No shit, Tempus Fugit!

shit - arturo : charliemc
Still feeling under the weather, so to speak, both physically and psychologically. But I'm sure I'll be on the mend soon.

So last night I quit my Batman drabble community, sick of the constant moderation. Then today I realized I overreacted due to the weird events in RL, and re-upped. I just spent about 90 minutes writing three more drabbles and then posted them in one entry, as they've now requested. My 'team' might have a chance to win this week . . . or not. Probably not.

I think if there's one more moderation post or comment to me in the next few days, that will be it. I just don't need any more rules or regulations or official advice.

Today I spent about 15 minutes covering the front desk, until the phone guy managed to get our voicemail system operating again. If they really want to pay me $45 an hour to answer phones, I guess I'll do it.


In the meantime, another opportunity has presented itself, and I'm going to have to at least investigate it. Whether it's exactly what I want or not, it would mean more security and probably a lot fewer hours in the long run. We'll see.

I think you're entitled to feel out of it, due to RL stuff. But I agree that you don't need to put up with any undue crap community-wise. We can always start up our own places to play, after all! (heh)

I don't blame you for wanting to check out the job opportunity, either. It could even mean more $$$ -- and less stress in many ways (like wondering if the festival might just go under sometime soon). Imagine having more free time! I can't. I just consider the list of stuff we need to do and I feel like my head will pop (to borrow one of your fave sayings).

Yeah, a stupid waste of your time, no doubt. But you've always been a team player when it comes to stuff like that. You didn't see me learning how to do the phones so I could sit up there. My bad. But whatev.

Anyway, I hope you feel better soon. You've been at work constantly while feeling ill -- and did a great job on Saturday, illness and issues aside. I totally salute you!

I love that icon. That's all I can say.

I don't know how you feel about me commenting in your journal, but I sometimes overreact to things when I'm stressed or down. I even deleted my journal not long ago. At least I brought it back before the time was up. That kind of thing must happen often and that's why they give you all that extra time to change your mind.

Hi, Kyra! Feel free to comment away. Why not if the post is public?

I rarely react quickly to things. I've kinda taught myself not to. But the boyfriend dumping me two hours before the auction really bugged. And then when he sent money in the mail, like that was going to make up for it, that infuriated me. At first I wasn't even going to comment on it, but then I had to rant in my journal. I figured, what the heck. Let it fly! Maybe later I'll make those posts private, but right now I don't care who reads them.

This particular community I wrote about is borderline bugging me. There are just so many rules and regulations, it seems ridiculous. I'm sure it will all tone down, but by then I won't be into the fandom anymore, knowing me. Still, I'm giving it some time to find out.

I've never deleted my journal. Since I bought a permanent one, I doubt I would. But I've certainly ignored it for long periods of time, like earlier this year. And I suppose if things got really weird, I might make it private. I hardly ever even post friends-only, though, so how likely is that?

I can tell you one thing, that was really selfish, low-life behavior coming from your ex boyfriend. What a thing to do to someone. It had to hurt.

It's been so long since I had a boyfriend it's unreal, but I can clearly remember the pain they can inflict.

Well, it's he's loss. He may try to get back with you later, especially if you find someone else. Men are so strange like that. It's like some kind of predator instinct.

I don't know what to tell you on the situation, but I know you've been through hard and painful times before, you can make it. And you're such a pretty woman with ability and social standing, in that sense you have a lot to key in on for strength.
