TL:DR : My job stresses me the fuck out
TOTALLY ACCIDENTAL “INCONTENENCE” COUGH WHILST SITTING DOWN IN NOT MY CHAIR.
I am going to San Fransico tomorrow for a quick getaway. I’ve been living in Seattle for 20 years and never rmade it before but now I am. I’ve been before years and years ago (22) but never really had a compelling reason.
Most likely because I’ve got huge relationship avoidance / aversion personality disorder. Like, I haven’t been in a relationship in 8 years and only a smattering of dates since then. I just can’t seem to muster very much enthusiasm for dating or getting involved IRL. Just seems like to much hassle.
Long story short: I work in a field that can be rather volatile in employment terms (and I’m usually one of the first to be laid off) and while I can usually find employment quickly, I had a long term of unemployment (2008 to 2011) and quite a few years of crappy jobs up 2014.I basically feel like I have PTSD from…
I need to get a gut check about my new job, and if my feeling that my boss is going to fire me any moment now is unfounded or should start looking?
I did laugh out loud. Sly fox.
Situation: I have a ticket for *The Orb show in my town tonight. I mostly want the internets permission to blow it off. I am/was going solo. The ticket was only 25 USD ? after fees and tax, so, not nothing but not pricy.
(Note, I am unemployed as I just got laid off in late August, rather suddenly, but my field is very active right now).
I left interview with Firm A almost two weeks ago with an understanding that I would have an offer letter within 3 business days. Two days later, Firm B, with whom I’d had a nice phone interview with…
Can’t tell if good or bad yet. Or, so bad it’s good. Enjoying it though - skit based varsity show. Plus guests are Tina Fey and Nathan Lane amongst others!
Have you ever gone against your instincts/deal breakers and had it work out?
I just start google stalking anymore, first, before I really start to form a crush. Guy in my workout class who does not wear his wedding ring, he was to cute to be true - and he is not single unless he’s living in a nice 3 bedroom house in a nice neighborhood with his sister :/ No, I don’t think so.
I told two of my close friends that I wanted to just chill at home and if they wanted to stop by,that’s cool or, I’m happy to have a nice NYE at home alone. I also said “Anytime after 9” because I knew I’d be puttering and cleaning all day and wanted to do it at a liesurely but thorough pace and that likely I wouldn’t…
Tell me it’s ok, I’ve been looking forward to this show since Sept.(even though an unpleasant ex-flame ‘might’ be there.) I bought tickets in about a month ago. Since then I’ve been working 50 hour weeks. Hella busy on the social front too. I’m in my mid-40’s, professional person, started my day at 730 am with a…
not really my belief. but. i am currently in a position as a consultant and the client’s client project manager (are you following me?) is a middle-aged overweight overbearing of strutting peacock of a redneck...and I find him inexplicably appealing. now, i am a somewhat pudgy (but active/attractive) middle aged lady…
So, I just recently joined a 'group fitness' gym down the street from me that opened about a month and a half ago. (I'm an overweight out of shape young middle aged lady). The first night I go - eyecandy! yeah! A nice (ok, good!) looking young man (early 30's?) is in my class. He's hot, I can tell out of the corner of…
Headed out for a live music show tonight. Unfortunately going solo as I could not get a friend go with me despite my offer to buy someone a ticket. It's gonna be a great show but not a very mainstream act/ DJ (Trentemoeller).
Thanks to all you on GT who encouraged me to respond to my OK Cupid correspondent with the Phd.
