I’ve been a supervisor/trainer at my theatre for two years and I’ve been employed at the theatre for five; I’m trained as an usher, box office, birthday party, and recently was trained in concession with the expectation I would take over new hire orientation as well.
So they opened up a few more concession supervisor positions because some of the vets will be leaving over the summer and they want a reasonable overlap, plus I need a partner to do orientation training with.
Anyways, one of the newer employees (been here maybe 5 or 6 months. Got employee of the month on her fourth month and has been acting like she’s a God because of it) applied for the position. I never had any problems with her before, we used to chat in the break room, I digress. She started talking to my face that she wouldn’t respect me in the concession if I were on a supervisor and she was working; she said this multiple times and both to me and behind my back. So I reported it to the manager and so did other staff.
Surprise surprise, yesterday (7/13) she doesn’t get the position because she clearly can’t stand the idea of working with (or under?) me.
Good news the three girls and guy who did get the open positions are all excellent workers and have great patience for new hires.
TL;DR coworker complains that she won’t respect me to my face and applied for position working directly with me. Staff report she has been badmouthing me and she doesn’t get the position.

au where jimin and jeongguk work as camp counselors during summer break. for this particular camp, they’ve been assigned to be in charge of different groups. this camp also happens to be a competition and the group that earns the most number of points at the end of the three weeks will win the grand prize. obviously, this means war.
jimin: jumps and clings onto jeongguk while jeongguk’s waiting for the ball to be passed to him. jeongguk: presses kisses onto jimin’s face and neck while jimin’s helping his group decorate their banner. everyone else: why did we separate them.
Aunt Jilli, I recently found out I'm allergic to sunlight. I don't know whether to embrace it and (be lame and) just go with the vampire vibes or to be upset that I can't enjoy summer vacation like I used to. I've got PLE and it seems like it's getting worse as I get older. Any encouraging words?
I say embrace it.
Also, there’s no reason you can’t still enjoy summer vacation! I have become ridiculously sensitive to sunlight, thanks to medications and migraines (whoo, breaking out in hives and welts from sunlight is … interesting), and I still go outside on sunny days. The trick is lightweight breathable fabrics to shield your skin (possibly after running them through the wash with a package of SunGuard, which adds SPF to fabric!), a big hat, and a parasol.
Concrete steaming in
The summer sun,
Teeming with sweaty,
Pushy people on their way
To somewhere…who cares?
I want to run
But I’m afraid I’ll fall
In the cracks, break
My own back…let me
Curb my grumbling.
I get carried away,
Somewhere else less heated,
Past the heat lightning
And pop-up thunderstorms,
Over the rainbow–
Cool as the flipside of the pillow,
Calm as a library on the weekend–
And there are no people.
I wouldn’t want to live there,
Maybe a prolonged vacation.
Well, after months of queries and doubt, I’m pumped to announce that I’ll be working with Ms. Saritza Hernandez of the Corvisiero Literary Agency. In the maddened frenzy that was last summer, I found Ms. Hernandez’s Twitter, where she had noted an interest in a manuscript that took place in the 20s or 60s, and involved non-traditional sports, like lacrosse or rugby.
Rugby, you say? I conveniently had a 250 page manuscript that was literally just that. It was even illustrated.
So I wrapped it up with a big old bow and sent it off. Months went by and so did more queries to other agents, other rejections. I took a break from the whole thing over the holidays and didn’t start up until the new year. Then, come March, there was a little note from Saritza in my inbox. She loved the sample pages, could she please have the first few chapters? Buzzing like a lightbulb that was about to pop, I sent it to her straight away. I figured she’d need a few weeks to get around to it considering the first gap, so there was no need to go hanging hopes on stars that weren’t even lit. Or real.
Or so I thought until I found another note from Saritza as I was getting ready for work the next morning. She apparently didn’t need sleep and devoured the first three chapters, could I please send the whole damn thing? I’m not positive what happened in the space right after that, as I’m pretty sure I exploded, died, sent the email from the afterlife, and then promptly revived, wondering if this life where good things happen was actually mine.
Acknowledgements: AAAAAA okay: a THOUSAND thank yous to my wonderful wonderful artists matt and grayson, for all your hard work AND for your endless patience in putting up with me, Human Disaster™. Thank you to Luci for making this event possible!!! and thank you to rebekah and om for being my cheerleaders throughout this - i would die for you all
Summary: In the summer of 1824, Jessamine Kaldwin goes to Karnaca. (14958 words)
Excerpt: “I haven’t been ordered to return you to the palace,” he says, before she can break the silence. Jessamine blinks.
“It was never the Duke’s intention to make you feel trapped here, your Grace. If you wish to explore the city, then he has no desire to stop you. He has asked only that you allow a chaperone to accompany you,” at this, he gestures to himself, the steady baritone cadence of his voice lilting up slightly, “Karnaca is not – tame, your Grace, and he would rather avoid having to tell the Emperor that he allowed the Crown Princess to come to harm.”
Jessamine blinks again, her chin dipping down toward her chest. “Oh,” she says, “That is - understandable.”
“Do you find the terms agreeable, then?” he asks, a note of - humor? or something like it - present underneath the clipped formality. He holds himself very still - perhaps it’s not humor at all in his voice, she thinks.
She tilts her head. “You are to be my chaperone?”
He inclines his in agreement. “If you find it agreeable,” he says again. Jessamine raises her chin, considering.
“I do,” she says after she’s stretched the silence thin.
I offer a ruler of 8 inches with differently shaped holes in it, a rain-soaked jumpsuit, a drawing of two mermaids reaching out to each other and a midnight trip to the kitchen to eat an entire pack of cookies in the dark. Should I keep asking her when she's available this summer break? She promised she'd tell me but I'm kinda scared that if I won't ask we'll just stop talking and that will be the end and I don't want that.
Hi guys!! Sorry if i don’t post as much lately. It’s kinda weird cuz it’s my summer break but i was a lot more active during school. Anyway i hope you guys are holding up!! We haven’t had much new canon material coming out lately but this fandom isn’t going anywhere. Goodnight and i hope you’re having a great day 💕💕💕
Honestly my non-binary heart is so happy seeing this. The first graders had to interview and make a quiz about teachers that work at our school to present on their final day of classes today before summer break. One of the first graders drew this picture of me. The homeroom teacher showed me and apologized that this is how I look like but little did they realize this actually made me feel very validated in my identity because all the students drew the female staff all girly and to them this is how I look. I’m so happy they view me in a non-feminine way. Thanks for making me laugh and smile bunches.
Someone on twitter raised a good point and I tend to agree with him. He said that the suitcase thing just pushed back new music 6 weeks Bc Tay wanted to stay out of the limelight. With the trial and the shit show that comes along with it, i see this as a real possibility. Her break probably wouldn't of been this long if some of these low level faux-lebrities would actually stop talking about her. Anyway, you are one the most sensible blogs, I thought I would get your opinion.
i completely disagree that the suitcase thing —-or any other events like KP talking about her – had any impact on her break from public life extending through the summer, or any music schedule or timeframes.
Once the trial dates were decided by the judge in January i think her album timeline was likely formed. And i think taylor’s definitely working on her own schedule, doing what she wants and at her own pace. Some inane and outlandish rumor isn’t going to change her schedule.
Add’lly, Adv/Marketing plans are planned long in advance for something like this … especially when you consider if there are magazine covers/interviews that could (in theory) accompany the album announcement, album release or single release. They would have been placed on the publication’s schedule accordingly some time ago.
