    I'm not sure why I haven't posted this yet, but I have a lot to be happy about lately.
    - After 5 years of knowing it existed, I've finally made it to the 70k this year, this has me going nuts since it was as crazy and unbelievable as I was expecting.
    - I know that next year I will be able to attend again for sure.
    - I just grabbed the new Trollfest and Ex Deo for review this week and they are amazing.

    So year, this february was a freaking blast as opposed to the previous 5 february when I couldn't go.

    Zeal and Ardor has a live lineup! :bmhorns: :bmhorns:

    In my dreams the odds of them being booked on 70K just went up. Or hell, even being booked on more fests/gigs.

    I no longer need glasses! Got laser eye surgery done. Main reason I skipped the cruise this year. Now don't need to choose before a show if I want to mosh. So I'm set for the cruise next year.

    Bad News: I have to drop a mortgage payment (of which I don't think much I can get covered by insurance) on a dental implant. So the odds of 70k 2018 happening are basically zero.

    Good News: After I GET the implant I'll be basically done with ortho work forever. And my surgery is scheduled for a couple weeks after Persona 5 comes off, so I'll just take the day off and play it!

    Back at work today, but had an amazing trip to Hawaii for one of my best friends wedding. Then we went to Seattle and spent a little time there, then drove 4 hours each way to Oregon to see The Goonies house and Haystack Rock. Also, when I got into work I found while I was gone I was given a wireless headset, which is pretty amazing.

      Wow, nice one!

      I'm on holiday until next Thursday, going back to France to enjoy some time off with some friends, and going to see the Deftones in Paris! Last time they were supposed to come to Paris, they had the Bataclan booked three nights in a row, from Saturday to Monday, I had a ticket for every night - but then, terrorist attack on Friday...

      Got told 2 weeks ago that my position will be made redundant at the end of this year. Been to a couple of job interviews and got my first job offer already!

      Will be one way or another walking out of my job here, getting a hefty chunk of tax-free pay, and walking into a new job.

      Woot! May even be able to go on 70k!!

      I know everyone thinks "statsman was always coming back", but seriously I was not intending to (or for that matter, couldn't even afford!) to do 70K next year.

      But once again, the stars have just aligned for me. Had I not been offered a redundancy by my current employer, and got offered a subsequent new job on significantly more salary than I'm on now, there is no way I could go.

      I'm not there yet of course! I still need to formally accept the offer for the new job, make sure I get my redundancy payout, AND then find a cabin!

      But regardless, I'm rejoicing :)

      Leaving Taiwan for Hong Kong, tomorrow heading back home.

      Will see my wife soon!


      Only a week until the next job trip, but at least that is only to the UK and also plenty shorter duration.

      I'm booking my flights for 70k tomorrow. They're a little more expensive, cause I'm not flying into Miami... I'm flying into Tampa a little early to (FINALLY OMG) visit one of my festival friends from Terminus :D :D. We've been basically trying to plan this visit since August, so I'm stoked it's finally happening.

      And I might even get to drag him down to Miami for some of the preparties.

      I remember talking to a German guy on the cruise a few years ago, he said it was illegal to work 60+ plus hours a week. I told him, it's the norm where I live... and no I don't work in the patch!

      I go to a kickboxing class during my lunch break. Today I was the only person to show up. I asked my instructor to play some metal rather the regular Bruno Mars and LMFAO he usually plays since it was just me (not gonna lie I do enjoy Bruno Mars a little bit). He started playing Disturbed and System of Down. I appreciated and thanked him for his effort but kindly requested he play something a little bit more my taste. He preceded to play a mix of Immolation, Krisiun and Morbid Angel. Definitely kicked and punched harder then usual today!
