Soup Miner Soup MinerMe, mad? Haha, quite likely.
It's funny how much can happen in a year. Or two. So what's everyone up to these days?

Finished with Uni, have moved on to... I'll, uh, have to get back to you about that. What about yourself?

P.S. We've missed you.

Soup! How are you doing these days? What have you been up to?

I quit my job as an IT jack of all trades (C# app programming, web front- & backend development, database design and maintenance, PC support and maintenance, technical advice and so on and so on). I had way too many responsibilities and was constantly stressed out and was always thinking about work. I learned a lot, though, and had great coworkers and bosses.

So I decided to go back to school. I dropped out during 12th grade, so the school I'm at now is mainly for adults want to be able to apply for higher education. I never thought I'd say this but I actually enjoy school and I've made some great friends. I used to be quite lonely before. I'm currently trying to figure out what to study after this. I don't think I want to work with computers anymore.

I'm better than ever before.

3rd year in university, working on a remake of HL1's Hazard Course.
Not much time to do much of anything else. :P

Still wrestling with the life of an Architecture student that takes 99% of my time, not a lot has changed.

A few months ago I happened to meet an old friend from school I hadn't seen in at least fifteen years, he invited me for supper at his place and his mum served me the worst, most nausea-inducing food I ever ate in my life by far. I'm not eating her food again.

No news besides that. Now tell us about yourself.

I had a long, personalized reply laid out for each of you, but I got stressed because I couldn't think of something witty enough for each of you. So I'll just leave it at this: It's good to see all of you--it really is. It's good I'm happy to see that you guys are doing well.

As for myself, I'm observing, just as I always have been. Making money and observing.
I decided not to go to Japan. My goals are simpler now. It's a long story; I don't want to elaborate. I won't say I'm happier at this point, but I'm more enlightened and more aware of what I want. I've learned a few lessons over the past two years that are undoubtedly more significant than anything I've ever learned before, and I am extremely grateful that I was able to spend much of my adolescence associating with a crowd as knowledgeable and open-minded as TWHL.
