This is petty as hell and I like it, haha. Not sure if I can bring myself to do that though. I'm not as pissed off as I was yesterday about it. It still sucks, but whatever. It is what it is. They're shitty people and even if they are using my idea(s), there's no way they can execute it as well as I could. If it works for other people, great. If they fail and can't seem to help others like they should be, then also good. People can move on and find another clinic or center to go to.Since it's on their FB page, I'd make a post thanking them for finally taking YOUR ideas seriously and implementing them. Maybe you can give exact dates when you proposed them or a pretty close approximation. This would be purely for your satisfaction as I'm sure whoever at the company reads your post would deny they didn't listen to you and only moved on the ideas after you'd left and they probably wouldn't think you'd see it. This is just a way of you letting them know you saw what they did there and that it didn't go unnoticed. After all, what are they going to do? They can't write you up or otherwise reprimand you. You've already left.
Oh absolutely. My overall emotional wellbeing has taken a complete 180 since not being active on FB and starting Prozac. I have felt 1000x's better and my mind is so much clearer too. Like I said I only downloaded it for a sale post I had to make, then I stupidly kept it around and fell back into dumb habits. I'll definitely be getting rid of it off my phone again.I found FB to be extremely unhealthy for me. I don't regret deleting it and certainly don't miss it.
The latter is why I've kept my profile, because I still keep in contact with a lot of friends and family that way. I did get a good chuckle seeing a lot of those memes again though lol. But hey, I've taken to lurking on reddit recently. I don't have an account, I just like to browse. There's some good memes on there too haha.I pretty much just stay on it for the memes and easy access to contacting people
I've started getting back into collecting Pokemon cards. I haven't collected any cards in nearly 20 years. The last set I purchased was Aquapolis, and I was so disappointed in the new look of those cards and a lot of the art styles that I quit collecting them. Just like at that same time I hated Gen 3 so much I quit playing the games. What can I say? I was a bitter kid haha. Thankfully Pokemon has redeemed themselves since then.
Last year I found all my old cards at my parents' house in their attic. It was neat to see them all again, and then I put them back in my own storage here. Last year during my unemployment I thought about selling them, but I decided not to and I'm glad I didn't. It's so nostalgic for me seeing my childhood collection, and the past month I've been thinking about collecting. That being said, I had no idea how stupidly expensive it has gotten since scalpers and internet personalities have quite literally turned the TCG into a stocks game. But I'm not partaking in that kind of gambling. Last month I purchased $10 worth of singles and have a list I'm gonna chip away at slowly of collecting my favorite 'Mons and artworks. I'm not collecting for investments or to get graded and then turn around and sell like most are seemingly doing sadly enough. I'm just collecting for nostalgia sake really. And I have to say, a lot of the new cards are absolutely beautiful! Too bad some of my wants are extremely pricey, which is why I definitely won't be purchasing them anytime soon.
Anyways, upon being bit by this nostalgia bug, I decided to frame the Southern Islands promo set I've had. This is the first (and only) complete promo set I've ever owned. No idea what childhood me did with the postcards, but I at least still have all my cards in decent shape. They're not perfect, definitely on the heavily played side, but they're not damaged at all. I decided to frame them since 1) I've always loved this set, 2) figured I should be taking care of them a little better and not let them sit around in a binder anymore, and 3) it's becoming quite a valuable set that I'm lucky enough to still have. I know this didn't come out 100% perfect; anyone who knows me knows I cannot measure properly or draw a straight line to save my ass even with using a ruler. But this was a fun project and I think it turned out great!
I used black acid-free poster board I specifically ordered from Amazon, Dragon Shield UV-protected card sleeves, acid-free adhesive sticky dots, and I got the frame cheap 50% off at my local craft store. I also sprayed the frame and glass with Krylon UV-Resistant clear gloss. Printed the logos on cardstock, cut them out, and mod-podged them too before adhering. Overall it only cost me ~$25 total with everything used. Compared to ~$100 or more for specialty made card frames. Nope wasn't spending that kind of money.
Man that sucks about your cards being stolen. I actually had almost complete sets of the Jungle, Fossil, and Neo Destiny as a kid. I never got to finish them and when I quit collecting I gave away over half of my collection to a cousin. Thankfully I didn't get rid of too many holos, as I still have most of them. Have plenty of the more "plain" cards too. I since purchased a new proper binder to protect them better and have some of the more valuable holos double-sleeved now. Granted my cards aren't worth a whole lot, but it's nice to see them looking better than in clouded card sleeves in a three-ring binder.I used to collect Pokemon Cards as a kid, I had an almost complete set of the original ones but they got stolen. I was devastated and stopped trying to collect them. I got a pile of mixed pokemon cards a couple years ago intending to pick up collecting again but I just havent committed to it
I have an original Charizard as well. I never pulled it myself though, I got it in a trade somehow but I don't even remember what I traded lol. Came to me damaged but little me didn't care because it was the coolest card to own at the time. I guess it still is, but I have other holos I love more.Ooh, Pokemon cards... I didn't have very many back in the day, but my prized possession for a few years was one of the original holographic Charizards that I got in a booster pack for Christmas one year. Charizard was my favorite Pokemon, naturally, and I don't know how rare they actually were, but I was the only person I knew who had one. That was back when everybody was collecting them to some degree.
I don't remember enough details about it to figure out what it might be worth today, but I think my older brother stole it and sold it ~15 years ago. If I still had it, I don't think I would ever sell it.
