Marko's Catering is a full service catering service offering great food at lower than expected prices. Being the "new kids in town" we feel we offer something new and different to the mix. We do catering in Milwaukee https://markospizzas.com/catering/ ! That dinner or birthday party, you know that's too small or intimate for the big grazers on the catering fields is just what Marko's Catering wants. We specialize in functions from 1-100 people, usually too small for the higher profit margin crowd. Though we are small, we are very experienced in all phases of the business. From the Chefs to the wait staff we are enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
We work with you to decide the needs of your department and then develop a plan for success. Some work requires us to visit you onsite, other work may be done over the phone & email. We do not have any preset packages - all work is custom developed for you.
AH it's been too long since I've written one of these.
For those not acquainted with my 2000-word rambly rants over pubescent highschool drama, I direct you to just about any 2012 entry in this blog. There is some absolute GOLD if you can drag your dicks through the very jagged, painful glass that is 15-year old me. If you don't feel like educating yourselves on the inner thoughts and passive-aggressive fights of me, some extra-juicy ones are here and here. By the way, I had the BIGGEST straight girl crush on 'M' in the first link. The more you know.
I am so thankful that I documented every facet of my high school life so I can look back and think "ha, thank god that's in the pas-waitnothinghaschanged".
For those who saw the title and furiously rolled their eyes whilst excitedly clicking the link to my blog because they've been deprived of dramatic me for too long, YOU'RE IN LUCK.
Except, this isn't dramatic on the same level as my high school drama. It's a bit more grown-up, a bit less out-there. It's a bit too real, and a bit (a lot) sad. And I'm coming to you guys because you always give it to me straight, no fiddlesticks or sugarcoating, and I really need an unbiased outsiders perspective on the matter. This is gonna be a long one, so I'm gonna wrap the body in spoiler tags. The TL;DR is at the bottom. I even made some pretty dot points not only to make it clear for you guys, but also to lay it all out for me.
It's about my long-term girlfriend. And I'm torn between leaving her, or staying together.
TL;DR - Having a lot of doubts about my relationship, which over time has been overcome with incompatibilities. We both are still young and immature, which leads to some glaring issues. However, we are still in love, and have many more good times than bad.
Reasons to break up:
I want to date around and explore
I can do anything without inhibitions (friends, activities)
I want to be single when I go to Canada
VERY uneven sex drives
Improve myself to be someone who can be attentive, supportive and sensitive
Find someone else with the same passions as me (gaming, TV series, media) who I *might* end up happier with
I love her, she’s so kind, caring and loving, and makes me happy. She means a lot to me.
We have many of the same ‘end goals’
Won’t have anyone to talk to every day, life will be much more boring
She’s in a really bad spot right now and needs my support
Breaking off a relationship that is much more good than bad (about 80% good, 20% bad) seems pointless and unnecessary. What would that achieve?
Oh yeah, it looks like I'm going to Canada to work a season at a ski resort in the winter of 2017/2018 when I finish my degree! It's definitely not finalised yet - I haven't been offered a job or bought my plane tickets, but I have started the process of it, and it's looking really good. After the season ends, I plan to go around the country, couch surf a bit, and explore. Any Canadian slammers here who wouldn't mind saying hi to a poor Aussie girl and isn't scared off by my description of me above? :P
Also, sorry about the wall of text again. Big decisions equal big word count in my world!
The first step
Call the maximum number of companies. By phone you can find almost all the information you need, namely:
what profile system are available Windows, its benefits, differences;
what accessories used for windows;
whether produced installation works modern requirements, what materials are used when installing;
the terms of the order, guarantees, terms and conditions;
about the company, availability of licenses and certificates;
organizational matters (how to prepare the apartment, how long will it take, etc.);
cost and what factors influence its change;
Please remember that low price is not a priority in the selection window. High quality cannot be cheap. So do not rush to order a window, enjoying promotions.
Doing such "marketing research", the search range is much narrower, perhaps at this stage You choose a company that will suit You for all criteria.
A visit to the best window installation company in Milwaukee https://allamericanwindow.com/ . Pre-write all your questions be consistent by asking your questions, demand clear answers, don't allow unresolved issues. Usually, serious companies care about their reputation, managers advise on a fairly high technical level and setting the first question You will receive full information about their services. Make sure that the information received by phone reliable: ask the Manager to demonstrate on a sample of the differences of the profile system, which are learned on the phone. A big advantage for those companies that have the sample demonstration of the installation steps and finish, i.e. before the conclusion of the contract you can see with the upcoming installation work and assess its quality.
The comparison in activity from when I joined in 2006 to now is mind boggling. I can't believe it's been ten years. I was looking at my profile seeing what I included and started to realize... it's already been five years since I had relocated nearly exclusively to the minecraft thread! Scrolling down the main page looking at the last activity timestamps gives me a real Rip Van Winkle moment, it's so foreign to me still I just can't help but sigh every time. And then there's Guitarguy still chugging away with his status updates lol. There once was a time where I had to put thought into what time I wanted to publish a blog entry in order to not be quickly pushed onto the second page of blogs. Nowadays, that coveted page contains nearly an entire year's worth of blogging...
I don't know if I've ever said it proper, but thank you. To all of you I've spoken to on here, pleasantly or not, for what you've given me. A lot of who I am as a person was developed here. From the clan forums to the debate room and the forming of the clan chat moderating team to the minecraft server members, you've all given me fond memories and friends that I won't soon forget.
Obligatory latest knife picture
I've got three more on the way but with increasingly more difficult styles so we'll see how it goes.
right now im going into my second year of my bachelor of science
honestly the only reason im in it is because i couldnt find anything else to do and i was already taking math/science in high school so why not
soo yeah the thing is im not passionate about anything at all. i kinda like math cuz im good at it, science im pretty good at too and i dont really mind it that much. only thing i dont want to do for sure is become an engineer/do anything with physics.
what did you guys when you were in a position like this? how did you end up making up your mind and find something to do?
i really like playing basketball but im obviously not good enough to go pro and i do not really want to work in a field of sports cuz i would be too sad its not me playing.
I logged onto RS the other day for some fun afk skilling and starting Gower's Quest. In real life, I started my Master's of Science in Sustainable Management the other day. I'm getting it through the University of Wisconsin's Sustainability MGT online program and it's a very pleasant experience so far. The online portal is organized and provides easy communication access with everyone and the professor, a way to check off tasks I've completed, and it's basically a step above my undergrad degree.
In about two and a half years, I look forward to coming to you all with a neat graduation pic of myself at Lambeau Stadium in Green Bay. Not a packers fan, just had to pick a home campus and Green Bay won the coin flip. ;)
I hope you're all doing well and achieving your goals. Whatcha all doing educationally?
Sooo first up, the whole international exchange thing is canned. Every time I got close to getting it sorted, something would smash it all into tiny little pieces, and I'd start over again. I'm not going to go into details and relive the disappointment, but yeah, after all the effort put into this thing, it didn't work out in the end. I think that's the universe telling me that something mortal would've happened if I went through with it. Welcome to the real world, I guess.
BUT the whole reason I wanted to go on exchange was to spend some time in another country, another environment where I don't know anyone and I get to meet new people, eat new things, have an experience. So, rather than letting the failure get me down, I went in search of more international opportunities, not necessarily to do with my education. The one thing I had in mind for the entirety of uni was working overseas, perhaps in a summer camp or something. But I haven't worked with kids at all, and I'm kinda awkward around them, so maybe not. Some searching led me to the idea of working at a ski resort, and true enough, it's a thing! There are work fairs that go around Australia hiring people to work for ski resorts in Canada (!!), although you have to pay a hefty fee to be guaranteed a position. So, if all works out, I'll take a gap year after I finish uni (in 2018) and work at a ski resort in Canada for about 5 months. I absolutely LOVE skiing, and I miss snow, so this would be a great opportunity. Nothing set in stone yet though.
Another thing I looked at was volunteer opportunities. While searching, I stumbled upon something that perfectly suited my interests, which was volunteering in environmental sustainability in New Zealand. It probably sounds lame and boring to most of you, but I do think it's something that I would enjoy, with me doing something Geography-based and all. Basically, you get sent to Auckland, Christchurch or the more rural areas surrounding those cities. If I get a choice, I'd go to Christchurch - everyone says it's super nice and much better than Auckland. Maybe our resident El Benno11 can give some tips if I get in :P . I've submitted my application, so now it's just twiddling toes till I hear back from them!
Ahh what else has happened. I started and finished Game of Thrones a few weeks ago. Whew, what a masterpiece. Really good stuff. I love talking to people about the series - who's going to end up in the Iron Throne, what's gonna happen to Sansa/Arya, who's gonna finish off Cersei, all the possible theories about the happenings of the remaining 2 seasons. I've just started reading the books too. The last two episodes of season 6 blew me out of the water. Especially the last one - probably my favourite. I don't think I moved for the entire episode. I was too stunned, in my chair, with my jaw on the floor. I kept thinking, did that really just happen?? I'll rave about them day and night, I will.
I also finished the last seasons of Orange is the New Black and Orphan Black. The 4th season of OITNB was pretty disappointing to me tbh, and I was shocked to see that the ratings for the season were some of the best. It never captured me like the first few seasons, and left nothing to look forward to after every episode. Unpopular opinion - it was a boring season. It made me miss the days of bloody tampon sandwich. Orphan Black on the other hand, I think its 4th season was the best of the lot. The episode endings were never cliffhangers, but it still made me want to watch relentlessly into the night. I considered pulling an all-nighter to watch all 10 episodes, but thought it would be better if my mind was at 100% alertness so I could fully drink in every detail, every scene. Can't wait for its 5th and final season next year. I would recommend it to everyone and anyone. Next on my series-to-watch list is The Wire. I've heard good things about it, and it seems like a classic, so why not.
Oh yeah I also went to Sydney for a week in my semester break with bae. The trip did us a lot of good actually - it brought up a lot of unresolved issues that really needed resolving, and they were. Other than that, we had a blast of a time - sightseeing, shopping, doing LOTS of walking and exploring, eating, and playing Pokemon Go (which I'm not super into but she is). We had lots of experiences, including this one night we decided to go out and hit the gay bars, participated in a trivia night where we invited this nice Indian psychiatrist to join our team, proceeded to get hammered, had him drive us home (which, in hindsight, was an idiotic idea and could've gotten us killed, or even worse, kidnapped), and finally took our breakfasts to the sinks and toilets. We stayed in an Airbnb place, hence the 'house'. Never. Again.
I think that about wraps up everything. Oh - one more thing. Is anybody active here good at programming? More specifically Python? I'm taking a pretty advanced course in it (mandatory) this semester and I was rubbish at my easier Python unit a year ago. It would be great to have someone help out this pathetic programmer come assignments, etc.
Adios for now!
I know complaining about Runescape has been cliche for the past 10 years but I think my complaints are slightly different. Runescape (3) is so different from the 2005 game I started playing. People like to complain about things like combat, which I agree is broken, but I have nothing unique to add to that conversation.
Other things maybe I do. For one, the story has jumped the shark. I never cared much about the story but the past few years I have been paying more attention due to writing quest guides or checking quest guides and this has stuck out. For one, there are clear organization issues. There does not appear to be a definitive storyline the developers are following, and interesting developments that could lead to something are scrapped by the next quest in the sixth age storyline because some other developer wants to take it in another direction. Also, the villains keep getting more powerful and everything else, like some missing artifact from an earlier quest, seems unimportant. Now we're dealing with creators of the universe and there's nowhere else to go. Why can't we go back to saving towns from evil wizards?
Besides that, the biggest change has been the community. Back in 2005, it seemed to mostly be populated by casual gamers. Everyone was in it for fun, your average person didn't care too much about training skills to as high as possible, etc. People also played less. Then, a casual player of Runescape would play for a few hours a week; now it seems a casual gamer plays a few hours a day. As someone who has time for maybe 2 hours a week this is a fairly unappealing aspect. The rest of the community is completely different than I am and they are driving the game in a direction I dislike. I'd prefer to go back to playing Castle Wars instead of trying to go for 120 capes. And, to reiterate something people say all the time, the SOF costumes completely ruin the feel of the game. It would be different if there was some way to disable those features, but Jagex doesn't want to do that because the reason people buy those costumes in the first place is to show it off to other players, even if the other players don't care for it.
I think the core of the game is still good. Walking around places that have been fairly untouched, such as Rimmington, is still moderately enjoyable. Other newer features are not as appealing to me. This is not a quitting post but if it weren't for connections I've made in the game I would have probably left by now. The only Runescape version that still interests me is RSC, but that is not in great shape.

So after about 31 hours of flying, waiting and then flying some more, I am now in Amsterdam. Spent our morning wondering around the inner city, it's so cool - especially as someone who comes from such a young country with not nearly the amount of history that Europe has. I think our plan for the afternoon is to check out the Van Gogh museum and maybe the red light district later.
On a side note, the weed culture here is crazy. I get the feeling that it's played up for tourists (I've only noticed marijuana related stuff in tourist shops) but still. It's a bit of a culture shock to see hash products and seeds being sold so openly.
Don't lie and say you didn't make your own
I remember making this about 5 or 6 years ago, not because I think I'm a famous player, but because I enjoyed cataloguing a brief description of my Runescape career in one place. My memory is a bit fuzzy right now, but as I long on from time to time I can remember my last 11 years with this game, and 9 years with you all.
Every time I log on, I see all of the same people still playing, and it's an enjoyable experience. Many of the old people are gone, but it's crazy we watched each other grow up through this game. We spent years together, and for many, this game is not for them anymore. Some of us may have lost an RS friend in real life, like I have last year (gave him a shoutout in the article).
Anyway, despite my inactivity, I do not plan on letting this game go forever right now. It's been a busy year so far. I hope you are all doing well and succeeding in the paths you've planned for yourselves.
