Huzzah oh awesome community,
I finally got some time to write up what has been happening in my life lately. Maybe some of you guys remember me from the days I started out at gbatemp, but I can't blame you if you don't. The community has changed quite a bit as well since I left in July last year!
Guys I'm going through some of the hardest and yet most exciting times in my life so far. I've gotta say that my life actually changed for the better.
I am finally a legal resident of Australia! This was one of my major achievements for the last 12 months, and I gotta say I'm proud that I actually got it. It was hard with all the formal crap (around 500 pages of paperwork/forms etc) and the finances (cost me around 4000$), but I managed to get through it. I also started to study for my MCSE 2003 (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer 2003), CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate), MCDST – Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician and CompTIA A+ degrees. I can hardly wait to go back to study again!

I had a huge struggle with myself about the question if I should go for my passion as a musician and become a professional performer or go with my interest in IT. I went to a couple of career advisers and I made a decision to study IT (because the market in Australia is booming hehe) and still play music in my free time. Maybe I can still become a professional musician. Maybe. Who knows.

Lastly I gotta say that I missed out on a couple of games in the last 6 months, still haven't been able to finish FFTA2, Chrono Trigger and FE Shadow Dragon (I also bought a new PS2 with heaps of games of which i could only finish FFX so far

). But I always have time for a bit of World of Warcraft since the WOTLK expansion came out. I'm a big Warcraft lore fan; I'm playing Wow not because I'm hardcore but for the lore.

Anyways, thanks for reading guys. I'm glad that I sorted most things out now and have more time for more fun things again (gbatemp, anyone?).
See you on the orums!

Chris

Yes see thats what was throwing me off. I recognize your avatar now. I remember visiting your Myspace too! There was some girl here who was a lesbian and her username was similar to yours I think, which is why I was getting them mixed up.

Anyone know who I am thinking of?

Welcome back!

(I made the same mistake for half a second. It required a double-take)

(It's a long-time favorite movie of mine, not to mention a favorite character.)

Man I am going so off topic lol
(You and me both. /rambling )

Howdy neighbour! It's great to hear that some of your troubles are clearing up. Are you still working at the pizza joint? Perhaps I could drop by sometime, I've recently moved from the Gold Coast to Toowong. It sure is a small world.

Welcome back acoustic.digital. That's quite the bold move going to Australia! Hope everything works out for you with your IT studies. Hopefully the Australian IT market is better than the US one right now. Pretty bleak over here at the moment.

Good luck with your music too. Don't give up on your dreams just yet man! Earning a living doesn't have to be the end of your music dream. No, dreams aren't completely dead until you have a wife and kids.

Hehe I have not yet given up my dreams. not yet.
Yeh the IT market here in AUS is booming, theres a 30% growth every year and they can't have enough IT specialists here! They promise you a lt of money here, but well, we'll see how that works out in the end.
