  4. I might be partnering up with a good friend of mine in her real estate business. She got her license right about the time I started working this job last year. We met at the real estate investment company like 10+ years ago. She was the head of our construction department, and one of the only people in the company I could stand to be around. Through the years she's been like a huge savior, throwing us small jobs from her property preservation company and her husband's home reno company. Now she's an agent and doing her own flips on the side. She's doing well enough that she wants some he

  6. Just processing here and taking over this thread for now. I havent written poetry for a long time, but wrote this today: Grief is not unlike the ocean We stay in the shallows to hide from our feelings Afraid of the undercurrent if we travel too far As though it would pull us down and never let us go As though it would carry us into depths that are beyond us But grief is not unlike the ocean It breaks the dangerous rocks of relationships Into beautiful sand that we can admire and enjoy It hides beauty in the depths The beauty of new life

  7. So I contacted the recruiter that found me for Ashley because I figured that they already have 5+ hours of video of me being interviewed, so maybe we can cut to the chase a bit. Today they sent me a text about a possible Office/Operations Manager position for a real estate team with offices in Houston, Galveston, and Austin. They need someone who can work remotely but also travel between offices when needed. It also pays $10-22k more than I was just making. I have an appointment to speak to the recruiter about it in more detail later on today, so we'll see.

  10. Well we finally had a victory today. Q tried out for the older team and it turned out to be a really good fit. The coach is very experienced AND good with kids. He has coached at very high levels and chose to work with this age group because he wanted to work on fundamentals. He loved Q's energy and her skill level. I also noticed her fitness took a dip after she got COVID and in recent weeks it has finally returned. She happily accepted the spot on the team and really liked the other girls, who were also very friendly. At this point they are done at the end of March so the coach said he would

  11. Just like last season, Ms. Spam has a solid final week and slips into 2nd place. It looks like I had a 3 peat. I was hoping to pass the torch this season, but some bad luck for some and good for others just made it happen. Thanks everyone for hangin' in there for the entire season! Week 18 Results Ms. Spam = 9-7 Gamevet = 8-8 Darth Krawlie = 8-8 Metropolis = 7-9 Jacen123 = 6-10 2021 Season pick results Gamevet = 180-91 Ms. Spam = 170-101 Metropolis = 169-102 Jacen123 = 163-108 Krawlie = 162-109

  13. Besides Silver's line about being coked up and torturing a teen for laughs, I forgot to mention the other standout line from this season that was a wink to the audience about KK3. After Silver goes with Kreese to Miyagi-do to show Daniel he's back, Daniel gives Johnny the rundown of KK3's plot offscreen to catch him up on who Silver is and the history between him and Daniel. Johnny's first words to Daniel are something like, "Wait a minute...you're telling me they let you into the final of the tournament just because you were defending champion???"

  14. Our company was calling people like that out in the forms to apply for a religious exemption. It went something like this: 1. What are your grounds for objection to the vaccine? 2. Have you ever had any of the following vaccines over the age of 18 (list of vaccines that also use fetal stem cell lines)? It was great. So I think what Spam is telling me is that I should respond to the email sent to me today before they announced moving to virtual learning until after MLK day that they are beginning a recorder unit for 4th grade that I object to my daughter playing recorder on

  15. Another "ok" episode. Some cool moments. The Tuksen tribe being destroyed like that was a surprise. Some cool shots of the desert. Those speeder bikes just look weird and the chase had no sense of speed to it, wasnt good. Also do we need to "rehabilitate" the Rancor monster too? Really though I just don't care what happens. Is Fett some sort of interesting character I care about? NOt at all. Mando had Baby Yoda who was just so damn adorable and such an amazing creation that if you didn't care what happened to him you had no heart. This show is lacking even that.

  17. Anger's also often a secondary emotion. She's going to have to deal with whatever feeling of inadequacy or shame led to the anger.

  18. Anger is a natural emotion, even though society tells us not to have it because it often makes others uncomfortable. That said, there's a difference between righteous anger and rage and cruelty. Your mistake did not equate with her level of rage.

  19. I agree wholeheartedly. I can understand her being angry and even hurt, but any type of successful relationship, be it romantic or not, has to have a big heaping of mercy or it’s just stupid to try. Someone who isn’t willing to offer mercy for a simple mistake early on is someone you don’t want.

  20. You may not know this from my posts on here but I;m a total sucker for Christmas. I've wanted to make this list for a while but never have had the chance until this year. I have nowhere else to post it because no one else would care, eventhough I know no one here cares either! Thats ok though! As you will be able to tell I feel for the most part Xmas songs need to be old, classic. They need to feel eternal as if they just are and always have been part of Christmas. I don't think any song on here was made after I was born. Certainly there are none that I remember when they debuted. If you like

  29. I don’t think the issue is heart, it’s a lack of motivation. What’s Boba even doing all this for? Why do we give a s**f if he becomes the crime lord? There hasn’t even a hint or anything there is any purpose to what he is doing.

  36. I'm more tired of post-credits scenes. It was a fun gimmick for a while but my bladder is 10+ years older and gets very mad at me for waiting around. Keep it to the mid credits, that's good enough.

  38. Haha Lincoln has 6 gates and you actually do get a real skybridge. So they're sort of legit. I think the smallest commercial U.S. airport I've ever flown into was College Station, TX, which had 2 gates and you just walked out to your turbo prop. I missed my flight because I missed my turn at 5:30AM. They wouldn't let me on the flight even though I saw them still boarding. Hate that craphole. I looked up the Ada airport. Turf runway, nice. That looks like the "airport" in my parents' hometown, which also has a grass runway. The little general aviation airport we have in Snohomish is a big

  39. Well there’s 0 gates at the Ada airport. Literally some dude in a lawn hair on a shed with binoculars. Durango has six gates but all Involve just running out to the plane on the runway. So define “gates”.
