Is anyone else having trouble seeing their Home feed this morning?

Things that make me cranky: "Hey just wanted to confirm that this request I submitted is going to get done by the deadline I set out."

Yes. It is. We deal with at least one of these requests every single week. Please trust your god-forsaken coworkers to do their jobs.

I need some better subject matter for my lettering practice than just calligraphizing a stream of consciousness.

So far I have approached the "lol triggered" conversation from the angle that I super do not have the energy to change this person's mind, so I have just asked them to cut that shit out because it make ME PERSONALLY really upset, rather than because he is being shitty in general.

He agreed to cut it out, but said that it was only because of me personally asking in that way, and doubled down on the fact that he doesn't think it is a generally shitty thing to say.

Sigh. Small victories, I guess.

I am realizing increasingly today that there are few things that people can say that make me more angry than "Lol triggered".

Now is a good time to let those shoulders drop.

Record breaking deep freeze with windchill -30, frozen fog, road-paralyzing snow dump, freezing rain, now +7-8 degrees, melting and flooding.
In the past 5 days.

Go home January you're drunk.

Best part of : the part where they taught a guy in half an hour to speedrun Strider and his first time after that was under 10 minutes and they said "see, anyone can do this" and after that people start sending donation messages with their own first times

Worst part: thinking about my family's medical history

I man the IT helpdesk at my company solo, so I sit by myself, and no one ever talks to me unless they need something.

There is just enough of a space between me and the rest of my team (who all sit very close together) that I can see when they are hanging about talking, but can't hear well enough to participate. Aside from that, I would have to stand up and shout at them anyway.

It is just how it has to be, but it is beginning to feel really isolating.

i was gonna make a toot (not a subtoot, more anticipatory) about good ways to respond to health-related toots but this actually applies to pretty much everything so:

please try to only offer advice when advice is asked for. i know for a fact i'm guilty of this sometimes and it comes from a good place of wanting to help! but also remember that sometimes people just need to vent

Warmth and safety to everybody. You know, this was gonna be about a specific situation but hey. All y’all be warm and safe.

My current levels of anxiety tell me that probably green tea has too much caffeine in it for me.

I quit coffee a few months ago for anxiety reasons, but it seems like I gotta go even colder turkey.
