fucking fell asleep on hold to the national airline to chase up a flight voucher. woke up and call was finished.

 

looked at the last call and (assuming they gave me 30 seconds before they hung up) i was on hold for about 1 hour, 36 minutes.

 

fuck qantas and their 3 person customer service team

10:05pm and I'm into the 46th minute of round two of phone hold.

Dope shit Tails. Feels nice to fix things yourself. I just bought a dryer off craigslist, dude sold me a bunk one. Figured out what was wrong with it and fixed that shit and now im doin laundry. I'm not usually the handyman type so i was stoked i succeeded. I just spent the past 12 hours studying for an exam in advanced genetics, got that done at 8 am, walked a mile to class afterwards despite it being a full on blizzard outside.

yes indeed, solving shit that seems impossible with trial and error(and just brute force at times..) can be super rewarding!

 

I find that many electronics and quite a lot of other items can be fixed with a good punch or kick.  Guess that applies to people too!

3rd snowstorm in about a week, got up before dawn to grab more ice melt from the hardware store.  At the check out when the dude from the paint department calls me like hey, you want oops paint?  He chose the right dude.  Turns out these guys have to do inventory early morning when there's few customers and this guy didn't want to tag all that shit so he was trying to get random people to buy it.  Grabbed a whole bunch of rustos for .25 a piece, tall boy cans too.

Great work!  I used to do appliance delivery and repair for a living and comparing that to the other things I've learned to work on, I'd say appliances (especially driers) are "easy'ish".  I think tackling a task you weren't sure about whether or not you could do is the real accomplishment.  I wish I saw that in more people in the world. 

 

The willingness to not give up.

 sounds like a score and a half!

Surveyed our property lines with my friend that has been doing surveying for over 10 years and learned a little bit about what that involves.

Chainsawed a lot of trees (no oaks just cedar) on one (800ft) of four property lines.

Used the Kubota KX-41 excavator for the first "real job" to move some big rocks after driving it down some sketchy shit.

Our property has 40' elevation change on both sides of a drycreek/valley and some of it is pretty steep grade.  I've been watching a ton of excavation videos on youtube and have basically learned what to do to go down steep hills no problem.  Very fucking fun operating this kind of equipment IMO.  I moved rocks that I don't think 2 grown men could move by themselves.

 

Welds on the thumb bracket didn't budge (didn't expect they would).

What are you going to do with all of that cedar?
