    A New Found Glory concert attended by grown people in 2016.  

    I tend to block out the possibility of such things occurring but it's certainly believable.

    I'm planning on moving back to the US at the end of the year and I'm in a constant state of anxiety as to where to put my current income. Currency fluctuations are not enjoyable when you don't have enough freedom to just park half your salary in one and half in the other.

    Decided to say fuck it, quitting my job at the end of summer and working on a start up business idea I've been working on. Moving to California for a few months to replenish my vitamin D levels and to recruit talent/get investors.

    Real work is just too awful.

    That is great and exciting for you. Can't wait to hear more details about the business. I'm sure if it is fashion related it is going to be terrific.

    Thanks Nick, I would like to say I'm nervous about it but I'm not yet as we haven't started going after investment money just yet.

    And for damn sure it is fashion related. I'm still working on my 10 second pitch but its a platform that allows independent designers to sell their collections under a crowdfunding-inspired, no-risk, All-or-nothing model where full scale production and manufacturing are outsourced to us, while at the same time providing and online portfolio for them to pitch to wholesalers and store buyers. Customers will just get to buy new awesome shit you can't get anywhere else direct from the designer.

    Saving up enough to have 6 months of rent and 6 months of student loan payments (and prob a wedding ring), and jumping into it sink or swim.

    My latest fantasy is quitting my current job and moving to wine country to get some experience in the food industry. Joining the Michael K's of the world. I have nothing but fantasies.

    I just want to have a quesadilla pop up.

    Shit's all weird over here in job land. Well into my last month of free paid leave, but prospects on hold. I have a couple interviews lined up for government agency positions, but they're not until late June. So that leaves me in this weird unemployed and unwilling to commit to anything until I figure out whether those jobs are a fit or not. Debating whether I should go balls deep in learning Russian and taking the government test, or whether I should just be a bartender for a spell. Adulthood is dumb.


    Also, I have no idea what this means, but I agree.

    As in a "pop up restaurant". A food service company without a brick-and-mortar restaurant. You show up at farmer's markets, charity events, food truck pods, and other events and sell quesadillas.

    Best thing I made last night was some Yucatecan escabeche de cebolla. It's red onions pickled in a solution of bitter orange juice, peppercorns, salt, allspice, and bay leaf. They're phenomenal and will be available with every dish at my quesadilla cart.

    Roast tomatillo salsa verde and roast poblano crema are also winners, but the renditions I made last night aren't as perfectly balanced as I'd like.

    You ever had a quesadilla with the outside crusted in cotija cheese bro?

    Work just sucks on days the entire company basically decides to bring their lunch from home and the microwave is just a line from 11:45 and on. I don't know when I'm going to be able to get at my leftovers.

    I have an informal skype call with a venture capitalist in about a week and a half, from whom I'm going to try to source good seed fund connections. I'm debating if I should try to half-pitch during our skype call.

    Tell him he is a piece of shit and that the workers are going to seize the means of production soon. He will love that.

    Or maybe hit him with a question about his offshore bank accounts. Find out if he is implicated in these Panama papers.

    In all seriousness, good luck in your endeavors but I can't imagine that you think this message board is a good place to seek advice about how to approach an informal Skype conversation with a venture capitalist. I have a hard time sympathizing with that.

    Strange that you don't sympathize with me discussing this topic with a group of bros I've been communicating with for over 10 years, many of which are knowledgeable professionals who have experience in business communications, legal dealings, and starting businesses.

    But yet you will divulge every last detail about your personal life on the same forum: Your sexual escapades or lack there of, your parties and random road trips, your entire thesis proposal, your opinions on esoteric philosophers and social figures, Indian girls, your political inclinations, on and on and on. And I'm sure we're going to get your expert exposition on the Panama Papers, an investigation that took over 100 different journalistic outlets over a year to conduct and that you already have a brilliant fucking opinion on.

    I wouldn't expect you to sympathize, you aren't who I was talking to when I posted that earlier. I have a hard time understanding why you would think I was.

    The sad thing is that banning WP64 would reduce board activity by roughly 80%.  Additionally, doing so would cause his quality of life to improve significantly more than that of other boarders.  It's looking like a "lose-lose" situation to me.

    I don't have any expert opinion on the Panama papers though. And I don't claim to have any expert opinion on anything. Talking a lot and having opinions is very different than being the self-absorbed, pretentious asshole that you just described me as.
