About time I'd written this shit down.

Posted 03-20-2011 at 05:23 PM by Ridg3
Well, I was sacked from my job recently (recently being my birthday (best birthday gift ever.)) And the exuberant feeling of having no job to occupy my time has long since faded so now I'm out trolling for non-existent minimum wage jobs. Fuck that shit, there has to be someone out there looking for someone with good grades and experience... nope, not the case at all. Even the glowing reference from my ex-manager was insufficient enough to land me a job.

St. Patrick's day just went by and as you all know, it's an excuse for the Irish and anyone who even has a drop of Irish blood in them to throw their liver in danger and drink semi-lethal amounts of alcohol. I spent 60 on booze before seven o'clock and I think I was refused entry in some bars. I stayed awake through the drunkenness so I didn't have a hangover. So much for my abstinence from drink anyways (not a Lent thing.)

During my unemployed, dreary, dank periods of my shitty life where I'm doing nothing, I've been refining my technique with the guitar. Writing, composing, scrapping and re-trying a song that I want to write before I kick the bucket, I don't know how artists do it sometimes. Any advice welcome.


I wanted this as my avatar but it claims that I cannot upload animated pictures. I cried a little.

And apparently I'm not that big of a miserable, soppy cunt that I thought I was. My relationship has surpassed the date which I thought would have been its demise. I'm glad for that, sometimes it's all that's keeping me from sticking my face into a barbecue grill.

I'm really fucking tired at this stage because I've been listening to people's god-forsaken, unwanted, cry-whispered woe stories of their supposedly happy fucking relationship and having to dole out advice to them. I really don't know how to tell them to fuck off tactfully. Once again, advice welcome.

TL;DR:
I'm unemployed.
I spent more than I would've liked on booze.
I'm writing a song.
I want a new avatar.
Fed up listening to other peoples boring shite.

Also, new toys I'm getting soon (once the money I'm owed starts trickling back and whenever I get a job.)

Hope things start to pick up soon, dude. Personally, I had the greatest St. Patty's day ever.

Best of luck.

St Paddy's. Paddy's.

Didn't come here to turn this into a dick measuring contest, but 60 is weak Try 330.

I can also in full confidence say 60 pounds is a reasonable sum compared to liquor fueled liquor-related liquor-purchasing. A 350$ (150 Deposit) birthday keg pour moi? Why, thanks me! I shouldn't have.

Also 30$ of Whiskey. Leftover from St. Patrick's day.

Don't worry, Ridg3. Things will absolutely get better if you barf that positive attitude into them. Barf, Ridg3. For us, and you.

That avatar looks badass. But anyways, I hope you'll get another job soon and good luck for... finding that job.

I don't know. Bad with words.

I say 60 as that's what I spent before I went out, more was spent in the bar and more was spent when we landed back to a mates.

It really is, I'm hoping that if I spend a shit load of money on equipment it'll make me really dedicate my time to the art. If not, I'll have a nice ornament.

Anything on allowing the avatar, admins? It's really camp looking.

I can imagine your current avatar with hypno-eyes.
