dark days

Bunyip is going into the vets tonight to get her nose fixed up. By fixed up, I mean removed. It's all a bit sad.

And by sad, I mean sad for matcha_pocky and Jye who are going to have to put up with BAWLING tonight. Let me put this all into perspective for you. Earlier on in the year, Bunyip needed to make an urgent trip to the vet for a relatively minor complaint.

I was absolutely inconsolable because my cat was constipated.

Think about that for a moment.

In any case, work sucks. I was chewed out by one supervisor yesterday for not doing enough work. Quite frankly, though, I don't understand how anyone is expected to work in a field where there are absolutely no incentives. The pay is shit, the hours are long, there is little job satisfaction, most people who work here only do so until they find another soul-destroying job to go into at other institutions, and politics gets in the way of any real SCIENCE that could be going on.

Bitter much? You bet. I've fucking had it. If anybody gets on my case today, I'm going to be more than half tempted to unenroll. No one should have to put up with the shit they expect us to. Yeah, I'll be the first to admit I havn't done as much work as I should have thus far, but that is a little beside the point. Even if I was working super hard, it would still be shit.

*hugs* I hope kitty is alright. And I hope you're alright as well.

And I promise not to make the joke about "How does she smell?"

I hope your cat gets better and adjusts quickly.
