Once More Unto The Breach

Wrote the 220 exam yesterday. I could quite honestly have been better prepared, but the test itself was ridiculous. 5 multiple choice questions ranging from all right to bad bad (as in, ambiguous and silly), 4 decent short-answer questions and one utter howler ("How is Quebec different from other provinces?" - I am not making this up.), and two essay questions that we had to finish in one double-sided, double-spaced page each. It almost makes me wish I hadn't skipped the class where we evaluated the prof. I'm pretty sure I did well enough to pass the course, and I'm not worried about any more than that - I stopped taking that class seriously long ago. Otherwise I probably wouldn't have slipped lines from The Badger Song between questions.

More good news: with the cheques signed, deposited, (and spent, heh), I suppose I can finally say we have new tenants - a pair of mid-twenties women who've been rommates since University days. They're not moving in fully until June, but apparently they felt like spending about $2-3k extra just to make sure they got to move in here. I can't chalk this up to my undeniable charm, before any of you do, because I didn't meet them during the walkthrough.

Even more good news: Year Zero took a while to work its charms, but it's growing on me. I think it was "Capital G" that did it, or "My Violent Heart". I don't think it's another "Fragile", but it's a pretty good album.

News that I'll just have to live with for now: Still no job. Looks like the yearly parade of uncertainty and self-loathing will proceed right on schedule. Le sigh.

I hate that feeling of uncertainty and self-loathing. It's terrible. Somehow I am avoiding it this year. I'm still not quite sure how I managed it... If you get really desperate I could always hook you up at Orange Julius... ;p

The job market is hopping, but not in the sorts of jobs I can do (frex, I'm not able to stay on my feet for the stretches retail/fast food usually requires), so I'm used to this sort of thing. I console myself with knowing that I'll be fine once I can work on a permanent basis. :)
