Looking for new work makes me feel so deflated. There are jobs I could probably do but my lack of self-esteem makes me think that I'm in no way good enough to even try. I've only had two jobs since I was 15 (hospitality/customer service).

 

Also there is a blister, boil... something on my gum, and because of my broken wisdom teeth my mouth tastes like ass.

You won't know if you're good enough until you try. And even then, that won't mean anything for your self worth; I've been job searching for two months after finishing my degree and I've got nothing yet,

 

You won't lose anything to at least apply. Don't take it to heart if they don't answer back either. Recruiters are lazy bastards. Don't let them decide for you how much you are worth.

Amused:

I'm acting as an interface for the client company where I work with an external "business intelligence" company that offer tools to show some (mostly useless) code metrics with lots of colourful diagrams that please the managers.

They supposedly also do the support and integration with the companies' internal tools. The "internal" tool I'm concerned with, at the risk of making it possible for the BS BI company to identify themselves, is the totally obscure Visual Studio... (I don't know how they even got the contract without support for the outputs from VS. It's basically the only IDE used here...)

Today I received an email asking us to do something that they can and they should do themselves. Since I'm just a consultant, I didn't want to chew them out myself so I wrote a toned down version of what I wanted to say in reply and sent it internally to a higher-up in the client and added an estimation for the time needed if they decided that I should do the work the BI company asked for. Five minutes later, that higher-up sent a direct reply himself, with me in copy. He copied and pasted some of what I said and added a much more aggressive tone. It was basically what I stopped myself from sending.

That was very satisfactory and amusing to see.

Going to Denmark for a week for a 'seminar' in September. Boss will go too, so no funny business, but I still expect it to be fun.

I found one of these at work today:

I took a wild guess since it has Polska on it and figured it was probably from Poland. Was shocked to find out it was worth about $0.003. And I thought us making pennies was bad.

  • LocationCalifornia - what is this beach you speak of I live in the fooking desert

Went to a party today and was feeling pretty good. My plans were to come home relax and deal with the messes I made earlier tomorrow morning. Unfortunately after a brief stop at my Mom's she found a note from my brother. Left food in fridge send home with me as he will be crashing at my house.

 

He has a gig tonight so his phone is off and I don't know what time he plans to show up. Now I need to clean up the kitchen as I was baking for the party today and clean up the main bathroom as I shaved my head before running out the door. I also need to wash the sheets in the guest room as the last person that stayed was sick.

 

I think this is the definition of buzz kill as my buzz is now dead.

Oh, damn it all to hell. I seem to have gained not an insignificant amount of weight during the last few weeks.

This won't do.

He's gained a bunch of weight. I'm currently 15 lbs under the ideal weight for my size though. If I could I'd trade.

I have also gained some unwanted weight which seems to have settled around my midsection. I blame my urges to raid the pantry late at night for those I'm not really hungry but I'll find myself something to eat urges.

 

On an unrelated note I am feverish and my throat is killing me. I guess I had better make an appointment at the local Medical Centre. *Sigh* I do rather dislike being ill for no apparent reason.
