    Finished my part of a really cool project last week!!

    (Can't tell you all more than that, sorry...)

    Looks like we'll also be mixing my band's EP over Easter Weekend, and I might be joining up with a symphonic metal band to do session vocals, if they ever get back to me... :viking:

    HAHAHAHA - well done!!

    I got some great news financially today meaning that 70K next year is definitely on the table !! (And yes I know you all thought overwise but it was REALLY looking unlikely that we would do it next year).

    So rather than being a 10% chance, I would say we are at least a 50% chance now !!

    I just found out at work that I have a week's more vacation time banked up than I thought!

    Now, not only is 70K 2017 happening, but so is a longer road trip to Warped Tour this year :D. We're going to do two dates, so twice the fun, twice the bands, twice the strategically timed day drinking!!

    This is super-duper late, but in April I accepted a new job with a very large pay raise and relocated to Boston.

    I was previously user SaraMarie here, but even with asking the system for a new password, it locked me out for too many login attempts. Oh well.

    Last year, just about two months before the 2016 cruise, I was let go from my job with little savings and in a miserable situation about my slumlord and shitty neighbors. I had a bad time on the cruise due to a combo of being sick, having bad cramps and also not positive about my money/work situation I was facing back home. When I came home, I got well and then buckled down on finding new work. A fellow cruiser, Katie, let me stay with her in MA and helped me find a new place to live once I had a job offer. It was such a big help!

    So I'm really happy to be settled in nicely here in Boston and enjoying my new life. I have a nice place to live that's quiet for me and my dog, and I can take the train out to lots of shows!

    I've decided to give the cruise another chance, I think. Also, I wanted to know if anyone from these boards is in Boston, I know we're a lot of people from outside the US here, but I figured I'd ask around.

    Someone dropped a lure at the Pokestop by my office.

    And by "by my office", I mean "I can activate it from my desk". Goodbye productivity.

    While I'm bummed that The Sirens cancelled their gig next month in Finland (with Nightwish, Arch Enemy, Sonata Arctica and Silentium), I couldn't be any happier about their replacement. Delain!

    I transferred to a new work location in Reno, NV where I'll be moving to next month. It includes a nice raise which will increase my chances of booking for sure... :shred:

    I'm trying to get over my dumb attitude of avoiding concerts (went to my first two metal concerts this year) and thinking I would never fit in and also trying to get in 70000tons next year so... Yeah I'm rejoicing my achievments and efforts somehow (?).

    Awesome things I've accomplished this year:
      *Peacefully divorced out of a 4 year married relationship that was unhealthy for both of us
      *Left an extremely dysfunctional employer, moved to a new state, found a new job that I like more, pays me more, and is lower stress
      *Bought a 4 unit apartment building; I now get paid about $600 a month to live in my home (lifelong goal!)
      *Successfully transitioned off antidepressants
      *Gained back 10 lbs I lost from stress and antidepressants
      *Going on 70K!!!
    I feel like my entire life has turned a bright new corner in the last 10 months :D

    Well 2012 was such an awesome time I swore to myself I would make it an annual tradition. But when booking time for 2013 rolled around I wasn't able to draft anyone from my groups in Seattle or Portland to travel with me, and so chickened out. Then I was in a relationship that progressively extracted most of my money and energy. Now that I'm out of that crap, I decided to jump in the deep end and not care if I knew closely was going.

    From what I can tell, only an acquaintance I don't know too well from the Seattle scene is going this year out of everyone I know in Portland and Seattle metal. I think this will be a good challenge for me to will myself into having a good time, challenges or not, and meet new peoples. My hetero-lifemate is really jealous, so I plan to enroll him into my party next year when his financial situation is improved.

    I've heard great things about Halo Top from my friends, I'll have to try some if I get the chance. Congrats on your success in weight loss!

    Yesterday I weighed in 3 lbs down from my recent high. Gotta eat harder! I have a big thing of steak and potatoes for lunch today, plus spinach salad. It might seem silly, but adding weight and keeping it on is a struggle for people who are naturally skinny.

    ^^ Sweet!

    Finished my first day working at the new brewery West Coast.
    Also biked there and back, it being only some 15 minutes of biking makes sense, my legs tell me I'm not used to it though!

    Feels good to be at a place where I'm valued as a worker, by qualifications, by experience and for what I can bring.
    Lokk forward to getting into it loads more over the coming weeks.

    I'm rejoicing because...

    GNOFF FRIENDED ME ON FACEBOOK!!! :heavydrink: :heavydrink:

    Oh, and I'm also rejoicing because there is a big Information Technology security conference being held in San Francisco the week after 70k 2017, and it is looking very likely that work will let me attend and cover the associated costs!!

    So if it all works out - fly over for the cruise, spend a week after the cruise in the US, spend another week in San Fran for the conference, fly home and work will cover the costs of my time in San Fran and the flights to the US and back!!!!!!

    Update on my recent bitching regarding our flights to Miami. Finally got our money back from the travel agency for the cancelled reservation (due to Virgin Atlantic changing their schedules so we couldn't make it to our connecting flight). So, while that kinda sucks, I'm happy because Finnair has a campaign for direct flights to Miami. 550 euros per person, which is dirt cheap when they normally go for closer to 800 euros.

    They won't give you a credit for the price difference?

    I looked up the price the day before and it was 550 euros per person, and when I went to book them I noticed the price had dropped to 450 euros. So I got the flights for the cheaper price. Hence this thread. :beerwink:
