About me. Well, I COULD lie and make things interesting, or I COULD tell you the truth and let you decide, but i'd rather you just form your own opinions.

The passing of a great man

Well my exams are over, and along with it go the cares I had when I was under obligation to study. As you might have guessed, it wasn't much. I surprisingly did not have to sit for this exam alone, as a fellow student from my class also had to take the alternative exam. It was a relatively easy paper, and I got it over and done with well within the time limit, packed up and went to work early so I could get out and watch Superman Returns.

About an hour into work my sister informs me that my grandfather passed away in his sleep last night, around 3am. He was a great man and will be sorely missed. I'm still a little numb from the news. I'm waiting for the pin to drop, waiting for the rumble of thunder after a brilliant flash of lightning. And while I sit here writing this all I can think of is the fact that words alone will never do this man any justice. People say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. He taught me a lot of lessons I haven't forgotten.

Maybe it's time I start walking in the shadow of his footsteps.

End of the line

Here comes the end of my semester! By noon tomorrow i'd be done with yet another semester and moving onto the next. But first, i'll have to get through my chiropractor appointment, dodge the exam and survive my shift at work. Then my semester will truly be complete and I can celebrate by watching Superman and daydreaming about my beloved who's still in Queensland. Bleh. I'd much prefer her to be with me. Beggars can't be choosers they say. I hate it when they're right.

Flight of fancy

In a rather quick turn of events today, I have decided to get myself flight tickets to visit my beloved in Brisbane. I leave tomorrow evening, and will return on Teusday. First things first though, before I can get on that plane i've got an exam to take care off. I feel relatively confident about it, but everyone knows that exams can be notoriously tricky and I have a sneaking suspicion that this might be one of those. We'll see. After the exam i'll have to rush straight to the chiropractor, then pack and fly my eager self over to the Gold Coast. It will be good for me to meet her friends and family. See where she grew up, where she came from, all that jazz.

Yes, i'm seeing a chiropractor. My spine is so screwed up, it makes Quasimodo look like Kenneth freaking Branagh. In other words, it's not good. Hopefully my sessions with the chiro will set me straight, literally. Alright, by the looks of it i've got a long day ahead of me tomorrow so I better catch some z's. I'm out.

Another day, another chapter

Well well, it looks like i've been slacking again. I suppose slacking would be an understatement but I don't hear you complaining (or anyone else for that matter) so it doesn't make a difference. To be honest, the past 6 months have been a bit of a blur. You know the kind - it's like driving too fast while you're tipsy and the lines disappear. The kind where the dashboard segues into the road and you can't quite remember where you've been or where you are. Seeing as to how 6 months is more ground than i'm willing to cover and i'm fuzzy on the details anyway, i'll just give a quick rundown of current events. They are, in no particular order, listed below :

- I'm still working at the big GW
- I'm just past a week into what's shaping up to be a very interesting relationship
- I have not moved and am still living in my lovely hobbit hole
- My older sister is pregnant
- I'm awaiting on my application to take a second degree in Mobile Computing
- My final exams loom menacingly over the coming days

I've probably missed about 50 other things but I suppose i'll be addressing them all in the days to come. For now, I bid you adieu.
