I’m currently sitting under the heater while Mamoru agonizes over a trip to take. He’s been figuring for the last three hours and hasn’t made a decision yet. I told him “Look dude, I don’t have a job, I can’t literally go whenever and wherever” (freelance work aside). He just asked me about my availability on yet another day. Sigh.
In other news I canceled a job interview I had on Monday. It was for a full time job, and it was over an hour away. That’s not a terribly long commute but I decided to only search for part time jobs at the moment since I’m getting enough freelance and on-call work. The freelance work I can’t put on my resume, but I can add the on-call work if need be (provided I work more than two days there).
What is the deal with Meetups here? They are all language exchange, and I don’t want to go to a language exchange Meetup. But let me tell you why. During a language Meetup the pressure is on to speak in a foreign language (for others that may be English, for me it’s Japanese). I feel like this takes a lot of the fun out of the event, and it’s not a very relaxing atmosphere (especially for someone with anxiety). In my opinion, this is not a good way to meet people. I want food Meetups, drink Meetups (not singles ones obviously), just hang out and chill Meetups. Where are those? I don’t think I’m being too particular. How the crap am I supposed to meet people?
In other unrelated news, I am horny as hell, and the CM down there looks super fertile so shit. I can’t do anything about this with Mamoru since we’re not trying at the moment. I must wait until Monday, and then I can take care of myself in the morning. Then I’m meeting a friend for lunch and then I have to meet with Demande. And then I have to go home and make Valentine’s chocolates for Mamoru. I’ll be happy when this stupid holiday is over. I’m supposed to get him a present (no outdoing tickets to Dinseyland last year), but he has expensive tastes and I wouldn’t even know where to start on my limited budget. I’m hoping the homemade chocolate bars, homemade donuts, a small silly gift, and heartfelt card will be enough. Sigh. Stupid Hallmark holidays.
