    As you know the industrial engineering doesn't change that rapidly. :P

    The training is mostly for personal growth.
    Agreed. But even our personal growth programs are fairly involved and extensive.

    The company has it's own 'university' online but from a career development stand point it's been a bit behind. That's changed now as they just brought in a new system. Saying that, I'm not overly keen to keep to just the company learning system but they don't seem to offer much for taking courses outside the company.

    Sometimes, taking the train through an area you don't normally do, helps to remind you of how different and similar things can be. Sometimes I forget how large of a city Newark is...simply because I mostly commute through it as a transfer point...

    Here's a couple of more pics from the weekend. It's almost the end of the day here and I'm feeling a bit rough. There's few people sick around me. Hope I'm not catching anything. :/

    London Eye
    adobephotoshopexpress_10627538ea3745cd99a169bc753519bb.jpg

    This is the Tower of London. There is an art installation for the anniversary of WWI. The red things are ceramic poppies and each one represents a fatality of that war (888,246). The name of the installation is taken from a line from a poem by anonymous solider. The Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red.

    Cannot believe I've been posting on this thread for a whole year...

    Last year when I made this trip and was posting, I owned a 810 but was in the process of getting a 8X. I also was more of a nervous worry wart, wondering what lay before me embarking on this MSW. A year later, my devices have changed and I feel more comfortable in the choice to return to school. Still, it is my first year or field instruction (AKA working for free or internship), so some nerves still exist.

    I know I have to make this trip one last time, same time next year. I do wonder what the future holds, but am more comfortable in being an active force to shape it.

    I find it amazing what can happen in a short period of time myself. One year in my life comes to mind, actually wasn't a full year even.

    I try to see the future as a possibility but not definitive. I'm trying more to live in the now and sort out things to help with the future.

    Having a plan and a goal are always a good idea. :)

    Nice....my 1 year is in a couple of months but I only started being active in early December if I recall correctly so technically it is a few months away:-) And yes I have cycled through quite a few devices since the Lumia 521 I snagged on Amazon for $75 -what a steal in 2013!

    Funny enough, I take a similar approach. Nothing is set is stone. Goals are broad ideas to pursue, tasks and objective more specific stuff. Sometimes one takes shortcuts through dark patches to get to places, but it is how well you can sleep at night with what's on your conscience that matters too.

    Life overall is interesting. I'm trying to enjoy the journey more as I get older.

    Moving in weekend for college is always fascinating. Especially for the freshmen...all these baby faced looking youngsters. Some will make it unscathed, some will struggle, a few will drop out. Exciting times for youth indeed.

    Meanwhile, the vets like me are focused on finishing up to get on with the more pressing tasks at hand.

    Parking assist is being fitted in our Clio so we received a replacement car for this time. And it's was dirty as hell. So since I had time I decided to clean it a bit. Looks like it wasn't cleaned for over a year.
    Btw there is a cloth in the bucket :D

    well i try not to think of the past but the question seems to come up o.o
    here is something my teacher asked us " Give a brief writing sample. (three-paragraph minimum) Describe any game you’ve played, any character in a book you’ve read, or any event that happened in the last two-years that had an impact on you as an individual"
    im not going to say anything but it something that comes up :P
