Seconded - best of luck to both of you.

Woke up today feeling low . . .

My mom came and visited last week and pulled out the stops on the forms of abuse that she feels comfortable using on me when I'm suicidally depressed (as opposed to the ones that seem fair to her when I'm capable of fighting back). So on top of everything else I'm dealing with, I now know that I'm a disappointment because I'm fat(ter), she wants me to live nearer to her, oh and she wishes I was involved with a guy. And she made a big drama when she was leaving out of "if something happens to me while I'm driving home, you have to forgive me!"

She thinks the problem I have is that I'm not bored enough yet with being depressed, heh. And that I should realize she needs me because she is depressed, so then I wouldn't be depressed.

(The irony of the fact that my being depressed doesn't cause her to rally and yet she is expecting the reverse to occur with someone less than half her age is ripe and wasted on her).

She even asked me why I'm so fucked up compared to my friends.


Anyway, here's some other nasty shit that happened this week:
- Classes started and one of the instructors opted to wear a face shield instead of a face mask, which is not permitted but oh well
- Classes started. I'm exhausted.
- Rude fellow TAs ordering me around and telling me to email people for their own problems (switching sections with me), fuck that.
- Haven't had time to cook, keep being so tired that I fall asleep with teeth unbrushed.
- Still fucking miserable after being kicked out of a martial arts dojo for being "too undisciplined" as of a couple months ago and struggling to find somewhere else to exercise
- Yesterday morning in the space of an hour I:
-- Made it most of the way to school and found out that I had brought incompatible pieces of two different bike locks
-- Accidentally dropped my backpack, which cracked the screen of the phone inside
-- Got a puncture in one of my tires when I finally made it to school

Also, my therapist finished his internship without actually getting enough hours to become licensed, so now he's stressed out because he doesn't have enough clients; and on top of that apparently feels like teletherapy makes it impossible to correctly do his job. I want to yell at him about how useless he's being but somehow I don't feel able to do that?

Also, I think I may have just accidentally walked in on my landlord masturbating.


/bay/, I feel like I need a miracle right now. This fucking sucks.

God I hate it that bullshit like that allways happens in multiples. Yesterday morning on top of the rest sounds like the kind of day where I would have lost my shit really bad, like quitting my job or punching myself a black eye or something crazy like that.


On the faceshield, idk, doesn't seem ideal yes but over here it's a legal alternative. Just imagine that that teacher is just really concerned with his students that hear bad and lowkey rely on reading lips, even if he is actually just an asshole. With where the pandemic is after allmost two years, it's sad to say but we can allmost be grateful for any token gesture that might mess with the aerodynamics somewhat...I'm totally fine with people who wear scarves. And when it comes to those that wear their mask under their nose, I just consider them mouthbreathers, as in the pejorative meaning, that tends to satisfy my animosities.

Your former dojo sounds like it has too much money. Pride dictates you don't cash in without confronting your students about their absences. Kicking you out was needlessly competitive. What would the parents say if you tried to instigate that those who won't pass get kicked out of your class, just for you too look better? Actually cross that out, I'll try to not take a needless misanthropic big swing at all the users with kids but like, you got to take parents opinions with a pinch of salt, don't we all have our own parents that showed us the tragic effects of being parent on a healthy brain :P?! I guess you're avoiding this exact scenario for a reason but I can't imagine there were any kids/teens training in that dojo.

I got an assortement of old smartphones I consider to be from the era before they got hell of annoying, probably way useless to you, and between that and renting an anonymous mailbox and paying customs on some old ewaste this is probably the stupidest paragraph yet.

Guess I'm all out of unsatisfying takes, a far cry from a miracle but I tried.

The faceshield barely does anything, unfortunatedly. There's no seal, so you project the same amount of crap and it wont protect you from floating particles. All it does is prevent someone from directly sneezing on your face.

We have a worker in my place that has several comorbidities and is always wearing one.  I'm not her doctor and I am not in a room with her so I'm not going to be the one to tell ir to her, but I think she has a false sense of security from the thing :/

You did great, Vec, that's like three extra generous portions of 'shitty week' and you've got a level head about it to tell us how it went. Sorry your mom's a piece of work, you don't deserve any of that.

On the bright side, if your landlord gives you trouble about a repair or something, you could maybe voice in a complaint that 'you think you saw that a knob was out of place?'

It's no miracle, sorry, but I admire your fortitude!

I locked my keys in my car today and had to cancel on plans I'd made. That's fifty bucks and a morning I won't get to see again. I'm really useless in the morning before I've had coffee, heh.

Depending on the kind of windows and locks one can unlock with with a sufficiently long and sturdy cord or a hard wire.

Well, what's done is done now, I'll call it an investment in being careful about locking objects and/or taking more time in the morning to drink coffee.

I used to own a set of lockpicks, as a hobby. Wouldn't do me a lick of good for a car door, naturally, but I popped a few padlocks back in my day, and one cabinet for which the key was absent. Good fun.

A good practice is to make a simple copy of your key. Now days most car keys have some chip or something that will not allow you to start the car with a key that simply match the shape. But you do not need start the car, just open it.

So make a simple metal copy of the key and keep it on your wallet.

Edit: fuck it seems one of my wife's brothers has a nasty accident on another state while working (he drives a truck) and while he is okay other people might be dead.

While looking for any news I also found so many depressive things like this guy that got killed of three shots. He was gunned down selected at random by this stupid idiot because a "warlock" told him to do it as a sacrifice required for granting a wish...

Another news of this woman that hired a goon to rob her own mother of a meager amount...

Oh fuck we are really worried.

Edit2: fuck a little girl died.... a baby.... fuck.

Our prime minister Rutte (who, despite I don't like his political views, deserves some kudos for always going to work on his bicycle), has been placed under extreme protection detail.

Apparently the cocaine maffia wants to kill or kidnap him. So now he can't ride his bike to work anymore.

What has our country come to of late.... Lawyers, journalists, innocent familiy members of state witnesses being assasinated by cocaine maffia. That's just so not dutch. But sadly it seems to be becoming the new dutch way.

Not surprised after Amsterdam had an anti-tank missile fired at a journalist HQ in 2018. But what surprises me is... The PM? I would think that even organised criminals would hesitate to go after someone so big

So Gansterdam is not a lousy but funny movie about drugs but a sad reality about drugs?

It's not Mexicartels over here, it is Mocrocartels.
I wouldn't be surprised if they wanted to try and kidnap our PM to force the release of Riduan T.
