Yes! She is alive!
Yes! She is alive!
I bet you people never thought you'd ever see me again.... heh....
A great deal has happened in the last month and some since I wrote here, some of it very good, some of it horrific. Most of the horrific has to do with the job - go figure. So I'll start with the bad first.
I found out that starting in January, they are cutting my base pay by 25 percent. Guess who's going to be looking for a new job in the next couple of months? It is unbelievable that I have worked and sweated my *ass* off for these people, only to get... "Happy New Year, you're making 25 percent less!"
Y'know, I didn't kid myself when I came back to Baltimore that it was going to be cheap to live here anymore. I knew better - but Jesus Q. Christ, I am *barely* making ends meet now! What makes these idiots think that I can survive on the proposal they're giving me? Have they forgotten that I live in the land of the 1000 dollar a month apartment? Where even the "bad" neighborhoods cost 600 or more a month to live in? What the *fuck* am I gonna do? I am very lucky - the person that I am currently living with says that I can stay "as long as I want to" - but fucking hell, I am nearly 34 years old and I can't afford to even live on my own? What the HELL is the world coming to?
I'm sorry, for those of you with nice real estate stocks and portfolios - but this bubble's gotta burst sometime. There are people starving on the streets, man. One woman at work was sobbing her eyes out tonight because she doesn't know how she's gonna live. This is WRONG. It's just fucking wrong.
I just wonder how the corporate execs at a certain large financial institution are able to sleep tonight.
In better news: I did meet someone, through another medium. I think it might work out well. Luckily he's not the jealous type, so I can still, umm, fuck around if I so choose to. But as far as social engagements and the like, he's my "main pick". So far.
Sorry that I haven't answered any mail, postings, anything. There's too much to catch up on, so I deleted all and I'm starting from scratch. Feel free to write me back if you're so inclined.
