Neighbouring nursing student asked me to recommend her a good laptop. I take a look at her existing one and it's an ultra book in pretty much decent condition. I ask her what her issue with this one is and turns out there's not enough space on the hard disk (30 GB SSD). I advice her to consider upgrading instead of buying a new laptop and she agrees. She also asks me if I can fix the track par of the laptop as it's not working. I take a look at the system tray and then work my computer science magic (press the fn+F9 to activate the trackpad) and boom! It's a miracle and she's squealing with delight. I even ran a disk cleanup and wiped 3Gigs of space so that she could continue downloading the episode from Netflix.
I hear a lot of you people complain about being asked to do outrageous tech shit because you're a computer person but man, I sure love being the "tech guy". :D

    It's usually the ones with the social skills of a rock or just a pain in the ass to be around that bitch the loudest.

    Personally love being asked by friends to help them. They're usually so grateful, no matter how simple it actually is to solve. Makes my cold and bitter self happy to see them grateful and ecstatic.

    I don't mean to piss on your sushi, but it'll feel great until you've been taken advantage of.

    I don't mind helping out a friend occasionally, the problem is when it becomes a routine thing with no gratitude.

    @bols59 The knowledge I have is already there and comes free of cost. I don't spend money to help anyone. The only thing I spend is my time and effort which I give willingly only because and as long as it makes me happy. And in any case, I'm pretty smart to protect myself from being taken advantage of. :D
    And for the record, I don't like sushi so piss all you want on it gentleman. :p

    @exceptionalGuy but do you like the girl? 🤔
  • 1
    @irene Not in "that" way. :p
    She's a sweet, nice person though so I do like her.

    @exceptionalGuy even when she squeals? 😏
  • 2
    @irene Nope. Turns out squealing isn't my thing (idk how it could be anybody's tbh :p). Also, I happen to already have my eyes on another girl. :D

    @exceptionalGuy two girls are better than one 🤔

    @irene One actual option in mind is better than two in fantasies. :p Lel, it's not even an option tbh. I can be quite an impressive, funny guy until I meet a girl I admire. Then, I'm the dumbest guy on the planet. I really have find German girls fascinating and finally found this one girl who is super cool but I'm struggling to keep it together. I'd rather try to focus on this one person than go wild hunting. xD

    @exceptionalGuy I could not possibly remember that as I don't memorise every comment I interact with. (Just look at my comment count 😱)

    Well, if you are not as hopeless as me, you'll have another nice one eventually.

    @irene I am the "exceptional" guy! There's nothing wrong in me expecting you to remember that. :p

    Lel, I don't if it's a matter of hope but sure.
  • 0
    @exceptionalGuy what I mean by hopeless is I'm in a state of having almost no physical attraction to people so there's little to no motive to approach something or change the current state.
  • 0
    @irene I don't have any sort of physical attraction towards anyone either. But don't you feel like you want someone to hangout with? Someone you can be yourself with?
  • 0
    @exceptionalGuy I'm not sure I can be myself even by myself. There's no myself.
  • 0
    @irene There's no yourself? Interesting, tell me more. :D
  • 0
    @exceptionalGuy just some buddhism-like feelings: there's no self without outside actions and some physiological reactions.

    @irene sounds like existential crisis but it doesn't seem like a crisis. Are you trying to reach a mental state or something?
  • 1
    @exceptionalGuy I was trying to reach before. Now I'm stuck in it basically. Depression, anhedonia, almost constant boredom and inability to properly concentrate on majority of tasks.

    @irene What have you tried to get out of it? Just curious.
