And as I was lurking on /b/ I stumbled upon a thread that made comments about making sandwiches for a guy. When I asked her if she’d make me a sandwich, she responded with “Of course I’d make you a sandwich if I had the right materials. I know my place.”
I’ve officially declared her a diamond league division 1 girlfriend. XD

Apparently one of the kids I had made friends with this year in my dorm died today. He was up in New York, and no new information has been gained yet, but that really sucks. He was a good kid, and I remember saying to him yesterday to have a good summer and stay safe and I’d see him next semester…
And now he’s not gonna be there at all…
Literally I have to work tomorrow for 6 hours and my semester is done. No more finals, no more classes, just home. But today, I have a shift at work as well as a final AND a presentation to do.
And some random professor, a professor who I had helped earlier in the year with setting up a camera, accused me of being a “thief” for going and making sure the printer in the psychology department’s lab had paper in it. I’ve literally been filing paper in there for the past 5 months without so much as a howdy der, and the day before classes end I’m getting questioned for doing my job.
This semester has officially been too much for me. I can’t wait to get outta here.

When some random ass woman comes up to me asking me if I’m a student. Apparently her daughter is thinking about going to my college so she wanted to have some questions answered. I wasn’t doing anything majorly important and so I prepared myself for questioning. First (and the only real important) question: Am I happy that I went to the school I’m attending?
I started making the school look fantastic of course, it’s what I always do, but after I had left and started walking back to work, it hit me… I really don’t know how I feel about college. Or life in general.
The past few months have been extremely rough, nothing’s seemed to be going my way, and it’s super stressful. I try hard to keep myself together but sometimes I just… Can’t. There are some days where I feel that dropping out would be the best decision to make.
Then I got to thinking about all the friends I’ve made, all the adventures I’ve had, and how much I’ve changed since leaving high school. And I realize that my experience could’ve been so much different from what it was; who knows what kinda people I would’ve met and what kinda person I would’ve been if I had gone to a different school.
It’s a simple question, but one that’s been getting at me since it was brought up. Honestly, I’m glad I made the decision to go to my college. It’s become more of a home than home. I just hope I can keep it that way.
And I’m almost positive this is the first time I’ve actually enjoyed being home in quite some time. I don’t know what’s so different about being here this time compared to every other time, but it just feels more like my home right now.
I should be able to survive this break no problem. :D

But my job just pissed me off today. Not because it was something I had to put up with, I do that basically every day. But it’s the fact that all my assumptions about being smarter than my superiors was confirmed today.
I had 3 separate problems today that I had no idea what I was doing. They were all assigned to me by the same supervisor (the other supervisor I have is actually really good at what she does and even if she doesn’t know she’s a hell of a lot better at setting me up so I have a clue). And each time I would ask more in-depth questions about the problems I was going to be solving, I got the same answer: “I don’t know.”
This supervisor has been working here longer than I have, has seen a lot of stuff happen and has been around when a lot of stuff has changed. But when I ask about a problem to get a better understanding as to why I’m walking away from my desk (which I’m the only one at) to take a look at a problem that can be solved in 15 seconds by a 3rd grader, I expect a much better description than “I don’t know, just go check it out.” And our ticket system is just a joke, but it seems to be the only things that’s important. Don’t tell me to put in a ticket every time I connect someone’s phone to the college network or run updates on a computer. I did what the directions said to do, if someone doesn’t know the directions by now they shouldn’t be working there.
And just because I have a certain piece of technology doesn’t automatically make me a master of that equipment. Yes, I have an Android phone. No, I don’t know how to manually configure some other person’s Android phone running a completely different OS from mine onto a network that prides itself on being the worst network it could possibly be. Don’t assume I can just do that, I need time to research. And the best part is when the supervisor tries to use terminology she doesn’t understand. If you don’t know what the SSL certificate is or does, don’t tell me to try and mess around with it. And don’t tell me “Oh, it should be on our website” either, cause 99.999999% of the time, it isn’t. That’s a joke too.
God… The things I do for money…

I mean, I’m literally given no power to do anything. I can set people up on the network, I can fix the computer/projector setups in classrooms, I can answer the telephone… And that’s about it.
And then when I tell people “I can’t do anything, I’m sorry” they either get pissed off like it’s my fault or my supervisors get pissed off. I’m sorry, if I had the ability to reset people’s passwords or push computers through the system, 99% of the problems would be fixed. But no, instead I have to sit around like a useless fool and wait for someone else to do the work that I’m completely capable of doing.

And it’s only midnight.
And nobody’s trying to chill.
And I don’t have any more work that I’m willing to do.
… People say college is hard. I say it’s a damn great experience. XD
