Interview, sleep, shitty writers, my shitty writing.

I have an interview at the Korean Consulate in Chicago tomorrow morning. Then I wait and with any luck I'll have my visa within a couple weeks. My unofficial date of departure is December 20, whereas my contract will start January 2. I'm actually pretty nervous about this interview. I'm, like, ridiculously at ease with phone interviews, but in-person? Not so much. I'll probably end up saying something like, "Um, er, uh, go Cubbies!!!" Yeah, I know.

My sleep schedule is pretty awful. I've been going to bed at 7am and getting up at about 12:30pm. I don't even know. Considering how I just napped for several hours and I have to be up by 8am tomorrow morning for my 10am interview, well, I suspect I'll be pretty tired by this time tomorrow.

I just finished reading a book that left a HUGE plot line wide open at the end of the book. And then I went to the author's website to find out why she did it - and it turns out she "may" want to write a sequel one day. This book was published in 20fucking05. The bitch hasn't released a sequel yet. You don't just toy with my emotions like that! God.

My writing is happening. Slowly. Recently I've spent far too many days writing The Sex Scene from Hell. Let's just say... I am no cunning linguist, and in a few hours/days/weeks I may or may not post the scene for help/advice/etc. Take from that what you will.

Maybe your crazy sleep schedule will come in handy for when you get to Korea...

I've had pretty much the exact same sleep schedule, except that I sleep longer. Sucks.
I'll be pretty much able to offer any cunnilingus help you might need, from, either end :)

Ew, I'm sorry about your sleep schedule. Sometimes I take a nap in the afternoons, but otherwise I don't sleep enough. Hah, thanks! I'll probably post it sometime soon. :)

God bless you for using 'cunning linguist.'

I'm so excited for you, Mr. Korea-man.

Haha if someone said Go Cubbies to me on the phone I would totally hire them. You'll do perfectly fine. UGH im so excited for you!

My schedule is pretty rough too. Sleep at 4, awake at like 1 or 2. I mean its fine for school and stuff since it's night classes but still. I hate it.

hahaha, I'm not even a Cubs fan (I mean, I don't like baseball at all, so yeah), but I'm from Cubs-land so it's kind of a prerequisite that I like them. Thank you!! I'm excited too. And nervous. :x

Ack, that sucks! At least you're doing night classes so it doesn't matter THAT much. I understand though, I really like being up all night, but it makes me feel like I'm not being a productive member of society. My job's hours are supposedly 1pm-9pm, so I can see myself going to bed at like 2am every night. :'(

I don't think I can come to the Russian Club Dinner... I REALLY want to, especially to see everyone (well, you + Kara + Curly Amanda) before I go, but my dad is having a biopsy on Friday and he's freaking out about that. He'd freak out even more if I weren't around afterwards. He's treating it like it's a major surgery, but he's put off getting it for ages and he REALLY doesn't need to put off getting it again. (ugh, I know, more info than you really wanted... but yeah.)
