i really do need to complete more of my work

Lie to me? Steal my work? Have fun going from 52K a year to minimum wages.

(warning: long story)

Takes place back in 2014, long read with a lot of buildup to revenge. I was about a year into my job and was being recognized for my talents and promoted pretty regularly. I was constantly being used as the liaison between my company and the client companies we had business and contracts with, and literally have saved our contract companies hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Then I was approached by Amy, who was in another department, for a job opportunity in the next month or so. She was going out on medical leave and was going to train me to take over her position in the interim and then fully take it over once she came back and moved into a new role. I was ecstatic because I knew she had a salary position and that’s what I really wanted. Most of the salaried positions in the company were the kind you had direct reports and in my industry there is a lot of stupid and handholding so I was not looking forward to have to deal with that stuff, but here was this angel offering me the salary I wanted and the stepping stone I wanted to get further in the company, all without having to deal with stupidity on a daily basis! So for the next 3 weeks I’m pulled from my current duties about twice a week to train in her position. In the beginning it was really menial stuff to get aquatinted with her department but then we started getting into the bigger Excel stuff. Now her job was 90% Excel based, but in having her teach me her job and the duties and deadlines for certain things I realized she was basically flying by with basic Excel knowledge (I’m taking formulas to do math and VLOOKUPs were the majority of what she used in EVERYTHING). Now I was really okay with it and knew I could bring a lot more to the position with my knowledge and really help out the management team and showcase my expertise to them.

anonymous asked:

hello~ ive been struggling losing weight... im 55 kilos at 5'1and i want to be 10 kilos lighter :( im asian and its so hard to be a bit chubby with all your skinny friends around you... D: do you have any tips? :( I just feel really down and i need someone to talk to!

I completely understand! I feel it’s a little more difficult for Asians since we’re expected to be thin because of “genetics” or the food we eat.

I used to be 58 kg~130 lb and after dieting and exercising I’m now down to 49 kg~108 lb and I’ve developed daily routines that help maintain my weight. I do realize that I’m a bit underweight but I feel fine and I always have enough energy to work out :-)

These are my personal routines:

  • I make myself drink lots of water (or I drink Korean barley or burdock tea which are both really good for weight loss)
  • I eat one large meal a day (this isn’t on purpose my work schedule interferes with eating) but there is this famous book in Japan about the health benefits of eating one meal a day here
  • Every time I’m hungry I snack on fruits or veggies or nuts until I’m full
  • I exercise regularly with my typical workout being 1 hour of walking, 20 minutes of cycling, 100 waist whittlers, and 30 minutes of hula hooping

Please don’t adopt my tips wholly as it’s not some set “diet”. It’s something that my body has gradually adjusted to and I don’t support extreme diets. I always eat when I’m hungry and I know my limits when I’m exercising.

General tips:

  • Drink lots of water
  • Carry around small ziploc bags of fruits/nuts or have them ready in your fridge when you want a snack
  • Have a small journal to carry around and write down little notes of encouragement and letters to yourself you can also write down all the food you ate and exercises you did to track yourself
  • Don’t count calories, it’s a waste of time and it’s a hard habit to break
  • Hang a dress or some piece of clothing you really love in your room for motivation (even buy one a size smaller if you want)
  • Keep junk food and other temptations out of your sight or try to get your parents to buy less of it
  • Watch kpop music videos and dance practices to give you motivation

Before you give up:

  • Drink a glass of water count to 100
  • Watch girl group music videos
  • Read letters and words of encouragements you wrote
  • Think of all the times you gave up and how many more times you’ll say “tomorrow”
  • Scroll over this tag I keep of bodies for motivation
  • Read over this whole entire answer I’m giving you and just know that I’m spending an hour to give you advice because I 100% wholeheartedly believe in you

Shopping list/foods to eat more of:

  • Watermelons
  • Apples
  • Berries
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Boiled eggs
  • Broccoli 
  • Edamame
  • Raw nuts
  • Avocados
  • Oatmeal
  • Chicken breast
  • Non-fried fish
  • Tofu
  • Brown rice

My workout playlist:

Please don’t mull over for a long period of time on issues such as weight. I know everyone has those days where we get depressed with our weight but also remember that you are blessed with a body that is healthy! Don’t worry and good luck :-)

DEC 2015 EDIT: This was answered about 2 years ago so a lot has changed! I gained some healthy weight back and stopped eating one meal a day.

Scars

pairing: Lucifer x Reader

fandom: Lucifer

request:  Hey 😊 Could you write a reader x lucifer (fox) where she is helping him tend a wound in his back after a case and discovers his scars? Thank you!!

@nekodemon73 @kumpmk @is-that-not-something @un-education @bookswillfindyouaway


As soon as the ‘bing’ sound of the elevator was heard and the doors opened you rushed into the apartment, Lucifer hanging almost lifeless against your shoulder. He had vehemently refused to go to a hospital. 

'The devil needs no doctor’ my ass. He was bleeding out with a wound across his back, something he had gotten while pushing you out of the way. There had been a few times in the past where you had been fairly close to believing his story. Right now wasn’t one of them. 

With Lucifer lying on his stomach, stretched out across the couch, blood running down everywhere he look like every normal human being would.

“Don’t run away while I’m gone.” You say jokingly, attempting to get a response out of him. The guy could never shut up after all. 

He makes a low groaning noise which is good enough for you so you disappear in the bathroom and look for some bandages. Finding alcohol to disinfect the wound surely wouldn’t be a big problem. 

With everything you need in hand you return to the living room and put the things down on the little table. When you try to push up his shirt he suddenly tenses and abruptly sits up.

“You can go now, I can take care of the rest.” 

“No. I didn’t bring you to a hospital even though I should have but I’m not leaving you like this. You can barely sit upright.” 

“You really do not need to…”

“Yes! …this is my fault." 

You were thankful that he had saved you but couldn’t help to feel guilty. Police work was relatively new to you and you hated to admit it but this whole mess had really been your damn fault. You were an idiot for misjudging the situation and heading in like a complete fool. 

He sighs, turning your back to you, "Just…get it over quickly.”

At first you thought it was more blood that you were seeing but after you had cleaned the wound with alcohol you realized what it really was. Scars. Scars in the form of what resembled the form of wings or rather the place were his wings should be. 

Was it another of his lies or had he been telling the truth all along? The better you got to know him, the harder it was to tell.

“Aren’t you finished yet?” Lucifer asked a bit impatiently. 

You clear your throat, try to tear your eyes away from his back and wrap the bandages around before you get distracted by the sight in front of you again. 

“Y-yeah all finished.” You stutter out and try to smile at him when he looks back at you.

“Could you…would you mind not telling anyone?”

He looked sad, insecure. Something you had never seen on him before. There usually was an air of invincibility around him that seemed shattered right now. You nod, hand him a fresh shirt you had gotten from his closet earlier and stand up to leave. He needed some time alone and it felt like you had already intrude further than you should have.

The disappearance of Bucky Barnes took more of a toll on you than you’d expected.

You would’ve liked to say that it really didn’t matter all that much because it really shouldn’t have. You knew nothing more than his name and his address and the exact depth of his voice, the exact color of his eyes and brightness of his boyish grins. 

It’s been nearly two weeks without a word from the man that you’d quickly formed a bond with. 

You fancied your pride over desperation, however, so you responded to his radio silence with that of your own. You’d done so with a frown on your face and a yearning in your chest that begged you to search for him. Especially so after his most recent text, one that he’d sent you the night he took you out for a ride; it had been an oddly comforting text message. But then he never responded to your morning text. And then your afternoon text. And then one more after that.

And then you’d surmised that maybe he’d gotten bored with you.

I’m Amy a mentally ill (borderline and schizotypal personality disorders specifically) trans girl, and a week or so ago my laptop completely stopped working, and as I’m currently not working,

I kinda need help to either get it fixed or buy a second hand replacement from ebay or something.

I’m really sorry for doing this but, trying to apply for jobs and finish some ebooks to try selling is much harder using just a phone rather than a laptop or anything.

As I mentioned I am attempting to write ebooks to sell, and I would be more than happy to write you some kind of fiction, just note it might take at least a few days or a week as I only have my phone to use.

I’m more than happy to write most kinds of things, both sfw and Nsfw stories are fine.

My most comfortable things to write are, I guess f/f love things, and maybe on the Nsfw side furry type stuff?

My only fic on tumblr is this https://adorablyamy.tumblr.com/post/157175234852/like-always-the-sheepy-girl-is-just-wasting-her Nsfw sexual content warning for that link

Anyway thanks for reading reblogs and things would be greatly appreciated.

Oh and my PayPal is amymeadows248@gmail.com

Just send me a tumblr message or ask or something about what you would like I guess.

Thank you so much for even reading this.

The Behind-The-Scenes Story Of Prince’s ‘Little Red Corvette’ Video


By 1983, Prince had released five albums. The first four — For You, Prince, Dirty Mind, Controversy — all performed well. (Prince and Controversy were both certified platinum; “I Wanna Be Your Lover” off Prince hit number 11 on Billboard’s charts.) But it was 1999 that put Prince in front of a wider audience with massive radio airplay.

And it was 1999 that spawned Prince’s first music videos with a real chance of being seen. What had been primarily promotional clips – something even The Beatles were doing in the late 1960s – were now called music videos and were catching fire thanks to MTV (or, for a large amount of people who didn’t have MTV, there was Friday Night Videos on NBC and Night Tracks on what was then called WTBS). Problem was, MTV, now notoriously, wasn’t playing music videos from African-American artists.

This changed with Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” and Prince’s “Little Red Corvette.” Prince had made a video for the song “1999,” but it received sporadic airplay, at least at first. (Then a lot later.) “Little Red Corvette,” a single that would peak at number 6 on the Billboard charts, was the video that introduced the viewing public to Prince.

In I Want My MTV: The Uncensored Story of the Music Video Revolution, Lisa Coleman of The Revolution remembers, “We were on tour when ‘Little Red Corvette’ started doing well on radio, so we squeezed in a video. Bryan Greenberg, a (video) director flew in, we set up our gear at the venue in Jacksonville, and Prince threw together some choreography.”

Prince and The Revolution played Jacksonville on February 19, 1983.

Greenberg, almost strangely at that time, already had a lot of experience shooting music videos. Michael Nesmith (yes, the Michael Nesmith from The Monkees), had started a show for Nickelodeon called PopClips that ran weekly in 1979. PopClips was the granddaddy of all music video shows and introduced the idea of VJs. (It was initially supposed to have comedians in-between the videos, but that idea was quickly scrapped.) Eventually, as Nesmith became less involved, Greenberg became one of the people running the show.

Even by 1983, there weren’t a lot of people who knew how to make music videos. So, as Greenberg explains today, it really wasn’t that strange to find out on short notice that he’d be flying from Los Angeles to Florida to film a music video for Prince.

“Warner Bros. found us, they called us up, and next thing you know, [producer] Beth [Broday] and I are sitting in front of [Prince’s manager at the time] Steve Fargnoli, talking about doing a video for Prince.”

The deal was, they’d fly to Lakewood, Florida, where Prince was rehearing, and film a video for “Little Red Corvette” and Vanity 6’s “Drive Me Wild.” Greenberg recalls the budget was minuscule, under $20,000, “and their only stipulation before agreeing to shoot the video was that they wanted half the budget paid immediately… in cash.”

The original plan for the “Little Red Corvette” video was quite different than what was eventually produced. There was always supposed to be the stage work we see, but also another part filmed with Prince and Vanity driving around in a red Corvette. When Vanity died in February, Prince performed “Little Red Corvette” and dedicated it to her – and, as it turned out, she was almost the co-star of the video.

Greenberg remembers, “Originally we were going to shoot the next day. It was actually a night shoot. It was him and Vanity rolling around in a red Corvette that was going to be towed around this little lake. It was really beautiful, a really pretty area we were filming around where we were shooting. But, at the time, Prince hadn’t done anything outside of being onstage. And he’s very shy. He really keeps to himself. So I always knew in the back of my head that I just don’t think he’s going to do this. He wouldn’t have control. He wouldn’t be able to control the situation.”

After a day of shooting the stage work, both Greenberg and Prince mutually agreed to nix the whole Corvette part. “At the end of the day,” Greenberg recalls, “Prince looked at me and I looked at him and it was like, ‘You know, we’ve got the video. We don’t need to do any more. This will work.’ And we both kind of decided we had the video. I literally took the crew out to Epcot Center the next day instead of shooting.”

Oh, yes, the video we actually see Greenberg says, “He wouldn’t always tell me what it was he was doing. When he does that little dance across the stage, he does the splits. And this is only because he didn’t know; he didn’t know how to work with a director or DP, this was all new to him. This is before Purple Rain and this is his first experience with film. So, he didn’t tell me what he was going to do. He said, ‘Just follow me.’ So I follow him and he does the splits and he drops below my camera. You can’t just drop! It doesn’t work that way. So I explained to him how we needed to do that. We did it two more times and that take is actually the third take of that sequence.”

It’s here that it should be noted again: Yes, they had now completed a brand-spanking new Prince video that would eventually become one of the most-seen music videos in history – but, at the time, they didn’t know that because, again, MTV wasn’t really playing videos from African-American artists.

Greenberg remembers, “We finished the video, it comes out, and people were still wondering what to do with it… Obviously everybody went away happy. Nobody ever thought when we finished the video, ‘Oh my God, we just did something that will live on forever.’”

(They also finished the video for Vanity 6’s “Drive Me Wild,” which ends with a big party scene on the same stage where Prince danced to “Little Red Corvette.” Greenberg remembers this video as a very different experience, “Prince was dragging me around, ‘Shoot this guy doing this.’ It was very freeform.”)

Prince could be, let’s say, eccentric and, at the time, he was still only 24. Beth Broday has said she wasn’t allowed to speak directly to Prince (a story Greenberg confirms), which, to her credit, she wasn’t having. As she told Rob Tannenbaum and Craig Marks for I Want My MTV, “I walked over to him and said, ‘I was told not to talk to you, but I can’t work like that. I need to communicate with you or this is not gonna work, okay?’ And he said, ‘Okay.’ That’s all he said, but at least it was something.”

The way Greenberg remembers Prince is kind of like the way he remembers a lot of the rock stars he’s worked with (and he’s worked with everyone from Michael Jackson to Van Halen): They all have egos and Prince was not an exception, “Prince had that big-time rock star persona, even back then.” Prince was very shy, which sometimes made it especially hard to break through. But Greenberg remembers a specific moment with Prince he cherishes – a moment, we can assume, not many people got to experience.

“So, Prince literally flew me into New York to cut the Vanity 6 video,” Greenberg says. “And by this time we’d been around each other for a while. At some point in that edit session – we almost edited for almost 24 hours-straight; we had one day to do it, it was crazy – but somewhere in the middle of that, Prince finally decides, okay, you’re part of my group, part of the entourage. I had made it past the gate. And he was there being himself, not Prince – being a person.

And he was very funny. He had a quick dry wit. And there was a moment where we were just connected on a personal level that hadn’t happened before. And I left feeling good about that. That he felt relaxed and comfortable enough around me that he didn’t have to carry that persona. He could be more himself, the way he’d be around friends. So, I got to see the real person for a little while and he was a genius. And I was glad I experienced the person as a real person – to see he was a real human with humor who was sensitive about things and really liked the people around him. I felt good I saw that side of him.”

Also Aizawa’s trolling smiles crack me up every time help

extremely specific quick-leveling minimal-effort guide for that one last non-80 straggler alt

I say extremely specific as in tailor-made to the particular problem of my second elementalist sitting pretty at level 40 for way too long, and wanting to finish leveling her fast so I can try weaver. I was pretty entertained by this style of grinding though lol so I’m sharing just for kicks


1. have a bunch of these hoarded:

you’re selecting the first(i think?) one on the list, an experience booster that lasts 20 minutes. and grab a bunch of some cheap food thing that also offers +10% exp from kills. I got these at meatoberfest in diessa plateau

2. have some beginner zones uncompleted… areas to explore, hearts to complete. 

3. get your armor as good and up to date as possible, and spec for power as much as you can. because the point of this is you HAVE TO KILL FAST, AND BULLETS TOO SLOW! I was on ele for this so I had no problem but do whatever you can to be able to kill things as fast as possible for your level. I just geared myself with a set of my race’s cultural gear when I started at lv 40, and again at 60, and that was enough to get me all the way through.

4. put on the mighty switch force OST. ~this step is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL

5. pick a beginner zone, put on your exp booster and your nourishment meal and start combing across the countryside. the exp booster works up a stack of +10% exp every time you kill an enemy. it caps at 10, meaning your exp is doubled, so kill everything in sight to max out that stack. you kill one thing, you have 60 seconds to find and kill another thing to keep the boost maintained. focus on yellow-named creatures because they tend to rack up the most bonus exp. but anywhere sort of out of the way or places where people are unlikely to stop and cull the enemies is good; creatures gain bonus exp the longer they’re out in the world. also for this reason, if the game wants you to change maps, avoid it as long as possible; it resets your boost stack, and enemies in new maps haven’t had a chance to rack up bonus exp so it’ll slow you down considerably.

anyway work your way through RAZING THE COUNTRYSIDE in the general direction of some hearts, and new unexplored areas to get more easy exp. no need to linger in one area after you decimate all its wildlife once. If you happen upon hearts that require you to kill things to complete, do those, as well as any events you come across with lots of things to kill. Remember you need to kill something at least every 60 seconds to keep your boost. but really, the more the better. I eventually started hoping on my raptor mount and using its attack to enter combat, and for some enemies this just killed them outright in one hit and I was able to move on immediately. combine this with some music to get you pumped and you will soon slip into the zone….. the Murder zone.


I ended up leveling up once about every 15 minutes, which is about once per experience booster. your additional food only lasts 10min so remember to reapply it. I ended up making lv 80 in 2 nights of staying up late (I wasn’t gonna sleep anyway tbh)

here’s last night with timestamps:

advantages: requires little conscious thought! requires no cooperation or interaction with strangers! works at any time of day! yet another excuse to listen to the mighty switch force ost on repeat for 4 hours!

if the halloween event were out I probably would have been doing this in the labyrinth and it would have gone even faster, but. yeah

Happy Monday!

April 3rd, 2017

Good morning, all! I’m a little recharged. Y’know, I’m really happy I journaled last night. I feel like I averted a complete panic attack. Talked with my sister more, which always helps. We’re in this together. My fiance is working from home today. Man, as much as we really love the Subaru, stuff keeps happening to it. A pebble hit our windshield so now we’re waiting on Safelite.

Goals

Steps: I’ve been keeping up with the gym for a few weeks now, but I think I need to keep my steps between 10,000-15,000. Now, I’ve been getting between 20,000-25,000 very often lately and I know you’re thinking, “Why on Earth move less?” I simply do not rest enough and I seem to eat much more appropriately for an activity level around 10,000-15,000 steps and what I do at the gym that morning.  

Squats: I’ve decided since last month was all about doing push ups, I’m going to take it upon myself to do squats this month. So, 100 squats every day in April. I’ll probably still do push ups on my upper body days. They’ve sort of just fallen into that routine and that’s awesome because I actually saw results!

My Monthly Workout Challenge: I am so excited to get started with this. I don’t even know what team I’m on yet, but I’m so ready!

Bits and Bobs

Migraines: They were much better this weekend. The weather really improved, which is the bulk of it. I felt like I was coming down with one last night because I was so emotional (it’s stupid how easy it is to trigger one sometimes) but I sat in a really dark room for a while and it called down. I’m becoming better at identifying triggers and my more subtle prodrome cues. It’s easy to tell when you have an aura, y’know? It’s not so easy to connect every little dull ache, tingle, or mood swing to prodrome, though.

Results of Push Up Challenge: I didn’t take any pictures, and the results are only really palpable because of my skin, anyway. I’m actually really happy with the result after one month. It’s made more progress on my triceps than most things have all year, so I’m going to keep doing them regularly!

Things That Make Me Smile

It would have been easy to convince myself to eat a lot of stupid things yesterday, but I sat down and wrote down everything I was thinking and feeling. That’s what that post yesterday was all for and about. I really recommend that anytime you’re feeling strong emotions to write something down, even if it’s a few sentences. At the end of the day, the “streak” is just a number but I’m really proud of that ‘24′ this morning.

You're the one (Tom Holland x Reader)

White light peaked above the horizon line, causing an array of warm pinks and purples to appear.

The arm of the man you loved draped around your waist, causing a tingle in your stomach and providing you warmth on the cool spring morning.
“Three years” his voice echoed silently through your eardrums.
“Three years with you,” he pauses, standing up.

You smile softly looking up at his dark figure against the sunrise.
He pulls you up off the wooden docks the two of you were dangling your feet off of just a moment ago.
“Three wonderful years,”
“the best years of my life.” You whisper into the cool morning breeze.
He smiles at your comment, planting a kiss on your forehead.
“I love waking up to see your beautiful face every morning, which reminds me of how much I love you. I love the witty remarks and the sense of humor, I love the way you giggle when I kiss your nose, I love everything about you, hell, I love you” he breathes out, a jumble of words he can’t seem to word properly.
“I love you too” you smile pulling him close.
He takes a step back, and pulls a little box out of his pocket. Kneeling down he opens his mouth, finally knowing what to say.
“Oh my god he’s proposing isn’t he” your mind jumps with joy, stomach feeling it twist into a knot, butterflies jumbling around.
Hands clasped over your mouth, tears bottling themselves up in your eyes.
“Y/N, I never wanted anything more than to have you by my side, but now I realize that I don’t want it, I need it.” He opens the box, revealing a teardrop shaped diamond laying atop a golden band.
“There are many ways to be happy in this world, but all I really need is you. They say to look into your future, what do you see? Well, all I see is you. Y/N, you are my future. No one will ever work harder to make you happy or cherish you more than me, I promise you that.”
Your emotions could not hold themselves back anymore. Tears poured down your face as if they were two waterfalls.
“I know my life will never be complete without you beside me to share it. Y/N Y/L/N, will you marry me?”
You wipe always tears from your face nodding your head.
“Yes! Of course! Was there any doubt?” Your voice cracking and more tears came tumbling down.
He chuckled, the biggest smile you had ever seen was glued perfectly on his face as he slipped the ring onto your finger. Standing up again he brings you close and hugs you tightly, kissing the top of your head.
Cheers from the sailors in the boats nearby chanted as if they were a crowd. You turn your head and see Harrison on the docs behind you with a camera, Zendaya jumping up and down with excitement, and the twins laughing and clapping.
You look up at Tom, finally breaking the silence.
“That was definitely worth getting up at four in the morning.”
“Hell yeah it was” he whispers in your ear, hugging you again. You never wanted to let go, and neither did he.

A/N - Hey guys! Finally getting back into writing, and I think this is pretty good! Let me know what you think.

anonymous asked:

oh boy Ladrien kills me every day. The way that boy looks at Ladybug, he must feel so self conscience and naked and you can tell just how MUCH he loves her. Ladrien destroys me, I love it so much and I really enjoy your writing.

Thank you!

I actually made a text post screaming once because I felt personally victimized by the way Adrien looked at Ladybug in Jackady

It UPSET ME

HE IS SO IN LOVE

Ladrien is the angst ship in my book and I ADORE Ladrien angst but I also love imagining Ladybug calling Adrien all the ridiculous nicknames Leslie calls Ann in Parks and Recreation.

Like they know they love each other but they aren’t dating and it’s completely ridiculous? And everyone sorta figures something is going on between them but they don’t really question it? Like “hey Adrien how’s Ladybug doing?” and Marinette spits out her drink but no one notices because that’s how this show works apparently—

Embeeeerr you will REMEMBEEEEERRR!!

This is my first time doing Inktober and I literally barely made it to post on the actual first of the month. What have I gotten myself into omg

anonymous asked:

Hey Brian!I just wanted to say how much I adore the musical work you do on Star. It really is a true jem of a show that my sisters and I (of huge age gaps) love. I know that this may be really irrelevant but I don’t really have anyone in my life to completely go to this for. So far I have been fired from two jobs in the past few years, and while this kind of seems shallow I don’t see why. I have always been a hard-working person and I always gave 100% to everything I did (1/2)

(cont’d) I have asked my previous employers for feedback, before you recommend that btw. As someone who is now an accomplished person, what do you think is wrong? Do I need more soul searching, better resume, etc. Sorry for bombarding you with this (2/2)

Hi Anon! This is a hard question, because there are lots of questions I have on my end that I feel like would be necessary to give you a reasonably detailed answer (what’s your field? how long have you been working? where in the country do you live? what is the general economic status there? etc etc etc). 

However, I will say that getting fired or passed over for jobs is something that my wife and I (and basically everyone else in the entertainment industry) are VERY familiar with. For every industry success story you hear, that person probably had 100 failures. (Some high-up TV exec once told Jon Hamm to his face that he would never be a TV star. He said that to Jon Hamm’s ABSURDLY HANDSOME FACE.) It’s hard, and it beats down on your self-esteem, and you constantly feel like you are being judged by unknowable criteria for which you have zero control. And I have felt the same way after every other job I’ve had that went south. (I did a lot of other jobs before becoming a composer. I sold shoes for 2 years!)

I have failed a lot, and continue to do so, but I don’t post about it here because it’s not that interesting, and social media allows us to broadcast our successes and bury our failures. Focusing on things you can control, like your resumé, soul-searching, definitely helps, but for me, I only start to get somewhere productive when I look at the problems underneath the problems.

Hypothetical example – let’s say I got fired from someplace and the employer said I wasn’t enthusiastic enough. On the surface, this might seem like a call to raise my general energy level, maybe drink a lot of coffee before coming to work, listen to Jock Jams during my commute to get pumped up, etc. But underneath, maybe it means that I actually HATE what I’m doing, and no amount of 5-Hour Energy could change that. Maybe I should try something else? (Has happened to me.)

Second hypothetical example – let’s say an employer says I don’t “fit in” with the company’s or industry’s atmosphere, etc. On the surface, I could think that means I need to change the way I dress or act or talk. Or, it could mean that I just don’t fit in with the sort of people who worked at that company, and for my next job, I should find someplace that employs people more likeminded. (Has also happened to me. Okay, so these aren’t “hypothetical.”)

Again, not sure where you live or the economic status there, so I apologize if these examples seem out of touch or liberal snowflake-y. But I think they still make a general point.

So yeah, I have no idea why you were let go, and maybe it’s for reasons that are completely beyond our control and you’ve just hit a spat of bad luck, and any advice won’t help at all. It happens. But as you look for your next thing, I would say you should remember that every failure is an opportunity to look at what is going on underneath the surface, and identifying these deeper questions and answering them not only helps us figure out what we are supposed to do for a living, but also helps us become better, more focused, more whole people.

I wish you the best of luck with one of life’s most constant but rewarding struggles.

DADVICE RETURNS!

[Outside the Mill of Misery with Robert and Aaron]

ROBERT: Bob’s back! The fans and I are so excited. And as a bonus, we might actually get what we order, which reminds me, I haven’t had my trademark Americano in far too long.

AARON: I’m far too preoccupied with my #PeakAngst Plot to be bothered about Bob or breakfast.

ROBERT: But it’s my mission in life to make you happy and food always makes you happy. That is the way to a bloke’s heart and all *Pats Aaron’s Stomach*

AARON: *Recoils* #Foreshadowing

ROBERT: Are you okay? - I have a bad feeling about this -

AARON: Yep. I’m totally and completely fine. #StopLyingYouLiar In fact, I’ve really got to get to that job I never actually do. I mean, unless you count kicking a door in as work. Still, it’s a great Plot Device.

ROBERT: If we still need to talk… (FANDOM: Please do more talking!!!)

AARON: We did all the talking yesterday. #StopLyingYouLiar

ROBERT: That was hardly #ActualConversation Aaron. I mean, we were approaching it which means the Plot is totally going to blow up in our faces soon and force us to try to get there again. That seems to be the cycle. But you didn’t come to the pub yesterday when you said you would and you went to bed early.

AARON: Sucks being left out of the Plot doesn’t it?

ROBERT: Fair point.

AARON: Yeah well, since I did no work yesterday, I’m playing catch up now. So…another time, yeah. I need to be off screen now so your worry levels can escalate. But we’ll do something tomorrow.

ROBERT: What? More angst?

AARON: Probably.

ROBERT: Well we can’t tomorrow. The car’s in for its service.

AARON: You do remember that I also have a car, right? #PlotHole But anyway, we’re totally good at the moment. #StopLyingYouLiar See you later for more angst.

ROBERT: *This is going to get bad Face* - I never should have put on this tainted Red Shirt of Doom -

Hey sea-fam, I'm having a huge meltdown right now. Yesterday, I was told that I am not overcoming my OCD fast enough and that 80 percent of people would have made a lot more progress by this stage. I was told that basically, if I don't improve enough over the next few months I may have to go into a hospital. I'm terrified. I don't want to be away from my family. I thought I was doing so well and to hear this news has broken me completely. I really need to advice on how to handle this...

There is no fast enough. There’s working on it. That’s it. You need a new therapist. What they mean is that you’re not doing it fast enough for them. Which is nonsense. You’re doing your best, you are doing well. You are the one that determines how well your treatment is going. If you see yourself improving, if you see your life getting better, if you’re functioning better, then you’re doing amazing.

I strongly suggest seeking a new therapist. If you really, really want to stay with this one, tell them firmly that your treatment is going as fast as you need it to. That you’re pleased with your progress and will continue at the pace that suits you, not them. You will not go into a hospital because you don’t feel that you need it. If you felt like you did, you would. But you don’t. And you don’t appreciate them undermining your achievements because you don’t reach their expectations.
