    icon15.gif I'm baaaaaaaaaack

    Still unemployed, but am pulling in enough money to pay for rent now, so I no longer entirely count as a freeloader; that counts for something, right? Eh, probably not.

    I just got lucky and my daughter's SSI benefits are substantial enough for me to take care of what's important for us to survive while I focus on being a single dad until she gets older and doesn't need quite as much direct attention anymore; works out pretty well in my mind, at least for the next little while.

    I'm starting to wonder if being in drag on my Facebook profile pic is making me seem less desirable as an employee. I'll change that before doing any more applications, whenever I put myself back on the job market; shouldn't be a problem, but some people don't like it if you have a dick and wear a dress. *shrug*

    Big tax return mostly went to paying debts and getting some shit to try and sell for profit, but I also picked up a NeoSD (along with some cheap TG16 games and a few albums on vinyl and cassette), and that's why I'm back here again with you beautiful bastards.

    I guess I only feel like coming here when playing a lot of Neo Geo.

    Luckily, I'm too broke to make much use of the marketplace, so you guys at least know I'm not a leech, huh?

    I don't feel like talkng to people for long stretches of time just because depression is a bitch. But I feel pretty good right now.

    Who wants to try and knock me down a few pegs? I know you guys have it in your hearts and souls.

    Love you all. <3

    P.S. Sorry about the wall of text; brevity's never really been my thing.

    Glad to hear you’re seeing your daughter as the number one priority in your life over everything else.

    Hopefully you bought your daughter some fun things to enjoy with that tax return and didnt splurge it all on yourself.

    Life’s a balance

    I have been. We've been going out and finding her some new clothes, as well as various toys. The one that's interesting enough to warrant a mention is a VTech VSmile system I found with about 5 or 6 games for $20 at the local thrift shop, though she's a bit young to play with it now. Beyond that, it's been pretty typical toddler toys; baby dolls, balls, etc.

    She is smart enough to try and play on arcade style sticks, though I don't think she's yet reached the age where she can discern what actions she's performing. She just sees me play it and mimics it, but it's still fun to let her sit there and pretend to play on player 2 (for like two minutes until she gets bored and runs off to play with some other toy).

    I've also been trying to curb my swearing while playing video games around her; I did not realize how often I used "Cocksucker!" as a generic insult until I kept cutting myself off right after yelling, "Cock!"

    I guess to be fair, if she picks up the word "cock," it's still better than "cocksucker," at least. Somewhat, anyway.

    Maybe reduce the drug consumption? Might be easier on the finances + make you more employable.

    The only drug I consume regularly is marijuana, and I haven't gotten far enough in my attempts to be drug-tested; well, unless using mushrooms and/or DXM about twice a year counts as "regularly," anyway.

    Also, the weed is practically free, since my whole family smokes and we all grow together. Nice to finally be in a legal state.

    Not bad logic on your part, though, so I can't knock that.

    You are unemployed, live off your daughters SSI and just recently bought a NEOSD.

    Not only that he is buying boxes of video game shit to resell on ebay. With no job and no income I wonder where that money is coming from....

    A bunch of forty-something video-gaming nerds that are only keyboard commandos and mostly sedate pussies any other hour of the day cannot really be all that aggressive, can they? (My self included.)

    I love the lads here, this forum in general, and the mentality but lets not kid ourselves about this being some sort of dark web tough corner of the world.

    He's already mentioned something about his whole family being bongheads and growing/selling it so I imagine they just get blitzed all fuckin day and buy shit.

    Yes, you are. I had the lead for so long, and you swooped in the last couple of days and had me beaten by what, like 100,000 points or so? Hahaha.

    Good job on that score for real, though. Mighty impressive.

    Parents offered me a place to stay, had no luck finding work after getting fired, and my daughter gets almost $500 a month, $400 of which goes to my parents to help pay rent/bills, I get to spend time with my daughter after the bullshit life threw at us. Not like I'm the only single dad with a sad story, but yeah, I like being able to spend time with my daughter, finances are covered for the whole family, and my parents have more or less asked us to stay with them, so yeah, I feel responsible enough at this time.

    Like I said in the post, big tax return from the amount of time I worked before getting fired in 2017. Decided to try and make some money; I think that's a pretty reasonable decision. I don't feel like saying exactly how much I got, but I can say that the NeoSD was under 10% of the entire amount I received.

    Everybody is indeed a pothead, but we don't sell it. We smoke too much to have any left for that. My dad works at a headshop currently, if that's close enough for your tastes, though. As for buying shit all day... I wish, that'd be fun.

    I actually prefer the cough gel capsules, but yeah, more or less. What's wrong with that? I mean, if I did it while my daughter was in my care, yeah, that's totally fucked up. But I do it like twice a year if even that much, and never when I'm watching my daughter; if I'm tripping, my daughter is not directly in my care, because she's spending the night hanging out with grandma.

    I like the job idea, but I don't want to quit purple drank. I mean, I'd have to actually start doing it first before I could even quit, and what if I just really liked it and didn't want to quit at that point?

    Just sad.

    Goddammit, I so doubt that it's a mutual feeling between us, but I love you. So much.

    I literally thought of you when I finally found a nice entertainment center. I'll take a picture later, just for you.
