That being said, I know some of you haven't made the move to Facebook and never will so for your benefit I'll update you on what I've been up to and try to check in at least once a week ;)
In August 2007 I moved to Edmonton, driving west from Toronto for four straight days. Upon arrival here I scouted around and ended up falling (literally) into a grad program and the University of Alberta. I'm presently enrolled in a Master of Arts in English & Humanities Computing, one of two years completed.
A few months before Christmas I managed to score a job at Indigo books (there's only one in the city) and loved it... I really loved working there, loved my co-workers the works. The pay was a little spartan, it's hard to work almost full time hours and do a full course-load just to make ends meet but that all changed recently. I started work on a new novel in January and I'm pleased to report that it's a good 40ish pages done -- I'm going to be trying to complete this in tandem with writing my thesis AND working full time however.
Fast forward to May, 2008 - I was offered a job at BioWare, a contract term position and went through the interviewing process with great success; better still they asked if I'd come back for a second round of interviews for a full-time position instead. Some more sweating time passed and the next thing you know I'm the latest full time employee of BioWare working on a project that's of great interest to me ;)
Nine months ago I jokingly remarked to someone, "What do you do with a BA in English and 25 years experience in gaming? You work for BioWare!" today I'm amused at the irony.
