And i'm finally back to blogposts on gs!What have i been upto u might be wondering...well for starters...after my last blog post nearly two years ago...i'll go in order: :wink:
1:My 20th birthday:8) Was pretty mild.Spent the time studying for midterms and then went for dinner to red lobster at night!I got resistance retribution a couple of days after that for my psp.
2:Summer semester at college: Was friggin sweet!!Studied and worked throughout!Saw alotta movies for free since i was working there and cough cough *snuck* alotta people in! :P
3: Dad leaves for indonesia and my sisters go along with him at the start of august.It's just my mom and me alone at the house. We were going to leave as well right after my exams but not before we packed up our entire house and stuffed everything in a tiny warehouse.
4:We leave for Indonesia and two days later my older sister comes back to canada as her co-op term begins :(.I had taken the fall term off from college. At first it's alotta fun and exciting there, but then the lack of activities over there this time around was a real joykill, since i was no longer in highschool and all my friends who lived there had gone abroad as their universities were starting.For two months i annoyed the hell outta my parents begging them to let me come back to canada.:evil:
5:We leave for Pakistan mid October for my cousin's wedding.That was fun for that one week :D but then my mother had surgery :( so i stayed back with her there while my dad and sister came back to indonesia. We stay there till early December and then head back for indonesia as well.3 days later i come back to canada and am relieved to be back. :D
6: I spend the remainder of December and the first week of January at my sister's place while our apartment's renovated for our parents return.January comes along and we all move into the apartment.It's warm and cozy but not big enough for 4 people so we start looking for a house.
7:11th March: My birthday!!! I turn 21!!! I'm a big boy now!!!Right in the middle of midterms though,BUT i FINALLY get a PS3!!!I study my ass off for the exams, but then afterwards it's back to gaming!!I get MGS4 and GTA4 for my birthday and spend the entire next week playing those games.Oh also, i'm jobless!!Had to leave the theater job as they didn't wanna give me a 4 month break! :(

10:August-Spetember:Semester ends!I buy even more games!Am nearly broke :( !!BUT finally i get hired at Staples as a technology consultant!!WOOHOOOO!!I get to work with electronics and advice people what product to get as their needs.Yes A sales representative...nothing fancy, except for the technical name "TECHNOLOGY CONSULTANT"! Sounds good on a resume but when i'll have to describe it to my next employer, he'll know that it's just a fancy name for a computer sale's assoociate (salesman)!
11:September-Present:Working hard and studying harder!!Final semester at college!!!Then i graduate!!!WOOHOOOO!!Then it'll be time for me to get an actual job related to what i'm studying!!I'm looking forward to it!Then my job title will be even cooler!8) Looking forward to it!!Computer Analyst/Security Analyst/Database Analyst/Quality Control Analyst/System Administrator!! Also, after graduating, i'll get my CCNA and MCSE certifications done which will increase the likelyhood of getting employed by a good company!And on my college's careerlink, there are alotta jobs that are offering $48000+ for a starting salary!Hopefully i'll get one like that!:D
