You have to work long hours though. Something you're not used to.

Long Hours is what pB affectionately calls his penis, FYI.

If it helps, we all assumed it was a positive update, not that you want your dad to be sick. Missing the thread you aimed for is totally understandable, given the circumstances. Here's to your dad getting better.

The school we are leaning towards is the slam-dunk tiger dad choice, with what is likely to be a highly competitive environment, the largest endowment, the best facilities (it looks like an elite college), and by far the greatest breadth of different activity opportunities. However, I worry that its size and competitiveness may not be the best fit for my bright, but often stubborn, often dramatic child whose limiting constraint in life (from what we can ascertain at age 4) will not be her brain, but her heart. I also wonder if such a wonderland environs will deny her a sense of real-world grounding. Last, it is co-ed, and I really would have preferred a single-sex environment. I think.

Anyways, this will mean taking her out of the school she is in. She is very happy there, she is familiar with the surroundings, the community is wonderful, and the environment very supportive and nurturing. It's also close to our home in the city, and it is one of the reasons we chose to live down there. The new school is not far from my office, but still 30 minutes from home and will shift our family's center of gravity towards the county.

I desperately wanted the current school to have the goods, but it's clear they are a step behind in STEM education and I don't like their foreign language philosophy. I think the current school would be a more ideal environment for her, but providing a cushy surrounding for your child at the expense of the very best possible education and breadth of opportunities seems a silly, first-world choice.

Anyways, I am disappointed it has come down to this.

Douglas - I am sure that you will make a decision that you will be happy with in the long run. in a lot of ways, it is the social environment that is most important for kids, they find ways to challenge their brains if they have a group of friends that challenge them socially.

good luck

I keep getting phishing robocalls from random 800 numbers offering some amount of money back on my AT&T bill.

Tried to go to the website and it was clearly a phishing site...and the ones from the last two days have already been blocked by Chrome (they just keep changing the amount of money so it is like scam100.com scam200.com scam300.com).

wish this shit would go away.

I'm in the process of moving offices and in doing so, taking a ton of old junk that's been buried at the bottom of filing cabinets and old drawers and boxes under my desk and combing through them, determining what to toss, and organizing the rest. In the process, I ran into some photos that have to be 12 years old or more of a younger me and an old flame. I'm very happily married to a woman whom I dearly love, who helps me to be the very best version of myself that I think I can achieve, we have a beautiful daughter, and she is a wonderful mother, but it's amazing how some of those old feelings never die. It was a very conflicted, guilty feeling, remembering great times once enjoyed and wondering what might have been, in a different life. Overall, I am confident in the decisions I have made in life and love, but the old photos, for a fleeting moment, caused a daydream of another path I might have trod.

Anyways, I wouldn't say it pissed me off, so much as it was amazing just powerful the rush of conflicted emotions a few photos of a different, happy time could evoke.

I need a career change--I feel like I have no life these days, and I'm pretty much always tired and shitty feeling. I know, I know..."welcome to the real world", but I think my lethargy and lack of enthusiasm for life in general probably also stems from the fact that I work alone at weird hours in shitty conditions.

I'm not trying to host a dick-measuring contest here; rather, I'm here to only bitch (I'd rather blow steam on the internet than real life). I am on-call pretty much seven days a week, which means I can't do anything that I want to do even when I have time.

From like March of 2013 to December of 2013 I was receiving free massages on a weekly basis. I do miss that.

Are you a child laborer forced to work 16-hour days in a sweatshop to produce cheap consumer goods for markets thousands of miles away? If not, I don't think you have room to talk ever.

Fuck ya'll I'll talk all I want.
