I'm...surprised guiness cares about that. I know my record of stunt race fx radio control track #1 9 seconds is still the reigning record haha.

I got a new job and finished a week of working there. So far I love it. My commissions / projects have been put on hold just so I can get used to the job but now that it's my weekend I'll have some time to get stuff done.

Actually I didn't need the job I was doing fine economically. Me and my girlfriend are great at saving money and supporting each other so even with no job living off of employment insurance I was still making money. This job is pretty sweet it's super relaxed and the pay is pretty good considering how little work I have to do. I was doing perfectly fine living off of employment insurance and commission money but my girlfriend bugged me to send out some resumes and my experience fit perfectly for this job. The employer hounded me every way humanly possible (e-mail, left messages in the cel phone), I even ignored the messages for half a day while working on commissions laughing . The employer was basically on a crazy mission to get me to come in for an interview, the interview lasted for maybe 20 minutes and turned into me coming in the following week to try it out. The rest is now history I've already been labelled as a "quick learner" and "did really good work this week" with a genuine smile on his face thumbs up

When I first started dating my girlfriend she got laid off because of the economy turning into poo. Luckily she got on employment insurance, this's how we knew how to get me onto employment insurance when I got laid off. Also I told my girlfriend how to swindle my landlord at the time into letting her live in my room for 250$ a month. By a strange twist of fate my girlfriend is from the same country that my landlord at the time is from. Me and my girlfriend didn't tell the landlord that we were dating, so the landlord thought that if they were nice to my girlfriend and let her share my room with me for a while then maybe she would date their loser son who never left the house. Also my japanese friend was renting the other room so once he moved out the idea was that my girlfriend would take my friend's room. For around 6 months the rent me and my girlfriend paid was divided in half of what other people pay just because the two of us were crammed inside of one room. Without me my girlfriend would have been really screwed and wouldn't have had such a comfortable cushion to give her lots of time to find a new job. When my girlfriend lost her job it was the beginning of 2010 and the economy was doing terribly. She sent out resumes to every kind of job during those 6 months and never got a reply. The whole reason why my girlfriend found another job was because of yet another suggestion of mine to use her connections since she had a lot of friends who already had jobs in her field. For 6 months I saved my girlfriend from losing a lot of money (she actually made money due to cheap rent), gave her a huge cushion to use to relax and recover from being overworked, and pointed her in the right direction for her to find a new job. Oh yeah also my girlfriend's old landlord kicked my girlfriend out around the time she lost her job so I also gave my girlfriend a place to live. My landlords at the time were probably giving me sweet treatment because I kept finding friends to rent out the other room.

I finally stopped drinking sodas. I was averaging 150 - 200 oz. of soda a day. That's a lot of calories and very bad for you, so bad that I even had an organ stop working on me once before because I was so dehydrated. Also about 60 dollars a week on sodas alone. However, it's not just the no sodas that I am excited about, I'm more excited that I have been drinking ONLY water for 10 days now! I have already lost some weight and feel much better all around. I know 10 days doesn't seem like much, but when you drink as much sodas as I did, it's can be a very proud moment. Smile

Awesome! I hope to get to that point myself. So far the first few days have been the hardest, but after that it's been fairly easy to stick with.

Wait...seriously? Are you okay? Does your "organ" still work? 60$ a week on pop (sorry I'm torontonian we say pop not soda) holy crap dude, that's how much I spend on groceries for two people. You should try chai tea someday it's wicked. Those most pop I'll ever drink is 2 small plastic bottles a week if I'm super busy with work and need the energy. Normally I live on a steady diet of one good coffee a day plus berry punch juice from concentrate. The funny thing with me is I don't drink water unless I'm doing sports. If I play sports all I feel like is water, otherwise I can't stand the taste of water and I need juice.

Seriously though I wouldn't consider cutting out pop as a useless milestone that's pretty awesome and you really should keep it up. I find berry punch juice a good intermediate fix, it's not too bad for you but it's not as boring to drink as water.

Oh well I guess it's not so much useless as just healthy. lol. Yeah I'm fine, the organ thing happened a few years back. Yeah I have a bunch of money left over and it's really cool. Finally starting to save some back and I feel good. So yeah. I've never had Chai Tea before, what does it taste like?

I think chai tea when you add milk and sugar it tastes a little like coffee. I'm a coffee drinker so it's always great to find something that tastes like coffee but is better for me. I usually have one coffee in the morning and one chai tea in the evening. And yes I live a very healthy lifestyle and I'm in amazing shape. People often think I'm 20-22 years old but in reality I'm 32 haha. When I was single I used to have girls come up and start chatting with me and then the conversation would get kind of strange once they realized I was the same age (or older) as their teacher. Life is better all around when you're healthy you feel better and people like you more.

Yeah seriously there's so many things you can buy with the money you'd be saving.

Everyone tells me I look younger than I am too. Not that I'm old but I get mistaken for a teenager a lot. Oh and believe me I have been spending it on video games. lol. Just got Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown yesterday, Splatterhouse, and a few others. Shocking thing is, I will have money left over, and I don't make much money at all.
