Motivation

We found a house. This is a bad thing--but purely because I don't yet have a job and therefore we can't possibly qualify for a mortgage. Thus, I am sitting here applying to what I suspect is a telemarketing-esque job in order to get something, anything, that will bring in a regular paycheck.

We went to the U of M Life Sciences Orchestra concert tonight, which was very nice--I'm not excited about classical music taped but live it's a very different thing. Afterwards we went to the after-party, where all of Eric's friends insisted he come back and play next semester and I ate sesame seed-covered pizza and pondered why I don't like crowds. I also applied for a bookstore job and a Best Buy job, and both used the exact same electronic questionnaire, one of the questions on which was, "Going somewhere with a big crowd is fun. Strongly Agree/Agree/Disagree/Strongly Disagree." Blechh. Stupid questionnaires. Interviews are much better. You have a much better idea of what they're looking for. How do I know what whatever consulting company came up with the survey told them to look for in the personality profiles they receive? I'll figure it out, though. I have a house to get.
