Man, today has not been my best day. So I'm gonna gripe in my blog.
First off, I've been applying to some local stores, including Lowes, since I need a summer job. Lowes has seasonal positions, and I've applied for a dozen in the last couple of weeks, including like 4 this weekend. Monday morning (1 AM) I get four emails that all say "You aren't accepted." Then my sister comes home from school, applies for one position online Sunday night, and BOOM she has an interview the next day. What the heck?
Granted, I did sign up for a college student online job finder thingy... which has lots of technical jobs in the local area. Most of them aren't the temporary summer stuff I'm interested in, but I've applied for a couple, and I did get an email from one of them asking for some writing samples, which I assume is a good sign.
I've also been building quite a bit; got a few mechs and space ships designed for Bricks Cascade, in addition to the many Bionicle MOCs I've made. (Seriously, my Bionicle stuff isn't the best, but there's enough that it can fill up some table space if we don't get a lot of Bionicle MOCs on display... but that's not gonna happen cause you're all going to bring / send stuff in, right.
) Another snag was hit today when I went to register some of my MOCs and realized I didn't remember my password for my Bricks Cascade account.
Luckily, I was able to email them and got it back... it would be nice if there was some sort of "recover password" feature, but I suppose people could also attempt to [i]NOT]/i] forget their passwords too...
Oh, and vehicle transportation for the convention has become a slight issue. I'll probably be bringing around 4 other people around, but my car only fits 5 and the trunk space isn't unlimited. (I thought I would have access to our Explorer, but now the rest of my family is planning to flee from the area come Lego convention season, and they're gonna take the big car with the dog, so I'm stuck with the smaller car.) There will be just enough seats for everybody, but since I'm planning to move a lot of MOCs around, trunk space might become an issue. Also, if my sister steals the car for her job, I might have no way to get to downtown Portland for any of the positions I'm applying for...
Also my dog ran out of control today on her walk, and I got reminded multiple times that I am A: Unemployed and B: Pursuing a degree that doesn't have a high demand in the job market (and isn't engineering.) And some other stuff made the day less-than-pleasant.
Also, I need to decided what Bionicle MOCs to register. I have 50, and that's too many, and some are clearly just filler MOCs. So I need to decide which ones to register to have them in the running for trophies and everything. (Granted, I read that trophies can be given to unregistered MOCs, but only registered MOCs are eligible for some secret "random winnings" and I must say I'm intrigued so I'll prolly register some of my best Rahi and let the rest just show up.)
On the upside, the weather broke an all-time high today, after all the rain we've been getting lately. Oh wait, I don't like hot days either... I miss the cool rain.
