Put it on my wishlist. The scenario described reminds me of Burn Notice. I love Altered Carbon's depiction of ghost pain and PTSD, but for lack of your original body thus far.

The Stranger is a good one by him, too.

Somehow got into web novels. Enjoying Release that Witch so far. Also, Altered Carbon on Netflix is compelling. Found out a couple of minors I was going to pick up along the way need to fall by the wayside in order to graduate, but it's no biggie. And off to meet a lady friend I've been seeing consistently of late.

Still chipping away at my mid-term New Years goals. Feels good.

    It's like the video game equivalent of a blanket warm from the dryer.

That's the good shit. I thought I might have posted this (guess I didn't), but I think you'll appreciate:

The eSports community I'm in raved about Devilman Crybaby to no end. Yes, the soundtrack was refreshing, the delivery was explicit, and did a stellar job creating nuance in otherwise simplistic characters. But the ending threw me for a spin that didn't flow as well as I expected the plot to given the setup. Maybe it was a function of such a short series, maybe the magic was lost in the adaptation, or maybe I have to let the story settle in my mind before re-watching.

Speaking of re-watching, Netflix released all 5 parts of FMA:B alongside a live-action. Boy, that was a series worth taking for another spin. I finally realized [SPOILERS] Scar actively received his brother's tattoos for creation during his time with Marco leading up to the fight with Wrath. [/SPOILERS] Watching again helped me understand what the hell the gate of truth was and it's relationships to alchemists/humans. Also, the voice dub is phenomenal.

On and off watching Planet Earth II thanks to Pabs' thread. There are some goddamn amazing shots taken (at least for a pleb like me), it's complimented well with TierZoo.

Meh, still a nice story to compliment the prior statements, and always get a kick out of the way you write. Glad things are working out since then, guessing since things are more project based in Hollywood, it's one of those 'wait [insert mid-term length of time] and you'll have a new boss/co-worker' deals anyway.

    When you put your foot down and say "I won't engage in this immoral claptrap" you've automatically added yourself to the outgroup.

Similar experience happened with my cadre in HS. They burned out faster than I had, allowing underclassmen to take up their would-be positions. Sucked since we were the core crew that got shit done, but I grew more closer to my staff that picked up where they left off. I kept noticably quiet around cadre as they ragged on the new staff, and eventually we fell away. Shortly after I got some cute pranks pulled on me until graduation with some palpable snark from the latter group about it.

Curios on what your take away from the 'Melissa' layoff was in terms of how did that affect your decisions in future jobs/interacting with co-workers.

    If you mean along the bottom part of your trap

You nailed it. I first became aware of it as a tingling accompanying pain, which freaked me out. A little more time and a I figured out it was muscular rather than topical. Good suggestion! My uni houses one that I'm heading on campus to get more details on. I know our wellness center provides massages, but the site's been down. Looking forward to getting this ironed out.

Finally finished with exams. Almost good to kick back for a bit. Within the past year I developed a point of tension just under one of my shoulder blades when I'm stressed. I get the feeling its causing the persistent headache and nausea from the past couple days.

    There are degrees of tact and appropriateness even when it comes to healthy, relationship-building gossip such as klein addresses above.

Mmm... So, I guess the next question is what defines 'positive' gossip where the end result is still speaking of others - if at all.
