I did it

I did the unimaginable. I bought an e-reader. It's a pretty basic one, second hand and neither Kindle nor Apple (but Apple doesn't sell e-readers, do they?).
Anyway, I solemnly swear I'll only use it for: fanfiction, literature under public license, literature under public license in foreign languages (anything neither English nor popular is pretty expensive here. Or nearly impossible to find.)
I will NEVER EVER support piracy. And most likely I'll never buy an e-book. I love the real thing way too much for that.
So, that's off my chest :)

My dreams are pretty weird at the moment. This morning I was driving an office chair - no, speeding with an office chair. I don't know where nor why, but I was fast! :)
Last week or so I was a russian nobleman seducing my valet. My, those white silk stockings!! :D :D

Whew, my life's quite busy at the moment. At least busier than it's been for a very long time. This weekend S, F, M and I went to see a comedy show and afterwards we watched two films at F's. The show was aweome. Great comedian and a great audience.
The film was not that great, but okay... and it was nice to spend some time with the others, too.

M stayed at F's, too. I guess it was because F had to leave early and F didn't want me to be uncomfortable...
The weather was brilliant - I spent quite some time lying in the grass dozing - I tried to read, but it was much nicer just to lie there and enjoy the sun :)

Yesterday evening I sent all nine theses. Before midnight.

Now? Let's hope he accepts them.


Good news!

Well... on Tuesday I had a job interview. It was pretty okay and I didn't die of nervousness.
Yay me! :)
They told me they'd contact me by the end of next week (and I wondered how I'd survive that). Well, yesterday the boss's secretary called me to tell me that they'd decided to give me the job.

I'm still pretty high on endorphines right now.

I mean, apart from the fact that it's for two years and means more money than the internship - they decided that I'm the one for the job after two days!
That really feels good. I mean, I try and ignore stupid comments about the (supposed) uselessness of humanities. But it still - with time - gets to me. Makes me doubt my own worth and the worth of what I'm doing and enjoying.
So this is absolutely awesome for me and my feeling of self-worth.

cut for ranting )

Yesterday I had a job interview. The second one. :)
It really, really feels good - a month ago I sent out five applications; one answer was "no, thank you", one was "we'd invite you for a job interwiew but you're a little late", one didn't answer at all... and two invited me for an interview.
Well, basically I got the internship I applied for after the first interview - but last week I got the other invitation.

And it really makes me feel... good about myself. I never expected to get two (basically three) positive answers for five applications. It's awesome.
