All About daqua_99
My eyes are burning!
The past couple of days have been, eh, interesting, to say the least. Yesterday I went over my brothers to visit. As always my 7 year old nephew would not let me out of his sights, it was cute. Anyways he got a call about 2 in the afternoon from his wife's son from another marriage. He got himself into a car accident which ended up involving 3 other cars and a B-double semi-trailer. Luckily it was not his fault and he survived with only a few scratches, but the women in the car in front of him died.
Anyways after that I spent last night at a mates place for our weekly 'alcohol+games' get-together. Basically every week random people turn up to one of my mates places to play games until all hours of the morning whilst getting wasted. Last night there was me, Dobbie, Sam and Rob. We were continuously playing Halo 3 where it was Sam and Rob as "Team Friendship" and me and Dobbie as "Team Whatever". Thus this is why my eyes are burning, I got only two hours of sleep last night and I consumed a large amount of alcohol. Plus I slept with the "ninja cat", he just curled up under my arm and slept.
So as for the rest of the day I've got to try and salvage my brothers computer without a full-on reboot. He has been running it for four years without any anti-virus software and it is now so infected that I can't even use the internet through browsers or get onto task manager. I'm going to try and get my sister to install AVG and try to fix it, otherwise I'll just format the disk so he can start over.
The joys of being the only person to know anything about computers in a family as diverse as mine.
Don't you love it when people drag you into something and you have no way out of it?
I'm a supporter of the Liberal Party of Australia. They are the conservative party of Australia and can be compared to the Republican's in America and the Conservatives of the UK. Now I joined a couple of years ago but I forgot to renew last year and I haven't sent in my form this year yet (it starts July 1). Anyway I got a message from my mate today, who is also a member of the Party. He told me I was working in the election, handing out leaflets and counting votes, and that because of a lack of number's it's only me and him at this polling place all day.
Now the problem is I work that day. I work until four o'clock in the afternoon, but I can't back down because I don't want to let him down. I'm going to go into work tomorrow (even though I'm on holidays) and try and get the day off, but there is no guarantees.
I like it, though, how I never gt invited to meetings or get any letters but I still am tossed around to help out the party at the elections. They truly must be desperate
Four full days until the start of university, and bringing with it the start of stress, hours in the car driving and trying to balance the work-study-social life that I hold dear, whilst trying to fit in a couple hours for myself every day.
Whilst some people love university I have a general dislike towards it. People said that it would get easier after the HSC, which was our end-of-high school final test, but university is just like having the HSC every six months, it's terrible! Last session I got physically sick because of the stress, I was out for over a month and I failed a subject because of it. That's why this session I'm cutting it back from four courses to three. I'm doing Spanish for Beginners 2, which is a follow-up to a course I almost failed last session, Politics and the Media, which is something I'm really interested in, and Business Statistics, which is the course I failed last session.
Some people can cope with a full-time university load, but I'm not one of these people. I think I could if all I was doing was university, but not only do I live over an hours drive from the university campus but I work 30 hours a week. For example, this session I'm going to university four days a week, spending 10 hours in class but 12 hours travelling to and from the campus. Now add this to my 30 hours a week that I do at work and I hope you can understand why I'm struggling. I really want to move closer to the university but it's just way too expensive.
Anyway, onto non-university news, I've played about 5 hours of Final Fantasy XIIItoday. Whilst I don't think I'll get it done by Monday I should be at least within 10 hours of the finish, which isn't too bad for someone who hasn't finished a game in over a year. I also watched two episodes of Sanctuaryand it has sort of grown on me. Sure the special effects and sets are not as good as some other shows, but it's not too bad if you can look past it. I'm actually going to settle down now for a couple more episodes before I fall asleep. Also I went to the gym today. I spent 15 minutes on the bike and 15 minutes on a running machine and I was too exhausted after that to do the weights. Hopefully I'll do better tomorrow.
Anyways, have a good one!
