High and low point of your day

Postby Benitosimies » Fri Sep 21, 2007 10:12 pm UTC

High - Starting to learn the words to Ievan Polka, and getting my bed made (I never make my bed I'm worse than a kid), and reading the number one here.

Low- AGGRAVATED PUBIC RAZOR BURN

The high and the low were probably the same event- being flirted with by a girl who is the exact spitting image of one of my good friends, only older. Very wierd.

Best point: Making sushi in my hospitality class! And eating a whole roll myself. Mmmmmmmmm.

Worst point: I'm going on a date with my ex tomorrow (yeah, it's weird) and I'm all scared of being hurt again and I got really depressed thinking about it.

Yeah.

Why are you doing that? Dare I say that he is an ex for a reason? It should probably stay that way. anyway, its off-topic but I fail to see why people torture themselves this way... masochist?

High point: Sushi dinner with friends

Low point: "I only have feelings for you as a friend"

Yeah. Those don't balance out real good.
So, I got tired of the fact that the appearance of my band name in my signature made my posts on this forum the dominant result when googling for my music. Anyway, if you think I might happen to be a good musician, you can test this theory here.

It's only halfway through the day, but:

High Point: Watching Law & Order while drinking a nice cup of green tea while watching a friend go deep in his matchplay tournament.

Low Point: Nothing specific. Not having left the house today is a bit of a low, so I'll say that.

High - Lie in. Fantastic. :D

Low - Having to cancel going out to dinner with friends because Guy-Hoping-For-My-Affections-But-I-Only-Like-As-A-Friend would be there. Which sucks because I didn't want it to be awkward, but it uh, was.

Low 2 - Coughing up a lung every three minutes. Yes, literally. What of it.



Edit: Cheers, A.O. It didn't look write when I was posting it, but I didn't bother checking properly. D:

High: Getting a 30GB external hard drive for $12. [And talking to the one person on Earth who I get along with completely. Of course, I do that every day, so.]

Low: We're doing a project in Illustrator for graphic design, and of course, I did it differently than the stupid teacher said we should [Because her way just plain sucks.], and now I can't print it out the way she wants [also stupid], and now I have to figure out a way to fix it, or completely start over.

This is why I hate graphic design classes. They don't 'teach' you correctly, and they make you do stupid, unnecessary shit. And then they have the nerve to go and say "This is a great class with up-to-date software, fast computers, and the teacher knows everything!"
The teacher is an idiot, the software is old, and the computers are slow. It's bullshit. That class is for the computer illiterate at most, which I most certainly am not.
In fact, if I showed the teacher what I do without her "help" [see 1, 2, 3.], she'd look at it and go "Did you make those?"
"Well, everything except the people."
"So you didn't make those?"
"...I made the background and the foreground, and made the pictures look better and stuff"
"Oh, so you didn't make them."
"No. I made the other stuff around them."
"Oh, well, that's good, I guess. What did you use to make it? Photoshop?"
"No, GIMP."
"GIMP? I don't know what that is. We use Adobe, so everything you think you know is wrong, and I know everything. Go sit down and do exactly what I tell you."

I'll tell my little story here. It contains highs and lows, mostly highs, but some devastating lows. This is over the last 24 hours.

I went to a friend's party, at her house. I decided not to have any alcohol, as I am drinking tonight, and I like being the sober person. I was wandering around, guarding alcohol and smokes for people, and generally being a nice guy. I saw this one girl, whom I recognised as the sister of the hostess, Anita. She seemed a little worse for the weather, so I sat down and chatted to her. I asked her name, and school, and whether she was doing alright. She said that Nao was looking after her, because this was her first party. I looked across the room, and saw Nao straddling Nathan. At this point I decided to be responsible, and asked how old she was. 14. I immediately removed her drink from her, and found her sister, and asked if she was allowed to drink. She was, and I felt like a real hard-arse. This was a low.

I then left the party, and went to the birthday function of another friend, at a bar. There I met some more friends, and then this one girl that I know from school, called Amy, called across to me. I don't usually talk to this girl. She hugged me, and said "You're really cool". Then she took my ponytail out, and told me that I looked much better with my hair loose.Then she began to run her fingers through my hair. High high high!
She turned to the older (40 or so) woman behind her and said "This is polly. He's really cool, and he looks good with his hair down."
Older drunk woman: "If you like him so much, why don't you fuckin' take him home and root him?" I am now giggling. Amy responds with "I'm a virgin." At this point I went outside, because I was afeared I would choke on some peanuts.

Then we left. Low. As we were on the bus, I get a text saying that young girl has passed out. Low low low. Now I feel really shit. The rest of the night was ok, but we got chased by the cops, and then when we got away, some of the drunker guys were doing stupid stuff with a tyre, and the local councilor drove up to us and warned us that there were more cops coming. So we ran away again. I got 3 hours of sleep, an got woken up by a dog. Low. But right now I'm eating hash browns, so high.

High - Coming home after another day of torment to someone I love.

Low - Yeah, I think you can glean the low out of the high.

Low - Watching some random TV show which reminded me all too much of a fight I'm having with a couple fiends

I get more cynical as the night goes on, does this happen to anybody else?

High: Being offered a freelance job moonlighting at an engineer's office as a draftsman. (yay for more money and something interesting to do!)

Low: Realizing that the man I just spent a month pretty much living with has moved on both physically and emotionally, and has sort of unilaterally decided to move our relationship backwards to "friendship" and is telling me about the girls he's meeting on his continuing travels.

Subsequent High: I now have much more time to keep up with my interblags and catch up on my reading.

Low: Realizing that I don't get any more sex, or co-showers, or sex *in* showers, and that sleeping alone sucks once you've found out what the alternative feels like.

Subsequent High: ... ... ...

Low: I've been so out of the world for this guy, I only found out today that Robert Jordan died on Sunday. So I'm in mourning for love, and sex, and one of my favorite writers. The world is not very shiny, right now.

High: Wrote a process for using a workbook I created from scratch used to sort out several reports from my project's database into a form able to be merged into a worksheet and gave it to my team leader and the group who would be using it, and getting very thanked for my work.

Low: Sat on the phone with a lady for probably 30 minutes while she badgered me as to why one of her employees had 800 dollars taken from his paycheck. I tried to explain it multiple times and she wouldnt get it through her head.

The thing about being a graphic designer is that you have to follow directions all the time. You don't just get some sort of job where the client lets you run wild and do whatever you want. They have project guidelines and all sorts of lame and retarded requests that make no sense.

Also, as good as you think you are, you have lots to learn.

Yeah, but all they care about is the end result. My way ended up exactly the same [if not better] than hers. And if they are telling me step-by-step how to do it, or think there way is better than mine, they could have just done it themselves, so fuck that.

Also, as good as you think you are, you have lots to learn.

Obviously, but I'm not going to learn it in this class. Honestly, I'd be better off spending an hour online every day looking at tutorials.
