WRMD: Gonna be moving offices. FML. I am absolutely furious with this news, not gonna lie.
Also love how star and hasse responses got shorter and shorter compared to everyone else
Yeah, that sounds like a pretty darn serious achievement! Don't really type in this topic, but would like to congratulate too ;).
Thanks everyone. We are both very excited, more so I can start making @Nitroglycerin watch more anime.
WRMD: Almost everyone in the region for my company got an email from the RM today bitching that we aren't scamming enough people selling enough product. Now we have to come up with "action plans" to sell enough shit by the end of the quarter and I've been procrastinating on replying to this dumb fuckhead's email for the entire day like a schoolchild that doesn't want to do his homework. Mildless, tedious busy-work: the foundation of American capitalism.
WRMD: For most of yesterday and a good chunk of today, I've been having internet problems (probably due to the snow/cold temperatures). Fortunately, the internet seems to be stable for now (hopefully, I didn't jinx myself for typing that).
Surely footfall is down due to covid? Are your bosses stupid?
My Discord was falsely accused of breaking ToS and got disabled. Had a while lot of contacts and well... it was a major glitch as many other people were affected and got the same exact email on the same time. Yeah... It was bad.
WRMD: And thus the temperature has risen above 0°C, and like every fucking February, pollen has arrived
I mean, considering I have access to her bank account and see how she lives her life, I can unequivocally answer "yes". But I think it's more of the corporate vampire coming out when I get yelled at for not pushing enough product than stupidity.
WMMD: my overnight job doesn't have a crushing amount of freight tonight. Yay. Unlike last night, where by the end of the night all of my muscles were dying because I can't unload 5 pallets by myself in a single aisle.
1) that’s some devious power you have there, and I’m curious to see what you mean by living stupidly
2) we only get one delivery a week but I can understand the frustration of uneven deliveries. For me it’s a case of I got 1 cage last week and 5 cages this week, because I was sold out of practically everything by the time the order generated for this weeks.
ITS MOVING DAY BITCHES!!!
She and her husband (who is a middle-tier civil servant) pull in about a quarter million dollars per year between the two of them after taxes. They still live paycheck to paycheck, maintain dozens of credit cards with unpaid balances, take out predatory payday loans, and overall just piss money away on the daily buying the stupidest shit possible (including, get this, phone-based lottery tickets! It's like gacha, but sadder). I know this because I've made it a part of my office routine to check her accounts to make myself feel better. Like damn, I'm some overworked 28 year old fuckhead who's really hard on himself but I live like a king compared to this 45-year-old finance executive.
Fuck yeah home ownership, dude. Hopefully moving day went/goes well.
WRMD: This actually happened a couple of days ago, but I'm still feeling the effects. A pipe in the pool house burst most likely due to the cold snap and flooded the pool house. Because of that we had cut off the water, and since there is no way to just cut off the water to the pool house, we had to cut off water to main house too. To make things worse, there isn't any plumber available to look at it/fix it for at least 2 weeks. That's right, I will not have any running water at my house for at least 2 weeks! Good thing we can use the pool water to help fill the toilets and can go to my aunt's place to shower and obtain plain water for my guinea pig, but it's still a pain.
Putting this in a spoiler tag, cause it's majorly long... In short, I had a massive anxiety attack days ago.
(Part of me is leery to post this, but since I really don't have that many people to vent to, well... Anyway, I know this won't mean anything to a lot of people, and you might be like "Why would you have an anxiety attack over something so stupid/insignificant/small?" but as someone who needs routine/structure, and has anxiety, well...)
So my computer decided to do a MASSIVE update, (that literally took almost the entire day) without my permission.
One of the first things I do as a part of my routine is to go on my computer to check out Anime Planet, so when that happened, the anxiety started creeping in.
"But Hime, why couldn't you just use your phone, or something?"
2: I was trying to listen to music on my phone as a calming mechanism/distraction. (Which didn't work...)
3: I can't confirm since I haven't tried it in a long time, but the last time I did, A-P videos would tend to buffer. (Which can be an anxiety/meltdown trigger in itself, depending on how bad the buffering is.)
Anyway, after HOURS of waiting, it started asking me stupid stuff that I couldn't understand, (keep in mind that I'm one of the types of people that's never been able to "process" computer & technical stuff, no matter how many people try to teach me, no matter in how many different ways, and no matter how many times. It. Does. Not. Stick. If it's not an interest, my brain doesn't want to remember anything about it) so I was like, screw this, and just let my mom take care of it, while I tried to calm down in my room.
Then after everything FINALLY loaded up, I get on my computer, go to A-P, go to an anime that I want to watch, then BOOM. Guess what? The video buffers. (Which it rarely used to while I was on my computer.) At first I thought, "Hmm, maybe it's just that particular video?" so I try another one from the same anime, and that one buffers too. I get a little stressed, but then I figured, "Ok, it must be that particular anime." So I try another series, and it does the same thing. "Ok, the videos must be glitching or something since the site itself is fine." So I get out of A-P for awhile, come back later, and try again. When it took literally 2+ hours to watch one 20-something-minute anime, (not including ads) cue the anxiety attack turned into meltdown. And it wasn't just the one, no, it was almost all of them that took that long. (Some took double their original runtime, while others took triple.)
So yeah, trying to deal with that, as well as trying to deal with other stuff that's happened to me these past few days, (that I don't want to talk about) I'm becoming emotionally drained...
Again, I'm leery to post this, because I'm not in the emotional headspace to deal with possible negative/judge-y replies, but I figure since many others on here deal with anxiety too, and I have extremely few people in my life that I can vent to, I just...
I'm not looking for nor am I asking for help, since it's useless trying to explain computer/tech stuff to me, but if you've read this far, props to you. I know most of my comment sounds like I'm crabbing, but that wasn't my intention.
WRMD: I came into the branch today to my 40-year-old coworker panicking because he can't make an executive decision to save his life and he was arguing with a construction crew who was here to replace our ATM. Then I gave the go-ahead for them to come into the back area and start work and found out that our cameras are out. And our alarm has to be shut off because of the ATM replacement so having no cameras in a bank with a gaping hole in the wall is kind of a problem. Did I mention that corporate HQ gave us no heads up on all of this at all? Cause that happened.
WMMD: I scheduled a virtual appointment with my accountant to get my taxes done at least, so that's nice. I just want to get this shit over with, I'll probably end up owing money to the government but with how much of a shit-show last year was I don't even care at this point.
WMMD: We were able to get a plumber sooner than we thought. While the pool house hasn't been fixed yet, the plumber found a valve we didn't know about and was able to shut off water directly to the pool house so we can finally turn the water back on to the main house. So, we have running water again! Yay!
WRMD: family therapy :D
*insert head pat here*
It's still sucky, (the videos buffering) but other than that, at least my computer tends to be faster than it used to be.
