Update time

 

+Work is still the same. I was expecting it to finally hit me with some wave of panic but its been a steady ride so far, despite some trouble within the corporate structure itself.

 

+On the relationship front? Its getting stagnate already and that’s because of the routine we are forced to deal with. These “lunch dates” aren’t doing it for us anymore so when we do take our trip later in July, it’ll be very much welcomed. I know it doesn’t make sense, but we live 30 minutes apart and she works the night shift…but I happen to work a mere 5 miles from her house…so we just have lunch “dates”…as I said in the previous update…thing will change (for the better) once school starts for us.

 

+My father, (I don’t know if I have mentioned him before or not) finally got a hair-cut this afternoon. This is monumental because it was the first time in 6 years he cut his hair (and that was just at the request of his dying mother, just weeks before her passing).

 

It’s beyond awkward. I’ve always known him to have obscenely long hair but now that he is reaching the gray hair stage of life, he hacks it off all for a purpose that he resents. (his daughter’s wedding).

 

I have had only one similar experience to this and that was with my beard back in 2003. For 11 months, I never brought a razor to my face (which is topped by clean shaved head). It had become my identity around town, I had the Mountain man beard, as opposed to the hobo beard. I finally cut it off for reasons I don’t recall but I remember the shock of seeing my bare face for the first time in 11 months. I was almost paralyzed in fear.

 

Since then, I’ve grown out my hair and kept it at acceptable business style length and kept the beard neatly trimmed because it is in the opinion of many that I am just downright better looking with stubble-ish beard as opposed to the clean shaved or mountain beard deal.

 

+I am buying a new car in September. In 5 years of driving, I have owned 3 cars...

 

My first car, was a hand me down from my uncle 1993 Chevy Lumina. I was 15 and still running on the temps, when he was going to junk the car but I asked if I could have it so I wouldn't have to buy my own car right away once I got my license. He handed me the keys...

 

I used the car only as practice for 6 months and I never had any personal attachment towards it. Once I had my license, I kept that car for 3 more months until I bowed down to peer pressure and sold it for a measly $800 bucks and then I brought this...1999 Dodge Avenger. I loved this car as it looked good, drove good and had a fantastic sound system already installed.

 

I kept this car for 2 years and loved driving it but I agreed to help my sister out after her car blew up and instead of making her buy a new car(she could barely pay for college), I gave her my car and brought a 2002 F-150 lightning

 

I have driven this truck ever since and I'm going to keep it as my company vehicle (as the one we have is old anyways and they are basically buying it off me)...so I don't know what to get.

 

I don't want another truck for all the obvious reasons as well as just plain tired of driving one. I'm looking towards another mid-size car like the first two but they weren't good on gas mileage (which wasn't a concern for me then, but is now) but I refuse to get one of those generic Camry's or whatever.

 

I'll keep you updated on the car hunt status.

sounds good

Interesting. His hair musn't grow too fast.

Yeah, things like that can take awhile to get used to. Just give it time.

You don't come off as the bearded type of individual. I know a person who has an extremely thick beard. Sometimes bugs get caught in it. Did that ever happen to you?

 

Maybe you should go for the Great Antonio or the Cuban Assasin bearded look. May as well try to copy the Assasin's hair look as well while you're at it.

 

Since then, I’ve grown out my hair and kept it at acceptable business style length and kept the beard neatly trimmed because it is in the opinion of many that I am just downright better looking with stubble-ish beard as opposed to the clean shaved or mountain beard deal.

 

Do you ask people this?

Sweeeeeeeeeet, what are ya looking at?

 

My first car, was a hand me down from my uncle 1993 Chevy Lumina. I was 15 and still running on the temps, when he was going to junk the car but I asked if I could have it so I wouldn't have to buy my own car right away once I got my license. He handed me the keys...

 

Super Cool uncles throw you the keys instead of handing them to you. Still, your uncle sounds pretty cool.

 

I used the car only as practice for 6 months and I never had any personal attachment towards it. Once I had my license, I kept that car for 3 more months until I bowed down to peer pressure and sold it for a measly $800 bucks and then I brought this...1999 Dodge Avenger.

measly $800? Honostly, is this a gimmick of yours?

 

I kept this car for 2 years and loved driving it but I agreed to help my sister out after her car blew up and instead of making her buy a new car(she could barely pay for college), I gave her my car and brought a 2002 F-150 lightning

 

That's pretty sweet of you. I like to help my sisters out as well.

 

I have driven this truck ever since and I'm going to keep it as my company vehicle (as the one we have is old anyways and they are basically buying it off me)...so I don't know what to get.

 

That truck is unbelievably ugly and wimpy looking. A guy shouldn't drive them. My father's trucks are way better. They're the Fit Finlays of trucks.

 

I don't want another truck for all the obvious reasons as well as just plain tired of driving one. I'm looking towards another mid-size car like the first two but they weren't good on gas mileage (which wasn't a concern for me then, but is now) but I refuse to get one of those generic Camry's or whatever.

 

If you don't get a truck than how are you going to get through various roads? The rocks will hit the bottom of the car. Than you'll also have that getting stuck problem. Sure, on the highway you're okay but what all the other roads?

 

I'll keep you updated on the car hunt status.

 

Can't wait. When do you think the next update'll be?

For whatever reason, I will actually reply to you.

 

I don't go around asking people's thoughts on my facial hair status, I just gauge it upon the compliments i get when not bearded and the fact people like ex's for example telling me they perfer the stubble over the beard/clean shaved. I do agree with them that I do look better stubbled rather then bearded/shaved.

 

$800 wasn't much because I could have gotten more for it. It still was in good shape and drove well. I just sold it after the first offer because I just wanted to get rid of it.

 

It's not "sweet" of me to help my sister out, I'm still waiting for her to return the favor in some way. It's hardly the first time I've done something like this for her. Thankfully, she'll have a husband (while a nice guy, is a total dolt with general stuff like mechanically natured stuff) to use.

 

The truck was a truck, I didn't buy it for performence or look although it did its job well enough. I was 18, I didn't need some big hossified truck or a boring compact car. I'm keeping it for work because our old truck is 15 years old and the repair costs weren't worth it (alot of idiots drove this truck over the years).

 

 

What other roads? I live in suburbian USA. It's one giant paved land mass.
