Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

I've recently gotten my first job and the experience has been mostly positive so far. This post is in the FML thread because of what I had to do before I got the job. I was following some digs a construction firm did to install some water tubes or something along those lines. My family doesn't have any experience with this sort of independent job. I had to get insurance and a bunch of papers I'd never heard of before and the experience was more tiring than the job itself, witch, due to not much of anything popping up, consisted mostly of me watching other people work. I'm just not used to the kind of bureaucracy these jobs require. Unfortunately, they are the more common work an archaeologist can find so I have to get used to them, has there will likely be times when I have no other job offers.

Thankfully, the pay is pretty decent.

Somehow managed to survive this long at my shitty overnight part-time stocking job, and for a while I was visibly improving my skills and physique and building a respectable reputation. But now it feels like I've reached the point where there is no possible future but to utterly flake out and go down in a flaming ball of depression and arthritis. I feel all the worse for being such a useless wuss while somehow so many others suck it up. I really have no inner resilience at all and I'm probably what people are referring to when they talk about lazy millennials.

I hate fucking everything.

Have you considered Central Asia? I was in Almaty (Kazakhstan) last year as a tourist and almost took a job with a dig for 4 months. I have an anthropology minor and some experience with dig sites as a photographer, but probably nothing approaching your credentials. Just the travel bug and an expensive camera kit with macro lenses. They're so desperate for crew they'll hire anyone out there. Plenty of French Unis who are digging up Greco-Baktrian ruins.

I've heard similar stories about archaeological sites in some eastern European countries. Going to a far off country and making some money is appealing, but right now the thing I need to do the most after I finish my thesis is getting more experience with Roman sites, since that's the area I'm going to focus on. That means the farthest I'd go would probably be Turkey. Unfortunately, most of these archaeological excavations off Europe are done by English, french and German universities, and sometimes some Americans and Canadians. Poor little Portugal never got much into the whole "digging up poor countries stuff" that was all the rage in the XIX and XX century and still continues to a degree today.

Still, the possibility is there, and I've heard the stories plenty of my professors have of doing similar things, but, if I'm looking at it right, it's stuff I'll only be able to even consider a few years down the line.

My mom lying and denying about everything that she does to bully me to my therapist. Also, my mom is triggered by the phrase calm down. She spazzes and screams about everything and it drives me up the wall. She says that she doesn't need any help and claims that she doesn't need to be back on meds. I honestly think that she needs help and needs to be back on meds but I have no clue how to help a stubborn person like her who refuses to admit that she needs help.
