Work anxiety 



The fuck 2021? You just couldn't leave without one more kick in the bullocks could you. Honestly Betty White? On new years eve? Just weeks before her centennial? Fuck?!

End of year 

A long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last


Say what you like about snow. A day like today is very pretty.

Compost the old world and let the new one grow from any good that remains in it

Feeling really overwhelmed with my new job today. It feels like I'm already falling behind and I'm still in training because I already have a caseload and I don't feel like I have the tools to accomplish my job.

Just got to step outside a bit for lunch. While I am stuck in the office the rest of the day, today is my favorite type of weather. If anyone else can make time to step away I highly encourage it.


Major depression sucks. Especially when combined with starting a new job that is very emotionally taxing.

So strong winds grounded our plane in Chicago. Meaning we are not on our plane and I don't know when I'll be able to get home. Yay

Landed in Madison. Flight was very warm and stuffy. But we are here and tomorrow we drive down to Indiana tomorrow.

How much does a rainbow weigh?

 — Not much. It’s pretty light.

You know, I like this. I have never really been one for reaching upwards, even though I thought it was the only possibility for the longest time.

Medication (-) 

This is my second day home from work because my medications decided to have a side effect field day with my body. Side effects have included:
Temporary blindness (!)
Trouble focusing
Short term memory loss
And a few others I am probably forgetting due to memory loss.
Called to schedule an appointment to see if I can get new meds

What universe would you rather live in?

Just got back from my first time in a gym in about a year. Definitely need to break my running shoes back in since they were the reason I had to stop today. Small steps.

To all within the sound of my toot. I am looking for an artist to take a commission for a character drawing. I have seem a few people offer commissions on here but I have not seen one in a few weeks so I was hoping someone could point me in a direction.

Thank you so much

Boosts are very much appreciated

I know it is going to be a tough day/week when I have to internally fight with myself and other internal voices for over 30 minutes that my medications are in fact good and helpful. This is becoming a more common and intense "conversation" each morning.

All I want to do
Is pay 1 :red: and :blue:
For a Giant Wizard (a Giant Wizard!)
And all I want to see
Is power/toughness 3

Personal finance (caught in time) 

I was checking my bank accounts earlier today and found over 500 dollars in payments I dud not make. Luckily I was able to get them flagged and the account secured quickly. Only issue is now I am going a few weeks without cards and I can't carry cash because I bank out of state. So that will be a fun juggle for the next few weeks waiting for the replacements.

I created this "Maslow's hierarchy of jobs" about 20 years go. Iv'e found to be good guide for when was time to move on (or stay). If you're failing at one or more of the lower 5 levels (pay not likely to continue, getting paid but nobody cares what you do) might be time to find a more productive gig.

You probably won't see this from HR in goals setting and performance management sessions.
