How I Became a Famous Pickup Artist : Part 1

As far as I was concerned, she was perfect. She was at least as smart as I was, was a dancer and had the body to prove it, and had a smile that could disarm the national guard. Let's call her Julie.

So, like an earthworm stalking it's prey, I put my usual game on her. Since my last flowchart was so popular, I've made another one to show you how I dealt with the ladies back then:

Nedless to say, things went slowly. We hung out nearly every day for the last couple months of our Senior year summer vacation. Like many guys, I was totally oblivious to her attraction for me. One morning Julie came over really early while I was still sleeping, and squeezed into my twin bed with me. I woke up, and assumed that she must be tired - it didn't even occur to me that she might like me. Finally on the last week of that vacation she said to me,

Writing daily? Right...

On Alan's Journey

Funny. My last post was 'Why you should write every day'. And here it is, two weeks later, and I'm going 'Oh yeh, that's right.. I was going to write daily, wasn't I...'  The best laid plans of mice and men...

Almost a couple weeks ago I finished working for Lockheed Martin Australia. After 9 months and three contract extensions, they decided they didn't need my services any more. This was a shame, because I quite enjoyed working there, but as a contractor I know I'm only around for as long as the money and the projects last. 

Since then I've been enjoying a bit of a holiday, applying for new roles, but mostly just chilling out. I've been exploring a couple of personal projects which has occupied my time, mainly setting up a website where I can explore some creative writing, and changing my computer experiences from Windows 8 to Linux Mint. 

I do enjoy playing with new things and learning new things about them.

I found some photos I took over xmas/new year of my holiday around parts of Australia. I'm going to have to get off my ass and process them, and then publish them with a few stories around them. That's my task for next week.
