Abdicating Responsibility . . .

At work, at school, in life.

What do you do when the people getting paid to do their jobs do not want to do their jobs? Or worse assign someone else to do it for them. This really irks me, not so much about the pay but about the credit. I slave over an assignment and someone else takes the credit. Then they don't even have the decency to tell me 'good job'.


Hunger . . .

I don't do well with hunger. I get miserable, pouty, downright cranky. I literally am unable to function properly or work. I'm also a very picky eater. And I firmly believe that the food pyramid should peak with the good foods instead of the the boring ones (the so-called healthy foods).

What's worse, I don't cook. Not that I can't cook, I just don't cook. But now that I'm on my own, I have to be fending for myself a little more. I just don't know how people with kids do it though. I go home and if I'm too tired to be bothered, which happens a lot, I eat chips and salsa for dinner.

How do the people who starve themselves do it? Or what about the ones who do not have a choice? Scary.

Why did I bring up this hunger thing, you might ask. Well, the fact is a few days ago my friends made me wait an extra half hour before going to lunch. And I'm still bitch, moaning and groaning about the delay. Yep, I really hate being hungry.

Mmm. I understand. I have low blood sugar. I get the shakes, headaches, I lose speech coherence and then I pass out. It all happens within an hour of finding out I'm hungry. So the sugar low hits hard and fast and one of the in between stages is pissed offness. Nausea because of hunger, lack of interest in any particular offered food and bitchiness that you can't figure it out for me. Sound like you? Go get tested for hypoglycemia.

I HATE that feeling.

I haven't gotten so bad that I pass out, although I do get really dizzy, but everything else is right on point. I'll definitely get tested.

Even if you test borderline, it's critical to know. Keep some nuts in your purse. I hate nuts but they do the trick.

I knew we had a lot in common. I refuse to cook as well - it's just wrong and against the natural order of things
