idea: get rid of fathers day, replace it with Lakeisha Richmond day
i’m a weird combination of stressed out and depressed lately it’s like i finally have a job that i love but so much else is just, in a shambles? and i wish i could rearrange time and make the good things happen at once, it’s heartbreaking to me what i missed out on, being a mess other times. i’m slightly scared that i’m incapable of succeeding at more than one thing at a time, and thus no matter what i do my life will always be missing like three things and then i’ll get depressed and thus fail at everything???
i do!! with a cat sitting company. it’s awesome & i’m really lucky & this is the first job i’ve ever had that i actually LIKE which is amazing considering how long i spent looking for a job & finding nothing.
i think it’s because taking care of cats is the only marketable skill i have where i really am better at it than most other people, and in this job market of ‘have experience, or go starve for all we care’ that’s kind of anyone’s only hope. but, i digress
