Hi, y’all. I haven’t been around in a while. Life ‘n’ shit. How is everyone?
13-year-old daughter home with a stomach bug. I asked her if she’d eaten anything so far that day.
I don’t check in with the sub-blogs I love very often. I should do that more. When the content doesn’t move as quickly I tend to forget they’re there.
For the most part, I have myself in a bit of an echo chamber when it comes to social media. FB is where I do most of my stuff. I rarely use IG and I read Twitter more than I actually tweet.
Mr GV just started a psych Master’s program. It’s been a difficult transition, but he’s doing ok in school and at life. There are a couple completely do-able things he’s asked for (eg., more room for himself around the house). There are things I need to do first and I need his help (mostly lifting). I was letting him…
Include your current age, the age at which that transition happened and (if you want to) describe what happened. It’s ok if you don’t know or it hasn’t happened, yet. It’s also ok if it seems heavy or scary.
To everyone who chimed in when I asked for some ideas about how to help a homeless client jump the culture divide to being housed, THANK YOU.
I work in mental health and right now a significant part of my job is administering housing grants to get our homeless clients off the streets. The funding puts them into community housing (not a transitional house or group home) and provides rent assistance that is supposed to last until they can get into permanent…
Even though I already have a doctorate, I’m forced to take a course to supplement my Master’s degree in the hopes of achieving eligibility for professional licensure at that level (I can’t afford to pursue doctoral-level licensure right now. Clinical supervision works out to about $1200/mo, that’s after the $375 fee…
GTrs with food issues, I could really use some input. I finally admitted to myself that I have a food addiction. I thought sugar was the main problem, but I’ll substitute crackers for cookies pretty easily, so really it’s food in general.
Holy hell, I had no idea. Little GV (now 13 years old) has never been what one would call an “easy kid” in a variety of ways, but I didn’t realize her shenanigans and the resultant frustration would increase exponentially, rather than the linear pace she’d previously committed to.
What brands of leggings do you love? I want to get some Dr Who leggings for Little GV’s (13th!) birthday, but I know nothing about which are decent quality, while not breaking the bank.
So, here’s this article on reporting one’s sexual identification in the workplace. I’m not sure how I feel about it. I don’t really think that fact about me has any bearing on my job performance or any company’s bottom line. Even though I identify as hetero I’m not sure I’d feel comfortable participating in a system…
Sometimes Mr GV just doesn’t listen to me. He’s used to being the smartest person in the room, but he forgets that I often am, too. It isn’t like there’s a constant battle of wits and we both need to win. Truth be told, he’s smarter than me, though I’m no slouch.
I didn’t get a job that I wanted. It was a job that was going to pull me up another rung on the career ladder and I thought I had a good shot at it. I’m not feeling exactly hopeless, more just deflated and lost.
Ok, so FridayFriday’s post in the open thread earlier today about wanting to get off sugar got me thinking. What if we had our own “Fuck You, Sugar” group? I definitely have a problem with sugar. I don’t eat an amount that would be particularly problematic for others, but 1) I’m diabetic and the amounts I do eat…
1. Cramps and fatigue because ovaries
I’m working on a goal statement for a postdoc residency and I have a couple questions. It isn’t a personal statement, so I don’t think I need to put in any heartfelt “lessons learned” content.
Apologies if this has been posted, but I couldn’t find anything about it in the last few pages of GT. I haven’t had time to finish the article, but it’s something that people need to read. We desperately need a woman in the White House, but I think we’d be better off putting some lipstick on Bernie at this point.
I’m wearing this awesome sweater and so far nobody at work has noticed.
