Time is going by too fast. I'm about to turn 20 and have fuck all to show for it, Summer decided to fly by, and I have no idea what my next move in life is.
I really don't want to be stuck at this supermarket janitorial job until I die.
I guess not everyone gets to have fun, though. Somebody's life has to be a boring shithole.
And transes aren't allowed to be happy anyway

Defining yourself by what you do for money is your first mistake.
I mean yeah, but it takes up most of my time and pretty much dictates how I live, so it really defines my life at the moment.
The American Dream, baby.

I know folks in janitorial jobs who have great work/life balance and are extremely happy with their careers. What is it about your current gig that's preventing you from having that?

It's for Whole Foods, who is owned by the #1 company in Soul Crushing. Customers there also treat you like shit. I feel like I'm about to snap about every god damn minute.

End of the fucking line again.

I was spending so much time focusing on climbing out of the hole I live in that I didn’t notice the ground crumbling under my FUCKING FEET.

No income. No rent means no housing. No good money and SNAP actively fucking me over means I will not have food anymore either real soon. I am so fucking tired of struggling for nothing, of fighting so fucking hard and making progress and having EVERYTHING TAKEN FROM ME yet the fuck again. I’m 33 and i have NOTHING

There's over 100 of us in this meat-suit. You'd think it runs like a ship, but it's more like a hundred and ten angry ghosts having an old-school QuakeWorld tournament, three people desperately trying to make sure the gamers don't go hungry or soil themselves, and the Facilities manager weeping in the corner as the garbage piles high.

I used to be creative. I used to be bright. I used to have a FUTURE.
Is this what getting older feels like?
Maybe it's the medication, I've felt off since I've taken it. Or maybe that's just a shitty reason I'm using to cope with the fact that my brain is losing value, slowing down, going numb.
Maybe I'm just depressed because the world sucks, idk.
My mind is either uselessly racing or slow and numb.
I was supposed to get a psych, but they're expensive as hell and I was denied telehealth shit, so that's shit. Great.

Hey y'all,

Still here.  Still a cook.  Still a drummer. Still married. Still queer.  Still not talking or writing very much.

Still happy.

Still happy.

Still here.  Still doing questionable shit for bad people.  Still married.  Still writing, under a different name, at a different place (solely due to lack of anyone being here).  Still full of rage.

Still happy, here at the end of all things.

Sorry, there is no future left.  My generation and the one before mine used it all up.  Sorry about that.

It's the middle of September, and Saskatchewan is still getting air quality warnings because of smoke from wildfires.

After this summer, I'm surprised there's anything left to burn.

It has been at least 4 weeks since the bout with covid started.

Housemate and I are still fucked by it. Whenever we think we're turning the corner a few days later it goes right back to the start.

I have tried to get an appointment with the doctor countless times, it is impossible. Call in the morning, get told there's too many people calling to even get put in a queue, get disconnected. Call in the afternoon, get told you can't have an appointment because you need to call in the morning.

And calling in the morning is so hard when all I want to do is sleep.

So as far as I can tell, I just don't get healthcare any more.

Love to live on Plague Island.

Turns out making all the doctors and nurses flee to Canada and Australia and then making our immigration system so impossibly frustrating and difficult that no-one wants to come here was not a winning strategy. Who knew?

Try and keep well the best you can, though. I'm sure you've heard it before and know what to do, but fluids and rest, rest and fluids. 4 weeks is quite the ass-kicking, so hopefully it passes soon.

Send more, please.  We still have a shortage.

Tell them Saskatchewan really isn't as bad as the right-wing regressive provincial government and technically uninhabitable climate might make it seem.

Honestly sounds like the UK except it is as bad as it seems, and possibly even worse than that.

So apparently they're "vaccinating the meat supply", now.

This, of course, means the Purebloods will have to choose between either becoming vegan, or start eating each other.

Formerly something else...
