the office 6

  • Tangled Fans: Oh my god! Why does Frozen get a big budget sequel when all Tangled gets is a TV series on Disney channel! Disney is completely neglecting Tangled! This is so unfair!
  • Princess and the Frog, Wreck It Ralph, and Big Hero 6 Fans: *look into the camera like they're on the office*
  • Inspector Megure: *arrive at a crime scene, see a dead body and start looking around* So where is he?
  • Random police officer: Where is who?
  • Inspector Megure: Edogawa Conan. If there is a dead body, he is bound to be around here somewhere.
  • Random police officer: Is this Conan person a potential suspect?
  • Inspector Megure: No. He is a 6 year old kid.
  • Random police officer: Why would a 6 year old kid be at a crime scene?
  • Inspector Megure: You'd be surprised. I'm working under the theory he is either an actual angel of death in human form sent to punish me for some pass transgression. Or the most prolific serial killer Japan has ever seen.
  • Random police officer: Inspector?
  • Megure: *sigh* Nevermind. What do you have?
  • Suddenly from just off scene: Arere?

I just finished watching the episode where Jim and Pam get married and honestly I think I’m gonna throw up. I can’t stop crying.

Pretty much the day he met her 😭😭😭 fuck you ❤️❤️❤️❤️😭

A Guide to Writing Your Resume

I recently took a very helpful youth professional development course and learned some great things I’d love to share with everyone. This post will be especially helpful for first time resume writers, but there might be something in it for everyone. 

1. What is a Resume? 

A resume is a brief summary of your abilities, experience, and skills. It’s essentially a personal advertisement for your professional career, an opportunity to convince the employer that you are worth interviewing. 

  • The average employer will only take about 15-20 seconds to read your resume.
  • It’s important that your resume is neat so the reader can find important information quickly. 
  • Limit the resume to one page. 
  • Standard font size is 11-12, but you can play with the font or margins to fit everything. 

2. Headings 

  • Start with your personal information at the top of the first page (name, address, phone number, and email address). 
  • Keep the header centered and your name on top in BIG LETTERS.

3. Education 

  • If you are still in school or have little professional experience, this will likely be the first section in your resume. 
  • Document your education and graduation year.
  • Include the location (city, state), but do not include the school address. 
  • If you attend a school with a College Preparatory Curriculum, you may list that as a bullet underneath. If you are taking Honors or AP classes (or an international equivalent), feel free to list that as well. 

4. Professional Experience 

  • List your work experience in reverse chronological order - start with your most recent experience, and work backwards. 
  • Include the employer name, city, state, and position title for each. Again, no addresses.
  • Record your dates of employment consistently, using a format like June 2016 - August 2015, or 6/15 - 8/15. Staying consistent will make your resume professional. 
  • Place current jobs in the present tense, past jobs in the past tense. 
  • Write short phrases, not full sentences (”performed experiments”, not “I performed experiments”). Start each description with an action word that describes your skills, responsibilities, or accomplishments. 
  • Make sure you are specific about your responsibilities and don’t undersell yourself!

5. Skills 

  • Most commonly listed skills are computer programs and softwares you are comfortable with, and languages you are fluent/proficient in. 
  • Be honest! If you say you’re fluent in Spanish and you’re not, but your employer hires you for your Spanish abilities…. someone isn’t going to be pleased. 
  • List skills that are relevant to your job - patience might be a good skill for working with children, while organized might be more suitable for an office setting. 

6. Honors & Awards/Extracurriculars

  • List any honors or awards you have earned, including a brief explanation if the nature of the award is unclear. 
  • List any activities that you have been involved in, making sure to include years of participation (again, be consistent with formatting). These can be in-school or outside-of-school activities.

7. General & Miscellaneous

  • Some safe fonts: Times New Roman, Garamond, Calibri, or Book Antiqua.
  • Make sure your email is professional! This has been repeated to death but it’s so, so, so important. 
  • Likewise, if you list your personal cellphone number, make sure your voicemail message is appropriate. When in doubt, just revert back to the standard voicemail greeting. 

I hope this was helpful for anyone just starting out with their resume. Please share this for those who need it. Best of luck!

Admin Sloth’s rant:
So after moving to my new place (nearer to the office) 6 months ago… I never knew this apartment had a hidden locker box behind the staircase (there is another postbox at everyone’s door). Was wondering why my bills always comes so late and usually it’s already a bright coloured warning letter by then. I just found out about the locker box after an online shop owner contacted the post office about a parcel that never reached me. They said ‘it might be hidden inside due to the post box downstairs being too full’ and I went: 'I have a post box… DOWNSTAIRS?!’

So today I went to open the pandora box that had been stealing my mails and OUT FLOWED A HUGE BUNCH OF EVERYTHING. I even needed a plastic bag to haul everything back into my apartment….

And within the mountain of envelopes… I FOUND THIS!!!! Christmas postcards from Zen and the RFA! Whyisn'tityoosungsob

No wonder Zen was asking if I received anything from Cheritz during the entire Christmas month last time… I’m so sorry for the late appreciation post, dear Zen and the team! Thank you so much for the postcard Cheritz, I love you guys to bits!!

P/S: Cheritz must have sent these postcards to all VIP members *v* Do support Cheritz by purchasing their goods when you are able to! I had to save up for it too ( ˃̶̤ ·̫ ˂̶̤ ) but totally worth it!!
