Guys I really need to find a job, but I'm terrible at finding jobs and interviews.

I'm going to get some water flavor stuff, then cut my pop back to hopefully 100 oz a week to start.  I wish it would get warm here even to the 50 degree mark. I could go out and get some exercise on my bike. I need to get out and do stuff sitting around here just gives me more time to drink pop. Unfortunately next weeks highs might not even make it above 20 degrees.

I can't remember if I suggested this before, but have you considered buying the flavored water enhancer stuff like MiO?

I know Kroger has them ($3.50 each), plus a store brand that comes in a few flavors ($2.50) that tastes just as good. Each one will make like 5-8 liters of beverage depending on how strong you like it, basically tastes like Kool-aid and has no sugar. Breaks down to about $0.80/2-liter. I usually substitute this for a coke if it's close to bedtime (the type of sugar in this stuff just passes through you, plus no caffeine and no calories).



I have actually tried those and the worked somewhat but they were not quite pop like. Also I tired on the flavor. I should try them again though because they work enough to help me cut down on pop. Also I tried the Kool Aid ones also I think I liked that better. The sweetness in the is not the same as in pop and I can taste the difference. I don't shop at Kroger anymore either since they fired me neither do my parents.

 So this evening I went out to buy some milk. I went to Rite Aid, I wanted to buy some pop so I decided to try the Rite Aid brand of Mountain Dew type pop. This was quite the mistake the pop is drinkable but not very tasty. I think I'm going to have to cut it with actual Mountain dew or with Faygo Moon Mist which is a good knock off of Mountain Dew. I would just dump it but I can't waste pop. So a little advice don't buy the store brand pop a lot of the time it is not good. I knew this but took a risk on it.

Also I think I'm unemployable, If I found a job they would just fire me after a month. People don't seem to like me.

So their going to ask me questions in front of a bunch of people, that is not going to be good. I get very anxious in that kind of situation.

Will being unemployed make it more likely I get picked. I don't think they will ask about a pop addiction.

So I got a letter calling me for jury duty. I have never been before. It is in Detroit but it is a civil case i believe based on the location. According to the court website the location where I'm suppose to report to is for civil cases. I hope they don't pick me though I'm not a good judge of guilt. I go on March 11th at 8am.

I really should lose some weight before getting a suit. If I get a suit I want it to fit good though and be decent, I have heard you can get a suit for $200 dollars but I don't know how good it is.

congratulations, another five years will fly by. I have been here 10 years but have a low profile and not well known and don't have a lot of posts.

Just don't buy a black suit. A nice dark charcoal gray or dark navy blue is good for your first suit.

yeah everything I have read also says no black. Most say charcoal as a first suit. I'm wondering how much to spend.

I think I'm going to get a suit but I need to find out more about suits and different styles, and what I like.

300k is way to expensive, you can get a house in Detroit for way cheaper.

guys should I buy a suit. I have no use for a suit but I kind of want to buy one to have one. I could wear it around or to church. Not a super expensive one or anything but not too cheap I would have to have it tailored to me so it looks good.

Then I suppose I'm a fucking moron.  Thank you for pointing that out.  My life is now complete, having posted here for so many years and finally having met someone with your profound wisdom to shed some light my sorry state of existence.



I was criticizing your mindset when you got your first paycheque. (Not criticizing your current mental capacity; we all know you're a brilliant wordsmith, so there's no need to patronize me). The point of my post was that I want to know what really changed your views back then, because you had to have known the tax man was going to come down and take your money. Surely in associating with socialists this was not brought up?

I see it so often that people are liberal in there youth, but become conservative as they grow older. It's exemplified in that famous quote you mentioned. (a quote that truly irks me, in case that wasn't obvious).  I think the change for most people does come from seeing the tax man take their earned cash, but it seems bizarre to me that they wouldn't have thought about that before. After all, thinking about tax theory is at least part of an active political liberal.

I may not be 35 yet, but I do face many of the same challenges a lot of people go through when they make their political shifts. I have a decent job, and a family to raise. And yet, I have not made this political shift. If anything, many of my experiences have shifted me more to the left. Perhaps I am still to young, and still have a "heart". But as a parent, I'm rather grateful for that trait.

Good post.  I hate that quote on getting conservative as you age. I have moved to the left as I got older. Some of it may be the Republican party is crazy. But I turn 30 in 2 months and I'm the most liberal I have ever been although I'm not really that liberal. I'm not a huge fan of paying taxes and I don't like it when the money is actually misspent or wasted but that money goes to help a lot of people who are less fortunate than me. The real world has made me liberal I have seen way too many people work too hard and then hit a hard time and need help, or people just barely making it who need some food stamp help.

Yeah since I blew past my goal I had 91 oz of pop today putting my weekly total at 279oz almost double my goal. I was doing great up until Friday night. I will have the same goal this week 140 oz limit.

Kerry Bentivolio, HP. The district is just Republican enough to keep electing him baring a Democratic wave year.

Gerald Ford's library is in Ann Arbor Michigan and the museum is in Grand Rapids. Ford went to college at the University of Michigan, but his congress district was based around Grand Rapids. Maybe Obama could have a library and museum separate in two different cities.

Also has anyone been to a presidential library? Ann Arbor is only 20 minutes away and it is free to get into the library, maybe I should check it out.

Bushie has posted about some really stupid things. Pop addiction is not that stupid.

Also I had 24 oz of pop today bringing the weekly total to 92 oz. I feel I'm doing very well since there have been single days were I was over 100 oz.
 

Personally I think more people here should start a update thread.

ugh today I blew it and had 64 oz of pop, I had 32 oz yesterday so because of todays pop I have broke my limit of 140 oz for the week. I'm now at 188 oz for the week. This is still quite a bit under the 300+ oz I can easily drink in w week but I'm upset that I drank over 140 oz. I will have to try again next week to stay under 140 oz.

$1000 dollars a month where do you live Detroit? Probably not it would probably be higher if you did. Even Michigan has high car insurance.
