    Searching for summer jobs is exhausting, I'm supposed to be having my summer and now that I have to adult it means that I have to work through the summer? It's such a bummer, but I guess that's just how things go. I feel like I've filled in 100 applications but there's been nothing so far.

    Company changes our pay plan and gives us raises based on past performance which is GREAT. Super happy to hear this news. OH BUT WAIT only if you were in role all of 2015 and all of 2016. If you were in role all of 2016 (like me) it doesn't count, they will just take the company average for both years and give that to you. 

    So, if like me, you excelled in 2016, that doesn't count unless you also were in role 2015.

    So that ***** boss I had that refused to promote me in 2014 and drug it out to 2015 and a company that can't find its ass from its elbow sometimes have screwed my pay over for years to come!

    I don't like complaining about Charites, but really... There are two instances of aerial to be used as commodities. I'm trying to say that aerial has been used in the past by myself and others for feathers.The design has been ping-ponged between mortals and nonmortals over this one commodity for like two months now. I just want it to go through so fine, I'll put pigeon. I hate arguments. But pleassse somebody, I don't know, remember to check this list and don't write off players as not knowing their shiz. 

    But Look! There's two. I'm not crazy.



    The Charites have returned your proposed design for further revisions. See 

    DESIGN LIST <cartel>. The following comments were made regarding the design:

    Since the feathers are not specifically noted as being from an aerial in 

    Clarramore, and the majority of aerials in the game are (featherless) stalkers, 

    we must insist that you add a bird corpse to make it clear.

    make your life easier.)

    Aerials are the Shevat family bird so we can't be friends if you include their corpses in designs.  :p

    My dissatisfaction: I heard a pop in my laptop followed by the whirring of something spinning against something else. Shut down and got to the repair shop as quickly as I could, praying it's a fan and not a hard drive.

    have you ever had one of those days where, when you wake up it is a great day but shortly after breakfast you are just ...sad?

    Today is my day. Sadness ago away!

    I have been especially depressed lately and everything is just really draining and hard right now, I am sorry for the lack of productivity and meh quality RP that has resulted in ingame.

    Bailing on things for people at the last minute stresses them out and often puts them in a twisty logistical mess. Life happens obviously, but sometimes you know life is happening and you put off telling people out of shame, and I'm just saying, the procrastinating is the main thing they'll get mad about.

    I am currently mad about dealing with a problem someone should have told me about a month ago, and mad that I have very little time to solve it as a result. Hmph.

    $32000 to have my appendix removed..... explicative explicative explicative 
  • XenthosXenthos Shadow Lord Member Posts: 5,820 Transcendent
    I was still on my parents' insurance when my appendix decided it wanted to push the eject button, which I am... very grateful for.  Though I cannot say more without getting into politics.

    So, I was dealing with an issue last night and was waiting on something, so I decided to go get dinner. Got back, put my giant container of miso on the couch (still in the takeout bag), and went to grab something to drink. Got a ping on my phone about the thing I was waiting on, ran back to my laptop, and ended up not thinking and sitting on the miso container. In a panic, I reached to pull the takeout bag and ended up screwing something up in my shoulder.

    Next morning, first degree burns on my ass and my shoulder is bruised, inflamed, and it hurts like hell to move my arm.

    I am an idiot.

    Sorry, that sucks.

    But still, lol. You are an amazing creature Ianir! We've gotta get you a show :p
    To me you're forever the kick runner from 3 years ago, the guy who does domoths when no one is online and whines that he's got no competition, and the guy that use to only turn up to fights when the numbers favoured him.

    Ouchies :(  Hope you feel better soon @Ianir .  Make sure to keep the shoulder iced and perhaps use some Arnica cream or tablets.  I used to do a lot of horse riding and as a result got more than my fair share of bumps, bruises and strains.  I would swear by the stuff, since it takes down bruising and inflammation in a VERY short timeframe, maybe a few days tops.

    Agree on the arnica. I would also recommend lydocaine spray and cream for the burns. I also did horseback riding and the best thing for it was epsom salt baths. Just make sure you hydrate and don't stay in too long, maybe 10-15 minutes tops. @Ianir

    vegetable (tomato, capsicums, onion, potato + garlic) fritters held together with pureed cooked instant noodles & 1 egg are a bad idea. Mushy, slightly bitter (from the noodles) but very filling.
     
     I'm trying & egg dip then crushed ramen as breading next...

    After ~3 weeks and 2 engineer callouts to try and get our line sorted, we've been told our internet isn't going to be any better than ~1Mb/s because the cable's in poor condition and they're upgrading everything to fibre so they're not exactly likely to fix it. Which means I now have to either get cable internet or VDSL because standard ADSL isn't ever going to be usable. Bleh.

    I need a vacation from everything. It's not any one particular thing stressing me out, I'm just perpetually exhausted and unable to focus lately. Have been putting things off and letting all kinds of work just pile up. Like my insurance owes me money and need to call them about it and I just... haven't done it yet.

    Frustrating! Here, we have only one type of service per area, and only one company per type. So if your DSL gets cut to 5Mpbs because "the infrastructure is old, unmaintained, and overwhelmed," and the connection drops out every few minutes, tough. They don't even reduce your bill accordingly, so you're paying as much for that crap as someone in a nearby town pays for steady 30Mbps cable, and there's not a thing you can do about it. I don't mean to trivialize it, and I always feel dirty saying "at least you [insert comparison]" buuuuut... at least you have a choice. Hope you can get it sorted soon and get back to the most important part of the internet - Lusternia. :D
