You know how I mentioned that I was going to check up on a job opportunity today? Well, apparently that didn't happen. This opportunity was for a position as a video game tester. Yes, you read that right, video game tester. Basically, the dream job for any gamer. Wanting to get in on this action, my friend and I called to inquire about it. Apparently, they want experienced testers who have a decent resume. That's bad because I've, as of yet, haven't held such a position before. -_- I'll just hope that my minor experience beta testing for RagnarokOnline is sufficient to land me the job. The lady said that I can send her my resume and she'll forward it onto the agency she's contracting for (which, I still don't have the name to ^_^;). Here's to hoping that I can land that job. And lets hope that if I do land it, it can be for something like Sega. They're located in this area. ^_^

Job hunting! Yes, I said I'd look for a job and I was serious. Unfortunately for me, most places right now are either not hiring or have run out of applications. -_- Why do I have to get out so late that everyone else has already gotten a chance to apply before me? I suppose I could have gone looking before I got out of school, but I didn't think of it at the time, so nyeh. Anyway, I went around with my friend Eric and we applied to several places. First, I applied at Target (for those in San Jose, that's the one on Capitol). Apparently I have to wait for them to perform a background check before I can even be considered for a position. O_o; Boy, are they thorough. Assuming I get the job, I'll even have to get a drug test. O_o;; Target has some extreme employment policies. Directly after that, we walked over to Toys 'R Us, which is in the same shopping center. Come on, who wouldn't like to work in a toy store? XD You'd be surrounded by toys all day. Sounds like a pretty sweet job if you ask me. Definately better than a lot of stuff out there. I'm really hoping they call me back. ^_^ Then we hit up Hollywood Video and Blockbuster. Unfortunately for us, they weren't even accepting applications. -_- Then to the mall! There, I couldn't apply anywhere because every place ran out of applications. ;_; I really wanted to apply at Gamestop and kinda wanted to apply at Media Play. I'm fairly certain that I have sufficient knowledge to fulfill those positions. Oh well.... I guess I'll just have to wait around and try to think of new places to apply. My friend Allan says that he has a job opportunity for us, so lets see how that's going to turn out. We're going to look into it tomorrow. ^_^

I moved rocks today. ^_^;; My parents have a big pile of white, I'm assuming quartz, rock out back. It's been sitting there for a good two years because we just didn't know what to do with it. Well, wanting to get it out of the way, my parents decided to put it at the foot of two of the trees on the other side of the backyard. Being that I'm a young and able young person, they elected me to help out. -_- Well, it wasn't too bad, but manual labor is never good. ^_^ Took maybe an hour or two, but I did it. Doesn't look half bad either. The parents are happy, so I guess that's what counts.

After that, play time! I went out and had some general hang out time with friends. Some events: had hairclips put in my hair, helped people with math, and played SCII. Not a horrible way to spend a summer day. It was hot though. X_x We were, like, boiling out there. I hear that it went up to 102 degrees out there. X_x I'm glad my car has good AC. Had to run to it occasionally to get all cooler-like. I hear that tomorrow's going to be just as bad if not worse. X_x I'm afraid....

And finals be over! Yes, finally some peace and freedom. *sigh of relief*

About the finals themselves... they were... alright.... I can't say that I performed stellarly on them, but I do believe that I did adequately. Besides, I tried my best, so I really can't ask for more now, can I? I had them all today in a nice long block: 7:00-9:00 was calc, 9:15-11:15 was chem, and 11:30-1:30 was philosophy. Aw man, you don't know how bad it is taking your calc and chem finals so early in the morning. My head hurted. ;_; Maybe that had to do with the fact that I didn't get in a decent breakfast, but we'll overlook that minor detail right now. ^_^; Anyway, all has been said and done. Now's my summer. I shall enjoy it. XD I'll have to go back to school in six days though. -_-;; At least I got an easy schedule for the summer. I'll just have to make the best of my few days of freedom freedom.

This last weekend was Fanime: one of the most important events of the year for me. Unfortunately, because of the finals, I didn't get to go to much of it. ;_; I was hoping to get in on Saturday for a good number of hours, but that didn't happen because of the parents. I only went for a few hours on Friday. Didn't do much in that time though. It was essentially only enough time for me to run around the dealers room and buy a couple of things; which is exactly what I did. I picked up a Nako figure (the new one that was released maybe two months ago) and a One Piece necklace with the symbol for the Straw Hat Pirates and the name "Monkey D Luffy" written below it. And that's it. There's really nothing else to say because I didn't get to go to anything else. Why did it have to be the weekend directly before my finals!? ;_;

Now that the summer's here, I'm considering how I'm going to spend my time. I've already kinda decided to try to find a job. My spending habits have become somewhat extravogent. I'm buying too many games. ^_^;; BTW, I just picked up Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven. ^_^; So yeah, with that in mind, I'm faced with two options: 1. get a job or 2. cut back on my game buying. I'm sure you can see, I'm more or less left with option one because, like I'm going to cut back on my game buying. XD As for how to spend my free time.... I know I'll actually be spending a lot of that playing games I haven't completed. Let me tell you, that would be a lot of games. ^_^; But aside from that, I think I shall make an effort to finally get TsuNU and NakoNU up. The main hurdle there would probably be NakoNU. The collective will be easy enough to get up, but I need to launch it with at least one site and the site I have in mind requires a good deal of information; some of which require some reading and/or research to get completely accurate. Gwar....
