the future when i will truly be happy with every aspect of my life not necessarily a spouse , though that would be nice, but when i can move out and have a job i truly like and only bother with people that completely understand me
reading, friends, movies and family
i would like to see games on here . i like playing games on FB and that would be more interaction.
We should be able to find our old entries and put them here .
@markgamer From the old 43T? Is the new site actually ran by the same people/company?
@rainbowssparks I don't know. I wonder how we could find out.
@rainbowssparks it's not the same people. In the help section, it says http://help.43things.com/article/21-old-accounts-and-data-from-43things-com
@markgamer It's not, unfortunately. They have no connection to the old site and they've said they can't retrieve the entries. :(
@mycupofstars That's unfortunate . Oh well i guess there's nothing we can do about it.
@mycupofstars Even if it were the same people I'd doubt that they stored the data of the old site for this long. Why keep that server space when you can do so much else with it?
@rainbowssparks I thought you already knew , Of course not... the new site has nothing to do with the former guys that ran the old 43t and is ran and managed by @kuntzman and me (which is not easy)
@sahlavit I knew it was you and @kuntzman (and even suspected another user, wrongly it appears now ;)) in charge of the site, but had no clue about whether you were connected to the original robot co-op that ran the site back then. Brave of you to take it on with just two people, must be a lot of work. Grateful for the time you spend on it, you're both doing a good job.
i have been lifting more heavy boxes but i try not to lift too many so i don't sprain my back
i did have to lift several heavy boxes for almost an hour and a half but i had trouble so maybe i should join the gym
Walking 1 way from work good. i wouldn't want to do both ways in the same though. It takes between 50 and 55 minutes. I usually wait a few minutes if i after work so i'm not so tired. I also got the gym with my friend.
I walked to work It seemed longer than walking home even though i took the same way. Luckily i got a ride home because after work i was sore and tired. The girl is really nice who gave me a ride I usually talk to at work.
@markgamer How far is your work and home?
@ligemst a little more than 3 miles
i'm going to really cut back on buying sweets with in the next month . The job is stressing me out which makes me eat sometimes. it's hard to get away from it even at home i have to deal with my mother which she doesn't make things easy.
i did walk home from work. it was a good walk kind of hot but i did manage to be in the shade for most of it. unfortunately it's going to get cooler for several days but i still might take a shorter walk.
@markgamer I want to walk more before the weather gets too hot here. Glad you are walking and nice to see you on here!
I'm going to walk to or from work sometimes. It's over 3 miles. I'm also going to really cut back on the sweets by the beginning of May. I know there's lots of healthy choices. I just have to find them.
@markgamer Have you started the walking to/from work yet?
@ligemst I walked about 1/2 way my friend saw me and gave me a ride the rest of the way. I had to do something with my mother and since she was going somewhere it had to be done soon. I will do the whole way soon.
@markgamer It's a start. :)
Who are you closest to in your family?
@fredvoorhies I'm guessing you're talking about parents & siblings? Or does that include husband and kids? If it's my husband & kids, I'm closest to my husband, then my son, then my daughter. If it's the family I grew up in, I'm closest to my dad, but my mom is a close 2nd.
@ligemst it includes everyone or anyone you want to.
Do you have any friends who you can't figure out?
@fredvoorhies I really try not to figure out my friends too much. People are the way they are for a reason or because they choose to be. Not judging. I can't hardly sometimes figure myself out, so why would I want to figure out someone else? LOL.
@ligemst LMAO i know what you mean i just sometimes want my friend to open up more to me I've known him for years and sometimes he seems very distant.
@fredvoorhies I think I'm the friend people can't figure out lol I'm just quite reserved for different reasons. I was part of this student group and one of the guys wrote a story with everyone from the group playing a role, and he gave everyone nicknames as to how he saw them. I was "Anne the Mysterious", carrying around a fairy tale book.. ha!!!
How do you feel about your job? What do you think of the company?
@markgamer Don't have a job at the moment, but the jobs I worked before were fine. I had a temporary job that involved an evening shift and I did find out this is nothing for me. I'd start at 19:00 and be done at 1:00, but often we were running late and it would be at least 1:30 before we could go home. So before I was home and in my bed it'd be at least 3:00. Don't do well on a schedule like that and I prefer day work. Never had anything to complain about the companies I worked for.
@markgamer I am currently a stay-at-home-wife/mom and usually I love my job. It's 24/7, but I have a lot of flexibility. It doesn't pay monetarily, but I get the joy of really creating an inviting, safe home environment for my husband and kids, as well as guests.
Previous to this, I was a professional mechanical engineer working for big corporate America. I retired from engineering at 38-39 yrs old, after 15 yrs because I really wanted to spend more time with my kids.
I think every company I worked for during my 15 yrs in Corporate America taught me a great deal. Three of the 4 companies were Fortune 100 or 500 companies. One was a small mom-pop company. Each were in different industries. I learned a great deal and was appreciative of the experience it gave me, as well as that I could make it as a female in a predominantly male oriented, good ole boy world.
There were fair and unfair things that happened during my career. I've had to suck up some things in order to stay an engineer and play with the big boys. I learned how to still be deeply feminine, maintain my identity without beating that into anyone and I could hold my own against all my male counterparts without lording it over them.
I saw women engineers who didn't appreciate they were women, or how tough it was in a male dominated world, so when they got to a certain place, they would really be awful people to work for or with because they had to prove they were better. You can be better, but you don't have to beat it into others to make them think so.
One company allowed me as a woman to advance far and do a great deal. The other 3 companies were very old school and a woman just couldn't be as good as a man, but I just used my intelligence, good communication, many of the things I learned from Dale Carnegie to win people to my side and produce amazing results.
In the end, no matter how much money I made, nothing could compete with my "Mother's Heart" to be with my children, to play with them, to teach them, to tuck them in at night, to pray with them, to be there for them in a way I could not working long hours as a lead engineer.
No company you work for will be perfect, not even the company you own and run. Be grateful for the job and if you hate your job, then leave and get a different job. I was tired of engineering and wanted to work in a different field. So I spent nearly $100K in educating and preparing for the next thing I would do, which I will be embarking on soon.
Wishful thinking, complaining, whining gets you nowhere. I have found if you don't like what you're doing, at least you're getting paid for it and while you are, set your plans in motion to do something different. This may take time and lots of patience. Mine is taking years to accomplish, but if you want it badly enough, you'll do what it takes to get there.
Lastly, if you don't like your employer, don't whine about it. Do something (legal and non-harmful) about it towards what you want to do. I see many people complain about their jobs and honestly find it being ungrateful. When you signed on, you said you would do the job. Sometimes it does stink.
Make and create opportunities for yourself. I have learned something and am grateful for every job I had ever . . . that included when I was working for myself doing yard clean ups, picking up dog poop, working in a grocery store, working for UPS in a hot hub, etc.
Sometimes being a SAHW/M is thankless. When I get in that mode, I make myself begin thinking about the alternative or when things were really bad. Voila!! The grateful feeling and attitude returns pretty quickly.
@markgamer depends. Is my company reading? ;)
How is your 2017 going so far? Any good news so far or coming up soon?
@wyverndust Oh wow you live in Dallas I didn't know this. I followed a legal case that was based there back in 2013. Lol anyway, I'm wondering if she's going to come back. She probably does know about the return of this here site, I'd imagine. Lol or maybe she doesn't, and has no idea! Maybe next time we can have the thing in Portland?
@hopeslife that would be wonderful!
@wyverndust that would be good to go to but i won't be able since i'm going on a vacation before that maybe next time
@markgamer if I hear of any more get togethers I will let you know.
Has anyone gotten a spam message on this site? I know this isn't our site completely but doesn't check on who joins.
@markgamer yes l just got a spam nessage l reported it to the bosses!
@hopeslife There was an item about this on tv last month. Apparently in The Netherlands alone 12,6 milion euro is being 'earnt' by scammers yearly. A couple of thousand of people fall for it, average damage is 5000 euro. I was very surprised too, but seeing those numbers it does work and these are only from own country. Sadly enough I think there are people with mild intelectual disability that don't realize this is a scam. They're easy victims and the perpretators don't care.
But yeah, I also got one and don't know how to report it.
@rainbowssparks I reported it via email. They replied that it's deleted and that a way to report a profile will come soon!
@rainbowssparks Wow that's a lot!
@hopeslife Yes, isn't it? I was surprised as well, but apparently it pays off sending out 1000s of e-mails, somebody will bite.
i would like some advice and i really have no idea what to do i just found a friend is in detox. i don't know which 1 or what for. Should i be mad because he felt he couldn't trust me and he stole some money or happy that's he getting help? Also how do you think i should handle when he gets out? I'm not looking for anything specific. I really have no idea because i never though this would happen. Any advice wud be great.
@fredvoorhies be happy that he's getting help. And try to be as supportive as you can, within limits. Perhaps don't lend any more money until the previous amount is repaid, but be supportive in other ways.
@aenea good advice hopefully i can do that .
the doctor wants me to go back on the medicine that can affect my stomach for my skin i'm hoping she can find something else. i already have too many digestive problems
I went to a round table at work. At them the employees get to make suggestions for improvements. I made several . Of course i have no idea if any of them will be taken but at least they listened. I don;t know how Amazon is so successful.
this supervisor at work won't learn my name when ever she asks me to move or something she says friend like it so hard to look at my nametag it's really annoying Mark isn't a hard name
sometimes i do overdo about Amazon but i did put for a schedule change and it was rejected completely . I don't expect to get exactly what i want but i should have some say in my hours.
i really don't think the people in charge know what they're doing. it said flex up on the board an hour. They didn't change it at break but we went home at the normal time . I don't mind but when they do want us to stay they should call or email before hand. We're not there slaves or however they want to think of us. Just because we're there doesn't mean they own us,
part of the problem is coming home to my mother. i don't mind helping her but she acts too needy and it's mainly because she wants go out all the time after being tired from work i have to do this that and everything else it seems for her i wish i had the money to move out and my brother would help
i really don't like Amazon. All the time flex down because there's too many people. there still packages. it ridiculous to go home early.
i really want to get away for a day or 3 by Labor Day hopefully i can find someplace cheap maybe even with Jeff if he wants 2
I'm going to try and take a weekend away in the fall. i hope to even if i have to myself.
i wish i could win money so i could do it now or at least find a full time job with better pay so soon
a few more days then winter is over still working on saving money so i can stay from winter for good
warm weather would definitely help my skin and maybe my allergies 2
i hate the winter and the fact that it's closer to 4 months. I would like to go somewhere it's always high 50's to mid 70's
i'm going to start the book Piercing either today or tomorrow. It described as a Japanese version of a David Lynch movie
i finished the book . It's an easy read . Now i'm reading Bare Bones. It's interviews with Stephen King over the years.
I took out a book called Mary and Ted and Rhoda and Lou It's about the MTM show. It's worth reading so far. If your fan look for it.
i'm going and start reading every day again the weather getting warmer so i will be able to get out every day in a few weeks
I haven't been reading nearly as much the past few weeks. i've been feeling kind of down . I don't know if it's the job , the weather or something else .
After saving, it will be sealed for 2 years. Are you sure you wrote everything you want?
