Yeah I have a humidifier running this time of the year. Good call on the chapped lips though, didn't really think of that connection. And I am usually stuffy, I think it's this apartment. Moving in a few months so I hope a new environment shows some changes. My allergies have been way worse since living here.

Sounds like my house. My parents got back from South America with colds, Mom further along. They passed it to Brandon. I think the fact that I was the only one going to work the whole time and I kept taking my vitamin C and calcium with zinc helped me mostly duck it.

Heh, funny that I fare better at work these days when it comes to exposure to germs. My first year doing this I averaged a cold a month.


Er, uh, fact: I'm obsessed with the opening number from "La La Land."

Sinus infections are common... my allergies are tailor fit to making life where I live miserable. My nose is stuffed 99% of the time. Humidifier is broken. And due to my back problems I can *only* sleep on my back. So yeah... post nasal drip is my arch enemy. Going to work on the chapped lips though, that is something new for me.

I'm hoping to kick this thing soon... I actually called off work today because of how bad the congestion and coughing were.

Negative. I actually know a COUPLE people from the general Acmlm community by virtue of twitch and game development stuff, but nobody from here specifically. I'm honestly surprised I remembered my password.

Here's a random fact about myself:

I'm an avid baseball fan, and almost always willing to talk about any aspect of it, whether it is major league baseball, minor league baseball, college baseball, or about history in general. In my spare time, I write for a Red Sox blog named "Over the Monster" under a username that is different from the one I use on forums.

I'm genuinely concerned and at times terrified for the way this country is going, but I have so freaking much going on in my life to distract me, at least momentarily.

Mom is cancer-free!!!

First: YAY!!!

Second: I am 100% with you on feeling that way. I don't even know what reality I am living in anymore.

Random fact: the students I had when doing student teaching are now in their junior year of high school.

Heh, I went through a realization like that recently. This girl I went to school with from elementary all the way through high school ended up graduating 8 months pregnant. I suddenly was thinking about how her child would be a teenager now.

Another girl I knew who gave birth when we were freshmen would have one that's going to be old enough to vote soon.


Fact: I'm pretty sure I have an addiction to shopping on Amazon.

Amazon does that... I have to say though I continue to be really disappointed with their Prime Video selection. Even when I look up bad B-grade movies or actors, etc, I never really find anything good I haven't seen yet. Maybe I'll finally cave and get Netflix someday.

Do you have any nieces or nephews? Now that's when time starts getting really weird... every time I see my family and sister my nephew looks like a different kid.

I technically don't, being an only child, but my cousin started having kids when I was 10 and now they're in college. Yup, I watched them grow up, though they live on the other end of the state and only see them occasionally.

Brandon's got a niece and a nephew (and possibly one more, we're not sure yet. Whenever the paternity test gets done. *shrug*) The first two live up in Washington, but they'll officially by my niece and nephew after the wedding.


As for Prime, the only thing worthwhile is "The Man in the High Castle." Otherwise I just reap the benefits of free two-day shipping.


Random fact: My dad's favorite author is Stephen King. My mom says I was named for Jesus; Dad says I was named for the car.

Your bringing up Stephen King reminds me of something from like a decade ago, I guess.

Being from New England (specifically living in a small town called "Durham", in Maine - King fans might understand why this is relevant), everyone there was always up Stephen King's ass.

I can get it, I guess, he's a famous person who lived in a small town, and graduated from a nearby school.

But it's one of the many things that ostracized me from that small town group. I don't like the Patriots, I don't like Stephen King (I'm not really fond of horror in general, but King's books in particular were hard for me to finish, not because of the content, but because I got bored with them), and I wasn't a typical redneck.

So I guess my point (and random fact about myself), is that I (like many of you, possibly) was pushed online, because of differences from my local peer group. I got tired of getting bullied for having different interests and tastes, and was never going to be able to pretend to like something I didn't.

Maybe that's my fatal flaw. I wear my heart on my sleeve, and among peers, I'm often at odds. I don't know if my brain is just wired differently, or if I was raised to never be a follower, or what it was, but sometimes I wonder how different my life would be if I could have pretended to enjoy things I didn't. It would be awful fake, but I wonder if I'd be happier.

Random fact: I sometimes use a playful insult: 'nine-ball'. This is basically a light-hearted synonym for the word 'idiot' because Chiruno/Cirno from Touhou is nicknamed this, after she is labelled in the instruction booklet of one of the games '9. BAKA'.

I think the last time I had my card fully paid down was back in February. Woops. Oh well, life.

Here's a fact about myself.

I'm terrible at just letting good things stay good.

And so usually things just fall to shit.

You're definitely not alone on this board. Sometimes I think I fear success or when things are too good.

Update:

Life is great! So here's another fun fact about me:

I might believe in God now? I'm not sure.

I was having an awful day, truly awful. It looked like my relationship was ending, and my entire life was being thrown into chaos. So I went down to the basketball courts near my house. It's like 8:30 PM, and there's not a soul on the court besides me. I'm missing all of my shots, because I'm so distracted and out of practice, and just all around, having a rough time, even on the court.

Everything is frustrating me a ton, and I had no friends or family to really turn to, and I was about to lose the person most important to me.

So I got down on my knees and prayed. Something I haven't done since I was like 10. I lost my faith around the age of 14, I think, but that's not too important.

Anyway, I got down and prayed for a solid 10 minutes or so, trying to have this deep conversation with someone I wasn't sure existed, or cared, or what. It was just a last ditch thing that I thought was totally rational in this situation.

Amazingly, after I finished praying, I went back and took a shot I never, ever make, even when I was really good back in high school, I'd never make the shot, because it was simply not one I could logically process the angle on.

It went in, swish, perfectly. I could not have shot it better if I had tried.

As I'm walking over to fetch my ball from directly underneath the basket, I see my phone vibrating, as I got a message. The message was from my girlfriend, apologizing for everything we had been fighting about (long story short, my life goal is to have kids, and she doesn't want them, so it prompted a huge fight between us - we've been dating for three years). She'd even come around a bit, and we'd come to an understanding and compromise, something I thought would be impossible.

This all seemed like too much of a coincidence for me. I went from having a bleak outlook on life, missing even easy shots I could hit in my sleep, and an utter collapse of everything I had come to know over the past three years, and in a span of about 10 seconds, the entire thing turned around.

The timing was just too great. I had so many chills in the moment, and I felt very unalone at that moment. I was kind of scared, but not in a way that felt unwelcome.

I don't know what happened, but it was a sort of miracle of some kind. I didn't think one could ever possibly happen to me.
