Hey, what’s good on this Friday, everyone? We all know what this means, right? Weekend time’s upon us once again, and this time, it’s a long weekend. Labor Day weekend 2022, to be exact.
It’s been a hot minute since the last time I posted. Reason being is that this blog has gone on hold for now. This job search has literally swallowed my entire life whole, and it’s my end-all, be-all.
This job search has literally ruined my entire life. It’s ruined literally EVERYTHING for me. This was 20 months of my work, my effort, and my time away from my dying mom, and I got less than nothing to show for all of this. Fuck me and the horse I rode in on, I guess.
I wouldn’t wish this on anyone. Not even Hitler himself, ffs. If you’re going through this, I want you to know that you’re doing everything right, you got what it takes, and any company would be damn lucky to have you. Your hard work will pay off.
Fuck this waste of a year, now and forever. When my turn comes, I’m gonna devote the rest of this year to forgetting 2022 ever happened.
That said, what are your weekend plans? My weekend plans are nothing but the job search. Sorry not sorry anymore. This is how it has to be. It’s gonna be too cold for the pool closest to me that’s open, the spraygrounds are also too cold, and it’s the wrong time of the month for me anyways, haha. There’s also the Artemis launch this weekend, and I’ll be watching it on the NASA channel.
I’d love to hear all about your weekend plans, so drop em all like they’re hot, and let’s get this party started.
To ring in the long weekend, I got us some links from around the ‘net to talk about, share, what have you.
Cool take on pizza! I may do this w/ the next batch of pizza I make.
My mom woulda loved these grilled peaches. She loved the peach applesauce I made around this time a year ago, not long before she died.
I’d love to try these turkey meatballs sometime.
Hate chicken wings themselves, but I loved the boneless versions. I’d love to try these out sometime, even if it’s on chicken breasts or tendies.
I’d also love to try this take on spinach dip. Y’all know I’ve yet to make a spinach dip I didn’t end up loving to bits, haha.
A list of great LGBTQ-owned beauty brands to support and stan the hell out of.
Why gender-neutral bathroom options oughta be more of a thing.
Job scams are a thing, and this post may be the inspiration of a new post here.
A resource for workplace harassment and knowing what rights you have.
It’s sad this is even a thing, but here it is. Diversity needs to be a thing b/c it’s the moral and ethical thing to do, not b/c of business politics. By diversity, I mean everyone including those from historically disadvantaged and underrepresented communities.
On that note, these are the things that basically render any DEI initiative null and void.
I knew GameStop was a dumpster fire based on their stock performance, but JFC. I’m glad those employees all jumped ship, and I hope they’ve all moved on to bigger and better things.
We recently lost Anne Heche, and Olivia Newton-John (aka Olivia Neutron Bomb!).
The process for locating gravesites has started at the Red Cloud Indian School. JSYK, this link contains upsetting content, so if you’re not in a place to read something like this, skip this one.
So happy to see that the family of Henrietta Lacks is getting that much closer to getting justice for what was done to her w/o her consent. I gotta say, it’s about damn time Henrietta’s family gets justice for this.
I’m interested in cybersecurity, and I’d love to get into it someday. This is why it’s so important: a ransomware attack took a county in New Jersey back to 1977.
Leadership Reno has this initiative, Anonymous Employee, where employees can get recourse for any issues that come up, w/o the fear of retaliation. I wonder what it’s like. Anyone ever used this? If so, I’d love to hear about it.
It’s sad to say this, but fake job postings are a thing. While the article talks about fake job postings that require us to pay them whatever, I’ve come across at least one company that claims to be hiring, but it turns out they’re basically just farming resumes.
Show of hands, who here remembers Full House? Pepperidge Farm remembers. Bob Saget said in this post that the house the Tanners supposedly lived in wouldn’t have ever worked out for them.
Last, but not least, a signal boost for a few missing kids. There’s a statewide AMBER Alert for Florida, for 6 year old Jorge Morales. The last confirmed sighting of JoJo was August 27th, 2022. After new information came up, authorities upgraded this to an AMBER Alert on August 31st. If you see a child matching his description, make that call, ASAP! Let’s get JoJo home safe to those who care about him.
The last confirmed sighting of 7 year old Lydae Arnold, of St. Louis, MO, was on June 26th, 2022. According to the poster, Lydae may be in the company of an adult male. If you see a child matching her description, make that call. Let’s get Lydae home to those who care about her.
It’s now been 40 years since Johnny Gosch disappeared in 1982. The poster has an age-progressed photo showing what he could look like at 51 years old. I’m gonna operate under the assumption that Johnny is still alive, same as Summer Wells and Kennedy Hoyle, until proven otherwise. If anyone who finds this knows anything at all about Johnny’s whereabouts after September 5th, 1982, make that call. Let’s get Johnny’s family the closure they deserve, and better yet, let’s make this the year we get Johnny home safe to those who care about him.
