    I'm going in for a job interview

    and can't decide whether I should ask for Saturday's or Sunday's off based on my mans liberty. He's about to go to MOS school, and I don't know which day would be best to ask off to go see him. Suggestions?

    The internet seems to be my new stand-in lover

    for when I feel abandoned and unloved by my real one. Can't talk to anyone about how I feel so I get on the internet to try to distract myself or find strangers to talk to. I feel like crying but no tears will come out. How frustrating is that? Happens a lot lately.
