  1. Reason #18 why I LOVE looking for a job: The job listing states that SLP-A certification is required (or that the applicant is actively working toward it). ...That certification isn't even available until fall of this year... Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  2. Well, explosions are pretty awesome. Especially the ones that make stunt doubles fling themselves across the room, or that have the cars blow up for literally no reason. Uh...I guess you won't have to worry about job security? Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  3. Huh. Well, that's a shame. I do like to see what shenanigans Past Me gets up to sometimes. She doesn't even have to be present to cause mischief! Well, I mean, why not? Any excuse to stage an epic rescue/fight/chase scene involving motorcycles and bladed melee weapon should be sufficient! Don't forget to throw in a few random explosions, for good measure. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  4. Okay, now I'm super curious which thread this was. All the threads I used to follow got unfollowed at one point (or possibly several), so I don't really keep track of old content anymore. Yes...bake the cookies...the grandmas compel you! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  5. Huh. Well, the Red Cross just emailed me my blood type, and I was a bit surprised at the result, since it's one of the high-demand ones. I then realized that this means that they are probably going to call me every two months for the rest of forever asking me to donate. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  6. 17 out of 24, but I was rushing a bit. It was indeed harder than expected, lol. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  7. Dunno if I'm qualified to answer, but I've been cosplaying as a normal person for awhile now, so at least I can say how I manage. Getting some alone time is absolutely vital, even if it's only 20 minutes at a time, though the longer the better. I mean, I love MrBoot to distraction, but I'm only able to mentally relax 100% completely when I'm by myself. But also for me, weird as it sounds, doing social stuff more sort of helps even though it's often hard. I love how I feel the week or so after coming back from a con, it's almost like my social boundaries have been pushed out so much that for those few days I feel absolutely fearless, like I can go to the store with practically no anxiety. But over time it inevitably closes back in, so I've learned to expect that now. I'm very concerned about when I'm able to rejoin society in 3D space again. Not only am I out of practice, but I've gotten to where even virtual social stuff is hard. As for more practical solutions, perhaps a Do Not Disturb sign to put up outside your workspace when you need a mental/social break? I've also found escaping to the bathroom to be super helpful when it gets to be too much; I can take off my social face for a few minutes and think about something mentally relaxing (for me it tends to be orderly stuff, like sudoku or arranging colors) as a mini-recharge. I know your difficulties are different from mine, and none of my solutions may work, but I thought I'd share in case something helps. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  8. Mmm, new thread, how lovely! Seems like a fine place to announce this: That there be the screen announcing my final exam results for my Medical Coding program! Yes, the same one I've been working on for the past mumble years. The one that should have only taken a year. But! It's finally done! I'm freeeeee~! Which means a whole lotta this is going to be happening: Anticipation of playing this game, which I have been waiting YEARS for, is all that kept me going the past few months, lol. If y'all don't see me around much for the next week or so, this is why. Huzzah! --OneBoot
  9. Clean-up on aisle 1K! I repeat, clean-up on aisle 1K, please! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  10. Eh, probably not, but I figured it was worth a try anyways. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  11. Ah. Well, that would explain the unusual concentration of vineyards here. There's even a shiny new building near the university, completed last year, devoted entirely to "wine science." Hmm...now I get to worry about what potential instructions I was given. So far, they mostly seem to include unsuccessfully ignoring household chores and growing leafy things in the backyard, so I'm probably safe. There is a persistent patch of Oregon grape in the far corner of the backyard that has stubbornly resisted all attempts to eliminate it, however.... Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  12. As a CA native, I have also heard this, though as of yet have been unable to confirm its accuracy, since I have been in deep cover for the past decade and a bit, wandering in the foreign lands of the west. I CAN confirm, however, that some entity or collection of dubious individuals have developed some form of bovine mind control (see: all of the "Happy California Cow" commercials). I suspect that said shady organization may have its sights on both Idaho and Texas, given the unsettling amount of cattle in both. I fear that inroads may also be ongoing in my state, as evidenced by the occasional elusive whiff of cows when the wind is just wrong. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  13. It is kinda, yeah, and the UI changes to look darker and spooky. But wow did my production rate ever go up! Also the news headlines start reflecting the change, and it's kind of hilarious. IIRC, you can reverse it if you don't like it, though it's been quite awhile since I last played. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
