Dear WordPress …

If you guys and gals could work on a desktop app that doesn’t crash every ten mintues, we desktop bloggers would very much appreciate that. And before you reccommend using the website through a browser, I’ll add that for whatever reason, Vivaldi doesn’t seem to like the WordPress site in general. Figuritively speaking, of course.

Thank you very much!

Surfin’ at a snail’s pace.

You know, my girlfriend used to think that I was being funny about the whole ‘Australian internet is worse than Thailand’s’ thing. She genuinely thought that our internet, being a developed nation and all, had an average internet speed that was at least bearable.

And when she got here, she found out how wrong she was.

Almost three years have passed since the National Broadband Network plan was thrown into the public eye, promising fibre/copper wire hybrid broadband lines that would allow customers to download to their hearts content at speeds of up to 100mbps. But unfortunately this Aussie gamer’s godsend is yet to be fully implemented into all suburban areas within my state, my local area included.

Hell, I can’t even get Firefox to work properly with our current internet plan. Despite having an ADSL2+ connection, our maximum download speed appears to only be a severely gimped 220kbps. And if you think THAT is bad, you wouldn’t want me to tell you about our upload speed.

Yup. Life in Australia is pretty darn tough. Oh well. Looks like I won’t be Twitch streaming or uploading YouTube clips any time soon.

Through and Through, Back and in Blue!

Aloha!

First of all, please excuse the title. It’s the first thing that came to mind. You would think that after all this time, what with my complete and utter lack of posts and blogging, that I would write something a bit more relevant like “I’M BACK!” or “Hope I Still Have Followers!” or even “Dude, Where’s My Blog?”

The fact that I frequently wear blue nowadays might not sound relevant at all, but it DOES tie into why I have been absent. Or at least very loosely. Oh well, we both know that I like a bit of a challenge. So without further adue, let me give you the whole lowdown as to why I’ve been so utterly absent.

 

A Meeting in Lover’s Arrival

Some of you that follow me might’ve known that I am in a long distance relationship with a lovely lady from another continent. Well, just a few weeks ago, we had our first meeting after two years strong. That’s right! Two years of Skyping, screen sharing, FaceTiming and the occasional dash of online gaming culminating in an actual face-to-face meeting Down Under. ‘Two Weeks with the Waifu: In the Flesh!’ is what I would call it if it were a comic or a manga or something.

Never been more motivated or encouraged to wear blue clothing before, either. Tis the lady’s favourite choice of hue. Heck, I even bought a rocking denim jacket for the first meeting. I normally don’t like to wear blue but it’s kinda growing on me. I guess that makes me a True BLUE Aussie now, huh? No? That’s fine, I’ll show myself out.

So yeah, she came around. We travelled about. We went to a zoo where the Aussie animals all seemed to be either asleep or hiding. But if you went to the zoo to obseve the average Pokemon GO player, you would not have been disappointed. We certainly weren’t. The next step will involve my own trecherous expedition to the New World, that is, the United States. I’m all sorts of anxious and excited but that ain’t gonna deter me from setting out for a damn good holiday. At least I won’t have to learn another language!

 

ConGRADulations!

Oh yeah, speaking of languages that I don’t understand, academia. Yes? No, that was a pretty bad joke. Awful segue too. But the pun in the title should say it all for I have officially graduated from my tertiary studies with a diploma, a degree and a tear in my eye!

You’d think after doing two courses, one TAFE and the other from a university, that I would wanna maybe take a break or something. Maybe get a year off to my self before attempting anything else. But like they say, there’s no rest for the wicked on the count of my possible pathway of enduring further studies. That way, I can have TWO degrees. The metaphorical stuffed crust of any resume!

I seem to be running out of steam here. I will admit that I completely forgot about the blog altogether. But after remembering it in an ‘OH SHIT!’ kind of moment, I thought I would check out the News Feed and also make a post to kinda say ‘Hey, I’m not dead, nu-uh.”

No promises on a post anytime soon but I really do hope to get back into the swing of things between job searching, life planning and weekend partying. A cold one downed for every lovely follower!

Seriously, more than 130? I don’t remember having this many! Kudos and thank you!

Oh and P.S: I finally got that new phone. Posting on the go is probably easier than ever now. Can’t wait to read about what everyone’s up to!

 

Ta-ta!

A Little Late to the Party …

Yeah, so, I just made a pretty huge discovery.

apple-iphone-4-1
“I rocked one of these til it went outta style. Six years, give or take.”

Not that it should be considered as such, since everyone, their mothers and their dogs seemed to know about this one particular feature. But you know that thing that you can do with your phone on SnapChat? The one where you’re taking an ordinairy selfie only to have your recently captured picture self spewing rainbows? Well, yeah. That’s a thing. I only found out about this a week ago at a party.

“But Dandy, ya numbskull!” You wail, gork and snort. “This feature has been present in SnapChat for AGES! How could you only find out about it now?”

And that’s a darn good question,  Mr/Mrs/Ms. Disembodied Voice over the Internet! But the answer is the real kicker.

It’s one word. ‘iOS7’

… well, that’s not really a word. More like an acronym. But yeah, you get what I mean.

App Crash Landing!

Hey. Just posting to say that I will be … well, posting soon. The app keeps crashing so until I can actually access, finish off and post my draft, I’ll just leave you with this Western poem!

 

The burning sun, she blazes fiercely. 

Scorching all it touches. 

A genocide of crop; the roots decrepit. 

The cotton shirts drenched in sweat. 

Mountain trail, where does it lead? 

Weaving like an adder through sun kissed lands

Towering canyons, a sunburnt Olympus. 

The eagle’s home; the amber apex.  

Space cowboy
“Cowboys were bascially the knight errants of the Wil West anyway. Same goes for Space Cowboys.” 

Later!

Silly Social Media Slip Ups

listen-to-radio-old-man
“Would you just listen to this noob?”

Hey, don’t beat yourself up about any past social networking blunders you might’ve made.

This one time, I was trying to notify my followers of a new video via direct messages and instead, I accidentally made a group conversation between all three hundred of my followers at the time. Pretty much everyone left shortly after the conversation was made. God, I felt like such a clumsy cucumber. I think I even lost followers because of it, too.

What about yourselves? Have you ever found yourself making an inexcusable error on the Twitters or the Facebooks?
