It feels good to finally play some board games again :unsmith:

I finally got to try a few games of the Aliens board game (Another Glorious Day in the Corps) with a friend, and put my painted models to use.





Of course, we got overrun because we didn’t work fast enough, and Newt ran away from the marines into the far corner of the board as a xeno hoard was closing in :laffo:



Ripley had already been lost, tunnels were appearing near our characters, there were more blips on the motion tracker (plus the xenos that we could actually see, pictured above)…it was a gloriously brutal mess. Each alien you see in the pic is on a stack, so there’s at least 2 aliens on every tile (and up to 5).

Of course, Newt remained unrescued as the marines got their brain-meat sampled and Bishop got torn apart :haw:

That's pretty cool man!

I officially passed 65 pounds lost and weigh 250 for the first time in 10 years.

If I can keep it up (and I have every reason to think I can), I’ll enter weight territory I haven’t been in since college, some 15ish years ago.

220 is my high school weight so there’s that to look forward to as well. A “healthy” weight for someone my age and height is about 190ish (and that’s my end goal. Finally feels within reach and :feelsgood:)

you give me hope for myself if i just get on it

So at a vet town hall I chatted up this vet who was funny as gently caress, kept it all jokes with her. I was about to hand her the card with my number and “call me =)” written on the back too. And she asked me if I wanted her number before I even reached in my back pocket to do the thing. I'm like “yes how did you know!?!?” her: “because we’re both retarded!!!” anyway I'm taking her out for drinks on Wednesday. McNally queue up the sixer because you know I had to tell it exactly how it went down. Should be a fun time. Wish me luck.

You are welcome to use the line thar got my wife to agree to date me-
"I want to take you to a nice seafood dinner, and then spank you with a Hot Wheels track."

I’m reserving or modifying this line because I feel like I can get away with it. I'll save it for when we’ve both had a few drinks in us.

The opener was me getting confused about something that was said. This is how the jokes got started.

“I'm sorry, someone wants to say grace?”

Blah blah blah, apparently that's not the case.

“What's your name” (to me)

“Definitely not grace.”

(insert roaring laughter from a buncha vets at the table, myself included)

“Nah for real I'm me, what about you. What's your name.”

“Definitely not grace.”

Go ahead because unless I'm mistaken she’d probably thrive on at least one or two of those.

I don't plan on staying active on the forums. Just wanted to drop in and say hello.

I have been flourishing.

My previous project at work was COVID-centric and became such a drag on my mental health that I checked out about halfway through last year. I recently got put on another project and I have never thrived so much professionally since I was a dumbass soldier in the Army.

Last year I did so much work on myself that I feel like a completely different person.

I have been so happy that I feel like I am in a prolonged manic state.

A few things I did that I hope others will consider doing: get the gently caress off of social media. All of it. Even these forums. I don't care that it is the only way you talk to your Aunt Betty from Norway. Get her phone number, her WhatsApp or whatever, and log the gently caress off. You are torturing yourself and ruining your mental health over it. And for what? To stay informed? gently caress that. Be healthy. You aren't going to stop the bad poo poo from happening anyway.

Psychodelic therapy. TwoFinger and FV helped me navigate some of this. They got to receive a bunch of my messages while I was figuring myself out, and learning who I am and what makes me tick. One of the most major realizations I had is that I have an identity crisis, one that I suspect a lot of men struggle with, and is probably the driving factor behind a lot of my issues:

I had no idea who I was, I only knew what I wanted the world to see me as.

Imagine every choice you make being influenced by what everyone else thinks, from what you wear to where you go out to eat. I didn't even know I was doing it. You probably don't even know that you are doing it either. My entire life was co-dependance and a lie. I had no interests or hobbies, I only had other peoples' interests and hobbies.

Now? I pretty much date myself. I buy myself stuff. I take myself out to dinner. I go to the movies by myself.

For a while my golden rule was to ask myself if I would do something without someone -- for example, if no one goes to dinner with me, will I still go? If I wouldn't do it by myself, I forced myself to do it anyway. I made a day of the week that I go to dinner (Wednesdays because the crowds aren't crazy) and I go with or without somebody. At first it was awkward. But now it is something I look forward to every week.

Having something to look forward to can make all of the difference.

I cannot stress this enough: GET THE gently caress OFF OF SOCIAL MEDIA. IT IS NOT HELPING YOU. YOU ARE NOT MORE INFORMED FOR OR CONNECTED BEING ON IT. YOU ARE NOT MORE CONNECTED BECAUSE YOU HAVE AN INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT. THIS WILL BE THE BIGGEST FAVOR YOU COULD DO FOR YOUR MENTAL HEALTH. I AM SO loving SERIOUS, THIS FEELS GREAT.

If most of your social media usage is to be miserable rather than ~*~stay connected~*~ with people, then you're just using that as an excuse to stay on social media. Addict behavior.

And keeping an active account but "never logging on" is a fool's bet.

Just delete the loving things.

I mean he's right. IDK if I'd take the dive on SA because there's a lot more to it than GiP or FYAD or GBS or CSPAM or anywhere else that would drive you insane. But if you need to bounce out bro, more power to ya. Live your best life. Thanks for getting me high when I was in DC to see the NDRB that day and being a great host, sparking me up at your apartment. Take care of yourself.
