What a crappy batch of new applicants. Why, tell me, would you apply to an internship in HR having studied mechanical engineering and computer science, and not write a cover letter that explains your decision to apply? I mean, I'm all for considering people with no previous HR experience, if you show me why you're interested. Otherwise, I'll take your strange candidature as a copy-paste application with no interest.

Boston.com has a list of 'light' (for dieters, I think) meals. A good half of them that I've seen so far are at least vegetarian and of that half, 2/3rds are not obviously non-vegan. I haven't clicked into them, but there's no egg/cheese in the name/description.


Pretty cool, I think. And telling of the times, in a way?

So, my photoshoot yesterday went great, the pictures turned out well and I was pleased with the outcome.

Then another run-in with Douchey Co-Worker happened. You guys know the guy I mean, right? The one who harasses me and bullies me? Yeah. Well, he did it again. Then he stormed out of the office. So it's a new day, and I'm sitting here waiting to see how this will play out today. This guy is exhaaaausting. And like, he's older than my father, and yet he behaves like an absolute child towards me and all my co-workers. The snarky email he sent another co-worker yesterday over the same "issue" is priceless and so immature.

I went to lunch with my friends and feel really sleepy now, but I have training in 1.5 hours. I could really do with a nap.

Changed my class schedule and contacted my nutrition teacher, who is perfectly fine with giving me a week to go from an incomplete (and ultimately an F) to what she says will be a very strong grade if I submit my exam and project. I feel really good all of a sudden.

I don't like this version of all along the watchtower i'm listening to. It is a remastered version and it is shiitake.

I had a crazy uncomfortable wedgie for the first two periods today and now it's my prep period and I can finally pluck it out and LIFE IS SO GOOD.

I finished my tax return. The electrician fixed the sockets in the kitchen, so I don't have wires trailing everywhere now. We are having Vegideli chickn tikka bites for tea. And I am going to miss the snow forecast here for the weekend, because I'm going to Iceland where it is, apparently, unseasonably warm and there is no snow. How weird is that?

I know I complain about work here all the time, but I do have it pretty awesome. It just feels more natural to bisque about things than be positive about stuff. I was just thinking how nice it is to work somewhere that I actually like every single coworker. Proof that they are awesome:

M walks into room and says "J's listening to Nickelback" in a matter-of-fact voice. Everyone in room erupts in laughter.

For a while there, it was colder in Dallas (where my family lives) than it was here. I don't know how that was even possible.

I'm totally failing at one of my New Year goals - I set a goal to read for an hour every night, even if I'd got in some good reading time during the day. I've not done it once since I started back at work. In fairness, I'm already three weeks ahead on my reading list, but I need to step it up and finish at least a book a week or I'll fail like I did last year. I know I have a few easy ones ahead (new Camilla Lackberg in March and Charlaine Harris in May), but that shouldn't allow me to spend 2 weeks on a book I should be able to finish in one.

I have this problem at work. I feel like all I talk about is negative stuff with people and I want to stop but that entails me to just stop talking to people altogether. I don't understand small talk too much but I try to engage in it at work so that my co-workers don't think I'm a snob or anything but it always ends up coming out negative and/or awkward. I never know what to say to people or how to respond. I think I'm just going to pull back and be my quiet self because I think I'm trying too hard and it ends up just being weird and off-putting.

So if I got six new underwears, does that mean I can throw away six ratty ones? I feel like the answer is yes, but for some reason I also feel like if I ever throw away underwears I'll find myself one day going to grab a fresh pair and being out!

I'm like this too! I'm just socially awkward, really. I'll end up complaining about a squirmy dog or weird customer just to make conversation. I do make an effort to ask about their lives and stuff, just so I don't sound all ME-ME-ME all the time. And it's kind of weird that I feel old there, and I'm only 24. Almost everyone is like 18 to early 20s and still in college.

I never throw away underwear while it's remotely wearable. And when it's full of (unintentional) holes I use it for dusting.

ok, so, people who are forking students at the libraries I work at just shouldn't be allowed to recall books that I have out on loan. It's just too damn inconvenient for me to bring them back. I DON'T CARE IF YOU'RE TRYING TO LEARN STUFF!!

ditto. this week i finally tossed a pair of seven-year-old knickers because my fingers went right through them as i was trying to pull them up, and i decided they were too holey even for rag use.

Some of these underwears are like a decade old! I never wanted to throw them out because I loved them so much when they were new, fit me perfectly, great style and fabric... but now they're like light grey even though they're supposed to be black and there are multiple holes in various seams. I always hoped I could find the same ones again but I never could. :( I do sort of feel like, however, if I would never want someone to see me in any of my underwears, then I should not have them.

Almost everyone is like 18 to early 20s and still in college.

I'm used to people just offering up information about themselves without me asking so I never know what to ask them. Other people seem so much better at asking me questions than I am about asking them. Usually the way it happens is they'll ask me something and I'll kind of go from there. I also know that I'm a very private person so I don't want to pry too much into other peoples lives. I also never know what to ask them.

Another reason I end up complaining to people is that I'm usually trying to bounce an idea off of them. I'll tell them about a co-worker, a situation or a customer or something and I want to know if it's just me who feels this way, or is this situation normal, etc. I don't think they get that's what I'm doing though and I just come off as grumpy (I am but maybe not the way they interpret it).

I have one co-worker who can talk to people so naturally and it is the weirdest and incredibly interesting thing for me to watch. He tries to help me out with talking to people but I always have to consciously think about what I'm going to say before I say it whereas he seems so natural and fluid about it.

my underwear collection is divided into piles based on how ashamed i would be if anyone ever saw them. there are some pairs that i won't wear if i'm going to be leaving my apartment, because if i got hit by a car and EMTs had to cut them off my body, all their hard work would go to waste when i died of shame after being resuscitated. but i won't get rid of them, because if i had half as much underwear i'd have to go to the laundromat twice as often.
