Been a bit stumped for topics so i decided to learn something about every word in the dictionary and try and relate that back to the world around me.... This may be a complete train wreck so please bare with me.


A (black adder the Third) - Impersonal Pronoun it doesn't really mean anything

A (Queensland) - How one ends a sentence in northern Australia, "So you're from Queensland A?"

A - Without eg.- Agnostic, Atheism, Within A.

A - Singular (ie. one , not two, nor three, four is completely out of the question unless you are subtracting three.)

A - The first letter of the Alphabet

A - Musical note amongst the lines of Evelyn Goodwins Butt Deserves Framing, and FACE which make up the spaces on lines for musical notation.

A (with a small circle on top) - Angstrom an atomic measurement equal to 1*10^-10 of a metre, ie. really bloody small. Used in measuring the diametre of George Bush's brain as well as atoms, atomic bond lengths, and electromagnetic radiation.

A -a fictitious Grade applied to school work, as opposed to the grade of "please see me after class" which was applied to my work.

To quote Black Adder

Black Adder : AB
Balrick: "A Buzzing Thing"
Black Adder: Baldrick i mean something which starts with A B.
Baldrick: Honey? Honey starts with a bee.

I thought my first post back would write itself, there is so much i want to say.

Life up here is so different. The people are different the roads are different, the weather, nothing is the same as the life i left behind. It is scary and auxilerating at the same time. So much lost, the safety net, the friends, old habits and routines. However there is so much to gain, new friends, new adventures, new stories, new ways of seeing the world.

Everything i have been through in the last 6 months is shaping the way i see the world. Sudden shock of learning the world you live in is just a sugar coated topping, that the world beneath that is harsher than you could ever imagine.

Paradigm Shift:

Is changing the way we use information to view a situation. This is best described in the following analogy. (sorry about the vulgarity)

Imagine a small boy reahing up his Grand mothers skirt you see this from a distance, grandma does not seem upset by it and is actively encouraging it.. Perversion is generally your first thought.

Now someone tells there is a bee in nanas skirt, and she is alergic, boy goes from potential deviate to hero.

That's a Paradigm Shift.

That is what i am undergoing, no not geratric entymology, but a change in the way i interpret the world around me. I am hoping this is for the best.

I am still trying to come to grips with so much up here, i am always challenged at work, i am making a lot of mistakes, getting used to new roads and not getting lost. For those who have been to our nations capital this is an easy thing to do.

Any hoo this is my life right now, sorry this post is slightly self indulgent but i am just trying to see the world clearly and give you a heads up into my world at the moment.
