I’m with my friend, when my ex calls me to chat. I explain that it isn’t a good time since it would be rude to talk to him and ignore my friend. He hangs up. My ex then texts me to say he is done trying to be friends.
That’s okay, I haven’t considered us friends in two years anyways. Kinda glad to be done with all the drama he brings in his life.
I can’t even go to the damn grocery store without getting harassed. It’s a warm 93 degrees today, so I decided to wear a skirt (slightly above knee length) to work. On my lunch break I go to the store to get a few things for dinner, and not sixty seconds after I walk in some creep blocks my path to tell me, “That’s a sexy dress you’re wearing.”
I glare at him and squeeze by to continue shopping. Ugh. I do not exist solely for the visual pleasure of others. I didn’t wear this skirt for anyone else but me because I felt like not being overheated.
Sometimes I really hate how the main first impression people have of me is based on my appearance and not my personality or other characteristics. I don’t have any control over how my genetics make me look, I do work on being knowledgable and fun.
I know I’m privileged to (mostly) fit into society’s views of what is attractive, but it gets overwhelming sometimes. I mean, really I just try to present myself in a way that makes me feel happy and I hate how that can get so quickly over ridden by some stranger’s inappropriate comment.
I’ve about had it with educating cis straight white males about why they’re privileged and how not to be jerks about it.
- Out of Shape - walk, then jog, avoid gyms.
- Unhappy at work - look for something new. Don’t shrug it off, don’t settle for what you have. You do not know what is out there. I have been through it.
- Lack of volunteering - don’t think…
I mean this in a non-aggressive manner, but this is extremely patronizing. I think you were trying to be helpful, but it doesn’t come off that way and I think you know that (see your apologetic last line). I actually already know what I need to do to positively progress in all those areas, hence the end part of the post. Your “advice” didn’t “help” me because none of it actually fits with the specifics of my situations. You’ve made a lot of assumptions about me and my lifestyle. As I said in the original post, it was just a matter of finding my own motivation, which I have done. In the future, I suggest you remember that not everyone thinks like you do, so don’t assume they’re like you.
I need a housemate who is as obsessed with DW as I am so I have someone to geek out with after each episode. It just isn’t as satisfying to text my friends who are into DW and wait for their responses/them to watch it.
I barely had any fresh fruit the last two days cus I didn’t have time to go to the store. I feel so gross and unfulfilled. Need to go after work ASAP!
My housemates are discussing if I’m a power top or power bottom. I’m sitting right here. Giggling at them. They’ll never know…heh.
I was playing video games and I look over at my housemates and they’re both asleep. It was cute/funny.
Wish this work day would end already
Today has been extremely stressful and I haven’t even eaten yet and I wish I was better at meditation so I could calm myself down. Bleh.
Just gotta remember that everything is okay, it isn’t the end of the world, and that I have a good life. *deep breath in* *deep breath out*
idek what I did to my email but now my inbox is empty. Fuck.
So my boss (male) forwards me an email from a reviewer who is asking for samples. He assigns me the contact duties for this reviewer. In the initial email to my boss, the reviewer is very friendly in tone. After I begin emailing him, he becomes curt and cold. *sigh* I can’t help but suspect this has something to do with the massive amount of sexism in the tech industry.
Perfect description of every morning.
