Trouble Sleeping

I’m having a bit of trouble sleeping tonight, partly due to hunger (I ate earlier than usual) and the other part from my ticking mind.

I’ve only recently just caught up with everything I needed to do. This Sunday and today was one of the few days where we got to sleep in and wake up without needing to bolt to anywhere in a hurry. I miss that.

August was an insanely eventful month, by the end of it I was a complete mess. Emotions ranged from happiness to… sadness and pain, from ski trips, Melbourne adventures, conventions and new additions to something that had a big impact on my family. It was a month that didn’t end on a good note, nor did September begin on the happiest note.

We’re still searching for our first home which is taking up most of our time. I keep telling myself that things will slow down and we’ll finally be able to catch up with people, but I don’t think people will be around. It’s an interesting situation. I don’t feel as if I’m that close to that many people, maybe it’s just the curse of the working life, or maybe the same differences that bring people together are the ones that are that end up separating you.

I’ve never been a a social person. I think the thing people liked about me is that it effortless to talk to me because I would remember the strange little conversations and would randomly see how someone was doing, not frequently but enough to keep something going. Now that I’ve stopped, because I can’t keep up anymore, so has most things it seems, except for those few people =). Before I started writing this blog, I thought it was something I minded, but I’ve come to realise, it’s not. There will always be the people that will be the easiest to talk to. Besides when it comes to the end, I just want something small and intimate.

Next blog will be less talk and more photos from the past few months =P.

Longest Work Day Yet

So I started a little after 9am, finished work a little before midnight today and just home just before 1am.

Though I did have an hour’s travel time to get to the city for a two hour grad meeting, but still counts as work.

Brandon hurry back I’m sleepyyyyy. I knocked two deliverables out today, but whenever you send/release anything, you’ll always get more work in return the next day ><.

He's back. BEDTIME!

Welcoming 2014!

So tired right now, but an not asleep, obviously not the smartest person awake right now =P!

So 2014, what will you bring?
Super study! Which I’m currently failing! I have an exam in less than 4 weeks, and I’m still slacking off!!!! I don’t even know if it’s booked properly =.=”””. I technically never received a confirmation email, but I did receive a confirmation receipt, soooo maybe? I’ll check when I’m in the office.

The end of the year was not too long ago, I spent it at Ed’s with a few high school friends and a few of her/boyfriend’s friends. Unfortunately not with Brandon. It was a good night, though we missed the end of the fireworks because we almost lost the cat haha. Kodali bears the battle scars of the struggle,  but we did get the cat back inside, so win!

Maybe that struggle symbolises the year we’ll have making the choices between the shiny pretty things and the fight to save the world and creatures great and small!
Or it could just be a year filled with crazy blogging. Only time shall tell!

Ams the tired,

Access removed!

Haha so my computer was installing patches this morning for office and other miscellaneous programs, but I couldn’t be bothered to restart caused I was doing work.
Finally I gave in to to slowness of my computer and restarted hoping to kill two birds, fix the slowness and give the patches what they wanted.

Restarted. Outlook not working, ok tried Excel, also not working.
Shut down and reboot. Outlook still not working as well as all other office programs T.T.

So I called help desk and they told me for some unknown reason the programs had been deleted from my profile =.=”””.

Now I’m just waiting for my profile to refresh. At least it was the end of the day.

Also had a team lunch and sent off the last of the Gunawirra presents today!

Can’t wait for my break and all the study I’ll be doing!!!!! Must pass SAP!

Good Tidings,

I remember once we went bowling, and we had a weird lane that wasn’t working. Some pins had gotten stuck down the back of the lane, and then those pins pulled in more pins and some bowling balls in as well.

We left them there until it became too ridiculous to play cause it pretty much stopped the whole game. An attendant had to go behind and free them. But some of those pins got stuck again, though we left them, cause we tried to move them and it was one of those things where you have to make a choice; to move them and face having it happen over and over again or to move on and put in a work around.

So we did the latter, and played around the pins. I wanted to move them again, but I had a feeling those pins would have stubbornly gotten stuck again plus they weren’t being disruptive anymore and we only had the one game to play.

I won the game =), but we lost as a team to the boys. Next time we’ll beat them!

Sometimes you get a little stuck,
