Evening Prog. What's going on? I'm playing some Battle Born beta and it's a pretty good time.

I wound up falling asleep. Three nights in a row. A new record. It's Thursday though, and historically I rarely sleep on Thursday nights.

Well, I thought about getting a degree in computer science but I really don't need to get one. My certifications will more than present an opportunity for employment as long as I keep them updated. Degrees become defunct when it comes to technology. Sure, the basics don't change but a 20 year old degree in computers will be missing lots of newer information. Instead, I'm studying finance. I figured it's an excellent backup and will always be something that we need in this world. Besides, I'm abnormally good with numbers and I plan on being financially independent one day. Hopefully soon. I have wild dreams.  :lol

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I knew that was going to be in the next post, regardless of who made it.

That would be no.

I took one for the team, so no one else would have to do it.

That would be no.

Where are you now? I'm from Baltimore and I've always thought our fans were fairly gracious, for the most part. It's good to hear we still have some class.

God I hate my commute more and more every day. It's so monotonous. My job is draining because I teach little kids at four different schools (different school eveyr day on a four day rotation), and two of the schools have different start and end times as the other two which means uneven sleep schedule... Four different learning climates and environments, one school the kids get hardly any discipline, another school is run like clockwork so there's no discipline problems but also very little room for kids to be kids... I go from classroom to classroom because i"m the 2nd music teacher so obv the full time music teacher at the school has the room (if there is one)... And then I'm so burned out and wiped when I get home that all I want to do is sleep. I'm cranky and have no motivation to do anything fun with my daughter (or wife), which as a result is putting strains on my relationship with both of them. I'm unhappy. I'm looking for a job that's closer to home but no one is biting right now. Luckily it's early in the school gig game so I'm not super worried, but it's taking a toll.

Do any of you have suggestions on how I can get more energy or just feel better? And please don't make jokes I'm really not in the mood.

Honestly, it sounds like you are suffering from depression. It might be situational as opposed to chemical or psychological, but the symptoms are the same. You might try talking to a therapist or a doctor to see if there are things you can do that would help improve your mood while you hunt for a new job. That stuff permeates everything you and can drag every single aspect of your life down. Trust me on this, I know from a lifetime of continued experience.

Other than that, the only things I could suggest are to try to make a concerted effort to focus on the good things you have, mainly your daughter and wife. Talk to your wife and let her know how you feel but also let her know how important she is to you so maybe she'll understand a little bit more what you are going through. Take the time to be with your daughter. Even if you're tired, I think you'll find the time with her is more therapeutic than it seems it might be when you're beat.

And get sleep, as much as you can. Stick to an evening rhythm that gets you in bed and turned off for the night so you get some reasonable sleep. Not every night can be like clockwork but the more recuperative sleep you get, the better off you will be when you're awake.

I was at the Washington DC airport.   I had a Red Sox t-shirt on and a few of us were talking about this week's series.

Just got home.   Home sweet home.

Well, to be fair, I was going to go with "They probably would've burned the airport to the ground by now", but figured that might be a little extreme, even for them.

I saw a Yankees game in Baltimore because, well,  they don't charge you an arm and a leg and your firstborn. Ironically enough my ex's sister got into an argument with the people in front of us. Normally, I disagree with her but this time she was in the right. The National Anthem was being sung so we were standing. People were trying to get into their row. She said 'sure, just wait until the song is over', which I completely agree with. However, they took it as her being a bitch so it started this whole thing. It's funny because I've been to hockey games where you get booed if you get up to use the bathroom while the puck is in play. I think the National Anthem deserves a few seconds of you keeping your mouth shut and not worrying about getting to your seat at that very moment.

That's awesome Prog, are you doing it online?

Indeed, I am. Hopefully all of the paperwork goes through.

So my good day has gone bad. I got a letting the mail from the crash lawyer informing me that I'm going to be sued over the accident I had last month. She never filed a complaint against her insurance or mine. She just went straight to lawsuit. I did call my insurance company to notify them that I was in an accident but since the damage totaled to $86 they didn't file a claim.

Sorry, to hear that. So what's the next step now? Is there a court date? Maybe she'll settle out of court and it can be worked out by the lawyers.

She's suing over $85 ?!

Long story short, I backed into her Jeep because I was fumbling around my girlfriends car at a red light. Out of the corner of my eye I saw traffic started to move but in fact it was just the left advance lane, I took my foot off the brake and idled into her car. Her car was completely fine (I have video and picture proof), my gf's hard had a chipped grill from her hitch hookup. The moment we pulled off to the side of the road she was complaining of severe neck pain and a migraine and went to the hospital. The cops didn't ticket me and concluded that the crash was 5mph or less (she told them I was doing 50+mph). Took a bunch of pictures and exchanged our information. I called the insurance company and they said not to worry about it and if she files a claim they'll get in touch.

After receiving this letter I called the insurance company and she never filed a claim, she just hired some lawyers. So now the insurance company will deal with the suit because they believe under the circumstances she could be trying to get the insurance policy maximums awarded to her.

Yeah j backed into someone in a parking lot. Cop didn't give me a ticket but did give me a report form. Called insurance company, they said the other guy said I was in the middle of an intersection when I ran into him. My premium went up but only by a few bucks.

That shit happened to my ex. It was the day of her High School graduation. We were on the way to the school... she in her gown and everything, and we came upon a red light. She asked me to read her a letter from her great uncle that she didn't get to read before leaving. As I read it out loud to her, she began tearing up... she took her foot off the brake pedal slightly and tapped the woman in the car in front of us.

Literally no damage. we were going less than 3 mph. The woman said she was perfectly fine... we exchanged insurance info and were off.

A month or so later, she apparently contacted my ex's insurance company complaining of severe neck pain and made the accident seem like it was 1000x worse than it was. When literally I could have done worse by WALKING into the back of her car. Ultimately the insurance company threw it out. People are fucking assholes.


Then you get the opposite. Panda was rear ended on March 17. Was jerked around by the other insurance company to the point where she's got back pain (Her car was totaled...) and she won't go in to see a Dr.  It's driving me nuts.
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Exactly! People don't like their view being blocked while the puck is in play. Some people will just yell something at you. Others will start booing or making a spectacle of themselves. Fuck them. If I have to pee, then I'm going to pee.

The insurance company (state farm) is going to pass it to legal department and talk with her attorneys, they will call if they have any questions or if anything new develops.
