Hello!

I’ve been away on a two day trip with Chriss Greenwood, the guy i meant on Couch Surfing, hence i was unable to write at that time. But to keep you entertained i am uploading a list of animals i have seen in the wild since i came here.

Please note that i am not Mr. Camera Conjurer and also not Made Of Bandwidth, so i only have pictures of three of them.

Ah, and it seems that my statistics have drasticly improved since i complained no one visits the blog πŸ™‚ the obvious course of action is to complain more! Logically speaking. I’m not a logical person.

  • Kolibri – Just flew up to me, noticed i’m not a flower, backed out and flew away.
  • Seals – Well you might have seen the video yesterday, yes?
  • Human – buggers get everywhere.
  • Chameleon – Roll a spot check, difficulty over 9000. I don’t have a picture because i couldn’t find it again after i went to get the camera.
  • Zolbane Bengtslayer – A huuge insect, possibly a beattle. Curious little fellow, but not to bright. It had a fatal physical attraction to my grill.
  • Bird with tail -The tail was three times longer than the bird. I really wish i had my cam with me.

Postponing

January 20, 2009 at 8:25 pm (Personal Blog, School, When in South Africa) (, , , , , , , )

Heya

I’m working on a bigger post expaining the majority of my move here, but it’s so big it’s taking time and effort. For now i have a little treat for you.

I’m finaly moved and settled in with Johan, one of the professors at my school. I got my very own room here, and it’s a totaly awsome appartment. Johan is an amazing and intrigueging guy (avoiding the word interesting here), and i hope to learn more about him and from him during my stay here.

I’ve also found out more about how school works. Apparently masters student are much more valued here. I don’t really have the same possition as most students. I’m even able to propose a project which i can do as part of my education. I think i will do the GVC website that way, it’s a wonderfull opportunity to work with a user group that needs my work.

Oh and about the appartment again. It’s got really good internet, by a wireless modem! And i don’t mean that it sends a WLAN around, it acctually gets the internet via 3G. Amazingly good speed. Johan chose to do it this way because heΒ  refuses to use land lines, that are owned by Evil Corporation. That means i have decent internet.

So here’s a treat for you.Β  I would edit it but for some reason i don’t have Movie Maker 😦 Does any one know a good alternative?

Another quicky

January 19, 2009 at 9:23 am (Uncategorized) (, , )

I’m sitting at a cafe right now, waiting for a download that will hopefuly make my 3g modem work. So it
s time for another quick update πŸ™‚

I found a place to live! One of the teachers at the university overspent on hist christmass shopping, so he offered to rent me his guest room. The very good thing about that is that i will live close to Suzanna, and have a local nearby as well. And free itnernet πŸ˜€ There’s a download cap, so i will try not abuse it, but that means i will be able to work on this blog seriously ^^

I’m going to the University soon to talk to him about it, then i have one more viewing of an appartment in walking distance to the Uni. The one the teacher offered is out of town so i would need to drive or take the train, but that won
t be a problem i think. It’s a really nice neighbourhood.

In the evening i will meet Chris Greenwood for dinner and a beer. He’s an arts teacher i met over couch surfing, so that could be interesting πŸ™‚

I think i will move out from the hostel tomorrow or on wednesday, so i’ll keep you updated.

I wanna go to the beach and sunbathe :/

Update

January 18, 2009 at 6:50 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , )

Hello mates :=)

Here’s a quick update – Right now i’m in South Africa on exchange studies πŸ™‚ Most of you know that already.

I’m still staying at the hostel, going to look at server appartments the comming week. The internet here is modem speed, so that has put a stop to my plans regarding this page, but i hope to get something better as soon as i settle down.

I plan on resurecting this site a whole lot. I will move it to my personal server, which is aatk-design.com. The point of that is that i will be able to play around with the CSS there πŸ™‚ And seeing as i am studying graphical design here, that can prove interesting.

Cape town is pretty awsome. We got a lot of sun, wind and mountains, and those are all things i love. The plant life is really african here, but i haven’t seen much of it yet. It’s not really my thing to go hiking alone, or even to the beach. I’m expecting to do more things once i get some friends at school.

I do plan on making more things happen once i get serious internet, but for now i will try to make more of these short updates πŸ™‚

Semi Success

August 10, 2008 at 11:35 am (Design, Personal Blog, When In Poland)

Ok, i realize now that adding a RSS feed to my blog is in fact very easy and having had difficulty with it for so long is slightly embarrassing. I was not aware of the existence of widgets at all you see πŸ™‚ Never the less i have managed to add a RSS feed from my GiantBomb account, but it’s a a semi success only. I wanted to add a feed of all my activities from that site, but unfortunately it seems to be broken right now. So i have to be content with adding the feed from my blog there.

Other then that I’ve spent all too much time at home this weekend. I didn’t feel like going out on Friday so i guess i’ll have to sit and wait until the next occasion arises, which is kindof boring. I’m using my extra time on thinking about how to make my portfolio, as it is indeed about time πŸ˜‰ I’ve also spruced up this page a little bit, adding things like recent comments and stats to my sidebar. I’m thinking about exchanging the layout, but we will see.

Hear from me soon ^^

Ominous

August 7, 2008 at 8:07 pm (Uncategorized)

So yet again i completely fail to post according to a schedual which i set myself, and i do apologize. Recently i have been haunted by so heavy thoughts i find it hard to focus myself on writing here, even if it all probably makes for ‘perfect material’.

One thing i’m pretty sure of is that i’ve been an ass to a couple of my friends lately, and idealising Poland a lot, for no valid reason as i discovered after spending some time here. I apologize for that as well.

I can tell you about one thing i have been doing in breaks between various activities with friends, traveling, my Internet being down due to faulty hardware and my laptop breaking down several times (oh look you got a list of things that happened already πŸ™‚ ). I’ve been spending my spare free time exploring the world of alternative and independently developed digital games. I can recommend you a site called Manifesto Games and it’s hmm partner site PlayThisThing.com . You can find a game called Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble! there, which is a lot better than the title sounds, and gets the official Cousken Approves stamp right away.

I guess that would be it for now. I will get back to trying to rig up wordpress to read my blog from GiantBomb.
