  This is the point of the month where posting slacker Mat_j mysteriously becomes proactive and tries to make people post more. It has nothing to do with him being bored in work!


POST!

  you can lead a plonker to the keyboard, but you can't make him post.

I've tried.

I admire and respect your attitude though, Don Quixote. : )

C'mon dammit, I'm too old to find another forum to live at.

And I'm too senile.

The accommodations are quite cozy here. I love the chocolate on my pillow at night.

  Hello!

I slept in sooooo late today. I am all done with my first year of grad school, except for some frustrating loose ends to finish up before I leave on TUESDAY to go HOME! Then maybe I'll be better at posting!

  Hi Mat.

Hi GT.

I'm just hanging at home today, reading and watching my flowers grow, waiting for my birthday dinner. It's very beautiful here today and I hope wherever you all are, you're having a good day too.

I miss our discussions. Thank you Mat for starting this thread.

-Kira

p.s. congrats Aeon. Please have your son post as soon as he learns to type. Knowing kids these days it'll probably only be a year or so.

  Every time I think that grad school has hit a new low in terms of the time it requires and the lack of meaningful life that results, I get proven wrong and it ups the ante.

That said, in two months Myk and I will have celebrated our first anniversary and, with any luck, I should also have defended my thesis and be done!!!

I never thought I'd say that.

Oh, and libra... I'll be moving to Vancouver some time in July. We should see about grabbing a coffee or something when you are back in the fall.

It's good you have a thesis worth defending. If I wrote one I'd probably look at it and think "This thesis is guilty and needs to suffer a horrible death".
Congrats on that, and the one year anniversary. Before too long you'll be past the "honeymoon" stage. That's when the real excitement sets in. ; )

And I wish I was moving to Vancouver. A beautiful place to live in a sane country to boot.
Nice to get an update from you Jenn.

Glad you didn't get smooshed. Getting smooched is fine, but being smooshed is never a good thing.

I believe that's crazy ant's way of saying "Hi"...not the "boo" as in a bad kind of way.
He spends a lot of time drinking out at sea so you have to forgive him. ; )

I'm still studying communication, cramming in as many papers as I can (5 this semester, 6 next semester and 2 over the summer) so that I can be finished my degree by the end of the year, I love being a student but I hate being poor/idle so getting it over with.

Looking at an exchange programme to Japan for next year where you become an assistant to an english teacher, I think that's something I would enjoy.

Other than that... Been travelling round the country a little bit catching up with friends, pretty much ignoring the male species in an effort to make myself focus on an independant future aaaaaaaand generally struggling to make ends meet as per usual.

Am irrationally desperately afraid over this swine flu thing and have a horrible feeling it's going to cull most of the population in some sort of apocalyptic black death plague scenario. Also have a cold which only adds to the uneasiness. If anyone has any reassuring statistics I would like to hear them now.

  I'm working long hours and in a few weeks I head to France and India for a little while for work. I am really loving it.

Mostly I am just loving Kansas City. I love reconnecting with my old friends, and I made this awesome group of new friends. It's good times.

I'm glad to hear that everyone is going well.

  finally got myself some bookcases for my new place!

got a promotion at work..another position i know i won't like..but it's tough times looking for a new job right now, so i'll take what i can get.

last night i went to an open-bar wedding. there were a lot of people from my old high school there - sort of felt like prom all over again. strange how some people never change.

i will be in vancouver next february!

i'm going to go make some pancakes. today's a special day.

Smart move. Males are overrated and carriers of nasty germs. Any service they can provide can be done better by yourself anyway.

Apparently you didn't hear the news. He went bonkers last week at a Liverpool soccer match and ran out on the field during play stark naked screaming, "COVER YOURSELF WITH HOT MELTED BUTTER...AND LEMON JUICE! THERE'S A LOBSTER LOOSE!!"

for real.

and that was on a good day... you should see me when i can't get any melted butter...

lolz

anyways, hows life all?

been quiet on the work front, everything slowed down a whole bunch from the last 2 years and there is the nagging possibility that i could be redundant shortly (my primary function was to do training for all new employees, and since we're not hiring, there's no one for me to train) so have casted out the nets to see if can snag anything

family's pretty ok, could be better but still alive

now.......

where'd that lobster go.......

No good mostly.

Trying to make a go of it freelancing (cartooning). When the jobs come it's good and fun and I don't even feel like I'm doing work (if that makes any sense). Problem is I'm so specialized in my type of illustrating that it's feast or famine getting work..and lately it's mostly famine.
So starting another job now working from home doing kind of what I was doing before...correlating state standards in social studies for a company. Get to work from home, but it's really depressing to not be able to do what I really enjoy doing in life.

But when I think about how bad some have it now I feel guilty complaining about shit like this.
So I'll shut up and smile now.

  still working in my horrible retail job, but developing a set of interests such as drinking, camping, and drinking while camping. also about to do a course in ceramics.

thinking of moving away from the home city. to a much colder, much more boring city. Although, new city IS in the only state in Aust where its legal to buy fireworks ans xxx porn, so maybe not so boring.

also planning to go a long adventure where i only tell my work and my mum that i'm going away, then get in my car in the middle of the night with no plan. should be rad times.

These are wholesome activities. Next time you go camping and drinking give the wild critters some alcohol too. You'll have a lively time singing and telling stories around the campfire with them.

You should definitely come on out to Yosemite. There is all that and more!!!!


:P

  I did go to Yosemite once, when i was 7. It was awesome. I liked it better than disneyland. we spent a week or so up in the sierra nevadas too, during the world hang gliding championships (my dad was an official). I was used to spending a lot of time outside, so it was so cool to have new landscapes to explore, after seeing australian bush for years and years.

i'm glad you're freelancing now addi. i still treasure your simple wisdom :D

hey not to sound all weird and junk but what part or KC? MO or KS? I'm over near Overland Park, KS

Anybody else in or around KC, KS/MO?

It's been a giant change over the last year moving out here to KS with Puck.

Things are going slowly but surely. working full time and hoping to get around to doing that edumacation thing this fall. wanted to go to summer classes but my old manager scheduled me on the first day of class sign up - i went to the college a week later and yeah the classes were all filed *shakes fist at douche management*

i'm pretty much teaching myself to sew and i've sewn some clothes and hope to open up a little shop on Etsy maybe this fall selling my wares.

i am thinking of getting a degree in dental hygiene it's a fairly laidback work environment and great pay. shouldn't be too difficult. i am just embarrassed it's taken me mm 4 almost 5 years to get back to college and start up again. i have about 20 credit hours (the advisor said that they would apply towards my degree w00t) under my belt from my first go round when i was 16-17.

on another completely unrelated note
i seriously want a dog. seriously.

either a sheltie, australian shepherd, corgi, beagle or greyhound.

i want one so bad it almost hurts :P

i've got so many great dog names picked out too. all of them of course dorky and odd :D

can't afford one until i get a job as a dental hygienist. bleh.

that is about it for me really.

And Puck since I know he doesn't even lurk here I'll give you a mini update

he loves being back home amongst friends and family. (some of his friends even like me :P )

he is an assistant manager of a bakery and doing well.

he has been biking every as much as possible and we ended up getting him a really nice trek bike for christmas last year.

and he wants to truck drive later this year depending on how the economy is.


:) that's about it. he is a pretty bookworm-y quiet sort of guy always carrying a book to and fro ^_^


we are doing well out here in ks. i'm hoping when i get myself finished with school i can convince him to let us move to CA (most likely won't happen but it's worth a try :P ).
