Okay, so I’m going to do a music plug here, but I really love the music that get’s played on GA, it’s mainly a mix of alternative stuff, but the great thing is it plays heaps of smaller less unknown bands/artists (well in this part of the woods anyway). One artist I’ve got playing a fair bit is Mike Doughty. If you get the chance listen to I Hear The Bells.

I was reading an article linked from a Travel Newsletter I receive in my email every week, and there was the following sentence – “The problem with travel is that it makes you realise how much you haven’t seen – and how much you don’t know”. And the thing is, it actually is true to some extent. For me, the more I see/experience other parts of the world, the stronger the urge burns inside me to keep seeing more when I come back home.

But the thing is, for most of us, we can’t base our life around travel. It’s not sustainable nor financially secure in the long run. Which of course makes me wonder what’s better – having a secure future or seeing/experiencing the world? It’s hard to make the choice. In a really glossed over manner, it really comes down to: work hard, earn money, not see much OR work normal, earn enough to survive, see things…

Got the travel bug and I don’t know what to do…

Some good quotes…

“That’s not a dog, it’s a hyena escaped from the zoo dressed in dog clothing”
“There is a land called Passive Aggressiva… and I am their queen”

and yes the weather is overcast, humid and rainy again… though I suppose rain is good even if it means I can’t play outside.

Why is the weather crap of late? On the days it’s actually sunny, it’s too hot to go to the beach because it’s 30+ degrees. Then on the days where the temperature is actually nice, it happens to be totally grey and overcast with occasional rain…

Other than that, yesterday was a shopping expedition day with Trish + Ang. Birkenhead, Lane Cove then over to Alexandria to the Seafolly store. Then spent the afternoon watching Fantastic 4, then back to my house for food and a massive watching session of Season 2 of GA…

Well I finally decided to break my unproductiveness phase and got round to finishing of that code to process my last.fm data. So now instead of Currently… Listening it will show the most recent tracks I’ve listened too. Now that’s done I need another little project to work on…
