18 May 2003 k   » (Journeyer)


I finally got paid for a couple of things this week. I burnt $3k on something I purchased as a middle man - the situation was stupid but now I have well and truely learnt my lesson. My credit card is nearly half of what it was at the beginning of the week.

I have to be careful - I still have a long way to go before its paid off.

I also have the last few years of tax returns to do. 2001-2002 is really the only one I need some help with since the others are simply blank (I was working overseas, I paid Dutch tax.)


I have the forms I need to re-enrol for next semester. I might finally get around to finishing first year CS.


I found a 3rd year CS assignment which I'm doing because it looks interesting. I'm doing it in C rather than java as, well, I'm still not in third year.


My brother is going into hospital on Tuesday. He has a lump in his left buttock. Poor guy. Its quite a big lump too. Understandably everyone is a little upset but things aren't as bad as they were when he found out. If all goes well he'll be out of hospital a couple of days later with some painkillers and instructions to lie down for a month or so.
