Dear blag,

Man my paycheck from 4 weeks ago STILL is not in my bank account. I'm overdrawn and I am this fucking close to suing payroll. I haven't been eating more than once a day because I just plain haven't had the goddamn money. I've been subsisting just by eating whatever unsellable items are behind the guest service desk at work, mooching off my roomie and friends, humiliating and degrading shit like that. I am bumming cigarettes that I would normally be buying for myself.

I am a much happier person than I used to be, but man, it's shit like this that makes me fucking wonder why.

SO frustrated right now.  I am visiting the university of Michigan this weekend for "visiting days" but I will be missing the last day because my boss wouldn't give me the day off from work.  On that last day there is a internship/job fair that I really want to go to.  Employers like JSTOR, ProQuest, GOOGLE, fucking, GOOGLE, the CIA, and other places it would be really awesome to have an internship or job.  I feel like I am really missing out on some great opportunities to work a 4 hour shift at my crappy job.  But it is a crappy job I need right now.  We are so poor, I don't even know how we are going to pay for the things we need to do in the next few months.

I have potentially good news! So you remember the property management company I was temping for on and off, before the pizza job, between the lighting company laying me off every few months, that wanted to hire me but then I waited too long to answer and they hired somebody else? (Of course you do, what else do you have to do but keep track of my employment status, right?) Anyway, at the location where I temped originally, like last April, the girl who I replaced for a month while she was on vacation just resigned, and I have gotten a phone call and 2 emails saying "call me!" about it, and I did. And the HR Lady is going to talk to the Vice President of Virginia Offices about hiring me there. And while it is like 25 miles away in friggin' Tysons Corner, VA, they would almost double the salary I'm making now, which sounded great at the time when I started the pizza job but damn does biweekly pay take some getting used to.

(And y'know how Tania's posts are supposed to faster and faster as they go? Read this like that too.)

I was having a really good ride home this evening, a bit of a tailwind, nice and warm and a beautiful sunset over The Peak District. Alas, as my life has to be shitty right now, it rapidly went down. Firstly some shit in an Audi decided that they're far too important to observe a modicum of safety on the road and nearly left hooked me, I then got a phone call from a company I interviewed for on Monday to reject me. Again I was "suitably qualified", but "just not what we're looking for".

I really can't help but feel completely useless these days. I know I have necessary skills, I know I work hard, I know that I can do as good a job if not better as any of the other candidate but somewhere along the line I seem to have lost any value at all in the workforce. If you had told me ten years ago that I was going to be washed up at the age of 35 I wouldn't have believed you, but after many applications and enquiries over the past three months, it seems almost inevitable. I'll have to start practicing my "would you like fries with that" if McDonalds will have me.

in friggin' Tysons Corner,

I work in Tysons.  If you get the job let me take you to lunch one day.  I'm not trying to be a creeper or anything I just get bored of eating with same people all the time, and it's literally my job to take people out to eat.  

Edit:  I should add this is applicable to any forumite in the Tysons area.

Yeah, Ann Arbor.  Most of the employers have a contact email for the recruiter, so I guess I will spend tomorrow writing letters explaining that I can't be there, but totally want in on internship/job opportunities at X company.  It would be so much easier if I could just meet them.

I have initiated a policy of calling people out on/challenging people's bullshit. Partly because I find it amusing (I'm trolling a girl I used to work with by providing helpful relationship advice when she wants "you-go-girl" type advice, and then again by linking her to informative and helpful websites about weddings when she clearly just wants attention and ego-stroking) but also because if I'm going to be friends with people I don't think I have to allow them to be retarded.

Totally tell her how and why she is wrong. Try not to be a dick about it though.

I work at 6am 7 hours away from Ann Arbor, so I have to leave on Sunday.  Also I asked my boss if I could have the day off so calling in is probably not a good idea. They extended me an offer of financial aid today though! except I can't see it yet.  The email told me to login to the website, the website "opens" at 6am.  I will be at work then, grrr.  I don't want to wait to know how much.  I really hate websites with hours, I know, I know site maintenance, but commmmmon.

This Week's Blog Post

--So I'm on spring break. Like five of my friends went to Boston this week to visit our buddy at Harvard and I used to be sad about this until I realized that they are there for three days and they are going to be doing nothing and they spent too much money on their plane tickets because they didn't let me book things. So I was just like, fuck you guys! I'm gonna finish my goddamn EP! And Then I Did

--I accidentally fell in love with my best friend but I think I'll be okay.

--I have had In-N-Out thrice, I'm going to have Chipotle twice and I haven't gotten Carl's Jr yet

Yeah, Ann Arbor. 

If you're going to be eating on campus, try Mia Za's. They give you a scantron to fill out and its a make your own pizza/pasta/salad/sandwich type place. It was my go-to place when I was going to UM. Or Flat Top, its a create your own stir fry type of place.

I didn't really see Ann Arbor the first time because I was semi-unconcious for the whole time until someone presented me with a burrito the size of my head, and then I think I passed out from exhaustion trying to eat that sucker.

"Some perceive an unpleasant "soapy" taste or a rank smell and avoid the leaves.[7] The flavours have also been compared to those of the stink bug, and similar chemical groups are involved (aldehydes). Belief that aversion is genetically determined may arise from the known genetic variation in taste perception of the synthetic chemical phenylthiocarbamide; however, no specific link has been established between coriander and a bitter taste perception gene."

Oh yeah, I'd forgotten about that. I think you've brought that up before, now that I think about it.

Neko, replace the sour cream with guacamole and that's pretty much what I get. Sometimes steak, sometimes without the corn, but usually it's that.

Yeah Sean, c'mon down.  Seriously, I get told I don't feed enough people, give me an excuse.  For you, I'll make sure to bring lots of original pressings of old DC hardcore.

I dressed really well today, if I do say so myself. Also I went to a job fair at school and this black dude told me that I was, "swagged the fuck out." At lunch, another person told me that I should be a model because I "look fresh everyday."
So that was awesome.

Realized a few weeks ago I am probably the happiest I've ever been. Not a toothy-grinny type happiness (although that kind certainly comes into play from time to time), but more a prevailing/systemic contentedness with how life is and not so much worry spent on what life could be or isn't. Life is totally good. It's been totally good for, like, months now. The last time I was this consistently happy was probably early/mid-childhood, and really all I remember from childhood is the bubble baths and getting shampoo in my eye and wailing about it so my mom would come in and pay attention to me. (It's been awhile, my mother no longer helps me bathe and also I have not yet figured out in my adult life how to draw a bubble bath where the bubbles don't disintegrate in less than 10-15 minutes, is there some trick to it I'm unaware of or is my childhood nostalgia for bubble baths making them seem better than they really are waaah)

I guess it's more than a little banal to say, but it really, really took me by surprise, realizing how good life can be. I kind of had no idea. I spend most of my time reading and I took up hiking and I am starting to make friends, like other normal human people seem to do. I've been writing every day for well over a year now and it has not driven me crazy, the way it can sometimes. My teachers don't resent me for being the smart kid who never shows up (actually/proverbially). I've mostly quit my anxious tics (skin picking, hair pulling, blah blah) and I've learned not to be so hard on myself if/when I fall back into it. I still mostly assume people do not like me even when I have overwhelming evidence to the contrary. But, y'know, baby steps, people.

In my own job news: I got turned down for a job that I thought was in the bag because I had too much experience... This is pretty damned frustrating. JUST LET ME GET A FOOT IN THE DOOR. I PROMISE TO GIVE YOU 2 MONTHS SOLID WORK BEFORE I CLIMB THE LADDER.

I used to think so also, but they have new and improved chicken tenders and they are to die for
That was my birthday meal this year

Getting in on this conversation late, but fuck it. Not going to lie I'd probably eat those fuckin things like 24/7.

Dear blag,

I am honestly within inches of quitting music for any purpose other than my own personal enjoyment. 3 years of active performing, a 6 month stint on Albanian reality TV, and never once have I ever been paid any more than $50. Even though a good few times I've been promised more, I've always been stiffed. Literally every single time.

My best friend and writing partner doesn't even want to practice anymore lately, I honestly can't remember the last time we practiced anything other than a bunch of blues shit that any of the old farts at open mic can play. I can't remember the last time our practice session went longer than ten minutes. I don't even enjoy playing with him as much anymore. I just haven't been able to stop myself from going out at every single chance I get just to get a quick set in, praying to god that somebody will hear it and like it enough to get us a gig. We've got one coming up on the 9th, though, and I'm not sure if we're even going to be worth hearing just because I know we're going to be incredibly rusty at playing together.

I'm trying hard not to cry about this. So far I'm successful with at least that, but it looks like giving up on this whole thing once Lukas is in the Air Force is probably gonna be my only realistic option. I have no way of realistically getting this off the ground as it is right now.

Jimmy holy god I'm glad you have finally got something you're happy with. You've been putting up with a shit situation for a long time. Please tell me this means what I think it means about your music!
