cmajalislolz YOU PHOTOGRAPHED THIS
It is such a lovely place <3 I stared at these stairs for a looong time.
Okay to me this looks EXACTLY like my mental picture of the Institute from Monday Begins on Saturday by the Strugatsky brothers.
Some of you are really cool folks and stuff, but you sometimes reblogs from people who either harrased me or harrased one of my friends and it just, really stressing…
I’m making this post as a “please, like/reblog this post if it’s okay to address this and let you know about this person”.
In the same way, if I ever reblog from someone who is known for doing terrible things, please let me know and I’ll keep it in private if that’s your wish.
I went to the bodega/deli across the street from work just now because I hadn’t been there in a long time and I felt a tiny bit guilty at having transferred my allegiance to another one a few blocks away.
And they have a cat now! A friendly cat! I petted her and scratched her chin and then she hooked her claws in my jeans and tried to climb up my legs! I was so frickin happy.
And then I got back and ate my egg & cheese sandwich and remembered why I stopped going there in the first place. :(
Oh well, maybe I’ll get my orange juice from them just to say hi once in a while and pet the cat.
Anonymous said: I just wanted to ask if you have any thoughts on what I should put down for my salary requirement for a part time project coordinator job at a networking/cabling firm. I will be be interviewing for the job and they want my requirements before the interview. I could not find an answer searching online and you seem to have quite a bit of knowledge in this area.
Oh bb, I wish, but that is outside of my industry and experience. I haven’t had a part-time job since high school, and that was in a coffee shop.
If you can, I would simply say “salary requirements: negotiable”. That at least gives you time to do more research. Have a look at full time project coordinator/manager positions, and work out what portion of that you’d make at 20 hours/week, 30 hours/week, etc. Or tell them that you’re more comfortable discussing that once you know what their salary window is ($20K-$50K, $7K-$20K, whatever). If you know their lower and upper limits you can place yourself inside them based on experience.
Sorry, salary requirements really aren’t my area of expertise. They’re far too variable based on industry and region.
It’s in mine!
1- go to the BLS national salary survey http://www.bls.gov/NCS
2 - find your job title, you’ll find your NATIONAL average salary
3- go to the consumer price index calculator http://www.bls.gov/cpi/
4- figure out if your region is at, above or below national prices. here’s how: divide your region’s CPI by national CPI
5- multiply the number from (4) by the number from (3). If you took an hourly figure, that’s how much you should get per hour.
6- if (3) was an annual salary, then divide the number you get out of (5) by 2,000 to get an hourly rate (40 hours per week, 50 weeks a year ==> 2,000 hours).
You get the average salary figure your job should get in your region. These figures are based on both employee AND employer surveys, so the data is reasonably accurate for things based on human reporting.
Ask if you’ve got questions!
HEY ANON or really HEY EVERYONE. Well, everyone wanting to get a salary estimate in the US. LOOK AT THIS! *vanna wave*
listening to the Agincourt Carol on repeat and wondering whose soul I can sell to get a Fortress in the Eye of Time miniseries made
Christian Louboutin Fifi pump in 5 shades of nude, part of the "Rapid Response Collecting" exhibit at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
Holy shit, something labeled “nude” that comes in different colors!
The thing is when you’re bisexual, you’re not really surprised when a straight person is biphobic. Sure it sucks and you’re like “well fuck you too dude” to whoever the prick is; but it’s not so astonishing.
Biphobic gay people on the other hand, actually hurt like a motherfucker. Like bro you’re supposed to be on my side??? Like even “my people” can’t accept me?? That hurts so much more than some random dude who expects a threesome.
Just wrapped up SPX in Bethesda, and I WON THE IGNATZ for Best Online comic!!! SPX and those awards (and the comic for which it is named) mean so much to me and really appreciate the award.
Vattu book 3 begins today. This one is a big one, and we’re starting out with the first look so far at the absolute upper echelons of Sahta’s government. Thank you all for bearing with me during the break. I’m looking forward to getting into the thick of this book.
The Oz project is wrapping up and a book is happening soon. My Patreon has cleared 300 a month, so everybody who pledges within the month will get a ton of sketchbook pdfs. I’m feeling good and optimistic about the things I am working on, and I really appreciate you reading.
(so so excited)
