For years I've been trying hard to get in to a private mechanical engineering school in Pennsylvania and run the Swiss. I did well on the exams and the proctors during interviews were very happy to talk to me and dropped hints I'm accepted on the spot.

However, I don't know if I am accepted or not. Every day is nice outside, but I'm empty and can't do anything.

John, did you see me ask for advice?

Hello John.

I hope that you've now received notice of your acceptance into the school in question.
And if no such letter of approval has been received, I hope that you'll find something else to do

When I was a kid, every day after school I would take the bus to my Grandma's apartment. She would watch me until my parents got off of work. But on days when Grandma had a hair appointment or bridge club, she would send me to her upstairs neighbor's apartment, some man I guess she knew. He wore turtlenecks and was really weird. Every time I went me to this guy's apartment, he would tell me that it was my birthday, give me a Birthday Bread, and sing Happy Birthday to me. Every time it went the exact same way. My Grandma would send me upstairs, I would knock on his door, he would answer it, see me and say "Oh! There's the Birthday Boy!" and tell me to go inside. He'd say "Go sit at the table and I'll get you your Birthday treat". He even had a little thing he would sing to himself when he was making the Birthday Bread, "Take a piece of bread, spread the yogurt on, you got yourself a Birthday Bread!" Then he'd bring me a piece of plain white bread with strawberry yogurt on it and a single candle in the middle. Then he'd light the candle and sing me Happy Birthday, and wait for me to eat the Birthday Bread. After I ate the Birthday Bread, he would let me go watch TV until my Grandma came and got me. Obviously, the first time Grandma sent me to this random guy's apartment and he told me it was my birthday and gave me a Birthday Bread, I was weirded out and pretty scared. So I told my Grandma what happened and said that I didn't want to go back, but she just said "He's fine", and never said anything else about it. But any time she had something to do and couldn't watch me for a while, she would send me upstairs and I would get a Birthday Bread. I never told my parents because I didn't think they would believe me. Now seeing this story written out it looks just as stupid and crazy as it did back then. Why did my Grandma send me to this guy to watch me? Who was he? Why did he always think it was my birthday? Has anyone else ever had a Birthday Bread?

Jeez John,
At my work, whenever a particular employee walks in we all say "Woah! Is that the man of the hour?! Happy birthday Kevin"! His reaction is part of the reason it is done. Perhaps you played off this shenanigan in an amusing way.
Set in stone,
John Smith

Hi, John.
Everytime i access to this website, and, when i'm done reading the first page, i like to go to the catalog. This site doesn't have one. What can i do to remember that? I don't access this website very often, to be honest.

Happy Valentine's Day, John. For the first time in quite some time, this time of year means more to me than just another tick on the calendar, and uninteresting as it is I figured I'd write to you about it.

I planned a date for last night. We were going to go to a fancy ramen restaurant, but chickened out at the sight of the large crowd and opted for a cheap chinese place further down the street. We spent a few extra hours in my apartment, lounging on my bed and reading a book. The night concluded with me walking her back home, and doing something entirely outside of my comfort zone--against all odds, I kissed her goodnight.

I'm a very slow-moving man romantically, and believe it or not this simple evening was a huge milestone for me. I've never broken that kissing barrier myself before, in the past I've been much more likely to be kissed than to kiss first. The future here is completely unknown, and it's a situation that enthuses me as much as it concerns me.

You're just proving my point. Humans really are just glorified animals.

Who would not say anything about online dating, but this solution still helps, and of course you need to be a little more sociable in order to make such acquaintances online. For example, this page https://www.datemyage.com/dating-an-older-man/ has a great site where everything is very simple and straightforward. If I need a young girl, I will go here.

Seeing a pretty face with a shiny forehead arouses me.
Doesn't matter the gender.

Although I wish female senescence was used more for beauty.

This man owns a shoe shop and sure knows a thing or two about shoes. I enjoy watching his videos.

Dear John,

I am on my yearly, depressive mid-autumn visit here. The player is wokring, and the music is quite comforting. I also have a heating fan on, and a blanket over my shoulders.

Hello, John.

I interviewed for a job today. I felt it was going well until I asked how they saw "work/life balance" there. They avoided answering how many hours employees work in a week, but they gave me the impression that they frequently pressure people into working overtime. They tried to make up for this by bragging that they allow people to take a break for a couple hours if they have a dentist appointment or something. They also highlighted the fact that they don't allow people to continue working past 10PM. I was shocked that they felt this was even worth mentioning.

The cherry on top was when they asked me to complete a 4+ hour homework assignment before I'd be considered for a second interview. This confirmed that they have no respect for my time, if there was any doubt. I've lost all interest in the position.

Have you interviewed with any shitty companies, John? What was it like?

Hi, John.
I don't know what to do.
My brother is very sick and my mom is dying of stress because of it.
Apart from that, here's my question.
Which is better?
A: save up money for lighter fluid and smoke any amount of ciggarettes thst i want and do it outside while listening to music
B: buy a pizza and watch ghost in the shell without worrying about anutying for about 1 or 2 hours.
Sorry for the interesting opitons, that's just me.

Dear John and Co.

Thanks for your words. Turns out it wasn't as bad as we thought. My mother is better.
About my post, i'm better too. My house almost burns down (again) but it's not too bad. I'm not going to smoke like crazy anymore, but i'm still going with the plan.
That would be the original movie.

Kind regards,

John Smith 22/03/10(Thu)09:28 No. 48112


Dear John

Glad to here things have turned corner and are looking good
I thought you ment the original, although its been a while since I watch it and I don't know if there are/or how many different verisons there are/or could be
As for smoking, just be careful (about start fires), don't litter and don't beat yourself up over it

Finally thank you, I'm know happier today knowing your doing better John

As ever yours


John Smith 22/03/15(Tue)01:38 No. 48133

Hello John,

Thank you for the timely response. I would suggest the movie. Perfect amount of time to enjoy a pizza. That includes proper digestion and wait time for delivery if you decided to get that. If you did not want to interrupt the movie to answer the door you could always smoke and listen to music while you wait.

Hope that helps,
