Hello internet friends!
I’m fried. Between work and other life nonsense, I’m feeling pretty burned out. It’s actually mostly because of work. I’ve been unhappy in my job for a while, and the powers that be have implemented some changes to mitigate our misery, but ultimately, I work in customer support. Support reps everywhere are routinely raged at, insulted, threatened and demeaned, and our members have no qualms about doing all of the above. There’s not much that our management can do about terrible people who treat us like their emotional punching bags. My only saving grace is that I don’t have to talk to anyone on the phone.
So, what’s next? It’s almost spooky season, so I have some creepy adventures planned. I’ll also be home visiting and going to events that require makeup, so I’ll be continuing to test out the stuff from my birthday haul. There were gift cards so I had to shop, and it was lovely. I’m really good at spending money that isn’t mine.
I’m also going on a bunch of trips: a few home, of course, but I’m also hoping to go see my Wife and Wife-in-law. In October I’m going to Austin for a conference, like a real adult with a career. I’ve never been to Texas, and work let me pad my trip with an extra day so I have a little time to explore. I’m looking for creepy things to do. It’s going to be amazing, and I’ll get some barbeque.
So what are you up to? Anything cool happening in your world?
