Jon! Fin! Whoa you guys are a blast from the past. Good to hear you're doing good Fin :3

Jon come back! How are you?
I'm good! Currently recovering from a broken fibula and torn ankle ligaments from a football injury so got a lot of free time on my hands at the moment. How are you?

It's good to see that some old faces are still here!

Luckily the injury isn't painful at the moment but I haven't started any physiotherapy on the ligaments yet so I might change my mind on it then!

Did y'all kill the UFF forums at last? :( I'll miss that place.
For the record, it is still all archived and stuff, but it's just better for us now to have the old location forward to here. But we would never wipe away that history entirely, and maybe at some point we'll figure out a way to make it publicly accessible again.

Bright side: We're bringing back a couple of classic UFF skins, modernized, for this place soon. Keep 'em peeled...

3 hours trying to get through security at Heathrow, 7 hour flight to Dubai with cramped leg space, a few hours in Dubai International Airport (lovely place, but a shame I couldn't leave the airport, plus it was past midnight at Dubai time), 8 more hours going from Dubai to Hong Kong, no proper sleep, legs killing me due to limited leg room, and it's 34 degrees Celsius.

Travelling isn't all great.

^ 34 celsius, could be worse. :p A couple years ago we got 45 celsius weather here and it was horrendous. 34 is pretty bad though (and pretty terrible with too much humidity).

But yeah, I'm leaving in exactly 3 weeks and I'm hoping I can somehow knock myself out for the duration of the 12 hour flight. Getting really tense since it's coming up so soon, but at least I've now got a place to stay and the COE will be here soon (hopefully within a week). All I really have left to do is get my Visa, get my part time work permit ready and finish packing.

Tension is really high though... I stay up late and wake up before 5AM in a mild panic. The hardest part by far will be leaving my whiny kitty precious baby. She won't/can't understand and that makes me sad. The homestay family has a cat, but still. It wouldn't be MY boo.

It's definitely worse when you hail from a country like the UK where air conditioners in homes and anything in the 30 degrees Celsius range and above are either rare or nonexistent (sans a few places in the heart of summer like in London). xD

Good luck with the move! If you don't mind me asking, where are you headed off to?

Gonna be living in the suburbs of Kanagawa and going to school in Yokohama for the next ~2 years.

The area I'll be living at looks relatively sleepy checking it out on Streetview, but wow... Yokohama Station area reminds me of Tokyo. Easy to get lost exploring, so much to see. I did stumble upon a Yodobashi Camera and some old-fashioned arcades though B)

It's about 97 here with enough humidity to feel like im walking underwater.

the south kinda blows when it comes to manageable weather.

EDIT: holy crap I have a title, now.

I moved into it.

Yeah, I feel you. I basically had to resort to super comfortable sandals so I could walk everywhere without feetstank, basically no clothes + tons of sunscreen and bugspray.

I don't know what it is about bugs in the South but they are BIZARRE and evil.

Every now and again I get a wasp or a bee that keeps slamming itself a few times on my window. Like it's attempting to get at me.

I swear, every time I remember to log into this place more and more of you have popped up out of nowhere. Glad to hear you are all still doing well.

Being stuck in SoCal for so long has made me so unused to bugs that my reactions to them are almost comical. I am cool with stuff like beetles, dragonflies, butterflies and mantises, but anything that looks like it might suddenly move quickly or jump is horrifying. Almost panicked when I saw some bug on the sidewalk the other day, dunno what it was but I thought it was a dead leaf for a second and it scared me.

Also gained an aversion to spiders after getting bitten by a black widow. Thoroughly unpleasant experience.

And Jerusalem crickets look like they crawled straight outta hell.

Ummm... and tarantula hawks, I've seen them around before but it was only just recently I found out I should be afraid of those too.

The south has house centipedes, doesn't it. Oh god. Never seen one in person and I really wouldn't want to.

Katie! I've been good. Let's see, in the last few years I've gotten my master's degree in aerospace engineering from UT Austin (Austin is an awesome city, btw), got a job in Phoenix working at Honeywell in the Defense and Space division, got married, bought a house and a cat. So yeah, can't complain. How have you been? Phoenix weather didn't melt your car during the drive I hope?
