*head*smash* *head*smash* *head*smash* *head*smash* *head*smash*

I have had a day of days.

I found out so many things about my boss today that I am unsure if I can keep working for him.

He does not understand the difference between "profit" and "cash flow". He takes his "profits" every month, leaving almost nothing to run the business with. He budgets for a company that routinely bills $30K a month on a "day-to-day, sometimes week-to-week" basis. He can't believe that you would save money you made in July to pay bills in December. He is running this business like a crazy person.

If he needs more money, he arranges to lease the tools and hire another person, having NO consideration for something called "debt-to-income ratio".

NO WONDER he can't afford to hire me on a part-time basis.

This is what you get when you start a business without a business plan.

This is what I get when I don't listen to the man who says "You're too professional to work for me."

I Disabled My Highly Personal Facebook Profile

My "professional" profile is still up, and it's so boring that I am not interested in being on it. So, the bathroom is now super clean.

I disabled my personal profile for a few reasons:

  1. The US Government shutdown. Not my country, yet I was fighting really hard to not get sucked into the negativity and refuting misinformation. Also finding out that my friends are friends of/related to hateful sociopaths who would rather die or go bankrupt than buy health insurance "from the government" was really upsetting. I can't just ignore that shit if I see it. So it was time to "shut the whole thing down".
  2. Clicky games. Jumpin' Jeebus on a pogo stick, the clicky games. And I don't even "farm" (anymore).
  3. I'm trying to make some personal changes in my life that go with the professional changes I will be making next week. I have to learn to be more mindful of the way the people in my life use social media, and I have to learn to temper my speech by discerning whether or not what I am about to say will be important or useful to anyone else but me.
  4. Perspective. I just need to get some.Or something. I don't know. Shutting down my personal Facebook just seemed like a good idea at the time that I had it.
So I'm hanging out on Twitter a bit more ( @LKid ) especially now that hockey season has started.
If you know my legal name, you can find my boring, professional profile on Facebook.

Yesterday I saw this posted:

I realized that it had been days, but not quite a week, since I was reminded that I have MS.

I've just really gotten use to having no feeling in my fingers and toes, and that thing with my voice has stopped. I even remember telling the nurse at the urgent care last week when I went to have my sinuses checked out that I had MS, and not feeling sad, or panicked, or much of anything about it.

It was like I told them that I have hazel eyes or my favourite colour is red. It is now just one of those things about me.

Weird, huh?
