The worst thing (which is also the most necessary thing) about a new job is learning, and in turn, making mistakes.
I KNOW it’s my manager’s job to correct me, and help me improve. I KNOW she has to make sure everything goes smoothly. I KNOW I obviously need help when I make a mistake, no matter how small. I know all of that. It all makes sense.
But there’s a little part of me that just doesn’t quite get it. It chips away at you after a while, being constantly told you’ve done something wrong, or at least not quite right.
I really wish I wasn’t so obsessive and anal when it comes to little details.
I’ve had this corkboard on my wall for a few years, and I love being able to see photos and ticket stubs and the like, but it’s simply too stressful for me to maintain.
It’s like, “what should go up there and what shouldn’t?” and “nothing can be covered up at all, it all has to be visible” yet also “NO BLANK SPACES” and then “but no i don’t want pin holes ruining my stuff”
THIS SHOULDN’T BE STRESSFUL. JUST PIN SOME SHIT ON A CORK BOARD AND BE DONE, god damn.
you guys are always like “i want equality!” except gay people are better than straight people and women are better than men and poc are better than white people and trans people are better than cis people
if you claim you want equality, but put someone down because they’re privileged, that doesn’t make you an advocate for equality, it makes you an asshole
I can’t even express how excited I was by the release of ‘Heavenly Father’ the other week. I’ve been listening to it on repeat basically 24/7.
I know it’s hard to say I’ve ‘missed’ Justin Vernon’s voice, as I can just listen to any of his old songs, but it felt like such a… spiritual experience, listening to him singing something I hadn’t heard yet. It brought me back to that weird feeling of elation and pain I felt the first time I ever heard him sing.
But man, I wish they’d just bring a whole new album out already. One song can only sustain me for so long.
