I just turned 24 a couple of days ago.
Just reread a bunch of my old blog posts and there was a post commemorating my 15th birthday. It's funny to read this old journal and see what I was like - some real teenage angst back there but some of the stuff that I posted about 9 years ago is still important to me (I posted a lot about Daria 9 years ago and I just contributed to a Daria fanzine a couple weeks ago).
Also I really don't want to see this forum die so here's some content.
With a cool letter from Sal himself, and insulated with some US newspaper which was pretty cool. :) I'll definitely be keeping them for a while, I mean years ago when I first discovered Sals I never though I'd ever be receiving a letter from him in years to come, it was just really cool and nice, thanks man.
None of my friends were in the two classes I had, but my philosophy teacher likes the Pixies, and noticed I do because I was wearing a Pixies shirt which is very cool; and the English teacher talked to us like we were disabled because she teaches VCAL as well (the scum of the school) and I really didn't like her - she was saying she liked everything in the world and heaps of stuff and when she mentioned what she liked it was what all women of her age like.
Hopefully Tuesday is better (when we actually start class, because we started on Friday and Monday is "Induction day", who knows what today was?).
Merry Christmas (belated), I had fun in my little break if any of you cared to notice I was gone; holidays are about half way done but I'm having a great time, even though I've got hardly any money (really need to get a job, applied for a few places but haven't heard back).
I was viewing a post by Yoko and suddenly in a flash of white light she changed in a DM, and her pip flashed and said "Promotions forthcoming!" I think clicked back to the forum index and saw Tabt was a DM too, except her name was "Tabbie".
Maybe I'm the oracle of Sals???
Read more for a summary of it.
Rained pretty much the whole time, was a sausage fest of 19 guys in my cabin and the informal formal involved a lot of grinding against chicks; all in all a great camp.
In the last two minutes they have a fast break so I intentionally foul the guy (we're leading 53 - 51 at this stage) he missed both of the shots, at the start of the last minute they have the ball in the key close to the net with their giant so I intentionally foul him and get sent off. He makes the first shot (beware there's no time left as it doesn't stop at my level) and misses the second; I'm overjoyed with relief. :)
I was then attacked by a midget on their team for not playing sportsmanlike :)
Well, during my work experience one of my tasks was to write for the community news there, here are the articles that I got published in this months edition (I did write more than two, the boss there said he publish the other ones in later editions):
So happy :P
Well, I think is the last one before I get to lucid dreaming! :P
So, I was at a football (soccer) match playing against some team of maybe 17-19 year olds and I was sitting on the bench and said "I'm not playing goalie next half," so I think they may have been destroying us. Then at half time I went over to there team and talked with their players who were really nice, and one their players was asked to do something like dance - then I woke.
I was trying to get somewhere by sprinting to a train with a couple of friends when I found myself on a raft in the just off the dock in the bay. The raft was in shambles and falling apart, so I ended up in the water and climbing up onto the dock. Then there were some balloons in the water or something that we had to pop to minimise pollution so I sharpened some metal pole and got 'em!
I was playing footy for my favourite team (hawthorn) and there were some giants there I didn't know. I then found myself at the quarter time break in some construction site where Kevin Rudd (former Australian prime minister) was saying something about mining and everyone was clapping. The next place I found myself was some empty store with Fatalysm, iToast and Entrility which was really weird, I think Fatalysm stole something from me and ran away and then they just left me on my own to wake up. :'(
So, in the dream I was at a sandwich shop, made a sandwich and was then offered a job there. My Canadian cousins then came here and there was a hole in front of my house loosely covered by bricks, apparently my Boss at work experience had dug a labryinth of tunnels under there - then I woke up.
On the work experience note, it's over; t'was fun, I got $50 for two weeks work and am getting 5-6 articles in the next newspaper they release.
Thought I'd chuck this up here to see what you guys think of it, I made it for health class a while back (I'm the main/only actor), it's pretty bad and most of the jokes suck. :)
Also, I choose the wrong database to compete in in the drive. :closedeyes:
And, I haven't been dreaming. :/
