• Today it's cold and lazily snowing here in Santa Fe. That's right. It's May 13th, and it's snowing. This place has the weirdest weather.

• This Saturday I'm going to put on a cap and gown and do the whole walking/shaking hands/accepting my "diploma" thing. (The school already mailed me my diploma since I actually finished my course work and all that in Dec. I think it's sort of hilarious that I'm doing this all now, but it is what it is.) Various family is coming, and there will be some juggling of time, but I think it will be a nice time all around. Certainly I'm looking forward to being done with everything concerned with this college.

• I had a job interview today, for a position I'm not entirely sure I applied for but that I'm probably qualified for and which seems like it might be more interesting (and in some ways less anxiety-inducing for me) than the position I think I actually did apply for. I'm pretty sure the people liked me, and I'm pretty sure the interview went well. Think good thoughts for me, internet peoples. I really need something that's going to bring in some money.

• This is the week of season finales on TV. Once Upon A Time ended on Sunday, and had about three minutes of everyone being happy and me crying because it was so beautiful and amazing before all that happiness got stabbed in the face and everything was terrible again. I mean, it was wonderful, but I'm pretty sure my cat is concerned for my well-being now, since I actually screeched in horror. The current seasons of Castle and The Blacklist both ended last night, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will end tonight. Elementary will end this Thursday.

• On the other hand, Game of Thrones is currently in the middle of it's current season, and Da Vinci's Demon's just passed the halfway mark. Plus, Penny Dreadful just started, and Crossbones will begin at the end of the month, so it's not like I won't have anything to watch.

• I'm currently rereading various of the Tortall books by Tamora Pierce. I really love these books. If I ever write YA stuff, I want it to be like these amazing stories, and not have some of the weird tropes that show up in YA these days.

Well, that might be it for now. I need to do some cleaning around my apartment, and I should maybe do that while there's daylight.

• I watched the entire first season of Arrow in 3 days, all so I can get to the two episodes in the second season with Grant Gustin. Lookit me, waving my nerd flag! All joking aside, it was pretty good. When the second season ends, I'll get my hands on the whole thing and then marathon that, too.

• Other TV I'm currently watching and enjoying for the curious: Once Upon A Time, Game of Thrones, Elementary, Vikings, Da Vinci's Demons, and of course Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

• Stiiiiiiiill looking for a job. I finally got an interview somewhere, and it was a good interview, but I'm genuinely not sure what my chances are? And the guy said he would probably know by Friday (that is, two days ago) so I should probably hear back one way or the other tomorrow. Fingers and other appropriate appendages crossed.

• (If I get a job I can finally get a blu ray player, and then I can actually watch some of the movies I bought when I was with someone who had a PS3.)

• I bought a basil plant from Trader Joe's the other day just so I could have fresh pesto in my life again. I whipped up a batch and it was totally amazing. And the plant is recovering from the fact that I took most of its leaves to make that batch. It's sort of amazing how quickly this plant is growing, actually.

• Speaking of which: it's a really good thing I've kept the plant inside my house, because last night and this morning it fucking snowed. Even though we'd been having nice weather in the 70's, and then BAM! Snow. Weird ass New Mexico weather.
