    So I Can Do Something Right

    I hate when people tell me not to be so hard on myself. They have no idea how hard I really am being on mydelf or even why. I deserve the harshest of criticisms. Job wise I left a fairly decent job behind because I couldn't take the unecessary stress that people were piling up...

    Blackballed

    I've been blackballed in my town by my ex-employer. She is a very, very vindictive and unreasonable person, and I rue the day I ever went to work for her. I've been jobless for almost a full year, which has never happened to me outside of me being a full-time student.
