So far none of yet, I'm narrowing down to Chelyabinsk's event at the moment from the astronomy side to get a clear picture on what I expect to see from the GIS side when viewing the existing paper's plots. My paper itself is still in the works, and I'm getting a couple opinions from some astronomy professors on how the different models of the energy emitted inform the break-up of the meteor.

Hoping to get enough material to make a plot to overlay onto existing papers using simple buffering tools (also highlighting individual meteorite falls with markers) depending on what I find.

On mobile all day, so no graphs at the moment, but I have links!

I'm looking at recorded events like Chelyabinsk and Tunguska in terms of the mapping of their area hit (or in gaming terms: area of effect). I'm looking to scrutinize the accuracy of the plotted areas on maps across a minimum of 3 models of how meteors fracture in our atmosphere upon entry. The plan is to validate said mapping techniques against newer models (I found couple fresh models produced last year and this year that I'm pumped to cross-reference).

My asteroids professor gave me a couple huge leads on who's research to dig into for the project. Other than that, I'm lucky to have found an amazing guidance counselor in my college.

Present

One month and one day from this post, I'll have walked in my graduation ceremony. And damn, its a long way away from this post.

To that end, the advice I followed has me headed to class to learn more about what cometary dust tells us about the formation of our solar system. After which, I'm heading to a workshop on how I can best review the GIS modeling techniques of previous airburst/bolide (meteor hit) events for my capstone project.

Suffice to say, shit's kinda lit. Knowing I actually have less than 4 weeks since graduation happens after classes end is a nice reminder to plan backwards.

Post-Graduation

Heading to Cuba for a stint mid-January, then I'm off to Birthright in February. I want to lock in the farm to extend my stay there over this weekend.

Relationshit

I think I need to find other mediums alongside do another overhaul on my current dating platforms. 'Cuz this shit ain't happening. I've reaffirmed my standards are high in terms of emotional intelligence I'm looking for, so that may be a part of the latter...

On that note, I have been connecting with someone who is not available in terms of dating and that's ok. Someone recently shared a couple key points:

1) There is (socializing) stuff anyone has to do before dating is on the table. When you get to that crossroad, then you can start talking about whether dating is something two parties are open to.

2) As such, there is no pressure with this person. Have fun, see it as practice for the former and enjoy what I cultivate with them.

3) Networking isn't just a business term. Perhaps this person can point me in the direction of what I'm looking for.

Early Year in Review

I met so many goals I set for myself.

☑️ Job

☑️ Car

☑️ Gaming

☑️ Running

___ Graduate (PENDING)

The only couple glaring ones were fitness goals (absurd amounts of pull ups), and relationships (WIP). I found I could define the past few semesters by [failed] relationships. Each one had be get a little bit closer to what I'm looking for, alongside coming to understand redflags for me. And yet, my biggest take away there is the community I have around me to catch me when I fall. What I've learned from them on dating, how they've enabled me to work through getting 'unstuck,' and moving on to find/attract a more wholesome partner.

God I fucking love sub-titles.

Thank you so much!

EDIT: Found it, undeleted, and surprised I didn't edit out the text. Much appreciated Devac!

I'm certain it didn't get badged. I think I folded before it got 24 hours on the site. I've been combing through my own posts and tags it could have been under. This comment reminded me it was under #depression, and I ain't finding it there. I was fairly confident it wasn't posted under the old account, but if I didn't find the option to 'un-delete' along the way, I may have to dust off the old thing. Thanks for the memory jog. Ay-Nawn is getting some brief fresh air.

Looks like there are machine recounts for FL Senator. I'd like to think its the same for Gov, but not expecting a a delta of 50k votes to flop the other way. Seems like next to none of my dogs won the race, but hey, we banned actual dog racing. Weirdly all the amendments got voted in.

My understanding is re-districting this time around still favors red for FL. Going to run back through the list of good things to come out of this midterm. Also going to review which states are going to have similar climates in the coming decades.

Annoying as shit since Broward's usually a blue hub. Watching DeSantis taking the polls in real time. :I

Bad brain day (borrowing some OB terms) after an intense weekend. Bright side is I'm meeting up with some good guys to lay it to rest tonight.

Time really flies! The classes are 2 hours and feel like 1. Only got a taste of Bachata last time, but it feels a lot more fluid moving side to side than forward to back.

Heartfulness is a form of meditation driven by centering awareness on your heart as a source of 'light,' relaxing from there, and consistently guiding your awareness back to that notion. It's especially nice way to fall into a meditative state or what feels like a lucid nap.

Subtitles still relevant, yeah?

Y'all serve chicken soup here? Almost done filing a recent cold as an immunity. 🤧 Wish I got it earlier last week.

Life

I've picked up meditation and salsa on Mondays. The salsa classes have nearly replaced my time on online apps just as a way of making a connection. A good metaphor shared with me: working out : martial arts :: dating apps : dancing. The preceeding actions augment the later one, but the practicality of the latter trumps/incorporates the elements of the former. Best of all, it's a blast learning the moves alone - when I have a dance partner who is in sync despite us both being beginners, that's the fun part. Practicing 'heartfulness' before hopping into salsa definitely helps to stay in the moment.

Reflections

1.

I think I have to take a step back from consuming more Kavanaugh/MeToo related content or friend posts. It's hard to not project onto generalized statements about men as a whole from women I care about. Hell, it permeates my gaming world. Sticking my head in the sand and letting my vote speak for itself is looking enticing.

2.

Don't have my journal since the move and I want to get this out of my head, so here:

I've been tutoring a friend of mine for free recently. They've been struggling to pass the test to become a certified K-6 teacher here for years. At this point, they've identified math as the pitfall come test day. I care a lot this person, and working with them I get the sense they aren't wasting my time with how they've been studying between work and heavy life matters. Their persistence in taking the test over 10 times over the past few years (it's no free examination mind you) reminds me of my grandma's grit.... My g-ma was an elementary school teacher for 30 plus years who valued education above many things. I feel as though I'm carrying on her legacy providing this to my friend who's been struggling to jump this hurdle they've committed to despite severe life stresses. We made this an indefinite endeavor until we're both confident in their mastery of these subjects. I'm excited to see this be the last examination taken.

Inktober

Any other hubskians participating? Any themes or learnings this year? This year I learned sketching out in pencil first isn't a sin. Excited to read what y'all's mediums and utensils are. Possibly sharing works?
