#2003792 What are you procrastinating doing right now?

Posted by Keil on 24 March 2017 - 06:57 PM

PRAISE THE LEVEL OF PROCRASTINATION IN THIS POST.

 

How long can you procrastinate for? Leave it until the absolute last minute. I believe in you. What is it you have to do for Codex? Let me in the loop.

 

You can count on me! Emailing it for final review at 11:58 PM the day of, which is tonight.

 

You are in the loop before you knew were in the loop.

The codex top secret thingy is due tomorrow at presumably 11:59PM whenever, but I have to unfortunately submit it earlier before the post office close at like 3PM. I need to insure that shit because I don't trust almost free government services.

I am proud of you.

Here is the list of future games according to the neopets reddit.

I confirmed the list by doing exactly what they did by changing the image link of the sticky notes's day number.

I have no words for the games up ahead.




#2003411 If you weren't already set on your life's path, what else would you be?

Posted by Keil on 20 March 2017 - 12:41 PM

I'm just curious.

 

If you weren't years into investing in a certain lifestyle (like motherhood, military, secret agent, etc.) or profession either by being in school for it or practicing, what other life path would you be pursuing at the moment? 

 

I ask this because I've reached a point where I've done so much already and wonder about the what-if's in my life. Not that I regret where I am right now, but it may be cathartic to fantasize a different life that would have been.

 

If I wasn't already in the thing I was already doing, I would have been a writer for television. I idolize and fear Tina Fey and her comedic genius (and to a smaller extend, Amy Poehler) and wondered how fun it would be to be a writer in that industry in terms of being gratified and proud that what you have created has an audience and makes other people's lives better. Not to mention the different life I would be living like living from paycheck to paycheck while struggling to find the next gig. I understand that that vision is a big leap from where I am right now, but if I spent all my time building that dream, I may have ended up somewhere higher and in a place where I would have never dreamed of. I started thinking about this because my colleague forwarded me information about the Sesame Street Writer's Room fellowship and although it doesn't fit my schedule, I can't help but think: what if? 

 

What would you be now if you didn't already choose your life's path?




#2003160 Daily Dare Coming Soon

Posted by Keil on 16 March 2017 - 06:40 PM

Hell yeah. I'm going to go all out and do my best for this copy and paste children's flash game event.

 

If there isn't any scores that's too difficult, I'm probably going to go legit the entire way. I've been legit for both the DD and GMC for three years straight and got the highest level trophies/prizes.




#2003052 How to improve reading comprehension?

Posted by Keil on 15 March 2017 - 08:46 AM

I'm going to ask something odd. How "preoccupied" is your mind during these times? One possibility (probably not the main issue) is that your mind is currently overwhelmed or distracted by something completely unrelated to what is in front of you. It isn't out of the realm of reason to think that even though you want your body to focus on the document in front of you, that your mind is elsewhere, trying to process/cope a previous event in your life. Maybe there are unresolved or inconclusive thoughts in your head that should be addressed for the sake of mental clarity.

 

If you want real advice, the simplest one is to practice and get over that initial hump before things get easier. Struggle with your first baby step like understand a page of a book before reading the next one. 




#2003027 Have a slice of Humble Pie. Oh no, I insist!

Posted by Keil on 14 March 2017 - 08:57 PM

I legit forgot this was a thing because my roommate and I made slushies with ghetto dollar store fruit(?) juice and snow from out windowsill. We are both in our mid twenties and are the future of mental health.

#2002479 What really grinds YOUR gears?

Posted by Keil on 03 March 2017 - 08:42 PM

People who accuse others of cultural appropriation when it isn't their culture being appropriated.


#2002385 Skirmish Battles

Posted by Keil on 28 February 2017 - 08:03 PM

It is definitely sway. I don't know anyone who is dumb enough to not take advantage of the Refreshed Quest boon during the Faerie Quest event.

 

Scratch that, people have surprised me in the past. But still, the incentive with the boon is enough for serious battledomers to choose sway just for the stat points.




#2002192 AI & robot rights

Posted by Keil on 24 February 2017 - 10:08 PM

Given I asked "how long until we see AI", clearly I am not referencing current suppositions of AI. I am referencing artificial intelligence that can program itself to improve/become more intelligence, or program other AI.


Clearly is a big person word that I often see people use when someone wants to get a point across immediately and with minimal effort and success. I use it too.

I am disgusted as an academic that you linked a Wikipedia article and not the literature that it borrowed information from. Everyone should read it. Skip the mathematical logic part if you need ton since all you really need is the gist from the introduction. I say it's worth the 20 minutes of reading.

Now I ask you this to finish off the definition: Is the essence of AIs limited to only computers and robots (in other words, are they just programs that humans made using code they typed into a processor)?


#2001868 The TMI topic

Posted by Keil on 21 February 2017 - 10:32 AM

Did you survive?

 

No. After a long day of lecture, the microbes didn’t like the session so they had gutted me..and set me on fire..but I didn’t die..bitch, I crystallized…and now I’m a researcher bitch, ready for the psychiatric field.




#2001575 Random Contest #12 Minority Rules

Posted by Keil on 17 February 2017 - 04:16 PM

I decided to go completely random so that I didn't over think my decisions!

 

I see what you're doing... you person who is involved in the study of psychology in one way or another... you.




#2001090 What's Your Biggest Regret?

Posted by Keil on 08 February 2017 - 06:23 PM

There was a time when I had to choose between dressing up as a giant blue bird or ending the career of a judge by helping old people stretch. Of course, the silly me chose the blue bird and the one of the worst parts of that decision is that the built-in fan was broken.

 

This is a serious regret and not some metaphor. There's just details missing that would have made anyone accept this as my greatest regret.

 

tl;dr I learned nothing.




#2000958 Unpopular Opinions

Posted by Keil on 05 February 2017 - 10:49 PM

How's that working out

 

Pretty well. 

 

He single-handedly sparked a huge spike in political advocacy and awareness in the younger generations and proved that the current presidential system is an archaic one that needs remodeling to adapt to the nation's modern needs. He is a good president for those reasons. What happens past the six month point would just be an irredeemable mess that no one can put a positive spin to lol




#2000739 Depression advice

Posted by Keil on 02 February 2017 - 05:11 PM

Get professional help in the therapy direction--potentially family or maybe even couples counseling. I don't doubt your relationship and it's far from the usual "I cheated you with a hooker that's also your cousin" drama, but I feel like the both of you (and potentially more people involved in your personally-defined family) would benefit from developing certain skills toward stress management and developing a strong support system that branches out from a household bubble and into some form of community involvement and other social services. Get a good referral.
