My teachers from Taiko want to train me to be on the performance team. I'm elated, but at the same time, this news is pretty bittersweet.
They basically want to set up a meeting with me and talk to me about what all this entails... my heart's racing right now. I almost cried when I got the voice message on my phone. I've never been considered good at ANYTHING before, and this is seriously a dream come true. Ever since I first saw Fushu Daiko play, I've wanted to get up on stage and play too! And now I have the opportunity to do it, and it scares me.
 
My issue is that I have to put school first, and my hobbies second...
I just hope I can both get my schoolwork done (to the level of completion I need to excel) AND train 4+ days a week for performance team. I'm really crossing my fingers on this one. Something tells me it might not work out...

But still, I'm honored to have been selected for this. I never thought my hard work would get me anywhere.

You'll be fine, BimR. Trust me on this one.

I made my will save today versus attempting to start workplace romances last night.

However, when a young, college-aged ebony goddess looks deep into your eyes and tells you "I wish someone would teach me to play D&D", that's got to be worth some circumstance penalties :p.
She hasn't come to crush your bones, nor tear your flesh
She has come to steal your sanity with just one glance

You know you should still teach her, right?

Thank you, thank you!

I'm super excited, but also super nervous since I've got about 1 month to learn 2 songs and then perform them flawlessly along with songs I already know... Regardless, this is gonna be so much fun!

Sidenote: I can't believe I'm doing this since I've already got a very busy schedule...it just got 10 times busier.

Also: What's the harm in teaching the chick Dnd? As long as you can keep rolling your will saves, you two could have a lot of fun playing together as friends. :D

People usually think that I've lost my mind. I haven't lost it, I know exactly where it is: the gutter.

My body is a temple. That is why I make chocolate sacrifices in it every day.

Taking a college class again for the first time in way too many years!  :bounce  If it goes well I might finally finish my damned degree.

Won 32 euros with a 20 cent coin. Go go slot machines!
Ja vuosia myöhemmin
kalvas kaksikko lattialla motellin tihrustelee,
kun sama keiju katossa leijailee.
Kyselevät: "Mikä päivä nyt on?
Tiedätkö sen?"
Kuiskaten laulaa keiju:
"Tämän elämän viimeinen."

Experimental chili was a success. I knew potatoes were a good idea. Also apple cider and cinnamon, because sweet chili is awesome.
So you end up stuck in an endless loop, unable to act, forever.

In retrospect, much like Keanu Reeves.

The 'inventory discrepancy' at work has increased to 1.6 million with the latest count.  And I am one of the very few who isn't a suspect at all due to my reputation for blunt honesty (i.e. i'm a sarcastic bastard).   :lol


Looks like there's some firings down the line.  With luck they'll clear out the serious addicts and the rest of the pedophiles.

What I really mean: I want to fucking go too!

Well, Eluveitie is coming to Florida, too, according to their website: http://www.eluveitie.ch/en/?view=live

edit: Though I do realize Orlando may be a bit far depending on where in FL you live.

The... uh... what?

With some few exceptions virtually all of my coworkers are thieves, serious drug addicts, alcoholics, pedophiles, date rapists, or ex cons.  I've been trying to find another job but no one has been hiring here for years.  And my bosses don't seem to care.  Well at least they didn't.  Now that their butts on the line for the missing inventory im assuming that'll change.

Hell dude, with cohorts like that you should become a crime boss.
