    Count your blessings thread

    Post by skarekrow13 on Mon Jul 29, 2013 10:20 am

    So this section has seen it's fair number of social experiment/self help threads but overwhelmingly they're generally to vent or discuss problems. Well, we've been missing the OTHER part of feeling good about oneself and I think I need to rectify it finally.

    Here's the rules:
    1. All posts MUST be about something good that has occurred in your life, trivial things are fine (wait until you see how I open the counting of blessings)
    2. Discussions about posts are fine but again, the tone should be positive and supportive (the "Let it out" thread and others have shown me we will be good at this)
    3. That's really it for now.

    I'm sitting at work going through data for my supervisor to help with an annual report and:

    The MacGyver theme song starts playing on my Zune. Awesome!

    The song "Paint it Black" played everyday for two weeks on Pandora. Sometimes twice in a school day. Pandora is awesome.

    I have school papers to write, but I can do them while watching William Shatner talk into a 1960s art deco lamp. I've just recently discovered how wonderful the original Star Trek tv series is. Netflix is great.

    I've got a roof over my head and food and clothes. A house that my parents continue to let me live in even without a job (at nineteen).

    Supportive parents, even though I'm quite lazy.

    My computer is salvageable after all and I'll probably be sitting on it playing League of Legends a week from this very moment. I couldn't be happier. I really had given up on it.

    I'm freaking alive! lol!big grin  Seriously, though, I was born 16 weeks early, so I shouldn't be alive, or nearly as healthy as I am!

    I also got into a great college and an honors program.

    That sounds adorable in ever conceivable way.

    On topic: I was listening to my favourite band... And while I did think I had gotten tired of it. I listened to more or less all of it, and then, I felt like it was awesome, still.

    Another one: I got a fan into my room. I do not have to melt anymore!

    I have loved and lost.

    I have friends.

    I was born a white male in America.

    I live in a world where this exists.

    I have more interests than time.

    I started a website for fun with one of my best friends and it became a haven of friendship for thousands.

    My favorite thing on earth is green tea. I drink three cups daily and every time I make a cup, I feel like no matter how my day is going, everything at that moment is just where it should be.

    I counted, I have 99 blessings, but I might need munch on a few of them.

    I got a hilarious invasion against Archmage today.

    Green tea is pretty awesome. Best hangover cure ever. Just makes you feel all clean and nice and hydrated.



    It's about to be my last semester as a college student, then I'll finally have my degree and be able to start looking for a real job. That's a wonderful thing.

    Some new regulations, although a pain at the moment, will lead to far less work for me in the long run

    I used to be an 18 year old with no job, no car, and no life.

    Now i'm 21 years old with a job that pays me very good (people would love to make the kind of money i do, especially at my age), i have a girlfriend i've been with for 3 years, my own apartment, and a really nice car that i love dumping money into.

    I'm pretty much set at the moment. Next is a house, a dog, and eventually i want to have a baby boy. He'll grow up to be just like his dad, stuntin around town in his nice car, breakin everyone's necks, making the haters hate. twisted

    They always seem to run towards you instead of away when you surprise em like that don't they?

    I was driving home from work one night when I used to work security at a hotel near here. I was the first shift night guy, so I was usually on from 6 to anytime between midnight and 1 or 2, depending on how many people were in the hotel and when the second shift guy got there, and the road I used to take to get home was a bit of a back road on top of it, so both that combined with the time I was usually driving home almost always meant that I'd be the only car on the road the whole drive. It was about a 25 mile drive, and it'd be late, and usually I'd be tired so I used to pop in some nice mellow music, like Radiohead or something, and just chill out and enjoy the drive and be in my own little world out on the road. So I was doing that this night, cruising at around 65ish I'd think, kinda zoning out, at least as much as you safely can behind the wheel, just totally serene and enjoying my music, and suddenly there was a crazy loud bang against my drivers side door, a bright flash of light, and there was a huge furry head pressed against my window. Scared the crap out of me. Almost literally. I couldn't have been more unsuspecting that something like that was about to happen. Totally swerved and almost drove off the road. I guess I spooked a big buck that had been far enough off the shoulder that I hadn't seen it when I was coming up on it, and it took off running towards my car and hit just in time to connect right with my sideview mirror, twisting it into the window, and somehow catching the light from my headlights, throwing a bright reflection in my face, then plastering it's own head against the window, before spinning itself around in a 180, then running back into the woods. Such a crazy experience. I really nearly pooped my pants.

    I've been in a truck with a very similar occurrence. My wife had a deer ram a work van on her once. That one was in the middle of town.
