Unwashed Village / Re: What's going on in your life?

Things are still going pretty good:

That relationship didn't work out. I got dumped in July. I didn't love her, but I DID expect it to last longer. Is that selfish?
The "stable job" I talked about in May was actually a temp position they had been dragging me along for 6 months. "We're gonna keep you on for another 2 weeks" every 2 weeks. Eventually I got permanently hired as a dispatcher, which I did for a month, but I wasn't ready for it, so they moved me to Billing, which is fine. I still get experience in the field I want to work in. Really a PITA to get my foot in the door but I guess it usually is.
I still take the train to work and I love it. I generally only drive my car "for pleasure" and not commuting and its very liberating.
I've thought a lot about moving out of St. Louis over the past 2 years, to another medium sized city, and if given the opportunity I probably would.
IDK what it is about being 28 but a lot of people I went to HS with have gotten married this past year.

Heres a picture of my car, and of me when I was a toddler so you can enjoy the 90's nostalogia.

Thats good, I've heard good things and some bad (but mostly good!) things about this game.

I know Fallout: New Vegas is considered the best modern Fallout, an opinion which I don't necessarily share since it had a lot of the same jank as FO3.

After the absolute disaster that has been FO:76, the recent subpar classic Doom console ports, and Elder Scrolls: Blades,  I don't have a lot of confidence in Bethesda anymore. I'm "cautiously optimistic" about Elder Scrolls VI.

We already have a "special relationship"  :D

And If it makes you feel better, I think Boris Johnson is a pretty cool dude. Also, the banter on your news program(me)s is hilarious.

While I have some interest in the game, I don't want to support a company who thinks they can half-ass a multiplayer game, charge early adopters full price, release it as a broken mess, and be unclear about how refunds work. Then attempt patch it to a functional state, and give it away a year later to increase player count. This was the biggest fumble of the past year.

Also the "SPECIAL edition buyers get a canvasbag, oh wait you don't we lied haha our bad! blame the marketing team" made me pretty upset.

I'm currently saving to get a place with my girlfriend. I have more hours at work, more responsibility.

Not exactly been feeling great with it, I have been blaming the change in routine but I'd say there is more to it.
Spending a lot more time with the refuser kids, just sitting in silence as an ornament as they do their best to test my patience.

I feel bitter, all the time. It's not good, not for me or anyone. Head's like thorns, twisting and sinking into my brain.

It kind of reminds me of how things were, five years ago. I hope it passes soon.

Congrats on the promotion at work.

I would live by yourself for at least a year before you cohabitate, if you haven't yet. I never lived with a significant other, but I did live with my best friend and a platonic girl last year, and both were challenging. Living with someone you have a relationship with can be fun, but is harder than it sounds, and really stresses things. Chances are, she will notice every tiny mess you make, so you'd better keep the home completely spotless.

I don't mean to sound like a downer, but job issues don't just pass on their own, in my experience. You should try to figure out the root cause(s) of your frustration and change those. My partner works in child care, and its indeed tough.

(It feels great to commute by public transport, and I dislike driving to work everyday)

I hear you. My last workplace was 1.5 miles away. I walked to work and back every day. My current workplace is 2.3 miles away and my home is a couple blocks from one train station and my workplace is a block from another. I take the train in the morning and walk home in the afternoon.

I hope I never have to commute by car again. I did it for many years and hated every moment of it.

Thats awesome Hoopy! Our traffic is not nearly as bad as Chicago's, but I feel environmentally responsible when taking the train. Ironically, its also liberating to not rely on my car to get me to work, and mostly use it for pleasure and not commuting. We have a fatal shooting every month or two on the train, we had one yesterday, so I do wish it felt safer.

Fallout 76:  The suck that keeps on sucking.

Such a shame. I still haven't played it, really seemed like a half-baked idea from the start.

Heres an entertaining video about the failure of FO76. Its 28 mins long, but totally worth watching through.

A lot of good things have happened for me since the start of the year, in no particular order:

Got into a relationship with someone who I feel is a good personality match
Moved into my own apartment in a wonderful quiet but hip suburb close to everything
Read the first book of Rim World series
Just got a newer fun sporty car to replace the old rust bucket I had
Got a stable job downtown, an area which I enjoy working in
Got my wisdom teeth removed
I live right next to a train station, and I commute to work by train everyday
(It feels great to commute by public transport, and I dislike driving to work everyday)

Now I just need to get a cat and I'll have everything I need to be totally satisfied

I made an hour long video about Fallout 76, I think it's the longest I've ever done.

About how bad it is, right?

Sorry about your disappointment. I'm guessing you're in Highschool or so. If he acts oblivious, he's either nervous or just not interested, probably the latter. Try not to take this (or ANYTHING that people do) personally. If you put yourself out there and are nice, some cute boy will appreciate you.

For the first time ever, I was seeing a woman who told me "Happy Valentine's day!". It felt weirdly.... appropriate. Even when I was seeing other people, VDay was always a dumb holiday they never cared about or wished me a happy one.

Welcome dude!
I think I was about 14 when I joined the village (14 years ago). You'd be surprised how much things change, yet also how much they stay the same.
We're not particularly active now, but we do have some fresh members who pop in occasionally and have some, er, interesting things to say.

My family cat of 17 years died a few weeks ago. He had been very frail and mentally slow for the past year, so it had been coming. But when you have a pet for that long, its like losing a good friend who really knows you

This year I will make a serious attempt to curb my drinking/smoking habits. I guess I just want to live a "normal functional" adult life that doesn't involve frequent drinking (especially alone)

My car is on its way out (2001 Toyota Corolla) and I need to look at getting a loan for something newer. Buying a newer car, its a scary proposition. I couldn't be happier to get rid of it though, had it for 3 years and disliked it since day 1. I would like to get a small SUV like a respectable adult.

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and good luck on your New Year! I, for one, am ready for a fresh start and a new year.

Well its the last day of Fall 2018.

Its been quite mild, grey and rainy. I didn't do any of the typical "Fall" activities like pumpkin carving, leaf pile jumping etc haa. Hope everyone else enjoyed your Autumn.

I don't really drink liquor. I generally stick to beer. Occasionally whiskey, poured by someone else.

Dunno if Busch is available where you are TK (Canada if I remember correctly?) but here in the hometown of A.B. Busch is more than cheap American lager swill, it is a lifestyle. In South St. Louis City, there are many dinky dive-bars (on almost every block), where working class men sit and drink either Busch or Stag (which is a great cheap beer that I seriously doubt is available in your area). It reminds me of simpler times. Point is, try a Busch if you can find it. Those ultra hoppy West Coast craft beers are almost undrinkable after a lifetime of conditioning  :-X

Hello.... been a long, long time again.

Its been a rough few years  ( jesus its odd to realize....that its been years.) Since I last poped by.

Welcome back friend. It has been a while. I guess what they said about the bungie cord is true.

Thats unfortunate news about your father.

Sounds like you have the job you've been looking for. We've all had poisonous jobs I think.

We're still here. A couple new members who are somewhat active too.  Hope everything else is good.
