    So the last time I wrote a proper blog entry was 3 years ago, in the middle of my working holiday in Canada. Since I'm nostalgia-ing away on Sals, might as well write this up before another 3 years pass! It was a once in a lifetime opportunity, I stayed for about a year working seasonal jobs, and went on some crazy ass adventures. I bought a minivan and inflatable mattress, and basically did a solo trip around USA's west coast living it up. Lots of hiking, eating, got some tattoos, sometimes meeting new people, but most of it was spent by myself. It was very chilled. Worked a summer job at a glacier. Long summer nights with new friends, spent floating around in our inflatable canoes on turquoise glacier-fed water. Went on a second USA roadtrip with these friends, about 8 of us split between two cars. One of the best and most stressful times of my life. Blowouts between friends, problems with the car, incredible sunsets over the grand canyon. I stuck with my friends that I made in my previous winter job (see 2nd last entry), and yes the girl, and we agreed to be exclusive eventually. It was really nice, but we always knew that it would be temporary. Still, we made the most out of our temporary relationship, and I wouldn't have had it differently. Recalling this Canada experience gives me extreme nostalgia, second to the nostalgia of Sals. There were no responsibilities, every day was a new adventure, spontaneity all the time, we were truly living in the present. When I eventually flew back home to Australia, I struggled. For a while. I remember distinctly returning back to my parents' house, and after all the 'welcome back's, I had a shower. It was the strangest feeling - like no time had passed at all, I was having a shower like I did every other day in that bathroom. I had changed, and nobody around me understood, because they weren't with me, and all the friends I made in Canada were gone. I went from the excitement of not knowing what would happen each day, to a life of routine and repetition. From spending a year sleeping next to someone in bed, to sleeping alone. I've always been a laid back person, and very fortunate to not be affected by mental illnesses throughout teenagehood. For the first time in my life, at age 21, I was quite severely depressed, and I didn't know what to do with myself. Every single day, it felt like I had this ball in my stomach, tortuously twisting and turning. I was desperate to get back the life I used to have, living without a care in the world, and doing whatever I wanted to, without consequence. I knew that I needed a change, so I moved out of my parents' house, got a full-time job in the industry I studied for, hit the gym hard, went on Tinder, basically tried to distract myself with anything and everything. Still the feeling didn't go away, and even now I can honestly say, that there's no way I could've lived with 'that feeling' inside me for the rest of my life. If somehow I knew that that was going to be forever, I would've ended it. I was getting involved with girls no good for me and exacerbated my depression, but I just needed to feel something. I went to therapy which was alright, but what got me through in the end was knowing that only time could heal what I was feeling. It was a bit of a process, but eventually made it. Fast forward to today at age 24, I have a great girlfriend who I'm pretty sure is my future wife, I bought an investment property over in Brisbane, and I have a well-paying job that I enjoy and have near-full autonomy over what I do day to day. Actually, tomorrow I'm getting a student assistant who will be helping me out, and at my age it's pretty unreal that I get to manage someone! Also just in general thinking about my life thus far, the adventures I've gone on and life experiences I've had, at 24 I'm pretty exhausted after all that and I'm ready to settle. God it feels weird to say that. I'm still so young! I'm very lucky to be in the position that I'm in now and I'm milking every second of my youth. Nowadays, I play league of legends (hardstuck gold), I've just started playing OSRS again, gyming, going out on the town, watching stuff on tv, catching up with friends. Sounds pretty boring and generic hobbies, but I'm genuinely very content with myself and life. Next blog post I'll probably be married with another couple houses and 10 kids!

    The site is outdated and doesn't receive new content anymore. It can't compete with the Wikis. Let's revert the site redesign and bring back the old Sal's Realm!

    Some of you guys may remember that Regicidal was one of my biggest inspirations when I was hanging out here a lot, like 8 years ago. Today, I've come full circle as he and I plus another friend of mine made a rap song talking about RuneScape. Pretty crazy, huh.

    @Fatalysm Nice of you to mention my name twice there I kind of feel the same way as Yuanrang, so many names to remember and I'm scared I'll leave someone out. There also many names I recognise but I also can't remember how...

    For years, I have thought about making such a list, writing a personal comment, but.. where the hell do one even begin? So many years. So many names. So many name-changes. So many memories. So many that are lost to time and the void of my goldfish-like memory. Sal's has changed my way in so many ways, some small, some absolutely life altering. At some point in time, this place will go down, and we will all leave a part of ourselves behind when it does. ...but until then, this is home away from home before I got my own home. You? You are my extremely dysfunctional family, and I love you all for it.

    Then again, you do not need much planning to have kids! I know a lot of people from my year that ended up getting kids years before they were ready. Some, to be fair, are not even ready to this day. Children is probably a joy, but they certainly also seem like a prison. I think being grown up to want to "settle" down comes in many shapes, sizes and situations. What I would say is that, after settling down, I would say that "feeling the magic" is more about a state of mind. I find that one's definition of "magic" often changes, so my best suggestion is for you to look for what is magical to you nowadays, if you want to feel that... comfort, passion and happiness. I am doing well, yeah. I am bracing myself from the pre-Christmas rush with grading and assessing students, and facing the dread of 6 months of snow and ice during the darkness of winter, but at least the non-work parts of my life is going rather well.

    For my next magic trick, I shall make thee go away for 10 months. Unlike your outlandish claims of telepathy, I will now provide everyone with proof that your suspension is all too real by not seeing you until mid-May in 2022 at earliest.

    I have briefly read what yuan and fatalysm have said - not due to interest but just my own personal lack of commitment to any piece of prose that's longer than a headline. I think the closest we have to that forum feel is facebook groups. I like my cars and the dedicated facebook groups have that 'community' feel to them, unlike reddit - sure, you can post a question and it gets answered by someone, but its just not the same as seeing the same faces pop up. These groups also host local car meets and things like that so you get to start putting a face to the.... digital face. I'm sure there's runescape groups that act the same on Facebook, I've visited the reddit and pay no attention to who the actual users are commenting or making threads.

    heb0 responded to a post I made on reddit a few days ago. Said he lost his password unfortunately. Other names off the top of my head: Gonza Man The Evil Bunny Easl redmonke WolfieMario Some more looking through old posts: Mr E goglmogl Cake Ptolemy Da Scotsman Tawk Real reap- Edit: Looking at the leaderboard can't forget Twist of Fate, Arianna, Click This, and the OG top poster, Cxkslei. Lots of nostalgia seeing some avatar pics. Lilshu's avatar will be forever ingrained in my mind, same with Macki. Arianna's former ava is really nostalgic. heb0 always changed his with the seasons I believe. Before he changed his stuff, redmonke's pic rings a bell. Adam? and Click This are classics. Kind of weird I still have parts of my brain dedicated to remembering these things...

    If you keep comparing yourself to people you know are better than yourself, you are going to crush your own morale and as a result, not improve very much. I always tell my students that the key goal is to perform to the full extent of their own capabilities. People can have a bad day and do poorly on an exam, but the trick is to be preparred and ready to take it. Anything beyond that is circumstancial and very dependant on the situation. My advise to you is to look at your grades and ask yourself "What do I want to improve?" or "What can I improve?". For the next semester or school year, put specific goals and work dilligently to reach those goals. That is far more productive and easier than to set impossible standards and measure yourself against them. :P
