I think it has been sufficiently long enough between my last post and this one. Though, some of you may or may not know, I have been on an exchange in Australia for the past 4.5 months, so I think that is a good reason! I had an amazing experience in Australia. I met a lot of great people, and I saw a lot (even got to pop over to New Zealand for a week!), but there is just so much more to see. Australia is a massive country, and though I was there for 4.5 months, I was at uni. So, I did have school work to do, but I managed to see as much as I could, with good grades to boot! I will definitely be heading back at some point in the hopefully not-too-distant future. I know what I want to see still, and what I want to go back and see more of!
Now that I am back, I have some plans for my online portfolio coming up!

Ah, the end of the semester. It’s a relaxing feeling… sort of?
If you were following me on Twitter, you’ll know that the strike at VIU did happen, and it lasted a month. It started on March 10th, and we were back in class on April 12th, with a semester extension to April 29th without a formal exam period (actual class end date was April 11th followed by exams).
So that was a quick couple weeks to finish things up! All of my profs were really accommodating and flexible which was great. 🙂
I’m glad summer is here, I get to work more now and have some more free time, maybe. 😛 I’ve got one, maybe two, projects lined up right now. Speaking of projects – I added three to my portfolio! They’re all for the Media Studies department at VIU. Two of them were for my directed study (Digi 405) where I focused on WordPress theming. The other was a project I did in the Spring of 2010 as my first project working with PHP, and this semester I gave it a new look, and added some new stuff to it. Go check ’em out! 🙂

Well, I’m not very good at blogging. At least not right now, when I’m busy!
It’s the middle of the semester, so I’m right in the middle of one of the busiest times of the semester. November is going to be a very busy month as I have a couple major projects going on, as well as all the other little assignments and readings, etc.
I feel like I am managing my time very well though, and I’m not getting behind which is important!
I do have some news though! I have been accepted to the VIU Exchange Program! I will hopefully be going to Australia next year for a semester exchange! I’m very excited about this, and soon I will be applying to the university I want to go to.
Anyways, this is just a little update for y’all. I can’t guarantee anything, but I’ll try to give another update before the month is over. 🙂
