Toowoong Cemetery, 1 October 2012

Part 1 of 3

I do have some photos of Nundah Historic Cemetery somewhere but all I can find that I’ve posted are these - which are directly behind the cemetery. Still awesome and creepy, but not actually cemetery-y. I should find my actual photos and upload them because there are some really awesome ones!

Do it, do it, do it! (When you’re not busy, of course!)

Will do! I’ll let you know/tag you when it’s done - might not be until tonight, I suspect I’ll have to work soon, haha. I can look away to flick through tags but not to flick through tens of thousands of photos!

I want to hug people because you deserve it!

i have literally heard nothing good about temezepam. though maybe because people don’t tend to post when they have a good experience, but even so.

It hasn’t done any harm and if anything I’d say doxylamine is the worse experience for me because I can feel the blood pulsing through my veins. Every. Single. Pulse. Which is very unnerving, though it’s a sign it’s working. (I think I have low blood pressure anyway?) It knocks me out pretty effectively, but there’s nothing that could wake me up for 11 hours. Polaramine has a similar effect, except weaker. The temazepam doesn’t give me that.

I mean, this Temazepam is from 2008 and it was prescribed to dad when mum died and he never used it. It’s been lying around that long. When medicine expires it doesn’t turn into poison, it simply becomes ineffective, so…I don’t know. The first pill I took worked for sure! I still got to sleep pretty soundly from this one but it never really ‘hit’ me, and I did lie in bed thinking of random crap for a while before.

Basically the only reason I bothered was I wanted to be up at a decent time for work, and I am, but of course nobody else is. Nobody else has bothered showing up anyway!  And I still feel drowsy.

Maybe these sleeping tablets (temazepam) are useless after all, I took one almost three hours ago and I feel fine yet the other day the effect only took 40 minutes?

I need to buy some doxylamine, that stuff puts me out like a light. The downside is it takes 11 hours to wear off with my wimpy body!

I make my own rules

ugh yeah a passport is on my to-do list. but then like… overseas travel requires vaccinations right?

No idea, haha. Check that smart traveler website! Depends where you go, I guess.

yeah dude that is a pretty sweet deal. And travel is always a good option but you want people with you and then they need to have the funds, and it’s just rarely convenient you know?

Definitely true, someone’s always studying or working or has a partner or whatever. Then you have to find someone who wants to go to the same places as you! Or that doesn’t mind splitting up for periods while you’re out.

It’s been on my to-do list forever, but first I need a passport. I nearly got one last year but things happened after I filled out the form/took the photos but before I applied. I need to do everything from scratch…

Changes in income are so weird. I started my job working 4 hours a week and making around $40. Now I’m at $400 minimum after tax and I want to spend it but I lack opportunity.

That’s basically it, yeah. I want to save some for an overseas trip but basically I have enough to fly to most places right now. I probably have about as much as you do, but I don’t know. It’s a damn good job for saving since I’m working from home, but since it’s casual work I’ve earned anything from $350 to $1200 in a week just because of shifting workloads. It’s a very fickle industry.

Of course another catch is tax isn’t deducted as I’m a sole trader so I have to do my own tax. I don’t think I’ll go past the tax-free threshold ($18,500 I think) before June 30 but it’s possible. That’s a very minor point of course and assuming I’m still working, assuming I’m still not spending money, that’s nothing more than an irritation.

Thing is, even after tax, $1200 a week is what, $1050 a week? Probably a bit more. It’s not a huge sum. (I’m not sure because I never claimed the tax-free threshold in my old job and got $5000 back every year!) Considering I work from home, I don’t have to pay for public transport (to the city that’s $50 a week or so) or food (easily $10 a day), and there’s less temptation to buy stupid crap. It adds up very fast. The reverse is true if you get a car loan - your money shrinks very fast. A year ago, I was paying $150 a fortnight towards my car as well and putting $50 on my credit card every fortnight, so basically every pay I was losing $400.

Life Update

I’ve been working in this new job for over a month now and I’m still not used to it. I mean, I’m used to working. That’s easy. No, what I’m not used to is having an income again. I was out of work for 10 months basically, and while I had about a year’s wages saved up - which shrank considerably once I paid my car and credit card off - the thing was for a long time, I could basically buy whatever I wanted with no short-term consequence. I didn’t go crazy though. I bought some cameras, I bought some lenses. I bought some DJ equipment so I could air my radio show. I probably spent $500 on the last Steam sale, which saw my funds drop from $2800 to $1800 quite rapidly (remember, I was starting to redecorate at the time and had to buy car parts also) - which spooked me a little.

(More after the break - I just don’t want to fill your dash with rambling. But feel free to read!)
