Also I forgot I'm starting to do a comic about a little demon from Hell.

He is called Jr.

I will post a picture of him as soon as I've finished spiffing him up on Photoshop.

However, direct your attention to some new websites.

Have fun kids

Long Time No Blog

Well I came on a couple of days ago and it appears that my last post was in April.
So this is my long overdue post about what has been happening.

Semester 1
Assignment: Make a Game Prototype [tick]

Holidays: Fun in Melbourne [tick]
: See Wicked [tick]
: Shop [tick, though I came back home with money. I mean come on! I should be broke or something. I think I just wasn't trying hard enough]

and other stuff

Semester 2
Assignment1: Finish making the Game [on going]

Assignment2: Animate part of the Battle of Wits scene from Princess Bride [on going *sigh*]

Assignment3: Create a virtual environment [on going, I'm starting to see a pattern emerge]

Oh yeah there was a few gymnastic competitions. One in June and one that just happened. I judged and coached in them. Plus there was one in the Gold Coast which I judged at, didn't get much money for it though *sad face*.

And I got a new watch (has a Dalek on it) and River Song's Sonic Screwdriver. It's soo cool it has a blue and red setting.

Well that's about it, actually there is other stuff, but I can't be expected to remember everything ... about ... my life ...

Exhasting Month

Well a month has past since I last posted, mostly because of uni but also because of work. Nothing much to report except that I'M MASSIVELY STRESSED!!

I have soo much to do. Basically I have to learn to use Source SDK, importing to said program and create a level as well as textures and various other related game creation thingies.

And I've only got two weeks basically to make it work :(
It wouldn't be so bad if I had more time, but the scope of the project!

Though for one of my projects I'm creating a level from Stargate SG-1. Which is much more fun, and I have more time. It is only three rooms and some corridors. The most difficult thing will be the Kwoosh effect and the event horizon.

Still it is something I can put on my resúme.

Design Process

Today we had a really boring lecture, one I think we have each semester. Design process is very annoying to hear about.
There is not much to learn. It's learning to use a process that works is what we need to learn.
It is a two hour lecture as well. Lame

First Week Done and Dusted

Well my first week back was a bit stressful. A lot of things had to be done, like changing a unit, going to a team meeting and buying materials for units I didn't think I had to buy.

I did have lots of fun though. Especially now I don't have to do Interior Design ^^ I now get to do Cryptography and Protocols. One of my friends is in it as well, so I can get help if I need it.

The only annoying thing is that there are two lectures in two different campus' one after another :( Oh well.

Class Update

Okay I've fixed my timetable. It took a while and I didn't even need to use a TARDIS. Instead of doing Interior Design, I am now doing Cryptology.
It looks very fun too, so I guess it worked out for the best. I still have to go to two different campus' right after each other though, so that is going to be a bit dicey.

Early Rising, Late Falling

Well now it is the third day back at uni, and as I said before I am really tired. I have to wake up at 5am (just like the sun) and trudge off to classes at 8am. Some days I don't get home till 8pm (a new shift at work, hurray).
It also looks like this whole year will be very work intensive. Eight assignments and a test for the first semester, and who knows for the second half of the year.
I don't think I will be able to keep up with everything (like games), or have as much fun (with games), and I won't stay up to date with the interweb (Penny Arcade and LFG ftw).

This year is starting to look as bad as the economic downturn (or recession for those in the UK and US).

One can only hope the holiday period will help rejuvenate my will to game and other fun related activities.

Day Two

Damn it!
Two classes clash, and apparently (according to the unit coordinators) they are both really important.
On top of that this is my second day starting really early (5am starts) and it is really taking it's toll.
I'm already tired and I also have to teach this afternoon :(
On the plus side I can now connect to the wireless internet on campus with my little Eee PC. I had to get a fellow student to configure the Linux system.

First Day Back

So it has been about three months since uni finished, and now it has come back.
Now I won't be bored and play games as much. So in the following weeks I will be posting my ideas for my classes with pictures and artwork. The only downside is that this semester looks like it is very heavy workload.
But I'm sure I will be able to do everything.
Also this year I am aiming for higher grades - the 5-7 mark - so my GPA goes up (it's on a measly 4.6 at the moment).

New Classes

Well nothing much has really happened since I last posted. But I finally get my own classes to coach gymnastics this year.
At the moment I've got three pre-level classes, which is like a beginner class for children. I've only done one of the classes, but this week I start on the other two :)
Hopefully they will all have fun and are fast learners.

Picnic at the Beach

My picnic on Sunday finally happened (took two weeks to organise).
It was a really nice day as well, practically no clouds in the sky.

Some people at the same beach.
A lot of the beaches were occupied, so my friends and I had to drive for a few minutes before we found an area with less people (as well as sufficient shade).

There were still a lot of people though.

Here are a few of the things we had for lunch.

Pikelets with honey and cream or jam and cream, choc chip cupcakes, crackers and cheese. We had Pepsi and Lemon Lime & Bitters as our beverages.
Though we were in shade, I still got sun burnt on my arms and legs.

Wearing way too much black.
A massive amount of cream on her pikelet.
All in all, a great day.

The New Year

Hi everyone.
I've been away for a very long time, too much time playing computer games and not enough on the assignments and internet :)
Hopefully I'll be a lot more active this year.

In the mean time here are a few websites to keep you company till I return.


I hope they give you a warm fuzzy feeling inside.
