so the old 'how was your day' thread is spent, so here's a new one! 

well, thanks for asking, my day was mixed.  I had an awesome meeting with the bigshot traffic engineer/urban planner who is a nice guy.  he was surprised that I hadn't done any traffic planning since my 7th grade science project investigating traffic light planning.  it's funny to be treated as a responsible in charge person.

the person I haven't been getting along with at work was extremely annoying at one point (like to to the point I had to leave the office for a few minutes to keep from impulsively quitting), then extremely nice later.  I don't know what to make of him.

but...  I just got home from work.  and I have to go in early.  and there are concerts I want to go to tomorrow, friday, and saturday.  tomorrow's not looking good, friday is uncertain, but I am going to saturday even if I have to go back to work afterwards.

right now I am having a beer for dinner, but I should probably go rustle up something more substantial.

...so, how was YOUR day?

I can't even think about my job without bursting into tears. I can't remember the last time I was this unhappy.

I've had some moments like that this month, but I think, I hope, I'm getting a handle on things.  that sucks, though, girl.  any chance of looking for a different sitch?

That sucks, chris.  If you need someone in a ski mask to kick your boss in the crotch, just let me know.

My day was terrible, for a whole bunch of reasons.

i went to work like usual, but due to a doctors appointment and "really bad pms" (according to her), my boss went home for the day at about 1. i work with one other person and she leaves at 2:30. that meant half assed working for the rest of the day and eating all of the potato salad and coleslaw that showed up in the kitchen.

now i'm laying in bed with pizza, breadsticks, and beer. not too shabby.

also, I forgot to say, my day was much improved by listening to C of Heartbreak's mix from the mix trader thread over and over.

and blucas, I hope tomorrow is a better day.

Yeah, well, I wouldn't protest if you wanted to come in and murder my boss and all of my co-workers, then I could go on "disability" leave from the "trauma".

I would take the first job I'm offered. Every minute there is worse than the last one. If my monthly expenses weren't so high, I would've quit and just taken temping jobs already, but I can't afford to do that. There's no other income in my household. I don't want to take it out on the people I love, but really, if you're not going to give me a lot of money or hire me. . .

I don't want to talk about it.

Man, you guys keep making me cry. I hate it when I get all self-pitying.

Thanks.

Today was the sequel to yesterday, but the cinema of life was playing a double-feature, so I haven't had any sleep. The hangover has gone now, though, thanks to two intense back to back games of indoor soccer, both of which we lost while putting in a respectable team performance.

My nose, throat and sinuses feel like they did after my nose reconstruction a few years back, and I can taste a lot of blood, and I had an asthma attack during the game and I couldn't tell anyone on account of not being able to get the breath to do so. Way to go.

And to top it off:

Yeah, well, I wouldn't protest if you wanted to come in and murder my boss and all of my co-workers, then I could go on "disability" leave from the "trauma".

I'm in a similar boat and totally sympathise - I hope something comes along for you!

I was supposed to be at school by 9 today, but instead I overslept. I had like a half a critique followed by a round of second year presentations followed by a movie followed by me babysitting this presentation I'm in right now. And then I have to do surgery on a printer.

Crud, I hope things look up for people.  Much Love

As can be guessed from my other posts today, I'm sure, I had a crappy day; I really need to get sleep this weekend, and maybe a haircut, and see five or seven movies, if only to feel like I'm not wasting my life. The job interview went okay, I guess.

I'm working on something I'm pretty excited about, though, so the evening is turning out better than it might've otherwise.

And Red Sox fans: I like you, but let the Indians win, please. Jacob could use your good will. Much Love

Wow, if that's the criterion, then I'm some sort of all-star at life. And to think I never even knew.

Oh. Well, can we sub in, say, watching utterly NSFW hardcore porn someone uploaded onto YouTube for the babies and thus preserve my moment of glory?

I wish I could make it clear to y'all how sorry I am for inflicting my bout of weepy self-pitying angst on you guys. It's not like me at all to focus on negative stuff, I'm more of an "ignore it, it'll get bored and go away" sort of person. Really, sincere thanks for putting up with it and for being so nice.

I didn't leave the house today. I'm getting a bit of a headache. I suspect it's because I haven't eaten anything except for picking out the asparagus from this asparagus risotto I got at Trader Joe's. I'm not sure why i didn't actually finish the risotto part, as it was pretty good. I think I'll make some toast, maybe yogurt. . . toast and yogurt go with whiskey, right?

For those of you playing at home, yogurt and whiskey, not so much, but toast with honey and whiskey is excellent.
