Slipped on some ice in the parking lot behind work... wound up losing a ring in the process.

Had an MRI scan on my ankle today. Wasn't brutal, but my ankle was stiff afterwards. Also think I'm getting another cold.

Like...a ring that you wear on your finger? Why was it loose enough to fall off?

Indeed, a ring that I wear on a finger. Why was it loose? Weight loss, I suppose.

 

Today's B.S. going on right now? It's currently -22 F outside right now. Thank Jeebus work has been cancelled for the day, possibly tomorrow as well if it the cold continues.

My Samsung S6 died on Monday, all it shows is "Samsung S6" - it doesn't turn off either. I ran the battery down, and then plugged it in, but still the same old screen. I've tried every combination of button holding and pressing - but nothing.

 

You don't realize how much you need a smartphone, until yours is out of action.

Pretty sure I'm getting fired. Got left a voicemail and email to call them back. Thought I was in the clear since most seasonal people got let go a month ago. My buddy called back and said they're letting even more people go. Not really surprised considering how slow it's been after the holidays. I don't really wanna call back, but I also don't wanna show up on Monday and probably get fired in person. Don't know what to do lol

My advice would be to at least go - because if they do let you go, then if you're on good terms with them it enhances your chance of them giving a favourable reference. Plus generally I find it's not worth the aggravation to go to war with them.

It's harder in person for them aswell. Both things, depending on your attitude, will leave an impact. Put an face on that impression and go there on Monday

Yeah, it's looks like I'm going to have to go on Monday. I got anxious and actually called yesterday and today between the times they said to, but they've yet to pick up. I guess if they're in such a hurry to get rid of me, they would've called again by now? Idk. If I end up staying, I'm looking at spending about $15 a day on Uber to get there with my friend gone now. That'll be half my paycheck every week. I don't think I win either way this ends up going.

Dunno where you work, but I'd say talk to them. In the meanwhile, you can always try Adecco and see if they'll help you find a job. They've done good for me. Despite what the others say though, I don't think it'll be that hard for them to let you go, businesses usually don't give a shit unless you're close to whoever's gonna let you go.

Alright so, I've been dealing with my own issues and depression for about 3-ish years now. All of these are feelings of loneliness, self-image issues, and just not believing in myself in anything, even sometimes the things that I love. Most of this stems off of a toxic relationship I had at the same time I started feeling that way. To sum it all up, I stayed in it because I wanted to make it work and because it was my first relationship, but the girl and I were way too incompatible and I just didn't feel a sort of connection to her. She was the one who took my virginity, etc. but that's not really what got me, I felt used for sex cause that's literally all we did. I never really felt happy with this person, and when I got out of it I was happy, but I was so upset. 
 
I started having depressive thoughts later, and didn't believe I could actually be with anyone else or that I'd never get in a relationship where I actually felt a deep connection to someone. Like, hooking up is fine, but I still felt that way. I hooked up with another person about a few months after all of that shit ended, and after I got ghosted, I took a spiral down and my feelings of loneliness increased. 
 
 
So 3 years later, I go to MAGFest and meet up with a friend of mine cause she wanted me to buy her alcohol at the time since she wasn't 21 at the time. I do that, meet up with her and I meet a ton of her friends in her hotel room. There was one in particular that I found real cute and stuff, but I was like "Nah dude, you couldn't get with that" to myself. So I'm trying to get to know people (cause I want con friends, etc.) and I noticed my homegirl got pulled aside by the one girl I'm talking about.
 
We're all having small talk, etc. and that person starts blatantly hitting on me and I'm like "Woah :blush: " but since I'm shy as hell, I don't really do anything with it. We leave to go party and etc. so while we're waiting and stuff in a hallway, my homegirl pulls me aside and was like "Dude, she's been eyeballing you and shit all day, go talk to her." Let's just say I was too shy to do that and I can only talk to girls while I'm kinda drunk. I tell myself that I'll try again tomorrow, etc. repeatedly but I could never find that girl or only ran into her a few times after that. So I'm like... "Shit I should've shot my shot" and just shake my head at myself.
 
So the con ends and a day or 2 after it, I'm about to get off work and I had a few missed calls and texts from my homegirl. I look at them and she's like "Where the *Censored* are you? This girl is dead ass about to be in town cause she's visiting me, you better come shoot your shot" and I'm like nervous and not prepared. So I respond that I'll go with her, and she basically wingwomans for me to the girl, and it was almost like a double date at dinner cause my homegirl brought her BF with her. So myself and the girl go to the car so she can get some bags and stuff and she was like "Well I wish I got to talk to you at MAG because I think you're really cute and wanna get to know you" and shit.
 
So I got her number and on the way home she starts texting me and shit, asking if I wanted to smash. I said yeah so they drive us to my house and I turned on some anime and we smashed. Also, originally, she was supposed to only stay for a day, but while we were texting in the car I was being playful and said like "Well if you stayed I'd make you dinner" and all that stuff, but she agreed to purposely miss her bus home to stay a little more with me. 
 
So that happens, and things are happening SO fast. Like, feelings and emotions wise. She actually treated me so much better than my ex the couple of days we'd been hanging out and having sex, letting out both of our vulnerable sides and etc. Come time for her to leave, I ask her out and we date briefly. She comes back after leaving and she isn't really letting me get closer to her, etc. and I'm not sure why. So we broke it off early (she asked) because she said that she had so much shit going on in her life that she isn't ready for a relationship right now. We both also agreed we took things way too fast but still wanted to be friends.
 
We're still friends, but I learn more about all the shit going on in her life and her baggage: sexual assault trauma and a lot of other mental health issues. She still visits sometimes and we talk, but man... I actually have legit feelings for the girl and I'm like... :(
 
 
I know that she has to help herself get past her trauma and etc, and I told her I'd be there for her when she needed it. But man... everything feels like it was terrible timing. I know I shouldn't have asked her out after a few days, but my emotions were pretty high and so were her's, and I acted on them. I learned a lesson there, but I still can't help but feel alone and still wanting to be there with her.. 
 
I don't wanna sit here and wait for her, cause I'm just not gonna let these feelings and my loneliness eat away at me. I think there's room for stuff to happen in the future, but I'm just... not really sure what I need to do at this point. We're friends, yeah, but I still have these feelings and I don't wanna get too attached to her, etc. There's just so much shit going on in my head right now that I need to help get myself together and still remain close to the girl...

That's alot to take in. I've been told countless times to take care of me first. I believe that what you have to do. If the feeling of loniness for you simply comes down to "I wanna wait for her but..." and you can knock the feeling by just living your life, dating or whatever it is that you do, do it. Don't ignore your feelings for her but don't wait for her either. That isn't fair to you. There's nothing wrong with being hopeful but, if you're meant to be, it'll happen. If not, maybe you'll run into somebody who makes you v feel the same or better. Just be the best friend to her that you can and wherever life takes you, roll with it

I agree, take care of yourself first. Neither of you will be happy in a relationship if you're not happy or at the right place of mind individually. Be a friend to her, but not at the expense of your mental health.

The only thing I cared about with the Superbowl was Sweet Victory, and they didn't deliver with it.

Yeah, I know.. mentally I know I have to, but I just can't start the spark to take care of myself in my heart. As far as my feelings go, they could still be there later but right now, I really feel for her. But waiting on her to get better.. who knows how long that will take and if we both feel the same later on? I hope to continue to be friends with her, but I can't help but wonder if we could actually end up together in a serious relationship.

It's not really her that's giving me these issues, it's my past and myself. Honestly, she treated me better than my ex and I felt a lot more compatible and connected with her.. it really made me happy. It's not even the sex, it's just how we connected outside of it. I will still feel the same way about myself as I did before, but her... I worry about her's. Her trauma is so serious and she's at the lowest point of it. I can't really do anything to help her but be there for her, and I worry I'm not gonna be able to get close with her due to how guarded she is right now.

Is she going to therapy or talking someone she trusts about her feelings and stuff? The best you can do is be there for her, as mentioned, but while taking care of yourself too.

I don't know. I do know she's really close with her ex-boyfriend, though. They're soulmates, as she describes it. Also, she has a close relationship with her mother. I don't know if they know about her trauma or not though. They're aware of me due to how fast we went, but other than that.. don't know.

Soulmates? Yikes man, I'd probably back off if they're still close with each other, unless you have immense trust and know she won't do anything you aren't comfortable with around/with him.
