  1. Didn’t really want to make a new topic so I thought I would post this here. After nearly 4 years of hard work, literal blood, sweat and tears, failure and self doubt, finally came the culmination of a black belt for my son a couple weeks ago. I’m soooo fucking proud of him. I can’t even describe how great it felt seeing his Instructor finally tie that black belt around him after years of taking him to karate 4 days a week and endless tournaments and wiping away all of the blood, tears and snot off him from sparring matches, wins, losses and failed tests.

  2. Lol! Speaking of babies shooting out (yeah right) , my wife gave birth to our son yesterday. I'm the highest on life I've ever been right now. I've probably had about 5 hours sleep in the last 48 but I feel amazing. My wife is all good and recovering amazingly. What a trip.

  3. My kid turned into a teenager and isn't a dick. My second movie, first theatrical release came out, as did the first TV show I worked on. I paid off almost all my debt. I secured two big deals that have booked me work through 2019. And I asked my gf of 8 years to marry me. (But I havent told my family so if we're friends on FB don't say anything).

  4. ... that I sort of wrote. But I can't say the name of it because I'm not the credited writer... actually there were about 6 writers, but the WGA cuts you off after awhile. It wasn't my idea, or my story, or even my dialog, I was purely a doctor on this one where they had two different scripts about a month out from shooting (no really, that happens) and I was the guy who figured out how to put them together. So those original writers get the credit... but you know-- I got paid, got in the union, and got to live in LONDON for a month next door to where Star Wars was filming. It HAS had a

  6. My big stressor is gone. I had applied for a job that I completely forgot about. They called me this week, I did a phone interview and got to meet with the hiring managers today. After the interview, they asked me to stick around while they talked. The came back offering me a better job than the one I had applied for, and $15,000 a year more than I make now, along with working 8-4:15 Monday-Friday. And my commute is going from 45 minutes down to 15 minutes. So I could work an hour over each day and still get home 2 hours earlier than my current job. I accepted it on the spot.

  7. I'll put the TL;DR version up front: I've lost weight! So my senior year of undergrad and first year of law school saw me balloon up in weight. I was pretty much sedentary, would eat out of boredom, all that jazz which generally leads to "not weighing what you used to." I had always been pretty fit, and active, right up until the point where I wasn't then it went down hill in a hurry. I've got pretty broad shoulders which helped, uh, shoulder the weight for a while but eventually not even that helped. I peaked out at around 230 probably (and look even heavier than that in some pictures). The

  14. So, the Girl Trip this year was mostly business for me since my parents' death. Mom passed on December 6th, so now, I own a condo in Florida. (Let me know if you want a cheap vacation in Seminole 4 miles from the beach). I haven't been through probate yet and now I have to file not only my own but my Mom's taxes. Anyway, I had their ashes scattered together from a little plane. My Dad had been a pilot in the Air Force and it was his wish-my Mom just wanted to be with him. They took pics and video for me and it was very emotional, unexpectedly. The whole package had to be biodegradabl

  15. By some of you no less!! But I believe that I've definitely decided to go back to school...again. I was doing rather well before Luke was born, but then I decided to take a break because newborn, but I never went back. That kid just turned 4. So I looked into it. I'm actually only 6 classes away from wrapping up an Associate of Arts. I need: a 1 hour phys ed class Texas Government a speech/communication class a creative arts class (art history, art/music/dance/theater appreciation) a language/philosophy/culture class (mostly lit, philosophy, and humanities classes) and another science

  18. Nightly stopped being a popculture discussion board years ago, it's down to just a handful of people who like talking to each other about movies and stuff. Trolls have all outed and flamed themselves out. None of us are interested in being an angst-filled anonymous place to yell at each other. So you come back 15 years later, still acting like a teenage edgelord, and you're mad that we're now just a small group of friends who are are adults talking about adult things, and it's our fault and we suck? Have you really run out of places to troll and you'd hoped we'd take your bait? If y

  22. Well, so far, the new dosages and new med is working. I don't have those dark episodes of depression, like I had a couple weeks ago. I am starting to feel back to normal, or what should be normal. I actually feel myself laughing more, too, which has to be a good sign. i also have been giving CBD hard candy a try, too. Just being able to share my experience here makes me feel better too, so thank you guys for bending an ear.

I don't say it enough to those I talk to but this place really did make quite the impact on my life for the better. You all helped me escape an abusive relationship when some of my family were continually pressuring me to stay, you all tolerated my ridiculous poorly drawn comics and silly board stories, and of course I met Link here. My life wouldn't be the same without this place, no correction the best parts of my life wouldn't be the same withou

  28. I got engaged to my girlfriend Megan on Sunday! I met Megan when we were short on girls on night at soccer and one of my friends brought her to sub (at the field pictured). I immediately had a crush on her and finally worked up the courage to ask her out several months later. We've spent a LOT of time at that stadium over the years, and she played collegiately there, so it was a fitting venue for the big day. Even though I haven't talked too much about my girlfriend on here, it still wouldn't feel quite right if I didn't let my Nightly family know about my big news. I've known (in varyi

  30. Dude, enough. That's a ****ty thing to say about somebody who has worked her ass off for decades. She's produced every classic Speilberg ever made. We get it, you're mad about the EU. Is there a way for you to be part of these conversations and contribute without using every single post to say the same thing? I say this as a friend, it's tired. Stop it. Your opinion is valid, but you're not having a conversation a lot of the time, you're just trolling over and over.

  31. I am definitely getting a promotion and a raise (separate from the annual performance based raise), most likely by the end of the year.

  32. At the day job: two raises and a promotion this year. At the part-time not-exactly-paying fun-time hobby-job: going on 4½ years now, 1400 entries and counting, still getting just enough virtual hamster pellets to feed my self-esteem and keep doing what I'm doing while devaluing the writing market for all those internet users who dream of making a living at it. Having an entry go kindasorta mini-viral last spring among a particular fan base was pretty gratifying, even though it was for deeply irritated reasons. Meanwhile, my son is now in his senior year of college and I am older than ever

  33. After nearly eight years of grad school, the University of Colorado decided to go ahead and give me a PhD. For those curious, my dissertation was on elementary classroom practices which are shown to increase the long-term academic achievement and involvement in STEM content areas of underrepresented populations in STEM. I was "promoted" to overseeing my school district's highly gifted student program. This was sold to me as a promotion despite not having a raise. There is a fun sentence in my contract reading "other administrative duties as needed". I guess leading a district-wide progra

  35. In the last year I've received three raises, had a role change, am considered part of department "management" (despite not having a job title change, which I'm fighting for), and have a sneaking suspicion I'm being groomed for a real promotion. It's all been kinda overwhelming since I've never been anything but a bottom of the barrel peon at work, but I think I'm adapting mostly pretty well. It's not much to brag about but it's something. Bragging feels uncomfortable anyway. I'm not doing this thread right.

  44. April-girl, we have a nearly identical back-story. The drugs, the abuse, and the abandonment. It's all there. Here's how I did it. My dad came back into my life by way of a random card made in his court-mandated rehab art class. I felt angry, sad, resentful-- all those things you mentioned. After all this time, he contacts me in the form of some lame homework assignment from druggie sleepover camp? **** that. Stuffed it in a drawer and stewed about it for months. Then came graduation, and a spiteful little bit of me wanted him to see how great I'd turned out all by myself. That I never n
