  1. I'm going to be honest; I don't really like the fact that this isn't my first respawn post. But hey, if they didn't expect you to make mistakes, they wouldn't have programmed in a respawning mechanic, right? So, here I am again, starting at the basics of level 1. I still haven't quite found what works for me, but I have found things I love to do and want to get better at. Me and my preferences have changed since I've joined this site, and something I thought would never happen actually happened: I've mellowed out. Shock! But one thing hasn't changed; how much I love this place and its philosop
  2. Man, it's been a while! Glad to see you're still in the fight (no pun intended). Congratulations on your belt tests! With trying to heal your injury, they sound like they can get pretty difficult. Keep pushing, but don't push too hard. As for advice on your career options, I really don't have much experience to pull from. But I believe there's honestly no harm in trying to find another option. You still have to do what is best for you, professionally, and if it's been over a month on such a rocky foundation, don't feel too bad about trying to find something else for yo
  3. And sometimes, Zumbi will refuse to mop up, saying that it's good training. They crazy. Sorry to hear that you're going through such a rough patch, but I hope it gets better. Um also, where you live? I might accidentally be relatively close to you, depending (due to a "business trip").
  4. I don't think he meant listening as in a vocal conversation. Zumbi compares the game in the roda constantly to a conversation between two people; games where people are listening and responding to each other are much prettier and more fun to watch than a game where both players are consistently doing their own thing without listening/responding to their partner. I would take that as some high praise. Sorry you're going through a really rough patch, but at least the intensive sounded fun! Hope things get better soon.
  5. I have the same exact problem. I'd much rather do just about anything for anyone, but I might as well be trying to move a wall when it comes to doing things for myself. I'm still trying to find a workable solution to that issue. Otherwise, good work on being adaptable for this challenge. Sounds like you're on track with making things work out.
  6. Me neither. My father's side of the family use July 4th as a "reunion" of sorts. We have a picnic at my aunt's house, with open fields in the middle of nowhere in the mountains. And fireworks shenanigans. If we tried to fit into a restaurant, we'd take over the place.
  7. OMG your cabaça makes my OCD/perfectionism so incredibly happy. It looks so smooth and perfectly round. XD ... *thinks about phrase above and blocks path to gutter*
  8. Uhh, what day is it? [insert Jim Carrey's Riddler throwing up a stack money in the get-away van, exclaiming, "I LOST COUNT!" gif] - the Internet failed; the gif does not exist (but then again, I also just don't have the patience to find it). Macros have been a bit sporadic. I'll hit green numbers for a good solid string of days, then feel the need to break lose (or wake up without enough time to plan macros for the day), only to return to green numbers again after a day. Walking has been tough; I've been having issues with my sleep lately, so I've been uncharacteristica
  9. I agree there. I'm mainly using the scale for my coaching; they like to get a feel for what your daily fluctuations are so they can help adjust macros and such to better accommodate your activity levels and goals. The number and trend don't bother me emotionally/mentally like they used to, I'll admit. But it's still not something to rely on completely. I'd like to use measurements and photos to track progress, but I always end up forgetting to do those on a weekly/bi-weekly/monthly basis. -.- I honestly didn't think about it that way. His tendency to want to fix things us
  10. So, I've discovered/realized two huge reasons why cleaning the house (whether inside or outside) has become such a chore (when I usually never have issues with it). One, the house is filled with too much stuff. Purging/decluttering has been sizzling in the back burner of my brain for over a year now, so I'm not entirely surprised. The only decluttering I've done this past year has been four out of the seven closets in the house (and my clothes). They've yet to revert back to their original states (not so much luck with my clothes), but some of the stuff I pulled out of them to get
  11. Day 9 Macros: Check! Steps: Check! 9k. Class: Pass. Adulting: Check! Day 10 Macros: Almost. Only protein was low. Steps: Miss. 5.5k. Class: Pass. Adulting: Check! It really needs to stop raining. Both instructors are out of town this week (apparently Zumbi wasn't lying), so there hasn't been class to go to. I was going to take the Ranger Companion for a walk when I got home from work yesterday, but this is what it looked like outside when I walked out of the store (for emergency cleaning and dish washing supplies). While it's sunny t
  12. If he really wants his strawberries back...
  13. That sounds AWESOME. Enjoy dem strawberries! And now is the time I remember that I also have a copy of Trine 2 that I have yet to play...
  14. I'm still here, doing my thing! Day 5 Macros: Miss. Steps: Close! 6.5k. Class: Pass. Adulting: Check. Day 6 Macros: Check! Steps: Close again! 6.1k. Class: Pass. Adulting: Check! Day 7 Macros: Check! Steps: Miss. Not even 1k. Class: Pass. Adulting: Pass. Day 8 Macros: Check! Steps: Miss. 1.7k. Class: Pass. Adulting: Check! So yeah. Dentist. I was in and out of there in 30 minutes. I was surprised. Having had 7 teeth pulled during my younger years and only one cavity ever so far, that would be where the
  15. Day 4 Macros: Check! Steps: Check! 10.6k!! Class: Pass. Adulting: Check(ish). Yesterday was a mostly good day. Walked around and cleaned a lot at work, trying to set myself up to be in a good place before the 3.5 day weekend. Again, SO EASY to hit macros when you plan the day before. I dunno why I never thought to log my food the day before so I know I'm hitting the right numbers. No class though. I also got caught up in trying to restore my computer at home that I didn't have much time to do any cleaning other than dish rotation. My custom-built desktop stoppe
