    • Work Experience

      11 years ago

      foxtwodf

      Well I'm doing work experience at MicroWay who distribute software all throughout Australia and New Zealand. On the first day at work, which was Monday, they let me start after lunch because we got back from the Netherlands late on Sunday. I worked my way through about 1/6th of their backlog of customer updates, doing something like this is not that exiting, but it has to be done!

      On Tuesday, I started using their accounting package, MYOB, which I found to be pretty hard but it was fun to do. Then after that I worked my way through a coupe of contact updates again, and then somebody gave me some leads which they had as to who downloaded demo's (I think they were demo's anyway) so I had to enter them into the database as well.

      Today I don't know what I'll be doing, but I'll take initiative and start working on the leads, and then through the backlog again. My supervisor was talking to me about computer magazines that needed to be sorted and filed alphabetically, so she might get me to do that instead. Right now I think the backlog is the most important job because they normally do it on a daily basis.

      For work experience you obviously need to get paid. The minimum legal wage for any person doing work experience is $5 a day, which I reckon is like child labour but anyway... I'm friends with the owner's son, and he's doing work experience too, and he called me to say that he's done already (started 10.30 and finished 3.30) and that he's going to try to get me like $10 an hour. I doubt I'll get that much but we'll see :)

      With the money I've decided that I'll get a sponsorship again. This is also due because of not being able to go to the Armageddon Multimedia Expo.

      Anyway... have fun :D

    • Jet Lag

      11 years ago

      foxtwodf

      Well, I got back from the Netherlands on Sunday night, and I can tell you now that I had a good flight back.

      From Amsterdam to London in the Airbus A319 we could swap seats as there were only about 40 people on the flight. Therefore I took the overwing emergency exit seats as they have about 50% more leg room than all other economy seats.

      Down at London there was a massive cue for Terminal 4 right as we stepped out of the gate that we arrived at. We only had to wait about 30 mins before they called a fast track for our flight :D
      London security is a bitch as well because you have to take your shoes off as well. So after we'd gone through security, we looked at the departures board to find out our flight was on final call so we walked to the departure gate only to find a massive cue. I guess everyone was late.
      When it was my turn to get on the aircraft, my boarding pass was declined so they checked the computer and found that I had been moved to an exit row, which I've been wanting for all my life because I'm tall and need the room. So I thank Qantas for their efforts :D.
      On the actual flight from London to Hong Kong I started off watching Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, (hadn't watched it yet) which was pretty good. Then after that I watched Die Hard 4.0 (hadn't watched that yet either) which was like nothing I'd expected.
      I also watched a documentry on the tallest bridge (in Fance) and the Airbus A380.
      The food was good, I had the chicken for my first meal, and the continental breakfast.

      The stopover at Hong Kong was good, only 1 hour, but the bad thing was that I couldn't access the internet (it was too slow and the connection timed out :() but Hong Kong gets credits for it's Free WiFi access :D

      The flight from Hong Kong to Melbourne was good, there was a Dutch flight attendant sitting by us. I slept for most of the flight, and I watched TMNT on my Creative Zen Vision W which was an awesome movie :D
      The food was good as well on this flight. I had the steamed fish for my first meal, and the Soy Chicken for my second meal. The aeroplane food is pretty good, you get to know whats good and bad when you travel a lot.

      Arriving in Melbourne, getting through customs was easy with pretty much no line. Normally there's about 30-40 mins waiting but now it was about 5! Due to the wait, we had to wait for our bags for around 30 mins anyway so there was not really a difference. Going through quarantine was quite alright as well. We declared food but they didn't really check up on it. I was amazed that they let me take the Cannabis Lolly Pops (THC free) that I bought in Amsterdam :O

      So yeah, overall a good flight but jet lagged now so I'm up at 3 in the morning. Should get some sleep before work experience though. I'll post about work experience in another journal.

      EDIT: I think the total flight time is over 23 hours... Mum and me normally call it 1 day.

    • Armageddon Multimedia Expo volume 2!

      11 years ago

      foxtwodf

      Well I found out yesterday when I asked for mum's credit card that I won't be able to go to the Expo :(

      Now you might ask why and I'll tell you. There's the Moto GP on down at Phillip Island, and we're leaving for that Friday night or Saturday morning. I want to go to both really but it's impossible and we've already got tickets to it too.

      So anyway, please remember that if you are going to the expo, visit the Caboose Restaurant + Bar, located in the City Square, to either have breakfast, lunch or dinner. Maybe you can ask Gus and Nico to come along with you?

      Anyway, I wish you all the best and someone better tell me how the expo was, because it really sucks that I can't go to it.

      What I'l proably do instead is get a sponsorship again soon... when I get back from holidays.

      Rules:

      You ask a question, I'll answer it and add it to this post.

      Q: Who would you rather punch and why: Tom Cruise or David Spade? Be honest.
      A: Umm I don't really know David Spade but on wikipedia he seems like a cool guy at the start of his career, but at the end he starts to become a prick. He doesn't even attend his friends funeral because he "could not be in a room where Chris was in a box." So yeah... I'd rather punch him because he's a prick now :P

    • About Me

      foxtwodf

      My name is Kevin, I'm 16 years old, 193 cm tall. I was born in the Netherlands and I moved to Australia in 2004. I still speak Dutch OK, writing is worse because I really have to think about what I need to write. For year 7 and 8 I went to Upwey High School, then mum decided I had to go to a private school so Haileybury College it was.

      My current subjects are:

      Business Management Units 1&2
      Information Technology Units 2&3&4
      VET Electronics Units 1&2
      VET Dance Unit 1
      Mathematics VCE Entry Level
      Media and Communications Units 1&2
      Science VCE Entry Level

      I have a big passion for flying, but I haven't been flying lately because the guys at CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority) are being dickheads.

      I am also a member of 417 (City of Bayside) Squadron, Australian Air Force Cadets (AAFC). I hope to stay in the AAFC as a cadet for as long as I can, and then maybe become a staff member later in life.

      My goal in life is to ultimately become an Airline Pilot, it is going to be very hard because I will most likely have a restriction on my license which means that I have to undergo medical examination at least once a year, so it is being predicted that not many airlines are going to look at me. However, due to the shortage of pilots I hope to get in!

    • Australian International Airshow 2007

      12 years ago

      foxtwodf

      Well, I had to get out of bed at 6 am on Sunday in order to go to the show with the Australian Air Force Cadets (AAFC). Being a member of the AAFC gave me a free one day entry pass which saved me some money smiley0.gif .

      First off, we went into the careers hall, where we met an American Pilot who talked to us for a bit, he was nice smiley1.gif . Then we went on to talk to heaps of other places, and you just get loaded with free stuff.

      Then we went outside for a while, just in time to see the jet powered motorcycle. It had an after burn of like 3 meters for sure smiley0.gif .

      The fighters made HEAPS of noise, if you didn't block your ears you'd almost go deaf on the spot!

      There were also some of the more 'classical' aircraft which were also awesome. They were big too smiley7.gif .

      The aerobatic aircraft were awesome, they would go head on and just miss each other. The smoke was also cool smiley1.gif .

      Best thing would've been the grand finale, which was the ten sticks of dynamite. Aircraft would fly over and simulate a kind of battle, which included, as you can guess, ten sticks of dynamite being detonated after they flew past, which made it seem like they dropped bombs. The final blast was a wall of fire of like 50 meters which was awesome smiley1.gif

      Well, that'll be all for now, might edit later to add if I think of something else smiley1.gif

      Ciao!

      I believe the quote is describing the world in a future tense; in reality nothing lasts forever. So the bottom of the pail is always broken through.

      Yo. In case you haven't already, I need you to watch me for the contest.

    • bottom_feede

      Interesting look on the quote, but you either find the main point to simple that you didnt bother explaining it or youre coming at it from a different angle. Can you tell me more? Remember, it is not me saying this to you, it is you thinking it to yourself.

      I would have to agree that halo 3 is easier than halo 2, for a few reasons, mainly easier because its shorter. But also the enemy units are a lot weaker i found.

      You don't just add a word, you would say something that is the adjective, like if the word was stupid, George W., if the word was fast, a rabbit, if the word was green, Luigi or Master chief. Does that make it clearer?
