So I'm not very good at sticking to my days of this meme; I will do day 05 later on today, and then day 06.
Yesterday I felt rather depressed; it'd been leading up for a few days; not sure what triggered it off; I'd been doing so well. Guess the unavoidable change of weekend plans for so long but especially having no job just got to a bit of a head. But thanks to Dad I feel stronger again now. I ended up breaking down to him yesterday afo and it made me feel a lot better to talk to someone. -- I'd been so bored as well. I'd thought about going out but it was pretty rainy yesterday.
Dad just came over to drop Heartly here for a few days and try and uninstall tripple-talk again but we couldn't find anything in device manager; will consult my expert friends again today as Dad's coming back tomorrow to help with that but also prob go to Forest Hill with me just to have a drink and catch up; it's been forth coming since he's been in Dubai for so long.
Anyway, the vet tells me that Heartly is overdue for her seniour cit checkup so off I go to make an appointment for Monday.
Oh also, Nan called me yesterday to inform me Great uncle Lindsay passed away Thursday from pancreas cancer (what Carol had). He was diagnosed with it a few years ago and was unfortunately told there was nothing that could be done. He was 72. His late wife Joy (believe it or not re the name) passed away in 89 from a massive stroke so at least they're together again (re my beliefs as oppose to the exact seventh day Adventist beliefs).
R.I.P Uncle Lindsay. I hadn't seen you for a while but will again when my time comes.

So yes, everyone is doing it, so I decided I might give it a go. i use to be an awesome writer, but unfortunately I have lapsed so much, mostly due to the fact I am unable to sit down and read a good braille novil as i use to so enjoy doing. So, following is the meme. Read more... )
Day 01 )
In other news, dad was just here and we both worked on reinstalling the Trippletalk drivers but that hasn't done anything. It's not the card itself as Dad took it out, cleaned it and put it back in. So I'll have to research this annoying problem further.

A song that I took from a tape I use to have called "The Kids Praise albumn".

This morning while reading my friends page, [livejournal.com profile] secret_spoken had informed us that one of her LJ friends [livejournal.com profile] 65redroses had sadly passed away. so I went to take a look at her user bio and found out she had cystic fibrosis; She was such a positive person. she got a lung transplant and it seemed to give her life back for a while, but then her body started to reject it and that's when she went downhill.
I've been reading through her LJ; she was so strong, and she seemed to live through all the love she was surrounded by from her family, friends and boyfriend.
I've never really gotten the full story from someone with CF so this has been very enlightening for me, not in a good way of course. :(
One of the things that touched me deepest was that she recorded a youtube vidio as she thought time was up for her in a matter of a couple of days after; turns out she did have a little extra time; but in this vidio, she was saying how she's not sad (didn't mention "scared" at all) but again how she loved to love and be loved. She had created "a wall of love" out of the many postcards and letters she'd received from friends and fans around the world.
One of the other nice things she did was have her friends, boyfriend and family members take it in turns to stay with her in the hospital each night, so she was never alone. -- I know if I am ever dying from an illness, that's how I'd want it to be as dying has always scared me the most; at least having someone with her 24/7 can bring as much comfort as can be expected.
So, R.I.P Eva; you sounded so strong, and my thoughts and prayers go out to your family, friends and boyfriend at this sad time. :( We'll all see you again!

I just feel i could scream at the world right about now! But this is probably largely because I've been a bit lapse with my meds for a few days for some unknown reason that I am angry myself about.
Despite this, yesterday, valentines day when I happened to be single once more and was scared I'd be at home all depressed, I had an ironically full day; infact, I was out the door at 8.30 AM and didn't open it again til about 11 PM.
After practically jogging to Blacky station yesterday morning to make the Glenwaverly bus, I was full on dripping with the humidity! woh it was bad.
I met up with [livejournal.com profile] brattier_brat on the 850 bus, and we went to our new church in dandenong. Was totally awesome and practically as soon as we walked in the door, we were met and made to feel welcome.
We spoke to the pasta's wife who immediately invited us to their Young adults group who meet once a fortnight on a Tuesday. Unfortunately I can't make tomorrow cos of the puter group; it sucks. If I wasn't doing the final bit of my audio games presentation, i'd skip it as I'm no longer secretary, not sure if I mentioned that in here.)
Anyway the church service we went to that started at 11 was extremely busy! The music is very modern played by a live band; drumkit, keyboard etc. We liked that aspect.
Once it was over, we spoke to another girl from the Young adults group before one of the head deakins kindly walked with us out to the bus stop just to confirm where it was. -- Church is so easy to get too.
We're told a lot of the young ones attend the 6 PM service so think we're both going to try that one next sunday.
Once back at Glenwaverly, Brat and I went to Moccajoes for lunch, then I caught a train back to Syndel to go back that way; by that time, it was four, so by the time I got back, headed into safeway to get nibblies for that night, I don't know why I didn't just stay in Glenwaverly or go back to J's place. Anyway, I bought some nibblies then waited a while at the bus stop and met up with J on bus when we made our way to E's!
We had an absolute fab night, and she let me feel the inside of a puter while she went over all the components that we were currently studying. she also showed me a power supply and pointed out the Molex, Berg and all the other conectors that are also currently being studied. So it makes much more sense to me.
I'm starting to think now that building a puter in my future, may not seem like a fantasy afterall.
We then had a lovely dinner over great conversation and heaps of laughs!
J and I caught a cab at about 11, when it finally decided to show up, Lol! Both E and J were falling asleep and I, who always usually is the first to fall tired at such get-togethers, felt wide awake.
I consequently didn't end up hitting the hay til 12.30; was checking email and all that jazz.
So, thanks to some cool friends of mine, I didn't end up spending an ounce of valentines day pining and alone. In fact, Brat and I were joking that as we were dining together on the day, we were each other's valentine! :) Lol hahaha! -- I looove my friends!
Though I'm still annoyed at the whole situation with the ex, again; again again again. *grits teeth*
OK all for now I guess. Ah, I got 100% on assignment 1, but as it was more to help the others who were having trouble finding things on the site and no actual course content, let's hope I can still keep up the top marks with the actual course content.
That's about all for now I think!

I've still got my old lovable Heartly here. I told Mum I didn't mind keeping her another night to give her a complete break; plus, of course, I naturally love having both my pups here, though I didn't have any food for her. So this morning was weird; after toiletting them both, I had to make them wait for their breakfasts; didn't think it was fair to feed one without the other, so, I saddled Joy up and we went to get some more supercoat for Heartly at safeway. Before this, since I'd just got up, I took a big drink of water to hopefully prevent any fainting feelings; it worked I'm pleased to say, plus the deep breathing that I did, Lol!
So when I got back, I fed them both.
I do have my employment appointment soon, but I have decided to cab it there, and then walk/train it back as I don't want to leave Heartly for too long; prob would have done that anyway though. Don't really feel like going as up til now, they haven't done a lot for me; all she does is talk to me and set goals; um, I have started to wonder what sort of disability agency they are? Wise (my old agency) market for their clients etc. I'll talk to her about that today. When I come back, I'll be applying for that job I really really want; told the gang jokingly that I'd give em cookies if they succeed in putting in a good word for me; however, I don't see why it has to be a joke if they do! This will be ideal! :)
I didn't end up going into the city yesterday; ended up a bit tired instead but there's always another time. [livejournal.com profile] brattier_brat and I have been talking about both attending church together; since I have wanted to go back, and she read about that, she has been talking about churches she's found. She told me she went to a modern-style one in dandinong, and that it was easy to get too on the bus, so next week, we'll go together; squee! As I said to her, it'd be so nice to go with a friend; never done that before. unfortunately due to my shyness in my younger days, I never really made friends in my sabbath school youth group years ago. Brat says there's people from her age to mine, so I'm very excited about that as I am pleased to say, i can make friends so much easier now! :) I kinda like the idea of branching out as well, instead of sticking to my local area.
Also, yesterday I found the remainder of the neighbours eppisodes from that english chap. they were in a different folder as they're better quality now. since I don't need the video and just the audio, I'll need to find a way of converting a whole decades worth quickly; into ogg or something. So I've been downloading months at a time with freedownload mannager. It is an awesome program, as I don't need to constantly set up the downloads after each file! :)
After I finish my job application today and am happy with it, i will continue reading chapter one of Ite 1. People seem to be racing ahead already, but there's no way I'm going to do that. I want to be able to at least wait til the lectures and ask anything I don't know first.
So, am going out to dinner with [livejournal.com profile] jordina Wednesday night, Friday brunch with [livejournal.com profile] salix_03 and [livejournal.com profile] monsqueak (if she's feeling better; sounds like she has got what I had during training with Joy sadly; it's a bitch of a thing; Had never been in so much pain with my glands in all my life.)
finally in loser news )
OK since i feel i've typed the house down, I'm off for now.

Well unfortunately I have not seen the iphone yet, as the optus shop we went to at forest Hill didn't have them; they said they will get them in about six weeks and even then I couldn't demo it.
oh, they were all very helpful though. There was one there but it was the older model; at least I got to see the size of it. I will just have to go to Chadston soon where there's an apple store.
Now i forgot to mention two things about Molly cat in her tribute. The first was her purr. It was no-where near as loud as LucyLu's, but it was very cute in that it was quiet and, it's kinda hard to explain; sort of a very quick in-out kinda style.
The other thing was, as she was a delightful tortus-shell, i use to always look at her as the contrast from black with white patches was appealing to my eyes.
I went to centerlink wednesday and registered with another employment agency in Boxhill, which puts me in good stead in case I don't get the current job back when i re-apply. Anyway, I do want fulltime without certain people who don't get on with me, so this is a good move. First appointment is Monday week. it could have been this Monday, but I am having orientation to the rod Labour arena ready for Doctor Phil on wednesday!
Also, I've been getting more into audio books lately. i figure if I don't, i'm just missing out on way too much!
One of the books I've been listening too is 90 Minutes In Heavin by Don Piper with Cecil Murphy; which is a very inspirational read.
From his heaven experience through to his recovery is just so uplifting and promising! I've not finished it yet, but I just wish i could meet this guy!
Been listening to other stuff too, and I love it!
Still stay right away from anything involving blood and murder, war, politics and History, but apart from that, it's cool as up til now, my rec reading was still pretty limittted.
Of course give me non-fictional history any day, but the fiction stuff is just not my cuppa tea.
And that's about all I have to say. I was disappointed I couldn't see the iphone today though; people I've spoken to swear by them! We (nan, who picked me up from station and went with me today), and I had lunch at forest Hill though, and also I got me some more chicken kievs, so all was not completely lost and wasted. Mum and i will go to Chaston for lunch wednesday week, so looking forward to seeing it then, and hopefully, i'll know a bit more about it by then.
So that's me for now.
