Oh the irony. Music preference can be a very powerful expression of self. So you buy an MP3 player to listen to it on the train (and inflict it on everybody else if it’s loud enough). But everybody has an MP3 player. Merely having one is conforming to a norm, even if you’re listening to death metal on it. INDIVIDUALITY CRISIS!!!

I'm back!

It’s been a long long time between blogs.


Aidan and I have been back in Australia for almost four months now, after being away for three months. We had the most fantastic holiday: lots of places, lots of new people, lots of fun, etc! I won’t go into massive detail; suffice to say it was amazing.


Since then, we’ve been working and studying and still rather having a bit of fun! Things are tough, of course: I’m not qualified for anything so my jobs are always low-paying, and Aidan isn’t finding work within his qualification just yet. But otherwise stuff is really good. We have a beautiful unit in a great spot, and we have four goldfish (Halley the comet, There’s the ugly fish, Do Not Feed the zebra fish, and Beward the leopard fish). We’ve done some volunteer work with CVA (Conservation Volunteers Australia) which is fun. All in all, things are trundling along as nicely as can be expected.
