Yay life

What better to do than mimic my 15 year old self and overshare on the internet? My last blog post was basically at the start of my self-discovery journey and so much has been going on since then. This past year I met my best friend who is about the only person I feel comfortable spilling my guts to, and is basically my rock. Which is timely because my 7 year relationship/3.5 year marriage is officially finished and she's hurt me so bad I don't know what to do most days. And now I have the pleasu

Heyo

Sal's had been so intertwined with young me's development for so long it's funny to me how I'm still drawn to make this post even though it's been like three and a half years since my last one. In that time I've become a homeowner, gotten married, adopted a dog, and yet nothing drew a post out of me til now. Coming up on a year ago now the pieces slid into place for me and I saw the clearest picture of myself to date. In my first few years here as a freshly minted member I was a proud witness to

Still around I see

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 chug

How's it going

It's been a while, hasn't it? Just thought I'd drop by and see what this place is doing. It's unbelievable to me that I came upon this place nearly ten years ago. And remembering what it was like then and seeing me and one other member online now. It's nothing new but still so weird to see. So how's life?   Obligatory rifle pictures: http://imgur.com/a/vgoIU Edit: I might've had a bit to drink a while ago and might ramble a bit but... In the first image I've now got a x7 magnifier in front

Belt grinder

It's taken a couple weeks to put together, but I've just about got it where I want it. I can't wait to hog some steel on this guy! :D     What I need is more work space. :P

New gun!

Just finished putting the lower receiver together:   It's an AR15 - my first rifle. Hopefully getting a chance to zero the sight in tomorrow.

Another knife

I had been given a knife that I really liked the feel of so I decided to make a similar one that I wouldn't care about using and abusing. Below is the puma white hunter I was given and the inspired knife below it.     It's a little beat up already because I was whittling some sticks and splitting some 2x4 chunks for a fire. I tried a few new techniques making this one too. Particularly in using two different edge angles to facilitate slicing and chopping, respectively. As for looks, I left

Custom knife

My grandpa gave me a set of antlers for making knife handles so naturally the first one I make has to be for him. I'm still building a heat treating oven so I'm still at the edge shaping stage:     I don't suppose anyone knows their way around electrical stuff? That's all that needs to be finished on my oven, I've got all the bricks and stuff laid.

Old knives

I visited my grandparents's house today and my grandpa gave me some knives, as well as some old files and a book about Third Reich edged weapons.   What I'm pretty sure is a skinning knife that has a carved antler handle.   A modified WWII bayonet converted into a knife.   (I'm not endorsed by Microsoft, it's just the only spot in my room where my shadow won't block the picture and it won't have a glare like the floor)

New hobby

I've slowly been working on making two knives to give to retiring scout leaders and I've just about finished.     The sheaths have an eagle (both leaders are fathers to eagle scouts) stamped into them and the other side of the handle has a council pin set into it. Whenever the buttons come in the mail I'll make the straps to keep the knife in the sheath and I'll be able to finally hand them over to their respective owners. I stupidly left the knives in their sheaths before the sheaths were

Skyfall

Went out with some friends to see Skyfall, the newest 007 movie. It was pretty good but had some strange logic fails. There were dozens of things Bond could've done to won an underwater struggle, like kicking his opponent down deeper into the freezing lake, broken the guy's neck, or at least knocked some air out of him but no, he went with a stranglehold. 007, super spy, choked a man out underwater.

Puppy meets the cat

Rascal, about six years old, is my sister's cat. To put it bluntly, he is an goosedown. Today the puppy got to meet him and he just hisses and howls. I'm unsure if he'd go as far as biting. Rascal even hissed at me when I reached my hand out to him. Needless to say, Rascal is going to be thinking about what he's done in my sister's room for a while.

Puppy

My mom is getting a Boston terrier puppy next month.   Tino. He's like Romeo's build and Juliet's color.

Phones

My dad passed on to me the number of a nearby fire department's training (and hiring) officer who I was to call to ask about possibly being able to sit in on training. I spent an hour figuring out what info I should give and what I should say for a phone call that must not have lasted even thirty seconds. >.<

N64

Does anyone remember using N64 controllers? Well, I opened one up and found a space inside under the control stick that holds talcum powder. That's right, that white that always was underneath the stick wasn't wear and tear plastic powder, but actual talcum powder. It's okay, it blew my mind too.

Blog Followers

Let's think of it this way: no matter how bad the entries get, I can never lose my ever faithful followers Dragons777dr and Bloodysword!

Mobile view

Personally, I'm going to stick with viewing sals in its full form on my phone. Mobile leaves out info I'd like to see anywho.   I'm also not seeing all the formatting options and smileys? Edit: Ah, none of this shows on my phone. That sucks.

Romeo

I'm incredibly fearful Romeo won't make it to the end of the year. He's not doing so hot.

Reddit Haters

http://www.reddit.com/tb/nd8t2 I must've gotten the grumpy timezone.   And as of a half hour ago I'm First Responder and CPR/AED certified!

Finals

Today I took the written portion of my EMS test. Never before have I been so nervous about my test results. Needed a 70% at the minimum to pass the First Responder portion, got 93%. Needed 80% minimum for the CPR section, got 80%. If I missed either of those I would have wasted my entire semester. So yeah, I passed all of those, but what's worse is that there were only 25 questions total for the CPR and I got the maximum of five wrong - three of those I had gone against my gut feeling, one I pi

App

Anyone interested/involved in first responder stuff should definitely take a look at an app called "911 Toolkit". Seriously, it has sections for hydraulics (and other water-related things), EMS (anatomy, lung sounds, CPR, triage, etc), Hazmat, checklists for pretty much any scene, quizzes for fire and ems, and some miscellaneous things at the end.   I think the adult lung sounds for wheezing are capable of giving someone nightmares if they were put in a game.   And in celebration of finishin
