June 15, 1993
So, I started the doomfile with this kind of stuff:
But I know what to do about DESPERATE
it. Make some more money,
buy a new car, get some
more clothes, get a more
expensive hair cut, move to
a bigger place... All to
impress women I think are
fools for being impressed.
A few years and two or three girlfriends
later, I seem to be in a steady relationship
with someone, and despite my usual pessimism
there doesn't seem to be any problems with it.
How did I succeed? A friend of mine points
out I did almost the exact opposite of
strategy above: I quit working for over a
year to the point where I'm flat broke, I'm
still driving the same wreck of a car which
is deteriorating nicely, thank you, and I
gave up on haircuts and let my hair grow out.
I've almost achieved Pony Tail.
