Interview Suit

Today I bought an interview suit. I have no idea if it looks okay or not. I tried on like 800 of them. I was in the stupid store forever. It was really irritating. I have problems finding pants that fit, let alone pants that match suit jackets and crap. I'm also an idiot. What the heck am I supposed to wear underneath the suit part? I bought this camisole thing, but I'm not sure if I should wear that or not. Is that inappropriate for an interview? I took pictures of myself wearing the camisole and wearing a scoop-neck blue shirt underneath. Which one works better? Is blue even the best color to wear with brown? Am I dumb for buying a brown suit? I tried to find a black one, but all the black stuff they had at the store didn't fit me right...Oh crap. As if I'm not nervous enough about interviews in general, now I have to be nervous that I buy clothes that make me look like an idiot.
I found out yesterday that Fairfax County will also interview me in January when I'm out visiting Jake. Hopefully that will increase my chances of actually getting a job...

You're looking at Goat Porn, sicko!!

Lelani says that my blog is goat porn. Hmm...well, this is the first picture of a goat that has made it onto my blog. But, now, I think you've given me ideas, Lelani. ;)

I think I like this one better

Still, I don't think it's quite believable....hmm...

Wow, I'm on the cover of Cosmo!'m addicted to trying to figure out Photoshop now. Obviously, my skills need some work. But here's my face on Scarlett Johanson's body... Wow, I never realized how ugly my face is until I tried to cover a pretty face with mine...

I'm pretty sure that I am getting stupider.

Well, grad school alone makes me feel like I'm getting stupider. It's like the world's knowledge is this huge mural and all I can focus on is a little smudge of paint in the lower left-hand corner. I live in a school psych cave. I feel like once upon a time I had access to broader bases of knowledge...

But that's not all. I'm also forced to take education classes here in Eau Claire that treat me like a child and propagate misinformation. I took a class this past summer in which we spent half of our day practicing acting (it was supposed to be a class about learning human relations)...we pretended we were different types of animals, we had to "sculpt" emotions nonverbally with our bodies...what a load of crap. Now I'm in this stupid class that is supposed to be teaching me about reading. This prof. got up in the front of the room and started talking about learning disabilities and ADHD as if they are synonymous. All of the school psych students just gasped...and this woman just kept talking and talking and didn't address why half of the room looked shocked and offended. Now she wants us to create an art project as half of our final. All we have to do is make something artsy that mentions the word reading and we get an A. is so frustrating that I'm paying for these classes that are only making me stupid.

I was once in a Princeton rock band too!

Okay, so I just found out that Potato Stu has its own webpage. Take a look at it. I think someone should contact them to book a gig with them...

PS I found out that Wes Hunting Sr. did make an ornament that held up. I don't know if it broke the record or not, though...I'm still waiting to hear about that.

Before I go bridal shopping...

Anyone willing to go power suit shopping with me?


I have my first internship interview on January 6th. The interview is in Adelphi, MD, which is in Prince George's County. I'm going out to stay with Jake between Jan. 5th and 15th...I think I might try to contact some of the other places I've applied to to see if I can do some other interviews while I'm there...
I hope that I can find an internship! I'll have to prepare for my interviews during Xmas...cross your fingers for me!

Welcome Christmas, Christmas Day!

Your Christmas is Most Like: A Charlie Brown Christmas

Each year, you really get into the spirit of Christmas.
Which is much more important to you than nifty presents.

It's almost Christmas!

Lelani and I decorated her tree this weekend. I was home so that I could go to a dinner at my grandma's house. Lelani and I had a slumber party. We also are having a contest to find out who can pass as a better whore. Go to My Facebook album to check out pictures!

I'm going to pass at least one class

I submitted my IRB proposal yesterday. I'm so happy that Elk Mound agreed to do this survey, because the school psych there has been so helpful to me. She helped me write a letter explaining the survey to parents yesterday morning, and was really nice to me. She sat down and talked to me and gave me a cup of was awesome! I'm not going to have to get individual consents from the parents (provided that IRB is okay with what my proposal says...I'll find out in a week or two probably...). Maybe I can actually get my thesis done before I have to move in July.
I wrote my reflection paper today. It's five pages long (including my reference page...Christ, I can't believe she wanted us to have references for a reflection paper. I hope five pages is enough for her...her length requirements say "no more than 10 pages". I've heard through the grapevine that everyone else thinks 10 pages is way too much. Other people have said that they'll write 4-5 pages, so hopefully they'll stick to that. I need to work ahead on transcribing a counseling session, writing a paper for that class, and writing a paper for my reading class so that I can go home next weekend.


This is kind of funny. It's not as cool as Postsecret, because it doesn't have the visuals, but still is interesting:
