    Glad we could help. It's a shame that gofundme took such a large cut. Perhaps a couple of more donations could come in: https://www.gofundme.com/xmzy4m4/

    Got paid today, and tomorrow is Canada Day so everyone has the day off. Will be spending the day at the Jays game with friends, then going to Rib Fest for some delicious bbq.

    Work has been super cool, been there for 1 month now, and though it's been slow for me, I've gotten everything done quickly and for the most part, competently. Making friends with co-workers, and everyone has been very nice / friendly / helpful. Adjusting to my first time job is going very well! Also quite like the people I work for, the company is great, and the owners / employees are very awesome and passionate. It makes the work environment so much better when everyone is positive and enjoying themselves.

    Viewed a house yesterday and our moving date is the 9th so we've got our cheap car, a job and finally a place of our own.

    No more annoying family members

    I've honestly never heard of Canada Day before. Interesting.

    Left my home when 16 cause huge financial problems (poverty i might say), wasn't allowed to finish high school . Worked min wage for almost 10 years, had to sell most stuff i gathered to get through last year in college while still working full time some 12h shifts. (That's why i never got a chance to finish my first build log, sorry i'll get to it :D ).

    I just got my mechatronics engineering degree, passed my finals! Got a new job at processor manufacturing plant (it's a big one), signed my contract last week! Had pretty much no day off for past 6 years... taking 2 months off before i start new job in September.

    If you're going through hell, keep going.

    Excellent news, always awesome to hear someone doing well in engineering

    This is awesome, well done.

    Now you just get to feel that comforting feeling that no matter how life may treat you, what job you end up doing or how little you have, you'll always be an engineer :rock:

    We are forecast about a 50% chance of rain just as I am leaving the office and I don't care at all, I'll be jumping in the shower as soon as I get in anyway.

    Someone is trying to troll me. They even made me a little picture and uploaded it to their Bit-Tech photo album. :D

    It is my birthday. The day I just so happened to be brought into this world.

    Got some money, some presents, it's all good.

    For the sake of my own health and sanity (extremely stressed) my parents think getting my girlfriend involved back within the fold of my family is important. Its been 7 months since they've had any proper contact.

    If anything its made me feel slightly more stressed because i have to hint at the fact they would like some sort of communication on her part before things can be considered civil so that's not fun. I guess i just have to suck it up and be transparent if i want any chance of getting back to how it once was between everyone. It's basically pointing out the fact feelings and personality traits of hers caused the problem in the first place when she doesn't really see it that way...

    Its like now everything's on this clock to get it fixed ASAP in case the delay and lack of any response just makes it even worse.

    It may sound like something to go in the ruining thread but I'm sure somehow the positives will out weigh the negatives soon.

    I'm eating my wife's home-made black cherry cheesecake. Right now. As I type this.

    That is all.
