Many people may not get asked that very often, so I'm gonna ask y'all:

How are you doing today?

I had a good day.

EDIT: Part of the reason why I made this thread was because of this quote:

"Sometimes talking to a complete stranger, someone who doesn't know anything about you... is EXACTLY what you need!"

Thats great duder. Hope you have a nice day and thanks for asking!

However I am having a very bad day. Wife got angry at me for no reason for the 100th time.

@eder: Sorry to hear that Eder. If you, or anyone else, need someone to talk to I'm there for y'all.

(I'm trying to incorporate y'all in my daily vocab btw. I hardly ever get to use it.)

Do you sincerely wish to know how my day went and any potential personal problems that would come with that answer, or do you simply wish to occupy space with words?

Every day is a bad day for Video_Game_King...

My day was pretty good. I saw that movie Gravity and it was amazing.

I FEEL LIKE A PIECE OF HUMAN SHIT

I did okay. I took a longer nap than expected after work, but I'm cool.

I have to write a paper for class by Monday, so I need to stay away from GTA V for a couple of days.

Took the day off work because I don't feel good. Bloated, cramping, tired, headaches, hot flashes, light headed...

#10 Posted by 49th (2667 posts) -

Pretty ok. I have Fridays off so I slept in after being super tired during the week. My body is also kind of sore from gym and I feel like I'm getting a cold.

#11 Posted by Darson (439 posts) -

Wasn't that great. Then again this whole week hasn't been that hot either.

Bleh.

#12 Posted by TruthTellah (8384 posts) -

Glad you had a good day.

I was sick this morning, but I've been okay this afternoon. Some problems with my A/C that are going to cost a lot, but eh, things could be worse!

I turned 22 today and I'm feeling pretty good about it.

I didn't do anything in particular, but some people gave me some cards with money in them so that was nice.

#14 Posted by Ben_H (3291 posts) -

I am good thanks.

Yesterday I thought a $350 part in my car broke right after I got it back from the mechanic and was the cause of a misfire (my check engine light came on and my car started running like crap), but it turns out it was just a cracked spark plug. My mechanic had my entire engine out of my car along with the transmission and replaced the timing chain system and a small part of the coolant system, so I expected lots of tweaking to need to be done since the engine had to be completely retimed and everything. Hopefully this spark plug is the only thing. I'm swapping the spark plug out tomorrow. I would have today but I didn't find out the cause of my issue until after most of the part shops had closed (my mechanic looked at it for free for me).

Spent all day either getting yelled at by entitled people who wanted me to wave my magic tech support wand and fix all their problems despite explaining to them a dozen times that it can't be done, or had to explain extremely simple concepts of phone use to people so dumb they thought it was harder than rocket science. I then had a crappy meal for supper and now it's time to go toss and turn all night and then get up in seven hours to do it all over again. Livin the dream life.

#16 Posted by Ezakael (909 posts) -

My day was alright. I'm not particularly happy with the way my life has gone lately but I try to make the best of it. Going to school and trying to talk to the people I'm grouped with for projects and stuff. Making friends in College is hard (For me).

Thanks, it was all right. Some days are worse, some better, but for the most part pretty good. Living with certain unfortunate realities I have to deal with can be a bit stressful, but that's what cool shit like Video Games and Giant Bomb is for, right? It's takes away some of the edge I'd otherwise have.

#18 Posted by SMTDante89 (2540 posts) -

For the most part today was a pretty good day. The biggest thing was I had a hold on my college account of over $2800 because a grant didn't go through when it apparently did at the beginning of the semester. Went to our Financial Aid office and five minutes later the issue was resolved. Lost a bit of sleep over nothing apparently.

A little disappointed I can't see Gravity in theaters until probably the middle of the week due to work, but I'm sure it will be worth it.

Well it was mostly okay other than my treadmill breaking randomly. Everything eventually breaks though and since I used it every day for 2 years it was inevitable. Otherwise it was a fun day and I even finished Rayman Legends.

It was ok most of the day ... but a while ago I had some migraine but now is gone , gonna keep watching horror movies all the night

A little meh, was pretty unproductive today, overall not bad. Thanks for asking.

#22 Edited by Pr1mus (3772 posts) -

I wasted the day doing nothing worthwhile not unlike the previous 2764 days.

I laughed a lot during the Second Life segment of Unprofessional Friday so it's all good i guess.

Pretty much this.

Today was a good day. I played some GTA online, and then went out with some friends. Thanks for asking, duder!

#25 Posted by Rick_Fingers (524 posts) -

I'm having a pretty nice day. Out in the city for the Royal Australian Navy review. Just settling onto a picnic blanket with my wife and some friends in the botanical gardens now for the air show and fireworks. Been a nice time so far.

Thanks for asking :)

@rand0mzer00: I'm good! Just woke up, 8.50 AM. A bit early for a Saturday, but it's good to wake up with the morning.

How are you? Just fine as you said?

@ezakael: what year are you on? It's always hard in the beginning, but don't worry. Try to find people that like the things you like, but don't start a conversation with "do you like videogames?". I'm not saying you will, just a heads up as that might alienate some. Feel them out and, most importantly, talk about what they like. That way they'll want to talk to you more cause they know you'll listen. If so, they might be friend material. Good luck!

Pretty shitty actually, a girl I've been having a crush on told me she was going on a date. And then I went and got drunk with colleagues so 3 outta 5 stars?

NOT GREAT, BOB.

#29 Posted by 34f3ecwdc3 (162 posts) -

I want to run away, I am bored and tired of pathetic stuff. I know sometimes it's way better to talk to a stranger, but it's not for me, I tried it a few times. So I learned that it's better to be silenced in my own inferno; no matter how many times I am burning myself.

#30 Posted by SharkEthic (1003 posts) -

My son turned one yesterday, and I'm watching him play with a firetruck we got him. Pretty great day so far!

I'm currently in bed, and have been for the past three days suffering from flu-like symptoms. It sucks and today my sickness has gone but that damn fever is murder! More worrying is that in 3 days I have to pick my fiancee up from the airport (which is 400 miles each way), so here's hoping I get better quickly!

#32 Posted by Christoffer (1742 posts) -

I am doing splendid. Bumped into an old friend at the mall and we chatted for a while. It reminded I should be much better at keeping in touch with people. And tonight I'm meeting up with some other friends at a "rock nightclub"... I'm cautiously optimistic.

Have a nice day yourselves.

I'm doing okay, thank you for asking!

One time, I was having some money and family problems, and I'd gotten into an argument with one of my best friends. To top it off I was stuck waiting for a ride outside of school, and they were 45 minutes late. A really nice pretty girl came up and asked if I was okay, guess I must have looked as bummed as I was. Anyways it really cheered me up that a stranger asked that and sat with me for a couple of minutes. So I appreciate what you are doing!

#37 Edited by Nictel (2364 posts) -

I am terrible at this whole life thing. But I keep trying but keep running in to myself. Also I never ask for help because I don't know I feel like I have to be able to do it myself, and perfectly at that.

Not bad at all. I'm in pain and can barely move from getting plastered and making an ass of myself at karaoke last night (in a fun albeit embarrassing way), but it's the kind of pain that says "Hey, I did a thing!". To top it off, I drunkenly let my feelings out to a friend that I have a thing for, and she responded in kind, so yay!

I've been in a bad rut for a long time, so this is exactly what I needed.

Well things weren't perfect but it sure seemed like i was headed somewhere other than the couch to play more games.

It is a fine couch though.
