The Cubs aren't going to the World Series this year. :woohoo:

It's Saturday. I'm about to watch some episodes of the second seasons of Kino's Journey, March Comes in Like a Lion, and Love Live!! Sunshine. And then I'm eating pizza and drinking Scotch.

Saw 8(eight!) is coming out on Friday.

Life is rad. :cool:

I just had a heartwarming moment in my life that I wanted to share. I'm studying for an exam about neoclassical art and today I noticed that in class we have a blind girl and it moved me a bit, you can really do anything in life if you try hard enough.

Well, work has been really stressful. I can't really overstate that. I work as an accounting consultant so I go to different companies on a short term basis and help out. I've been on quite a few job interviews but no one ever seems to like me enough to hire me. This assignment has been terrible though. I literally cry everyday and some Monday morning I even throw up I get so scared. However, it's also making me realize I just need to be better if I want to get a better job. I'm either going back to school for my Master's or going to one of those coding boot camps. I signed up for a free 30 days of code thing online and I'm on day 23 to see how I like it. I do enjoy it a lot but I wonder since I already have my accounting degree if a coding boot camp wouldn't work out as well as I'd hope compared to getting my Masters than becoming a CPA. I know this sounds tough but I'm glad I've been able to actually get to the end of my 30 days of code. Only one week left!

I took some accounting classes as part of a minor in college and they were a royal pain in the ass, but dude, wtf. That's no way to go through life.

Glad to see you're taking some initiative, though.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

So, after learning Windows 10's ins and out for the past two weeks, I've finally gotten my new laptop in proper order. It's running on Windows 10 Pro, which was definitely worth the money to get considering that I was able to change the annoying features like Cortana and automatic updates. Also, having a SSD drive for a boot drive is absolutely wonderful. Like 10 seconds and its on and ready to login. So, the new laptop is great, its got 8 gigs of RAM, and an expansion slot I intend to use soon enough considering how much RAM gets eaten up by Windows 10. And the glowing keyboard is nice for writing fics at night, or playing games late at night too.

I know, I feel like a big, dumb baby to be shook like this. However, everyday my boss calls me names and gives me a huge pile of work. I'm the only person besides him who even knows how to do journal entries in the office so there's a ton of pressure. I always feel like I'm moments away from being fired and well due to a nasty divorce I'm taking care of my younger sibling right now so it's a lot of pressure to really exacerbate my anxiety. If I dare ask him how to do something he gets mad calls me a name or says "you don't know how to do this?!" and just tells me to try to find out how it was done last time. To be honest though I enjoy accounting just being a consultant and this company have been awful. My coding homework has been going well and my friend I ask for help with sometimes even complimented it last night. I'm wondering if my current belief in coding is just from seeing so many nice coding jobs friends or people I know online have gotten. I mean I have an accounting degree and I've taken the GMAT so maybe I should go for my Masters. Plus my boss at the consulting firm told me every assignment I've been on I've been reviewed perfect or near perfect even if this company gave me a zero and said I was the worst employee ever she'd think it was them and not me. It's nice to know you're valued in a company.

Just finally figured out how to get most if not all of my pictures back from Photobucket before I permanently destroy the account, but the catch is that I have to do it with an Ubuntu netbook.

There was a Spider in my bed when I was trying to sleep - and it was a quality Spider.

I completed my 30 days of code challenge! It was an ordeal but I made it to the end. My roommate is studying 3D printing and engineering and they actually printed out a little medal for me that's a star with the number 30 over it and random java behind it. It was really sweet and helped me feel a lot better. Not sure what I'm going to do now but glad I tried something. Looking at other websites with similar practice everyday stuff

@MuscleRobo: While I feel your pain, and I'm glad that your story has taken a turn for the better, I honestly think that they'd fit better in the FML thread.

@Cybermat47: Oh man, just yesterday I was sitting in front of my Computer when suddenly a big, fat spider dangled down in front of me. I died a little inside.

Speaking of Computers, after my old one died after a tragic accident involving water, my new Computer is ready to rumble! In fact, I'm typing on it right now! As I'm an Apple-Whore, I've opted for the the new Macbook 2017 with 8Gig Ram and i5 processor. It's a fantastic piece of hardware. The Trackpad, display, keyboard and loudspeakers are worlds above my old Computer. And it looks so beautifully slick. USB-C is kinda annoying, but I hope it'll be the new standard in the future.
