    Agreed. I'm doing this very shortly myself. Potential opportunity with the OPS even though it's a bit rocky considering the new government, but great experience nonetheless.

    My last exam of the semester is tomorrow evening. [bleep]. Then one more day of work and I can drive home in two days. A good ~100km drive, so not too bad. Hopefully doesn't snow too hard... even though I have my winters on.

    And here I am getting dates but that’s about it. This one girl I’m talking to asked to go out for drinks but this week because of work and exams I don’t have the physical time. Ugh.
  4. Guess in that sense it prevents you from skulling.
  5. Congrats on your promotion to a [P] Member

    Sounds like the equivalent of diversion here. If you have no criminal record or any history of offence that can bite you in the ass, then that sounds good. I assume hiring a lawyer helped make that happen?

    Difference is people buying things domestic vs internationally. My issue is that there's so many things you can get overseas that don't even compare to what we have here in North America.

    Should be able to order from overseas without having the price jacked up by 3-4x. Some tax, I get, but that's just ridiculous. I bet they'd make more money off of it if they lowered it because people would actually be willing to pay it. [bleep]ing Ontario.

    Yeah, but I mean it's a wide window. https://travel.gc.ca/returning/customs/what-you-can-bring-home-to-canada#alcohol Last time I went I didn't have checked baggage; just a carry on as I was backpacking.

    More so some I tried in Europe I want here. Next time I go I'll take my max limit I guess.

    Anyone have booze you liked overseas you can't get locally? Or maybe it's a me problem considering my province's [bleep]ing liquor monopoly.
  12. e: thought this was the Today thread. Ffs.
  13. I would reach out to friends and family. You probably have more friends than you know.

    Yeah, the decline hit forums quite hard as people could just use wiki or clan chats for answers to questions. Or, hell, even video guides. All much easier than posting on a forum. By the time I was an admin on Zybez, we had lost quite a lot of ground and tried to revitalize the boards using competitions, etc. Our main site was desperately out of date because we had no more content team members who were willing to update the site. There was just far too much to update with too few people. I'd assume it was similar here. We were successful briefly with the OSRS Exchange but it didn't last long when Jagex introduced the G.E. Pretty soon our main bread and butter came in from the clan section. Then when that started to decline, the boards became a ghost town and sure enough Curse (our parent company) closed it down because it became too expensive to maintain.

    How come this qwerty person doesn't want my account? I'm offended.

    Yeah, I can see how it would apply in that way. I guess I was spoiled with a simpler "rating system" elsewhere which simplified everything greatly (e.g. when to suspend for 21 days as opposed to 7 days, or when to give a final warning, etc) so got to see both worlds.

    Yeah, I did find the system a bit unnecessarily bureaucratic.

    So when is RPG getting mod?

    Hope it works in your favour Dash.

    I find that I regret not taking shots more than I regret taking them.

    Being honest, I haven't really found love for myself yet. I know I will, but I'm just not there yet. What I've done is that I'm focusing on myself career wise. Trying to build myself up from the bottom will give me a solid foundation for any relationships or anything else I want to build. e.g. I originally wanted to become a physician, but at this point in my life it's probably better to move towards becoming a nurse practitioner instead. Less years of stress and I can start my career sooner. -- I had a strange dream last night. It featured a girl who used to bully me throughout high school but ironically she was chair of the "anti-bullying" committee at the school. I still laugh at the irony to this day.
  22. Welcome aboard. It's unfortunate that these boards are no longer where they used to be activity wise. Still nice to see some new faces. :-)
