More than one VLDC a year would be an overkill. It used to be an annual thing, though. Used to be. Now that VLDC isn't annual anymore, who knows if the next one will happen in 2020 or 2021?That guy who wasted time on making his BLDC level and posted an unfinished and impossible product. Eventually, the host removed the submission and the author of the level deleted the redundant file. Remember, kids, never slack off making your own level, particularly right before the deadline.
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.
My last week has been going fine. I've been trying to apply at several jobs, but none of them called me so far, including one at my university, and especially now that my vacations just started. I'm also happy that I'm nearing my graduation and I took tons of pictures at the rehearsal, and the fact that one friend I helped thanked me after she passed on a test to join a military school makes me more optimistic! I also had several financial issues going on, but thankfully they were all sorted out (for now).
