I just took the AA twelve questions test and scored a perfect score, 12. Years ago I only scored about a 6.
So after getting my ten year chip back in 1997, twenty five more years of research my score is perfect.
Kinda scary my drinking pattern has been to stay sober about 2 months and figure a beer is okay. I’m day 57 today, and waking up more and more. I’m deep in a jungle village Thailand so going to meetings isn’t optional. This group is kinda my meeting place. Got great advice from another fellow pilot. Twenty five years ago I quit AA after becoming a flight instructor. The flying discipline helped keep the drinking under control. Here in the jungle the local mom and pop store opens up at 06:00, sells ice cold beer. My drinking pattern had developed to sometimes wanting a drink at 04:00. So being prepared means having some extra beer in the cooler. Anyway I wanna break this pattern of 60 then drinking again, now that I’m a perfect 12.

2022.01.21 02:11 suleimaaz I lost my kitten last night
This post is kind of all over the place it’s not well organized. I just have so many things in my mind and I didn’t format it the best way so I apologize about that.
A little more than a month ago, on a day I was actually contemplating suicide I found a little kitten outside. She was a godsend. I felt like I needed to be alive for her at least. I was so happy that day.
I took her to the vet, and she tested positive for FIV. No problem, she’d be an indoor cat and could live a very normal lifespan. I took her on car rides to keep her entertained. She was so sweet she loved to cuddle and play. There was a time when I was away from her and left her with my sister. When I took her back a few weeks ago I didn’t know how little time I had left.
A few days ago she was her normal playful self. Three nights ago she wasn’t running around playing. She’d just sleep all day. Two nights ago she stopped eating or drinking anything. She just looked sick. I took her to the vet and after so many tests I found out she had a heart malformation. She always used to get tired really easily and she’d never use her legs to walk properly. When I’d taken her to the vet a month ago the vet said she might just get better as time went on. She was very skinny when I found her so we thought she was just not eating enough and as she ate more and grew up she’d get better. At the emergency room two nights ago she just got worse and worse. Her breathing was fast and labored and they told me she was in congestive heart failure.
She was hospitalized and she kept declining. All I could do was sit there in the patient room and cry. They had to drain her pleural effusion three times and each time it would come back. I kept imagining her tiny body with so many needles and tubes sticking out of her. She was so helpless and innocent. All she must have wanted was to go home and cuddle and play.
Last night she succumbed to her disease. I had put in everything I could in trying to save her. But eventually her heart stopped and I’d declined CPR because I didn’t want her to come back to the pain of broken ribs.
That little kitten had given me so much. I wasn’t exactly doing well before but her being sick and now her passing away demolished me. She was the last little good thing in my life so even though I only had her for about a month and a half her death has hit me really hard

Starting to see tickers trying to shake BBIG. These will get more numerous and shills and pump and dumpers will attack us as bag holders. We saw this before. Let us not get ready to launch and abort last second letting the divide and conquer strategy work. Be wary of the love BBIG but this one is ready to pop or move on bagholder insults. We saw this already and should have learned how to ignore the FUD that is coming and has just started. The polls I believe are meant to sow division.
Together strong. BBIG Focus.

Hi everyone! I recently discovered iPods from DankPods and am LOVING! Researching them! I want to get one for myself to help disconnect from the internet a little bit! But I can’t decide which one to get, I’m thinking about getting an iPod Classic 5.5 generation due to the Wolfson DAC, but I can’t quite decide, does anyone have any ideas? 🧐🤨

2022.01.21 02:11 DaCoinSlayah Type me please! Questionnaire + Kinlist below
• How old are you? What's your gender? Give us a general description of yourself.
27M. Overall, I consider myself a diligent person. I work towards goals that I have in mind for both my career and personal life. My approach is to focus on my strengths and try to master them. It is very much in my nature to test the limits of my abilities with the objective to surpass them. I am quintessentially career-oriented and always strive for the next promotion, working towards my ultimate goal of starting my own company. My friends often describe me as charming and insightful, a "knows what he's doing" type of guy with a strong sense of direction. I'm known to give quality advice and speak my mind. In some cases I give off "do not give a F" energy.
• Is there a medical diagnosis that may impact your mental stability somehow?
None to speak of. As much as I would like to romanticize the idea of having ADHD or OCD, I'd say I don't exhibit any notable symptoms.
• Describe your upbringing. Did it have any kind of religious or structured influence? How did you respond to it?
I would say my childhood was quite lonely. I'm an only child. My parents divorced when I was 8 years old and I ended up with mom. We lived in my grandparents home along with my uncle and aunt. I didn't have anyone my own age to talk to so I was often left alone with my own thoughts. It was isolating and I felt powerless. I had a lot of trouble making friends as a kid, looking back I think its because I don't think anyone understood me and I subconsciously created a wall between me and them. With that said, I still was able to see my dad often. There definitely was a myriad of issues and conflict that I was caught in the middle of in my parents breakup. I didn't have any religious influence growing up, but the tired Asian traditionalist culture was imposed quite frequently. In my adolescence, I was especially rebellious to these beliefs, but I think that's standard for most teenagers.
• What do you do as a job or as a career (if you have one)? Do you like it? Why or why not?
Software engineering and team leadership. I love it. I love the industry and my role specifically. Being able to solve problems and bring solutions to life gives me a sense of agency. It honestly makes me feel like I'm bringing forth a greater purpose. The team-lead role gives me a sort of validation that I'm competent and respected by my peers and leadership.
• If you had to spend an entire weekend by yourself, how would you feel? Would you feel lonely or refreshed?
It's a mix bag. I think growing up alone has made me accustomed to the practice, but I cannot go more than 2-3 weekends without seeing anyone. That would just make me feel like I have nothing going on and make me depressed. Generally speaking if I have a 3 day weekend or vacation, I'm trying my best to load it up with as much face-time with my friends and family as possible.
• What kinds of activities do you prefer? Do you like, and are you good at sports? Do you enjoy any other outdoor or indoor activities?
I like being good at things that I like. I would say my interests are quite relatable. I play video games in my downtime, currently a big TeamFight Tactics player and was ranked highly. I read a lot of self-improvement books - trying to read about 1 a month. I would say I'm fortunate to have been blessed with decent athletic genes, I played varsity level sports in high school and am usually the fastest person in most low-level competition. Meditation has recently been something I've been diving into so I can have a better handle of my thoughts and emotions.
• How curious are you? Do you have more ideas then you can execute? What are your curiosities about? What are your ideas about - is it environmental or conceptual, and can you please elaborate?
I'm curious about things I'm already familiar with or have an interest in. Rarely would I do something just for the sake of it. I need to do things with a greater purpose in mind. I would definitely consider myself more of an executor than an innovator. My ideas are rooted in fulfilling my long-term goals which are a combination of financial freedom, power and recognition.
• Would you enjoy taking on a leadership position? Do you think you would be good at it? What would your leadership style be?
Absolutely. I'm currently in a such a role and Im known to be an effective leader. I'm generally pretty hands-off unless my team needs me for something like running an idea by me or needing advice on how to deliver a project. My approach is to communicate the needs and be there to remove any blockers.
• Are you coordinated? Why do you feel as if you are or are not? Do you enjoy working with your hands in some form? Describe your activity?
Ironically not. Even though I have athletic potential, I feel almost detached from my body in a way. For example, I absolutely suck at dancing and have no bodily rhythm. Additionally sports like baseball, tennis, anything that requires using equipment to align with another projectile, I am horrible at. It's as if my being exists as separate mind and body. I do like working with my hands though. I am not very knowledgeable with tools, but I enjoy putting things together.
• Are you artistic? If yes, describe your art? If you are not particular artistic but can appreciate art please likewise describe what forums of art you enjoy. Please explain your answer.
As a child I was considerably more artistic. I always carried a sketch-pad with me and would draw just about anything. My inspiration largely came from cartoons like Pokemon and anime. I became moderately good at it and was commissioned to do some work as a teenager. In my adolescence, my art had more elements of realism and I mostly drew people, even ones I've never actually seen before. In adulthood, I don't do anything artistic, although I've been able to retain that hand-eye coordination.
• What's your opinion about the past, present, and future? How do you deal with them?
I would say I'm someone who lives in the past and future. The present is not something I interact with often. In solitude, I use my past to reflect upon my mistakes so that I know what to do better in the future. Throughout my life, I've constantly thought about the future. As a kid, I focused upon what was the optimal way to get to college and neglected my childhood. In college, I thought about what was the optimal way to start my career and that neglected my experience. In my career, I think about what is the optimal way to be successful and that is my current driving motivation. These days, I'm really trying my best to slow things down and appreciate the present.
• How do you act when others request your help to do something (anything)? If you would decide to help them, why would you do so?
I am usually ready to drop what I'm doing and help them. I genuinely like to make people happy. It's like my dirty little secret. I want to make them happy so I feel like I accomplished something and so that I am someone they can depend on.
• Do you need logical consistency in your life?
Yes to an extent. I don't particularly live by any set rules or dogma. I readily accept new information and can adapt if needed. If anything, I am quite skeptical and one of my biggest pet-peeves is hypocrisy.
• How important is efficiency and productivity to you?
Important but not integral. As much as I enjoy getting things done as fast as possible, I am a deep-believer of the process. It can take a significant amount of time to get meaningful stuff done and I don't want to rush that. Productivity is more important to me than efficiency. Keeping my mind active and stimulated is the ideal. If I can put it simply, productivity is my main routine where as efficiency is my subroutine.
• Do you control others, even if indirectly? How and why do you do that?
Indirectly, I do. If I care enough about something, I have a habit of taking initiative in group settings and that can lead to putting myself at the center. I do this unconsciously, but ultimately I do feel like we have a better chance of succeeding if I have stronger decision making ability. Unless there is someone even more competent, I generally don't like to sit back and let someone else takeover. My criteria for competence is both a combination of technical and emotional intelligence. You cannot lead without understanding the motivations of your team members.
• What are your hobbies? Why do you like them?
I used to play basketball religiously. The camaraderie and dynamic parts of the game would give me a truly visceral sense of life. But, I'm recovering from a serious leg-injury and I don't plan on getting back on the court anytime soon. These days I've been reading consistently. I love self-improvement books, especially ones with anecdotes. I enjoy hearing about their experiences and how I can learn from them. I love action-based anime and Korean drama. Seeing the protagonists progress, struggle and find their resolve is such a rewarding experience.
• What is your learning style? What kind of learning environments do you struggle with most? Why do you like/struggle with these learning styles? Do you prefer classes involving memorization, logic, creativity, or your physical senses?
A combination of visual and reading. I love interactive textbooks or project-books. I like to see what I am building or reading and that gives me a better understanding of the subject. I am very dependent on my eyesight. I often close my eyes to visualize or recall something. Classes like physics, engineering, business and even art or literature are ideal to me. I struggle with auditory learning. It takes me significantly more time to process information that's purely through lecture. Biology, history, law, pure memorization is just a big no. My college learning experience suffered because of this. I prefer closer intimate settings like labs and discussion.
• How good are you at strategizing? Do you easily break up projects into manageable tasks? Or do you have a tendency to wing projects and improvise as you go?
I'd say this is my greatest skill. I am able to visualize a clear path to success in most things I set my eyes on. I approach life like a video game and I compartmentalize the aspects like work, family, health, me-time, social-life and love. My skill points are time and energy, and I consciously decide where I want to allocate them. My friends say I'm a amazing at games like Settlers of Catan and Dominion, and that "you always manage to win in magical ways."
• What are your aspirations in life, professionally and personally?
I want to start my own tech company and take it public. Ultimately, I want to feel like I did something in this world and that would probably be the bare minimum impact I want to have. Personally, I want to have a very idealized family. I want a partner whom I can share admiration between. A son that takes after me, and a son that does not at all. A daughter that I can spoil like a princess.
• What are your fears? What makes you uncomfortable? What do you hate? Why?
My biggest fear is feeling like I did not accomplish anything. Or on a deeper level, I fear that my goals will not actually make me happy. That all my time and hard-work was for nothing all along. Crazy enough, I am uncomfortable with calendars and scheduling. The very idea of having my life on a written planner disturbs me. Maybe because it imposes static expectations of me that I ultimately don't want to be tied down to. I see myself as an open-minded person. However, I do get angry and I vehemently detest people who try to impose their ideology onto others.
• What do the "highs" in your life look like?
The highs are when I manage to balance all areas of my life. If I had to choose, I would probably put my work, health and family as my main priorities. As long as those 3 are in harmony, I would consider my psyche and long-term goals to be in great shape. Typically, I would be far more energetic when I am succeeding in those areas.
• What do the "lows" in your life look like?
A shot to any of those main areas has a strong negative affect on my psyche. I become frustrated or lethargic. Essentially becoming a ball of indifference and I will isolate myself until I find a solution or the matter finds a way to resolve itself.
• How attached are you to reality? Do you daydream often, or do you pay attention to what's around you? If you do daydream, are you aware of your surroundings while you do so?
A healthy mix of both. I do daydream quite often, but my thoughts are typically geared towards what I envision for the future for whatever was initially discussed. I don't really pay too much attention to my physical surroundings, I am lost in thought quite often. I miss my freeway exits and turns quite frequently.
• Imagine you are alone in a blank, empty room. There is nothing for you to do and no one to talk to. What do you think about?
I'll probably start meditating. I'll reflect on how I ended up here. After a few minutes, I'll come to the realization that this room is perfect for catharsis and I'll be thinking about how often I should be using this in my daily life. Then I'll think about my friends and family, considering their reactions if they were placed in a room like this and laugh at some of their reactions.
• How long do you take to make an important decision? And do you change your mind once you've made it?
It takes time. I don't do things on the spur of the moment. I like to evaluate all my options and see what's most conductive to what I want. Once I've arrived to my conclusion, I'll rarely change it and then find ways to work towards that initiative.
• How long do you take to process your emotions? How important are emotions in your life?
It takes some time. My emotions arrive right before I'm able to get a handle on them. You'll see them on my face and actions briefly before I'm able to restrain them. Typically any strong emotions I exhibit are negative, especially anger and frustration, but they quickly dissipate. My natural state is typically mellow and content, and I'm able to get back to this level easily. Emotions are important to me, but they don't play a significant role in my life, nor do they control my motivations.
• Do you ever catch yourself agreeing with others just to appease them and keep the conversation going? How often? Why?
Sometimes. I like to affirm the person in discussion to develop rapport, but I don't mindlessly agree with everything they say. Usually, I try to provide alternative ways to their thinking or provide reasoning to support their logic. I hope to find myself with like-minded people more often than not.
• Do you break rules often? Do you think authority should be challenged, or that they know better? If you do break rules, why?
I'll break rules when necessary. I have my own personal brand of integrity and I don't want to be bound by strict enforcement that's missing context and progressive logic. Authority should absolutely challenged respectfully. We need to ensure that those with great power are aware that they have great responsibility.
