Recently my paychecks have been somewhat lackluster.

Maybe I should ask for a raise.

I got a raise recently. Now I make $10.50 an hour. Good thing I live in a rural area, or else I'd need a second job just to live.

John,
Thank you for your reply. I've asked for more shifts and am working overtime for the next two weeks, hopefully I will be able to keep up.

Sincerely,

John

I think I should go to bed, but the mattress just isn't very comfy. So I'd rather sit here and waste time.

Does anyone else find the audio here relaxing?

John,

though I cannot speak for the others here, I can state with certainty that I find the audio here to be relaxing, yes.

Perhaps a new mattress is in order for you.

Have you slept well in the past few weeks?

Hello John

It's rather soothing. I cut Alcohol out of my life rather suddenly so when I'm about to go to bed this tune helps me settle down. Have you ever tried drinking hot tea? Chamomile may help you relax even if the bed isn't the most comfy.

John

I got into a fight several days ago. Some gentlemen took issue with a gesture I made in a parking lot, a misinterpretation as it was towards my female coworker whom I've no intention of courting. Afterwards, when I left the store, he confronted me. I threw 78 cents worth of various coins at him while questioning his sanity in regards to my "finger guns."

I lost, but he grabbed my shirt and then my leg during the proceedings. The following blows to my guard and the back of my head did not hurt, and I'm completely unharmed save two knuckles having been scraped.

Looking back, I had much more fun then I've had in a long time, and it made me hope you were enjoying your summer, too.

Wishing you the best,
-John

John, are you telling me you spent the better part of an argument throwing coins at a man? In hindsight, your weaponized currency is probably the reason it escalated to a fight. Regardless though, I'm glad to hear you had a good time. It's been too long since I've had a good scrap--they become less and less common, the more mature company you keep.

I haven't ever been in a fight in my life save for a very few short lives spars.
I'm happy to hear you weren't hurt, John and I have to admit I admire people who can casually get into fights as I have huge mental block towards it

Yesterday I was going through the laundry in my dryer and found my earbuds. I thought they would be dead from the water and the plastic was a bit melted, but they still work. Anyone else have luck like this?

I had the same thing with an mp3 player.

John Smith 17/07/29(Sat)18:41 No. 46162

Same thing happened to me as well, though they were inside my jacket's pocket.
Thought they were a goner for sure, yet they're still working fine.

Computer science or electrical engineering. What should i study? What would be my job prospects in both fileds?.I live in Estonia so I`m in bad luck because we dont have a Sillicon valley here and there is very little manufacturing going on, so I guess i`d better choose something completely different(like healthcare or the army), but I really want to choose either CS or EE. I`m not chosing computer enginering because I think that it offers much less jobs than software development(especially web dev), while with EE i`m thinking that i could come in handy in a variety of places, not to mention I could just start out as a simple electrician with a degree(thus more qualified and more promising career). But i`m scared to take EE because it`s engineering and I`m afraid I will suck at it, because it`s kinda hard right? Also there are little engineering jobs here, but more front end web dev jobs(which I sincerely hate).
So please help decide my future because I do hae to make a decision fast and I dont want to fuck up my life. Thank you!

>It just largely depends on how out going you are/willing to do learning outside the classroom. It also doesn't hurt to be decent at talking to folks and make friends.


Isn't that true for every aspect of life?

CS and EE tend to attract people who aren't socially gifted.

John,

Things are getting difficult lately. I don't want out or anything drastic like that, but this overbearing feeling of dread/melancholy is really weighing on me. I'm fighting to get over it and see my situation as a good one again, but once I get into this hole it's hard getting out of it again.

I'm very thankful for both of you taking the time to write me. I'll work up the courage and plan to see a doctor soon. The way it is around here, with a little luck our letters will still be around then, and I'll try to write back and let you know how I am.

Best,
John

Johns,

I went to the doctor and they had me run some tests. Now results are saying some enzyme or another in my liver is out of whack. I have an appointment on monday, and a referal to a specialist soon after that.

None of this is helping much with my mood. I'm fighting it, but I can feel myself slipping back into the mindset I was in back in March. I'm scared I'm going to go in and get diagnosed with something deadly, cancer or something. Please keep me in your prayers.

Best,
John

I had a date with a girl yesterday. But, like every other date I've had in the past seven or eight years, it ended miserably. I've given up on trying to be interesting. Life is just /eh/.

But in other news, I am drinking Diet Dr. Pepper.

As do I. It really is a delicious beverage.

John Smith 17/07/21(Fri)00:47 No. 46146

I never have acquired the taste for diet drinks. The aftertaste of the fake sugar still puts me off.

Cherry Dr Pepper, however, is something I appreciate because it very nearly approaches the flavor of Cheerwine. Another convincing Cheerwine imitation is Rockstar Revolt Black Cherry.

I feel sorry that it took you 7-8 years to give up, but I'm not sure what's worse: Giving up only after a couple of years or at least putting in the effort like you did.

I hope you enjoyed your Dr. Pepper.

I tried light ranch dressing today. It was good. A suitable replacement for full fat ranch.

Wow John. Thanks for this tip.
I just finished a steamed artichoke and it would have been better with this dressing about, I am sure.

John have you ever been in an elevator? Nothing but you and that characterless elevator music humming in your ear. I find these times to be so odd. Kind of like you're in a small bubble by yourself, surrounded by nothing but your thoughts (and elevator music). During these times I tend to think about all the places I'll never go and all the people I never get to meet.


>>
John Smith 17/07/16(Sun)19:49 No. 46135

I got stuck in one before for 30 minutes. There was no music. I didn't think about anything other than "I want to leave this elevator".
