    And done. = )

    Also, thanks for your comment on the first part of Foul Play. I plan to reply yours and the others' feedback soon, but I talked a bit to Vragon over the concern with Grimsley's reactions/emotions when he first arrive Alola. Don't know if I'll make any big changes over that in the first chapter, but I'll try to make that more apparent in later ones.

    Neat aside - there is a giant radio telescope near completion in China. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_hundred_meter_Aperture_Spherical_Telescope

    AH, cool. Got a bit of time to prepare for them!

    Yeah, it does. Especially as that's three I've had where I've apparently done well, but in the end someone had the experience or they wanted a different direction to what I could offer to the job. =/ Bluh.

    And fair enough. Try not to get lost in there.

    Done that test yet?

    Alas, still no luck for me with interviews. :< Apparently I do well in them; just that there are people with a better background for the jobs I've reached the interview stage with so far. Ah well, I'll just keep trying.

    (Did my skype message ever send btw?)

    Obviously the writing is great, but it's good that you're getting into other new things as well. Getting your driver's license is a huge step, that's really cool. Do you have your permit already, or are you starting from there?

    We just have to get through a week long road trip across the country first. Did Geoff give you the play by play of what I was doing? Haha

    Good! What are you working on?

    And I hope my life is about to get a lot better, haha. Not that it's horrible right now, but a big change is coming up and I think I'm making a good choice. Late last year I moved down to Reno with a friend, now I've been back in Washington living in my parents house for a month before I move again next Thursday and go live with Geoff!

    We haven't talked in forever, and something tells me that you don't use Skype anymore (who actually does?). :(

    Here the minimum age is 16, and you just need to do a computer test on road rules for the learner's permit. In my state you have to have an adult drive with you for (at least when I was doing the tests) a minimum of a year and 120 hours of driving to be able to take another test, this time computer and driving. After that I can drive by myself but with a bunch of restrictions, and another 2 and 1 year wait with two more computer exams at the end of those periods later I got my full license.

    *sends luck* Wonder what american driver tests are like actually...

    Not going to canada, but have had two interviews since, both within Australia. Not even regular job season for astronomy yet... Seems I missed out on one, but the other interview was only yesterday but we'll see.

    No trips this year yet planned; was a chance earlier to go to the US but then I didn't get a talk and also I have this thesis to finish up this year anyway. Will let you know if it happens down the track though! On that note, there's currently a non-zero chance I could move to Canada for a job too. But we'll see.

    Never been to an Outback Steakhouse but I like steak at any rate! :V

    And I am fine, just all the busy, haha. Gotta move back to parents in a couple months too (lease expiring, flatmate who started earlier and hence runs out of money earlier wants to move out, so I shall too). I still am on Skype! Discord is cool too, but not without some issues (but then nothing is). Yourself?

    Ham eating is good. I had a bbq with family so had a good variety of meats. Also ham. Enjoy your vacation!

    I also met up with some friends who I haven't seen in many months so that was a good overdue catchup.
