  1. Greetings all, I had a quick question. For the last couple months, I've been doing a lot of general fitness things, working out an hour 3 times a week, cleaning up my diet, trying to get a decent amount of sleep each night despite work, etc. Recently I've become engrossed in the masterpiece that is The Witcher 3 (I'm late to the party, I know), and I was wondering if any of you guys knew what NF class Geralt would fall under, if I wanted to point my plan in a direction that would get me as close to a Witcher as possible without the mutations haha. My guess was Ranger, cause of
  2. What's the purpose of working out blind? It seems interesting, but I feel like whatever you're doing - unless you're stationary the whole time - would be much more difficult without sight. But maybe that's just me haha
  3. Howdy. So, as the title said, I'm not sure which class I should pick to participate in the Challenge with (based on my goal(s)). To start off, as embarrassing as it is for me to admit, this is something like my sixth or seventh time in the past couple years trying to pick up the ball. Again. My first issue, which I know is really something that only I can fix, is my motivation to keep with it. I'm always really gung ho for the first week or so, and then I'll get a busy day at work and come home to errands, and have (seemingly) no time for a workout. I've previously gone with the Assass

  5. No, I'm not actually going there, but I'd like to. I just wanted to learn another language haha. I actually wanted to learn Russian, but German had more resources available. As for exposure, the only thing I've done is started listening to Rammstein. Like you said, it's increased my passive understanding. I've been able to pick up a few words before Duolingo taught them haha. Currently, I'm having trouble with pronouns and conjugation. I'd love to get to the point that I can read/listen to native speakers and actually understand what they're saying. I'm expecting dialect to be a big obstacle t
  6. Sorry about the dramatic topic title haha. I've just been trying to teach myself German, and was wondering if any of y'all knew any good resources. I've been going with Duolingo until I save up enough for Rosetta Stone. Anything in particular that you guys recommend?
  7. Yes. My situation made this way more fast paced than it should have been, so I've had maybe 2.5 weeks to arrange movement of mine and my wife's things to San Diego, and starting the process for an apartment before I go to school in Mississippi for a month, then get 2 days before I have to be in San Diego.
  8. I'm in the Navy, so my company isn't the most helpful for moving. They're just like, be here by this date, and its up to us to find out everything else. As for location, my orders say that my command is in Imperial Beach. My wife and I are just about polar opposites. She wants the full-on, in your face lifestyle of the city, and I want a more country, laid-back atmosphere
  9. Hey guys, I got told that I'm getting transferred to San Diego, CA aaaaalllllll the way from Groton, CT. Having never gone west of Chattanooga, TN, I know nothing of the wesy coast. My wife and I are trying to find an apartment (we won't be there until the end of March though) and set up a new housing budget to go with our recurring payments, and we don't know anyone from there or anything about the area, and u was hoping some of you guys could help out. Any recommendations on where to live? Estimated utility costs and the like? Traffic conditions during commuting hours? Honestly, any informat
  10. Maybe its because I'm so young, but that seems super old haha
  11. Yes, eventually. We both want kids, but me being the cynical person I am I don't think this is the kind of world to bring someone into... but regardless we both want a family. For the pension I've got a ways to go. 18 years to be exact. And there's just something about "starting" my life at 38 that doesn't quite appeal to me
  12. I've also got a passion for riding motorcycles, if that makes a difference
  13. Hey guys, For all of you guys that are well traveled or just feel like sharing experiences, where do you guys feel is the best place to live? Okay, that's probably not enough info haha. As some background, I'm 21 (in a day), recently married (6 months), and Active Duty in the U.S. Navy with about 4 years left on my current contract. I'm oroginally from the southern Appalachian region in western North Carolina/north Georgia, and my wife is from upstate New York about 45 min north of Albany. She wants to move south of the Mason-Dixon line, and I wouldn't mind coming back to my birthplace in the
  14. I'm definitely gonna take the advice on going back to things I was interested in. There's a pool and gym on base for me to use. I have issues finding good resources, that aren't financially intensive, to learn Russian. Its something I've looked into a couple of times, but I just could not find a good online source with no actual person to use as a learning source. There's also seasonal/location specific things I enjoy, like sailing and learning to shoot a bow and gun in order to start hunting. As for the idea of mastery, I would love to master everything I do. But at the same time, I've got th
  15. I definitely agree on the friends thing. I just don't really have anyone around me that's into anything that I am, or at least that I know of. Its a pretty niche-y, nerdy bunch I work with. And the couple of them that aren't nerdy are generally unpleasant to be around haha
