Things of late have been a bit busier than I anticipated, however this isn’t a bad thing, just unexpected to a degree. The matter I mentioned with Centrelink is partially resolved; trying to get in contact with them to ask them to explain anything was ultimately useless, I effectivally gave up and decided I’d pay the back the whole amount regardless of whether it was actually fair or not. A payment plan has been set up with them (naturally Centrelink was very quick/helpful to do that), but not able to give them too much at least at this stage.

I’ve been meaning to do a blog post for some time now, for months actually but laziness and depression had gotten the better of me. Since the last post back in January things got worse, and then in the last couple of weeks, got immensely better! Thanks to a lecturer I knew at the university, I managed to get an additional assignment to allow me to complete the last subject I failed the previous semester. The good news is that once I complete the 12 weeks of work experience, I can then graduate. The sad news is, I didn’t find any work in the first half of the year, so I can’t graduate this year. But this is not a huge issue for me as I started working at a company last week as a trainee embedded software engineer, pretty much my dream (well, I’d like to be an embedded software engineer, but I digress) job. My main goal about 2-3 years ago was to just finish my course and get employment. This means I’ve effectively completed that goal, although I probably would have thought I’d be able to graduate at that time.

Well it's been quite some time since I last updated my website, and quite a few things have happened since then. Firstly, I've finished the semester for the year, it was due to be my last semester providing I passed all 4 subjects, however this was not the case. But the situation isn’t too bad, providing I can manage to complete 12 weeks work experience before a certain date, I can apply for an additional exam for the subject to allow me to finish up the course this year. The thing for the moment is just finding out a position, but the free time has enabled me to work on projects and generally start working on parts I’ve wanted to get working for some time.

I've been busy with university work and also getting a job (hooray!) so I haven't been doing much for projects or content for this site. The good news is, I'm on a break from the job as it only runs during uni semesters and I've finished my exams.

Life is currently a little busy with multiple projects going on through various stages of planning (some still in the concept stage) as well as various assignments and tasks being required being done at my university. The workload isn't due to ease up any time soon as I plan to finish off my course by the end of the year.
