    In good news, my city is adopting the Philadelphia model for investigating sexual assault cases, where an independent advocacy panel reviews cases, even ones the police dismissed

    The police force rejected the idea last year but this year they reconsidered

    Being unemployed for 5 months was pretty bad.

    I've gotten pretty used to being unemployed at this point though

    I am talking to another recruiter this afternoon, but he flaked on me for a few days when he asked me to give him a time to talk initially, so I'm not expecting much

    Mondo released some posters today and the one I wanted sold out immediately. Why do I even try with them.

    The only up side to my most recent unemployment, besides it ending a few months ago, was that i spent a bulk of my day in the gym (so i wouldn't spend all my time thinking about how fucked i am) so I got a bunch of gains there ands got myself out of pre diabetes land.

    Honestly, if you're not busy today I would definitely pay you for shipping etc. That would be amazing!

    I have a frustration to vent!

    Yesterday I was supposed to receive my disability support. I didn't, which struck me as odd, so I made the necessary phone calls, cleared up the existing misunderstanding, and was assured that the money would be in my bank account today.

    It is now today, and there is no money in my bank account. Which is less funny now because rent is due today, and unlike the receipt of my disability support, the day on which rent is due isn't negotiable.

    So I made the round of phone calls again. Everyone claims they did what they were supposed to do.

    Technically, very technically, my bank has until COB for the money to be in my account. So I have to just sort of fret for the next 5 hours, which is a lovely way to spend my time!

    *takes deep breaths, only very gently overturns a table*

    I will not let my anger control me, but the flipped table is a symbol of my frustration.

    I went 6 months unemployed after a round of layoffs. How the hell do you plan contingency job when your employer tells you job secure for 3 years then lays off half the workers 6 months later?

    Companies are shit at being real with workers because that would 100% make it to the stock analysis. Better to pretend to shareholders the layoffs were overhead reduction...

    i have a dentist appt and a date, so probably not today. but this weekend i could go look. when they put things on their website, i think that means they're not keeping any in their studio though if you wanted that particular thing.

    call them and ask, if they do have what you want, i could try to make my date go down there with me for an adventure :D

    The longest I was unemployed was when I was writing up my PhD. It's hard to define how long it was. 18 months in total but about 6 months after handing in my thesis.

    I'm suddenly remembering a story from a GM, of a guy, shows up for his first session ever, and they set him up with a cleric, explain the rules, and he just takes off and is acting like the worst chaotic evil character ever (cleric was of a NG god), burning orphans and like after 30 minutes, the GM stops and is like "Okay, we gotta talk about this, you realize that you're--" "So I win , right?" "What?" "You don't know what to do next, so like, you lost, right?"

    Haha no worries, they mentioned the online release was because the show has already been out for a bit so like you said they probably don't have any in the gallery now. I will probably hit you up next time something is announced though.
