John Williamson is a great guy, don’t get me wrong, I like his songs (unusual for me, I know), he portrays the Aussie way so well, but you can only here the same album of his so many times.
My boss has had one album of his playing at work for the past 2 weeks. The same album, over and over. It has some great songs on it, but you can only hear it so many times without starting to go slightly crazy.
Even if it was rotating with a couple of other CD’s it would be fine, but in a 5 hour shift, you hear the same songs at least 5 times! That’s a little much if you ask me. Especially after an ITB006 (Networking) exam at 8:30 this morning!
The exam went pretty well I think, there were a few things I couldn’t remember, like how to do the working on a cyclic redundancy check, and a couple of other questions that I no longer remember, but aside from that it was pretty good.
Again it surprised me how much of it was exactly the same as from the two practice exams, but hey, who’s complaining right? Even better, there was nothing from the practical tutorials, it was completely based on the lectures and the theory from tutorial’s. Which is particularly good since I didn’t actually go to all of the practicals.
I followed most of the lecture material fairly well so I didn’t think the question’s based on them were very hard, and 30 of them were multiple choice anyway, with the other 5 being short answer questions split into 3-5 questions each.
The most any individual question was worth from memory was 4 marks, with 1 and 2 each being the average marks per question so I think it should be a pretty easy exam to do well in.
I also donated blood after the exam. It’s the first time since I moved up to Brisbane that I’ve been able to donate when I’ve been near one of the blood banks or the mobile donor centre’s. Every other time, I’ve had to be somewhere in the next 5 minutes or so, or I’ve been sick or had a headache or something like that. I almost walked past it this time without thinking but they had a big sign up saying they particularly need O blood types at the moment, so since I’m an O positive that caught my eye and lo and behold they took my blood. Filled a bag in 12 minutes, that’s a personal best!
Now everyone that’s able, go donate blood! It’s good, I promise. It doesn’t hurt much at all and whatever pain you do get usually goes away within a few minutes anyway, so do it!
