Hey sorry for the delay. Yeah I passed my viva :kristoph: I'm on track to doctorhood and that feels super weird. Gotta tell friends and family to stop calling me "Doctor" cause it's so strange.

The viva went well, I've been given all the thumbs up. Things will still be getting verified and documentation processed, then I can properly call myself a Counselling Psychologist (or a Chartered Psychologist). Sadly, there'll be no big graduation ceremony cause of Covid, and I'd love a nice meal out somewhere but things are limited as is.

Now to exhaust myself in looking into jobs :sadshoe:


Congratulations on passing! Although, before you start a new job consider taking a break/holiday for a few weeks. When you start at your new position it will be hard to get an extended period of absense, so you'll want to recharge yourself first from all the stress of the study and the past year.

I wouldn't let this event go uncelibrated. It's unfortunate you can't get a ceremony or a big party, but a small gathering of family and/or friends is in order for such an occasion wouldn't you agree?


Thank you Sir Jibbey!

Small gathering of family sure that's available, we went to lunch in the local pub, but friends? That's trickier to pull together with tiers and lockdown and whatnot. Something sometime, maybe next week I'll be able to do something.

Also parents are putting plenty of pressure on me to apply for Jobs already so eh XD

Halfway through my one week off between quarters. Passed the last quarter with all As, which is a first for me. Haven't really been doing anything but playing video games, but I'm having a bit of fun. Sucks to feel like I'm wasting a day by doing nothing, but I earned a decent break. Hopefully next quarter isn't too tough, but I have a feeling it's going to be.

But once I get past that, I can start internship and hopefully it's either virtual or really close to where I live. I don't wanna have to drive two hours to the major city to work every day. Fingers crossed, ya know?

Art still looks great Dawn! Congrats on your second vaccine! Be as strong as Science can make you!

Yeah I'm keeping it together well enough. Think I'm pretty emotionally drained to be honest. Got lots of good things coming up but it's hard to get too hype about them because of it.

I'll have a flat of my own by next week which should be cool. Moving to the city. I've started my new Job this week but I'm kinda terrified of performance anxiety.

Jesus a whole quarter's gone by. Anyway, I find out where I'm being placed on Tuesday and I'm a little nervous. Thankfully most of the placements are WFH but still...these feelings of Imposter Syndrome are real.

Time seems to move faster every year. I joined this site in my early 20's and a couple of months ago I turned 30. My account on CR will turn 10 next year.

I'm taking it (really) slow with playing the 'new' Great Ace Attorney games. I'm around the halfway mark of the 2nd game, but lately i'm slipping into a habit where I stop just before I complete a game. There's just too little time to play everything and do everything I want. Currently playing Divinity original Sin 2 with my cousin after he's done with his baby for the day.

Also making decent progress playing my bass guitar. I plan on entering an event the music school hosts where starting students (Singer/Drums/guitar/bass/keyboard) perform songs together. Seems like a lot fun to me!

Nice to see that everyone has their own thing going on now. I'm still trying to be a successful artist. ♡

Psshaw! Dawn your art is great. Already a successful artist I'd say.

My life's been wild lately. Graduated, got a job, finally moved out.

Now I'm living in Glasgow, working from home, earning a decent salary and learning to survive on my own for the first time in ages. It's real scary but pretty exciting. I'd never expected I'd need to make this step on my own so it's hellah lonely for sure but eh I don't think that's something I can really do much with.

By most accounts: I'm successful.

It's nice to be part of a community where I can share things from my life/interests seperate from the 'real world'. I feel like this outlet has helped me develop the person I am today. It's nice to also see others doing well!

I was able to do something on my bucketlist, which was to play/jam with a band. I started playing the bassguitar with some light nudging from my friends. One plays drums, one piano/keyboard and one guitarist. Add me on bass and you have a band (without vocals).These guys have been playing music for the most of their life so everyone had to adjust to my 'level', but the experience was exhilarating to me. The drummer even threw in some vocals and some signs to help me get back on track when I lost the rhythm.

Best thing is that I see these guys almost on a weekly basis and the practice room we used is owned by the drummers parents. So the likelyhood of more jam/practice sessions is pretty high.

We had a great D&D session this week which i want to share. It's been 2 years since we started this campaign, at the start we were first time players and DM. I feel like this session showed our growth (from being murder hobo's)

After growing a bit to confident in our abilities last session ended with all of my party members unconscious, after challenging an archmage and a legendary warrior combo.I was able to surrender just before we were wiped (act of mercy from DM) and thrown in a dungeon to be fed to the monster down there.
I revived my unconscious but not dead teammates, had a short break to restore hp and went on to defeat the local monster baddy eating citizens and merchants.

This time luck was on our side. There was a small corridor which allowed us to exit 1 by 1, but was too small for the monster to go through. With a offensive and a defensive tank in the front and the mages cycling in and out from the back we racked up the damage pretty fast. He was resistant to fire damage, but our wizard can nullify fire resistances.
This monster struggled to reach us, and by the time he figured out that keeping us in the corridor was advantageous for us he was already pretty much dead.

With immediate danger averted we now needed an escape plan. The entrance was closed (locked gate), but we came up a plan to use the feeding shute to escape. Out wizard casted 'spider-climb' on us, we conjured a magical sound (a lot of people celebrating) and a big patch of fog. With the intention to draw the guards and confuse them.
We escaped through the chute and managed to avoid the warrior/mage combo. We left immediately since we succesfully drew the guards to our cellar.

Once we escaped we continued on our main quest. We left a few loose ends there, but at least we also still have our lives.
Next on the agenda was obtaining a guide which will guide us through a swampy marshland. We are looking for a legendary item smack in the middle of it (but probably cant reach).
we heard that the 'bollywoog' creatures can do this for us. We set course for their homeland of Aqulis.

We heard these creatures love shiny things and are easily impressed by authoritive figures. We prepared 100 shiny copper coins by polishing them to impress them.
After encountering some bollywoogs (frog like humanoid creatures) we offered the coins, but they demanded a lot more in order for their help. In addition, paying is not a certain way to get help, we could get scammed here.
Later we encountered a small group of 3 bollywoogs. We came up with a new plan: cast 'Hold person' on all 3 bollywoogs, cast a (hail) storm on our surroundings and convince the 1 bollywoog which resisted the 'hold person' spell
that he was the chosen one of destiny and he must fullfill his fate by guiding us through the swampy marshland.

He agreed, but also added that an item was necessary to see through the mist in the marshland. This item was in the center building of Aqulis, which in turn is a pretty heavy guarded fort.
The bollywoog helped us get inside the fort, where we found out that bollywoogs are incredibly bureaucratic creatures. The fort consisted of multiple checkpoints where forms are necessary tot pass through the gate. Getting in was pretty easy since our 'chosen' bollywoog filled these forms for us.
After arriving in the center of Aqulis our froggy friend couldn't help us further and agreed to wait near the swamp.
The center building is always being watched from theguardtowers. On the left side of the building is a window, where we could see the item (lantern) we needed to progress.
We had little time to come up with the heist, but we obscured the view to the windows with mist, went to talk to the guards in the watchtowers at the same time (and ask where we can find their merchants)
while our mage 'shadow stepped' in and out, leaving an illusion in place of the real lantern.

This illusion lasted 1 hour, so we had some time to visit the shop, which pretty much wasted our time. We couldn't go to the exit since we tried the 'wrong' door and once we got
to the correct one it meant filling in paperwork. We didn't put all our stuff and money on the form, so when the creature wanted to check our personal effects we gave him the shiny bag of copper coins and while he was counting those we casted 'spider-climb' so we could walk along the walls and bypass the last and only gate in our way.

The session ended there. I definitely saw the DM laughing a bit coy with all these open ends, so we will get our retribution eventually.
