    Adult Life

    Many of us were young, naive, stupid, irresponsible teens when we joined JNet way back in the day. How are you going now as an adult? Are you doing what you wanted to be doing? Or not? Happy with where life has led you? Or have you led your life to where you are? For me, my wife and I will celebrate our 8 year wedding anniversary in a few weeks, our 3.5yr old daughter is a firecracker with a great vocab and a brilliant mix of princess and tomboy. Our 3month old is developing some personality and the smiles are cute, but we're DONE on that front. Career wise, I was doing the part time McDonalds gig in high school, i worked for a few other companies in my hometown before moving to the city when i was about 21. I worked in FMCG for several years with Coke, then left and did a degree at uni to become a primary school teacher. Taught for a few years and then was head hunted into an Edtech company where I now provide training to teachers who use our product, an educational video platform. I was heavily into refereeing football (soccer) until kids turned up and it became too hard to manage time and travel for work, and now I run, having completed a half marathon back in November and I'm registered for my first full marathon which is on 5th April. I'm loving doing that as I can just walk out the door and go, no equipment needed beyond a watch to record the session.
  2. Holy crap that's a random post.
  3. Yup. It was an interesting finale but I think it sets things up nicely for the next season.
  4. How good is the Mandalorian, huh? It's brilliant, that's how good it is. I really enjoyed the first season and am looking forward to the next one. It was actually kind of nice to have to wait for a new episode each week (we got D+ about 4 weeks in) rather than binging it. It built up the anticipation a bit. I think they played Baby Yoda very well butneed to be careful not to overcook that asset in the next season.
  5. There have been two this year that have made me sad. Kenny Baker and Carrie Fisher. Life is all about relationships and they were both a significant part of my childhood.
  6. And there's the Canadian's, showing that the stereotypical polite Canadian is true. http://kdvr.com/2016/11/29/video-of-canadians-on-black-friday-confirms-every-stereotype/
  7. I think I spam-added a whole bunch of people. Seems like it worked.
  8. It's great for the grandparents as well. They love it.
  9. Now we're hearing about alt-right rather than white supremacy or neo-fascism as an actual thing. I think I remember seeing salutes to someone's speech there was the same salutes given to the guy as to Hitler. It's crazy times.
  10. Yeah. We might all be adults with varying stages of jobs/family etc but we're all still teenagers. Well, except those who weren't teenagers back then anyway.
  11. It's going well. I'm in my final year. This semester has been rather uneventful. One class is my "practicum"--which was an internship I did two summers ago. We only meet four times this semester. The other course is an online course that didn't start until October. I'm also working on my thesis in the meantime I thought having a light load this semester would be great for my thesis work, but I've found that without the consistent schedule, I've kinda gotten academically lazy.. I remember that. FInished my internship and then....nothing. Then I had a meeting with my Honours supervisor, just a regular scheduled catchup and he's all "we can get you an extension if we need to" and I thought eff that, went home and pumped out the full first draft that afternoon. I kinda surprised myself with that. It was a lot of writing.
  12. I got it for Christmas...can't get into it. I've played about 15 hrs worth and its just not grabbing me.
  13. It will be interesting to see how they wrap up the Wolverine series and hand it over. Also, it will be interesting to see how long they wait to reboot Wolverine considering he is a big moneymaker. I feel like it will be a while though, given that Hugh Jackman was a very good fit and that the scripts were generally pretty good.
  14. I'd love to see what The Newsroom would have done for this whole spectacle and how they treated it.
