I used to go straight through and get everything that sounded cool and that was like all 10-year-old me listened to. Then the computer crashed and I lost my whole collection.

That sounds very much like you!!!! I would actually love to hear that collection; it’s a shame it was lost.

Job apps are terrible. All of them. Every single one!


I had a job in 2009 and every time I fill out one of these- EVERY TIME- I completely forget what my supervisor’s name was, how much I was paid… it’s a pain in the ass, because it was a shitty 15 hours a week go-on-twitter-half-the-time job. Also I don’t keep track of exact dates (this is my fault) so I always get pissed off when I can’t just say the month I started; I have to provide the EXACT DAY; I don’t remember that shit so I (in a potentially dangerous move) always give the first of the month for both starting and ending

I whine because I’m afraid this potential employer is going to be all “…this bitch doesn’t even know her own life, bye”

Isn’t it amazing how you can become a functional adult and you realize that you weren’t just being lazy or worthless the whole time SOMETHING WAS ACTUALLY WRONG?? I think it’s amazing. You are awesome. I hope this works for you! :D

:’) Thank you friend! I think it’s amazing, too, that I might have figured out precisely what was wrong. I’m going to see how this goes; hopefully I’ll keep making progress.

Precisely where I’m looking! A little sparse on things that I can participate in, to be honest.

Y’all I am looking in the Lin Beifong AO3 tag and there is a severe dearth of fics primarily oriented around middle aged women gazing into each others’ eyes. Disgraceful!!!

I suppose I could fix that, but it would require some serious research into Avatar lore. Maybe I’d go for some Lin/Kya, or Lin/Zuko’s daughter who I don’t remember the name of. Or Lin/OC.

Yes I’m sorry I didn’t notice this post count me in as well! Back in the days when I could just wander over to “the suite” I didn’t have half as much to talk about with you as I potentially do now.

Back at you, friend! Hopefully I’ll be able to drop by soon.

I think at least four people I know, myself included, have mentioned something about admiring our own stupid pretty eyes. WHY IS EVERYONE ATTRACTIVE.

Devastatingly attractive nerds alert

I always ignore these because I am just the pits at coming up with positive things that aren’t the same old bullshit I throw on my resume. But ok. Let’s give it a shot! POSITIVE THINKING.

1. I am fucking amazing at parsing other people’s understanding of the world. I can determine someone’s basic ideological orientation after talking to them for like five minutes. That’s why I love history, specifically finding threads of ideas that just continue onwards and evolve into different forms. So fun.

2. I think I’m entering a point in my life where I’m not so much concerned with “understanding everyone’s point of view” and then “picking the specific point of view that suits mine best.” Now I’m a little more confident about trusting my own judgement, whether or not it exactly conforms to some existing philosophy. I believe that is a trait integral to becoming AN ADULT.

3. I’m really good at putting together color palettes, for clothes and other things.

4. I make a perfect cup of tea.

5. I am very handsome. I am slowly internalizing that idea! It is hard after having a low opinion of my looks for so long, but I am getting used to looking in the mirror and being floored by my hella high cheekbones and piercing gray eyes. Heavens to betsy.

I like everyone, so it’s hard for me to choose just five folks to tag. Also… I don’t want to bother people.
