I am looking for work!

I just finished a script and I am looking for work as something more stable.

Still moving! But the house is finished and it looks gorgeous!

darlinareyousleepy  ·  38 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Let's have a book thread! What have you been reading?

I have been reading:

-Visual C 5 in 21 Days 4th Edition by Nathan Gurowich & Ori Greenwich

I told myself that I would learn C! I have been mainly perusing articles on FL Studio while I take time to read this, but I am still getting in a page or 2 a day!

-Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman

A reread. I got an extensive edition that includes the original publishing and the additions added to it.

I used to read it hitchhiking and it is bringing up some good feelings.

-Still Life with Woodpecker by Tom Robbins

Another reread.

My beloved has never read a book by the man, but I read some outloud to him and he enjoyed it.

Now we take a few hours every week to read it out loud to each other. It is fun.

-A Prayer for Owen Meany

I honestly dislike this book so much that I have put it down and have been putting off finishing it.

I might take it with me travelling to force myself to read this book, but dear lord, can I not get annoying Owen Meany's voice out of my head.

My beloved is reading:

-Tropic of Capricorn by Henry Miller

An excellent sequel.

-Catch 22 by Joseph Heller

He finished this reread recently. We discussed how we felt about the book to each other.

Upcoming: I'm hoping to read some scifi as well as read more technical books. There is also some juicy cheap erotica calling my name, but I am trying to get focused on my technical education.

My boyfriend wants to read a nonfiction book on racism that I added to the library.

    can I not get annoying Owen Meany's voice out of my head.

At least, you can hear it.

As would HAVE SAID CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW .

Funny fact: the all-caps was to mimic how the Christ talk in some bible (I have heard)

I read the book in my twenties, twice (which I barely do). Loved it, and still vividly remember a few scene (the Armadillo, and the finger cut).

I can get why you are bored by the book. I dont get the " dislike this book so much" part. Except if the religious theme make you angry. But the theme is not apparent until the very end, and it stay pretty mild.

    -Tropic of Capricorn by Henry Miller

I also loved and read this book in my twenties, which make me guess you're in your twenties, and we must all go through those books :)

    -Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman

Fun fact: most of the poem are lies. Whitman was not were he said he was (not even close), at the time he said he was. I guess art is just elaborate lying

LANA DEL REY'S NEW ALBUM IS COMING OUT TOMORROW

I'll share then.

Valentine's day is tomorrow and my date is making it a surprise.

Also, it is a beautiful, rainy day in California and I have a performance at a hotel in a couple weeks.

What do you play?

darlinareyousleepy  ·  157 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I am a singer.

NikolaiFyodorov  ·  157 days ago  ·  link  ·  

As a man who causes agony to those I love whenever I participate in karaoke, I envy you.

I've been reading a lot more in between writing.

I've been slowly learning to enjoy the world disconnected. I need to look for work soon, but thankfully I am in a position where I can take my time.

I want to take the next exam, but I need to work before I do that. The IT world is more experience based than anything.

I'll just take a soda water with some lime.

I've been signing NDAs, so I can't tell y'all, but I'll tell y'all.

I'm doing Hollywood.

I'm trying to grow as a person.

I get a car later this week.

I've gotten a laptop.

Also, I am listening to a lot of music.

darlinareyousleepy  ·  291 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Pubski: October 3, 2018

-recording next week

-going to red carpet events

-feeling happier than I have ever been-sober.

-meeting people in the industry

-left a concert early and made several people laugh because of a comment I made about their performance

-still finding time to study for my certs this winter.

I think my life is going better than last week, people.

darlinareyousleepy  ·  298 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Pubski: September 26, 2018

-lost my position today

Go figure. The school I worked for didn't want to have bookers anymore. At least I have my check.

They also want me to attend so I can book an agent for modelling and such. What a headache.

-possibly going into the studio next week.

Might be doing music for the industry.

Super excited about that.

-opening up a new bank account tomorrow

-visited the place I stayed at over the summer

-applying for work

-time to really study computer stuff

-time to finish the first draft of my novel

-love interest doesn't want to speak to me anymore

Blaring comfort music. Sleeping in and praying for stability. Calling people and most are busy.

If you want to send a message to me, now is the time.

-going to an aa meeting tonight

City of Angels, baby. Gotta love it.

When is the next meetup for Hubski? I would be interested, but it depends on the timing.

-staying busy to keep busy

Here I am sitting in a bar and drinking soda water with lime like a casual. Bars have great karaoke- what can I say?

... all in all, not a bad week. Just filled with life.

darlinareyousleepy  ·  328 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.

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  ·  319 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

pajalock  ·  319 days ago  ·  link  ·  

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.

pajalock  ·  319 days ago  ·  link  ·  

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.

pajalock  ·  319 days ago  ·  link  ·  

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  ·  319 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.

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!

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.
