Musical Instrument Maker

Amy and Simon - you guys are strange. I'm sure you have better things to do than to compete to see who posts the first comment. But hey, I'm flattered!

LAUREN! Going to Bali today! I should have posted this sooner (maybe you could have had a chance to actually read it), but hope you have a good time! Lock those bags...

My sister's in year 10, so that means she brought home a jobguide. In it has all the job possibilities you could imagine. There are so many different careers out there. It makes me wonder why I chose psychology. I mean, I could have become a...

Confectioners mix sweeteners and other ingredients, and shape and cook confectionary including chocolate, toffee and other lollies.

Also known as Orientation and Mobility (Guide Dog) Instructor. Guide Dog Instructors train dogs to guide people who are vision-imparied and also train these people to use a guide dog.

Or perhaps...

Musical Instrument Maker
Musical Instrument Makers build, repair and restore musical instruments and adjust or alter them to owners' specifications.

There are heaps of jobs out there. So don't be surprised if I quit uni to pursue my lifelong dream in becoming a musical instrument maker.

My Dad is attempting to grow a beard. Not that he really wants to, but his electric shaver is packed up somewhere. My grandmother thinks he looks like a homeless person.

But the best thing about living in this "temporary weigh station" is that it takes way shorter to get to uni. It cuts about 40 minutes off my travelling time. If only I had something constructive to do for the extra 40 minutes I have a day.

Driving to work today was crap. All because of one car. One car!!! Turned a two lane highway into a parking lot. I guess it goes to show that little things can cause huge disturbances.

Had the BEST time last night. Caught up with some highschool friends who I haven't seen in ages. Two of them are going over (separately) to England to work for about 6 months. I think that's sooo brave.

Anyway, caught up on lots of gossip about friends (and non-friends) in highschool. Turns out that like half of them are married/engaged and have kids. Or have kids and are not married/engaged. Very shocking. Luckily, all of us four girls last night were all single. Or I would've felt very uncomfortable.

Everyone sounds like they have such exciting lives.

And I got a free pair thongs out of it. So so cool. Highlight of the week!

Finally got the net back. Feels like forever, but it was only like 5 days!

So, my family has moved to a temporary house -- it's really nice. I feel strange living here though. Like camping. I only have the most basic of things with me, my desk is now a cardboard box.

I didn't realise how much I rely on the computer/internet. Without it, I couldn't do so much stuff. But it also freed up so much time. I think that I'm going to cut back on my net time. Or at least until exams are over. :D

And I'm copying this from Hooi's blog, but I thought that it was sooooooo good. Simon emailed this to me as well. Hope you guys don't mind me "stealing" it.

Random Quote of the Day:

"Most of us, when we are in the listener's role, feel compelled to be speakers. We feel a compulsive inner urgency to interrupt others as soon as they start to reveal themselves. We feel a strange obligation to advise them, and to support our advice with a few chapters from our autobiographies. We jump in at the first pause, and go on non-stop unless we are exhausted and the other person is near despair. Regrettably, I have done this to others. I have also had this done to me. I have experienced the sadness of not being heard because someone had not cared enough to listen to my sharing and to learn who I really am." -- John Powell

Today is moving day. The removalists are coming in approximately an hour. And I'm here blogging. A few more minutes and my mum would be telling me to get off the net and help her. We'll just wait. :D

Anyway, I went to the doctor today to see the results of my blood test. Luckily I am not anaemic, but I do have iron deficiency. She started to say something about boosting my iron levels, but I interrupted her, begging to not take iron pills. So she agreed and now I have to eat lots of iron-rich foods.

And my mum just called me to get off. It hasn't even been 3 minutes yet! :P

Oh, and for the people who may be feeling a little depressed or worried, I found this in my room when I was packing. I must've copied it down from somewhere.

Moving house

My family is moving in a couple of days.

After living in our house for 16 years, my family has accumulated so much crap.

When packing my stuff into boxes, I tend to go off-track because I find something that I haven't seen for ages. So I spend time just reminiscing over what I found. And I am a hoarder! I don't want to throw away anything. But I have been forced to throw away all my work from highschool (yes, I still had some I hadn't thrown away). And some things I just want to keep for remembrance -- like all my posters and magazines from my Backstreet Boys teenybopper days. If I throw them away it's like throwing away my past, man!

As we won't be unpacking everything straight away, we have to pack everything that we need in the short-term in suitcases, while the rest goes in bags and boxes. So don't freak out if it seems like I'm wearing the same thing over and over again. :)

But actually, me and my sister like packing. It's kinda fun!

And I probably won't be on the net as much as we won't be getting the computer up and running for a while. :[

Small veins

Ooh look I'm posting so soon! How exciting.

Anyway, went to the doctor today, she tried to extract blood from my right arm. My right arm is the arm used to give blood. The nurses at the blood donor centre said that it probably had the bigger vein becaue it's my writing arm. But my doctor couldn't extract any blood because my veins were smaller than er needle. So she tried my left arm, but she said that she couldn't even feel the vein there. Heh... Anyway, now I have to go to a blood testing clinic or something.

And my dad just called. He started saying all this stuff about cooking spinach and making soup... *sob sob*

But good news. No iron pills yet. Haha Fred. I will sic my dad onto you.

I have to go to the doctor tomorrow. My results came back from the blood test and it turns out that my ferritin levels are low. Or something like that.

Anyway, my mum "accidently" opened the mail (she says that she just opens eveything because everything is usually addressed to her or dad). So she made an appointment for me to see a doctor.

So yeah. Hope I don't have to take iron pills or anything. I can't take pills...

Logie Awards

Did anyone catch the Logie Awards last night? It wasn't bad, but the best part was when Neighbours won the Hall of Fame/Lifetime Achievement Award (not sure which). Neighbours now holds the record for the longest running soap opera in the world. And it has such a good track record of producing big stars, such as Russell Crowe, Kylie Minogue, Delta Goodrem, Natalie Imbruglia, Guy Pearce... the list goes on.

Anyway, the best part of the Logies is when the cast accepted the award and Harold (played by Ian Smith) did his rap. Hilarious stuff. Ian Smith is such an underrated actor.

The random quote of the day is also from the Logies, it's Chaser peoples' motto (they make shows on the ABC, such as The Chaser decides, and CNNN).
