"Good things that happened to you today?", 7th Nov 2019, 10:33 PM #1

I feel I have been being a bit too negative as of late. So as what is essentially a sequel to this thread, what are some things that you are happy that happened today?



I'll start, so my aunt works for a friend who has her own company, and she was called at the last possible second to essentially set up a hall and serve food for some family members after they were through with their attendance to a funeral. She ask me to tag along.



She ends up panicking when she realizes nothing was set up and that we needed to do everything from scratch. Fortunately, I used to work as an assistant to my other aunt who owned her own catering business. I as well, was a 92G(food service specialist) in the U.S. military. I was able to help my aunt get everything set up and even better, family members of her friend ended up helping us serve everyone the food.


It was a fun little miracle we pulled off, and we all ended up leaving with a revitalized sense of purpose. My aunt as well gained a bit of experience working under pressure and learning how to cater.




What about you guys, have anything to share?

I cleaned my bicycle today, a vintage Sekai. Can't ride it because it's raining, but still, got to appreciate the simple pleasures in life.

The sense of pride and accomplishment, in beating my personal best record of comic pages per year (original project that is).

Finally I got this story pushed further than ever before. Goin' beyond plus ultra. So much so, it's act 3 already.

Finally a thread for me.

I have a very dumb luck. That's why when one week ago I went with my friends to buy some dice to the local gaming shop we ale got keyforge decks for free (I mean we posed for a promotional photo for the event organisator but). Today we went to a local meet up to learn how to play it and just play it. I mentioned to the shop owner that I want to make a magic the gathering deck (my friend plays it and she wanted to teach me) but idk how and she just looked at me at was like "okay" and handed me a new black/white deck for free.

It's very pretty.

Anyway one week ago I had 0 gaming cards and now I have 120 total for free.
Also everyone is so nice to me there and I don't know anyone except my two friends holy shit my eyes are teary.

That is insane, 0 to 120 just for having good connections. You were very lucky. Good luck learning the game, once you get into Magic, it is super fun.

My copy of 'The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek' arrived today so I started reading it, nothing better than curling up with a good book and a nice hot cuppa.

October just blended all together for me because I'm working on an animation at the moment which is many hours. I was putting off a head turn but finished the rough out and it came out pretty decent which was nice.

So one of my coworker's daughter reads my webcomic, and he told me that she's "drawing like me" with panels and stuff and keeps asking him "how do i make the bubbles"

So they're gonna work on that and then he's gonna show it to me.

A couple of days ago I found an official-looking brown envelope in the post. On closer inspection it turned out to be from the Inland Revenue. My fingers shook so badly with dread that I could scarcely manage to open the thing.

Imagine my surprise, then, when my eyes lit upon the word REFUND! Nothing could have been more unexpected (except of course the Spanish Inquisition).

Well, on reading the letter, I discovered that the tax people had miscalculated so they needed to make a repayment. While the amount isn't huge it'll pay for a few little luxuries. The only downside is that since I don't have an online tax account I have to wait a few weeks for the cheque. Never mind, it's still a nice little Christmas bonus.

Today....

1.Finally got my pc up and running properly after having to reformat the whole thing due to a trojan virus of some kind. Even got my comic pages back up.

2.Fixed my bike which was giving me all kinds of problems for a few weeks. Hard work but finally fixed.

So yea, a frustrating week that turned good by today`s end. :)

Done working for the day. And the good thing is out of all the tasks I set for myself this work week, I got all but two completed--and one of those two things I'm about 1/2 done doing.

I'm still a panicky mess worried I can't get everything done in time for December, BUT I feel good about the progress I made, and have the weekend task list and next week's list ready to go (weekend stuff if optional, as all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.) Time to p*ss around on forums or play some Stardew Valley B-)

I said something to someone and it took off, rather than being a one-and-done, best part is, they have no idea it was me who said it. Now I feel influential and cool.

Also, I managed to get a cup unstuck from inside my favorite cup without breaking either.

And I have the house to myself on a beautiful morning, which puts me in a good mood.
