12:43 I have a job interview in like nine hours also contemplating my hard work to become mentally healthy paying off and I'm confident again :-) good vibes ur way
Hey I am sending you my prayers and luck for an interview try 2 live by the idea of fate and that all things happen for a reason. If ur meant to get the job interview you will. Just be very polite and make sure to follow up in the next few days afterwards! I hope it is a cool job. The only job I ever had before internet stuff was at a chocolate factory/candy shop. It wasn’t as cool as it would seem but I did get to eat free candy anytime. They had these chocolate covered gummy bears that were truly next level I used 2 go off on those. However I was just alone in catacombs of the factory cleaning up and taking out the trash and folding up boxes and it was always a bit dark and depressing. Once the managers left I would go upstairs and hide in their office a lot to pass the time. Eventually I didn’t want to work there anymore but I was too scared to quit so I just stopped going! Never do that! If you have the opportunity, make sure you find a job that is somewhat interesting or fun to you. I think my ideal job besides art is working in a library or being a sportswriter. Maybe a psychologist. Lots of good things to do out there. Again, good luck. I think you will get the job, keep bein confident! Good mental health is the key to everything else in life! Proud of ya!
健部（1990）によれば、ブリューナクはアイルランドの神々トゥアハ・デ・ダナーン（Tuatha Dé Danaan）の持つエリン四秘宝の一つで、北方のゴリアス（Gorias）の都でエスラス（Esras）によって守られていた魔槍。トゥアハ・デ・ダナーンがフォウォール（Fomór）族と戦ったモイトゥラの戦い２の折、神々の王ヌァザとエスラスによって全知全能の光明神ルー・ラヴァーダ（Lugh Lámhfhata）に手渡された。「投げると稲妻となって敵を死に至らしめる灼熱の槍」であるともいう（p.91）。
また、健部の言うような武器がケルトにあったのは、どうやら本当らしい。グリーン（1997）によれば、アルスターの王コホナール・マックネサがこの武器によって命を落としている。「コホナールは、レンスターの王、メアス・ゲァグラの頭からつくった脳球（人間の脳に石灰を混ぜ、固めたもの）によって死を迎える。この奇妙な、しかし効力のある武器が、悪業に対する復讐として、ケヤト・マックマーガハによってアルスターの王に投げつけられたのである」（p.50）。コットレルにも、コンホヴァル・マク・ネサ（Chonchobar Mac Nessa）の項に類似した記述がある。｢やがて、コンホヴァル自身は魔法の投石器で殺されることになる。これが、殺害されたレンスターの王[マク・ダ・ソー]の脳から彼自身が作り出した有名な「脳爆弾」である。投石器で打たれたこの爆弾は、コンホヴァル王の頭蓋を貫通せず、中にとどまったため、侍医は激しい鍛錬や興奮を避けるように忠告する。だが数年後、コンホヴァルはあることで思わず激怒し、そのため、「脳爆弾」が彼に死をもたらすのであった」（p.245）。
※追記：「太陽弾」云々の出典が判明したので、一応追記しておく。それは、『聖剣伝説』の参考文献一覧に載る Gertrude Jobes のDictionary of Mythorogy Folklore and Symbols （1962）で、同書の"TATHLUM"の項に"In Celtic Mythology the magic weapon of Lugh. Round stone with which he killed Balor. The sun ball.“（p.1538）とある。直訳すれば、「ケルト神話におけるLughの魔法の武器で、彼がBalorを殺した際に用いた円形の石。太陽弾」となり、『聖剣伝説』の記述がこれをそのまま踏襲していることが分かる。
まず興味深いのはヒット数。そもそも「ブリューナク」という名称は、前述した通り、健部（1990）のみが挙げていたものである。それが、オートクレールを遥かに凌ぐ1900ヒット。大したものだ。しかし、これだけ知名度が上がった原因の一端は、『聖剣伝説』（1997）にもあると思われる。ケルト神話に登場する本家「ブリューナク」について扱っているページのうち、６つのページが「切っ先が５本ある」という同書のみにあらわれる記述を採用しているのがその証拠だ。しかも「ブリューナク」について詳しく扱っているページほど、この「切っ先５本」説を採用している（例えば『Dictionary of Pandaemonium』、『ウィキペディア』など…リンク貼るのは面倒なので各自ググって頂きたい）。これは、ブリューナクの形状に関して、他に具体的な記述のある文献が存在しないことが原因だろう。『聖剣伝説』の影響力は侮れないのである。

A little drabble I wrote in my creative writing class. It’s the summer of 69 and Fitz is shipping out to Vietnam. It’s pretty short but the girl who peer-reviewed it said she cried so I guess it’s good.
You’re sitting in the pilot’s chair when a pair of hands cover your mouth and eyes. Initially you jump at the contact but, after hearing the child-like giggles, struggle to push Peter’s hands off your face.
“I’ll let you go if you promise to keep quiet,” he insists. You mumble ‘whatever’ into his palm and he releases your head. “Okay, guess what?” He sounds as giddy as a little kid on Christmas and, knowing him, it can’t be anything good.
“I totally pranked Gamora with this,” to which he holds up a permanent marker. When your brain finally puts two and two together, your eyes widen in shock. He drew on her while she was asleep.
“YOU DID WHAT?!” you shout, knowing his ass was dead. Peter’s had flies up to cover your mouth again as he shushes you panickedly.
“Be quiet, Jesus…”
“Let me ask you something, are you trying to get murdered or are you just an idiot?” He opens his mouth to answer but it’s too late. A bloodcurdling scream that would make children run to their mommies echoes throughout the ship.
The man himself’s face gets paler and you can’t help but shake your head, laughing a little.
“Oh man, you are so done for,” you sigh. And, just as you finish speaking, the green woman busts through the door. You can feel the rage rolling off her in waves, the fire in her eyes blazing, and her teeth bared.
The words “I <3 Star Lord” are written across her forehead in sloppy, black ink.
There comes a moment in every Larries life… when they stop and realize it’s almost 3am… and they’ve got their phone an inch away from their face… zoomed in on a picture of rainbow bears dressed in ridiculous costumes… in all seriousness trying to decipher the message they mean to convey…
And they ask themself, “what the fuck has my life come to?”
All aboard the angst train, we’re taking Bruce not having any memory of his kids and running with it.
So here’s the deal. Bruce is a new guy who wants to leave his dark past behind, that’s clear. But he’s still Bruce. So when he hears he has children, his first response is “I have to get in touch with them, they must be worried sick.”
So he calls Alfred for the first time in a month. Asks if he can have the addresses of his children’s boarding schools (which is where the media thinks they are, and as a result, Bruce does to). And he sends letters. Asking how they’ve been. Apologizing that he’s been out of touch. Asking if they want to enroll in Gotham schools instead so they can be close by.
Cass gets her letter and drops it, because Bruce would never send her something like this, not when he knows how hard it is for her to read. He would call. He always calls. And even though Alfred told her what happened, that letter is enough to tell her that her father is as good as dead.
Tim sits in his bunk and reads his, wonders what it would be like if he took Bruce up on the offer, went home, went back to school, tried to be normal again. If he could just forget about the life like Bruce has and just become Tim. And he sees the scars on his torso and thinks he’d fail if he tried.
Near the post office, Damian curls up into a ball next to Goliath and sobs into his fur until Maya finds him. She doesn’t ask. But she knows what it looks like when one has lost a father. So she sits down next to him, forgets for a second that this boy killed her own, and sings a lullaby her mother taught her.
Dick and Jason do not get letters. But flowers are sent to their graves.
