I figure it's worth noting that I ended up quitting my job a few days ago. Boss was railing on me especially hard for some bullshit and when I told him that I wasn't feeling good and wasn't in the mood and that he should just be quiet and leave me alone he started being more of a dick so I told him to do this shit himself and walked out, telling him he wasted my time and I have no respect for him.

"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Just lost my fucking wallet and I don't know whether I'm pissed at myself or just depressed.

Are you sure there's no hope of finding it?

Might be on a school bus, but they said they checked it "thoroughly". Might be able to check it early in the morning though. Had my licence and my school ID, some cash, some random gift cards, my debit card (if I don't find it tomorrow I'll cancel it), and my house key. My mom is getting paranoid that someone had taken it and is going to break into the house so she's going to get a new lock for the door -_-

Today just kinda sucks, I was supposed to skip a calculus test (which would give me needed time to study for it), but school was cancelled so I'll be having tomorrow.

I went on a trip to the state capital to play violin for a bill signing, I didn't take a route to school or anything. I'm going to try to get up before they leave to get kids (someone will probably be a raging asshole and take it if they found it, assuming it even is in the bus).

Edit: Found my wallet on the bus this morning, everything still there. Woop and whatnot.

....Damn. That's the courage I wish I had right now : ( I work three jobs, but I'm only getting paid for two (one broadcasting sports, one in master control at station, one in a deli, and I also go to school-- long story on it all). I've been pushed to the edge in the deli because I asked to transfer to another store and apparently that's cardinal sin.

That's balls right there to walk out. *applauds* v__v; Takes a lot of courage to give up a steady paycheck whatever the amount.

Why are you still working for the one where you don't get paid? Internship?

It's a bit of an explanation. The two I don't get paid for are 1. in my field, and 2. going to open doors for me when I graduate this coming May.

I work at one of the many PBS stations in the country, training as an engineer. I do everything from running master control, to working the studio during live productions, to building transmitters, cables, and whatever equipment they can teach me to weld together. I am an intern there. I have to put in 35 hours each week at the station to make sure I clock in all my hours before the end of the semester. I'm trying to finish my hours early, so I can take a few weeks after I finish but before I'm hired to finish my senior thesis. I can't promise I'm actually going to work there, because the boss man has contacts elsewhere he's been talking to, and I've also got an offer from a commercial station looking for a full time video photographer and production assistant. So the experience I'm getting at the station now is really going to pay off one way or another.

Okay, job 2 is working for ESPN3. Right now I work the live productions as head student technician for my school's basketball season. I've worked every single basketball game throughout the season save one (I was rly sick.) I've had to put in a lot of hours to become head student tech, but I'm also the first name my producer has handed to some recruiters as well as to his boss at ESPN. My school requires you to work 80 community service hours to grad, so I was being rewarded with service hours for working these games. However, I'm well past my 80 hours by now, and I'm just finishing up the season. We usually have two games each week. We're nearly finished, and several recruiters have come around to pick people up for baseball spring training, and I've been one of them, and it's paid big money too. ($350+ a game, 8hr shifts, 7 games a week. You work forever, but it's good money.)

Third job is the one that is paying my bills >__>; And that's the torturous job of working at the deli. It wasn't always torturous. Just that my assistant manager, Joe, who was killing himself and working 70 hours a week to make up for how horribly his boss was mismanaging the deli, was promoted a few months ago and works at a different store now. Our new assistant manager is absolutely wretched and the place has gone to hell faster than I imagined it would. I put in about 32+ hours each week. I tried to ask for a transfer because I simply can't take the stress of the job any more. I've had so many panic attacks, and I never used to get them. I don't sleep. I've thrown up. I can't deal with it anymore. And I've been working there for 2 1/2 years now. But only over the past 8 months has it really been so horrible I finally asked to transfer. I've bent over backwards because I care about the deli. I really do. I'm proud of the things I've learned at the deli. I've learned and had so much practice in chopping a million different things, and I can make all sorts of platters and recipes. I am the only person in my deli fully trained in specialty imported cheeses. I'm trained and in the past I held 4-hour long cheese tastings, and I went all out sampling cheeses from all over the world to all sorts of customers. I've partnered with several companies to hold wine/cheese demos. I can do any task in the deli from getting the supply truck, to running the kitchen and fryers, to making platters and party trays. Everything. I love it and I'm proud of it. But my manager is fuuuucking ruining it. I haven't done anything with specialty cheese in 6 months >__> She needs to hire more people and she just WON'T.

I work very, very hard IRL. But it's not really all that bad. I'm used to working a lot anyway, since my parents have absolutely no money. I have paid my way through college and I support myself and everything. Truth be told :/ I have issues with people. I just can't deal with em, socially I mean. I can work hard, and that's enough for most people. Managers and coworkers may not like me, but they're respect me and want me because of how hard I can work. But I haven't had friends in like...three years. Ever since I got back from being overseas. There is one kid, and I'll go to his house to play on his fancy desktop gaming computer. But I really haven't even seen him in six months cuz I'm busy.

I keep myself busy so I don't have time to sit around and be lonely.

This is what disappoints me about America. A person shouldn't have to work so hard just to scrape by and be in debt. Imagine if that insane work ethic of yours could be devoted exclusively to education. It'd be so much better for yourself and society as a whole. I don't know if that'll make you feel better or worse, but once you get out of this crappy stage of life and get out of debt I can see your work ethic really taking you places.

Update:

As most of the people who freuqent this thread know by now I had a fear of lesbians.

However I took alot of your advice and over time ,such as going to a few LGBTQetc meetings within my school, and just talking gradually easing my tension, everyone was actually really nice and understanding about my issue seeing that I held absolutely no malice towards any of them. I got better at dealing with it and my fear began to dissapate, there is still slight unease but it is no where near as bad as it was when I first revealed my fear last year.

Q is just for queer from what I know, and it seems like it can basically be used by anyone who does not identify as a cis heterosexual person
