Hi Agony,


It's been a while since we last spoke. I just wanted to see how you're all doing, hopefully you've been successful in your many endeavours since we last parted ways. How are all the new changes panning out and what have you all been up to in recent months?


Best wishes,

o/ Teara


Just getting back into the game after some ankle surgery.  No driving for 12 weeks and I'm 3 week into it on Wed.  How have you been?  Anything new?

Hey man it's been a while! Damn, what kind of injury was it?  Only another 9 weeks to go mate, at least you've got an excuse to skip out on doing the shopping or taking the kids to school haha. I've been doing pretty well thanks mate all things considered, currently enjoying the New Zealand summer :). I'm working at the local Casino now as a Croupier, just a job to cover the bills while I train up for the military which I'll look at signing up for within the next year/2 years. 5 years of inactivity has left me with a pretty flacid body haha.

OCD or lesion of the talus, which is a fancy way of saying I damaged my cartilaged.  It the large side of doing arthoscopic surgery, about 2.5*1.5*1cm.  The surgeon said it was from years of abuse, which I've rolled/sprained my right ankle my times during different sports and now racquetball.  I also had some bone spurs, which ended up way worse than the MRI showed.  He said this was my source of constant pain and he found a bone fragment in my ankle just smaller than a penicil eraser.  The OCD was better than expected and he had to do fewer microdrilling, so he's hoping for a quicker/better recovery!


The military is a good option, at least in the U.S.  If you like it you can make a good career out of it, but you can learn some useful skills and money for college.  I wish my little brother would do that, he's slowing doing nothing with his life and just hit 26.  The military will take care of your body and feeling fit is great!  I miss working out.  My muscle is quickly disappearing and being replaced by fat.  Good luck with your plan and early start on fitness, I'm sure you'll do great!

Ouch, that doesn't sound pleasant at all. It's good to hear that they didn't need to resort to more invasive procedures, hopefully that will result in a smoother recovery for you so you can get back into racquetball as soon as possible :). I've been lucky to get away with quite a few injuries without too many complications, I suppose some could arise in the future but so far so good. I was a powerlifter back in my highschool years and managed to set a lot of the school records which apparently still stand (probably more an indication of how unmotivated people are these days when it comes to exercise than some actual accomplishment haha) but after spending a good 4 years living a pretty unhealthy lifestyle I'm practically back to square one haha. I guess it's times like these where you have to remind yourself that it's all about the journey and not necessarily the destination.


A couple of years ago I arrived at a bit of a crossroad where I had to decide where my life was going before it was too late, certain events earlier this year helped to concretize that decision. At least for me personally it was important that I had and have to be 100% committed to it as I think it's not a decision should take lightly. I've always had an interest in the military; both my Grandfathers served, one was a fighter pilot in Guadalcanal during WWII, the other was a platoon leader in the ARVN during the Vietnam War who was trained by Recondo School graduates. After I spent a long time contemplating my options I arrived at the conclusion that if I did not scratch the itch I'd always be left wondering what if. I'm definitely considering studying law post service and specialising in international humanitarian law but that's a long time down the the pipeline yet haha.


Thanks for the well-wishes Ronat, I wish you all the best as well and I look forward to catching up ingame soon hopefully!
