All I want for Christmas is a job and the following books, which I have already bought for myself from my parents (I am going to be crafty in the new year):
Per their request, I began buying my own presents when I started college and was less able to drop hints as to my Christmas wishes. If my parents didn’t have any help, I would probably be getting a miscellaneous collection of 75% off casual summer items from my mom, and a book on personal finance from my dad.
He gave me this book at Thanksgiving to aid my plan to buy a house once I have a job. It also came with a DVD. He swears it is a great book, although obviously, I have my hesitations.
So I’ve got my books, now I just need a job! Easy. Pie. Cake. Shit, I hate that I am still looking for a job and also that this morning I did an assessment for a teller position and passed but was told that there aren’t actually any positions currently available.
Then I made borscht and took a nap. Now I am listening to popular music videos on Youtube, because I am going through a phase.
While scanning the popular video section, I noticed that the video of Bush getting a pair of shoes thrown at him appeared many times and is by far the most watched video. Yesterday I watched a CNN reporter say that she has watched the video over and over and still can’t help but laugh. I have disliked Bush for six years and wanted to throw a shoe or two myself, but really? It’s not funny. It is sad that that is the gut reaction rather than sadness for Iraqi victims’ families, or, hey, even upset that our President was publicly humiliated.
Well, here is something sad in, I think, a better way:
It is okay to laugh.
