The List: Number 37 – Get my Full License

By | Uncategorised | 4 Comments

It took me absolutely forever, but I’ve done it. I’ve finally joined the ranks of those able to drive during the hours of 10pm – 6am, and to take passengers.

Truthfully, though, it never stopped me before, and I never once got a ticket for it. Still, I’m stoked, check it! License Class Held: 1F!

In a slightly amusing side story, a few months ago I was playing Sober Driver to The Second + Fourth Quarters and the brilliant Lucas. I got pulled over as you do when you’re coming from town with a bucketload of people in your car at 4 in the morning (Sidenote: as The Second Quarter was sitting in the passenger side with his full license, I was allowed to drive with passengers). Anyway, I wasn’t speeding, and I wasn’t sure why the policeman had pulled me over. I asked if it was because I was ‘wobbly’. It wasn’t, it was just so I could do a breath test to make sure I was sober enough to drive.

Well, The Second Quarter mocked me the whole drive home after that. BUT! When I took the driving test for my full, the License Lady told me that it was likely that no one had ever told me this before, but that I drove a little ‘wobbly’. She used that EXACT WORD! Ever since I’ve been trying to drive a little less wobbly.

Anyway. Number 37 on The List: Get my Full License. Done. Woo, yeah!

The List: Number 5 – Move to London

By | Uncategorised | 29 Comments

It’s official. I’ve handed in my notice. I’ve got tickets. I’ve got Visas. I even have Job Interviews and plans to meet people who live in other hemispheres. I’m ridiculously excited about this. It actually blows my mind.

Blogosphere, I’m moving to London.

I’m not going straight to London though, I’m going by a few places, to see a few brilliant people, see a few sights, knock a few other things off the list. Here’s the plan:


So blogosphere, tell me. While I’m in these amazing places, what should I do? What should I see? Are any of you in these cities and keen to meet up for some adventuring?

The List: Number 20 – Complete the 365 Project

By | Uncategorised | 14 Comments

Well, I did it. Last week I posted the final photo in my 365 Series:

And I can’t believe I did it. I can’t believe that I took that many photo’s of myself, that I committed to a full year of this project. That I finished. And for serious, for anyone looking to do it, it’s hard. There are so many times I took shitty photos. Photos that are out of focus, or just of me pulling a face or my feet. Times where I just took a shot, any shot of whatever because I’d almost forgotten, or was out, or was lacking in motivation.

I think that was the hardest part. The complete lack of motivation to keep going. For a while there I used mini projects to keep my motivation up. The Week of Jumping, of Reflections, of Upside Down and of Random Head Gear. I think the best part is being able to look back and remember. Remember how I was feeling, how far I’ve come in the last year. The adventures I’ve been on, the people I’ve met. The ups and downs and in betweens.

So, for your viewing pleasure, the full 365 images:

The video was put together by the brilliant and fantastic and amazing Lucas, who said if I got the end he’d make me a video. <3 him muchly for this. The song is "Go Do" by Jónsi.

On The List: Number 20 – Complete the 365 Project – Done!
