more changes

Wassup internet?

Since I quit my PhD (actually, I still haven't handed the forms in, but this is more of an admin issue) I have made two more changes:

* Last Sunday I moved out! weee! Now I live with a very nice Elvis Costello look alike NEXT DOOR TO A SEX SHOP! scandalous. My room is basically an ikea advertisement it has high ceilings and it is quite large so I am happy. My credit card is not so happy. The other day we microwaved mars bars and watched the bold and the beautiful. This is pretty close to domestic bliss (IF I HAD MY PUPPY, soooooo sad).

* I got a job doing test administration for an organisational psychology company. Basically when candidates apply for jobs with big companies they contract us to do the ability/personality testing. So my job is to administer the tests and score them. So far I am really enjoying it.

A few nights ago I saw 500 days of Summer and it scared me how much I related to both characters! I think if you haven't experienced the unrequited love deal you are quite lucky. I can also relate to summer's feelings about sparks and not knowing blah blah blah relationships are so complicated.

Anyway, I really loved this film and it has a beautiful soundtrack. Also, Zooey has been my girl crush for quite some time now. She is annoyingly perfect, she is in a sweet band and I want everything she ever wears. The end of the movie was pretty lame though - her name is autumn? seriously. Here are some cartoons which essentially sum up the entire movie.

In other news:

* I have finally sorted out southbound accommodation thanks to the lovely dj lm so that is one less thing to worry about.

* My skin appears to be allergic to moving/life. ughhhh.

* I really miss my dog

* I really hate group assignments and weekend classes.

* I am not adjusting to a 'living out of home' budget

* I want either a diana mini or a 35mm Holga - opinions?
Sorry if I have been a bad blog/real life friend lately, I am back now :)

Wow lovelovelove your blog!

"...Elvis Costello look alike NEXT DOOR TO A SEX SHOP" My dream!

And it's so true about 500 Days of Summer. I think that's why so many people relate to it, most people have been on both sides of that story.

And Zooey...ah Zooey. She's so perfect!

Congratulations on moving out & the job that's awesome!! I wish I could. Eeek but yeah I don't think my credit card would be too happy.

I've heard great things about 500 days of Summer. Unrequited love? Okay I'm a victim of that I might have to see it now. =)

I vote the Holga {but mainly because I want one myself!}... but I like that you can shoot half-frames on the Diana mini. So, really, I have not been helpful.

Congratulations on your new apartment and job!

well, some things are going super for you, and that is great. moving and getting a new job are such big adjustments. my skin (and stomach and BRAIN) seem to freak more and more with big life changes, and i need to figure out how to just chill.

enough about me!

hang in there, and i hope everything falls into place soon, and in a good way. :)
