My Weight Loss Journey

Before & after

It all started in high school. I stopped running around with me mates at recess and lunch like I did in primary/middle school and started playing chess in the library. This is also when I discovered me love for computers. Now there's nothing wrong with chess or computers, but I believe the amount of time I spent with them was what started me down the path of inactivity and weight gain.

I remember me Grandad once talking with me about me weight and scaring me with stories of health issues that ran in me family. I didn't reckon me weight was a big deal, even though me BMI said I was...

Melbourne (Drupal Downunder)

Melbourne panorama

In January 2011, Straya hosted its first major Drupal conference in Brisbane, Queensland. This year, 'Drupal Downunder' (aka DDU) was hosted in Melbourne, Victoria from the 14th-15th of January and (as usual) the Coffs Drupal team attended (Matthew, Ruben and myself).

The Trip Down

Matthew and I met at Coffs airport on the Thursday arvo and flew out together; first to Sydney, then on to Melbourne. This was really only me third time flying, so I'm still amazed at the view ya get from a plane flying high above the world. At one point I looked out the window and all I could see was an...

Birthday at the Cinema

The Cinema

In February 2002, for me 16th birthday, me family and I went to the cinema to see 'A Beautiful Mind'. Each year since then, some (or all) of us have made an effort to continue this tradition of celebrating me birthday at the cinema.

Part of the Puzzle

Puzzle pieces

I have a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle of a Giant Panda that myself and Mum been tryna put together for over a year now (possibly closer to two years). We started off going really well, but then got stuck on some of the large areas of black fur and brown tree trunk. The semi-completed puzzle spent six months under a bed gathering dust, but is now back on the dining table and I'm vowing not to move it until it's finished and framed (I'm certainly not pulling it all apart again!).

I was just sitting there this arvo grabbing random black pieces and tryna fit them into every available spot (I lost...

Memory Lane

Memory Lane

I recently came across some YouTube videos of old TV shows I used to watch growing up. They brought back heaps of fond memories for me, so I thought I'd share some of them here with ya.

Update: September 2017

This was originally two separate posts (parts 1 & 2) with embedded YouTube videos. However most of those videos nah longer work, so I've removed the videos and linked to the shows' Wikipedia articles instead.
