this evening i am preparing for my economic SAC tomorrow (well right now i’m on break with choc-chip cookies while on tumblr) going well so far - its only 7 ‘short’ answer questions to do but my teacher’s idea of ‘short’ answer is leaving a page and a half of line space to answer… that’s NOT short! I’m not stressing though economics is my most interesting subject as it involves current events/issues on Australian government which is good to know and relevant. It just means I should always be up to date in news before every class - i try to.
wednesdays are always a killer - i always seem to be so tired after coming back from my multimedia course @ TAFE. It used to be fun (last year) but after the repetitive lessons on the program Flash and my mood disordered teacher who is friendly at first but when i ask for help on something he gets mad and makes you feel so awful that you wished you never asked! Which is why i suck on Flash.
But today i was excited to know we were to start on a new program. YES! Only to find out that the program is similar to Flash in the sense its still animation… ASS!…I’d rather work on still images and do illustrator tasks because i find it more fun to use and very useful. I use it at home to create random work - when i have the time and energy, which isn’t often.
Well i feel like im complaining in this post too much - onto more happy things!! :)

The band’s set to kick off its live Aussie debut in Perth on December 6 before making its way around the country playing arena-size shows in every city, eventually wrapping up in Brisbane on December 19.
The ever-expanding British virtual act’s 2010 delivery Plastic Beach debuted at the top of the Australian charts and reached position two in the U.S. and across the U.K.
In addition to releasing a highly acclaimed third record this year, the band’s also been busy headlining major international festivals including Coachella and Glastonbury.
Dreamt up by music guru Damon Albarn and animator Jamie Hewlitt, Gorillaz is a multi-genre quartet includes the flighty and enigmatic singer/keyboardist 2-D, the mysterious and irreverent bassist and the brains of the operation Murdoc, 10-year-old Japanese martial arts expert and guitar wiz Noodle and the eloquent yet unstable Brooklyn-bred drummer Russel Hobbs.
Every Gorillaz album has been a wild journey and their live shows are expected to be no different.
Set to reel off a variety of tracks spanning all three albums, (Gorillaz, Demon Days and Plastic Beach) this epic arena tour will feature a dynamic multi-media production including video animation, artwork and film – or as Murdoc says “A phantasmagoria of sounds, colours and assaults on the senses.”
“Long before we know ourselves,
Our paths are already set in stone.
Some may never figure out their purpose in life,
And some will.
There are a lot of us who are caught up in this hell we all live in,
Content with being blinded by rules and judgment.
We live in a world where it’s more okay to follow than to lead.
In this world being a leader is trouble for the system we are all accustomed to.
Being a leader in this day and age is being a threat.
Not many people stood up against the system we all call life,
But toward the end of our first ten years into the millennium we heard a voice.
A voice who was speaking to us from the underground for some time.
A voice who spoke of vulnerabilities and other human emotions and issues never before heard so vividly and honest.
This is the story of a young man who not only believed in himself,
But his dreams too.
This is the story of The Man On The Moon.”—In my dreams- Kid Cudi. (via ikumitron)
The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace from that day. We cannot change our past, we cannot change the fact that people will act in certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing that we can do is play on the one string that we have and this strng is, Attitude. I am convinced that life is ten percent what happens to me and ninety percent how I react to it. And so it is up to you - We are in charge of our Attitudes.
