Nobody ever asks me how my day went so this is a thread for days when you had an interesting happening but nobody that wants to hear it.

I already wrote about it in another thread but I had to do a self haircut today to save my hair. This is after I had to fucking reapply to school just to get my id number. Luckily I showed up 2 hours early otherwise that would have been awful.

Well first I had to wait in line for like 7 years and then when I got to the front she's like well you have to reapply. So after I filled out the 4 million pages of the application I had to get in line again for another 2 centuries.

I played Windwaker and wrestled a toddler at the same time. Also my friend got mad at me cause I can't set her up with a dude. Like I know any guys who want a crazy lady in her 30's whose biological clock is going all haywire. I applied for school somewhere in there too.

This've been mainly a sad day. First I finished an art I had spend over 2 weeks on. Though that's a good thing. Right after I finished it, my dad's GF got a phonecall that her daughter's cat (That were in their home as they're on a visit here 'till wednesday) Had been roadkilled. So even when it doesn't really concern me in person, was hard to see the 12 year old girl take that hit.

So at work they give us like this amount of money we need to make every day and mine is always ridiculously high. They said its because Im the only one in my department thus I have to make all the money. Anyway thats bullshit so I told them to just account for the amount of hours I'm there and they agreed because frankly I think they are scared of me because of some serial killer jokes I told a while back.

Anyway they cut my budget in half but ironically I ended making twice as much money anyway. Oh well.

Does it mean you are going to make the double of your pass budget?

jubeh
08-12-2012, 10:00 PM
No I made my old budget.

This is cool though because making double one day pretty much means I can slack off another day and be okay.

jubeh
08-13-2012, 09:49 PM
My day was okay. I missed budget by 500 dollars because a guy jacked my sale but he didn't know he was doing it and actually thought he was helping me. Oh well.

I'm being trained to sell cameras and stuff. I kind of have a crush on the chick that's training me but I dont think I will act on it.

I stayed late to help out which is p uncharacteristic for me but my mood seems to be better in general. Probably because I'm waking up earlier.

So this morning before work I realized my pants were all messed up so I figured I would just go by Target and pick some up on my way to work. Well at Target all the ones they had were too small or in a weird color (we have to wear khakis) so I begrudgingly went to wal-mart but all the pants were too big. I found some that were slightly higher than my size thinking it wouldn't be a huge deal but they were fucking gigantic and I didn't have time to return them to find a smaller pair so I just went to work in massive pants. Nobody really noticed at all or at least nobody said anything but still.

Man so today I was walking around and I overheard someone singing Willie Bean by Michael Jackieson and he got all the lyrics wrong, and being the massive fan of Michael Jackieson that I am I got super pissed off. I was about ready to tell this guy off but luckily I kept my cool and sang the correct version to myself. Willie Bean isn't my girlfriend, He's a guy who's like is that my gun?

Worked 6:30pm - 10:30pm yesterday then 6:30am - 10:30am this morning. Fucking tired. Plus we had a visit and it was kinda like it was all on me because I cad to clean the store last night and today was truck day so I was running around filling in all the empty spots in the store before corporate arrived. I guess I will see how well I did when I go in tomorrow at 4am. These early shifts are knocking a year off my life I'm sure.

I was still feeling pretty down today and it really affected my sales. My counterpart made about $5k and I only made $1k. Thats a p big a difference. I have great coworkers tho they knew something was up and talked to me and stuff but its hard to talk about when you dont really know what's wrong. Also this Camerawalls album is really picking me up when I listen to it I can't help but smile.

I'm still feeling lame but I'm ready for 2morrow.

album reviews are completely subjective i dont see why you're so upset over this.

toast
09-04-2012, 03:09 PM
dude, this is a quote from the actual review:


Centipede Hz, by comparison, feels like someone throwing a burrito on your windshield: The songs hit with a jolt, instantly splaying all their ingredients before you.

and all this "clatter" stuart berman is talking about is a reason why you need to listen to this album MULTIPLE TIMES. There are layers in each song that actually make sense if you're not a total dope. Like this is why I hate music review sites like pitchfork. Every reviewer is given a ton of albums they need to review, so they can't actually spend a good amount of time on one album, actually focusing on it and coming up with a good opinion. He even posted on /mu/ saying one of the reviewers that wanted to review cHZ couldnt, because she already had 8 albums she needed to write reviews for. srsly? It just bothers me, especially since new listeners to the album may get the wrong idea. ugh

Where to start... this day has both been good and bad.

Woke up late (bad)
Went on the computer to check updates and found out that Michael Clarke Duncan is dead (Bad)
Went to the subway, called a friend and then got to the subway train just in time before it left (good).
Had to call my friend several times as the subway blocked the signals, but ended up calling her at the station when I went out instead. (meh)
Then I went into gamestop and pre-ordered Tekken Tag Tournament 2 collectors edition. First time I'll play a tekken game on xbox... hope it's not too much of a downgrade as I'm used to playstation. (good)
Then I went to this shop called "Outland", where they sell all kinds of cool stuff like costumes, roleplaying games, fantasy/sci-fi books, comics, manga (in English and Japanese), Drawing books, lego, action figures... etc. There I brought this manga drawing book for references and hints I thought could come in handy. (good)
http://i.imgur.com/zqXbLl.jpg (http://i.imgur.com/zqXbL.jpg)

Next I took the subway back, this time I just didn't make it, so had to wait 15min for the next train(bad)
Came home tired and got annoyed by what sounded like a door getting shut! Found out it was the window at the kitchen that was blowing up and down, so closed it. Then I took some lasagne out to make ready to heat it, but found out I have to wait 2h before putting it in the oven... crist, will be late dinner today. (bad)
Then I checked facebook and found out the girl that lived close to here that has been gone missing for over a week, has been found dead... good she's found but sad she's dead. Couldn't expect more though. (bad)

So now I have to wait to make dinner while doing something random on my computer or xbox... either draw or play a game I suppose.

Got told that after we clean the crap outa my store I will get trained by a store manager to become an ASM! Fuck yea!

He wants me to learn all kinds of crap but I told him I knew how to do all that and he was like "riiiiight. I had a dude tell me that once and he was all talk." so I'm like watch me fool waaaaaatch. My merchandising manager who will hopefully become my store manager is like "dude once he starts he's going to be hella surprised that you do know all this stuff. He's going to be all like "Daaaaaayum! Where they been hiding you?" hahaha." so I'm optimistic about everything.

There's a woman in my life that plays me like a nintendo. It would be too simple to say that it's her accent. I have, like, this "thing" for accents -- which is to say if you have one I'll melt like an ice cream on mercury. But its much more than that.

She remembers things. Things about you. Think about this for a moment. Does anybody actually remember the shit you talk about ever? If you can answer that question with a yes I am jealous of you. Repeating things to people over and over has become somewhat of a weird inside-my-own-head joke. I tally it. I've had people repeat my own jokes back to me.

So there you have one insanely attractive quality compounded with the fact that she can somehow say exactly what you want to hear.

"You look like a completely different person!"

That was my aim.

"You should finish that thing I'd love to read it."

Nobody else wants to read it.

So I saw her at work today. No big deal I just tried to keep things awkward and end the conversation quickly. Well I say no big deal but it took a tremendous amount of willpower, and frankly I only think I survived because she was there with her dad.

A girl at the restaurant is struggling not to look at me. She's waiting for her friend to get out of the bathroom. We're facing each other coincidentally and she shuffles around with her keys trying to look occupied. I think about what my old friends would have made me do. I want to talk to her but I don't. I will never see her again.

At the grocery store I contemplate buying sushi while high school girls buy cases of beer. Are they high school girls? One of them has to be twenty-one. Some of them are dressed like Disney princesses.

I come home -- nobody says anything. James is home. Nothing new.

Yesterday was like..."The Revenge of the Ex GFs" or some shit. One ex 'caught' me at the grocery store with and I quote: "...that skanky ass trailer park ho...". This was all over a woman who's merely my friend and certainly does not live in a trailer (not that there's anything wrong with that) & definatelly not a ho. Another calls me out of the blue & wants to set up a vacation to 'catch up' & yet another called out of the blue just to let me know that she's been thinking about me even though I haven't seen or heard from her in years...I wonder if she's gotten fat...

Business casual!
Long sleeved collared shirt preferably in a blue but not a dark blue.
Tie is a must.
Slacks/dressy pants.
Nice shoes. Like what you'd see someone at a wedding wear. No tennies vans or anything of that nature.

When they ask you to tell them about yourself don't say your age relationship status or anything that will bias you to the job. Talk more about your work exp and what makes you a good fit for the position.

Banks are really close to being retail stores. They want to know that you can and will sell products and services all the time so if you have selling exp mention it. Highlight your customer service skills when you can.

If its a well known bank you can look up the pay, interview questions, hiring process, and job review at Glassdoor.com

I almost never go outside once I'm home from college, but I did earlier today, and it made me remember why I generally don't go outside. I started playing soccer with my dog before remembering that both of my ankles and wrists have tendon and ligament problems--essentially, I'm crippled.

And then I tripped over my dog and very nearly broke two fingers. They cracked and I still can't move them too well, but at least they didn't break.

Also, I got critiques on my stories. So, overall, an excellent day (not being sarcastic, actually).

I believe I'm getting crazier. This is the last day of work, and the fucking hardest. I have been working on some illustrations for a short film the pass weeks and now we are at a day to start shooting and I have 1/7 of all the things they requested. I'm still working on the comic cover, I have to make a 2 pages comic sex scene (I haven't even started this part), I need to make 3 more sketches of a character, I must finish the illustrations of 2 other characters, which I only have the models I did before. And I have to finish all this tomorrow. The worst part of all this work and mind decrepitude is that I might not get payed because the institute has no policy on paying to illustrator, animators, artists, etc. They can only pay to actors, so the only joy I might have at the end is my name on the credits, and trust me, those are going to be the slowest credits I have ever going to see; I'm going to rewind each time I see my name, I'm going to stop the image, I'm going to stare at it and I'm going to laugh and masturbate the shit out of my without even carrying about other people on the room, you know why? because I fucking earn it.

Yesterday (woulda put this up last night but I was sleepy) I was supposed to show my Merch Manager how to play bingo but she flaked because her wife wouldn't watch her son. I went anyways with my mom and paid for half of her bingo. Then her stupid boyfriend shows up and she goes and gives him beer money. He knew better than to come inside or anywhere near me. So at that point I'm pissed because why am I paying for her if she has money to be giving that drunk anything?
Bingo hadn't even started yet and it was all going down hill.
So the first game starts and the stars start to align and I need two numbers! Then one of them shows up and all I need is N-36! And then the fire nat. . . some one called bingo on n-41 with n-39 in the window.
Oh what's that? You say it's invalid??? They got it wrong? I still have a chance?!?!?
OMFG WHAT'S THAT IN THE MONITOR?!?!? IT'S N-36 MY NUMBER!!! It hasn't been called yet so I silently rip my paper off to show that I won. I can hear the caller start to say "your next number is" then the bitch who bingoed on n-41 has a floor helper stop the game because she thinks she has it.
I could have slit my wrist. She did have it. But so did some one else so she had to share it hahah.

Now I'm thoroughly bummed out and stressing because work is being kinda inconsistent because of the new boss and her high demands so in my head I can be termed any day now. It hasn't been a good month and I'm also the only person in this house that does anything for Halloween as far as the kids go. I buy them their costumes every year (one of my sisters is born the day after Halloween and my grandfathers birthday was Halloween and his favorite holiday so it's tradition sorta to do it up) and I'm not going to be able to afford it and my parents are like they don't even need that so it's fine just leave it. That money could have helped so much right now.
AND THEN I WON!! It was like half way thru the night but I finally won! I won alone so I got $250 and was so happy I even gave my mom $30. I was so close on one other game after that and my number stayed in the window again but it stung less because I had finally won.
Then I get home and my two little sisters are being bitches and I don't have to buy them shit for Halloween after all. But my kid is still deciding between iron man batman the Incredible Hulk or Ash from Pokemon (he has the hulk hands and a pikachu backpack already so I'm rooting for one of the last two) so I'm going to let him pick today and the other two can make a costume out of wtf ever now.

Bacon_Barbarian
10-21-2012, 10:59 AM
Mmmm.

Because what started out as a fun outing to the local coffee joint with my friends after the last home football game turned into a giant fucking mess. People outside of my normal social group were with us for some reason, and I didn't like that, so me and two of my friends went on a walk. One of these friends is a girl, Julie, that I am sort of developing feelings for, but not really, the other is one of my older friends, Heath, who sort of pisses the Julie off, but once again, not really.

So anyway, we're out on a walk for half an hour or so and we come back to the coffee joint and less people are there, so I decide to go in and grab a coffee. At this point, the Julie decides that we should go to the park because she wants to go swinging. Sure, whatever, that's fun. The three of us are walking outside when the girl I used to like, Heather, calls me back to the table where she and some of my other friends are sitting and Heath comes with me. She says something about how Julie is impulsive and acts like a four year old. Even though they're both pretty good friends. I'm like fuck this shit and I decide to leave to go swinging. As I'm walking to meet up with the other girl, Heath leaves Heather and joins up with me and tells the Julie that Heather called her an impulsive four year old and tells me my other friend, Joe, who had been sitting in the coffee place called me whipped.

At this point both Julie and I are pissed off. Julie decides she wants to go home, so she does. I go back to the coffee joint. At this point Heather is leaving and I start to chew her head off about how people shouldn't externalize negative thoughts about friends. Heather justifies her actions saying that Julie'll just get over it in a day or two. So not only is she being a bitch, she's manipulating her friends. Other than telling me this, she's a fucking brick wall, and she leaves to go to her car. At this point I go in and yell at Joe, in a public place, where people who know us as people who goes to their school, but don't know us are. Anyway, sufficient to say I yelled about some pretty personal stuff and royally pissed him off.

So yeah. At this point Joe and I are OK, I guess. But I'm still really mad at Heather. As are other people. And she really needs a therapist, so I can't be too mad at her because part of what I'm mad about is outside her hands.

I was just seething with rage at the time. As were several of my friends. And my friends being angry and feeling like shit, makes me angry and feel like shit. But more.

Looking back on it, it's mainly just petty drama. But goddam I was pissed off at the time.

I also thought I was probably never going to talk to Joe ever again, and he's been one of my better friends for the last four years, so that was disheartening. But we went out Saturday and got [redacted] and now everything is chill.

I run off my interpersonal reactions. Family dies, that's chill ... Although being a pallbearer SUCKS! Parents get divorced, fuck if I know, I was 10. Friends get pissy with eachother. WORST DAY EVER!!!!11!1!!1

My day thus far is surreal. Closed a savings account that I'd set up to automatically deposit loot from my checking because I need that. Checked my balance today was $127.32 in the red...

Did the math, explained to customer service rep about closing the other account (politely), let her do the math, her math's fucking wrong (because she kept forgetting to refund the overdrafts...PLUS the cash from the transactions I made over the weekend) & now I gotta go down to my branch after work and threaten to close my checking account if they don't get me my cheese.

(sigh):cat_whyyou:

Since I hate keeping $ on me, now I don't get to eat lunch either & I'm all distraught.

Shit, I got picked for a fencing tournament and my first opponent was one of the directors of the center. So I lost 8 - 4 on my first match and I kept doing a german grip so I got enough hits on my thumb to get it swollen again.

shoulda gone italian and smacked his ass

So I came home from work today to find every door and window in the house wide open, and was told that I was not allowed to go inside because apparently my mom had smelled gas. I'm tired, I'm hungry, I'm freezing, I'm bored, I really need to pee, and I only have 10 minutes of computer battery. Yaaay.

Got dragged all over the mall yesterday by a female friend. Almost a date, but not really at all. Also it was like I was the chick and she was the dude, as she bought me all sorts of crap. But she owed me $40. So.

Are there other things to life? I was under the impression this was the thread we posted about "what happened to us today" in. I guess I could talk about playing videogames and shit, but that's boring.

Just got done with my second art history quiz.
You have to come prepared knowing the artist, name of the piece, appox. date it was made, and location, sometimes medium, and also their meaning/what they're about.

I fucked up bigtime on my first quiz, scoring a 54/100, or 45%
My messed up memory meant all that studying immediately went to waste once I hit the door. Even when I whipped out and studied my flashcards hardcore 15mins before it started, once the screen lit up and the lights went off- POOF- what the fuck was that again?

The same thing happened this go around, and I tried to come more prepared, as I made more flashcards and then made a recording on my iPod of me going over the flashcards. I listened to this recording over and over as I skated to class, attempting to drill stuff into my head.

Test starts, and my brain gives me a quick "fuck you" then shuts. Down. Everything.
I remembered less than half of the material, and had an even harder time with the part where you have to do compare and contrast essays/explain what the pieces are about over 15mins.

I noticed that the teacher couldn't really see me where I was. I was cold, so I didn't bother taking the hood of my hoodie off before I walked in: I had it on all class, and never took my headphones out. I didn't notice this until I went to scratch my ear. I noticed some students had their phones out on the tables, not using them, duh, but they were out, and she wasn't paying much attention.

Being so frustrated, I quickly took out my iPod, found the recording I luckily had made earlier, and turned it on, effectively cheating. Do I think I'll still pass with a good grade? Fuck no, but I needed all the points I could get.

I have no regrets.
The End.

Edit: Fuck art history!

I guess there's school and shit, but really friends and family are the most important thing to me as they're what make me happy. Money, skills ... They don't really matter. I'm sorry you've lead such a life that you can't realize that.

I have yet to post an actual problem in this thread. Yeah, there was that thing last weekend, but as I admitted, looking back on it, that was just me being really angry at the time. As I am prone to do. Humans being emotional beings and all.


Not as boring as your social life.
I never asked for your cynical opinion. There is an English saying, and I'm sure a Spanish equivalent, that says "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." Learn it.

Is your art history teacher old? I'm asking this because this kind of praxis are mostly done by old teachers, while the younger ones find it ridiculous to do.

Also, you lost all my respect man.

I dunno how old she is, she's like middle-aged, really hyper and enthusiastic.


Also, zero fucks were given. I gave them all to that quiz.

I don't think you read the bottom when I said "I have no regrets."
Y'know what went through my head as I realized my brain had refused me access to all I had studied for, most likely due to anxiety issues, depression, and constant stress? That I didn't want to screw up as bad as I did on that last quiz, causing me MORE anxiety, depression, and stress.
The moral of struggle whether to cheat or not went out the window at that point.

Worrying about what people think about me, and the amount of respect lost through act of desperation and frustration is is non-existent.

We all deal with those stuffs, you are not the only one who struggles in classes, tests or quizzes. Or even the emotional depression provoked by the educational life, the social life, and life in general. Still, some people don't break on cheating. How do you know other people in that class room have it as bad as you, or worst, and they didn't cheat. How do you know out there is something struggling harder and they don't cheat it either.

Yes, if you are Machiavelli its right, you did what you had to do, but you also did what was morally wrong.

What I did was for me. It wasn't about anybody else, nobody else came to my mind.
This was an internal problem, and I solved it the most efficient way I could. Cheating is not killing, I didn't fill my car with extra NOS and twin turbo intakes so that I could beat out the dad of a kid with cancer in a race so that I could take the prize money for myself when he was going to use it for his child's treatments.

Morals are flexible, and vary with the individual and situation.
Now while you may be right that cheating is wrong. What would be even worse would be failing the class, having to retake it in the next semester, effectively cheating my mother, whom helped me get into the school I'm in, helps me with my financial aid, gives me a roof and food, and supports me.

I'd rather cheat the test and make it through than cheat my mother's efforts. And I did talk to her about what I did.
You do what you have to do. I don't feel morally conflicted. So why are you trying to make me feel so?

I don't get you sometimes, Clock.

@Tay: Well we had transferred right from the renaissance to the baroque period, and went over a bunch of stuff over the course of about a week and a half. We were given a minute to identify the artist, title, date, and location for 10 pieces. We were then given 6 minutes to write a paragraph or two on what a piece is about, including artist, title, date, and location.
Then there were two compare and contrast questions, which we also had to identify first. Then came vocabulary questions, about 8 of those. And an extra question, which I think I aced.
