Kovy retired, how much money is awaiting him in russia?

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

Probably a lot, I was surprised he retired. It didn't seem like his play dropped off much or anything

He probably wants to go back home and make ridiculous money. The fact is that Russian NHL players can get payed double back home, it's just that most of them rather play against the top competition in North America. But then there's other guys like Radulov who rather make $12 mil a year, but then there's Ovi who could probably pull $25 mil but rather play against the best in the world. The only people that benefit to play in Russia are homegrown superstars or second tier players who would be making 2.5-4.5 in the NHL and make 4-7 in the KHL.

Ugh, keep feeling really dry, even though I keep drinking a lot. Hopefully I'll feel better before I go in for work.

Strange day on xbox live for me. I had a friend who was a year younger than me, who had a friend another few years younger than me. He joined the party, and his mom heard me and thought I was a grown man. And to finally tell the truth, I'm only fourteen. I wasn't sure to be guilty or laughing.

Ever felt like you want to go hang out with your buddies but when you contact them they're all "i'm not sure if i can tonight, i'll tell you in a bit" but then when they finally decide wether or not they wanna hang out it's already a bit late and you no longer feel like going anywhere?

Because that's basically my night.

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

I know that feel, bro. Is your night going to be boring because of it, or do you still have something you'd like to do available?

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

Well my night is not outright ruined but i've been feeling a bit "stuck" lately, which is why i wanted to hang out. Do something a bit different and get out of my routine.

I told my girlfriend this and we went to have dinner outside and came back and snuggled a bit and had some sex so i already did *something*, but then she had to go home to do her own stuff and i was left here without much to do.

It's late so i can't go to the store get something to drink, so i'm just staying at home like usual. I'm probably going to go upstairs to smoke a bit and play gba roms on my cellphone, or listen to some music, or play tf2 afterwards. I can find stuff to do, just not stuff outside of my usual toybox, so to speak.

How about you guys, how was the week? Mine was quite normal, nothing bad happened but nothing out of the ordinary either. Quite an average week.

Happens to me a lot, I know that feeling. It's either that or they don't reply

Yeah, bit of a bummer but nothing to do if other people don't feel like hanging out either.

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

True, I decided to go out to eat anyways, haha.
My week was ok, everything has been going along normally for a while now. Just working 8:30-5 monday-friday, then relaxing saturdays and the hiking on sundays or the reverse. This Sunday my dad and I are going to go see the local major league soccer team, so that should be fun

I've never gone hiking before. Can't say it's something that thrills me anyway so i haven't put thought into it. Must be the region i live in and it's lack of true hiking spots.

I'm nervous because i'm just a couple of months from having to decide what to do to receive my title. It's either graduation by thesis or by coursing a specialty or a masters degree. My idyllic option would be getting a master degree in something because then i'd receive my graphic design title plus a master degree title in something, but it's too expensive for me at this time, not even with a part-time job i'd make enough to cover the costs.

A specialty is within my reach, but finishing a specialty gives you nothing in terms of curriculum, it has no weight nor grants you any kind of recognition or title, it's just the requirement for graduation.

A thesis fucking terrifies me.

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

Sat Jul 13, 2013 12:40 am

Hmm, strange that a specialty doesn't really grant you anything. A thesis terrifies me as well, and yet it is inevitable that I'll have to write one, it's the only way to attain a master's in my field.

Ya, I'm fortunate to live in an area where I can drive and hour or so and be in some pretty magnificent wilderness.

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

^Same. It's a perk of living where I do. Wish I could go hiking again with my elder sister. She always knew the best hiking spots when I was a kid.

Popovic is already fully grown, she's a mix of dachshund and portuguese podengo. Orianthi still has a bit to go since she's a mix of podengo and labrador retriever.
Popovic is 7 months old and Orianthi is 3 months old.
