      I think I might stay in Austin from the 8 (Tues) to the 14 (Next Monday) this year. Basically stay in town and check out everything I've ever wanted to see. I've always believed that RTX was my vacation of the year but the crowd and travel always leaves me spread a little thin.

      I've already got the time scheduled off and just need to purchase a plane ticket. Only reason why I haven't yet is because I might stay even longer. smiley13.gif

      Got to keep the streak alive of having attended every single RTX so far.

    • The single life

      4 years ago

      iamjohngalt

      So some of my conversations at RTX (all of which were amazing btw) made me realize I might be to much of a bachelor.

      I have a lava lamp. A water bed. A budget devoted to the bar night with my friends. (Personally I think I'm just being fiscally smart here but to each their own)
      Multiple gaming consoles. A subscription to Hulu and Netflix that I honestly use a lot.
      Finally, a pool table and a gym membership.

      That's just things I own. Easy things to notice. It makes me wonder about my personality and how I act / what I say.

      It reminds me of the last girl that I talked to about half a year back. We went out and talked over late night breakfast and eventually she asked me what I was looking for in a relationship. Pretty typical question that I saw coming but completely didn't think about my answer.

      So I gave a pretty brutal answer that consisted of "well I'm not exactly looking at the moment because I like being single". Faux pas, I know.

      In my defense, there is a major difference between dating somebody and being in a relationship with somebody. At least to me... Not to her though. So to sum it up I basically got accused of "trying to hit it and quit it" when I was honestly looking to date but not for a relationship. Oh well.

      The single life is supposed to be a little more simple which is in itself it's own reward. A relationship seems harder but more rewarding in the long run. But damn if the crossover from one lifestyle to the other isn't getting a little bit harder every time I think about changing.

    • Highlight of my week...

      4 years ago

      iamjohngalt

      I couldn't play Minecraft at RTX. Watched a few minutes worth when a roommate played it on his laptop but watching isn't the same. Flew home and had to immediately prepare for my work week. Oh and my car needs to have the fuel pump replaced. Whoopee. However, none of that matters now...

      It's Friday at 3:30 in the morning. Just got off work and I got a 6 pack of Corona. I'm playing some damn Minecraft.

    • Fitbit working well so far.

      4 years ago

      iamjohngalt

      So I purchased a fitbit for myself. It was (with a little luck) supposed to arrive BEFORE RTX. Unfortunately, it did not so I couldn't track all my progress across Austin. I did track myself at work tonight though. It was a pretty slow night and I only worked from 4 until 12ish. So the stats are:

      21,863 steps out of 10,000 as my goal.

      9.74 miles traveled out of 5 as my goal.

      3,824 calories burned out of my 2,184 goal.

      So far that's an awesome start. I knew my job was physically demanding but I never realized HOW much so until now.

      There aren't any real issues with the device so far. Appears to be a good investment but I wish it was a little cheaper.

      If you have this device then ADD me up on the list. I'm not the most competitive guy when it comes to these kinds of things but I know how easy it can be to slow down using one of these. Being competitive with it is good motivation.

      Well except for me. Everybody in my family has packed up and gone to the mountains for a week. I'm staying behind and working to save up for RTX Year 3!

      It sounds weird but I don't exactly have anything besides my family keeping me here in North Carolina.

      Everybody in my family either has kids or a significant other. I've got neither.Woe is me...

    • Game of Thrones (no spoilers)

      4 years ago

      iamjohngalt

      After watching it I could only think, "WELL... that was... an episode". Really interesting stuff and I can't wait to get to that point in the books.

      I did read that something was included that wasn't in the books. I'm not normally one against gore on TV because the warnings are there and I know what I'm getting myself into... however there wasn't much of a warning for a young pregnant girl to be stabbed multiple times in the stomach.

      Anyways, it's a great show and the books are out there along with the show being available on dvd. If you haven't started watching or reading then you're missing out like I was the first season.

    • Changes aren't changing anything?

      4 years ago

      iamjohngalt

      My reality check is sinking in now. I thought that by changing jobs I would be able to do whatever I wanted whenever I wasn't at work.

      But where did all these bills come from? It's so strange to see a graph of my bank account and watch as income increases so to do my monthly bill withdraws.

      It's not just my spending habits increasing or anything like that. Everybody see's me at this new job and now everything has gone up. Especially rent.

      On another note... you ever have friends that you just deal with but don't know why? I'm an all-inclusive kind of guy so I don't want to shun people away but I'm not sure what I should do. It would be ridiculous to ask somebody to change for you anyways.

    • August makes it's third and final move

      5 years ago

      iamjohngalt

      Attacking my mind and my wallet at the same time.

      Work hours getting drastically cut back for a month or so. Doesn't sound that bad except for the fact that I love money. Seriously. I've got plans and money is that fuel. Poor wallet.

      I also can't sit around for long with no work to do. Whenever I do that I tend to think I'm wasting free time at home when I CLEARLY could be spending it on a beach somewhere. Not going crazy yet but if work doesn't pick up soon then I may just pack up and take an extended vacation.

      Kind of goes against logic though since money has become tight...

      I'm so ready for this now. My wallet disagrees.
      I've made my choice.

      I'll really miss that wallet...

    • August makes it's second move...

      5 years ago

      iamjohngalt

      The month of August changes tactics from attacking my body to attacking my wallet. More specifically my car...

      Go to open door. BROKEN DOOR HANDLE.
      shit...

      Start car. WHAT'S THAT NOISE? EXHAUST LEAK?
      fucking a....

      Driving down road. Whaaa? WHEEL BEARING IS MAKING A LOUD HUMMING NOISE.
      come on...

      3 problems in one day. I'd like to get out my bike and start riding it to work but I'm convinced I'll get hit by an airplane or something ridiculous during this horrible month.

        Yeah... well the east coast I mean. Just enjoyed the single life and the free time while I had some. All out of it now b/c of a new job. I haven't even listened to the podcast recently. Pretty sad of me.

      When are you going to RTX?

      • ISIDEARMI

        5 years ago

        Ok so you'll have your shirt. Yes there will be 3 other Orange Monkey Eagle shirts, one drunk tank shirt, and one taco burnie shirt

      • iamjohngalt

        5 years ago

        I'll be leaving this Friday. Anybody else going to RTX who has one of your shirts? If so do they have the one I'm getting? Which ones should I be on the look out for?

        It's pretty exciting knowing that I'll be wearing something that's super rare.

      I like the way you think (reference to the Geoff thread thing). It's like they're trying to find reasons to worry instead of accepting rational evidence and reason.

      Anyways. /done with thread.

      • iamjohngalt

        5 years ago

        Yeah I honestly just laugh at that thread now. I suspect a lot of people swing by the drunktank forums just to talk about Geoff and a good conspiracy is more fun to talk about. Something could come out later and everybody in that thread could look like an asshole, myself included.

        I don't know what's going on really (some of them could actually be right), but the rampant speculation is a little maddening.

      I'm just happy you remember me lol. Yeah I'm sorry I didn't mean to fall off the face of the earth but what can you do. I made a quick journal about it and I plan on staying on here for a while. I'm just getting caught up on RTX stuff and peoples journals. Take it easy and don't worry about drama. I'm back on here so I got your back.
