As it was prophesied in this doodle it has come to be

It’s been a while. Six months to be exact. Lots of things have happened since the completion of the unit this blog was created for. Holidays were had. A new semester was taken and completed. So what’s next for the ‘rotten lemon’? To be honest I’m not entirely sure. All I know is I had a bunch of fun writing this and now that university is over for another year I find myself with more time on my hands. I’ve been listening to this audio book that suggests engaging in an activity that plays to your personal character strenghts increases your overall happiness. As creativity is the strenght I am looking endulge here it will be the overall theme of the blog. Ranging from art to cool ideas, theories or whatever tickles my fancy all in the name of enlightenment. So stay tuned and enjoy the ride as I try to make sense of this crazy world of ours.

 



I need your help!

I’m looking for some help coming up with the sub title for this blog. Originally it was ‘just another CCA1103 blog’ and currently it’s ‘learning is rarely pleasant’. Don’t really like how that sits as I personally enjoy learning very much. It does go with the blog title pretty well though.

Throw me some ideas. I need some feedback to get my ‘flow’ going otherwise I’ll just go around in circles. See what I did there Mark. I referred an unrelated post back to the unit. That right there is worth a couple of marks at least!



RE: Famous on the Interwebs

I have been getting a lot of feed back from my Famous on the Interweb post. It also seems to be getting the most traffic on the blog with about 14 hits a day. So I thought I’d share the back story on that now somewhat infamous picture.

Last year there was a competition to become the face of a new shopping center here in Perth. It was voted on by the public then a winner was selected from the most popular. Along with the photo you had to submit a 25 or less word statement which basically equated to why you thought you were the centre of the universe. My statement was “see photo for proof of my awesomeness“.

Here is a screenshot from the competition website with myself and some of the contestants.

I am a model

In case you were wondering I didn’t win…



Theme change

Changed the theme today so I could have two columns. Now if I could only figure out how to change the hyperlink colour from red…

Header had to be re-done so it’s missing text at the moment.

Probably should have just left the blog as it was!



Famous on the interwebs

I’m now famous on the interwebs! Check it…

Screencapture of blog stats

Hit a milestone yesterday. 41 views in a single day! Pretty good since it’s week6 and we are still waiting on a list of our classmates’ blog addresses!

41 hits on the interwebs baby!

Avoid the rush ladies get some now before I become a delusional celebrity with an inflated sense of self-worth. Hit me up on 1800-IAMADOUCHE…you know you want to!



Introducing my alter egos

In a unit that has more in common with therapy than a traditional university unit I finally came face to face with my alter egos. Turns out they are just like me and have their own hopes, dreams and fears. I will also like to mention how awesomely cool they were in letting me take a couple pictures to share on this blog!

The boys

Keep it real guys…just remember I’m the boss and we’ll avoid having to share a straight jacket!



Custom rating system

I customized the rating system for the blog today. I made this image in powerpoint so the stars would be replaced by lemons keeping with the blogs theme. Worked out well!

Lemon rating image

Here is the original image I used to create the image above.

New ratings are as follows;

1 lemon = Kill me now!
2 lemons = Craptastic
3 lemons = Meh…
4 lemons = Sweet
5 lemons = You are a God!
