I installed a complicated ceiling fan yesterday. The light fixture was cheap and held in place by the ceiling drywall. I had to take it out, cut a larger hole in the ceiling, install a ceiling fan support brace and electric box.. But the real bitch was there were 4 electric lines running to this light fixture as a full junction box. I had to cut and strip 12 stiff as hell wires, and run an additional 3 wires to the ceiling fan. Also stuff all the insulation back into the ceiling while gagging on the particulates of it all in the air.. and jam all those wires into the small ass box. In the end it all worked out. Took me 6 hours. wtf. The other ceiling fans I've done for Lady's mom took me around 2 1/2 hours. 6 hours was a pain. I'll have to do it again for my office room. Same thing, 4 sets of wires, ceiling fan bracket, etc. I bet I could trim 1 hour off that 6 hours tho now that I wont have to stop to search for random answers to things again.

I hear that. I wish I had the money to pay someone to install them and I would have. Same with my gutters. For $40 over the weekend I was able to patch up two drains and fix two elbows and down spouts. I still have 2 more gutters to fix and I still have to replace the end caps of the two I already fixed. x_x the money just flies out the window with a house. And I still have to do my initial bulk order of propane. x_x I blame my health insurance for alot of my recent money issues tho. My doctor did blood work for my liver and didn't bother to tell me they ran every flipping blood test they could. My insurance only wants to give me a discount on all that and is putting the rest to my deductible. wtf. I already paid over $100 and I still owe another $190. wtf. The only benefit of these tests is that I found out ibprofin was wrecking my liver probably more than alochol. wtf.
Whats really funny tho is I realized I see my house as an equivalent of an avatar in a mmorpg game. Instead of buying a new outfit or weapon skin for my character to look fancy, I'm buying new plants, gutters, ceiling fans, etc. to improve the look of my house. I'm already planning on buying halloween decorations and lights.. so I guess my end game will be to make my house a blob of infusions and fancy crap for the holidays.
Real life player housing. Yeah I never ever take Ibuprofen or Tylenol anymore unless I have a really bad fever. If I just have some minor body aches and pain I just deal with it. Just looking at the warning labels is terrifying. I think thats what did it for me... I believe Advil says it can cause intense bleeding of the stomach. That day I was like Nah Fam, I'm done with these, the headache aint that bad.
Yep. Any minor aches, pains or headaches I just let them run their course now.
