I'm so burned out at work. Each night I have nightmares about scheduling depositions, dealing with idiotic court clerks, missing a deadline, and the frantic pace of the job while working for the most annoying lawyer in the universe. Then each day I go in to deal with the realities of my nightmares. I need a break, but can't afford one.

My boss fired a client once for being such a sexist dick to me. It was pretty rad.

I just applied for a job that I think I'm slightly underqualified for. But hey, I can dream, right?

I got the shit kicked out of me when I was maybe 22 years old, by a 6'4" 220lb Vietnam Vet with Huntington's Chorea. I was maybe 110lbs soaking wet. I was working as an aide. He slammed my head against the table and threw me on the ground, where I slid and hit the opposite wall of the room. Hard enough to bruise my hip. And I didn't get the rest of the day off. They offered me an extra smoke break. Fuckers.

I used to have a neighbor who did medical transcription from home. She was a really cool lady. She moves all over the country, never staying in a place for more than a year or two. She basically shuns material things, and when she moves, she gives away all her dishes and furniture, and gets new stuff from thrift stores when she gets to her new place. She's just a little hippie nomad. As long as she has a PC and internet, she has reliable income. Makes me sort of jealous, lol.

I have a male colleague who is a mansplainer. Another male colleague has told me that he is straight up sexist. He told me today that this guy says I "don't do anything," and my friend explained to him allll of the things I do without tooting my own horn. He begrudgingly said that, given this information- from a man!- he has changed his opinion and now he respects me. Glad my friend stuck up for me but annoyed that he talks about me this way behind my back without having the faintest idea of the contributions I make and how hard I work.

I also saw his mother threaten him to spank him if he hit me, and the principal said that when she took him down the hall to talk to him she was yelling and yanking on his arm. I know this isn't the only reason that he hits, but it is probably one reason. The principal thinks he might be getting abused at home, and I agree that he might be.

Today was better with my student. He touched the scratches on my hand and said,"Sad?" I said, "Yes, sad." He said, "I sorry." <3

my coworker is pregnant and goes on maternity leave next month. she's basically checked out already. pre-pregnancy she was one of our best workers. now she comes in at least 45-60 min late every day and leaves early. while she's there she takes frequent breaks and a 2-3 hour lunch. she doesn't get much work done so everyone else is left to pick up the slack. and of course i'll look like an asshole if i complain because she's pregnant and therefore everyone turns a blind eye and is super forgiving. i can't wait til she leaves. it's as if she's not here anyway.

I'm going to a job fair in a couple weeks and I'm nervous! I really want to impress the people hiring and I will of course be very dressed up, but any other tips? I will be bringing copies of my resume to hand out--what sorts of things should I put on there? I am so nervous and excited all at the same time.
