Week 26 – The real half-way point and CHRISTMAS!

Merry Christmas!

As you can tell by the title, this week was the actual half-way point. 😉 We were counting months by four weeks but, since a year has 52 weeks, we messed it up a little. 26 weeks = half a year… blahblahblah. You get the point!

On Tuesday of this week, the business Daniel works at (PageUp People) had a Christmas party. His manager insisted that he go and even offered to pay for me to join. We accepted the offer and ended up having a great time! It was held at Richmond Union Bowling Club, a place to play lawn bowls. The party started with drinks and food (mostly BBQ). It later moved out to the lawn where we bowled… simple enough xD. It was great to meet all the people Daniel works with. I know some people were excited to meet me, too.

Nothing else happened during thing week until Friday. I got some bad news that day and Daniel got to get off work early!  I got a text during the day from work. They were informing me and my coworkers that there wouldn’t be any available shifts until AFTER 31 January. The break was originally supposed to be two weeks. […]

Week 25 – Nearly Christmas!

Ciera after her hair being dyed.

This week was quite good. Ciera and I had a lot going on. On Monday, Ciera had two shifts at work, which was pretty draining for her :P. Since it’s nearly Christmas, Ciera doesn’t have any shifts at work for two weeks, and I have a few days off. More time together, woot!

On Thursday, I had to do a presentation about my work placement, to my manager at work, as well as the supervisor for the placement (a person from my university). I was very worried, but I think it went alright. I’m always really scared of presentations; I hate them heaps. I guess I just dislike presenting stuff, and public speaking. In any case, my manager said it went very well, so I’m quite happy about that. Now I just need to worry about writing the final report!

On Friday, Ciera had her last shift for the year. Since she was working until 7 PM, I told her that I’d go straight from work to home, and meet her there. However, I didn’t actually do that, and surprised her at work instead. Bought her a delicious blueberry muffin too. She was very surprised and I’m sure she appreciated it. Seriously, when you have a blueberry muffin, what could possibly go wrong?! It makes life more awesome. […]

Week 23 together!

Being awesome waiting for a bus.

This week has been pretty amazing, much like all the other weeks. The only bad thing was that Ciera was feeling sick for most of the week :(. This post will be pretty short, I’ve got heaps to do so don’t have much time to write up a blog post :(

On Monday, Ciera had work during the day. She came into the city early so I got to see her both during lunch, and after I finished work, which was pretty awesome :). On Wednesday, it was deployment day at work again, so I had to be there at 7am.  This meant I finished early, so I got to see Ciera earlier than normal, and spend more time with her!

On Saturday, we both went Christmas shopping together. We didn’t buy too much, it was more to take a look around and see if we could find any awesome things.  Ciera found some pretty cheap and good clothes at K-Mart so she bought them for herself. On Sunday, we did similar things, except I knew what Ciera wanted! She wanted a bike, so we went to K-Mart and got one. Luckily I bumped into my dad at K-Mart, so he was able to give us a lift home (otherwise we would have had to carry a big box on public transport!). We nearly finished assembling the bike but then realised we need a bigger wrench to finish it off. We did buy tools, but only a small wrench. So Ciera’s going to buy a large wrench tomorrow so we can finish putting it all together.

Until next time,
— Daniel

Week 15 together

We are so in love <3

Another amazing week together! Every day we’re together is a great day, and every week we have great fun, and this week was no exception (of course).

Not really related to me and Ciera, but on Wednesday, I had to go to work early. I work at a software development company, and our system is hosted on the Internet. Whenever new development work is going out to beta, the developers responsible for the work have to be there at 7 AM to help with deployment. This is so any bugs/issues can be worked out before people start their business day. Most of the time things are fine, and this day was no exception. The great thing about starting work two hours earlier is finishing two hours earlier. I also didn’t take lunch break (which is usually an hour), so actually finished three hours earlier than usual. After work, Ciera and I went off to K-Mart since they were having a DVD sale. We bought Land Before Time 1 2 and 3, Milo and Otis, I Am Sam, and Fern Gully. Each of these was only $9, which was great.

On Thursday, Ciera was working in the afternoon, and so she could meet me at work once I had finished. When we met up, we were going to go to a different restaurant along Lygon Street, but couldn’t really choose any, so we went to Papa Gino’s again. […]
