Thank the flying spaghetti monster

News, I have a part time job. It's at a bookstore, it's four shifts a week, but it's something. Boy, do I need this something. There is something about being rejected over, and over, and over that just seems to kill you slowly, and painfully for everyone to watch. It turned me into this person, that would get angry just chatting with friends over gchat. So I'd then avoid that for a few days, and get more upset, stupid cycle that. It'd even make me not feel like reading, or have an ugly cry over something stupid like my character in the play by post not being special enough. And try talking to someone about how useless you feel for not finding a job, and you'd get platitudes like "I wish I could look for a new job" or "You're lucky, you don't need to settle for something." Lucky, yes, I'm seriously lucky that I can't find a job and feel guilty when buying something I need because my husband had to pay for it, yes lucky that.

So yip, thank the flying spaghetti monster I have a job.


  1. YAY for the job and in a book store - thats so cool :)

    I know that rejected feeling - I was looking for a new job on/off for 5 years!

  2. Thanks lady. Bookstores are awesome :)

  3. Welcome to "one of us" - now you can save up for special food outings ;D
