Well, I'm a semester away from graduation, it would be stupid to just quit three credits away from a degree If I had realized when I got back from Japan that this would happen, I'd have cut my losses, but it's really too late now, haha.

I'm mostly wary of applying to be a barista or any sort of short-order cook/fast food employee, because I did that for my first two years at uni, in the school cafeteria, and I was completely and utterly miserable. I'm slightly happier at my current job, which is still dealing with customer service, but at least I don't come home reeking of fried chicken every night. Eventually, if it becomes a choice between unemployment and working at McDonalds, I'll take McDonalds, but right now, I'm making rent and I'm not starving, so I'll deal... God help me if I get sick or something, though...

I keep gazing longingly at craigslist ads for receptionists and such at spas, where I could dress up nicely and sit for most of the day, but most of my classes are during "working hours", so that's not really feasible. I browse cl a lot lately, actually, under jobs and gigs. So many of the opportunities for young women require photographs, though. I have no idea why.

"Aquariums are like science, art, and hypno-therapy, all rolled into one," I insisted.
"You're not putting a hundred gallon tank in the living room," my roommate replied.

My aquascape style tends towards 'tall in the back, short in the front, lots and lots of green and stuff. And maybe a rock somewhere...'
