The Perfect Week
Just had a pretty excellent week, if I do say so myself.
Monday was all about postage. My Just Mobile Gum Pro (extended iPhone battery, RichardSolo competitor with 3.8X the capacity of the iPhone 3G’s internal battery) arrived via registered post from Hong Kong, and it is good. Thanks, Expansys! I also get some excellent news on a couple of items that I’ve been expecting for a while.
Tuesday wasn’t as busy – after starting to write up the review for MacTalk on the Gum Pro, I got a message from none other than Mrs Schuth saying that the School Magazine was back from the printers and was available for collection. Naturally, I don’t have my Ps yet, so I got a friend to pick me up and collect the magazine from school. Thanks, Christo.
Wednesday, and yet another thing arrives in the post. This time, it’s my LogMeIn.com t-shirt that I’ve totally forgotten about – I did some beta-testing for them a while back, and they send me a free t-shirt from the US as a gift. Works for me. Thanks, LogMeIn.com! Apart from that, Chris and I take a trip to Sandy Bay to see what the parking situation is for Thursday’s Orientation day for us who are studying in the Faculty of Science Engineering and Technology. It’s not too bad – we finish with a Hungry’s Lunch, and that’s about it.
Thursday, and it’s the day for us Science, Engineering and Technology guys to head to UTas to Orientation Day. There, I pick up my Student ID, take a tour, and setup my School of Computing and Information Systems account. Easy day, but it’s great cos I get to catch up with some old friends from Calvin whom I haven’t seen in a while. Later on, I get into town, buy a Nerf Maverick, and trade with a fellow MacTalk member – Nicolas Cage is awesome in Next, and Knocked Up and The 40 Year Old Virgin are impossible to resist, especially when bundled together.
Friday, another easy day – I pretty much do nothing. Later on, I get news that the thing that I ordered on Monday has arrived – but along with this comes the devastating news that I can’t take it home.
Saturday, work. Training is excellent – I don’t finish the class too early, and I recieve a ton of compliments on my training from the guys who attended. I also grab a copy of iLife ’09 – review to come shortly.
Now, it’s Sunday. The first day of Uni is tomorrow, and I’m not quite sure I’m ready yet. I’ll be able to pickup my thing tomorrow, though – so there’s a good start to the week already!
