Get on The Grind Like Clockwork

Alright, it's been 4 months !

Things done changed... so I'll get right into it.

I am 4 weeks into my final semester of the Master of Design program at UNSW. Yup, that's right. I'll have Masters degree by mid-November. I'm awesome ! Last semester went well, I had some great work through my classes and my grades ( marks ) were pretty damn good.


I went home after last semester, and it was solid. Good to see everyone, and realize things really aren't that different in a year. Except all my friends are progessively getting older and more responsible while I'm regressing in that area of life. Oh well, someone's gotta do it. The whole month back home was a big blur, long nights drinking and even longre days recovering while consuming as much cable TV as I possibly could. Lot's of reality shows and ESPN.


Last time you guys tuned in, I was working for Slushie King Australia. Yeah, that's not happening anymore. I graciously bowed out of the Slushie industry, even though I am brown it just wasn't for me. This leads me to one of my new jobs. I am currently the "Assistant Lecturer" at my University, the College of Fine Arts. I am teaching freshman design studio. So I am a member of Acedemia with a Staff card and priveledges along with a parking spot in the staff lot. I'm Awesome !

The other day I told a kid to call me Professor Awesome ! He looked at me and said "Are you serious ?" then I laughed and said "no, I'm just kidding.... but seriously... if you want to you can call me that."

This is gonna be amazing !


Now on to job number 2. I just started this job last week. I am the new "Design Consultant" for Directflights.com.au. It's a pretty good gig. I get to help improve the user interface and user experience for the company site before its full B2C launch in a few months. It's kinda weird to be back in the corporate world again after a year, but hey, it's a resume builder. Even though I am back in an office, I am not conforming to the rules. For my interview I wore a dirty t-shirt and my AIIIR Force Ones ! WOrd. I keep it Gangsta in corporate Sydney. Yesterday, we had a meeting with the site developer, and I was one of 5 people in the meeting. The difference, they all had on nice expensive suits and shiny shoes while I was rocking a blue hoody with Converse. Word ! Gangsta. Keepin' it real !


Just finished watching the first season of Ricky Gervais' new show Extras. It is hilarious. In the past few months I have become obsessed with Gervais. His podcast is brilliant as well, definitely check that out. Also, he wrote and starred in a Simpsons episode as well where he played his character from the Office. The guy is high-larious.

The best part is that the kid actually thought you were serious, and apparently was mentally preparing himself to call you "Professor Awesome" on a regular basis. My God, the power you wield! Get started on abusing it, STAT.
