What's the most you've done in a one week span?

So in my time-out from this forum i was able to accomplish a hell of a lot. i'm a little tired because i haven't really come up for a breath yet or relaxed too much as been a little wound.

Anyway, in exactly a 7 day span (and since i was absent from this forum in that exact 7 day span) (in no particular order):

1. i was able to get a new XBOX Series X.

2. Fire TV cube that controls everything i own with my voice.

3. Re-set up my entire entertainment system and computer and router, modem as had some guys put in hardwood flooring where there was carpet. My entire collection, while whole, is in such disarray. they didn't put one shelf of blus in the same spots in walk-in closet. i'll get to that though. At least everything set up now and back to almost normal.

4. Became a licensed pharmacist (been taking night classes for years).

5. Started a new job/changed careers as a pharmacist/co-owner of little non-retail/specialized pharmacy with a great company behind it, but we little, but still profitable.

6. Got engaged to my best friend. No date set.

Pretty productive I would say and i am just totally in bliss.

Became fabulous, then increased in fabulousness daily till at the end of the week, I exploded into hot pink glitter that lit up the sky.

Then I went back to being the worthless piece-of-shit do-nothing bitch y'all know and love.

Wow, congrats on the pharmacist part. You'll be making even more $$$ now that you have the degree in it.

For me it was probably going on the Megacruise. A perfect line up of my favorite thrash bands all on one boat. I saw 17 full headlining sets and a few partial sets over the course of 5 days with meet and greets, great 4 course meals every night, hanging with bands at the bars late at night, and even sightseeing excursions in Mexico, etc. Maybe averaged 4 hours of sleep each night.

Re: What's the most you've done in a one week span?

It was probably working one of those long-haul storm responses that I used to do. Since I would get about ten hours of sleep over the course of the week, I donít really recall much though. I vaguely recall ending up in Vermont and possibly Massachusetts. I have spotty memories of a Chinook helicopter airdropping supplies, looking up an ex-girlfriend in Indiana, and making travel videos. Good times.

Re: What's the most you've done in a one week span?

Cleaned the entire house from top to bottom, getting rid of TONS of stuff. Cleared the yard, took down a rusty old shed, cut vegetation back, all the major yardwork in sweeping and putting things completely in order. That was a major project and took 7 full days, 8 or 9 hours a day, but things are in tip top shape now, ready to sell when I finally find a place that I'm happy with which has good climate (cool, rainy, cloudy) and few people and NO closeby neighbors! That'll take probably a year to find a satisfactory place, but I feel I'm a big step closer to that move now that I've finally tackled the house project of cleaning things up.

My mind reels at the whirwind the OP must have gone through. I think all of that would have taken me several months, WITHOUT the engagement part. Time for some Adderall, chill a bit.

Well, good for you OldBoy. Life is too short to be unhappy. If you found something and someone that's made you happy, than that's wonderful.

Wow that is a busy week. Congrats on your fire TV!

Congrats on your degree! Welcome to the profession OldBoy! That's awesome that you're in a specialty pharmacy and not in a retail setting.

And also way to go on your engagement.

^ thanks tanman. Yeah, Iíve done pt in retail. Absolutely blows. This place is like I donít care about getting up early and working a full day. The staff, the environment is just the best I have ever been apart of to date in my life.

It cracks me up that getting an Xbox tops the list. Congrats on your engagement, new profession, and buying a business!

Re: What's the most you've done in a one week span?

We've had to do a move-out and move-in in under a week. Luckily it was from one unit we were renting in a condo building to another unit we were buying in the same building. We had to have somebody paint the new place, then hired movers to help us move down a level and down a wing to the new place and then have the carpet cleaned in the old place for the new people.

For me, can't remember the exact dates but in a nutshell:
  • Move back to the States with my wife after living in Japan for about 10 years on a Saturday
  • Buy a car and drive to Los Angeles from San Diego where I would start my new job on Monday
  • Start new job on Monday
  • Live in hotel for a couple of days while finding new apartment
  • Finding apartment and moving in
  • Basics furniture shopping to get apartment livable by the next weekend
