  1. Question for those who have or have had outward genitals: do you have any opinions on or recommendations for crotch protection?
  2. Well, the one offer came back with a bit more money, but not quite enough to have some comfort after all the bills; so I turned it down. I did not apply to anything last week because during the previous week I was overwhelmed by the amount of phone calls and whatnot I was getting, and so I spent that time working on the project I'm volunteering for. I managed to get that bit done; submitted a pull request which was accepted! So I'm now putting that on my résumé as professional experience. The calls have tapered off and most outstanding prospects have withered, so I'm getting back o
  3. Put in my response to that job offer this morning. Nervous af
  4. So, here's the Earth I haven't accepted the offer yet, and I've been given an extension on it, though I asked for it Monday, followed up on Tuesday and only heard back today. :/ I'm gonna tell them that I can't take less than the regional average for the title, especially when their benefits package is so lame and I'm doing so well with other firms interviewing. Another company that gave me a FizzBuzz last weekend sent me a real challenge though I'd probably use the word 'ordeal'. They want me to build and host a web app that connects with an API to get weather data, bu
  5. Well, I haven't heard back from them regarding the extension at this point, so, I suppose tonight I'll draft up my terms/questions and send it to them tomorrow even though we are now past the deadline. However, I'm getting phone screens out the wazoo atm, so that's encouraging. However, mood-wise, I've been drifting into melancholy. The major factor is that I've been off my buproprion (antidepressant) for a week because I kept leaving the new bottle at the office, and my sleep has been wack as I keep waking at 4 (probably related to the baby, though I don't recall waki
  6. Oh, so that 'good news' turned out to be an offer: a low offer, but an offer.
  7. Ran Wednesday and Today. I ran without walking the first mile on Wed, and the first two kilometers today, without getting terribly winded. I was also told by Zombies Run! that I did the first two kilometers today in 10 minutes, which makes me feel fast. Did the code test for one of the Tuesday positions on Wednesday. Had my first on-site interview of this hunt on Wednesday. Met with an overly green and eager recruiter on Wednesday and applied to a position through him. Had a phone screen with a friend's company on Thursday. Did the coding challenge with the recruiter's application
  8. In a fit of ADHD hyperfocus (to the Finch's chagrin), I applied to four positions tonight. Because I'm seeking entry into the field (more or less), I'm banking on my generalist-ness at the moment, so cover letters are nearly identical with minor alterations to fit the position.
  9. Okay, some updates are due, I guess. I went for a run yesterday, even though it was threatening rain. (Actually, it did drizzle in the middle of it.) I got my 5k to 32 minutes, but that is by distance 1/3 walking after the first 1k. I may be in good shape for getting to a fully run 5k soon. No jobs applied to yet this week, but have that on-site interview tomorrow and a phone screen Thursday.
  10. GAH, I have an on-site interview for next week and augh. I mean, on one hand 'yea' but on the other I was warned away from this company by a recruiter and the salary is probably gonna be a pittance
  11. I do not have any strength training goals set up, though "Nice Arms" and "Thunder Thighs" are things on my long term goal list. A gym membership is off the table until I find new employment, our condo is a bit small for any meaningful bodyweight routine, and anything else is a bit too awkward to make it habit.
  12. @Kishi, @chemgeek: Our scuola has a built in system for dealing with these nosebreakers because being a sword fighting school, we tend to really attract them. Potential students are first required to take a taster class to go over some of the basics and to allow instructors to assess their skill and character, and once they're determined of being able to handle a weapon reasonably, have an invite to the guild extended to them. The minor nose-breakers will be allowed to take taster class after taster class until they mature enough in mindset to pass through or quit from frustration, but the mor
  13. I've hit some pretty decent life milestones in the past year: I became a father and I finished my Master's in Computer Science. I've been able to get through with the wonderful support of my wife and my therapist and probably a lot of people who had to deal with me at some point. However, spending the last two quarters at school and having an infant has definitely been at the cost of me keeping up with my physical needs: I'd run sporadically, and never very often; I'd stay up late while working on an assignment on top of whatever sleep deprivation I'd been getting with the wee bair
  14. Hey guise, I was thinking of coming back for this challenge now that I'm done with grad school and parenting is getting to be regular and that I have an amorphous by the end of the year date for my next skills test, which totally includes a written exam and a prize fight and what the hell am I doing oh dear me what's this new planning sheet why does it look likemoreworkthanbeforewhatamigettingmyselfintoaaauuurrrggghhh
