Party on, Offer HN, Party on

Well, a very cool trend is happening at Hacker News - people are posting "Offer HN" threads offering advice and help. The first one seems to be "Will Work for Karma" by todayiamme, which kicked the whole thing off. My favorite is "Tax Help for Startup Entrepreneurs" because there's a lot of insight and analysis just in the thread itself. I like learning about law, but it's damn expensive to learn about either in time or money. That said, learning law can save you a lot of money when you write a contract correctly or when you have a company buyback shares instead of purchasing them yourself when buying a partner in a two person partnership out.

After a bunch of "Offer HN" threads started kicking up, there were two discussion topics, both by guys I respect. "Please stop offering your services" and "Please keep offering your services" by Swombat and Jacques. There seems to be a few themes going on:

1. Some people think this is really cool and nice of people. 2. Some people are skeptical of the intentions of people doing this. 3. Some people don't want to see HN get bogged down/clogged up by this.

Let's cover those in reverse order.

First, if it gets out of control and you want to see news without offers, Paul Graham implemented http://news.ycombinator.com/offerless - no offers there. So that solves that problem.

Schools Back......Yay.

On The Anon Girl

The title was obviously supposed to seem sarcastic, but I'm actually so glad that school starts again tomorrow. That means that choir starts too, and all my other activites. Doing all these stuff, and not sitting alone in my room all day, should help me. I'll be around some of the people who make me laugh, and I'll be around all my friends to help me get my mind of stuff. Of course there's gonna be those kids at school, who sometimes you just wanna put a book in their mouth so they will be quiet, but I mean other than those people it's alright. I've gotta stop thinking off all the negative things, and start thinking about the positives, I'm never going to get over this if I don't. I've gotta start getting out more too, sitting in my room alone, listening to music isn't gonna help anything! Let's hope the first day back tomorrow, goes well, if not....well uh oh.
