Share Five Facts About Yourself

fly1212 fly1212
I'm a USCG licensed captain and prefer being at sea to staying on land.

I play men's league hockey and yes, I realize it requires land unless you sail at the poles

I am insanely polite and courteous to a fault even to people that don't deserve it

My biggest regret is not having served in the armed forces like much of my family

I love to cook and consider myself an amateur gourmet

#1 I'm tired as hell at the moment.

#2 I'm fascinated by Rüdiger Nehberg who managed crossing the atlantic ocean twice. The first time he used a a paddle boat and his second time he used a dugout canoe. Incredible.

#3 I would love making my living by being a teacher and researcher for psychedelich methods of accelerated learning.

#4 Maybe I'd love being a tantra teacher as well.

#5 I'm also incredibly shy. So shy that I sometimes appear to be misanthropic or arrogant.

I've heard that child prodigies often lose their ability to play exceptionally well and this was probably the best decision your parents could have made for you.

Just barely down to the bra strap line. Makes me sad.

I don't know that I personally qualified as a prodigy, but I take your point & I do agree with you about the decision they made. They included me in it which is surprising since they were/are such control freaks, ha! They set out the options, told me what they thought, had me think it over for a few weeks while peppering them with questions and then I decided if I could still do music, but also pursue other things (and that was what I wanted) then that was better - I wanted to keep going to school and learn all the things I was interested in and not have everything secondary or sacrificed to music. Plus, I didn't love performing. I enjoyed it more in an ensemble, but solo stressed me out, even if it didn't show anymore. I knew even then that there are some people that thrive on performance and they were better suited for it. Even if I only composed, I would likely have to conduct at some point...

I sent you a PM about a supplement you might like to try. It's backed by actual science and works for tons of people. I think having your hair down to your bra strap is already very long and is probably pretty. Do you wear your hair down a lot? Just curious.

I rarely recommend products for people because it's such a tricky thing, but the link I sent is as guaranteed to work as anything can be. Let me know if you do try it. All the info is already provided, including how long to expect before seeing results. I lost a lot of my hair from stress due to illness. It became very sparse and once that happens, it's usually hard to get it back to it's former glory. But, it is like it's been "turned back on" to grow, not to mention my crazy nails. I decided to just see how long they'd get with no care and two on my right hand got snagged, so they aren't as long. But my left hand has grown about .75" since May or June here's a picture of me holding my Lelo Smart Wand I haven't done a thing to them other than file if they get rough edges. I haven't been using lotion either, so they look kinda rough, sorry. Hey, at least they are clean!



I don't put anything on them, no nail polish, oils, anything. I am going to cut them any day now because they are annoying the crap out of me, though the cats enjoy the scratches. I also don't want to look like a dragon lady. I figure the experiment shows they will just keep growing until they break from me being rough. Besides typing with them is a weird feeling and I make more typos. (Sorry the image is so big, I don't have a way to reduce it.) Hey, that's your avatar above my fingers, Stormy.

@js250, thanks about the tip, I do know about long hair and migraines, but it doesn't affect me in the least. If I change a part for example, I get a very sore scalp, but nothing about my hair ever triggers a migraine. I have chopped it off to chin length a few times since high school, just a few years ago in fact and it makes no difference. I am damn glad about that after reading about your experience!

0_0 Sweet mother of pearl!
How...on Earth do you get your nails that long?
Mine always break before they even hit somewhere around a quarter of an inch.
And once one breaks, if you don't trim them all down so they're even, it looks awkward.

The worst is when the thumbnails break though, it makes texting a pain in the ass trying to hit those tiny keys with no nail to depress the button.

Hey you! I just got done talking about you here !

I will send you the link that I sent Stormy. I was taking that and it seemed to turn on my hair and nail growth. My right hand has two shorter nails because I did snag them. I really did/do nothing special except take the supplement. I even took it originally because I wanted to prove the manufacturer was wrong and wanted to expose him, lol! The joke's on me, I guess. I abuse these nails, too. I dig in the dirt with them, use them as tools (screw driver, scraper) everything you are not supposed to do and I didn't put anything on them. I really wanted to test them with a trial be fire --well, okay, at least I wanted all the other variables removed, so I knew it was the supplement results I was seeing. My nails are very flexible now so they don't break and the only thing that I have a problem with is snagging an edge with a knife, or something and that little snag catches on something and once it starts, you just have to cut it off, or it will keep tearing.

All those years of playing piano, I had to have my nails short and I would get terribly painful hangnails. It turns out that if I allow my nails to grow, even a little bit, I don't get any hang nails!

I was originally left handed but was forced to learn to write with my right. I always wanted to be ambidextrous but have forgotten how to use my left hand for writing.

Oh wow, I'm glad that they took your opinion into consideration! I've always been jealous of musical people, though. I really appreciate music (I love the symphony and opera) but am not talented myself.

Wow, congratulations on getting your license. That must have taken courage. I, myself, no longer drive because I was t-boned in a parking lot when my transmission stalled. (Hmm, perhaps I shouldn't be sharing this with you... ) I don't want to scare you off, as it was truly a we were both in the wrong place at the wrong time scenario and we were both equally at fault.

Perhaps now that you have your license you'll be able to meet people and get to know yourself as well!

Yes it did. I was nervous the day I took the test. I passed with flying colors. My Mom was the one who always took me everywhere. Slowly I am learning to love to drive. I haven't been on the highway yet, just on local roads. That's the next step. It's one thing on a long road to independence since my Mom died.

I think everyone is nervous when they test, even if they're having to renew after years of experience. Very cool that you passed with flying colors.

I was okay on highways, it's the stop and go traffic at intersections that really freaks me out.
