Hey!!!

Haven't wrote anything in a while, I've been busy working, studying and moving into my brand new condo... finally...

At Home, there is still a lot of problems to be solved though, like the floor finish to be changed since there's been a water leek BEFORE I get in it, and the ceramic tiles in the shower who absorbs the water (they turn dark grey when I shower when tey're supposed to be white) and replace all the doors of the kitchen cabinets because the handles haven't been installed properly...
and some other little stuff here and there...

At Work, now that we are done with Podcats season 1 (some episodes available in english on youtube), Iswitched to a more mature production: Ultra Marines The Movie based on the Warhammer 40K Games, The project is going well, I hope the fans will like it!!!

here's the link for the official website:
ultramarinesthemovie.com/

At School, I'm also having my last class to obtain a certificate in 3D Animation and Numeric design...

and I bought a PS3... yay!!!

Just a quick note to say that I got my interview today!!!
The lady told me that I should have an answer before friday...
They didn't tell me on which project I'd be working on, but I have some suspicion due to what they told me :) :) :)
Can't tell you neither, wouldn't look good to break the silence since I didn't start to work there yet, wouldn't be a really good impression to them!!!

and of course if I have the job, this means that my sciatic nerve HAS to be ok before sunday, or I'm going to have big problems to go to the job monday morning...

wish me luck!!!

My resume made it's way through the system!!!

I got an interview at Ubisoft thursday morning...
One problem though, my right leg is stuck, I can't walk straight...
The sciatic is stuck somewhere and for some reason my doctor can't manage to put it back to it's place AND IT HURTS SOOO MUCH, I don't wish that to anyone

I only hope that it's gonna fix itself before the big day...
I have 40 hours to get in shape or I'm gonna look like a 95 years old grandpa...

I put my diet on ice for a few weeks now and the good news is that I only took back 4 pounds even if I didn't really watch what I ate all that time, that's really nice...

planning to go back to the gym today when I'll come back from school...

thanx for watching :) :) :)

I have a Wii!!!

__________________________

since my last journal didn't stay long on my page:
someone showed me a series of puzzle on the net...
by replacing the last part of the url by the answer of the riddle on the actual page, you are guided to an other one... here's the link to the level one: weffriddles.com/level1.html
I'm kinda stuck on level 11, I stayed like an hour in front of it, I think I get the idea, put I can't pu my finger on the answer, hard to explain since I don't want to give any clue...
a little warning though, it is very addictive...
  • Reading: Moby Dick
3000 pageviews!!!

not very much to say...
I officially lost 87 pounds so far...
my clothes starts to be way too large for me, but that's nice :) :) :)
but I still have much to lose though...

I can't wait for the release of the Nintendo Wii, they finally announced that we will be able to grab it November 19th, and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess will be available for the launch, I'm going to put my hands on it for sure...

my second short for the NAD center is due for October 23rd, so let's go back to work... again... and there's 3 more left after that one and only 2 months to produce them...

taught it was time to update my journal, since it was dated of May 12th and that I was speaking of the E3 that ended one or two days after...

unfortunately I don't have much to say... except that my diet and my training sessions are giving results, I lost 66 pounds so far, still have a lot to lose, but it's encouraging to see my weight going lower and lower every day...
I have enough works to be occupied for the next 10 years to finish my first demo, but I have 4 weeks to finish it, just have to stop sleeping, eating, training, or whatever what you could ever come with...
I'll post it as soon as it is going to be done...

The break is over, I have to go back to to work... if I want to finish that damm movie one day...
I have to admit that I'm pretty proud so far, hope it is going to continue...
I'll try to post some pics to show the progress...

more than 2500 pageviews, woohoooo...
2000 pageviews today!!!

took me 20 months to have my first 1000, and only 5 to get my second 1000, that's so nice!!!

thanks for watching me :headbang:
