It's fucking January, a month I usually associate with an excess of negativity. So let's throw some positivity into the mix. Fuck knows there's a dire need for that right now. So I decided to open this thread as a companion to "Bitch About Things You're Pissed Off About". Here be rose-tinted glasses, positive surprises, fascination, love and whatnot. Okay, I'll start:

In spite of all the little obstacles, my initial grumpy stupor and the motivational downward spiral that had transpired over the last few of my events, I had a blast yesterday. Many nice people showed up. I was able to relax a bit and I was in good spirits. Just a chill atmosphere, no one up to no good and I actually got to enjoy talking to people as opposed to just hopping around from task to task and being completely on autopilot. More of that, please

A great thing about my January. Ms Ild and our cats are generally pretty cold in bad weather, and I generally run warm...so....closeness!

Yeah, that's certainly a silver lining. Man, I'd love to have cats, unfortunately I'm allergic to them. Love those little furballs though. Always glad when I get to visit someone with cats. Small dose exposure is totally fine.

Ah, same! Same!

I was going to respond to this (very nice, thank you, Antagon) thread by saying something like, “I’ll let you know when something comes up!” but cold-weather cat cuddles are without question one of the highlights of life.

I come home from work late, exhausted, feeling like general rubbish and lately really noticing the emptiness of a once-shared home and I throw myself on the couch and fire up the Kindle or the laptop for a half hour or so of relative relaxation. And it’s immediate. The moment I’m spread out, my older cat (and long-term cohort and possible best friend) just hops right up, paws at my arm until I move it, and nuzzles himself into my armpit with his little kitty-paws propped up on my shoulder... just purring like a goddamn buzzsaw... and it sometimes makes me tear up a bit.

My younger cat is a little bit less of a smuggler and more of a bitch, but she eventually joins in too. It’s bliss.

The other day I recorded the purring on my phone and saved it as an MP3 on iTunes. Like 10 minutes of purring. Thinking about doing that more, because it’s like Xanax for the ears and heart.



I mean, life still fucking blows a lot, but animals are little pieces of God.

Yeah....animal snuggles are the best. Nothing better than sleeping in a warm bed with 3 animals keepin' ya extra warm. Got a Russian Blue cat, German Shep/Pitbull mix, and a Shi Tzu/Yorkie mix.

Right now I'm feeling happier about how I've ben playing in Street Fighter 3. I feel like I've been getting worse this past year. People who I normally rock started to get better and I lose my composure too much. Even when I was in Chicago for the first week of the year, I lost a lot of matches I never used to lose before....got me really salty. But since then, I've really started to just keep my cool and be a bit more consistent. Not exactly where I want to be, but back on track.
(Also....biggest SF3 tournament of the year just happened. This makes me very happy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEuxit7s9ZI )

Monitor Dell u2311h.
Case Lian Li Q01.
Logitech Illuminated keyboard.
Mouse Logitech m590 (I've been using "silent" mouses for years, I need the feedback but the clicking is less intrusive, even if "silent" is definitely an overstatement)

Speakers are Wharfedale DS-1.
Nothing too fancy (the pc is still on sk1150 and I still work with CS6 with no regrets, ahaha..).

I've been thinking about adding a second monitor for years, but nowadays I work mainly on my 13.3" laptop, so adding another "big" screen seems kinda pointless after all. Gotta get a larger desk to make room for other stuff, though (wacom etc).


edit: print by P98a , frame by ikea, scraped wall by yours truly because the paint was ruined and starting to cruble in that section, scraping it I discovered the layer underneath had some weird surface, I guess it was glue for wallpaper or something like that, I kinda grew attached to it and it's staying for now.

2 weeks in and I'm already moving my girl into the house

Maybe I'm nuts and impulsive but it feels right af

She's a hit w all family n friends, and I've known her for 5 yrs as a casual acquaintance. Screw it, yknow?

Currently organizing the house and just getting shit together. Shes such a big help already. I feel complete. Her pomeranian and my big ass german shepherd/rottweiler even get along

Had jackfruit quesadillas she made for dinner today

Nice!

Jackfruit is interesting....had jackfruit tacos before....not bad. I'd probably never eat them again though.

I have 10 days left to my vacation.
I can't wait.
I am not doing too bad + I got a job enquiry from Switzerland and I'll have a telephone interview today.
Life's not so bad these days.

I had it in a faux pulled pork sandwich before

"it's just as good as the real thing," my vegan friends lied through their teeth

Still - not bad. not pulled pork though

So that assignment I recently pretty much phoned in due to time constraints (and which I expected to have a terrible reception) was just rated 90/100. Don't care much about that particular lecture, but it's a nice surprise nonetheless

the best part here though is that i recently got a manduka mat (on sale) and the old and now stiff "natural rubber" jade mat has moved to daytime supine duty

beats, you know, this kind of situation...
