I've been away for a while

Postby Mr. Rogers » Thu Nov 28, 2013 11:42 am

Hey Guys,

I've been away for a while (actually, a couple years). I decided to stop on by and see what's been going on. For people who don't know me: My name is Jim. I live in the Chicago area with my wife. I love writing, reading (biographies, British fantasy lit., theology, philosophy, fiction, adventure), movies (same categories as reading). I've been addicted to Monk, Sherlock, and IT Crowd (only six year late on this one) on TV lately. I've been to Japan once, and El Salvador a couple times.

A lot has happened since I last came here:

1) I started a Master's degree program in Teaching English Language (TESOL) and Intercultural Studies at Wheaton Graduate College in Illinois. I'm planning on teaching in the USA for now and then taking some overseas summer teaching trips this year or next year. I've been having a great time in my program, although it has been super busy.

2) I got married in April. Here's a pic from the wedding:

My wife's name is Aneesa and moved to the USA from Trinidad. She's a makeup artist/actress. We had a small wedding with just family since we have so many obligations right now, but still had fun.

Looking forward to lurking around here again :) Any more questions?

Welcome back to CAA! Hope you enjoy your stay :D

Sorry, I can't think of any questions for you right now, but I'm glad to see another Monk fan around!

I used Monk as a replacement to calm my craving for the next season of Sherlock, but then I ended up liking it.

Welcome back!!!! A very late congrats on your marriage.

I'm not really familiar with Mr. Rogers other than the remix, but I'm curious why did you use that user name?

Welcome back. I don't believe we've met, but it's a beautiful day for a neighbor. Would you be mine?
Also, congrats on the marriage. Like MSP said, your wife is very beautiful.
It's good to see the vets returning to the old roost.
He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? -Micah 6:8 KJV
They have shewed thee, O teen, what is good; and what doth the world require of thee, but to fit in, be wealthy, have good looks, and be rebellious? -Peer Pressure 1:1
