Challenge ends July 18th

To follow along you have to understand the genesis of this challenge. About nine days ago I published a community challenge thinking maybe their would be 5 enthusiastic people looking for something to do. I had no idea 43 people would sign up!

Correction: They're not people.

Yup.

Damn Jedis decided to take up this challenge
and I've been trying to keep up with them since! LOL

Follow along

Will you be relieved when this challenge is over?

you can be honest! LOL

·

@merej99 I was going to make a 21st question... but instead popping this to the top with an upvote.

I know a number of us have reached 7 posts... My daily posts "fit" all the challenge specs anyway... should we keep adding to "The Beast II" until the 18th, or just stop sharing to the challenge once we're at 7 posts? What's your preference?

·
·
69
  ·  13 days ago

Definitely keep feeding me those post links until the 18th
I'm doing the daily diary anyway, may as well give you guys a back link to your work until then! :) Good Question

·
·

  ·  12 days ago

Great question @denmarkguy! It will be great to keep posting them so we can still see what you post :)

·
·
·

  ·  12 days ago

I was in doubt if I should keep creating posts type of content, however at the end I decided to enjoy the weekend for a while..

·
·
·
·
61
  ·  12 days ago

That is important too to enjoy the weekend! 😊

·

  ·  12 days ago

The post part was actually too easy, lol, (reminding me to put my link in...and I thought I put my link in for yesterday, but that's a'ight) the commenting part....yeah, I'll be a little relieved, LOL. Actually, if it was winter then it would be no big thing, but I gotsta do more outdoorsy stuff while I can :)

·
·
67
  ·  12 days ago

Yeah, I'm with @dreemit on this one-- I've posted 2-3 full posts daily for months now, so that part was easy enough.

Surprisingly, it's the commenting that was hard... and yes, that was a surprise because I consider myself a pretty active curator. The "problem" is that my average comment tends to be fairly long and addresses the content of a post pretty well... 500+ comments at 60-80 words each... that's quite a lot of typing! For example, this right here is a pretty typical comment for me!

·
·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

I feel this. Most of my comments are pretty lengthy too and I wouldn't have it any other way. In fact, some have been long enough where I thought, "Crap! That could have been a post!" lol

·
·
·
68
  ·  12 days ago

Yes! That's exactly what the issue is, I've even been known to write mine posts in posts, haha! I've definitely gotten better at shortening them up this week!

·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

AHA! If the next challenge is harder, I can point an arrow at @dreemit. lol

·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

@dreemit may get held down on the bunkbed and beaten with soap in socks then, I think I saw that in a movie once

·
·
·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

I know this movie... uh... Full Metal Jacket, right?

·
·
·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

maybe. it was definitely military

·
·
·
68
  ·  12 days ago

Um...I take it back, I take it back...blame @denmark guy, he not only agrees but he does two and three a day, haha!!

·
·
·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

It's on the blockchain @dreemit - I could be evil and launch The Beast UNLEASHED next time around. hahahaaa

·
·
·
·
·
68
  ·  12 days ago

You wouldn't dare!! (Yes you would...shoot! haha)

·
54
  ·  12 days ago

Yes to be honest, I've been sitting in my computer chair far too long and I need to get outside!

·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

You've got 2 FULL DAYS to get 190 comments done. We got your back :)

·
52
  ·  12 days ago

aaa duuh

·
62
  ·  12 days ago

I think Steemit will be glad when I am done with this challenge.

I wasn't trying to do a "transaction". I have been commenting all day lol.

·
·
48
  ·  12 days ago

I need to check how much actual internet data I've used doing his! Little worried about that! Lol...

·
·
·
62
  ·  12 days ago

Are you doing this on your phone?

·
·
·
·
48
  ·  12 days ago

I do my replies on my phone mostly. It's the best piece of technology I have! My phone is connected to my wireless though. If I'm writing a post, then I'm on my computer-saurus-rex.

·
·
·
·
·
62
  ·  11 days ago

Lol. That is hilarious. I have not owned a cell phone in at least a decade. I would be lost without my desktop.

·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

ayayay! Me too. I actually consumed my 6gb of mobile data the in just less than 2 weeks. Basically these times we're working on the challenge. I have subscribed for additional data just to receive messages on whatsapp

·
·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

omg, I can't imagine doing this on my phone!
Hey! My last count you only need 146 comments and you've got 2 full days to do it. Woohoo!

·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

Someone else was getting that message too! @arrliinn I think.
I've never seen that before!

·
·
·
62
  ·  12 days ago

I've seen a message close to that. When I was doing the post for @barrydutton's tab post...My block size was too large and I had to reformat the whole post.

·
·
·
61
  ·  12 days ago

Neither have I...I have been commenting today too...and haven't seen that message...i do get the messages of "can't upvote more than every three seconds" or "can't comment more than once every 20 seconds" LOL

·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

Saw that yesterday and just earlier when I was beginning the "quiz". I had to wait 15/20mins to be able to post again...

·
·
67
  ·  12 days ago

I got that message earlier, too. It went away when I closed my Steemit session and opened it again in a new window.

·
·
·
62
  ·  12 days ago

I just walked away and took a break to eat the food that will be my death...chips and hot sauce.

·
·
·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

Is chips and hot sauce technically food?
Crap! I need to get out of this post or I'll never get to bed tonight. LOL

·
·
·
·
·
62
  ·  12 days ago

You can go to bed after you make sure I am in the winner's circle tomorrow. The Irish lived off of potatoes during famine...I added a vegetable with chiles in the hot sauce.

Depression? No problem, I have chips and hot sauce.

·
·
·
·
·

  ·  12 days ago

so, how did you sleep yesterday :)
I believe I'm about to hit that legendary bandwidth limit soon.

·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

I got that too! I also was posting too fast

·
·
·
62
  ·  12 days ago

I don't know how I can post too fast. I usually leave long comments; I think it's why this took me so long lol.

·
·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

when i started the quiz there were no posts so I was reading and typing some of them quickly, and there is a 20 minimum between posts. i know that cuz steemit told me lol

·
·
·
·
·
62
  ·  12 days ago

Ah yes, the infamous 20 seconds between posts error.

·
·
·
·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

Yeah, I was getting the 20 seconds message when I was adding questions to this post.

·
·
·
·
·
·
61
  ·  12 days ago

Yes I have seen that message too!

·
·
·
·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

i was kinda freaking cuz if i got locked out, which is what the bandwith message looked like, i could not only not finish, but let anyone know why!

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
48
  ·  12 days ago

That's exactly how I was! I texted a friend and was like...uh, did I do something wrong? Make some steemit god angry??

·
·
·
48
  ·  12 days ago

I got it this morning...after I was posting a ton last night, but still, I took a lengthy sleep break!

·
·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

Sleeping is good

·
·
·
·
·
47
  ·  11 days ago

sleeping is a forgotten art in my life right now :)

·
·
·
·
47
  ·  11 days ago

sleep...what is this thing called sleep?

·
·
46
  ·  12 days ago

I got it too, I had to take a break for like 15 minutes then it let me resume commenting

·
·
·
47
  ·  11 days ago

sometimes I have had to wait as long as an hour to post through...I think the key is to leave the site alone completely...no feed surfing...no checking your wallet...no nothing...and you won't have to wait more than 15 - 20 minutes.

·
·
59
  ·  12 days ago

This is definitely my first time of seeing something of this nature @lexikon82

·
·
·
62
  ·  12 days ago

Today was the first time I saw it. I once had a block size too large message for a post. Lots of editing on that one to trim down the file size.

·
·
53
  ·  12 days ago

LOL - You really made me laugh with this one.

But, I was thinking anyway why this occurred, and I think I know.
On the blockchain, every our post, comment or so - better to say every action we take is considered as a transaction.
So, if you were commenting like crazy (like I do now 😜) that's probably why you have received that note.

·
·
·
47
  ·  11 days ago

This is partially true...I have heard of some with over 300 SP encountering problems with normal daily activity...I understand there is a fix in the works since yesterday...something about throwing money at the problem.

LOL that usually works out just fine right? ;p

·
·
·
·
53
  ·  11 days ago

I didn't know about that fix. Hope it would bring us some greater good. 🙂

·
47
  ·  11 days ago

honesty...you want honesty teach...I'll give you honesty lol
if it weren't for this bandwidth issue I probably wouldn't have gotten more than two nights sleep aggregated over the last three days...and this challange might have very well killed me...no joke!

I guess the bigger question is will you be relived when it's over. And wait a minute...how are you going to count my comments in this page anyway...it's so creepy crawly...not even sure this is going to work for me tonight...been almost 3 minutes of lag just making this one comment alone.

Just a heads up for ya here Meredith
~smiles fer miles~

·
·
69
  ·  11 days ago

Oh goodness, it would be madness if I went through each one of these monster posts trying to count your comments! I just go to https://steemit.com/@cryptologyx and peek at your header. If the number moves, I update your progress.

And I've been seeing issues with the bandwidth ever-increasing. It's not the posts. It's actually Steemit witnesses responsibility to keep up.

  ·  12 days ago

I love being on steemit, posting and commenting...participating in this challenge has pushed me to be better and comment more than I usually comment....going to bed at the wee hours! So in part I will be happy to finish, but on the other hand it has helped me a lot...so thank you!

·
·
61
  ·  12 days ago

And I have to add to my comment that I have found great people to follow from the challenge itself! So it's great!

·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

Seconded! This challenge has been a very wonderful experience to everybody.

I am still typing away down to my last 100 comments before closing. Haha

·
·
·
61
  ·  12 days ago

There you go! You can do it @arrliinn! One post at a time...I am almost there I can feel the finish line!! :)

·
·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

ohhh!!! see you there @sgnsteems!...

·
·
·
·
·
61
  ·  12 days ago

See you :)

·
·
·
62
  ·  12 days ago

Lol, are you still typing? It's Only been two hours.

·
·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

I have to stop every now and then... steemit feels the pressure I am on. I always get the bandwidth limit problem. :(

·
·
·
·
·
62
  ·  12 days ago

Lol. Steemit may dislike @merej99 quite a bit right now.

·
·
·
·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

Yeah. She's brought about too much traffic into the platform. Lol

·
·
·
·
·
48
  ·  12 days ago

I had three solid hours to work this morning and I got this message. I was locked out for a good 45 minutes. I don't know what it means, but it was frustrating!

·
·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

You do realize you have ALL of tomorrow and the 18th to get this done, right? LOL
Last I counted you've got under 113 comments to go. ;)

·
·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

Typing away, ma'am! Lol.

·
·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

@merej99, what time exactly is the challenge closing tomorrow? As you know I am in UAE Gmt +4...

·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

agreed

·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

CONGRATULATIONS @sgnsteems

You are in the winner's circle! :D I'm working on publishing the post now. Woohoo! GOOD JOB!

·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

wooooottt woottt!!! way to go @sgnsteems!!!

·
·
·
61
  ·  12 days ago

Thank you! And thank you for all you have done 😊

·
55
  ·  11 days ago

YES!! :)

·
69
  ·  12 days ago

You bet I'll be relieved! I'll be able to go back to sleep...

Doesn't mean I don't appreciate you, however.... :D

😄😇😄

@creatr

·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

I'm on the fence about how I feel about it. On one hand the break would be nice. On the other, I think I'll miss the crazy pace.

·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

Definitely won't be posting 50 comments a day, but will comment on your posts when I see them :)

·
·
·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

Thanks @aboutyourbiz - I'll be keeping an eye out for you too <3

·
·
·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

yay us! I bet there will be a fair amount of that going on

·
·
·
61
  ·  12 days ago

You will be looking at your replies like:

·
·
·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

I already do this. LOL
I've also got my eyedrops at the ready. Time to dive into the Beast Jr. and hunt for links. :)

·
·
·
·
·
61
  ·  12 days ago

Hunt Hunt Hunt....do you find less since more people have finished?

·
·
·
·
·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

Actually, I've still got 21 posts that are going up. Y'all are machines, I think. lol

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
61
  ·  12 days ago

Lol. You created some mean machines!

·
·
·
·
·
·
47
  ·  11 days ago

hahaha...I know her secret math ways of counting comments

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
61
  ·  11 days ago

Lol

·
·
·
·
·
46
  ·  12 days ago

I'm sure eyedrops are a must hahaha

·
·
·
·
·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

Eyedrops and a good amount of coffee. Speaking of which... where the heck did I put my coffee mug???

·
48
  ·  12 days ago

Yes and no! This has been such a great challenge and I've gotten to read some great articles by some great people. Can I keep up this pace forever? No! I'm rarely on my phone or the computer when my kids are awake so my time isn't limited to their sleeping hours...and I need sleep too! Burn I've learned a lot and will keep having myself to read and comment more.

·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

If this is an inoculation of sorts, then at least you know what you're capable of! If you created good Steemit habits out of this at a less crazy pace then I consider my job well done. :)

·
·
·
48
  ·  12 days ago

Yes, yes! It has shown me how important making those connections are. I still have a long ways to go, and I feel like I'm moving way slowly...I read those posts about how people reach 300 followers in a week and I'm at 67 going....

·
·
·
·
47
  ·  11 days ago

not any more you're not...you're at 76 as of this post...you'll be a hundred before you know it...and quality follows...like me fer instance? hahaha!

·
52
  ·  12 days ago

Relieved, yes... but you know we'd still be doing the same.

·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

I personally don't know what I'm going to do without this crazy pace. Ooh, maybe I'll get my afternoon naps back? LOL

·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

That would be wonderful! I look forward to mine as well... :D

·
·
·
47
  ·  11 days ago

Not sure if I've even answered this question yet...been so busy posting in here forget. Like shoot'n fish in a barrel here...so it's now all about the wall...and time.

I will be glad I came from behind and finished...just like the three legged dark horse I know I am. ~smiles~

·
46
  ·  12 days ago

Yes and No, I enjoyed having a goal to work for but deadlines stress me out so I'll be glad to be without one once again

·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

I'm the opposite. I love deadlines even if they stress me out. Livin' dangerously hahahaa.... not.

·
·
·
46
  ·  12 days ago

I just like to lay back and go with the flow, so deadlines make me more productive but also more stressed

·
·
·
·
48
  ·  12 days ago

·
·
·
·
·
48
  ·  12 days ago

That was supposed to be a gif...don't know what happened! Maybe I ran out of internet.

·
·
·
·
·
·
46
  ·  12 days ago

Definitely ran out of internet

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
48
  ·  12 days ago

First I couldn't comment on steemit and now I can't log into my internet provider to check how much data I've used...uh oh...big bills ahead!

·
·
·
·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

Found it! I had to see what it did LOL

·
·
·
·
·
·
47
  ·  12 days ago

Yup, this is me...can you guess which one? I had supper, sat down to finish my post...and promptly fell asleep for 7hrs.

First full night's...ummm...ok early evening sleep I've had since joining Steemit. ;p

Missed the post deadline for toda...errr yesterday too. That's ok though, this was fun and I got to meet some folks I may never have otherwise. ~smiles fer miles~

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
47
  ·  11 days ago

LOl...I had forgotten that sleep...hahaha...did get 2 hrs last night.

gives death the back of my hand

·
·
·
·
·
·
48
  ·  12 days ago

Glad you found it! Don't know what I did wrong!

·
·
·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

I tend to cause more stress for myself because I like to test myself against those deadlines. It's not exactly doing things at the last minute but it kind of is. I don't know why I do that to myself. Self flagellation might be easier.

·
·
·
·
·
59
  ·  12 days ago

I tend to do this more in my school work... the deadline is a drug rush to my brain... it kinda cool though

·
·
·
47
  ·  11 days ago

stress? is that what this is? I thought it was the coffee :P

·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

psst! You're only 46 comments away from the winner's circle!

·
46
  ·  12 days ago

In part I shall - I've been greeting new people in as unspammy a way as I can muster... and I have the Steemit' platform breathing down my neck - I just never know when its going to bite me with a 'bandwidth limit' statement. :cP

I plan on continuing to post - but tone down my introductions patronage - half-heartedly as there are many interesting people who say hi.

·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

I have been nagged by the bandwidth limit error from yesterday... steemit is already complaining. hehe

·
·
·
46
  ·  12 days ago

Oh yes - I am not the only one affected. Though its behaving right now.

'crosses fingers'

I wonder how much I need to spend to buy 50 Steem... :cP

·
·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

yes.. it has been kind to me the past one hour I was on a comment marathon. lol.
we'll keep our fingers crossed.

·
·
·
·
47
  ·  10 days ago

I powered up 20 steem yesterday...it lasted about an hour
don't buy into the fear!

·
·
·
·
·
46
  ·  10 days ago

Thank you for the advice @cryptologyx. Yes I realized the hard way that buying Steem is only slightly helpful. Its something the witnesses and devs need to fix.

·
·
·
·
·
·
47
  ·  10 days ago

yeah...I'm starting to see that it's all about the back end...same as it ever was;)

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
46
  ·  10 days ago

Well at least they are aware tat there is or has been an issue and are working to resolve it. Once that is done - we won't have to suffer unreasonable bandwidth limit issues for a while. :c)

·
·
·
47
  ·  10 days ago

Oh I've found time to complain about it at discord chat...while on cooldown ;)

·
·
·
·
52
  ·  10 days ago

I actually went there moaning about it the first time. Haha.

Great way to spend cool down moments hah! 😆

·
·
·
·
·
47
  ·  10 days ago

Yeah...it's a pretty good place...not sure about the upvote bot yet...never used it myself...yet
can get answers there usually and they're pretty helpful with the new guppies.

·
53
  ·  12 days ago

Of course, I would be relieved. Those 500 comments are killing me 'hardly'. 😜 And if I have to be killed I want to be...

·
·
47
  ·  10 days ago

Great song @ana-maria ~smiles~ put my beats on...detoxing now!

·
·
·
53
  ·  10 days ago

Thanks, @cryptologyx! I'm glad you like it. 🙂
I just have to tell you that very likely it might be must last comment as I'm running out of my available bandwidth. 😨
Current Bandwidth

Oh dear...I'm so sorry. :(

·
·
·
·
·
53
  ·  10 days ago

Well, that was as it was.
And I was right I couldn't post further unless I would wait another half hour or so at least.
I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer so I went to sleep. 😔

·
47
  ·  12 days ago

Cool @merej99! That's so kind of you!

I'll be definitely relieved and I might even pee in my cockpit.

·
·
47
  ·  10 days ago

lol...you didn't really mean yer cod piece ...did you @steemfluencer?

·
54
  ·  12 days ago

Actually I'm not sure. I think I'll miss it - but I am hoping to keep up (maybe not 50 comments/day) but at least double or triple the amount of comments per day I was doing before the challenge. The engagement is so valuable, I'm learning a ton, and I am meeting some really cool and inspiring people.

·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

This has helped me keep a rigid schedule which appeals to me - and I'm that much closer to reaching my comment and post goals but dang it, my rep score is not moving at all. What's it gonna take Steemit???

Most likely a tap dance.

LOL! It does take a lot when you ar in the 60's...I haven't moved in so long either...at least im' 61 so i cannot complain...do you think it's easier for newer people to move us than us veterans?

·
·
·
·
54
  ·  12 days ago

Yeah - especially at the beginning my number was going up and up...it has slowed down exponentially. Gotta learn some dance moves i guess...

·
·
·
·
·
61
  ·  12 days ago

I can dance! Especially if it will help my reputation! LOL

·
·
·
·

Hahaha that might be the best dance scene from a movie ever.

·
·
·

Goodness, That is in my top 5 movies.

·

OMG. hahaha!!!
I'd dance to boost my reputation too but I have too many moving parts. I might break something.

Why thank you @cryptologyx! I am sure that will help with my reputation! Lol

·

It's a lot easier to move from 25 to 59 but as soon as you hit the 60s, it's like moving mountains to get to 70.

·
·
·
·
·
61
  ·  12 days ago

Wow that's a lot of mountains I gotta move ...you are a lot closer to 70...but it's so well deserved!

·
·
·
·
·

59? I may just make that by 2020 and that'll be my age. TMI?

·
·
·
·

I think 60 will be the new 50...think retrograde...too tired to figure out if I have that right. :D

·
·

I liked the fact I met new people too, and interacting with them is something we take way from this challenge @jaymorebeet :)

·
·
·

  ·  12 days ago

I say we do this challenge once a quarter or half year. What do you think??

·
·
·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

That's about where I was thinking... maybe once a quarter. Next time I'll be organized from the beginning and I can hunt down donations for an even bigger prize pot. As it is, I didn't think this many people were going to sign up in the first place...or last! (no offense meant) But dang, I wasn't kidding when I said you guys were Jedis. lol

·

Well, this was the inaugural event @merej99, so it was a learning experience... perhaps for all of us. I;d say you did a superb job of juggling all this. IF you do this again, you'll already have all the processes, the spreadsheet and everything in place. Which should make things a little bit easier. Of course, you could also ask for volunteer "co-hosts!"

·
·
·
·
·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

I think I will definitely make this a quarterly thing because you're right, I have the spreadsheet and the process. Next time I'll be bothering some whales and bigger dolphins for more donations and definitely snagging some volunteers. If round one is any indication, I'm going to need help. LOL

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
47
  ·  11 days ago

Quarterly sounds very doable Meredith...with a lot of help. Expect a rise of a factor of 10 on the next challenge...and again for the next. Could be 10,000 Steemians wanting to take this on by this time next year.

Prize pool of 50K SBDs...think about it. Youl have a rep of 99 by 2030...to match your name and you'll be known in the Steemitsphere as the Great One! :D

Of course the prize pool will have to be at least 1 million SBDs by then...round robin tourneys...knock out rapid rounds to winnow minnows and whales alike. The top 100 only go to the final round...am I dreaming in type again here...where is my head? :-0

·
·
·
·

If you didn't learn something from this, whether participating or watching...then you haven't heard about it!

Maybe next time we can vlog the host and co-hostesses.

·

What I can definitely say is that you have the right attitude of finishing on time! :)

·
·
·
·
·
54
  ·  12 days ago

Yeah! It's a great mission so of course many came out for the challenge. Here's to keeping it going!

·
·
·
·
·
61
  ·  12 days ago

@merej99 For me it was more of finishing the challenge, than the actual prize of it....just telling myself I can finish the challenge and be more interactive in the community! :)

·
·
·
·
·
·
52
  ·  12 days ago

Finishing was also my goal. And I actually don't want to be in the running for the grand prize.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
61
  ·  12 days ago

You mean the delegation of steem power?

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I actually would like to win that SP prize...a new learning curve that I may not see for years :)

·
·
·
·
·
·
48
  ·  12 days ago

I agree. The finish is the thing! I'm so far away from the 500 comments but dang it! I want it and I'm stubborn. Just have to want it more than sleep.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
61
  ·  12 days ago

I have honestly been going to bed past midnight, some nights even 1am to finish the daily 50...that was my goal...reachable goal of 50 comments a day for 10 days...i have surpassed my 50 goal today...but must say @merej99 has helped us out in many ways especially with her 20 questions...plus it has been so much fun to interact with others and their answers :)

·
·
·
·
·
·

And don't worry you will get there! One post at a time!! :)

I don't think I've been to bed before 5 am in a long time but I don't have to get up to an alarm clock either. Holy crap! I'm only 6 away from 10K comments. you know what this means? I've done almost 1200 comments. hahaha.... WOW. That's nuts.

·
·
·
·
·
·

I definitely lost more than a few hours of sleep due to the comment portion of this challenge hahaha

As it turns out @thesimplelife you were as stubborn as you needed to be...I'm truly impressed...it's been one inspiration after another meeting you.

~smiles fer miles~

You didn't divide the comments? That would have made it easier for you. Keep going! 👍

·
·
·
·
·

I never thought I'd actually make 500 comments, but I only need like 10 more!

·
·
·

I like that idea too @jaymorebeet!

·

Ummm I see you guys as the gone team...no offense intended :)

·

Definitely a big positive from this challenge!

·

a huge positive!

·
·

I'm definitely going to miss it too

·

·

It's like we've all been in camp together. And @merej99 is our camp counselor.

·
·

This actually super accurate

·
·
·

Why do I want t-shirts made up. I'm thinking of Hey Dude (not sure if you know that show). Also someone needs a clipboard (@merej99) and a whistle.

·
·
·
·
·
·
46
  ·  12 days ago

I'd buy a t-shirt

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
47
  ·  11 days ago

I'd wear one too...buying? I don't do online shopping:)

·
·
·
·
·
·

I could totally go for t-shirts! That would be super cool!

·
·
·

I wouldn't know...been sleeping on top for a month now...since joining...even the cat won't go up there now.

interesting tak on it all @jaymorebeet...I like it...kinda does remind me of boot camp

Feel and think the same, @jaymorebeet. 🙂

·
·

I couldn't agree more...just haven't had time to review all the good things...but I will...if I have to. ~smiles~

·
59
  ·  12 days ago

definitely.....as in I would just step right back into my comfort zone. ... It has not been easy @merej99

·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

It's definitely not easy for you, especially being an active student. @dean-mno
I, on the other hand, have no life. LOL

·
·
·
59
  ·  11 days ago

You just hit the nail on its head perfectly..

Helping people by organizing this contest is way more than a job... you are a super woman @merej99

·
·
·
·
69
  ·  11 days ago

Thanks @dean-mno - just organized and nothing else critical going on. If I was a student or a young mother, or had to work outside the house, this definitely would have been a major challenge for me. You've got some comments to get caught up on. I will help where I can. :)

·
·
47
  ·  10 days ago

I would like a comfort zone right about now...a big ole' bosomy hug...with a six and a half foot tall amazon woman...I wanna feel small and cherished...just for a little while.

Recharged! ...just the thought of it { ;- ) >

Would you ever go sky-diving, cliff diving, or bungee jumping?

·
67
  ·  13 days ago

Sorry but no... I cannot see any good reason to jump out of a perfectly good airplane. Seriously....

·
·
48
  ·  12 days ago

I can't help agree with denmarkguy. I used to want, but the idea seems less and less enticing over time.

·
·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

I was almost convinced to try it but chickened out before we bought the jump package. :P

·
·
·
·
48
  ·  12 days ago

before buying it, is the best time to chicken out :)

·
·
·
·

My dad has done it...but my mom stayed on the ground! I bet he wouldn't do it again though!

·
·
·
·
·

How old was dad when he jumped? My sister is completely addicted. I think she was 2 tandem jumps away from going solo.

·
·

In his 40s I believe...

A smart woman here!

·
·
69
  ·  13 days ago

I feel exactly the same way! But... If there was a pretty hefty payout, I might be convinced. It'd have to have A LOT of zeroes after that 1. lol

·
61
  ·  12 days ago

I do not think I have the guts to follow through...allthough sky-diving sounds fun!

·
·
69
  ·  12 days ago

I rather have a lot of fun watching video of other people doing that stuff. I like my feet on the ground. LOL

·
·
·
61
  ·  12 days ago

I hear you! Your feet on the ground is way safer than flying...lol!

·
52
  ·  13 days ago

No only no, but HELL NO!

·
·
69
  ·  13 days ago

Me too! I've got a crazy sister who pays people to throw her out of a plane. Not me. Nuh-uh!

·
·
·

it's just foolish

·

What about an expedition to Mt. Everest? Would you do something that extreme?

·
