Looks like I wasn't the only one who decided to log in after a long hiatus (wb Torchikas). I kinda got bored and realised the last time I logged in was a year ago. I may or may not have been stalking the site logged out (I know Eevee sometimes checks my IP ranges while we're talking on Discord but I don't think she's done it in a while since she normally tells me). Who knows~. I did speak to Kieran recently as well so I'm aware of the new glorious overlords management too.
Anyway I was kinda visiting the site for research purposes and got kinda nostalgic. Not expecting to stick around for very long, but I do like swinging by and seeing the names I recognise here.
So where have I been? Well I got a better job. One that pays well. Currently up for a huge promotion. Got my own place and I got a long distance partner I'm mere months from closing the gap with. I also had a 6 month old PM from some new user asking me something about cups. No idea how they found my profile.
Also I think this is the first time I ever posted in the B&G in over a decade of being registered so umm... Hi.
If you recognise me though, and if you missed me (weird flex but ok) I do hover in the SMWC Discord. Shoot me a DM there sometime.
Can someone lay down the "Juicy Goss" I've missed from the last year?
I've signed up as a monitor for this semester (and the next) in uni, and this Wednesday an astounding total of 8 people attended. They picked some questions to answer and I was able to provide some assistance for them all. My other day monitoring is today, and I'm very much looking forward to it as I've been told even more people are going to come (we might even need a bigger room!). With this I've been feeling more and more this confirmation that what I truly want is be a professor. It's not that simple of a path to get there, but having that defined I'll hopefully find the motivation for it! This is I think the first time I've felt so certain about what I want for myself in the future. That makes me happy.
