The first dentist I ever went to in LA ended my appointment by referring me to a plastic surgeon for a nose job. He went so far as to have his receptionist call and book me an appointment for a consultation.

Chapter 4: Part Two: How To Quit Part-Time Retail When You're 17
Best Buy wasn’t bad. I wouldn’t say that I liked it… but that’s because it was work and you will never hear me say that I liked ANY job because that’s just not in my blood. To this day I have yet to find a job that I don’t dread going to. Even if I worked from home I’d probably hate it. Hell, if I got paid to write stories about my old jobs, I’d probably hate that too. DO YOU HEAR ME PUBLISHERS? I DON’T WANT THIS TO EVER BECAUSE A COLLECTION OF SHORT STORIES. DON’T TAINT THIS.
Best Buy was easy, I’ll say that. And my hours weren’t terrible. Looking back it was probably amazing…like 16 hours a week or something. But at the time, when you have high school, and a girlfriend, and sports* taking up so much of your life, time is precious.
I am currently at $1,520 for my donations. Not bad at all! I am 28% to my goal of $5,500.
Training is coming along. I hate the start of training for these events because they start everyone at the same level, meaning they assume you are borderline incompetent. Meaning swim practice so far has been mainly drills that consist of “don’t drown!” I feel like the outcast of the team because I’m never there. I wonder if they talk shit about me behind my back like…
"Steve didn’t go to post-practice brunch with the team again! What a bastard. I hear he’s only in this to raise money for the cause and to challenge himself and doesn’t even care about making friends!"
“Because that’s the thing about Scooby-Doo: The bad guys in every episode aren’t monsters, they’re liars. I can’t imagine how scandalized those critics who were relieved to have something that was mild enough to not excite their kids would’ve been if they’d stopped for a second and realized what was actually going on. The very first rule of Scooby-Doo, the single premise that sits at the heart of their adventures, is that the world is full of grown-ups who lie to kids, and that it’s up to those kids to figure out what those lies are and call them on it, even if there are other adults who believe those lies with every fiber of their being. And the way that you win isn’t through supernatural powers, or even through fighting. The way that you win is by doing the most dangerous thing that any person being lied to by someone in power can do: You think.”—Scooby-Doo and Secular Humanism (via love-and-radiation)
