@themugue I always have weird feelings looking for jobs. I never think I'm qualified for anything at all. I found it easier to start applying for things when I was told to remember that it's their job to decide if you're qualified, not yours. I had some massive confidence hits over the years, being rejected for simple things though so it's hard to keep going sometimes.
I have no solutions, just solidarity. Good luck!
Thanks to some fortuitous available #BoardGame time of everyone involved, we managed an eight-player Captain Sonar (https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/171131/captain-sonar) session this afternoon. What a unique and intense game this is! Definitely a crowd favourite.

@koosli @Andrea oh don't get me started on Oppo. To clarify - great hardware, well priced ... But at a software level, a total nightmare. Locked down to hell and back, overly aggressive power management that kills any app not whitelisted (leading to many missed notifications), riddled with misspellings ... Never hated a phone more.
OTOH, super happy with my Moto X4 right now for the record. Worth considering.

@pelagikat thanks, I missed this last year after not seeing the date they were doing it until too late.

@WandelStock trying to book tickets for Avengers at a nearby cinema actually.
Also, hilariously, they don't tell you if a session is sold out until you try to buy a ticket for it.
Hello from Boronia Peak, in Halls Gap! I traditionally really only take selfies after climbing to the top of something fairly high. Here's one. This is a much more rewarding walk then The Pinnacle on the other side of the gap.
@theoutrider there are people who have never known a world without The Simpsons who have grandchildren.
@Funkpirata I get that people love it, and don't want to stop anyone from going if that's their thing - but honestly if you asked me to describe my own personal vision of hell, it'd sound a lot like Confest.
