It seems to me we could all use a bit of the positive in our lives. I know I could. This is the place to list good things in or going on in your life. Despite the frustrations, there is always something good going on, isn't there?

Good things for me from today:
An hour long walk with my 3 year old Bryce and an unexpected call for an interview on Friday for a job that I really want/need.

i made myself look like a dork today... that is all.


It's beautiful outside, my house smells like freshly baked cupcakes, and one of my oldest and dearest friends called me today to tell me she was coming to see me this summer. Even when things are bad, life can be good. Thank you, my friend, for reminding me of this.

Certainly, my lady. I supposed I needed reminding more than most. Lynora was mentioning how grumpy and stressed I have been lately and I realized that there had to be *some* good. Then I remembered this was the title of an item on a messageboard in college that seemed to gain a life of it's own. Maybe it will here. Maybe it won't. Hopefully it will at least brighten someone's day. Life is frakkin hard sometimes and we need to remember that some things are going right. [/soapbox]

Back on topic to some good things:
Mmmm...cupcakes. Now to get Lady Lena to send some my way... :) Or maybe even Lynora to make some. :)
Also, finally caught up on PbP thread


My Son (as most know has Leukemia), has not been ill even though he's been around a lot of stuff that could have made him such. He's jumping and skipping and playing with his little brother.

And:
When I got home, I got a big hug from Blue, and a big hug & kiss from Grey.

It's the little things, and they make going to work every day soooo hard. But they make me happy.

/d


I watched an entire hour of "you think you can dance" with my wife tonight, and I managed to avoid suicide. And the payoff: she actually THANKED me for watching it with her, which made it almost worth it!


My Mom is doing pretty good, even though she is going through Chemo right now. I got to have lunch with one of my best friends. Even though I really dislike the 4pm to midnight shift, I have a good job that pays well and has lots of benifits. I was able to say hello to 5 of my friends on the standard wensday night get together, even though it was only for 5 minutes. I have a house and it is a pretty good one, despite being an older house, needing some work done on the kitchen, and a total wreck at the moment, due to not cleaning up my mess. I have a sweet little mutt who loves me despite that fact that she never gets all the walks that she wants. I have a bunch of good friends that like me. I do not know why at times, but they still do. I am over half way through all the divorce crap (alimony, health insurance, back taxes, and three credit cards are paid off. That leaves 3 more credit cards to pay off and I am done.).

I wrote up a bunch of monsters last night! And they were cool! And it's my job to do things like this! I love my life!

Oh, and I am getting paid to teach a guy to saber fight like a conquistador tomorrow, and then I'm getting paid to teach a bunch of high school students how to battle with spears on Saturday...yeah, life is pretty sweeeeet.


I got to help out a homeless man a few minutes ago. I had dinner at a nice pizza place and there were left-overs. ~licks my lips~ mmmnnnn, pizza. A homeless man came up to me and asked for some money. I do not hand out money, especially since I contribute to charities for that. But I did have my leftover pizza, so I gave it to him. I just wish him the best.


Let's see...good stuff for today, huh? Well, I caught a training at work today for CPR and First Aid that I almost missed and it ended up being a nice bus trip to downtown brooklyn on a wonderfully warm and sunny day. I've planned out my trip to see my cousin graduate in Newport News, Virginia next week, it looks like I'm going to Otakon in Baltimore, Maryland next month (bunking up in a room with a few people for $150US for the whole con! WOOHOO!), made plans with my fiancee to move my desk (which has room for ALL of our computers) into the apartment that we have inherited, and I am currently sitting down to work on my campaign setting and a character for an unrelated adventure while watching the last three hours of Lost. It's been a pretty damn good day. Salud.


Reading a bit of Complete Champion--which is exactly the DM tool I was hoping it would be. Woot!
And heading off to bed--good for sleepy shamgar. *zzzz*

Nothing is worth that punishment. I sat with my wifey watching it and spent the time wisely creating a 3rd level Warblade while wishing that my eyes were gouged everytime I looked up to see some hip-hop dancer try to do a real dance, OOOHHH, that would make a cool drinking game....

I have a case of Mike's Hard(mixed) and a case of Shiner Bock chillin' in the fridgizzo next ta 3 bottles of assorted meads (yes, I like em' cold), yo'! Life is good.

I just received a confirmation letter in the mail from the college of my choice (The Ontario School of Art and Design)!

Despite its myriad of challenges, life is good.

I love existing.

What exactly constitutes a "real dance"? Although I can't dance myself, when I watch the show(a rare event) I see a wide variety of styles and skill levels from good to bad.

1) Just found out that http://www.paradigmconcepts.com/ has a new Psionics sourcebook coming out. Perfect timing for a campaign thats starting shortly.

2) Cant wait for my first PATHFINDER to come in the mail. I suspect it will incredible.

3) Ordered a couple of 'Complete' books and am anxiously awaiting their arrival.

4) Thankful that PAIZO actually cares about us, and consistently proves it to us not only by words, but more importantly, by their actions. Keep up the great work!!!

5) Thankful that Coz has always been there when i had questions about products and ordering. It's also kinda cool that he treats everyone like he's known them for years. Case in point: Called a while back and had him on speaker phone(i was multi-tasking) about an issue. Once the call was ended, my fellow employees remarked that he seems like a really cool friend the way he helped me out. Imagine there surprise when i explained that i have never met the guy and what they witnessed was excellent customer service skills. On a similar note; i find it great that the officers at PAIZO actually interact with us on their site.

Thoth-Amon


Cos is the guy I talk to on the phone!?! Holy cobalts Batman! That is just too cool for words, I've spoken to him several times and didn't even connect. That just totally made my day, I always comment to everyone what great customer service Paizo has over the phone. This is my "good thing" for the day.

I got offered a new job today which is cool, I'm healthy, I have a house, four cats and an owl as well as a girlfriend who loves me (not in order of importance). And I now have a D&D gaming group!

Thanks for making me take the time to stop and look at these things. Sometimes I forget how lucky I am.

Elcian


Went to a tiki bar in the city for a friend's 25th birthday and proceeded to buy him crazy tiki drinks and pina coladas to get him in a "celebratory mood" for the first time.

Managed to get my professional portfolio website up and running, so that I can concentrate on getting my resume polished and new promo pieces made.

May somehow start playing D&D again soon. Though, I'm not sure what I'm going to run.

Hey James,

I checked out your portfolio and was impressed; you have some serious talent. I really like 'Your Biggest Fan'

Great stuff.

Well, you can just point your browser to JamesMKeegan.com and check out what a weirdo you have in your midst here, Elcian. I have to warn you that one or two drawings may be construed as a little in the Not Work Safe department, which is not to say that they're horrible or depraved, but there is a bit of nudity here or there.

Thanks for the opportunity for shameless self-promotion!

Anything not-hip and/or hop.;p

I realize that others may hold hip-hop up on a pedestal but I hate it and wish it would start fading away as quickly as possible.

James you have talent,

some of the paintings remind me a little of Jack Vetriano (in a good way) in terms of shading. Obviously the composition and subject matter is very different.

As for being a wierdo, well hey, I pretend to be multiple people in a fictional world in my spare time. Your in good company.

Whats the plan with the art work, are you going to go professional?

Elcian


Thanks, Elcian. My hope is to eventually make a living with painting, illustration or cartooning. But I think I still have to take some time to figure out where I'm going and how I'm going to get there, so for the present I'm hoping to find some kind of day job so that I can move back to New York and continue working on my art.

Thanks for the support Elcian. She is a tough cookie, so I have no doubt that she will make it through this in good shape. Everyone is commenting on how well she is doing and the fact that she is still working. I am just glad that she is able to beat this trouble.

Good luck, man. I too am an aspiring illustrator.

Your work is really solid; once you figure out where you want to go with it, I'm positive you'll find success.

I proposed to my long-time girlfriend over the weekend. We're getting married next June!

Yep, another aspiring artist here. And hopefully, after another year and a half, I'll finally have enough dough to go to college.

Congratulations! From what I'm told, a long engagement period is always a good idea. Best of luck.

Thanks again everyone for the encouragement. Mr. Shiny, best of luck. Art school can be a frustrating zoo of a place, but I've met some great folks (teachers and students) there.

A 'Good Stuff' thread, eh? Hmmmm...

Well, my wife and daughter are across the country from me on vacation with my mother-in-law which, while I miss them dearly, it is kind of nice to get a little 'bachelor time' to hang out with my friends and not have to change diapers! :)

My Play-by-Post games seem to be doing well and I'm having a lot of fun developing these storylines. I shall continue to do so until the participating parties lose interest.

I'm currently enjoying some Mountain Dew Baja Blast, perhaps the tastiest soda beverage available.

My boss has left the office for the day, meaning that I no longer need to minimize this window as he passes by.

It's almost Friday, which is when our weekly D&D game takes place followed by a Dark Ages Vampire game on Sunday night.

That's all I've got for now.


Wifey made breakfast sammiches for dinner. Yummy.
Flying to NJ for really important job interview tomorrow (good despite having to get up at 3:30am, which until now I have refused to believe existed)
I have a friend cool enough to offer me a ride to the airport at 4:30am.


60% done with an essay I am currently avoiding that's due...tomorrow.

That one can go both ways.

I also, but I'm nowhere near good enough to ever make a living off it, so I just dabble and may eventually end up as one of those "street art vendors" you see all over European cities to rake in some extra cash.


I'm done with my essay!!! I never want to look at Microsoft Works Word Processor EVER AGAIN!!!...

*Sifts through pile of junk, sighs, and begins finishing book the essay due next week is on.*

Mmmm....beer


I've written a short comic and have found an artist who's willing to work with me, and besides being talented he's very enthusiastic. He's doing production art right now and so far the paintings are awesome and we're both really into the project. Check it out (don't worry I'm not advertising at you, we've only just started it). I'm really happy, it's giving me energy to tackle all the other less exciting things I have to do...

Definitely a good thing.


In a desparate attempt to focus on the good in my day (trapped in NYC due to over 30 cancelled flights, no clothes as this was in and out same day, in a smoking room when I'm allergic, up since 3am, more airport tomorrow, etc..) I though I would search out this thread:

Good things:
1. The company I flew to NYC to interview with is graciously paying for my room, cab, and meals since the flight was cancelled.
2. Despite the fact that I suspect I will not get the job offer, they are a good company and I will have an answer by Tuesday instead of 10 weeks from now as has recently and repeatedly occurred.
3. This is my first time in NYC! Granted, I'm just in a hotel by LaGuardia, but hey I went walking to a crazy/frightening Chinese restaurant on 39th that was ok and got a kebob from an 'interesting' street vendor.
4. My wife and friends have been supportive and great.
5. One of my friends was kind enough to drive me to the airport at 4:30 in the morning.
6. Paizo people are wonderful.

Have a good night all.

Ah, Shamgar. I was fortunate enough to go to school for four years in NYC and I'm desperate to get back. I hope you'll make another trip that ends up a great deal more pleasant than this one.


Hmmm, good things huh...

1) It's Friday & a payday
2) My bills are all caught up & I have money left to play with
3) Spent tonight playing Bunco (a dice game) for the 1st time, with my aunt, my cousin & my aunts friends. It was actually pretty fun.
4) I'm not on-call this weekend and so I don't have to worry about getting a page in the middle of the family birthday lunch Sunday.
5) Spending Sunday with my family (aunts/uncles/cousins/outlaws)
6) Gaming with Lawgiver & his wife & son on Saturday.

Yeah, life is good!


I usually have some good things happening to me, but not today. Except my cat (who's like that friend that you go out to the bar or to get coffee with every once in a while, and while she's really great and supportive and everything, you don't hug afterwords. If that makes any sense) is sitting at my feet purring and cuddling. It makes me feel better to know at least one being loves me when I feel so sicky and insomnia is taking its toll.


Finally being home. *sigh*
