Your power to inspire is awesome. 'This is all normal' is now my favorite home brewed meme!

Sorry about your loss Dok.


For my part I'm employed again! Went through a staffing agency. My position may or may not be permanent. I'm covering for a person out on indefinite medical leave. The job is checking and refilling machine coolant and some industrial clean up. Working the weekend shift 12hr days fri-sun. It will be nice to have the 4 days off and the job is pretty easy.

I kinda hope that the person I'm covering for doesn't come back because I could do this for a long time and go to online school on my days off. I feel little bad about hoping someone doesn't recover to my own gain, but only a little bit.

I want to vomit.  :vom:

If I understand this correctly they're basically leveraging the well-being of families and children to get that goddamn funding.

Everything is interdependent, even you.

A lone wolf is a starving wolf,
This goes for humans too.

Independence is a lie.

Help those Others in the world and you will save yourself.

Every tree that stands alone dies alone.

Roots must be interconnected for the branch to flower. You are no different.

Human differences are actually very precious variety.

Nature does not have your best interests at heart.

The heart of a fool says: 'I am all I need.'

The wise see their own security in the well-being of others.

Feed a starving person and the world loses nothing, but we all gain something precious.

Do not turn your back on Humanity. We are all you have.

The devil wants you to be alone so he can talk to you without distraction.

Give mutualism a chance.

Do not be deceived. This world rewards cooperation, not isolation.

Like hypothermia a cold heart needs other's warmth to survive.

Pity the one that does not need friends for Only The Dead Need No One.

Cooperation is the only survival tool you need.

Being alone is just fine, but it's like holding your breath. It can save your life in certain circumstances, but doing it to excess will kill you.

Believe me when I say that the world needs you too.

Sometimes the best thing to do is reach out no matter how difficult it is.

Pride would have you stand alone so that you will topple more readily.

The goodness in the world is like fresh water. If you absorb it it will sustain you. Rejecting it is truly folly.

Never assume you will get what you ask for, but it is worse to assume you won't.

Well I'm on the job hunting trail again. I've been through three jobs and each for various reasons has not worked out so far. Tomorrow I sign up with the staffing agencies in town. I'm also going to apply at an electronics recycling plant. I'm real good with a soldering iron and have a background in electronic assembly. I could just as easily sort and disassemble stuff.

On a personal note things are still going very well with me and my GF! She's been very understanding of my troubles, and is just an awesome person in general.

My Phablet died. All of my interactions here and on Facebook are going to be through a cheap phone. I do intend to participate more though. As soon as I have stable work I may even be able to help fund some projects. For some reason I can't seem to quit discordia, so I might as well get to participating!

That was an extreme exaggeration, which has been a thing in these parts for a very long time from what I know. Apologies that I wasnít entirely clear that that wasnít a literal statement of my beliefs.

EDIT: I am genuinely pretty alarmed that this was mistaken for a serious statement, thinking it over. I cannot understand how the mistake was made, considering that itís completely inconsistent with all of the values outlined in the post itself and with those Iíve espoused prior. The only sort of person who could seriously say such a thing is an absolute monster by any sane standards.

I canít believe I have to say this but, uh, I DONíT SUPPORT GENOCIDE. Christ.

There's maybe three newsfeed worthy statements here. Well done!

Human rights expo a smashing success. China to lead expansion of humanitarian aid to SE Asia. North and South Korea reconciliation well under way. Tibet free to be as weird as it wants. Hong Kong declared an independent state, signs trade pact bridging the Eastern and Western economic spheres. Overall a glorious 2018!

Glad to hear from you, WizJo!

WizJo... I like that. Lately I've been thinking of myself as Joebot, the multifunctional love robot. Joebot can do most anything for hours on end if properly fueled and maintained.

For writing purposes I go with T.W. Joseph.

Been working 2nd shift 10 hour nights and it's exhausting and eating away at my time for here and most everything else. It will pay the bills though. I'm stamping out metal parts in a press shop. Last night I helped do 2500 wheel wells. My hands are adapting to the repetitive motion and my feet are made of leather so I'm actually not all that uncomfortable. I'm way behind on reading stuff here so I'll be picking through the threads piecemeal when I can. Just wanted you folks to know I'm doing ok and that I will still be around here from time to time. As a temp I'm not allowed overtime so I have Fridays off. That's probably when I'll be most involved here.

I'm spending most weekends with my GF! I'm pleased to say that I have a pretty great relationship going. It's done wonders for my mental outlook and motivation. It's nice to have someone to love again.

Glad to hear things have stabilized. I was worried about you.

I mean, the Doktor still hates you and prays nightly for an asteroid, but I was still worried.
Thanks for your concern man. I'm finally getting out of my long depression. I have to still take a bunch of meds, but it has worked pretty well and I'm back to living a life again. I'm hoping that my creative spark comes back soon. I want to tell tales and get my rant on. Hopefully with my change in outlook and a little encouragement I will be back on the horse in no time. My girl really likes the "Wizard" tales I've told her. I just have to get them written down. One step at a time.
