notes from the office #40

8:10a i want to set up a sewing station at home. i wish i had more time. like i don't have a choice but to work full time, so there's that. 

8:33a I NEED TO FINISH MY VEST ITS BEEN A WIP FOR FUCKING YEARS

8:39a: i have so many good memories wound up in blind guardian's music. like i've seen them... 

2006
twice in 2010 (dallas then houston)
and then seeing them 2 years in a row (2015/2016) was fucking amazing

like that never happens and jfc i hope our current administration doesn't fuck up the entire world and prevent them coming back around for another tour with their next album. 

sail on till you reach the promised land
we all wait for a new tomorrow
we'll bring a new age
along with the final wave
the final wave
we will rise

9:24a omg the people outside my office are talking about coddled children

the boomers got coddled as fuck and they don't even realize it

plz tell me about how you pulled yourself up by your bootstraps again you privileged fucks, your parents fucking lived through the great depression and anyone coming out of THAT will want to coddle and care for their children as best as they can so that never fucking happens again. set them up for success and success for subsequent generations. but what the fuck did you do? you went and fucking made ANOTHER ONE in the form of the goddamn recession. stop coddling? stop actively trying to screw everyone around you for another penny. you fucks.

9:35a maybe lets turn the blind guardian back on and ignore this shit

9:56a hey yall, if you're going to business in a state other than your home state please touch base with someone in that state to make sure you're following their laws. you fucks.

10:00a

GIVE US SHELTER FROM THE STORM
GIVE US HOPE
GIVE US SHELTER FROM THE STORM
GIVE US HOOOOPE

CURSE THE WIND
A STORM FROM THE NORTH
COMES TO DIVIDE US
WILL DENY US
TO BREAK YOUR KING

i fucking love this song

11:51a yep, made the mistake of trying to eat and listen to the black farm again.

11:57a every time i see this one little apartment complex pop up on my map i kinda wish i'd had a chance to live there. i doubt it will be in my price range after the new owners are done with it. it's a beautiful little spot like 200' from the creek. quiet area. maybe i'm just bitter i can't afford anything. yeah, i'm just bitter. it's not like i don't work. i work fucking hard. i spend most of my time at work. i wish i could spend more time at home or going somewhere nice. nice is for rich people. not normal people.

is living by the water really such a luxury? 

2:15p i don't think boomers understand that their ribbing is fuckin garbage. "well sheeeee couldn't do /her/ job and had to mooooooooove and made the department hire someone neeeeeeeeew"

no, bitch.

i moved out of the bullpen 2 fucking years ago to work on the maps full time. i had to take our entire fucking GIS and modernize it *while the support staff i needed was still working at ESRI*. the woman that helped me migrate our annotations retired literally a month after we wrapped that part of the migration. that's how old the system we were using was and fuckin absolutely necessary because i could NOT figure out the problem on my own. there was no documentation for what i was doing and the only solution was sitting in a 12 year old casefile on esri's side. 

after that i had to figure out a workflow that met for our needs. that took months of testing. then i had to adapt the old publishing workflow to one that meshed with the new GIS. more months. turned into a year. then my coworker wanted to retire. i had a year to learn the ins-and-outs of his job so i could take the reins. 

there is no one on this planet that could do all that and handle walk-ins that have deed questions. that will pull up a chair next to you, and jab their fingers INTO your monitor saying their NEEEIGHBOR IS A FEEEELLOONNN AND SELLING DDDRRRRUUUUGGGGSSS okay why are you here and not calling the police? or the person that walks around your desk specifically to shove their crotch in your face? or the pervs that won't stop calling and breathing heavy into the phone? or the people that will draw their question out into a 2 hour racist rant about how much they hate their slant-eye/wetback (THE GUY SAID THAT. HE SAID THAT. I DONT KNOW HIS EX WIFE BUT HE USED THOSE TWO SLURS IN CONJUNCTION.) ex and she stole his land and blah blah blah blah

i didn't move because i wimped out. i moved because my supervisor and coworker decided together it was the best possible way i could work on the maps. i had no say in the fucking matter. i was gritting my teeth every single day in the bullpen, trying to get this shit running. i had no say in the matter.

no one could do this job with constant interruption, not without making a shitload of mistakes. we can't make mistakes.
