This is my internet scrapbook place where I post my thoughts, fandoms, and anything else I find and think is cool.

I was very under the weather today. Some serious stomach problems kept me from going to Jacob’s little cousin’s birthday, which I actually wanted to go to. I picked out his present and it was a huge hit, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to play with it a bit myself. And while it’s no secret I have some favorites in Jacob’s family, I did want to go to his grandparent’s house tonight because I could tell them all about my job opportunity and I could show them I was worth something. I feel bad that Jacob had to go without me.

Anyway, after spending the whole day in bed, I’ve been able to get a little food in my stomach and am starting to feel better. Binging some netflix and tumblr. And the lady that backed into my car in the parking lot yesterday admitted guilt which is good news.

Early bedtime tonight I think. I’m hoping if I can sleep through the night I can kick this bug. I want to be able to go watch Jacob at his hamburger barbecue competition tomorrow. We’re pretty sure a green chile cheeseburger (with an excellent combo of gruyere and swiss cheese and authentic New Mexican green chile) should win something. Can’t find those flavors anywhere around here and I hope it blows their socks off. 

I’m just rambling now because I’ve taken a lot of different stuff throughout the day to combat different things, and then I got anxiety over the situation and had to take something for that. I’m ok, but looking forward to this feeling being over with.

I’ve been asked to interview with the company in person after two hour-long interviews. At first I was asked to come to their Philadelphia office (it would only be a couple hours drive), but now it sounds like they want to fly me to their Portland, Maine office. I can’t help but get my hopes up a little bit now because if I didn’t have a seriously good shot at getting this job they wouldn’t be spending money on a roundtrip flight for me. And not just me, but the person who would hire me works remotely from her home in Massachusetts, so she has to pay to travel as well in order to meet with me.

Also, my computer seems to have some inside information. It’s been slowly dying for a long time now, but just in the last couple days it’s really going kaput. It wants to highlight everything I happen to move my mouse over and other times when I type letters it won’t move any spaces and will put letter on top of letter. It seems to think I might be able to afford a new computer soon (hopefully!!!) and now it wants to be left alone to die in peace. 

I got the purple taken out of my hair today and got it back to a little bit lighter of a color than I usually have it. I kind of got a natural looking and unintentional ombre because of the bottom being bleached, but it is very subtle and it’s nice. I even splurged on some fancy stuff to put in my hair to repair all the damage I’ve done to it.

And now my computer just started going backspace when I hit “enter” along with inserting my current text I’m typing into the middle of previous paragraphs. It’s finding new ways to be broken hourly (I wish this were an exaggeration, but it’s not).
