      Is what life is like right now.  Nothing really new to report, trying to see if I can take a tour of the 2 schools I'm thinking of.  Both are an hour away but one is north while the other is south.  One is a community college (Orange Coast) while the other is the Arts Institute.  Leaning a little bit more on OC due to tuition and less lawsuits and controversies.  However  AI seems more geared to baking as opposed to OC.  Trying to find time to take a tour or each school and make a decision from there.


      In not really news I'm saving up for a Switch and debating if I should get Red Dead Redemption 2 or not.  Nearly done with FFXV, just 2 and a half more chapters.

      Is how I feel at the moment.  Why?  I was trying to look up tuition and how apply for the school I wanted to go to (the art's institute of San Bernardino).  However the front page states they will no longer be taking anyone at that campus and pointed me to 2 of their other campuses.  Thought that was strange.


      Did some digging and apparently it's not just my school.  They're closing 18 of them across the U.S.  They're closing because not enough people are applying.  They don't have enough money to keep them open.  Considering how tuition has been sky rocketing, not to mention tuition for AI for an associates in baking is $50,000 I'm shocked but not surprised.


      So now my options are the one in North Hollywood (not doing) or the one in San Diego (thinking about it).  Rather than apply for their fall semester I was going to wait and try in January.  Hopefully by then I'll have a better idea on where I am and possibly have the last bit of my student loan paid off.


      Other than that I've been enjoying my job.  Had to get new shoes since I stand all day and the previous pair I had was not working.  Also had to get ear plugs cause I have another ringing in my ears.  So far it's working fine.  Gonna see if a friend want's to do anything is weekend cause I haven't seen her since last December.

      I got a job!  I'll be doing laser etching on glasses.  It's privately owned, by that I mean it's a wife and her husband.  They do it out of their garage, basically I'll  be placing glass in the printers and taking them out when they are done (each take a minute and there's 3 printers).  Also placing them in boxes, insulating them, and taping them shut.


      I start next Monday, I just wish I could start this week.  Why?  1. bored, somewhat stopped looking for jobs and now I have a bunch of free time.  I don't know what to do with myself.  2. haven't been out in awhile and going a little nuts.  Also I have been trying my best not to spend anything. 3. money.


      These guys have a laid back attitude, overall they seem great.  Just hope I don't have the same problems as my last one.

    • Con Wrap Up

      I went to Comic Con last week and here’s what I did.  Sorry for the long post.


      Thursday: Got to the convention center early and was expecting a long line since I was headed to Ballroom 20.  However there wasn’t.  There was approximately 50 people in front of me which is unheard of.  I couldn’t help but wonder where everyone else was.  Cause Ballroom 20 is always packed!  Regardless I got in and was 7 rows away from the front.


      First off was From the Bridge which is a documentary by Spencer F. Lee about the evolution scifi, fantasy, and horror and how it shaped society.  How it kind of seemed childish and there really wasn’t a place that people could go to for these genres.  Seems really interesting and I wish I could’ve see more.  The documentary won’t be out til I believe November.


      Got stuck watching the reboot of Charmed, wasn’t a fan the first time.  Then Tell Me A Story which will be on CBS all access.  A retelling of fairy tales with modern settings.  On the fence about that one.  Next up was A Discovery of Witches, it’s a book series that will turn into a tv series.  Again on the fence about this one, a woman is a witch but denies it cause of what happened to her family.  And she ends up falling for a vampire.


      Then it was Bobcat Goldthwait’s Monsters and Misfits a tv series that has monsters and such but humorously done.  An example being a guy goes on a date with a mermaid or a news reporter exposes some guy running for mayor as a werewolf.  Seems funny.  Finally I was waiting for Niantic’s panel and about 5 minutes before it comes on, someone over the intercom announces it’s been cancelled >_< then walked around the exhibit floor a bit.


      Friday: Got into the Indigo Ballroom and saw Adventure Time.  Saw exclusives for the movie that’s coming out.  Looks like it’s going to be a battle between Princess Bubblegum and her Uncle Gumbald.  Also incredibly sad that this is the last season.  Found myself nearly crying when I was watching John DiMaggio trying to hold it together himself.  The show has been on for 10 years!


      Fooly Cooly was immediately afterwards, most of it was taken up by a preview of the first episode of season 3.  It was great listening to Kari Wahlgren (Haruko).  Also what I thought was interesting was that the CEO of Production I.G. mentioned that the were looking for different directors who had never seen FLCL and see their take on the series.  The things he wanted for sure in the series was that it was set in the same world, Haruko was in it, wanted the original creators/writers/etc. for the series, and The Pillows must do the music.  I like season 2 and I can’t wait for season 3.


      Next up was Dream Corp LLC off Adult Swim, not my cup of tea.  Tried to like it but I found it to be annoying.  Then Venture Bros, wondering if I should start this series or not.  Tried to years ago but it didn’t do anything for me.  Maybe things have changed?  Robot Chicken was next on the list, I remember liking it as a kid but now it just bugs me.  Again tried to like it but I couldn’t.


      My last panel of that day was Final Space, I waiting to see Olan Rogers.  The cast was hilarious, it just got picked up for season 2.  It’s a very silly series but it also has a lot of sad and real moments within it.  I think my favorite bit was when Coty Galloway (Avocato) saw his name sign with the voices he was doing next season.  The sign said “various” as in various voices, he thought a character had that name XD


      Saturday: Got into the Indigo Ballroom again to see Steven Universe.  Holy crap we got to see a new episode and what White Diamond looks like.  We’re also getting a movie! Listening to Rebecca Sugar is always great, just found out she see’s herself as non-binary.


      Afterwards I rushed over to Room 6BCF to see Quick Draw that’s always funny to watch.  Usually there’s Sergio Aragones and Scott Shaw but there’s always a guest and this time it was Lalo Alcaraz.  He does political comics, a lot of Trump related junk, my sides were hurting.


      Cartoon Voices was up with people like J. P. Karliak (The Boss Baby: Back in Business, The New Looney Tunes), Julie Nathanson (Skylanders, Avengers Assemble), John Mariano (Animaniacs, Hey Arnold!), Kari Wahlgren (Bunnicula, Fooly Cooly), Roger L. Jackson (The Powerpuff Girls, Ghostface), Matthew Mercer (Thundercats, Overwatch).  They read a script that was Rapunzel but put their twist on it and again I died laughing. 


      Then went to the exhibit hall and bought more junk I probably don’t need.  Did the same thing on Sunday.  Things I saw and/or thought was awesome, sorry some might be blurry, my camera is not that great:

      Cause I haven't been out in awhile, been penny pinching.  Still looking for a job, did a few interviews last week and sadly haven't heard back yet (one told me it would be 2 weeks >_< ).  Have one tomorrow in the morning.


      In other news my cousin who runs her own business (arranging parties and such) asked me to help her with my other cousin's baby shower.  I'll be doing a cake and cupcakes.  Still working on what kind of cake they will be, the color scheme, what supplies I need, etc.


      Also found this silly manga called Gokushufudou: The Way of the House Husband basically about a guy who use to be a yakuza and he's now a house husband, I find it to be funny.

      Current mood, trying my best not to come off as desperate.  But I am.

       

      Well I've managed to get back into a routine which I think has helped a lot.  Been going to sleep at regular hours and exercising when I get up.  Have breakfast than go job hunting.  So far I've had a few bites and interviews set up.

       

      Other than that the only new thing going on is I'm trying to go to a county fair with a friend for something to do.

      Seems to be my current state, that and being constantly tired and having my stomach growl at odd hours.  Been trying to rework myself back into the day and it's taking a little longer that I thought.


      Been job hunting a few look nice but nothing I really want or if I do want it they're in areas too far from me or have something on their application that I do not have experience in.  Still looking, trying to remain hopeful.

      After days of consideration and talking with family I have decided to quit my job.  It was not an easy decision.  But it stresses me out to the point of some nights being in tears.  I'm constantly miserable, I hate going into work and going out of work. I fear that I am not good enough.  It really doesn't help when you have a trainer that somewhat harps on you.  Especially when I forgot something or looked in the wrong area.


      My boss says I'm doing great, sure there are things I can work on but I was doing fine out of training.  Which makes me feel worse.  I feel like I'm failing him and that I'm failing myself.  This is what I want to do and now it feels like chore to the extreme.  That what I bake is not up to standards.  Which really makes me wonder if I should go back to school or not.


      Been questioning a number of things about my life and I don't know what to think or what to do.  I guess wait for my two weeks to be over and start job hunting again.  After that, I don't know.  Sorry this is so depressing.

      This is fine.


      Current mood.  I feel like I mess up at work a lot.  My trainer nit picks at everything I do and I hate the fact that I'm not quick enough.  Trying to get better and still trying to adjust to this odd sleep schedule.  I hate how I go to sleep tired and wake up tired.  Also not liking where I am in life and trying not to feel like crap.

      Thought about dropping by and seeing how RT has changed past year.
      Its fun to see that some of the old crew is still hanging around. Perhaps I should come back too.

      See that's well animated and choreographed and all that stuff but it's using all this new technology. Part of what made it so much fun to watch in the early days was the team dealing with the limitations of Halo 1 and the video capture software they had, making us wonder how they did some shots from a first person view and all that other good stuff, now there's no mystery to it.

      And I don't even think that was his funniest review. I highly suggest bookmarking that link I gave to the list of all his reviews, going through them till you see a title that strikes your interest and check it out.

      I especially liked both his review of Super Smash Bros. Brawl AND a special video he did where he responded to all the hate mail he got from his SSBB review. Seriously, once you watch that hatemail video, you will not be able to stop yourself from using the following phrase all the time:

      "So, without further adieu. Go Team Retard!"
