    like my heart literally feels like it split down the center and entered into my spleen
    having to lower myself down to the level of fucking begging for letters of recommendation from people that have a ton of shit to do on their plate
    has effectively
    destroyed
    me

    not only that but the uncertainty and likely rejection is so fucking painful
    that i am probably going to spin into a massive episode of depression

    i cannot for the life of me understand who thought it was a good idea to require such work from outsiders to determine whether or not someone is worthy of entering their program

    look at my shit alone don't rely on other people who have ten billion other things to do

    jesus christ

    i am melting

    when a job asks for a recommendation, i just write them myself and pretend to be that person because i don't want to bother them

    i literally have created multiple fake emails and filled out recommendations for jobs so i would not have to get on my fucking knees and ask for help

    jesus christ my lord and savior
    why

    fucking hate depending on people

    i would have rather been shot in the fucking ass cheek than do this

    god. if i ever get into a position where i might be expected to write letters of recommendation i am just going to offer them like candy to keep people from feeling like this

    I agree- self important, pretentious

    That hyphen is my middle finger showing you the door with which to hit your ass which is saggy and no one is looking at unless they swallowed something they need to puke up or die like Rufio saying I wish I had a dad like you with stupid mascara.

    1 said "I would love to"

    another said "I will do it; however..." and said she is just a grad student and will ask the professor of the department to complete it alongside her so there is a stronger recommendation

    and the one who I messed up her name hasn't responded yet but it hasn't even been a day yet

    so far so good and idk why I was crying having to ask
