilers)

      2 years ago

      Ember

      It has finally arrived!


      tumblr_o4i8v32PgQ1tcwlp6o1_400.jpg

      Time to unbox!!!!!




      tumblr_o4i8v32PgQ1tcwlp6o2_500.jpg

      First of course is the patch and pin, featuring Greedo and (probably) Figrin D'an respectively. Pretty much called these two being featured on these particular items, but that’s hardly shocking. They’re pretty iconic of the Cantina scene, so it was an easy bet. But moving on!



      tumblr_o4i8v32PgQ1tcwlp6o4_500.jpg

      Chewie pen! I don’t use pens all that often, and tend to go with fancier ones when I do. So its more of a novelty collectors item in my case. Chewie isn’t a character I collect a lot of, but its pretty cute.



      tumblr_o4i8v32PgQ1tcwlp6o3_500.jpg

      Of course, the shirt, which is a pretty neat design. Its a small this time (I figured out how to change it!), which still seems rather on the large side (not really much smaller than the medium it seems). So to my fellow small ladies who are stuck wondering what size to get because our chests make sizing awkward? You’re best off getting the small. I have a huge rack, and this thing is still a little loose on me.



      tumblr_o4i8v32PgQ1tcwlp6o5_500.jpg

      The part we’ve all waited for… exclusive Pop Vinyls! These are all new molds, designed specifically for this box. Not just repainted Chase Variants. Ben was shown on twitter cause the Funko crew was just too excited to keep him a secret. (Can’t really blame them. He looks pretty badass.) Snaggletooth was the surprise. While nobody really cares so much about the character IN universe, there’s a whole big backstory involving the original Cantina Scene toy lines, and the mix ups and variations that happened when creating the original figures.Which you can read about in better detail here. So to toy collectors, he’s kind of a big deal.



      tumblr_inline_o4i9usJpFd1rafqzb_500.png

      Overall, its a decent bounty. I’m not really disappointed by any of it (except maybe that the shirt is still baggy on me at the smallest, but alas.) None of them are the characters that make me squeal with delight, but that’s ok. Its just a matter of personal favorites, so that will be hit and miss given the boxes’ alternating themes. And seeing as the next box is Bounty Hunter themed… My luck will be far greater in that one methinks. ^_^

      Shoutout to @Myshu for being an A+ chill roomie and putting up with my anxiety behind the wheel of her car.


      Seriously, I felt kinda like this any time I went over 15 mph:

      But in the end, we are unharmed, unwrecked, and un-pulled over by the cop that passed us.

      Yay!

    • In Like A Lion

      Well on my first day of March I had the lovely morning experience of spending hours trying to find out where to vote. You see, the county I live in hasn't latched onto the internet age, and the locals don't seem clued in about anything. So there was nowhere to look it up, (internet sent me to the next flipping county and back), and everyone we asked in town sent us somewhere incorrect. It was like an inane scavenger hunt that had a time limit and very little payoff. Finally, the library was competent enough to know exactly where to send us. Turned out the polling place was within walking distance of the house. *facepalm*

      So anyway, I finally managed to vote. I've seen the results for the state already and feeling increasingly distressed by the futility of it. But maybe that's just the frustration of the morning talking.


      Then discovered I left my only pencil sharpener in Australia, so the sketching I've been doing the past couple days.is halted till tomorrow.

      But on the other hand I was able to get my Celebi, courtesy of Nintendo Network. So its not all been frustration. Adorable, anime-eyed, time-traveling, winged little onion is now mine.


      Soooo more updates. I am still looking forward to RTX, though I'm worried about cost of food and merch since there's still no news on the job front. I apply, but don't even get as far as being asked for an interview. I've even tried places to which I have social connections, but no good so far. Still "little-engine"ing my way through it.


      Here's hoping the rest of the month gives me better luck than the first day did. Please, go out like a lamb...

    • Paranoia Pays Off

      2 years ago

      Ember

      I have this weird habit when I familiarize myself with a place. I automatically figure out escape routes in case of emergency and the like. I learn its weak points in case of forced entry. Pretty much everyone in my family has paranoia at some level, so this isn't too surprising.


      However, it came in handy today.
      I locked myself out of the house.
      Was out on my daily walk and realized I'd forgotten my damn keys.

      When I got back I was cussing up a storm and desperately hoping I'd forgotten to lock the door too, but no such luck.


      In short.... I know the best and worst ways to break into a house, and how to do so without damaging anything or myself, and I am really really glad I have a natural knack for knowing how to enter or exit a place via nontraditional means. Including a window that one would think is much too high for my tiny legs to get me up to.


      Also I am really glad the elderly neighbor didn't see me and decide to call the cops cause that would have been awkward, though it would likely have made this story far more interesting.


      Also also, this is why my character class is Rogue.

      I wasn't sure how I'd feel today, or what I'd be doing.

      But today I moved both a washer and dryer, exercised, ran an errand that needed doing, worked on my crane project (175 out of 1000!), worked on a new project, and learned how to do something I've wanted to learn for a while… its been a super productive day. I am sore, but I feel very accomplished.


      I can’t think of a better way to honor Monty’s memory than to seize the time we have, and finally do those all things we kept putting off.


      Keep Moving Forward

      It was so surreal...being in a theatre...completely filled with Rooster Teeth fans...


      It was beautiful.


      Also, Lazer Team was very fun. Especially all the lovely Easter Eggs (hint to those who haven't seen it yet: stay for after the credits)


      @Myshu and I had lots of fun at the event, and a lovely time hanging with @madmanmoe before the movie.
