Why Some Relationships, Rings, Proposals, Wedding & Marriages Are a Waste

Posted by mikenopolis on April 27, 2009

This PostSecret picture really made me think…


I’ve said many times that I would love to finally get married after being with my girlfriend for 12 years & 10 months. I don’t want us to be in our thirties saying the words “My girlfriend and I are…”. Over the past 4-5 years many of our friends and family have gotten married some had a child or two. I’m truly happy for MOST of them not because they ARE happy, but because some of them BELIEVE that they are happy. The main reason we’ve not tie the knot after all these years is because we wanted to financially build a foundation for our livelihoods before doing so. Money has been a big problem with me after my father passed away and left me to support my handicapped mother.

The reason I look down on some marriages is because some couples gets married and live in their friends/parents/grandparents homes. That’s even worst than renting an apartment in my view. I’m sure some of you will say that I’m “snooty” for thinking this way, but I blame this discrimination on the society we live in. I’ve seen people driving a beat up old Toyota Corolla with three baby seats (and plastic spinners on their wheels). I’ve had an employee ask me to get her a raise because her husband can’t (won’t) get a job. I’ve had friends that dropped out of college to get married and “start a family”.

I know all these examples are just that… bad examples, but I feel like I’m seeing more and more or these type of relationships. Obviously there are MANY happy couples out there who live the “perfect” life where there is sufficient income, family value and love. Their children would be well supported financially and emotionally. But as I look at the younger generation around me (while I’m in my very late 20’s) I’m starting to lose hope. They listen to junk they think is music, they watch reality TV shows that lack direction, whatever happened to shows that has a story, a show that taught young children lessons in life? These “kids” think visible body piercings and tattoos won’t ruin their job search and the only thing they know about a computer is how to go on social networks. I read over 400 resumes in the past two weeks trying to look for 2 new employees, interviewed about 20 of these people and maybe 3 of them will have a promising future in being human. The other 17 looked good one paper but definitely bent the truth just a little too much on the resume. The rest of the resumes are just a disgrace to the word resume.

I can rant on and on about this, but it’s starting to get too long.

Idiot in Accounting Class Named R.Ogata

Posted by mikenopolis on March 4, 2008

As you know, I’ve been taking an accounting class Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:00-9:00pm (PST). Attendance is worth a few point in the class so the professor passes around a sign-in sheet. It gets passed down from one person to the next, from one row to the next, then one section to the next…well there’s this IDIOT named R.Ogata! [PICTURE] who constantly screws it up, how hard is it to pass a paper in the right direction? He’s done this 3 times now. He sits in the middle section, when the sign-in sheet gets to him, he decides to pass it to the next section of the class and ignores half his section. Look at this picture, you get what I’m talking about!

Accounting Class

Posted by mikenopolis on February 14, 2008

I’ve been taking an accounting class at a local community college for fun because I hate driving through traffic to get from work in Irvine to home is LA. Last night I took the second test, it had 50 multiple choice questions and 6 written “workout” calculations, journalizing problems. Majority of the class took more than the FULL time (2 hrs.) to finish the test. We started about 6:45pm which is already 15 minutes extra since the class begins at 7:00pm, at 8:50 we were told that he would be nice enough to let us have an extra 15 minutes, so the actual time allowed went from 2 hours to 2 hours & 30 minutes!!!

The reason I’m ranting is that there were A LOT more question and things to work out in this test than the last one…I think this professor should take a class in time management, either make the test easier or shorter, or allow more time to begin with, not make the students freak out watching the time go by!!!!
