Discussion in 'Winnipeg Jets' started by Romang67, Jun 9, 2017.
I made it to work somehow, almost got stuck in my back lane though
I remember back lanes living with my parents growing up and swore I would never, ever have a house with a detached garage on a back lane.
Wait, are you guys snowed in?
We actually had power, they just gave everyone black tshirts like an inverted Jets playoff.
It's not that bad for most people within city limits. Still, don't want to be out on the roads today. Too many people without winter tires.
I don't know if anybody has noticed, but Enstrom passed Andrew Ladd in points a while ago.
Was a nice snow day got to watch Man U comeback and win and shoveled 4 times
Meh.....I seen lots worse than this
Exchange was absolutely beautiful today. Looked like a postcard.
And now for something completely different:
high school basketball player speaking. Best sports quote I've ever heard maybe.
Quality young man right there.
So one of my jackets is a men’s size.
I just stuffed three paperbacks in one pocket.
This is why you guys don’t have to use a handbag.
Yea the coach was pretty emotional and for good reason.
I hope the store's security cameras didn't catch that.
So my Baba (grandmother in English to the non-Ukes out there) got diagnosed with cancer (lymphoma), she's 87 so the outlook isn't great. She just went into the hospital yesterday. I'm trying to be rational about it 'She's lived a long life' etc, but she was way more my mother growing up than my actual mom and I'm having a tough time dealing and I just feel angry and sad. I'm the quintessential Baba's boy haha. Also unfortunately she is 4 hour drive away so I can't be there at the moment. Factor in that our dog is sick with something plus work stress the last and the last month has been tough, haven't slept well . I am about one gas station trip from buying a pack of cigarettes and going full bore back on smoking. Any words of advice from ex-smokers on how to not cave when the inevitable life stress happens? Feeling very weak the past week and that I'll cave.
But at least the Jets are winning that helps a lot. A good distraction
Sorry to hear about your Baba and all the other stress in your life.
As far as smoking, the nicotine is now completely out of your system - it's a psychological, not a physical addiction now...and you just have to summon the willpower to say no to a cigarette - no drags, no 'just one', you aren't allowed. Don't let that little voice talk you into it. You're in charge here.
I am not an X smoker but we all have our struggles. The one piece of advice I would give is if you can push through this and not smoke it would be a small positive you could hang your hat on during this current **** storm. Make it the enemy of your current state and beat its ugly ass to the ground.
Very sorry to hear.
As an ex-smoker, the only advice I can give is - hang in there. Concentrate on anything positive. Remember too: if you do cave, it's just a blip in the road. As an ex-smoker, you'll always be quitting - it just gets easier every time you do it, and relapsing doesn't mean you've failed.
So hyped for Tiger's comeback!
"You'll always be quitting" is about the best advice I've ever heard for anyone trying to remove a habit like that from their life. All I can say is that the things you are hoping to lean on by using again, they won't be "fixed" in any ways; the things that are stressing you out will still be there to stress you out.
Stephen Hawking has passed away: Physicist Stephen Hawking dies aged 76
Happening right now .. good weather.. I mean great weather
Very sorry to hear about your Baba. With what you have told us, I humbly suggest that perhaps you might do the proactive thing. Take a bit of time to go see her -> it will mean a lot to her and possibly more to you than you might realize. The drive is totally worth it. There is a high likelihood that your urge to smoke and fret will go away with the deed executed. Having dealt with a series of very similar circumstances recently, I can recommend that this approach will help. This step will also equip you to cope with peripheral issues moving forward.
All the very best to you.
Thanks for this news JetsFan. A great mind, and to use the common vernacular, a generational physicist with significant contributions to our understanding of the behaviour of some deep space objects, the origins of the current universe, and all manner of extensions of general relativity. He helped confirm the truth of relativity by simply exploring the boundaries of gravitational influence. I have owned his book A brief history of Time for many years. He was not gifted at explanation, and perhaps deGrasse Tyson may be better, but his contributions clearly put him as a powerhouse to take his place among the greats of the last century.
A brief history of Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time
Funny you would put it that way. The Free Press article referred to the book as having "a reputation for being owned more than read".
Good riddance. I hope they're still pursuing the money.
