All the random stuff, you know?

Melbourne Polytechnic Graduation 2018

What a fantastic night! There aren’t a lot of words to describe the feeling on Thursday night on the way home. The best I could summarise it as on Instagram was honoured. Not only to have been nominated and awarded the school of Engineering, Design and Construction’s Vocational Student of the Year, but to also […]

2018 Update Number Two

Days turned into weeks, weeks into months. I really let this stuff go didn’t I? Already falling behind on this thing so that New Years Resolution ain’t going well is it? Here’s an update on my 2018 so far… I picked up some more work, I’m now working across two departments at Melbourne Polytechnic. One […]

2018 Update Number One

Alright, I need to write another one of these things to get something else up on this blog since it’s been almost (or is it over?) a fortnight since I last updated it. So let’s goooooooo!It’s been a relatively low-key couple of weeks so I’m not sure I’ll have much to talk about on an […]

Resolutions

As a general rule I don’t set New Year resolutions so as to not be disappointed with myself when the end of the year rolls around and I haven’t achieved anything I set out to achieve at the start of the year. This year there is only one exception to that general rule.This blog.I aim […]

The 2017 Appreciation Post

This is one of those posts where I list things I’m appreciative of from the year that has been 2017 because I need to post it in 2017 for it to be valid or something… Is that actually the rule or not? In no particular order:Other than the first. The obvious people to start with […]

Randlings: Part 1

So this is my first “weekly” installment of what I’m coining Randlings (a combination of random and ramblings).I’ve been doing a lot of research into cars lately, I’ve never owned a car and only had my license for around 3 years. Driving had really been something I didn’t need when I turned 18. It remained […]

China Study Tour: The Way Home

I’ve just now (In November) realised that I don’t have a log for the journey home so I’m basing all of this on a bit of memory so I may miss a couple of minor things. We were up and moving early, we had to be on the road in time to make it to […]

China 2017: Day Eight

Got up early despite the overly comfortable bed inviting me to stay a while longer. Had to get downstairs for the buffet breakfast though so up and moving it was. The buffet was amazing. First opportunity for some western food in a while. I ended up with a bowl of rice krispies and cacao nibs […]

China 2017: Day Seven

Today was a bit of a quiet one compared to the rest of the week. We started with a trip back to Muslin Market as a few people (myself included) needed to pick up a few more souvenirs. Mine were mostly things I’d planned to get for others. We were only given around an hour […]

China 2017: Day Six

Started the day with a tour of the historical museum, learned about some of the artistic and cultural history of China as well as the evolution of the written Chinese language. We also had a calligraphy session where we learned to draw some Chinese symbols. One that was the basis of all symbols, and one […]
