"Hello"
I feel some positivity could go a long way!

I'll start:

I was having a really rough night tonight. But then I went to the gym for half an hour. Very grateful it's open 24/7. I then went on a short drive to a gas station a couple miles away and got sparkling water. I stayed in the car listening to a song for a few moments, then went back inside. My little trip outside improved my mood and made my night better. I am grateful that I reached for exercising and getting out of the house instead of trying to console myself with food! Darebee is partially to thank for helping me change my mentality and coping skills! I feel lighter
:lovely:

Just a little soreness . . .

About 5 weeks ago a few weeks after getting over covid I trained with a vengeance which may have resulted in sciatica on the left then both sides and severe inflammation. Not sure if the after covid caused this intense inflammation and chills with hot flashes. I had to change the way I slept since my regular on belly style would make things worse, my wife suggested a pillow between me knees and sleep sideways.

So just being a little sore and stiff is a good thing.

I saw an email today at work in regards to the gym at work being reopened to staff starting October 1, 2022. :gotthis:

It has a shared use between staff and clients (I work at a Long Term Care/ Rehabilitation Centre) - staff don't have access to the area during treatment periods which run from 8:00am to 12:00 pm and then 1:00pm - 4::00 pm on Mondays to Fridays. There is a reasonable fee to use the area, which is well worth having the access to equipment and getting a decent workout before starting the work day.

It's been a long 30 months without having access to this area.

Not necessarily today, but a few good things over the last few months. Those of you who still remember me will be able to make sense of some of this :D

Since mid July I´m officialy two years cancer free and there´s no signs yet that it may come back. Yet... On 14th of September I had my practical exam to finish my training as a landscaper. And I failed. In two out of 7 points. But I´m finally free! Free of my hated job, free of my annoying colleagues, free of the root of all evil in my life. Well, more or less. I´ll go to the make-up exam in February, do those two things I failed and hopefully graduate. And I was allowed to keep the work clothes :D Most are of course completely worn out, but the winter parka and rain jacket are still great. And really really expensive if I bought them myself ;)

I got accepted by an University in August. Never actually thought I´d make it. Next week is the first introductionary class. I´m not actually sure, but I feel like this is the first thing in my life that I actually wanted to do and even though my A-Levels were, well, bad (barely passed) and I didn´t meet the usual standards of qualification, I got accepted. So next week I´ll start going to University to become a landscape architect.

Also in July I went to the first actual festival in, puh, 5 years or so? It was marvellous, absolutely marvellous. Didn´t really knew the folks I camped with, but after we discovered most of us were total nerds we got along swimmingly. Bad thing was I got infected with Covid, but eh. Shit happens. Can´t really do more to protect myself than get vaccinated as often as the government let´s me.

I´m finally getting back into shape after Covid, too. Before I used to take 30-45 minutes for my daily walk, depending on how often I had to stop to change the music :D Directly after Covid it took me 3 hours to walk the same route. Right now I´m back to around 45/50 minutes :)

Sorry that this post is so friggin long, but a lot of good things happened. Lot of bad stuff too, but why dwell on it? As Monty Python said so fittingly: Always look on the bright site of life. :)

@legolo Congratulations on being cancer free. I can't imagine how great that feels :heart: Thank you for sharing so much good news in here!

Good news: My new ant colony is doing well. I'm new to keeping ants (just got these guys a week or two ago), and the other day I was horrified to find that two of my ants had drowned because I put too much honey in there for them, and the "gourmet cricket" I gave them fermented and made the whole tube smell of alcohol. My queen thus hadn't eaten in a very long time. I was worried she and the workers would all die.
But I gave them regular crickets, cleaned up their tube, and there have been no further deaths. The queen is happily alive and wiggling around in there!

Life is looking up for me in general. The past two weeks have been some of the best weeks of my adult life. I also started seeing a guy recently who is kind and makes me feel appreciated. I enjoy his company and am glad we're getting along well.

I recently rekindled an old friendship I had, and this friendship is going well too :heart:

I finally started DareBee again Sat 1 Oct and got another log in yay. Was a ‘regular‘ here in 2020 as “wsmc27”, too much busy in 2021 and this year, ugh. Turning it around.

A good thing. Wishing you all well

Go Bees GO!

It's Thanksgiving weekend in Canada my wife and I will pick up our son and go for lunch at a Vegan restaurant and hang out a bit. We have a daughter but she's miles away so not today.

I sold my violin to one of my party members a week ago. Today, when I arrived to his house before we played D&D, I was surprised to listen to him playing on his own. He told me it's been three days since he started, and he does sound a whole lot better than me back when I played it. I sucked at it so bad...

After coming home, I went back to his place with the violin books that I could find, and gave them to him. He's going to have more use for them than I.

I don't know. It brings me joy to see that today.

"Hello"
I have a silly-sounding one.

I have a blow dryer which has been around in the family for at least 20 years. It's a wonderful blow dryer. I have developed sentimental attachment to it. Back when I lived with my mom, we said that this thing would live forever. I took it with me when I moved out, and it's been by my side, keeping my hair nice and dry.

It was with dismay that I tried turning it on a couple days ago and got...Nothing. No air. Not even an ounce of noise. I refused to believe this, and I continued trying to turn it on to no avail. I put it back up and hoped that maybe a few days' time would allow for it to magically start working again.

So just now, I plugged it back in...Nothing. Tried the other socket in the bathroom. Nothing. Debated Googling "how to fix a blow dryer". Decided, as a last, desperate measure, to take it to a socket in my bedroom.

...Success! My blow dryer was blowing strong as ever! It's the sockets in the bathroom that stopped working, not my blow dryer! This blow dryer lives to dry another day. No clue how or why the sockets don't work though, that sure is odd.

Went to the kitchen to make a sandwich. My roommate was making chicken wings, and she offered me to help myself. These may be the best chicken wings I've ever had. Wow. Much better than the boring sandwich I would've had!

I live on the 15th floor of an apartment building, the view faces a part of town that is just trees hiding the houses. Sitting on me lazy boy chair coffee in hand I watch the colours of the sky. We don't get a sun rise until this time of year and this morning was a orange sky then watched the Sun come up on the horizon.

Reminds me of a time back in 1973 at a Yoga weekend at an old farm. Hippies convert an old barn, below where cows once were is the living area and above was for entertainment, music and dance. Outside was a large deck where we would practice Yoga and meditation. 4am we got up and sat in meditation waiting for the Sun a big red ball to gaze on to absorb the benefits ૐ.

Just feeling good right now. Not in a lot of pain. Content with my friendships. Been getting into some really cool games. Dating a guy who is a breath of fresh air. (The last one I talked about in this thread ended up being not great.) Keeping the apartment clean and getting adult stuff situated. Glad my recent rough patch ended.
