  • Expectations explained in brief. Is that gonna be a problem for you? Agree. Checkmark.

  • Schedule? I don't have a schedule until school starts. Will be here every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 7:00. Monday there's a board games night at the Long Haulf board game nights ensued, followed by a meta-discussion of promotion of non-sudo events during the sudo meeting^Wparty.)
  • Matt summarized the further membership process, including the Extended Pondering, and how to donate, and mailing lists, and some of the various accounts available to (prospective) members.
  • Additional volunteered information: I love helping people out. I don't believe in time or space. I blacksmith knives. I made a steel rose. I made these earrings. I 3-D print things. I do a bunch of shit all the time. All sorts of shit.
  • I don't do drugs/alcohol, like climbing mountains, shooting bows, martial arts, meditation. See, numchucks(sp). Also breathing. Whole point of martial arts is to breath. Just to think about the body, we're disconnected and don't think about our bodies... treat them like cars, use the cheapest fuel, only take them in to get checked out when they're broken down... only get a body, they're not machines.
  • What do you want to do with your life? Looking forward to dying, actually. I'm the kind of person who gets more excited about the wrapping paper than the actual presents.
