    Yeah my last job was basically 90% work from home unless I had to meet with clients. Did it for 4 years. Thought I would love it, but after a while working from home sucks. A lot of people I worked with who did it became social weirdos and never left their places. I got a new job 2 months ago, more money and back in an office. Office sucks also, don't get me wrong, but it's nice to hate your job in person. I do miss rolling out of bed at 845 and wearing sweats instead of sitting in traffic at 630 in the morning dressed like Trent during one of his court appearances though. I basically could have worked from anywhere I wanted as well which sounds cool, but traveling to a cool location when you're still working by yourself isn't as fun as it sounds.

    Mos def, I did a lot of work bumming around the USA as a freelancer and it was cool to be able to take those trips but on the days I even had to work a couple hours it barely felt like a vacation you know—cuz that work is always looming in the back of your mind. Which is why I ultimately decided to take a clean break and spend some of my savings which was soooo worth it.

    I think I wanna move back to an office job too cuz as you said it gets really lonely/boring/depressing after awhile (I swear it was starting to make me a social moron too)...my tentative plan right now is not sign a lease until the fall because I have friends' places I can bounce around for awhile (obvs will pay some rent $$$ if I end up staying more than a couple weeks, I just don't wanna be tied down somewhere with a lease) cuz I'm meeting some friends in Aruba in july and I figure while I'm already that far south I should hit Colombia, Peru, Argentina, and some other countries in south america.

    But yeah I'm hoping to find a job where I wfh two days a week and go in three days a week like my old job cuz that was the perfect balance. Either that or find some different and more varied freelance/contract work that involves more of going into offices and meeting with clients and such sometimes. I like people to be hands-off when I'm working most of the time, but check-ins and working alongside people is cool too. It's all about balance.

    From January of 2007 to November of that year I was living 2 weeks in Belize and working 8 weeks on the North Slope of Alaska... I was netting around $2700 a week in wages from the Slope (on the Slope it is all income, no out go... the room and board is provided for... there is 100 hours of work and the nearest legal drink is 300 miles away over rough terrain) all I did was work when I was on the Slope... I had rented my first condo out and put my stuff at my dad's for storage... So, I was in my mid 20's and paying $0 for rent or mortgage and collecting rent and bringing over $20k in paychecks and $2k in rent paid to me every time I went to the bank.

    The very first person I talked to in Belize was Cammy, the front desk girl who checked me into my room at the Princess Hotel/Casino in Belize City the first time I went there... she was a very pretty 19 year old half black, half Chinese stacked girl who I dated for the whole year of 2007.

    Every time I would go back to Belize I had a different living arrangement... I would rent a mansion on the beach on a Caye... or the biggest suite in the nicest hotel in a city.. and every time I got a price it would be about half of what I expected it to be... then Cammy would argue them down to half of that... like they were insulting me and trying to rip me off when I would have gladly paid 5x as much because I was so good rich at the time... the she would act like I bought her a Tiffany and co. tennis bracelet when I took her out and got us a $20 meal with drinks.

    Pretty fun times.

    I'm not really trying to flex on this... you went to Central America... I spent a 1/4 of 2007 there... it was documented on rapbasement and Myspace at the time.

    Yeah, they've started this thing called AFLX in the preseason where it's like a shortened/quicker version of AFL as a way to try and sell it to overseas markets with there being four superhero-themed teams captained by a star and they then do a mini draft this Wednesday. (No one cares about it but Marvel's definitely taking over/funding it).

    Dude takes everything you say negatively lmao. That's why I reckon he's miserable IRL. posting his cash and shit to the same forum group for a bout a decade now isn't it? It's so fun just to call bullshyt then watch Res set up his f--king legal defence and present evidence like it's a fucken court room
