I’ve made the formspring account and got the code for a widget and yet IT TURNS INTO A LINK.

I have no idea whether this is just because of our theme or if it is common to all wordpress themes.

I’ll put the username and password up in the ‘Pages’ section (private, obviously) so please fiddle around with it/follow people/add a nice display picture

and of course, YOU LURKERS give us questions

so I/we can procrastinate a little longer. :)

itunes noobiness

For some reason, the automatic sync that occurs when I plug my iPod in doesn’t sync any untransferred apps (maybe I unchecked the box without making a note to myself).  So when I (finally) updated my software today, after about half a year of not using iTunes, stuff got wiped that was supposed to be backed up.  Not like it was really a loss, because they were all apps I got for free.  Urgh.

Also I have too many apps, so the ones I had to manually put back onto my iPod only go from P-Z/numbers.  Seems like the page limit is 11.  PRUNING IS REQUIRED

EEP back to maths!  I think I’ve ingested what adds up to be at least 100g of sugar already today…tummy feels weird and not in the mood to work/not like I ever am though.

FINALLY THAT BUNGEE JUMPING SPIDER CAME DOWN it was bouncing up and down in front of me for a very long time why

OH WAIT HERE IT IS

IT TURNS OUT THE FIRST ONE WAS A DIFFERENT ONE

WAIT NOW IT’S LANDED ON MY MATHS HOMEWORK

GO AWAY

 

Web browsers

Things to like about Google Chrome:

Not sure but I think Safari supports these too.

Things to like about Mozilla Firefox:

  • all of those Chrome features? there’s (probably) an add-on for it. in fact two of the Chrome features were definitely inspired by firefox add-ons. but there issues with relying on add-ons.

I propose:

changing the theme of this blog to Ambiru with a modified header image and the categories, weblog and archives moved into pages.

After receiving threats from both of my parents forcing me to use only my government-issued laptop, I have begun to realise the stupidity of blocked websites.

Okay, no one likes the DET block.  I get that.  But I don’t get why stuff like email and blogs are blocked.  Especially hotmail.  Heck, I guess we struck it lucky that gmail isn’t blocked.  And blogs.  Even visiting one isn’t allowed. 

I never really cared so much, until the aforementioned threat.  HOW WOULD I BLOG TO YOU MASSES OUT THERE?  What is the worst part is the underhanded way our teachers, at the information night last year, planted the idea that these laptops would be enough for all our computer needs.  Please.  Filtered internet in our own homes? 

At my friend’s all girl school, the internet isn’t even blocked.  AT ALL.  My point is, I think we do need filtered internet, but some things should be unblocked.  For convenience.  Especially when it tempts people into the area of teachers’ accounts and stuff.

A random fact that shall be noted here: record time from getting up to leaving house is now fifteen minutes.

OOOHH there was a song I was going to embed here, but it’s not on youtube, so I will just tell you the name here:

Summer nights, by Vanessa Amorosi

It’s so nostalgic, I like the chorus.

This morning was weird.  Had to get up early to finish off a thousand words for ag assignment, so I set the alarm for 6:15.  Woke up randomly and decided to get up anyway.  Reached for the clock, it breaks as I press the light button to see the time.  I look at the clock outside, it says 6:16.

Today was beach excursion!  I didn’t get to touch the water though…PSSSHHH what is the point of going to the beach then?!  It was at Collaroy.  Very nice view on the walk up to the top, and a lovely refreshing cool sea breeze~  view up the top was great AND sydo has a new nickname – squishy?

Hehehehehe what an awesome nickname.

Our tour guide was pretty cool, did we even get to know his name?  Attempted to find our school on a massive map was very fail.  And then the walk down from the top was even more fun/refreshing.

Ehhh the rest of the day can be summed up with one word: SAND

WE SHOULD HAVE ANOTHER BEACH DAY SOMEDAY

i shall try and get some photos from ben/make him post them up himself.  he definitely has a lot of them.

TIME FOR THE SHAMELESS PLUG/VICTOR’S QUOTE CORNER!
