I like to collect interesting things that happen as the weeks go on. If I have enough of them, I’ll post something about them so it seems like I have much more to say than I actually do. Let’s start.
CCF Winter Retreat
CCF Winter Retreat was fun and cold. Fun because it’s the first retreat I’ve been at with my new fellowship and cold because the heat was broken. It was also fun because UWCCF alumni know how to cook and it was tasty. It was also cold because every last person got snowjobbed.
It was also my first time serving at Waterloo. I was asked if I wanted to help out with A/V and I decided I’d might as well start and see what happens. As it so happened, the place had nothing so we had to rent everything. By we, I meant that me and my friend had to learn how to rent everything too. No more just having everything magically appear and fiddle with knobs.
Looking for housing was an interesting experience, particularly in the final stages. Let’s just say that it was very trying to work with some people and I’m kind of disappointed in the way things turned out. But, I did end up scoring with a good house, with a good location, at a good price, with a good bunch of roommates.
So as we all know, Jobmine was kidnapped by ninjas, and for four days, no one was a bad enough dude to rescue Jobmine. Once it came back up, I applied for a total of twenty jobs, mostly web design and testing. There are some development jobs, but I think I’m still way too noob to actually develop. As for location, I thought I really wanted to come back to Toronto for the summer, but as it turns out, a lot of the interesting jobs are in Waterloo. We’ll see how this plays out.
I may spit out a few more posts later on about various things like things from Jesse’s messages at Winter Retreat or WoW.
