    hahahaha if that's really why they're doing it then that is pretty sad

    I posted stop being a little bitch RIGHT AFTER Anjin posted kill cops
    I mean, I guess I could see how they would take me seriously and not Anjin if they were retarded or something but I don't think they are?

    Nogs, did you find that the realisation itself was all you needed to get past the problems you were having? Or did you need to do something to 'convince' yourself?

    it definitely wasn't something that just happened overnight.

    I would say a big part over getting over that hump was actually doing freelance for awhile.

    it forced me to put a dollar amount to what my time was worth. once that happened, it wasn't to hard to realized

    'hey, i am good at this. i can do this. i have the skills, experience and personality to succeed at this'

    and from there it extended to the rest of my life. It made me realize that i am an extremely capable person. That helped all areas of my life from career, to personal, to social.

    It also helped me help others in realizing that they too should be taking credit for their actions. It's particularly helped me assist other people in resume writing and job searching.


    in fact, i'd say that writing a resume about yourself(not necessarily career oriented) can do a lot for one to realize their full potential and their accomplishments.

    too often people think what they have done amounts to nothing or isn't that important

    for instance, i have a friend who knows japanese fluently, but doesn't think its a big deal because he doesn't have a certification.

    out of a millions of people in the the city, i would guess only maybe a couple hundred non-natives can speak japanese fluently.

    Thats like .01% of people. I mean seriously. That's a pretty remarkable thing.

    this week i learned that cowboys are pretty cool and good tippers

    Damn, just got one of those server is busy errors, guess I was wrong about them being fixed

    but anyway, yeah they are. I love getting a table full of cowboy looking guys at work because I know I don't really have to watch my language and I can just be real with them. Also, they tip well and are nice.

    Unlike, 80% of my other tables.

    I had a table last night sit there in my section for an hour and a half AFTER we closed (I had to stay and wait for them to get up since we're not allowed to leave until everything in our section is clean) and then they left me $5 on 100. Which, since tip pool is 3.5% of the sales, I made $1.50 off of them.

    Edit: Nogs, why doesn't he just get his certification then? That's an excellent thing to have on a resume since so many companies do business with Japanese partners.

    Different people like different things. Some ladies like their dudes with long hair, others like their dudes with short hair. I don't see any logic in presuming that women who like guys with long hair are fat, other than... No, I don't see it.

    Personally, I like my hair fairly short, but Rachel likes it medium-length. Problem is that it stays the length she prefers for maybe a few weeks before it gets too long, starts getting in my eyes, and goes vaguely mullet-y.

    what kind of restaurant do you wait at, if you don't mind me asking

    I live in Houston, and it's a Cajun seafood restaurant, Pappadeaux to be exact.

    Our prices are middle-range (the average entree is around $25) but with the gas prices and everything going up, instead of not eating out, people are still eating out but they are tipping less which makes no sense at all.

    I don't want to get into it but we have one subset of customers that just doesn't tip ever no matter how good the service was. It's apparently like this at every restaurant in this area too according to some of my friends who wait at other places.

    Edit: Oh, we also had a table last night of 30 people get in an argument with our managers because they refused to pay gratuity and then they all just walked out with paying at all.

    One of the life lessons I learned as a young un was that shit happens. Yeah it's a cliche line. I just figured that there's a lot of shit happens that's outside of my control. Sometimes it's bad, sometimes it's good. I just try not to let it get to me.

    There's also the line by Riddick "I play the cards that life dealt me, and then I cheat."

    Because you know. Riddick plays by nobodies rules.

    Except his own. Even then he still cheats.
