After reading somebody else's "life update" on facebook I thought I'd do one too, but post it on LJ where everybody and their mom can't read it, not because it's anything that juicy, but because I don't need to overshare with everyone on my friends list. It probably won't be that long, because truthbetold my life is staggeringly uneventful right now.

As most people know by now, I finished school in December and have been looking for a job ever since. Of course it's pretty hopeless right now, my timing couldn't have been worse. I've applied to umpteen places, and so far have gotten a few rejection emails (which I think are grossly unnecessary), and have had one interview at a small environmental company at Paine Field, which I was SO excited about. It was only like a 5 person company and the office looked over the runway. PLUS one of their main functions was to excavate sights before construction begins...HELLO! ANTHROPOLOGY! However, the interview was 2 1/2 weeks ago and I've heard nothing since, so needless to say, I didn't get the job. Sigh.

Even though I liked what I majored in in college and (for the most part) liked school okay, sometimes I wish I would have studied something more specific that would lead me towards a certain career field. I got a good enough education, but since none of the jobs I will ever hold will probably require me to study a chimpanzee skull or dissect a archaeological site, it will be more about the general education than actual specifics. Which is okay I guess. And would have been more okay in a better job market. I could just never get into studying business or finance or anything like that. I wish I could, but I would hate it.

I've always been a little jealous of those people who always knew exactly what the wanted to do and knew exactly how to get there. But I've never thought of myself as really career-oriented. I want to have a career and everything, but I don't want one that's going to take over my life. And I don't need to make a ton of money. I just want enough to be able to live in Seattle and do some traveling. If I didn't need to, I'd rather not even own a car. I've never really thought of myself as really family-oriented either. I can't see myself doing that right now. I might feel different in a few years, who knows. What I really want is to be in a comfortable rut. I don't like this intermission stuff, not knowing whats next.

I suppose I really am lucky because even though I can't get a job at the moment, I don't really have a lot to worry about. I live at home so have no rent, don't really have many expenses and have plenty of money in the bank to sustain me for a great while. It's just kind of hard being stuck, I feel like everybody else is doing things and I'm just sitting around...but I guess that will change eventually.


Enough of that. Elsewhere in my life, I have become unhealthily (word?) obsessed with American Idol this year, mostly with Adam Lambert. I've reverted to my middle school teeny bopper ways, but I can't help it. Hes AMAZING. Not only is he incredibly talented but HELLO Mr. Sexypants. Normally I'm not so into the eyeliner and stuff on a dude but he can pull it off, oh can he ever. Yeah, he's about the hottest man I've ever seen....sigh. *see icon* I'd totally have his babies....if he weren't gay of course. damn.

Tuesdays are the best days of the week right now. I don't what I'm going to do with myself when it's over. Youtube videos and mp3s must be enough to sustain me and my crazy stalker self.
