  • A Little Stress Relief

    In case you guys need a little help getting through some stress:

  • What Did You Accomplish In Life Today?

    Today was the Gutsy Walk for Crohn's and Colitis Canada, a 5K walk fundraiser, in which I took part. My goal was $150.00 and I raised over $1,500.00!

    Outside of the rain, it was a lot of fun and something I'll do again next year!

  • What Did You Accomplish In Life Today?

    So about four-ish weeks ago, you guys might recall I posted that I'd gotten ill again and didn't know what did it, but the symptoms were very Crohn's like. My doctor was concerned enough that he booked me in for a scope.

    That was today, and the good news is it looks like I'm still in remission. I have an MRI in two months to confirm, but right now it looks like I was the victim of re-occuring dumb luck.

    The downer to doing a scope is you have to "flush" out the day before which is really rough, and for me it's basically inducing digestive upset. So I'm now recovering from that which will take a good week-ish as I build up the diet.

    But, I have peace of mind.

  • Video Editing for beginners??

    Windows Movie Maker was actually pretty decent but I think they discontinued it. Last I heard they planned on rolling out something new last fall, but I haven't looked into that at all.

    Yeah, it's been discontinued and at last check, it hasn't been replaced. This is what I used for years and it was very simple and easy to use.

    @EchoGolfSierra I now use VideoPad Video Editor. It's free, and looks a bit intimidating (less intuitive than Movie Maker), but once you start figuring it out it's very easy.

  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi - SPOILERS

    @Law212 You're right, that would have been a great reason for Darth Tantrum to turn against the not-Empire, but it didn't happen. Interestingly, when I texted my bud last night to tell him my thoughts, he also felt I "hit the nail on the head:" written by fanboys.

    @Doos Absolutely, it was visually spectacular, no question on that. For me, just like with games, visual isn't the major factor for me. Again, I don't think "The Last Jedi" is an awful movie, but it's not a good one either, and after having seen it now, I no longer regret not seeing it in theatres.

    The world tried to goof me by throwing in a little bit of bad luck. The pharmacist assistant that was getting my very embarrassing medication ready and had to explain it to me was my biggest crush in high school.

    The world must not have gotten the memo that self conscious Tim has been taken over by chill, cool Tim. It was a little embarrassing but I'm not dying over it like I would have.

    That's good @TimothyWedel . Embarrassing situations come up in life, and learning to roll with them is important. Most of the time they're not as embarrassing as we think, or even if they are, most people won't care for very long unless you yourself make a big deal about it.
