I think the problem is that you are related. You aren't your father in this case. You are the land lord, it's your property. You have a right to maintain the property how you see fit. As her land lord, tell her she needs to make changes or she has to find other living arrangements. You've been lenient and accommodating but now she has to step up.

The way I deal with my sisters is to not live with them O.o their messy habits (and their kid's messy habits) would drive me up the wall.

I agree with Pwolf on this one.

I'm with Pwolf on this one.

Leaving the doors open is a security risk. Not taking care of the dog is neglect. Dirty dishes can be a health issue. Leaving the curling iron plugged in is a fire hazard, and should be pointed out as her biggest offense, since that technically puts everyone in the house in danger. She needs to know that most landlords won't tolerate that kind of crap, and she shouldn't take advantage of your leniency just because you're family. Put it to her bluntly and don't sugarcoat anything. It's grow up or move out time.

That's putting your entire property and belongings in danger. The fire hazard alone is enough to put an entire area in danger if left out of control. D:

I'm agree with Pwolf.

A cousin of mine just died of an overdose. I don't know the details. We hadn't spoken in a while, but when we last spoke, I wasn't under the impression he was using.

Could people stop dying on me, please? That'd be great, thanks.

At my job, if you work a 7-hour shift you absolutely MUST clock out for a lunch. If you don't, you need to leave before you go over seven hours. All of the managers are sticklers about this, it's never even in question. Now, when you work a closing shift, you don't know what time you're going to get out. It could be very busy and you'd need to stay a few extra hours. I get scheduled for a lot of six-hour closing shifts, so I always ask the manager if they want me to take a lunch or not.

Last night was the same thing, I asked the manager and she told me not to clock out, that we'd be out relatively early. It was busier than she thought, when I got to seven hours, she told me to just go clock out, not a big deal, it happens all the time. When I went upstairs, another manager claimed that I "tricked" her about a previous shift from two weeks ago, claiming that I lied about what time I started in order to get out early when everyone else had to stay and continue working. I argued about it for a bit, she wouldn't let it go, I just walked away from her and went home.

Today I called the office admin, she looked up what I worked that day, I'd actually gone over the 7 hours by a minute. So I talked to the HR manager, best he could say was "Uh....I guess I'll talk to her. It was hectic last night because of call-offs, so she was probably just stressed."


Right, because it's busy, she's stressed, and when I'm just doing what I'm told, I should get harassed.

Been in a weird state of loneliness/depressed. I think I mentioned this earlier but it's sorta hit me again. I don't even really know how to shake out of it at the moment.

Sucks man :|
I find the best thing I can do to get rid of it is to go out and do something, even if it is just walking or checking out somewhere I've never been. It never stays with me very long, a few days at the most.

I tend to feel that way a lot and a good walk around my block seems to help my mood quite a bit.

Comparing transfer requirements for other schools with my recent academic history is bumming me the fuck out. I should've gotten out of this garbage a long time ago.

My favorite chair broke yesterday. I noticed it after I had returned home. Who BROKE IT?!

RIP Phillip the Chair, 2008-2012.

Whatever you do, just don't sit still. Start up a not-too-stressful project or go drive out somewhere that you hadn't been yet something. Even if it sucks for a while, it's always a lot better than sitting in one place mentally and physically, from my observation.

That said, I'm not looking forward to the next few months either. From the last few years, I know that I am definitely afflicted by seasonal depression and I will be very surprised if by January/February I'm not in that sort of state too. But I will be ready to kick its ass and get through shit when it comes :gar:

What Oto said about not sitting in one place for too long. I always make the mistake of doing so, and then I sub-consciously put on extremely depressing music that starts to further affect me. At that point I am so... melancholy that I can't do anything, not even turn off the music. Sometimes thinking can be such a curse to those afflicted with painful memories and dreadful thoughts, no matter what they are. You know... reminds me an awful lot of Neon Genesis Evangelion.

And then the worst feeling for me of all is that the hobbies and things I enjoyed so much, such as editing and all of that, become so arduous and demotivating. For instance, I go to make a video, but then I start to depress myself because I think too much about how it will be perceived rather then how I perceive it. That often stops me from continuing/starting a project or signing up for MEPs. Sometimes I am forced to go on haitus for as much as a week at a time without even touching this hobby. Don't get me wrong, I love what I do, it's just sometimes... we all need to step away and do something else for a while.
