My partying student neighbours are having another party, so I can hear lots of people bellowing and if they stay true to form I expect this to go on until around 5am.

I've been hugely anxious about interactions I had with my boss's boss on Friday where I was unhappy with the way he was looming over my desk continually throughout the day, and not really knowing how to raise this with my boss.

And ongoing medical shiitake with a close family member. And. and and. etc.

Follow-up: I moved my mattress in to the hallway. I can still hear them faintly without ear plugs but with I think will be okay unless they get a lot more rambunctious.

Ugh, I am so tired. There were a series of huge bangs, like someone trying to kick a door down, at about 4am. I don't know if it was the party house or something else, but whatever it was has made me very grumpy today.

I am so sorry dropscones being over tired sucks. I also didn't sleep much and then got up at 6am to head out to work (yay sundays! where transit takes over an hour)

I feel for you dropscone. Being kept awake by persistent, inconsiderate noise is what makes me most grumpy.

Yeah, that is the worst!
This morning my cat tried to wake me up twice probably around 5am by clawing at my mouth. I sleep poorly as it is, and I have a stressful work day coming up. I actually started crying after she did it the second time, which is not a usual response for me to something like that, so clearly today has gotten on top of me a bit.

So sorry to read this Dropscone and Gunk. Being exhausted seems to make everything else ten times worse. Dropscone have you tried speaking with the police and environmental health? You don't have to put up with noise pollution like this. You could also report them to their university as well (yes I'm a mean stick in the mud I know but if it's affecting you it must be disturbing other people too)

Thanks for the sympathy, all!

That sounds like a very unpleasant awakening, gunk! I hope your day turns out not to be as stressful as expected or you manage to ride with it.

Star, I haven't got to that stage yet, I'm hoping they're just high spirited second years who will start buckling down to work and won't have so much time to party soon. I remember from my 101 days how difficult noise trouble can be to deal with sometimes so I'm reluctant to get into that but if it carries on then I will see what's to be done these days in terms of reporting.

Today I have a scheduled MIR as part of Workers Comp. The WC Doctor wants me to get an MIR to prove there is nothing wrong with my knee (she thinks it's a hip thing from 6 years ago), my physio wants to get a better picture of whats going on with my knee because they actually kinda saw it while it was still injured.. But basically the results of this MIR will determine if my status (and therefor coverage) stays open.

So there could be something seriously wrong with my knee and I get to keep treatment, payments and a return to work schedule. Or there could be something wrong somewhere else or nothing seriously wrong and then an investigation will open and my current physio & return to work plan will be scrapped or work might even try to schedule me back full time. I am trying really really hard to not worry about it because I know it will take about a week to hear anything, so it's all just kinda looming over head.

Finding out that my ex is dating someone. Hit me like a punch to the gut. And he treated me horribly. I don't know why I can't process this in a much more positive way. Maybe because the guy I'm dating is getting eerily quiet too. Pity party for one.

<3 Scooter, it is always rough to see people from you life moving on and I think a lot of those things take time, logic be damned sometimes stuff can suck even if it shouldn't.

I know it is rough SD and I know different things work for different people. For my last ex, I cut off communication completely. It didn't stop him from eventually emailing me but I didn't even read those emails for a while. I just figured I couldn't move on if we were in communication.

I did. Told him not to contact me. But told him to let me know when he started dating - thought it would make me happier & easier to forget about him. I was wrong.

I had a conference call this morning where I had to speak quite a bit and I totally sounded like a babbling idiot. I totally lost my mark (a few times) and just ended up rambling incoherently. Coooooool.

My coworker told my boss I have secret agendas and step on his toes when all I did was handle an incident on his behalf while he was out on vacation. I was designated as his backup too, and when he returned I updated him on the situation that morning. So... my boss dinged me for it on my annual performance review which determines my yearly raise. Yay! Glad to help you out, buddy!

I just looked at the program for the exhibition center I work for (in the cloakroom). Two of the events in the next months will be a hunting and fishing fair, and a bacon fest. Urgh. I don't dare miss work since I've just missed two months due to an injury right from my first day, and my boss has been especially nice and accommodating about it.

This is probably best suited for Vegan Pet Peeves but I'm putting it here because it completely wrecked my day. I went to a 1 day conference yesterday at a hotel. I marked on my reg form that I'm GF and Vegan. I get to breakfast yesterday and it is all pastries and fruit. Okay, fine. I can eat fruit, even though it doesn't really fill me up. By lunch time I am starving. I get to the line and it is all sandwiches and pasta salad (beautiful vegan options, though). The only GF thing on the entire line was potato chips. I asked one the hotel staff members if they had anything GF and they brought out a turkey sandwich on GF eggy bread. I asked why I couldn't have the vegan wrap filling by itself, which looked delicious, and he couldn't give me an answer, so I had potato chips and the piece lettuce and tomato from the sandwich, which I ate not thinking about the fact that it had touched meat because I was literally about to eat my arm off.

I really hate my GF requirement sometimes. I feel like I fight a big enough battle trying to fulfill that, because I can't help it, that it's just so hard to fight the vegan battle afterward. People act like I've already put them out enough with one inconvenience, I can just suck it up. It's not fair. Sorry for my whining.

Reina, that must be hard. I hate it when people ask about food restrictions beforehand, then ignore them. If they said from the start they cannot accomodate food restrictions, it would at least warn us to bring food with us.

I'm editing a paper I wrote a super long time ago and I forgot a lot about the work I did so it's super slow going. I'm having to refresh myself on the work.

I was home sick for 3 days and just got over it yesterday, so of course I started my period today.

Yesterday, various kind people unintentionally made me feel stupid, inadequate and untalented.

During the night, I dreamed that a bunch of cruel people was very deliberately doing so.

I woke up with my self-esteem lying in pieces on the floor.
