Anybody else into these? : o

FSTs, or fan soundtracks, are basically just fancy dork names for mix tapes lmao. Base it around a series, a character, a pairing, whatevs. Generally people include explanations/writeups along with them as well to prove that some amount of thought has been put into it so they aren't just randomly throwing songs together going YEAH TOTALLY, THIS IS TOTALLY ABOUT THIS. There's some good shit out there. There's also some people with seriously questionable music taste, but there's some good shit out there too.

I've also made a few myself and haven't ever posted them here dohohohoho. Two Seacats, one Yume Nikki.

And I'm bored as hell atm so LOL SHARING TIME.

SO. Anime Matsuri is in less than a month. HAHAHAHAHAHA I AM SO NOT READY FFFFFFFFFFFF. </what i say before every god damn con>

Those expecting to see me there......:C
It's over spring break weekend. Because I work in Children's Zoo instead of Birds, spring break actually matters to our department. So that weekend is officially blacklisted on our calendar and no staff members are allowed to take a vacation during that time. Doesn't matter if you used to work for another department and had already made plans for that time: if you did, you can go fuck yourself! 8D So yeaaahhhh. I'll only be there Friday and Saturday evenings since I'll be at work all day. Iiiiiiii am not a fan of my new job. :T ololololol


A month after that though is ~SAKURACON~ IN SEATTLE
WHICH I DID GET TIME OFF FOR
SO FUCK YEAR
So yeah that'll be ballin'. :>


And after THAAAAAAAAAAAT and probably my last con for the year hurrrr since I have like no vacation time since its just my first year working full time....
~A-KON~ WE SHALL RETURN WOOHOO
Just paid for the table. lululinart, I, and another buddy of ours all camped the reg page to try and get a table and somehow....only I made it onto the official list and not the waitlist. ._. All those years of flipping my shit over Sakuracon have apparently paid off. That and using Google Chrome formcomplete hurr hurr hurr
But yeah, we'll only have one table there. Which will suck balls, but I'm sure we'll find a way to make do. Last time we pulled off a pretty neat trick with pulling our table back and adding shelves in front, so I'm sure we can find...some way....oh god this shit is gonna be so crowded lmfao




ALSO HEY EVERYBODY POKEMON BLACK/WHITE COMES OUT IN LIKE A WEEK
WHO ELSE IS SHITTING THEMSELVES IN ANTICIPATION

So you know how I raised a bunch of baby flamingos at work last summer? And how I had to syringe-feed them several times a day? APPARENTLY THAT WAS ALL JUST PRACTICE, LOL

NnyF and I adopted a kitten a week ago! We named her Dahlia. <3 She came from the SPCA. And....apparently this is a bad idea and I had no idea. :T I'm all for the SPCA and I love what they do, but after talking to other people that have adopted from there, I've learned that what's happening to Dahlia is...normal. Which is not cool. Animals shouldn't have to go through this. : (and I shouldn't have to pay several hundred bucks to help her get through this, but thank god I love her and have an emergency fund I had started to save up just in time for this shit)

Copied from my LJ and updated:
The second night Dahlia stayed with us, she had a ton of personality and was playing all over the bed and chasing our feet and actually spent the entire night curled up sleeping with (read: on the faces of) NnyF and I. She also spent the whole night sneezing.

The next day, all that personality disappeared. She was quiet, she was still sneezing, and she didn't wander around and explore as much. The day after that - Saturday - my mother stopped by the apartment (because according to Murphy's Law, I inevitably had to work extra 12 hour shifts two days in a row as this happened and couldn't get her to the vet on my own) and picked Dahlia up to take her to the nearby vet hospital. Turns out she had picked up an upper respiratory infection at the shelter. They gave her a shot and sent her home with Clavamox, an antibiotic, and told us to do a follow-up at our own vet Monday.

Over the next two days, her random bursts of sneezing morphed into full-blown sneezing and coughing fits. She also ate very little and only produced a couple of fecals. I opted to take her to our old family vet instead of trying a new one, and the vet said she was still doing okay enough to not worry too much. He gave her a B-vitamin shot just to pep her up a bit and told me a couple warnings to watch out for, but barring that he said she should be better soon.


Except I had to take her back in the next day, Tuesday, because she got worse. She didn't eat anything for at least 24 hours (which was one of the things I was warned about), her sneezing was worse, her eyes were watering, and she had started drooling and foaming at the mouth during her sneezing fits. Turns out she had broken a fever on top of all this as well. The vet gave her a shot to control the fever and to help with the achiness she was most likely feeling as well as some subcutaneous fluids to stave off any potential dehydration. New antibiotics were ordered (chicken flavor!) and we were instructed to check back in the next couple days to see when the pharmacy had them ready.

Wednesday, we were back at the vet again. She had now not eaten for 48+ hours. She now weighed a paltry 3.4lbs, down from the 4lbs she weighed when we first brought her home. We were instructed to stop giving her the Clavamox and to hold off on medicating her until the new stuff came in, since Clavamox has been known to suppress an appetite. She got more fluids and was given a cortisone shot to help her feel better as well. We were also taught how to force-feed her with a syringe.



Needless to say, she hates pretty much everything we're doing to her. It's funny in a monstrously pathetic way to feed her though - it really is just like feeding a fussy baby flamingo, just with more teeth, less appetite, and more of a desire to murder me. So lately she's just been curled up in a ball on the bed, in her box, or on NnyF's laptop just sneezing, drooling, meowing pitifully, and yet still purring immediately after we start petting her. Even after all this miserable shit we've done to her, she's still happy to see us. ;~;



Soooo yeah. I've got cons coming up, but I just can't bring myself to sew because every free moment I have I'm either sitting in the bathroom with a hot shower running to pretend-nebulize my kitten or just petting her and telling her it'll be okay soon. It's pretty hrgfghsdgf.

I have not updated here in aaaaaaaages. herpderp

-I guess first things first...I'm not a birdkeeper anymore :C BUT I am finally an official zookeeper instead of being the Bird dept's prairie chicken bitch! I got hired on in mid-December by the Children's Zoo after they initially snubbed me olololol. So, my weekends now suck, my hours kind of suck, my animals are not nearly as cool, but my paycheck is almost double what it was before hreagdfgdfg thank god I can afford RENT NOW OMFG. It's....eh. It's a HUGE adjustment, between working with way, way, way fewer animals, working with way DIFFERENT animals, training animals as opposed to giving them as little socialization as possible, and..having way shittier bosses :T but yeah. It's only been a month, I'm...sure I'll get used to it. And if not, the CZ curator told the Bird curator she wasn't allowed to take me back to her department after a minimum of a year, so worst comes to worst? BAIL LIKE THE FIST OF THE NORTH STAR ON DAY 365 ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ZOO. XD

-Sakuracon is officially a go, since I seem to have never mentioned that here lmfao. Table is paid for, vacation time has been alotted for, so furiousrockets and I are gonna be all over that shit. MO MONEY MO PROBLEMS? LETS TEST THAT THEORY, BITCH aaaaaaaaaaafter i buy plane tickets hahahskgjdfgsfg fucckkkk

-I have absolutely no idea what the fuck I'm gonna do for cosplay, though. :T I'm taking Beatrice for sure, but....I don't think I'm gonna have any other costumes planned. D: Guess I could always loli it up but yeah. :T I do have plans for some photos I want to take with Beato though. Eeeeeeeeeespecially since I haven't even freaking posted completed photos of Sakutarou yet.
-SPEAKING OF WHICH
-WE'RE EATING HAMBURGER HELPER FOR DINNER
-AND I'M HOLDING SAKUTAROU

aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh

i have an apartment aaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

~( ̄∇ ̄~)


I still don't have a key, though. We went to pay the first month's rent and get the key, and sort of noticed as the landlady was leaving that UH HEY YOU GAVE US THE WRONG KEY, THIS ONE DOESN'T WORK. Turns out they actually *lost* the key to this apartment and have to totally replace the lock on the door before they can give me a key. So they um. Took the lock out. And haven't put one back in.

DERP DERP YOU GUYS

skjfhgskdjfh i want to move in so badddddddddd but i can't because FFS THERE IS A HOLE IN MY DOOR WHERE THE LOCK SHOULD BE. OBVIOUS MUCH.

Ultimate hope is that I'll be moved in sometime this week. hnnnnnngh.


.....This means I'll have spotty internet access, of course. Dunno when I'll be able to get interbutts in the apartment, and even if I'm still living at my parents' place I'll be in and out constantly working on moving shit around so I won't have much time to be on here.




OH FUCK I JUST POURED SPRITE ALL OVER MY KEYBOARD

Bad news first. Satoshi Kon is dead.


:C.






And in good news that doesn't feel so good anymore after hearing that, I put a deposit down on an apartment yesterday and I'm in a prime spot to get a real full-time zookeeper position in the next couple of weeks. Children's Zoo (where I worked for 4 years as a teen volunteer) has an opening for a position as Naturalist in their swap shop. I asked about getting that job, but they said no, my chances were slim - I've never worked for Fish & Wildlife or had any work or experience even remotely resembling the job of a naturalist. Sadface until they said they didn't want me to work there in the first place; they're trying to move a CZ keeper into that job so they can have space for me.

So, brb panicked writing of a last-second resume and cover letter aaaaaahhhhhhh


omfg and i just got a call from my future landlady halfway through writing that, we're meeting her friday to get the key to the apartment and drop off the first month's rent aaahhhhhhhhhh

Shitty day at work with (expected) bad news from the boss and an overpowering urge to break the face of a certain coworker have left me grumpy and....looking up tattoo parlors near me?


WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN


I'm still sad I can't get what I want as scarification. :C It'd look best as a scar, but FFFFFFNO BAD IDEA. I want a feather behind my left shoulder. Too much curvy detailing + extremely inconvenient position + not that great pain tolerance + I AM PALE AND DON'T REALLY SCAR THAT EASILY means haha oh wow bad bad idea.


'Course, issue number one to get over is that I don't even know what I want the feather to look like in the first place. I just know I want a feather and I want it there.



derp



btw NnyF and I are SO TOTALLY GOING TO SEE GORILLAZ PLASTIC BEACH LIVE IN OCTOBER YEAHHHHHHHHHHH WHO GOT TICKETS I GOT TICKETS WHOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Sssssoooooo talked to Hannah yesterday after getting back from NYC. Told her I really needed to hear if I had a job or not because seriously I need to start getting those paychecks /now/ if I want to persuade the apartment owners I can live there/afford to live there. And that if they don't have a job for me it'd be nice to hear now so I can go ahead and start throwing applications elsewhere.

Got a nice big apologetic "well good luck on those applications kiddo."




It's not like I'd been relying on getting that job for four months now or anything :







A lot of people at work were really nice and helpful about it, though. A couple people immediately popped on the computer to check their old jobs to see if there were any animal positions available for me - none of them did, but at least they tried. Did see there was an opening for an elephant keeper here at the Houston Zoo though, and someone said they really liked people that had zoo experience but not any elephant experience because they liked training people from the ground up - so that'd be perfect, right? Asked Hannah who the curator was and how I could reach them to try and apply, and she gave me a name riiiight before mentioning that the listing might just be accidentally left up because they've finished interviewing everyone for the position already. Cue me hiding in the brooder room pretending to do dishes and certainly not be sitting under the desk crying.

Learned later in the day that someone from our department did in fact apply and get interviewed. And it's the chick that used to work in elephants before so she has lots of experience and would be a great person to hire. Right? Right? ....so what if she stopped working there because she had a brain tumor and needed to move to an easier section where it's less of a hassle when she misses 75% of her work days because she feels too bad to get out of bed in the morning? God fucking dammit I seriously hope Hannah doesn't mention that fact to the Elephants curator because if she gets rehired there I'll finally have my fucking job opening.



So my options now are to try and scrounge up a job at some random place that's full-time and pays higher than minimum wage (harr harr good luck miss college dropout) or keep on with the minimum-wage internship as long as I can/until a full-time keeper position opens up and just tack on a part-time job somewhere else and just work 50-, 60-hour weeks until shit's better.

Seriously tired of all this stress and worrying.
