Injection, butt story 

I don't know if it's because the nurse today told me exactly when he was going to start the injection, or because I was trying to flex my legs and abs to force my butt to relax, but I didn't have problems with my muscles twitching at the smallest contact or air movement today :blobcat:

The next half an hour of biking to work though…

‘Dead white man’s clothes’: The dirty secret behind the world’s fashion addiction

For decades, the West's unwanted fashion has made its way to used-clothing markets in Africa. Now it's fuelling an environmental catastrophe.

I am so tired I biked so muuuch :blobugh:

Twitter money scam 

Apparently the latest thing is to build bots that:
- watch for people asking, "what's your paypal / venmo / etc"
- clone their account (identical avatar, identical display name, slight variation on account name)
- post their own whatever payment method
- block the OP so they don't see the scammerbot's reply

(image in linked tweet is an example in action)

Those are my last weeks working in the lab for my phd, so I'm starting it again! My hands are not used to this anymore, I have a terrible handwriting :blobcatgiggle:

I started this thing when I was 9, when for a whole week I write down every single thing I do, like a very detailed diary.
It's quite cool to read again! I did it a couple of times since and it's so interesting to have those traces of how exactly was my life at those periods. I like reading autobiographies so of course I like mine too.

The last one is from 2010, when I was still in high school. I was scribbling notes on paper scraps all day and writing it down in proper french in the evening.

German unemployement adventures 

They mentioned during the call that them accessing my username would change my password, and yeah, after an hour I can't log into the Arbeitsagentur website anymore :sweat_smile_ms:

Last time them changing my data to my legal name activated the account before I received the activation letter so my conclusion is that their website is a joke.

But they said I should receive a new password and an explanatory brochure within an week, so let's see :shrug_r2:

And they explained that I need to register on the jobböerse website, because they see I don't have an account.
That's the website where I uploaded my documents because they linked to it in their email, through?

But they said there are two jobbörse accounts, one to find a job and one to get unemployment benefits, and I'm very confused but I couldn't formulate my confusion so I just said "ja" and "ok" :flan_shrug:

They asked what they could do for me and I was like "I don't know? I was asked to get an appointment so you tell me what to do?"

I was only understanding half because I'm not really familiar with bureaucratic german, I think they said I need to go there personally and the call was optional, if I need advice :flan_shrug:

I'm waiting for the phone call of the unemployment agency and I don't know what they will ask me or in which language so I'm very stressed :ms_grimace:

Recently horrifying a friend with this fact reminded me that:
I shower with my eBook reader sitting on the shower shelves with the soap and and nobody can stop me.

(This toot brought to you by the fact that I need to go wash my hair, finished my book yesterday night, and I don't know what to read now.)

Complaining about the weather being good 

Looking forward to be writing my thesis on a laptop sitting on the ground outside any day it stops raining.

Complaining about the weather being good 

There was some sun today so it makes me even more annoyed that I spent the whole day inside the lab failing to get results.

I don't understand why I'm so annoyed! I even hanged behind a sunny window for 10 whole minutes, so that probably doubled the amount of sunlight I saw in the last weeks. But now I want more sunlight, and the sun is set already :flan_shrug:

I guess I'm mostly frustrated about my experiments. But I also want sunlight :blobugh:

Social anxiety, was that actually an emotional flashback? 

My therapist found that super interesting but now I'm feeling that way again :chick_cry_happy:

Social anxiety, was that actually an emotional flashback? 

I wonder how much of my feeling of walking on eggshells and my fear of him and the sudden feeling of rejection I got as soon as he was not 100% nice and caring with me, is due to the fast than he's a man the same age as my dad was last time I spent more than a few days in his presence.

Actually now that I think about it, I feel this way about all post-docs the same age at work too :oh_no:

Social anxiety 

He explained it's not for people who work in addition of being student, so I told him that I'll be eligible in December, and he said we'll talk then. And I guess it went fine? But I can't shake the feeling that I did horribly wrong, failed this communication, and now he's probably thinking less of me for having asked. Like I tried to cheat him while his place doesn't have much money to spare either.

Social anxiety 

So it took me days to be brave enough to send my student id (now that it has the correct name) to the manager of my sports place since he once mentioned a discount for students, and he sent an audio message back which instantly made me panic, as in "aaahh he's probably refusing, it was super rude of me to ask, why did I think I was allowed to ask?".
