Oh yeh and clinically depressed because I had an interview yesterday which I thought went well, but go a rejection e-mail...with no feedback
damn good luck
I'm not that down actually. It was a positively huge company with an amazing pay packet and they get 9000 applicants for 500 graduate places.
I'm glad I even got to the interview stage I guess. I hate that I never got feedback though
At least you got the call. I graduated in sept.. and I have been looking to get out of my very low paying job since then. ANd in that time my life has crashed around me.
hello asylum.. I'm dragging myself in here.. can't really venture too far
This is my second interview. The first one told me they would give me feedback but never got back to me with it. Even after I e-mailed them saying I have an interview elsewhere and it would help. I don't know what I did wrong and if I did it again
I still have one interview to hear back from. It's the only time in my life that I've used 'who I know' instead of 'what I know' to try and get somewhere...but increasingly that seems to be the way forward.
Try and look for a family member or old college freind who is living the dream and get in somewhere. You'll get there!
Going on a date tonight.. Hope this one doesn't blow up
Wow.. What a fucking night! She turned out amazing.. sadly, I realize why I get my heart broken. I charm these girls too hard, too fast, and end up feeling to bad and sticking around.
Side note, to the guys with the 'when do I move issue', if she's smiling, giggling, and rubbing shoulders with you, tell her a secret.. You'll get your kiss.
Had a 10 min. make out session (I feel like I'm 16 again) with this girl when I dropped her off.. First time meeting up with her, first time 'date'. Hookup from my cousin. DAMN IT FEELS GOOD TO BE SINGLE AGAIN.
Date 2, mini golf and go karts, I told her sometime next week.. Didn't want to make her any form of priority, she digged it.
glad to hear everything went well
I barely passed the 3rd subject in a 5 subject series regarding my thesis for college (prof just cut us some slack... told us to make up for it on the next subject). That being said, for the first time since i got into this particular college (about 7 trimesters), I am no longer eligible to be on the dean's list. yay.
my less-than-a-month summer break has finally started. i'm going to try and spend most of it sleeping and not doing work for my thesis since i'm incredibly tired.
i no longer sleep during nights. i've had so many all-nighters last term, i just got used to not sleeping till it's already 6am in the morning. i have no one to talk to from 2am to 6am, i sometimes feel like im going to go apeshit from that lol. i want to write on a journal or something but as you can see i write like an elementary school student hoo hoo
yeah, and i have a tendency to kill threads whenever i post on them. so here's to a new asylum off-topic thread *thumbs up*
p.s. don't take this seriously, haven't had good sleep in weeks, so fucking bored it's 4am here and i have no one to talk to
at this rate this thread el be longer than the last one
Hello my little lovies
No updates on the computer yet- it's looking like it will never be returned. BOO.
End of the semester is on the 25th and looks like I'm going to have to take an 'F' and retake the class later. Good part is, this will only temporarily fuck up my 4.0 since retaking the class will erase that F and leave an A in its place. Bad part is, that class costs nearly $2,000 which I will have to figure out how to pay for again. But who knows, maybe the judge will make those kids pay me back for my class along with all my stolen goods. We shall see...
Hope you guys are great!! I miss you tons and I can't wait to get back on OT and chat with you
Oh yeah, and way to go Dreams!! Back on the dating scene Good luck out there, Ace. Women are fucking crazy.
yeah, I'm learning this now. Said girl tried coming over my house at 1:15AM last night and didn't want no for an answer.
dang i gotta retake a class as well what are the odds
man, i feel so depressed.
why is life all about money.
Finances make anyone else depressed? maybe it's just me ...
Because our society pushes anything/everything involving money/consumerism.
- You have to make $150K+ a year to be successful (depending on your location)
- You have to drive a ____________ to get respect
- You have to have a $29K+ wardrobe to be acknowledged
- You have to have a 160" TV if you want anyone to come over
- You have to have a cell phone, iPod and GPS unit to find your way in this world
- Your house must be at least 10K sq. ft.
- Don't forget the waterfall pool and marble hot tub
- You must be accompanied by a man/woman who is no less than a 10 (get ready to drop some coin)
- You should be able to afford to travel to exotic locations on a moment's notice
- Why settle for a $20 meal at Chili's when you can spend $750 at ______________________(fill in name of some high end restaurant)
You get the idea. We've had it shoved in our faces that without certain material possessions we are no one and will get nowhere.
We have forgotten about the simple pleasures; we refuse to put any effort into learning or gathering anything information, we want it all now; we want to have instant gratification instead of reaping the reward of hard work. We have been brainwashed to believe that you must have and spend money to be happy. Do anything else like reading, painting, writing poetry etc. is now considered "having to much time on [your]hands."
I think money is important to an extent, you have to have at least some to pay bills, eat, clothe yourself and get from point A to point B. We can no longer be content with just the basic needs being met, we must have more. And frankly, when one is living for the sake of keeping up with the Jones's, one is going to become very unhappy very quickly.
In my opinion if you have a roof over your head, clothes on your back, food on the table, and positive relationships with the people in your life...you're doing way better than 99% of the population
I thought Chili's was high end.....fuck.
