Jordan.

Jordan and I lived in the same apartment complex. It was welfare housing, where they stuck all the poor people in the shittiest part of town. Camoflauging the yard with a pretty green picket fence, and a playground for the kids. Make it look nice,...

The Time Traveler

I saw an older woman yesterday, she was making her way through Rite Aid. I looked up at her in a moment and she looked back at me and looked, well, shocked. Her eyes widened comically and she stopped walking, staring at me for a split second.    ...

my job...

So a homeless woman just walked into the office and is refusing to leave. I tried to tell her that this place is a place of work and that we don't have showers and she insisted on trying to use the bank bathroom to clean up, I had to tell her that she...

3pm slump

It is 3pm and I've had no caffeine today. I've had a lot of water and a little bit of food. I'm tired and the day has about an hour left...    I've gotten no work done. I've spent the majority of my day staring at my computer and wondering what...

internet and work

The internet was out all week at my office, and so I did a lot of work from home at my kitchen table. Then, finally the internet came back up and I am sitting in this office with three other people, and none of us are talking, and it's a little...

I got PAID

I got paid. My bank tried withholding it, which is why I thought I didn't get paid. I am closing my account out tomorrow (the only time they would let me) and then starting a new one elsewhere.    I can't wait to actually leave this place. The...

not getting paid

We aren't even getting paid at this point. For AmeriCorps. They also have no idea when we will get paid, yet I am still expected to work. I want to refuse. For one, they were supposed to send us a warning email if we wouldn't ge paid, then they aren't...

Working from home

The internet at my regular office is just not working, and of course no one can fix it. I'm stuck working from home. The downside? My dad won't leave me alone. He seems to think me working from home means that he can just come up and bother me when he...

dreams. what they mean.

I had a horrible dream. I was stuck. In this weird world. My mother was me, and so was my family. But I wasn't the same. I was in crippling debt. I fell in love with a selfish man who was so thin he could disappear at the right angle. There was a...

Good day.

I had a good day, so far.  First I felt sick, and then I felt better, proving that illnesses can probably be due to stress sometimes. I ended up going with Rachel to table at a middle school for an event coming up in a month. Then we went out to...

the coworkers and the last straw

Today I had to go to meetings. Unfortunately I own no nice clothes for 80 degree weather, and no shoes beyond sneakers and boots. So I ended up in my lion t-shirt and old jeans. It didn't matter though.    Because Elyse, she made another comment...

The Day I've had so far...

1. It turns out that my coworkers really fucking hate me. I tried being nice and asking to go on their weekly lunch. Got ignored, well one person said they wanted to go to lunch with me later.  2. I am working in this silent office. No one is...

Birthdays and Buddies

So it has occured to me that my best friend's birthday is in about two weeks. She is turning 24 on the 22nd. As always she is holding a party, and wants to invite her closest friends. Though that selection of people seems to dwindle down every time I...
