Sometimes I wish that more Australians celebrated Halloween. You don’t get much more than the one kid out of nine hundred students in a high school wearing a black cape and a ghost mask, or about one kid every five years knocking on your door asking for candy, or the odd Halloween party – if people can be bothered. It’s not celebrated nationally, and I haven’t minded that the rest of the world celebrates it […]

I’m so over uni. I am sooooo over it. Two weeks left, which means under 20 hours of classes left, and probably many hours of touching up assignments and doing work outside of class, and then – and then – I am done with my Bachelor’s degree. And hopefully I pass. I mean, I was selected to do the Honours program (which I refused because I wanted to risk my backside and study a higher […]
The album The Awakening by James Morrison is his third studio album, released on the 26th September 2011. The artist describes the album as much like a “real” first album; his two previous albums having been like “practice shots”. I chose to write this review as I’m a fan of James Morrison’s music and have been in much anticipation for this album, so I’d like to share my thoughts.
Overall, The Awakening is a […]
Today I walked all the way to Camperdown again. It’s about three towns away from university, and I needed to get some photo paper. It was $160 for 50 sheets. Which amounts to about $3 per sheet. Thinking about this… it is black/white chemistry paper after all, so it’s “special”. I still think it’s funny how my mum keeps asking me if I can use the photo paper we have at home. I have to […]
Today I had a presentation with my group – this for the Riding for the Disabled organisation that we’re volunteering for. I, personally, was not prepared for the presentation, and had a few troubles opening up the website mockup that I did, but thankfully we had a screenshot and I still have the files uploaded to the university repository. I actually yakked on for about five minutes about the parts that I did for the […]
One of these days I am going to write a post on my blog and it will be entirely my full stream of consciousness. It is going to be horrible, much like writing a post unedited and not proofread, but I think that I should do at least one of those in my lifetime as it will be rather amusing.
I have nearly finished my group assignment that’s due Monday; I still don’t understand why […]
There are many things I believe in: people, myself, karma, love, the Doctor, Zaphod Beeblebrox, the square root of pi – but if there’s one thing I don’t believe in, it’s fate. I believe that sometimes two people are “good for each other” or “should belong together” but I never believe that they are the only people ever meant for each other ever. I don’t believe that, for instance – one person should and always, […]
In Doctor Who (the only show I bother to watch right now, though that’s changing because I’m going to make an effort to watch Futurama and Fringe as per James’s suggestion/demanding 😆), the notion of forgetting and the notion of memories and such memories being lost or nonexistent in parallel worlds, is explored or used as a plot line. One quote from the Doctor is that “nothing is ever forgotten”.
I began to ponder this […]
Please take part in my “I Love” Project and write a blog post about what you love. ♥ I would love to see more of what you have to write so if you are out of blogging ideas, take part in this project and write about what you love. 🙂
Yesterday I was on my way to university, and I was carrying my bag, my camera bag, my tripod, and holding my train ticket and […]
So there was actually a second part to my little philosophical blog post from two days ago, but I have decided to leave that for another time. I know there are some people who subscribe to my blog and that in itself is amazing. I’m sure I have lurking readers, much more than my small amount of comments reflect.
Today was a rather uneventful day at work, but I can see that I have […]
