Life and things

There have been a lot of things going on recently. Most of them have been ‘dsjdkhiuhasdajkh DOOM’ but there have also been a few good things too.

I have had ear trouble for the last five months. It started as an ear infection, then turned into something that the last four doctors don’t know what it is (yay). So I have to wait until November to see a specialist. At least twice a month if gets so much pressure/throbbing and builds up with fluid and really hurts. After a while it kind of leaks out. Ew.

My mum went on holiday for two weeks so I had some time to myself. I did miss her, so it was nice to see her when she got back.

My dear cat Tigger who was around 17 passed away. She got very ill and was at the vet for a week. It was first thought she had an infection, but it looks more likely it was some form of bowel cancer. The vet suggested we have her put down, but we couldn’t do it. I wish we had of done that now, because her death was very hard. :(

My dads bird Flapper (who was around 5) also passed away. I am not sure what happened, but he suddenly got very quiet. We brought him inside the day before he died, I checked on him a lot. But he passed away while I was not with him (I don’t like anything to be alone if it is going to pass) so that was sad.

I have made some progress on my ‘mental health battle’. I was able to speak with a health professional who actually listened and seemed to care. So I have a start, in hopefully a good direction.

Kate sent me some lovely gifts, a cute owl friend and a lovely candle that smells really nice. The card was also wonderful! (Image of these under the cut.) THANK YOU!

Blog Matter

Good news, I have finally opened my project I have been working on, Blog Matter. If you’re a blogger and are looking to gain a little bit more exposure or discover new blogs, Blog Matter can hopefully help you. What does the site do exactly? The main concept of the website is that it is a comment exchange. You sign up and once a week receive an email with blogs to comment as well as bloggers that will comment on your website. I was an active member of similar concepts like this around 2006 and was disappointed that nothing like it popped up again (or that I could find anyway).

I couldn’t have created the website by myself, so I have to thank Claire, Nicole and Tess for being so awesome. :D A special mention should also be given to Alice, Claire, Dismey, Evelyn, Kalliste, Kate, Liz, Nicole and Silver who helped pick the name of the website. Thank you!

Brain Slime

Study Sleeping

The past week (all my life) my brain has been anywhere but in my body, especially my head (refer to the #mybrainhasmeltedoutofmyear tweet). I wish it would not choose the moments where I have to focus to run away on me, without even leaving a note. :0 I can’t blame it for everything I know, at least 30% of the problems for it not being there are my fault. Giving it to much to think about, not giving it enough, not feeding it, not letting it sleep for long enough, letting it sleep for too long. I am a bad brain owner. I am sorry brain… most of the time, but in the end if I am not sorry I pay for it, don’t I?

I currently have to focus on:

  • Assignment 2 for NET102, Due Monday 24 Jan
  • Assignment 2 for WEB101, Due Friday 28 Jan
  • Renovating my room, now have a major mess and no bed – so soon as possible
  • Work on Bubble (some major stuff, shh), Soon as possible
  • Preparation for Poppy coming home, 5 or 10 Feb-ish
  • INXS/Train Concert, Tuesday 25 Jan

There seems a million more things when what I actually have to do and I am trying very hard to focus and put everything into perspective and ORDER. The assignments are my main issue right now and it is my fault I left them too long. It was one of those ‘hey I have a week, I have so much time, yay’ that turned into ‘OMG WHAT A FEW DAYS WHY YOU DO THIS’ situations. o_0 I did get my results from assignment one in both net102 and web101. Heh, I am not exactly pleased with my result, but at least from the comments I can work on improving. 60% for net102 and 53% for web101. Not so great. :x_x

So I am wasting more time blogging instead of working on my thesis statement for the essay? :l

Also, happy birthday Kate and you can also socially stalk me via up.nu!


Monday I was almost bitten by a brown snake, that freaked me out a lot and I hope to never encounter a snake again any time soon! *shivers* I was walking out of the driveway to help my grandfather when he came home from dialysis when I almost walked on a big brown snake. I froze (thankfully) the snake started to go down a whole that was right near it, then came up again and started twisting it’s head, going to strike me (arrrrrh :0 ) I started to back away very slowly, while my heart was beating 200 times a minute. The snake began to move, but not towards me (oh boy) and slithered the other way, the sound of it moving and seeing how long it was made me feel sick, especially knowing how close I came to being bitten. I rushed inside and began shaking, I just couldn’t stop I was so traumatized by the whole event. I eventually felt calmer after probably four hours and was thankful it didn’t end badly!

Tuesday the man called (a man to do with making sure I can baby sit for the little girl I am going to, I have to have a police check, etc) to say he would be out the next day. So, it was MAD cleaning time, because obviously everything has to be child proofed and you don’t want them to think your house is a complete mess all the time. It took me and Mum around ten hours to clean the whole house and it is spotless. By 6am I was pretty much out of it. :x_x

Wednesday, he arrived and we talked and sign the papers. He is really nice and explained various things to us. I am actually looking forward to looking after this gorgeous little girl, and that could be some time next week once I have passed all the checks, because I have nothing to hide. My school work also arrived and I am excited to get into this, I have decided that I will begin the work on Monday and spend the remainder of this week getting finished all the online responsibilities I have (a few things on Bubble, fanlistings and a theme for Cupkate 3_3 ).

Lastly, I feel the need to own a Devil Tail on Gaia. 35 million? wow, if I sell some things I may just have enough. *fingers crossed* Although, I don’t think I can get rid of any prized items like the OMG, Horns, AFK and those because I was so absolutely thrilled to have them. If I am patient I will get there eventually. *nod*

There are no more results.
