Jonael, I sympathise! It's exam week for me too... (At least in college, we only had "real" exams. Now I also have to sit and prepare for mocksl. Well, I guess it is a good thing: You get to screw things up beforehand and get potential silly mistakes out of your system)

And I thought law school was bad... The LPC is killing me :P Oh well, at least once I start real "work", the subject matter is going to be more challenging/interesting. I think I am just not cut out for the mindless drudgery that are these 1-yr mandatory professional/practice/qualification courses. Read 200 pages to learn how to fill in a claim form - yeah, my ideal way to spend an evening...

I always thought all that talk about 80 hr weeks in the law was exaggerating it a little.


... It turned out to be an understatement. (More like 90 hr/wk in restructuring - if you are a trainee. If you are a senior associate/partner, go straight to 100, do not pass go)

All the best with your exams!


PS: I want a holiday. But I am willing to settle for some sleep instead :P

This is why we don't see nearly as much of our gentle zephyr as we'd like, hmmm?   You need to open up the windows and blow through those stuffy rooms filled with legal papers, briefs, torts, and writs.... and waft over to the Dream again!

Haha, I think I'm resurrecting this thread a little too frequently for my own liking...

But it's that time again. I've started my work in Belgrade this Monday, so for the first couple of days things are gonna be busy. I also had a wee problem with acquiring internet, so, sorry for stirring up so much in the Bestiary and then disappearing right after.

As soon as I've eased into work I'll be around again grin

Oh, I just saw this, and now you seem to be back already!

Have a good start in Belgrade!

Sorry for the sudden fall into absence.. Internet up at the castle isn't as stable and powerful as I'd have hoped, so access has been severely restricted.
I guess there's also the fact that within the first week there's much to catch up on with.. the castle's interior has changed a bit so I need to modify my tour's speech and learn about new stuff. Having said that, it's been a couple of months since my last tour, so I still have to refresh much.. and that in 4 languages XP

Same as last year though, walking through the castle's mystical interior every day is conjuring up some fantastic ideas and urges to work. Hopefully I can plough on with the Zoho entry then.

Medieval technology I tell you! They might still get their energy with hamsters running in wheels or something... Make sure to feed them properly!  grin

I can help with the slow internet because of hamsters problem.

Step 1-Replace hamster with mouse.

Step 2-Put LSD or other major drug into the mice's water.

Step 3-Put cheese in front of the wheel so the mouse can see it.

They'll be moving so fast, it'll make cable look worse than dial up.

Oh, and I used dial up for many many years, I sympathise with slow internet.

Gonna be partially absent for a couple of days. Gotta hop & skip through a couple of countries (down to London to visit a friend, across to Athens to the family, and finally a jump to Serbia for my work placement) ^^ I'll keep an eye out for entries and revise the ones I promised to do so. Just bear with me if I don't do so on the spot

Right, and that's that done.. With august coming to and end, so too my second summer-job up at the castle finishes soon. Sorry I've been away entirely during this time, but I just couldn't go through the stress of finding a weak at best internet connection out here in the middle of nowhere. In a couple of days I should be back in in my flat in good old Dundee.

By having a quick look around (and having popped my head in once or twice) I see we've got quite some new members! That's wonderful news, I hope to get to know and develop alongside them very soon. And with that, though by the looks of it not purely because of it, increased activity in my cosy little bestiary shack. Exciting times

Hope everyone's been well over the last couple of months, thoroughly enjoying the summer no doubt

Best wishes,

Jonael

Hope you had a nice time at the castle, Jonael, and got some inspiration from it ;) I see you also have some projects open, so I'm looking forward to see some progress there! grin

Welcome back, Jonael!

This year, summer more or less decided to leave England around the end of June... But fortunately, I went to Iceland, where we were rather lucky with the weather overall - and whatever rain there was, my girlfriend just sat out in hot springs, letting the rain cool her face, while I like a fool went to climb mountains and managed to get wet and  cold.

Anyway, good to have you back!

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.
09 May 2017, 14:17:18
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
