There's nothing more disappointing than coming home from a semi-hard day of work and nothing happened on this forum. It makes you ask "What is life for?"

If you want to start a flame war, just say, in any thread, that 2001: A Space Odyssey is a pretentious piece of garbage. You could do it in the sports forum, I don't even check that forum but my nose for awesome space movies will seek it out.

If I never have to make another worksheet again I'll be happy...god damn, made a test review to use tomorrow and it took me for fucking ever. My mind just isn't useful right now.

YES, IGN does it to me all the time. I prefer reading articles than having these "bubbly" personalities dictate me a story drenched in corporate enthusiasm.

You know what really grinds my gears? When they do orchestral covers of video game songs that were originally played with an orchestra already? What's the point?

Haha. I hate when I click through and get a video too. I usually mess about on the internet while I'm watching TV or sports or even listening to music, so I don't necessarily want to be watching a video. Much prefer reading an article.

I've been in the habit lately (I don't know if it's a good habit or not) that if I find myself just browsing pointless stuff, youtube etc. I'll start listening to some sort of history/technology podcast instead. That way...still being lazy but at least I'm learning, right?

Yesterday at 930 my power went out. It has been out for 24 hours. Minus a temporary period when it was on for about 15 minutes. I was so excited to play my PS4 I turned it on and shortly after the power started to flicker. Hopefully when it comes back on it works still. When I turned it on the first time the light was white and it entered safe mode. Hopefully everything is all right when it finally comes back.

My two days off have either been spent in the cold, or at my future mother in law's house. I was expecting to really play my PS4 and that hasn't happened at all. Last night the power came back on in the middle of the night, but when we awoke it had went out again. It's really frustrating because everyone around us seems to have power but our road. What'll probably happen is the power will come on right before I go to bed tonight, angering me very much.

Severe wind storms. Went out 9:30 PM on Sunday and it is still out now and it is 5:30 PM Tuesday. The worst part is that it has come back on twice for like 10 minutes, only for it to disappear. If it was on days I work I wouldn't care. Today I sat under 10 blankets and played Chrono Cross on my Vita until it died. I live in an area where we get no service for any of the carriers so my phone dies super fast. Last night it got down to 50 degrees. Let me stress the cold doesn't bother me, but the fact that I have a PS4 sitting there wanting me to play it grates my nerves like none other.

I had internet at the future mother-in-law's house, but I really wanted it at home on my PS4.

Yeah, at least you're not dead. That's always a plus.

I applied to McDonald's and Walmart for a job just now. Walmarts application was literal hell, and McD's was. "Where did you go to school?" "are you a sex offender?"

Hoping i can get something soon i want to buy gifts for a few people at least.

Wal-Mart's is ridiculous.  Somehow stupid people still manage to get through it.  Where you apply is right next electronics and people always ask questions on how to do it.  Blows my mind how stupid people are.  Funny stupid Wal-Mart customer story....

So you know the photo machines where you put your memory cards into them to print the pictures?  They're all touch screen monitors that take SD, mini SD, memory stick pro duo, compact flash, etc.... cards.  Well one time, a woman was sitting there, and she was trying to put quarters into the memory card slots.  Why do humans still exist?

Good luck on your job quest Kay. Hope you can land a job so you can do some gift giving.

Gonna try a few more places tommorow, but fuck that walmart application goddamn all those questions and half of that are "would you steal from us?" just phrased different.

Would you guys say you're better at the application, the interview or equally awesome/sucky at both?

Both of those things are hell on earth and I hate them. Interviews are really shitty though because I can never find the words I want to use and just stumble over myself constantly, although I seem to be doing that more and more in every day conversation.

LOL

Anyway, good luck Kay! I worked as a cashier at wal-mart for about 6 months. If you can ignore how stupid and shitty people are it's a really easy job. Or just make fun of dumb customers here, that should be entertaining.

Interviews are the worst, I get so nervous and awkward and probably say all the wrong things.

Ha, I just spent my whole day at work interviewing people! Hiring really sucks and no company likes doing it. In my experience they just want to find someone remotely qualified as quickly as possible so they can move on to the next thing that needs to be done. It's super time consuming, it costs a ton of money and its just as awkward to interview people as it is to be interviewed by someone. I do like going through people's resume's and applications and laughing at the shitty ones though. But that's just because I'm a terrible person.
