I’ve had this really heavy sadness that makes it hard to even make my limbs obey me or talk hanging over me for nearly three days now. It’s nothing new, but it’s very persistent right now.
I almost decided to quit my job today because my boss was in a bad mood about how few students we had this weekend (C’MON THEY’RE ON HOLIDAY OBVI, SOME OF OUR STAFF HAVE EVEN LEFT ALREADY) and was telling me how UNACCEPTABLE it is and asked me about how our floor’s doing. I undersell things a lot so I told her it was going pretty well and she went WELL IT NEEDS TO BE FANTASTIC. And. I was super, super sure she was blaming low attendance (ALL OVER THE SCHOOL! NOT JUST MY CLASS!!) on ME. ME, PERSONALLY.
…theeeeen I talked to a few of my coworkers and they’d all got the same treatment. I figured out that that was probably the case when I was told to avoid her if I could about twenty minutes after she chewed me out over having a small class on the second-to-last week of term. She bit off at least two other teachers’ heads that I know of, and those were just the two people I was talking with while I did my end-of-day reports.
Oh, and I did extra-special individual-child-specific reports to appease her. Good day!
On the one hand I’m like “female villain displaying lesbian tendencies wow what is this 1950s pulp fiction?” but on the other hand I’m like female villain displaying lesbian tendencies.
Wow, crack_van is closing. End of an era.
This news and that tag are both making me feel like I’ve been punched in the griefbone.
Those of us who still know what that means. I salute you all, you geezers. Let’s throw some kids off our lawns in somber celebration. We shall see others rise and fall, but none that were simultaneously the best and worst as LJ.
If those terrible photos of Lady Gaga with ugly-ass painted-on anime eyes cross my dash one more time I will scream for years and never stop until my larynx submits its resignation notice. OH YES I AM IN JAPAN I MUST BE THE ANIME. Up there next to Kyary and Arashi and Takamina who all look cute as fuck like that isn’t a prosecutable offense.
Fuck off forever, please.
