Hooray! 2018!
We did it!  :D

This is the year Rollerball takes place apparently.

I have never seen Rollerball.

Let's all watch it and laugh at the probable lack of flat-screened computing devices.

I would be open to this.

Whatever happened to that chat website that let you sync up videos to watch with people?

There are probably several different versions now that nobody knows about.

Important point.

But comparing nearly identical websites comes with its own problems.

Which one has the best features to malware ratio?
Which one has the least chat lag for second by second riffing?
The least uncomfortable unrelated banner ads in case people walk by and see my screen?
People with opinions?

There's a world of research to open up here and I will have to get back to you.
It may take years before I reach a conclusive answer.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Hopefully so!
How has your 2018 been so far?

Awful.

I found on payday last Friday that I'm not being paid my final paycheck until next month because somebody else messed up. I was not told until I asked. I have heard nothing back. Although I have just completed by exit questionnaire. Precisely one 'satisfied' answer, and that's only because I like some members of staff.

I don't have a job. I'm back living with my parents, far away from my friends. I don't feel constructively creative. Everything just feels out of my control.

Haseri!
I'm sorry to hear you're going through a difficult time.
I'm not great at advice, but you're a talented person and your presence is always appreciated and I genuinely hope the best for you.

Thanks sgore. At my most positive, I'm trying to see this as a reset, and I was paid my deposit, so I have some money at least.

I've probably passed the lowest point. I have a path of sorts, and I'm letting myself have fun, like auditioning for an improv marathon (26 hours of long-form improvisation) this evening.

I also did actually do one of my new year's resolutions: a creative writing blog. It's pretty empty at the moment, but I alternate days between writing and job hunting.

We're all rooting for you, Haseri.  I've found that it helps to set smaller goals to help give you a sense of accomplishment, like turning in x job applications a day.
Probably not a Goat, either.
