First day of school today (yesterday, technically). I got to spend the entire day almost sleeping my way through meeting after meeting after meeting. Lots of changes to the school and school structure, and another handful of very subtle inklings that music just isn't on their list of things to care about.( Ahh, bollocks.Collapse )
Time for jolly stuff. I'm sick of writing about, erm, unjolly stuff. Let's see...
Had a fantastic holiday! Went to Margaret River with the love of my life and spent a total of around 12 hours over the week sitting in a great big spa. Ate chocolate, cheese, deer, berries, and a miscellaneous pasta dish from a restaurant which must have been having an off night. Plus I got to go to Smith's Beach three times! I didn't even get too badly burnt.
Saw my folks and their new block of land. I'll never understand how they can afford places like that after taking care of me, but somehow they can! All I know is they've certainly earned it.
Rounded off the holidays with a lot of games for my mad laptop. I finally got around to playing Quake 4, which is fantastic. One of the few games I've played that's actually scary, and when I say scary I mean 'Oh my god, this is a really creepy story line and I'm nervous to be in the middle of it' scary, not '*GASP* what was that? Oh, it's over now' scary.
Final Fantasy XIII is coming! Around March some time I think. I saw some copies in an abstract gaming shop in the middle of Perth, and my brain almost fused before I realised they were in Japanese. I swear I almost didn't care.
Ahh, and today I spent $1100 on music software. Sibelius 6 kicks! Though not on 64-bit Vista, where it keeps forgetting that its already loaded the instrument sounds and DOESN'T NEED TO DO IT AGAIN. I also secured a copy of Reason, which is working its merry way over here from somewhere in America and should be here next week. Maybe I'll dig my old MIDI keyboard out of the storeroom, have fun with cables, work out how to interlace Sibelius and Reason, and then do some real
I guess I should try to get some sleep, it being 12:40am on a work day.
