Wow, there's a lot of misfortunes among GOF members lately. I hate seeing others in bad times dino_neutral.gif.

As for me, I'm feeling like my sense of security has been compromised, and true to my Cancerian nature, that's a major bad feeling to have. First of all, they're cutting our hours at work to give new hires hours, which is very unfair. Considering I am one of the employees responsible for inventory and ordering product, this makes it harder on those of us who have more responsibilities to handle in less time. On top of that, I've got freakin' bills to pay.

Then, I thought I was going to have a start in my real career by now. I was called to schedule an interview, but then was never called back. I've since called and had to leave a message, and that was almost two weeks ago and still nothing. Not even a "Sorry, but we hired someone else." I know that could only mean something better will come along, but it's frustrating nonetheless in-frustrated.gif.

Yeah, gotta love that feeling of uncertainty dino_confused.gif.

Kind of bitter, but reassured. This guy that I was really close with just kind of broke our friendship. Without a really good reason. I'm at a sleepover with my friend, and we were skyping and the connection was really bad, so the call got dropped, and I tried calling him, but it wasn't working. We had to go do something, and he was like, "No, don't go," and then he was like, "Forget it, I don't wanna see or talk to you again." And I'm like, "Dude, WTF?"

So, yeah, a bit ticked off because of that, but reassured that I'm not like some girls who can't get over a relationship.

I feel really hectic and busy, and also kinda bad that I haven't been around much lately. sad.gif

But college will be out for me on may 15th, and then I'll have a lot more freetime again.

I am highly tempted to smoke pot or slightly OD on my antidepressants (30 mg instead of my usual 20 mg) or take my usual dose of antidepressant and then wash it down with strong tea or stay up for a few days straight.

Why? I want a mind altering experience. Granted, I have been experiencing some pretty funky dreams lately.

Maybe there are ways to accomplish such an experience without the need to risk getting addicted to some drug or anti-depressant?

I have bats*** crazy dreams all the time, but getting into dream interpretation and deciphering them has helped me tremendously.

Antidepressants, believe it or not, aggravate weird dreams and nightmares, and they're just not good to be on unless your life depends on it. I stopped taking any conventional medicine a few years ago, and I have never felt healthier wink.gif. I just realized I had to change my circumstances and who I associated with, because that's what causes the majority of depression. The rest, who tends to be genetic, I find healthy ways to channel those feelings, usually by working out, creative hobbies, or meditation. I would not condone drug use, aside from maybe ONE drink of alcohol, but that too is for health reasons (wine is heart-healthy smile.gif).

Have you thought about deep meditation? That works for me.

I need antidepressants during the school year or else my OCD essentially cripples me or worse, I become suicidal. I don't take them during the summer as my symptoms vanish. Luckily, the antidepressant I take is one of the weakest ones on the market.

Of course, I have found that drinking massive amounts of strong black tea and listening to goa trance produces some funky effects too. And so does sleep deprivation. Of course, entering the "twilight zone" between sleep and wakefullness and then waking up thwn going back to sleep produces interesting effects too.

----------

Right now, I am slightly tired.

Feeling empty after having to say goodbye to a friend once again. Also kind of tired so most likely going to bed now. On top of that I have a cold, but that is my own fault for being outside last saturday while it was raining the whole day dino_tongue.gif

Ughh... dreading the thought of having to job hunt for a full time teacher role. I kinda took a bailout after applying for a classroom assistant role this year because I didn't feel ready to take on a whole class of kids. I love the school I'm in at the moment and the staff love me but there aren't any teaching posts going and my training is only valid for a few years. If I don't complete my Newly Qualified Teaching (NQT) year, my training becomes nil and void. On top of that, applying for teacher roles is an overly complex and daunting system of applications, interviews, re-interviews and lesson demonstrations. If you happen to have an inside track to a teaching position i.e. the people know you, it's pretty much a bump up with very little hassle (which is what I was hoping for). Oh well... nothing to it but to do it right?

Oh, okay smile.gif.

And Littlefoot1616, I totally understand how frustrating it is to look for work in your dream career in-frustrated.gif.

As for me, I'm feeling frustrated. Not just because of my continuing job hunt saga, but also because of a friend of mine. They live in another state, so we keep up on FB. This is a childhood friend of mine, and we both share a history of being bullied. However, they continue to carry that baggage with them, along with a failed marriage and family drama, and everytime I go on FB I see something pessimistic posted by them. It gets really depressing, but I'm especially offended by the last thing they posted about not trusting ANYONE. Considering we lost contact after high school and only within the past year reunited via Facebook, I had nothing to do with their personal life or their poor choices they made along the way, so I find this repulsive of them dry.gif. I don't know how to tell them to get over the past that can't be changed and make their future different without them going into victim mode and saying some smarta** remark dino_roll-eyes.gif.

Serris, I humbly suggest that you don't OD. Maybe try to drink the tea instead.

I hope you feel better Iris. And I wish good luck to all who are searching for jobs right now.

Cancerian Tiger, I'm sorry that this happened to you. I can't really give any advice on this, since I am the absolute worst at people skills. dino_oops.gif


I got my car back finally yesterday (sans mirrors, of course dry.gif ), so at least I can leave the house if I needed to. I think the reason I've been feeling so down in the dumps lately is because I've been stranded at home, only going out if my parents were. Not that I crave the outside world or anything, but if my family needed me I couldn't go and help them.

Frustrated about jobs. I understand good things come to those who wait, but I'm finding it hard to be patient lately in-frustrated.gif.

Worried. I just recently visited my grandmother, and I learned she had cancer and is losing her appetite. I really hope she gets better.

After seeing what the well known Conversion Bureau author Chatoyance has been saying and reading some of her stories... Creeped out.

How can someone hate Humanity so much?

She's completely f---ing nuts!
