I keep telling myself to make a Life Updates post one of these days, since I'm 99% sure I haven't posted since like, November. HAH NOT EVEN CLOSE - October 18th. But 'Drowning in Life' is still very appropriate. And Life and Work and Things are happening all over the place and I'm too busy to even write, and if that doesn't tell me that my life is out of order, I don't know what does.

So, let's start with a journal post.

Work is craziness and awful and awesome and exhausting and challenging and craptastic and so many things all at once. )

In other news, I have a new Health Issue: )

As for bigger news, my roommate/best friend/Heart-Sister Shi-chan is pregnant. )

-Yawns- I think my thoughts are finally winding down again ...

Shi-chan's birthday was today, and some friends took us out to dinner. They are FABULOUS people, and we all had a great time. These friends are an amazing couple that blow me away every time I see them. Like I'm being reminded once again just how much I genuinely like them both. They're the kind of couple that balance each other out: she ranted to us about her awful day, while he listened patiently and nodded along with occasional annoyed commentary on her behalf, and later she listened patently while he gushed at me me in great detail about a movie that I'd reminded him off and how much he loved the beer he'd ordered and half a dozen other things. They also share this fantastic ability to somehow energize the people around them. I'd been fighting a nap all afternoon, and after two and a half hours with them, I'm just now getting sleepy again, four hours later.

And he wore a kilt to dinner. With a T-shirt with a lionhead symbol on it. He's good people. ^_^

Watching them also made me think about my own romantic relationship, and just how happy I am in it. It was a lovely feeling. ♥

It still feels like there's so many fun and crazy stories I should be telling. Laughing hysterically at the carwash this morning because Shi-chan's car had been horribly bird-bombed the night before, and it was so bad the guys working there were laughing too and offered to run us through the automated system again. My new New Nintendo 3DS, in pretty sparkly deep red. My newest game, Story of Seasons, which is both beautiful and adorable and I have no idea WTF I'm doing. Seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens with a co-worker and her husband and having an amazing time. (Finn is THE BESTEST and POE OMG POE and oh yes #ishipit.) My lovely and amazing girlfriend and her adorable kids that alternatively completely accept me in their lives despite having never met me and have no idea why I'm interested in their lives at all. Being SURROUNDED by pregnant women, like it's in season or something. (I'm at three, waiting for confirmation on a fourth.) Hunting down dragons for Shi-chan's baby theme because It's All Target's Fault. Discovering the wonderful show The Librarians and finding an interpretation of Santa Claus I have actually been able to not only accept and enjoy, but nearly been brought to tears by. Various Crazy Cat Antics because Things Are Changing and This Is Not Acceptable. Making DC Comic jokes at work and discovering people who actually get them. Being torn between wanting to write Charlie's Drama Story and wanting Antonio/Jayden cuteness and fluff. My intense hatred of Windows 10 and my fierce desire to see it burn in hellfire.

I suppose it's still life. And I'm still living it. Which leaves me feeling much better about things than I did when I started this post. ^.^

I keep meaning to post a status update lately, but I've been downing in Life.

Not Offline Issues. Just.


Thing the First: I have a new job! )

Suffice to say, it's been a really bad week. I'm trying to decompress for the weekend (hence the ranty post), but it's not happening as easily I need it to be. >.<

So. Moving on to happier things.

Thing the Second: I moved! I was finally able to move into a bigger apartment! I HAVE MY OWN ROOM. MY OWN BATHROOM. THINGS THAT ARE MINE AND SPACE THAT IS MINE AND I DO NOT HAVE TO SHARE IT. -Flails forever- My room looks like a storage unit right now because all I have is a bed and a lot of boxes but OMG MY ROOM!!!! \0/ Also a bigger kitchen and living room, and a balcony. Downside is that we have a flight of stairs now, but considering it's now only 10-15 minutes to work AND there's a bus I can take if I need to? NEW APARTMENT IS AWESOME. ♥

Thing the Third: I has new laptop!

Meet Kim: )

Other news ... Uh. I'm attempting NaNo this year, as always. I really don't know how it's going to work out with massive amounts of overtime, but I'm going to give it try. I think having my Kindle this year is actually going to help a lot, because I write on that on my lunch breaks sometimes. My goal is to write what I can during the weekdays, even if it's just a couple hundred words, and then OD on Code Red and ice cream to catch up on the weekends. I think even though NaNo is well, NaNo, and November is The Month of Doom, I really need to make the effort to write more for awhile. I'm a lot less stressed out after I write.

On which note, I am off to attempt to do some writing! Because Writing Therapy. It's important. ♥

It occurred to me awhile months ago, that I haven't posted about my current life status in a long time. So ... here it is.

I'm still alive!

For anyone who has seen the news about Texas flooding, yes, there is water everywhere. Yes, Dallas and parts of Austin were that bad. While I do live around Austin, I don't live in the area that's been on the news. My area just has a lot of puddles and thunderstorms. >.O But yeah, the weather has been hot and wet lately; just the kind of summer we need! x.x

Work has taken over my life. )

Oh! AMAZING new supervisor! )

-Takes a deep breath- Wow. Uh. Yeah, I have Work Feels. I won't be hurt if anyone skips over that. c.c;;;

In other news, I will be even busier next month! PR Day signups will *hopefully* be up by this weekend. Still deciding on various deadlines due to various Life Drama distractions, but yes, it will happen.

I will also be moving into a bigger apartment in twenty-four days! \0/ With the new job and our lease coming up, Shi-chan and I agreed it's time. I WILL FINALLY HAVE MY OWN BEDROOM. -Cries- In the meantime there is packing and utilities to start up/shut off and stuff to go through or throw out and OMG SO MUCH STUFF. x.x But IT WILL BE WORTH IT. ♥

As for this weekend, I intend to play some World of Warcraft with a friend, and *hopefully* get more work done for Changing Tactics/Ruigi. Hopefully; characters are being difficult. But mostly I am going to relax. Because OMG WEEKEND. x.x

So I survived the Yearly Holiday Rant, much to my relief now that it's over.

I did end up participating in the gift exchange in the end. )

I ended up with a five day weekend due to the holidays. I spent most of it leveling characters on World of Warcraft to de-stress a bit after the two weeks of hell.* It's a lot easier to play now, which is nice.

On the Friday after Christmas, Shi-chan and I went car shopping )

My other current distraction keeping me from the internets is an adorable anime Shi-chan discovered called Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi. )

But for now, I'm just trying to make it through the week at work, reading gay porn on my phone when it's slow.

As it should be.

* Video Games: Technology's way of making mass homicide legal.
** Yes, I am constantly forgetting the name. It stands for World's Greatest First Love.
*** I realized today that the plot would make a great post-letter Tommy/Kimberly story ... and sort of already is, except with two guys. I've been trying to unsee it ever since. x.x
**** Surprisingly not kidding about the reading gay porn at work, at least today.

Today on the Yearly Holiday Rant: Updates )

In summary, I'm still stressed and frustrated, but trying to stay out of it. I've got two more days until the contest is over, and then just two days before Christmas. A week after that, and December is over at last. I am counting the days.

I've never been big about holidays, but I didn't mind them. This year? I'm bitter, irritated, grumpy, stressed out, and gods damn it is it January yet? >.<

On a cheerier note, so much love and appreciation for everyone who has stopped to check on me, show their support, and shared their own stories of holiday bullying. It helps. It helps A LOT. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

* Okay, I like this person, because she's always been nice to me and helped me out, but SCREW YOU. This is the first, and *only* thing I have ever not wished or attempted to participate in. And if anyone tries to argue about me not participating? THERE WILL BE WORDS. -Fumes-
** Both Grinches came out great, and people have complemented me on both of them. No questions about why drawing them a Grinch was okay when decorating wasn't. It's also the first thing that has made people acknowledge me again after the past few days of mutual silence.

Time for the Yearly Holiday Rant!


Okay, so there normally isn't a Yearly Holiday Rant. Normally I'm pretty apathetic around the end of the year holidays: partly because I'm Pagan, partly because I haven't been a fan of Christmas since I was twelve. I might get mildly annoyed when someone wishes me a Merry Christmas or otherwise assumes I'm celebrating with them, but I let it go.

This year is different.

This year, I have a job. And the Yearly Holiday Rant is a Thing. Or more precisely, A THING.

The Situation: )

I could, and probably should, make a bigger issue about this. I should bring it up with my supervisor, possibly even HR. But I also don't want to get the contest banned or 'regulated' either, because that's not what I'm asking for.

All I'm asking for is someone to say 'Oh, hey, maybe not everyone celebrates the same way, and we should have been proactively respectful of that. I'm sorry.'

And I'm never going to get it, because no one *else* gets it.

-Flops- It's been a busy week.

Birthday 2014 )

The optometrist! )

On the subject of Birthday Presents, I give you Beautiful Fantasy Dream Horse, given to me by my lovely girlfriend [personal profile] arytra. ♥

Amusing Yet True Facts:
1) I did not tell her beforehand that I used to collect Breyer horses as a kid.
2) After [personal profile] rosabelle asked me what 'her' name was, I decided on Rainbow before remembering that most Breyer horses are anatomically correct and come with a name. Further inspection determined that his name actually *is* Rainbow, as determined by Breyer.

Second Birthday/Free Food Friday! )

Second Birthday Spoils! (The pie is between the plates. The cupcake and ice cream were long gone by then.)

In other news, my Nano finally broke 6000 words last night! \0/ (No, seriously.) I'm not giving up on it, but I'm doubtful I'll win. But I'm still writing as much as I can, even though it's only been a couple hundred words a day. I'm hoping to put a bigger dent into it over the remaining weekends.

I won't get too much done tomorrow though, because I have a Team Bonding thing for work. We're going to a driving range to play golf and get drunk. The other option was sitting at a bar with games. As I pointed out to my supervisor, it's better that we try and bond over an activity before we deal with the long awkward conversations. And hey, we're competitive.

Not so much me. But I am notoriously lethal with a golf club in all the worst ways, so it should be an entertainingly violent amount of Fail.

Also just realized I haven't posted since the end of August. Whoops. x.x I keep intending to, but I'm usually too damn tired to think clearly enough to say anything.

I'm still working at Prison. I really need a better name for it. It still sucks, and people suck, and it's exhausting, but I'm getting better at it. )

On the downside, there has been life drama, and between that and training I've been too exhausted when I finally get home at night to do much but make dinner, check updates, read or play video games for an hour or two, and go to bed. Still haven't managed the bedtime thing yet, either.

Life drama centers around the car this month, which has apparently decided it hates October. )

So for today, there is food, and relaxing. Possibly Sherman and Mr. Peabody, because I wanna see it.

After that, who knows.

* When my supervisor asked me if I would cross-train, he assured me that this line is a lot of black-and-white issues. HAH.
** Someone made a crack at me the other day: "It's something you wouldn't understand: it's called a social gathering." I still can't wrap my mind around why she said it. It felt very high school, and I suddenly felt very old.)
*** Fucker started following me right after I'd slowed down because I realized I'd accidentally been speeding before I noticed him, caught up with me almost half a mile later and paced me to check my inspection sticker in the window, then pulled me over to give me a ticket for the sticker. When I showed him the paperwork for the fail the day before, he took my license and insisted he *had* to write me up for it. Even though I told him I work while the DMV is open, and I specifically took next Friday off to go deal with it. (Which is not why, but I will be.) -Still so pissed-

Two weeks ago, I received an e-mail from my last temp agency. I wasn't sure what to make of it. )

I finally made a decision. And I decided I wanted to be happy.

I called them at the end of my lunch hour Friday. It took fifteen minutes: she pretty much confirmed that all my information on file was still valid, I had worked there before but there was nothing preventing me from returning, and the only thing they needed from me was a copy of my IDs. I was technically being hired as a backup for second shift in case someone didn't show up for orientation, but it was a good chance I'd be in. It turned out the reason I had trouble recognizing/finding their phone number was because it was actually from the agency's regional office, which happens to be in Arizona. I just needed to e-mail my IDs and confirm I'd be at the next morning's orientation. I called my work to tell them I was having car trouble and wouldn't be returning from lunch, because I needed to get these things taken care of today. (Ironically, the car did start smoking. She hates stoplights in summer.)

It felt like a great weight had been lifted from my shoulders at that point. Because it was done. I decided that my happiness was more important to me than my paycheck, and it was the right decision. I could feel it.

And then the Saturday Orientation happened. )

I'm ...

Well, there are a lot of emotions for me right now.

I'm pissed. I'm I-want-someone-fucking-fired-for-this-bullshit pissed. I confirmed over the phone that I was previously employed; I confirmed twice in the orientation that I was previously employed. People are being fired for shit like pulling up personal information on company computers, and you're telling me that the only reason I can't come back is because I didn't rank high enough? That you shouldn't have wasted my time, gotten my hopes up, and made me lose out on four hours of pay because oops you shouldn't have fucking contacted me in the first place? FUCK YOU.

I'm hurt. Heartbroken, really. Because I got my hopes up that I could go back to the company I adored, and the job I enjoyed, and all the friends there that I miss. I decided that being there was more important to me than making more money, only to be told I can't because I'm not good enough to work there. I was excited about work again. I was planning to work on my game this weekend, and figuring out all the things I'd need to do and be ready for on my first day of training. And now I'm not. Because I'm just not good enough.

I've been trying to fight off depression by being logical. I still have a job. I can keep looking for another position within the company, and hope that something comes up. I can keep looking for work elsewhere. I'm not out on my ass again, like I was before. It just means that everything is the same as it was last week.

But logic isn't as helpful as we'd like it to be when all you want to do is scream and rage and cry because everything is wrong and isn't getting better after all.

P.S. To everyone who posted for PR Day, THANK YOU! So many lovely stories! ♥ I will get to reading and commenting soon. I just ... need some time first.

So, about a month ago now, I had what was possibly The Worst/Best Interview of My Life.

I had applied at this place (which turned out to be a temp agency) for a data entry job. They called me, said actually the job is like an hour away from you, how 'bout we put you in for this work-at-home job instead.

I said sure, and went in for an interview. See the above link.

Cue backstory of the runaround. )

And for the past week, I've been in training to work at a call center. It's through the temp agency, which ... I don't know that I like them. I'm really leery of how reliable they are when they never respond to me (There were also issues with time cards, and I was not the only one they weren't answering), and they're just ... flakey? The company they hired me to work at seems a lot nicer though, and the trainers have all assured us it's a great place to be.

As for the job itself, my feelings on it are mixed. )

I'm working in the mornings again, which means I have about three and a half hours after I get home to eat dinner and relax before I have to sleep. (Seriously: if you see me on YahooMessenger after 9:00 Central US, tell me to get the hell to bed. I haven't managed it yet. x.x) I have Saturday and Sunday off, which is both pleasant and inconvenient, as I kind of enjoy not working on weekdays. It makes getting things done easier. But I do get Sundays off with Shi-chan, which is good, because otherwise we'd never see each other. I should switch to a mid-morning shift in three more weeks, which will hopefully be easier to work with.

In the meantime, I'm still not sure how this is going to work out, but I'm doing my best to be patient with it. I'll hope for the best, and try to stay positive. I suppose we'll see.

My awesome job as a Secret Agent for The Borg has ended.

I wasn't fired or anything - the assignment as a temp ended. But they didn't hire me. I found out yesterday that the reason was my 'overall metrics', despite the fact that they REPEATEDLY told everyone that they don't hire based on that. And they don't want me back when they need more help later.

I'm bummed, to say the least.

I spent the last week mourning the loss. I LOVED that job. I loved the people, I loved the company, and I loved what I did. I worked my ass off learning their products and trying to understand my customers and up my productivity. Losing out on it hurts, because I really *wanted* to be there.

There were downsides to it though, which I've been reminding myself of. For one, I've written barely a couple hundred words in the past *three months* while I was working there. I haven't been on Yahoo consistently for ages, because I only recently discovered that my computer can handle gaming and chatting at the same time. My temper has been shorter, due to stress from work and lack of outlets as I wasn't writing or chatting as much. I spent most of my days off trying to recoup my energy to deal with another week, and I was cranky and stressed if I didn't get that one full day to myself. I was constantly worn out from the amount of time and energy I was putting into my work and my customers and my co-workers.

I was really happy, though. For the most part. -Sighs-

The good news is that I'm still employed by my temp agency. I talked to my handler yesterday, and apparently I'm high priority to get into a job now, which is good. Turns out they love that I finished my assignment with perfect attendance, didn't do anything specifically 'wrong' there, and I have admin experience. I'm still job hunting on my own, because I'm leery of how long it's going to take them to actually *get* me into a position, but I did get serious cred with them from this, so. That's worth a lot.


So I've been playing lots of Harvest Moon and things and reading fic. Browsing internets. Trying to get ideas for my Power Rangers Universe Building Exchange assignment. I'm finally halfway through re-watching Masked Rider, and have developing headcanon and the beginnings of a fic. Just two more spinoffs and eighteen seasons of PR to go!

It's not the end of the world, and I'm getting over it. I'm just ... not quite there yet.

1. Frozen could have easily been a slash movie. Depending on your mindset, it could still be.

2. The above thought occurred to while contemplating potential prompts for [community profile] queer_fest. I really loved doing it last year, and I'm particularly proud of what I wrote. I've contemplated a few prompts to suggest, but I'm kind of hesitant. Is anyone else planning to do it this year? Who might be willing to claim a few PR prompts for me? -Bats eyelashes hopefully-

3. This is the PRSM Easter Box of Awesome )
I found it at Wal-Mart with Shi-chan late one night and decided It Must Be Mine. Yes, that is a stuffed Red Ranger in there. I have named him Captain Marvelous*, and he currently sits on my desk at work.

4. Work continues to be both FUCKING AWESOME and incredibly stressful. )

5. My work schedule now leaves me with a few hours off in the evenings, and Tuesdays and Wednesdays off. (As far as I'm concerned, this is the best schedule possible. Excluding transportation issues, obviously.) I've been trying to do work-related homework a bit and keep up with chores on my weeknights, which is ... kind of working out. This weekend I decided to be anti-social for a day just to 'recharge', so to speak, and then spent today working on fics and chatting. I may try keep this up: I feel *way* better about going to work tomorrow than I did last week.

I had other random thoughts, but for now I'm off to bed, because SLEEP.

* Captain Marvelous because as much as he's supposed to be Troy, Captain Marvelous is a much better name for a mascot/cheerleader.

Today in my training class my trainers took a moment to introduce us to the Memorial Guide.

There's several memorials in the game that leave tribute to someone. Former employees, deceased players, even a Make a Wish Foundation-made Quest. They're different things. One's just a jar of ashes with a description when you click on it. One is a large tomb for a deceased player, complete with that player's main character laid out on it, at rest with his sword on his chest. Some are things the company made, and some were requested by a players on behalf of someone else, such as the tomb.

The Memorial Guide itself is an online fan-made thing, but it's through a site that the company endorses and refers people to. There's a map of all known memorials throughout the game, and lists each of them. Each listing has the name, location, object or quest, and a short piece about the person it's for. There's even a request at the bottom asking for people to send in any memorials they've missed. A lot of the stories brought tears to my eyes.

It doesn't entirely make up for yesterday.

But it restored my faith in the company. Maybe they're not *all* assholes.

My Yahoo Horoscope for today was very appropriate:

Your secret life may be more interesting than your public persona today -- so indulge in whatever you do that's just for you. Your energy is great, and you may ponder opening up somewhat.

It wasn't a conscious decision to follow through with the suggestion of something just for me, but in the midst of cleaning the apartment (Shi-chan's mom's is coming for a visit, and her plane lands ... well, she's probably in the airport by now.), I found myself reaching for my mini-notebook while I was taking a break. I'd started a short Valentine's Day-themed Antonio/Jayden story a couple of days ago, while I was hanging out at work waiting for my ride home. I started typing it up, and the next thing I know it's finished and I'm adding to A Valentine for Everyone on Fanfiction.net and re-posting it on AO3.

It was a good idea, I think. I've spent most of the past week stressing about New Job and how much I don't know and what I need to do to know more. The last few nights were dedicated to research for New Job. I'm constantly thinking about it or talking to Shi-chan about something that happened or asking her about something I don't understand.

But today, I cleaned and wrote about Antonio sending Jayden valentines and watched PR slash vids. And I feel a lot less anxious about work than I have since I started. I still want to do continue my research, because if I'm going to be doing this job, damn it I am going to do it to the best of my ability. But right now? Just relaxing and thinking about fluffy Samurai things is very soothing.

Like, seriously. Really.

I applied at a staffing agency at the beginning of the week that Shi-chan recommended to me, because her company happens to hire through it. (And guess who happened to be hiring?) I didn't think I'd get the job, because I wasn't sure I had quite enough experience for what they're looking for. And to be honest, I wasn't entirely sure if I wanted it. I *LOVE* this company, but I've always been hesitant about whether I'd fit in there. I pretty much applied because NEED MONIES.

Yesterday I got a call to set up an interview for this morning, and was told if I passed the interview, I'd start on Monday.

Turns out, 'pass the interview' means show up with two forms of ID, watch a safety video, and tell them what related experience you have for the job.

I go back tomorrow morning for Q&A and to give them a headcount/assurance that yes, I really do want the job. I'll find out if I'm morning or evening shift then. (I personally prefer evenings, but it would be easier with transportation in the mornings, so we'll see.) Assuming there are no hiccups, I start my training on Monday.

Guys. I HAVE A JOB. \0/

I hate November. Have I mentioned that recently?

To be fair, this is actually the best November I've had in a long time. So much so that it's surprised me. Most of my Reasons are all ... -Handwaving- internal things. Brooding. Memories. Whatnot. It's what leads to me not being around much recently.

NaNo! )

Socializing! )

Physical Therapy! )

Shopping! )

It's been a busy couple of weeks, but in a good way. Busy means I can't think as much. And Thinking is Bad.

Today I'm browsing DeviantArt and doing laundry. I plan to stare at my Wordpad file for awhile in hopes of doing some writing, but we'll see. Beyond that? Meh. It's a laid-back day.

Stolen from [personal profile] starlit_purple. (Yes, I have no willpower. -_-;;;)

Name a fandom and I'll tell you which character I most likely:

1. bake cupcakes for:
2. trust with the keys to my car:
3. put thumbtacks on the chair thereof:
4. have a crush on:
5. pack up and leave if they moved next door:
6. vote for President:
7. pick as my partner in a buddy movie:
8. pair up:
9. vote off the island and into the volcano:
10. wheedle into fixing my MP3 player:

Potential fandoms are: Power Rangers, Supernatural, Chronicles of Narnia, Thunderbirds, Detective Conan/Case Closed, Fullmetal Alchemist, Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon, Gundam Wing, uh ... -Thinks and shrugs- I dunno. Name something and I'll answer if I know it well enough.


4313 / 50000 words. 9% done!

I'm still about 4000 words behind, my character has been wandering around vaguely like a drunk because he doesn't know WTF is going on and doesn't want to cooperate to get the story going, and I honestly have no idea what the hell is happening now anymore than he does. BUT THERE ARE WORDS ON THE PAGE AND I HAVE BEEN WRITING FOR FIVE DAYS IN A ROW SO I DON'T CARE! \0/

Still ow, but it's just sore again. More than it was before the weekend of moving, but nowhere near as bad as it has been, thankfully. Most of the pain still seems to be in my shoulder blades and on either side of my neck for now. Which is obnoxious, but livable.

In the meantime, back to writing! (Hopefully! -Crosses fingers-)
