The only thing about vidding that I hate? Compulsive habits.

The urge to smoke. Here I am trying to vid while cutting back on my smoking (have been since I moved here), but I plan to completely quit once this carton is gone. Anyway it's driving me nuts to have a cig hanging out of my mouth.

Thank god I can't smoke in the house. Well considering how badly I'm jonsing right now that's sort of not a good thing.

That's a good'un.

After eating lunch at some deli, I popped outside to smoke half a cig before we go onto our appointments. This little asshat of a man says 'you see the sign, don't you?' I turn around and look at it already knowing that it says 'please don't smoke on the property'. I'm at the edge of the driveway. And I turn back to him and say that I do see it and take another hit off my smoke. He then tells me 'I'll just throw peanuts at you until you stop.' I keep smoking and he starts throwing fucking peanuts. I hit them back at him. His buddy is hiding his eyes and trying not to laugh. I finish my cigarette and walk by him and say 'you have a nice day at being a complete asshole'.

avenuepotter was shocked at the guy's rudeness. I'm not. But it wasn't like I was anywhere really near the guy and I wasn't disobeying the sign. So fuck 'em.

Now off for the interviews.

Yippee!

Guy in student services hooked me up by really fixing up my resume and pointed out something to me I never knew. All these resumes I've sent out over the last two years were first of all TOO LONG (four page resumes it seems are a no no) and secondly NEVER send them as an attachment they automatically get dumped majority of the time for the same reasons we dump spam.

*facepalm*

You'd think that at least one of those employment classes I've taken over the years would have frelling mentioned that!

Afterward I took my placement test, I do have to take basic math again which I will admit I don't mind because I do need a refresher on some of it. But the great news is that I did really well on the writing and will automatically go into the writing composition class. :D It's so funny about the subject for the writing, I had to take either the pro or con side of a year-round school schedule... which is something mom and I have talked about numerous times because of the kids. So the kids actually helped me out some today. *bg*

Now the only thing I gotta do is wait on my packet in the mail with the details for orientation and getting my student ID. And start plunking out more resumes!
