The Things I Don't Do.
-Next

Many of us have known a co-worker who’s left the office at a certain time each week to attend to a “personal matter” or another. If this was suspected to be for a therapy session, it was sometimes discussed in hushed tones. This attests to the shame surrounding mental illness in the tech workplace. The pressure to be “professional” at all times, to stick to prescribed roles, or risk being underutilized or even unemployed, is extremely stressful for everyone. But if you are in a support role dealing with anxiety or depression, you may not be able to take off for therapy, or have adequate income or mental health coverage to do it. It can feel almost impossible to thrive in your job. The unbalanced medical treatment and double standards about mental illness are further hurdles to overcome.

Three forms of terrestrial mammal locomotion:

PLANTIGRADE: “sole walking”—animals walk by “planting” the full soles of their feet on the ground

DIGITIGRADE: “finger/toe walking”—animals walk with all or most of the length of their toes (“digits”), but not the full soles of their feet

UNGULIGRADE: “hoof walking”—animals walk on only their nails, usually hooves (as in “ungulates”)

Saw a Green Tree Python at Critter Cabana yesterday.

He was not amused.

Poor baby… I can’t think of many snakes who would be happy if they were dehydrated, covered in burns and stuck shed either.

Is there a way you can report them for this? Or talk to a supervisor about getting it the care it needs?

the poor baby looks so sad.

people say lmao a lot nowadays but no one says rofl anymore and its weird cause back in the day rofl and lmao used to be interchangeable and if you were a risktaker youd combine them into roflmao but now everyones dropped rofl. its probably for the best but i cant help but be nostalgic.

You mean the generation that paid three times as much for college to enter a job market with triple the unemployment isn’t interested in purchasing the assets of the generation who just blew an enormous housing bubble and kept it from popping through quantitative easing and out-and-out federal support? Curious.

You like mcr, panic at the disco, choppy hair cuts, fall out boy and black clothing. You can’t stop smudging your eyeliner, you can’t stay out of hot topic, and you don’t know the top 20 charts. Face it, you’re never gonna leave 2005.

I don’t wanna leave 2005. i just wanna
