I was looking for some account creation code for LiveJournal and came across an entry in this site that bashed LiveJournal. And I agreed with what was said. Of course I only wanted to join LiveJournal to add it to my Elfwood account. But this will suffice. I don’t put money into websites so I don’t know why people would expect me to put money into online journals. Paying people to read my thoughts. It should be the other way around.
<p>Well not much has been going on for me. I’m supposed to do an art trade with an artist from Elfwood, of course she got hers done a few days ago and I’m still in the stages of rough sketches. I should have scanned some pictures two days ago, but apparently I didn’t or I wouldn’t have used the words ‘should gave’.</p> <p>I was expected to paint another mural on my high school’s hallways. I finished one a week after I graduated. And I was expected to finish another girl’s mural. I didn’t want to but sometimes I can’t say no to immortalize my work in the very place I loathed for so long.</p> <p>I started a resume today. It killed me. You don’t realize how unmulti-talented you are until you try to sell yourself. I don’t have any recorded experience of work. Ok. I worked one day and didn’t get paid. But that hardly counts. I don’t understand the point of resumes until you actually have experience in the field. If I put mine in the pile of applicants, the employers for a grocery/packing store will stare at my, “Skills: Drawing, painting with acrylics, limited knowledge in <span class="caps">HTML</span>, <span class="caps">CSS</span>, and <span class="caps">LPC</span>.” and laugh their ass off at my forever condemned life of unemployment. This sucks. And if they didn’t laugh at that my, “Interests: Working hard to collect some money.” probably will sink in. I’ve done a resume before, but it’s for an art-related job, not a grocery/packing/delivery store. The world of employment is against me. I’ve been wanting to get a job for years, really, but I’m the kind of person that waits for things to come my way. And no job has come my way. So I’m finally trying to get one and my parent’s don’t encourage me whatsoever. I thought they’d want me to work, they said it themselves, but when I asked for a little advice they said, “Look on the internet.” What the hell. Am I supposed to Ask Jeeves?</p> <p>This is not a good start for my first entry.</p>
