That's good to hear. I hope I can find a friendly place like that once I start looking for a real job. My coworkers now are great though. They're all around my age and we all play XBOX together.
My girlfriend does something similar. I very rarely buy myself earrings because I can never find a pair that I feel are "manly" if that makes any sense. When I finally do find a pair I'm comfortable with my girlfriend always borrows them. Forever.
You are quite lucky then. To have a place like that must be nice. It's nearly impossible to afford a place on minimum wage here in Hollywood. Rent is 1,000 and up. Minimum wage wouldn't even cover that if you lived alone. :T
I should make my girlfriend something on Photoshop when I finally get a useable computer. Running PS on a NetBook wouldn't really be ideal. I really miss making signatures on PS. It was one of my distractions back when I had troubles at home. You and your boyfriend seem awesome though. I think its adorable that you guys make each other gifts like that. I need to start being more creative too!
Yeah, our PM really is something else, especially considering he's been stressed out himself with everything that's been going on lately. I guess I've found quite a great place to work, even if it isn't a big company, the people there are really nice and understanding.
Hehe, I always tell my boyfriend that I'll buy him earrings for him, and if he doesn't like them, he can give them to me instead
And I don't know, considering the minimum wage in my country is actually less than my rent, it's not that cheap. I'll admit we were lucky though, because our place really looks great and we have everything we need, the only downside is that the closest metro station is 15 minutes away.
Hehe, glad you liked it. And go for it, I'm sure she'd be really surprised. It doesn't need to be on the computer anyway, my boyfriend once made me a pop up card, it had a cat and mouse pop up on each side, and they were holding a string that had "happy birthday" hung on it, with each individual letter cut out. It was so cuuuute ♥
That's great news!!! I'm glad it all worked out for you. Hopefully you get a well deserved break after all your hardwork. It's nice to see your PM was understanding. More often than not they tend to have you do the work regardless. ;_;
I have to admit I loved this necklace the moment I saw it! I almost bought it for myself instead. Hehe. :3 She however has a nice pair of pearl earrings that suit the necklace wonderfully though, so I figured I'd let her have it instead. Your rent is remarkably cheap by the way. Mine is nearly 1,000 dollars. x.o
That is the most adorable thing I have ever seen!!!! Oh my gosh I'm so envious! I wish I could do things like that for my girlfriend. I'm sure she would absolutely love it! Perhaps I'll take a crack at learning how. Who knows, I may end up loving computer work. :3
Also, is Mooncat you? :o
My girlfriend painted the nails on one of my hands while I was asleep. She claimed she was "bored". I curse my deep sleep. Fortunately I always sleep on one of my hands or I may have had both painted. Hehe. She made me go out with them to buy the remover since we were at my place. I was surprised that people complimented them. I figured I'd get awkward stares instead. I took a picture if you want to see.
So I somehow managed to convince our PM that there's not much we can do right now, since we're all very tired and we'll end scrapping the code we write now afterwards anyway. It worked, plus there won't be much time to show off our app to each person who visits our stand at the exhibition, so we focused on the UI and settled on a (much shorter) presentation on the features that work well. So yay, weekend!
Oh, that necklace is really pretty! And expensive, I can pay our rent for two months with that money, hehe. The 20's style is really feminine and delicate, with the pretty pearly jewelry, and cute hats and handbags, and Mary Jane shoes. I haven't read the Great Gatsby yet, though I got it as a gift from my roommate a couple of years ago.
Okay then, my turn. For our 4th anniversary last year, I made him this: http://subeta.net/petinfo.php?petid=908710. It's a petpage on a petsite I used to play a lot back in the day, not so much right now. I coded it and wrote the text, the five icons at the top are actually buttons to change the text, and the keepsakes thing at the bottom opens a treasure chest when you hover over it. I tried to make it interactive. Anyway, I'm not usually that cheesy, but I though it was cute doing something like that for a change.
Huh, I thought I hit the "post" button the other day
Anyway, what I wanted to say then makes no sense now; apparently everything I've been working on will not be used for the presentation today and tomorrow, because it's not finished yet and won't be in time. So I'll be working together with my colleague on something that she wasn't able to finish either, hoping that it'll go better and actually have that ready. Really frustrating, I can't wait for the week-end, since I've kinda lost hope that I'll be able to return to our normal schedule before then.
And happy anniversary to you too, hope you had fun! And yes, show me, I'll show you what I made for my boyfriend last year later
I'm sorry, I just figured I would be since you hadn't replied. I have a bad habit of doing something similar when people text me though. I think I sent a reply but it was all in my head. I've never had something like that happen to me though. Hehe.
Aw Miau. You can do this! You're almost there so give it all you've got. Soon you'll be able to relax a bit more and perhaps tell me stories about how it all went! I'd really like to hear all about it.
Oh my gosh! I didn't even think about her animation. I haven't seen her animation since who knows what version. I've taken a liking to Grass types too. It's a shame it isn't a viable way to build a team though. Lilligant and Bellosom are definitely my top favorite Grass types though. I can't imagine my team without at least one of them. :3
Also! Today is my two year anniversary with my girlfriend! Can I show you the necklace I got her?
I hope you're doing well Miau. I'm sorry if this seems a bit rushed but I'm at work. I miss you! Hope you're doing well. <3
You're never a bother! I sometimes do that, if I can't reply when I see a message, I may not reply at all. Or reply in my head and think that the other person magically receives my thoughts. I do that a lot while texting, I remember once I forgot to reply to my friend who wanted to meet me, I thought sure, I'll be there. I waited half an hour before calling her and she says "you never replied, I thought you wouldn't come"
Anyway, it's 10 PM on Sunday night, and I just finished working today. My colleagues will be flying to the US tomorrow, so I'll be on my own, trying to tie any lose ends, so I think tomorrow and the day after tomorrow will be hell. I'm so sick and tired of working 10 hours a day, so I just can't wait for things to go back to normal. I won't be able to get a vacation until the the middle of August, though
Yes, and her hula dancing animation is so adorable, she even does a little jump! I'm starting to really love Grass types, with their pretty flowers, like Bellossom and Lilligant and Maractus and Roselia.
I've been doing well! Just working hard and training my Pokémon. I'm sorry I haven't sent you anything in a while You just stopped replying so I figured you were really busy (Seems like I guessed right.). I didn't want to be a bother.
I'm really happy to hear from you though! It's nice to know you're doing well. :D You can do this Miau! You're in the final stretch!
How awesome!!! Bellosom is one of my favorite Pokémon! She is just far too cute for words.
I hope all is well! Tell me more about everything! I've missed our conversations.
