I didn't do anything bad in that sense, just picked a career i didn't like and went to an expensive engineering school for a few years before I realized I was hating the field but loving the good drunken times. (still paying that off)


then i decided I wanted to be a cop. took the chicago police exam. going through that took years. then they told me I failed the psych exam. Which is bullshit (seriously, it was supposed to be a 45 min interview w/ a psychologist or someone. I walked in, they confirmed who I was, then told me to get lost.) excuse to not hire anyone they don't want. For those not in the know CPD is basically only hiring minority candidates, which is funny since us white people are the minority in chicago (both as citizens and government employees)

Then FINALLY I decided on nursing. That was one year of pre-reqs, two years of schooling, then after I graduated it took me a damn year to land a job. And that's where I am today.


On the plus side, I'm in the best shape of my life, have a great +1, and a finally into a career that I like and in a few years will be making awesome money w/ decent hours.

Wow I didn't think I'd give my life story there.

THis looks like a good game to switch off guys with a friend.

See someone fuck up a level then take over and give it a shot.

I've had horrible vision my entire life. I 1st got glasses in preschool and I can vividly remember life before glasses. Everything was all muddy looking.

One time we're on a family vacation (some Revolutionary War battlefield) and I was hysterical because I thought I lost my parents. Well they were like 10 feet away and I couldn't make them out. That's pretty much we all knew I needed em. The actual day when I got them was a strange experience. From going not being able to see shit to being able to see shit... mind blowing. I felt like some mole person being exposed to light for the 1st time.

Heh - I'm almost the same way.  I've had three years of post grad and got a diploma.  Nothing worse than starting university as a 22 year old with 4 years to go still.  I know it's for the best, and I'll be getting a wicked education (I hope it's enough)... but it's so tiring.  I had trouble getting into it my first semester, I was lazy and unmotivated to start back, well, the "start".  I'm working through it though - beats looking for a job with just a diploma. Even 22 seemed a bit young to start a career!!  I want my education (just wish I had more money for it)!!


There are plenty things worse than being 22 and going to college. TRUST ME.


I've made some bad moves in my early 20s. Well as it stands I'm finally on track (if this job comes through. it looks good) and I'm going to go back to school part time starting in the summer in a program for working adults. (I'm an adult?!)

Having recently read his dark materials we netflixed the golden compass just to see how they did. Hopes weren't high based on reviews and the fact that the series was abandoned.

Good:
-all the actors/actresses were perfectly cast. I think that the girl that played Lyra was perfect
-Nicole Kidman looked good and was good in her roll
-Pan was cute as hell. I loved his little voice and the cute sounds he made
-a great looking movie
-excellent knit costumes on lyra (my +1 is a knitter and she pointed out all the handmade gyptian garb lyra had on)

bad:
altered storyline
horrible ending which made no sense
the witches weren't as hot as i imagined them in the book
they took out a lot of the story dealing w/ kids and dust
all around dumbed down
Also, it seemed to try and steal some stylistic cues from the HP series (green fireplaces?!)


Oh well. Not a good book -> movie adaption.

I wore my glasses out in public today for one of the few times since I started wearing contacts in 95.

I like how I look in them...but my lenses are thick as fuck and make my eyes look huge. Which is a good thing, since they're dreamy.

Boy I'm sure glad Dice did good on her test.
6997  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: February 18, 2011, 05:57:55 PM
So how did it go Dice? I bet you failed miserably.

Yoda probably did great.

It was a disaster. I showed up having to go really bad, right. So they said it'd be like 40min wait. Well I went to the bathroom and then 10 min later they called me up.

I had to squeeze every drop out and make it count.

Stephanie Marie Sabibiblio has a mid-term right the fcuk now and has studied very little compared to the week's worth I usually do (but paid good attention in class).  WISH ME LUCKKKKK....   D=

Only if you wish me luck. I'm going for a piss test, physical, and a background check today for my new jrb.

I'm confused.

You want me to paw you then you give me Kirby.



Is that right?

Just bought a SNES on ebay for about 40 including shipping. console looked in awesome shape (no yellowing) and came w/ 2 controllers and 2 shitty games.

I'll probably try and hunt down donkey kong country, mario, yoshi's island, metroid, zelda, and maybe a few others.

Illusion of Gaia, Terranigma, Kirby Super Star (maybe 3, but meh), Chrono Trigger (if you like it and aren't sick of it by now) jump to mind.

Terranigma I don't think I'll ever forget playing (story was ground-breaking for the time), and Kirby Super Star can't be pawed off me unless I'm dead or catatonic (in which, you have better chances of the latter, because I've told myself "I'm immortal" so many times to give me confidence for my mid-terms that I believe it).... I'm so fucking tired.
How could either of you forget Earthbound. Fucking Blasphemy.

I'm not dropping a $100 on a game :)


I was bidding on a set that included some Kirby games but lost out. I'm glad I did because it ended up going for 80. Getting a good looking system was a priority and I got a good deal.

I've never actually played Chrono (save for a quick jaunt in an emulator). Illusion as well.

I like the Darkstalker boobs in MVC3

FYI there's a demo coming Feb 22nd for all platforms. I think they previously announced that only PC was getting it.

I'm so sad I have to wait. Best case scenario my game should arrive in the beginning of March.
Anyone has decided on a team already ?
By what I've seen my probable team is going to me Chun, Dante and Trish. I think they're good 'cause they fit well into my rush down nature as opposed to SSF4 where I also play Chun but I have to control myself a lot more.

I usually pick the team with the most jiggly boobs
