Josh (the blog)

Hey there. I’m Josh, a SydneyCanberra-based maker of Internets. I don’t update this very often.


Since study camp,

I have been to New Zealand; learnt to snowboard; entered a country alone for the first time; updated Facebook as a matter of first priority — surprising Claudia by turning up a day early was second, I should have reversed the two!; presented CYIADA (the name is changing, I haven’t shared it here just yet) to a large number of internal stakeholders, with whom the idea went down fairly well; started to feel on top of work; decided I’ll be doing less uni this semester (and probably will be on my own in the course, which is sad); started research into a project I’ve been wanting to get off the ground for some time now, with moderate degrees of success; and not spending nearly enough time on freelance commitments, but knowing it will provide good experience for CYIADA’s imminent implementation of similar things (yes, the freelance clients in question are aware of this motivation!).

I’ve also hit a bit of a slump in bible reading which isn’t magically solving itself… I put it down to playing too much catchup when I got back and not prioritising God’s word anywhere near as highly as I should have done. But now it’s a matter of actually resolving that before all of a sudden I’ve been back a month and still haven’t! Prayer is welcomed, of course.

I have also been sleeping well (if anti-socially?) — New Zealand does good things to you like that. I think I could quite happily live there, though a few more warm clothes would need acquisition first. That said, I have no plans to run away. Quite enough is keeping me here for the next 2 years or so, methinks. This is the latest I’ve been up in nearly a month methinks, so I’d best be off. More regular updates may be forthcoming at some point in the future. Life gets in the way of blogging sometimes — it’s not all bad!

p.s. yes, Harry Potter comes out in about seven hours. No, that does not qualify as ‘life’. (Close, though)
