i think i just messed up a calculus exam fairly badly and prob ruined my chances for better than a B in the class, im exhausted and haven't had as much time to study as i need, i really need to quit my job

she also supported hillary over bernie because "he didn't have the experience to lead" and had unrealistic goals such as single-payer healthcare. vet healthcare doesn't work so therefore according to her it can't work on the national level

i explained to her that it's worked in many other industrialized countries in the world but she was adamant that those countries are too small and different for comparison

"if only we could reduce the drug prices somehow" hmmm, i wonder how indeed...

what was the test on, was it like parabolas and shit



there was easy stuff like newton's method, l'hopital's rule, linear approximation. then there was like graphing some rational equations by taking their first and second derivatives, which is easy but time consuming and i made a lot of mistakes by rushing because we only had 45 minutes.

my job has slowly been creeping from lawyer toward social worker over the last year, and now its got to the point where like a third of my time is spent trying to get my clients' social security and medicaid benefits reinstated so that they can not starve to death in the streets when they get out of jail and onto probation, which will almost certainly be revoked down the line, thereby landing them back in jail which will result in their benefits being taken away. either that or im trying to get my mentally ill clients stabilized on medication so that they may possibly not reoffend when they get out and also assisted living facilities will let them live there and not on the street, but the jail wont let doctors in to prescribe drugs and if they already have a prescription, its usually to something that the jail wont let them take while theyre incarcerated

on the positive side, i got a new vape pen which i can use to do dabs so life is alright

lol i forgot all of that stuff. i did calc 3 but then i got out of engineering g'oh



its pretty monotonous spending so much time doing completely abstract stuff by hand, like past a certain point repetition of taking and applying derivatives doesn't have any benefit for conceptual understanding, it would be a lot better if it were taught by people who know physics and programming. i just have to get through it though i guess so whatever

I just had a reallu long argument at a bar with a guy that had Father Issues that took a turn for the void when he started defending Dawkins evolutionary biology and saying that the most "logical solution is to inject all men on earth with estrogen to "chill them out" and when I did not agree, argued for free will and said technocrats are racist he wanted to fight l m a o

I'm drunk. And sad. And i dont forgive Mein Vader for voting for Drumpf, if only his estrogen was a tad higher he would understand the ideology of this cult called NYC that i have come to call my home, despite my self-loathing it's a Great place to make friends with people who think Identically to me.

Castration is probably at least as effective for the desired effect and needs ideally only one visit to the hospital; therefore a much more efficient use of state resources than regular estrogen shots.

thanks, i really appreciate you saying that. i wish we had an actual social worker who knew what they were doing better than i do but its not in the budget (we do have one for juvy clients). its really frustrating trying to navigate the bureaucracy, and i just wish id got an msw instead because i find it to be pretty rewarding and it would have cost a fraction of my jd. plus i wouldnt also have to litigate cases for my dozens of other clients at the same time

i invited that guy from work over for thanksgiving, he's vegetarian so im gonna make like some good corn bread, black beans, sweet potato & apples, cranberry sauce, and collards. and i think next semester im gonna transition to part time undergrad learning assistant so i can get paid to tutor algebra and calculus like 20 hours a week. life is really good like all the time these days and even tho i guess it's just like barely a baseline i'm proud of myself for becoming a functional human again because i didn't really think i was gonna make it. when i have more time away from work i think i should finally have time to get back to some reading in history/econ/politics and get involved in some organizing
