I'm next in line for management too! I have my own apartment, it may be small, but I'm making rent each month so that's all that matters to me. :P

Congratulations - always nice to hear when someone makes it. I never liked the idea of paying rent, so someday I hope to get a place of my own, that belongs to me personally, rather than somewhere that I need to remove the shelves from when I get kicked out of and even though it was not my choice to move, I still have to make good.

Indeed. I've got 3 so far today, so things continue to look good, for now.

It went well yesterday as well, with what looks like some blammable crap there first thing, too :)

I move. You have to when you're playing cricket.
I speak of your presence in the Portal. Your movements in the physical world are of little concern to me. :P

My movements in the physical world are tied inextricably to those within the Portal.

And now, the handiwork that I've been doing these past few days. The desk and laptop have been there for a while, but having added the shelves and the massive amounts of books and CDs there, I can firmly say that this is my new "Creative Corner"

I haven't quite made it yet, but with yearly raises and chance for performance bonuses I'm in a position where if I don't move up to management in the next few years I'm not stuck between a rock and a hard place. I can't quite afford a house yet so I have to pay rent. I guess if I could fine a house where I could make small payments for the next 30 years I could swing it, but then I have all these taxes and interest to worry about. I'm not ready for that.

I have a nice one bedroom, one bath apartment, and a little car that if it holds up for a few years I may just make it.

That bookshelf is awesome by the way. I can't do anything to change the apartment like that because I'll lose my security deposit.

I'm good now, gotten over the hard stuff. Everything was taken from me financially, but you can't take much from someone who doesn't own anything. :P Everything is moving in the right direction. Even my football season with the Broncos!

Is not happy with how some members of my family treat me over certain thoughts. I had the misfortune to see the former headteacher of the terrible high school I went to and when my dad was speaking to me about that witch, I said that I'd rather not remember who she was and he was trying to shove his thoughts down my throat by saying "She wasn't a bad person". Does he not remember that I was bullied in that shithole and no-one was even willing to help me out?! The fact that they insist I should respect them in any way is sickening. It didn't help me that night when earlier before my dad was wanting me to have my hair short. These reasons alone killed my mood for the night and it was really too bad since I wanted to enjoy myself for my nan's 75th birthday. You're not going to win me over if you start mocking my life throughout the night as well.

Thankfully I am invited to a new year party in Liverpool so I can stay the fuck away from my family. After last time they are the last people that I want to celebrate new year with.

Listening to:

...Nothing, actually. The USB cable for the external hard drive packed it in so I now have to wait for a replacement. I only got the new power cable for it yesterday. I suppose after five years the cables have moved about a lot and they have been used well. External hard drive still works well which is amazing considering how many bad stories you might come across about them. Thankfully the iPod is still usable so it's a matter of using that for the time being.

So, if I understand you correctly, you averaged around 40 icons everyday. Not too shabby. ;)

On my better days I was making 100-200 icons a day!

So if you need to get someone arrested, you must let them attack you and steal your possessions.

I can't care at all.
But the media. They need SOMETHING to write about. Even if it is complete bullshit.

I'd much rather have asthma then eczema. I highly doubt I'll ever get rid of it so I'm stuck with it for the rest of my life.... Why am I still alive?

I was looking through my profile just now and I happened to notice that little "Other Favorites" box down that's down at the bottom of your favorites page. It dawned on me that it was the same shit I wrote over 8 years ago when I first made this account, thus making it the only part of my profile to remain completely unchanged since its creation. (That even includes my alias itself, which I used to change all the time, back when you could do so at will.) :P

3 more so far today! Funny how they seem to come and go in cycles...

My movements in the physical world are tied inextricably to those within the Portal.

I suppose movement is necessary when interacting with a computer. :P I tend to separate the digital world from the physical when thinking about people chat with online, though. I would probably think differently if I actually knew the people here irl.

Looks nice, man. I'm digging the color! I've been doing some remodeling, myself. I just got a new carpet installed and a new bedroom set delivered. Not to mention a 37" flatscreen, which looks absolutely badass in my bedroom. (It is a huge upgrade from the 26" I had before.) :D

I have no problems with the Broncos, but I'm not a big Peyton Manning fan, or Eli for that matter. (I live in New England -shouldn't be too hard to figure out why.) :P

You'll get there - you have a decent showing of having some sort of long-term game plan.

I have a nice one bedroom, one bath apartment, and a little car that if it holds up for a few years I may just make it.

I might need to get a new car, as the one I have is slightly thirsty - 50 mpg, when I know of cars out there that can do 80. To put it in refuelling terms, one tank a week becomes almost a tank a fortnight.

That bookshelf is awesome by the way. I can't do anything to change the apartment like that because I'll lose my security deposit.

Yeah, but that's what my friends like about their landlady - they speak to her and she lets me do shit like that to her house - they like being long term tenants and she likes having long-term tenants. Keep everyone happy.

Adding furniture helps to tone down the colour somewhat. Hence the canvas on the otherwise bare wall on the right of shot...

I'm satisfied with a 32" flatscreen for the bedroom. Given that I'm hoping to move out soon, I'll have to get a bigger one for the living room :P

We don't know, so I think that this was where the churches came to agree on, thus it's when is celebrated, regardless of actual fact. Of course, he was probably black, for all we know :P

There is never anything good that comes out of bullying. If it's left ignored, things will only get much worse. That was the cause of some school shootings in the past and while this may not be the case for every country, it only just shows.

I also will never understand why parents care so much about the haircut of their children. Especially when they are in their 20's already. >_>

My dad is a piece of shit fascist, that's why.

Well buddy, I may have to start saving up in the new year if I am in need of a new laptop. I've bought a cooling pad for it so if it still fails with gaming performance then I will have to look into getting a new laptop.

I'd be the same at this point. If a friend of mine becomes a victim of bullying, I won't take any shit from it because there's a good chance everyone else will turn a blind eye on it.

My car (a 12 year-old piece of shit) gets around 20 to 25 and I thought that was okay. I'm sure you drive more than I do, with your commute to work. 50 mpg is still pretty damn good, though.

I started thinking differently when I attended a few meets. Now people practically expect me to show up :P

*Is Jealous*

Adding furniture helps to tone down the colour somewhat. Hence the canvas on the otherwise bare wall on the right of shot...

Yeah, I've noticed that, too. The furniture I bought ended up being a lot bigger than I anticipated, so I'm seeing a lot less of the walls now. (yay for buying furniture online without seeing it in the showroom first.) LOL

I'm satisfied with a 32" flatscreen for the bedroom. Given that I'm hoping to move out soon, I'll have to get a bigger one for the living room :P

Definitely. We got a 46" in our living room, though it's like 8 years old at this point. With this new one I got in my room I can play games on my bed at the other side of the room and still feel like I'm close to the TV! It's probably the most TV I could manage in here without looking totally ridiculous. :P

Yeah, that's a fantastic achievement if you can manage it.

I logged my stats again this morning -It was just a fluke! ;_;

Happy 2013 to all! Despite a very rough moment with the party I was at, I enjoyed myself overall. Stayed up so late I was actually able to get back home at 9 in the morning all the way from Liverpool. I'm still glad I celebrated the new year with my friends and would like to see us having a great time like that again but the end of 2013 is a long way off. For now, January is looking to be a good month. Some good metal releases and of course, the London meet. That's a good way to kick off the new year.

Thanks to:

I had various drinks last night. Had myself drinking Jack Daniel's and vodka shots (as part of our drinking games) as well as some Stella.

Yeah, we had a few of those cases in Germany. And what do people do? Blame fucking VIDEOGAMES...

I also will never understand why parents care so much about the haircut of their children. Especially when they are in their 20's already. >_>
My dad is a piece of shit fascist, that's why.

Well, I can't really argue about that, since I don't know him. ^^

So if you need to get someone arrested, you must let them attack you and steal your possessions.
In the USA you can shoot someone if he just sets a foot on your land. And then you can say: "It was selfe denfese!".
I'd much rather take America's logic than Britain's logic for this any day of the week.

Yeah, but only in this case. :P

The media can keep talking about recession.
The media should just stop with the extrema. Either, something is "THE BEST EVER!!!!1111" or it's the "WORST THING EVER!!!!11111". There's only black and white and no grey.
But I like EXTREME!

I would much rather have a more balanced news coverage. In 2012 there was a lynch mob, because the media declared a young man as a rapist and killer of a little girl... the police could convice those people to go home. And in the end, the young man was innocent. This is just unbelievable.

There you have it. Humans suck!
In that one aspect. But I don't see any cultural achievements from dragons anywhere. TAKE THAT YOU PUNY DRAGON!
We breathe fire, we fly... What do you humans do again?

We kill your kind as we like. HA!

Shut up and get your own damn money!
I do. But I have to spend it on other things. I bought a floppy-emulator for my Amiga just the other day, haha. That thing really rules. It let's you put various amiga disks on an SD card and then you can load the games and programmes from there. WIN!
Well buddy, I may have to start saving up in the new year if I am in need of a new laptop. I've bought a cooling pad for it so if it still fails with gaming performance then I will have to look into getting a new laptop.

There you have it. I have to save up as well.

I wonder what I would have done if I got bullied in school, I have changed as a person in the last 5 years so I think I would have actually took it sadly. I seriously hate when people get bullied, I would never stand for it now, I would fuck shit up if I found out one of my friends got bullied.

I was bullied when I was a child. Weighing in at about 90 pounds and going into 7th grade it wasn't a good thing. I had very few friends and I was an easy target to get picked on. I took it upon myself to make it end. I joined some sports teams and became dedicated to the weight room. I graduated my senior year weighing around 240 pounds, held almost all of the schools lifting records, was an all star athlete, and made tons of friends. I then remembered my roots, where I came from and made sure that I protected those who couldn't. I literally pulled kids off of other kids that were getting beat on or bullied in school, warned them, etc... I was friends with everyone and it really made a difference. Granted it was a small school, but you need people like that for things to get better.

Not everyone can, but if you're capable you have to take these things into your own hands. Expecting an adult or teacher to do this stuff for you is ignorant and lazy in most cases. Especially when there really isn't anything they can do.

I get to start the 12th officially. Next week I'm still working my old job, but get paid the new wage. That works for me just find. I get two weeks shadowing someone, then I'm set free by myself.


I have a nice one bedroom, one bath apartment, and a little car that if it holds up for a few years I may just make it.
I might need to get a new car, as the one I have is slightly thirsty - 50 mpg, when I know of cars out there that can do 80. To put it in refuelling terms, one tank a week becomes almost a tank a fortnight.

That's better than any car I've even heard of... Mine gets around 30 mpg and I only fill it up once every 2-3 weeks for $35.

That bookshelf is awesome by the way. I can't do anything to change the apartment like that because I'll lose my security deposit.
Yeah, but that's what my friends like about their landlady - they speak to her and she lets me do shit like that to her house - they like being long term tenants and she likes having long-term tenants. Keep everyone happy.

We passed up on a small house that would literally let us do anything as long as we asked, but it needed too much work to make really nice. It was livable, but we just wanted something move in ready with no work. Plus it was $100 cheaper a month and that money was all I was really worried about when I had such a poor job to start with.

Metal-Therapy - I quoted you, but I'm on my ipad and I accidentally x'd it out before I pasted it. :P Oh well...

I mentioned that I hated the Patriots with a passion, especially Tom Brady, the fragile childlike man. I'll have another miserable football season when the Patriots beat the Broncos in the playoffs. Eli on the other hand. Someone hit him too hard with the stupid stick.

I thought it was some kind of mutual agreement that he was born on the 24th.
We don't know, so I think that this was where the churches came to agree on, thus it's when is celebrated, regardless of actual fact. Of course, he was probably black, for all we know :P
Yeah, it's highly unlikely that he looked as white as he's displayed on some pictures.

I think it was said about Michael Jackson being "similar" to Christ, but even as a hardcore fan of his, I'd not get drawn into that so easily.

Maybe not a killer but it sure as hell doesn't make life enjoyable when its at its worse forms.

It prevented me from swimming as a kid and as an ex-girlfriend of mine had Psoriasis, which is similar, though an auto-immune condition, or so I understand.

You're in America, where gas is cheap and people never cared about having to drive hundreds of miles. Cars have never been designed to make even 60 mpg, where now there are certain cars on British roads that have been tested to 80+ mpg. I want to be able to do that.

I prefer making the move straight from one to the other, rather than having a week's break in between the two. I took a week off when I left the supermarket to start for the house builder, mainly because I'd been treated like shit and I was just a lazy bastard. Between the housing and now, I had three days, which got me sorted before Xmas with the new place.

I have a nice one bedroom, one bath apartment, and a little car that if it holds up for a few years I may just make it.

I've got a 10 gallon tank, that takes over 60 pounds to fill, let's call it $100 for argument's sake. That's about a quarter of my weekly wage on fuel.

Oh and a VW Passat has been tested to 84 mpg or 1,626 miles from one tank.
