This is how I feel about being back online. Woo-Hoo!
I moved recently and have been without net access for 2 months. 2 months is a long time for someone that is a facebook addict, blogger, and general net addict. The problem is that I had to stealthy get naked ADSL installed without my Grandfather learning about it. He is 93 and has enough problems using the TV and foxtel, let alone be taught how to you the web. Trust me, it was worth screwing around and installing a “phone line” into my room.
Sorry it has taken so long to post anything on my blog.
I recently got myself an iPhone and have been loving it ever since. When they first came out I glanced at them, not really wanting to tempt myself too much because I still had over a year left on my mobile contract at that point. One of my mates had one and was showing me, causing me to want one, but I couldn’t get it.
My contract ended on the 11th of Jan and I got my iPhone on the 11th, lol. It’s totally awesome. I’ve learnt how to type really fast, how to blog on it, how to quickly blog a photo, and most importantly, how to sync my google calander with it directly!!! Anyone that knows me knows that my phone and google calander control my life.
The other good thing is that I have unlimited internet on it, well technically 5GB a month, but I’ve barely reach 1GB. This was awesome because although I didn’t have the net at home, I could still look up information on my phone, access facebook and even IM my friends! Though I wouldn’t consider IMing on an iPhone to be the same, since I can type almost as quickly as I can think on IM.
Clean this blog up
I’m making an effort to clean up this blog a bit. I’ve been slack; created too many useless and redundant topics, posting about crap that isn’t really interesting (“awesome tv show posts”). I’m aim to bring somewhat interesting content. I’m gonna go with quality over quanity.
pew pew pew (me cleaning up my blog)
So expect to see some changes in my blog, lesser topics, some new features (like the new similar posts at the bottom).
The Life and Death of a TB Drive
I recently experiences one of my worst technilogical fears, the death of a harddrive. I had all my TV shows on there, all of my awesome shows and they were gone. I was devestated. Luckily I had forgotten about how I had copied all my stuff to a mate of mine’s TB drive, so I had a copy of 95% of everything. I have managed to copy it back, and actually increase my collection with another mates stuff. Nice.
Top Gear Live
I was fortunate enough to get to go to the Top Gear Live show in Sydney. I enjoyed it, but there were some annoying things. I didn’t appreciate the “live ad’s” that took forever and only seemed to annoy the audience. There is a great review of the live show I went to see (also where I stole these images from).
I’m trying to embrace new experiences and opportunities as they are presented to me. I learnt how to snowboard, enjoy live music and experience festivals last year and I’m going to go skydiving for the first time in a few days.
The only thing I’m worried about is how much money its costing. I am trying, in vain, to save money. I want to save enough money so that I can build up my savings to a decent amount and go to New Zealand with my mates and go snowboarding again. I’m getting photos and a DVD.
Ah, that romantic time of year is here again. I’m not one of those people that dispise valentine’s day, thinking it’s a hallmark creation, but I generally don’t like it because I always come up a bit stumped as to what to do for it.
Anyway, I screwed up a movie date with my girlfriend. I really wanted to go see “Role Models” before it finished showing in the cinemas. This would be counted as “my movie” and in turn I would sit through one of “her movies”. I screwed up, swapped onto a late shift at work by mistake and we couldn’t go. Since we find it hard to see each other, we value any time we can be together. I felt really bad and decided that we would go see “He’s just not that into you” (her movie) gold class on sat. Then I realised it was valentines day and sprung for the whole valentines package (food, drink, chocolates).
