Alcohol addiction is incredibly difficult to fight. If ever you need to talk to someone, feel free to pm me.
Wow, interesting, i just decided to stop drinking for the next two weeks (and then reassess, potentially longer?) after one beer in the afternoon today. We are all in sync! lol
I do not like the police

This has been a difficult week, between power cuts, rains, floods, car breaking down, lost work hours, etc, etc. Sometimes it feels this thread is what I need to remind myself that soon I'll be able to rest.
The spanish translation is still on hold, I advanced a few pages, but it's difficult to take time when oh so much depends on me here. Worst part is only 50 pages. I hardly have time to do 1 when needed somewhere else. Other times, I rather relax.
I’m sorry to hear you’ve had such a rough week. Feel free to pm me if you need to vent.
What are you translating? If you don’t mind my asking of course.

new diversity initiative at work (currently we're only among the 6% of POC)
their memo was like: DID YOU KNOW WE CAN MAKE MONEY FROM BEING DIVERSE
i mean i guess you have to frame it that way in a company to get people to care but jesus christ
i mean people generally don't push for diversity even when it's proven that it benefits them so
Fun fact: the contexts that appear on comments in the user profiles and the latest comments page have shown the wrong author ever since they were introduced, and I didn't notice until this week since the text used to be unreadably tiny.
I got my driving license this week 🥳

It’s definitely been another hard frantic week in a long line of shit weeks lately. I just want someone else to take the wheel for a while. I need a year off. Ugh.
The wifi chip in my phone kicked the bucket. Now I have to get a new one.
I need to get a chimney sweep out before it gets any colder.
I'm fuggin' tired of this gig; I've been at it for about 2 weeks now.
Shit's not even a real fucking job but I'm burned out.
Pay's good, but I'm still spending most of my mornings and nights filling out spreadsheets. Shit's boring.
That’s fucking rough. Do you get to listen to music/spoken word at least? If so that can often make work less draining. If you’re into that, of course.
Yeah, I can; I work from home. Which is a trade off in of itself, since I have to work right after I eat breakfast until noon and start up again from 8 to midnight. I listen to D&D streams since those generally last the same amount of time. Unfortunately, it's not really the sort of thing I can turn my brain off for, a lot of specifications need to be met and they keep increasing.
My household really needs the money. I get paid a decent amount and it's temporary; which is a double-edged sword.
Words can't really describe the feeling of being able to buy anything I could see myself wanting in the immediate future (which isn't really all that extensive a list since I don't really enjoy that many things) but not enough to make a dent in my student loan debt.
That just sucks. I’m sorry to hear that it’s so demanding cognitively. At least it’s a temporary gig I guess.
I'm sober for entire week (not happened to me for, like, two years). And, even more surprising: I don't want to drink alcohol at all. I hope it'll last.
