Basically I have 3 spots I am going to evaluate for mining viability.
Been doing some basic geological mapping, took a few samples, and am waiting for assays to happen.
I already know one of them is interesting for Titanium. But what I find will be different for all 3 spots.

1. Should have Titanium, iron and possibly rare-earths (platinum?)
2. Should have silver, copper, gold, lead
3. We're not sure yet.

Now to find out how much, and if its worth mining. And estimate the size and for #2 the origins.
Only found it in till (soil from the last ice age), so we have to track it down.

So in continuation of my work story saga, I figured I'd give an update.
The medical provider has been canned.
Before leaving she told the CFO that he was a coward who runs away from his problems.
This is good because it further supports the reality that I tried to convey which is: she's a fucking idiot.
I have no idea how she had people fooled into thinking she was worth much, her communication sucks her sales ability sucks and she's lazy.
Today we had a new provider who is obviously superior, sadly they are just a fill in.
Hopefully the new provider they're training to bring on will be good or at least able to be molded.

Ah yes and the gf decided she was moving out but as of last week she wanted to hang out with me again. I just let her be a Se-aux and figure shit out by doing it. I don't think we're actually split to her, she is just moved out lol - whatever.

My business partner (ISTP) is driving me up the wall. Why can’t he stop and look at ALL the information before making a decision. It’s like I start talking about an issue, a choice or a possibility and he jumps in with an answer before I’ve laid everything out for him. He likes to obsess over details which are totally irrelevant and beyond our control too. I like working with him because he’s brilliant at what he does & the technical side of the business, but he can’t seem to grasp the operational and managerial parts of it. So tired of needing to “bulldoze” him into listening, considering and making the right choice (which is of course my preferred choice, because it’s the best one from all the information available).
Rant over.

I miss having friends around me to do stuff with. I'm currently sitting up by myself with two little ones asleep while in a cabin in the mountains. If it were me and a friend; I'd sit up, make a camp fire and chat and have a few drinks. Instead, I'm about to just go lay down and sleep because it's freezing and I've talked to myself enough for today.

I'm socially bored. And there's no doing much about that right now. The closest thing to a Good Friend moved to the other side of the country end of last year, the other is way too wrapped up in her anti vaxx activism and doesn't like outdoors stuff too much and the two mums I know through Kids are not really a major match in terms of personality.

Is a campfire buddy too much to ask for? I mean, I guess I have an SO but he is either at work or out fishing or hanging with friends. So that's no help either.

Sometimes I watch disturbing films, films that are weird enough for me to not openly admit I've even watched them. Antichrist by Lars is one of them. I watched The House That Jack Built ... today and I found it moderately disturbing but not too bad. However it reminded me of a film that isn't necessarily considered disturbing but .... to me it really is: What Dreams May Come. The theme of that movie is just like - fuck dude.

First course of my new uni degree starts next week. The material was posted online yesterday. Aside from the final quiz and a report that hasn't been put online yet, I finished the first two weeks in a day. I'm probably a little excited. Have looked forward to this for so long. Yay :)

So starting to work in the real world full time has been great. I’m about a quarter and a half in and I’d say today was my first true victory.

My boss is senior project manager. He’s in charge of a construction contract around 300 million. It’s the largest within our line of work happening in the whole region.

His boss is a junior VP overseeing that and other large projects in the local region

His boss a senior vp is in charge all our national contracts.



Well the junior VP (my bosses boss) sent out an email marked as important with the starting line introducing me as the creator a spreadsheet I had created that allows for us to streamline all timesheets for our field employees based on their daily reports. (Saving a ton of man hours) that I created under my own initiative.

This marked as important email was sent directly to the CFO and accounting manager with the senior VP cced.

A little innovation goes a long way! And a little recognition feels great!

Forgot my cell phone at work today. I realized it about half way home and decided - fuck it I am not going to go back and get it... who needs a cell phone. Then when I got home I realized that I use that damn thing as my alarm clock. So now I'll have to get creative to wake myself up on time. If I don't wake up at least no one will bother me about it.

I just saw this post at the top of the page and had to ask: How's it going? In general, are you funding the project on your own or are you working with an institution? Where are you having your samples evaluated? And how's it going?

My university is focused on metallurgy and mining and my boyfriend has already done similar projects in the past, so I'm wondering how differently other people might approach locating and evaluating mining spots.

For my general random thoughts:
It's been so long since I've been on here and I actually really like the new layout! I've only recently started looking into MBTI again and realized that now as an adult and with an ENTP for comparison around me all the time, I'm definitely an ENTJ and not an ENTP. It's kind of interesting, because my ENTP and I are very similar in a LOT of ways, but our thought-processes that lead us to thoose similarities tend to be very different. I'm also very different from how I was back when I was 15 and got on here the first time; it's crazy to think about it. (From the typical nerdy teenager who spent all her day talking to friends all over the world on skype and playing league of legends to a young science student, working (and teaching) at university while living on her own and adulting like a pro - I keep my apartment clean, actually go to the doctor when I need to and have dealt with insurance companies and home repairs)

I saw a patient who was from another clinic. Told her that she wasn't a good fit for our office because she didn't follow her treatment plan at the other office and essentially told me she had no intention of doing so at our office.
I took the time to explain why she wouldn't fit what we do. I listened to her, gave her advice on what to do to treat her condition.

She just kept objecting and I just kept overcoming.
When you expect to be treated for free and act like your time is the only time that matters, what world are you from?
Both of our time matters which is why I am telling you very nicely that you would be wasting my time if I took you as a patient because I wouldn't recieve any payment.

Her pushy nature annoyed me, a part of me feels bad she wasn't a good fit.
However doing pro-bono work isn't really my thing because making money is important.

I haven't even owned a TV set in years, and don't miss it. However... I have somehow gotten hooked into the series Alone, offered through Amazon. Today, the new episode drops on television I think, but I will have to wait until tomorrow to see it on Amazon.

Fuck.

At the moment it's going slowly.
Had a fellow at the national geological survey check it out; he was supposed to do essays for me. But their (new) boss choose to drop those practices.
So I'm waiting for several samples to get shipped back to me and then have them assayed at ALS. On recommendation, probably a full spectrum elemental assay.
I am funding the preliminary steps myself.
