  1. OKAY, let's try this again! Zwei the corg: Pirate the calico: (tuxedo cat whose name I still can't remember): https://boomzilla.io/img/tux.jpg
  2. Zwei: Pirate: (I haven't caught this one's name yet):
  3. I'm in my new place. Got a room off of CL for $550/month. Housemates are pretty cool, kinda nerdy like me. It's not in the greatest location for someone without a car But, at least I have the eBike. sharing the house with a dog and two cats this past week and a half. I love both species very much, but TBH I think I am slightly more of a cat person
  4. I'll become an Arizonan tomorrow afternoon! For three months, at minimum. Hopefully longer, if the company wants to convert me to permanent! Like I've whined a lot about, not a huge fan of the Phoenix metro. That said, I do think the desert southwest wilderness/aesthetic is quite lovely. And, the job itself seems interested/and pays better than what I've had! @InfinityCircuit @heavyboots: I'll be in Mesa until May 1st (if they decline to convert me to perm), or indefinitely (if they *do* want to keep me on). I'd totally welcome another mini-meat Most of my weekends should be free.
  5. got a Fitbit for Christmas. My sleep sucks
  6. REMEMBER. COMRADES! WE ARE TANK! THEY TAKE OUT TREADS. WE ARTILLERY! THEY TAKE OUT MAIN GUN. WE ARE PILLBOX! THEY TAKE OUT MACHINE GUN, WE BUNKER! THEY TAKE OUT ARMOR, WE HEROES!
  7. ^^^they call Powerpoints "decks" in the new job place (where I'll be in February), and they all have that *aesthetic*
  8. I'm a misanthrope, but a misanthrope over matters of taste (I derive little pleasure from the experience of other humans), rather than morality ("humans are evil").
  9. Oh, man, it's that time again! Where I, yet again, think of buying a car. So, I *was* planning to just Uber/Lyft there, but the cost would be about $150/week. So, like... I'm semi-seriously considering getting a shitty, sub-$1500 car. I can take risks with a shitty car since, if it *were* to fail, I'd just fall back on Uber/Lyft. I'd *love* to just use public transit, except this is Phoenix (and, the exurbs of Phoenix at that!) where transit sucks, and it's hot as hell 90% of the time. IDK. The initial "internship" is 12 weeks, and I am *likely*, but not guaranteed, to be converted to permanent after that. So, even if I *do* only remain 12 weeks, rideshares would cost between $1.5K, and $2K. Yes, I realize car ownership has all sorts of annoying costs besides just the purchase. FWIW, I'm working at UPS this holiday, so I'll actually have enough spare cash I can buy a cheap-ass car outright (no loan).
  10. If I get converted to perm at new job, I'll probably also try to finally wrap up my bachelor's degree by 2021. I can go for a bachelors of science, or a bachelors of art. Does... does getting a BS over a BA *really* make a difference? Either in future job hunts, or in applying to grad school? So, like, I am literally *one* credit away from a BA 😮 And, it could be any class, like some silly Underwater Basket Weaving sorta thing. For the BS, I'd need five upper-division science credits. I'd almost certainly do it remotely, FWIW, via my old school in Oly (TESC), rather than try to transfer to ASU or whatever.
  11. not a dedicated UXO subReddit, but of course there is an EOD one https://www.reddit.com/r/EOD/
