This started as something else, but ended up being kind of a vent piece about some of the negative emotions I have regarding circumstances and people I've been having to deal with on a daily basis.

There's a weird pressure to pretend to be happy all the time, yet simultaneously, you're kind of told to keep your mouth shut, let everyone else run their mouths, and accept their attempts to make you feel inferior, to silence you and ignore the fact that everyone else in the room makes mistakes too. Oh, the rules keep changing and you're struggling to keep up because you just fucking got here? I don't know what you're talking about, I haven't done anything wrong, nothing's changed; you're just stupid, obviously. Stop being so negative. You're just making it worse for yourself.

And the prize for putting up with all of this? Having a job, I guess... People pretending to be nice to you and like you? Is that even a prize? Feels more like a waste of time and a slap in the face to me, but oh, well.

I’m not too happy with the physical proportions, but maybe that’s just my brain being fussy. Sisters of Mercy is a real band that I really enjoy and highly recommend. They're also pretty iconic. NO, they are not the only band I listen to, LOL, I just figured that since I drew their logo on my fursona's band shirt, I might as well offer the suggestion. The music style isn't going to fit everyone's taste, obviously, but hey, one song can't hurt you, right?
