Good luck. Hope its a good job.

I've been very lucky that in the 20 years that I've been working, I've only had 2 jobs. Was with one company for 15 years and with my current one since. The quality of life you lead is so different when you enjoy your job.

Thanks for the well wishes. I was hired to be a Travel Consultant for Flight Centre. Finally get to put my studies to use and get that change I've desperately been seeking. Been an amazing year of growth for myself and glad to have all the foundations set to tackle the next goals for 2014. Hopefully get to enjoy the many travel incentives involved with the job but more so have a larger income than the pissy part time situation I had before. First week of training done - Full on job I'm undertaking but definitely ready!

After this year I've thoroughly enjoyed the off-season. Been pre-occupied embracing adult life that I haven't even considered footy. 9 weeks til NAB Cup if you really want to know ;) I can still wait though...can't wait to put parts of 2013 behind us.

Congratulations to my 2 beautiful daughters:

Number 1:

Did her Honours in Law following HD's in all her Law subjects but refuses to practice as she can't lie. Her last tute was by the Law Associate Professor who told this year to all the Honours Students that they had 2 choices; Practice the Law or Tell the truth; you can't do both.

Last year got a 98 in her Thesis of her History Assignment (highest in Monash History Department history) and just came back yesterday from her Fellowship in Florence after a month there on Monash. She will do her PhD from 2014 and become a Associate Professor in her chosen field in a Academia career wherein she can have a life whilst doing something she loves...foregoing a Law "career" in lying....already Lecturing Undergrads 3 Days a week and doing 2 days a week research for the head of the History Department. =D>

She thoroughly agrees with the sentiments in: http://www.independentaustralia.net/life/law , having been pursued by every major Law Firm in the State. They are dogs.

Number 2

Didn't get the marks in VCE to do her Early Childhood Development Course (mainly due to an undetected early childhood disability since resolved) so did 2 years at TAFE, got her Diploma and in her 2nd Monash Year (HD's all the way) got a Scholarship to go to East London Uni on exchange out of 5 for the whole of Oz, and got back Wednesday. An example to all parents here that there is a 2nd way in.....VCE is not the be all and end all. =D>

There are always negative people in this World whose Jaundiced view of life will always bring personal attacks. Let them not discourage the rest of us.

I didn't go into legal practice because the laws and system in this country are bullshit. And lawyers are pricks.

J Daughter #1 tells me 80% of the top Law Grads DON'T practice.

Depressing that we have the 20% dregs "looking after us" :roll:

Wish we had the Continental system.

Congrats to the old bugger!!!

I really miss discussions with my old man who was in the rare position, such as your Dad, of having seen it all and thus able to make comparisons of some of the greats from yesterday with those of today.

Cheers Rocky,

I take it from your past tense, you Dad has passed. Sorry for your loss. :( Don't know how I am going to go when Dad goes especially now he is a 24/7 sole carer for Mum (Dementia - refuses to put her in a home - his generation stick). He is my confidante, best mate, advisor and just knows so much stuff.

Wish the Club could get all the older members to do aural history's of their memories of our mighty Club like the War Memorial did/is doing with our Vets. What is inside their heads is gold.

Couldn't be that hard could it?
