Still have not been to a ‘nix game! Have been to a few Hurricanes games but not since old Traitor Barrett took up with your filthy blues

Wellington is awful. I’m not sure now why we came back. It was for some reasons and they are probably good ones. Hopefully some day I will remember

Maybe I feel differently about it because all my friends are mothers who have been forced to re train, except for the doctors. But…that shit has been HARD over the last couple of years.

My older son wants to make some money in finance and then have a good enough private income he can do what he really wants to do, which is be a secondary school teacher

I think the nature of the economy for young people today has stripped them of the hope of a job for life, rather than an endless grind trying to find things machines can’t do better and then successfully compete against all the others in the same boat to land a stressful underpaid job with no health insurance

might be more difficult with capitalism shoved down throats since birth, but being stripped of a job "for life" sounds pretty great. people are considering how to be happy instead of how to have the "trappings" of ostensible happiness.

fuck, a consultant was late to a meeting today so i offered to share my screen with the group and led the meeting by default. the consultant showed 30 mins later and i went to a new window to talk smack about her to tommy without remembering my screen was still shared. this happened almost two hours ago and i still wan die. my boss was there and everything. fuck, man lolololol

honestly cannot stand this woman--so overpaid and provides little value. the group i am in--that she "leads"--had an off-site retreat (just a glorified meeting) a few weeks back and it was conveniently scheduled to be at her home almost 20 minutes away. that fell through so it was at her new condo not too far.

the agenda said we were all supposed to "be fed spiritually...by the hospitality of working in a retreat setting" except we were sitting on her rooftop patio with no shade all afternoon with no access to a bathroom. we had to go down seven floors to a coffee shop next to her place and when one person went around lunchtime they (she brought her husband out to join the mtg, for some reason) suggested we all try and go since they didn't want to go back and forth letting us all into the building.

my mood definitely suffered for that! not just the bathroom thing, but all of it. i cannot stand (who can?) feeling trapped in the heat plus i was riding the crimson wave

didn't like her before (or after) any of that mess, though. she says craps like "the work is the process and the process is the work" and people find that deep somehow.

the consultant said something later about "noise" and noticing distractions in the space and said it's just another thursday in america.

ya know, at least no one saw me taking a dump or putting in a tampon on camera

at least i have that and one day this won't be so embarrassing anymore. at least it wasn't a coworker that i talked about. anything helps to not feel this way! i just want to assume no one saw a thing.

i have a bathroom off my home office. Literally 6 ft from my desk. Occasionally I have to put my headphones down during a meeting and use it. Too many meetings per day to not eventually have to go. i'm terrified that sooner or later i won't have my Mute button on and the bathroom sounds will make it into a meeting.

I am feeling serious second hand embarrassment for you! Doesn't sound like it will impact your job at all, yeah?

the consultant sent me an email that i still can't bring myself to read. i had my friend read it and he said it was long and the end said something about this being an opportunity for growth for me. bitch, please. all i am taking from this is never offer to share my screen

my boss and i have a rolling agenda for our weekly meetings and this morning i noticed a new agenda item of "meeting etiquette" but it was later removed by her and she hasn't said a word about the incident. i'm sure when we meet virtually monday morning we'll just look back on this and laugh.....! ;D

i've been [firmly] invited to this gig next week with my band

i haven't been to a show with them yet [but they go semi-often] and they're super nice about wanting me to come along. but my BRAIN ISN'T NORMAL so i can't process that it's a normal social gathering and no one hates me

and it's a shoegaze band so woo

ahhh

There's 2 shows I want to see in November but I'm close to 5 hours away from the venue, so it won't happen

i guess i think it's an interesting thought exercise to picture a band having never ever seen them. no idea who's playing guitar or what the name of the singer is or anything

like, as a contrast to us being aware that madame zuzu's exists and shit

is it?

i feel like it's a pretty common thing to enjoy a band and not know what they look like. especially older bands...and maybe new ones, too.
