  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. 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

  5. Here's the thing though. This isn't Vader's story. Vader had six movies to tell the story you're talking about, It's been done. It's established. This story is Obi-Wan's. As much as a big character as he is in the saga, he only has a few big moments as a character. He is meant to be the baseline Jedi so that we can see how Anakin, and then Luke, differ on their own paths to become Jedi. Obi-Wan is a central character to Star Wars, but he has always been a supporting one. This show is the reverse. We have gotten more out of him, on a human personal level, in these three episodes than we di

  6. All right, so, I officially gave notice at my job. Last day is May 13th. My boss asked me to hold off talking about it for now, even though I already told my two teammates, but they won't rat me out. I'm a little jittery right now and I'm not sure why, but it FEELS SO FUCKING GOOD. Such a massive relief to finally be leaving this place. Not that it was all bad, of course, but this has been long overdue. And for those of you that don't know (pretty much anyone who wasn't in the Zoom a month ago), the reason I'm quitting is thanks to the lovely Destiny Skywalker and her husband, I got a job

  7. The kid had a 50 page IEP coming in and has been in a full behavior support facility since the first grade. He has significant OCD and when it kicks in (and peer relationships is the trigger) it manifests itself as EXTREME opposition defiance disorder. This is the first school where he has ever had friends and they were having conflict. Since he has never had friends, he has never had to deal with friend conflict. So his solution, just like boys with crushes on girls, was to harass them. So me intervening (he was throwing kethup packets at them at lunch) triggered his ODD. He came ba

  9. In a lot of ways, we’re like any other group of old friends - we really like each other, but we frequently show it through jokes and insults. So let’s take a thread where we can speak positively about others and honor them. I intend to post about many people, but I’m going to start with Cerina: As someone who struggles with organization, I really respect your organizational skills, and how they allow you to do so much. You’re a homeschooling mom who runs her own business and is the longest running regularly active admin on this site (JA and Mandard not being regularly active), and yo

  11. I don’t cuss, so this is really extreme: fuck them. If they think you’re the bad guy, then they either innocently don’t know what’s going on or they’re molester protecting pieces of shit and you’re better off without them. This is black and white, good and evil stuff. And if they want to choose to be evil, that’s not on you.

  12. Between her and your mom you’ve been dealt some harsh blows, and have been focused so much on other people. Please take the next very long indeterminate amount of time to focus on self care and self care only.

  15. I have never gone to a High School Reunion, in part because there is no possibility of meeting the cast of Romy & Michelle, but really because ugh. I have bumped into people from High School however. One ex-classmate was amazed how my wife and I were still together when we had started dating at 15 years old. They asked, “How do you do it?” I quickly responded with, “Mostly from behind.”

  18. I really look up to you in a lot of ways. The way you just don’t seem to give a crap about how people might see your hilarious insanity to the way you manage to share the struggles and joy in parenting at the same time. Based on what you share, you’re the type of dad I want to be, so Krawlie’s comment was super honoring to me. Krawlie has a lot of great qualities, but his best is that he’s hilarious and irreverent and somehow caring all at the same time. Somehow he manages to say stuff that would be horrible coming from other people, but it comes across completely different from him. It’s

  21. Some of you may have seen in the job bitching thread last week where I said that my old boss's old team lead, Mimi, called me to get permission to share my number and also to tell me that I should go into business for myself. Mimi's suggestion surprised me, but it's not like I haven't let the idea live rent-free in the back of my mind for years anyway. Within 2 days of her phone call, I'd set 2 appointments with real estate agents who want my help. It's been a whirlwind of anxiety and excitement and downright fear. But I'm going to do this. I'm going to start my own company helping real

  22. 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

  24. I think the people like that are the most afraid. They're afraid of anything being slightly outside the norm. Afraid of having to make hard choices and deal with things not being as expected. We're all struggling with life no longer being what we considered normal, but these are people who are SO wrapped up in what they viewed as normal that they can't deal with anything even slightly outside of that, let alone a global pandemic. Life must be ordered the way they want it, or it's wrong and evil. And they have the temerity to call mask wearers cowards.

  25. 1st house from this weekend did not go pending, which was a shock. We're going to go look at it again tomorrow. I'm more willing to consider knocking out walls and doing upgrades if I don't have to engage in a bidding war to win it.

  26. Oh hey guys, for any of you who don't follow me on Facebook or get my annoying texts at 2 AM, I totally finished this. After working on it off and on for 2 decades, I finally finished my associates degree. I'm glad that's over. Now I can devote my time over the next 2 decades to getting a bachelors. Maybe.

  28. Tonight at dinner, Eliza, my five year old, wanted a scary campfire story. Louis, the 8 year old, wanted a Star Wars story. So I ripped off your Star Wars slasher movie idea and told a story of Rebels crash landed on a planet being hunted by Vader. I just got super dad points for having that idea ready to go.

  29. What a time machine this is! I hope all is well in these strange times! I did most of my posting in my late teens and early 20s in the wrestling forum & lando, but started out in Star Wars. I'm 34 , married , and weirder than ever now. This place woke me up as kid to how screwed up with world can and would be. This place def. helped make me who I am today! Cheers.

  30. Wow. I forgot about this thread. I was getting panicky about work recently and looked it up to remind myself I have shit going on, then got busy. So since this was last updated... the two jobs I was on up above, both were finished and paid out. The Pilot didn't get set up, cause as I warned the, the concept was a better feature than a TV show. They just made me an offer to rewrite it as a movie, and we're negotiating with them. The other job was the video game Devil In Me from Supermassive, which comes out this fall. In 2021 I jumped onto a new horror anthology show for Blumho

  34. I CAN'T WAIT to quit my job. Still a week and a half/two weeks to go before I can give notice, but I'm so looking forward to it. They don't have a clue and it's hilarious because they're giving me a hard time and changing procedures and all sorts of annoying stuff. I don't even care if they think it's BECAUSE of those things, I'm just so excited to see my boss's big dumb face on Zoom when I tell him.

  37. I think that you’re as much one of us as anyone who has been here nonstop. The way you hopped in was awesome, and you’re an awesome guy. Tank/Driver is also a hell of a good guy. We’re polar opposites in most ways, but he’s always super respectful and interested in hearing my input. I also know people who have some success in more niche fields and they’re insufferable. And while it’s fun to give Tank crap about being a Hollywood douchebag, in reality I think he’s worked against that to the point that he’s probably less of one than when he first started the journey to where he is -

  38. Krawlie and Icy are 2 of my most favorite people in the world. At this point in life, they're the only friends I have that I consistently rely on for emotional support, practical advice, and general entertainment. If I ever win the lottery, I'm buying us a commune to live on with our families.

  40. Oh yes! Trevor accepted a position last week. Auto mechanic at a small family-owned shop nearby. He's excited because he likes playing around in engines and getting dirty, and apparently with the crazy growth in this part of town, the shop has been getting a LOT of high end vehicles lately.

  41. Got the job! Salary isn't as high as I was hoping, but I will be getting bonuses on each transaction we close, so it could still wind up being significantly more money in the end. I did talk her into a salary versus hourly position and unlimited PTO. So that's good.

  42. 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
