Musician To Be

Yes that’s right! I am a musician to be, I’ve always wanted to play an instrument ever since I was about 15. Now, 7 years down the track, I’ve finally got my act together to spend some time learning the guitar. Well it’s been 3 weeks now, and I’m slowly getting the hang of it. Hopefully by next week I’ll be able to play at least one song.

Are you calling me fat?

This was brought up by one of my friends, it’s a very catchy statement. Always gets another person’s attention. Just recently I’ve noticed that I actually gained some weight – just a little bit. This has never happened before, I’m usually always around the same weight. So this is quite strange for me. It’s probably due to the fact that since I started to do full time work, I’m just sitting in the office all day, whereas at uni I would be walking around the uni to get to classes.

I should really be exercising more to keep fit. Discipline is lacking at the moment…

Cool weather

It’s finally getting cooler, woohoo! I think the summer just went on for way too long. It’s already in the second half of March and we are just starting to feel the cold. Praise God that we have seasons, because I’d hate to be stuck in the heat all year round.

There is a season for everything

“There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:

a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace” – Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Say NO! to piracy

Had a nice debate today over ethics of software with my bosses. I used to be like most people out there downloading whatever software I could so that I wouldn’t have to buy anything (yes, c’mon admit it, we’ve all done it in some form or another – intentionally and unintentionally). When I talk to friends telling them that they should buy things legitimately their excuse is usually it’s because they don’t have the money to spend and they think that people who make money from it are already rich enough.

Well they didn’t get rich by stealing did they? They worked hard and earned their money. So who are we (the ones that don’t do the hard work) to say that they are ripping us off. A lot of time and effort is spent in computer software, it may look like it would be easy for developers to just make something. Trust me it’s not, there are plenty of things that happen in the background.

God’s principle is that we reap what we sow. So if you want to sow, piracy/theft in your life, then that is what you will reap later on. Sow good things in your life and you will reap good things later on.

Wisdom teeth not so wise

This must be a new record for me – I haven’t blogged in over 2 weeks. Well I’m finally back, I just had a surgery yesterday on my wisdom teeth (2 on the right side – top and bottom). I went to the surgery sat on the chair and a couple of hours later came out of surgery. Didn’t remember a thing while I was in there, I guess that’s the point of it. The doctor explained to me what he would do though.

You’ve probably guessed why I needed to get my wisdom teeth taken out. Well if you haven’t it’s because my teeth were on its side rather than going straight up – so much for teeth that is supposed to be wisdom teeth, it can’t even grow straight. So to avoid complications later on the doctor had to remove them. From what I was told prior to the surgery he would remove each tooth by opening up the gum and cutting each tooth in four pieces and then taking them out one at a time. Afterwards he would stitch up the gum and voila! All done. Sounds easy right? Well easy for the doctor, but I have to put up with the pain and not being able to eat normally for about a week or so.

Thank you to all the people who prayed for me, I really appreciate it. Praise God that I was able to get through it ok. Now after just having surgery yesterday, I am able to go back to work (not that I really want to) but my boss would like me to go back and I believe God has given me the strength to do so.

One more thing: UniCell for UTS (University of Technology Sydney) and UNSW (University of New South Wales) starts this week. (UniCell UTS has already had theirs yesterday). The details are:
