Finished my mechanical engineering degree
Success: More work done before 10AM on a Saturday than I was able to get done in the second half of the week. Amazing what a quiet office and phone can do for you.
Over the two weeks I would do more harm than good, even if theoretically. I wouldn't be looking to close any deals, and if I spent too much time talking to my now-ex-coworkers, it could further diminish morale.
It's pretty standard procedure, and I didn't take it personally.
New job starts in two weeks. This will be the best vacation I've had in terms of total relaxation.
Was just reminded because Thriller came on Pandora. After hard work and much conjecture, my co-worker and I discovered the source of the "Funk of 40,000 years"; it's what happens when you open up the washing machine and discover clothes that you forgot to throw in the dryer last week. I'm preparing to submit my findings to the Ig Nobel committee
After switching from running to cycling over a year ago because of chronic shin splints I unintentionally ran 8 miles on Sunday with no problems
Went on a long ride, got a flat, realized I only had a patch an forgot to bring an extra tube/tire. Got within 8-9 miles of my car and the tube blew out again. I walked a while and decided instead of calling someone I'd try to jog/run back to my car since I was annoyed about not getting a full ride in. Had a backpack on and rolled my bike along... couldn't believe I made it one piece and made it home to see the end of the Flyers game.
Witnessed a hit and run, immediately made the decision to chase them down. Succeeded in obtaining plate #'s and turned around. Just as I was giving the lady their plates, the guys pull up. They must have realized I followed them. Boy were they giving me some dirty looks.

My wife passed her boards almost 2 years after she graduated (repository therapy) with out hardly studying for them. Great success for her you say? As soon as she gets a job it takes a huge load of pressure off of me. I might be able to get my masters. I might be able to get another job. I don't want to get cocky, but there is a potential I might not have to be the primary bread winner. Literally 6 years of hassle hinged on this morning. Sweetass.
I have a set of Blows Quiet comfort2s that I got as a hand me down. Worked well about a year ago and then the sound became distorted and distant.
Found out that the headphones have a replaceable cable that pulls right out of the right headphone. Plugged it back in, now they work.
New apartment means my commute, which has been an hour each way, pretty much all highway, is now a short walk to the train station followed by a 17 minute ride. Much more importantly, though, I'm not even moved in entirely yet, but I feel more at home than I have since I was like 8 years old.
I love success.
Tried my hand at some paint correction / scratch repair on my wife's Taurus wagon. Last fall one of my kids scratched the hell out of the passenger side of the car with his bicycle (the metal handle of the handlebar was exposed....it was like he keyed the car )
Anywhoo...I picked up a bunch of detailing supplies - new Griot's DA polisher, some cutting and polishing pads, Optimum Compound and Polish, and some 2000 grit paper if I needed to wet sand (I did):
Passenger door before: (pay no attention to my uncharacteristically messy garage)
Took a couple of hours, but happy with the results.
Went to the doctor (found a new one since I moved recently) to see about a lump on my hip - wife thought it could be a hernia. Turns out the doctor (FEMALE DOCTOR) thought it was only a lymph node or maybe a strained muscle or tendon. Now for the actual success:
I did not - I repeat - I DID NOT pop a boner. However I did have a little scent since I have bog balls today.
