April Fool’s BIATCHS!

Posted by on Apr 2, 2010 in Cape Town, My life | 0 comments


Ok so the truth must come out as I can’t be THAT mean to all of you! I am NOT going to live in the UK for a year like I said yesterday, but surprisingly very, VERY, few actually picked up on the joke. Obviously my skilled build up and planning worked quite well :)

But just to make things clear: I AM NOT MOVING!

So you can all stop being bleak with me ok :)

*hint hint Kate*

I absolutely loved the look on the faces of some of the people last night when I told them. Wow. Good times. I am so planning something even bigger next year!

There was one very sick joke played by some of my friends yesterday, and I must admit I was actually disgusted by it, and you know who you are! Enough said!

Did anyone else get some good jokes in?

It’s Official: I Am Moving To The UK

Posted by on Apr 1, 2010 in Cape Town, My life | 0 comments

So I have some fairly exciting news for all of you. You all might have heard me over the last two weeks saying that I might go to the UK, and over the last two weeks I have been in the process of organising this and it seems that as of yesterday it is confirmed.

So I will be living in the UK for just over a year from the start of September. I will be staying in London,but I am not sure where exactly yet. I will probably try and stay in a flat with someone, but I really am not sure.

I know that this will be the first that you will hear of this and I think some of my friends will be a bit pissed at this, but hey, I felt I would rather break the news to all and attempt to make sure that no one felt left out or told after someone else.

So yea. I will be gone for about 15 months and I will be back some time in December it seems.

Any questions feel free to leave a comment or what not. Hopefully this doesn’t take people too much by surprise.

Captain Awesome Heads Towards The Light

Posted by on Mar 30, 2010 in Cape Town, My life | 1 comment

Not just any light, but rather the Light. No that was not a grammatical error now by adding in a capital l in Light.

The reason that is not incorrect, is because this is for Ms Light. Someone who keeps urging me to blog!

This is for you!

/end boring, nonsense post!

PS* I will have many many updates for you during the week once I actually manage to get my head around everything else going on!

Quirk Have Sponsored My eMarketing course!

Posted by on Mar 16, 2010 in Cape Town, My life | 0 comments

So a few weeks ago I pleaded with you that “Captain Awesome Needs Your Support” in an attempt to get someone to help sponsor me the needed funding so that I could take part in the Quirk eMarketing course.

Guess who pulled through!? Quirk in connection with Get Smarter!

I was over joyed when Lyndi from Quirk got hold of me to talk about offering me sponsorship! I was over the moon really! Not only did they help me to do the course but they have provided the course free of charge to me! WOOHOO! I was really worried that the guys over at Quirk were going to milk the oppurtunity to take advantage of someone really in debt to them, but when I asked what was expected of me in the course, they simply told me to do the best that I could. I was actually a bit shocked to here that they did not even want to me to come into the office for a bit and help out some way but hey, I am grateful and that is why I am writing this!

Without the help of Quirk and Get Smarter I would not have been able to do the course and I really am thankful that they have provided me with this awesome oppurtunity.

I am pretty sure they are keeping an eye on my progress and hopefully I am doing a good enough job. I am one of 8 I think that have got 100% so far. This was only for the initial quiz from the first week but hey, I guess it still counts. I handed in my first assignment today which was really interesting!
