Had an interview with toys r us today. It was really fun surprisingly and I went on to the one on one interviews. Everyone was super nervous but we all wished each other luck and supported each other so that was very nice. In the end the guy who interviewed me liked me a lot and we had a lot in common and put in a request to put me in Barbie’s dream house and the action section since I spoke about liking dolls and comic books. They just need to do background check and then they’ll call me back! There was a supervisor who sat in for part of the interviews and he spoke to me afterwards on the floor and asked how the interview went and told me that he knew I was the one as soon as he heard me speak and wants me to be there. I was apparently the only one of the group he thought had any chance. Everyone was so nervous and frightened ;w; but I still managed to stay over enthusiastic and I’m glad they liked it and me! Because I’m always afraid that people don’t like enthusiasm and want more seriousness in their interviews but everyone was very kind to me and happy with my happiness :3 I learned a lot about the people there and I hope nothing is bad about my background! There shouldn’t be but I’m a nervous Nancy. But today was good and I’m excited to work at toys r us :B
…the Saints are displayed in a cathedral in Eastern Germany close to the Czech border and were acquired in the 17th century when there was a big trade in relics. They are said to be the remains of Martyred saints that were stored in the catacombs of Rome before being removed and traded. They were reassembled and dressed in their fine regalia and displayed in ornate cabinets.

A number of years ago, while suffering from a mild case of scribe’s fever, a form of neurasthenia common among the intelligentsia of that time, I decided to spend the month of August in the spa town of Nebelsbad below the Alpine Sudetenvatz and had taken up rooms in the Grand Budapest, a picturesque, elaborate and once widely celebrated establishment. I expect some of you will know it.

Protests aren’t so sexy and revolutionary to white motherfuckers when black people do it for self-defense, huh. I like this selective picking and choosing of what constitutes as the “right” kind of retaliation and what’s “wrong.” Your racism is as obvious as the sun in the sky, you V for Vendetta geekass bitches.
you’re not a bad person if there are actual reasons why looking at ferguson stuff makes you terribly anxious or paranoid and im not going to fault you if you can’t. but, if you are humanly able, please reblog the posts on how to help, how to avoid tear gas, how to help pay for legal fees, the vigils, etc., and please, if you have the hd space, download and archive every video/picture of this you can, they are being taken off of social media.
