1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Isn't this what it's like to be an adult? I can make a pretty good case I haven't improved or changed my life much in the last ten years too.

    Aight.

    In HS we were offered Arabic. I thought about taking it because (this was pre-9/11) everyone was like: dude you can make a lot of money if you know Arabic/Urdu/other bullshit languages. I didn't (took Latin instead because of the Priesthood [sidenote: that also did not happen]) and I'm kind of glad I did not pursue Arabic in HS because apparently the teacher never really taught. I'm not sure what the point of this story is.

    I mean, yes. But there should also be some way of evaluating yourself year-on-year for improvement or ways that your better or things have changed or something and I just don't know what it would be for me.

    At your age pretty soon you might want to start improving your erections.

    You don't know what it's like to conditioned with a restless millennial mind.

    Use your dissatisfaction as motivation to do better in the future instead of as a reason to beat yourself up. I've had times that I looked back on and thought "what the hell did I accomplish? What was I doing?" My anger at myself "put a fire in my belly" to where I went on to make good improvements.

    I think also more with Piob is that he already is (no GreenFrog) tremendously successful. He's financially well off, he's reached the mountain top career wise, he's already hit several of the milestones society considers important from a personal standpoint, plus without knowing the exact details of his life, he's come a long, long way. There comes a point where contentedness is to be expected and probably a true sign of adulthood (for lack of a better word). I, on the other hand, am not in any way on those paths. Hell, I don't even know what path to be on (#Basic20SomthingsProblems) and I dunno man. I just feel like I'm running out of time.

    To me "tremendously successful" means not having to work at a pre-retirement age. As far as I know, Pio works for a living.

    That's right Pio. You're a failure, just like me.

    No way. I rather work than not work. If I was independently wealthy, I would still work. I feel I would be dead in six months if I just stopped working.

    That's not what I am saying, working because you want to is different than having to work.

    Some routine plumbing work revealed my boiler is leaking carbon monoxide. Looks like I need a new one. Goddamnit.

    Probably your most insightful post ever. See? You have improved this year!


    Hard to improve on the diamond cutter. Just saying.



    And will probably continue doing consulting in my retirement to fund travel and wine. As I always say, no matter how much money you have if you have to work to support your lifestyle, you're not "rich."


    See above.

    Quite nicely!

    I stated that there are exceptions to the rule. If you go into debt for an MBA from Georgia State you are indeed an idiot.

    Why not just learn to live frugally? You could retire at a much younger age than is the American norm. This is the ConnePlan.
