After today, and a lot of time spent trying to understand it, I can now write/understand binary!

I did use a converter for that though. I just spent hours converting binary, COME ON.

In other news, I have successfully completed the Official Sir Nicholas Grear 2009 Godfather Marathon. I mark that down as a fairly significant accomplishment, at least in my movie viewing life.

Best slippery dip ever?

Yeah, we call them slippery dips here…Tehehe. Quit laughing at me…

When I get to Warwick Avenue…

Currently listening to: The Lawrence Arms – Drunk Mouth Kitchen Smile

Title irrelevant to the topic at hand, but relevant to other…things.

Tomorrow is my first day of university/TAFE. It is so embarrassing to be a TAFE student, I hate it. I mean, there really isn’t anything wrong with TAFE, it just has such a bad reputation. High school drop outs, derros, people wanting to file nails as a career, dead babies in bins.

At 10.30am I have orientation, and then my first class (Create a Simple Mark Up Language Document to Specification) at 12.00pm until 2.00pm.

Here are my classes for Semester 1:


12.00 – 2.00     Create a Simple Mark Up Language Document to Specification


4.00 – 6.00     Automate Processes


4.30 – 8.30     Communication for Information Systems and Technology


9.00 – 12.00    Develop and Present a Feasibility Report

                            Determine and Confirm Client Business Expectations and Needs

4.00 – 6.00     Install and Manage Network Protocols

                          Connect Internal Hardware Components


9.00 – 12.00     Build a Graphical User Interface

                             Apply Introductory Programming Skills in Another Language

2.00 – 5.00     Apply Mathematical Techniques for Software Development



So tomorrow, it begins. Hopefully I’ll have time to do…um…anything else. I’m working every alternate Saturday night (4.00 – 9.00) to replace Fen Fen I think, or perhaps Leah, and next weekend I am working both Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. So that will leave no time for myself. Also it takes about an hour to get in/out of the city by train, so this will all add up. I’m going to die.

I need to post here more. When I was away, I wrote down everything I did each day in bed at night. A journal, or a Captain’s Log, if you will (I sure will). It’s just a matter of getting around and writing it all up, which I guarantee will take quite a while. I started writing it all out by hand on the first day, I wrote down the plane trip, which took about 30 minutes and I wrote about 5 pages. This was before we even landed in Sydney. So the rest is in dot point form, about 3 or 4 pages for each day, of dot points. Yes, I’m telling you, it will take a while (and a lot of patience and effort) to type it all up and make it make sense. 

Regardless, over this period (haha…period…) I need to make sure I can collect my stupid thoughts and ramblings here. Because people read it, they obviously have no lives, and thus I must keep them entertained. And me, too.

I hate Vawemtime’s Day. Bitter. Jealous. Lonely…ah papapishu.

Ever since this Katy Perry person jumped on the scene, I’ve thought ‘hey, she looks exactly like Zooey Deschanel, but Zooey Deschanel is better’. Apparently I’m not the only person who thinks this.

If You Really Want To Hear About It

It’s been a long time. Too long of a time. I have just got my laptop back, I returned from Melbourne a week ago and I have much to blabber about…
