My best friend died. He was closer to a brother. He did most of my tattoos, he was the first person to talk to me on the school bus when I moved from PA to NC. From then we were close the rest of his life.
I get asked frequently why I ride a motorcycle or go on camping trips by myself. I don’t have any friends that ride. I haven’t ridden with another motorcycle in 5-6 years. Yet, I feel consumed by the by the hobby and wouldn’t think about giving it up.

I was in the running for a Growth & Social Media Fellowship at that news company ATTN: and I even had, what felt like, a great interview. However, an hour ago, I received the rejection letter, and now I just want to drive off a cliff and hope for the worst. I’ve been laid off since April, and while I managed to land…
If someone told me 5 years ago that people were making money by copying and pasting comments -VERBATIM!- from Ask Reddit threads, I would have said “the world cannot be that stupid.”
Hmm, were to start....
Good evening Oppo,
I guess we should get this out of the way first. Greetings, fellow Oppos and Jalops, it’s certainly been a while, and I’ve genuinely missed you lot. My apologies for worrying you after my last time here. But a lot has changed in my life, and especially in my mind, and I’m here to share with you that change.
Ugh. Ever forget about a bill you set up to pay before going grocery shopping?
While rebuilding the desktop I built 4 years ago for this job I just left:
First, car related post.
