*sneaks in*
Long time no see guys.

I know I know I said I'd post new photos months ago, well now I finally have!
I finally sat down in from of my Mac, opened Photoshop and worked through some photos. True I still have manymanymanymany more to do but at least I've started.

But I am very happy to be back!!
And hopefully I'll be back for now for a long time.

I have a doctor's certificate, really I do.

So I have around 100 photos, to sort through (minimum) and upload here. But TAFE just likes to get in the way and control my life. So... new photos coming a.s.a.p. I promise.

best. movies. ever.
Did you know that on facebook, you can scroll downright to the bottom and in the left hand corner it says "copyright facebook" and then the language?

Yes that's obvious but see you can click the language and if you speak english... you can change it to "english (pirate)!!!!!


*clears throat*

Yes umm so my official language is now English pirate and it's the best thing evah.


Try it.
Many of you don't know that over the past 5 years or so my cousin Emily has been fighting with cancer.
Well, the fight is over now.
Em is gone.
She left around 10pm on Thursday the 30th of April, 2009.

I don't know what to feel i don't know how to act. I'm on autopilot.
I feel numb, sad, unsure, even a litte happy that it's over.

Em: a loving person, strong, caring, always thinks of others first, an inspiration.
Why she had to be taken i don't know. I don't know why she deserved all of this. I don't know why her family, including me, deserved all of this.

She was 20 years old.

I love you.
I miss you.
Em, you are an inspiration.

How are we all???

Over the past few months I have been in a bit of an art slump. I haven't wanted to take photos and my surroundings have been uninspirational.

Now I find that I have started at University and I am loving it! I love the classes, I love the lectures, I love the setup, everything.

And so, as you have seen, I am posting pictures again. I am happier and taking more photos while also going through the pile with a collection of dust on it.

So I guess I'm saying keep an eye out for new stuff, cause I am feeling very happy and inspired by you all!

We just had an earthquake 0_o

that is the first one i have ever felt, who ever heard of an earthquake in the south-east of melbourne???

anyway it lasted for about 10 seconds or so* and was strong enough for the entire house to be shaking, i thought it was all very odd my cat seemed to think it was too :P My brother on the other hand was a little scared, but he's ok now.

*apparently is was more like 3 mins *shot* goes to show how much attention i payed to it :P

anyway no damage that i'm aware of here or anywhere else but i could be wrong it did only happen about 4 minutes ago.

A quick update for you all, i have started uni and classes and projects are now taking up a lot of my time. So i will update with photos when i can, i should be doing a shoot next thursday the kicker being i'm getting out the old film SLR, it's practice for photography class (you know focus, aperture, ISO, the basics).

Hope you're all well and having a great time doing whatever you're doing!

...Sort of anyway

First of all i say thank you to all of you who view my art and who comment, fave etc. You really do make my day :hug:

I will be spending a lot less time on here, life has picked up speed again i'm at university now 3 days a week (well half days for classes plus any extra time i spend there researching, doing assignments etc)

So less time for me to spend but i am doing a photography class and an animation class for the next 12 weeks so perhaps you'll get to see some stuff from that :)

The fires are still going down here, i can not wait for autumn to come, then the weather will cool and the rain will come and the fires will go out, giving a much needed reprieve to our firey's and all of those who have been affected plus all those that could be affected.
the official tally of lives lost is now sitting at 189.


Not many of you are aware of where i live and so i thought i would post this sort of as a way of saying that i am safe.

I live in victoria, australia.
to be more specific i live around the gippsland area.

This summer, in particular yesterday (Saturday the 7th of February) has been the worst bushfire season victoria has ever seen.

We have fires raging across most of gippsland as well as all over the rest of the state.

as it is the closest fire to me is around 20km away.
i have never felt so sad as i have today when i found out that one of the camps i go to every year has been burnt down and that 80% of the town it was in is now gone as well. 5 people lost their lives (but this has not officially been added to the tally yet).

I am safe, but i urge you all to pray for those who aren't.
Pray for those who have lost family and friends, pray for our safety.

So i just discovered "Repo! The Genetic Opera"


it is just fantastically brilliant!

It has officially been added to my list of musicals that i love/would love to perform.
yes i sing.
don't ask.

I am currently addicted to the song "Zydrate Anatomy".…

Google it, Youtube it, LOVE IT!

Now i command thee to go forth and adore this masterpiece.

maybe i'll give you the list sometime...

so i finally got up the courage to tell all you guys not to expect anything new, that my photography was on a mini hiatus, that i just wasn't motivated.

Well i do that and then what do i do on the weekend? i pick up...


oh and the camera xD

but i went away for the weekend to a beautiful place called Walhalla and i was lucky enough to be inspired and was motivated to take pictures.

So all i needed was a change of scenery. i mean i guess that makes sense because i find my own surroundings here at home rather dull and un-inspirational.

So new stuff tomorrow i hope with a mix of old and maybe even some traditional work.

Oh and i find out if i got into any universities tomorrow so pray for me.
please and thank you.

I didn't get any offers this round unfortunately. All i have to do now is wait for the second round  on the 5th of feb and if that falls through there's 3rd round on the 15th of feb.
hopefull one of those will give me some options.
ok so i tried to post this whole rant thing which you guys probably wouldn't have read anyway so its ok :)

the short version is that my photography is on a slight hiatus, i just haven't wanted to pick up my camera lately.

But i am NOT on hiatus, i still check DA, i still reply to messages and comments etc etc. That and i've been doing more traditional things like my jazz picture.

So there are some photos for me to put up eventually, but after that i don't know when you'll see some new things.

Love you all, and thank you. You all mean a lot to me. This is why i bow to you all.

To Do List:
* Put Up Photos
* New ID - 75%
* Get a job
* Finish Anna's "thing" (tis a surprise)

Firstly i say thank you for the 1000 pv's

ahh so we have come to the end of yet another year and now it is time to make all those promises we never keep, to reflect on all the mistakes we have made...

but most of all...

we look back on all the joy and happiness we have shared with those around us during the year.

i have had some great times this year, but along with the good i have had the bad but then what is bad if we do not have something better to compare it too?

i leave you with that thought until the new year.

So whose going to a party then?

  • Playing: FFX &amp; FFX-2

that's the magical number that my entire 13 years of schooling has come down to.

considering it's out of around 100 i feel like absolute shit.
I passed yes but it doesn't give much consolation to know that.
See from what my teachers had been telling me i thought i would get around a 65 maybe a 70 easy but no.
The way the government decided to standardise things saw to that little bit of hope and made sure it was crushed.

So let us hope that i get into uni because if i don't, i don't know what i'll do. I'll have to find a full time job and try to get in the next year or something but i really don't want to.

I WANT to go to uni.

</end sob story here>

In other news....





love you all!

hey :wave:

i know i know

i've been back for ages.

sorry :blush:

i have video footage of alot of it including drunken dancing and stunts and what we call "The Cup".
definition of "The Cup"
A drink consisting of whatever is on the bench (of the liquid variety). In one particular case, 9 different types of alcohol were mixed into one glorious drink. These included Jim Beam, Strawberry Cowboy, Absolut Vodka plus many more.

every person who attempted "The Cup" ended up stumbling around for a few hours and slurring words until the inevitable happened...
It was NOT pretty, HILARIOUS yes but NOT pretty.
Especially funny the next day when they had their massive hangovers.

so yeah umm i get my results tomorrow (the 15th) eeek my whole schooling put into a single number...

umm so i'm gonna play Sims all day and try not to think about it and panic. I PLAY GOD ON THAT GAME! lol it's amazing, i control every aspect of their lives, kind of a scary thought but provides lots of amusement xD

what else? i may have a job soon (hopefully, fingers crossed)

Oh and that interview i had at the VCA? well i thought it went well but apparently there were better people (which i'm not surprised about) and they have said that there isn't a place for me in 2009.
But that's ok, the course didn't look that great but the campus was so nice... it had a tree and vine covered ally thing with peoples drawings/paintings all over the walls and it had benches to sit on... such a nice relaxing place.

Anyway i just have to hope now that my ENTER is good enough. I am really worried because i don't think i did that well on some and i know i did horribly on some.

so after monday (the 15th) i will be going through photos i took both before schoolies and after schoolies and i will post up the ones that i believe are good enough.

Thanks for sticking with me!

leaving tomorrow for Inverloch for one glorious week of booze, partying and friends =D
Yes that's right schoolies! :w00t:

So i promise not to die, i might even get a chance to take some photos or something if i'm lucky

I had my very last exam from 9-10.45 am on tuesday the 18th of november and then that afternoon i had my interview with the VCA which i think went pretty well.


now don't get too busy while i'm away please? i mean there's no where down there for me to check messages and i am dreading coming back to 1000's of messages here and in my email but it will all be worth it.

love you guys and see you next week!

i needed to get the last journal off the front page xD

i just read through it again (hadn't looked at it since i wrote it), i realised just how much i was rambling and i laughed so hard :P
haven't deleted it, it amuses me xD

anyway (i love that word), i have one more exam then i'm done and i have my interview at the VCA tomorrow and i'm really nervous cause i'm meant to know about contemporary art culture and i don't know if i do :S

so yeah.

Wish me luck?

  • Drinking: (was): vodka &amp; OJ, Pulse (green x2, blue x1/2)

well it's 2.21 am

and i don't know exactly why i'm writing this... i know i'm waiting to sober up a bit before going to sleep.

i had an 18th just over 2 hrs ago.

I think i'm a tad drunk? i'm not sure. how do you know if your drunk? i mean i know your meant to be able to tell but how do you know? your either too drunk to notice or your not drunk right?

i don't think i've been drunk before but i think this is the most i've ever drunk except for one occasion.

accroding to the "R U Pissed" website ( ) my BAC is around 0.1 to 0.17

which means yes i was pretty drunk at the party but i didn't feel it. maybe that's how you know your drunk, when you can't feel it anymore.

ANYWAY. tell me (if you can) your ideas on how you know your drunk. i'd be happy for the whole "you know your drunk when..." jokes as long as you put a serious bit too saying how you know when your drunk.

and as i type i'm making less and less mistakes so that's a good sign.

goodnight all, i won't be sleeping for a while yet :)
