    I wish I owned a bucket factory in Pattaya industrial estates

    Or had a saleryman job at a door mesh factory in CM. CM is land locked though. I've never understood it's appeal.

    I doubt you'd be qualified for either.

    'Whiny beta-bitch' just isn't an impressive CV filler.

Just hand over your passport to the agent with some photos and wait for the agent to visit my rented house to return my passport with a new stamp

    My online teaching works fine. I teach 'direct', and if I don't get on with a student or if the mum is just using me as a babysitter for her youngster, then I cancel/block their lesson bookings.

    I've got my bicycle, my off-road bike and my legs (I use the latter mostly for a daily 5-7 Km walk). Touch wood, but my health and fitness is excellent for my age.

    I don't bother cooking because my own cooking tastes crap and it's cheap to eat out every day ==> French bread and Lao coffee for brekkies in town by the Mekong, freshly-prepared salad for lunch.

    Maybe one reason why life is not a slog is because I ditched all greedy partners yonks ago. I only do what I want to do nowadays, not what someone else thinks I should do
    You have a fair bit of dramatics with the ladies if I recall. You even made a thread that you thought ladyboys might be a good option because they aren't the usual woman. But the forum talked you out of it

    Hence the reason for my final para "Maybe one reason why life is not a slog is because I ditched all greedy partners yonks ago. I only do what I want to do nowadays, not what someone else thinks I should do ". Those events were a bitch, but thankfully now many years ago.

    As for the LB option, I passed on that one and bought a female sex-doll instead
    Groping women when you're old is fine - everyone thinks you're senile

    It's been a hard slog for me particularly over the last 3 years with this new patent application of mine.

    Almost daily I receive examiners reports questioning certain patent claims from people who have never had anything to do with packaging containers.

    Very frustrating and time consuming but yesterday I finally received confirmation from Japan saying they have awarded me a full patent for that country.

    I expect I can now use this document to receive confirmation in other countries as Japan is particularly difficult when it comes to approving patents.

    I am extremely pleased with this outcome.

    I can convince myself that it isn't that bad and I have some ways out. There. Yay. I feel better. Except convincing myself of this isn't followed up by physical energy. I have to drown myself in coffee , kratom and tobacco to have enough energy to get through the day.

    I don't have the energy to brush my teeth every day. Happens every 3rd. Hard to muster the energy to wash my feet in the shower. That requires bending over. So I just let the water hit them a bit and call it good

    Oh, you're still sharing . . .




    I can only suggest that you speak to a psychologist.
