Been having a bit of an emotional crisis the last day or so...  One second I feel like I'm doing alright, the next I just want to cry and huddle up under my comforter.

Tonight I stepped on a sliver of glass at least a quarter of an inch long.  I bled like a stuck pig.  Not fun.

FianceƩ having an existential crisis because of built up pressure. Things explode my way, i have to respond in a calm, sensible, gentlemanly fashion. I have to become a Zen Master, but...

It's fucking tough!!!!

If it makes you feel any better, Zen is not easily defined and therefore is not merely the ability to retain calm under pressure.

So it's hard for anyone. Here's a hug though.

What is "calm" ?


If calm is the Way, what else is the sound of one hand clapping ?

*hugs to everyone*  Thanks you guys.  ^^  It's just been...  Well, interesting is the most accurate way to say it, but that's so cliche I kinda feel bad for using it.

New rant:

Firefox, how about letting me move the damn refresh/kill loading button again?  I had my little nest of buttons on the top left and now that button is on the other side of the URL box.  And it's smaller too.

I remain extremely frustrated with my current lack of success in my job. I'm seriously pondering switching carreers, but honestly, I wouldn't know where to begin or what to do...

What do you do for a living?  And, is lack of success external, meaning pay or promotion or something?  Or, is it more along the lines of fulfillment?

I work telemarketing at a real estate agency. Basically, I call people and try to get them to buy condos.

It's something that's never sat quite right with me, as I loathe telemarketing. But it was the only job I could get that offered a prospect of enough profit to sustain me. I could stand the idea as long as I got clients and I got paid, but I've recently switched companies as well as sales focus, and I haven't been able to get a prospective client for nearly a month now.

This comes in the wake of a psych eval that claims I am too damn smart to be doing what I do, but I can't think of an alternative. I want a job where I can make my own hours and I get paid for how much I produce, not how many office hours I've logged.
