Picked up a neat trick from some one who likes to lurk in the shadows.  ;)

Really though I've just been busy with a new job. Seems like everyone else has pretty much dropped off the face of the earth too.

Considering getting a new camera. Looking at the EOS M used. Small, cheap adapters for manual lenses, records RAW video, mic input, and cheap! ~$200 for a bundle including a 18-55 IS lens. Cons include meh battery life, slow autofocus, slow stills framerate and, no built-in viewfinder. Considering the price and what I can do with it, it's worth it to me at least.

So... I moved from one state to the other a few months ago.

Today I was in a four hour meeting at work, then on the service desk, then tried to knock a few things off the to-do list, including those for an event tomorrow o.o

Thanks to Russ for the sig!

Lots of projects are due tomorrow. Must... Sleep...

On another note, the camera I ordered arrives to it's destination tomorrow! I'm picking it up Saturday. I hope the middle person remembered about the FD to EF-M adapter...

I got the adapter a couple of weeks ago and it's been fun. $12 thrift store lens find and ducks at the pond are a good combo. There are no battery grips for my camera, but I might make one myself. One dilemma is that the battery door can't be removed, so I have to leave a slot in the grip for it. Good news is that SD card extenders are cheap. I also might be able to 3d print some of the parts.

Cheers.

Dear diary,

First snow today. Bit rainy still it snow. Can't remember when was the last time we had a snow this late. XD

In other news; I'll be moving soon. Not far, a few cities over, but I'm hoping that in addition to the cheaper rent (~a third less than Toronto properties!) I'll get to meet some similar minded people (or even just friends I can hang out with) in my new local. Having to travel 30-60minutes (one way!) just to socialize for a few hours is a terrible detriment to all my relationships. I miss the days of my childhood when I could walk/bike/skate to my friends and show up unannounced to hang out.

My greatest hope of all, though, is the university. University of Waterloo. Ranked third in Canada for it's math department behind UofToronto and McGill. McGill! World renown, with persons of international influence on their faculty lists.

I don't know when it happened. Maybe it's from the anti-celebritism I've been culturing in myself since high-school but I really don't feel any of the fear and awe I hear in others' voices when they talk of the most celebrated things and people of our society. I recently found myself thinking of how I could get out of bowing to English royalty and calling them by their honorifics, should the occasion ever arise. I mean, Canada is barely a crown colony anymore. What little ceremony Canada observes is just for show, to honor whatever legal contracts have been retained since colonial days. Speaking of which....I wonder if England/the UK have ever made reparations to the indigenous people of Canada.

Okay back on track.

There's a lot of things I don't miss or can do without, these days, that most people would be at least mildly shocked at. I mean, it's not terribly unusual. It's just one of those things that have no presence within social interaction. You don't miss it so there's very little impetus for you to bring it up in conversation, so it just doesn't come up. But like my mention of childhood socializing, I do miss having friends who are more than just emotionally close. It's nothing new. I'm sure I've made mention of it in the past. But to summarize it all more succinctly; what I miss, and all that most people typically want out of life, is a place to belong. For a little while I had that here (thank you everyone <3) but now what I really need are friends that I can touch and live every part of life with.

Here's hoping Waterloo has some of that waiting for me...

It's the night between dec 5 and dec 6. It's a special night here in Hungary. All the good kids clean out their shoes and boots an place them in the window for Saint Nicholas/Old man Winter/Santa Claus is coming and give sweets for good kids and coal/twig for bad ones while the worse kids are taken by the Krampus. So here I sit infront of my PC waiting to everyone to got to bed so I can place chocolate Santa Claus figurines into their shoes... Knowing that my dad stays up util 3-4 this will be a long night. Off to play Starcraft!
