4 weeks down and some more to go

Hi All

Well the end of the 4th week of uni is apone me, technically next week is a holiday; well it's more of a holiday from classes. I still have a lot of homework to do over the next week. I've put a request in for more hours in a day, but despite my friends agreeing with the proposal, it has yet to be acknowledged by any major influences. :P

For my records unit, the lecturer has taken to getting us to discuss topics in small groups, and then report back on our findings to the class. The picture below was my teams contribution. I'll explain it after you have a had a look at it.

Ok, the task was to explain the relationship between, risk (represented by the ghost), how compliance to laws keeps risk managed (the pacman), and how all employees are accountable to comply to the compliance laws (the tie and shirt). To manage / control compliance and accountability is governance, (the game controller).  When presenting our findings, everyone sounded impressed with our visual representation of the question set.  

I kind of think life is to short to be serious all the time :P

Well time to hit those books.

3 weeks of uni and all is well

G'day G'day

Well, lets see what has happened to em'wa during the last week.
My weekend was quiet, my parents phoned me up on Monday to say they had a wild weekend at one of there RV clubs, boozing, laughing and well acting like teenagers. It was good to hear, but it made me feel like the parent; in that I was staying home and they were whooping it up :P

The rest of the week, was, well just boring Uni. I'm getting into the swing of things nicely. Considering I"m now officially half way through, I believe I can do it now.

During the week I did get attacked by two cats. (see picture below) Sam is cradled in my left arm and  Gandalf is on my chest. Thankfully I had my right arm free to take the picture (which is rather tricky) and use the TV remote. God knows what it would have been like if I had three cats.

Today I went into he city for the first time in some month. I went to the ABC Shop and spent well.  :P  and I had a nice lunch with my parents.

That's it for this week
Take care

It's Friday, despite the blog saying Thurs

Hi Guys,
Tnx for sticking with me.

Not much to say really, I got over my colds, uni is going OK. I've been twittering a bit more. About the most shocking news I have to tell is that, I've been kind of getting into this whole election thing. I'm actually taking things seriously, and really thinking about what I stand for, and thus who I want to vote for. This may not sound like much, but believe you me, it's a big deal for me. So yer, I'm going to vote for the Green's, as I like what they stand for. No Internet filter, better treatment of the boat people and the ability for same sex marriages.

A ta-ter-tate with Kat

Hello, pull up a chair and have a quick cup of coffee while you read on.

Well it was first week back a Uni, this was the 'introduction' week, so us students can ease our way back into things. It was good to catch up with folks too. This semester units are as follows, one on library collection management, one of resource description (cataloguing / indexing) this one is more from a library point of view. The final unit is on Records Management, which as you know, is right up my ally. Mind you, with all that said and done, the thought of becoming a library manager is not as "blaugh" as I use to think it would be.  So yer, I'm feeling good about this semester and what it has install for me.

As for the other bits, outside of Uni, well I had 2 separate colds, and 2 bouts of laryngitis :(

Ok, stay slinky guys, and take it easy
