Early in the year I was quite confident of getting a job soon, I had a number of interviews and was sure one would pan out. None did, and no further interviews are forthcoming. I think the job market got better, and then worse again.
I got hooked up with this thing evaluating web pages, which pays shit for something for which they demand a college graduate of above average intelligence. But you do it at home and it beats getting up at 5 to go to a temp job in a warehouse where you are treated like an idiot.
I have been reading “The 4 Hour Work Week” by Timothy Ferriss. It’s substantially self-promoting egotistical bullshit but the guy also has some good ideas. Basically his thing is come up with something you can sell on the internet, but “The 4 Hour Work Week” sounds a lot better than “Sell Stuff On The Internet”. But he’s a marketer first and foremost, as he would tell you. I would like to talk more about this, and my ideas, at some point.
I had some savings still and a lot of frequent flyer miles so I’m now visiting my Colombian girlfriend. It was a horrible mistake. She is upset by any display of negative emotion on my part, although of course the display of negative emotion on her part is perfectly OK. (We had only one incident of this last time I visited, so I didn’t think too muchof it, but several this time.) She is a nice person from a good family but not better than OK looking and I don’t really enjoy having sex with her. So why the hell am I involved with her? Inertia I suppose. I felt pretty kicked in the gut yesterday. Basically I’m over it. I don’t see any future.
I have to consider the life of a happy bachelor, since it seems bachelorhood has been forced upon me, so I may as well make it happy. It would be easier if I had some nieces and nephews, but my brother and sister have not reproduced either. I’m afraid of dying in a pool of my own filth in a charity rest home. Having relatives doesn’t guarantee that won’t happen, but it helps.
My internet access has been sporadic, but Roissy put up a thing on testosterone everybody is talking about-
This falls into the area of lifestyle management, which for the omega is the most important thing. I want to put up a review of these things soon, if not the next post.
