I feel like several of you are getting married but haven't said much about it and the rest of you secret ring buying fags can come out of your holes now.

I write Javascript to make a crappy iphone game so that the company that owns the company that owns my company can be rich. I theoretically have friends that I wasn't introduced to by my girlfriend, but I haven't seen any of them in like half a year. Although I'm in basically good health I'm constantly aware that my body is rotting and dying every single second of the god damn day. I might move to Portland OR because I could buy a home there, unlike the situation in Oakland, and because my girlfriend has undiagnosed clinical depression and thinks everything will be better if she moves away from her family and friends to a city where she's never been and doesn't know anyone.

I still work for the same online retailer that I did last time we had one of these threads. I do escalated customer service but I applied for a job in Logistics that I'll probably get. My company pays 25% less than industry standard across the board, and I'm bad with money and eat a ton of takeout, and Greater Boston has an incredibly high cost of living, so I often live paycheck to paycheck. I defaulted on a school loan last year so my credit is destroyed and I'll probably never buy a house.

I reunited with my high school punk band. We're hoping to record a full length sometime before the end of the year.

I have a girlfriend. She's pretty much the best thing in my life right now. She's finishing some crazy 8 year undergrad program to become an interior architect, and she's already interning at a pretty legit architectural firm, so if we stay together maybe she can be my sugar mama.

I'm fairly happy as long as I don't focus on how much crippling debt I'm in or how badly I screwed myself by having no ambition and majoring in Communication, or how much I hate my job. I have a lot of friends and do a lot of interesting stuff, so things could be much worse.

I am almost 200 lbs, but my weight is generously distributed such that I look closer to 180, so I have that going for me. I haven't been to the gym in almost two years and I kind of don't give a shit.

I watch tons of wrestling.

I'm getting married next month and I have a kind of shitty job working for state government that pays next to nothing. The pay wouldn't be dogshit but the dumb way salaries work there is due to me getting a huge promotion from my old job, I'm locked in at the bare minimum they can pay me for that position. If I could somehow quit my job and then immediately get rehired in the same position I'm instantly make like 20k more. dum dum dum

OTHER THAN THAT things are alright, I guess. My girlfriend might take over the law firm she's working which means she could be making ridiculous amounts of money but all of that is up in the air. Right now she's healthy and pain free because it's summer and she wants to stick around here as long as that continues. I have a feeling she'll feel terrible again in the winter and we'll probably have to move somewhere warmer. We were considering Austin for the longest time. I want to live somewhere where there was shit to do. We'd probably just sit in our apartment and drink while watching garbage movies still but I guess the OPTION of seeing something would be there.

My life is still shit.

I'm thinking of going back to school and getting a masters because whatever. My job has some tuition reimbursement shit anyway so I might as well use it and maybe get a job I don't hate.

I guess I can share a smidgen more. Begrudgingly.

My job is the same and unremarkable. I'm still the manager of the art department and in about three months I'll be completely debt free because of all the obscene overtime I worked last year. This kind of adult financial talk is incredibly boring and I'm glad I won't have to engage in it until next year.

I rent. You can't buy property here unless your parents die and they happen to own property. Buying anything in Vancouver, which is what I would prefer, is fucking impossible but I will blindly pursue that dream anyway. Just driving into Vancouver now costs you $10 in tolls but I still do it every other weekend because I like to people watch and that's where all the best weirdos hang out. In the area where I live now regular houses are being replaced with row houses at an alarming rate and it's absolutely disgusting. I would write an article about it if I was still a journalist.

I do still write, however. In the last five months I've written 400 pages of a long winded novel full of run on sentences. I'm not at liberty to discuss it. I work on it every day to improve my bill paying skills.

Around the time I started writing daily I also started exercising daily for about two hours (Which is why I'm almost never in the chat. That and I don't have much to chat about.). My weight had ballooned out of control (Over three bills.) and I've lost sixty pounds since I began because I walk over ten miles a day. I still have sixty to go before I'll be entirely satisfied. I've never been that slim in my life and my doctor thinks my thyroid will scoff at the idea but I'll show him. I'LL SHOW THEM ALL.

I've lost touch with all my meat space friends and I'm not really on track to make more. Thankfully my emotional deadness excises any glum emotions that might build up as a result. I can't sustain relationships for longer than a month because I don't actually try. The reasons for this are numerous and deep-seated so I won't elaborate. I'm making attempts to right this obvious failing but change in people is glacial especially when the person is aware of the change taking place. I'm presently a half shut-in.

All in all things are looking up.

Well, let me start about 11 years ago since I left school. I graduated from a state university with a B.A. in Computer Science with a concentration of generics. The folks bought me a car with the idea I'd be rolling with job offers. Absolutely not. I was jobless for about a year because of my experience in nothing. So with huge loans kicking in, and the car was now for me to take over in payments, I needed work badly.

The degree I got was basically toilet paper and decided, fuck it, time to work in a grocery store. Was an aisle jockey for a year. Then I moved on to retail and stocked merchandise for about 3 years. My big break came in and I was moved up to commissioned refrigerator salesman! Did that about a year and had enough of it. Working Black Fridays was the worst experience to go through from stopping fights to getting into a few.


After I quit retail, I signed up with a temp company and did several part time jobs, mostly warehouse. Went back to stocking, but this time with fork lifts and pallet jacks. Then I eventually got a contract gig doing electronics assembly line and computer repair. The company I worked for also had technicians that went to local schools to repair and install PCs and other equipment. I got onboard with the tech team and did that up until 2 years ago.

I was putting in close to about 13-14 hours of work each day and got burned out doing that. I quit that and decided to go back to school. Went to a community college and piled up on some basic computer certifications like A+, Network+, etc. I found a part time IT tech opportunity with a local city government. Then one of their IT analysts quit for another job and I applied. The IT manager is a big believer of moving people up from within and I got the job. But the BIGGEST reason I got the job was because it required a college degree. Well hell, I pulled that degree out my ass and moved on up!

And that’s where things currently stand for me now.

I paid off all of my loans and my car. I'm not married and have no kids(THANK GOD). I did get a BIG scare with one chick but I was NOT THE FATHER. Yessss!

Thank you for your time bros!

Andre, there's no sense in busting hump just to get an extra credential. People who do that invariably become unbearable tight-asses.

UNLESS, you're REALLY in it for tuition re-imbursement, student loans and grant money, in which case, go for it.

After grad school, I moved from Boston to DC. I temped to make money while interning in Congress for a year, but that didn't pan out to anything good (didn't help that the Repubs took back the House in 2010 and my Congressman lost reelection). Worked as a communications specialist at a trade association for four years, hating every fucking minute of it (but it paid pretty well). Became a big stoner to deal with the depression and was in a loveless relationship for about a year before my Dad died.

Broke up with the gf, quit my job, moved to Oregon for three month and wrote a novel. Moved back to the East Coast and kept my mom company for the summer because Portland was lame. Back in DC now since October, working as a marketing specialist and professional copywriter on contract (Obamacare is the most amazing thing for being a contract worker) where I make twice as much as I did when I was salaried, but with the time to continue working on my own writing. I self-published a book-in-progress (first two parts of the book are on Amazon) but no one buys that type of shit. Going to try to sell it to a publishing house once the third and final part of the story is done.

Got a new girlfriend who is an amazing artist and who I'm falling for. She also has a half-corgi/half-sheltie who is the cutest fucking dog in existence. We're writing a children's book together which has been really cool and she is friends with a publisher. Got a new awesome apartment in a quiet part of the city, working steadily, writing steadily. Thinking about getting an MFA from a long-distance program (which is also pretty cheap) so that I can eventually just teach writing instead of working in an office, but only will do so once I finally pay off my last grad school debt (which is almost done).

Next step is to prob buy a house, settle down, have a family, and keep writing.

I think I finally did find the dude I'm going to marry, which is a really weird thing to say and feel, because I'd stopped entertaining the possibility a long time ago. Guess I'll see what happens! Anything to get rid of this fucking last name. Every time I have to spell it out for someone, it burns in my heart.

I'm still not fat, but I can tell that my body is furious and I really should start exercising before shit starts to get out of hand. I just don't think I'll have time/energy until school is done.

SPEAKING OF, I'll finally be done with a bachelor's degree in December. I kinda want to get into marketing research, but I don't know where to start. I have an in with a friend in Chicago, but not sure if I want to move there. I'm doing graphic design and marketing stuff for a company that does career coaching/transition. It's a weird place, but I'm getting paid more than I ever have (which is still kinda pathetic), even though that's probably offset by the shittier health care plan, but OH WELL.

I stopped working the second job at the library, but I really miss it. If money wasn't a thing, I'd just keep doing that forever.

Uh... my dog is still a beautiful princess.

I guess that's it.

You could just get it changed legally. It's pretty easy. Jewish people do it all the time. Ask my friend Joshua Benderson.

It would be one thing if his last name was also stupid, but it's not, so I can wait another couple years to marry into something better that I don't have to think about. And if it doesn't work out, I'll definitely just change it myself.

I have no idea what I would choose on my own, is the problem.

Sometimes being 30 really fucking depresses me.

Like, this is it. This is when getting old starts to happen. I will continue to steadily become a worse, uglier, more tired version of myself from here on out.

But other times I feel like life is actually going to get more awesome, and I'll still be young enough for a while to do fun things without having the retarded insanity-addled brain of my early-to-mid 20's. And maybe as I get older, I'll care less about getting older.

I don't know, guys!

Hmm. I used to live in upstate NY until 2007, where I worked for a printing company making shit money. I then moved to Maryland with my girlfriend at the time, as she had a pretty sweet job offer down here.

Continued to do the same type of work...still for crappy pay. Broke up with my girlfriend in 2010, but we are still friends. Got promoted a few months ago, but still haven't received a raise, so I decided to go back to school to pursue a computer science degree as it's so prevalent here- with all the DoD contracts and such.

Had one other serious-ish relationship, but that fizzled out. So, single and kinda poor. Livin' the life.

I don't really have anything interesting to note other than anyone from FTU who is friends with me on Facebook knows I go out of my way to be as abhorrent as possible while online now.

I left Montreal to move to Toronto (MISS U SPAMDINI) so that I can fag it up with more friends here. I still work for IBM doing recruitment consulting which I am at peace with since it allows me to maintain having an untethered existence filled with irresponsibility. I have almost no debt although I have to attend a bajillion weddings this summer and fucking jesus christ that's expensive, and my friends are terrible for making us spend so much money just to get really drunk at a golf course.

I started taking anti-depressants and it's been a huge help for me dealing with anxiety, although it means I can really handle going on weekend long drinking binges like a professional functional alcoholic. The destruction of my liver is on my mind constantly.

Um, I'm in an open relationship with some girl because both of us want to be able to bone freely and safely on occasion.

I would say that I'm happier than I've been in a long time but I have a lot of family shit that I just sort of refuse to deal with because I'm not sure how I would help. I didn't wish my dad a Happy Father's Day this year because he's basically a complete absentee father and has done nothing for me as a dad over the last 15 years. I still love him, though, but I've finally reached the period of my life where I am a more functional adult than he will ever be again.

There is zero inclination on my side to ever have a family or be in any rush to get married. If my current relationship ended I doubt I'd care that much. I will probably just fuck around for 4 more years and save up for a house in some homo district of Toronto, Chicago or Montreal.

Well I got my associates degree in Accounting back in 2010, after that I got a scholarship to go to China for a year and study chinese language. Came back in 2011 the day before my sister got married. Since then I've had a string of crap temp/seasonal jobs; I currently work at a state park as a seasonal making 10 dollars an hour. Also yeah I moved back in with my mom. No wife, no kids that I know of! Sometimes I just want to look at myself and say, 'damn potatoes, grow up already!' but I just can't give a darn.
