Complaint Thursdays

Recommended Posts

Special one day out of the week threads lose their luster if we make an identical thread for a different day of the week.  But hey, we have to be sure that people hit their daily quota for starting threads.

This team. They always seem to find ways to clutch defeat from the jaws of victory.

 

What an embarrassment to the city of Buffalo, NY and its expat fanbase.

 

EDIT: Sorry. I did not know that sna*** was considered to be profanity on here. That was definitely not my intent.

Also, getting older. Everything feels like a goal/task now. I miss being genuinely excited for small things like a game or a book to read

This week, I've decided to try working out before work instead of after.

 

Man, I am so not a morning person.

Couple of job interviews. In my field you have to take basically a mid term each time you interview. Feels like I'm back on college all over again, just without the fun parts

I feel that. I'm trying to figure out my next step too and it's not easy. I'm not really qualified for anything that I'm applying for, and the hunt is pretty haphazard because I'm not really even sure what I'm looking for.

Definitely just crossing my fingers that something eventually comes together, or else I'm going to have to head out of the area (something I'm not particularly interested in doing). 

I should have just gone to business school and worked in finance like everyone else lol

Yeah. Events have occurred in my life that make it so that I'd like to stay in Buffalo for the time being.

If I haven't come up with anything new in a year or so I'm probably going to have to head elsewhere.

Yeah leaving WNY is not currently on the table for me, which is hurting things. And I don't know anyone and came from a school with the tiniest physics department imaginable, so networking opportunities like @shrader mentioned in the other thread are slim, though i'm going to start brainstorming something more in that direction soon. 

Like literally with a little training I could crush some of these other applicants IMO, I would be at a disadvantage early because I haven't mastered specific computer software right now like they have, but down the line I have no doubts I would be a valuable employee, and loyal to the region too. These companies that aren't calling me back, I have friends telling me that they lose workers every week to places where the sun comes out. I prooooomise I won't ever leave you if you give me a chance lol I hate it everywhere else 

I know it's possible, because several people I know from other schools who didn't go get the master's degree and have my same bachelor's degree are both working, one in Rochester (and Akron before that) and one in Olean (where he lives) so I just have to be patient

Yup. That's what kills me. I might not look the best on paper, but I know that I'm trainable and I know how to put the time in to learn anything I'd need to learn. And then I'd hang around for a while!

Companies around here are screaming for good employees to fill good paying positions, but they don't actually want to bring anyone in to grow into those positions. They want some other company to have done all the hard work for them or something.
