RE: Your day explained in a GIF
Yesterday, I went to a public meeting/social gathering of some powerful folks in social advocacy and legislative lobbying/consulting, for whom I'd very much like to work, and impressed the shit out of them. Was totally "on my game", dazzling with not only quick reference to important/relevant caselaw, but also with approaches to the issues (due to my experience from inside the justice system) which they had not previously considered. Got called "extremely intelligent" by both the state director and local Board president of the agency, in separate conversations.

I may soon have a much, much better-paying job, thanks to "School of Hard Knocks" certificate overlaid atop my original nerdiness. Big Grin

RE: Your day explained in a GIF
Well, cancel the above celebration. Found out today that last week, the funding for the position for which I was applying was pulled after direct intervention by Jeff Sessions' newly "reformed" Department of Justice, and the changes went into effect today, meaning the position no longer exists. Angry

They have literally applied pressure to donor organizations and threatened to harass the groups who provide funding to organizations that stand up against what they're doing. It's not just the group to which I was applying; it's across the board. It's an assault on the watchdog groups in the United States, a preemptive strike against the disingenuous shit they're planning to pull, which is the reason the groups exist in the first place.

I'm sick to my stomach, again. I'm trying very hard not to hate these evil bastards.

Back to working for peanuts.
