debating whether to head down to the post office or not... it closed a couple hours ago and it's unlikely that the RAM I got would fit in my tiny PO box, unless it was put into one of those keyed delivery boxes, so getting my RAM doesn't seem likely
buuuut it would be a good excuse to go grab some food...
is there any word that means *precisely* the opposite of "oxymoron"? "redundant" works but it's not specific enough...
trying to shape up my resume, paraphrasing my previous supervisor telling me "you really know your shit" is an interesting exercise
waking up with a slight headache is never fun, but tea usually helps
... as long as I let it cool off before burning my tongue >.<
shit I forgot that my RAM is probably at my PO box by now, I should've checked that today
oh well, tomorrow it is, gotta shower and get to bed soonish anyway
I should really do my dishes more often... get small portions of them done each day rather than waiting and ending up having to wash like a billion things at once
had a weird dream last night, I don't remember much of the details but at one point there was a doctor or somebody who said I was carrying an egg (yes, in that sense)
I'm equal parts sad and confused
the goal with that being that with the RHCSA I might be able to get my foot in the door *somewhere* with it proving that I at least know *something* about tech. even if I end up doing some stupid help desk thing it's better than nothing x.x
job search (~) Show more
if nothing else I really need a job so I can finally have a regular schedule to keep myself to
but I still haven't heard anything, not even a damn interview from months of looking. maybe I'm looking in the wrong places? maybe I'm looking for the wrong stuff?
the fact I can't even take a shitty part time gig because it'd mess up my benefits and stuff is really shitty too. I'd be okay with finding some dumb retail job or whatever, but I *need* full time x.x
food Show more
like seriously this cold brew coffee is literally from concentrate, all I did was pour some into a mug and add water
and well crackers and cheese is pretty basic just to begin with, but it always feels more pretentious than that. not to mention it's *goat cheese* brie, I mean really
and yet, the story isn't really gone, is it?
it's still there, everything is always there. even when the plot comes to an end, the story and the world and the characters all continue existing
not in any "real" ongoing sense, of course, but more in the way that they continue influencing you and keep being a part of you. the stories and the characters all carry on in your memories
it's more obvious if you're into fanfics, but they never really stop being there just because you reached the end
finally got off my butt and finished reading #homestuck
I feel... I dunno, I guess it's just that weird emptiness you feel when you finish reading a book and there's no more to read
you spend so long immersing yourself in this story and knowing and thinking and feeling these characters and arcs
you laugh and cry and love and hate and a part of yourself becomes dedicated to this story and then...
the story is gone, and it's back to our normal lives. no more of it taking up space in your brain
and before you ask, "koreaboo" is rejected due to sounding too much like a yu-gi-oh monster (you know the one)
