Don't listen to Edgar. He just doesn't want you to get jealous over all the cool stuff you missed out on.

Anyway, welcome back!

WOW.

Until a few days ago 2020 seemed to be one of the worse years of a lot. Now I see old mates coming and asking for news, it's getting better.

I can't trust that you are posting BAF !

Well, yeah, I'm BAFfled ^^

I wish X-G, Neil Roy, Bob, and all the old faces make a little come back.

BAF, We want pictures of you, last time I saw your face you were 15 X-D

He's probably still 15. I don't think people age on the internet. That's a thing, right? πŸ€”

Happy return, BAF. We're all the same, here. :P. Nothing's changed :P

I'm not really sure, at least 5-6 years I'd say. I was around for SpeedHack 2014, not for 2015, and even then in 2014 I hadn't really been around much.

I can't trust that you are posting BAF !

Hah. I'm about 8 months overdue for a haircut. I'll have to dig up a picture that I don't look like a total covid caveman in.

You've got my secret ;D.

My life has changed quite a bit; last time I posted here I probably still lived with my parents. Shortly after that, I moved out on my own in the world, got married, followed a project at work that I'd been working on forever as it spun off as an independent startup, bought a house, turned 30 (what the heck), adopted a puppy, probably some other stuff too. I feel like my only big milestones left now are to have kids, pay taxes a few more times, and die. :P

Trump got re-elected while you were gone. His vice president is a trans-black-native-american-handicapped-dwarf and he has been retroactively given 17 emmy awards. He was gonna go woman too, but turns out women can't lead.

Pretty similar. Got married, bought a house, got a puppy. Kids are supposed to be next. Changed jobs, but that didn't work out, so I'm back to my original job. Cannabis was legalized nationwide in late 2018 so I've been an enthusiast every since. I vape or smoke between 500 and 1500 milligrams per day. :D

And my mental health tanked this year due in part to COVID-19 unknowns, work stress, job changes, and known mental health weaknesses. I realized that I'm on the autism spectrum this year, which is hugely useful because until now I've had no explanations and a poor understanding of my limitations. I experienced a full week of insomnia in Spring (anxiety induced, probably), and that lead to clinical depression. I'm on antidepressants to help manage my mental health and mood, and have been off and on again with alcohol in order for the meds to work. I basically cannot drink alcohol anymore or I go insane. So instead I try to be high as fuck. :D

I still ride.

100% agreed!

Well, that's a cute age ;) Wait until you come dangerous near to the 40s (like me) ;D

I had a great 2020. I'm an autistic person with social phobia, so it's like I was genetically engineered with social distancing in mind.

On top of that I've read tons of great books and watched some really good TV shows this year.

The weather has been a real letdown since November though. This is supposed to be the hottest part of the year and I keep wanting to make daytrips into the local national park to hit the really lovely beaches but it's always raining and cold on my days off, which has been very disappointing.

This is one of my favourite beaches that I want to visit:
