      I don't use this much but its the one site where a portion of my friends who i don't want to see what I am about to say don't hang out. This is going to be a rant so you probably don't want to read it, i just need to get my thoughts out of my head you have been warned

      Today was our AGM, I was going to run for vice president of the committee and based on the facts I was ready to present to back my bid for the spot I would have had a good chance. Then I saw the make up of the voting group, 3 quarters female and my opponent was a female and we were running for the last spot on an executive that already had 3 female members. That was blow 1, then the out going president starts the AGM and he informs us that instead of the 2-4 minutes we were meant to have to ply our case we instead have 30 seconds each, there goes my chance to show that I have 12+ years experience in various management roles and other committee's right up to a state level. Blow number 2. With those 2 things working against me of coarse I lose. But what really cut was that i was then offered the consolation prize, to continue doing the job I had been doing for the last year. The same job i had not re-nominated for because i was sick of getting no support while trying to run events for a student body that i couldn't even get the committee to show up to half the time (lets forget about the bowling night hat can cancelled because the 4 notices i sent to our IT guys about putting the signup form live went unnoticed) while the stupid end of year event got a year long run up and a blank check book. Then to top it off I am informed by one off the counters when i get home there was only 5 votes in between us so it wasn't a landslide. What she failed to take into account was that there were only 15 voting members, minus 2 votes for certain down to 13 (mine and my opponents) so half that you get 6.5 each and there was 5 votes in between. lets be nice and say i got the other half of the .5 that gives me a grand total of 2 votes plus my own. I had 3 good friends on the committee (each of which got an automatic pass into their role, no vote needed) so 2 of the 3 voted for me if i am lucky. Considering I had already secured the vote of the bloke i recommended for my former position that takes it down to 1. I think some friends are going to need to be cleaned out of my life. 16+ years i have been working 12 of which have been in the event management/security area plus running my own buisness, those 12 years I have been in various management roles and all that lovely experience means jack all against some some ditzy blond who has been in uni and schlepping away as a waitress for the 2 years since she left highschool. Yeah thanks for that life, you can go and get fucked now.

      Its inevitable but when it happens to someone you love it hurts and makes you contimplate you life. Its been a week since my grandmother, mother of 5 sons 2 adopted daughters and a large number of foster children, grandmother and great grandmother over her life passed onto the next life. I am not religious in anyway but i know she is in a better place now. I am a good person i know but that has only come from examples such as her, my mothers mother and my parents. These people shaped my life and add that with the influence of my friends both here and passed on i belive i am able to tackle most things. To all the ARTST members thanks for being my mates your all good people

    • Criminal Code why do you hate me so

      So I am on here when I am meant to be finishing my criminal code assignment which is due Wednesday (still got at least 1500 words to hit the minimum amount) and while I am not freaking out I am definitely banging my head on the desk. I sat down and started to plan out my future studies earlier tonight at work and for part of it I am going to have to start saving money now and start the process of a visa. When I finish TAFE I am off to griffith Uni here in Brisbane for a year to 2 years (most likely 2 years so I can get a start on the law degree) then I am aiming to move to sydney to finish my criminology study and law study. From there depending on how certain things turn out (Certain laws that Australia should not have and applications to various federal agencies here in Aus) I will be looking to move to Austin or Dallas to pursue a career in law. This is kind of scary and kind of exciting all at once, on one hand I could be living in the US with access to a number of competitive shooting events I can not access here due to our stupid laws, on the other hand I am in a completely new country with nobody to fall back on if I fail in what I want to do (altho a big plus I will be in the same state as RT)

      Hey all, Well made it back to brissy yesturday, 14 hours on th train has made me get over my fear of flying very easily so come melbaggeddon I am flying down. I have been thinking of the best way to write this entry and listening to the podcast got me thinking on doing it (mainly because I got mentioned now if only it was by name hehe). My weekend in sydney was the best I have had in a long time (hence the reason I was smiling all the time Caiti). I was going to do shoutouts in this journal but because I am at tafe (and meant to be studying) I will be leaving those for now but I did promise a bit of news. Because of my weekend and the time spent with you all I have decided to have a long hard look at completing my studies in sydney. Be well all and talk to you all soon

      Today I spent the day at armageddon in sydney, now being a Brisbanite this is unholy land for me, but out of the despair comes great pleasure. I met up with my mate mick and helped him unload which in turn led me to meet geoff and griffon and millie before the expo opened. from there my day got even better because i got to meet teh rooster teeth street team brillantly organized by cati. We pestered the rooster teeth booth with our prescence once again all getting various photos and buying various bits of swag and from there off to lunch again organize by cati (fantastic woman this one, I envy her boyfriend or any potentials).brillant lunch and to finish off the day a group photo with the rooster teeth crew. (seriously nice people I hope we didn't bug them too much). Its back tomorrow to check out the panel and too see my new friends one last time before the weekend finishs hopefully we will all be able to meet up again soon after this convention and have more fun times.
