Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

I drank a 6 pack, ordered some really decadent food, and am considering blowing off my assignment that's due tonight (I have an A+ and it's a negligible percentage of my grade)

even though it's really unhealthy i think these brief splurgy moments of releasing myself from severe stress is +ev mental healthwise.

I think the most important question is does this get you over 3k in calories?

It's all good. I was just trying, albeit unsuccessfully, to be funny.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

looks like @gregorio was right, found this review on yelp:

Quote:
I just used their roadside assistance service. The dispatcher was evasive about quoting me a price on a jump start but I finally got him to quote me about $80, which is fair. A van showed up, not even a towing service, jumped my car which took 5 minutes, charged me $144. What could I do? I was stranded.

I called the dispatcher to tell him that the price was ridiculous and they are taking advantage of stranded motorists. He answered back some scripted excuse saying that because of the rain it cost more.

Okay.....
i want to **** with these people somehow.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

Iíd simply pay it and be about my business. Call me a sucker if you like, but itís worth the difference in price to not suffer the psychic malaise of being furious with an ******* and wrecking several hours of my life.

Someone else mentioned AAA.

Having had a dozen tows on a previous car and no roadside assistance seems like a bad plan of action.

I donít have a good comparison though because I am pretty sure I have had roadside Assistsnce since I got my first driverís license.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

the old car was a piece of crap, this is (was) a newer one. it has a brand new engine in it, i don't anticipate any breakdowns.

I just think a yearly subscription for a thing I will likely never use is overrated. The tow company i eventually called is the one that AAA contracts work out to anyway. So if I have to get towed every ~2 years and it costs me 60 bucks a pop, that's better to me than some membership I'll never use.

Like i said my initial mistake was not using the company I always do. Idk why I did that.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

In my last web dev project i failed to implement the last 25% of it and wrote kind of a pathetic note in my readme file to the TA that apologized and explained I was feeling pretty overwhelmed with my schedule.

He gave me an A and said don’t worry, score’s just a number. I didn’t think that could work, lol

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

i am also kinda running out of money finally (have a ton of credit though, that's basically untapped) and feel i am running out of sanity.

i'm expending every single molecule of effort i have to keep my **** together this quarter and things are still getting away from me. my therapist said it's to be expected with the schedule i have that some things are going to slip but that i am doing fine. she just wants me to focus on passing but i think i can get all A's. I've skipped a few assignments here and there that are guaranteeing I maybe get a B or two in some of my classes but it's fine.

surprisingly doing very well academics wise. I somehow got a B+ on my only midterm and i didn't study for it really.

S has been really mellow for some reason, idk why. I blew her off tonight because I've been coding/drinking all day and am tired and have a headache now, and she was totally fine and not mad. usually that would trigger a blowup.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

i figured out a trick with S -

the more interest i show, the more room she gives me. almost to a bad degree. she told me i could bring a date to the wedding i'm officiating, lmao. She's been fine with me flaking on plans like the last 3 times.

the only thing that's changed is I've shown more interest/attention in her. Maybe that means she's feeling more secure about us, idk. It could also be a bad sign too for multiple reasons.

regardless, this is something i can take advantage of for sure. it's nice to get some breathing room. it's hard to juggle my insane schedule and make time for her, it gives me significant stress.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

No i did not know it has been broken again but that’s not too surprising. About a year ago a new pole glitch setup was discovered and darbian predicted there’d be new records. He proceeded to break his own record a few weeks later.

Since then it seems like it’s been quiet

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

I got down to like a ~5:18 last time i was playing a lot because i learned fast 4-2 and a few other tricks but it gets to a point where shaving time gets REALLY difficult. The level theyre on is like 1000 times even more removed from where im at. For them to go further theyre going to need to do insane things multiple times in one run just to save another frame rule.

Im not gonna say 4:55 is impossible but it might take multiple years and a lot of luck, and/or a new major discovery like we had last year.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

the "stacking M with a full house on board cackle"

i wish i could reproduce this laugh on command but i just can't.

basically i had lost this game, and my only chance was stealing one of his cards that he just had to slam down and immediately win the game. I think I had a 1/6 chance if it was even in his deck still. I can't remember what odds it was.

Re: Jmakinmeangry's debauchery and general idiocy blog

I am getting way behind on school.

Vegas kicked my ass. I was hungover monday, and caught a cold. Not surprising because of how little sleep I've been getting and how dirty vegas is.

So I did nothing monday/tuesday/wednesday except stay in bed and get legend in hearthstone. Went to work a few times, made an effort.

So now I have a final next thursday, major project due tomorrow, 2 huge assignments due saturday that i havent begun. Last project for my algorithms course is due wednesday and my last web app project is due thursday (same day as a different final).

Something isn't getting finished. i already know it. I've been leveraging the fact I have had all A+'s going into week 7ish to selectively skip assignments I was too tired to do or were too frustrating. So now I'm looking at all B+'s/B's if i finish everything else. This is fine.

If I skip anything else, I'll get C's. I'm probably out of D territory but technically I could still graduate with anything above a 1.5 GPA.

My partner for my algorithms course is fine with skipping the final project. He hasnt helped with the first two so it would be all me - i don't really understand it. If we dont turn it in, we get a C in the class. I may actually do this. I'll make an attempt at it, but if it's going slowly or looks like it's gonna be a hassle I'll abandon it quickly.
