Hopefully he's not feeling ashamed. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas Jack.

He's off molesting that poor cat, a twisted compensation for not making a move on the other single during couple's week. Like that Yorgos movie

Life seems very futile to me now. But also strenuous and stressful. A boring prison. It's the post holiday blues, ofc, but also simply entering back into precisely the same situation that was depressing me before.

The only thing that really matters to me when I'm alone is art, music, literature etc. These things are all so far from my day job that my day job (quite apart from the stress of it) repulses me.

Why don't you come and meet me. I'm really nice and a new love affair might be exactly what you need? I'm eating Chinese chips and curry sauce. I've got some augustiner helles beer.

I often feel convinced that I should be an academic, since in many ways I'm just the type. But several people in or adjacent to academia recently told me it's a terrible profession to get into these days. And of course the arts industry is totally fucked with COVID.

I mean whether or not I'm academic in fact the daydream is me sitting in an ivory tower all day reading books and pontificating.

As you say I'd be be bored within minutes and sneaking off to wank and play call of duty.

There's one intellectual on dissensus and that is poetix. But he makes a 6 figure salary programming so he's not invested in it so he can just be a lad with us,

Xenogoth is an aspiring intellectual and will probably make it which is why he doesn't participate in threads that don't directly concern him

I've got to admit when @suspendedreason told us about about learning programming recently I thought maybe that IS the way to go.
Chances are I'd fucking hate programming though, but at least I'd be making serious wonga.

You wouldn't make serious wonga cos the point is you have to be good at it. You would be awful at it.

Coding is like somewhere between writing an essay, troubleshooting a broken printer, and solving a word problem (like standardized maths test, not too hard). It's not the most fun thing, but if you're OK with problem-solving it's not a bad gig at all. You're doing things with your mind, you're building things, you're working on a team, there's a finished product to show for it. Less alienating than most jobs in that sense

He can't. There's no one on earth except me less suited to it, what he needs is to come round the flat for a lager.
