My last exam of the semester is tomorrow evening. [bleep]. Then one more day of work and I can drive home in two days. A good ~100km drive, so not too bad. Hopefully doesn't snow too hard... even though I have my winters on.

Letting her control the logistics is a bad idea IMO... I always just do drinks or coffee for dates. I only had a restaurant date like once or twice when I was a total beginner. If I were in your shoes I would’ve said something like “I’m just going to want to relax that night— had a long stressful week. Let’s just hang out and talk [at my place -or- over drinks]

Keep doing whatever you’ve been doing with the girl complaining about not seeing you enough. If you start seeing her more often because she’s complaining about it, her interest in you will go down


We're both driving, so drinks are off the table. This one, if it does go right, is way more than a hook up. Known her for 8 years, but as I said, always thought she out of my league, so never really even considered asking her out.
But damn, I did already have a bit of a crush on her back then and she still hot as. And not only that, but she also interested in quite a few of the same stuff.

My advisor forwarded me a internship request he received from the dean ... who received it from Epic Games.

Ugggggggh. It's for the summer, but it's a full-time paid internship. 40 hours/week for 3.5 months. There's no way my jobs would give me 3.5 months leave. Plus it would screw with SS. But May is still 6 months away...

It all depends on what response I get from my game come February. If I can have a Patreon or some other mechanism with enough passive income to cover roughly ~1/2-2/3 of what I make now (it's really not that much), I'd definitely do it.

I'm still going to apply, even if I just get an interview I'd be over the moon :).

The commute would roughly be one hour, one way, lol.

Could try and get the internship as a part time, work from home thing. I'd guess you have better credentials than most of the people applying, so they might be willing to consider it.

go for it. experience like that is crucial. the connections you'll make cpoild be life changing. companies dont give a rats ass about grades or what unrelated job you worked in school, its all about who you know and paid relevant experience. tightening the belt for a few months will pay off 100x in the lng run

Agreed.

 

I'm doing this very shortly myself. Potential opportunity with the OPS even though it's a bit rocky considering the new government, but great experience nonetheless.

I just have 1 drink, sometimes 2. Never more than that, since were always both driving

Eu laws about drinking and driving are a lot more strict than US laws.

Varies by country. In at least a couple I was in, the driver couldn't drink *anything*. However, all the passengers could drink in the vehicle as much as they wanted....which was an awesome law tbh (at least for a week long road trip)

Zero tolerance for drunk driving. Here, for first occasion, depending on blood alcohol content just a massive fine is the easiest you can get away with, but starting from second time you lose license or risk jail time. If you are drunk as, it is a criminal offence and you can go to jail already for first offense.
In Norway, automatically lose license at least for a month. Even for first occasion and 0.01ppt. If they've had a single beer before a big meal they still call the cab, cause the thing is harsh. In addition to losing license, at least a 1200 dollar fine and possible jail time.

They just upped the drinking and driving laws here. Not too much though.

did they? didn't hear about that, unless you're referring to breathalyzing without probable cause, which was part of the legalization of marijuana

Yeah, like saq said, in some places anything above 0% BAC is illegal. How strictly that's enforced is hard to tell, I'd guess not that strictly, but it's still a thing.
