2013 Resolutions…an update on the year that was.

So back at the beginning of this year, I stupidly went and made some New Years Resolutions (you can read the original post here).

The wedding ring saga

      1 Comment on The wedding ring saga

As those of you know, I had a rather unfortunate incident regarding the ordering of my wedding ring. Now, I’m not a bridezilla – I’ve been extremely calm through this whole process, I’ve maintained my composure because, after all, it’s just more day in our lives. Sure it’s an important one, but it’s just one day. The ring, however, has… Read more »

      No Comments on Tech.Ed 2013 – Shout Outs

At this point, I need to do a few shout outs – the first being to GSX for their Tech.Ed ticket competition and for picking me as their winner. Freakin’. Awesome.

Tech.Ed 2013 – Day 4, Friday 6th September

Last day! We’re nearly there! Also, have moved by ‘Shout Outs’ & ‘Tips’n’Tricks’ to different posts, just so this isn’t overloaded!

Tech.Ed 2013 – Day 3, Thursday 5th September

And we’re onto Day 3 – I’m surprised I’m still conscious! Thursday, 5th Sept: I tried so hard to be up in time for the first session, I really did. Sadly, the sinus infection I’d been battling (as well as the alcohol that I’d had the night before) decided that an early morning was not for me. So I finally… Read more »

So now we move onto the start of Day 2 (which is technically Day 1…I think >.>) Also, I forgot to mention one of the most memorable events from Day 1 at the welcome reception – the “head licking” incident.

Driving as a young woman in a tiny car

The words above strike fear into the heart of many. Young woman driver. Small car. Pretty much a death trap on wheels at high speed. Based on a few experiences I’ve had over the last few days (and over the last few years) I wanted to share my opinions (and they are purely my opinions, so feel free to pick… Read more »

Lego collection update

      No Comments on Lego collection update

I figured it’s been a while and I also figured it’d be nice that after my last four blog posts about professional stuff, it would be nice to have something a bit more fun. My Lego collection has somewhat changed since the last time I did a post. Quite a few more additions and I am *literally* running out of… Read more »
