So my coworkers are discussing their plans for winning the lottery and I'm the odd one. Woman says, "I'm gonna donate to the animal shelters." Man says, "I'm gonna buy all the cars and guns I always wanted." I'm all like, "I'm going to buy a pirate ship and a Blimp, combine them into an airship, and rule the air with my team of sky-pirates (or Skyrates for short)" I guess there are 2 kinds of people in the world.
Boy oh boy last night was a wild one. woooooweeeeeeeee!
popular unpopular opinion: i love how college degree snobs try to pressure you to go to college to validate their time there. saying "oh do u want to spend your life in retail? do u want a real job" but the joke is I know lots of people with a mountain of debt for some flimsy area of study with a degree that is i useless to the market working retail. and the other joke is automation is STILL coming for a lot of jobs that used to need "educated" people. so you'll actually be behind your non degree having counterparts in 5-10 years in terms of wealth. Many of the major tech companies aren't requiring CS degrees anymore (this is my new field) and my previous area of work as a counselor, I was strategic about padding my resume with volunteering in the areas of health community and domestic violence. After the college admissions scandal, things are even more funny. College has allowed a lot of uninteresting indistinguishable mentally lazy no drive or hustle having people get really comfortable feeling like they did something really unique and difficult but all you did is go down the road most traveled until people came trampling in over you.
I was captioning a video and someone said something over someone else. I need to caption everything said but I couldn't understand what she said. I started looking for the captions button before I realized, "Oh dang, that's me. I'm the caption person".
Everybody have their own taste of music, what's your weirdest song you ever heard? Why, is it the mudic rhythms or the lyrics ? Because someone just laugh at song in my playlist.

I watched a scary show for days and now I'm scared to go to the restroom alone how embarrassing
backstory: I'm a woman who grew up to (legal) immigrants in poverty, neglected (not always fed, left alone), sexually abused (teachers, cousins, family friends) and awkward looking (children who are lovely are more cared for I think). After puberty I changed a lot physically and I wasn't used to the opportunities that created for me(not going to lie, I think I got a few internships and jobs because on an interviewers personal curiosity) . I was always bright. I had perfect scores on all my standardized tests and took my regents exams in 7th grade. Because of this one good thing, I was able to go to a prep school in new England and make up for all the scars of neglect by being socialized with wealthy children who were cared for. I got into college, but the setback in completion was that my family refused to help financially (wouldn't even fill out a fafsa) and I couldn't afford (monetarily or health wise) to keep going. I met an upper middle class middle aged man and spent several years with him, not using my potential, but feeling loved. After he left, reasonably so, I became lazy. I started at a call center making $8 an hour. then by some luck I ended up parlaying my partial academic career in psychology into a door toward social work. Not a lot of money, but spiritually fulfilling. I found God again. Did that for 3 years, in the meantime studying some new math and searching for myself and opportunities to discover myself. Figured out I can kind of code, ended up in a computer science program. met a male engineer in my age group that is so virtuous and kind and ambitious and encouraging.. he tells me he loves me... and so far I've built 3 of my own apps (just for school/passion, not on the play store) . I'm this close to getting out of this fucking nightmare and my anxiety is through the roof!!!!! Part of being institutionalized is being so used to disappointment and failure that success kind of hurts. just my $0.02
Two months ago I installed some apps that happened to be made by Russian developers, and since then I've been getting ads in Russian on all my apps. I don't even speak the language! Even in-game prices are shown in roubles... Even considering that I live pretty close to Russia, Google's algorithms sure are quick to jump to conclusions.
