      For all the disk slingers in the community we should have a little friendly scrimmage and maybe some drilling if anyone wants to work on something.


      2 years ago we had it in Zilker Park Somewhere in this area. Which worked pretty well, being a large flat area. There is also Palm Park which is right behind the convention center if that is more accessible.


      I would suggest sometime around 2ish on the thursday before as to not cut into any RTX event time.


      Bring a light and dark shirt so we can make teams. And Lots of water.

      I am looking at making the long drive to RTX from Guelph/GTA for the third year running. If you are interested please let me know. If you have a decent vehicle, ideally a mid size a hatchback or SUV that would be great. My car is a little small for such a lengthy journey.

      Hello again, its been a while. Life has been very strange as of late.


      For starters I got into university! I'll be going to Ryerson University in the fall in their Bachelor of Architectural Science. This comes as such a great relief, as after 4 years of applications, rejections, an acceptance, a deferral and subsequent relinquishing since finishing college I'm finally continuing my education.


      I moved. More specifically I moved in with my partner Laura. Last summer I had a job lined up for when I returned from RTX at an architectural office in Vaughn (an hour commute from where I had been staying, my Dad's house). The job wasn't necessarily bad, it just wasn't going to be doing anything that could grow my skill set. Then during the drive home, yes drive, I received an email from another company I had applied to awhile back who were located in Kitchener (about 45 minutes from where my partner was living, her parents house). So I took the interview, 2 days before I was supposed to start. They offered me a position Saturday night and on Sunday I grabbed what I would need to start work there and staying with my partner at her parents house. The Job was great. I was working exclusively with Revit, a 3D architectural modeling software, with a really great team. Unfortunately I was only brought on as a contract, and was only there for just over a month. After that contract I was contemplating plating applying for University so it was a bit of a quest what I wanted my next employment to be. Eventually I took a part time position with the YMCA in Guelph with the maintenance team. Not ideal but a jobs a job. While all this was going on, some of our friends were renovating their house which is split vertically into a duplex. It a great size and right in the heart of Guelph. At first they were looking to have the it done by the start of October, then November then finally January. The delay wasn't all that unexpected as they were doing the reno themselves and becoming increasingly pregnant. But the final date was met and we moved in on January 1st. In Canada. Yes, It was cold.


      I've also been doing some volunteering. A man Jim Estill, A Guelph local and very successful business-man, sponsored 50, 50, Syrian refugee families. With such a massive undertaking, he set up a network for other companies, community groups and charities to communicate and co-ordinate efforts. As a part of this Myself and Laura have been part of the team moving the impressive amount of donated housewares to the correct storage locations and then, when a family is set to arrive, moving a set of furnishings into the assigned living space.


      The RT Ontario group has been an absolute blast to be a part of! Playing with other Ontarian's in the Rooster Rumble, I believe we finished in a three way tie for first. While the first game of this season went, literally, laughably poorly for us, it was still fun to get together these guys for a night of games. And of course the meet ups have been quite the hit. Starting with a gathering of just 6 in a pub in downtown Toronto to the massively successful Lazer Team Premiere to an AHWU worthy lazer tag excursion, you guys are just awesome.


      I took a pottery class. And I liked it. Turns out its very fun. Its kind of a perfect mix of required creativity, physicality, and noticeable progress for me. I've made only a few pieces but getting better. I now go to the open studio on Sunday's to practice. Right now i'm working on a couple mugs with 16 bit inspiration. ;)


      So, that was life as I knew it,


      Until last Thursday...


      I finally decided to call a posting for an architectural illustrator with Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga that had been suggested to me. had the interview on Thursday morning and on Monday I received an offer to come and work full time at least through the summer. I started on Wednesday with a final walk through of a property and meeting staff and I recieved notification that I didn't get into Waterloo (boooo, but what ever), On Thursday I spent the day with the Project manager getting to know him and driving from site to site loading and unloading materials, and today, Friday, I started by attending a cerimonial groundbreaking at a heritage revitalization project and getting the complete rundown of the project list and getting started on the first priority job.

      Hello, I am looking to save a little on the cost of travel to RTX this year again. I made the journey last year with a friend and had a blast. I'm looking for a group to trek with, preferable a total number of 3 or 4 so we can rotate driving turns and make it in a straight shot. I am looking to leave Toronto on Tuesday the 4th and Leave Austin on the 12th.

      If you are making the trip on both or either of the day let me know and lets go on an adventure together.

      *DISCLAIMER* I do not own a vehicle and can only drive automatic.

      All of you are the best people I know and I am proud to be counted among you.
      We lift each other up and hold each other together when we need help.
      When other won't listen or simply aren't their I can count on you.
      We've taken a few simple lines of comedy and turned them into a community.

      So I had a pretty good weekend. Spent Friday night replaying The Walking Dead Season 1 ep 1 and 2 then going on to ep 3, Saturday i went to a friends house for drinks and had an awesome hike through a forest with Laura on Sunday. My Sister also got into town Saturday for Pan Am swim trials next weekend and we got to have dinner at my dad's place last night, I should very ready for the week but inexplicably I'm down today.

      Some of you might know that I was accepted to Dublin Institute of Technology in their Architecture Program last summer, which I consequently had to defer, for financial and preparatory reasons. Well I ended up relinquishing my deferral because I wouldn't be able to secure EU student fee instead of International student fees. But I did apply to Canadian Masters of Architecture programs this winter. I Applied to 3 school and so far 2 of them have come back negative, one siting that my Architectural Technology diploma would not qualify me for the program despite my 4 years of work experience in the Architectural field. So I am now waiting to hear from the University of Calgary, who were my first choice to start with and everyday that passes I feel that my chance get smaller.

      Last night, after dinner my dad decided he would bring up that I should not go to RTX this as I should be hypothetically be saving for school, to which I replied that I should have the finances to do both. Still, I knew that this situation would arise where I was told that i'm not allowed to do the things that bring me happiness. And nothing makes me happier than seeing my friends.

      ...

      But Rvb Season 13 stats today, so at least I've got that going for me.
