    That's awesome!  I did that with an electric motor repair company.  Took it from a historical max of $750k to $2M through workforce efficiencies and inventory controls, within a year. Then the boss fired me because I said "I might be moving to SC in the next year" and because the tax credits for hiring veterans were up (only good for the first year).  I hope you get to keep proving they got the right person for the job.  That's an awesome turnaround.  I couldn't have done that with a restaurant!

    After spending a few months nailing down the specifics of running a lab from the support staff side of things, I finally jumped back in the saddle (of genetics research). This is one reason that I've been able to commit like... two hours a week for the last month. My new projects are crazy interesting and I'll talk someone's ear off given the chance.

    A few of you who know me know that I left my PhD program about half a year ago after some very difficult decisions, and struggled for awhile in terms of my post-grad school identity and career as a result (I spent WAY too long in a bad setting, and I had to accept that there wasn't a path forward with what I was doing). I was pretty set on going into industry and leaving academia before I stumbled into a position I couldn't pass up, and now here I am at a new (better) university, in a job that affords me some time to tinker with things, while also saving me from the nightmare of doctoral-track academia. And it pays pretty darn well.

    The only downside has been that it's (two) biophysics labs, and I am trash at physics. It's a steep learning curve but it's worth it so far.

    Don't ask her how much she spent, it'll make her (and you, and me, and probably some other people) cry.

    Well, probably a lot less than what some people spend on promotions each month but still quite a bit.

    She is a Dollfie Dream from Volks. (Which is their there anime style/proportioned dolls). With a customised DH007 head.

    There is also SmartDoll who do a similiar anime style but very different. You can get hardrives and charge parts placed in them so they have a use other than be pretty.

    I played from 2.0 (ARR) until Heavensward. Was at max item level when Heavensward dropped, then I stopped playing due to moving half way around the world.

    Got some pretty and expensive headphones today for my birthday a day late (shipping company's fault) from my favorite person.  :o So freaking excited, never thought I'd get them because of the cost. It was even more special because none of my relatives even bothered calling, not even my mom.

    Being from Cambridge the Boat Race has been a huge thing for me for years. About 3 years ago my mate Ed became the women's boat race crew's S&C coach. Ed passed away last year, so watching today's race was a little emotional. Not only did Cambridge win for the first time in 5 years, but they smashed the course record by over a minute, beating the time set by the men's team last year. Immensely proud of what Ed has helped to achieve with this team.

    It'll rebound in a week, dude. Goldman Sachs are manipulating prices, likely to double down or take advantage of a short term put position, since they already have a long position.

    Enjoying some much needed family time. I'm home saying goodbye to my great uncle, his heart is failing and he wanted to call us all together.  It is a sad occasion but his point was that we need to come together and enjoy the company of friends and family more often. 

    I spent the afternoon geocaching with my brother (getting covered in mud and nearly falling into the swollen river) we then went for ice cream and a long chat. That evening I went out with my sister, her husband, his parents, my brother, and my niece to play pool and listen to music. 

    Today were celebrating an uncle's birthday together at my grandparents' house. Later I'll go to dinner and for a walk with my best friend's family. 

    For the last three years I've lived around 9 hours from my family and it has changed me. I have improved in many ways, I'm more self reliant, more sure of myself. It has also changed me in negative ways, I have less patience, I don't listen as well. 

    Family and friends are very important to me, in some ways it feels as if I'm currently living in an affection desert. I'm friendly, I have friends, but I don't have the intense joys (and rarely miseries) of being near family. 

    Thaumas cannot move here fast enough. 
     yes, sir.
