About Me

I was WaitWut several years back. When the 'blackout' happened, I sort of drifted away. Now, I'm back at DU.

Job search advice...

I've had it with my job. It's killing me.

It pays okay, benefits are acceptable, but atmosphere is toxic. We have more managers than employees, change is constant and illogical and always falls on the Project Mgrs (me). The amount of stress is stupid for this industry (Commercial Print/Marketing).

I'm a 57/yo woman.
I have over 36 years experience in Printing, most in management/graphic arts.

I'm terrified of looking for a new job. I'm single and a homeowner. I don't have any backups if this fails, but I might actually get fired soon because I'm refusing to take on YET ANOTHER responsibility that is NOT part of my job description. I'm done. Over it.

I'm going to hire a resume writer and someone to finish my damned LinkedIn profile (freaking hate LinkedIn, full of bullshitters and ass-kissers).

Someone give me a freaking pep talk. Tell me someone will hire me. I'm good at what I do...really good. I can do damn near anything in this business other than run a press. I'm hiring material, right? Just because I'm "older" doesn't mean I'm useless, right?

Hate this...hate, hate, hate...

Oh, happy Friday!!!

Phantom Pain (in the ass)

Is it just me or when you see "White House Live" notifications do you still cringe? It's only a split second before I think, "Oh...no...we're good now". It wasn't that long ago that I would frantically scroll past, preferring to get my info from a place less toxic...like DU.

I swear that shitstain damn near ruined my passion for DC. I'm recovering, though. Just spent about 45 minutes lost on the Library of Congress web site searching for old manuscripts and legislation.

I feel much better now.


I just went searching for Elad to give him a heart. The guy in the closet in the back room with the hamsters deserves love too.

I noticed he only has an 83% chance of serving on a jury. That sort of made me chuckle. You think he'd just 'default' to 100%. Not that he'd 100% want to serve on a DU jury.

Ah...remembering the jury days when Meta was alive.
