    Damnit Tim, you've found someone to make you happy and you're still not even happy! But seriously, I think you'd be suprised at the reactions. Friends at least are happy if you're happy. I'm obviously not sure about your family but to be honest they are your family, it might shock them though. Today, I played cricket, went home and have done nothing of notability since. Good day :D My dad bought me some cricket shoes for my birthday which is awesome (bithday is Tuesday). Gonna spend all day watching the test match tomorrow. I do wish I had time to hang out with my friends though :( But christmas break from work is from the 21st to the 9th so that's a good time :D Also the stress relief of knowing I didn't [bleep] up my exams and will pass into next year has made the last 2 days amazing.

    Cricket!

    you guys are posting without me! :( Curses dial up I can hardly get to TIF... NZ have lost this test match. It's over man, game over. McCullum gone, 2 days to go and 120 behind... New Zealand fragile order to face against good quick bowling, no thanks. And NZ why u no catch ball! IRL the fielding was worse, my bowling figures absolutely raped by my own team with 4 dropped catches and about 25 runs in misfields. Not to mention the plumb lbw and catch behind not given out :| Yeah, thanks guys. Batting wise was interesting. They had one guy who bowled very quick and I ended up facing most of his overs. Problem was he was pretty much bowling short at the body the whole time with guys on short leg and such the whole time. Don't think I've had so much adrenaline in a while :P I faced out about 4 of his 5 over spell and then got out to the medium pace outswing bowler who came on afterwards... That's pretty typical of me. Only scored 13 but to not get out to this fast guy felt real good because their team were sledging a crazy amount (badly enough that our team put in a complaint). And I didn't even know we were up against SA. Gutted they won't bring any matches to Chch :( (or Nelson, I'm just saying but our ground is amazing and it never rains here! :P)

    My exam results just came back, 2 A's an A- and a B. I thought I had done terribly but those results are awesome, so happy with that! Should easily make it into next year of computer engineering! :D

    ... I have to pay the bond for my flat like 2 weeks ago. I think? I have no idea. Apparantly I have to fill out this form, send a cheque and id as well. I can't be bothered, I think I'll do it on the weekend. So yeah, working at a sawmill is pretty crappy. Though I have half days Friday which is good. Apparantly it takes a few weeks to get used to it, because my muscles hurt everywhere and prretty much all the skin has come off my hands (and thats through gloves too...). Oh well. I'll live. Getting a laptop soon i think, finally! Also when I don't get enough sleep I hate everyone. So yeah...

    Today...

    Meh. Week was pretty hectic really, started the job at the sawmill. It's not too bad but I swear by the end of the holiday my back is going to be completely dead. But I also will have a good amount of money and also not be as skinny which will be nice. Also fridays are half days which is mint. Aside from that, saturday I had cricket which went... bad. I scored a grand total of 0 before geting stumped to a slow loopy half volley outside leg stump. Also had 2 catches in a row dropped off my bowling and only ended up with 1 wicket. Then later I went to my friends who were apparantly going to town, so chilled at my friends place for a while and we got to ride in her dads police car over to the bus stop for the bus into town... Which never arrived. Not that I care, tbh town is pretty average imo. So we walked back to mates place and just chilled which was cool. Woke up today, watched black books with a few friends and then a small mission to maccas for lunch, came back and watched some of those fail compliation videos on youtube then we all left. The most notable thing was that my cricket bat was significantly lighter even though I'd only been at work for one week, which is a good sign I guess. Tonight though, I have forms to fill out and an 6 am start tomorrow morning... Fun.

    Cricket!

    First game of the season and for my new team, 10 overs 6 for 14 :P Best ever figures since the last game I played last season. Pretty solid effort considering the other team scored 237/8. Scored 17 batting, kinda just went out there and slogged everything because the bowling was so easy and the pitch was a road. Gutted to have gotten out for that little..

    Today...

    Today I paid for my own fuel for the first time. Went to the beach, even gave my friend a lift there which is funny because I'm still on my learners. Had a pretty cool day at the beach, good to finally see friends and I met a couple of new people. Cricket practice afterwards sucked super hard though, was sore after yesterdays practice. I also have a job full time until summer ends now, working at a sawmill stacking (fairly light) timber. Only got it because my dad used to manage the sawmill and he has been nagging me severely to get a job. Not exactly my ideal job but hey, it pays (a little over minimum wage too! :P), and it will keep me fit, probaly a good experience. Though now my only free times to hang with friends are nights (but I live far away), friday afternoons and Sundays :( @Tim, although I'm not all that good at talking to people either, it's worth remembering people love to talk about themselves, you can pretty much have a 'conversation' and not say much at all. Theres always gonna be poeple you don't find easy to talk to, don't let it bother you too much. Social anxiety is a vicious cycle, you have an awkward moment with someone and it [bleep]s up your mind around people, I'm still trying to get out of it. My problem was I always felt like people judged me on things I say or did, I overthought absolutely everything, not kidding, so I wouldn't say anything and then I would feel worse afterwards because I was really quiet. Honestly, once you can get thoughts like this out of your head it's amazing how much easier things become when your mind is clear. So how I have tried to go about it is just realising people aren't really judging me at all. I'm still learning how to do it, but shit the progress that I've made has made me feel a lot better about things (a few years ago, I could hardly even say words to people at all..) and its helped my confidence immensely. It's pretty much stop (well mostly) caring about what others think of you, way easier said than done, but it can be done just by spending more time around people.

    Cricket!

    Pffft we'll see about that. Glad to see Boult picked for NZ, he's from Rotorua so he must be good. Eh I found myself a criket team too, went to the trainings last 2 nights, first time playing cricket for ages... It was terrible, my bowling was way down in pace and just easy to hit (well, most net bowling is easy to hit but still). My batting was ok, my front foot shots are sorted, but I can never get on the back foot very quick. Oh and also, everywhere currently hurts, damnit cricket.

    Movember 2011

    I would, but I can't seem to grow facial hair at all! :P I have a friend (I think he's a woookie) who instead of 5 o'clock shadow gets mid day shadow, so if he does Movember it would be hilarious.

    Today...

    So... I just managed to smack my mums forehead into my computer desk. She was being annoying and wouldn't get off my bed and leave the room, so I did what I normally did and went to pull her off the bed except I forgot about the change in my rooms furniture and bam... Must have hurt pretty badly. I feel pretty bad, no chance she's going to forgive me for this tomorrow. Theres not much like the wrath of my mum. Also, today I obtained many job applications. But I'm still stuck without any references at all, not exactly sure what to do about that. And my dad bought me and my sister a real crappy car (1986 Ford Laser). All good though I'm pretty exited to even have a car... Might be able to get places for once.

    Cricket!

    Windies pretty much threw this game away it looks like... Also, NZ vs Zim... Too damn close! Our bowling lineup is so weak! Need Southee back, maybe Bennett too. Drop Patel for the last time please. Neil Wagner is eligible soon which is awesome news for us, real talent, bowls pretty quick left arm... Yeah he's a South African. SA vs Aus coming up, should be so good. Too bad they're not showing it here..

    Today...

    Got my computer science assignment back, only 66% :/ Thought I had everything covered and no flaws... A nice welcome to the world of programming I guess? My math case study went a bit better 26/32. Pretty happy with that. Now just waiting on my physics lab report and obviously my final grades after exams are marked and such... Been kind of looking for jobs lately. Living in the middle of nowhere without a car or a liscence is a bit of a problem. Also I don't really have a reference and still havn't made a CV up. Time to get off my ass I guess. Will be honest and say I'm a bit freaked out I'm going to fail my eyesight test for my liscence - my eyesight causes me no problems but I only just passed last time and that was 2-3 years ago, and my eyes are worse than most people without glasses I meet. Nothing has happened since I got back home, havn't seen anyone or anything. Noy many are back from uni though. Missed a friends birthday perty because I got stuck at my house which I'm a bit gutted about. Oh and gotta find a cricket club too, so keen to play over summer, though I bowled a few balls the other day and all of them were head high full tosses so may need to work on that...
  19. Back home on laggy net, SC only works at early in morning and you can still feel the lag :( But I watched a day9 daily that said to turn off mouse scroll (side of screen moving). I'm getting used to it but I feel it's helping me, definitely making me more aware of the minimap. Also said to keep 'tapping' the keys to keep up macro which doesn't help me that much as my macro is pretty good but eh, has been halping me with warpgates - binding the forward pylon is so useful (and shift-warp in, how did I not know about that before...). Having a bit of trouble vs terran lately, feels that if I go for an early expand they can just kill me, but if they do and I don't I can't do anything because they can just turtle up. Also feels like I get stuck on gateway units for too long. Played 6 games tonight, went 4-2 and played a few diamonds too (only won 1/2 of those games though). I just need to be more careful with army positioning sometimes and I've been messing up ff's too. How do you do it, is it press f then hold down shift? I've been messing up so badly (not helped by my lag). Also upgrades, gotta get them! And one other thing is dealing with drops, I overuse my 1-a key so often (for making small adjustments to my armies position) that I accidentaly bring back the units I send to deal with the drop! I'm so bad :P I think if I learnt some proper build orders and timings, I could make my way into diamond easily. I kind of just wing it a lot of the time. Also - Nadril I've seen a couple of your posts floating around r/starcraft, have some upvotes :P
  20. Second page? Seriously? Anyway, hows the new season going for you guys? I placed into platinum (SEA server) and have been facing diamonds since. My win rate since last season is still 60% so I feel I'm doing well. WIll be headng back home to my awful internet where I'll lag so hard I'll drop half my games, so may use my NA account to do that. I've been using a lot of proxy pylons lately + warp prisms. Has been working really well. Still having a lot of trouble with zerg counter attacks... had an epic match the other day where my opponent was 3000/3000 minerals/gas and about to morph in about 12 broods to win the game (I was long distance mining). I attacked him and took out the greater spire right before the coruptors fell and he couldn't get up another greater spire in time and I ended up winning in crazy circumstances. vs T has been a bit weak lately, the only way I can win is using HT/Zealot/Archon or a 6 gate timing sorta. Feels like colossus just die before doing enough damage. Also mass banshee+viking+scan... How can you beat that, my only guess is phoenix or an early sort of attack too, but the terran just bunkers up on 2 base.

    Today...

    I have a chipped PS2 :3 Lately I've been feeling really good about everything, maybe its the summer holidays coming up, possibly I'm finally over the girl who I wasted so much time on this year (not going into details into exactly what happened there...). Big physics test coming up Monday. Last exam of my first year at uni. Feeling really good about how I've been doing, not great, but I'd say I'd be heading to an A- or B+ everage over the year which will mean I can get into second year computer engineering. But a lot will decide on how I do in this exam coming up, I feel like I bossed my math exam today and my computer science exam a few days ago, and the other math course went fairly well. Going to be an awesome week after the final exam is over, really sad that everyone is leaving though. Hope to stay friends with the amazing amount of people I've met this year :) Also: Watched fight club again today. And not eating sugary foods/caffiene didn't stop my insomnia, so I took the liberty of wasting my money on them again. Is it possible to just have insomnia for no reason? It feels like I'm designed for a planet with a 30hour+ long day.
  22. Pretty much nothing, I'm terrible at buying clothes. Maybe I should buy them online instead, in shops I have no idea what I want and never find anything that is decent.

    Today...

    Woke up at 8am for an exam. Went ok. So tired through the day though, I can't even hold a conversation at all when I'm tired... Or even form sentences half the time haha. Oh well gonna hopefully go to sleep early tonight and wake up early for computer science exam tomorrow, and not be so tired.
  24. I would say France definitely stepped up in the final. So tense at the end, was seriously doubting if we could hold on or not.. Super happy with the win!
