Search - "birthday tomorrow"
2AM and a birthday party of my BELOVED mother that I have to attend tomorrow in the middle of bumfuck. And I'm not sleeping, oh no.. because "family obligations" require me to get her a present on 2 days notice. I'm making her something very simple, some LED's displaying her new age, powered by a lithium cell and some charge-boost-protection controller. So I need to make a mesh to place the LED's to make those characters.
Measuring the size of the project box, cut it out.. started drawing the numbers on it. Not satisfied and ain't nobody got time for that. Guess I'll just print something out. Drew a little image with some text on my tablet, sent it to the printer. Black apparently doesn't want to print anymore even though it's still fucking full.
HP YOU CERTIFIED MOTHERFUCKERS!!! How fucking difficult can it be to make a printer and make it into something that doesn't shit on me every fucking time I want to use it?! Why do I have to deal with your shit, on top of my mother's?! WHY?!!!!
Fuck me. Happy birthday to my mother, and silently I wish that it's her last one. The bitch wouldn't - no she didn't - piss on me even when I was on fire!! Where were you "dear family member" when I was homeless, huh?! WHERE WERE YOU, WHEN I STOOD ON TOP OF A BRIDGE, READY TO END MY LIFE AND BEGGED TO YOU TO ALLOW ME TO STAY IN YOUR HOME FOR THE NIGHT?! Mother my fucking ass. A blood bond that I wish I never had! And that I have to work for now, because you fucking bitch can't even possibly think as far into the future as to invite your peers for a birthday party.. I dunno, maybe a week in advance, like a sensible human being would? At least she's improving, my little sister's and brother's birthdays she just invited me for the day before. And I also had to get a present ready for, in the middle of the fucking night. Fucking hell!!!13
Tomorrow is my 19th birthday and I'm very excited about it. 😀🎂

"Upgrade our biggest project from Angular 5 to Angular 6", they said.
"Just a few tweaks and everything will be fine", they said.
And now here I am, stuck in the office trying to fix basically everything. And tomorrow is my birthday.4
I like how the word "busy" is a multi-tool word for me to convey disinterest, anger, sickness, family affairs, and exhaustion--while disclosing nothing going on about your life or your opinions at all. Everyone just doesn't bother you when you say you've been busy. And then I'm happy that they don't pry.
"Jenny, can you take a call from me right now?"
"Oh hi Art! I'm sorry I couldn't take your call. I have been busy all day."
Translation: "Hello Art, I just slept all day and I needed it so please don't be offended that I deliberately ignored your call."
"Hey Jenny, let's meet at the doughnut shop then I can drive you to this cool chapel."
"Sorry Gerard, I'll be busy."
Translation: "My sister has a birthday party today. Sorry bro."
"Good morning Jenny, can you help me with this programming problem?"
"Sorry Zhang, cannot help you with that. I'm busy."
Translation: "I hate PHP, please don't bother me with that."
"Hey Jenny can you take a moment looking at this ticket in the backlog?"
"I'm still busy with the edit profile module, Robert."
Translation: "Dude fuck off for a while I still need to finish this module. Alright?"
"Hi Jenny, how are you?"
"I'm fine. Just busy."
Translation: "I'm pissed at you right now Aldrin. Please go away for at least three days. But I still consider you a friend, so I'll tell you that I'm busy instead."
"Jenny, are you still going to Mass in our church?"
"Sorry, Nicole, I'm really busy nowadays."
Translation: "I don't wanna go to church, but I am not sure you'll understand why. I'll come back when I want to. Don't wait for me."
"Jenny I miss you."
"Sorry Jared, I'm busy."
Translation: "Also piss off. But I love you so I don't want to tell you off like that."
"Jenny, can you give me a quote for this blockchain experience we want to integrate with our app?"
"Tomorrow, Willie, I am busy."
Translation: "I'll do it tomorrow since my headache is killing me. But you don't need to know that."
"Hey Jenny I have this really cool project. Interested?"
"Sorry, I am busy with my current ones."
Translation: "Lol no way I'll develop that thing. Your product sucks."
So it’s my girlfriend’s birthday and I was sitting with wine in my hand and C sharp.
I’m gonna be dead tomorrow.5
I have a 24 hours hackathon tomorrow (25 hours actually because of the time change).
I want to learn and create an app and I opted for xamarin as a development platform. Problem was: I didn't have enough space in my windows partition (it's a ~40Gb partition in a 128Gb ssd) so, as I am not using Ubuntu that much I simply deleted its partitions from Windows and installed visual studio with xamarin. I played a bit with it, everything was working fine, I switched it off and I was feeling great for my wonderful problem solving abilities and I was ready to go to bed to have a nice 10 hours sleep before the big event. I was about to sleep when I realised it was my cousin's birthday and I hadn't said "happy birthday" so I switch my computer back on and there I realised how much I had fucked up.
The grub wasn't working anymore and I couldn't boot.
I've just spent the last 3 or 4 hours trying to figure out how to make my computer boot normally using my housemates' laptops to create bootable USBs for Windows and Ubuntu
Thanks to some random commands in the trial version of Ubuntu I managed to disinstall the grub and make windows start but thanks to my experimentations while trying to fix the problem I am now waiting for visual studio + xamarin (~35Gb) to download and install again.
Tomorrow's gonna be great7
Start my days at 6am local to be able to have an entire days’ worth of access to my team because they’re all East Coast and I’m Pacific. And then work until it’s 5pm local regularly because I lose track of time. And then I can’t just turn it off at night, so then I’m restless thinking about the things I could be doing to make the project better.
How the hell do the rest of you stop thinking about work after work?10
Tomorrow I'll start high school.
Tomorow is my birthday.
Tomorrow I'll have my first high school math test.
Wish me luck!6
When it's weekend and you can spend more time on your personal projects but then you realize that an annoying family member is celebrating his birthday tomorrow
when the release date is may 31 and the client thought it's a good idea to request a bunch of new features and changes in friday afternoon :)
Tomorrow is gonna be a fun birthday...
what a nice day to have birthday on the first day of #wk100 :)
... and having a deadline till tomorrow 12am and there's still stuff open. o boi
I spend fucking 6 hours of the birthday party of my girlfriends father fixing his M.2 SSD involving:
* driving through half of the city because the store nearby had closed half an hour ago... (and spending 30% more)
* cloning the drive back and forth (including several session of browsing to find the solutions to several errors)
* trying to repair bootloader (without success)
... Just to reinstall the old one because it wouldn't boot from the new one.
And tomorrow I'm going to a business trip and I all I wanted was to prepare some side projects for the 4 hour long ride.
Fuck you M.2 and mother fucking windows 7 for being such shitheads.5
They had a meeting without me for a production release that was happening tomorrow. Rescheduled the release on my wife's birthday without asking anyone. This was the response when I let this known "Happy Birthday honey, you get a night without me."1
