I have this automation programming training 10-6 this week plus trying to close out my month strong and actually make some decent commission for the first time in a while... so not much time for anything outside of work :disappoint:

The training is surprisingly interesting/engaging for being remote :doe: at least.
Interesting/engaging work training? :mindblown:

Thanks! It was weighing on me, and I had two kids latched to my neck for a week.

Actually something American, Bulleit Frontier Whiskey. I can handle it with a couple of ice cubes.

Nice stuff! I'm a particular fan of Bullet rye.
At Costco pricing, BR is squarely in daily driver territory.

Totally. I almost always have a Costco bottle of BR on hand. That and Makers.

Our store recently started carrying "Kirkland Tennessee Whiskey", 1.75L for $35. It's a fantastic Jack rip-off that works great mixed with whatever soda (Zevia ginger root beer is my thing these days). Not terrible by itself either.

We're further north than a lot of people in Canada (Toronto at least)...this winter has been crazy mild.

27 here when I woke up. About 30 now.

Got about 4" of snow so far and it's still coming down at a decent clip. Snow-blew my driveway before leaving for work this morning and will most likely have to do it again when I get home.

We don't even have 2" on the ground right now. Got a bit of lake effect this morning, but nothing more than a dusting.

It’s crazy how much therapy actually costs at market value. It’s also crazy that government doesn’t do more to subsidize it like other issues. I think giving people affordable mental healthcare would do wonders in preventing homelessness, etc.
The way mental health is treated in this country is an embarrassment. There are so many benefits from mental health treatment that bleed into physical health, it's crazy. Drug abuse, obesity, and as you mentioned social issues like homelessness could probably all be drastically reduced with better mental health care.

And it's awesome to hear you figured out a way to get your wife in. It's worked wonders for us so far, we probably need to find someone to talk to again soon. Mental health is something you need to maintain, just like physical health.
Ignoring the mental health needs of the masses just keeps the poors where they want them. Beneath them.

Can't be giving anyone any free bootstraps these days, buckaroo.

Not wrong either tho. You want therapy?
Insurance won’t cover it. Even the best plans.

Therapy/Counseling? $150/hr

Psychiatrist? $300/hr

We went to marriage counseling and it was covered by wife's insurance... mine covers no such things (or really anything, it is literally just pumping money into the machine with zero return).

It's nothing HR related and rather learning how to program automation systems. It isn't hard but at least mentally stimulating compared to doing the same fucking thing every other day.

I'll take it.

I had garbage insurance when I saw my therapist for 2 years, it claimed to cover nothing, but they had this suicide prevention line you could call if things were dire. I was in a really bad place (not suicidal :doe: ), and just making the initial appointment was tough. Once I got there, I told her at the end that I really wanted to work with her, but that I don't make much so instead of her 2x/week suggestion, maybe just once per month. She said she thought it was important and assured me her office would work with me.

Sure enough, they managed to do something with my insurance to get a bit covered, and I just had to pay $50/visit (which was 45 minutes). I saw her 2x/week for the first month, then 1x/week after. It was without a doubt the best money I've ever spent.

Zill, you still doing car dealer work? Or anyone here I guess in general.

I leased my Subaru and lease is up...so I messed up or what not, and maybe enjoyed the car a tad bit more than we had agreed on; mileage wise. (36k miles, car currently has 59.7k LOL)

So the dealer called me and said I could go to the dealership to buy out the car there and they would handle also registration and stuff. However I was also told I could also just do it through my bank (Chase) which handles the lease RN.

Any benefits with going through the dealer? Or should I go through the bank? Also is there any negotiation factors I could possibly do here? Thnx
