    if you're too motivated to make your first million but you need a break i usually find a nice long documentary or youtube vid that goes over some interesting IM topics or storys, then just sit back and zone out

    Wow funny. Having one of those days and feeling like I'm the shit end of toilet paper. Feels like I've done nothing right. Did something wrong for one client, my big corporate customer basically said "no dice" on something I wrote, found out my lawyer can't help me on another issue, and have a client who fucked up his development and wants me to take over and fix it.... I just want to avoid but I'm already knee deep in shit from a bait and switch.

    Fun days fun days.

    Ima get drunk tonight and watch Bachelor Pad and watch all the girly boys and high maintenance whores cry on camera because so-and-so didn't give them a rose.

    I feel like "wow, nothing works anymore." I know it's not true of course, just brain fry.

    I'm in IM quite a bit now. Tried LOADS of methods, earned few dollars here and there, but never had proper success.
    But I never said to myself: that's it, I give up. Never. Cause I know for sure, my success only delayed. Keep trying!

    More of a metaphorical "I quit"... I make to much money working in my pajamas to actually quit. Thanks for the motivation vibes though.
