Heya everyone,

Just a quick note to those who've come in contact with me over the past week. I'll be gone for this coming week, from sunday to sunday. One of my uni course modules is Surveying, so we're off into the highlands for the week to do just that. Its out in the middle of nowhere, so unfortunately no internet connection.

@ Foraste Lydan: I'll have ya final correction sugestions up tonight before I set out so that your entry hopefully makes the update XD Sorry for the slow working.. this module's very time consuming and keeps me away from home for most of the day..

Alright well, hope everyone is having a lovely weekend, and enjoy your weeks much, whatever it is your plans are ^^

Hugs,

Jonael

Thought I'd just use this one again..

For the next two months I'll be around on and off, cause I'm starting my new summer job.. I'll be working at Glamis Castle as an international tour guide, haha. And tho it's only an hour away from where I live the bus connections up there are so horrendous that I have to stay up there during the week. They've agreed to let me sleep in one of their cottages... which is awesome, staying in a cottage at a castle!... but I wouldn't know whether there's internet connection in the cottage, lol. So, sorry if I'm out for a week at a piece (i should be able to return home once a week)

Hope y're all well,

Hugs,

How come I never got such a great summer job?!

(drools jealously drool)

I guess the fact that there are no huge old castles in Canada might have something to do with it...


Have fun, Jonael!

Yeah, Jonael, that's not bad as far as summer jobs go! The castle looks splendid. I hope, for your sake, that it's haunted ...? ;)

Aye, considered by most as the most haunted castle in Scotland grin

So I got the day off tomorrow, so I thought I'd pop back down to Dundee to get some more stuff from my appartment for the little Bothy I'm staying in... As my absence says, there's no internets up there, haha.. but considering I'm in the middle of the forest and dun even have tv, I'm looking at it as a healthy retreat and rehab from the busy student's life.

The castle itself is absolutely wonderful, the staff too just like a little family. There's soooo much to learn though XD I did my first couple of spanish and english tours these past two days.. but they weren't as good as I can see myself be. Just need to build up more confidence and know ever nook and cranny of its history I guess.

How's everyone else been and doing? Missed ya all hug

Okay, I guess you could say that there is ONE castle--but it's a tiny little one compared to those beautiful big European castles. Besides, I didn't live in Toronto then.   Casa Loma is a lovely little castle but as castles go, it's very small.  (We have memberships there and visit regularly with the kids)  And it's not even a hundred years old yet...but then Canada hasn't been around long enough (as a country) to have those kind of spectacular historical buildings.

 huh

A couple of weeks ago I was here, then some 200 kilometers onwards there was this one, with MANY inbetween that we didn't see (Btw, Incidental very nice picture from that second one).

And you're saying 'might'? *cough*

(PS: Yes, I know that you're joking, was just looking for an excuse to post those pictures :P)

Figured there wouldn't be much point in starting a new topic for a wee bit of information, so I added it to this here post.

I just wanted to explain my extended absence this past week, directing my apologies primarily towards Deklitch, given he's done a wonderful rendering of the Paxen, but I was never able to review and express my appreciation of the work propperly, (appart from in a couple of hasty pm's) Other than that I'm not sure there was any other 'topical' threads I had my fingers in... grin

Though I've come to the end of my full-time work at Glamis Castle (I now only work weekends there), third year of Uni's kicked in.. Though the course is not yet the maelstrom it promises to be, there's loads going on, lectures, labs, sports, social nights out. It all unfortunately adds up to a lot of nights where I just didn't have the neergy to give new entries my full and undivided attention. And unfortunately I'm not really one to start at something if I know I can only do a halfassed job at it ("halfassed" isn't a swearword is it? Or do I need to blank it? Haha)

Anyhoo, that's just so people dun think I'm on one of my dissapearing stints again (as has happened before).. Just a wee bit busy and occupied at the moment grin

Catch y'all around,

Hugs,

Jonael

Though I will try open my compendium scribbles tome from time to time I will appologise in advance if I miss any posts or don't reply right away.

I've never been to college (except for some semesters at the local community kind), but is college really *that* busy?

Depending on your major it really can be... expecially around exam time.  Good luck Jonael.

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
