    Lots of warm wishes to you and others in that sort of cold ^^
    Love

    It may be a McJob, but you aren't demonstrating the best work ethic by playing hookey. You might not want to be sharing this information here if you are wanting to impress future employers.
    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    This reminds me of driving 14 hours from lapland a few weeks ago.. It was about 7 am and I had just started driving when I notice it's -33C outside + a pretty insane wind. I had to just pull over and walk a while with only jeans and a hoodie on to try how cold it felt Didn't feel too tired after that I can tell you.

    Flip, I just came back from Edmonton yesterdya. Way way way too cold. My girlfriend and I were almost too afraid of the cold to run from the hotel to the car, lol.

    It's not much better up here in Calgary, though. Even bundled up in full winter gear, I felt like I was gonna freeze just taking out the garbage!!

    The top photo was the view outside my window near Strathmore, AB this AM

    The lower photo are sundogs for anyone who has never seen them.

    Yes, the sun only gets this high in the winter, and yes, it's a dry cold!
    The truth will set you free,
    but first it's gonna piss you off!

    You don't understand Seedling. Part of my day job is the role of being....the walking courier: pushing/pulling heavy boxes on a cart 6 blocks in total.

    And....I can just overtime the rest of the week (to make up this day) when the forecast is a little bit more humane.

    And...I'd rather draw than get my nuts frozen.
