iPhone not claws compliant!

August 28, 2010

I recently purchased an iPhone on ebay and I was very excited to get acquainted with it.  But not long after I opened it, did I realize that the touch screen does not respond to my claws. I quickly realized the implications such a minor detail could have on my acting career. I was unable to respond to a very important text message regarding a major role. Now I realize that I’m obviously in the minority but I would expect a big name company like Apple to be a little more thorough in their beta testing. I can’t even play Bejeweled… such BS.

Subsequently, I was forced to settle for a role which I didn’t quite feel I was born to play…

My outdated means of transportation…

August 27, 2010

So I finally decided to make the leap in joining mainstream society and get my license. I suppose though, it was a bit naive of me to assume I could pass my drivers test on the first try.  My visual acuity proved to be more of an issue than I expected.  Since my vision is largely based on movement, I found it rather difficult to navigate through the streets of man.  For the most part, I was ok at avoiding oncoming traffic but I managed to hit the majority of inanimate objects I encountered.  So as you’d probably expected, I failed the road test. I have to settle for a scooter in the meantime, but the same challenges remain.  Nighttime driving is particularly difficult and I have a hard time not instinctively following any moving  lights that approach.  I guess I have no choice and will have to make do with the archaic means of a scooter. Public transportation is clearly out of the question…

a pre-existing condition

August 26, 2010

Unfortunately, my current state of unemployment has left me without medical insurance. I’ve been browsing websites and paperwork on the different plans available and have applied to one but got rejected.  Apparently, my history of anxiety as well as a surgery I had 8 months ago to repair a torn bicep tendon has rendered me too high of a risk to be insured. I’m sure the fact that I’m a 5,000lb trex doesn’t help my cause much…high risk for heart disease probably. This is all particularly frustrating because this means I will have to endure the entire application process again, but this time with less certainty that it will have a favorable outcome.  Clearly, I can’t be quite so honest if I want coverage.  I suppose I will try a deductible plan this time and hope for the best. This certainly doesn’t help my anxiety problem.

The economy and dinosaurs

August 23, 2010

The challenges of monetizing my website are forcing me to face a harsh reality.  I need to start building a portfolio so that I might find work.  There are a few challenges in this regard, one of which is the current state of our economy.  No one is looking to hire people, let alone giant dinosaurs.  I’d like to get into advertising but the catch 22 is that I have no portfolio because I have minimal work experience and I have minimal work experience because I have no portfolio. As a result, I have to design made-up ads for my portfolio which is challenging because I really have no boundaries or focus. It’s too much freedom. Plus I really have no idea what people buy so I have to take a wild guess and move forward with my design from there.

working at the barn…

August 23, 2010

Lately I’ve been forcing myself to get out of the house. I think I get more done when I don’t have the comforts of home to distract me. Though, it’s days like this where I remember how challenging it can be. I thought it was a good idea to take a trip to barnes and noble to get some work done on the website. I like to take a stroll around the children’s section to get inspired by the different types of illustrations and artists before sitting down to work.

First,I went to the in-store starbucks to grab my usual iced coffee. And as usual, I forget how cold they keep it in the store and don’t realize till after I order my cold beverage that I forgot to bring my hoodie… On top of that, I forget to bring my own extra long drinking straw that I need due to my little arms. So I’m left walking around the children’s section, freezing, with 3 regular sized straws poorly taped together with coffee splashing at me through the gaps as I attempt to enjoy my beverage. What’s more, all the children are crying because they’re so cold. A miserable experience for everyone…
