    What it was to be? Or would that spoil things more. If it involved cutting your hair DON'T DO IT MAN but otherwise I say anything is worth a shot. I've lost a few longhair'd friends to the scissors this year... and yes I find that sad. Why? REMEMBER 1996 PEOPLE.

    Whoa, my old beard AND old wedding ring were in this thread. I lost the beard to boredom and the ring launched itself into the Pacific a few weeks ago near Malibu. Kind of a bummer but at least tungsten is cheap. Now I have a half-size smaller so the shackle stays put! And it's too god damn hot to grow a full beard right now.

    I understand, wife has been in the same predicament for a few years.

    Quitting a job fucking rules. Few things are quite as satisfying.

    I'd quit my job too, but all I got are my wits, and people don't pay high for hate mongering witticisms.

    if you're just simply asking whether or not to go to college
    don't
    if you don't have enough cash/grants to completely totally pay for tuition completely upfront with out any student loan debt, then you're just acquiring debt, it's not worth it, it's just not worth the debt
    my advice would be to get out and do a job where you "get paid per project" instead of getting "paid per hour"
    write a novel, or get into comic writing/comic penciling, sculpting, painting, or be an actor, musician, professional youtube video maker, etc etc etc
    you could do any of these things in your free-time-after-work
    it will take a while to make enough money to quit your day job, but if you put in the effort, you'll eventually make it

    lol you are replying to a post from forever ago

    that said thanks for the advice i guess, there's no such thing as "tuition" in sweden though, colleges are free (but i would still go into debt taking out loans to support myself since it's probably not viable to work and study)

    i know now what i want to be when i grow up, though. at least in a nebulous ballpark kind of way

    i know what i want to study and what i want to work with for the foreseeable future. and it is not comp sci or anything technical at all, nor is it music or art or anything dumb like that

    also i've been trying to do small projects on the side etc etc and while theres a number of things i have that are marketable skills (kind of) i have absolutely zero "business sense", don't understand economics, can't run a company, so i've p. much given up on that for now

    Monoxide is from Dallas. Wtf is up with that city? Lord Red Dragon, this dipshit, Napsack trying to sodomize acie, the cavalcade of sexual deviants who follow Cara home from work, etc.

    hahahaha

    there are lots and lots of UM posters from Dallas, the other ones just don't post in the same forums as i do

    even if the colleges are free in Sweden, this still sounds like good advice, getting paid per project instead of per hour is extremely liberating/emotionally satisfying to a lot of people

    Starting my first night of my new shift. Went from working 5am-1:30pm to 9pm-5:30am. Fuck everything. Need a new gig, something where I work quasi normal hours and can completely not care about work when I'm off.
