    Looks like I won't get paid on time again. I know I shouldn't be this selfish and I should be a reasonable adult, but I really want to quit..."

    "

    I'm so conflicted right now. Do I quit or do I stick with a job I don't like? I have enough money saved up to cushion me for awhile, but is it the responsible thing to do? What if I can't get another job right away? Will future employers shun me? I know this is my decision to make and I shouldn't force it onto anyone else, but times like this I wish someone would just make the decision for me. Damn decisions..."

    ^ Ah, I know how you feel. It's up to you, of course, but it does help to have another job lined up or at least to be looking for one, just as a precaution, but if you can afford to take the time off that's okay too! :>

    In my experience, a lot of jobs I've applied for have asked me to "

    explain any gaps in your employment record,"

    and a few interviewers have put me on the spot about it, but you could always say you were taking time off to improve your skills or learn something, work on a project, pursue other opportunities, spend time with your family, etc. .... I think the trick is just to find something positive to say about any situation, y'know? C:

    ^ I agree with Stitched. Line up alternatives before you consider dropping your job. Just for practical reasons. And then kapow, you're still a reasonable adult.

    ^Thanks for the advice, guys! Working at a job I hate going on two years just makes me feel miserable, but I know I shouldn't make any important decisions on a whim. I still don't know what I want to do with my life, and I guess it scares me that I might wake up at 30 and still be at this place.

    "

    Okay, maybe I was over reacting at the time. I've calmed down and cleared my head. I probably should wait until I hear back from another job first, though taking time off to do some soul searching does sound nice, but it isn't the responsible thing to do."

    I will never be okay with people calling a single pair of pants 'a pant.' No. That's not how it works. That's not how pants work. I don't even care which one is grammatically more correct or if there's some obscure 15th century manuscript justifying the use of 'pant,' it just makes me uncomfortable."

    "

    Well, what do we have here"

    , I thought to myself on saturday's morning. "

    This little *.rar archive has a very curious name, wouldn't you agree? (I sometimes to talk to myself, you see) 'Xenogears', is it?"



    I seemed to remember having some trouble with getting this collection of 1s and 0s to work when I first found it several months ago;

    riding out this bout of curiousity, I googled the problem and found out it belonged squarely between the chair and the keyboard - apparently ePSXe doesn't want to launch certain format of disk images directly and requires the user to point it towards the corresponding *.mds file instead. So up and onto the 'Run' menu option I clicked.

    ...sometime during today's morning I remembered this 'Tower of Babel' my playthrough yesterday seemed to indicate I will soon be heading towards was said to be the most frustrating part of the experience yet and decided to take a short break and check up with some of the forums I go to. Hopefully I will make it to the end of this adventure soon and will be able to participate in the other half of the forum without fear of spoilers and such.

    Hope to see you soon on the other side.
