#43: Thanks for Everything

I talk about my first few weeks of being back home, my journey to the USA, Thanksgiving plans, and losing things. Sorry this is so late and sorry in advance about the terrible audio quality. I learn from these mistakes, but I barely got this one done. See you soon!

Also, thank you from the bottom of my heart for those of you who listen. I know there aren’t many, but I really appreciate you sticking around and listening. 🙂

The website at Complicated Noise is up in its not-quite-finished form. Visit it at your own risk!

Find My Phone

Something I forgot to mention is that I lost my phone at the airport in Melbourne, so I don’t have my phone with me. I’m still hoping it will be returned, but I’ve pretty much accepted that it’s lost in action. That means that I am missing a few logins because I use two-factor authentication (you know, look at your phone and enter a number to log in?). I’ve had to delay my next podcast episode for about 5 days while I figure out what to do about it.

I cannot log in to my Discord server, so I’ve had to make a new account. You can find the new server here and my username is complicatednoise#0459.

There’s a reason why I lost my phone, but I plan on talking about that on my next episode. I don’t want to give out too much information.

Other than that, so far, it’s been nice hanging out with my family. I am still quite sleepy (or awake) at weird times so I’m still a bit wonky from passing over 17 time zones.

I hope everybody is well. I’m planning my next trip already to India next year.

Chat with you soon!

Arrival

Hey guys and girls, I’ve arrived in the USA safely. I’ve had a few little hiccups getting here, but at least I made it. I’ve been here for about a day and a half, so I’m still jet lagged and a little crabby at times.

I will be talking about my trip getting here soon on a podcast episode, so stay tuned for that. Let’s just say that there was a point where I didn’t think that I would be able to leave Australia.

When I’m more awake, I’ll write more here. Until then, hello!

#42: Returning to the Origin

Before I fly back to the USA, I talk about my website development on complicatednoise.com, getting packed (and lack thereof), family issues back home, flying anxiety, what Australians think Texas is like (and what Texans think about Australia) and more. Recorded over 2 days. 18:15 starts the new day.

I’m in the process of moving things over to the new website, so I’ve stopped using the web-based player for now. I’ve almost got the new guide up at least!

The Distant Future of Complicated Noise

OK, so the last podcast episode didn’t arrive yesterday. I had a pretty hectic workweek and the upcoming week looks just as bad, but I’m going to try to get something recorded and posted by this coming Thursday.

Why is this one a big deal, you ask? It’s the last one that I’m going to post before I leave for my extended vacation. It takes me about a week to recover from jet lag so I’ll post another one then.

I don’t think I’ve mentioned much about this, but things will have to be done a little differently. I am bringing almost everything I need to record, however, I won’t have access to my trusty Mac. Luckily, my sister has the same one but she’s not a fan of me loading all my software on her’s.

I doubt the Complicated Noise website will be done too – but I’ll work on it while I’m in the USA. I was planning to work on it today but the husband wants me to go shopping today. I guess I’ll do what I can.

I know I’ve been silent lately, but as I’ve said, I’ve been a little busy. I’m hoping to do and say more when I can relax a bit.

I’ll be in contact, I promise.

I hope everyone is doing well!!! Chat with you soon! 🙂

Happy Halloween (late?)

Technically, I’m a little late saying this, but hope you had a pretty awesome Halloween. It’s not a big deal in Australia, so I usually forget that it comes around. Last night, we got a few kids drop by, but that’s all. I get to eat the candy we didn’t give away. 😉

Something I was thinking about is how I wonder what my adult versions of the costumes I used to wear as a kid. I remember dressing up as a clown, a cat, a compulsive gambler, and I think I was a ghost too. They used to get recycled because it was easier to do that than to think of something else.

Anyway, the adult versions would probably be a bit creepy. Or scary, however you want to put it.

I’m still suffering through some of my worst allergy seasons in a long time. I’m just tired of not being able to breathe.
