Hey everybody. Sorry for the absence over the weekend. Actually, I haven’t really written anything for a while. The past few posts were done ahead of time. I thought I’d just have a little chat about what’s happening around me at the moment:
New internet connection: We’re set up to change from our phone-based internet service (ADSL/DSL) to something that’s supposed to be a bit faster (and finally, unlimited). I’ve been whining for unlimited internet for a while. Until then, we’re on a data plan for 500 gigabytes (GB). 250GB from 1 am until 9 am, and 250GB for the rest of the day. We’d come dangerously close hitting the 250GB mark for the long hour tier a few times. Once we hit it, we have to suffer through something that’s not even the fastest dial-up speed. Yes, this still exists in Australia. The service we’re moving to is a really crappy, cheap, slower version of what most developed countries have. We’ll still be far behind most countries, but I guess I’ll welcome any speed boost. (When I go to the USA, I’m always so happy to see that it doesn’t take me all day to download stuff. Uploading anything from Australia is a hell-spawned nightmare.)
Chat with the wedding photographer: We had a chat with him and we’re doing a really short pre-wedding photo session in a few months. I hate having my picture taken and posing for pictures is extremely boring, so this is going to be really fun. I’d rather be behind the camera than in front of it, honestly. When it comes to photography, I’m not even any good at it. Videography is a bit better for me, as weird as that sounds. I love making videos of stuff, but there aren’t enough hours of the day lately to do anything that I’m interested in.
Sickness and health: I have been feeling better overall, but decided to eat some food court Asian food, and of course, it made me sick. I’m still feeling the effects of that.
Australia Day: Australia Day is Friday. It’s also called Invasion Day and people have been calling for a date change for a while now. I don’t care what it’s called or when it is, as long as I still get a day off to sit around on my ass, eat pizza, and drink hot chocolate, I’m good.
Nervousness: I’ve been able to curb some of this lately and I’m proud of myself. I just had to change my way of thinking. I’m still shaky like a scared puppy, but at least there is improvement. Instead of being scared of people, I just accept that we all exist on this planet. Most of the time people don’t give a crap about what I’m doing or what I look like so I’m not so sure why I even care. We are all here. We all have to exist and the mere presence of someone being around shouldn’t intimidate me. (I’m still hating huge crowds.)
Summer: I hate summer.
Wedding details: I’m actually in the process of getting stuff together because at some point I have to tell my family and friends about it (which includes some of you too). I’ll share the details when I know (but it can’t be publicly available). It’s another website of mine, and when it’s ready, I’ll share it with you, but I’ll warn you that if I don’t know you well enough, I can’t let you see it. 🙂
That’s all from me right now. I hope everybody’s doing well, and until we have a one-sided chat again, I wish you well. Oh, and I hope you win the lottery. If you do, share some with me, eh?
