    KCKoopa (Il y a 3 ans) #3122606Hello AGC :)
    Thank you so much! Yes I assist in production of bulletproof windows and windshields. We just so happen to be competing for a MATV contract and pumping out windows like crazy. They are so very thick and heavy. One side window can easily surpass 175 lbs and 5.5 inches thick if that gives you an idea of what we deal with on a almost daily basis haha.
    No worries. I too haven't studied the AX schedule all that much lately. I'll give it a good look while Im in line for registration tomorrow evening. I would like to attend the Fate/UBW panel if I can but need to purchase the tickets for it fast if I were to make it. I'm certain that I will figure out a more detailed personal schedule before long as do you. Hope we can plan a meetup. I'll even introduce you to my significant other if you would like.
    Haha well if they are your landlords then they most certainly need a decent place to sleep. A couch that unfolds to a bed perhaps? In the end, hope your not sacrificing your comfort for the sake of theirs.

    Hey KC!

    Sorry again that we weren't able to meet up during AX; wound up being busier than I'd thought! Plus it took forever to get anywhere with all the people everywhere, lol.

    Wow, those are some heavy and thick windows! Must not be so great for fuel efficiency on limos, haha. Time to invent transparent aluminum (Star Trek reference)!

    Did you make it to the Fate/UBW panel? What other events/panels did you get to check out? I actually took in a few more than I usually do and they were all rather good. The highlight was probably the Big Hero 6 one. What were your highlights?

    Ah, I don't have any furniture like that, unfortunately. In fact, most of my furniture is what they left behind when they moved, lol. I'll figure it out, hopefully. ;;

    KCKoopa (Il y a 3 ans) #3104117Hello AGC! :]
    Apologies for the late reply :(
    Been having a bit of trouble as of late with my time management especially considering I got a new job position since our my last reply. I ended up with a job allocated in Sylmar where I'm assisting in manufacturing of windshields and windows for military/commercial applications.
    Thank you for your continued support for my job hunt. Looks as though it ended quite well. Also from how things stand, I will not be able to attend Day 1 of Anime Expo because of work being a 6a-2:30p Monday through Friday position. Thankfully they gave me Friday off for 4th of July weekend so I suppose that is not too bad in the end just missing one day.
    I also understand that Anime Expo is fastly approaching. Still feeling for a meetup this year? If so, I can send you a PM with my contact info if a group meetup is out of the question.
    You may say that your willpower is weak atm but I feel that regardless you have the power to pull through any and all obstacles that come your way. In term of places for your summer guests to sleep, there is always the couch right? Heck if space is even tighter than that, there is always the tub haha!

    Hey KC!

    No worries, I know how it is. Congratulations! Sounds like an interesting job. Are you making bulletproof windows? :D

    At least you'll be able to attend three of the days! I haven't taken a very close at the schedule yet, but most of the big events don't happen until Friday or Saturday most of the time anyway.

    Thanks for your PM. I'm not very good with organizing meets but if you happen to know any other MFCers attending it'd be cool to meet them!

    Haha, thanks for the encouragement. But, can't really put these guests on the couch or tub since they're technically my landlords, lol.

    KCKoopa (Il y a 3 ans) #3011419Hey AGC :)
    Im getting used to the weather here in the valley Lack of humidity is one of the big differences so it makes warmer here alot more bearable. I've looked into In-N-Out as well as Costco beforehand only to not even get a reply back. My search continues but lately I've been getting a few nibbles on the job hunt. Wish me the best! :D
    Oh I can share plenty of crazy stories of me working graveyard shifts back at the casino. You'll hear them soon enough xD
    I'm looking forward to a potential meetup at AX. Perhaps we should create a MFC group meetup that plans on attending AX. How does that sound? Has such ever been done as of yet?
    As my father always says: "When there is a will there is a way."
    You'll "figure" out some means of balancing your collection that consists of the right amount of qualities to make it both more space saving and continued appeal in your mind/heart.
    You can do this! I know you can.

    Hey KC! :)

    Yeah, the dry heat is way better than the nasty, sticky kind, lol. Although, it did hit the triple digits down here yesterday and it was pretty not fun.

    I'm sorry to hear the job hunt has been progressing slowly. Have you looked into any temp agencies since my last comment? AppleOne, Staffmark, Manpower, Express... I'm not sure what's up where you are. Hopefully you'll get something soon! I'm pulling for you.

    I'm looking forward to hearing those stories! I'm not sure if there's a specific group/forum for AX2015, but I know I've seen other ones on here. I'll have to poke around when I get a chance (might not be for a while though, lol). I also don't have a badge yet so that might make things a bit tricky. ^^;

    Haha, my dad says that too! Right now, though, my will is kind of weak. Every time I think about it, I wind up finding something else to do. I really need to do it soon, though. I'm expecting visitors at some point during the summer and I kind of need to find a place for them to sleep. xD;

    KCKoopa (Il y a 3 ans) #3011335Yessss the site is going really sluggish as of lately.
    Im so much as getting timed out on occasions. Me no like :<

    Ok thanks so it's not just me I have been trying to post things and get timed out all the time it's frustrating. I am glad to have at least reached someone I knew who was a frequent poster so I could ask if you had issues as well.

    KCKoopa (Il y a 3 ans) #2965867Its fairly nice up here. Just a little toasty since it resides in the San Fran valley.
    At this point in time, Im willing to get anything I can get. Any job. It doesn't matter for me anymore. I just need something to take up the majority of my time during the weekdays. Of course I still have my interests in Atmospheric Sciences but entry level positions there require some form of internship which most of them do not pay.
    I feel you. Sleepy time is good time :)
    Who can say no to a pillow at random times of the day. I used to be there not too long ago back when I had my graveyard shift position at a casino. Not fun times xD
    I wouldn't mind a meetup at AX this year at all. I would like that :)
    Yep! The toughest part of having a collection is miniaturizing it and to decide what stays and goes.
    It;s heartbreaking for me to even think of such with my collection. I tend to find it difficult to categorize figures even to my top 50%. Each figure has its own unique quality that gives each their own sentimentality and reason to hold on to them. But if time and space issues call for it, I would find a way to keep almost everything I have though. Each has their own story.
    I have no doubts in you my friend that you'll find a way :)

    I'm not too familiar with the SF valley, but I know SF Bay tends to be chilly and foggy. Maybe you can get a little closer to that area? It's pretty expensive over there, though.

    Ah, I see. That's pretty rough. Maybe you can do an internship while also working part-time at a paying gig? In-N-Out, for example, is apparently a great place to work, with above-minimum pay and benefits. You could also try looking into temp agencies; most of our new people are temp-to-hire and I'm sure we're not the only ones.

    You worked in a casino? That sounds like it might've been pretty interesting, actually. You must have lots of stories involving drunken insomniatic gamblers, lol.

    Cool! We'll have to set something up as AX approaches. It's always fun to meet MFCers and walk the dealers hall and whatnot. :)

    The problem with my collection is exactly what you point out -- most of my figures don't have stories. Some I kind of acquired en masse through purchases of lots; some were impulse buys. The ones that do have a story I'd keep. But the ones that I picked up just because they were cool or pretty or cheap -- there's really no connection to those, and I prolly shouldn't waste the space on holding on to them, no?

    Thanks for the vote of confidence! We'll see how it goes. ^^

    KCKoopa (Il y a 3 ans) #2942166Thank you for the birthday wishes friend :)
    It has been a minute hasn't it?
    I'm doing quite well and settling in quite nicely at my place in Northridge.
    Currently job hunting for a secondary for some additional income and financial stability.
    Also need to prepare for Anime Expo since summer is right around the corner.
    Will you be attending the expo this year as well?
    How are things with you?

    Ah, never been to Northridge. I hear it's pretty nice up there!

    I hear ya, extra income can't hurt. What kind of gigs are you looking at? Are you still doing meteorology as well? Wish I had the energy, I'm always so sleepy, lol.

    Yep, AX is coming up in a couple of months. I think I'll be going this year. Maybe we can meet up at the GSC booth. ;D

    Been a bit busy as of late. Lots of stuff going on at work, trying to get my film finished for the summer cons, want to whittle down my collection. I'd like to get it back to meaningful pieces, like when I first started. It's hard to enjoy it all when it's kind of become this unfocused mess, haha.

    Happy birthday! It's been a while. Hope you're well and settling in here in Cali!
