Today's random thought

Sometimes I forget that I'm actually LGBTQ+.

Not because of any personal experience of acephobia/being ostracized but just because being defined as such always seemed so ... sex-centric? Almost always, I see people defining their "LGBTQ+"-ness via the metric of, "Who am I (sexually) attracted to," and for asexual me, that never helped me connect with the umbrella identity.

A Tale of Two Sisters (6/10) → A bit too slow for my tastes. I didn't like Su-Mi at all and it wasn't nearly as scary as I'd hoped it would be. Though I do like the fact that you end up going, "Oh, shit," when you look back at the rest of the movie after the twist was revealed.

Oculus (7/10) → Very much enjoyed the build-up of the movie but it kinda fell flat for me in the climax; it ... didn't really feel like it had a climax? But the way the past and the future timelines progressively blended together throughout the entire movie was really good. Spoilers? )

Steven Universe S05E01-04 (9/10)

The more I think about it, the more I believe that Yellow Diamond was the one behind Pink Diamond's death. Also, I totally did not expect them to go in that direction with Lars holy shit o_O

Comics/Graphic Novels

Elseworlds Trilogy

  • Superman's Metropolis (2/5)
  • Batman: Nosferatu (3/5)
  • Wonder Woman: The Blue Amazon (1/5)

According to Wikipedia, all the stories are based on German expressionist films. Overall not really my thing in terms of art or writing. The latter felt like the writer was trying too hard to be ... idk if "deep" is the right word.

I liked the Wonder Woman issue the least. While I like the background that was given to her, the story in its entirety captured nothing of Diana's essence. Someone on Goodreads said that they focused on Diana's attractiveness and nothing else as her main defining characteristic and that's pretty accurate. Superman's and Batman's stories still managed to make me go, "Yep, that's Supes and Bats," and maintained the core of the characters but The Blue Amazon only got "wtf?????" out of me.

I had this long-ish entry planned out to talk about a conversation I had on Twitter the other day but honestly just the thought of it lowkey annoys me so have a good Tweet thread instead:

I forgot to mention this but THE LIBRARY CAME THROUGH FOR ME! I managed to get a DVD copy of "The Expanse" Season 2 from Baltimore County! Tim and I have been watching an episode each night and OMG WTF SEASON 2 IS INSANE!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so glad I stuck with this show. Season 1 was interesting but didn't hook me but Season 2...daaaaaamn.

I will post coherent thoughts after we are caught up and then I get to suffer until Season 3 starts on SyFy...when is that? Next year? UGH!

Won't get to watch an episode tonight because Thursdays are for Anime (our friend Mathew comes over and we watched a few shows on CrunchyRoll) but we should be finished with this season by the end of next week.

You guys are the best <3

Thank you for all the positive vibes this week for my interview. Despite being nervous, I think I did really well! Like all interviews, after I got home that night I was doing the "OMG I should have said THAT!" inner monologue. But I was satisfied with how I did.

The real fun will be next week when I have an interview for Branch Manager. This one is a bit more challenging since there will be people from outside the system and I have no idea how many people applied. They only have one day of interviews so I think it must be around five people, but it is all about experience.

But I'm feeling pretty good about my preparation technique. I'm going to tweak my notes before the interview so I'm ready (they give you the questions about 20 minutes before the interview so you can get your thoughts together).

At least I have kept myself busy this week with the Escape Room program. Just finished up my second round of groups and the kids loved it. Tomorrow I have a full day of the program. Hardest part is not giving them hints but if they are running out of time, I can't help myself! They all seemed to have fun and the chocolate at the end really made their day LOL.

And now it is time to shut down the library and head home for PIZZA! TTFN

quietly losing it

Librarian II interview is tomorrow and I've had a nervous knot in my stomach all day! ARGH! All those little voices in my head and starting to speak up, making my anxious and causing self-doubt.

I swear, if the interview had been the week I submitted the application I would be full of confidence and ready to go but after sitting on it this long, I'm starting to lose my mind.

10:30am tomorrow. Wish me luck!
