Back Again! But from the South!

Well hello there! Its been several years since I have posted here, but being as I am now far away from all of you, I feel as though writing on this blog might prove useful or at least enjoyable for me. I don't really have much time to write anything out right now as we are about to go to dinner with a nice local family that I have never met before...
Either way, it should be enjoyable and I look forward to telling you all about my fantastic adventures living in the land of Merica (I will be referring to America as "Merica" on a regular basis). This will include the already fantastic experiences I have had at Logan Collage of Chiropractic.

Sleep is for the Eel fishermen

So I finally got some sleep during the last two nights. This is kind of a big deal since I have been sleeping in 3 hours naps twice a day for the last two weeks. This is extremely out of the ordinary for me. When I am at home I can almost literally sleep for 12 hours wake up eat and go back to bed for another 8 hours. It's one of  my many talents. So the fact that I got two nights in a row of normal human sleep is good news.

In other news it looks like things are starting to pick up. I'm not really allowed to go into any detail about what that means. If you read my last post you'd remember that I told you I have been sworn into secrecy. But what I will tell you is that everything is getting a bit better. Yay!

Smaller then you thought?
Both of the pictures in this post are from Google, since I am not allowed to take my own, by searching the term "glass eels." There are tons more if you wanna check them out.

Yesterday I got a "day off". This means I worked a normal work day and got to go into town and eat food and watch a movie, Eel fishing is one of the few jobs where you work on your days off. Boston Pizza has never tasted so good and the movie theater was truly a sight for sore eyes. As of tonight we will be starting our normal fishing grind once again.

This is how we separate the eels from the stuff we don't want.
Throughout working this job I have this one verse that keeps popping into my head and it helps keep me going sometimes. "2 Corinthians 4:16-18 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self[a] is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal."

There is so much more I could tell you about. But alas, I am not allowed. Hope everyone back home is doing well. Miss you all.

As many of you know I'm back in New Brunswick. And its been a week now. Although it kind of feels like its been a month. I've been trying to get back into the swing of things here, which actually never really happens I've learned, but I'm trying none the less.

So far this year has been an okay year here and I have enjoyed my time so far. I mean, as much as one can enjoy waking up at random hours of the night to fish eels out of the water. I would tell you about other things, but alas, I can't. Due to the fact that I have been swore to secrecy(I feel like a spy) and have to keep most things eel related on the down low.

There have been a few changes this year when it come to my job at Brunswick Aquaculture LTD.(Fixed it.) They have finished building the gym. Complete with free weights and a sweet cable machine. Though I think the best part of the new gym is the 80 inch TV and Xbox they got set up in there. Lets just say that most of what goes on in there isn't working out. Though I have had some good workouts.

They built a new attachment for rooming people. It has been inhabited by the guys from Ontario and is rightly called "#OntarioHouse". We even have an Ontario flag hanging in the window. Other then this just being a new place for us to sleep it has some other perks too. Less people staying here which means less noise which means more sleep which means happier Nolan. We have our own TV, Xbox, mini-fridge, and even a toaster over for cooking our snacks, which lately have consisted of pizza pockets, burritos, and hot dogs. hashtag healthy living.

After reading this you probably think that I don't even work while I'm here. Don't worry I do, I'm just really good at hyping up how much fun I have while being here. It's basically hanging out with the guys for 2 months. So there are some good times to be had.

Anyways if you want to know anything else just text me and ask. No for real! If you read this you should text me. Because if I'm not sleeping it can get kinda boring around here. So text me.

Nolan Out!
