Applying for a job that I really want. [EDIT: got an interview request 2 hours later!] Only problem is that it’s in Tyson’s Corner which means I might have to move out of my beloved Maryland unless I can find miraculously cheap rent somewhere.
Buuut people actually do fandom shit in Virginia so
I shouldn’t do cart before horse things like this but it’s nice to be hopeful.
I have never sat around watching Game of Thrones drunk, like EVER
A BREAK IN OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED PROGRAMMING TO BRING YOU A RANT
I’ve tried to be quiet about the continual FanSided/wicnet nonsense because it hasn’t really been my place to complain and, well, I fired off about this on Twitter already, also my sleep schedule is way off, but Fansided (who ru[i]n[ed] wicnet) are fucking liars and I have goddamn HAD IT.
They are claiming that they have never deleted comments and that is a fucking lie. I HAVE SCREENSHOTS OF THEM DELETING COMMENTS. They deleted one of my comments and FURY FOUND IT IN THE TRASH AND RESTORED IT.
What comment? You might ask. Well. In their now infamous series of drinks posts they had something along the lines of a “Tiny Tyriontini” or some bullshit like that. They used a tiny plastic martini glass and the hostess mugged with it in the video screenshot.
I found this very offensive. I took time planning and crafting a comment for this. I called them out and ended along the lines of “What’s next? An ableist appletini?”
I thought this was an appropriate way to point out the offensiveness without being unprofessional and while maintaining a level of sarcasm. This comment was quickly DELETED and an EMAIL was sent to the EIC bitching about a site contributor making such a remark!
I despise censorship and the fact that they covered up someone pointing out a bad post in general is awful. So to pretend like you didn’t fucking do anything is incredibly insulting especially when you got on the case of the EIC who didn’t have anything to do with it. Those motherfuckers could have emailed ME. I was the one who made the comment, right? I probably would have sent them links about ableism and sensitivity but whatever.
And let’s not even get into how I didn’t get a single fucking thank you for 20 recap posts that were completed /on time/ during the season and that I originated video recap posts, adding to their precious fucking quota. I could break down how much work all that entailed but fuck it! I’m the invisible woman. I didn’t leave the site right away to see if I could support the EIC (and to look at all the comments they were deleting lol you assholes) but I was not contacted ONCE by ANYONE so after fruitless conversations initiated by myself I fucking bounced.
So have fun being liars with shit content and no traffic. This is the last time I refer to your site so fuck off into the sunset and farewell.
So despite crushing depression, incompetency and active hatred of my dickish classmates I came out of grad school with a 3.5
Not fucking bad.
If you want to watch The Knick, tread carefully if:
You’re freaked out by

This show isn’t messing around
