Pretty much what Sun said.

While you only have 2000 characters to tell your story, do just that-- try and tell it like a story, if you can! Engage the entry-reader and make them identify with your case so much that they just have to pick you! (This sounds very similar to college essay writing, actually-- maybe read up on some tips about how to compose those too?)

Wolf-- Good luck!

I just can't figure out how to answer the 'Make Your Case' section.
Good luck! I'd think you need to be passionate in the Make Your Case section, see it as an entry to convince the reader that they need to pick *you*.

It's like an interview of sorts

Good luck undoing all that, packing/unpacking is always my less favorite part of moving somewhere (Luckily, haven't done so in several years).

I had my first asthma attack in 5 years today. but now I have new script for an inhaler. (mine was 4 years old. Which is why I went to the ER)


Now I'm killing time until Doctor Who at 9. By reading 152 pages in my Children!s lit book
Re:Boxes and shit

Thanks guy's! We're almost finished today, mostly some random bobbles to put away and maybe reupholster the dining room chairs. We got lotsa laundry to do, which is the majority of shit we have to finish before it can be put away proper and we can make the bed.

Had the sofa cleaned by Sears folks today so that's drying before it gets the cushions put back in place. MOSTLY DONE. MOSTLY.

Brandon took work off today because he got REALLY ill last night, he's been coughing and sneezing for two solid days and incredibly lethargic. I don't think I've ever seen him so sick, he says it allergies and it's probably all the dust and gross stuff from the storage unit and boxes. He's been a sick baby that's for sure. He just keeps pushin' forward with getting the apartment finish so he can just relax tonight and get a good night sleep since we've been pretty much going with unpacking until 2 am for the past couple days.

He's really feeling crappy but can't afford to take another day of work off :/ he'll probably pick up a Saturday shift to make up for missing today even. So last night I went out and got him a pack of allergy pills, nighttime alka seltzer tea, and a jug of chai tea to mix with hot milk to help clear out his nose.

His head hit the pillow last night and he was out like a light.

...Wow.

Foxes are cute, but they're also mostly nocturnal, run constantly, pee on things (they're pretty much impossible to litterbox train) exude a skunky smell (has this person ever actually been around foxes?) dig holes, leap, make weird sounds, and require all sorts of expensive medication if they get sick.
That's the worst idea I've heard in a long time. Just getting a wild animal because it's "adorable?" ...I can't even.
I love foxes, but having one as a pet just isn't feasible.

Ugh.


So anyway, I've been offered a position as head of children's events at the Strand. Woooo!

She wanted a fox because it's kawaii uguu~



Even though we 'ruined her dreams',it's going to be super fulfilling when she tames a wild beast. Because that's totes something that happens all the time. Remember that video of two guy's who went to see the lion they raised as a cub out in the wild and it remembered them and loved them and stuff? It's like that, only with foxes. The fox whisperer of Florida.

Also, congratulations! You damned successful fine thang.

I'd probably have the seed grow inside my body considering I like to chew on pencils.

I assure you, I prefer coffee.

Either with a shot of hazelnut syrup, or dark as a hash with six zeroes and just a dash of milk.

Lies, Astérix chez les Bretons taught me well on england.

Tea time at 3 (And other times), even in times of war. Fog all the time, unless it rains.

It has to be true!
