    What are you eating right now?

    Lamb and Vegetables. I only eat lamb once every couple years. If I didn't know this was lamb, I'd assume its beef. Which I also don't eat often aside at work.

    Peeves in everyday life...

    People who constantly post "Live" on social media. I don't see the point of it. This wasn't a problem until a bunch of my coworkers added me and then I often or repeatedly got notifications that they were live. I turned the notifications off yet see it on my newsfeed. I don't see what's so important about them vlogging that their kids are at the dentist or they are getting wasted having drunken conversations. Most of this stuff, I keep to myself or post one picture if it's newsworthy. The only reason why I still have social media is so pretty much related to work-related where I take shifts if I got nothing to do. Also, some memes. But why does everything need to be documented to the entire world? Aside from some family and some friends actually watching the damn thing, what's the point of posting it live? If you want to share it to a couple people, Skype them or record it and send it to them privately. The people on your friends' list don't drop what they are doing to watch these things, especially if you are posting multiple live sessions in a short amount of time.

    General FY Moments

    Finished school at 3:30 today instead of 5:30. This might be the only time I get to go home early for the semester as I finish classes between 17:20 and 19:30.

    CTrain - U2 cars Retirement Watch

    One more decommissioned car sits on the B/O tracks along with 2035 and 2049. From the previous postings, I assume it's 2029.

    Edmonton Trolleys

    I dug through some old photos from a visit in 2014 and found that it was one of the units stored at Centennial.

    What are you eating right now?

    Chickpea salad with chicken shawarma and probably an orange-vodka to wash it all down.

    Christmas Loot 2018 What did you get?

    Never asked for anything. If I need something, I'll buy it myself. Also, my family is facing a recession so I thought it wouldn't be fair to ask for anything. My father still pays for some of my bills, that's good enough for me when it comes to "gifts"

    Transit Moments of 2018

    Photo of 2018: A Cold Lake Transit MCI Classic Arriving at the Cold Lake Marina. These are former Calgary Transit Units which were bought in 2015 to start up a transit system. The system recently acquired two Nova Buses and two MCI Classics will be retained as backup units. I didn't photograph many other transit systems as I was more into planespotting. But I plan to resume transit fanning as I lost interest in plane spotting. Vehicle of 2018: ETS NFI XD40s - Finally ETS units with Air Conditioning! Event of 2018: Trolleybuses Turning 70 Years of Operations in Vancouver. Disliked Move of 2018 by a Transit System: Calgary's New Route Changes which came to effect in November 2018. Transit WTF Moment of 2018: N/A Transit Agency of 2018: CMBC / Translink Charter of 2018: TRAMS - Brill Trolleybus #2416 Night Charter!

    Christmas Loot 2018 What did you get?

    Only got one gift this Christmas. Saw a friend who I only see a couple times a year. He gave me a card with $20 cash in it cause he said he didn't know if I like Starbucks, Tim Hortons or McDonalds (Even though I am affiliated with the company). Well, it was a nice gift. Apparently, the gift I gave him was the only gift he received for Christmas as well.

    General FY Moments

    Thanks. I finished the semester with a 76 average which is the highest I ever achieved yet. I was never good at school aside flight school as it's hands on experience. I plan to do better next semester. Taking a bunch of History courses in January which seems to be where my interests are outside of Flying.
