  • GOTD: It's a beautiful Sunday and I'm going to go work in a building all afternoon without windows...

    • Make your IT rep happy and DON'T LOSE/FORGET YOUR PASSWORDS. It's not usually a big deal, but I'm working from home today and it's screwing up everything. I kinda just want to punch everyone through their computers.

      • Didn't get my dream job because it went to someone who isn't unemployed. All I want is a fucking job, preferably in engineering, because that's the degree I got (and am still paying on. Thanks for deregulating tuition, TX.) At this point, I just need money coming into the bank account.
        I can't get experience because everyone wants experience. Can't get my PE (that everyone wants) until at least April, if they accept my (yup, you guessed it) experience record in my application. Fucking catch-22s everywhere. I keep getting into positions that end up being resume stains because I get laid off within 2 years. If I can't keep a job, it looks bad on my resume, and a bad resume means not getting more experience... I can't be the only person getting fucked over like this.

        • Catching a cold. Stupid cold. Even worse? I have a list...

          Went to my brothers house for his wedding (this is a BIG YAY! ). Period started. I had no ibuprofen at the house I was staying at. I did have some in my truck which was not parked where I was staying since I walked over. So no sleep all night cause my back was hurting. (In retrospect I should have gotten up, gotten dressed, and walked the 7 blocks each direction to get it out of my truck. I would have been happier.) Next day feel myself coming down with a sore throat. I'm not at home so I don't have my normal teas that I like for such things. Don't sleep all night again, now due to sore throat AND the fact that said sore throat was making me swallow about 3 times a minute which means I swallowed enough air to give myself indigestion. And then I have now spent the last 2 days blowing my nose non stop, my nose is getting raw and I have sinus pressure. And I had to drive home 6 hours today.

          Stupid stupid cold.

            • Unfortunate side effect of working from home: a nap sounds sooooo good right now.

              • ARGH; am starting a new website and am making tons of content for it and my 2000+ word post from today got deleted and is NOT RECOVERABLE IN ANY WAY. And I really really don't want to make a new one. I'm gonna start making all the posts in Word and then just copy/paste so that doesn't happen again I guess. So irritated.

                • Kinda sucks going to a job fair and being told by almost every company that you're overqualified.

                  • overqualified "should" mean you could have the job but the pay would not match your qualifications. I know it does not work that way though. Best of luck finding a job though!! Think positive!

                        I've been struggling in that same crappy gap of overqualified and underexperienced. I'm at "entry level" for senior/management tier jobs now, and I don't want to take junior positions anymore but am getting shortlisted but not hired (meaning I am just falling short). I'm hoping I break in soon so I can stop doing the crap temp work. I have some good prospects right now. Fingers crossed that we both get awesome jobs soon.

                        • I've had a cough for about 2 weeks, now. Seems to get better and then worse. better worse. Coughed so hard last night, my ribs now hurt on my right side even when I just breathe. Because of the hurricane, my doctor and the medical aid units were closed Monday and yesterday. Finally called doctor this morning, she won't be in until noon. Haven't been able to work out in two weeks, but I think I've lost weight because I have no appetite. I don't have a scale though.

                          • My gripe of the day is that my sugar is in the toilet because when we were off for the storm in the East, I ate like crap and now its hard to get my sugar regulated again! You'd think I'd learn!

                            • Damn you, hormones. I was feeling mostly normal for PMS week and now it's shark week and I'm suddenly feeling stress and depressed about totally not major things.

                              • Dear Neighbor,

                                I hate your horrible little yappy dogs Sauron and Shelob and you are the sole reason I am not having Halloween at my house this year. I am going to a restaurant far away instead so that I don't have to open the door to you standing there with your dogs dressed up like angels and you shouting Trick Or Treat.

                                Love,
