Hey don’t make fun of the fact that my car has been equipped with short term emergency life supplies ever since the last time I read cujo ! D:

Yeah too bad nobody has told all of those anxious people that the metal prongs of your headrest are designed to serve this exact same purpose and they come free with the car in an easy built in and conveinent location

My life feels so good right now that to try to talk about it seems sickening -- and that's with having broken up with the latest boyfriend in the past week. Part of the reason it feels so good -- I value myself enough not to put up with bullshit!

There's many vectors in which I'm still improving - still trying to improve - that will never end. But things are already so, so really great that the improvement is just exciting, interesting; a challenge I can't wait to meet.

Life is great. :)

You're correct.

My work treats me so well that it only took me about 5 years to realize I was a total idiot for trying to complain about most aspects of it.

I call that process “growing up.” But seriously, you wanna come at corporate jobs? Let me just say 10 federal holidays, 15 VAC, unlimited sick, 7.5% 401(k) match, ability to wfh at will, and that’s before I have to even try to stop you with the things I like about the actual work I do. My sister is telling me she is thinking about leaving the restaurant industry and “selling out.”

I said, “what is it, the regular hours or the dependable paycheck that sold you?”

Categorize me cap’n, semantics make me sily

I have talked further with Cute Guy and remain intolerably enthused for this first date. Let it be noted. If Dallas scores first in the first half then he will change my brakes for me. If the Eagles score first in the second half I will cook him short rib. If both happen he will pay the check.

This is the first guy I’ve met who wasn’t the kind of idiot who would try to get a kiss out of that bet in oh well I don’t know it doesn’t matter — the point is that this guy made some smart bets, people. I remain interested, which is quite the feat

dude, like, cheer up hubski. i had my 1 1/2 hours of interviews today. i said i felt i'd need to be humble in this new role, that i'd be out of my area of expertise and would need to recognize that. i said i really wanted the job. i said that i'm really interested in change lately, that i'm embracing and seeking out change in my life.

i'll find out in one week approximately
