Having a hiatus from the world of blogging

7 Feb

I have decided now to have a hiatus from the world of blogging. I thank everyone for the interest in The Indie Aspie & my other blog, Petesmusic’s Blog. It was an interesting experience for myself. I was in a Sydney Bloggers Group in Sydney, Australia before the group discontinued months ago. I had an opportunity to meet some other bloggers face to face. My latest challenge at present is I am now studying Information Technology at a technical college in Sydney’s Western Suburbs, Australia. My main goal for now is to be a web designer. I am now doing the most basic Information Technology at present. There might be a day when I will doing a blog post. It is farewell from me.

I seem to be happier when the Ashes Test Cricket is on. Ashes Test Cricket is between Australia & England. So far two tests have being played. The third test is on this coming Friday. I have being watched much as possible on television from my home in Sydney, Australia. If not watching TV, then keeping posted on my smartphone. Either reading Twitter feeds or using the smartphone browser. It is a good distraction for me. It does signify the Australian summer. I like watching cricket but hated playing cricket at school. I was a hopeless cricket player. I could not bowl, bat & had butter fingers for fielding. I am interested in the numbers & the many statistics that signifies cricket. I do barrack for Australia. So far so good. Australia are leading the current series 2-0. But there are three tests remaining. My prediction is for the Australia to get the Ashes back. A good ending to end the year of 2013. I wish all followers a Happy Christmas & a Happy New Year.

Back from the Melbourne trip for the better I hope

I have being feeling mentally stale for the last few months. I decided to spend a few days in Melbourne to get away from the blues of my home city. My home city is Sydney, Australia. Sydney is the largest city in Australia. I made a decision to go on a holiday to Melbourne, Australia. Melbourne is the second largest city in Australia. One reason is that I was very pissed off with the social welfare industry of Australia. Being unemployed from paid work for four years is another reason as well. I booked the trip to Melbourne on the internet. I arrived in Melbourne on March 8, 2013 & left there on March 12, 2013. It turned out that March 11, 2013 was a Labour Day Public Holiday in Melbourne & the rest of the state of Victoria. Melbourne is the state capital of Victoria. I had a good trip & hope to be back for the positive. Beside blogging, I can’t say what I will be doing for now. The main thing I can think of is to keep healthy. Hope for the best. Hope for some good news down the track.
