Well, I suppose it’s about time for a general-purpose post summarising things that have been done lately by myself, since I’ve failed to do that for the past few months (typical :D).
Exams seemed to generally go well, I suspect that I’ll be keeping the average that I went into the exams with (2 certain HDs, 1 borderline HD/DN and one borderline DN/CR), with my most confident being AI and my least confident being Chemistry. Only 10 days until the big result is known, and I’m mildly tense about it (as maintaining a strong GPA is a condition on extension study next year).
I’m now working on a more-or-less full time basis, which has been good so far — interesting projects, using the languages and systems that I like (I know of very few other places in Hobart that would be able to give me a significant project in C, which is a definite plus). More news on that as it comes to hand.
I went to see my third Whitlams gig on Friday evening, with Jack, Richard and Jen. All in all, the evening was quite good, and we ran into a few of my friends from School/Uni. HIghlights of the concert included: Seeing End Of Your World performed live, a very strong performance of You Sound Like Louis Burdett, and an encore that consited of Hobart’s favourite I Make Hamburgers (more sauce!), Happy Days (breaking my self-imposed bet that no songs from Stupor Ego would be played), and concluding the night with Gough (which was not at all controvertial given the name of the Band).
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, I went to see Australia vs Sri Lanka at Bellerive. Although the match turned out to be quite closely-fought, the three days that I managed to see were all dominated completely by Australia, with the exception of a couple of good innings from Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene; from an Australian point of view, it was nice to see Brett Lee get lots of Wickets, and see Michael Hussey get a century (especially since I told the Managing Director of his bat company in no uncertain terms that it would be good if he got out quickly due to his slow scoring at the onset of the match). Despite the Rain delays and the like, the Company was good, and am looking forward to the 2-3 ensuing one day matches this season that will be here ( and maybe a few games interstate too, depensive on my travel plans *cough*.
Well, that’s it for this post, expect to hear more from me in another indeterminite period of time!
