Hi LiveJournal!

Just feeling bad bad bad. Spent all of Thursday in bed. Lost and useless and disgusted with myself. Bleh.

I know a lot of you are sort of in the same boat as me when it comes to being sort of...closed off, and I wonder if anyone else struggles with the issue of people deciding to become your savior.

Can't sleep, keep thinking about trying to find a new job. I wish that I looked better on paper. I don't have a degree, and my experience is only in retail/customer service, which pretty much makes me qualified for - customer service. I'm pretty awesome in practice though, and I'm confident that I could learn to do just about anything. I hope this job with the library comes through (but I'm not super optimistic, as page positions are apparently averaging about 75 applicants per job) but really I just sort of want a quiet job, a desk job, where I can do my soul-crushing work in relative peace.

Anyway, right now I have an interview at the Space Needle and am filling out an application for Ross, which are basically the opposite of what I just said I wanted. Oh well. Space Needle might be fun, though a long commute for a retail job. Might be worth it only if I was getting 30+ hours every week.

Other than that, life is the same as ever, which is to say that my mind is constantly and completely absorbed in fiction, which I'm sure is extremely healthy.

Love to everyone! <3

I started my LiveJournal ten years ago today *hug* I am sorry I have abandoned you lately, my love. You had always been so good to me and helped me through many bad times.

I ended up deciding that I will go back to school next quarter. I went back and forth for a long time (so much so that they dropped me from my classes and I had to re-register), but eventually I decided that it would be the best thing for me. My course load is a little lighter, but that's really just because a lot of the classes I wanted were already full. I figure, maybe the job market will be better when I've graduated (:-/) and at the very least having some sort of degree will make me look a little better, I guess.

Still having some crazy anxiety problems. I started checking out therapists through my insurance, but apparently I have to call some hotline and they'll talk me through what benefits I have and blah, and it's like, Awesome, nothing like having to search out help for social anxiety by calling a stranger on the phone. Also, health insurance in general is fucking confusing and I can't make sense of it at all. It makes my head go "durrrr".

I'm considering using my OTHER blog for my random pop culture thoughts; I would do it here but I want to link it to my Facebook and there's just too much personal stuff in this. Can't believe I've had this thing for almost ten years. It's why I'll never be able to give it up. Too many memories.

GLBTQ FRIENDS

My final paper for my Diversity class is about how the GLBTQ community could be better served by their libraries, both school and public. I've done research and all that, but I thought it might be interesting to have some personal input as well.

So, if you feel like sharing, let me know if you have had any experiences with trying to find GLBTQ materials in a library. Do you feel that the group is well-represented, both in the collection itself and possibly with displays or bibliographies? Was there a specific section for GLBTQ titles? Did you feel comfortable asking the librarians for help finding these? Anything you give me could be useful.

Thanks so much!

Writer's Block: Family matters

How many brothers and sisters would you choose to have, and why?

I have three brothers and two sisters, which I wouldn't necessarily change, I just wish that I was closer in age to them. My youngest sibling is still eight years older than I am, and everyone was out of the house by the time I was nine or so. I feel like growing up with a larger family might have eliminated some of the problems I have now (although who knows, it may have caused entirely new ones).

Started off the work day with a pretty serious panic attack, but luckily we weren't open yet and I was able to get through it. I think it helped that I had to walk to the bank, because I was out in the fresh (albeit rainy) air and was concentrating on not being hit by one of the crazy-ass drivers on 1st Ave. Felt better the rest of the day, but starting to feel a little anxious again. Thinking I might go to the doc to get some anti-anxiety meds to take when I need to - but I'd probably have to have my mom keep 'em, because, well, I have a tendency to overdo it on the Xanax front. It just mellows me out so well!

Kitty has become very snuggly in the cold rainy weather. I love it. He's like my own furry hot water bottle. He's also started waking me up by licking my nose. He's smart to do something so adorable, otherwise waking me up at 5am would be an automatic suspension of bed rights and he'd have to find somewhere else to sleep.

Nothing else happening. Later LJ peeps.

Crazy-ass windstorm here last night, and there looks to be another one coming. God damn I love fall.
