Where do they find some of these people on ads?! They’re awful. I def could do better. Ugh.


I'm feeling a lot of anger towards my manager (now he's acting normal but there were moments where he was condescending/dismissive/mocked my and others work/arrogant/said stuff was "wrong" constantly/belittling the difficulty of tasks etc. in the past project).
Maybe it is "standard chewing out" but it bothered me a lot. So much that I find myself still getting all fired up inside thinking about it...

I think this counts as a confession. I still pay for cable tv, technically, ATT UVerse. I really want to cut the cord, but haven't figured out how to do it yet and what subscriptions I should get instead. Is there a website for this to help me pick? Side note: they always show a photo of someone cutting a cable that is already disconnected, that drives me crazy.


If I get to choose again, I’d like to live in Japan. Their culture amaze me.
