Just walked out of an interview feeling 10 feet tall with a 12 foot dick. Looped around my neck like a figure 8. Even if the chances of proceeding to the next round are sorta low, I feel hot as a m'afk.

"WHY IS THERE AN ASIAN SO CLOSE TO ME!"

Just tell him she's there to show that the company capitulated to SJWs and over-promoted someone who isn't a cishet white dude. It'll make him paranoid and run his business into the ground faster.

The best part was when he send me a picture of him for the website and a female employee.

And we were like: "That's a nice picture"
A day later: "She just resigned we can't use that"  :rofl

I looked up some old drawings I did from a while back.

One portrait I did I really liked. I knew I liked it, but this time I was actually proud. And then I realized, how I prevented myself from feeling this way in the past, due to my negative thinking and low self-esteem issues.
Anytime I would show this drawing to someone I would inevitably get a compliment and then I'd be like "Nah, I can do better than this tho..." or "Well, it was just for practice..."

I started working on my self-esteem issues last year and I never figured it would pay off in this particular way as well.

I can allow myself to feel proud now. I can look at that drawing and say, you know, I did good. I'm proud of myself.

New monitor get. 8)

I can now stop agonizing over the choice. Bye-bye, obscure review sites. Bye-bye, worthless but anxiety inducing user reviews. :rejoice

It's the AOC C24G1, if anyone cares. 24'' 1080p 144Hz VA-Panel with Freesync (G-Sync compatible according to user reports).
spoiler (click to show/hide)
Have to use it at a mere 60Hz for now because I have to use a DVI to HDMI adapter (and because I've decided to "Wait for Navi™", rather than giving in to the allure of the 1660 Ti) so I can't gush about high refresh just yet. :doge

New smartphone get. 8)

I had an old Nokia fliphone before this. Never had a smartphone... but now that I'm starting to get a life, not having a smartphone was more trouble than it was worth. People are starting to have expectations that you can use apps and shit.

Eventually I'm gonna have to take selfiesand use Tinder or whatever. :doge So I didn't have a camera before but now I do.

It's a Nokia 7 Plus. Affordable, beautiful design, thin, decent hardware/features, Android One.

And no stupid notch bullshit. :rejoice

Also why the fuck would anyone spend $1000+ on a goddamn phone. :neogaf

Edit: also no fucking glass on the back, just plain matte :bow although fingerprints and shit still show up unfortunately and it's not very scratch resistant from the reviews I've read :doge

I'm feeling like trash today, mentally and physically. So I was going to make a toasted peanut butter and banana sandwich...instead, I replaced the banana with Snickers/3 Musketeers/Twix/Milky Way minis.

Living the good life!

Being comfortable with just yourself, especially out among the hoi polloi, is a sign of confidence and maturity.

This past year, I very much enjoyed just finding a patio restaurant to have a sandwich and a beer and read a book by myself.

I've been training Google to only advertise women's underwear products to me, so now every time I read the news or check out some bs website, I'm graced with babes on the side of the page.

Had my yearly review just now.  Was like five minutes long and was essentially "nothing bad to say- you keep on doing awesome, here's a regular pay raise, plus an additional extra pay raise for hard work, plus a nice bonus on your next pay check to show our appreciation."  We're going on vacation next week...that bonus alone just paid for the whole trip and then some!

I'm in the new place! Not a darned spooky thing in the world, though my landlord-provided minifridge makes quite a buzzing noise.

I went out to get my bedding materials, ended up hitting a new favorite craft beer place for an IPA, a Norwegian Imperial Stout, and some Okinawan noodles for dinner. Carried everything back instead of cabbing to get a little walk in.

The landlord also gave me access to the separate guest house's internet. I'm not gonna complain about free internet, but I'm not going to be playing any online games for the next half year!

Ordered some whey last night from Amazon, of course hit up the free shipping so it wasn't scheduled to be here until the 12th, which by that time I'd have likely run out of what I had left.


It arrived today.  :jawalrus

I think you all know I've been placed on the project from hell at the most toxic client I've ever seen for long time now (and with as many clients as I've had, that's saying something)
I'll just leave these emails here (I've obviously changed the names, but otherwise they're verbatim):

Quote
Email from client PM to me with his management and my management CC'ed on it.

Puppy,
We need  to have a discussion about your team's attitude. There's been a trend that we're seeing that it worrisome. We'd like to get this cleared for the projects success. Please let me know some slots that might work for you to meet and please give this priority.
Thanks,
Client PM

My Reply to all

Client PM,
Of course! I'm always willing to discuss and address any issues that might impede project progress. It stands to reason, however, that my team does not work in a vaccuum. Rather, we partner with your team. As such, any discussion of attitude and overall productivity must include a discussion of your team and how they interact with my team. To that end, please be prepared to have a holistic conversation about both teams and their attitudes to help remedy any concerns at their root rather than band-aiding the problem. I've ensured my calendar is up to date, please feel free to book my time as needed, I'll loop in my leadership as needed.

Thanks,
Puppy

Finally broke down and got small shirts as mediums were looking sloppy, was worried about wearing them to the gym because in my head I'm still a fattie and they're tight as hell (even to where you can see abs pushing through the fabric :lol ) but turns out I looked jacked and probably should have sized down months ago.

you'd be surprised how often clients will just take a giant shit on consultants/advisers when a project isn't where it should it be, or how often the third party will just drop its pants and take it so props to puppy for standing his ground without being a dick
