White people speaking shitty Spanish to order their burritos are the absolute worst. My eyes litrally roll to the back of my skull.
I find out Monday if I’m employed. I am a poorly wound ball of nerves. It would make me the happiest boy in the whole world.
Final interview tomorrow! Everything is moving very quickly. I have to hang out in the office for an afternoon for coffee and do a work simulation. Then they will check my references, if all goes well.
While this is all very exciting, I just fell into an internet hole (I am supposed to be transcribing interviews for a friend in Vienna and it is so numbingly boring) on Indrid Cold and the Mothman and now my palms are sweating and I am afraid. ALSO I am in my parent’s big ass suburban house which is ripe for HAUNTINGS. AGH.
met with the Dean of Berkeley Extension, Director of Study Abroad, Director of Development, and the Chief Administrative Officer of the Extension and charmed their pants off. it couldn’t have gone better, I think. I find out next week if I make it to the final round. Things are HAPPENING FINALLY.

Find meaning. Distinguish melancholy from sadness. Go out for a walk. It doesn’t have to be a romantic walk in the park, spring at its most spectacular moment, flowers and smells and outstanding poetical imagery smoothly transferring you into another world. It doesn’t have to be a walk during which you’ll have multiple life epiphanies and discover meanings no other brain ever managed to encounter. Do not be afraid of spending quality time by yourself. Find meaning or don’t find meaning but “steal” some time and give it freely and exclusively to your own self. Opt for privacy and solitude. That doesn’t make you antisocial or cause you to reject the rest of the world. But you need to breathe. And you need to be.—
I need to keep these words in mind.
