Had a six-month performance review today and basically got a big thumbs up. Captain told me one of my shipmates wrote that I was very easy to teach and everyone agrees I’m a smart guy. I didn’t get a raise, but he said he would put my name on the list the next time the money wagon makes its way around.
The review was a pretty casual affair and he made sure to let me know that they wanted me to be happy with where my career was going and to let them know if I wanted to make any changes as far as how or what I work on. I’m pretty content at the moment, though. I just want to learn more things.
It’s been two and a half months since I started working out again and I think I’m finally breaking 120 pounds now, up from a scraggly 108. I think this is roughly where I left off the last time I stopped working out some years ago. I am still a small thing.
thisisjesk asked: Aw :/ Minor illness but it still sucks I'd imagine. Why are you not sleeping enough? I AM, YES. Soon I shall level up! Last day of teaching is less than 20 days away, and then the exams shall begin. September is the month I'll be moving out of the nest though. I'm quite looking forward to the joys of independent living, are there any tips the wise DanDan can offer?
Not enough time to sleep. Pretty much.
Ah, life without parental guidance! What will your accommodations be like? If you have multiple roommates, your first order of business will be to defeat the largest one in physical combat to establish dominance. Repeat as necessary to maintain control over your domain.
In the case that you are not victorious, or are later overtaken at a disadvantage, it may be best to submit for the time being; recover for now, but do not dawdle as you will find it more difficult to gain alpha status the longer the current alpha holds supremacy (given that they are afforded more and higher quality resources). Usurp them at your earliest opportunity. Do not be averse to employing “dirty” tactics at this stage. Honor is a luxury only the strong can afford.
You can cook meals at home to save money and eat healthier at the same time.
Anyways, have fun with the exams and may Tymora be with you!
As of April Fools’ Day, I will have completed my six-month tenure at ye olde Motio and become eligible for 401k investing. So I spent a couple hours tonight doing some light research and setting up all that jazz…
