Who are you going for?

Who are you going for?
I'm having a hell of a time finding a job. I've been looking since I turned 19, and I'm 22 now. I've been to a few interviews, but have never been hired. I've acted as upbeat and cheery as possible, but my reviews have been pretty much, "You seem too low energy and quiet." How does one act upbeat when your natural attitude is pessimistic and you're usually depressed? I want to be upbeat, but I don't want them to know it's fake.
I'm moving to Seattle and looking for rooms with September availability but I just don't know how to word my e-mails to these people. I want to express my interest but what is the etiquette for saying you won't be in town until mid-August to see the place? Help?
How are things in your life?
I might have to give him away.
Why is he doing this?
Will you reccommend books for me that you've loved?
Non-fiction is less likely to bore me these days, it seems, but if you could reccommend fiction that is intelligent but not entirely character-based (something has to happen with the plot or I just don't give a shit), too, that would be awesome! Genres don't really matter, just suggest things you've loved! I will say I'm a consistent fan of 'darker' subject matter.
2) What's the last mistake you made?
Who is righ TQC?
Don't know/Don't care: What is your favorite old Nickelodeon show?
Do you have any secret tricks/tips of the trade? Why do you use it over acrylics/watercolor?
My main question though: do you think there's something wrong with using oils on tiny canvasses? I think mine are coming out pretty badly, and not solely as a result of technical inability. What would you recommend? Does size matter?
I'm not even talking about adult women/men. I'm talking about little kids.
Because I think it starts there?
Or are people dressing their little girls in things that reflect grown women's fashions? And is this okay?
I'm simply amazed by the difference because I don't understand why and how this came to be.
Also, what kind of fucking question is that? Ugh.

Caps shield is pretty much front and center.
Which sounds tastier?
Edit: No nuts in the bread is an option, except I'm putting them in because that's how we do 'round this house.
Are there any vegans/ vegetarians on this forum who could recommend a really effective multi-vitamin that includes iron, omega-3s, vitamin D and vitamin B12, among other things? Or one that you've had experience with that made you feel more energized and healthy?
I've tried a few off and on, but I never felt like it was making a difference. I heard something called "Vega Whole Food Health Optimizer" was good, but when I pulled up their website it sort of looked like it might be for dieting, which is not at all what I need.
Or actually, if you know of any super-healthy cheap vegan/veg foods, I'd welcome those as well. I'm gonna try to incorporate more quinoa and kale into my life.
Do you try to finish a book you're reading even if you dislike it very much? Why (not)?
What's the last book you didn't like? How far into it did you start disliking it?
Z. How crackly are you? Do you get up and walk around and sound like a tree snapping and falling over on a bag of loaded mousetraps? What joints do you purposely pop on a regular basis?
E. What are your favorite board and card games? Do you play any of them regularly?
IDK. How crispy crunchy is the best pizza?
Which would you rather see?
how is your day?
eta: holy shit people, i didn't read the books. get over it. has everybody on TQC/in the world read HP? no. i asked a question. sorry for doing that. i didn't know this was a place you could do that.

When was the last time you let someone take advantage of you?
I quit my preschool job to nanny to kids who's mom was unhappy with the preschool (I was unhappy with it too lol), shes cool but it went from being a "watch my kids while I work 7am-5pm" type situation to a "Im going to call you at 9pm on your day off and tell you to bring me toilet paper" type situation and I dont know how to make it clear that I need some fucking time to myself.
To make it worse she is getting divorced and is having trouble with work so she is paying me about half of what we agree upon and I have literally not had a day where I did not run an errand or watch her kids for her in going on a month.
For example, I am watching her kids right now, from 7pm until probably around 4am so she can go have fun, we agreed I would have the daytime off to catch up on errands but she ended up calling me and coming to get me so that I would go to walmart with her so she did not have to deal with the kids on her own.
Im so sick of this but I do not know how to tell her I need some time to myself without offending her or losing my job.
Am I being insensitive?
I just want to go grocery shopping and pay my bills without having to take her kids with me!!!
Does more locks make you feel more or less safe.
My new place has a lock, a deadlock, and a chain, in what is not a bad suburb at all.
Saying "On a scale of one to Chris Brown, how mad are you?"
Aretha Franklin's hat at Pres. Obama's inauguration.
If you could write a letter to yourself five years ago, what would you warn yourself about? In addition to that, want to post a picture of yourself from Kindergarten or just at a young age?
If your answer is N, what kind of donuts should I get at Dunkin Donuts when I go get coffee?
Which of these should I start now?
Are you sad that Borders is closing? I was walking around the store today, and I got really depressed. I love Borders.
I don't think I'm well known here, so I'll say I've been told I would be in Hufflepuff.
Sorry if this has been done recently D:
(*for people not in New England this is what you'd call a liquor store)
When is the last time you looked something up in the phone book?
Do you have special names that you have for places/things? If so what are they?
My mom-in-law likes to call liquor stores by the letters L.S. and if they are discount liquor stores then they are D.L.S.
I've gotten to where when I find out of dates while work I call them "ood" so customers don't hear me ask "hey, have we started up a spot for out of dates?"
I'm worried that when I go to college I'll, idk, not lose control, but that I'll get into the wrong scene or whatever b/c I'm a pretty straitlaced kid.
Like, I'll be a senior in high school this coming school year and people keep inviting me to parties and stuff, and it's just getting harder for me to decline. I'm always tempted to say yes and go. :(
Do you have any advice to help me to avoid going to parties right now?
DK;DC: What are some things you like to put together and eat that others think is weird/gross?
I like to make mac&cheese then put canned tuna fish in it along with a can of cream of mushroom soup. Soo good. I also like to put Sriracha hot sauce in my cottage cheese. :)p In fact, I'll put Sriracha in pretty much anything I eat. It's really good hot sauce.
dk/dc: what is the last thing you ate?
I'm looking at makeup from e.l.f cosmetics right now, and I was wondering if any of you had any experience with this brand?
The products are so cheap, the prices make me suspicious!
I always hear that people hate FB and feel free when they delete their accounts. And they hate their FS and get rid of it because they get abusive questions.
I love both my FB and my FS. They're a good cure for boredom.
What's the most interesting occupation of someone you've dated?
