      My throat hurts.

      So I've been gone for a while. I spent the last week between my parents' house and my grandparents' house, practicing driving and doing other random things. Friday I went in and took the test for my driving license, which I passed. I am an officially licensed driver, woo-hoo.

      I'm currently in the middle of reading all your journals and what not, but I wanted to take a break to post my own journal. EDIT: Finished. smiley0.gif

      While I am very happy that I got my license, I am rather unhappy that I didn't make it into the electrician apprenticeship program I talked about. I wasn't told why, just that I didn't score high enough during the interview. I had the thought that someone might have simply beaten me, because I was certain I did really well, but that's life. Having a license will help with the job hunt elsewhere, though, so this week isn't a total loss on that front.

      Nothing much else. Back to reading the insane amount of journals you guys make in just a week.

      Peace,
      Me.

      P.S. Something random from my Motivation Posters folder.

      Is the best movie that has come out this year. If you have not seen it, you need to do so at earliest possible opportunity.

      That is all.

      dragonmanweb What's this?

      It was a long day. Woke up way early, did a journal, and headed off to my grandparents.

      They are helping out with their church's Vacation Bible School, something I'm SOOO glad I didn't have to do. This year there were over 500 little bastards at the event; sheer insanity.

      After they trundled off, my grandfather and I headed out to where my interview was. I got to drive on the freeway! That was cool. So we get there, I go in, find out that 14 of us are being interviewed, time to sit for two hours!

      But eventually it's my turn, and I go and answer their questions, make them laugh, shake hands; overall I think it went really well. I don't find out until next week for certain. That is when I should get my acceptance or rejection letter.

      When that was over, my gramps and I got lunch, then went to pick up grandkids from VBS. There was still a half hour left, so we sat and watched the closing ceremonies for the day. I swear, I've been to concerts that were quieter than those damn kids. After that, it was their house for snacks and arts and crafts and running and screaming and kids Kids KIDS KIDS.

      I don't know how my grandparents do it. They are crazy.

      So eventually I made it home, and then messed around a bit on the computer, but was so wiped I just crashed eventually, way earlier than I normally do.

      And that was my day.

      Peace,
      Me.

      P.S. Here you be:

      I don't have our video ready yet, because I need Kevin's help with a part of it, and he's been working every time I'm free, and I've been busy every time he's off. It will happen soon!

      ~*~

      Today is my interview! I am going in a couple hours to my grandparents' house, from where I will head to my interview when it's time. I am WAAYYYY nervous, so much so that I keep having to retype things because my hands are shaking. A lot is riding on this interview, and if this doesn't pan out... I don't know what I'll do. Head to LaborReady and do day labor while handing out applications to everywhere again, I suppose.

      But I'm not going to think about that, because I have a positive attitude. I WILL get this job. I am ready.

      Peace,
      Me.

      P.S. Dos picturas. (Linked for possible NSFW)

      Here: Link link!

      Oh man. I've been reading all sorts of articles and previews about various upcoming games I've been keeping an eye on, and I saw one link to that blog post. It was so absurd, I just had to link to it.

      In other news, Kevin and I shot another video, which I will probably have up later today or tomorrow. It would be up now, but we ran into some minor technical difficulties and I was feeling lazy.

      That's all for me. Hope you guys are good.

      Peace
      Me.

      P.S. I will give you an extra one next time; I'm tired.

      dragonmanweb What's this?

      So far, my grandmother is stable, but the surgery for her problems isn't until Monday, due to some complications, so that is still up in the air.

      Besides that, I wanted to say that by tomorrow or perhaps the day after, Kevin and I should have another video up of him eating some weird candy or another. We actually have a whole list of things for him to try and eat for others' amusement, but any suggestions are of course welcome.

      We want to do some of our actual movie ideas (i.e. things with characters or plot) but haven't got the time and resources for most of those ideas yet. Also, we are terrible at acting scripted things. We both excel at improv, but need a cameraman or at least a better tripod for that, as we are at our best when we can play off each other.

      Something I wanted to add the other day was... um. Huh. I completely spaced out and forgot again whatever I was going to mention before and did not. Stupid almost non-functional memory. Maybe I will remember later.

      EDIT: I'm pretty sure what I was going to say is that I'm at 99% of the way to Karma Level 50. My previous method of bumping myself up no longer exists. I would just dump all my mods and that generally was enough Karma to go up, but it doesn't really work anymore, eh?

      Peace,
      Me.

      P.S. I really have zero idea what I was going to say, and it's bugging me.
      P.P.S. It's Caturday, so here's two:

      Okay, so my last journal was depressing, but this one is just angry.

      I have two links for you. Numero uno! Y numero dos!

      I am very angry at what this world is coming to. If this continues, I will never fly again. Hell, I'm almost there now.

      Peace,
      Me.

      P.S. This is where it's headed:

      It's only a date, not a holiday. The holiday is Independence Day. This really bugs me, that people just say, "Happy 4th!" or whatever, as though it means something. Is it so hard to say Independence Day?

      Right, anyways. Happy Independence Day to you all. I am going to go watch explosions in honor of America because that's what America does best - make things that go boom. Hopefully there will be lots of food. We do that pretty well, too. Eat lots of food, I mean.

      Man, is this a happy journal or a bitter, sarcastic journal? I can't even tell anymore. I need more sleep. Stupid flies and crappy, holey air mattress making it hard to sleep.

      So perhaps you should all ignore this journal and instead go watch and rate our video!

      Peace,
      Me.

      P.S. Here, something amusing to balance out this journal a bit:

    • Mamba

      10 years ago

      dragonmanweb What's this?

      The candy, not the reptile. Actually, it is Mamba Sours that Kevin tries this week in our latest video. Check it out. Rate and comment, if you can/are willing to! smiley0.gif Unlike our last video, I actually spent the time editing this one, so it isn't just 10 straight minutes of stupid. Instead, it's only 5 minutes of stupid. Hooray!

      Right, anyways. There is good and bad news on the job hunt. The good news is that I was contacted back by the ABC Apprenticeship people, and I have been scheduled for an interview, meaning I passed the little test (which I knew I would). The bad news is that it's not until the 19th of this month, which means I have over two more weeks of no job. Not fun. But I shall persevere, and continue on. Maybe make some more stupid movies, heh.

      Hope you all are good, and please check out our newest movie!

      Peace,
      Me.

      P.S. This is the other kind of mamba. It produces enough venom in one bite to kill 20 men.

      Well it didn't really say that there was a specific place for anything that was pluged into a USB port. I think the problem has to be with the connection to the moniter. I've checked all of the wires 10 times and I'm really sure that they are all correctly placed unless they srewed up on the directions.

      Any other theories?
