I am really sorry you are going through all of this. I wish you nothing but success and good luck. I really wish there was something I could say to make you feel better.

9 Months sure does blow right, but you are not alone. We are sad witnesses to something that a few years down the line may be real interesting to study, but living it makes ya want to put a bullet in the head. Just keep your head up, keep the faith and keep lookin for dem better days.
I know the crying game, do it every day. You know your down when the sunshine dont make you smile, when you just cant seem to find what it is that allowed you to wake up just yesterday. But as things go down they will come back up, we will reach a rich period in this world again, the key is to learn from this stuff, it was like this in the 80's, it will be like this again.
9 months is harsh, my dad aint had a job in 2 years, MOFO cant even seem to get hired at McD's.
Hey with a body like yours theres always strippin right :wink:


Haha! This made me crack a smile! I can't strip, yo. I have no bewbies. I am also a VERY TERRIBLE dancer. Nobody should be subjected to that. Would you watch someone strip while doing the Carlton? Lol

All you guys made me feel better with your kind words.
Being a vegan, I just figured that working in a fast food restaurant would be difficult for me. It was hard when I wasn't a vegan.. because I was selling this toxic food to people who should be eating healthy food instead! I've applied at a couple fast food restaurants that don't seem too bad.. I know many elitist vegans would look down on that but I don't care. I applied at Quizno's and Panago Pizza. Never heard a thing either. Next I'll apply at Tim Horton's (for those who aren't Canadian, it's a huge coffee and doughnut chain).. Mcdonald's will be a last resort. I worked there when I was 19. It was fun until I got the manager from hell!

I totally admit that working there as a vegan was hard as hell. I really hope you can find a job soon though. :) You can do it! And we all know how awesome you are! These job places just need to realize that too.

I know fast food really isn't that great, but one summer when I had trouble finding a job I worked at Subway. The job wasn't THAT bad, but the manager was a total jerk. Don't get me wrong, it's certainly not an ideal job, but for me it was better than nothing.

What about waitressing at a non-fast food place?

What? In BC you need a course to waitress? I guess that makes sense, in Sask. and MB they'll just let any yahoo work in the food industry.

I think it's stupid. I already have foodsafe. Shit, I took aseptic technique in college. I'm pretty sure I can figure out how to bring food out to people.

sooo I got a job :D
It's real easy too haha! I work in a call center so I yap on the phone all day. It rocks. I have enough energy to go to the gym when I come home. Only getting a couple shifts a week though.. Gonna have to bug em to schedule me more! I really need the money.

I also started a new workout routine, the K.I.S.S routine. All compounds, weight lifting 3 days a week. It's good for building muscles. This is the workout I'm following:

Seated Row - 6-10 Reps
Pullup - 6-10 Reps
Barbell Pullover - 6-10 Reps
Close-grip Bench Press - 6-10 Reps
One-arm Cable Pushdown - 6-10 Reps
Barbell Curl - 6-10 Reps
Dumbell Hammer Curl - 6-10 Reps

Workout #2

EXERCISE
Barbell Squat - 6-10 Reps
Dumbell Lunge - 6-10 Reps
Leg Extension - 6-10 Reps
Barbell Deadift - 6-10 Reps
Leg Curl - 6-10 Reps
Ab Crunch - 15-25 Reps
Oblique Crunch - 15-25 Reps

Workout #3

EXERCISE
Dumbell Bench Press - 6-10 Reps
Incline Hammer Press - 6-10 Reps
Bar Dips - 6-10 Reps
Dumbell Shoulder Press - 6-10 Reps
Upright Barbell Row - 6-10 Reps
Standing Calve Raise - 8-12 Reps
Seated Tibilais Raise - 8-12 Reps

Yesterday I did workout 1, and tomorrow I'll do workout 2, then workout 3 etc. etc. With a day of rest in between. It's pretty awesome. I hope it works!
I started drinking coffee again.. Lol. It's a habit I picked up in Powell River cuz I was getting minimal sleep and was very busy all day. I had the best trip. The air is so fresh and I could run forever! I did lots of exercise. Running, dancing, and weight lifting in the 3 days I was there. I'm uploading pics on Facebook now.
I'm also trying to eat more protein. So far, a lot of it comes from grains like oats and stuff so as you can imagine, I'm going to the bathroom a lot. Oh well. I got this awesome muesli with maple flavour. Mmmm!! Tres Canadien!

Say hello to my little friend.

Can't wait to see how this new routine works for you.
