Every 3 years works.....

New state, new career, on my own......life is fucking good really. Need hobbies, and ways to fill downtime in my new life so hopefully this shall help. Is anyone still around?

In the meantime here is a photo from my apartment window a few months ago:

Very very #latergram but never shared #myview #townsquare #winter #sunset #iowa

What a deal!

So to my friends who live in an area with any AMC branded movie theater:

I won 50 dollars worth of AMC gift cards at work....with the closest one being 30 min away.

Trying to sell them for 40 dollars....

Takers?

UK/EU Friends.....

Downton Abbey fans, anyone? Y/Y

Oh to be able to do this all day...

 Yep...it's a laptop in bed kinda day...sadly I have to work in 3 hours though.  Oh well...it will be return to laptop in bed when I get back home though.  I start  at the Fresh Market tomorrow, I am really really excited.  While I love working for U.S. Cellular, they changed some of our commission structure around...and that really makes me uneasy.  I know they are going to come out with something to make things better, but still I am very nervous about that.  Plus, while there are tons of opportunities for growth, it doesn't seem like much is open at the moment that really interests me.  FM, however, is planning to open over 100 new stores in the next 2 years.  That is incredible growth all across the country...I'd be ok with moving out west or to Florida or something.  
 
Last night was fun, hung out with the roommate, a couple guys from work/people we went to school with.  Drank a smidge too much.  After work today I have to run to wally world to grab a thermal shirt to wear under my polo at work.  Really excited to wear shorts tomorrow to work.  Yep, I know I  am a dork.  

Woot! New name!!

Still (kind-of) the same old me, but hoping to expand my thoughts more with a name change into my more day to day activities.  For the next couple days this is going to be undergoing some major construction, so please tell me what you think! 

101 in 1001 rough draft

Hey friends, please comment and see if I missed a number or if you think something should be put in another place. Special thanks to hefnersbunny who I got the idea and list template from.

The Mission:
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days. (In my case - December 2, 2011)

The Criteria:
Tasks must be specific (i.e., no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (i.e., represent some amount of work on my part).

Why 1001 Days?
Many people have created lists in the past - frequently simple goals such as New Year's resolutions. The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 Days (about 2.75 years) is a better period of time than a year, because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organizing and timing some tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities.

The listCollapse )

Progress

Hey all, I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Things have been a little quiet, so I thought I would post some stuff, maybe inspire some people.

Geeks workout too!Collapse )

Oh, hi stupid, have we met?

Last week.....

Me (to lady working the desk at my gym): I see the south building will be under yearly maintenance and will be closed next week, does this include the locker rooms?

Lady: No, it includes the pool, showers in the locker rooms, track, community room, basketball courts, and the all purpose gym.

Me: So we will still have access to the weights and cardio equipment

Lady: Yes

Me: And you said the showers in the locker rooms, but we can still use the locker rooms to change and lock our belongings?

Lady: Yes, it's just the showers

Me: Thank you...


Today....

Me: *notices the whole south building is roped off* I was told we would have access to the locker rooms even though everything else was shut down?

Different Lady: *while munching on funyuns* No, the entire south building is closed

Me: So we have nowhere to change or store our belongings?

Lady: You can use the bathroom one by the school age area and tumbling (read with all the kids around running in and out) Or change in the hall by the weight room....

Me: I am sorry, did you say change by the weight room, in the hall?

Lady: Yes

See you next week, I will just go run at the park...

Really? Anyhow, a spot of good news: I checked out my account info for World of Warcraft (not the game just my online info) Last log-in September 27, 2008. I really feel accomplished with something like this. If I was in AA I would get a one year chip. I kinda want to make one for myself anyway. Hooray for a more active and less sendeary lifestyle!
