    So since I moved back to Vancouver, we've found an awesome place to live my fiance and I, and we're totally conformatble. Problem is that she's keeping busy working two jobs, meanwhile I'm getting some extra certifications and looking for work.

    BUT I DON"T WANNNNNNNNNAAAAAAAAAAAA I'm having way too much fun watching tv, playing games, and writing music.. and I mean, that takes up a lot of my time :wanker:

    and with the weather getting better every week now, who wants to be indoors?!

    anyone in the same boat?

    Everytime I take more than a week off for vacation I never want to go back to work.

    But the need to make money and pay bills and save for retirement -- make it so any amount of time where I am not working (as in I don't have a job) makes me very uncomfortable.

    If I had millions and millions of dollars, I wouldn't work for a paycheck. But I would have many (more) hobbies to keep me very busy. And would most definitely offer my time (and skills heh) to charity and those in need (beyond what I offer now that is)...

    Well I'm mostly into computers and audio.
    I try to find work doing scoring for short films and commercials, but that is mostly on the side as I need to build a portfolio.
    So mainly I'm looking IT and Networking. I'm going for Network+ in the following weeks.

    Talked with some people from Kodak today also.. had an over the phone interview, and going for an interview tomorrow so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    Oh yeah definitely feeling this one. I only had one week off last week to go to Queenstown for one of my grandparents funerals. Not the best occasion but still so nice to be off work and in one of the most spectacular spots in the world. Got back to work on Monday and really struggled to get into it. Thankfully I have lots of annual leave owing so I sit here typing this now on my laptop, in bed, at 9am on a Friday morning. Ahhh sweeet!

    ^ but see that's just it.. when you ARE working, you can relish moments like that way more than when you are not.

    Not that I don't love getting up when I want, making a fresh mug of coffee and listening to some tunes, playing with the cat, and just fumbling around the PC.. I mean, all good don't get me wrong, Its just that after a while you know its gotta end, and I don't want it to lol

    ^ hehehe well said.

    As for my fiance, well she's awesome. Initially she was intending to go to university, but now she's decided against that. But we were able to save up lots of dough in calgary since all we had to pay for were our cells, gas for the car, and groceries! So its not diar straights that i get work immediately.. but of course, the longer you wait, the longer it is to get your ass out of bed and get to work!

    Too bad owning in CoD4 doesn't pay the rent. Shucks :D
