Big Months are Big

mood: accomplished accomplished

Hello LJ land!
The last few months have been absolutely insanely busy with University, Work, Money etc etc... all been very hectic. On the bright side, all of the insane rush is over and almost all the pressure has disappeared for now! So long as I get at least a credit on the other two exams that haven't been marked yet *crosses fingers*

So far I have gotten a HD and a D so I'm fairly confident I should pass the others but wish me luck, I find out latest by 6th of december if I am going to graduate or not :P
Apart from all that uni stuff I have also been having issues with work recently, well... was :P basically I had applied for a new job due to issues at work and had just had my last interview, only to find out that my boss had told the CEO of my current work that I was applying for a new job... sooo after the interview I kinda had to have a big meeting with the CEO which I was scared of, only to find out that they had an insane counter offer and would agree to solve all the issues I had O.O I was NOT expecting that... I was pretty much ready to hand in my letter of resignation but then they were basically saying, here's a big raise and we will fix everything that you had issues with xD WOOOOOOOOOO!

So now I am staying on with my current job and things are going awesomely! ^_^ less stress from uni, more time to sort my holiday out and such :3 ooh speaking of which!
I have planned a 5 week holiday in January / Feb to head to San Jose for the FC convention then to San Fran and maybe California for a few days each before heading back over to New Zealand for a 13day Contiki tour! :D I don't know much about these but I have noone else to go with so thought it might be a good idea :P anyone else been on one before? (If so, lemme know how it went pwease? :D) Then I'm hanging around in Auckland for a few days after that before heading back for work again heheh :P

Oooh and I'm also heading over to perth for a week to visit mother dearest ^_^ haven't seen her in sooo long and hopefully she wont cry so much that she can't make it to the airport for another 2 hours again xP

What else.... oooohh I am planning a big birthday party for Saturday the 16th of January so if you want to come please lemme know on MSN or some such, though it is an invite only party so don't just go bringing along people :P just lemme know if you know someone who wants to come as well :)

The Party will have a big BBQ around lunch followed by either Pizza or another big BBQ for dinner with free alcomahol for the night. The party might progress to the clubs at some point but for the majority it will be held at my house again seeing as though I don't have the budget to hire out a place :P MORE DETAILS TO COME! :D oh and I will probably work on some actual printed invites and such as well hehehe :P

That's all for now! Time to get a new chair! :D

Just enough time to go get some food and then off to goto my first graphics programming lab <3 a subject I've wanted to do for ages!
We get to make a 3d game ^_^ sooo excited for that this semester!
Everything gets put into motion next week so I shall have to put in another update then as well, so many things have been happening! Got offered to move in with a friend down near the valley right above a Coles with aircon, near everything and a HUGE room with a balcony! and he said he'd be willing to let me have it for $100 a week.. only drawback is internet >.> and I really like the place I'm in at the moment.. :P no rush anyway!

Food times!

Random Update

mood: awake awake

Well here's a short update for me, and no I'm not dead :P!
Been back at uni since Monday now, straight away I already have a 10 page report due by Friday ;.; so not cool :P

I found this sign in a shop window one night and could not stop laughing.. all the other signs were fine but obviously someone got bored when they got to this one xD

Apart from that randomness I have been going out for motorcycle rides more often these days with Tyresk and recently Al which has been awesome to actually get out and have a look around the mountains and now I can say I have seen the dam finally :P

A few nice camping areas down there I wouldn't mind going to try out either sometime, maybe the next mid semester break :)
Also have met some really awesome people over the last few months including Spaz (Super cute), Tiggs, Severin, Benji, Jamie and some others as well :P so it has been really good to meet some new people :D

Kind of scared of things to come this semester though at uni... I can already see almost three times my normal workload coming >.>; but we shall see how it goes.. might end up being a breeze! xP *hopes so*

oooh also I have been doing weekly exercises and such for a while now :D been feeling really good about myself actually :3 just need to keep it up for the rest of the year and things should be fine :D! and I also have been getting back into firetwirling with my double staffs so hopefully I will make a few new vids and such soon as well :)

Ciaowow for now!

Uni Over!

mood: tired tired
music: A bouncy one! :P

Another year down and only one to go! WEEEEWT!
Got the exact same marks as last semester which is a bit scary, but they're good marks so I am not complaining at all :) means I get some more shiny awards <3
So many things to do next year and I plan to actually do every one of them as well :3 including going over to Perth to visit my mum, love her to bits ;.;

Apart from uni stuff I am working on my light up skates, a new shopping cart website for Kiba and keeping on track with my exercise routine thing. Also am going to be putting together a nice big birthday party for myself but more news on that later ^.^
I would write more about what's been going on lately but I have work now so just thought I'd write a quick update about the uni thing :)

Ok these past weeks have been extremely full with uni stuff! :o had 7 assignments at one stage but now have it down to 4 which was actually a lot of work to do :P
The next two are due Sunday and then two the following weekend so no skating for me this weekend due to project meetings etc :( and I was really looking forward to getting new wheels as well! Oh well next week it shall be then :P

On the plus side next year with uni is looking pretty good so far, my boss went to a university meeting that was held and has found out that he can enrol me as a Industry Affiliates Program member and all I have to do is do some extra work at my current workplace and it will get credited towards my degree instead of having to do a major project!
This is a winwin for me if my CEO agrees to paying the extra money for me :D also means I get some awesome industry experience in actual programming for once!
Also if anyone needs a job and is proficient in Java, JSP, XHTML and CSS etc (general web stuff) then let me know because I can get you an interview! :P

We also won a free work lunch from nova yesterday which was a tonne of wraps / sandwiches and coke! So now our work has enough free coke to last around a month! Wewt <3

On other news I got a nail in my tyre the other day and took it in to get plugged up, but it turned out the tyre had been internally damaged so I had to buy a whole new one :( damn they're expensive little buggers! Apart from that my bike has been going SOOOOO smoothly <3 not a single hitch at all which is great for a change from my zeal :P

Now time for work! More updates to come :P

New News!

Sep. 21st, 2008 | 06:37 pm
mood: calm calm

Ok so here is another one of my updates :P First of all I have had a pretty awesome couple of weeks! I have been looking around at new bikes, organising the selling and repair of my old one, getting out more and just going for rides to new sights so now I want a camera to take photos xD
I have been skating a lot around south bank along the river and wow it lights up well at night.. such a pretty city up close :3
Sort of been sitting a lot of things out lately and taking a nice little break from things and just relaxing while the uni work is not so full on, although that will change next weekend with more essays due :P
I love my new house mates and they are all super awesome ^.^ awesome room, great location and tonnes of stuff to do around here including a martial arts centre just down the road which I might take a look at :3
ooh yer and about my bike.. I GOT A NEW ONE :D a Suzuki GSR600 http://s122.photobucket.com/albums/o267/FoxofFire/New%20Bike/ soooo sexy..
Me, Tyresk, Iscran, Stephen and Electra went for a ride down to the gold coast today and are thinking of getting a little group going since Jet is also looking at getting a bike rather soon :3 Had an awesome time and am looking forward to doing it again soon :)
Work wants me to go full time because we are starting to get a development team together but they are not willing to pay for my course and I am not willing to loose my scholarship so I am staying part time for now unless they give me some sort of decent offer.
Uni is going well :) didn't do the best in a few assignments but it was still well over a pass so I guess I should be happy :P been writing some very intense programs lately like a go-solver which can get through 9.8 million board combinations every minute :D </nerd>
Have been cooking a lot more after cleaning up the house a bit so I can actually have a bench to prepare the meal on, which helps :P I am sooo not used to cooking for one person so I usually have enough for 3 nights xD
Big storm is rolling in at the moment :3 I love storms so much.. makes me remember a lot of good times and is just relaxing all around :P in fact I shall leave you all now and go watch it roll in ^.^
More updates to come! :D

mood: tired tired

Ok yes people I have been offline from msn etc but I have had a hell of a lot of uni work to do and realised it's best for me not to sign on msn unless I need to :3
That's the first bit done :P Now onto the second! My bloody bike >.< GRRRR! I went and got it fixed from the last problem (turns out the choke cable just needed to be fixed / oiled) and now a week later.. exactly a week later.. I go on the on ramp for the motorway and it dies as if I have the clutch pulled in and keeps stuttering a lot.
Pulled it over checked it all out started again and basically just floored it and changed into top gear asap to be able to get it home in one piece safely and eventually made it home with similar problems including the fact it kept feeling like I was turning the throttle on / off constantly xD made things jolty :P
So now I have to drop it in again on Monday to get it fixed, then I have decided to get it road worthied, get my open bike license unrestricted then sell the old one and buy a new one :D
Not such good news as I don't really have the time to do this at the moment but I shall have to make some :P

So now onto uni :3 super busy and crazy to put it the least.. the past semesters have been very easy but this one seems to be piling on the work a lot quicker then the previous ones and the work is much more complex / time consuming and all due on the same damn days! :P
I love uni at the moment though because I am interested in every single subject I am doing this semester so am trying to give it 100%. Apart from that all is going well.

Tonight I went to Riverfire for the first time ever! it was freekin awesome! I got there basically at 3 minutes to 7 (started at 7) and managed to squeeze myself basically down to the front row! I was so very excited! Awesome effects, loud music, fireballs and such and firework waterfalls... all so very awesome.. =d (http://s122.photobucket.com/albums/o267/FoxofFire/RiverFire/ is the photos I took on my phone btw)

Oh and I am recovering from a flu which has had me very crazy as of late, feeling faint, congested, couldn't stand up without worrying whether I'd be able to hold myself up etc :P but it is a lot better now :D I'm very glad it didn't get worse like the first time I was in Sydney with Cameron (worst cold ever)

Oh I almost forgot! I have a new place! :P Wow it has been a while since I updated this thing yet again.. Awesome location, cheap rent, nice people, decent room, gas stove <3 and such ^.^ so all pretty good for now :3 living 3km from the city has it's major advantages like the ability to go get cheap Chinese for dinner hehehehehe ^.^
Btw people who ignore me when I know they read what I directly say to them pisses me off >.< and that is all :D
