      The next 3 days will be the last week with my current employer. I'm thankful and happy to have had a steady job over the last year, but I need to move on and find a better way of providing for my family.

      I'm not looking forward to getting up at 4 am to be to work before 6 am, however.

      I went into the office expecting an interview. Nope! The first thing I got handed was a test to see how much knowledge I had of electrical equipment. Then came the paperwork and W-4 stuff. There was even a sheet I had to fill out for Homeland Security! The guy literally asked me about 3 questions, none of which were really even interview questions. Should be starting soon within the next couple of weeks.

    • My family could use some encouragement

      I usually don't post serious stuff on here but I'm making an exception. For about a year now my wife's grandfather had been fighting leukemia, and a rather aggressive non-curable form at that. He had been going to Chapel Hill's cancer treatment center for his initial treatmentsetup and continued his kemo at home here. For a while the cancer got beat and he was in remission. It came back and he started another kemo treatment and eventally he went to Duke to try a new treatment. Last week he had a reaction to the treatment and was immediately taken off. They then examined him to see if they had made any progress. They are giving him 2-4 weeks left to live.

      Naturally my family is distraught over this. So if you guys find the time in your thoughts and prayers, my family could use the encouragement and strength.

      I'm really starting to get bummed out on the new site. I love that it looks more modern and looks cleaner and nicer, but there are definitely some features from the old site that I miss.

      For example:

      If I want to see what my friends/watched users are posting, I don't want to have to go to a community dashboard. I just want to go to my profile and have an automatic feed.

      The notifications seem a tad broken.

      Most of whom I used to talk to was in a forum which is either never getting ported over to the new site or is going to take a long time to find its way over.

      Actually that gives me an idea...

    • Strange, yet delicious

      Last night late after work I decided to go hunting for dinner. Rather than wait in line for 30 minutes at Cookout or go to Taco Bell, I decided to give Munchies a try. This particular Munchies was started by a guy (whom I've had a couple of business classes together with) and his brother.

      I had "The Fat Seahawk" which consisted of chicken fingers, jalapeno poppers, mozzarella sticks, onion rings, and fries all on a sub roll. Strange, expensive, and delicious.

      I had no intention of writing 2 journals today, but I felt like this was worth mentioning.

      I started playing Tomb Raider and about 90 minutes in the game freezes. "Ok, no big deal. I'll just open task manager." There is a black wall where there should be a desktop background, although the taskbar is still at the bottom. I hover my mouse over the task manager icon, which partially pulls up TM and both Tomb Raider and TM are Not Responding. Wtf? Literally nothing I clicked on made the black wall go away.
      The solution: unplug the laptop and pop the battery out. What a waste of 15 minutes.

      I ask all who send them, before I accept.
      What is your reason for sending me a friend request?

        Well I see you in lvl 20 roll call all the time and whenever we do talk it's always nice and interesting. If this were Facebook, I wouldn't be sending you a friend request unless I knew you. But I send/add pretty much anyone on here that I come across because I wanted to meet/talk to new and interesting people that have similar interests to my own.

        In a nutshell, I sent a friend request because I enjoy meeting/talking to interesting people on the RT site and one day hope to meet everyone at RTX whenever I can get myself there.
