    Please put your energy into running a business profitable enough to pay me the average of my field instead of trying to run my private life for me. - that is, if you are fed up with your job like me. If not, say yes, because it’s bad luck to turn down an incoming offer.

    So I Just wrote an obscenely long complaint to the inspection bureau of the railway company. I mean this is not tolerable on any level. I’m so pissed off.

    I dont remember getting my adult teeth. I mean, I do, but I don’t remember if it was painful. I do remember sister and my cousin though. They both suffered a lot with teething.

    You don’t get these babes in Victoria’s Secret, honey!

    Ooooh teething. That must be a joy. Poor baby. I hope she has a cooling rebel ship teether to chew on and destroy to ease her pain. And wow, I need her bio clock. I’m already dreading the 6:00 alarm tomorrow. Sister has been busy with grades, language exams, delegating tasks to me, planning birthday parties and nervous breakdowns over the first two. I’m sure her 18th bday party will be a tale to tell, though.

    Wow. I just deleted a first world problems rant and didn’t pester you people with the nonsense of our railway company. who’s proud of me? Oh, did I mention? Sister will be staying with me for a few weeks in July. That’s like a Targaryen birth. The gods toss up a coin to decide if it’s going to be greatness or madness.

    Omg her own room! This is so adorable and such a big step! I bet she has an absolutely lovely little place. Also, does this mean a little more sleep for you and your partner at last? I absolutely cannot afford a MacBook Pro. Well, not without reaching into my family funds, but I’m allocating that for a couple trips abroad. So no MacBook Pro. I was considering a MacBook Air as the slightly more affordable version, which costs about the same as my current laptop did back in the day, so it’s even justifiable... but I haven’t yet convinced myself. What does a PhD program do? You read stuff and write stuff and teach classes? That’s what I remember from the time when my mother did her PhD... then again, that was 20 years ago. Yeah, that’s the eternal debate, isn’t it? To spend or not to spend on status symbol brands? I don’t know how it works as a machine, as for the software, I do love iOS. But I like windows too even though it’s been ridiculous ever since the windows8 update. Oh well. Like I said, I’m glad I get to postpone this decision till 2019. I use Chrome for work and Opera as my private browser. I always hated Firefox.

    I’m a 90s kid, I have a mean girls t-shirt. I know a reference I’m in a toxic relationship with ikea. It keeps hurting me and I keep going back. I’m all for the products, but the service is offensively bad.

    Mean girls? I'm a good person. Such good, real good person. Let me hear you say it too, @El trigo sarraceno, say it! Thanks for the recommendations. My first laptop was a Dell, lasted a good five years, survived lots of teenage abuse. I trust Dell. Never had an Acer, might as well give it a go. In any case, a new laptop is not in my financial plan for 2018, so I'll not rush the decision. And we'll throw meatballs at the least motivated person! Love it! *tries to recall where you're from* Been building walls recently, right?

    I can only imagine how uplifting an experience it must have been As for laptop, I use it for work, watching movies, browsing the internet and occasional photoshopping. What I need is quickness, a decent memory, strong battery and overall durability. I don’t know how that translates to laptop attributes. My current laptop is 6 years old and apart from its dying battery, it’s working perfectly. I had to get it fixed twice but both were under $50 ventures. The bowling is already booked for before dinner/drinks, so that’s set. We just need a suitable place to not starve for the rest of the evening. Well am glad to see our government isn’t the only meme worthy one around here.

    Life and its little ironies... - !!!ramble warning!!! do not read on if you are usually bored with my shit - The other time I was in a rather stupid and suprisingly strong debate with a friend about how much one should spend on a laptop. The conclusion was, not too surprisingly, that I'm snobby and incompetent when it comes to computers, and it doesn't take $800-900 to buy a good laptop for standard use. Friend went ahead and bought a laptop for $300, it stopped working in a week and the struggle to get it fixed is real. Oh well. I'm trying to book a table for a team building event, but almost every single pub, bar, café is in WorldCup fever. Not sure how we are going to discuss our motivation to stay with the firm in spite of its preposterous practices among packs of football fans yelling at the screen over their beers. And the whole issue got me thinking, is there anybody in this team, who wouldn't immediately exchange motivaitonal bullshit for a drink and the designated match of the evening, because I sure would. Oh well. Does anybody remember the Love is... chewing gum with the ugly characters and the fortune cookie wisdom about love? I should start production on Adulthood is... chewing gum. And go to philosohpical depths like, ...when you don't buy a pair of shoes for $100 because you know that kind of money can cover two private doctor's appointments and it's time for some annual checkups. And make it taste like rum. awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. This is the best thing I have seen on the internet today. No, wait. I've seen Empire's Aquaman cover. Second best.

    Very few candidates actually fit (completely) job requirements, because they are so specific and personalized for the prospective employer, from what I have seen. This is where attitude and motivation and character come in, because almost anybody can be trained to fit a position perfectly if they want to work the job and are cut out for it, even if they can’t meet all the job requirements. Thats totally okay. Obviously, don’t apply for a nursing job if you have a degree in law, but nobody expects you to meet 100% of the requirements, so don’t feel discouraged to apply for something that’s at least 65-70% match for your qualitifications and experience. As for prospective employee expectations, I absolutely agree with you. I worked in a highly candidate driven area as a recruiter, candidate expectations were high and important, because the situation. Of the labor market enabled it. That’s fine, that’s how the market works.

    I’m really glad you found some job options that suit you and make you feel motivated. Good luck with getting all the jobs and picking your favorite! Nope, in my experience people with a degree in searched-for areas don’t care if they are qualified for a job or meet requirements. They want the job to offer enough and meet their requirements. Fingers crossed for you in the next two weeks.
  22. So I hear it was confirmed that the LOTR prequel is going to be about Aragorn.... (not sure if this is 100% certain or not) While I am still massively Team Sequel, I can potentially see the way it could work, but it would be an awfully difficult road. There are, however, about ten thousand easy ways it could go completely wrong. Casting is a minefield. Ian McKellen probably won't be back as Gandalf, I can potentially see Hugo Weaving or Cate Blanchette making an appearance, but that's probably all about familiar faces. Including Elladan and Elrohir could be a success factor just as much as suicide. Casting a new Arwen is another rocky road and Aragorn is obviously quite a difficult casting decision too. Halbarad sounds like a safe character to adapt and they probably can't screw up his mother more than that horrid fanfilm already did. Whatever the plot would be about though... Aragorn with the Dunedain would certainly bore the shit out of me, but that's just a personal preference. Aragorn as Thorongil in Gondor with young Denethor and pirate threats... I can see that happening. Aragorn meeting Gandalf and falling for Arwen are again interesting topics, but highly dependent on good casting. I wonder if they will attempt to get Viggo Mortensen back for an old Aragorn tells the story of his youth kinda set up or something, I would certainly appreciate that, but I honestly don't see it coming. So yeah, my only expectation from this project is a boost in LOTR memorabilia production. There are painfully few LOTR funko pop figurines on the market at the moment.
