As of today.

Plans include a trip to New York later this month, and shooting for a reasonably "intellectual" part time job in the fall.

The young people call it being a NEET.

That's the more modern with it totally not Squaresville way to express that thought. :P

Or at least I think they are young. Perhaps people lie about their age over by 4chan. :cowbell:

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.
