Archives for the month of: June, 2010

917 days left, 25% complete, 20 goals.

Alrighty, i’ve got the best songs on loop and i’m feeling inspired so i’m going to review my goals, what I have added, what I have completed and what I have avoided entirely:

Fill a money tin to the top with change: It’s almost there! Coins stand up when you put them in the slot now, after a shake they fall in, so it’s really getting close to my favourite part, cashing in and finding out the total!

Complete all of the scanning that is in the storage boxes at work: DONE! basically scanning is what you think it is, scanning pieces of paper, so instead of a hard copy, you can look up any archived file on a computer database. It’s a great idea in theory, but not so flash when no one knows what to call documents, where they want them, or even…what they are. I thought it would never happen, there were so many client files to create and SO many difficult documents that made so little sense in the beginning, but after a slight brain break and tonnes of investigation and work, it’s all done. The storage room is empty and I received praise and applause at the last staff meeting. Yes, applause…I was informed that the previous scanning staff member never received praise or applause. I am dependent on staff delivering new scanning to me now, which means I have more time to assist other people with whatever needs to be done, so I feel useful now, and can wander to reception and work on newsletters, help with mailouts and do other great stuff.

Find out my blood type: I have absolutely no idea what it is…no one has ever told me, and I never felt the need to ask…now I am curious! So, that’s easy.

Buy Japanese for Dummies and learn a few phrases: In my last post about goals I mentioned this one, but this has been edited to get a good Japanese textbook because my boyfriend thinks learning to read AND speak would be the best route and we’re looking into texts which can help with this…we found a fantastic one, but of course it was a well over my price range, so we had to leave it for awhile.

It’s taking a long time for me to select goals and reach 101 but I think that’s a good thing because i’m making ones I really want to achieve…not just stupid stuff I will ignore.

Has anyone else started using this website? I find most visitors click on the link for it on this blog, so I think it’s a winner.

Inspired by TiLT, but never on Thursday!

You can like comments now! Don’t you just love when you think to yourself, “hm, it’d be great if you could do that…hm,” and then someone actually decides it’s a good idea? Yeah, well, that happened when I found out you could like seperate comments on Facebook…normally i’d comment back and be like, “oh man, if I could like that…IT’D SO BE HAPPENING UP IN HERE!” and now, I can just like it and my notifcations have tripled. Win.

My boyfriend is a video game collector…it’s starting to get quite big and his current focus is Game Boys, I love everything about video games and their consoles…mostly it’s aesthetic for me, I just love the pop colours and design. Finding new ones he needs at markets or shops is a great feeling. I found the gold Gameboy Light, which was only sold in Japan originally but was mystically at a Cash Converters in the eastern ‘burbs of Melbourne. Even looking at updated photos is exciting…man, he needs to put these on a Flickr or something. I can never remember his URL’s for them all. His collection is beautiful to me. Click the pic!

Love & Sequins: Oh, christ, I am addicted…I can’t stop buying these podcasts. I’m currently listening to number 7, which is all about blogging. I always feel so inspired after listening to her content.

New shelves: I recently bought a new bookcase and set it up in my room, threw out an old desk and chucked out a lot of junk I didn’t need anymore. I then set up the shelf with toys, books and other lovelies. I really don’t act my age, because the top shelf is filled with my old stuffed toys and a Lego house which I adore, oh, and my Yoshi figurine. I’m so glad it’s done and dusted, also, it covers a frosted window which leads to the bathroom, and for the first time in my life, I am not woken up when someone goes into the bathroom to take a shower, because it blocks the light. Miracle! My house used to be much smaller and it was a window that led to the outside, then they extended and added a bathroom and an extra bedroom but left the window there. Luckily you can’t see anything except for light through it!

MS Office 2010 is here…oh, yeah…I spose that makes me an epic admin nerd that I am excited about that, yes? I was literally excited and jumping about thinking that they might have changed the standard font…seriously! But, I love that.

My mother just started learning how to SMS: It’s pretty funny…she got the caps stuck on and does not know how to turn it off, today I got a message which looked exactly like this “HOW ARE YOU FEELING                                                JACINTA” Yes, with those spaces…she always gets so shocked when I respond so quickly with two paragraphs of information, and I can’t help but giggle at that too, hey, i’ve been doing this for a decade  now! Oh my god, I have been texting for a decade?!

Was this early or late? I’m going to say early! Show me the links to your loves, so I can read away!

So,  I am platformer at heart, I love cutesy, side scroller video games and I always have…titles like Yoshi’s Island, Super Mario Bros and anything sweet where I need to rescue a beloved character by adventuring through a beautiful land. So, you can imagine how excited I was when Nintendo announced Kirby’s Epic Yarn. Possibly the most beautiful game I have EVER seen. The release date hasn’t been announced yet but I am so excited for this I could burst! Click the pictures to see them full size to really take in the glorious detail!
