I didn't know there was a word for it

Like Jason Toney and many others, I too have committed myspace-icide. His reasons are also my own:

"To me, the vast majority of people get at least 10% dumber when they get on myspace. They get obsessed with filling out silly surveys and constantly saying hi to each other and a whole bunch of other stuff that I'm already getting tired just thinking about. Maybe it's my old age of 31 but I just can't take it anymore."

Word.

Also, i missed my deadline by about 2 days but i did it. I sent off my financial information to the franchise that i'm interested in. I was sweating and worrying that they wouldn't accept me based on the sorry state of my dough. But two days later, the CEO called me back and wanted to keep the process going.

Wow. I can't even tell you how excited i was after that phone call. I let out a welp that i know other folks in my office heard but i don't care. I was on Cloud 9. I mean ok yeah i know it won't really be time to celebrate till i get the money to buy in but i gotta keep myself motivated. I need every small win to keep the self-doubt from creepin' in and fucking me up.

It's been a thing with me for a long time that i never finish anything i start. That i dream big and fall flat. And here i am again...embarking on something huge and life-changing and i really want to see it all the way thru this time...I have to.

Okay so the next step is I go to the home office of the company and meet the CEO and his staff. I will also get to review all of the financial information of the franchise and really be able to make an informed decision about whether it's something i can handle.
