2010-04-28 [jaraden]: its a long story, but the short version is that i was workin and supporting a pregnent ex while tryin to finish my last year, something had to go... there you have it.. it sucks but thats life... can't finish my sheridan degree, and there is literally nowhere in the north-east of england up to that level or standards of illustration..
2010-04-28 [moira hawthorne]: could finish it IF you moved back to canada...
I know this may not be likely... but it is possible... the future is the great unknown...
2010-04-28 [The Dizzy Raven]: That sucks :(
2010-04-29 [jaraden]: i don't think that'll happen until my kids are old enough to make that desision, i would obviously have to have full custody of them by then, but if they wanted to move to canada then i would, but until then i don't plan on being far away from them ever! but your right, one never knows!!
2010-04-29 [The Dizzy Raven]: Aww you're such a good dad ^_^
2010-04-30 [jaraden]: well i wouldn't go that far.. but i'd do anythin fer my kids.. heck, i moved across the ocean for them... which doesn't make me anythin speacial, i reckon any parent should think the same.. am i right?
2010-04-30 [The Dizzy Raven]: yeah, but not many parents are like you. Some could care less about their kids unfortunately. I've met parents like that and heard news stories :( its sad
2010-05-01 [ReineBloodwolf]: hi
2010-05-04 [jaraden]: i hear you there, it is sad to hear people who clearly don't give a damn about their kids!! its the sign of the times... anyhow, i could bang on about the lack of responsibiliti
2010-05-04 [jaraden]: hey shiome, haven't heard from you in a while.. how you been???
2010-05-04 [The Dizzy Raven]: that's good to hear from you, Jaraden ^_^

anyways, can't wait! :D
2010-05-04 [moira hawthorne]: what dragon contest?!?! tell me.. give me link plz!!!
2010-05-05 [jaraden]: even though this has become a random subject change i'll weigh in.. i'm all for dicaplining one's children as the parent sees fit, even though it's not PC i believe in spankin, i was spanked when i was a kid and i know it gives youths the respect for their elders that is lackin these days!!!! now havin said that i deplore any abuse, but then, that is human nature; constantly abusin power... in the end there is no right answer, either coddle a child and have them grow up with no respect what so ever or have a child so wrapped in terror of a beatin that they are scarred for life; those are the two extreems... not very nice, but thats a fact.. me, i take a gentle hand with my two, but if they go too far they get a spankin, and only then, but they know whos boss while at the same time know that i adore them!!!
but there you have it.. havin kids is a life long commitment (spelt wrong) and those who can't handle it should be starelised... simples! ha!
2010-05-05 [moira hawthorne]: would be parents who want to adopt have to go thru/jump loops thru/basically prove their worth... a long list of requirement and checks... but any dumb smuchs can bang their nastys together and become parents... raise a child is likely THE most important job of human society... and yet in is nearly invariable given to the unexiperenced and unqualified!
2010-05-05 [jaraden]: too true!!! here here!
2010-05-05 [The Dizzy Raven]: Agreed! :)
