What have I been up to?

30 January 200802:00PMlife

Good question. Excellent question. If we had more questinons like that, the world would be a better place. ... ... ...

Oh. You want an answer? Ok.

I've been on school holidays, which started around the start of December, and will be finishing in a few days. I could tell you everything I did, but that would be a waste of time. Instead, I present a few juicy highlights, for your viewing pleasure...

Pirates of the Caribbean Marathon

9 people 12 pizzas 8 hours 3 movies = fun.

As you may recall, we are Pirates nuts, so we had this little event. Photos here. Also served as my unofficial 15th birthday party.

Siemens Science Experience at UWA

This was a 3 day course at UWA for people my age (duh), involving a whole heap of different aspects of science. Lots of chemistry and explosions, and some really good cutting edge stuff about DNA and stuff. Met a whole heap of really interesting people who I'll probably never see again, since I lost my phone but it was good nonetheless. Big thanks to the Rotary Club for paying for it for me and Siemens and UWA for organising it!

Rottnest!

Went to Rotto again this holidays. We were all over the place, stayed a bit in Geordie, Thomson, and Marjorie bays. Saw a couple of friends over there, and I got to drive the centre console around a bit since I've got my reacreational skipppers ticket now. I also caught the biggest fish I've ever caught (or even seen in person), a big Samson Fish. That was seriously cool, I was fighting this huge fish for about 10 minutes, at first I thought it was snagged on the bottom, since Matt and Cal had hooked something big earlier but it got away, I didn't believe them but I sure did when this thing started swimming away. We ate it. It tasted fantastic. Here's a photo so you know I'm not lying....

Anyway, that's pretty much all the exciting stuff which happened. A few other things did, like me turning 15 and my Christmas present finally arriving (a Samick Privilege bow with Agulla riser- thats archery gear in case you don't know), and generally I enjoyed the holidays and am vaguely distressed at having to go back to school (Year 10... eek)

Anyway, thats all for now. Might not be able to post for a while due to aforementioned year 10 and increased workload. See you later...
