    My department dropped from 3 to 1 and it's my one year anniversary, so I'm asking my boss to triple my salary.

    Never hurts to ask, right?

    Good luck!

    My one year's anniversary in this job (new field, new environment) is in 4 days.

    My boss just gave her notice. So, in 17 days, I will be the boss.

    Gulp.

    This past Friday, I was playing basketball with the kids at work. Chased after a rebound, lost my footing, and face planted on the asphalt court. I also broke my hand.

    They've been excellent about letting me process the injury ("if you're sad, then let yourself be sad"), have pulled me back to desk duty/documentation, and have been excellent about walking me through all necessary paperwork.

    Ah, yeah, most companies have no interest in obsolete equipment. Tough break on Moore's Law.

    My internship is case management for autistic kids.

    ​​​​​​Most mothers and families will work with us and wait for us to advocate for their child.

    This one mother asked us to see if they could help her kid get into special needs classes, and I'm like "okay, cool." Super tells me to call the school and ask about the process for special needs education.

    I call the school. School tells me "the mother pulled pulled him out and there's nothing more they can do."

    The supervisor and I just look at each other and sigh deeply.

    If I need to pace, I've been told to do a security check.

    If I need to calm myself down, I get to journal.

    And if you mention feeling sad or anxious, they will check in with you so they can talk you through it. At my last job, I was told to bottle it up until it was time to go home.
    One of my latest groups I ran at the hospital featured Last Week Tonight’s “Mental Health” episode. Before I played the clip, I asked the kids what kind of feedback they’d heard when first seeking help for their mental health issues. The first girl I called upon answered “Basically being told ‘suck it up, buttercup.’” You know this country’s mental health care system is fucked up when the people who work in it actually use “Suck it up, buttercup”, as their first response to a mental health issue.

    I also understand that kid is acting from a place of deep hurt and trauma.
    So's the adult.

    I didn't say it was our fault we're creeps, just the fact of.

    Like the Poors, I have sympathy, recognize it isn't their fault, and support policies that will give them the opportunity for a fulfilling life after the prison of capitalism. But I don't want to hang out with them.
