  1. I am dealing with generalized anxiety in my life exacerbated by three situations. Number one, it is week 2 into winter term and because of the hellish weather we are having in the Portland area right now I have had exactly .75 days of class. I am sick and ****ing tired of feeling like I'm stuck at home because the roads are crap, the buses are running chained, and classes keep getting cancelled. Number two, I finally called her bluff in regards to my psycho censorkip.gif* of a boss. She is power tripping and I called her out on her behavior towards me because I'm tired of being treated like a recalcitrant child when I deserve respect as a human being. Just because she's a manager doesn't mean she can act like that, so I've got my union involved and the store manager on alert that I am calling for a full sit down with him, the assistant manager, the union, and the censorkip.gif*. I'm also in the process of filing a grievance against the store manager, because I've tried to get him to deal with this and have been brushed off or told 'I'm tired of hearing you two fight, you just need to get along' and that is so less than professional. Number three, I am still looking to find a roommate to replace my former meth-head roommate from hell whom I had to call the cops on both on Christmas Eve and literally right at midnight on New Year's Day. The second one was because his 30 days notice that he gave us in writing expired at 11:59pm on 12/31/16 and we didn't feel safe with him in the house. He refused to leave, so we were done playing games with him. All in all, I need hugs and sanity.


  2. I just need to trade for two of the Pokemon Moon Ultra Beasts, and then my Alola Pokedex will be complete. :-) If there's anyone online right now who might be able to assist with this, please let me know! I'll be logging off in a half hour.


  3. If you eat meat? Cool, enjoy that burger or that bowl of venison stew! If you don't eat meat? Awesome, enjoy that veggie burger or that ginormous bowl of veggie pasta salad! Just don't give other people grief for their choices. Me, I'm an avowed carnivore.


  4. Yay, Finland mentioned! It's so weird to hear about how different school systems are away from here. Yk, at the moment I'm a university student and the government PAYS me ~400 euros (440$) to study?! That just seems so mind blowing sometimes. And my university studies are basically free of charge, the pay per semester for the student union is 100 euros so it's practically nothing. I could also get a small loan that the government backs up for me. There is limitation on my other income, though, I cannot make more than 600 € (I don't remember the correct amount) per month or I lose the money government gives me. I also have to get 5,5 ECTS (or credits) per month to qualify as a full-time student.

     

    Man, sometimes I really love Finland.

    That would be phenomenal right about now.
