Who knows what number in the series it actually is. Or if there even is a series. I don't remember the last time I was able to scrape together a fictional story of any kind. Maybe the "untitled" thing that I dug up and posted a few weeks ago--yet even then I couldn't come up … Continue reading Random craps #450.
Don't answer that. Anyways, this is something I'm very much interested in hearing people's varied feedback on. At work, I'm marginally involved in hiring. I'm not a manager so I do not directly hire (and have zero desire to ever do so--I don't want to be blamed for the stinkers), but I do review applications … Continue reading Would you hire me for a job?
No, seriously. Blogger Jewish Young Professional (not a dating site) has issued the Anti-Self-Deprecation Challenge, and I thought, why not rise to the occasion? On the other hand, she has issued this challenge previously, so it's taken a year or more for me to think of something. Y'all know it's hard for me to say … Continue reading And now for something REALLY different.
Just a good old fashioned hard drive harvest that I can't think of a title for. The blizzard drowns out the sound and fury. A madman walks blindly through the snowstorm, flailing and sweeping the heavy flakes which heed him not. A candle might burn only inches from him, but he'll never know. Meanwhile, a … Continue reading untitled
One of my many regrets in life is not being a better friend to others when I was growing up. I think of people I picked on and worry about what lasting damage I did; of certain people I ditched for what I thought was better; of people I lost contact with out of lack … Continue reading A friend in need… needs a friend, indeed.
Just a quick late-night follow-up rant to this one about family drama... Please don't feel compelled to comment--it's just the same old, same from me--you don't need to humor me. There is some poor soul out there, I know it, who's in the middle of family drama and maybe they'll benefit from seeing they're not … Continue reading Ugh… family and wedding drama.
I had no supervision today, and instead of working hard, I made a short list of phrases I hear people at work say all the time. A few of these are pretty universal, others are endemic to my workplace. "In full transparency." As anyone who has ever held a job might expect, this phrase spoken … Continue reading Overused phrases at work I don’t like.
Yes, her, who else? (In case you don't know, the chain of command in the department store where I work is that I'm the lowly administrative assistant, my manager is the office/business manager, and her manager, the boss, is the store manager. My manager, for some inexplicable reason, is best friends with the boss. However, … Continue reading She’s at it again.
I generally don't talk about my family or loved ones out of respect for them because they don't know about this blog or aren't allowed to read it if they do. So I'll be as vague as I can, though I must add some details. I know estrangements happen in every family. My sister and … Continue reading Guys, make me feel better.
Love hurts, that's what everyone says. And it's true, love and loss never seem to be otherwise than intertwined. Even the most beautiful beginnings contain the seeds of loss. Hold on to beautiful moments, hold them in your mind like precious photographs that you have no other copy or negative of. Don't feel too bad … Continue reading Love hurts, oh yes it does.
So as many of you know, I have a bit of an Internet addiction. I spend hours a day either on my phone, tablet, or computer scrolling through nonsense. I've written about this here and here. Sad to say, the only progress I have made since then is getting off Reddit. I did this by … Continue reading Okay, I’m really gonna try to kick the scrolling habit this time.
Haven't been the most prolific blogger as of late, so I thought, why don't I pop in, say hi, and get back in the game? So, hi. Sometimes I feel embarrassed about posting because I don't want people to get annoyed with an email or notification. In fact, I'm sitting here right now wondering if … Continue reading Just wanna say hi
Why do people care so much about other people's hair? The other day, I got my hair done, as many people do every so often, and suddenly I became worthy of being fawned over. I didn't change my makeup, or my clothes, or my personality, or anything, just freshened up my hairstyle. People are always … Continue reading Just a little girl-talk about hair…
From time to time someone will pop into your head and you wonder whatever happened to them. And then you google them. Yes, you do, don't deny it. Memory is like the studio of a dishonest photographer, cluttered with altered photos he will proudly show the ego--and half-developed ones that might have told the truth. … Continue reading Sort of memory of a sort of friendship.
.....I will be just fine. UPDATE: March 24, 2022. Two years. Still hearing it. Still hating it. Although less and less thank God. Dunno why I always remember the date of this post. I am sick right now. Would be funny if I had covid again exactly a year later. Am I fine? Probably not. … Continue reading If I never hear the words “social distancing” again…..
