My Experience

This week so far has definitely been an experience. I am working for a guy to help him build a tilt up concrete warehouse. He asked me to help him because he doesn't know much about tilt up construction. I have come to realise that he really doesn't know anything about anything. Its been a struggle because I have ended up doing most of the work. Working for my dad is good because we both know what we are doing and the job gets done without making work for each other. No matter what this other guy does I have to fix it and its almost worth me doing it all. I have always believe that I would rather work for a bastard than an idiot. Working with my dad all the time is draining because we yell at each other and he is a bit of a bastard some times but it is bliss compared to working with an idiot.

At least the money is good. Bye now.

My First Day

As I said the other day I went and saw my friend Steve's band last Thursday and they completely blew me away. I played in a band with Steve for a few years before he moved on to these bigger and better things. Its amazing to see some of our influences in their new songs and it amazing to see how much more professional they are. We were only kids though.

Friday was Australia Day. If you don't know what Australia Day stands for then go to wikipedia and look it up. I haven't got time to explain everything to you guys, geez. A long time friend of mine, Smithy, is heading up north to become a diving instructor on the reefs and so he had a large party for his going away and Australia day. It ended up with a lot of people having a good time and enjoying the day. I got very drunk but didn't get sun burnt so that was a bonus.

Saturday was very much a recovery day. It was The girl and I's 9 month anniversary so we hung out together and had a pretty good day. We have been a bit distant lately so it was good to just relax with each other. Sunday was much of the same and it was really good. We really needed the time together.

Today I started a new job. Well kind of. I was asked to work for a bloke to show him how to make tilt up panels. The money he offered me was great so I said yes. Today was my first day, we poured the first panel and I really didn't do much. I showed them some things and showed them easy ways and he was happy. I have about a months work so its gives me something to do while my parents are away. It means I wont get a Holiday but the money is fantastic so who cares.

I thought I would just put up a few photos. The first is the lost show on Thursday night. Second is the front of the warehouse we just finished. That was taken when the floors were just finished and nothing had been done inside. The third is the steel work inside before the roof was put on.

This week is flat out again. I will work six days this week and I have decided to sell my ticket to the big day out instead of going because I will make good money if I work and I really only want to see two bands. I'm not that fussed about not going because I'm not that big a fan of most of the bands.

Go and check out The lost Show because they have some great music happening. Also check out Miratone who were the support band, they were great too. Have fun.

My Update

Well I had a massive weekend. I saw the Lost Show and it was nuts. Went to Smithy's house for Australia Day and it was nuts. Was very hung over Saturday and it was bad. Today was a recovery day but i ate to much pasta and ended up having a nap.

Just a quick update so I will write more tomorrow. Have fun.

My Easy Day

Today was a bit of a let down. I worked until 7pm last night and I was soo tired when i got home. Today was the exact opposite. I couldn't get any grout from a supplier so I really didn't have anything to do. With the grout I had a big day of work to do but without it there wasn't much I could do. I puttered around at the site where we are building the warehouse and then headed back to the yard to clean some things up. All pretty easy but it was great. Today was the first easy day i have had in months so it was nice to do, well, not much for once. I will be rushed tomorrow so that sucks, lol.

Tonight we are heading to the Kentish which should be fantastic because I am starving and so in the mood for a parmy. Tomorrow night I am heading into town to see a friends band, The Lost Show play so that should be awesome too. It will be the first time I have seen them play so it will be great. If you are in Adelaide come along too.

Bye now.

My Driver

This has been a rushed weekend. Friday night I went to a friends 21st which ended up with her being very drunk and very pukey by about 10:30, lol. It was fun though. I worked a long day Friday so I was tired as anything by about 11pm so I headed home. Friday night was also a first for me because I headed in and had tea with the girl at work. The girl has been working in bars and pubs for a while but she has gone back to working in the Women's and Children's hospital as a theatre orderly. She is at uni studying to be a nurse so it also gives her good experience. I took in KFC and we ate it and chilled out in the orderlies room. It was good and I think we will do it pretty often when she works late shifts.

I worked Saturday and it was a struggle. It has been hot lately but we had thunderous showers this whole weekend. We have been in drought for the last 18 months so the rains were great but it made it so humid it was almost unbearable. Working in hot whether is a struggle but its ok. Working in humidity is anything but fun. We poured concrete and i was drenched in sweat. It was gross.

Saturday night we headed to one of the girls friends going away parties. It was pretty cool because i got to meet one of her oldest friends and some of her friends that I know were there so we all had a bit of a chat. We only stayed for an hour or too then headed down to the bay to meet up with Tilney and Layno. Due to work and the heat and the humidity I was tired so we headed home early.

It has become a bit of a ritual that on Sundays the girl and I wake up late, eat way to much for lunch and then spend the rest of the day on the couch. Today was no different. We ate Noodle Box and while it was soo so tasty we ate way too much and I ended up falling asleep on the couch for about 3 hours. It was nice.

My parents leave Tuesday so this week is going to be pretty hectic. I may even have a party or two.

Have fun, Bye now.

My Birthdays

This year is the year of 21st birthdays. I was born in 1986 and many of the people who I went to school with were as well so we are all turning the big 21. The birthdays have started already and I have another one coming up tomorrow night. Its weird to see all of your friends hitting such a mature age and I think it will really stir my mind up when I too turn 21. I still have a few months to go so I should be OK.

I did a lot of driving today because we have a few different jobs on the go and they are on different sides of town. It gets tedious sometimes but I like driving so it was an pretty good day.

Bye now.

My Eat Eat Eat and Have Cake Too

I just ate the largest piece of carrot cake and damn it was good. I love carrot cake.

Last week was crazy with work and everything else that happened. I cant believe how slack I have been with posting lately so I'm going to have to make sure I post like every day. Last week was cause for celebrations because we finally finished building the warehouse we have been working on for the last 3 months. There are still a few things left to tie up but the main parts are finished. I was so damn excited. Its been a good job but I'm so glad I'm out of there.

I had a big night Saturday night which was odd because I haven't really drunk all that much for a long long time. It was great thought and i talked to a few people I hadn't seen for a while. Sunday consisted of the girl and I getting up at about 1:30, eating way to much KFC and then the day slowing down. We watched the cricket while sitting on the couch and then that was about it. We finally managed to get up to eat tea and head down the bay for ice cream with Tilney but apart from those highlights it was a slow day. We both needed it tho so it was good.

I have had some troubles lately and I just have to say that I love my friends so much and I thank them for putting up with me and being there for me. I love having ice cream with them and sometimes making them pancakes :)

This week is going to be another crazy one and I will probably be working Sunday because my parents go away next Tuesday for five weeks and there are a few jobs we need to finish before my dad leaves. I was looking forward to taking some time off while they are away but I think I have about 6 weeks work to do in the 5 they are away so that's a bummer. Might go to Tasmania with the girl though, just for something to do.

Well that's it I'm done. Have fun guys. Speak soon.

My Post

Wow its been nearly a whole week! Work has been killing me and I have also been going out a fair bit so I'm stuffed. Tonight I'm heading to Hally's 21st which should be fantastic.

For a change I thought I would ask you what you think I should write about. Let me know your ideas k.

My Night of Trials and, and.... and Drama.

Its hard to make everything go to plan. Saturday night the girl and I headed to one of her close friends, sisters 18th's. It was odd for me because I didn't really know any of the people who were going to be there and its always hard to be at a birthday of a person you don't know. I know a couple of the girls friends who were there but not as well as I would have liked. It bothers me because her friends are important to me but its really hard for us to see them.

So we got to the party and it went pretty smooth, its hard trying to maintain conversation with people you have only met a few times but I did alright and it was a pretty good night in the end. I get along well with two of the guys she knows so I just chilled with them for most of the night.

After the party we headed over to Sam's house and ended up playing cricket in his backyard in the dark. It was really hard to see the ball and in the end I think I only ended up making about 7 runs.

The night was done and we were driving home when I got a call from a friend. She wasn't feeling the best so I ended up going to get her and taking her home. We had a long conversation about a few different things and it made me realise a few things about friendships and relationships. It made me realise that sometimes it only take the smallest thing to disrupt a friendship or a relationship that you thought was rock solid. It hurt me a bit because it came as a shock but I'm sure things will be fine. Its just hard when you don't see things coming.

Have fun

My Breakfast

I just woke up and its 2:26pm. I don't know why I was so tired this morning but it just happened. When ever I wake up I'm always hungry and I just saw an ad for Hungry Jacks breakfast. In Australia Hungry Jacks have never offered breakfast and from the looks of the ad they probably shouldn't. It doesn't look very nice, lol.

All for now.

My Eve

Before new years eve next year I'm buying a Polaroid camera.

It was a great new years eve too, thanks for asking. I felt a closeness with an old friend who's friendship I nearly lost. I shared a few beautiful moments with my girl. I shared a few moments with a friend I hadn't seen for five months. I laughed like a girl a few times. I drank a few gin and tonics, a few beers but for a change was pretty sober at the end of the night. I spent a night with friends and that's all I could have asked for.

My night was spent at a friend of mines, cousins house. The party consisted of about 50 people and some ridiculously delicious food. We walked down to the beach at the stroke of midnight to view the fire works and in the end it was a great night.

I hope everyone had a great night and if you drop by let me know what you got up to?
