    Nothing much, grooming doggos and sleeping a lot. Oh, I get to hang out with my mom tomorrow so that's cool I guess. I also managed to find a super cheap flight to Norway so I'm going in Oct for a couple weeks

    Well what the heck am I supposed to post now? Except for the Dr. Pepper thing. A can of that stuff is pretty exciting for me.

    Well I am on summer break from college now. Almost done the associate's level, moving on to my bachelors soon, at which point sharky and I may start planning a wedding, very excite. Still a bit of time to go though.

    I have a bad back injury or something, so that's been a struggle, but I'm doing my best to exercise it even though it leads to a lot of pain.

    Also I decided to start making my own little chibi figurines and I started practicing today by making Teepo from Tales of Xillia. It's certainly not great but it wasn't too bad for a first try and I learned some things so I can improve next time!

    Other than that, mostly vidya and relaxing, enjoying my summer break

    Other than that...
    my life is less exciting than than a can of Dr Pepper. I read, play games, and look at stuff on the internet. I don't have a lot of common interests so I don't make many friends to hang out with anymore. If it isn't WoW, Final Fantasy, or GoT I probably don't know much about it. Combine that with awful social skills and a general disinterest with the common person, and an exciting Friday night for me is ordering a pizza. I also never drink anymore, for those of you that remember my LJ days, because watching my dad turn into "functional" alcoholic over the last several years has been awful. I'm not afraid I will too, I don't drink because I literally have no desire for it anymore.

    On happier notes, uh... I found copies of some old songs I recorded back in 2005 for an EOFF album yesterday that I thought were lost forever
    Hey, your Dr Pepper life sounds pretty cush to me! I don't get a whole lot of time to myself to be able to enjoy the small stuff - so I'm a bit jealous of you! That's awesome news about your degree, you smart cookie!

    I don't drink much these days either. I think I have an alcohol intolerance because so many drinks I have will give me an instant migraine and knock me out into sleep - and not in a good way. Even a sniff of some drinks is enough.

    More people come later and are making memories of their own. They're just as precious to them as the early memories are to others. Somehow, those amazing moments keep happening.
    I've only been here since 2012 but I've had a really good run I think.

    I wouldn't sweat it. If I've learned anything is that we gain weight and lose it and it's all just a cycle of growing up and changing shapes and life. They're all connected. You can do it!

    Whaaaa you need to show me!

    As for me, um... not a lot, really. I live an exceptionally boring life. Which isn't a bad thing, I suppose. My job's going well, I guess.

    I feel very similar.

    Like, it's weird because on paper I have a very good life! I have all of the things I was yearning for 6-8 months ago. I have a beautiful home, a stable full time job where I can utilise my creativity and help it grow - a career! I am doing okay financially.

    But like, all of a sudden it's not enough and I want more. I think I just need to come to terms with this being who I am - I hit a milestone and then already want the next one and the next one.

    You guess?

    I don't know if I'm buying it - what's really going on?

    Still working in oil and gas. Doing Instramentation. What that is , is I go to gas plants and oil batteries and calibrate all the little automatic switches that shut the lines down. All the measurement tools. Fix pumps. Fix valves. That kind of thing. Not very exciting but it keeps me busy.

    Oh, I just noticed the 'I guess' sounded suspicious. I'm actually really enjoying my job, I love working in the library service and I want to stay in libraries forever.

    I kinda meant with that was my job's going well but that's literally the only thing that's happening with my life. I wish I was more interesting!

    I've mostly been trying to find a job and get into a more organized routine, and I want to start exercising too. Also have been trying to practice my drawing at least a little bit everyday. It's a bit of a struggle, but I'm working on it!

    Aside from being super busy?

    I got my Masters in Pure Mathematics

    I am now proficient in Python, R and I'm learning SQL and Machine Learning, as well as about to learn swift for iOS development. I'm really excited about this, because at the end of the program I got into I will be releasing a full game.

    I also have made a couple industry insiders at google and I may be soon working there.

    Hi! Been so busy and I just had another baby boy about a week and a half ago. But now that I can relax a little I have time to come back and see what's new, who's new, and how's everyone and everything doing. I'm glad to hear you are doing much better and you deserve it for being patient and pushing yourself further when you needed to. I do hope you continue in your path with that positivity of yours and I do wish the same for everyone else.
