developers: man it really seems like software has been going downhill for the last 15 years

developers: it just feels like there is no end to the bullshit
me: CAPITALIST INVESTMENT INCENTIVIZES GRIFTING OVER ACTUAL RESEARCH AND INNOVATION
developers: why is everything so buggy and resource intensive
me: CAPITALISM INCENTIVIZES MARKETING-FRIENDLY FEATURE CHURN OVER USABILITY
i do not want to go to therapy today. i want to draw and space out and clear my head
i guess she desperately wanted to think i was good at something. i came out of uni with not the best portfolio or applicable skills. i just didn't know how to apply them properly.
she really fixated on this and would constantly send me shitty sales jobs. clerk at a verizon store! mall kiosk jockey! some that were 100% commission based. i am not a sales person. millennials hate sales people. i really resented her sending all of those to me.
i grew up around conservatives and i can tell you they will constantly and always get exactly what they want, look around at how much worse everything got while they were getting it, and be unable to figure out what the problem is

i had my rebellious streak i guess but i knew how to pick fights better than her.
anyway thanks for listening to my early teen memories. it's diary time here on ol' mastadon
bitchy i know. also inconsequential. she wasn't wrong but i guess i had a little resentment from being 'the nerd friend' she could take to the movies without being under her parents thumb to meet up with boys since they thought i wouldn't let her do stuff like that.
i'd honestly forgotten about this event until today, and that her mom was a cop. i kind of lost touch with the friend in high school because she was boy crazy and i was more academically inclined. she called me immature once and i just accepted it because i didn't want to tell her i didn't need attention from men to feel good about myself lmao.
