So, I got the Graphic Design internship at the Traverse Area District Library. I start tomorrow and am super excited about that. Then I heard from the school about the graduate assistantship. They said that the job is mine if I want it, so I am stoked about that too. Now the only question is “do I want to take the position?” I am not sure. I thought that this was what I wanted but now I am not so sure. I kind of want it but it requires me to move to Nebraska. I don’t know what to do…
Not sure why my life has to suck. Sometimes I wish I could just hide away. I feel like crying…
I am so excited that I got my picture signed by Micky Dolenz in the mail today. So happy. Got to get a frame tomorrow. Made my day. It has my name on it, which is even cooler. Love it.
In an interview after the first game of the doubleheader today a reporter asked if Leyland was concerned about Raburn and Inge not hitting or struggling, believe it or not Leyland responded by saying that Boesch was also struggling. Um ok, I will give you that Boesch is struggling but struggling for Boesch is a .240 batting average. Not great but respectable for the start if the start week of the season. The only problem is that Raburn’s batting average at the start of the first game today was a miserable .074 and Inge wasn’t much better with a mighty .077. There really is no comparison. I am not sure what Leyland sees in Inge and Raburn. It is going to be real difficult to win games with two starters who’s batting averages have yet to break the .080 barrier. And people wonder why we aren’t scoring as many runs as we were the first two weeks. That combined with terrible bullpen issues with Schlereth and losing Fister to the DL. Fortunately, one issue has been corrected with Dombrowski sending Schlereth packing to Toledo, but I am not sure if the guy that they brought up is any good or not. Can’t remember his name right now. Hope we win the second game tonight, especially with the great performance by Verlander. We are leading right now 3-1. We will see. It would be nice to split the series 2-2, we could do it but need to win this game and the game tomorrow. It would be a great way to build some confidence.
Really? Daniel Schlereth? He is quite possibly the worst pitcher ever. The tigers need to get rid of him right away. I can’t stand to even look at him anymore. Unbelievable.
I am still working out all the details but I need to get healthy and I really think that this is the way to go. Stuff has been crazy and i have been sick for a long time. I need to get this under control so I can move on with my life.
First, i would like to say that my banner was never entered into the Spring banner contest. I turned it in a week ahead of time, but for some reason they never gave it to the committee and won’t email me back. Not sure what is up with that. She is the information officer. Anyway, I am over it and have moved on to bigger and better things. I am entering a contest to get an internship from a famous entertainment advertising agency. They create movie posters and other advertisements for tv and print too. I have to create a movie poster for a ficticious movie. I already have created three that I think are pretty good, but I have another couple of weeks, so I am going to take that time to mess with what I already have and create something else that is cool. Wish me luck and I will post my posters after the contest is over.
My professor just told us that we have to write another paper. So now I have 3 left for that class. This is completely ridiculous. I seriously have to write 4 papers about this crappy movie. How can you write 4 papers and not repeat yourself over and over again. You can’t. I got a stupid 23 out of 25 even though I had 7 responses instead of the 4 required. His scoring is so random. I really hate this class. I can’t wait until I am done with it in a few weeks. I am probably going to get my first “b” from this class. Trust me the evaluation is going to be harsh too. I don’t think that this class makes any sense at all for a degree in education. We haven’t even talked about education really. It is kind of dumb. Sorry needed to vent.
So I applied for a graduate assistantship at UNK for fall. I think that I am going to apply for another too. Just in case. I have been applying for jobs but haven’t heard anything yet really, so I thought why not? I am not getting anything here so why not try? It is at least plan in case I can not find a full-time job this summer. I would rather get a job where I can make some actual money, but whatever.
I have been so sick this week. I mean really sick. It was the worst cold that I have ever had. I couldn’t talk for 2 days. Anyway, I am starting to feel a little better so that is good.
That things were so sucky that they couldn’t get better, something cool happens. I am getting a signed photo from Micky Dolenz. I am so excited. I am going to frame it and hang it on my wall. I am such a huge Monkees fan and he is my favorite Monkee. It really made my day to know that I was going to be getting that. I am actually kind of happy for once.
When is my life going to get easier. I am still getting vertigo and sinus pain. It has been about 2 years now that I have been dealing with this. Really can’t keep going on like this. I really need a job with health benefits so I can go to an ear, nose, and throat doctor. I am looking to send apps for jobs in other states soon and would really like to lose a few pounds first. Really need to get my act together here…
So, at this point I am the only person providing content at the online magazine that I was writing about earlier. I actually don’t have a problem with that. I kind of like it. I really need the practice and the experience. It is a lot of fun sometimes to be the only one. I am going to be looking for a job out-of-state soon and need to build up my resume. I think I may volunteer somewhere this summer to get some experience too. I will be in Mount Pleasant and Alma a lot this summer so volunteering somewhere near there would be great. I applied for an editorial internship for the summer too. Doesn’t mean that I am going to get it, but you never know and it would be good experience too.
update: I just went onto the website that I write for and the editor changed one of my articles. The first line anyway, not a big deal usually but the stuff she added doesn’t go with the artcle. What I had was fine. If you want to add stuff to my work then at least have it make sense with the rest of the article. This is just plain weird. It says something opposite of what my article is saying. Ridiculous.
