      Heyo!

      So, as I mentioned in my previous journal, I've moved to Ottawa to finish my final co-op work term (think paid internship if you aren't familiar with university co-op programs). Anyway, part of this 4 month chapter of my life is a 45-50 minute commute via public transit twice a day. Typically, my commutes to work or school have been at tops 15 minutes - and that was while driving a car. This whole "hanging out on a bus" thing is new to me. As tempting as it was to people watch, sleep, or blankly stare out of the window with my earbuds in, I've decided I'll spend my time better by reading!

      I used to read a lot when I was younger, but since entering university my philosophy has been that I shouldn't be reading for fun if I'm not actually doing my assigned readings for school (the majority of the assigned readings aren't worth the time anyway, but that's not the point). So, for better or for worse I haven't really read much for the last 4 years. My first summer back from university is an exception because I hadn't started co-op just yet, but you get the point.

      Anyway, I'm writing this journal because I finished my first book today, The Martian. Between the film coming out shortly, the talk about it on the Podcast, and it's setting (SPACE!!!!) I had to pick it up. Simply put, I loved it! I'm really excited to get to experience it again on screen and I figure it will be a good way to cope with the fact that I'm done reading about Mark Watney. From the trailers, it looks like there have been some changes, but that's to be expected and it's still a movie about space - so I'm in!

      Next on my list, The Silmarillion.

      For no reason at all - except for my recent craving to reread the Harry Potter series - I've become addicted to Pottermore. I joined this morning and got sorted into Gryffindor. I always thought I was a Ravenclaw, but evidently not and thus my life fell apart around me and I had to rebuild. After recovering from my identity crisis I started playing around with potion brewing and going through the story that is setup for you on the site. It seems like I joined at the right time since the final House Cup contest ends on Sept 9th. Seeing as my start date at my job got pushed back a week and a half, I guess Pottermore is going to be a big part of my life (by the way I moved to Ottawa a few days ago).

      All joking aside, Pottermore is a pretty cool experience. It's very much like an interactive version of a wiki page. The story mode is point and click based gameplay to discover hidden objects, books, and articles written by J.K. Rowling. It's pretty basic, but it's also a fun way to look back at the series.

      My username is FelicisWombat17847 if you want to add me as a friend. I don't even know what friends have to offer on Pottermore, but hey, let's do it!

      Life Side Note: I've been without a working phone for 3 weeks, but I should hopefully be getting a new replacement iPhone 6 tomorrow!

    • I'm a Tough Mudder!

      So, I did my first Tough Mudder this weekend at Mount St. Louis.. I'm the handsome lad on the left!11907190_10153030078402314_2854729322934I had a blast and I will definitely be doing it again next year! By the end of the day I think the other teams were either happy to be rid of us or happy to have ran with us (We got a lot of comments about our singing abilities and team name).

      All in all, it was a good day and a great weekend.

      My poor white shirt.

      By the way, my team was The Terrifically Terrifying Taint Ticklers...hence the moustaches.

      If someone ever asks, "Hey dood, do you want some lower back pain?"
      Turn down that offer and maybe even call the police. This injury sucks. I've learned a fun fact about the central nervous system though! It's that lower back pain can cause indigestion and near constant intestinal discomfort. Fun stuff..

      It's being treated, but man this is an inconvenience. How are you all holding up?

        Sounds way better than my night of cramming to finish two assignments due tomorrow and consuming copious amounts of caffeine. Consider the friend request accepted haha

        Not much. Watching some football on TV, debating my if I can go to RTX next August, college stuff, rereading up to current SnK and a few other series. Decided that you have commented on some of my posts that I might want to add you as a friend
