It's sad how bad hiring in the IT sector in Adelaide is right now.. I've applied to jobs that 12 months ago I would have received a call for an interview almost the same day as applying..

Now? I hear nothing, get an email a few weeks later with a generic 'not proceeding' or 'found a candidate' template.

I think having Google and Apple on my resume now makes me look like I'll be wanting too much money? Maybe that I'm 'overqualified' or 'over-experienced'?

I'm fairly open about the fact I'm transgender, I don't advertise it on my resume and shit, but I think a lot of companies see "Samantha" on the application and go "A female? Lolno, this male has less experience, but they are male"

The IT industry, especially in support is so flooded and controlled by men that even inviting a female in for an interview would be so against their culture it isn't worth the effort.

I shortened my name to "Sam" on my resume for two roles as a test the other day, guess what.. got a fucking email wanting to setup an interview. I declined just on principle. It's insane how backwards this state is for hiring.

I'm contemplating moving interstate or trying to go overseas.. I'm not an idiot, I work fucking hard, I learn quick and I consider myself pretty fucking good at the work I do, alas.. I live in a backwards place.

I want to build a 'retro' gaming rig that will run Windows XP and Vista (for luls) what specs and internals do you think I should go with?

Some form of high-end for the time Intel chip or be "one of those people" and buy a six-core AMD chip.

I'm starting to feel like all the anxiety I have is starting to break me more and more everyday, I don't want to get out of bed, I find myself not eating properly and I'm starting to lose some enjoyment in the things I love..

I think most of this comes from my current job, which I think at this point is a sign that what I'm doing is completely not for me and I should look for something else..

Kinda wish finding some part-time work in my sector was easier, want to focus on Twitch a bit more these days..

I became a Twitch Affiliate on Sunday and today I finally got my first two emotes approved. The path to making this a thing I want to do full-time in the next 12 months is slowly becoming a thing.

Finally got to sanding wet and dry to get this sucker painted up.
Turned out fairly close to the original phaser, the model I used wasn't 100% accurate so hopefully I can find a more screen accurate one to print soon.

Overall, stupidly happy with how well this 3D print went, now to wait for the next half of ST: Discovery's season -_-

3D printed myself a phaser from Star Trek Discovery. Came out pretty good. Just have to get it sanded, primed and then painted.
