    Seriously. Pretty much everyone I know is going through a hard time as well. Emotionally, financially, health-wise, etc.


    'nother vent:
    My birthday is on the 4th and I'm dreading it. It just reminds me I'll be totally an official adult (21) and I haven't accomplished anything I wanted to by now. I'm not anywhere near close to being able to move out, I don't drive, I don't go to college, I never even technically graduated from high school. My family and teachers all had such high hopes for me and all I'm doing is showing them what a huge failure I am. :/

    I hate living with this disability. I just want to function like a normal-ish person.

    Bought a cute warmup jacket at Costco for $20, it's danskin brand (well known back in my skating days) and I got it in pink.

    Get home and realize it came in black too and I need a new jacket for agility with my club logo. Derp should've got the black version too, especially for $20. Now I have to convince someone to escort me back to Costco to get one because I don't have my own membership.

    We are supposed to get 6+ inches of snow through tomorrow....

    Pretty sure last time I checked, we officially entered May today. And I am pretty sure we had near 80 degree weather a few days ago sooo this is completely sickening. I am completely stir crazy. At this rate, we MIGHT get a couple months of decent weather. Assuming it doesn't go straight into 90 degree humid weather after the snow melts. :rolleyes:

    And my orange juice upset me today. It was a brand new jug. I twisted the cap off but there was no seal underneath. Like, the cap was "glued" as it should be on a brand new bottle, but usually there is another seal you have to remove. But there wasn't one. And even though I feel like I should assume it's fine and drink it anyway... I just can't. And I really really wanted some pulpy OJ with my toaster strudel this morning.

    ...I've never had a second seal under my OJ lid? But anyway, you can take it back to the store and exchange it. It doesn't help you this instant, I know, but at least you'll get your OJ eventually ;)

    I had a really crappy day at work today (or should i say year) and tomorrow promises to be even worse :(

    to top it off i had a class tonight for work (yuck - nicest day of the year and I'm stuck inside with people I'm not getting along with), which I made sure to tell my brother about and asked if he could watch the dogs. I got home tonight, and he stuck a note on my door. A very nasty note from "an annonomys neighbor" about bailey barking and next time they would call the dog warden. I don't know who to be more mad at, Bailey for barking, my brother for saying he'll be home to watch them, or one of my neighbors for being a chicken/ass. I don't see what a warden would do, technically, there's no noise ordinance until 9pm.... and I genuinely am sorry, but still. :(

    I've never had these problems before :(

    I woke up sick. Ice cream obviously didn't help.

    My bed is far too cozy, especially since I just put fresh bedding on it yesterday. I need to go and do my run but I wanna just sleep. The promise of sleep when I come back is not convincing my brain.

    We have a special weather statement about funnel clouds being spotted, with a warning that they might touch down and you should be prepared to take shelter at any moment.
    We also now have a severe thunderstorm warning, with a note after the quarter-inch hail and 60 MPH wind gusts, that funnel clouds have been spotted with this storm.

    And yet no tornado watch...

    Ummmm doesn't it seem like we should be having a tornado watch too?? Because funnel clouds are being spotted apparently ALL OVER town?


    I just called home to make sure my dad was there because I'm worried about P. I asked him if he could let him out of his crate if he starts freaking out and he said he would watch him. Poor Baby P.

    Also my head is acutely aware that a storm is rolling through and feels like it might EXPLODE.

    Nineteen dogs here today, some daycare, some training, all very noisey and I'm still sick. I'm tired and hungry but not sure what I want to eat. I have two classes tonight, a puppy preschool with four and a training basics with nine. I really hope this new trainer interview goes well, we need another employee.

    My mind is screwed up. All I wanted was to feel comfortable in my body. I have worked so hard at this. I'm now in a size 10 - which was my goal when I started. I'm simply curvy and I'll never be a size 4 and look good.

    But when I look in the mirror, I still see the size 18. I KNOW I lost the weight, I KNOW I'm smaller, but yet I don't see it at all.

    Summer is being super extra snuggly which in itself is a great thing except the entire time my mind is on her birthday, which is coming up in less than a month. So I feel sad, even though she's being a doll. Why can't dogs live forever? Why do they have to get old?

    And logically I know she's not 'old' and she's healthy and happy and active but still... 9 years... it doesn't seem right.

    Dear Job Applicants,

    First off, where are the millions of you that have asked if we are hiring when we weren't? We've had an incredibly low number of applicants for a posted job.

    Yes, we are hiring for the pet department. For my job in fact. You are speaking to the correct person and probably should not be rude. I am the one that will recommend to my boss that she interview you or not...in fact, my boss will not hire someone if I don't like you too.

    Please don't allow your mother to bring you in and do all the talking for you while you look at your feet. I might have considered you if I had heard any words come out of your mouth. If you are applying for a full-time job you are old enough not to have Mom escort you in. Not hired.

    Please don't wear pajama pants, gym clothes, sweat pants, ratty clothes, and so forth even if you are just turning in an application. It pretty strongly makes it look like you don't care if you get a job. Not hired.

    If you can't spell, use a dictionary or spell check on word to fill out the application. We shredded the 10 applications that had basic words misspelled (they had nothing else going for them either). Not hired.

    If you can't sign the application or fill out ALL the information (three references! THREE!), I will take that as laziness or lack of attention to detail. Not hired.

    You should NEVER put "Didn't get along with my boss/coworkers" as a reason for leaving your job. Not hired.

    Sigh...you just can't find good help anymore. Anyone want a full time job with benefits?
