Just a place to dump random thoughts for any of you guys that want to partake that doesn't come across as weird in the shoutbox. Keep it peaceful.

 

I used to watch a lot of Dog the Bounty Hunter as my trashy reality tv stuff in the mid 2000s and I just found out that his wife died of cancer today. I feel kind of sad even though I have no connection to these people and Dog is a pretty rough personality... cancer sucks though.

Just took this picture of Fort Pulaski while running a drone mission to map it. Pretty proud of it.

It was pretty awesome, we got to stay after the Fort closed and ran a mission to map the entirety of the site with Lidar along with some random missions to take pictures and video of the fort.

That sounds pretty awesome! The history buff in me would love that. Anytime we go on vacation I take a historical detour one day and my wife puts up with it lol

I stopped buying games because I just play them for an hour, then quit and play Dota instead. I should probably get FM 19 though.

Nice been making a conscious effort to play all the ones I’ve bought. Already have plays some FM 19 (MLS roster rules are confusing and I’m not good), Turmoil (fun), Simple Planes (meh), Poly Bridge (Meh), Train Valley (alright), Empire TV Tycoon (Fun), Kindergarten (Meh). It’s hit or miss but I’m actually playing them so that’s an improvement. I look at it like most are cheaper than a movie ticket so if I get a couple hours out of them it’s a win

I bought Stellaris right when it came out and enjoyed it but haven’t played much since but I think it’s worth its price

I dont know if this is necessarily appropriate for me to say but its hilarious, I was watching Soluna's above instrumental video, your post popped up, clicked it, and as I viewed "I came out as bi" the 1812 Overture starts blasting. Perfect timing. I'm weak.

 

If you come out to any more friends pls blast 1812 Overture. (Also hope they took it nicely, a guy I went to high school with lost all of his hs friends because he came out as gay right after graduation, and they wanted nothing to do with him after that. I know hes doing alright for himself now, but thats still really shitty.)

Good for you! Be who you want to be, if it doesn't directly affect others, and don't let anyone tell you you're wrong for it.

Being able to be public about your identity is a very empowering feeling. I’m personally proud of you for taking this step, and I wanna second what Soluna said. Be who you want be to be and be proud of that, and don’t let anyone try to knock you down from that.

Seeing this made me want to say part of what I said in the 'how are you doing' thread. I hope it went well and that your friends supported you. Congrats on having the weight off your shoulders. I know the feeling and it's really nice.

Schedule's changed, not gone for 5 weeks straight... this time.  New Jersey (Joint Base Dix-McGuire) is off my schedule, so I get a week at home. 

Then Colchester, VT is happening (anyone know anything about Vermont?  I have no clue, never been)

Followed by a week in Mississippi. 

Then the Kansas trip immediately after changed to two weeks in Wichita - although that's in the air. 

That's followed by a week in Charlotte.

 

So my five-week stretch might have just been delayed.

 

In non-work things I'm trying to sell my house in North Carolina.  I have a potential buyer, but they're an investment firm so we'll see if they follow through once they look at it.  Because they've been interested I haven't done any work to get the place spruced up, and other potential buyers have been turned off - my last tenants apparently fucking smoked like chimneys in the house and decided they liked having a jungle in the backyard.

If these guys fall through I'm probably gonna have to have about $8000 in work done to get the house back in good shape.
