January's over, February's here, summer seems nearer

Post by Jorge22 » 01 Feb 2018 17:29

Hi everyone. :D

I've got a topic here (you can say it's not February-related, whatever, there aren't any limits to human imagination), which is, well, you do know how a forum works, I assume... There's a certain topic and it's only natural for people to deviate a little here and there because the topic itself somehow relates to that slight curve that's only normal when people (not machines) are talking.
Still, from time to time there comes some warning: "That's off-topic, let's get back on topic", "Wasn't this thread supposed to be about...?", "You people are destroying the topic" - you all know what I mean. It's obvious that keeping things in one such straightjacket isn't the exact best for keeping forums alive. I think. And I'm not at all speaking of turning anything into chaos, that's not me, I've known how to behave for ages by now.
So, that's it. Just a little food for the thought.

Happy February! ;)

We had several warm and sunny days at the end of January(kind of early spring even birds started to sing early in the morning) but now we dropped back to winter temperatures and the forecast says low temperatures and snow for the next days. Yesterday I spent most of the evening with watching Videos on Youtube(from older movies like Karate Kid or American Shaolin) and had been listening to music from the 90`s like Culture Beat or Scooter and many more. Nice memories came back. :2thumbsup: :jump2:

I think every month should have a specific food assigned to it, so far I have:

February: Pancakes
April: Chocolate Eggs
October: Pumpkin
December: Turkey

I tend to stick to certain foods for a particular season. This has been my best winter healthwise, I'm really grateful! It's cold in Maryland, but as long as my car can go through the snow, I can deal with cold weather with my experiences.

At work, there is a mix of classic rock, pop music from the late 90s-early 00s, current pop from what I heard from an Atlanta radio station, and US patriotic music. :D

Other than that, I'm maintaining stamina for work, strength training, martial arts, and family life.

I'm happy I'm making progress in my strength levels, and my self-confidence.

@SuzanneJack

I lived in Georgia between June and November. While the hobbies were great, and I was in good standing with the townspeople, the job didn't work out.

Living in Idaho and Georgia did help me figure out how to feel rooted in a place, and the type of career I really want long-term though.

So now I finally feel rooted in Maryland, and I have the resources I need to succeed. :)

You should say "Single malt" - nothing else counts :)

Single malt, I agree. I do like Cardhu (from the affordable ones; although I liked it better when I smoked - that's about 7 years ago. It doesn't go so well with a vape, not even a tobacco vape).
