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.
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.

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.

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?

As far as I know, eczema is not a killer... Just irritating as fuck.

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

I'm up to a total of 18 Blams in 4 days. Woo! 1,247 Blams in a year...

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.

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

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"
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

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

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

so humans really have a shitty life span...

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'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

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

I'm going again on the 18th. London meet IX, if I recall.

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 bought some from IKEA and made the mistake of buying one wardrobe that was only one door, despite buying two doors for it...

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

I've seen these new OLED televisions that LG have just launched. Paper thin and energy efficient, the problem is the price of £6,300

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 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 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.

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.

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.

Darn.

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 suppose a team's going to have it's fair share of haters when they've been as dominate as the Patriots have, for as long as they have. I've been a Pats fan since the mid 90's, back in the days of Bill Parcells and Drew Bledsoe, so it's not like I jumped on the bandwagon yesterday or anything.
As far as the playoffs go, a Brady v Manning rematch is more than likely in the works. Should be quite the game, if it goes down that way.

Gas isn't cheap here, though I will admit it is way cheaper than the UK. I found this site and was appalled at what some countries are paying at the pump. Damn.

My external hard drive is operational again! Those cables shall last a very long so who knows how long the hard drive itself will live for but I'll only ever need something with more space than a capacity of 320 GB if I am getting really cramped on space but for the time being I have 124 GB of free space.

We just sung The Final Countdown throughout the, well, countdown of the new year. We sang through it but it was worth it. From being alone in the streets at the very first second of 2012 to this for 2013, that's by far a huge improvement for my new year celebrations. Will definitely like to party with friends for the new year again. I just hope some douche of an ex-bouncer doesn't try to turn things sour next time. :P

I heard about those problems. It's bad enough you get all that censorship bullshit over there.

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

And thankfully you don't. I just hope you don't have a dad that tries to tell you how you should look, act, etc. I only wonder how much I could take from him before I get to a point where a police officer/court case has to be considered.

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

That is true. I don't want to think they're doing everything wrong, though as I can appreciate the whole place for what they brought.

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.

If anything, 2011's news was more over the top but then again, shit like a tsunami in Japan and a riot in England happened so....

We breathe fire, we fly... What do you humans do again?

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.

Thankfully I don't have to worry about getting a new laptop soon. The cooling pad puts all troubles with TF2 behind me. Still, it might help to look into funding a new one and make this an ongoing thing over the next two years since I feel by 2015 the laptop will be a bit behind the times so an upgrade with a brand new laptop would help.

It's not that it's lazy, it's a duty teachers should have to ensure students are not under stress. If you attempt to take the law in your own hands, you only get threats of being arrested or have that actually happening to you. Last time I tried to hit someone for bullying me, the college only threatened me that I would be arrested the next time that happened. I'm just glad I left that shithole as that place enough put a dent in my life.

Gas isn't cheap here,

It's all relative ;)

though I will admit it is way cheaper than the UK. I found this site and was appalled at what some countries are paying at the pump. Damn.

We're tied for 4th in the most expensive Diesel, though I did just fill up for £1.28 a litre, which helped. Discount coupons from the supermarket really do help me :)

You're right. I just can't say gas is cheap here when I know people who drive a lot and are actually effected by it. (Luckily, I am able to keep my time behind the wheel to a minimum. $20 is enough to see me through a week's worth of driving.)

Pfft, if you've got an IQ of less than 80 it will be taxing.

It would be problematic for a few people I know, then.
