All the people who are saying that they really miss the office, clearly never had someone in their office not flush / clean their poop properly. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

#officelife
I canโ€™t even tell you how many offices have that one โ€œoffencerโ€ that slack msgs have to be written about weekly โ€œPLEASE CLEAN THE TOILET BEHIND YOUโ€.
And then the communal doubt & suspicion. Who could it be? Is it Brian from accounting? Or Jessica from the dev team? Is it the boss? Who is this monster!?!?!?
Offices are f*cking tiring.

So, apparently something fell from the sky in Zagreb, Croatia, parts of a plane, or parts of a rocket / bomb. No full confirmation yet.

News outlets reporting that it โ€œallegedlyโ€ has Russian signage.

That would be a bit unfortunate, given that Croatia is in the NATOโ€ฆ.๐Ÿ˜ฌ
We will probably know more tomorrow what it actually is.

But it is definitely a very unusual event, during a sensitive time. ๐Ÿ˜•
Ok look at this, it has the same markings and bolts as the pictures above. Could the Zagreb thing be a Tu-141?

Having grown up in Yugoslavian war as a child, many things I see play out in Ukraine, are almost the same pattern in terms of behaviour.

Here are some things to expect & what I remember doing and would do again if ever faced with war. ๐Ÿงต๐Ÿ‘‡
1. When there are talks about a potential war, start thinking of places outside of country you could go to.

Wars start quick โฐ & escalations usually are followed by a key event. In that moment, don't hesitate - leave.
2. โ—Always have your documents ready, passports, birth certificates & medical history.

Especially mental health history (as it can help you not get drafted).

Documents are crucial for any moving around. Prioritise having this ready at home.

My hunch is Putin does NOT plan to stop with Ukraine. Ukraine is the test. Trump probably gave Putin info he needed over those years to restart this.

I also have a hunch US troops left Afghanistan because they had intel about larger conflict coming up soon.
In addition, what we need to keep an eye on is - who will side with Russia?

Will China align? Or someone else? Will it be Turkey? Or even Hungary? Serbia?

It could flip some countries due to (mentally) unstable leadership.
The first clear ally "of a size/influence" to Russia will mark beginning to WW3.

Let's hope nobody aligns.

Iโ€™ve recently came to terms that as you improve your well-being, you will have to leave some, if not all friendships that you built earlier in life prior to change. ๐Ÿ˜•

This feels in particular true if you are changing class position & have less of a scarcity approach to life.
I used to think that if you invest time, money & effort in people, it would motivate for becoming more proactive & change outlooks + outcomes. And to some level it does.
But unless systems they are in support that change, majority just reverts back.
Iโ€™ve been very sensitive lately to negativity, anxiety & scarcity that certain friend units share together and have realised that for some it is the only operating mode. This perpetual reality of misery (often misplaced).

Today, we have decided that Chunkie as a company will not seek or take any investments.
We will not make any investor pitch decks anymore, & I will not meet with investors in the future.

Here is my why ๐Ÿงต๐Ÿ‘‡
1. Let's start with the basics - women do not get funding.

The statistics are so bad that the issue won't change during my life, as it is much worse than this industry is willing to talk about.

It is an issue of class, wealth, racism & sexism.

2. Marginal winners of funding are only those with friendships & relationships inside the circle.

Fundraising as a woman outside of that circle is a dehumanising & invalidating experience. Especially in the stage, we are in. I refuse to put myself through this anymore.

Letโ€™s talk boundaries. ๐Ÿ‘Œ
Few years ago had a collegue I decided to distance from as the friendship ran its course. They kept texting me every few months despite me telling them that at this moment I need time to focus on family stuff. ๐Ÿงต
As I gave 2 instances of explanations where I said that I canโ€™t give attention & taking time to focus on family matters, they persisted to contact me from text to Linkedin. I was short in initial answers and reiterating the same msg that at this time I am focusing on family.
At this point, I started getting annoyed. I thought about boundaries & when it is appropriate for someone to back off. How many signals need to be sent & is it truly on us to be unpleasant or directly crushing to maintain our right to step back?
