Well, that was fun.

I tried making monster-shaped cookies for tonight's presentation, and that went fantastically wrong. Never trust a recipe that hasn't been recommended by someone. I am currently covered in flour, surrounded by poor-tasting cookies, and looking at the mess I have to clean up. I now admire and respect people who make perfectly shaped cookies that taste good too. Oh Martha. Have you sold your soul to the Devil?

Oh well. I'll just make brownies. Every man, woman, and child loves a brownie, right? :D

In other news, I'm soooo anxious. My monster presentation is today (in which I talk about human monsters: serial killers, rapists, necrophiles. Wonderful, no?) and I guess I'm nervous about that because I've never taken classes with this professor before and I don't want to fuck it up. But I think the real reasons why I'm about to puke all over the kitchen is that I have a meeting today with my (still? old?) boss from the magazine. I don't think it's a secret that I am hurt by her secrecy and cloak-and-dagger methods. But I guess what really crowned everything was the fact that everybody else got an important email and I got nothing. I just got a one-line e-mail.

I'm doing my best to keep my head up: I tell myself, why would I want to be involved in an environment like that? But the magazine is important to me, not because of the paycheck or the shiny job title, but because it represented the students. This sucks. At least I know that, if I'm let go, the reason is that "there is no money." It's not personal, it's "business."

I know that everybody is probably sick and tired of hearing me complain. But I have to express myself. >.>

Anyway. I still haven't heard from my possible future job and that has me antsy as well. I really want this job, it will take my mind off of the other job fiasco and it would help me later if I want to go into magazines/publishing. *crosses fingers*

Also, I'm planning on submitting to yet another conference. I consulted my advisor about it, we'll see how it goes. I'm not happy that it starts on the same day as my boyfriend's birthday, but, who knows if I'll even apply or get accepted! Whatever will happen, it will occur for a reason.

And now I have to go. I am totally covered in flour. Ugh!

Good luck with your job (or future expected job/s) and with your presentation. I'm sure you'll do great hun.

Yes I called her "hun". She's my friend.
