I'm done with my job. Straight up done.

Woke up today, realized I was lying to myself when I said I didn't hate it, and then, hilariously, had to listen to 8 hours of somebody getting on my case for something that wasn't my ****ing fault.

****, I need to get a job back in engineering.

I loathe my job, but I want to stay until July because that would give me two years of professional experience when I'm only 24.

Trying to move to Boston to live with four friends in a house in September.

Thanks everyone. Just got back from the hospital. She's stable and set up in icu. She had a heart attack on the way to the hospital but she's alright for now. One 99% blockage, but since it's right in the same area as the first two from 12 years ago they don't want to stent this one. Says it will cause more problems than it's worth. Going to try and tweak the meds and see what happens

Hey everyone. New guy here. A bit about myself: I'm a new yorker, I've only been watching hockey for about 5 years, and some how I became a Devils fan. I've been lurking around the boards for a while now so I figured it was time to quit being a stalker and take part in the fun. So yeah, whats up...

Hope all works out
that's a good idea. i've been meaning to make something new. daveskirtun inspired me to make hazelnut cake, but to do that i needed hazelnut extract, which i couldn't find in stores. so i made it myself. it needed to sit a month, so it's finally ready to use.

hazelnut cake + chocolate frosting = nutella cupcake

If you have a science degree, goto law school and get into patent law. The base salary for an IP (patent) attorney is 140k. You get to play in the sandbox and have security while coasting to 175k your third year all without need for stepping into a courtroom

Definately do this. I got canned from my last job nearly two years ago. In April I will earn an A.S. in a field I actaully like! I value this degree way more than the Communications degree I earned at Rowan. Re-invent / better yourself. You won't be sorry.

I know right? I'm watching my first regular season basketball game in years. I'm hoping this isnt just a great stretch by a mediocre player.
