  1. This was an enjoyable evening. ^_^

    Every year around this time, the cathedral across from my work hosts a special carol service for therapy and service dogs across the city. Their owners or caretakers are encouraged to bring them along and meet with other local canines who are involved in the field, and to take part in a few unique activities throughout the service recognizing their work and ability.

    What this also means is a hall full of adorable doggos that love it when you go up and pet them! :pinkie:

    Overall, it was really fun. It's great to see the kind of joy our oldest friends can give towards others who need them. :BrightMacContent:

      Aww, that's so awesome! :fluttercutehat:

  2. Hello, hello! It's been a little while. I hope you four are doing well? So, we're not that long out from one of my favorite dates of the year: Christmas! Hearth's Warming, if you prefer. It certainly always makes my heart feel warm, in spite of the cold. Seeing as we're all getting into the festive spirit around here, I was wondering what excites you all most about this time of the year and what some of your own plans are for it? Any secret santas you've been planning to gift to anyone? Maybe a few festivities you're looking to partake in? Or do you just like to take it easy and spend time with friends and family? What would be your most ideal gift, Nyx?
  3. Working in a museum, I've often wondered what it would be like to live inside of a display case.

    Today I had a chance to find out. :mlp_icwudt:

  5. People seem to throw that name at me quite a lot.
  6. Not quite. I work at a heritage center that incorporates Living History into its exhibition, so occasionally they have me playing the part of a Viking or Medieval citizen. History is my passion, but drama/performance is an accompanying hobby, and this sort of work happens to let me utilize my skills in both.
  7. Been a while. Who's next for the chopping block?
  8. I used to go bowling quite a lot when I was a kid. Even played at tournament level for a while and got quite a few trophies from it. Think I still have my own customised bowling balls in my shed somewhere. Emerald green for one and fiery red for another~

      Yeah, I know that I'm generalizing. Guess I've just begun to notice it more now that I'm usually working with them on a more frequent basis. :adorkable:

      Some children are as good as gold while others just treat you like you're a toy and abuse you as such. They have no concept of empathy towards others and believe they can get away with anything because their parents are either inattentive or because they haven't been taught any sense of self-discipline.

      Again, I'm aware this is not inherently the child's fault, just something I've been seeing a little more recurringly these days.

      @Splashee That could be arranged in a future update, perhaps. ;)

      Well, I do agree with that assessment. Back when I was a kid, we would not mess with those much older than us. We would not mess with the 16-17 year olds as they could stuff us in snow or something. Nowadays, kids have phones and know to the extent that they can cause legal problems if they want (thank you nanny state). So kids are becoming more bratty than they were before because of the coddling they are receiving. 

       

      I do not think this will translate well into their future~

  10. I wouldn't mind them so much if they didn't keep making my bedroom a vacation spot. I just can't seem to keep them out for long!
  11. I don't mind walking at night. I tend to find the dark streets and lit up buildings rather peaceful and a good way to clear my head. The only thing that often stops me from doing it is that it's just too darn cold here at night.
  12. It is currently 1:02pm here in Dublin's fair city. About time for lunch for most people.
  13. Good evening and pleasant salutations, Forum Friends! Hope you've all had a good weekend and are feeling refreshed enough to tackle another week. :bedeyes:

    Spent my weekend down at a country house with a few close friends. Sometimes it's nice to be able to step away from the busy city and escape to quieter lands for a while. Sleeping in these places is such a breeze~

    Well, except when the house mice start scratching at the walls. :lostit:

    Overall though, it was a nice couple of days catching up with friends and getting up to some silliness. :P

    Now to get ready for work again. :worry:

      Speaking of work, I ended up working in the rain because I forgot my umbrella. I'm fine though. Compared to a storm last February, this is nothing I couldn't handle

      Good evening! I'm glad you enjoyed your weekend! :SassySaddles2:

      To be honest, I haven't been feeling refreshed recently because of anxiety, but I still managed to have an enjoyable weekend for the most part.

  14. One of the primary reasons I love my current profession (Tour guide/Reenactor) is because of how much I'm able to add to a patron's experience of our exhibition. I love history, so I generally tend to get very enthusiastic whenever I'm discussing it, and my role allows me to interract with others in a fairly casual way. The feedback and appreciation I get from this is what really makes my job worthwhile. On occassion, I have even gotten emails or TripAdvisor reports addressed to me from customers who say that my tours and/or information really pleased them. Never fails to lift my spirits knowing that I've made someone's day that little bit more enjoyable, however slight. So yes, I would say that the happiness of others contributes to my own happiness. It's not the only thing I find joy in, of course. But it at least makes my job feel like much more than a daily grind.
  15. Thank you for the follow! :yay:

    Have one back~ :BrightMacContent:
