Apr. 23, 22: Routine, FIRE Dump, Model A Engine Swap, Oculus, TV, and Games
Slept from a little before nine until a little after five, so not a bad one tonight! 👍 Close enough to call it good. 😁
Cryptos still pulling back pretty hard and BTC is back below $40k. 😱😢 That did give me a slightly better opportunity to exit my position on FIRE, which, after over a year I am finally free of! I took a hard hit, several thousand dollars worth, but that’s what I get for listening to Ray and his scam investing schemes. I have made a little of it back on BRO tokens, but I’d have to sell them to realize that.
I guess that really was the big news for the morning…actually pulled the trigger and withdrew. Had a bit of a panic attack for a minute there because when I withdrew my LP tokens I didn’t actually get my funds back, but I did eventually get what little I could out (about $188 🤬🤬🤬) and swapped into MATIC. Now I just need to bridge it over to Hive (and break the habit of needing to go into Metamask and check it every morning).
Yay, I actually had some plans for today and I went out and was social with the Model A club. 😄 One of the guys had literally blown out an engine:
They’d already pulled that old engine out when I got there and were preparing the transmission to put the “new” one in:
Pretty nifty motor mount deal they had there, could wheel it around:
I got in the car on the driver’s side and held the transmission in place and got it aligned as they put the engine in place. Had to use a special tool to actually bend the chassis to get it to fit, but ten guys made fairly short work of it:
It was getting on about lunch time and I figured they still had a bit of work to do, so I didn’t stick around to see it fire up, just headed back home. Grabbed a sandwich for lunch and then couldn’t resist the urge to play Oculus.
I played a round or two of Beat Saber since (I was disappointed to find) it didn’t preserve my progress on Pixel Ripped from yesterday. 😡 I was going to jump back in after Beat Saber to finish out the game, but I remembered there was a new expansion for Resident Evil 4! 😁🥳
It was a free download and it added a whole new section to the game with all kinds of different challenges and bonuses to unlock. Resident Evil 4 is by far the best game on the Quest and this only made it better! I made it through some of them four-star and unlocked some other levels.
Some are really tough…like there was one where you have a one-shot kill hand canon, but only headshots count, any other hot or miss hurts you!!! Super challenging! Several hours just vanished like nothing and I got booted when the headset shut itself down due to battery!
Of course, that meant that I had to take a break and I did some chatting over on Discord then (and throughout the day) and I finally broke up into the top ten! 💪 Pretty sure all that’s worth is the realization that I spend way too much time in there! 😛
Nah, actually, it’s a lot of fun and I have quite a lot of tokens to show for the time I’ve spent in there. I even learned something today: the rules of the internet. Like: ALL CAPS IS CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL.😂
A couple of people in the server happened to stumble on Solairitas and we got a bunch of new members!!! 💪 Spent some time getting everyone set up, but I am a little concerned that VP may become strained…keeping a close eye on it.
Wenche was working late today and so I made myself a bowl of soup for dinner and mucked around on Discord until pretty late and then played my Splinterlands quest. When she got home, we watched some tube until bedtime.
Woah! Earth-shattering dShitty news!! My negative thirty-five stated income actually changed to negative thirty-three. 😮 It moves! My actual income remains at six out of the hundreds I should be getting every day. 🤬
I honestly can’t remember if I went in twice on Rising Star today or not. 🤔 I’m sure I did in the morning, but vaguely recall doing a lesson? Dunno. Just slowly trying to hoard Starbits.
Never did go in on the computer and click buttons on HashKings today. Almost a hundred percent certain that I’ve gotten fucked and my plants are dead. 🤬 Thinking I need to just chalk this one up to experience, dump out, and not jump into stuff just because it’s popular in a Discord server.
I went in at a reasonable time early this evening to play Splinterlands, but I still had like a half hour before the quest reset. 😢 Ended up getting involved with other stuff and it was seriously late before I actually reset it again (which means super late again today 😭).
It was late enough, in fact, that I very seriously considered just leaving it until tomorrow, but I know how that usually goes, so I just decided to play.
Had Life splinter for my quest today, but I wasn’t trying to struggle with that, so switched it and got Earth instead. Got it done still in Gold I and lost a bit of rank. Not very good rewards today, but I guess that archer is alright:
Staked my SPS drop for the day, which fell hard again - by like another full one. 😢. Otherwise, still just waiting for vouchers to spike again and stockpiling some more to move out.
