Get a Move On It

I need to start posting more often and with more frequency. I don't like that if you come to this blog and scroll down the page you can still see my January posts. Boring! Since I'm in the middle of a job search, I often feel like I have nothing to write about. But from now on I'm going to get creative and come up with more things to talk about on this blog even if it doesn't seem to me like I have anything to report on.

The Horror of a Broken Laptop

Things Gone Bad
Originally uploaded by ¶î®åt
My laptop decided that it hated me today and more than once I felt like throwing it against a wall or just straight into a trash can. My mom gracious allowed me to hijack her laptop, which helped, but I still felt a bit helpless without my own computer to work on. It's a bit sad how dependent I've become on my computer. I'm on it for too many hours of the day looking up news, checking my e-mail, going on facebook, watching movies, etc. I felt angry, overwhelmed, anxious and helpless throughout the day, and this made me feel pretty lame.

The computer drama started this morning when I turned it on so I could work on two job applications. I was able to check my e-mail and get online for a bit, but then the computer went into standby by itself. It continued to do this every time I would get it back on. Once it did it while I was typing in my password to login to my computer. Even now I feel like throwing my laptop. Let's just say, this really set me back and I got only one of the job applications partially finished. Here's to hoping I can get it fixed or at least diagnosed tomorrow (hopefully for free).

Fourteen Layer Cake

I want a piece of this cake! I'm going to attempt to make one soon, but in the meantime I'm going to stare at it and dream of when I'll have one myself. I found this on Bakerella's blog and I'm so glad I did.

I think this picture will overshadow my blog entry, but it's too funny to pass up and it fits with what I'm writing about.

Tonight, after I finished applying for two jobs, I went into my parents' room to get my dog. I told my mom I had circled a job to apply for but couldn't stand the thought of practicing in the area of toxic torts and asbestos litigation (sounds terrible, right?). My mom told me that this guy she works with said that I need to forget about criminal law and work in the area of water rights because that's where all the action is going to be soon. What?!? (hence the blog title :) Wow, water rights, exciting...not!!! And she kept saying it. I think she ordered me a book about the history of water in CA; I say I think because her coherency was waning (she was in bed and tired at the time). She then went on to tell me that this same guy told her that my former principal had a lumpy rug because she kept sweeping things under it. That's when I told her to have a good night. :) So, ladies and gentlemen, water rights is where you need to be!

Do you understand the picture now? Don't you say "What?" when you look at it? Well, if you don't, I do and that's why I chose it.
