I just got into argument with my dad about how I refuse to use a debit or credit card because I don't want Visa or whoever knowing my business, nor do I want a hacker accessing my bank account. Being that he's ignorant old fart who favors convenience over anything else, he acted like I'm making baseless claims about everything I said.
It turns out this waitress I've been telling you guys about is now a liar. Rather than telling me she did have a boyfriend to my face, she decides to mention it off-handedly in a phone call, and acts like it slipped her mind. While I have no problem with her dating someone else, I do have a problem with her not being completely up-front about everything she says. Now I'm keeping her at arms-length for the time being.
Some of you have been seeing my statuses about this waitress at work I'm interested in. She said she wasn't interested in dating because she's busy with school and work, so I was thinking that finding small ways to show I'm committed could make our relationship work. However, I now realize I wasn't being respectful towards her decision to not date me, and because of that, I've decided to no longer pursue her.
At work today, I told this waitress I'm interested in "Even if you and I don't end up together, I still want to do what I can to help bring out the best in you, because I see the powerful woman inside." That led to me giving her a book I've had called The Warrior Within, which is about Bruce Lee's philosophy on life. Hopefully that helps her become the best version of herself.
I recently completed my transition from T-Mobile to Verizon, and I finally upgraded my phone. Rather than going from an old school flip phone to a smartphone, I got a rugged flip phone instead. I haven't had a smartphone since my last one broke around 2018 or so, and being that I don't want or need all of these pointless apps or distractions that comes with having one, I'm happy with my new phone so far.
I'm switching from T-Mobile to Verizon, and I was attempting to contact customer service to learn if there's any costs aside from getting a new phone and activating it. For some weird reason, I can't access a chat room using LibreWolf, but it works perfectly fine when using FireFox.
While my mom's always had respiratory problems (partially due to living near the steel mills in Chicago as a child), she recently was admitted to the hospital because of how bad her chronic cough was. She thankfully came home a few minutes ago, but still had a coughing fit because of how dry the air in the hospital was.
Idk how it is by you, but by me, it seems like the fear of Covid is finally out of people's heads for the most part. What's even more interesting is very few of these stores are giving anyone who's maskless a hard time (probably because the staff are no longer afraid of Covid). Because of this and other reasons, Klaus Schwab's fear of a massive revolt will soon become a reality.
It turns out that my coworkers were dressing up as the Jersey Shore to parody them, but never bothered to tell me that. Realizing I now made an arse of myself last night, I apologized for my transgressions and we're on good terms again.
Because Sunday's football day at work, we had a Halloween party tonight instead. Some of the staff decided to go as the Jersey Shore (my guess is they somehow find that filth "entertaining" from how they were talking about it), so in response to that, I repeatedly ripped on them for doing that. Granted, I did hit below the belt to an extent, so now I know where to draw a line.
Although I've been wanting to get into this for a while now (but work and other distractions keep getting in the way), I'm going to make myself draw cover art and submit it to job boards. Hopefully if I hit home runs with my clients, I'll have consistent business with them, and they'll refer me to anyone they know. (Wishful thinking) it'd be awesome if I was hired by big-name rockstars for one of their future albums.
Some of my coworkers have been trying to push me to ask this one waitress out, and I told them that I'm not interested in her because of the age difference, among other reasons. However, the more I've gotten to know her, the more I realized that I hesitated expressing my feelings for her. Although I friendzoned her, hopefully she'll understand my opinion of her has changed.
Because my gym shoes are starting to get beat up from work, I'm going to take myself shoe shopping on Tuesday and get a few pairs of casual shoes
Update: Because size 14 shoes (or "gunboats" as my grandmother would call them) are becoming harder to find in most shoe stores these days, I managed to find one pair at a big and tall shop. I wonder how hard it is for Bigfoot to find shoes in his size?
While I have faith in cybersecurity experts, I was thinking about how FontOnLake could be turned into ransomware in the sense of demanding control over the grid. If hackers or the elite can control that, and introduce a social credit score, they can therefore bring an uninformed and unprepared population to their knees. While I'm not crapping my pants in fear over that, it's still a realistic possibility.
