Best Week Ever?

2

This week has been incredible. I got a new job (yes, another... the nannying thing didn't work out as I'd hoped.) But this new new job pays better than either of the others, is Monday through Friday, and is at the most incredible childcare facility I've ever seen. The kids get swimming lessons starting when they're TINY (about 18 months old...

Glad you got a new job. That last one sounded hard core even if you like kids. Stand up sounds like a blast, that was always a dream of the wife's.  glad things are going well.

I am job hunting.

I like my current primary job, but I really miss being around the little ones. This by no means is to suggest that I want my OWN little ones any time soon, but I seriously miss toddlers.

Studying in the social sciences is difficult for an introvert. I hate feeling like I'm bothering people when I need to do assignments...

How To Be Happy

Are you almost disgusted with life, little man?
I'll tell you a wonderful trick.
That will bring you contentment if anything can,
Do something for somebody, quick!

Are you awfully tired with play, little girl?
Wearied, discouraged, and sick-
I'll tell you the loveliest game in the world
Do something for somebody, quick!

Though it rains, like the rain...

Hahh...! I'm glad that things are looking good for you in that department. What a fun lyrical submission.

bakuto:

Thank you. Probably one of the better things said about my writings.

Ah, Zimmerman... honestly, I think he should have just stayed in the car. A lesson I learned myself recently.

A "Croque-Monsieur?" Damn, those French are always one step ahead of me. Here I thought it was something I came up with.

I'm not so sure that I'm staying anymore, though it was considerably reassuring to know that I will be missed. Thank you.

My new kitty is still sick. He is getting better, but he has thrush in his ears and a really hard to treat upper respiratory infection.

However, both kitties are absolutely wonderful. They're getting along, and Gumdrop (sick kitty) was an angel with the vet. She commented on how calm and good-natured he is, saying that normally when she does as much to a...

I'm PineappleFroot, I'm 23, and today was the first time I've shown up at work with a hickey.

I don't think I'll ever live it down.

Some updates:

I lost my full-time job that I adored because of a coworker who I hate. She got fired too, but that's of little consolation.

I lost my cat, who died suddenly- one day she was eating and drinking and playing, the next morning she was dead on my dining room floor.

I am trying dating again. That's kind of mediocre. I...

Lies.

<3 You are the best and I really appreciate how much you've been around this past week and a half for me despite what you are going through, and I hope you know you can vent and stress and cry with me too and it won't detract from what I'm feeling or need or whatever.

I find keeping them all the same color helps camouflage the encroaching crazy-cat-person-ness

Guess we should get some flux capacitors

Well, I am totally single now.

He is damaged from a previous relationship.

In most ways, I'd really prefer hearing that he thought we are fundamentally incompatible. That would be more concrete and easier to accept.

As it is, I feel like it's not over, even though it is, and will likely be torturing myself with "what if"s until he starts dating...
