Every time I see the "bitch about life" thread hit the top of the list, I find myself thinking, why not something where we can actually talk about what's good in our lives?

Everyone has bad times; but unless something is really, really wrong or your perspective is just totally skewed, you should also have some good times. Why not put out something positive now and then?

Personally, after having been unemployed for six months and having applied to a ton of jobs with no luck, I finally got one. Granted, it's not my idea of a dream job, but the pay is good and there should be ample opportunity for overtime. So, I can finally start working on getting the rest of my life back on track instead of spinning my wheels - pay off some debts, make some improvements and, of course, buy more games!
I don't really have anything particularly profound to add, just wanted to say that this is a good idea for a thread and congrats on finding a job. :)
At first I thought this was some sort of faith based group initiative. :|

Ontopic: Today I popped open a tasty bag of skittles....mmm.(No that isn't a euphemism for something dirty. :P)

I also started playing and enjoying Ben There, Dan That. Great game.

Well, I was going to wait before posting about this on the GOG forums, but...

For the past few months I've been working on my very own game, and now it's finally feature complete.

I've posted about my game on the forum for the game engine I'm using and am currently waiting for some feedback. I want to add music support to my game, though since I'm no composer I'm not sure I'll be able to include any music. Beyond that, I need to bundle the game in a proper application that everyone can download.
Well, that's a few anyway - more than I expected. :-)

Good luck, Aaron!

Thanks, Gazoinks!

GameRager: be sure to brush your teeth. :-)

grats on your job, better to have a job these days (even if not a great one) then nothing at all.

hope to have one soon too. i want to study and get out of this circle , but cant do that without a job.

and as for this topic, we can all use good news in days of darkness.

I've tried to smoke less lately, and it's working. I used to smoke 1 pack a day, but lately i've only been smoking 14-15 a day, and i'm trying to get to 10. Does this count as good news?

I got a new chair. I know it doesn't sound like particularly good news, but the old one was such a POS that it gave me a slight but constant back pain. This new one supports my body much better. It's comfortable as well and, to my mind anyway, vaguely stylish.

EDIT: My apartment is tiny so I spend a lot of my time on my office chair by the PC, so you can imagine how important a proper chair is to me.

What did you do with your old chair? Did you take a bat to it Office Space style?

I've considered it, but it feels bulletproof, even the cloth. Probably the only good thing about it. There's a flea market/recycling centre nearby, so I'll probably give it to them so they can either take it apart or sell it to some poor soul for a fiver.
I won a Big Fish Games coupon code on a Facebook contest .
I got HOMM3 in a giveaway a few hours ago:P
I started to revive my Card/Dice Roleplaying Game, I invented couple of years ago.

Here is a little teaser (sorry, only in german available at the moment):

Hopefully I will find a publisher someday :) (and if not, at least a place where I can produce it much cheaper as at the moment, if someone likes to have the game in German, it is 30 € per Set of 55 Cards + Delivery Costs *gg*)
Good News; I got a job without having to interview!

All about who you know!

Slightly-bad news; it's a short-term (3 day) contract :(

Better than nothing! :)
