Incorrect. That's the nature of stupid people. If you're dating a normal girl there is no stupidity and games like this. On to the next one kid.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

The owner called me when I was walking in between classes this morning and we talked for about 15 mins.

He was very receptive and wanted my honest opinion on what the problems were, I tried to explain the best I could without disparaging my boss too hard.

He told me he had talked to my boss already and they were going to work on solutions to the problems and told me he valued my input and wanted to hear more in the future if things needed addressing, so I guess that went as well as it could have. He also said he really wanted to keep me there if he could.

I'm fully aware my boss might know and I may be a target from now on, but right now the crew is in pretty complete solidarity and we have the big boss's ear now so I should be fine.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

Huge red flag that he said he talked with your boss and that they are going to "work on solutions". Your boss cannot stay. If he stays, he will resent you and everyone else who spoke out, and he will eventually turn that resentment into action. He has to go.

You already figured out how to deal with your girl when she bailed on you with the steaks. Just keep doing that and she'll fall into line. Don't put up with her **** and she won't keep giving you ****. She'll also respect you more for not putting up with her ****.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

yea, it's for sure a bad outcome but one I can't really do anything about. I got to the owner a day too late but I doubt it would've changed much.

There's already signs he's taking it out on people who spoke out. Oh well. i don't think that route will pan out very well for him, and he is actually a moron so I am 100% confident he'll **** this up somehow.

regardless, my software job search has begun in earnest now so I only need to last 6-9 months there anyway which shouldn't be hard.

S sent me a kind of strange message today apologizing if she said or did anything to make me feel bad about myself lately, and that she really appreciates me buying the small stuff when we go out. She also said she doesnt care if I keep smoking or not or if I lose weight.

she told me a month ago she gets really mood swingy during 2 weeks before her period so maybe that's what was going on this week. idk. it was a sweet gesture though.

We went to my school gym last night and it was fun. I can bring her there as a guest for $5/day and we can play racquetball and stuff which I really love so she wants to keep going with me. I'm going to start hitting weights. I did 30 mins of pretty intensive cardio last night without dropping dead so I might be in better shape than I thought I was.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

So, I accidentally enrolled in a graduate level class. My quarter is going to be really really hard I think. So far I think I’m staying on top of it but ****.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

I’ve implemented “extreme tryhard protocol” for this quarter:

- no missing lectures
- no alcohol on school nights
- notes every lecture
- read material before every lecture
- sit in the very front so i dont get distracted by my phone

It seems to be working so far

Oh man, smart phones didn't exist when I was in school. Can't imagine I'd be able to sit through a lecture without reading 2p2 the whole time.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

yea I have a problem with my phone, even outside of class I am constantly on it.

2p2/hearthstone was a big distraction in class, which led to me not paying attention, which led to me asking myself the question "Why go to class?" which led to me not going at all.

My main chunk of classes is from 8am - 11am which is my most alert, focused time generally, so that's good. Later in the day classes are the worst for me. I absolutely cannot pay attention.

If I sit in front and am on my phone, I feel like it is rude to the professor, so I am on it less.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

just got slapped with a $600 hospital collections bill from last summer i forgot to pay.

damn. I gotta build my embedded systems project today but cant summon the willpower.

on days like this I never know how to motivate myself and end up drinking inevitably.
