@Chinaski ty How have you been?
@cdrive HARD AGREE. I joined and I figured it out (sort of) and it’s just a bunch of random comments with no cohesion. I can only hope this Patreon forum is the business, because Discord sure isn’t for me.
in the office today with unexpected high anxiety. sucked
Speaking of work - I started this new job in early Feb. after leaving what Aron lovingly calls something like 'the evil corporate overlords' (he's not wrong) - and then the industry that my company supports has decidedly taken a hit due to several factors (new laws, taxes on farms & growers, etc.). So now my company, like almost all others in the industry in all aspects, is struggling - and that's leaving me with my own anxiety, wondering if I will soon be out of a job as one of their newest hires. I updated my resume & am occasionally peeking in on the internet job boards, seeing what else is out there. I'm not oldddddd, but too old to be worrying about something like this. I just want my benefits & to continue my 401k and live comfortably and travel and not be scared that I may be jobless at some point.(And I know there are millions that also face this struggle... it's not easy.)
@Chinaski luckily I wasn’t going 20 over so the fine is more for school zone but not in that next tier. Also can take defensive driving since I haven’t had a ding in long while.
Good to hear that you had no damage, but is your sister the Mum of the sick nieces? Damn, she’s having a rough time too. I hope the new year is a lot better one for you and your family. It’s your turn for some good stuff!
me when I stub my toe:
Also, fuck the PS5! How do they even sleep at night releasing new games like this Elden Ring bullshit. Who gives a shit? If we’re not one of the 36 people in the US that has a PS5, we’re supposed buy it on PS4 and get excited about it? Average life of a PlayStation edition is 6.5 years with the latter end of its life being long in the tooth. We’re more than a third into that lifespan now. I don’t desktop PC game. Haven’t for 20 years. I also don’t own a beeper or a Sony discman. No PS5 has been a real gut punch. Darkest moment in gaming history since the Atari ET game.
