A bit of honesty

I'm rarely on this site and have rarely posted about anything in any format because the honest truth is I've been on this site before under a different username, a different account.  That account was bullied off the site.  I was much younger then. I was ignorant of things and was just looking to have a good time with friends I made. Older members, adults, on this site came after me when I was 14 years old and bullied me off the site.  That's the BZPower I remember and know. I mad

January 2018

January of 2018 was the last time I was here.   It's been a long time. Lot's changed. I broke a couple of times, picked myself up. Still kicking.   Might write a short story or two. About something.

Post-Basic and @Tech School

It's been a while.   A long while. Not exactly sure of the time frame to be honest, but it may be far too long.   Well, where was I? Air Force Basic Training, 323rd Training Squadron, Lackland AFB, Texas. Had a fantastic time. Grew a lot. Lost 15lbs, almost made honor grad, and met some great people(and some awful people.).   Now, I'm at Tech School for Weather. Meteorology. Cloud science. Keesler AFB, Mississippi. I have about 6 1/2 months ahead of me and I'm looking forward to getting past

On Writing

Some stories are like corn. It takes a few attempts and a few crops before you can grow the perfect earful. Also it takes a lot of time.   Then some stories are like random roaches in the Walmart parking lot. Before you know it, they have run up your pant leg and are getting cozy with your privates.

Black Friday

It's not worth it. I've worked in both retail and the food business. Don't go Black Friday shopping at midnight. Or at 3AM. Wait until like 7AM like a reasonable person. They'll still have TV's before Christmas. Those waffle toasters you're jazzed about? Still there. The latest iBox game? Boy, lemme tell you something about the way they will have it.   Enjoy family. Give thanks for all the good you have in this world.   Happy Thanksgiving

This election was YUGE.     Seriously though, it's just another 4 years. The sun will come up tomorrow and the world will spin on. It isn't the end of the world.

OshKosh

I'm going to be gone for two weeks, as I am going to OshKosh WI to volunteer at the EAA airshow.   If there's anything anybody needs of me before I leave, message me and I'll try and get it down. At 3AM tomorrow morning, the bus pulls out and I am gone!

Do a computer job....

...get paid with a computer.   That was wild.   I was asked to repair and fix up two computers, both of which are rather fast and good machines once they were fixed. The lady then asked which one was better, so I let her know, and she gave me the slower one as payment.   Not complaining, I needed a good gaming machine....

Getting Wrapped Up Into Things

I have a heart that aches for people that are hurting, that are in need, that need just a bit of help. I have a hard time saying no, because I never want to say no. I don't like denying people help. It just rubs me the wrong way.   But as a result, I can end up getting myself wrapping up in events that I have no clue where they started or where they will end. But that's who I am. It's what I am.   I help people.   And sometimes I find myself suffering for it.

The Art of Moderating

No, this isn't a place to discuss recent, but unfortunate events. No, this isn't an attack on the great staff we are lucky to have. These are four rules I've created for myself, over my time as a moderator(s) and even once as an Admin of various sites. And I feel I should share them.   1. Be respectful. Always. Even when emotions run high, don't attack. It's not worth it, and it doesn't help anybody. Give the staff your respect, and if they are worth their salt, they'll return it.   2. Be acco

$1,456 in tips since I've started delivering pizzas. And this isn't even a rich town, it's more bordering poor/middle class.     It's a lot of money.

I don't make the pizzas

I just get them fast, fresh, and hot. So please, don't yell at me for them being delivered earlier than you wanted. Sorry for being efficient.

Rouge One

While I'm not too pleased with the idea of a flush of Star Wars movies(my poor wallet), this one does look interesting. I hope it can provide more light on the origins of the Rebellion in movie versus the books and comics.   Also, running at AT-ATs? Do you want to die? Obviously.

Restart

Gotta get things done again, even if it's some stupid little story in the Library. This place was a great stress release for me, and I need it again definitely.   Went from one job to another to another in the span of three weeks, and just facing that grand ole uncertainty about the future.   What's next for this here site? Another story? The BZPRPG? I don't know.   Maybe both, just overwhelm myself again. Seems like a great idea to me.
