Pinned post You may also follow me on this account since I may be more active there ^^ it's easier for me to find other ffxiv friends. I'll mostly be using this one for more personal posts, irl stuff.

I"m looking for a new instance for my main gaming mastodon account. Preferably one with a heavy presence. Does anyone have any suggestions? I mostly wanna post about ff14 but I also wanna be free to post the occasional other thing too.

My assignment at the animal shelter might be ending at the end of this month. This was the perfect job for me and I’m really upset by it. I know I’ll get staffed somewhere else so it’s not the lack of employment I’m worried about. It’s just that I’m afraid the next job won’t suit me as well as this one did. I loved my work, and I loved my coworkers. I hate waiting for the uncertain, not know knowing what kinds of people I’m going to be working with at the next place or how I’m going to fare. I think working an abusive job will have lasting scars on me for the rest of my working life.

I’m terrified of working for another Dr. M. I know I’ll never let myself put up with that abuse again, but the fact that it’s a very possible risk now is going to haunt me.

I think I'll feel better when I move out of Medford.

I’ve been playing with HTML code for 3 days now and it’s really bringing back fond memories lol. I’m working on my neocities now. It’s taking forever for me to get anything done because I’m just playing with code and experimenting to see what everything does and how I can mess with it. I break something every 3 seconds it's great.

Mild complaining. Got my fee fees hurt by a stranger online 

Meh, deleted the post. Not worth it if it’s still gonna give me the flak I was trying to avoid by putting it on an obscure account.

Mild complaining. Got my fee fees hurt by a stranger online 

My god I just post one mildly cringe edgy joke on my other account, thinking no one would care and this dude comes out of the wood work just to come at me about it. My god. See a doctor about that stick in your anus. I got too comfortable on here thinking because it’s small I’d get no negative attention but there’s no real escape from assholes on the internet. 😑

twitter mention 

Damn I guess I really do have to prepare to leave twitter. I planned on staying as long as possible but like... the site my end up so broken it will be comepletely unusable. And that's assuming the FCC doesn't get involved. Hot damn.

New job; positive 

My new job is good and everyone is so nice to me. I'm free to ask questions and everyone just seems to be of the same goal of helping these animals. There's no drama, and I was told that they were greatful for the work that I put in here. I think I love it here, actually. The polar opposite of my old job.

Self affirmation; work anxiety 

You will not put up with workplace abuse. You will leave the FIRST time your manager insults you, raises their voice, or makes a snide comment. The second you feel like you’re walking on eggshells, the second you are made to feel small, you are walking out.

The Job Searching Saga 

Just got a callback and a job offer for a job at an animal shelter in Pheonix. $17 per hour 8am-1pm Sunday-Friday.

I should be excited but I am traumatized. I'm so afraid of this job ending up as abusive as my old vet tech job. I'm trying to comfort myself by telling myself that I will not stay in an abusive job as long as I did the last one.

At the first sign of abuse I'm gone. I will never let a manager insult me or yell at me again. I will walk out. The first sign. I have to hold myself to that promise.

Mel's parents told me that since it's a county/government job, they tend to take issues with workplace abuse and discrimination very seriously. That gives me some comfort.

Selfie;job searching;interview day 

I landed a second interview. Let’s see how that goes.

Selfie;job searching;interview day 

I hate business casual. Not sure how they feel about tattoos or septum piercings so took it out and covered my tats just in case.

I think I look good, even if there is no way to give a business casual outfit personality. EVEN if I look like the personified version of a gentrified bodega.

Job searching; good news 

I finally got an interview tomorrow with a contracting company as an administrative assistant. $20 per hour, weekends off, good benefits. Not getting my hopes up because I did that with the last job and was sorely disappointed.

The guy on the phone seemed really nice. I checked them out on Glassdoor and saw a lot of positive reviews and a high rating. Fingers crossed that I get it.

Vent; job searching 

I have sent out hundreds of applications by now none will call me back or offer me an interview. I’ve never had this problem looking for a job before. I don’t understand what I’m doing wrong. The only thing I can possibly imagine is that most of these applications request my ethnicity. I always refuse to answer but now I’m about to straight up lie and say that I’m white.

I fucking hate Medford. If I was king of the world I would nuke this fucking town until it was a radiated smoldering crater.

I’ll celebrate Independence Day when Puerto Rico has her own Independence Day. 🇵🇷

If they brought back segregation, what would that even look like for me? Being black in a Re-segregated nation? How many people would defend us? How many people would embrace it?

I can’t even imagine it beyond stories my mom told me.

How the fuck am I supposed to act and behave normal while the country I live in is talking about bringing back segregation? I feel sick.

job searching ; hyperbolic self harm. Not serious. But i do not feel like censoring my frustration 

I don't want to watch these stupid "job finding tip" videos. I don't wanna listen to this stupid fucking buttoned up language. I don't want to write a stupid goddamn cover letter that says all of the SAME SHIT as my fucking resume because apparently every employer in the world has Alzheimer's and needed me to expend all my time and energy saying the SAME EXACT SHIT TWICE.

I hate the fake smiles, I hate the fake ass questions, I hate this stupid pointless dance. I WOULD RATHER POUR MERCURY AND LEMON JUICE INTO MY OPEN EYEBALLS.

i didn't get that stupid job so now I have to sift through a bunch of stupid job finding sites with a 1000000 postings and I have to figure out what's a scam and what isn't. I hate job searching. I hate interviews. I loathe Cover Letters.

I hate this stupid game and the stupid language and the stupid buzzwords. It's a massive, humiliating, degrading, waste of time.

That job that gray recommended to me was absolutely perfect for me. It's not fair. Now I'm facing all of these jobs where instead of just being on phones for 1-2 hours a day, I have to take 40-60 back to back calls all day every day.

If I have to take 40-60 calls in one day I'm gonna fucking kill myself.

The supreme court said it was a first amendment constitutional right to be able to protest in front of the houses of abortion givers. Which means its a right to protest in front of anyone's home.

Don't listen to these fools. Violence and riots is the only thing they will listen to. people in power are not moved to change unless they themselves stand to benefit. And if benefitting looks like not storming their homes and breaking their windows, so be it.
