A post, at long last.  
*gasp* What is this? A real post? Inconceivable!

RL stuff:
I've sort of been offered another job, which I am going for a sort-of-interview for on Monday, and I am praying so hard that I get it because I really cannot do Walmart anymore. Though honestly, I'm going to miss my coworkers, and even the random people I see everyday but don't know. The new job would be at a little engraver's shop that's just down the street from not one, but two bookstores, and it sounds almost perfect. Given the situation (long story short, they called me and asked me to drop off a resume +other factors) I feel pretty good about getting it. The only reason I can think of that I might not (aside from them deciding I'm a lunatic/blunderer/somewhat useless, all of which is entirely fair and I ain't even bovvered by it) is because... dun dun dun... I am actually actually planning on going back to school next year. o_O

Yes, this means I have actually come to a decision about something, and something important, at that. Hold the phones and the mayo.

And yes, next year, and no, I haven't told my parents yet because it's in a ginormous city 2.5 hours away, and I don't think that telling them it was that or the one that's 14 hours away will help matters. BUT! It's also the city where my best friend is currently going to school so maybe we will get to be roomies and sit around listening to indie music and complaining about money together. Ugh, but my parents. They are going to have perpetual heart attacks every second for the rest of their lives because of this. I know this, and yet I'm still just gonna wait til I get the information package in the mail and be like 'OH DIDN'T I TELL YOU SILLY ME' and then they are going to kill me. Fun fact: I actually suck at breaking things to people gently, for reals. :P Especially considering I've hardly mentioned that I'm planning on going to school at all to them... ...like, maybe three? times...

And, if you're interested, I'm going to be taking English. So basically I'm going to have to bring all my books with me. O_O Which will be both delightful and a blasted nuisance. I'm not sure about minors and things yet, but I'm thinking psychology, though everyone says that's way more boring than you think it will be. (Side note: You'd be amazed how many people do not understand taking English in University. Saying that's my plan always gets me one of two responses. "Oh, so you didn't get a high enough mark in it in high school?" NO ACTUALLY I JUST FREAKING LIKE ENGLISH. :| Or my personal favourite: *confused stare* "But you already speak English." NO ACTUALLY I AM SPEAKING SWAHILI AND THE TARDIS IS TRANSLATING IT FOR YOU. :| Ugh, I just can't.)

After having nothing interesting at all happen to me for a year or more, two big things so close together has me acting quite idiotic. I even spelled my name wrong today. (And since I also cleaned up my laundry this afternoon, I warn you that the apocalypse is coming.)

Now, if you've made your way through all that rambling that I have so inconsiderately decided not to put behind a cut, here are some icons. :D

(Oh by the way, these are mostly what I would classify as rainbow barf and IDK what kind of sugar high I was on when I brought them into existence. By the way #2, Martha Jones is better than everyone and haters may take the exit located immediately to their left. Thank you from the management.)

That does sound like a neat job - certainly quite a bit better than Walmart. What sort of engravings does the shop do?

Ooch. That college business does sound touchy. I'm working on getting into the local college (yes, I am running behind with that!), and thankfully my mom has been very helpful. I really don't know what I'd do without her. But I totally understand where you're coming from! I hope it all works out!

Rainbow barf, hm? : D They look pretty good. I like 20, 24, 38, 44, 46, and 55 best.

It is a very neat job! (I know because I got it and I've already been there a couple times. :D :D Yay!) They do a lot of trophies and medals and nametags and things like that, but they do jewelery as well and they'll engrave just about anything anyone brings in.

Oh, college. How I love the stress it brings before I even start... My parents both know at this point, and I have to say it wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be, but they're not exactly thrilled. :S Oh well. :P I hope yours works out too!

Ha, looking back at them, I suppose they're not too rainbow-y, but when I posted them I felt like I was blinding myself. :P Thank you, dear!

I'm glad the job is going well! It does sound good.

I've postponed college till next semester - my procrastination necessitated that! Oh well.
