Hey kids and cats of past and present.

I think it's about time ratings communities made a massive comeback on LJ, WHATDAYASAY? Until this damn community gets up again, here I am, pimping this cool one:

Um, are any of the other mods still alive? If no one replies by, say, Saturday, I'll go about my business stamping the poor sods who haven't been stamped into/out of this fine cadaverous community. If someone else wants to perk up, that'd be okay too. I just want to see where I stand. . .

Damn_uncool, you say? Without getting teenage-emo on you, I'll move to the second most damn_uncool thing in my life right now: the fact that I'm reading The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane for my English class. Actually, English class in general. Am I the only person who thinks that the point of teaching literature is to explore your own interpretations of a book. . .? In my class, our teacher dictates a very narrow way for us to construe the book. If we give a reasonable interpretation of the book that isn't what's in the teacher's handbook, it's "wrong." Not to mention that Stephen Crane is as boring as fuck.

damn_uncool, eh? [26 Sep 2005|11:20am]

The most recent damn_uncool moment I can think of starts out deceptively cool: I'd been working on a bed of nails, and I needed to get a plywood board from the hardware store. This store is a few blocks from where I live, and because I only needed something that was about 3'x4', I figured I could carry it back. (Academic, really, since I don't own anything I might have carried it *with.*)

Now, it turned out the smallest board they had was 4'x4', and they charged extra for cutting. Well, no problem! I thought, I'm strong like Spiderman, I can easily carry this home! Foolish self-confidence on my behalf... for starters, it should be mentioned I'm a small person, and my arms barely fit around that thing, even when I held it at an angle. Add to that the fact that it was a hot day. Add to that the fact that I am much more of a weak, frail creature then I ever allow myself to realize. Halfway home I was a gasping, struggling human puddle.

Now, say what you will about apathetic New Yorkers, no less than three strapping young men offered to help me carry it the rest of the way. Unfortunately, I have a stubborn lizard-brain that refused to allow me to accept help, and I continued to pant the next few blocks solo. When I was but a block from home, I knew I couldn't carry it any longer, and put it down to rest for a moment. Only then was I willing to swallow my pride and accept help.

And it just so happened the next person to offer to help carry this was a woman who could not have been less than sixty years old. So, with me struggling visibly more so than this sixty-plus woman, we finished out the short distance remaining.

damn_cool for the kind, helpful people in my neighborhood. Very damn_uncool for me.

Damn uncool? Easy :p I work for the Government :p

I live in a crappy town with only one Uni, which is rated the lowest of all of Australia, so all my friends have moved to other states to go to Uni elsewhere, there's only three of us left out of about 30, which is also very damn uncool.

It's took me 48 hours, and then 2 hours to make the subtitles layer over it, to download Advent Children and actually get it to work. Whoever I downloaded it off through bit torrents was so much of an asshat...*growls*

Andddd...damn uncool? I have work tomorrow :p

Well. I've had quite a few damn_uncool moments in my life, and a really big one recently.

Basically, a friend of mine was dealing with a lot of shit in his life, and because of some of this pressure was being a bit of a jerk.

I was having my own problems, and had a conversation with a mutual friend of ours, and TOTALLY reamed him out. I mean, I called him a little primadonna and just...really, I was a total, immature bitch.

Long story short, he finds out about it, and has been pissed at me for ages. I hadn't thought much about the conversation until he brought it up, as I had just written it off as a bad-day-I'll-get-over-it-rant. (Excuses, excuses.)

But anyway. I was basically a huge bitch, talked about totally trashed one of my friends behind his back, and almost completely messed up something that matters to me.

This is totally damn_uncool, particularly because I've been very preachy about honesty and maturity, etc. recently, and this just made me one of the biggest hypocrites in the world.

On the damn_cool note though, he forgave me and I've got a much-needed dose of humility.

I was eating a panini once, and it was really toasted. When I bit into it, there was a sharp edge on it that cut the corner of my mouth. I was bleeding everywhere. I'm probably one of the few people on earth who manages to be injured by bread.

Maybe this is more of a damn_really stupid thing...

Proposed theme:


"What's the damn_uncoolest thing you've ever done?"


Today was definitely the epitome of my uncoolness, because I jumped up to go get some gum, and I tripped on my shoe and broke my little toe.

Having a broken toe is pretty damn_uncool, I think. :(

Well. Job? Man, do I feel left out. I'm fourteen years old and unemployed. I get $5 a week to do all of the laundry in the house. It's pathetic. In about a month I will be fifteen and I want to work for Dairy Queen or something but my mother will not allow it. She seems to think that my time would be better spent working on a portfolio for Carnegie Mellon University, one of the universities I want to apply to when I'm done with high school. But I've never been an obsessive student and I don't know what the fuck I can put in a CMU portfolio when I'm not even fifteen years old yet.

So when I have to fill out some retarded online form to register for a service, I can put "student" in the "occupation" field. Laurel Highlands Senior High School, sophomore year, wasting my life ineffably.

Since I'm a mod I guess I should do the theme :p

So I work for the Government. Hate me :p

I'm on a traineeship with them for a year, where I basically work for them to earn my certificate III in Business and IT. Means I don't go to Uni, I get on the job experience and I actually get paid for it. Not much at all, of course, but...it sure beats paying to go to Uni for years and not even experience the job itself, right?

I work in the Department of Education, Employment and Training. I've worked in IT Services, Records Management (my favourite) and now I'm in School of Languages. I'm just an admin, personal assistant type of office job, and it's...good. Very good. Nice offices, okay equipment, generally nice people. Weird hours though. We start at 8am and finish at 4:21pm. Not joking. That's the Government for you.

I finish next February, but Records Management are already filing the paperwork to have me back. I can't wait ^^ I really dislike where I am now, although it should sound good to be in such an awesome office. We look after all the languages for my state, and we have the biggest library of language books, but the organisation there (or there lack of) is terrible and it's such a stressful job. In a few months I'll be back in Records Management though...after my six weeks holiday leave though. That's another good point of the Government. Six weeks paid vacation? Woo!

Once a month for a week we go into training as well, there's three classes of people doing the same certificate as me at the same time, all in different Government departments. We do assignments together (to earn the certificate) and basically just talk about our different works. I'm there next week actually. It's awesome to be paid to sit and do assignments and talk for a week :p

So basically, I look after an office. Answer phones. Enrol kids. Direct classes on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Look after...paperwork...and stuff... All very boring, but I'm in my element, and it's a relaxing kind of stress :p That's all I guess o-o

Oh, and sorry for the bare ass in my mood icon. Shoebox Project is an addiction :p

I work at McDonalds. Damn_uncool most of the time.



I usually just handle money.


Daily I am forced to deal with the excesses of capitalism, consumer culture, and a general loss of innocence to the question, "Can you REALLY eat all of that food?"



The answer, my friends, is there ARE people who can eat half-pound hamburgers, ginormous boxes of French fries, and STILL NOT BE SATISFIED.


But hey, it pays the bills.

Right? Right.

My job... Technically, i am just a bum. But an ART bum. That's the best sort, right? I go to art school, so when that isn't sapping all my creativity i paint, and illustrate comics, and get a little money from that. Although these days all i seem to sell are commissions. Which i loathe. But, i also like having money. Sometimes i feel like a sellout painting what people tell me, but luckily the "paint my RP character" commissions seemed to have died out for more "paint me a picture like that one you already did".

I also work part-time at Dig-A-Tattoo, the tattoo parlour where my boyfriend and flatmate types work. Bear in mind that i do nothing very interesting here. I design flash for the walls/ folders which doesn't require me to actually go into the shop, and if im there i'll do the receptionist thing. answering stupid questions like "how much is a tattoo?" and "does it hurt?". While the pay for this is diddly-squat i get free tattoos. Which suits me just fine.
