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
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.
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.
I've self-appraised my coin collection today. Took me around 6 hours to get through the more important pieces of the collection, and now my back hurts. But the worth stands somewhere between $80,000 and $100,000.
Gather 'round ladies and gents, because it has come to my attention that nobody has been giving you poor chaps regular safety briefings. That, that is a crime. Here's a simple one for you to start off with: When you are about to head out to volunteer to run a parking lot for 500+ cars for a classic car show, do not grab the bottle of expired sunblock to use. Grab the bottle of new stuff, even if it says it only lasts for 3 hours, versus the 6 for the expired one. Because it won't matter
Second Interview went amazing, the guy told me that I was one of the best people he's ever interviewed, and they would let me know Monday. They called Tuesday, and told me that THEY WEREN'T INTERESTED IN EMPLOYING ME. They said I was overqualified for the position, and they had no management positions open. I was applying for a starter-position.
Gearing up for a return. Don't know what it will imply. My interaction with the BZPRPG is probably going to die off and stay dead, as I lack time for that. I may end up writing the RPGs I'm working on as stories instead. Expect more stories, period, anyways. Bionicle is a neat concept, and I would like to dabble in it more.
Didn't get accepted into the Civic Leadership Academy. That sucks, but I'm actually on a waiting list if anybody drops out. Saw Star Wars. It was a funny, enjoyable movie. Did it bring anything new or have any original plot points from Episode IV? No. I also laugh at those that do last-minute Christmas shopping. I finished all of mine before the 6th! It cost me about $500 though.... Production of Fallen City is moving along slowly, and plot points are being written down for the Ark #351
Early December. Know what that means, right? That means the selection of 24 participants is going to be announced soon for a Civic Leadership school in Washington D.C. Yours truly, Atlas, is one the many that entered and submitted an essay(for a topic that will not be discussed here.). I am on the edge of my seat. Wish me luck.
Couple days late, but whatever. Picked up some DLC for Europa Universalis IV(some unit packs, and the Art of War expansion). And a war hammer. Legitimate, 100% steel and hickory war hammer from Cold Steel. Yeah. It was a good day. Plus, I had the day off!
If you pick up an item and carry it around the store with you, and just toss it onto another display or shelf; If you knock over a display and don't even let anybody know that you knocked it over; If you try to haggle a better discount on items we're practically giving away for free; I will most likely hate you. Sincerely, Retail Workers I worked from 10PM Thanksgiving Day to 8AM the next day, and my energy drink only let me sleep for two hours before I went back in
