There should be rules about pain and holidays – ‘not allowed’ should be the rule.  And migraines should be completely out – even if too much sun is the cause [yes, I was in the sun].  Bug bites are almost a given though…

Went to Nature’s Valley – most likely the most wonderful place that I’ve been too.  I enjoy every moment I am there and I LOVE swimming in the river.  Even if L attempted to drown himself on several occasions.  He is an odd child – really!  He loves to run and throw himself onto the ground – this was even better in the river.  Only, sometimes he went under completely if it was deep enough – part of the fun really.

I got the complete Tintin animated collection – they are so cool.  As a kid, my sisters and I would go down to the library and agonise over which Tintin to take out – three cards was a serve limit on what you could take out; there were ‘choose your own adventure’ and Asteriskto consider as well.  Now kids can take out seven books!  But back to Tintin.  Aki-chan has started collected them so the boxset is a nice addition.  They are only 25 minutes but funny – Great Snakes! 😀  Ha ha ha…

Due to Xday, weirdness happened with manga which resulted in no manga last week so I tried Air Gear again because I like the art style [the panty shots are annoying though].  It’s an okay substitute – better than Shaman King which I stopped reading way back.  The story isn’t anything to write home about and it does have potential to be repetitive but I’m somewhat hooked now – I REALLY don’t need another hundred plus chapter manga to read… But I’m a sucker for action artwork – typical shounen artwork… sigh…  Though in my defence I can drop them if the story folds. 

Oh, yeah – the best gift I received was Akira 5 [YES!]

A moment of fright

I just realised I haven’t looked at the time for over three hours… Suddenly it’s the end of the day…

Having a 75% pass mark leaves little room for error [85% leaves even less] and when the programme won’t allow certain functions to complete leading to ‘wrong answers’, the room for error is smaller still so I failed but luckily I was allowed a free rewrite due to computer ‘issues’.  90% for MSAccess…  That’s higher than I got for MSWord [one point] and I use that all the time – so weird.  I have now finished all the computer tests 😀

Though there is no break – I have supps in January [two].  So after a break of a few days while I’m in Mossel Bay [reading set work books], it’s back to studying for exams and then Japanese starts again – no break this year.  This past year has been so crap for studying [related to other things] – tough stuff.  Next year I’m only taking half the modules; studying [and music] don’t come naturally to me and taking too many subjects is not good.  The results are dismal and failing – unacceptable!

I wonder if SWJ will come out on Friday; there has been nothing to say it won’t.  This week I’m wanting Bleach more than Naruto.

One of the cool things about the FFVII CC OST is that some of the FFVII OST tracks have been remixed and altered – it’s sounds awesome.  It is also cool because I like remixes of game tracks – good ones obviously eg.  OC Remix.  Some of the other tracks are odd though but I think this is because I don’t have anything to tie them to.  For example when I listen to Collapse [ICO OST], I immediately think of the castle but it is not so with CC OST. 

I think learning the new interface of a programme is more difficult than learning the programme from scratch.   I wouldn’t bother normally and would most likely fumble my through anything that I needed to do but I have to write tests on them and won’t have the time to look through menus and complete the questions on time.  Luckily most of them are MCQ [so far] and my only concern is MSAccess – it is one I actually have to relearn so maybe it will be easier [I think not though…]

The FFVII BC OST is very Bond-like.

Itaii desu, yo!

I never really understood RSI.  I knew it was a serious thing but now I have a vague idea of how agonising it must be.  I was at the ObsFest this last weekend and spend the entire weekend fanning myself – I did sell many fans because of this – but now my right upper arm is causing me much grief and lack of sleep and tension in my shoulder and neck.  Luckily, I don’t have to repeat the action so it will hopefully go away.  It’s annoying in that no matter what I do or don’t do, the dull ache is always there.  I also feel the beginnings of flu and am battling to stay awake.

On a plus side for some [like my sister] spending the two days in the sun means I’m no longer so pale.  I hardly recognise myself in the mirror but the itchy bumps from being in the sun only came out on the one arm and my back – the bits that got burnt.

Panado tables don’t work as quickly as fizzy Panado tablets.  It’s taken me almost a hour to put this together…

Okay, so the exam I was unsure of went down 😦  Now, I have to rewrite the stupid thing.

Edit:  does anyone know where I can get inline skate wheels?  I tried to skate the other day but the one wheels crumbled to nothing…
