Just got a legit 4 flip line at the bus stop: Kickflip of the bus stop curb (a slightly higher than usual curb), kickflip up a regular curb on the opposite side of the bus stop, heelflip on the sidewalk, kickflip of the bus stop curb. All more or less proper, no toe drag.  8)
why come?

After 17 years my city is finally getting a new park, and Iím on the subcommittee for it. Minimum budget is 400k, max is 800. They have a 12-24 month plan for it

Last time a park was built they waited until the designer went on a trip to build the park and they just tossed his design and built some shit for like 50k so thisíll be the best park we have.

Just started listening to John Prine. Pure bliss just hitting the shuffle on his catalog

Got prescribed some codeine after putting up with the worst fucking headache ever for 3.5 days. Ibuprofen and paracetamol did nothing, but this magic potion did the trick.

Spent the whole weekend bedridden but I'm just stoked that my head isn't pounding like a hammer anymore.

Prine rules, his music always puts me in a good mood. One of the best ever (Townes still remains the ultimate GOAT for me though). Think Iím going to put some on while having breakfast in the sun.


As for me, I donít think Iíve ever been this in shape.

Been doing BJJ 4x a week and finally started dealing with a personal trainer so I could stenghten everything and not be hurt all the time. Strangely enough, I havenít lost that much weight, yet all my clothes fit loose now. Also been on a solid stretching mission as well, flexibility is at an all-time high and Iím no longer sore in the morning. Cardio is as good as ever.

Turning this fat into muscle has been the best thing for me. My back and neck arenít sore anymore and I finally started skating again after almost a year off. My skate legs are slowly coming back, but muscle memory is still there.

Itís not always fun, but goddamn is it ever beneficial.

Get fucked, herniated discs !

2 years ago this month I moved into my friends spare bedroom with my dog and no job after leaving my ex-spouse and knowing that I was going to divorce them. Last year this time I had a minimum wage job and managed to move into my own small little studio. It sucked and I barely even had money for food but it was my own spot for the first time in my life. Yesterday I moved into a nice little one bedroom in the neighborhood I love, I got some IT certs and got a decent paying entry level job. My place has laundry on site, I can receive packages, and itís way more secure/overall nicer. (The last place had none of those options).

Theres still shit going on in the background thats not great but that stuff is always gunna be there. For today im just really happy that I have my own place thats big enough for me and my dog to be at for awhile.

Just curious, what certifications did you get?  I'm hoping to take the CCNA in like 2 months.  I already have a decent entry level networking gig and I think this would be enough to get a good job.

Just curious, what certifications did you get?  I'm hoping to take the CCNA in like 2 months.  I already have a decent entry level networking gig and I think this would be enough to get a good job.

I have my A+ and Google IT Support cert, Iíll be getting Net+ in the fall and Sec+ in the winter and hopefully a couple others along the way (SNOW Admin and Azure Fundamentals). If youíre already in a entry level networking job then the CCNA will be great for your career. Juniper seems cool and all but Cisco is still reigning champ and that cert is widely recognized and holds a lot of weight. If your going to stay in Networking then iíd recommend just skipping Net+ and focusing on the Cisco track and maybe some other ones to show some versatility in your skill set. Knowing a bit of Python is always going to help as well. Art of Network Engineering is a good podcast that iíve found that really helps map out what certs to get and what to know to stand out depending on who theyíre interviewing.

Ya, I never took the test, but I read the Mike Myers Network+ book and went through Professor Messer's net+ course on youtube.  I'm almost through all the CCNA material, I just want to brush up and lab a bunch of shit before I waste my employer's money testing for it.

I work in a NOC for an ISP and we use mainly Nokia routers, but the training for any Nokia certification is expensive or outdated.  The CCNA is by far the most useful entry level networking certification.  Also, the command line isn't that much different from Cisco gear and I think most places avoid using Cisco proprietary protocols anyways.

I've been throwing apps out here and there for Sys Admin/managed service provider shit as well and interviewing occasionally.  I've got a janky Virtualbox lab set up with Windows Server 2019, used a Powershell script to import users and shit like that.  Slowly getting more privileges at work too, adding them to my resume/LinkedIn.  I'm ass with resume's and shit, but slowly improving.  This is all kind of a long slow process, so it's cool to talk to someone on here about it to keep me motivated.

Thatís awesome! Iím also looking at getting a sysadmin position eventually. Iím doing Net+ since I get it for free through the non-profit I got my A+ through. If iím lucky iíll be able to get Net+ Sec+ and either Server+ or PenTest+ through them free of charge over the next year and a half.

So far I just havent really found my love for networking but I want to learn it since Iíll need to have knowledge of it for any position I want. Recently iíve been trying to get into Linux as much as possible.

I work at a really large company and I do all the back end stuff for setting up employees machines and getting their equipment replaced. Itís kinda nice because its almost half warehouse and half IT work so I get to move around while I work. Also because I work in equipment I get to bring home EOL machines and other gear that would otherwise get ewasted. In the past 3 months iíve already gotten a newish Surface with a docking station, an Elitebook that I turned into a Linux machine, and some odds and ends like a new wireless keyboard/mouse combo.

Feel free to hit me up whenever if you want to talk certs or shop or anything. Talking about it helps motivate me to actually study haha.

Probably the best feeling in skateboarding.

 You and the D00D have turned this thread into a horrible head-on-collision between a short bus full of regular kids and a van full of paraplegics.

Rn is m looking at the ex wife (prostitute rat) of the scum bag who invaded my home in 2005.

I just was skating from the dr to Starbucks and she and here disgusting friends are posted up in front of dunks swampscott vinin square. Begging for change.

She approached me as I was rolling by. Had my mask on. She said

“Excuse me but do you happen….

I said NO! And rolled by.

Instantly I’m like yo I need some payback for that court shit she did to me. I should call 911 and say she soliciting me for prostitution.  Yes that’s the one officer. 

Stupid bitch’s husband kicked in my door with a razor scooter and beat me over the head with my cane while I was half crippled and coming down off a heavy lsd trip.

Because I would not pen the door for them.

I had to use lethal force to protect myself.

I went to jail. My house got raided for graffiti 2 days later and I went to jail again because she was so upset that her husband almost killed Himself by invading my home.

She had never seen me do graffiti and she had no idea with my name was. She just knew people called me a king at that time.

She went States evidence they helped her lie I was convicted. 

I’d be all the other charges for defending myself in my houseI had also refused to help the state bring home invasion charges against the fucker who was also abusing his family.

Still she wanted to get me because he went to jail that day for other non related things.

Anyway I can still sleep at night knowing I didn’t get payback by using the system against anyone ever.

I’m lightly stoked I didn’t do it

Surly she is gone by now after making this post. How satisfying would it have been to watch her get cuffed and stuffed into a cop car.
Plz stop killing each other

Made my own salsa with blistered tomatoes, onion, garlic, and rehydrated ancho chilis today. Stoked on that, changed the game when making Mexican dishes for me.
The exact geographical location of skateboarding's core is directly under the DC logo at the Rob Dyrdek Plaza in Kettering Ohio.
