Fugg I am bad at coping and self-motivating.
It's now Wednesday morning. The bulk of this week has just sunk into a swamp of failure, procrastination, excuses and self-loathing.
I'm tryna make my way out of said swamp but my craft is just a flimsy little kayak tacked together from the few scraps of self-esteem and optimism I have left, and the closest thing I have to a paddle is this disgusting, congealed lump of unhealthy coping mechanisms.

Oh yeah and it looks like I'll be going to work with maybe two hours sleep again, if I'm lucky.

Had an appointment with an ophthalmologist today (yesterday) and of course they dilated my eyes and some other eye drop badness and now I can't sleep even worse than normal, already been up for more than 24 hours and no signs of slowing down.

Wouldn't even care but my boys go to school at normal hours like real people not horrible sleepless monsters like me, and then there's the matter of the two month old little girl who likes to scream at me for not being mama and I can't really deal anymore because my knees are finally ceasing to function properly leaving me barely able to get around the house.

Well Activision Blizzard is firing a bunch of people, like 8% or something.

I don't like this sort of thing in general.
I wish they'd fix maphack in SC2 rather than this.
Who cares if your shares earned 0.84 per share instead of $1.24 per share predicted. You are still making 2.4 Billion.

I know people who work at Blizz... That does sound like a rather sucky state of affairs.

For the dumb shit Blizzard has done on the consumer end of things, it did seem like it was a nice place to work.

Got 8-10 inches of snow last night. Mom needs to go see the doctor; dad thinks he hears fluid in her lungs, shes only being treated for flu so far. Now im nervous. My coworkers mother died last week of pneumonia, and i dont like that she could have two infections simultaneously.

It's not just that. If you don't control costs then the next guy will, and then you start losing contracts, or aren't as competitive on pricing, which puts the company in a death spiral. It's hard to win contracts if you don't control for costs, meaning hanging onto a lot of un-needed extra workers to be nice ends up meaning you have less work, not more.

See above, there was a huge drop in net income in the last year, almost a 75% drop in net income in one year. If profits fall by 1/3rd the amount of the previous year, that would push the company into running debts. Funnily enough, when your profits decline 75% in one year, that's a bad sign.

Games are not a commodity like Coca Cola or shoes or something, where you sell a predictable amount every year: it's entirely project-driven and reliant on getting "hits" in a fickle market. Big companies can die quickly. Give that some consideration.

I'mma come over there, drag you out on the town, and we shall pub-crawl our way across the region meeting as many potentially-attractive persons as possible whilst drinking as many beers as possible.
It'll be just swell.

I appreciate the sentiment, but I don't drink  ;D

That's the main problem. Not my lack of drinking, but that I have a lot of hobbies which I like to do in quiet by myself. I simply don't meet people, sigh.

It is Belfast, though, so if you want to come over for a boozin' I'm sure you'll get it XD

Well, you don't have to drink along the way. Up to you.
What, did you think I was going to be shouting all those beers?? Not bloody likely! Not even with those amazingly cheap drink prices over there.

Drunk-me has more than enough charisma to gain sufficient friends for two people.

I'm exhausted, I'm sick, and it's time for another exciting day of just scraping by instead of doing anything even remotely fulfilling. I'm being paid to waste my life in a building full of people I hate.
