I have to laugh

I have to laugh. For years I have thought my boss was the biggest douchebag on the planet. I hated him and despised him, but occassionaly I second guessed myself. I'd wonder 'Is he really the problem or is it me?' 'Are his requests and behavioour reasonable, or am I just being a snowflake?' 'Am I a good employee, or are his ridiculous complaints and demands not so ridiculouse afterall?'.

I now have no doubt, we have a new employee, and they are already making the same complaints about him and noting the same faults in him that I have. The new worker already despises him and we have bonded over our mutual contempt for the man.

Generally I don't care what other people think, but I will admit that once in a while it feels good to recieve validation!

I have been interested in learning how to pick locks for a while now, so I bought some picks and a transparent practice lock. Strictly for fun of course, I am not a thief, so I would not be practicing on locks that are not mine.

After successfully picking the practice lock earlier in the week, I practiced on a Masterlock Excell I had lying around, first night I couldn’t budge it, but the second night I was able to rake it open. Since then I have re-picked it multiple times with a hook pin and with a rake. I have been far more consistent and successful with the rake.

Masterlock are considered bottom tier, low quality easy for lockpicking enthusiasts to open. So now i need to buy something better. Lockpicking really takes my mind off the stress and anxiety caused by my job.

I recommend it as a hobby to anyone.

Never go above and beyond

I did my boss a favor tonight, did a little bit of work from home, after hours unpaid. 

Instead of being grateful he bitched at me for not doing more.

It's a key reminder of a lesson that we all know, but sometimes seem not to remember; never do more than the bare minimum, the boss will not be grateful, but will come to expect it.

If you do to well at your job, they will 'reward' you by giving you more tasks and more responsibilities but without increasing your pay.

Never make the mistake of thinking your job cares about you.

Holiday nearly over
Current mood:  awake

I have to go back to work next week.

Not looking forward to it, but what can you do?

I have been on holiday for the last two weeks, I have not gone anywhere, just holed myself up at home and avoided interacting with as many people as possible. Just the way I like it!

I have watched a lot of movies online, today I watched Patchwork.

I’ve seen it before but decided to watch it again.

It is a really awesome character driven film, the dynamic between the three main characters who end up sharing the one Frankenstein monster-esque body and their getting to know one another and deal with their predicament was really fun and interesting to watch, also the actor who played Fred Weasley as the friend, Garrett, who was trying to help them, turned in a pretty awesome performance.

I liked Ellie, Jennifer and Garrett and the ending left me wanting to know what the next adventure will be for these characters.

I've got to say, I am truly at my happiness when I am at home watching movies online and am not interacting with other human beings. 

If only I could get paid to do this, how the hell do you become a film critic anyway?

How do others cope with the pressures of life?
Current mood:  anxious

The older I get, it seems the more I regress.

Instead of getting better at 'adulting' and coping with the pressures and frustrations of day to day life, I'm getting worse.
It gets harder and harder to control my temper and act 'professionally' at work when dealing with f***wits, morons and asswipes.
Small trivial things that I would have been capable of dealing with 10 years ago now send me onto the verge of a meltdown.
I don't get it.
I need to fix myself and take control of my life but I don't know how to begin.
I have thought about a career change, but that would mean more study, which is very expensive where I am.
This is a huge gamble.
Who knows if the career change would even help of if I would be worse off than before?
I keep burying myself in escapism.
Watching movies, reading books, listening to music.
These are the only things that make me happy, and nobody is going to pay me to do that.
How does one figure out their life?

Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and grief
Current mood:  blank

Just watching old episodes of the 1980's Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series. These were so much better and more faithful to to the spirit of the books than the disappointing 2005 movie. What is with these Hollywood execs, or whoever it is that make the decisions, that causes them to utterly butcher the source material?

How can anybody actually make a bad adaption of HHGTG? It is incomprehensible to me that anybody entrusted to make an adaption of the brilliant, witty, hilarious and utterly captivating books of Douglas Adams could make a movie that is flat, boring and unenjoyable.
It doesn't matter, I suppose. These questions I am positing and topics i am discussing are inconsequential to anybodies life and completely vapid. 
The truth is I started off the year 2019 with tragedy, I lost someone close to me and in order to distract myself and cope with the grief, I am burying myself in movies, TV shows, books, etc. and trying to lose myself in these and discuss the minutia of these. If this is what it takes to stop me breaking down in tears and becoming non functional from grief of my dead loved one, so be it.
I have always been fascinated by death, but that doesn't mean that I actually want anybody I am close with to die. I believe it is most likely that there is no afterlife, and that when we die, our personality and consciousness is extinguished, gone forever. So of course I will be sad and miserable to think that someone I loved dearly is now gone forever, no matter how long I live, I will never be able to see them again, speak to them, touch them, and I will not be able to do so after death either.
Although I don't believe in an afterlife, a small part of me holds out hope for some kind of positive afterlife, where I can see my loved ones again, and all of us existing happily together eternally, I cannot allow myself to think about this.
The reason I cannot allow myself to think of this is because if I do, I cant stop thinking of all the reasons it is logically or scientifically unlikely, (putting it mildly).

Why do people with kids only ever hangout with other people who have kids
Current mood:  awake

I'm not talking about when going to a childcentric activity, (obviously )  I'm talking even when their kids are at school, or at camp, or it's just the adults getting together.
It seems once they become a parent, their single or childfree friends simply no longer exist to them.
I have seen this happen a few times now, does anyone else on here have friends that stopped hanging out with you and any other non-parent friend after they became a parent?
Do you still talk to them at all?
