26YO REVERSE COWGRILLZ

wed oct 23

ok. tues went to bed at 8 pm or 8.20. BRETTY GOOD. Marked improvement over mon, bed at 10pm. Nope. NINE at the LATEST. But SEVEN would be IDEAL. Get up early, start underwork early, get out early, eat lunch, and here’s the challenging part, do a minimum quota of Homework for the day, take powerwalk, eat dinner, watch movie, go to bed, hopefully all by 8 pm, lights out. easier said than done, and does not leave room for errands! would have to cut out the movie. and I am a f00king movie EXPERT. movies are my LIFE.

thurs oct 24th

went to bed at decent time again, around 8:30 pm. still tired, did NOT get Muh Work done yesterday cuz I just HAD to watch a movie, and it turned out to be stupid as f00k. but I still went to underwork, had a nice Social Experience, did a Powerwalk, and got to bed at a decent hour. But was still tired this morn, really gotta shoot for 7 or 7:30. And now I will be under the gun today trying to catch up with Homework. Can finally rest at about 5 pm, will take powerwalk then, but then what? any more productivity? muh new errand chore project is to get a winter coat. I know kinda what I want: a sturdy, hooded, “WarmEST”  Carharrt style coat. Something to keep me warm on Powerwalks in subzero winter.  Will cost about $80. I am ok with that as long as it lasts at least 2 years. My last coat “was” $40 and lasted 2 years, but it is very cheaply made and I tore a hole in the outer body quite easily walking past a fence or something and now the white stuffing is visible like offal and you look like an unemployable virgin loser walking around like that. you look like a bum who doesn’t take pride in his appearance, so why should anyone else.

this is a fundamental theme for us losers, we generally dress very shabbily, like we don’t take pride in what we look like. Very important. Take Pride in what you look like. Not so much for What Others Think, but for how YOU think About Yourself.

This I Believe: Like Exercise, Good Sleep, Good Food, and Prozac, Good CLOTHES are a MAGIC BULLET for Morally Lazy Loserness. Also Lifting, Praying, 18yoqt SOYF, 21yoqtSOYF, 26yo Reverse Cowgirl, Good Career Job, Good Friends, Good Family, Good Neighborhood. These are all factors.

5.18pm – breathing sigh of relief, finished with my homework related task, where I have my weekly report with my “Coordinator.” This is a great thing, a great great thing, it just makes me nervous all day thursday. especially since I have been rushing through my homework lately, or falling behind. computer related stuff, basically trying to become an expert in a computer language and it is complicated and intimidating and a lot of material and easily to feeeeel lost and confused. don’t want to talk about that too much, don’t want my enemies to out me and end my one career opportunity, my one last chance at working class adult succcess.

heheh. been up for over 12 hours now. tomorrow day off, so I could go out and party, but I tired, want to go to bed early, just ate dinn, now writing, will go for powerwalk before sun sets at 6:45 i mean 6.35pm. , then watch movie, or movie length of tv shows, will be lucky to get 2 hours of that before falling fast asleep.

real notable thing of the day was lunch with co-workers. they work in diff department and are gainfully bigboy adult upper working class fully employed. I am friendly with the one guy, who is just a real friendly talkative guy, and he invited me, I was nervous about having to talk to the other guys, but I did ok I think, thank god.

and yesterday I had also gone out for lunch with a coworker from my dept who I am quite friendly with. Turning into a regular social butterfly!!!!

The LESSON LEARNED is: become friendly with people at your place of underwork, someone, ANYONE, find the friendliest person there and GO TO LUNCH WITH THEM.

1. Just Find The Friendliest Person There, and

2. go to lunch with them.

It doesn’t even MATTER if you don’t LIKE them. (I DO like the people I mentioned.) You will BEGIN to like them if they are truly friendly. The world NEEDS more friendly, nice people. But there still are some out there. Glom onto them clingily for dear life, hahahaha.

And I also got some fresh Protips for you today:

* Absolutely buy Long Underwear for the winter. Before age 25 or so I never used to do this. Now I don’t know how I survived the winters without them. Think about it. Nothing between your bare legs and freezing cold but a pair of PANTS? HELL NO! get some LAYERS in there! The only downside is that it can be expensive to buy 14 pairs of Long Pants Underwear Thermals. That’s like $135 right there. But you could make those last 2 if not 3 years. THEORETICALLY you CAN Rewear those if you’re desperate. or not wear them every single day. YES of COURSE you should wear proper underpants underneath them!!

* Along with Big Fat Poofy Gloves for the Winter, you should also buy Cheapo Thin gloves that you can actually do stuff with your hands, grab stuff and smoke a cig and use your phone or music player or drive the car. Because with big fat gloves you can’t do any of that, but your hands get cold too fast. So just buy a pair of thin girly gloves for $2 at walmart.

* Are BOOTS more comfortable and supportive on your feet than SHOES? Maybe. Get shoes that are more Bootlike and go higher up.

* If you have a favorite Blogger or Vlogger and they’re not a super celebrity, maybe one day write them a nice email and start a mini conversation with them. Certainly you will have plenty to say because you’ve been reading/listening to them for years and are interested in the same topics. Ask them if you can talk to them for 30 minutes on the phone for Career and Life Advice, and if they will write you a Letter Of Reference and let you use them as a Reference. And then write them a nice thank you letter. You will feel Real Cool, having an exchange with one of your Heroes / Role Models. Just don’t stalk them or write them super long emails regularly. Of COURSE they’re busy.

* So November is Mustache Month for Male Cancer, that’s kind of Cool, but I suggest you just start growing a Full Blown Full Beard instead, as mustaches are too hipster. (not that beards aren’t!) plus by november WINTER IS COMING and you have more than a valid excuse. I have this habit of having a Full Beard during the Winter and Clean Shaven during the Summer, the constrast is nice. Try it out yourself. If you can’t grow a great beard, just know it WILL get better year after year. Hopefully you will be able to grow decent something by age 30, hehehehe.

* Oh yeah I forgot. get a scarf. get a LONG scarf. like long thermal underwaerz I always refused to wear a scarf. thus my face froze. it is much easier to tolerate winter with gloves, scarf, long johnz. but for some reason i saw scarfs as unmasculine or faggy or weak. NOPE. just get a black scarf. it has to be LONG so it can actually wrap around your face and not fall off. I have a shorter, normal scarf and it always falls off, I totes awnt to get a new one.

LEADERSHIP BS VS MANAGEMENT BS: HOW TO NOT BE BAD AT INTERVIEWS

tues oct 15th

If you are being Micromanaged at your Underjob and don’t appreciate it, all the more because you do a ridiculously good job, then write a brief story about it you can tell in an interview later. But specifically go out of your way to say that none of your previous employers did this, because you can’t speak poorly of prev employers. just say, hypoethetically, this is an example of poor management, and here’s what i would do instead. Because I’m a LEADER not a MANAGER. I don’t just do things right, I Do The Right Thing. I Inspire by Example.

Drink Tea / Iced Tea throughout the day instead of coffee all day if you have to stay up for like 36 hours straight to get all your werk done. Coffee is fine at the beginning and middle of the day, but too much too fast will dehydrate you and make you poop your pants. So have two coffee breaks, and rest of the day, drink strong tea.

If you don’t have time to use a Cigarette Machine to make Cigarettes, just buy Roll Your Own and Roll Each Cigarette as you “need” them. Like I’ve been too lazy to sit down and use the machine to make 20 cigs, but I would be willing to ROLL a cig, if I had some Papers.

Note: do NOT buy Zig Zag papers, because they turn brown easily and always look like you’re smokign a Huge Joint. It looks SO Bad.

Buy a bag of Bugler Tobacco, or even better, a huge bag of Pipe Tobacco, and just roll that.

This is all assuming you don’t smoke a LOT. For example, I am lucky to smoke 1 pack per week. less than 3 cigs per day. Usually just one.

Find your local friendly pawn shop and/or gold shop, and start out buying some SILVER there. Silver is like the Poor Man’s Gold. Be sure you check the Market Price before you get there. Right now the price was about $21 an ounce. So go and buy an ounce and see how much it is worth in a year. I remember around 2 years ago when silver was like $15 an ounce. Now it’s $22. Not Bad, uh???? Imagine if I had bought 10 ounces back then! 16 Ounces!

WOW, got home at 1 am, woke up at 453 am, in at 7am, now 752 am. DEF could not do this more than once every….3 weeks? 2 weeks? Anyway I showed largesse by doing a social call, the LESSON LEARNED, and there’s almost always a LESSON LEARNED, that’s the whole reason I tell STORIES, is that

* You should try to sacrifice your Sleep once in a while to Hang Out with your Friends especially if they are doing a fun event. Just to show you care. I was making a tradeoff of sacrificing a regular and beloved Social Event, because of Time Sched Changes, basically, wanting to get proper sleep for getting up Super Early in the AM. Super Early, like earlier than average even for normalfg successfuls with upper working class careerjobs.

CHECK YOUR FRIEND-HAVING PRIVILEGE, NON-WIZARD SCUM.

10 pm should not be up so late but had to do a min quota of hw, and it’s still 3 hours earlier than last night. HAD to lay down to check my nap having privilege today. Said I would do for 2 hours but knew full well it would be longer. ended up being 3 or 4 hours, not suprising. wasted a bunch of time listening to lifelover and joy division and playing around with the long awaited new version of f.lux: darkroom settings, “ember” brightness at night, really quite friendly on the eyes, even set it to slightly dimmer for during the day, with the hypoth that the comp screen is Just Too Damn Bright Even During The Day.

Lifelover is real kewl, and great for us Emo Feelz Types. Wish they coulda lasted longer. You might think they’re corny but I still find them very honest. Honest Angst here. Anger, Hatred, Sadness, all wrapped up in catchy melodies and painful vocals. Dark haunting bits as well. One of a kind sound, even if all their songs sound The Same, it’s a good sound, hehehe. Would have liked to see them years from now, but the guy died at age 25 or so. pretty simple concept, amazing no one else did it sooner. what is a good “lifelover ripoff band” that can continue that sorta thing. I think you COULD “rip them off” in a respectful way and add new things to that sound. so much potential. Dark Metal combined with Dark Pop essentially. struggle to find the perfect production though. real hard to do programmed drums and make them sound good. prefer the live drums on “dekadens.”

Use f.lux to protect your eyes from the bright computer screen.

new shoes are breaking in ok, might take 2 weeks or more for full break in.

Go to Youtube , type in leadership, and watch vidyas by leadership gurus talking about leadership. Leadership is the same thing as “Management” but uses different BS Buzzwords, and ATM IMHO the Leadership Buzzwords will work better in an Interview than Management Buzzwords. Sounds more Emotionally Intelligent for Today’s Sensitive Managers. Unless you’re interview for a Manager Job, then maybe use a combination of Management AND Leadership Buzzwords. But if you’re a Loser reading this blog, then f00k no, you’re not gonna be managing anybody, you are competing for a spot at the bottom of the barrel.

Buy a little Wahl trimmer so you can trim the annoying hair by your ears that starts to look real bad after a few months.

Again, I cannot emphasize enough, DO NOT BUY WHITE T-SHIRTS. When you’re in the socks and underwear aisle reaching for a pack of 3 white tshirts, JUST SAY NO, and look directly to the left or right, and buy the Black or Grey ones instead. Pref Grey. Because after like one washing, the white shirt will look all yellow and shabby, like you never shower or wash your clothes, and will be immediately obvious underneath your dress shirt.  White shirts looks dirty even when they’re clean.

Now, it might look unprofessional to wear a black tshirt under a white dress shirt, if you’re an Investment Banker who always needs to look his best. But, more than likely, that’s not you, and you can get away with wearing a nonwhite tshirt under your Work Shirt. This is an improvement even if you’re just a loser working at mcdonalds or ralphs. Although they might have a strict dress code against that.

ok done prepping muh series of 4 shorter posts. u should be seeing this on oct 24th. here are a few last minute protips. You can come up with new, useful Protips Erry Day. Erry Day should be a neverending stream of protips and lifehacks and cheat codes on how to win at life.  good idea after good idea.

Protip: go into spotify and into your starred list of 3000 songs. then order them by DATE ADDED and copy the songs from the past THREE MONTHS to a new list, and then play THAT new list on Random Shuffle. This will give you like a greatest hits of the past 3 months.

HOWEVER, it’s not fool proof. I GUESS an alternate approach would be to make a similar list from your History from the Past 3 months. Because if what if during the past 3 months you listened to a lot of nonstarred songs, OR songs that were starred longer than 3 months ago! Note: HISTORY is under “PLAY QUEUE.” Spotify really needs to HIRE ME to make them better. That’s my VALUE ADD.
