so this is the modern world
where our lives are ruled by the desperate need to garner likes and upvotes?
ffs mo1xxxxxx, get some perspective. no likes / downvotes are meaningless irl.
i mean, who fucking cares?
- I am sensitive. I need love. Stop hating me.M01XXX
- i got a song for you.
- not true, upvotes brought good fortune to Continuityimbecile
- I care...I tried to join in the meme thing and my contribution got 4 downvotes. I was sad for like 9 seconds.see_thru

What a difference 24 hours makes.
Just when you think it's all irreparably falling apart, awesomeness comes out of nowhere. Since yesterday afternoon's chat with my landlady:
• A headhunter I connected with put my CV forward to one of the big network agencies, who are looking for a CD and she feels I'll get an interview with them;
• I just had a phone interview with a small agency in Stuttgart who are also looking for a CD, and they want to meet me next Friday;
• An HR person from one of the large German content marketing agencies found me on LinkedIn, and sent me a message asking if I would like to be considered for a CD job they have in Munich, and wants to schedule a call.
Now, it's up to me to keep this momentum going, and to bring it to fruition.
Needless to say, I'm incredibly grateful for this fantastic turn of events, and to all of you for putting up with me this week.

I'll just take a fucking running nose-dive off a cliff if I make it to that age and have no money
- I'm thinking suicide is the only way out as well... at least the 90's was fun!mugwart

Been playing the new God of War since it came out about 2.5 hours ago. Reminds me a bit of a refined version of Hellblade and Dark Souls. Smashing chests is kinda lame, but its a game. Whatevs. Wow though. Super impressed. Lives up to the hype so far. Spent about 10 minutes practicing parrying and got some nice loot to help playing at a higher difficulty.
The one continual camera angle in quite interesting and the art direction is legit. Hopefully the puzzles aren't too lame...
- If I've never heard of God of War let alone played it before, is it something you could jump into?dee-dubs
- ^ yep totally. The old games were great but this is a different beast. And it’s brilliant.MrT
- never played any of the previous, finally got a ps4 and this game seems like a good intro to the franchisejaylarson
- Invest in Platinum's games instead - they offer far better gameplay and combat.face_melter

FUCK YOU INSTAGRAM!
I logged into our Instagram account, only to discover that we are magically following thousands of people we never followed. I then spent an hour "unfollowing" these people...only to have them reappear as "followed" on our account 5 minutes later.
I'm now done with Instagram...and fuck you Facebook!
qbn is starting to become some morbid experiment of watching a group of designers / ex-designers grow old and die together online.
case in point: "Retirement Talk", the new hottest thread.
- and why not?hans_glib
- signs of getting oldsted
- not a good or bad thing. also I remember the qbn creators used to state things like this all is some not for profit experiment.inteliboy
- It's funny you say that, because the stuff we're talking about at work is directed towards younger people.mg33
- AKA "what do you need to know and do in your 20's when you're starting your career so you don't get halfway to retirement and think "oh shit..."mg33
- I feel like I retired once already.docpoz
- very soon 'designer gravestones" threadBeeswax
- "assisted living advice"yuekit
- Perhaps a result of us all diving into a design career when it was fun and the internet was a blue sky of opportunity.shapesalad
- now it's matured, industry is super relevant to youth, full of youths, cheap labour.shapesalad
- It went passed mature to oversaturated.docpoz

- she's quite something.Gnash
- I was a little disappointed that she went for pitt, though. on the other hand, at least she has a flawGnash

My retirement plans are pinned on my 2 children becoming seriously rich football players and looking after poor ol mum and dad....
Unfortunately as they are both girls i suspect their earning potentials are somewhat reduced compared to male counterparts.
...plus they are shit at football
oh well, add me to the fucked when older list
My sleazy old boss that inspired me to quit that job has also compelled the next 4 people he's hired also to quit within about a year and a half. Once they had a total staff of 6, and it's now down to just him and one woman who's been there forever and doesn't know how to use email.
Cheers, boss! Ya cunt.
- hahaha. no email? does she have carrier pigeons to relay info?capn_ron
- why send an email when you can just leave a long voicemail??sarahfailin
- Marathon voicemails, my favorite. I've had, "If you'd like to reach me right away email ____ or text" as a caveat that I won't listen for at least 10 years.shellie
