      SMAD Come see Lazer Team in R

      I have a new house now, yay! It's an awesome place that I'm sharing with 3 of the 4 people I was living with previously, so that's cool. It's in a set of apartments called "Kensington Manor"; I feel so fancy :3.

      I've also picked up a new MMO, DC Universe Online, because it's FTP and freaking awesome! I love the customisation of the characters (I'm a hero of course XD), and how, well pretty much everything works. It's like they took the best parts of my favourite MMOs and smooshed them together. The only downside for me was the limitation on the in-game cash wallet if you don't pay for a subscription. But I soon fixed that with about $40 for 3 months for Legendary Status. It's been a very long time since I paid money to an MMO (not since my heyday in Rappelz), so that should say a lot about how I think it's worth it. Or something.

      I also realised I haven't posted my entry to a Rappelz video contest that I entered a while ago, since it is a machinima video, I figured it would be appropriate to post it here as well. Oh, in case you don't get the reference Robot Unicorn is a little addictive flash game, its hosted by the Adult Swim website if you want to play it.

    • New Job vs NEET

      6 years ago

      SMAD Come see Lazer Team in R

      So, about 3 weeks ago I started my new full-time job at a sewing supplies shop. It's pretty cool, I get to sell sewing machines and related stuff and also try out the super awesome ones without having to actually buy one (which I may do anyway XD). For a few years now I've been experimenting with small sewing projects, from costumes to bags and even a cute little stuff robot doll that helped me place 2nd in an online contest.

      Coincidently, it appears that about 3 weeks ago I also was the featured user on the front page of Rooster Teeth. As I have been very busy with my job, and usually barely having the energy to check Facebook (it's a standing-up-the-whole-time job as most retail positions are), I hadn't realised this till now. So a belated thank-you to everyone who congratulated me, on this, my 2nd featured user in my (coming up on) 4 years of Rooster Teething.

      Due to my job sucking up all the time I had been spending being NEET (look it up), I have been going through a forced MMO withdrawal. However, I am holding up pretty well, seeing as in one of the games I had been playing (Rappelz), my account had been hacked about 2 months prior, and took several weeks to get restored, so I eventually lost interest in that one and opted for the newer one I had been playing also, Aion. Although as luck would have it, I approached the level cap in a couple of months and I was 1 level below the max level just before stating my job, so I had no real urge to play seeing as I had already experienced most of the game already and didn't have any real goal to shoot for any more.

      Normally I would have started a new game, but maybe it's time to stop playing around and be content with watching a couple of episodes of anime after dinner as my self-allocated, daily recreation, then off to bed because I have to be up for work tomorrow.

      Oh yeah, also my house I currently live in is getting knocked down in 2 months (the minimum time allowed for notification), or so our landlord informs us. To be fair, it is a old decrepit house in an otherwise sparkly suburban/family neighbourhood. So yeah, wish me luck on house-hunting, I'll go buy mailboxes for bait now, and a nice hefty spear.

    • It's Been A While

      7 years ago

      SMAD Come see Lazer Team in R

      Wow, since my last post about the Toowoomba flood. My hometown, Roma, (and the surrounding region) has been flooded twice more. Poor new piano got its feet wet, still waiting on assessment as to whether it's stuffed or not. My sister's house got redone, only to be completely washed out again in the second flood, and a heap of trouble with red tape, getting builders, and organising getting the house lifted delayed proceedings so much that when the third flood came along the following year, her family (husband and two small children) were still in temporary accommodation at our parent's house. (Which thankfully, is pretty big.) However, things are now under-way finally, and the house is now on much taller stilts (basically two stories high but will have with nothing but an open concrete area underneath).

      Since this is the third major flood in three years, all the important people are having serious discussions about flood mitigation for the area. A local and (I think) preferred insurer, Suncorp, has had to stop issuing new policies for the Roma area and other insurance providers in the area don't cover floods (as far as I'm aware, and if so, not to the extent Suncorp does). So there's a huge pressure on the people in charge to DO something, but at the moment it's all red tape and meetings. Hopefully something will be done, before the next big one hits.

      The thing is, Roma used to only flood once every 10 or so years. The fact that it has flooded every year for three years, says that something has happened to change the way water from heavy rainfall runs off (or not run off as the case may be). However, I'm not a ecologist or an engineer, so I'll leave it to those guys to figure out.

      Anyways, enough of rain. Since then and now I have GRADUATED! Woo hoo! I now officially hold a Bachelor of Creative Industries Interdisciplinary - Interactive and Visual Design. Phew that's a long degree name. Basically I can do stuff like graphic design for web or print, HCI design and web design, if I REALLY have to. I did a web design project for a government-run playgroup website.

      It really is a battle between you and the client, you design something (pretty) awesome and they're like "That's great, but we've suddenly decided we want a completely new direction". And you start from scratch, again. I mean, it's hard enough trying to get a nice "children-like" design (that is, a design that shows it's about children, not necessarily for children) to fit in their "Oh, not too flashy please, serious gumment bizness" model. And the fact that I was only the designer (and working from home) on the project, and not the developer, so I had to hand over my designs to the coder and hope he puts everything in the right place and uses the fonts I suggest.

      So, I'm not going to post a link here because I'm not particularly satisfied with the way it turned out, personally. But the client liked it, which, I suppose at the end of the day, is the thing that matters.

      Uh-huh.

      This is all just so crazy... I was driving home through here less than 24 hrs before this flash flood hit.

      Some video footage of how fast the water was flowing

      A friend of mine lives in Toowoomba, thankfully he was not at work when it happened (the car being washed down the street was near the shopping centre in the Central Business District).

      Did I mention Toowoomba is on top of a mountain? o0

      Just the sheer amount of area and towns affected is insane

      Thankfully, I'm in Roma atm. We only got minor flooding so far and all the roads were cut off late December for about a week (I think they'd be cut off again since Monday), but we're still keeping an eye out and staying alert.

      Now our capital is flooded, and tomorrow morning the city's river is supposed to peak again at high tide.

      And I thought I'd be moving back there in a few weeks for uni. o_o
      (Though the uni has cancelled all classes and exams, cause two of the three campuses are cut off and the third is only running on skeleton staff).

      I must say though, my home town has been extremely lucky in this season's floods, because in March '10 we had a huge flood which flooded my sister's house (it was on stumps already off the ground and the water got about 2 foot throughout the whole house), and flooded the downstairs of my parent house (not the main living area, but it trashed the laundry room, my dear old piano and lots of things we had stored down there).

      However this time, it only got into the yard of my sister's house and the only consequences we've had so far is that the truckies can't drive on the roads to deliver supplies from the city, so our supermarkets getting bare. But we did get some supplies flown in, so we aren't in any real trouble at the moment. Once the waters have gone down we'll be going out the the other small towns near us, like Chinchilla, to help out with the clean up.

      ...Start to clap your hands now... etc.

      For those of you not in the know, CaramellDansen is an Internet meme. And yeah you going to have to YouTube it yourself because I'm too lazy to link the video. (Oh well look at that, maybe I'm not.)

      Anyhow, for one of my uni assignments I had to create a cover of any song of my choosing. I was going to Blood Gulch Blues, but I failed to find decent sheet music/guitar tabs for it (apparently even Nico doesn't have the tab for it o_0).

      So instead I did CaramellDansen. It's done in a sort of 'rock' style with cool funky drums that would be impossible to play in real life without at least three different drum players. Hopefully I haven't failed terribly at the mixing. :\ Those pesky instruments all want their own solos.

      Wow, I haven't actually journalled in a while, as I've been pretty busy with various uni assignments, work and life in general. Oh and my newest MMORPG addiction, Rappelz. It's about the same level of suck-you-in-ness as WoW (I think), but it's free to play. The community on the server I play on are generally pretty nice and my guild (Red Skies) is kick-awesome. If you want to join me I play on the Salamander server as 'Saryah'

      Well I should probably stop doing what I do best (procrastinating that is, not journalling [goodness knows I'm pretty horrible at keeping that up*]) and finish writing my 1000 words on the wonder of computers in music production.

      *Yeah, yeah TWSS.

    • FU! / What don't people understand...

      10 years ago

      SMAD Come see Lazer Team in R

      ... about no random friend requests?* Though I guess I'm going to get a few because...

      I'm a featured user today!

      Though the only reason I knew was because a couple of people had messaged me saying congrats... Seriously, my RT bookmark is for my own profile page, because the News/RT Home (as well as the Comm Stats) page never loads for me the first, second, or 25th time... always takes so many refreshes if I want to look at it.

      Heh it's lucky I logged in today as well because I have been soooo busy with assignments it's not funny. This is first time in weeks I've really had a spare moment... I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now. smiley0.gif

      And I would like to thank everyone who has/will congratulate/d me. <--(Because I'm too lazy to reply to each person separately, and because I can.)

      * It's funny that they friend me, because if they really were interested in me from following the FU link to my profile, they'd either message me, or even watch me... neither happened.

      EDIT: Woah! The Monkey Island Remake! AND episodic adventures, Tales of Monkey Island! It just keeps getting better and better! If you also like Monkey Island join this group.

    • Job! / I've lost count

      10 years ago

      SMAD Come see Lazer Team in R

      YES! *

      I got the job at David Jones!
      It's a department store and the one I'll be working in, is in the middle of Brisbane City Centre, so it's huge. *
      I'll be working in the Homeware & Small Electronics department selling things with my awesome selling ability.
      Orientation is next week. smiley0.gif

      Aaaand, I've lost count on the fire-alarm game... I'm pretty sure East Tower is up by one, which means we in West Tower are winning. It's been more than 15 each, so I'm kinda over getting up at early hours because some idiot can't work a toaster correctly.

      * Yeah, that's what she said.

    • I'm not dead yet / AUNTY! / LAN

      10 years ago

      SMAD Come see Lazer Team in R

      Okay, I haven't posted in a while due to uni work attempting to kill me.

      So first of all... WOOT I'M OFFICIALLY AN AUNTY!

      His name is Aden and he's sooooooo cute. Looks just like his dad. smiley0.gif Can't wait to see him this weekend.

      Next up, whilst procrastinating, I finally finished reading the entire archives of the RvB Slash community on LiveJournal (been at it for about 6 months). So I finally wrote my very first fanfic ever (I didn't want to post until I had read the archives [yes strange compulsive me]). It's over here if you'd like to read it. I am warning you now though, it is slash, so if you don't like that, then don't read it.

      Well I guess I should get back to the grindstone. Can't wait until June when all of this will be over.

      EDIT: I almost forgot about the LAN party! It was a while ago now, but it still roxxored boxxorz. I am now in love with DoTA and Tower Defence (especially Pokemon edition.) smiley12.gifsmiley12.gifsmiley12.gif I also kicked butt in F.E.A.R. using nothing but dual pistols. Unfortunately we didn't get to play UT3 or TF2, and we played waaaaay too much CoD4 (I didn't really fancy it for some reason.) But in summary: Best. LAN. ever. Of all time.

    • Happy Birthday...

      10 years ago

      SMAD Come see Lazer Team in R

      ... to me.

      Yay birthday today, too bad I had uni classes all day. Although, they are my favourite classes (music and web design) so it's all good.

      Headed back home for the long weekend/birthday celebration, and my older sister's baby is due in a couple of days, so chances are that I'll be there. smiley0.gif Can't wait to be an aunt. smiley1.gif

      Also happening this weekend is a big LAN party one of my hometown friends is throwing. Awesome luck I'm going to be in town for that as well. Games we'll be playing: Team Fortress 2, Counterstrike: Source, Unreal Tournament 3, F.E.A.R., Warcraft III, Halo, Left 4 Dead and Gears of War. Only a little disgruntled that Half-Life 2: Deathmatch isn't on the list because, although I used to rock at it, I'm a little out of practice now... come to think of it, uni has killed most of my game-playing time down to almost nil. smiley4.gif Oh well.

      Of this list I'll be trying Gears of War and Going 2 Die Left 4 Dead for the first time. Wish me luck in "Sausagefest Ohn!ne". smiley8.gif

    • It's So Raven / Lots of Assignments

      Woo! Got drawn by RavenAdonis today.

      SMAD49f6dfa79cc6d.jpg

      And I've currently finished my first websiting assignment, which used HTML and CSS only. Onto my second assignment, in which I can use fun things like Flash and JavaScript. smiley0.gif I'm also doing another musical composition, possibly piano and harmonica based. And two more huge assignments... one of which will involve filming and editing, and another that will required all my previous visual arts training so far (I'm not too confident with my design-y, artsy skills just yet).

      I'll be glad when the semester's over. smiley1.gif
