I Really Can't Do This Anymore

Y'all, please convince me I'll find a job, please. I can't do this. I'm not qualified for anything. I'm not good at anything. I don't connect with people. There must just be something wrong and missing in me, and it's apparent from my resume. Other GTers have looked at my resume and tried to make it presentable,… » 3/16/15 12:07pm 3/16/15 12:07pm

Anyone Looking for Cute Gifts?

Ok, yesterday I mentioned my <relationship redacted>'s etsy store, which several of you said that yes, you would like a link. It's called Floss and Gems, and she has some really cute stuff. She has bead jewelry, and it's cute, but the more unique things are the needlepoint pendants. Some are more on the… » 3/10/15 10:23am 3/10/15 10:23am

Do You eBay?

I know that we all PubMed and bowhunt around here, as well as live in squalor and wallow in the despair of our mental dysfunction, but what I need to know right now is: Do you eBay? » 3/09/15 10:30am 3/09/15 10:30am

Because You All Care DEEPLY About My Love Life

I went on a date with an OKC guy on Saturday, and was a bit annoyed that all of his profile pics are apparently several years old. That's a new one for me. And makes me feel awfully shallow for being annoyed that he's not as good-looking as I was expecting. Maybe I can convince him to get a better haircut. I think… » 3/02/15 10:01am 3/02/15 10:01am

Things That Are Annoying

Ok, y'all, is it just me? Maybe I'm just an odd duck. But guys who send me a ONE WORD message on OKC are flipping annoying. If all you have to say to me is "Hey" then why on earth would I want to talk to you? Bah. » 2/23/15 10:17pm 2/23/15 10:17pm


Look at this gif. LOOK AT IT!!! Look at that side-eye. That side-eye is epic. Jane Curtin, you are a gorgeous marvel of awesomenity. And then look at what she's reacting to. Dear, God, I love her so much right now. » 2/15/15 11:40pm 2/15/15 11:40pm

Job Search Help

Someone on GT mentioned on twitter ages ago that they would be willing to help me make sure my resume is attractive to prospective employers and give help with writing a cover letter, etc. I'm feeling beyond despairing about my job search and sending up the bat signal. So, whoever you were who offered help, thank… » 2/10/15 4:25pm 2/10/15 4:25pm

This.  All of This.

Y'all. I don't even work in Corporate America (TM) and I have experienced so much of this crap. http://www.mcsweeneys.net/articles/reaso... » 1/30/15 11:58am 1/30/15 11:58am

Oh, the Irony

I was listening to a nationally syndicated morning talk show on my way in to work. (I had to turn it away from NPR because I can't stand Eleanor Beardsley's voice. She is clearly a great reporter, but, well I'm shallow and her voice makes me feel ill.) Anyway, they have a topic, and people call in with stories. … » 1/09/15 9:11am 1/09/15 9:11am
