Went to an engagement party that I was not looking forward to. Wound up spending 2 hours talking to an intelligent, attractive woman and getting her contact details.

|I've just been terminated||August 27, 2012, 1:01 am|
Just 2 minutes ago I was notified that work has dried up, so I no longer have a job. I was a draftsperson at a mechanical engineering company.
Best fucking news I've had all year.
|Let's go running with Khorus (photos of Australia)||February 8, 2012, 5:51 am|
I decided in late December that I wanted to get back into athletics, so I'm in a rather rigorous training regime right now. I run 4-5 days a week and do strength training in a gym 3 days, with 1 day a week for rest.
At the moment I'm running a ~8.5km circuit, but I'll be swapping to doing that distance on a grass 400m track as the concrete and bitumen is not very good on the knees. My overall goals are to do a marathon distance run by the end of the year and join up at a club for next year. My main event has always been the 100ms (which requires a lot of technical training), but I'll see how I do with the longer distances.
My knee was developing an injury during yesterday's run, so I decided to walk today's and take photos for the fun of it. :) Sorry for the crappy quality, the camera is just a cheap kodak and I have no idea what I'm doing heh. Not to mention the bright summer sun.
This is the start of the circuit, the path going along side of my house. zomg mulberry tree is collapsing on the fence! We soon start to run parallel to the river. photo1
I do a brisk walk to this point, which is about 500m from the first photo. I do stretches and shit here. There was a capsized kayak here yesterday, pretty sure the guy was drunk haha (he also refused help, but he had a friend with him in another boat so I left it). photo2
Start running, slow pace for 5 mins or so, and after maybe 800ms we come to this intersection. I turn left and then take an immediate right (not in shot), we leave the river. The area in the background is swamp in the winter. photo3
After ~600m we come to this area. There's often a flock of 100 or so western corellas (not my photo heh) foraging here, but I had to leave early as I was walking so I missed their evening feed. photo4
After taking a right at the end of photo4's path, we run along a crescent shaped road. There are houses along to the right of this road, but I took the photo where there is a small park instead. The incline here is a real bitch to run up, but it's good for ya. photo5
Taking a right at the end of photo5, and then an immediate right again, we come to this small bridge. This starts my favourite part of the run. photo6
500m after the bridge I start running on the grass for 2km. photo7
Back on the path for 500 we come to and run on this bridge. fishing bird in flight! photo8 There's a much larger bridge in view from here that I had to take a photo of with 2 black swans and their young one. :D photo9
I skipped taking photos for ~1.5km because it's all urban area, really hate this part of the run. We come to a miniature railway at the end of that, with a church at the back of this photo. I get a lot of energy looking at that.. photo10
Here's the final photo! (I ran out of memory, forgot to clean out old photos. Whoops!) After running on the railway for ~800m we pop out here. We would have run over this bridge if in photo2 we veered right and kept going for 200m instead of turning left which is a roughly 3km circuit. It's about 1.5km more from here to home. photo11
Probably the longest post I've made here heh. Hopefully someone got something out of it. :)
|Super happy fun slide!||December 29, 2010, 2:06 pm|
Just got an email from a musician I've loved for many years now. I have an opportunity to rearrange (or "remix" if you will. eurgh!) one of his tracks. Pretty stoked about this opportunity, going to pour a lot of effort into it. :)
That is all!
|Music uploads||November 29, 2009, 4:04 am|
I've decided to upload some music tracks from an album I recorded from early to mid this year on youtube as I really don't want them to sit there and rot. It's music I made while I was still getting a grip on what I was doing, so it's quite raw and simple but I genuinely enjoy some of the tracks I made. They were my babies for 6 months or so, with alot of slowly tweaking and changing as I discovered new methods and ideas.
I'll be adding more over time. Hopefully someone enjoys them, subscribe to the channel if you do. :)

I am in the process of making an "album" I suppose right now, and I'm interested in seeing what people think of some of the work I've done.
I've used somes samples and art from kristus' work, which he kindly gave me permission to use (<3).
Hope somebody gets something out of it. :)
