Apologies. January 7, 2012

I haven’t posted anything here for so long that I feel guilty. I really should post here, otherwise my somewhat lacking literary skills will diminish and die altogether. I will come back. I swear. It’s almost as though I’m the reformed alcoholic father coming back after all this time to wish you a happy birthday. I’m a terrible person. I know. Forgive me.

 

P.s. I’ll probably change my tag/name/username to Swifty. Just cos I’m cool like that.

Bear With Me November 6, 2011

You know, because people like bears.

On a somewhat unrelated (yet quite connected if you’re a clever dumpling) note, I have a request of you, oh mysterious, invisible force. Will it make a difference whether you respond or not? Yes, because behind this plain font is young chap with trembling fingers and an easily influenced mind. For example, a lighthearted conversation with my mother today resulted in me agreeing to start taking piano lessons.

Story idea: finding the lost virginity. Yes or no?

The Right Kind of Word Vomit March 4, 2011

Being socially apt is natural to many and I’m often confronted by disbelief and admiration something in the absence of sympathy when I let slip to my dear fans that I am not the most articulate of people. No, that’s not putting it the right way. My articulation varies depending on the situation, which I’m sure applies to many who hide behind handles and other kinds of masks on the internet.

Oh, the metaphor

Take it from me, anyone can sound like a clever prat as long as they are tapping away on a keyboard. I would know. Give one as much time to respond with as little pressure as possible and you’ve got yourself someone who can seem like a completely capable human being.

Now, talking in real life – that right there’s a talent.

It’s Goot. It’s Grait. November 4, 2010

Being born and brought up in Australia, I find it difficult to begin sentences with the word ‘and’, but I believe that this particular occasion deserves such an atrocity. Please find it in your deep, dark hearts to forgive me.

Done and dusted. November 4, 2010

Well I actually finished last Monday but there’s no harm in posting now. Deft should be finishing tomorrow and I have no idea when the hell the other guy finishes. This post will be short and sweet.

It’s good that it’s over. It seems after all that hard work (read: pre-exam cramming), it really was sort of good for me in the end. No, not really. I did enjoy it though. All the times at school, causing shenanigans, those are the times I’ll miss the most. The good times and the bad times are things you just never forget, especially in high school.

My father once told me that friends you make after high school won’t always be around forever, but friends you do make in high school stick around until you die. I really hope this is true because the people I’ve met the past six years have been special. Nothing gay, just special (maybe a little bit).

Anyway, the beginning of the end is upon us now and for the next couple months, it’ll just be partying until we pass out. Seriously need to get a good NYE party going and get Deft hammered because I have never seen him drink ever.

And in the final spirit of the HSC, I leave you with an image that has guided my life for the past twelve months as I’ve endured the good times and the bad, even the ugly.

I think is my first post to not have a swear. Also there are quite a lot of clichés in this I hope you all ignore.

And so… October 13, 2010

Bromance September 22, 2010

I’m sitting here listening to Love Story by Taylor Swift and I just feel so sad that it’s over. After six years, I can’t believe that we all made it. Together. This will be a short post because there isn’t really much to say except that I miss everyone already. We may be an all boys’ school but the love is strong, or should I say, bromance. Last night I got a bit teary during the speeches, it’s hard to imagine how life will be afterwards without everyone being there. All the support over the years has kept me alive and happy, never a truly sad moment. From getting arvos for untucked shirts and a baby entering the Normo traditions, we’ve all had exciting moments. This is getting pretty fucking sentimental now.

Good luck to everyone, and thank you for everything.

Wow, time has gone past so fast, I haven’t had time to catch up on my work (not that I would). The last day of school has passed and now we’re faced with three weeks of hardcore study. I can sense the fat pulling on already from staying at home all day and cramming my head full of shit that I most probably won’t need to know once I’m done with the HSC. It’s times like this that you can’t help but reminisce the first time I stepped into Normo and witnessed the shittacular magic that is our school. Though, with the amount of crap I’ve been pumping into my body the last six years, I really can’t remember much. Analogies are thrown all over the place but the one particular one I personally like is using a proper dinner course. We’ve gotten the drinks out of the way, the entrée was a breeze to stuff down, the main was juicy and meaty and now we have dessert. Paincakes.. I mean pancakes.

FMH September 10, 2010

Yes, I know. You thought it said FHM. FMH is something I came up with in a dream where I stabbed a lot of people because you know, it’s normal to have those dreams. Self-explanatory really, Fuck My HSC. I’m really not down with this whole concept of having thirteen years of work crammed into the ultimate examination period we will experience for years to come. It’s quite really a ton of bullshit. The gravity of this pile of bullshit will eventually turn on us and fling it at our face in which case we’ll all contract gonorrhea, pink eye, or syphilis, or possibly all of them.

Tech Review: UltimateEars MetroFi 220 August 16, 2010

So yeah, I got these new earphones the other day, to replace my somewhat worn and aged UltimateEars MetroFi100

They're sexy, no?

They're so sexy so clean, the baddest 'phones for me, I'm wondering why I only see them in my dreams.

And yes, it seems like I like this brand a lot, but i’ve had numerous earphones, so I know what it’s like to have dodgy earphones.

I guess I’ll compare them to SkullCandy (can’t remember which model, but they’re for around half the price of the MF-220’s and the same price as the MF-100’s); the standard iPod earphones; the MF-100’s; Sony MDR-EX85LP. Specifications are at the bottom of the post
