So my second day

July 3rd, 2012

Wasnt so bad either. I actually learned some stuff and I hope that I remember it. And Im actually thinking of things that I can change at work, which is a plus I suppose. Though I suspect that this is the point of the class, to be able to remember this stuff and put it into action back at my store.

So, how was my day. Well the rain was pretty bad today. It was a little spitty this morning, but it wasnt bad. Then the heavens opened, and there was a leak in one of the lights in the class room. That was… I want to say funny or something, but it really wasnt. It was an inconvienience at best.

Then we watched a video called Max and Max. It was a little wierd. About a dog and an employee of a man called Mr Harold. That was…different.

Then we did role play. I hate role playing. I hate being out of my comfort zone. My comfort zone is, well, comfortable. So as you can imagine, being outside of it is a genuine struggle for me. I do think that I am getting better though, and feedback from Steve was nice, and my second roll platy as coach certainly improved over my first. Then the rain stopped and the sun came out by 4oclock. So thinking I was going to get soaked on the way home, I actually had a nice walk in the sun.

Anyways, just going to get something to eat. No idea where. Its still a bit wet out, so maybe I will try the hotel resturant. I mean it is paid for.


So first day of course wasnt so bad.

July 2nd, 2012

Just a short one today, I really cant be bothered writing anymore. Though I did put a couple of pictures on facebook. Anyways, back to my ramblings. It feels different than I remember at SSC, I mean I know its obviously different because its ASM but its wierd. The class is a lot smaller for a start, like only 20 people. Though by comparison SSC has like 25 or something doesnt it. Lol. Its kinda fun though even though it only be a day. Im enjoying it, and I really wanna learn heaps of shit but I really want it to be over all ready. Not because I am not enjoying it, like I said its only been a day so cant hate it that much, but I just wanna go home lol. Although it is nice being in a hotel room thats completly paid for. Its a Novotel, so its not a bad hotel either.

I arrived safely!

July 1st, 2012

So, I went to bed around 1.30am. Should have gone to bed way earlier! But I got up around 6.30 fine. I say got up around 6.30, I actually got up about 7ish, it took from 6.30 to 7 for me to wake up properly. Then I got a lift into town and I got to play on a big boy bus! Well, the Rotorua-Auckland Intercity. This worked out quite well, because it was actually quite comfortable. And I had no one sitting next to me, well untill Hamilton anyway. But that wasnt so bad. The driver was really nice to. He was like a tour guide. Iv lived here 3 years and I actually didnt know some of the stuff he was going on about lol.

We left Rotorua at around 8.10ish. It left a little late. Got to Hamilton bus station at about twentyfive to 10. Left just before 10. Arrived in Auckland at about 12 ish. Went for a walk around the big city, first time alone I might add, and found a Burger King. There was lunch. Hung around there for a little bit, walked a bit down the street to get me closer to my hotel so the taxi would be cheaper. Went the wrong way at first haha. Fell like an idiot. A sore idiot lol. My bag was killing me! It is so heavy! Im only here for 5 days, I packed for like 8 days. You never know when you might need spare clothes! Better to have them and not need them, than need them and not have them. But try telling that to my shoulders.

Found me a taxi anyway, and omg. It stunk. The Indian driver was an idiot. I asked if he took eftpos, he said no credit card. I showed him my eftpos card, and low and behold, he took eftpos! Got to Novotel, couldnt wait to get out that cab, I thought I’ll pay and get out quick. THEN he pulled out his credit card machine. It wasnt, it was one of those old swipey things that use paper! He mumbled something and I was like ‘What?’ then he mumbled again, I again said what. He then spoke at a normal human level and asked me to sign and put in how much it was. Tell me if im wrong, but if I am a taxi driver arnt I supposed to put the price on? Couldnt wait to run away from that guy.

Finally I get into the hotel, cant check in yet because its not 2’o’clock so figured id write a blog. Good times. Bring on course! Muhuhaaaaa

Well that worked out well.

June 2nd, 2012

Again, I decide to restart my blogging-ness, and again I didnt do anything about it. I have given up saying I will definatly do anything anymore lol. I will play it buy ear. So how has my life been? With endless issues that shall remain nameless, all things considered, its been great!

I have Fairypuff Games up and running. I still think I can devote more time to it than I actually do. It now has a Facebook page, and a Twitter. This is probably one of the things I hate about myself. I have all these great ideas, and when it comes to implement them, I sort of just forget about them. I have decided in the past couple of hours, with the free time I have, I am going to schedule myself to do certain things. Otherwise I will just ignore them, and I really don’t want to do that.

I also have another project coming up called flobadee. But im not revealing it yet. Its a surprise.

So sitting here just sorting this, sorting out flobadee in the background and upgrading my tablets twitter apps.

And best of all listening to Gaga. <3



So…I have a new blog?

February 1st, 2012

Its been a couple of weeks since I blogged. Now I have 2 blogs! I have this one which I will try to update at least once a week, and my newest addition which I will try to update 4 or 5 times a week. Its a photo blog its at

So I had a week off work? That was nice. Went the beach and the beach and the zoo! Can you believe Hamilton Zoo doesn’t have an elephant there? I was shocked and appalled. But it was an awesome week off. Definatly recharged the batteries.

Then I went back to work for the weekend, for Raggamuffin. It sucked. Was so dead, well not dead, but not busy either. Not even one big rush. Shocking.

Started talking to an old friend again too. I kinda missed him just being there to talk to, when he texts back anyway lol.

My gaming website is starting to get people using it too! – Go visit! Its got some pretty cool games on.

Andrew =)

So its the New Year

January 3rd, 2012

Christmas was fun. Got presents, not too many, but a few really great ones. I got a PS3, a pounamu, a new scent (Usher) a Taylor Lautner calendar, and a digital photo frame. Also got a new keyboard and some chocolate and some socks. But it isn’t Christmas without socks lol.

New Year was ok. Coulda been better.

So just sitting here eating truffles (Thanks Natalie Hill) watching some Smallville. Its been a while since we watched it properly, which is hardly surprising considering my sister now lives in her room with her xbox on her new tv.

So my Christmas period was pretty much Christmas eve and Christmas day, as i spent every other day in work. Worked New Year too, had the 2nd and 3rd of January off, and that’s it really. I don’t know how to get into the habit of blogging properly lol. I try to do it more than I do, and it never really seems to work. So I don’t actually know why I’m blogging right now lol. But I am,


So its nearly Christmas.

December 18th, 2011

Figured Id do another one of these. Not much has happened lately. Been working, then chilling, then working then drinking. Pretty much my whole life right there haha. Could be worse, I could be drinking more than I am.

Finally Jack has moved over. This is amazing. Hes been here for 2 months, and Its like we were never without him. Nan is here too. I think the most depressing day of my life will be when she goes back to the UK, and Jack stays. Not looking forward to that.

On the plus side, since he has been here so long, his stuff has all arrived now too. So I have a couch in the office and about 10 new xbox games 🙂 Not that Im glad his stuff is here because I can use it but because it means his stuff is here so I can use it lol.

Works been kind of fun. I have a couple of little things I want to do there, so Im working on getting them done. I still enjoy my job so much. And the fact that Im not running every night shift a week is nice. Its good to just be support on shifts now.

Just downloaded the youtube app on my xbox. Gonna watch some videos and see what its like. Then bed me thinks. I need to plan to finish my christmas shopping, which will have to be done soon, as my next day off isnt untill Christmas Eve!



October 24th, 2011

Why do I not blog that much! I really would like to but never seen to lol

So decided teach mummy how to use her tablet today.

August 29th, 2011

Needless to say frustrating isn’t even the word. She is like child with a new toy. She is spelling everything phonetically and is giggling like a school girl. I love you mummy!!

What an awesome day!

August 24th, 2011

So I decided that I need to use my blog more often. It helps that I can blog on my pc, my iphone and on my touchpad lol.

Iv finally started using using my website, and I even have another website now, which I’m going to use for a games website. if anyone is interested. Its WordPress based, but I am finally starting to get it to do what I want it to do haha.

Apart from that, had some awesome days off. Back to work tomorrow. Good times 🙂

Went out for lunch today too. Chilled out with Masi. Played with Esther. Just chillaxing in the garden with them too. Awesomeness, even more so considering how amazing the weather was for z winters day lol.
