So… I’ve been abandoning writing lately. And in the spirit of assignment avoidance I thought I should start again. No, but seriously, it’s cause I finally got the go ahead from my surgeon to start exercising again. And after not exercising for over two months, that has made me so super happy. Before my accident I was training for a marathon. Every morning before work I would get up before...
How to avoid conversations with crazy old men on...
1. Avoid Eye Contact. This is most important 2. Headphones. Even when the battery on your iPod dies and you can hear the couple behind you making out, pretend to be listening to something. As an added touch I like to bop along to the imaginary beat. 3. Arm yourself with knitting needles, and create spastic patterned jumpers. Put on said jumper. 4. Start dribbling. (Thank you broken jaw!) 5....
How to get a cheap flat in the centre city.
Nearly every day I have a conversation with someone about flat hunting. It’s tough, and apparently there is a housing shortage. Landlords are only willing to commit to six month leases and so constantly people are hunting for that perfect pad with a bedroom that isn’t the size of a shoe box, maybe a little patch of grass, oh and it must be within commuting distance. Did I mention that a house...

I got run over. BY A VAN. (True story)
So … Me and the other intern had just driven up the road on our lunch break. We were on our way back and we parked her car in the car parking provided by work. It’s separated from our massive work building by 6 lanes of traffic that just comes off the motorway. We walked through the car park, and met up with another colleague. We then walked to the roller garage doors. We were having...
The weather is crazy. It’s like pea soup and I am a giant spoon, running round the city, mixing this shit up. All I can think about is dressing up in a spoon costume. Spooning anybody?
My Walk Home
So. I was walking home this afternoon, and as usual I was standing waiting to cross the road (Don’t even get me started on this… After my accident I will stand and wait at all corners until the green man flashes even though I can see for miles in either direction and its clear) and this old man rocks up and stands beside me. We were just standing there and other people start milling...
So, This is doing the rounds at work at the moment, and I think it is absolutely amazing! http://www.intel.com/museumofme/en_AU/r/index.htm I’ve always wanted my name in lights, and with this im almost partway there. However, it really makes you think about the amount we share and put on social media. And how easily it can be accessed .
So, recently I was run over by a Van. After being brutally injured, I’ve have had to have heaps of time off work. I’m sure eventually I will write a whole post about it - cause its a pretty major thing to happen in ones life ya’know. Stuck at home, house bound and going crazy, my best friend and flat mate Frances decided I should write a blog. It was either that or me bug...
