|I have onion breath from today's tuna sandwich. Mmm. I love Summit sandwiches.

Hmm, personal update. (By the way, I'm planning on sticking with livejournal. I'm already in the process of private-locking my entries prior to college, and I'm posting publicly from now on.)|
I got the job! Last week I interviewed for the UCSD Student Safety Awareness & Sexual Assault Resource Center. Yes. I hate telling people where I [am going to] work because the title is so long.
The job description is primarily clerical work, customer service, representative at certain events, etc. But the twist is that I actually partake in awareness workshops and such. Obviously, I don't counsel or get involved with cases, but people call me and share why they've contacted this service (reasons such as "I think my friend got raped"). So this position required knowledge of rape and sexual assault. The funny thing was the interview was almost a mini-quiz on such areas and how one would approach these cases. I pretty much answered however I felt my mom would respond to certain situations. Thank you, mom, for holding counseling sessions in our living room ever since I was born. Not that I listened to any of them...
Pretty cool first job, I'd say. Better than working at Cafe Ventannas or the bookstore (where I should've worked as student without prior work experience), in terms of pay, job description, and life experience.
The first round of midterms have passed. I took four midterms in the same week. But fortunately, they weren't too bad. Overall, I'm quite pleased with how they turned out, since usually my first round of tests in new classes is really poor. Life is good as a non-math/science major. It's almost the time of season to register for winter courses, so I think I'll be paying the academic advising a visit soon. I want to decide whether I want to double-major in music or music humanities.
Today is Halloween, but I think I'll stay in my room and study. I was going to downtown La Jolla for some candy because supposedly them rich folk give out king size Twix and dollar bills. But Halloween hurts my teeth, my stomach, and eyes (some costumes are really...gross). Still, there are many exciting events coming up: IV frosh retreat, DOTs first concert, and going home for Thanksgiving! I shall depart with the whole two pictures I took at the Harvest Fall retreat this past weekend.
It's good to have this kid at college with me.
