Re: The "Damn! I'm good!" thread.

I became director of an academic unit at a major university at the age of 33, my wife did the same at the age of 31. We are both very proud of that. I hope in two or so years I can post here when I get my Ph.D. in Education Policy.

I just kicked ass." Share the joy folks, share the joy!

Everybody is different, and has different accomplishments that make them feel like, just for one shining moment, they are the most talented so and so at something. Here is the place to brag, boast and do the touchdown dance you so desparately want to do. Keep it happy folks.
Gotcha!

This know it all in my office bought a new family car last night and was bragging about it this morning. IT was a 2010 Jeep 4 door.

She is just a bitch is the only way I can describe her.

I printed off this article:

Buckle up! The most dangerous cars in the US - Business on NBCNews.com

Then at lunch time I stopped at Safeway and bought a bag of chips and some dip. Got back and put out the chips, dip and placed the print article by them on the office snack table. Emailed everyone "Chips and Dips to help us through a boring Friday afternoon". Like dogs they all went for it.

Folks started leafing through the article and were like "Heidi your new car is listed as one of the most dangerous ones out there." She had a oh shit look on her face and ran back to her cube to call her husband.

Good times. I had a big smile on my face afterwards as I ate my chips and dip.

Re: The "Damn! I'm good!" thread.

Sorry JR didn't mean to steal your thread's thunder.

Pat myself on the back time. After being the ultimate college slacker for a few years and failing out of school multiple times, yes multiple times, from multiple schools no less, I finally got my shit in order and went on to get an MBA with a couple of Dean's list honors along the way. Yeah I was pretty proud of that. I was basically a bust that turned things around and went to the Hall of Fame.

I am betting you were doing the touchdown dance inside your head as walked across the stage to get your diploma.

See, the others think you are just mocking the thread. I know that, for you, this was an actual accomplishment in which you take great pride.

All the extra hours and pressure, babysitting your staff, taking all the heat for your people when they didn't get their shit done, etc. So I got my old job back and got to keep my manager's pay. Not a bad deal.
That especially works out in your case, being mortgage free. I'd do things the same way if I were in your shoes, methinks.

I should have gone prime time and done the Deion dance across the stage, I'm more of a toss the ball to the ref kinda guy though

Re: The "Damn! I'm good!" thread.

I'm typing this on the PC I just built. It feels great after all the issues I had, first with getting no power on it, then getting power but nothing on screen (turns out my wireless adapter and my motherboard don't get along). One 50 foot ethernet cable hooked up later, all systems go.

This might be more impressive if you knew what you nailed.

Awesome. I'm glad that you got it purring. You must feel triumphant.
