How to sum up an entire decade? :)

I have moved in many circles, most of which would be glad to have me back, but I don't have time for everything. I lost a job, started a degree, found a job unexpectedly which was great until 2020 killed everything, oh, and two years ago I got married. Now living in a pretty house with a good-sized garden, and have chooks (chickens). I have discovered some crazy cool things on the internet, such as marble sports.

What was your job? What's your degree?

Marble sports? Like, competitive sculpting?

Marble sports as in racing! Here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYJdpn ... gGT9fIzL0g The Marblympics is my favourite.

My last job was at a childcare centre, and the degree is in theology (hence Hebrew as a subject). I did mind the job loss at the time, but I already knew that wasn't going to be a career, so it had to end sooner or later. I miss the kindergarten kids, and I'm a bit disappointed that almost none of the parents have kept in contact. Oh well. When I don't have essays and translations to do, I try to make the garden productive (by which I mean mostly vegetables). I should go work on an essay now, starting with translating the passage from Greek! Yeah, I'm a sucker for translations, aren't I?

Wow, that's a plate full of fascinating things. Is the degree towards academia or clergy? Or something else, I guess.

I have literally never heard of marble racing.

Let's go with toward something else. :) Honestly, I don't know, because it's not for ordination, probably not for academia, but not just for interest either. Well, maybe the languages are partly for interest, because plenty of theologians get by with only one scholarly language. But you can't expect someone of elven language background to only take one language!

You should watch something of marble racing! The commentary really makes it. If you have ever watched any other competitive sport, you'll appreciate that commentary.

Password requirements are a joke anyway. I wish more logins accepted XCKD936-compliant passwords.

Nope. Most of them insist on numbers and special characters.

A special character can be used as a separator between words. You do have to tack on a number usually. Xkcd has a nice password generator based on this principle here https://xkpasswd.net/s/

Oh, nice! I didn't know he'd created a password generator.

You do not get to just gallop through here and disappear, missy!

No. No galloping, skipping, breezing through, stopping by, or popping in is allowed.
