        • This is how my buddy put it- It's like working in a first class theatre, in a five start hotel, sitting on top of a college dorm, orchestrated by the Greek Navy, and run by a phillipino mafia.

          Does that help? Probably not.

          I loved the job itself- working behind the console in the theatre was my fave part of the entire experience. My first boss robyn always made sure that she assigned us to theatre events at least once a week (or gave us convenient time off that lines up with rehearsal and shows in the case where she couldn't legally book us in (due to maritime scheduling laws). My second boss though was too damn lazy for any of that- no matter how much we begged him for time behind the console he wouldn't toss anyone a bone- even the head sound engineer (who was getting 14 hour days) was asking for some down time and this guy wouldn't budge... what a pissoff (had this guy for the last 2 months of my contract).

          Outside of that the travel was nice for the first bit as well (unfortunately shitty boss lined up with shitty itinarary). I enjoyed Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia, French Polynesia (Moorea, Papette, Bora Bora, Tahiti), Hawaii, but really had a hard time with Alaska... Which was my last stop.

          Food was meh- down in crew mess you had to get creative to get a decent meal. Up in the guest buffet (which my team was privileged enough to eat in) the food was of better quality but got boring as it was the same thing every day (minus a few variants which were repeated every cruise).

          Relationships were hard- you'd make friends and then they'd go home, or the other way around. My best group of friends I got together with 3 weeks before I went home- and it was heartbreaking to say goodbye to them. Shitty.

          Currently I'm waiting to hear back from work in town. If nothing then I'm headed back to work early- they wanted me back today (a whole month short of my allotted vacation.) when I said no they asked for September 5th... -_-'. If I don't get the offer in town I'm going for one more contract with Celebrity then calling it.

          It seems that the MDA file uploader is broken So I can't share anything right now.

          Oh! I started CF since getting home but it looks like that's getting cut short unless that job in town comes through. Wait and See I guess.

              • So I've been on a crazy hunt for work the past few weeks... and by crazy hunt I mean not so crazy but I really do want to find work in audio. Problem is that there is next to no work around. Not really excited for ships again but I guess I'll wait and see what happens.

                Crossfit is going well. Discovering that one of the motions I hated at 320lbs I'm loving now; Wall Balls (Medicine ball in hands, squat down, use legs and arms to throw medicine ball to a 10foot target, receive medicine ball and immediately drop into a squat). These used to be difficult and tiring for me. Now I find them quite comfortable and even enjoyable! One good step at a time!

                  • Yeah, that heading got the "Snort Tea All Over Computer" award for the week!

                    Wish I could do Crossfit. No Crossfit anywhere near here.

                    Hoping something comes through for you workwise. For selfish reasons! So we can see more of you around here!

                      • So uhh... Yeah, Sorry for not being around lately. Life has been so damn busy... Here's a quick catchup.

                        Since last summer I have gained 30lbs (gross!), found myself a full time job, and met the woman I plan to marry.

                        So now I'm back here. I was doing extremely well health wise on the cruise ship getting down to 231lbs. Yeah, I hit my 100 off mark and then some. Which is why it's so embarrassing to be back here (264 this morning). Once I got home I hit a bit of a depression, hit some financial issues which lead to shit food choices, and I'm very restricted on kitchen access which leads to half assed meals. But now I've got a wedding to plan for and it's coming up in 4 months. No bullshit, no more excuses. I will be 230 again for the wedding. This is where I need you guys and to be accountable again.

                        So day 1 back-

                        Meal 1: 4 eggs (3 fried in bacon fat, 1 boiled), 4 small slices of bacon (equivalent to 2 regular sized), 8 GF rice crackers (I shouldn't have but I did). 1 scoop greens supplement

                        Meal 2: Leftover Pho

                        Meal 3: 2x Gluten free farmer's sausage, 6 small slices of bacon, 1/2 onion caramelized in duck fat, 2x hard boiled eggs, 1 scoop greens supplement

                        Too small of a breakfast but it's a start. I'd like to do a leptin reset. I'll update with the rest of my food later.

                        • Ecks! So happy to see you're back and have such happy news! Congratulations on all counts.

                          I think a few of us are getting back on track right now, so you'll have lots of company.
