    Bad news: a 45K word fic I spent months on only got 4 kudos.

    Good news: It's a fic for an incredibly small fandom that averaged a consistent four and a half views a chapter with every weekly update. 4 kudos when probably a grand total of 5 people read it is an incredibly high rate.

    Good news: I got a refurbished iPad!
    Bad news: There was some mishandling of the parcel, and it came with a (physically) broken home button.
    Good news: The seller is being great about it, and a replacement is being sent! (I'm sending the broken one back, of course--they plan on filing a claim with the postal service due to it having been broken in transit.)

    Bad news: it's half eight at night and I have to work (have to watch a webinar related to COVID vaccinations)

    Good news: I managed to figure out how to stream a single chrome tab to my television, which means I can still use the computer while I watch this webinar.

    Good news: there’s a branch of my very small bank in my city now!

    Bad news: they’ve been there for at least three years and now they think I’m a dumbass for not knowing.

    Good news: banks are really efficient now!

    Bad news: I haven’t physically been inside a bank since 2014 and my understanding of how they work is seven years and a few technological leaps behind.

    Good news: my cash tips turned into digital money in my account as soon as the machine counted and ate them, so I didn’t have to worry about not being able to access my money for three days while my deposit processed.

    Bad news: my bank teller really, really thinks I’m dumb. It took three times as much back and forth as it should have for me to grasp that the money was already in my account when she said “today,” “right now,” and “you can check your account and see your deposit right now, ma’am.”

  11. Nobody's Home

    Nobody's Home I'm a Greg Coded Tom Girl

    I've started training for my new job and I'm really bad at all of it its extremely embarrassing and I feel like they will just let go of me after the 2 weeks training for sure

    In other news I told a crush that I liked them, and they returned my feelings, and I can't help but feel a little giddy at a little romance
