      It's almost NYE, I thought maybe try to spark something for people interested... I'm just finishing up with the Foundation Light program, and was thinking of going to the abs one to start working a little on posture/scoliosis/hyperlordosis. I think the general body of their work is really decent, although the meal information leaves something be desired- but still helpful as a baseline. As a pescatarian, I have to fudge things a lot...


      What's everyone else think? For the record I mean the stuff at the Darebee website. Anyone gone through any other programs or workout cards that they'd like to comment on?

    • Too Many Projects...

      Quite obviously, I haven't been "active", just lurking and giving the stray comment or two. Truth is, I've been floundering since the start of this year. There was that temp job I tried, but after too many labor-law violations (and the fact I was absolutely not doing what we discussed in interview) I decided to end it before they went any further. Since I had to leave the nonprofit I'd been contracting at during this due to burnout, things have been... less than productive.


      And my brain has not taken well to the sudden overload/drought swing.


      I've been trying to take this time to get back into job search and further working on all those old projects/ideas I've had floating around (finishing those will open up more space in my mind and storage), but I've not had a single interview since going unemployed again. At least the sewing has seen some progress. I'll have to wait to actually finish the quilt until I can afford the batting, but the squares are almost completely put together. After that, there's the companion cube that I hit some roadblocks on, and a little engineering project I've wanted to undertake since I was in high school, which I've recently taken to sketching out using online examples and some draft measurements of the part I've been in possession of for several years. At the moment, it looks like the majority of it will be made of bonded cardboard and whatever slat/pole-like material I can come across (this will absolutely work as a reclaimed-materials piece of equipment). When this thing gets made, I might be able to make some sale-worthy artwork with enough practice.


      But this all requires that I actually follow through with the work involved and not flake out like I have the past however-many years. My sleep schedule is swinging yet again, so at least I'l have the quiet hours to try...

      So....... he is thinking about taking two friends on a field trip through Chicago and Michigan... for their inside joke about Charlie the Unicorn. If there's one on display, he would plan to take them to Field Museum to see a liopleurodon, then to the LP, then over the Mackinac Bridge (we're on a bridge, Charlie!) to Sugarloaf Mountain. Close enough. It has a "cave" that was described to me as only big enough for a very adventurous child.


      Dear god, why do these things keep being concocted in this house?

    • Truth in advertising, or at least the logo.

      For a major project, I've been trying to learn more about graphic design in order to make it look somewhere remotely approachable/nice/pleasant. One thing I've found out very quickly in this endeavor I will share:


      If a 'teacher''s idea of showing you how to create business logos is directly based on stock clip-art from Adobe Illustrator (and by business logos, I mean they use as examples several they actually sold to clients without altering the images): run.


      On the other hand, I'm getting a much better appreciation for the difficulty of the work so many of you guys do here for a living. You guys rock.

      So... maybe it might be a good idea for people to pass on stuff that they've found to help out fellow group members.


      Here's some: Activision has an office in Eden Prairie and are currently looking for some people, including QA game testers; from what I've been told, it's June-November this year. Here's the list of jobs they have for our state: https://activision.jibeapply.com/activision/jobs?k... . The game tester listing is the last one as of the time I viewed it.


      Good luck to anyone able to apply; I can't make it out there.

      If you could have one feature or defining trait from the character that is your icon, what would it be?

      Answered: Apr 6, 2016

      Oh man... Ed's such a cool character, too! If I was forced to choose only one, I would have to say her knack for following her curiosity/gut instincts in such an honest way- she went with the flow of the world around her, very rarely made full-on assumptions about anything she came across, and while people wrote her behavior off most every time as her just being a silly kid, she uncovered really important stuff and had fun doing it.

      We have internet again, and it's been working well even with overcast weather. Hard-links rule. Very happy to see everyone doing well, and I hope things are also good for you guys offline too.

      Hey anyone who reads these,


      Yep I've been offline for quite a while... and it's not going to change anytime soon. The roommate who acts as our "building manager" decided to sign us up for the local city-supported fiber optic ISP... 25Mbps for $30/month, a pretty sweet deal. Here's the problem: that means we'll need a physical hookup, and it's February in Minnesota. Which means we have to wait until the ground thaws. Which will be probably another month.


      My notifications are going to get full.... But I promise to be back once it all gets done. The music shares might not be, though- I think I might be done with that. But it was a good run while it lasted, right? I'll probably still do it here and there in other journals, but I've got other things I need to work on.


      On a side note, I got a temp gig which I'm using to prove I can still work a regular job to a better company. Here's hoping that works out. With any luck, I'll be able to give you guys some happy news in a month!

      So I decided I wanted to send someone a warm and fuzzy message that I didn't know yet. I saw your Ed picture and as someone who plans on at least watching the episode "My Funny Valentine" today, I knew that I should send one to you haha. Happy Warm Fuzzies Day! smiley0.gif

        Thanks! Ed's my favorite character from Cowboy Bebop (Spike is a close second). I just like how geeky she is, without even really identifying herself as that- she's a kid who really likes playing with computers and can do cool stuff with them.
