Congratulations Reichu!

...Well my wife graduates this May, and something we've talked about was for me to go back to school when she's done. So I went ahead and signed myself up for college..and while I'm scared and nervous I'm excited to go back and hopefuly get myself a higher paying job in the future..The main advisor i talked to was real helpful and friendly and let me know which classes to start out with. So I'm hopeful I'll be able to handle the classwork along with being a new parent and a full time employee.:)

Oh wow! So many good news! KL-7, congrats, don't forget to ease your children in with some Little Witch Academia... then work your way up from there :D
And Reichu, seems like a very low-key affair, but the fact that you wanted to share it here tells me, that you're proud of that decision! As you should! Congratulations :)

This is the final picture I took with the old smartphone before upgrading to this thing right there; people call that J7 a "midrange" phone but where I live, that phone is like driving a BMW.

I got to take a ride in a Leopard 1 A5 main battle tank last weekend. The engine sound alone was more than enough to make it worth the two hours of driving, but the feeling of standing in the loader's hatch with the wind in your face while 40 tons of steel are moving underneath you is simply amazing

Well a lot has happened since the last time I was here so a simple rundown....

1. Got promoted at work and have been in charge of my own location for the past ~4 months. Make over double what I did before.

2. Went on a 2 week trip to the UK (Specifically: Northern Ireland) at the start of May to meet in person and hang out with a couple users I met on here and have in the years since become great friends with. (They no longer log in here however) First time traveling outside of the US and had an absolute blast. So much so that I plan on going again next year.

So, finally some good news to report.

Car accident is all set, and I've got a new car. Didn't quite want a new car but I needed one, and picked the best one I could. It's a nice car, the same model as my old one, just 10 years newer. And on the job front something finally came through. It's another temp job, but at least its a job and I'm gad to have it. So things are starting to look up.

Glad you got your car problems sorted and hopefully the new job's not like the old job.

Oh, it's much better so far. Everyone's much nicer, and the office is actually quiet and people are actually, get this... working! I've never been in an office where people actually took the time out of their busy day to do their job.

So, usually before work me and my mom go visit this thrift shop/animal shelter. Anyhow, when they get in any Garfield merchandise they save it for me and give it to me for free. ^_^ I've gotten a free plushie, a knockoff pewter figure, a mug, and a cat food dish from them.

So one of my great grandchildren had a fifth birthday party; it turned out to be the biggest family occasion for quite some years. Family members present were two great grandchildren, four grandchildren (and one boyfriend), two children (and spouses), ex-wife (and spouse), my wife and me.

But enough of that; we have a new puppy, which is far more interesting. We've had him for two weeks now, and today he went out to the country for the first time, and had his first walk on a lead: meet Dizzy

Since around March last year, I've been writing freelance game reviews for the gaming website Hardcore Gaming 101 (under the accidental pseudonym of Apollo Chungus). The idea behind the website is to provide a comprehensive look at as many games as possible, going into why they're interesting or worth checking out, the differences between ports if there's anything major, and any weird or cool facts about them.

Sometimes, there are specific games that the website wants covered, and among them were the Sonic the Hedgehog games released for the SEGA Master System and Game Gear during the 90's. Being a big fan of Sonic and having a good bit of admiration for the 8-bit games, I decided to take up the task of doing just about every game for those systems (apart from handheld ports of Sonic Spinball and Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, which would be covered by whoever was reviewing the console versions). That means I had to review 10 games, which I've been working on for the past 2-3 months. This includes playing them at least a couple of times each, taking notes, capturing accurate screenshots, and making sure that I was writing the best possible reviews according to what my editor feels is best.

And I'm happy to say that I'm 95% done with them! I have all 10 reviews written (though I've going to send them off to the editor for feedback first), and organised the screenshots for nearly every game. I'm so happy to nearly have all this done, and can't wait to send them off and see them up on the website!

I had my last day at my one-year job yesterday, and now have about half a year of free time to do what I want to do.

Been thinking about streaming the Funimation channel on the internet especially because I can't keep shelling out too much money for the physical copies of their anime which are taking up too much space in my closets. I think my Roku box has the ability to show it on my HDTV and the price is right, why not.

Celebrated what might be the last warm day before autumn really sets in by going out on my bike to find a country pub for lunch Image
with the weather still being warm enough to want to sit outside and enjoy the view
Image.
Lunch was the King Burger (with king prawns and sweet chili), and a couple of pints of locally brewed dry-hop lager.

And now, after dealing with shocking road surfaces on the homeward route that cut my speed to a crawl, I simply have to tell myself that pain is just weakness leaving the body.

I read that as "Burger King" so many times before I realized it was "King Burger" lol:

Sounds like a nice pleasant day though, except for the road.

I'm finally doing my Master's degree in archaeology after waiting for so long! I tried to enter last year but it opened almost nowhere in the country leaving me mostly staring at walls for the past year. But that's over now. After this is done, I'm done with studying for a long time. Just two more years.
