Juice Bar (Hangout / Guild Chat)


Recommended Posts

Welcome to the new challenge!

 

The Juice Bar is here again, with fresh new recipes, and is a place for fellow rebels to hang out, talk, ask and give advice, talk about interesting things and support each other! Talk about whether or not you will be moving to other guilds, or why you've come back, or why you've come to NerdFitness for the first time. 

Feel free to make yourselves comfortable in the Juice Bar, show us your best gif, and welcome to the new challenge and this community!

 

Image result for hello gif

 

I'm going to try something new - but here's a quick challenge for ya'll! 

1) Say hi

2) Post a gif (your favourite, a hello, or something else)

3) Tell us who your favourite hero is and why (fictional or not)

 

** For any new people, don't hesitate to ask me or anyone for assistance. If you want specific Nerd Fitness advice, try and talk to someone with 500+ posts under their name. If you want their attention, ask in this thread (or their thread), PM them (click on their name and click message), or @ tag them in the thread.

Obligatory new challenge gif!

 

Hi errbody. I'm Flea. And I'm more than happy to answer questions and such if you have them. 

 

I'm gonna say my favorite (fictional) hero is Dean Winchester from Supernatural. But I'm gonna hold off on saying why for now, because the season finale was last week and there are still too many feels happening.

I searched pokemon gifs because there are so many good ones and this popped up. I have no idea what's going on here but Pikachu is clearly giving it his all... whatever it is. 

 

Hi! I'm Wobbegong, and I'll be around. 

 

My favorite hero... there are so many great ones, how can I choose? I've now been sitting here thinking about it for ten minutes, and I still can't narrow it down much, so I'll just stick with my theme here and say it's Ash Ketchum. I haven't really thought about him in a while, but he's everything a hero ought to be, right? Earnest yet snarky, Ash is a tremendously awful pokemon trainer with delusions of grandeur. He gets by on luck and the goodwill of others, and manages not to cause too much damage to local infrastructure in the process. Yeah... that's real hero material right there.

Hey all.

So I don't know where to find the cool gifs, I am doing good to find pictures. Anyway, Favorite hero of all time has to be Dana Scully. That character did so much to influence who I became... And while I never did get the medical degree, I did become a red head. I am sure that counts. *smirk* In the face of everything she had to do and deal with, she just did. Did she melt, yeah but she picked herself up and went on. So yeah. Hi all

1) Hi.

 

2) Couldn't think of a favorite gif, so I just searched my favorite movie and found this gem:

3) Daredevil because he's fucking awesome.

Hello fellow Rebel questers. You want a gif, eh? Despite being from the age of gifs, I have never actually posted one, so hopefully I do this right.

xUySTMPTqceh0JkPrW.gif

Haha! I think I figured it out. Seriously, how did a take a year of Web Design back in high school and never learned about these things, even though gifs were popular at the time? Oh well.

Anyway, as for my hero, I am going to go with my real-life hero/inspirational historical person: Leonardo de Vinci. I find his story so inspiring. He could not train to go into the regular work force because he was an illegitimate child, so his father got him an apprenticeship with a painter. Not only did he make the best of his circumstances and because one of the most remembered painters in history, he also pursued his intellectual passion and made major contributions to the fields of biology, physics, botany, and anatomy. I am both an intellectual and a creative, so he has been an inspiration to stick to both instead of letting people tell me I just need to be one or the other. When people told me I was too smart and was wasting my abilities being a vocal performance major in college, I stuck to it anyway. When academic/intellectual expectations were low for performance majors, I bucked the trend and did as well in my science and humanity courses as I did in my music courses. You can be both, don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. Hybrids are awesome...can you see why I am a Rebel?

Hello!  I'm super extra new here, but y'all seem cool.  This will be my first Challenge.  So here's this:

 

giphy.gif

 

Can't go wrong with a classic.  :-)

 

Picking a hero is harder.  There are different things I admire about different people... For today I'm going to say Theodore Roosevelt.  His speech on the Strenuous Life is often in the back of my mind, and spurs me on when I'm feeling lazy.  Here's a quote from it that will give you the tone, if you're not familiar with it - 

 "Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."

It's a good read.  https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Strenuous_Life

Okay. Did one of y'all new folks tag your thread "newbie" and everyone else just followed suit? Or is there a GL in the shadows tagging threads for people? I'm glad it's happening either way, but if there's a benevolent ghost lurking here I'd like to say hi.

I tagged mine because I saw someone else had done theirs.  I'm a follower, like a sheep.  ;-)

In this case it's totally a good thing, because now everyone can find the new folks! (Also I'm impressed because I still haven't figured out how to get those tags to happen, as opposed to blue ones. I should pay more attention.)

Hey everybody, I started a PVP challenge that I think many would enjoy. It is called NerdHammer - Age of Darkness

 

If you like tabletop strategy games like warhammer, or have ever played a game like risk its something you'll like! You get to play as any fantasy faction you can think of. Warriors of chaos from warhammer 40k, the troopers from star wars, or even the autobots!

 

By exercising you will earn resources to recruit your forces, and throughout the challenge move to control the most of the board and be the ruler of the world of Nerdhammer! 

 

On top of all these awesome things you get the chance to meet awesome people from other guilds, and do some creative writing (that is completely optional but fun)! Come stop in and say hi!

I picked this gif because - I'm going to continue to kick ass and make progress.  And I can't wait to see WW next weekend (yes, I have tix - the first movie I've seen on opening weekend in a LOOOOONG time - but it's the 11:30am showing because I want to avoid as much crowd madness as possible LOL).

I will pretty much disappear from 6/9 - 6/18 for "vacation".  First up is a cigar event in NC that hubby goes to every year (I don't normally, but his normal cigar buddy can't make it this year so I'm going to use his ticket - and get hubby more cigars LOL).  Then we're heading to Florida to inter his father's ashes and start the paperwork to take care of the property down there so we can sell it, check on said property and peek in the shipping container sitting on the property and see if anything is salvageable.  We may be spending the week tossing a bunch of stuff into a dumpster.  So as a vacation - that part is going to be emotional and pretty much suck.

So my goals pretty much reflect - keep doing what's working - we'll start to get more serious after the break.  I need to think of my dietary changes as being "this is the way I eat now" - and keep that up even on the road - even with hubby (which is harder because the man will not eat a vegetable to save his life).

Hi! I'm new. And feeling all like this:

(I will never not love this gif.)

Favorite hero? Honestly any hero from the Avatar: The Last Airbender 'verse, but right now specifically Toph, which is why ... well, the username and everything.  She's heroic to me because she has a lot of disadvantages in life, but she turns them into strengths and becomes literally the BEST at what she does. Her apparent weakness becomes her greatest strength, just because she chooses not to let her weakness define her. "Rock" on.
