Arg!

All right, people, it's time to vent your frustrations. Throw your problems here. Problems at work? Something at home bugging the crap out of you? Just need to let out a loud, internet yawp? Go for it. I open this entry to masses - let your frustrations out, even if by simply banging your head against the keyboard a bit and clicking "Post Comment".

As for me? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!

I'm supposed to reorganize General Electric in our database.

Yeah, that General Electric. All 80 divisions, hundreds of addresses, thousands of employees, and millions of dollars worth of orders.

Oh yeah -- that needs to be done before 4:30 PM.

Catch-22 of job hunting.

In order to get a job in x field, you need experience.
In order to get experience, you need a job.

I lack said experience (at first glance at my resume anyway, in actuality, I've done most of the shit they want in one form or another), so I can't get a job...but...ITS ALL SHIT A TRAINED MONKEY CAN DO, ANYWAY.

Fuck you, job market.

Don't tell me I'm not qualified to ANSWER PHONES.

Sadly, this Catch-22 was used as a military recruiting tool back in the '80s. I believe it was the Navy that had TV commercials featuring some bright young kid who needed real experience to get a job.

I totally would've been there at 5 pm my time, but after dinner, a bottle of beer, a snuggle with my son and some playtime, I'm good thanks.

I HAVE NOT DONE REAL WORK IN TWO MONTHS AND I'M STILL REQUIRED TO COME TO WORK AND DO NOTHING ALL FUCKING DAY AND IT'S DRIVING ME INSAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANE.

Also my crazy control freak boss is trying to prevent us from getting a massive, lab-wide overhaul that would make us a world-class facility and also completely awesome despite the insurance company offering to pay for the whole thing. ARGH ARGH ARGH YEEEARGH ARGH.

I work for the UW, actually, which is sort of like working for the government. Except it's really not the contractors screwing us over (they're the ones trying to give us nice things), it's my boss. Who is crazy.

Short trip for you, eh? Hopefully they're still paying you to go insane...

Yeah, but I'd really rather have pay and meaningful work. I was never in it for the money, anyway... (not that I really object to the money).

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I don't even having a paying job, and I feel that way! (I edit scripts for a couple of audio dramas)

so I just found out I'm losing my apartment as of april 30th at the latest. the notice reads move out as soon as possible but no later than april 30th. joy.(the owners have signed an agreement with a lutheran college...so i'm being kicked out so college kids can live here, where I was hoping to live through finishing college...O, the irony)

I've got until then to find a place, come up with first/last/damage/pets deposit all while I still have to pay bills and continue maintaining a C or better in organic chemistry, not just to transfer, but also so that work MIGHT cover it with the financial aid they touted (which has fine print that states it's for the purpose of advancing your security "career" but I'm told it might still work)

I'm already working two jobs to afford bills and whatnot (read bills, car, utilities, fancy haircuts and food) as is.

my cat farted in my face when I pucked him up to cuddle and he squirmed away.

but my hair is cute. which it should be since I just spent $200 I didn't know I needed on the birthday present of a salon visit...yes, the same visit I promised myself back in october.

I missed school this morning because I lost my checkbook and spent all morning reporting lost credit cards and checks. only to find them when I got home. I spent $20 to put stop payments on checks I just found and I can't use any of my credit cards for emergencies (like needing to move out) until the new accounts are set up.

I'm not doing well this quarter anyway, and I doubt my teacher will be forgiving about missing NMR tests this morning if she thinks I skipped to treat myself to a fancy new do at a salon...I'm sure my new cute hair wont imply that at all.

I've got this stupid head/chest/sinus thing that may or may not turn into pneumonia since it may be viral, but we haven't heard back from the guy who nearly collapsed at work last week. (he just came home fom malaysia) work sounds a bit like an old soundtrack of a hospital...everyone is coughing sniffling sneezing...and I'm maxed out on acetaminophen so now I just get to sniffle away without nyQuil.

know what? I found a penny this morning and picked it up.

I believe I've disproved the penny = luck theory.

thanks for the vent-space/opportunity.

How was your day?
