I work at a union factory job. I like it there. And as a hobby, I do art on the side. The people at work have found out about this, and now every time some art-related event comes up... 10 different people feel the need to tell me about it. Don't get me wrong, I'm flattered that they think I'm actually good at art (I'm not) and it's nice of them to tell me about things they think I'll be interested in... but this also leads to me getting roped in to doing things I don't really want to do. For example: one of our beloved employees is retiring this month after 30 some odd years of service to our company. And they asked me to draw her a kind of poster for everyone to sign. I say "asked", but really, they just assumed I'd do it and told me to. And I love her to death and I'm happy to make something for her, but they only gave me two weeks' notice for an 18" x 24" piece, and I work all week, so I only have weekends to work on it, and last weekend something more urgent came up. So I now have to get this project done in two days. I hate this. I hate the pressure on me. I hate knowing that every person in my building will see this drawing and be analyzing and judging it. I hate that I didn't even get to decide what to draw, my mom completely commandeered the project; I'm just the pen and she's the author. (My mom works with me at this place.) So I'm not very passionate about this piece because it's not what I want to do. I feel like my creativity is being stifled. I hate that I'm just a machine to bring other people's ideas to life because they can't get it out on paper. I hate that my own ideas drown in the sea of other people telling me what to do, not just in art, but in life in general. I just hate it.

  • Here's something I've done when I had this particular problem, which wasn't exactly a morally totally okay solution but at least made No one feel bad: I just fucked it up. Drew something that looked horrible or didn't deliver on time or just did what I wanted without following their specific orders. Basically, they wouldn't listen when I told them why it's not okay to assume I'd do it so I showed them instead. I know it's a bit pitiful but I am mostly free now.

  • Yes. People these days are pretty lazy and unmotivated these days so they jump on people who have a little bit of talent. I would recommend asking for more notice for these projects or ask them to come together as a group for a craft night so they can do something like a home decor project idea that you see on Pinterest so they can buy supplies and help out.

I've had days lately where I wish I could just call out from work for the day. It's just, I hate my job some days. I hate the pressure. I hate being yelled at by mean customers. The anxiety and depression is getting to me. I'm having one of those days now. But I can't afford to lose hours on my check. I just want to cry and not get ready for work. My supervisor doesn't know I have issues with anxiety and depression so I'd have to tell her if I call out.

  • Are you living in a country where you can go to a doctor who writes you a sick note so you don't have to go to work? Because if so, you can get written sick for that.

  • I also suffer from anxiety and depression, and if your boss is someone you're even relatively friendly with, I would tell her if I were you. Don't use it as an excuse to call in, but let her know maybe at a time when you're not having a bad day. It's not a secret to be ashamed of. On the other hand, forcing yourself to work past your issues to go to work and get things done may actually be good for you because it'll help you learn to cope. But I'm no doctor. I suggest getting help if you can. I wish you the best.

There's this guy that I like, all because he has a fierce eyes. His eyes look like a mountain lion's eyes in the sun. I took a pic of him in black and white filter once which he likes. Somehow his eyes were like diamonds and I like the fact that he looks like a vampire. I think it is sexy. Personality wise, he's a bit awkward but he's chill and intellectual and he gets my curiosity in terms of everything and also is easy going and likes adventures. He's not muscular and all but he's descent and I like him a lot. But he's my closest friend and colleague at work especially its an academic setting. I can't really date him though....

I have to get my boss off my head. She's 42 but damn she is looking great! She works out a ton (I know that because she talks about gym all the time) and takes very good care of her skin and hair and all that. And I can't get her off my head, I'm going crazy!

Today i woke up pretty early and got an appointment for my job interview, which i am really exited and really nervous about. for a change, i made breakfast. not only was it relatively healthy for a change, but it was also quite good, plus i didnt made a mess out of the kitchen like i usually do when i cook. And on top of all that, when i looked out of my open window, i saw big fluffy flakes of snow falling from the sky. And this made me think. Maybe this will be the change i so desperatly needed in my life. I often got told that i would have depression, and that i need help. But i know for a fact, that thats not true. You cant cure depression, but you can cure a shitty life, and i may have found the remedy. I still got a bit of time before i have to start my old job for the last few months this year again. So i can get my drivers license, get the job for september, and finish a piece of work i started last year. This is the first time i can say this is it without suicidal intend.

I was given a job responsibility I didn't want. Other people think it's great, but I don't like it at all.

  • I'm a dude

  • Do NOT be alone with him. As a dude, I gotta say. That's NOT normal flirting. That's creepy shit.

I knew my crush supposedly had a secret girlfriend- but since I heard this from someone else, not him, I've been skeptical about the validity of the statement. But I had an idea of who it was and why it would be best to keep it on the down low. And today, I saw them together outside of work, and she was riding in his car. She lives pretty far away from our side of town, so she had no reason to be riding with him... unless she was going home with him. I mean it's possible that she had car trouble and he was giving her a ride despite the distance because he's just a very kind person, and he's given rides to several people who lived way out of his way. But they've been friends for a while now, and they have really good chemistry despite her being a wild rebel and him being a reserved goody two shoes. Don't get me wrong, I think she's great and I even consider her my friend. One of the few people at work that I'd hang out with outside of work. But seeing them together made me feel sick to my stomach. Knowing that the whole time I thought he might be flirting with me, he was probably actually waiting for her to get promoted so that she didn't work in his area anymore. Knowing that the whole time I was trying to get him to realize how important he is to me, he was probably trying to get her to realize how important she is to him. I'm happy for them, I really am. I just... feel so shattered. So stupid. I can't believe I thought someone like him would actually like someone like me, especially when my competition is a smart, funny girl who is also literally a model. Even I think she's hot. I just wanted to vent my feelings here because even though I wish them the best, I can't help but hurt inside, and I don't know who to talk to about this.

  • it's okay, i have the same case, and it is so hurt to watch someone you love/have a crush on, with someone else beside you and they have this romantic conversation etc. You may feel like you enough for him and prettier than girls he ever met, but sometimes reality not as our expectations, so it's normal, we're human

  • It's absolutely okay to be hurt by this turn of events. Unfortunately we don't have much control over who we have feelings for but we do have control over how we act on them. I'm sorry things didn't work out, but its good you're happy for them. But don't get so down on yourself and compare yourself to her. A lot of relationships come dowb to chance and lucky timing. He could have easily gone for 'someone like you'.
