People still buy stock images and clip art. How very droll.

I recently got into vinyl records as a hobby and I'm really enjoying it. I realized that music listening in my life was becoming mainly just background noise on shuffle. However, once I started getting into records, my interest in music felt renewed.

Listening to an album start to finish no longer is an option, but a requirement, and that's proven to be a good thing. I've delved into artists or genres I normally wouldn't give a chance. Also, if your in any way a collector of things, owning albums with their cover art is 10x cooler than a jewel case. I haven't tried very hard, but if I wanted, I see the potential to meet a shit ton of different people via the hobby simply at record stores and shows.

Sounds fun. What's the most you've paid for a vinyl? My dad has a pretty cool collection from his younger days. Was fun to go through it with him recently.

I've paid up to about $40 for one album. I'm buying a mix of used and new albums at this point. I've kind of made a stance of buying everything new on vinyl when it's an option, as they often come with digital downloads anyways.

We've been getting into antiquing over the past couple years. My father in law owns an antique store in Augusta, GA and when he visits we usually get a new piece. I've been collecting beer steins for a while but have not found any good ones lately. The best part of antiquing is just the search for the items that are unique and valuable. There are a lot of strange antique shops and hillbilly flea markets in this state which make the search extremely interesting. We only have about 5 pieces with a value of around $1000 with a set of vintage Pfaltzgraff dishes probably worth the most. Here are pics of some of the items:



Some of the Steins bought from various places, Sadly the most expensive one is probably the Denmark stein which is not vintage and given to me as a gift.



Liquor barrels and shot glass set from the 50's


Roseville Pottery Vase from the 30's-from Roseville, OH and a cool cast iron eagle I found buried in weeds at this crazy hillbilly's junk sale



Carnival Glass From the 20's

The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them.

Eh I'm OK. I'm going through the motions of adulthood at the moment (career, homeowner, blah blah). Things have become a little bit too routine though so I definitely need to shake things up a bit.

Nostalgia makes me feel obligated to give you all more. I feel as though in a certain way, I grew up with all you Nubblies folk. I'm not proud of some of the post I made (Paris Jen anyone?), but alas, here I am. Nubblies has become the journal of mine I hope no one ever finds.

Update to my life. I am a 2+ year homeowner, going on 4 years into my career as an IT data analyst. My job functions range from anything database administration related to C# development. I've been single since about August of last year, and have shamelessly been giving online dating a chance without much success. My life has become a bit too routine for my liking. I go to work, put in my 8-9 hours, come home, maybe work out, watch the Tigers and listen to a record or two, pass out, rinse and repeat. Once in awhile there's a deviation from this, but overall, that's my current, boring life.

I've never been very outgoing, nor do I seek that. However, it's becoming apparent I need a definite happy medium. Social anxiety has been the number one enemy of my life. However, as I become older, I question this sometimes. Is it anxiety that keeps me from activities? Am I anxious to dance for instance, or do I just not give a shit? In a lot of regards, I'm leaning towards the latter. Either way, the last year or so has definitely made me question things like this.

Doing the "important" things in life has been easy thus far. Go to school? Check. Get a degree? Check. Career? Check. It's been a no-brainer, and often I've just gone through the motions to do what I had to do. I think though at this point I'm getting ready to find someone to potentially start a family with and go through the next major steps of life with. In the past I wasn't committed to the idea of kids, but as I've gotten older, the idea has really grown on me. I definitely want to see my own - I want to see my genes grow up, no offense to adoption, but seeing "you" is the coolest part to me.

So yeah, hobbies. I like listening to records.

What are some non-career related goals?

What's your dream?

Where would you like to travel?

Any female prospects?

If you have social anxiety there are a number of upstanding Nubblites who could no doubt provide you with some good, solid manvice (manly advice, i.e. advice for men, by men).

I need more, Nathan.

Drink until you're comfortable in social settings.

I have a hard time having serious conversations with others about the social anxiety, not because I think others advice isn't worthwhile or anything, but most people I think just don't get what I'm going through sometimes. If there is one thing I would change about myself, it undoubtedly would be my anxiety. I didn't realize it was there until high school, and it wasn't until later in college when I was truly able to put my finger on what it was. I realize it's all on ME, and only I have the power to make it better. It's just tough, and something I take day to day, and will be a lifelong struggle. It's not that I don't go out, or don't talk to people though. A lot of the anxiety is situation based for sure too. The venue, the activity, the people, etc. It's typically the "unknown" situations (a new place, something I've never done, people I don't know) that give me the biggest problems. And yes, drinking can help lighten the mood for sure, but I still feel way too conscious of everything sometimes even when I am drunk. But just so it's clear, yes I go out (bar, casino, concerts, sporting events, etc) but that doesn't mean it's always easy for me.

My life ambitious, goals, etc. really are generic as hell. I want the typical "American Dream", with the least amount of stress and pain along the way. That's all I really ask for. Perhaps that's a problem, I don't know. As far as travel, I'm not huge on it, but if I am going somewhere, it's less to experience a different culture and more so because I have interests in the geology, scenery, etc.

As I mentioned, I've been using online dating and have had a few dates over the last few months, but nothing has really amounted to anything yet. There's a few ladies I hang out with on occasion that are more friend-zoned than anything else at the moment, but there's a potential for something in the future. I definitely am seeking a relationship though, but I'm not dwelling on it. Hardest part for me though these days is it's a lot harder to meet people being out of school, friend groups are becoming smaller as people become older, and now being in my "career", co-workers technically shouldn't even be on my radar (although I've definitely entertained the idea with one).
