No, not really it isn’t funny but I didn’t know what else to title my post. But I’m trying really, really hard to stay as positive as I possibly can and here’s why….
I know I’m Blessed In Spite of My Circumstances
Because in spite of my current situation with losing my great paying job, I still have been able to pay my mortgage, have food in the fridge, put gas in my car (although I don’t know for how long) and I have a job (even though I don’t like it), I still am blessed that I’m not living out of my car in a WalMart parking lot. But, having a great attitude is trying for me right now, I’m finding myself talking to to my reflection in the mirror reassuring myself that things will get better. But yet, almost nine months into my current situation I’m still in the same place. It’s like this, imagine your swimming and your making headway and then the current changes and no matter how much you swim your still in the same spot. And to be honest I’m tired of swimming against the tide here, but through all the bad there is some good and I have to remind myself that the good out-weights the bad.
Why ZipRecruiter and Indeed, WHY???
I have used several of these hiring portals to put in what seems like thousands upon thousands of applications. I have created my profile very carefully to target jobs of a manager or director position and still what do I get?? I get targeted for jobs of forklift operators and custodial positions!! I’m like how in the FUCK does my profile match me with forklift operators, warehouse supervisors and custodial jobs???!!!! Then I go on and look at some of the postings and I see that director or manager positions in the healthcare area are tagged as “Not A Good Match.” Which I totally am because thats WHAT I WAS DOING BEFORE I LOST MY FUCKING JOB!!!! Okay….breathe, breathe……
My Neighbor Is Making Me Look Bad
My dear, dear, sweet neighbor whose name is Jessy James, yes that’s his real name. Is a retired Navy veteran who spends hour upon hour caring for his very green and very lush lawn. Monsoon season came early this year and it’s been raining like a motherfucker for the last three weeks. So naturally his lawn is beautiful and mine? Not so much, the only thing the rain has made grow on my side of the fence are weeds, fucking weeds, goats head thorn weeds, creeping Charlie weeds! Yes I have green patches of grass here and there but they are just patches at this point. But mostly annoying as fuck weeds.
My Son’s Pool
My son bought an above ground pool for his house because since I can remember that’s been one of his goals is to have a pool to cool off in the summer. Its not a big pool, it’s only 14ft long and about 5ft high but just big enough for us to be able to take a dip and swim around for a while. So since he’s put up his pool, I’ve spent almost every weekend over at his house.
I See Stupid People Everywhere……But Mostly Online
Since the January 6th hearings began to investigate if that orange idiot had any part of what happened (because logical and sensible people know he did) his followers are all trying to cast some serious shade on the people coming forth and testifying. I for one can think for myself and I believe that the petulant child Donald Trump is, had every intention on not only persuading those idiots on Jan 6th, but to actually join in on that organized chaos he created. His “people/followers/believers” (can anyone say Jonestown?) think that any type of democracy is pure sabotage and that Trump is their god and deserves to be president. I get targeted by people who can’t hold a logical and educated conversation about this issue because 1) their temper gets the best of them 2) they have no actual facts to argue 3) they act just like their stupid leader 4) they get their information from other idiots online who spread misinformation about what really happened. They are all immature, uneducated and ignorant assholes who follow blindly and are ready and willing to swallow gallons upon gallons of the toxic Kool Aid that Trump and his team have prepared. Democracy is what is keeping Trump and his followers from taking this country to hell in a hand basket. No, our current president isn’t doing the greatest job, but at least he’s not out there cultivating hate among the people who can’t think for themselves that don’t understand what the spreading of hate can do to our country. I found to my dismay that my boss/supervisor is a Trump supporter and every chance he gets he bashes our current president. Finally I had to interject and tell him politely that work isn’t a place for him to spew his political ideals because not all of us share his views. He also thinks that climate change is a hoax…….oh God please give me patience because not only do I hate my job but now I’ve lost any respect for my boss and that’s a sad, sad thing for him.
Until next time……this is the Huntress, saying…”Don’t be a Moth Around a Dim Yellow Bulb, Be a Moth to a Flame, Make it worth the Burn!”
