Hi, I drank a six pack of Smithwick's earlier today. It took several hours and I barely buzzed off of it. The only reason why I did it was because I'm a fan of ales (especially the pale version British sailors drank during their voyages to the jewel of the empire
). Smithwick's is an Irish ale, and I've never had one of those. I should've known I would've hated it because it's by the same people who make Guinness. But it's a completely different beer (a stout), which doesn't necessarily mean they can't make better beers of different types. (I.e., ALES!)
I was wrong. Smithwick's sucks, and I wish I could think of some metaphor involving urine and my desire to drink that instead of Smithwick's...but you're not my girlfriend (yet) and I'm not gonna lie my ass off to you. Smithwick's sucks and I'll never buy it again. If you care about ales, you'll never buy it, either. Spend an extra dollar or two on something with a lot more flavor and a little more alcohol content. Or go balls out for both and way more alcohol content. Fuckin' a, man!
I have a note on stouts that I left unfinished. I fucking hate stouts. I liked them at first because they put hair on my chest. Well, they put hair on my inexperienced, angst ridden chest (which remains mostly bare to this day). But where's the flavor? Where's the bite? Where's the buzz? Oh, you'll look cool sipping a Guinness, but only if you're an idiot surrounded by other idiots.
Anyway, I'm having a bad day. And I am a moron. Here is why I feel this way.
In my defense, these fuckers had an ad on UCLA's job board. This is a job board that is only open to rising graduates and graduates willing to pay a fee. With that comes credibility in my mind. Perhaps I will learn my lesson. But only to an extent. Bruinview is the best fucking job board on the internet, and I'm speaking from experience. I've had probably 20+ interviews since I started my senior year, and about four at most have come from outside of that network.
No, I'm not going to give up on Bruinview, because that's probably the only way I'm ever going to get a job. Rather, if necessary, I'm going to write a detailed letter to them about this company and hope that they never do business with my alma mater or fuck over another Bruin again. We work too hard for this. Oh, and the Better Business Bureau.
I'm just furious about what I'm going through right now. I'm afraid that this is some two bit operation (more on that later if necessary) with little regard for my welfare. Good LORD I have so much to say about this if necessary.
I forgot why I even posted. Here's the best view I can get from Google Street View that accurately resembles that of the home my brother and I hope to inherit. I was born and raised here.
Oh, also. I got these awesome headphones the other day. I didn't really appreciate them until I listened to this album. I was promised a level of clarity I'd never heard if I bought these. I've been listening to trance (more on that later) since I got them, but then I turned on this today and I understood EVERYTHING this singer said while kind of drunk. I've never had a pair of headphones like that.
