Okay, I feel like such a nerd, but this is gunna be fun. Me and my friend from school, Kristian, plan to build a 1:1 scale model of The Roman Pantheon, in Minecraft! Now, one block in Minecraft is accepted as being a cube of diameter 1m, and all the scale models built in Minecraft follow this. After some research, I luckily managed to find almost all of the dimensions of the major parts of the...
Look what came in the post!
So today I got home from school to find a cardboard folder placed on my desk with this book inside it. I’d almost forgotten that I’d ordered it, and having a look through some of the stuff in it, I’m so glad I got it. It’s huge, 143 pages of Johann Sebastian here. It has an extensive preface, with tons of information about baroque performances and certain notation...

I’m actually looking forward to going back and buying a suit, I know what sizes I am, and what kind of cut, just need to choose the colour, and the shirt, tie and shoes I’ll be wearing with it. I might even buy a new watch for the occasion. I’ve never worn a suit before, but I like them. They’re...
What I've been listening to
I’ve been listening to a bit of Crepusculum lately, an instrumental solo project by guitarist Fred Baty. It features interwinding laid back acoustic guitar melodies layered with a subtle addition of mellow and soothing keyboard sounds. Great music to relax with, and it acts as the perfect soundtrack to set the mood for the good weather (when it comes along). You can listen to and download...

Quite An Annoyance
Something happened this evening with my parents, mainly my Dad, that quite annoyed me. Now this isn’t something that happens on a regular basis, generally our opinions coincide at some level at least. They were accompanying me to an interview, to Carmel College. We sat down at the table in front of the interviewer who seemed very friendly, and she began to go through my application,...
