Theres that. Some careers are just setting yourself up for an uphill battle. Cant seem to find a good balance on work and play. Story of my life.

I frequently got shit just because my name happened to be KennyC; no matter what positions, logic or evidence I brought up. I could be arguing that the sky was in fact blue, and they'd still take issue with it - just because it was me. Its the nature of the internet - its full of senseless twats.


You will notice a trend between a lot of those who claim they could beat L-W hands down. Most of them weren't around during the time he was, so they fail to take into account that a lot of the rules and policies that dictate our site didn't exist. Besides, whose to say he hasn't amended his thoughts on certain subjects that he may have mistaken about?

It's definitely good to see you back, Mata. It's been different without you.
Hope for the best. Plan for the worst.

Well as you know, Im a graphic artist that has been stuck in a shit 9-5 for job stability. I took this position as a jumping-board to the more graphically inclined jobs within the agency. Sadly, the hiring freeze in place for the agency at the time made it nearly impossible for me to switch career paths as I intended. So up to when I went on FP sabatical I was barely tolerating the job. I had enough of it. Had to get out. If I was at the verge of outright quitting to pursue self-employment ventures, but I explored a few opportunities that would make me more attractive for other agency components. This past year, I have been on volunteer detail to develop lessons and train new personel for my current position. The presentations I've designed during this time have caught the attention of the Office of Training and the Office of Communications. My 3 consecutive 120-day detail period ended a few weeks ago, and quite serendipitously(?), a new job opened for the closest agency position to my VFX degree - Audio Visual Production Specialist. I did some work for the selecting officer during my time training, and I have a strong chance to get the job as long as my application goes through the automated "red tape" system.

Now Im just in a wait-and-see status. Pretty much back to riding the clock till I hear about my application being processed.

Speaking of, how is the debate arena looking? Any development in rules and/or formats while I was away?

And Im feeling better and better about it. The time Ive been away/lurking felt almost as phantom limb syndrome. Its good to get some blood pumping into this "limb" again.

Thanks, peeps.

Sadly, its government. We all know at what pace they (we?) process things...
