Creative Tendencies Img
Here is a test image:
It has been taken with the low-res camera phone, and as you can see, is off this very website. It has an interesting "swoosh" effect.
Today is Saturday
Bort is here now, playing guild wars. He's excited over factions...so am I actually. I want to play my warrior through to level 20 so I can get to the end and play factions when it comes out. I hope I can keep the enthusiasm up.
I haven't played tales of symphonia for sometime now, which is annoying. I think I will start playing it more tomorrow. For the rest of toady I'm going to concentrate on gw.
Apart from that my parents looked through a house today, but it was no good as it backed on to a school.
That's about it for now...I may come back in again later today. ~Cheers~

If we didn't know of the existence of other countries, would life be much simpler? If we one day find life on other planets will people be looking back on this time as the "dark ages?"
It's a question which stems forth many other philosophical questions...
Questions of time and space mainly but all kick ass questions...more tomorrow though..i'm tired now! Might try and get some pics in tomorrow!
After the stand-up...
It was well worth it, and very entertaining.
There will be at least one more post tonight...so i'm not saying good night as yet!
Before the stand-up
Alright so, after I have the "experience" of Pauly shore, I will report back to you.
In the mean time go do something more constructive than reading this blog! lol.
By the way, I did play guild wars. Hehehe.
Anyway must be off....cheerio
I spent this morning updating my myspace page....I know how nerdy that sounds but I felt like exercising my creative engines on my profile. (No link for you yet :p). After that I had a shower, and apart from breakfast this brings me to hear...which is almost 11:30am (friday).
I'm going to see "Pauly Shore" tonight, for those of you unaware he's an actor\stand-up comic. We got front row seats (myself, bort, dw and link), so it should kick some serious ass. I'm beginning to get excited! Hehehe.
Once I've posted my "friends" post I will probably play some guild wars...I'm not sure whether I want to play that or tales of symphonia...only time will tell.
Well...so far it looks like I'm quite happy posting on this blog. I also have plans to include several photographs, at least now and then...but be warned...they will be taken with my very low-res camera phone...so don't expect anything no pixelated. hehe.
I'm not tired. So I thought I would (quietly) type some more stuff. The keyboard is however very noisy...so I changed my mind.
Good night again. - I hope I wake up in the same mood i'm in now. I'll try ;-)
~Will it ever change?
For now though...as much as I feel like rambling on and on untill 4am, I feel as though I'm keeping the whole house awake with my fingers tapping on the keyboard...so good night. :-)
Before I do wander off to the land of sleep I should make a few notes, brief and very, very unofficial - about what I want to do here...I want this blog to be my safe place...where I can write about anything, without care. Certain things may be ommited, on the off chance that friends may come along...and because part of me doesn't really want to know what the other part is hiding.
I want no conformity as such, no specific rules or orders, with the exception of this one...the onl rule is there are no rules.
Today I did a few things...
- Went shopping for link's bean bag
- Help noci sort out his insurance
- Played some guild wars with noci and bort
- Installed windows 98 on my laptop (128mb of ram is not good with the beast that is winxp)
- Opened this blog...
- Stayed up till early hours of the next morning surfing the internet and posting this post, listening to rain.
Uni starts up again on monday. I want semester two to start. I want to make mention of my friends as well...and since i'm in a blogging mood and want to put them into their own little post, this will be the end of this post.
Push button publishing at it's finest. ;-)

You read a glimpse of other peoples lives and you live their lives within moments, you see their down's and their in-betweens all in a flash of text. Whether or not what is written is true, it matters not, for the experience is true in your own mind. It's strange really...I dislike, with a passion, (I don't like the word hate)...television shows like big brother, which thrive on the voyeurism of false realities, and oscar wilde's masks are taken to their extreme. Does this perhaps make me a hypocrite....not only do I enjoy reading blogs/journals/diaries etc... yet hear I am creating (another, probably over 10 now) one...
I've made a resolution to try and relax a little. Certain things right now are driving me totally nuts, including questions about values and life-long goals, I was at a state where I was almost convinced that it wasn't that life was so bad...just there was nothing really worth living for...a buddhist-belief motivated statement...but also very pessimistic...which I'm sure buddhism didn't intend.
So without droning on, although I probably am already, I've decided to let my apathy become passion for doing something. No matter what it is...perhaps that's mindfulness...perhaps that's just silly...but it's worth a shot I guess.
Well that aside...I felt like writing so this place was born. Hopefully I will be motivated and comfortable enough for this blog to become a nice home for further writings. If not, then I suppose it doesn't really matter.
If you've read this far...then I congratulate you. Leave me a comment and I'll try and reward you by returning the favour. :)
