Hi! How are you? It’s been a while, probably because it’s been quite boring in my life lately. All I’ve been doing is work, sleep, TV and playing some games – Real Racing 3 and Contract Killer: Sniper. They’re both the so-called freemium thing, where you pay real money in exchange for gold coins to progress faster. Sigh. I’m not paying real money to get coins for a game. I’d rather pay up front for the full experience rather than pay bits here and there, which adds up quickly.
The Formula 1 finished on Sunday. I’m sad. Summer is going to be long, hot and without the F1 it’ll drag on even more. I really love watching it, but as I’m not a Lewis Hamilton fan, can’t say I enjoyed this season more than the previous few. I hope the news outlets are right when they say Daniel Ricciardo will have a better car next year. It’ll be great if the season is more even amongst the cars. The last five have all been dominated by one team, so some variety is needed (also the cars need to up the volume). Daniel Ricciardo is my favourite, and he had a great season, but when you think about it, he only won those races because Mercedes fell apart. I don’t want to imagine if they’d won.
The bills have really hurt the past month. Car registration came the same time as the electricity bill, as well as internet and phone bills. Next week I think it’s just the internet bill so that’s okay. In the new year most of my domains come up for renewal. I’m going to dump a few. The only one I’m having trouble with has an email address attached to eBay, but I can’t change it. eBay says they’re sending out a confirmation for the new address, but it never comes through. Ugh!
Edit – Just tried again, it worked! Hurrah!
And Jetstar. They just had another 2 for 1 Japan sale on. I missed it, but come next time, I should have some money for it. I definitely want to go again, just need to find somebody to go with. It’ll be so cool to not go solo.
What else is the haps? Work is doing an S theme for the Christmas party. I’m not a fan of fancy dress, so I’ll have to do something simple. I thought of getting a black skivvy, some frameless glasses and a haircut and go as Steve Jobs. That’d be the easiest, but where does one buy a skivvy as Summer is beginning? eBay only has some from China, I doubt it’d arrive by mid-December.
And that seems to be about it. As you can see, there’s very little happening in my life. I need a change. I love it here and don’t want to move, but there’s so few jobs around this area that don’t involve retail or telemarketing. Hmmm.
