My main customer has recently violated his own payment terms. They payed two weeks later than their own terms and conditions allowed. They have also recently tried to push me to sign a new contract with conductions that are less favorable for me than before with no othe changes to compensate for that.
Today I talked to one of the project managers with whom I'm on first name terms. She told me a lot of suppliers had complained about late payments these days. So I asked her directly: "Should I be worried? Do you guys have financial problems?" (after all my economic existence largely depends on theirs)
She laughed hysterically: "Oh, god, no!" Apparently they are doing very well and being a dick to their suppliers is part of why they are doing so well.
They didn't get rich by writing out checks...

I've never been diagnosed as depressive. Though I know that doesn't stop it from being classified as an antidepressant.
I'm just aware of how I find it impossible to function without it... which is frustrating.'Consciousness is not simply a sensory-perceptual affair, a matter of mental imagery, as the contents of our mind would have us believe.

OK, here goes:
I wish I could look like this guy:
Hell, I wish MORE guys looked like this. If I wanted short hair on guys, I wouldn't go FORWARD in time to witness it, damn you 2010s fashion. I envy girls for how they still get to wear their hair long this decade in order to look fashionable.
Also, 2010s music is really bland. Who the hell writes this decade's music, three year olds?
On another note. I wish I could appreciate this sort of music. I feel like I'm a sheep who comes from a mildly Christian background that only listens to pop music, especially the above.

I'm also annoyed that I won't be able to afford it.

What? So we hang out once and suddenly you're tolerable? Suddenly we are best friends forever? Fuck you. And fuck me for wanting it to be that way.
You aren't allowed to be a shitty person for two years, treat me like garbage, and then hug me ad apologize and tell me you missed me like that. It's not fair. You always win. You ALWAYS win. You use me until I'm no longer useful and then you toss me aside. I hate that. You know I hate that. Why am I stuck in this cycle with you? Why do you get to be happy and I'm miserable? You wouldn't do shit for me if I was on the brink of death yet whenever you get the slightest bit uncomfortable, I'm there to fix it.
I don't even like you anymore, yet I still feel trapped under your thumb.
I've gone about 6 months not acknowledging your existence, yet one dinner and I'm back where I started. You're fucking evil and I hate you. I hate you so much. I want you to suffer for a fucking second. Feel bad about something. FACE A CONSEQUENCE. I violently believe in karma, why are you unaffected? Why don't bad things happen to you while you do so many bad things?
I feel so weird and you make me sick.
