The Bragging Thread!

Recommended Posts

I saw my first ever "UFO" Seemed like a pair of glowing discs flying together over the city.  Likely was a drone of some sort. Dead silent.

Finally got over an annoying hurtle for one of my stories. I've rewritten the dang thing so many times it's nice to feel satisfied about the 12th version of it. (not kidding, 11 rewrites.)

*notices this thread* Lots of good things seem to be happening to me lately.

1. My step-dad is visiting my mom and I for a week right now (he lives a few states away). When he is here we get to go to the movies and out to eat a lot, which is so much fun!

2. Next week, Mon-Thurs, I will be vacationing in San Diego for a very belated birthday celebration, which means seeing family, hanging out with my best friend, and going tons of cool places.

3. I have gone an entire two months without having a panic attack at work. Which is a really big deal for me.

I'm moving to Southern California! (NorCal right now) Its my first time living out of my hometown and away from my friends and family, so it's a pretty big step for me. My girlfriend and I got really good work opportunities down there and might actually be able to get a house!! We'll live close to the beach and everything. I'm nervous, but really excited! (I alternate very quickly between crying out of fear and bubbly enthusiasm haha)

Starting college on Monday! Very nervous and excited at the same time.

Shouldn't be too hard though. Only one or two classes a day and no classes on Fridays.

I just finished the longest book I've ever read, in little less than a month. The unabridged spanish translation of Haruki Murakami's Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. It was 905 pages long. Not bad for someone who only reads rather sporadically. I plan to change my lacking reading habits very soon, and finishing this book has been quite the start!

I'm an American going to be married to a hot English guy... Okay, maybe that's not so much of a brag as it is a fantasy come true...

I successfullly made a loaf of bread by using a yeast I cultured from what remained of my primary fermenter (been wine making) and got it active enough to grow me a beautiful loaf of bread. I wasn';t sure how well this would work as I never made bread without using off the counter yeast.

That's amazing! :D I bet it tastes even better since you made it yourself. Definitely something worth bragging about. 

 

My brag is nowhere near impressive... it's that I found a place that does this really delicious vegetable bread and oh my god it's so good. But I didn't make it myself, so... :P

I got a 99% final grade in a tough-ish subject (Administration). I was the person with the best grade in the class. I managed to get 100% on the exam! I got out of the exam feeling super shaky and under the weather because of stress and some health issues. But I managed to perform well regardless, so I'm proud of myself. I can't imagine how I'll be able to be when I get to feel 100% again.

My current grade point average is 98%

I'd better hope I can keep this up for the rest of the semester....

Time to toot my own horn, I guess. If you want to, check out some links... I guess. Guessing, I guess.

I'm pretty proud of being a self-taught artist that's.... okay, I guess. (DA: https://sinnexcryllic.deviantart.com/ It's a secondary account, with little watchers.)

I'm good with a slingshot

I read Harry Potter in second grade. 

I can play two instruments - bass guitar and violin

I know three languages - English, Mandarin, Spanish

I'm currently a first-dan brown belt in japanese karaate, might take my black belt test next year. 

I'm a straight-A student, but then again, it's all been in middle school and elementary, so who knows what'll happen in high.

I write meh-ish stories ( https://www.wattpad.com/user/SinnexCryllic )

I plan on going to college, becoming a marine, and then being an artist or a designer for who-knows-what.

 

I feel as bragging has therapeutic qualities. One tends to focus on the things they do well in life when bragging, and that may induce a euphoric effect.

A.K.A. Bragging makes you feel real good.

@thewisdomninjaYour first point makes me so happy for you! 

 

Let's see...

- My doggie is awesome and has recently been coming to pick me up at work with my mom, which is a totally awesome way to end a stressful work day

- I'm reading a freaking amazing story right now, and feeling so privileged that I get to read it before it's published.

Omg so I'm so anxious and excited. I work in greenhouses (my dad has run greenhouses his whole life, and so did his father). I started working for my father's company last spring, and I'm currently taking a Greenhouse Management class... I've been very involved, and I've learned a lot. And my father's boss approached him today and said that if I would be willing to work as head grower (for a 500+ acre facility) he would pay for my master's degree in horticulture. 

 

I'm so nervous! This is a no brainer in what I need to do, but I wasn't expecting this. The head of the Agribusiness dept. at my university offered me free grad school for a masters in Agribusiness a few weeks ago, but I don't want to be an economist or a professor, so I turned it down. I never expected to go to grad school. But I'm so confused and behind. Applications start this month, and I don't even know if I'm eligible for the program. I have the grades, but idk if I have the prereqs. Ahhhh I'm just so happy. My boyfriend is so excited for me too and so supportive. I may have a career.
