Archives for Month: August 2010

I’d like to bring your attention to TheWildernessDowntown.com, which James linked me to earlier today. The band Arcade Fire recently released a new album and for one of their songs, We Used To Wait, and the website features an interactive video for the song. It was designed in conjunction with Google Chrome, which makes use of Google Maps and Google Street View – not to mention, HTML5 technology.

It is really amazing. For […]

I didn’t have such a great day after having a fight with my mum. It makes me upset to fight with people. Sometimes there’s no point in fighting — but the reality is that people fight. People, especially in relationships, will fight. You will disagree and argue and sometimes there’s nothing you can do about it.

When I was younger, my dad got a little angry at me and that resulted in my mum […]

Fuck yes; excuse my use of profanity in the first word of this post. 😧 The past layout was up for nearly three months which was a huge record for me. I used to change layouts very often but this new layout is only the fifth one I’ve had this year.

From my previous post I guess you can see what my little “project” was! This layout. It’s ridiculously love-themed. Since Heartdrops’ second […]

I didn’t take my laptop to university yesterday. I figured it would be a lot less strain on my back. I missed my laptop while I was out, but I felt good because I wasn’t mindlessly typing in class, and I was writing instead. I still got a wee bit bored in class but I wrote out some poems. 🙂

I also felt good because it gave my laptop a much needed break. Lately […]

Ugh, hung government. I don’t really care for politics, to be honest. Yesterday, though, a moment to be remembered: I voted for the first time. I know, I mentioned this earlier, knowing that my vote very well does count, but the bottom line is that I don’t think it makes much of a difference. I voted for the Greens, and before you snap at me and tell me I should have voted proper, I actually […]

There’s a good thing about having loose change in coins: it’s loose. You have money that you can do a lot of things with, despite how small the value of the money may be. Coins are great; you can toss a couple to the buskers in the street, realise you have just enough for a snack wrap at McDonald’s, or a small bag of candy at the convenience store, or even cheap $1 coffees at […]

Sometimes I wish I had more time to do stuff. What do I mean by “stuff”? I don’t exactly know.

Our class was proposed a challenge by our tutor to not use the internet and computer for 24 hours. I thought this was ridiculous. Firstly, I do need the internet to do some research and to get readings for class. I know a day isn’t much, but this is coming from someone who’s very […]

I’ll be honest… when I got into blogging I had no idea that I would get a lot of comments every day. I didn’t have any idea of how huge this “blogging world” really was, or how many different people I would actually meet and get the chance to talk to. I’ve become really close to some, and when we share the same interests in blogging, it makes me smile.

Yes, it’s been a […]

I just wanted to plug Sebastian’s blog. He opened it not too long ago, so welcome him to the blogging world. 😛

Also, my host Kya has notified me that there will be a server change on Sunday, as we are upgrading to a better server. There is some downtime to be expected as well.

Fin (my laptop) nearly died yesterday. I was sitting with James in the lounge at university before […]

Curiosity killed the cat.

Sometimes.

Today, my classmates and I were gathered around our lecture room waiting for the opportunity to enter. We were having a chat in our little groups, and soon enough, we all began to file in slowly and take our seats.

At the front of the room, there was a chair. A little out of place, I might add. On the chair was a conspicuous white box with […]
