  1. So apparently a (small?) water main broke and a few stores got flood, so the furniture store is having an ongoing "Flood Sale."  I guess they needed to liquidate their stuff :/.


    Glorious use of a pun! :D

  2. I remember the roads between cities being packed with people talking about things...or going fishing with a buddy in karamja so you'd have someone to talk to. But now the vast land of runescape are dull and void, with only a handful of people dashing from one location to the next.

    Catherby beach was where all the poor people tried to make a living. So goofy but it was nice. Funny how remembering back it was like RS was a second life: "making a living", living economy, etc, etc.

  3. Debt.


    A couple of weeks back I decided to put the financial part of my life into gear and started working many more hours at my job. While I'm glad I have a feeling of purpose at my work (I used not to) it's quite sad to see hundreds of my hard-earned dollars go to debt I so naively, yet foolishly, took.


    A month or two more and I should be out of it. Can't wait for the day I gotta stop signing on that loan website.

  4. Got hired at Taco Bell. :thumbup:


    Hey man I got this coupon, I don't have it with me but trust me-


    Well done. Hopefully you don't get many [wagon] and idiots working in customer service. Good luck

  5. I have requested them to change my address twice. Never recieved anything.


    I went there in person, waited two hours, and got a filled-out piece of paper I could of done myself.

  6. Is OT really a place with "rich life experiences"? I mean, we've got a couple of people who go out partying way too often, but otherwise, nobody's really that out there. Mostly everyone's just in high school/college, and just doing that thing.



    Hey now, Saq's also a bit of a party guy these days. And we've got plenty of high quality types here, even within our regulars. Noxx lives a wild life of a pilot traveling between multiple countries, Blake works for a big ass tech corporation. Muggiw lives everyday fuller than most. Gabe has some political thing to get behind. Lets face it. Were a fairly interesting group of people.

    Exactly, you can't deny we have some interesting people here. It also reflects how bland my life is and friends are: go to work, drink, play video games.



  7. I hope everybody's life is going good and any problems you might have be solved quickly.


    I haven't posted on here in a while but I have been reading OT nearly daily. Lately though I feel sorta depressed. I was supposed to take classes this summer but got kicked out because my financial aid ran out and I didn't pay before the deadline (obviously I find out AFTER the deadline). I also requested my work hours shortened to attended class and only work the weekends. But with no classes I'm just stuck home for 5 days strait working 15ish hours a week.


    I'm bored out of my mind, I don't know what to do. I don't have many friends and it was always difficult to set up schedules to do just about anything. My best friend who I could rely on to hang out is planning on joining the navy once he loses the weight, which means our old great passtime of going out to eat is gone.


    It's mostly the boredom that is depressing me. Aside from going to Vegas to visit my sick uncle last weekend, I have done absolutely nothing for 4 days straight. I have things I want to do but not the motivation to do them, and this has been a problem long before the summer started. So I wrote a list, thinking I would only have four, five things. Now I'm staring at a full page of stuff: some minor (participate more in these forums, increase the pace of a comic I'm drawing) and others major (possibility convincing my friend not to join the navy, getting a girlfriend, learning a 3D program to make movies).


    And you know what it's helped. This list has really made me realize how much I wanted to do. I'm not one to share my feelings and such neither, like what I'm doing by writing this post...but I can't do the same things I'm been doing before.





    I'm not looking for advice here, but I wanted to get this out of my chest. You guys here are the only people I know with such rich life experience...I'm very jealous of it and want to join you guys by having rich, lively experiences myself. Tomorrow (as it's past midnight right now and am going to bed) I'm going to do at least 3 things on my list, or things to bring me closer to them. You guys are a good motivator, keep up the good posts.



    So yeah, nearly a month of not posting and I come back with that... I never thought I'd open up so much but I guess desperate times calls for desperate measures. It felt good writing this.

    @Giordano: There's definitely a link between socioeconomic status and inequality, but surely, gender and racial inequality exist against the background of socioeconomic inequality, rather than in spite of it. Does a black woman on a similar income to a white man receive different levels of sexist and racist discrimination? Almost certainly.

    What discrimination she would get would not ruin her chance at achieving her goals or financial independence. I'm not saying racism/sexism doesn't exist, it is just not a relevant factor anymore.
