Seems the job offer I'm a realistic candidate for won't be able to give me any answers before early January.|
This sux. I need to sign up for psychometric exams till Sunday. The course starts 7th of January, and the exam is early April.
Only thing they were willing to say is that San Diego is not an option anymore, but Richmond, BC (near Vancouver) is still very viable.
I don't know what to do :(

Me n' a bunch of Old Jersey folks went to pick up our long-lost comrade Ariel from the airport.|
We were waiting there for an hour and a half, and he doesn't show.
Turns out his flight is tomorrow. Haha, my friends are such stoners. Tomorrow, same bat-time, same bat-channel.
Anyway, it was amusing.
I like the airport. :]
Oh, I also got a haircut today. Goddamn bloody time.

So here's where I'm at:|
Today my dad pimped me to be a powerpoint monkey in his office for the day. I guess it's a known phenomena, when the kid comes back home from a big trip, the parentials automatically start putting the pressure on him to get a job, go to school, blah blah blah.
I'm cookin up some stuff, and yet I'm still badgered. Even grandma asked me on the phone 'So, what now?'. I told her I was gonna finish eating ;p
I did find something amusing at my dad's office though;
They had a directory in their network called 'MP3', and the only song they had there was..
Within Temptation - Ice Queen
I didn't expect that, I can tell ya.
I'm looking into a job proposal I received from the Israeli representatives of a North American hi-tech company.
The job may very well have me move to North America (USA/Canada)..
Other than that, I checked out Tel-Aviv University's webpage and stuff today. Seems I need to do a psychometric exam (sorta like a GMAT or GRE or something) and get around 680 (which is quite above average) if I wanna learn Psychology-Philosophy.
Another option I'm looking into is a multidisciplinary program they have for uber-students, full scholarship + MA after 4 years. That's worth a lot of money, though they only accept like 15 people every year.. Anyway, it's worth looking into, even just out of curiousity.
Aight, thassabout it.

Ack, more weekend madness. Just like zee good ol' days.|
Started out Thursday with a weak night @ the-alternative thursdays. Dunno. The Synthpop beat just ain't cutting it no more. (Okay, me and Meirav danced like lil' kiddies to A23, but that's it). Only stuff of the EBM genre I like right about now is speedy aggro stuff. anything slower than 160 BPM can kiss my ass.
Then Friday we went to a Drum n' Bass party at the Comfort 11, which is a pretty cool venue I'd never been to before. Had these large video screens and stuff. Anyway, the usual assortment of Israeli dnb DJs/MCs plus some special gueststes from Holland.
It started out kinda weak, but by 3:00 or so got heavier and sweet. Glowsticks flying everywhere. We rocked the place till about 6:30, when I dragged Meirav home.
Saturday we sorta shlepped around all day doing nothing, then at night we went to eat ice cream and see Kill Bill vol.1. Pretty sweet movie, even better the 2nd time 'round.
When we came out of the movie, about 3:00 in the morning, we heard tiny 'mew' sounds from around our car. There was a lil' kittie hiding underneath my volkswagon. We dedicated 40 minutes to try and convince the kittie to get out of the underneath-and-inside of my car. I don't know if we succeeded or not, but the mew sounds stopped at some point, and we basically gave up.
Kittie, if you're reading this in Kittie-heaven, I'm so sorry.
Other than that, I hope he escaped while we weren't paying attention.
Today wasn't very productive. I wanted to do stuff (like cut my hair), but didn't. All I did today was argue with the morons at HP/Compaq support. My dad's iPAQ has some problems, and their professional advice was to do a hard reset. Big whoopie, I don't need them to tell me that.
That's so fucked up, I mean any computer technical support can just as easily say "format your computer and reinstall everything, it'll work", but that's BS. Pisses me off that I know more about this shit than the dude I was talking too.
Other than that, the new car is here and in working condition, hopefully I'm gonna give it a test run tomorrow. Weee!
Liron came over tonight. Haven't seen here in 3 ages. ;)))

Hmph. No car today *grumpy*.|
It'll be ready tomorrow morning. We're getting a Hyundai Getz to replace the ol' TelecartMobile.
Tonight I go party at ze alternative. I've missed our local brew of altrock and EBM madness.
A few tasks for next week:
* Drive new car.
* Mod my Playstation 2.
* Visit friends in Jerusalem.
* Fix dad's iPaq (or, rather, take it to HP-Compaq to get checked out).
* Visit dad at the office.
* Call the folks who might want to hire me.
* Start sniffing around for a school/programme/whatever.
