ONly Kermit can pull of the "spaz look" and look cool

I can get used to Hot Topic; it's growing on me ;)
Anyway, went shopping at the mall with mum and it was sheer torture. Yes, we went shopping so I can get new pants but I loathe clothes shopping and when you throw my mom into the picture, well, let's just say that I feel like leaping off the Santa Monica Pier. Anyway, got some pants and also a pair of Easy Spirit shoes. They're kinda ugly but I'm picky with my sneakers. They give me arch support and that's all that really matters to me; good walking shoes. I also grabbed two 5 pound weights for my stretching (I lost 3 pounds!). Then we went to the food court; I went to Coffee Bean since I already had dinner and mom had some Panda Express. After that I went into Hot Topic to look for some buttons; and found some! I also got the Hogwarts t-shirt and a really nifty Harry Potter bag. It has the Dark Mark on the front with "Voldemort Returns" and on the inside part is says "Mosmodre". It comes with a cute little flashlight that shows the Dark Mark (mom noticed that). It also has a phone and Ipod pocket; I really like it. I filled out an application to work there and I actually might have a chance. Jobs discriminate against people my size and the girl that helped me was a little bit smaller then me; so I might have a shot.
So now I'm hear pondering which icon to use for this post. I'm going to catch the movie either tomorrow or Thursday (after class). I'll see it again in late December with my friend. Ah, speaking of December; mom and I are going to Disneyland on Christmas day or New Years Eve (and stay for the countdown). We haven't decided which day yet. The first night of Chanukah falls on Christmas. It's a Jewish tradition to have fun on Christmas so it'll either be Disneyland or having family friends over to play games (Times Up, Trivial Pursuit, Outburst!, etc).
Okay, I think that's it for now.

A lot of girls that work at hot topic are bigger. Same with Torrid. You should see if you have one of those near you too, I know it's big in California. It's where I get most of my girly clothes at. It's owned by Hot Topic but is strictly girls.

Damn, I feel ya on that one. People make all kinds of assumptions about heavier people which just aren't true. The best way to combat it is to get your hair done, put on some make-up, dress up damn nice, stand up tall, speak confidently and show the world that you value yourself.

Attitude is everything. ^_^

Have you ever tried a temp. agency? I know that they often provide the gateway to a lasting job, because they let you prove your skills...

I came close to buying that bag earlier...how big is it? I love it, but the only thing I carry is like...2 books for school, so I thought it would be too big for that.

It's fairly good size in my humble opinion. I can put all my soft cover version HP books in it (plus HBP in hardback).
It's really cool, I plan on keeping my art and writing in it =-)

There was a news article over here just last week about employers discriminating against people who weren't stick insects... seems crazy to me, I could understand if it was at the point where it caused health issues - I worked with a guy who was really huge to the point where his knee's were getting damaged and he had blood pressure problems... Personally I'd say screw any company that would rather have fashion models instead of capable and competant staff...

I could understand it if it were a health problem; but I'm in fairly good shape for my weight. I walk at a brisk pace for one thing; I stretch and I'm lifting some weights. I'm trying to get in better shape and I'm trying to lose my damn weight.

Bleh to discriminating towards people that are more curvy. People need to work, no matter what weight! I'm very thin, not really by choice, though; stupid metabolism. Anyway, it's a real big pet peeve when people judge others by their weight (as well as race, gender, religion, sexuality). Society today is caught up on being a size -000000, which makes most hiring jobs look for the "perfect" image, even in their businesses. Sad.

No worries, you'll get a job. :) Good to see you survived shopping, lol. Glad you texted me on my cell.

I envy your metabolism :P
My brother, in one of his more grumpy moods, said I would have to have a desk job because "no self respecting store manager would hire a fat girl"
Arse.
I'm glad I texted you too; it beats boredom and Hedwig's Theme comes on when you reply....that's the main HP theme, you hear it in the beginning of the movies.
I survived with only a few minor injuries.
