Yeah, I wouldn't mind the return of the like button and you don't even need a counter, it would just display a "liked" as soon as a post or reply receives one. And that's it, no "quantity" counter. Just for the appreciation. But not a big deal... I'd like it though (pun intended)...
Nothing remarkable?
The people and the culture are remarkable. I'm sorry, I guess it seems silly now, that I initially commented about it. It was a good experience, but I'm glad to be home now.
I've lived in Honolulu forever. My uni is in Shanghai. So yes, I would technically be going back and forth, but as of right now, summer break, I am here in Honolulu. How was your experience living here?
I just stumbled across this community... seems like a combination of Reddit and Twitter without the concept of upvotes or likes. I think this may contribute to a healthier type of community. Anyone feel the same?
Sometimes I miss the ability to "like" where I just want to acknowledge a comment without having to reply, but yes I do agree.
I've always dreamt of having a spouse I would spend time with, in a nice area of Japan away from the city. We would have a garden, a Shiba Inu, and we would go to the local market to purchase groceries. We would listen to music together. You know, just enjoy each other and just live life, not just experience it. A quiet, peaceful, and simple life.
Sounds nice. I wish the same, having a peaceful life that is. I haven't exactly imagined what that would be like for me though. I think somewhere in the plains or mountains, or where the two meet. Somewhere where I can gaze over vast distances and ponder the magnificence of nature.
A truly chilled day so far. I'm going to join my friends in an online quiz later. What are you guys up to?
Today, not much. Tomorrow, I need to set up utilities for my house, and tomorrow evening I play online trivia with my friends from Hawaii.
On a whim, I decided to apply to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in LA. My audition in theory should be a month or so from now. I'm nervous.
So 5 years later, how did it go?
Congratulations! That's a big... Move!
Thanks (reformulate!!! ~error message)
Congratulations! Once you start moving in is when things will get exciting
Thanks. Moving shouldn't be too difficult. Once the sellers move out, I'll give two months notice to my apartment complex (and pay an early termination fee). I'll spend the first month cleaning and fixing and installing new things. My brother offered to help move, so that shouldn't be too bad. Then I have a few weeks to fix the apartment walls where the furniture gouged it when it was moved.
I recommend using Opera on Android with "Tablet" app layout. It works like a mini desktop browser. Its night mode is even better than Dark Reader extension.
Opera is closed source and owned by a Chinese company. I strongly do NOT recommend.
Finally, and that is just me being maybe paranoid, I found, while going into the settings of Opera, that it is under a EULA. While Brave is released under a Mozilla Public Licence 2. Not a big deal, but if I can avoid one EULA... Again, probably not a good reason not too use Opera ; that's just me preferring the Brave features on my device for day to day use. But on a tablet, I guess it would be great...
Opera is owned by a Chinese company. I highly recommend Firefox eith uBlock Origin over Brave.
In the US, the deadline to file tax returns from the previous year is usually April 15. This year, because of the disruptions caused by the coronavirus, the deadline was moved to July 15. On the one hand, it was nice not having to worry about it for a few months but on the other hand, you eventually have to worry about it. So today I made myself finish filing my tax returns and it feels great!
Must be nice :-) There's nothing difficult with my taxes this year, I'm just a procrastinator. I'll probably wait until July 13th.
Hi, it's been a while.
Today's interview went better than expected.
That's good! Right? :-)
Welcome back! Did you help some more minivans on the highway in the meantime?
lol, it took me a second to realize what you were talking about. No, unfortunately not.
