    Busy busy with work and school. :p

    Both of them are such slave drivers. The place I work seems to want to work me every day that I'm not at school making it difficult to do homework but hey, I'm not going to complain about the hours. Just means more money I have to spend on girly things. :p

    At least you have money to spend. My school workload seems to be pushing me into part-time job-like hours, and I'm not even getting anything out of it. [face_plain]

    Ouch. Yeah, I haven't hit 20 hours yet. XD
    But hey, it's better than no money right?
    And yes you are, an education. Look at the bright side. Once you graduate with that degree you'll have a job that pays you something around 50,000-75,000 dollars a year. :D

    What jobs? The job market is crap right now; lots of people a lot more qualified than me can't even find work. :(

    All I can hope for is to go to grad school right now and hope the market rebounds in a few years.

    50,000-75,000 dollars a year right out of college is a fantasy

    Greetings!

    What are you studying Gunny?

    Hello Shira! Of course you can return! You might have to start your training again though- I must consult the Roster :D

    Hello there :) I was wondering what is involved in the Trials. I've read the first couple of posts and the ones about how to join, but can anyone tell me what happens after you join? Many thanks :D

    Well, @Eryndil, this game is based on the Jedi Trials process. You start out as an initiate, do a couple of tasks, gain a master, do 'x' number of tasks that are assigned you (SW-related, of course, and typically simple). This leads you to Knight status, after which you can start learning battle forms, etc.

    If you want a board explanation, it's a quasi-social group where we basically RP as the New Jedi Trials order. That's as easily as I can explain it. :)

    Pretty much here in this thread. We used to participate in some RPG's in the RPF here on the forums, but those have been quiet for some time.

    There hasn't been much RP-ing on here either. I've not put on my Grandmaster mantel in a long time :p

    I can't believe we were on the 3rd page of the forum today? :(

    The weird thing is that in college, Spring Break is between terms, so I shouldn't have any work whatsoever.

    But I happen to have a two-term course right now that is compelling me to do some work over the Break so that I have a leg up on the final essay for next quarter.

    That actually is the better way of doing things. Not wait until the last minute like most college students

    Hello, fellow NJT members!

    Anybody miss me?

    Only 34 pages in this thread?

    :eek:

    What happened to everyone, and all of that wonderful Jedi training?

    @Ree Master, we need to fix the lack of training going on here. Now that I have all of my ducks in a row again, I can do that task you assigned me over a year ago. I've really missed this place.

    [:D]
    (to you all)

    And my padawan is being lazy. :p
    I haven't even talked to him since January. XD
    I wonder if he even gets on the boards anymore. [face_dunno]

    *stumbles to the large, omniou NJT doors and bangs on them with his fists*

    Yes, you may.

    If you are interested in joining the NJT, all you need to do is write up a paragraph or two about why you wish to join the New Jedi Trials. This will be your initiation task.

    Thank you, Master Gunny.

    I understand the ways of the Force, but I wish to learn about it. I feel the presence of the Force, but I wish to control it. I breathe the Force, but I want to live it. In a time where there is darkness, there must be light, and I want to be part of that light that can illuminate not just a few people, but whole planets and star systems given time.

    I pledge my dedication, devotion and life to serve the way of the New Jedi Trails and repel the advance of the Sith amongst the community and our fellow brothers and sisters. That is the way of the Jedi, and that is why I give you my word that I am ready to begin.


    *bows head*

    Yes hello I'm here!

    Great news Joy I can't wait to see it.

    Obi-Wan-Gelderd you are most welcome to the Trials. Well done for completing the initiation task. While I find a Master for you (which will be difficult during these troubled times) feel free to hang out here in the thread. In addition, complete the following task:

    Write two-four paragraphs about Jedi Master Yoda with a brief history of his life and his most significant contributions to the Jedi Order. You have one week to complete this task.

    Good luck, and may the force be with you!
