I mean I hadn’t really made much progress looking at cars since the snow this month threw a wrench at that idea, so I have only looked at one car (2013 Ford Focus) so far. Hopefully now that snow is clearing up some, I should be able to check out some others this weekend. And well, maybe by the end of February, I might have a car of my own. Not sure what I will do with that “freedom” once I have it, besides going to work, home, and stores by myself. *shrugs*
I guess maybe go to a gym as I definitely need to do more physical activity in my day and I need to lose some weight. I am considering maybe joining the YMCA since it has indoor pool and well, I love to swim (I regret not swimming during my Virginia trip as it feel like forever since I have gone swimming.). Obviously it going to come down to the cost of membership and whether or not their pool is open for use during the night (and the winter), so I definitely have look a bit more into.
Besides that, I guess I could use my car to attend one of PennLUG meetings (Probably the one in April) as I am still part of the meeting newsletter for that. It might be interesting to meet some local LEGO fans there. Although they look like they are mostly Town & Train focus, so I am not sure how well I would fit in (Especially since I am not a great MOCer). *shrugs*
As for traveling out of state, I am not really at experience level to do that yet and I don’t have the time (Only get like two weeks of vacation a year, after all) to travel too far out of state. Really the only expectation to this would be going to Delaware as it’s really close (Like you don't even need to go on highway to get there.) and the stores there have no sale tax.
Alright, that’s enough rambling about possible car “adventures”. Let’s move on to how work been this month. I would say it been going pretty well this month, especially since last week I was given permission to get some overtime since apparently we had been enough engineering work this month to warrant it.
However while it has been a good work month, the snow from last weekend unfortunately caused a roof leak above my desk, so I been without my work computer since Tuesday. XD Thankfully though, it doesn’t seem like anything serious was damaged (Outside of some water damage on my desk and some trash documents being soaked.), although I am still waiting on news regarding my computer. Our IT guy seems to be of the opinion that my computer will be alright and should be back up on Monday, so only time will tell on its fate.
So yeah, I have been playing music chairs for past few days. It been a bit of a weird experience to say the least as every computer has their own quirks to them and are set up differently (Both desktop wise and physical as the monitors are different sizes and are facing different directions, ect.). It definitely making me miss having my work computer. XD
That’s about it on work stuff this month. I guess next I’ll talk about some LEGO stuff, although there’s not much news to share really. I got Rey & Captain Phasma Buildable figure sets at Target awhile back. To be exact, I got them on the day that I saw The Force Awakens for second time (It was just as good as first time. I would love to go see it again.). XD I also got a Star Wars book (Lost Stars, by Claudia Gray) based on Black Six's suggestion, which I need to finish reading that (I am on page 300). But anyway, Rey is my favorite build between the two sets.
Besides that, last weekend I start sorting through my old LEGO Bricks. I think I made decent progress with that, although I am far from done. My ultimate goal for this is set up a organized system, so I can try to maybe experiment with making non-Bionicle MOCs, ect. Not sure how well that will go, but I am going to give it a shot.
Alright, that's enough from me. I hope you all have a great day and thank you for taking the time to read this. Talk to you later, BZPers.
