Mine!

I turned 21 yesterday. No one can pick it. I usually look about seventeen.

Yesterday morning I woke up at 5:30am for no real reason. It’s always been a thing for me to wake up early on a day when something frigging awesome is about to happen. That hasn’t happened in a while, but yesterday, it did. I remember waking up early when I was due to go to a party, or when there […]

Last night I had a blast; I visited The Standard again with Shadow, my trusty camera, and I saw an eclectic lineup of bands:

The Money Go Round The Griswolds Hey Geronimo March of the Real Fly

Having only known the Griswolds from being a supporting act for San Cisco, I wasn’t too sure about this show. I bought a ticket because they were cheap ($13) and because I was already familiar […]

Today is Towel Day, a day when fans of author Douglas Adams and his series The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy carry a towel with them throughout the day as a tribute. The first Towel Day occurred two weeks after Adams’ death in 2001. The tradition may not make sense to anyone who isn’t a fan of the series, but nonetheless, this peculiar commemoration is one that is worth sharing. Above all, I suppose […]

The classic true story of Phineas Gage is an interesting one. Phineas Gage worked in railroad construction and remarkably survived an accident in which a rod was driven through his head.

The past few days I’ve been complaining about Java. I hate it so much. I’ve had problems with the university’s server, and it doesn’t load my pages properly. We have no option but to put our work on the university server; we’re […]

It has been a rather eventful week. Rachel had a shower door fall on her toe, which resulted in her losing a toenail in a traumatic experience, and our discussion earlier today about the importance of protecting the nail bed to allow the nail to grow back properly. Now I have a problem. I didn’t experience something so traumatic, but about two years ago I had accidentally split the toenail of my small […]

It has come to my attention that (dundundunnnn, yes, I do believe we need a drum roll here) you can actually stop WordPress from creating ridiculous thumbnails when you upload an image, thanks to a handy little setting. Of course, I didn’t think at all to Google this hatred I have for WordPress generating thumbnails, and now I realise that from numerous posts on the WordPress.org forums, you can actually just go to […]

It’s been a quick but eventful week and I’ve been so dazed. I finally wrote just over 2,500 words for my part of 5,000 for the group assignment I’ve got. I’m glad I hit that point today. Last night I was up until 4:00am looking at photos from my camera and just surfing the internet (as you do in the wee hours of the morning), and I didn’t wake up until 11:00am when James called […]

Lately I’ve been in need of some new “basics”. I’ll be honest – a lot, if not all – of the clothes I own are on extreme ends of the spectrum. They’re either very dressy and formal – like work jackets, pretty floaty tops, long sleeved chiffon blouses, fancy scarves and the like – or really daggy, like these-could-be-my-pyjamas daggy. Not kidding. One day I was actually rolled out of bed with my Ben Jorgensen […]

May the Fourth be with you, young Padawan. *bows* It’s Star Wars day every 4th of May. Today is no exception.

Hello, I’m Georgie and I’m tired. I also had my graduation ceremony today to receive my Bachelor of Arts in Communication. As I type this sentence mid-yawn as my eyes are shut and watering and my fingers bear a life of their own, I look back on today – eventful.

It began at […]

I’ve made an image uploader with PHP and MySQL. It’s nothing much at the moment, but it’s part of my plan to turn it into a WordPress plugin. I am not quite sure how to get it working in WordPress, but this is what it does so far:

Type in some metadata for the image. Title, caption and so on. It doesn’t include everything WordPress asks for – the idea for this is to […]
