|I can't get a job unless I apply for a job.

I can't apply for a job unless I format my resume. I can't format my resume unless I have LaTeX and I don't have it because I don't have a MathLAN account anymore and for some reason I can't install TeX and LaTeX on my own computer! Fuck! I'm getting my MathLAN account back, because it's become apparent that I can't live without it, but I have to get my password through the U.S. mail because that's how my professor prefers to distribute them. So in a few days, hopefully I'll be able to see what my resume looks like typeset. I have the LaTeX file all done already, though I'll be surprised if it compiles first try, let alone looks right. I'm pretty rusty.
There are three jobs that I can apply for as soon as I get the resume done, but there are others that I need an online portfolio for. And I can't make the portfolio the way I want to make it unless I can install the trial versions of the Studio MX programs, and for some reason they don't want to install on my roommate's computer, on which he was nice enough to give me an account. And I can't try again until he frees up some space, which he can't do until he moves a lot of stuff around, which he can't do until he borrows his friend's FireWire hard drive.
So, yeah. Hurrying up and waiting.
