If we have fandom or horses in common, I will more than likely friend you back. Actually, if we have nothing in common at all, I will probably friend you anyway.
Unless you're a troll. Or all about The Drama. Because I just don't have time for that.
Feel free to friend and de-friend at will. No worries. I don't take it personally. You can comment if you have any questions or something. Or if you just want to leave me a dirty message. rawr.
Not caring about getting written up or fired.
This is what my job (that I once LOVED) has come to.
I'm so depressed by it that I no longer care.
It is hard to find the motivation to leave the confort zone of a place you've worked at for 5 years.
For those of you who do still check in though, I hope that your 2015 is fantastic :)
I've actually been offered a new position for the same company. It's kind of...awkward. I will be working at their second facility which is an hour and a half away. BUT it's at the beach and my family has a beach house about 20 minutes away so I'm planning on driving downstate with the dogs/cats, staying at the beach house for 3 days while I work, then driving back upstate to my apartment the other 4 days of the week to spend time with he horses and work my other job.
Not an ideal set-up, but at least it gives me an option. I was planning on looking for other employment and quitting at the beginning of May anyway. This new position starts around that same time so I guess it's kind of meant to be. They're hiring a new vet and I will be the head technician in charge of surgery and anesthesia. NO PRESSURE, LOL. We'll see who gets burned out first - me or the vet.
BUT I'LL BE AT THE BEACH MORE OFTEN. I've missed it soooooo much. Maybe I can actually have a bit of a social life too. Love going to the open bars at the beach, where its acceptable to be sunburned and flip-flopped 100% of the time.
And, in what was the primary reason for me making this decision, I'm going to be making significantly more money. I'm making $12/hour at my current job and will be making almost $20/hour at the new one. YOU GUYS, THAT'S A SHIT TON OF MONEY FOR ME. EVEN IF I ONLY WORK 30 HOURS A WEEK. If nothing else, at least I'll deal with it for a few months over the summer and save up some money (hopefully). I'm already like "hmm, I could totally buy a horse trailer... and I DO need a bigger car...". Finance fail.
That's basically my Real Life Stuff.
If we want to channel the Fangirl for a second thooooough... HOLY FUCKBALLS, THE FOLLOWING. YOU GUYS. HOW IS EVERYONE NOT WATCHING THIS SHOW?? I ACTUALLY CRIED THE LAST EPISODE WITH THE CONVERSATION THAT RYAN AND CLAIRE HAD IN THE BEDROOM. SDFJAKHJFGASHJ KEVIN BACON IS MY GOD.

IN THE MEANTIME,
I've signed up for the Mentalist Big Bang. Hmmm, don't even know what to write about. But I'm sure it'll be Angst or Apocafic. Because, honestly, that's all I can write!! Thoughts? Prompts? Fellow participants??
And, AND, because I blew through basically all the good Mentalist fic in about a

In the darkness, the monsters crowd his mind until he feels they are suffocating him.
He whispers stories into the soft skin of her stomach (it holds the demons at bay, at least for the moment) and she pretends to sleep (even though they both know it's a ruse) while he weaves tales of fire eaters and lion tamers.
'I was scared of the elephants, always of the elephants, just so... big', he admits softly, then grins, 'And then I taught them to pick pockets...'
The words stop, his fingertips dance over her ribs, remembering acrobatics from long ago.
She smiles (knows he can sense it even if he can't see it) and forgoes the pretense of sleep to reach for him, traces the outline of his face, imagines a boy with golden curls and a circus family and a notable lack of nightmares.
He leans into her touch, rests his chin on her belly and closes his eyes with a deep sigh of relief.
For now at least, the devils will sleep.
And so will he.
She is strong enough to protect him tonight.
(And, cloaked safely in the dark, he will let her.)

"I was a good person once", he murmurs, his voice heavy with the constant burden of guilt and regret.
What she should say is 'You're a good person NOW'. But she knows that he'll never believe her words, even if they are the truth.
Instead she whispers "I know" into the darkness. His hand on her belly tightens almost imperceptively and she covers it with her own, lacing her fingers with his.
