      There will come a time when someone makes you feel bad. There will come a time when a person is not who you once thought they were.

      Have patience.

      This world, the one we all share, has a way of righting itself. It does not require your intervention to correct the way in which you were wronged. Take care of yourself, show others how you deserve to be treated, and the rest will happen on its own.

      Life, as it does, repays people in the most clever ways. It can set events into motion that are far worse than you could have thought of on your own. It isn't necessary for you to interfere since a hurtful person will always find a way to be unhappy all on their own. They are naturally inclined to somehow end up exactly as unhappy as they should be.

      Meanwhile, the strongest and most meaningful affection is the kind that you learn to bestow upon your own self once you have learned to believe you are worthy of such things. Take the time to like yourself if you ever expect anyone else to do the same. Understand that it is imperative for you to disagree with someone who says you are not good enough. That you must never allow yourself to fall victim to someone who would say someone else is better than you. There is never a time when you deserve to feel like you belong in second place.

      So wait. Wait as long as it takes. It will happen sometimes in a matter of years and sometimes in a matter of several days, but it will happen. Your time will come when you cannot help but smile because so many things are going so well for you. Then, because life has a particularly devious sense of humor, you will be given an accidental glimpse of the aftermath. You will see them at their lowest point, and then the strangest thing will happen...

      ...you will feel nothing.

      Not the satisfaction that you thought you would feel. Not vindication, not superiority, and not pity. Nothing at all. How can you feel anything for someone who is no longer anything to you? They will no longer have the power to make you feel anything. They no longer have the privilege of mattering at all.

      That is how the world rights itself. It turns you into someone who matters and turns them into someone who does not.

      Still waiting.

      The good news is that word is getting around that she has received my resume and other people in her department as well as surrounding departments are encouraging her to pick me.

      In other yet still related news, my current supervisors seem to have finally understood my pleas for more work to do. In addition to my cardboard box project, I was urgently asked to complete a report (translation: open this drawer and count what's inside), as well as suddenly being appointed Point-of -Contact for the US/Ecuador country-of-processing (don't worry about what that means) cross-over (translation: every day we will send you an Excel spreadsheet of ID #s to investigate and make the necessary changes so the people at the newly-opened Ecuador office will be able to make subsequent changes).

      Long story short, be careful what you ask for. There is always yet another crappy project looming on the horizon to keep you busy.

      Just have to keep reminding myself that this will all look great on my next performance review...

      Fearing my growing presence by means of my cardboard box empire, my supervisor has asked me to return my completed cardboard boxes to the storage room.

      Sigh...

      ...all I wanted was my own tyrannical dictatorship over the department...

      ...is that really too much to ask for?

      So my potential new supervisor will potentially let me know about my potential transfer by Friday.

    • October can bite me

      10 years ago

      LytishRed

      October - noun - month that is officially Kat's bad luck month
      October - adjective - horrible; uses include, "Wow, that sucks, I mean that is just so October!"

      Let me quickly recap a few things that have happened in various Octobers...

      -My first of many shoulder injuries (haven't been the same ever since)
      -Broke up with my first boyfriend (no worries, I was 13)
      -Was kidnapped (long story)
      -3 car accidents (none my fault)
      -Lost a job (not my fault, store closed)
      -Broke 2 toes (not at the same time, different Octobers)
      -Had to tell my best friend to go fuck herself (never saw her again... not purposely anyway)
      -My cat died (part of the reason why I won't have pets)
      -Many embarrassing Halloweens (some more humiliating than others)
      -Broke a very special snow globe (sad that it broke, the clean-up was even worse)
      -Met my step-mom (the latest one anyway)
      -My mom and step-dad announced their divorce (in retrospect, they're better-off)
      -Met and subsequently dismissed many notably fake friends (I'll spare you the drama)

      And lately...
      -Logan almost died (horrible story, I don't want to talk about it, he's ok now)
      -Fallout from the previous item (again, don't want to talk about it)
      -Had to lead a bus tour where 50 distributors made me look incompetent all around my building (note to self: stop volunteering for things)
      -Was informed by my boss that although my work productivity is phenomenal she doesn't really care because my error rate is above 3% (one typo on any of the 25 input fields per document makes the entire document count as an error; I input an average of 150 documents before noon each day; my own fault but the breakdown still sucks)
      -Lost my parking stub for the weekend so I probably won't get reimbursed for it (only $12 but still...)
      -Was yelled at repeatedly by an in-law for something that wasn't my fault (Alzheimer's, yo)

      There's more but this all sounds petty so I'll stop... the rest gets a bit more personal/emotional... if it was just one of these items then I wouldn't complain so much but it's the combination of it all... and always in October...

      18 more days of this crap and in all these years I have yet to find a large enough rock to hide under.

      The last day of September is always a sad day for me.

      Don't know who else is coming. I know PGM35 is not, and Squirrel still hasn't found out yet if he could. I know he didn't make the cut for the ticket allotment.

      I fly into Santa Anna on wednesday, the 6th. Get there around 6 p.m. I leave on the 9th. The game, of course is on the 7th.

      Yes, that would be grand if possible to meet the great stormtrooper known asDeltaVenus, a.k.a. LytishRed. Have to discuss with my friends what their itineraries will be like so that a rendezvous could possibly be worked out.

      Say, what happened to DerekD? I know he was a big Horns fan. It would be good to meet up with him as well.

      Either way, I'm stoked that I'm going. Once in a lifetime chance. Of course, this is now a second time in 5 years that we've had this once in lifetime event. First one, I didn't make it. Although, I had a great chance to, .... I just passed on it.

      Anyway, I'll let you know of more concrete plans as they develop.

      Hook 'Em!

      It's confirmed. We made the cut. Me and my buddies are going to the Rose Bowl a.k.a., National Championship.

      Keep on the eye for us, about 5 p.m., your time, PST, on Saturday, and look for us Horns.

      It's just 6 more days until kickoff, till the most heavenly time on earth. The start of college football season.

      Man, ol man, how I wish you were a Texas gal. You have all the tools necessary to be the poster child for a Texas-ex.

      You're smart, witty, attractive, kick-ass, and most of all, you don't take shit, regardless of who / whom it is coming from.

      I look forward to conversing anti OU, or anti eATMe verses with you anyday. (HaHa!!!)

      Yes, they are an 'absolute' requirement. They are part of the uniform ensemble, that gives them a 'distinct' and 'unique' appearance on the college football landscape.

    • rr24

      9 years ago

      The Texas Pom Squad, or officially known as 'Texas Pom', has been around for about 30 years. They are the football teams dance squad. In 2003, Texas Pom underwent a uniform transformation, going from the standard usual cheerleader skirt uniform, much akin to those worn by the USC song girls, and instead taking on a more of a southwest flavor in their uniform ensemble. Namely, ...... wearing of the chaps.

      Here are a few pictorial tidbits of what you could become.

      Here, you see one Texas cheer member, and two Pom Squad members right before the 2006 Texas-OU game held at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.

      CheerPomAmyCaitlinKateGlover.jpg


      Texas Pom Squad members are noted for their youthful beauty. The view is equally as beautiful from behind as well. Here are two glaring examples, the first from Texas-OU in 2007, and the second from Texas-OU in 2006.

      PomatOU20073.jpg
      PomatOU20068.jpg


      Texas Pom, is required to do basketball games as well, but in the typical basketball game dance squad attire. However, every once in a while they do wear the chaps at basketball games. Here they are at one game from 2007.

      PomatB-Ballgame.jpg

      Our cheer squad, both orange(women not the men) and white squads, have some decent talent, as evidenced by Lauren below, from a game in Austin in 2007.

      CheerLauren.jpg


      However, no cheer squad member, can compete with my girlfriend, Lacey.

      Here, Lacey is posing for the Sports Illustrated camera guy, in which she was the SI cheerleader of the week back in football season 2008. She is telling the camera guy, that "my man, rr24, is the shiznizzle!"

      YP-Lacey-Texas_05_YP_BO_8221.jpg


      Probably the main reason I like Lacey so much, is because she likes to play 'touch' football.

      YP-Lacey-Texas_10_YPYPM30145.jpg


      Here, my gal, is leading the ever so famous on campus cheer, ''hey, hey, rr24 he's our man, ... if he can't do it, no one can!"

      YP-Lacey-Texas_20_YP_BO_8018.jpg


      So, you see, if you decide on a career change, I feel you would be aptly qualified to hold down a position with our world famous Texas Pom Squad. Should you decide to move to Texas and take one of these glam positions, I may be able to help out with the selection committee. After all, I am connected.wink.gif
