So they didn't have a closing cook tonight, so Jen recruited me. She gave me a nice two-hour break at 5:30, during which I came back to the apartment and took a much-needed rest. I haven't run around like that for a long time. My legs hurt like nobody's business. :/

Tomorrow, I volunteered to work 6 PM to 9, though knowing Josh and Friday nights, I'm likely to be out sooner. Next week, Jen has me closing Tuesday and Wednesday.

No word yet from Dr. Colgate.

Happy hail day!

One year. One whole year. How are things around here? Roofs are still dented and broken, some buildings still have broken windows, and the sign outside El Cam has yet to be fixed. There are still cars sitting in parking lots around campus with broken windshields, unmoved since the storm. The page with the pictures I took on that day is still up, and can be accessed here.

Holy carp, this coat's coming along nicely. One quarter of the outside is done now. I can't wait until it's finished.

Dr. Colgate has responded. He wants to see a transcript to see what classes I've taken. This means there's still a chance. Though, it's going to become slim when he sees my grades. ^^;

Began seamwork on the new coat project this evening. I'm very happy with it so far (even if it is only lining at this point). It's going to be strictly costume, as the cloth has absolutely no insulative properties whatsoever. It still looks badass. And it flows like water, I tellz ya. I can't wait until it's finished; I hope to be done in time for Halloween, and maybe even RHPS. Though, the lining could stand to be ironed; it's a kind of satin cloth, and has been sitting all wrinkled-up in a Rubbermaid tub, so it's got all sorts of creases.

I frightened someone on IRC with my views on sex [using Tantra as the prime example; basically, have sex promiscuously so you'll see that it's meaningless overall (just my fairly skewed way of seeing things, though the view is also based in religion)].

Dr. Kieft e-mailed me back, informing me that they have already hired another student. She also informs me that Dr. Colgate will inform me if there is still another opening. I'm going to cross my fingers. And yes, I know my previous inactivity allowed someone else to get there before I did.

Work at Pizza Slut begins Thursday at 2.

After having revised my resume and cover letter, I am actually surprized by how qualified I am for the other job. I've got my amateur radio technician license and I've worked on computer electronics for some time, plus I've taken several classes in high school on computer programming and software (I didn't retain the programming bits at all, which is why I'm not a CS major). My electronics experience, I'd hope, would be at least useful. My problem is, while I know where to put what to do what in certain situations, I don't know the math behind it all, nor could I engineer something. Meh.

I ramble a lot. :/

Roque and the lot were considering going down to Las Cruces for the XPrize countdown thing; I would go, but the choice is (a)Go, spend $6 to get in, spend the night at Roque's place, and stand around, or (b)Stay here for free, be around for work, don't have my parents worry about where I am and call 10+ times, don't have someone important miss me, and still be around for RHPS. I chose b.

Went down to Pizza Hut this evening. They reportedly desperately need cooks. Jen (the RGM) told me to return tomorrow at around 3 PM to fill out paperwork and whatnot.

What about the other jobs, you ask? I'm lazy as fuck and haven't written a cover letter yet. Yeah, I know. This really shouldn't be too surprising.

Some explanation on the spiritual post earlier; on this journal so as not to clutter friends' pages, cut to keep it from those who wish not to read it )

EDIT: I finally got up off my duff and wrote a semi-decent cover letter. It shall be sent out tomorrow morning, after I confirm that the job posting is still up. :/
