I have never seen that movie tbh, I was just half remembering a quote from somewhere else where the guy yelled something else loudly, and my brain supplied Janet when it couldn't think of the right word, I'm not even sure it WAS a word

Well, we could put two and two together and write a book: "The Shit that Hans and Max Did: You Won't Believe This Shit."

It kinda sounds like it should have been 'Lena' or 'Mother', as berated by Archer.

Well, that presentation isn't something I'm recording, it's something I'm giving in front of a group on the interview day, there's a panel involved along with all of the other interviewees, which also means I'll be sitting through a bunch of other interviewees' presentations, following the 1-2 hours of the company's presentations on whatever wanksy corporate bullshit drives modern America.

I have nooo fucking technical experience in the IT security realm because my last IT security job was bullshit that didn't teach me much of anything (and 3-4 years' experience ain't worth shit anyways), I have no fucking technical IT experience from college because that was a joke of an education, and I haven't been diligent enough to just 'learn all the things' or be a passionate self-starting professional, and ultimately, the last one is the one I don't have an excuse for and so the whole burden of the problem falls on me for just 'not being an expert' before getting hired on anywhere.

Ugh. I'm just angry, angry at how the rules keep changing, how I seem to have no negotiation power, angry at how limited my options seem to be out this way. Angry at how little I know and how poorly I get myself to study independently. Angry that I feel intimidated by this interview bullshit (doing unpaid work for the chance to do more work?), angry that I'm not sure that I'm in the right for feeling indignant about this, angry that I'm gonna have to blow away all of my savings without help if I want to go and actually get educated on anything somewhere, and, of course, angry that I'm not even sure that this is the field I want to be in, 'cuz if I can't find it in myself to teach myself everything there is to know about the field, how do I know it's the field I want to be in anyways?

And anger is stupid and I don't like having it. I'm not easily driven to anger. Exerting it is stupid and destructive, letting it simmer is stupid and self-destructive, and letting it go doesn't address the source of it, which is stupid and re-productive. It's just this useless thing to lug around until things get better.

I told my sister I was hashing up an escape contingency to New Zealand again if work falls flat here, but she keenly reminded me that I'd be ruining the holidays if I made that decision around then, and pointed out that with the holidays rolling in, there's like to be a general hiring freeze going around anyways. Happy as I am to have her clear-headed analysis, it doesn't do much to alleviate this feeling that I'm trapped or waiting for scraps from on high to come down and show me corporate mercy, though I know I should feel lucky that I'm even in the sphere of pursuing this career and that I'm still being entertained for a couple of roles, interview ghosts and homework projects and all.

Ugh. Whingeing over.

Your sister sounds wise I'm afraid to say. It's always annoying when one's siblings sound wise.

Power was out at work today when I got there. A power line or something went down, and that also caused a problem with our circuit breakers. Didn't get power back until 11:15. In the meantime, the manager had us picking trash up throughout the parking lot and surrounding woodsey area. The only protective gear we were given wer thin, plastic examination gloves, to dig for trash in elbow-deep underbrush with thorns.

Does your contract support such work? Or is it one of those vague "whatever else that may be reasonably expected" contracts?

I needed to do disability stuff on a government website. Turns out, the website that I need is only active during certain time ranges.

Leave it to the United States government to build a website that closes for the night.

Don't be fooled, it's totally intended to restrict the number of applicants, while still giving lip-service to "It's totally available!"

Kinda like the "A file cabinet in a disused lavatory of the sub sub basement behind a sign that says "Beware of the leopard!"" in hitch-hiker's guide to the galaxy.
"The plans WERE on display!"

Or some of the cancer treatment policies that you can see around the world... in a certain place, daratumumab is only reimbursed if used in monotherapy... and in monotherapy it's all but guaranteed that you'll progress after a couple of cycles.

I didn't know that you could have sore ankles. And they are incredibly inconvenient.

Ankles are one of the bits that are hard to soothe, impossible to avoid using, and subject to unsuitable amounts of pressure and stress.  Better break out the bonesaw while you're still sane enough to do what has to be done.

I am currently wiki walking space sites about black holes.  Specifically their emissions.  its not really all new, but now I have an itch, and unless I suddenly become a astrophysicist I wont get it elsewhere?

Most of us have an itch for emissions, it's a natural part of growing up!

It kind of gives me a bulge to think about how beautiful it is.
I mean, its all relativistic, isn't it?
You have your blue shifts, and your days when you feel red, but ultimately you're just a quirk.  Many quirks that make up a personality.
There are times when life is good, and you accrete with the help of your SO,
But then they blow up and leave you alone.
With a vacuum in your heart.
Just know that that space will one day be filled by a higher purpose; a singularity of form: once your soul is crushed like an errant electron.

And what kind of pisses me off the most though, is how I cannot see the vast majority of the night sky because I live in a convenient place where we have so much light we shine brighter than the stars above.
