It's been tough for me to get to work as well....

U got this @Audiobook
Thank you, been off since Sunday so IDK how things have been going but we’ll see.

Also got half the Biology reading I need to get done accomplished. And waiting to hear back from a Professor about a paper to see if I am going in the right direction.

Also gotta find time to catch up on Algebra.

But I’m getting there.

All I know is no matter what, I am not staying late at work tomorrow, if we go late because the people they put in charge can’t manage they can deal with it.

If everything's a dream, don't wake me
It's been a long time since I've posted here, but I felt like I needed to vent.

I have since posting been through a complete fucking hell of a time, and I'm so done with life. Nothing gets better, everything only gets worse. I wish I could just dissapear, or never wake up again.

Well as soon as my ASM saw me he fixed my availability...so it will take effect in 3 weeks.

And we should be getting someone else for Team Lead... so hopefully that will be better, I have a person in mind for who I hope it is...

Also been trying to help a friend (who I also suspect has a learning disability) with her COVID leave since she has symptoms but she does the opposite of what I say she should do so that’s hard lol (and HR does not help with that stuff).

Hang in there Cloudie; and all Darksiders; cooped up too long causes the crazy to come out for all of us; It is a big fat struggle everyday and we all live it to the end:; Much love to you all! Remember that this too shall pass.

trying to keep my sobriety from stimulants its been two years since i quit them but lately i feel a strong urge to start using them again i just feel so tired. honestly still feel the negative side effects of using them for a very long time period even after been clean from them for a while now.

Love/hate is the stimulating gameplay always

So, I have actually gone on a leave until November. I don’t wish to say too much, but I hope that I can find the energy to catch up with what I need to catch up with.

I’m just fucking nervous about those fucking events Walmart is hosting in November...like, it’s basically going to be 3 different Black Friday’s and the reasoning is that it will be spread out so that there will be less people at each.

IDK if it will play out like that, but it’s going to be fucking hellish.

And we still can’t hire enough people.

Honestly, I just want to try and survive until we get new upper management...they run off any good managers and have made that place a living hell.

If it gets any worse Home Office will have to step in.

That sucks @Audiobook
Never really worked retail. I have worked at a grocery store once, and I remember working the days before thanksgiving & thanksgiving day, and it was pretty brutal. I can only imagine what it must be like working @ a department store like Wallyworld.
I've read some interesting articles about how the employees are 'taken care of' @ Wallmart and I am not to happy with reading it.
I guess just look @ some of the positives about it, like you are working and making $ to pay for bills and shit. not to mention the new ps5 is coming out and i am sure you are wanting to get one lol.
I'm starting to notice more and more homeless people around here. Usually give out sack lunches to the lot of them on saturdays and the tent citys that we have been going to are growing. I've met all kinds of people that are homeless, and it's sad really, but it makes me look at my own life, and shows what I can go back to.

Since we are talking about jobs, I start my new job in the morning. Was told that my shirt cannot have any wrinkles, and I have the slightest idea on how to use an iron. Was never really shown that when growing up I guess.
Have been looking into ways to avoid having to iron, and I read where you can like toss a damp towel in with a shirt and put it on for a couple of minutes. So I might try that here in a little bit to try and be somewhat prepared for the job.
Looking forward to it. All this weekend I have been reseting my internal clock just so I can have a normal sleep, and wake up @6am.
Wish me luck!

I am happy to have a job right now, don’t get me wrong. I know being homeless is worse.

Like, I honestly am just trying to survive at this point. With how they keep raising the cap on how many Online Grocery Pickup orders we can sustain, IDK if it will get better.

Especially since the holidays are coming up.

Like I know this could be worse, and that it will get better, but yea. IDK.

This year almost did me in. Back in july i was very close to putting a 12 gauge shell through the side of my head. Keep fighting on struggling up and down still here because of LSD. Got big plans for next year going to go full on sober and work my ass off to get good grades in post grad chemistry. Renewed my deep faith in a higher power. For the next two months i will still party and take some drugs but once this year is done thats it. Even psychedelics i need to take a extended break

had a great first day of work. it was nothing new really, just doing like administrative duties rather then peer to peer specialist duties. more answering the phone, directing calls, fax's and emails such, and didn't have to call the law once today! which was pretty fucking amazing! i'm so used to calling 911 atleast once a day, because usually there is some drunk asshole that cant seem to tone it down and refuses to leave or worse one might bloop out on the workers. so yeah was really good!

Like I know this could be worse, and that it will get better, but yea. IDK.
i dont see any reason them like letting you go or something before the holidays. more so they would hold onto you more than anything.

I know, like I don’t think they’ll fire me or anything like that.

But they do try and take advantage of me and will throw way too much on me if I let them....it’s complicated

I'm sorry TDS I've failed you; I wish I could be positive today but all I have to share is psychotic ramblings and my grating personality

I'm just depressed again + don't know what to do anymore

hell yeah we all have terrible times. man almost 5 years ago i was sleeping on the outside of a health plaza type of building homeless af scrolling bluelight on my flip phone. i was drinking warm steel reserves. wondering how i am going to get another beer, and i would have done anything for $ to get alcohol, or just steal the booze. then turned into mouthwash, and talk about being shitty.
i would have killed myself, or had got myself killed if i hadn't decided to seek help.
there are some good days that fallow after the dark ones.
