That's not what the Death card means

When will the world thank Neil Diamond for all he's done for us?

Yep, yep, journals, stuff, yep. News? No.

Congratulations to Jill and Bear, again. Sorry it's a few weeks late, but you understand I'm very wrapped up in my own personal angst.

Congratulations to Lyndsay and Andre, for the same reason.

Signed with yet another placement agency. Waiting to hear from them, too. Though, this weekend I got something in the mail I'd never seen before: a letter from a job, letting me know they received my application and resume and would be in touch if they found me suitable. That's never happened before. I've been sending out resumes for months now, and that's the first one that even acknowledged my application. It was very simple and not encouraging at all; what it did do was make me angry in retrospect at all those other places I sent resumes.

(That's technically not true - I sent one resume to a cousin of a professor of mine, who responded with, um, "constructive" criticism of my resume and the way I had sent it. He clearly wasn't hiring, though, and if he was I got the impression that my hand-written [AMATEUR MISTAKE!] envelope would have led him to throwing out my resume unread. But, that event aside, this is a first.)

Um, I turned 33.

I won a Galactus.

I'm going to Vermont later this week, to see autumn in New England, my mom, and just to get out of town for a bit.

That's about it. Let me know if I missed anything.

--14:24 PM, EST, Warminster, PA, I'm making a note here: "huge success"
