    Hey, I really appreciate that.

    Ideally, the music industry has always been the goal. My degree is in business management/marketing however, and the job I am doing now has me leading a project as we develop a field app for our workers to use, plus I am maintaining the database associated with the data (part of the whole bringing us into the modern era thing my boss is looking to do...). I'm looking to make 60k+ especially if I have to travel to the city (train is expensive).

    Not sure what kind of jobs you hear about, but if you happen to come across anything in music (business side)/technology/marketing/social media management please point me in that direction! Thank you again!

    Thanks dude! Well I am handling it better at least. Maybe I shouldn't be handling it this well?? Is this handling it better/well? Maybe I'm blocking it out of my thoughts to not have to mentally deal with it. One day at a time for me right now.

    I've adopted this mindset back in like high school and it's worked wonders for me. More often than not, situations have a way of just working themselves out without flying off the handle or handling things poorly.

    Just keep an open mind and take it one day at a time.

    How you react to a shitty situation is half the battle!

    oh, you went fast to the midnight land

    This has not been my week AT ALL. On Monday I totaled my car because some idiot lady decided as she was entering an intersection at 45mph that she didn't want to go through the just-changed yellow light. Now I have to walk 1.5 miles to the train and it's been humid af this week and I don't know how long it will be until I can get a new car (I don't mind taking the train, but the walk is brutal).

    Then yesterday I went to the beach to get away for a few hours and my two month old iPhone XR fell out of my purse onto the concrete and scuffed two corners... 24 HOURS BEFORE MY CASE IS TO BE DELIVERED. I've literally never damaged a phone, ever, and of course it happens when I'm waiting for the case.

    Staffing at my work work has been terrible over the last few months. We’re pretty much short one person because they can never find someone to work the shift. The 2nd shift has an extra person which they don’t need because there’s nothing to do on that shift and all the staff does is sit around putting the work on my shift to do. Im already so tired on day 3/5 and my body is aching when I wake up. They got people working doubles lately and asking people to stay right when they’re about to leave because oops they forgot to tell you someone called off yet again. I can’t keep doing this

    I know I ranted in here last week about the person they moved into my office; well I am still beyond frustrated with it all but what is really getting to me today is an extremely small and petty thing but - she has an overripe banana on her desk and it is attracting fruit flies and they have been flying around me all day and I eat fruit for breakfast and they keep landing on it and wtf!! I never had issues with bugs in here until now. /pettyrant

    there's a new person in our office who's desk is kiddie corner to mine and she's only here a few days a month. she's been gone for 2 weeks now and left something in a coffee cup on her desk that is literally now growing mold (or something worse) - as our part of the office gets super muggy even with the dehumidifier.

    like, you knew you weren't going to be here for at least 3 weeks and you left a half-full cup of coffee out? did you think someone was gonna clean it for you? no ma'am.

    luckily no bugs or smells yet from it, but i really really wanna be here when she comes in and sees it since it's not just a styrofoam cup but like a personal mug she brought from home that she'll probably have to toss lol

    My work is super unprofessional and makes me feel guilty or uncomfortable when I bring up problems because they always act like they aren't important or they are small problems in comparison to other things they are dealing with, but what they don't seem to understand is that it's CONSTANT problems and if they would just help fix them then I wouldn't be bugging them anymore.

    They desperately need to bring in someone from the outside and have an HR department, but that's just wishful thinking at this point.

    So today I'm being asked to fill in ~6,000 data points on a spreadsheet because...one of the old boomer men here fucked something up. This isn't even something that has anything to do with me hahahahahaha. They also made sure that the cells were the tiniest possible that they could be so it's so difficult to move back and forth between the spreadsheet I am copying from. My favorite part about this job is how the incompetence of the old guys in the higher positions gets trickled down to all the women who get to pick up their pieces! Totally cool and not old school power plays at all!

    That's so disgusting! I hope she feels super bad when she comes back. You should say something.

    They're moving the girl who moved into my office to the other side of the room - apparently she wasn't supposed to be set up right next to me. She's doing a whole lot of passive aggressive complaining about it but you know what, I feel a huge relief that I don't feel someone right in my space at all times. It's still not the ideal situation but this is manageable. This whole thing has just been so needlessly stressful and the way this place operates is really taking its toll on me.

    I have a work problem and vented about it to the most negative person I know and surprise, she was not comforting or helpful at all. In fact she decided that "it's your fault" is a reasonable thing to say to a "friend" who's having a shit day

    thanks guys, y'all are great.

    i should know better, she's very judgmental and when i have a problems is like "that's what you get when you do/don't do x". But when she has a problem, which is constantly, she doesn't take criticism at all

    My company doesn't give raises so the only way to really get a pay increase is if you advance to a higher position. But there's really only 1 position you can advance to, a team lead. So I asked my boss about it and expressed interest bc I've been with the company for around 8 years. She said they didn't have anything available at the time but when they did they would send out an email and let everyone within the company apply bc they like to hire within the company if possible. Yet today when I log in to my work email....SURPRISE!!! They hired a new team lead, and they never sent out a fucking email to us. And this woman did not previously work for the company. I feel beyond defeated. I meet all the criteria for the job and know all these clients way better than the woman who got the job because I've worked with them for years. It would have been a big pay increase plus I would finally get benefits and PTO, etc. But they didn't even give me a chance and straight up lied to me. I hate this job so much.

    I started a new job 2 months ago & don’t really know how to feel about it. I really like my coworkers but the job itself not so much & I especially don’t like the company. It’s a very competitive retail store where we really push sales onto people which is something I’m still not comfortable with because I’m a very shy person. Also I have to multitask a lot especially when we’re busy because a lot of the time I’m either alone or just with 1 other person. I have never been good with multitasking so I hate it. It’s really stressful for me so far. The customers are also really rude & impatient most of the time.

    Just my monthly post whining about how much periods suck!!! I spent the whole work day with my heating pad on, took Advil and then immediately got a hot bath after work. Nothing is helping these cramps from hell. Remembered I had pain pills from when I got my wisdom teeth removed. I never took any bc that stuff fucks me up bad but rn I pray it knocks me out bc I cannot deal with this anymore. Everyone who has a period should get like a week paid off work every month. I will scream that from the rooftops until the end of time!! Let me curl up in my bed with my heating pad and weep in peace!! But I get zero PTO so I will spend tomorrow crying at my desk bc I can't afford to take the day off :redanger:
