Maxo is awesome.
I couldn’t stray across your wall without wishing you a happy birthday.
I hope the coming times are a lot better than the days you’ve had recently.
I’m about to start the thread again. The first part will be easy. Giving people the lowdown, requesting ideas, and getting a list of people who want to participate. Jump in when you feel froggy.
Also, a “suite,” huh? Very nice…
Heh. Well, I have unofficially taken a position in Atlanta. So even though I’ll be about an hour away, I’ll still be closer than I am now.
In any case, I’ll be up at some point.
I’m going to be busy from 9-11p with another online project, and it may last longer than 11p, so I can’t say if I’d make the upper bound on that range. But I can always start the thread at 1a if I have to, and then I can help organize it from there.
Mk. We’ll aim for a Friday (tomorrow) night pregame for a by-Sunday midnight kickoff.
I didn’t think my methods to be all that special, but I guess I have been dealing with random assignment for a few years. But once you start the thread, I’ll either use the same process or pick out another one that ensures users are randomly paired with another user. It’ll be fun. I may even pull out the Excel worksheets in addition to a randomizing site to make certain that pairs in the last thread aren’t repeated. I believe that once you give everyone the general idea (i.e., being assigned to a random user and sharing your musical tastes with them once per day for about a week or less), the thread will get back to what it once was.
I’ll only request that you not use the word “Boogaloo” in the thread title…
Wow. It’s been a while since you’ve participated in the forums. I guess I haven’t been as active myself very recently. But the discussion in the Damsels everywhere thread has my sociology sense tingling. I’ll have to catch up and see if I can contribute anything novel.
In any case, I came by to welcome you to the site, but you’re no Brand New Member in practicality. So I’ll just say thanks for contributing to civil but opinionated discussion. I love to see it, even if I don’t participate in it.
I want to do a playthrough with a female avatar, but I’m still playing one of…three…off-and-on, so I’ve only progressed to Chapter 18 on the physical game card version.
But I need to finish so I can play the DLC…
Alright. I’ll go ahead and make the thread sometime later on Saturday. If you want to make it, then I’ll see it before I post another thread for it.
Any rules or stipulations you want to add?
(And night now.)
Yeah, why not? Just let me know via wall post or PM when you want to get started/when you get started. From there, I can start the thread or give you specific details on how to run it and be there to do it with you.
The rules are pretty simple. Just make sure that each “buddy” is assigned to another “buddy.” After that, just make sure that each buddy is getting music from their assigned buddy. You can be pretty creative after that.
Oh, it’d be fun to mix things up again and have another go at it. However, I don’t like to revive my own ideas, so I might suggest you take up the torch. Of course, you’re busy with your own tasks…
Maybe I will do a Music Buddies II some time. Can’t hurt to try.

God’s plans are good and will be to our liking if we only align our wishes with His. Of course, not being able to tell the future, we have to have faith that these plans will come to fruition. Again, if we believe God is who He says He is, then the plans are as good as completed in our minds. I think that faith will help us bring His plans for his kingdom on earth about. Even if God does it on His own, it should be our desire to be a part of it if we love Him and want to serve Him.
As for the job hunt, I called my friend, but she didn’t respond. I did well in my interview, but I wasn’t offered the job outright. Their decision is pending my references which I will request tonight/send to those references in the morning tomorrow.
My brother is out of school now, so his issues are resolved for the time being. He’s more concerned about the students than himself, really. As for any other prayer requests, I guess all I’ll ask for now if that God’s Will to be done.
Thanks much for asking.
On the game card, I’m pretty far in. I think I’ll switch back over to it until I can figure out what’s wrong with my digital download (I was thinking about giving it to a friend, but she’s going to be busy with another game for the forseable future, so I’ll just finish it from that medium.) I’m on Chapter 17 on the game card.
As for the problem itself,
I never should have married Anna. Tharja is the canon wife for my avatar in my mind…I’m so sorry, gurrrrrrrl! I’ve called Nintendo about it. They just said to download it from a better connection that doesn’t go weak so often. But the only connection I have that extended access to is weak, so I’ll have to wait for a while to try to download it from a better one.
It goes very slowly. I’ve been playing the downloaded version, but I keep hitting some odd error that makes the game unplayable after so many hours of playing. So between me wanting to ship all of the units with someone and that issue, I haven’t finished the game (which means I haven’t even touched the DLC. I want to finish the game before getting to that.)
I actually bought the physical game card too, but I want to get the downloaded version to work. I think I just need to download it from a better connection.
I totally was ready to move my units to pair up with each other when your profile music started to play.
No, not at all. I just figured you were frustrated with the connection issues in the IRC. But I understand why you’d be frustrated with your current position as well. I can be made upset, but I’m generally pretty hard to offend. We’re cool.
Sure. I’ve…got an issue of sorts that may make me a little more sketchy on scheduled matters, so forgive me if I’m missing, but are you available at about 9p Central/10p Eastern? I can PM you how to get in the IRC and chat.
I’ll go ahead and make a prayer request for me and my friend (since I tend to forget to ask about requests). We both have separate job interviews this week for pretty nice positions. She really wants her position, so I’d ask that you’d pray for her to get it. As for me, I would love the job. It would offer a lot more than a paycheck for me. I’d get to be closer to friends/make new friends, I might be able to get some loan forgiveness, and I’d be close to my family still without being too close. But I’ll only ask that you pray for God’s Will to be done in regards to the interview. Many thanks, General.
As for the verses, I think it’s appropriate to prayer requests. If there’s something that’s out of your control, then present it to God through Jesus Christ. Do your best to let go of that worry. If you believe God is who He says He is and that He will do what He has said, then you’ll find peace even with that uncertain situation looming.
It’s why I usually pray for God’s Will to be done when it comes to my own wishes. I’m a flawed human being with my own vices (some of which I’m not even aware of.) So I tend to pray for wisdom to know when my own sin and flesh is getting in the way of wanting to do what God wants or with doing my part to execute His Will. I think that comes with setting your desires aside as being secondary to God’s. You may be worried about being unemployed right now, but maybe God has something else for you. We can’t ever see that future with our own eyes, but we have to believe that there is something better to come when things aren’t so happening right now.
In hindsight, I don’t know if I could have gotten a job even just a month ago. I still had some concerning effects from an illness, and there were days and nights when I may not have been able to go to work or do well at work anyway. I’m still not at 100%, but I’m better than where I was when I first started looking for work. Maybe it was God’s Will for me to not get those jobs because of that healing that was still occurring.
Once we have a time set, I can tell you what to do. It’s usually pretty simple.
I should be free at any point tomorrow outside of unscheduled requests. If not tomorrow, then I have other times that are free over the weekend.
Well, my schedule’s finally gotten busy in the past couple of weeks (and I’m sure you’re even busier), but I’m sure we can find time to chat a bit. PM’s, wall posts, IRC…just let me know.
