Pokemon clip somehow came up in my YouTube feed, made me think of PPN, then back to here.  Took a while to remember the site Smiley Hi.
What's up. It's great to see old members drop by every once in a while. I've been lurking a bit just to see what's up but I never bothered to post anything.

It's been a long time since I was last active, so I thought I'd give you an update on what's going on with my life right now. Currently, I am a student at a Canadian university for Computer Science with a specialization in Information Security. I am going into my second year of studies this coming September. First year was challenging since it was a huge jump from high school, but I got through with a decent GPA. I'm really looking forward to second year since that's when I start taking more specialized courses instead of the general intro courses I took in the first year.

As for the summer, I'm currently working maintenance at a factory. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a job that's related to my field, but that's to be expected of someone who only has first year knowledge. At the factory, I mainly deal with cleaning and fixing the huge CNC machines we use for production. It can get depressing sometimes since I have to deal with oil, grease, coolant, and gunk everyday, but I'm only working there until the end of the summer so I just try to tough it out. The pay isn't too bad and it's definitely much higher than my pay at a different factory last summer. I'm going to use the money I earn to help pay for tuition and allowance during the school year.

My social life has been going well. Quite a few of my high school friends go to the same university as me and I also made a lot of new friends in my program during orientation week. Relationship is not so good though. I kinda just got rejected by this girl I've been talking to for three months, but it was partly for a good reason. We're still good friends and we still talk as if nothing happened at all, although not as much since she's on a vacation in a different country right now. What's confusing is that she still wants to go out with me when she comes back, so I guess I'll just roll with it and see what happens next.

Finally, I'm considering getting a 3DS eventually after the Sun/Moon announcement. It's been four years since the last time I played Pokemon, so I'm out of touch. The same girl found out that I used to play Pokemon, so she convinced me to get the game so we could play together. I'm also going to get Pokemon Go for my phone when it comes out later this month and I hope that the game turns out to be amazing.

This has been quite long, but I thought I'd share my life with you guys. The last time I was active in this community, I was just a stupid 14-year old high schooler who did nothing but play video games all day. Now that I have actual responsibilities, it's quite difficult to find time to do the things I enjoy. Every once in a while, I'd find time to spend on myself and I'd look back to the times when I could just do whatever I wanted. Ludicom is one of the things I'd look back to and it's nice to lurk and see how everyone's doing since the PPN days. I hope you guys appreciate this and I would love to hear from you guys as well!
