Adding this to the positives pile, too. There's more coming on the topic in June with cDc members willing to put their name on the record to back him up and talk about it. Gives Beto another calling card against the slew of Dems throwing their name in the hat. He seemed 'run-of-the-mill,' in my eyes, otherwise.

    With a partisan lean of D+1, it’s the first swing state to sign on to the compact. But like 10 of the other 12 jurisdictions to pass the compact, Colorado is doing so when Democrats have full control of state government, meaning the party is in power in both branches of the legislature and holds the governorship. And even in the other two instances, it was still possible for the compact to pass with only Democratic support.3 That suggests that a state’s willingness to pass a National Popular Vote bill may rely not just on its blueness in presidential elections but also on whether its legislature and governor are Democratic.

Power of the 'Blue Wave' from 2016, yeah?

Spoke about that last point with the ex-med student I'm working with. I'd think the lack of new resources to power regen would slow it, but he thinks digestion process only slows down regen.

If you grow a whole new thumb overnight, throw a holler.

Aight 'skians, here are some boompoints - since bullet points won't sound like my voice in your head (or your voice in your head - you do you).


BOOM Over all illnesses and subsequent irritable-ness... es... These two popped in time when the weather warmed up.

BOOM Friendship with a gal in the States fizzled out coincidentally when she began hanging out with her now boyfriend

BOOM Working in a loving family business with a routine work schedule of varying tasks where I can see progress (adds to sense of purpose).

bonus boom Every time I'm off the mountain and in the valley, people I bump into talk about how they worked with/sing praises of/buy from the family (ditto re: purpose).

BOOM I'm on the other side of the Earth with as much or as little distractions from home - including job/academia hunting.

All 4 boons been sloughing off some weighted personality blankets I've been cuddling under for years. Having less and less pulls back to the States (health, girl) plus leveling out my norms here (routine, weather) finally washed away some grime in mah persona-pores.


Take aways:

WOW I dig how much I've been putting into relationships - even in the falling face first ones. I don't dig how much I bend my line of mind to others interests in hopes of something working out. Learning about gal back home (AKA lesson #3) taught me I let on I give lotta shits about other people to mask how little shits I give on the whole.

WOW I miss my voice. The one that uses vocal chords. I got opinions, needs, and damn fine taste in interests. Silence and waiting is a sweet tactic, but leveraging their use against acting on my wants (via giving it sound) with confidence make 'em more potent.

WOW I have options even when I get back home. Job search is only one. The amount of options for heavily subsidized trips back here are boundless... but the option to get a dual citizenship altogether affords hella in the long run (especially mid-run it turns out).

WOW I feel great for a 20-something. I'm my own best critic, and yet - giving credit where its due - my internal compass has not led me wrong. I have more wind in my sails than I expected; plus, a good crew at my back.


Non-Sequitur Summary (get pranked, this was a sub-titles rip the whole time)

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is on Netflix.

Balancing reading, journaling, and drawing is lovely.

I have fingernails now that I don't have papers to write!

    Previous Preoccupations: student, being alone.

😎 x2

Kinda reminds me of

Instead, What do we do with art of Us versus Them with the connotation of 'What do we pass down to our children?'

More a matter of what the kids do with the information of 'these people look/dress/act different' and how their mentors guide them therein... presenting other books, views and qualified, succinct history with blended classrooms should do the trick given no predispositions on the kids' part.

Name: נתניל, Kantos

Location: Northern Israel; Resident of Central FL, USA.

Age: 23

Current Preoccupation: Lurking-ish, recent college grad. Floating the possibility of traveling more before more serious job hunting. Applying to jobs and grad school every once in a while. Focusing on GIS jobs and masters programs (that or statistical computing for the M.S.) Thinking I have to re-gear toward any math oriented position given my degree, but that's all on the back burner for another week or two.

Holding back for a mini-pubski update. Weird waiting until late afternoon or evening to see the pub go up. Now I know how veen et al over here see the hub feed move.

Previous Preoccupation: GRE-studying, volunteering in mental health workshops, college shin-dig, nail biting, ah and League of Legends (for now)

Very nice reading these lowkey engagement bombshells.

Takin' my time there still :-)

Holy fuck I'm tired. Ended the hiking trip with Birthright sick. Spent an extra 5 days in Jerusalem in order to recover and ended up worse than I came. Off to a remote farm for 8 hours 6 days a week. Waking up to hating this decision suddenly. Giving it a couple days - maybe.

Phase 3 of Operation Graduation Celebration is underway. Arrived in Israel yesterday on Taglit (10-day trip with peers to travel the country). Extending the stay for a month - 9 more days with the group, then family for a few, settling in with a small farm for the duration.

I think the only Israeli 'skian to possibly connect with IRL is Cumol? Are you out of the country still?

Jackpot, thanks for the rundown! I've been eyeing the Home license for Esri, but what I'm looking to do would be a mix of personal and business. The lighthouses in California map you posted a while back, which program did you use for that? Assume that qualified well for a personal experiment/ArcGIS?
