I'm getting too invested in my job again. It's pretty dead-end and there is no incentive for me to do any extra work but I can't help but go full-steam into a thankless project.

Every job Iíve quit has been completely blindsided. They always think Iím super happy there because I must enjoy the job to be so motivated, but really I just donít have settings that arenít ďfull steamĒ or ďso completely checked out Iím gonna get firedĒ

The past few months I was okay at doing kinda the minimum and skating by but now the guilt is racking up.

I just wish there was a promotion path for me but I can't even get a raise and I'm making less than average for my area.

I think I'm a doctor, but that doesn't make me a doctor. This fancy avatar does.


Great, the Johnson and Johnson vaccine has been pulled because 6 people got blood clots.
Six...out of 6.8 million people vaccinated. Granted, I'm not an epidemiologist or immunologist or any sort of doctor or scientist, but that seems like REALLY low odds.

I was scheduled to get that vaccine today at 1 PM but not anymore.

I just wasted all my charitable impulse for the day on a wet lump of fuzz.

This has been the case for Oxford-AstraZeneca here (with so far one local death that can be attributted to blood clots out of a good million or so vaccinated people). As that was the only vaccine being used for younger folks, now it's only being used for the 60+ population (because clot risk is lower there I think?). A good number of teachers and healthcare people have gotten just the first AZ dose and don't know when or if they are getting the second one. Meanwhile TV keeps pumping up the issue all day - the local teacher who died, and four more cases in all of Europe, and then "Janssen also got six cases so no vaccine is secure!". So people are panicky and many are just saying they won't vaccinate because you can die from it - while the ICUs start getting pumped full of younger folks. It's a mess .

Latest software update (I guess) killed off my cursor/pointer thingy. Last year, an update killed off my sound. I "fixed" the sound by getting a USB sound card. I am using a plug-&-play mouse with my laptop, which at least gives me a cursor/pointer arrow. . . but I'm going to have to grit my teeth and buy a new computer.

First world problems, I know, which is why I'm just dropping a grumpy comment here.

Ugh, gently caress, dude. I know it's fairly meaningless from a rando on the internet, but my condolences. gently caress lovely drivers.

gently caress dude, that sucks a lot. The worst poo poo thatís going to linger is the ďwhat ifĒ stuff because itís so random. Iíve had two friends go like that and it sticks around for a long time and you canít let yourself go into that thought trap.

my day is literally lovely because my main sewer line backed up and spewed wastewater all over my living room, rendering literally half of my house completely uninhabitable for the foreseeable future

My laptop just went when trying to access my 4TB external drive over the network. Long story short, the drive is visible to Windows but not initialized, and I'm sick to my stomach thinking of the five years of photos, videos, music, work projects, and more that I'm going to have to pay someone to try to restore. gently caress. At least the drive was less than half full, I guess.

I ate a rest stop sandwich I really should not have and was very lucky I made it to the next rest stop without having to change my pants. Highway driving and an upset stomach are a match made in hell.

My mom made a lot of money, like a life changing amount of money out of all this stupid cryptocurrency bullshit partially with my help and then revealed sheís relapsed on meth. I havenít been this angry in years.

Nobody will benefit from this.
