New years eve is upon us!
We are ALL DOOMED!!! :P

I decided to make at least one new years resolution: Loose Weight.

I've already cut down my food input and changed my diet somewhat, but I need to do more exercise like walking. And now I finally have motivation and support to do just that :)

Tonight I get to see GF again *grin*

So to everyone: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

lol @ missleading post! :P

I'm just missing my girl ATM and having trouble NOT thinking about her...

I'm probably not making much sense, but I guess that's my point, because thinking about her is making it hard for me to concentrate on other things *sigh*

At least I am happy... happy and confused :P

Happy Hogswatch

That time of the year has come again, where we all get drunk merry and eat too much :P

My thoughts go out to all my friends (and random readers) in the hope that they have an enjoyable - or at least nice- christmas and a happy, if not content new year.


Current Mood: Cheerful

no time for love...

So much for a chrismas break with an a skeleton crew at work.

We are still behind and still taking normal calls and I am having difficulties seeing my girl :(

I may call in sick tomorrow if today turns into another full day (I only rostered on for half days ffs)!

Anyway, as you can see, I'm now absolutely and totally infatuated with her and I want to spend every spare second that I have with her...

Interesting Times

I think I am now at risk of being emo, what with all the weird emotions and ups and downs I have been having lately...

Oh yeah I passed ALL my UNI units from last semester *yay* and now I have to try and finish my last one next semester...

I really hope I can get finish UNI soon so that I can start concentrating on other more important stuff

I'm also unsure as to whether I am able to do my current job, as windows desktop dupport is really starting to bug me and make my life stressful, which I think is something I should avoid especially considering the fact that I want a UNIX/security career instead...

Things with the female friend are looking better, but aren't absolute (I wish I knew how she felt about me tho).

Anyways, singing off for now...

maor emotions. DRUNK!

Damn, I was on a high for so long and now it all ands in tears...
(story of my life)

I'm a bit drunk so pls excuse the typos and any potential bad mouthing...

My love life is not what I wanted it to be (I was hoping for so much more) and I am a bit emotional atm...

I was supposed to go to a work christmas party this afternoon, but because the prior job was somewhat unresolved and took langer than expected, the rest of the staff at work enjoyed a nice asian lunch (without actually offering me any) AND the fact that I forgot my (personal) mobile phone and decided it wasn't possible to make it to Neerabup within 20 min from applecross I decided that I would prefer to mope for the night (probably not very healthy, but who cares atm, except for me right????...)

anyways.... vodka is my new friend atm....

a date to remember

The cat's out of the bag (no I'm not doing mean things to cats :P).

I went out for a date on sunday night. But I'm starting to think she's not interested (It's still early days and could be wrong... I hope I am). Either that or I fail at courting :(

I was also a bit sad today from a combination of thinking about last night (where I went wrong), my mum's death and being tired.

At least one of my good friends is helping me by being as supportive as possible.

High on Happiness

Yesterday morning was not so nice, but my workmates unintentionally cheered me up and Today I'm high on happiness and I don't ever want to come down from it...

I almost have a permanent smile on my face and I'm way more cheerfull than I've ever been before.

Maybe it's because of the excitement of going to wedge and/or the work christmas party... or something much much nicer... (I'm bieng intentionaly vague again).

$2 to the person that can work out what it is!*

micro holiday

Time for some pre-christmas R&R!

I will be going to Wedge for an overnight trip this weekend (Saturday-Sunday) and as usual, I'm going to be out of contact while I'm there.

Won't be drinking any where near as much as I did last time, but I'm going to take some books and pretty much just relax as long as there isn't too much work to be done on the shack.

Now, I wonder if I will remember to charge, take and use my video camera...

Insomnia strikes again!

Sleepless nights are back! :P
It's strange 'cause it's been ages since this happened to me since last time.

Oh well, I made it through the work day and that just makes me awesome :P

So I finished the last of my nice bottle of red wine I had open and now look forward to a relaxed nights sleep.

My friends want to go do some new years eve thing at the races or something but it's like over $200 for the night and I don't think I have the will to dress up for such an occasion. I kinda want to go, but the price is a bit steep for me.

I'm also hoping to spend new years eve with someone else, but if that doesn't happen I will probably try to go up to Wedge instead...

Sunday, 23 November 2008


Lately I have been very positive and happy, but today I'm feeling a little down. Which I find strange since I was fine last night (I was actually in a really good mood from dinner and a movie with a big group of friends) and today, but I'm slightly depressed (again).

Today, after doing washing and ironing and other stuff around the house, I watched a bunch of shows that I have been saving since just before UNI exams, and I think it's either that, or remembering about my mom's death (or both) that has triggered it.

I hope to blog about something a little nicer next time.

I have a new Job, new (near new anyway) car and a new Phone. The only thing lacking now is a house and GF

But Just when I though everything was going smoothly and according to plan...

The new car decided to leak oilz, but I have new car warranty (as well as dealer warranty) so it should cost me $0

Damn cars. This is going to cost me my drinking sesh on Wednesday night as I have to get up early to drop the car off for (warranty) service. *sigh*

At least I have Saturday night (planned) to have drinks and food over at the Greenwood Hotel :)

aphd3l: This post should reminded me to bring Greenwood Pizza next time I come over...

This entry is more or less a quick message my friends.

Please do not bother trying to call me on the telephone as I currently cannot speak due to a suspected case of Laryngitis. Please contact me by either:

  • MSN
  • email
  • SMS

According to some medical websites it may take up to several weeks for me to get my voice back :(

UPDATE 28/11/2008 @ 15:24
It's taken about a week(?), but my voice has returned, still croaky and hoarse but I can talk at least.

Current Mood: Surprised.

Down With the Sickness

Apart from the song title (which coincidently was played at the Disturbed concert last Friday), I seem to be a sickness (cold) magnet this winter season. Now 2½ cold infections later (the half being the current one), I seems to have gotten a chest infection, says doctor person...

I am now officially SICK of being sick not just because of the actual sickness, but the sleep deprivation that comes with it.... (I miss my sleep *sniff*).

As I stated earlier about the Disturbed concert... it was good. Short. But good. (lack of seating in a concert makes a short one good IMO :S). So, thanks to an unnamed friend, I have picture of 10,000 Fists in all it's glory ^_^

epic food

last night I made the most EPIC dinner that I never want to forget how to make, so I shall reveal all to the world this awesome feed :)

I purchased a single rolled chicken thing (I forget what it's called) that had a herbs and rasher of bacon inside and was in a tomato paste-like base.

That same day I had also done some other vegie shopping so I decided to mod the meal (which is what made it so damn awesome).

So a rough pseudo recipe and how it did it (in step-by-step form):


  • 1 pre-prepared rolled chicken breast/thigh thing
  • 2 Medium-sized carrots
  • 1 medium-sized potato
  • 2 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 small onion
  • 4 whole pieces of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon chopped (dried) basil.

  1. Peel and chop up potato and carrots and par-boil for approximately 10 minutes.
  2. While the vegies are boiling, chop up the onion, tomato and peel garlic.
  3. Prep oven bag and when the boiled vegies are par-boiled mix all ingredients and add into the oven-bag (make sure to follow oven-bag instructions!!!) and place into oven for approximately 35-40 minutes.
  4. Once cooked, cut open oven bag and enjoy! I sure did ^_^

And here is the result, straight from the oven bag (Oven Bags FTW!)!

Partys 'n Stuff

Just about every weekend of mine is made up of a (birthday) party fro at least the next 3 weeks and UNI is starting to become a bit of a drag.

I'm finding myself getting "snowed-in" with assignments and studies again, but hopefully I should pass everything this semester, leaving only one more unit to do next semester.

I got another cold about a week back *raised fist in anger* but I'm nearly back to 100% health.

I've been doing a lot of technical stuff for myself lately as well and generally being my normal non-sociable self...

Friday night at the Disturbed concert was a blast (it rocked soooo hard).

I'm trying to think of an alcoholic mix using the energy drink V, but so far, all I have come up with is Vodka + "V"... any other ideas welcome.

Bad hair day... literally!

Yesterday I shaved my head (hair) with my nicely-cleaned clippers and as I was doing the back part I realised that something was wrong.... I forgot to put the No. 2 attachment on!

Now I have a VERY short back, and short (No. 2) topside, but with a twist (A line that runs up the back, almost to the top (same as back part) !!!

Needless to say, I'm pretty annoyed, but there is little I can do, except shave it again with No. 1 and hope for the stuff-up to grow over (Hrm, looks like I might have to invest in a beanie!).

Family Troubles

One of the family member is mentally ill. Although we (family) have known about it for quite some time, I decided to blog about the issue and the current situation while trying maintaining some anonymity.

The members of my family believe him to be either psychotic or just mentally unstable or something due to post-substance abuse. The reason I bring this up is the fact that I don't know what to do any more...

Previous incidents have cost allot of people money to bail him out (not necessarily out of jail, although I am unaware of any jail time incidents). And his friends and family have pretty much disowned him now, as I will try to explain below.

It has come to the point were he knows how to (smartly) get out of situations like being held in mental institutes (which I must add, he has been in very often), yet he continues to make the same mistakes over and over and recently has begun stealing off of friends and one other family member.

Due the the latest incident where he stole a family friends car (and money) and crashed it (which promoted me to write this post), has brought me to the conclusion that his mental health is deteriorating and that he has become a threat to society. I am also very angry that he did this not only to someone who was trying to help him out, but also to a good friend of mine.

No one trusts him now and (I think) he is at risk of being a homeless person. It seems immoral for us (family) to abandon him to let public services take care of the problem on a temporary reactive basis, but see no other choice...

Current Mood: Troubled.

Battle Damage

Well, due to some idiot that blocked another person (driver) from being able to pull-in off the road caused me to run into the back of a utility and damage my car (see pictures).

So on top of continuing depression, my car is now out of action. I wonder just how much worse my day can be...

Current Mood: Indescribable

Thursday, 22 May 2008


For some reason today (tonight), after I saw a (non-romantic, non-emotion inducing) movie with my friends, and during my drive home I nearly broke down from an outburst of depression that came from no-where. What's even more strange is that another friend (not one from the movie outing) has recently been having panic attacks and/or depression as well. For me, maybe it's the lack of funds combined with excessive UNI stress and/or excessive bottled-up feelings and emotions...

Either way Sake will fix it (albeit temporarily).

Birthday Boredom

Today is my birthday and I'm bored.

I was trying to organise a LAN at one of my friends' house, but it looks like none of them want to attend/host it :(

Perhaps it's another excuse to get drunk, or catchup on some much wanted gaming...

Still Alive

I have neglected the blogs of late, I'll try and fill you's in on some stuff that's happened recently. Well

I been maintaining the tech blog a bit more than this one and for some reason, doing episodic blogging :/

I got my final retention/redundancy pay last week *yay* now I'm thinking of investing my savings (for real this time, honest :P).

I finally caved in and decided to go to my friends place for the LAN, but I didn't get to play rock band this weekend. Apart from that I studied and worked on my assignments (kinda) while watching my brand new Cowboy Beebop Remix :) - Now if only buying DVD's where an investment...

So it's now 10 minutes 'till midnight and I'm still here blogging (how pathetic...) I really should sleep. Happy Easter everyone!

UNI Days Daze

It's been ever so long since I last bloged (no, I havn't given up blogging!).

Well, I'm back at UNI and it's all go. Assignments, labs, lectures and generally lots of mentally-challenging work.
I have fallen behind a little bit but thankfully I have my own personal catchup day every week :)

I'm going through my old sleepless/non-eating period again... fscking human body... *mumble*

Tonight I am going to make a (modified) Thai beef salad again. I hope I can remember how to make it!

Oh and here is a message to all my friends:

I will be having a Celebratory party at my house on (or the day after) my Birthday. Details will be emailed/sms/phoned in the next few weeks.

It's almost over!

Apart from the fact that I had spent way too much money, I didn't want to leave Sydney :P

We saw some animals, a Chinese garden (and dressed up like empirical type), some (bule) mountains, lots of shops and city stuff and saw one of the most awesome live performances ever!

I'm also on my very last shift here at work, and I can't wait for the FIFO to end :P

I am a little stressed about going to UNI though, but that will pass. Now why was I feeling melancholy-like yesterday...

I'm in a better mood, but still a bit depressed.

Busy Busy Busy...

Did I mention that I was busy?

Well not actually that busy from work, but I am so freaking busy with personal stuff. I think I somehow slightly deserve my Sydney trip :P

Here's a short list of stuff I've got to do (in some kind of order I hope) Once I fly back home tonight:

  1. Get video camera (battery) on charge.
  2. Put some washing on for my long weekend trip to Wedge island.
  3. Go to the shops and do a last minute (clothes) shop for Sydney.
  4. Unpack bag from work trip.
  5. Bed (mandatory 8hrs of human rest)
  6. Bring washing in and pack for wedge.
  7. Pick up missed delivery.
  8. Go to Wedge.

Knowing myself all to well, I have either put too much thought into this, or forgotten something...

At least (I hope) the video camera will be available for pre-Sydney tinkering and perhaps I might consider putting some pics on my blog once I come back from there :)

Current Mood: Over-caffeinated? (Stressed!)
