So I called up City College and there's a loooooooong waiting list for the free baking/pastry certificate. Soooo I'm going to call back I guess and maybe see if I can just get my name on the list for the moment. They're telling me to try calling back in October/November JUST to see where they are with the list :/ I guess I'm also going to look around for other programs maybe. I know my dad was saying maybe they could help with tuition if I decide to do a REAL program, but I don't really want to do that/be in that much more debt. I was talking to my friend and one of her friends basically said to not worry so much about the certificates/school. Look for a job in the industry, even a crappy one, and basically work your way up. You learn all you need to on the job anyway. So I'm going to focus my attention on getting a job doing something in the baking/cooking world, since I need money anyway, while waiting to see if I can also get into a program of sorts.

In the meantime, I've finished Good Omens and now have become slightly obsessed with Aziraphale/Crowley. I mean, that is the natural reaction to having read the book, right? Now clearly I'm a n00b in this fandom, so if you have any recs for fic/art/etc. I'd be ever so grateful XD I've been reading some fic over at [ profile] lower_tadfield, but I haven't gotten very far yet and I have no idea if there's anything that is maybe considered a MUST READ or a CLASSIC in the fandom. Also, I'm not sure how it would work, but any icons?
spacemonkeyluvn: (community:: TROY)
So, I get a little annoyed with all the pimping going around regarding Fandom March Madness. I still vote though. Why not, right? ANYHOO, while it would have been awesome to see Sherlock vs. Eleven, I am SOOOOOO proud of Troy. I can't believe he actually made it to the final two! I love Eleven. I love Eleven. BUT I kinda want to see Troy win just because he's such an underdog. Not to mention, he's hilarious and adorable and sweet and just an awesome character. If you vote, vote for whoever you want. I love them both so it's a win either way for me ;)

ETA: LOL This has a whole new significance now

So I was thinking about selling a few things on my LJ. Stuff like DVDs I never watch, jewelry I never wear, and maybe some other stuff once I take a look around. I'd post pictures and accept payment via Paypal ($US). If someone wanted something, I'll be using this to calculate shipping (international is fine if you're willing to pay the shipping). I'd ask if anyone is interested, but I guess I'd need to post the stuff first ;) Is there anywhere else on LJ where I could post my stuff? It's not really fandom-related, and I've never done this before so I have no idea. I just need to clear up some space and as I'm currently unemployed, even a little money would be a big help. I was thinking about eBay, but I don't think I'd ask for or get enough money to make it worth what they take. There's always Craigslist too I guess. *shrug*

Other than that, today I was looking around online for some other baking classes. I found a possibility but it's more into bread making. So tomorrow will be looking for jobs. Online at first, trying to make a list of possible places to start. I'm thinking even something like Safeway or Costco because they have bakeries in them. At least I have something of a goal for now. Well, an idea. But that's a start :)

Also, why no-one on LJ is getting comment notifications:

*le sigh*
