All About Locked1089
So, four months since I last blogged and what's changed?
I've finished all the work for the TAFE course (looking forward to next year already) though I still have classes on this Tuesday and Thursday, then I'm off to the US (or more specificly New York and Los Angeles) for almost three weeks.
Still doing the 5am starts at Coles (those three weeks away will be heavenly)
Gaming wise I've gotten my 360's online hooked up and running. Also began on a backlog of 360 games I had but hadn't started yet (because I'd lent the console to a friend afew months prior).
My Wii is finally getting some loving (mysister had this console for a while, I bought a whole lot of stuff in GAME's mid-year sale and am only now finally getting to play them). Super Mario Galaxy is the only 3D Mario game so far that I absolutely love, I can finally see why it got all those perfect scores back in 2007.
PS3 is still the preffered console (Black Ops was the game of the moment, but I'm probably not gonna do any gaming at all before I leave, still have to pack my bags and stuff).
This blog is quite random now that I look at it. It's like my thoughts are a ping pong ball going back and forth. Might end it here actually, got nothing much else to ay right now
So I'm sitting here, bored, on a lovely Saturday night. An onslaught of 21st birthday parties await over the next few weeks. I got a most unusual text yesterday, 'twas my boss wondering if I'd like this coming Sunday off. This was odd for two reasons:
1. She never wants me to take time off.
2. I have the next two weekends after this one already booked off for the 21sts I mentioned earlier
With these in mind I realised she must have an ulterior motive, and she did, I'm now working Mondy instead of tomorrow. It's less pay but I'm fine with it as I'm quite drained from this past week. Don't get me wrong, I've done next to nothing but I'm finding it quite draining regardless.
Not much has happened in the...7 and a half months since I last blogged.
Most notably I've started a course in Professional Wriitng and Editing at the local TAFE. A few of you may remember my short stint in IT at RMIT from last year and how I absolutely hated it. Writing is what I've always wanted to do and I'm thoroughly enjoying this course. I've learned so much in the three or four months since it began and I've made some awesome new friends. Because it's a course requirement to actualy have our writing workshopped I've also become much better at sharing my work in public, not gonna post anything hre yet though. When one of my pieces was used as part of a training exercise for the TAFEs Drama department I was pretty happy though.
Still working at Coles (with the stupid 5am shifts, although they have cut the midday weekend shifts which is fantastic). It's alright and it's good pay, I just hate the early starts. Because of these however, I have found myself quite often drifting into this alternate world where I'm a few years older and a struggling writer in LA...well I was struggling until recently where I sold a script to Warner Bros. This world I've made is ridiculously detailed. I should consider making it into a piece of literature one day, it has a fully fleshed out timeline for about 4 months, more then enough to do a story. It also has bits and bobs from before and after this four months...yes it's very weird.
Still living at home. I'm currently planning a trip to Japan which I'm looking forward to A LOT.
My favourite currently running show (well not anymore) LOST has begun and finished it's final season since my last blog. I honestly hated the first episode of this season but it grew on me considerably and I am in love with the ending they chose for the show. I could watch the last ten minutes any time and stil get emotional. This season has been nominated for 13 Emmy's, 7 of which were for the final episode specificly, which is hilarious to me because techically, since it went for two and a half hours, it should not be able to be nominated (Rules state that only up to a two hour version, of a regular one hour show, can be nominated, they made an exception for LOST though).
I've been gaming less this year then normal, I have recently discovered the whimsy of the brilliant Monkey Island series though, so I'm loving that.
I think I'll leave it here for now. Next time I may go into more details about my home life and possibly what movies I've seen over the last half year.
So I bid you all farewell, and wish you a god morning, god afternoon and good night
