You can use cedar as flooring, we have a cedar staircase. It's torn the **** up but whatever it works. Seal it. I just installed a cork floor in a lake cabin a few weeks ago. You'll have to cut tongues and grooves though, which in itself is barely worth it, much less for a cedar floor. Just buy discount flooring at lumber liquidators. Or better yet get click lock laminate and just put it over the current floor. **** cheap and looks good a d is easy to clean.

I already moved out. I have my own living room/kitchen/bathroom now. I was not going to take up any new responsibilities on top of my job, school, and a tweaked back.

Oh and my dad got fired from his job of 18 years and he wasn't told why.

I could be wrong, but don't they legally need to tell you why?

Discontent: I made the wrong choice getting a .45 over a 9mm. Two almost identical guns, same price, and I chose .45, which is around $17 a box, over 9mm which is $11 a box. Why is ammo so expensive.

Also, I went to two local stores to find some shotgun reloading powder I need, and they almost laughed me out of the place. Apparently Hodgdon Clays powder hasn't been in stock in almost two years...

California is an at-will state, meaning that a business can fire anyone at any time for no reason whatsoever. The employee must sign a paper acknowledging this upon being hired if the businesses chooses this route. If the businesses is not at-will, then it's illegal. Whatever, they made a huge mistake firing him because he was the one making the money. My dad said he would just start his own pest-control company, and I believe he has the skills, reputation, investors, and the right people to make it work. We did some math over the phone and we figured that he'll pay off his investment in the first half of the season if he reaches his projected sales.

Well I hope he does well, if only to show them that they were wrong.

Discontent: My professor for the Experimental Chemistry 2 class I'm taking this term is an old guy that doesn't even show up for classes most of the time, much less actually teach us anything. Good news is that the TA that runs the labs is awesome and seems like she is having fun running the class herself.

Well, I'd hope you were un-ionized too. If you were ionized you'd have some serious problems... :lol: (yes, I know that my inner chemistry nerd is showing)

Having Stats and Calc back to back is starting to get to me. I should probably start doing the homework, might help.

On the bright side, finally got to put my 6094 through it's paces. But I couldn't find my GoPro housing, so I couldn't film.

I find it weird, when I go to a field, and there be kids that I help teach their PSR class.
