"Scales won't show your worth as a person (: (: (: (: (: (:" yeah no ****, it's a tool. I don't get mad at a thermometer when it does its job, what logical basis is there to get mad at scales?

Today I was able to set up an appointment at a site for internship. I have to get all dressed up and everything for it. I'm pretty nervous. It's my first real interview.

Nah, real jobs actually ask normal people questions unlike the odd things they love to spring on you at something like a part time retail job interview. They are immensely easier.

Well, it's not like an actual job I'm interviewing for. It's an internship for the Human Services program at my school. 200 hours of internship. But hopefully this won't be too bad. I worked up my resume and got some advice from someone at the student services offices on campus and I'll be using that advice.

They still work out the same way, like an actual professional situation.

Retail hell is things like "What does the color orange mean you emotionally and can you like three separate occasions where the color orange made you feel overly stressful?"

Like I have absolutely no way to answer that and have it even remotely relevant to working as a cashier.

this is actually a fairly good indicator that the employer is ****... or at least **** at hiring (which eventually become one in the same). successful companies integrate their corporate philosophy into the hiring process to screen for employees that will be compatible with that philosophy.

don't separate internships from jobs. they're one in the same. your compensation in the former is usually experience instead of money.

Watching the ZD Marathon right now... Kind of regretting that I didn't watch much of it until now, considering there are only like two games left for them to play.

...There's always next year, I suppose? If I'm still active then.

Great. I got the d***hole driving instructor.
i feel sorry for the **** kids have to go through to get their driver's licence these days. i vastly prefer the old system of "take a test a fetus could pass for a permit. if you're still alive, come back in one year and you can have a licence"

In my high school there were two diver's ed teachers. One would yell a lot and blast country music in the car. The other would legit fail you if you spilled his coffee while driving. I got the loud one. If yours isn't anything like them you should be fine lol.
