    • Totally Overwhelming!

      7 years ago

      JappyHack

      I almost made some sort of journal about how overwhelmed I am with video games right now but i doubt any one really cares that much or will have choice words about how to manage my problem Which would be nice but it's not really worth the effort to post a journal that sounds like I'm complaining when clearly it is my fault and I have no reason to complain. . .

      Then a paragraph about "if only I could do this for a living" blah blah blah. . . I suck.

      I'm in the planning phases of working on something to that degree. More info to come at an undetermined date that will be forgotten about by time it gets around to being posted.

      Until then keep an eye out smiley8.gif

    • Taken for Granted:

      JappyHack

      My arms, after a good work out could no longer support my own weight, had to use my face to get up from sitting on the ground. . . Also power steering in my truck no longer felt like power steering. smiley13.gif

      Also does anyone else feel like they are piloting a ship or vehicle when placing the weights on the bar or in their storage pegs? I do. smiley9.gif

    • Crazy Schedule!

      7 years ago

      JappyHack

      These next few weeks are going to be crazy. This week is the last week to use PTO before it resets and a number of people in my department are not good at using PTO (myself included) and have an excess left over. It's not all bad, 40 hours of it rolls over to the next year. However this is what things look like for this week, Their are 6 people on my team including me(i'll use names since it looks better than saying this guy and the other guy): My L2 Alvin has the entire week off, Garrett has Monday-Wednesday off, Gerard has today off and a couple half days, Jacinda is working this week but on a different team, and Aminta (loathe) works this week as normal as well. So that pretty much just leaves me for today.

      Now to my schedule: I have Thursday Friday off this week. Next week I have Wednesday through Friday off and the week after that I have Monday through Thursday off. Aside from this week, Everything is all set for RTX in regards to time off. I'm using the entirety of my roll over PTO for RTX including two Floating Holidays (don't get me started on these).

      With all that said, I think i will go forward everyone phones who are gone today to see how busy i can get or how much work I can handle to make Aminta look bad smiley8.gif . . .

      Hopefully everything goes pretty well the next few days.

    • Sore...

      I'm very sore at the moment, I started working out with some friends after work this week. It has been almost 3 years since I have done any sort of weight lifting. Got to get fit for RTX I guess :P

    • Above average amount of journal posting

      7 years ago

      JappyHack

      To expand some on my previous journal. My battery ran out of juice and the store was fresh out of head light fluid cause apparently everyone bought it all to give to Gavin at some point in their lives. So I had to put my old battery down smiley3.gif . But now I have this new shiny one. . . and my truck starts up so fast now. . . and does not smell like gas as much as it has so I assume my truck likes the new battery.

      The actually story goes like this: Yesterday i went to work unbeknownst to me that my battery was on it's last charge. it worked fine after work once leaving driving the short ways to JaymesHaze's place. It didn't even stutter when i left there to head to the near by Target (also referring to previously mentioned journal) Upon leaving from target, not a single issue. Arriving at my apartment complex i decided to check the mail, I pulled over. Turned my engine off for less than a minute as my keys are all on the same ring. . . and whence trying to continue on my way my engine refused to start. Embarrassingly I pushed my truck towards the back of the complex and managed to back it into a space near my place. The end.

      it was too late to do anything about it, and Diablo 3 was beckoning. i resolved to ride my bike to work today, which i did without too much trouble, a friend of mine brought me home and helped me get my truck jump-started that which we drove to Auto Zone for a new battery.

    • Edit: I added this Title. Laundry 2.0!

      JappyHack

      Finally got a new laundry card. . . and a new car battery, and some things I needed for my apartment. . . some new clothes that looked clean for work today. . . it's times like this I hate spending money. Well I'm off to do laundry now. smiley1.gif

    • Laundry?

      7 years ago

      JappyHack

      Nope, I went to refill my laundry card and put it in the wrong slot. . . and could not get it out again. . . I guess I will be doing laundry later after I either get a new card or get mine back. I feel like such an idiot for this. . . oh well.

    • The Humble Indie Bundle V

      7 years ago

      JappyHack

      If you haven't heard, what rock do you live under? The Humble
      Indie Bundle V is pretty ridiculous now. Not only has it sold more than any previous bundle but it has great games in it such as Amnesia, Bastion and recently added Braid and Super Meat Boy.

      I just wanted to bring it to anyone's attention who has not checked it out yet.

      Go here to see for your self.

      I bought it, and can't wait to play some of these games.

    • Guess What Today Is?!

      7 years ago

      JappyHack

      It's my. . . whats that? ... The premier of Season 10 of RvB! Yes that is today also but what I was trying to say is that today is also. . . wait no, Stop interrupting me to talk about RvB, yes I know that's why most of us are on this site, but still there is something more important than that. Today is my birt. . . never-mind, no one cares. everyone is just going to talk about how RvB Season 10 comes out today and maybe about how RTX passes ship tomorrow. I doubt anyone cares that I have been on this earth for 24 years. I mean why would anyone care about something as trivial as that. Lots of people have been around loner than that, I have been here 23 years whats another year to that. No big deal right,

      Well let me word this differently, Maybe if Io twist it around to say that RoosterTeeth has given me a given me a great Birthday Gift by releasing the season premiere today and not on any other day. I have something to look forward to when I get home from work. . . yeah that's right I'm also working today. of all days, my birthday. . . err I mean the premier of RvB s. 10. and Memorial day, on a side note, my heart goes out to recognize those lost in the seemingly endless wars our country is involved in. Now before anyone says "oh you get Holiday Pay right?". No i don't My place of employment decided it be best to provide us with "Floating Holidays: to allow us to use our holidays at other times. So I have mine scheduled for Around RTX to help lighten the amount of PTO I would have had to use so I have extra just in case I need to take some for an emergency.

      I don't really make plans for my Birthday and I hate surprises. I think some friends and I will check out the Irish Pub near my new place called Rosie McCaffrey's, then be home in time to watch the RT site crash from the massive influx of viewers. I'm sure though it won't be as bad as last year since I'm sure Adam has put a lot of work into preventing that from happening, But as seen from any huge release servers still crash no matter how much preparation has been done to prevent it. smiley13.gif

    • Moved!

      7 years ago

      JappyHack

      I'm all moved now, except for the fact that I'm still in the boxes stage where everything i need is packed up somewhere waiting to be put away.

      Some of the Pros for my new place lnclude:

      smiley9.gif Shorter commute to work, I cut off 10 miles!
      smiley9.gif It's my own place for a while, which means it's awesomely quiet.
      smiley9.gif No more cat hair. . . everywhere, don't get me wrong, I love cats *glances at profile pic* ( i need to change that soon,) but I am extremely happy to have a break from the copious amount of cat hair two cats produce and leave all over the place. . . oh and coughed up hairballs. smiley4.gif
      smiley9.gif There is an Irish Pub down the street as well as a great Japanese/Italian restaurant and an Oregano's and a bunch of other cool places to eat.

      Well since I have been on vacation for a week. . . I have to get caught up at work today smiley2.gif though there is not as much to do as i thought there would be. smiley1.gif

      Until next time. . .

      these are the more prevalent ones on the market

      the first is a songbird ocarina which is a basic model
      the second a clayz which looks more rough but gets highly impressive sound
      the third is a 6th street pottery model which i have heard nothing about specifically but I have bought from them in the past and like their products
      t number four is a newer piece from songbird which is supposed to be one of the more impressive ones on the market
      number 5 is a stl mini which is alright but suffers from issues with it's subholes
      6 is the larger zelda piece from stl which has some of the same issues as the mini but less so and it looks way better
