HOORAY! I didn't want to mention it as I lose track who's coming and didn't want to potentially rub salt in the wound.

That is all shit. Is there any chance of rearranging the interview? I'm sure you've thought of that, it's more my curious brain needing to know.
I hope so, they're interviewing internal people first so hopefully will be able to include me in the external interviews. I've got to ring HR tomorrow.

Yes 2000 Trees! It's currently the shiny beacon that's keeping me sane at the moment.

I actually feel a little better for moaning haha, so thanks :)

I say silly things.

Also finally going to live the 'dream' of traveling for some time - any other time in my life this would be easy, these dicks have to make me all affectionate for them & make me want to stay to be around them. It's most frustrating. That's not the shit thing - it's just the mind fuck of figuring out why I actually wanted to do this in the first place.

I had this bizarre midlife crisis, decided that I really did want to be a lawyer after all. I really do. I go to uni part time and work full time.

I am just so fucking overwhelmed and right at the point that I've done too fucking much to quit and have so much to go it seems like I'll never finish.

the only thing which will truly make this shit Gleena is giving up

if you have gotten to this point then you can make it to the final hurdle.
take heart have faith and push on through
you will do this and it will be worth it

I have been on the other side where it got too much and I gave up and it is my biggest regret
it will be the thing which haunts me till I die

Aww...moomin, thanks for that.

I can and will push through but shit week at work, bathroom tiles fell off the wall (inorite, wtf) and the subjects I'm taking are a bit dry (civil procedure and corporations law) so I sort of lost the will to live yesterday.

You people round here are awesome.

I'm sort of in the underpants gnome part of my degree:

1. Go to law school
2. ??
3. Profit!

I'm deeply in 2.

Moomin, if your thing was uni, can't you go back?

Work sucks right now. We have a "new management team" and they are enacting trivial juvenile rules. If no one is late for a month, we get a......wait for it....pizza party. Ugh! Stuff like that. And I have to cover my tattoo. Now, that will make me a better employee.

And no gigs in sight until Rancid in September. Help me.

shows? 90 so far...

it was a uni thing but I had to drop out due to money issues, those issues have gotten worse so that's me scuppered.
By the time I have fixed that aspect of my life I am not sure I would still want to continue plus I will be trying to save for other things, so in a lot of ways I feel that chance has passed me by. I have a fixed goal now which has been with me all my life and that is one I will concentrate on.

Suppose there is a lot I could add to this thread with regards to everything being shit but my head is in a good place so everything is doable and everything has a possible solution even if i can't see what it is right now
that is probably far too happy for a everything is shit thread

OMG pizza! Now that's a thing worth busting your ass for. Especially when it's cheap Dominoes or something. /sarcasm font

It's good when they don't treat you like an adult. I mean, god only knows how you managed to dress yourself AND brush your teeth AND show up at some point (not on time, mind you) until they turned up to manage you.

Hang in there. Been there, done that, cried on my t-shirt.

Never say never, that's where I was. But if you have a goal and you're going where you want to go, then fuck college. :) Make your life your work, sez Frank, and I agree.

I'll get there, so will you.

A lighthearted one but

I have a hangover and some kind of bug, I slept in my daughters bed instead of my own last night? (she wasnt in it) woke up next to a opened yet uneaten bag of crisps.

I have no fat coke in the house to make me feel better , no bacon either.

Cocktails out of teapots, you are so delicious but so deadly.

Im going to weep into the sofa while pretending to be a functioning parental role model this afternoon.
Never put a sock in a toaster!

this is shit

pretty disgusting to see it unfold as clear he had been hit hard but very sad to hear he hasn't made it through.
Thankfully most do and I am always so awed by their determination to get up and get back on their bikes despite being in sometimes crippling pain like Lorenzo racing with a broken collarbone and having to be helped off the bike after. They are slightly crazy but I can't help but admire them.

I have a hang over still, from Saturday, so I feel your pain. Drink water. Use screens to distract your child liberally as needed.
