A New Laptop. A New Beginning(?)

So as you may have gathered from the title I’ve got a new laptop... well sorta, I mean it is a laptop (or a notebook for all the trendy kids) but it’s yet another hand me down although it is slightly better than one (sorry bro) although I don’t see myself playing any games in public in the near future. Strangely enough this is perfectly fine by me as all I really wanted this for was to type with, and that just seems within the capacity of this machine.

So will this mean more updates on the blog??? Possibly but I can’t promise anything at this time because life still is incredibly busy, and sadly things like this blog and my podcast have been put on the backburner whilst I’m plowing through various other things, mostly my duties as Media Co-ordinator for Perth’s Allied Costumers. I sadly can’t go into too much detail, mostly due to being sworn to secrecy on some potentially really awesome stuff, but if we can pull these things off it’ll be incredible and I’ll try and get on it here as soon as possible.

I must admit this has been a little disheartening, especially as I’d like to make a go of some of these things and hopefully use them to further my own personal goals. It’s not a complaint mind, compared to years past this has been some of the most fulfilling work I’ve ever done and I can’t say I’d change that for the world, but I must admit the only downside is that I’m constantly worried about money, more specifically for little I’ve got, how little I get (and about to go down, fuck you Abbott), and how much goes into things I do. I’ve been saying for a year or so now that I really need to get paid for what I’m doing, because most of the time I work more than I would if I had a 9-5 job and I don’t get any breaks, no weekends, and no holidays.

Anyway enough of being a downer, I’m trying to be more positive and dammit I’m going to try as much as possible. Hopefully after Supanova and all the associated issues and stresses that come along with it, I’ll be able to start on some of my own personal projects, so more to come.
