I got a call yesterday about a drawing for a trip for Hawaii. I learn next month if I win or not.

I'm crying a lot lately. It's been a roller coaster and I'm pouring myself into music... so a lot of Mac Miller again.

I think my craving for mac and cheese is going away too.

I'm kinda laughing because I just realized how filled with "mac" my life has been for the past couple of days. Ridiculous.

I'm writing a lot more as the days get colder.

I've got a few interests, but most of them don't want to date me or are in unstable conditions.

So... I'm really liking my bed, solo style, lately.

Images of gas output of corn! Great. I love it.

    Paranormal claims of Kirlian photography have not been observed or replicated in experiment by the scientific community.[31][32] The physiologist Gordon Stein has written that Kirlian photography is a hoax that has "nothing to do with health, vitality, or mood of a subject photographed."[33]

Dude Kirlian photography is dope. (1) clip electrodes to your subject (2) lay your subject out on a piece of film (3) zap the bejeesus out of your subject with high voltage (4) develop the resulting arc contacts. Bonus points to darlinareyousleepy for finding a pun in all of this.

Sure, it's dope, it's just not evidence of anything supernatural.

This isn't my favorite from the shoot, but it's the most symmetrical.

Lol the hubwheel kleinbl00 thenewgreen

However, I will admit, I messaged someone about it and still have no idea how it works.

darlinareyousleepy  ·  23 days ago  ·  link  ·  

With the lack of responses, I feel like the hubwheel is like Fight Club.

Thoughts:

1) I should be writing at this hour. I probably will after writing this.

2) I have to make phone calls in the morning.

3) I miss my grandfather.

4) I miss my life 4 years ago.

5) I have to pick up slack on so many different types of skills; it makes me tired just thinking about it.

6) Money is never going to fill the void(but it will pay for my favorite places); thinking of alcoholism/addiction as a disease is doing wonders for my creative process.

7) I keep using this site to drop poetry and I swear that it's helping me feel a bit better.

8) What I want to do has a lot of acronyms and I need to drill them into my head. But- if I do this right, this is going to make my 20s comfortable enough to start working on inventions.

9) Seriously. What is sleep?

10) I'm wondering when it's safe to start living an ascetic lifestyle again.

... I am going to go write.

darlinareyousleepy  ·  80 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Welcome to Hubski

I was here before under the pseudonym of scatterbii (I believe). Life caught up with me, I started catching up with life, and I remembered the stickers that were sent to me a while back.

Got back on the site and there was a post about aa after I just got into that program.

Feels like fate stepped in.

This feels like a quieter hub for discussion on the net and I feel like I can stop in to see what is happening every week and not feel pressured about it.

Welcome back! Best of luck with quitting drinking.

Hello, i saw someone mention this place on HackerNews as an alternative to reddit. I sometime miss the old reddit so i thought why not see what Hubski has to offer.

I read some post and all the discussion around here seem so thoughtful, i think it's definitely the right place for me!

pajalock  ·  71 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Hello. I'm glad I found hubski. Found it by Google searching Black River State Forest backpacking. Looking forward with enthusiasm to exploring hubski! #newtohubski

It's a relatively small site. This impacts conversations in a few ways. Two ways which you don't see in other sites are

A) When you see heated arguments, it's not because we're all being anonymous jerks to each other. It's because we know each other well enough that two people can vehemently disagree in one thread and heartily agree in another thread. You'll still get some conversations that go too far from time to time, that might lead to hurt feelings, but they're very much a rarity around here. Because it's a small site and because of that dynamic, if you find that there's someone you just butt heads with often, it's best to exercise some self restraint and interact with them on the minimum.

B) Don't be surprised if it takes days for a conversation to unfold. For example, I might make a comment, get a response from someone, and might not respond back for hours and sometimes even days. For that matter, thread necromancy and referring back to threads that are literally years old is a normal thing around here.

Greetings everyone. I've come here looking for an alternative to the more popular social media platforms that reinforce the spreading of viral garbage. I used to enjoy Facebook and reddit back before they became the screaming matches and echo chambers they are today.

Hopefully hubski's design principles actually do reinforce thoughtful discourse even if/when its popularity grows.

Neat! That was my first overnight to test out my gear. It's a nice spot even if it isn't incredibly remote.

troischiens if you have any questions on that trip or other hiking in the area, let me know! I've started working on the Ice Age Trail, and it has some backpacking opportunities, too. There are some dispersed campsites along the trail that aren't heavily advertised because they're intended for hikers doing long stretches of trail.

Lastly, watch that video up there real when you're done reading this post. It's a pretty good metaphor for what you're experiencing right now. You're like that warthog. You're in a new environment, and not only are you getting used to your surroundings, you're also getting to know the residents and they're getting to know you. Know why it's such a great metaphor for this place? Because that Savannah exhibit is full of different animals and here, with the exception of a few common traits, we're actually really diverse. We have people from different countries, different classes, different ages, and different education levels all mixing it up. Even with such a small site where we know each other relatively well, with such a diverse user base sometimes signals get crossed. It's normal.

Your name matters. Here, people are able to build genuine connection with each other due to the way conversations are ran. People will remember what you said, and you have time to think before posting. You seem like a reasonable person, but I'm going to say it anyway: take that time. The reason being...

People are genuine here. Often enough, it leads to serious clashes even between friends. Sometimes, people will say things that will incite anger in you. Take the time to sit back or take a walk and think about what you want to say, and whether you want to say anything at all right now. If this is something you're not used to - which, coming from Reddit, you might not yet be expecting of yourself - it will take some effort. I'm sure you'll be fine in this regard, but, again, worth saying.

If you need a place to start, there are a few tags you might want to participate in, commenting, posting or simply following.

pajalock  ·  71 days ago  ·  link  ·  

It's on here! It's a filter that removes the majority of the gamification aspects of the website. Namely, share count and follower information. You can find it in the drop down menu on your settings page. If you don't know how to get there, just click your username on the top left corner, then click the link that says "settings." The zen option will be on a drop down menu in the third column of your settings page.

My wife has been on hubski for many years now and has tried to get me to join several times. She's a lurker.

I am getting my grad degree in information systems engineering so i avoided it as i didn't need yet another place to go to lose time. But hey, it is a new year so now is a good time to get the ball rolling and if all goes well i will have the degree in a few months and lots more free time.

I love philosophy music and lively debate so i hope I will fit right in.

Welp, "Firebrand" was already taken by a barely active user almost 2 000 days ago.

I was a member here before. Then I left. Now I'm back, 'cause it's just about the only place to have any serious conversation from the many I've visited, and I'm nothing if not a serious man.

Let's see how this goes.

pajalock  ·  71 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Hi! Another just joined.

Hoping to find a better discussion than Reddit.

I like talking about music, books, & other media.

I look forward to bringing activity to #Chicago when I can post!

ever they want as if it's a pub. That's were I'd recommend getting a good feel for those that are in the site poppin' into the site. Of course, that's just a sample of who's available that week.

There are some tags out there that give you some insight to a handful of users around here like #adayinthelife and #3questions. Take your time with them if you go down those rabbit holes. There's a bit there.
