A very cool story about a journey. I liked it. Gave me inspiration in a subtle way that I cant put my finger on to explain.

Here i am awake and coughing up phlegm for the 3rd time tonight. It has been getting progressively worse over the last week and i’m a wee bit scared of this winter being a repeat of last, where I had continual sleepless nights consisting of chornic convolsing coughing with movements not unlike those seen in the YMCA dance. Im gonna force myself to go to the doctors in the morning. I have a general disliking of going to the doctors cos I seriously always get the feeling of being ripped off. I always expect there to be a a lot of testing and pondering on my symptoms (cos im so special). I almost imagine a `house` type scenario when dealing with my common cold symptoms. But, as like always, tomorrow morning im expecting to  walk out of the doctors after my 4.2 minute inspection with a well lighter pocket and a feeling of dissapointment with advice to rest up & if im lucky, take some antibiotics 3 times a day (which i’ve started to notice that they seem to hand out for anything these days!).

Tonight when it finally clicked in my head that this can go on no longer, I did what any other computer literate n3rd would do, I googled my symptoms for cures. Which made me think… doctors must HATE the webbytubes for this!! I couldn’t think of anything more annoying then a bunch of hyperchondriacs who come to you for help but already think they know what is wrong with them and what their cure should be just because they spent 15mins on google plugging in symptoms. Naieve people who think they know more than you about your specialised field would drive me up the wall! And it makes me giggle to think that i’m one of them (well not really, I always ended up taking the doctors advice even if i did think my internet diagnosis was more legitimate, *giggle*).

Well, i’ve finished my green tea so I guess i better get my ass back into bed, my legs r freezing. Hopefully the cough will go away as im struggling to hold it back atm.

Good night,

Well, hasn’t it been a long time. Lately i’ve been super busy, mainly with developing a few contracts we’ve got on atm and organising the company. If you haven’t herd yet a friend and I are forming a website development company. Will be awesome once we’ve got our own office sorted 😀 A big thank you goes out to Jerome Paea for his work on the logo. I’ll post it up later once its finalised.

Also played another game vs IRANZ on Thursday. That felt like such a looong game. 5x 20 min quarters.. The stoppages seem to drag it out for so long. I scored to easy catch and dive tries, my overall game was nothing spectacular at all. Mike Harnett gave me a few pointers and a bit of direction so at least i have something to work on! 😀

I also went and bought some protein, multi-vit tablet & vit-c powder to try keep my body up and running with all the training going on. COB pre-season is in full swing now, we have team trainings tue, thur & sun, and stairs mon & wed. Then I try to hit the gym 4 times a week in the mornings between mon & sat. The new gym program is going great, especially since the removal of the straight leg deadlifts (i got a slap around the ears from the physio when I told him I was doing them. Apparently they were ruled out in the 60’s).

So yea, i’ll post up the logo when its finished, and also keep an eye on this URL, we should have our company website up once we’ve got some sites for our portfolio 🙂
