Next Year…Help!

Posted by on May 10, 2009 in Cape Town, My life | 0 comments

I have been thinking about what to do next year for ages now. Well I guess it all depends on if I pass matric or not, but hopefully I will. :P

I have always been very interested in the I.T world and followed a few blogs for many years now. I have also written for some eSports websites, so I don’t consider myself a complete n00b in the field. Now I am pretty sure that I want to go into the I.T field when I am out of school, but what to study, and what to specialize in? Some very good questions…

I went to the UCT open day yesterday. Firstly I must say that the day was pretty poorly organised. There was a lecture in the science faculty with regards to Computer Science at 12. It was only a 15 minute lecture, but then there was an Information Systems lecture in the commerce faculty at 12:15. The women in Computer Science ran over time so I arrived about five minutes late for the second lecture. Surely they should plan things better that people looking at similar courses can look at both without having to run around like a headless chicken!

Anyway, enough ranting. I am still not sure what I want to study. Information grabs my fancy a bit more as I think I would enjoy focusing on applying computers into a business environment. On the other hand, computer science does sound far more fun, but more challenging. I need 49 points for it though… :/ Another negative of Information Systems is that I would have to do accounting and economics. I can’t stand those, and I dropped them in grade 10 as soon as I could!

Pink23 Hair Salon

Posted by on Apr 29, 2009 in Cape Town, My life, Style | 0 comments

So it is my party tomorrow night! I am really keen! Everything is in place, and I decided I needed to get rid of my messy hair today, and get some style going. So that is exactly what I did.

After school, I raced through to town to Pink23 Hair Salon. My sister, mom, sister’s boyfriend and all go there, and they all reccommend it to me, so I thought I would go for it.

My sister said that Lileen was awesome, so I booked an appointment with her. After getting there, and looking around the place I was feeling confident that it was going to be a good experience. I walked in, and straight away went through to Lileen. I didn’t even wait a second. We worked out what we were going to be doing, and then I was sent to have my hair washed. Dam that was awesome! They have nice big Lazy Boy couches with foot rests and all. Comfort, combined with an Indian head massage and I was in heaven.

Anyway, I am very happy with the end product, and think that Lileen did an absolutely amazing job. I will definately be going back there! They were very professional, quick, and very friendly. The cut was only R100 as well, which was cheaper than the last place I went, and I felt the cut was also far better. Win!

They don’t have a website unfortunately, but you can drop them an email on pink23@vodamail.co.za.

My 18th

Party Time!

Party Time!

So tomorrow night is the big event. I am so stoked its not even funny. I don’t normally throw huge parties, and birthday time has never lead to any really major events for me. I have always prefered to have something smaller and chilled, but not this year. I decided to go BIG, and not hold back. After all it is my 18th, and that only comes around once.

So I have hired out a venue at Newlands Cricket ground. We had a party there already this year, and I thought it was an awesome venue so I decided so go for it. As well as the fact that I am a WPCC member, so I got it for half price! Awesome!

I didn’t get many great ideas for my theme, but in the end decided to go for “Lumo is Uno”. Not the most original or anything, but I think it is going to be awesome. Well it is my birthday so it flipping better be! So far about 200 people are attending and I am really looking forward to it. Luckily, I don’t have sport on the next day, so I can wake up with a hang over. ;)

Anyway maybe I will put up some photo’s, depending if I don’t lose the camera.

My parents have decided to leave my sister in charge, (Awesome!) and are only going to be around for the beginning of the evening. So that leaves my sister and her boyfriend in charge. Hopefully things don’t get out of control!

Seems as I have only just started my blog, I think I should give you a bit of info about myself. Let the randomness begin!

Fav. Music: I will listen to anything with a good drummer in it. I am mainly into all sorts of rock, from the good old stuff like Iron Maiden to the more new alternative bands such as Bloc Party and the Arctic Monkeys. Anything goes really. Generally, the harder and louder the better, but not too much screaming please.

Interests: Drumming, computers, sport, cars, gadgets, being lazy, eating, movies and series, and just relaxing with friends.

Location: Cape Town, South Africa.

Currently: I am in matric, and have just turned 18.

So there you have it ladies and gentleman, some info about Cpt. Awesome!
