    Don't let the Falcons blowing a 21-3 lead distract you from the fact that the Golden State Warriors blew a 3-1 lead!
    3-1? But basketball games get points into the hundreds.

    To all the people getting jobs/raises/promotions: Congrats, that's super great!

    Also, Quisse, I love you very much, but. Good grief. You make it hard for us to be friends. :(

    Before University Job Expo: Drifting aimlessly around the Internet. Video games losing their taste. Daily supper of screaming souls no longer satisfying. Nearing the point where implosion from crushing ennui was imminent.

    After University Job Expo: Hope drifting in small, yet palpable waves. Infiltrated records of presence in at least twenty companies over the course of a week. Acquired four responses before the week ended. There are no words recordable in any human language that can express my elation at the positive report.

    Now, status report:

    Company 1 of 4: Bank. Took and passed their pre-employment exam today. Interview scheduled for next week.
    Company 2 of 4: Tech. Interview on Tuesday.
    Company 3 of 4: Anti-Virus. Threat Response Engineer exam on Wednesday.
    Company 4 of 4: Nokia. Programming exam on Saturday for myself and one of my less ancient siblings.
    Bonus: Won a Samsung Galaxy On7 from another company's Job Expo raffle. Claiming within the week.

    Sorry, meatbag.

    I already built a Dyson sphere. Also, it was far more productive to build it around your precious sun. Mmmm, energy. Though I suppose I'll build one around the Earth to harvest meatbag souls.

    Happy birthday @Keneanung !!!

    As a counterpoint to today's OOC rant, I have been in the hiring process for VIPKid which is an online ESL teaching program (contract) for about two weeks, and I found out today that I got the job. So I'm really excited I'll have some extra cash plus a job to take up the month that I don't work in the summer (yay school contracts). And the kids are freaking adorable and I really love teaching.

    Honestly, I would but I just maxed out my card on a trip.  Friendships like that are hard to come by.  Bravo Zulu for honoring him in such a way.  Much respect

    @Sobriquet have you ever heard of Run The Year? It's proving to be an insane community of people all trying in various forms to run 2017 miles in 2017. Might be something you're interested in!

    I'd not heard of that, no. Will have to take a look into it.. seems like a fair old way though, and knowing me I'd probably be looking at running 1500 miles in between Christmas and New Year..

    You can do it in a team of up to 4 people (and if you have mileage already accrued you can backdate the tracker.) It's a lot of fun if you have a friend or two to share the miles with (or race because competition is much more fun than cooperation.)

    Received a job offer for a new job out in Henderson, Colorado! I am wondering if there are any Colorado Achaeans that could give me advice on a potential move from Arizona? What are the cheaper/still safe areas to live in Colorado?

    Yes! Which is why I panicked when I saw Colorado's housing market. I'll be making enough money to live there, but I would definitely love to live in an area of Colorado much closer to Arizona's 200k for 2000-2700 sf range.

    can't even buy a studio in a bad neighborhood for that price in SoCal anymore.  

    I've been to Denver a few times, the downtown is gorgeous and so clean.  Also they have a really hot real estate market now, you should downsize to a 1500-1800 sq ft home there.  I love how homes have basements there, much man cave potential.
