My On My Mind

The last week has been draining. Last Saturday night a good friend of mine over dosed on drugs. It was a terrible situation and one I will never forget and in fact has changed me and the way I think about life. In the end he was ok but we spent six hours in the hospital by his side while he got through it.

I have never taken any drugs like that and am glad now because after seeing someone be in that state its something that changes your life. He was very very lucky that night and it could have been a lot worse. Last night him and I spoke about everything that has happened and why it got to this which was really hard for both of us but needed to happen. Its a horrible situation, it really is but I think we are all lucky that its only this bad and we are not dealing with a friend who is brain dead or even worse. I don't agree with drugs but I guess they are a fact of life these days. Its just so hard when you see a friend like that.

That has ruled my thoughts lately and I have forgotten about most other things in my life. I did enjoy my birthday but it seems worlds away now. The girl and I, well we are still the girl and I and we are stronger than ever and doing well. We went to look at a few more houses today and got some great ideas about what we want but didn't see anything we had to have. We are really seriously looking to buy but cant find the perfect place. Its such a major step but I really cant wait to have something to truly call ours. Its going to be a challenge with a mortgage and all that jazz but that's life I guess. If you want to donate to me funds that would be awesome, lol.

Anyway its bed time for me and then its another week, another dollar and another 10 percent to the government. Byes

My Old 22

Now that I'm 22 I'm buying a house. The girl and I have been looking for a while but have found one we really like. Its a house that was built buy a couple but they have run out of money and there are a few finishing touches that need to be added to finish it off. A lot of the work that needs to be done in outside in the landscaping which is great for me because that fits in with what I do so its win win. Its still up in the air but the cogs are moving.

Our trip to Phillip Island was really good. We ate so much fantastic food and drank a lot of beer and wine and it was fun. The racing was pretty good on the Saturday but on Sunday there was a huge crash that involved a car rolling over right in front of us which was really cool. The only bad part was the drive home. After twelve hours in a car my arse was flat and I really didn't want to drive to work the next day.

My life has been really hectic since I got back. We went out Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. We started at the Ed and then headed into town. The night had an unfortunate end but that might have to be a story for another time. Such is life I guess.

My Trippy Birthday

So, I forgot to say that I was going away for the weekend. I left Thursday and got back Monday night and it was a really good trip, but more of that at a later stage. The more important fact is that it was my birthday yesterday and I feel old. I'm 22! Old.

I'm not in a talking, typing or thinking mood so I will be back tomorrow night. Byes

My Two Sides

The weekend was really good. I didn't work and the girl and I just chilled out. We went to the Royal Adelaide Show on Saturday which was really quite cool. The show travels all around Australia and has all the attractions from roller coasters to show jumping and cow judging. We walked around and looked at all the different animals and sights and ate hot dogs. It was actually more exciting than I thought it was going to be. The last time I went I was a lot younger so it was good to go again.

For the first time in a long time we didn't really have anything on for this weekend. No 21st's or any sort of party so it was a weekend to relax. I went to the Ed Friday night for an hour or two and hung out with some good people but Saturday night we just relaxed and watched the football. A good Saturday night in fact.

Tomorrow is going to be an odd day. Scientists in France are going to switch on a machine which will start an experiment involving firing protons together. This is the first time humans have tried this and many people have doubts over the results. It is the same reaction that started the "Big Bang" event and although they say it is safe it is still a bit worrying. I don't know what to think because all through history humans have triumphed due to guts and determination. Many people do not know this, but when they set off the first atomic bomb they did not know if its reaction would cause a continuous reaction in its surrounds and destroy the whole world. They went ahead anyway and this lead to one of the most amazing yet destructive forces we know. I guess this isn't the first time our race has tempted its fate but I guess it is just better publicized now. I have a science brain but It is still in the back of my mind. I guess we will all see tomorrow. If it all ends, I love you, I love you with all I am and I have had fun, I will kiss you tonight and when I wake up tomorrow I will kiss you again. Byes.

My Multi Talented Week

This week I have done every job imaginable. Everything from fixing steel reinforcement and concreting a garage to digging a 5 meter deep storm water soakage pit filled with ballast. That's one of the best things about my job; just about every day is different.

Apart from work not a lot has been happening in my life. We went out Saturday to celebrate a couple of 22nd's which was a really good night. I picked up my ticket to Slipknot who are coming in the next few months but I was devastated to find out that I didn't get a ticket to see Birds of Tokyo. I was really looking forward to them but I guess I will just have to wait. I also found out that calling someone from a concert actually has a name. Its called Cellcert and it has a definition. Crazy times we live in.

I found this photo and it made me laugh so there. byes.
