    the attack on introverts

    look i am fucking sick of having to ask for references and letters of recommendation for everything that i do

    jobs
    schools

    recommendations
    references

    i am on my fucking knees
    awkwardly asking people i barely talk to for fucking references

    sick of the shit

    i have a damn near 3.9 gpa
    work history never missed a fucking day

    never started any shit

    i am a good person

    but no

    what do they want?

    they want fucking ass kissing extraverts
    who can give 20,000 references from their bosses and peers whose asses they kissed just for this moment

    there is a fucking attack on introverts
    i am sick of it

    yes i called susan cain a soft bitch before for bitching about the same thing
    but now that it affects me i am in the same boat

    stop the fucking good old boys shit
    w

    sick of it

    rant complete

    i did what i was supposed to do without being detected

    how is that not a quality that employers want?

    employees that just shut the fuck up and do what they need to do and do it well

    but no
    they want these fucking cheerleaders and jocks

    and asskissers

    My understanding of research is that it is political.

    i don't even want to go anymore

    i don't want to go to grad school

    i don't want a fucking job

    if i have to seriously beg people that don't know shit about me because i mind my own fucking business
    to write something about me

    instead of them just looking at my fucking qualifications, giving me a test, or something based on ME and my merits -- not someone who doesn't know me -- someone who doesn't know me's perception of me

    you know what that perception is?
    FIDGETY &
    awkward

    i am just done with it

    If you're too proud to beg for references, how are you going to beg for grant money?

    however the difference is that i would be asking to fund something that i have developed whereas a reference is just 'how much do you like me?' as in a development of a relationship not something tangible
