Are you exaggerating or serious? 10 ft??
No I'm super exaggerating, according to the stats on the weather forecast website it was only 2 feet in 2 days. It looked like more though. However once the snow truck has passed to clean the street, you better hope you remember where you parked your car, because all the snow and ice that was in the street is now covering it o_O

I've only ever seen snow once, on a trip to New Zealand. I've always wondered what it'd be like to experience a white Xmas..

Being a published writer is an interesting thing when you're also an introvert and have social anxiety. The writing process itself appeals to me because it's done in peaceful solitude (that's the only way I can concentrate and be creative). But once you go public with your works, it requires more interaction with the (GASP!) public than anticipated. The book signings, the meeting with people within the marketing/selling chain and the exuberant friends who like to announce that I'm a writer in front of crowds. Last but not least, the fact that my book is open to public feedback on places such as Amazon and Goodreads. Good grief! And here I thought all I had to do was write, submit to my publisher and step back out of the picture.

I have a 3-month evaluation coming up at work soon. Possibly this week. They didn't tell me when it was going to happen, just that it was happening soon. I'm not looking forward to it. I know I have been making a lot of mistakes lately, but to no fault of my own. I haven't felt good and something isn't right. I've told them this, they've been treating me nicer, but I still don't have answers. A part of me hates the added sympathy. You couldn't treat me respectfully in the first place, and now that I tell you something's wrong and I've been seeing a dr regularly to figure it out, now you want to be nice? Ugh. :rolleyes:

On another hand, what if they ask me my opinion? What if they ask me about how I feel about this job? Do I bring up the fact that I hate this job and I hate the way my boss treats people and runs this business? How I spent nearly 5 years at college just to stand at a desk and push papers all day while getting orders barked at me? Or do I play stupid and lie and say I'm appreciating the work experience and think it's great? Do I bring up the fact that I'm so unhappy that I already applied for another job, but haven't heard anything back yet? :unsure:

I'm so jealous that you're a writer. The dream of a lot of introverts. Congratulations for achieving it (y)
 
Why am I such a magnet to getting treated like shit by other people? Is it because I'm small and quiet? Easy to walk over? Does the blonde hair give people the stupidly false interpretation that I'm a complete moron? What am I doing (or not doing?) that makes people treat me so freaking horribly?
Being quiet is my guess.

I'm a 200-pound guy and you'd be surprised how often people try it with me.

Most people will take advantage of shyness if they can.

It sucks that we have to deal with this well into adulthood but it seems as if people are attracted to those who don't fight back. My concern is that when I finally do, my reaction is usually over the top and the outcome will be worse than if I'd just kept quiet.
 
It's starting to feel like spring already and I'm hoping it stays that way. Every winter is becoming more and more of a struggle to get through it seems like.

I wish I was a bear and could just hibernate through the whole thing. The days of sledding and school vacations are behind me. Now all I get is a little phase of heightened depression. Hibernating would be better.

We are opposites as far as that goes.. I wish I could hibernate through Summer here in Australia.. well, not all of it. Just any temp over 30 would be good :LOL:. It's coming into Autumn here. One of my favorite times of year! :D
