Hi Phil and Cop Colin :) I also managed to get on the blog!! Yay. So how are you guys? I’ve enrolled in 3 units but am still a little unsure re: selections… Good to talk to you both as I’ve been feeling a little apprehensive.

avatar

Phil

July 3, 2009 10:23

Hey Kim, Way to go to u 2. :) . Let me know when you want to be an author. then you can make posts. They dont have to be public. i am thinking it might be a good idea to meet up on campus and have a quick ‘mini’ workshop on how it all works here at Exultant. What do you think?

avatar

kim

July 3, 2009 10:23

yep, sounds like an idea… as you know I’m not very savvy at this kind of thing :( but am eager to learn. Am hoping to meet with you guys prior to commencement to get some advice and just touch base if you are both into it… I work Thursdays but besides that any day is good. You’ve done really well with exultant Phil. Cheers.

avatar

Phil

July 3, 2009 10:23

Maybe we can catch up on campus one day next week?

avatar

kim

July 3, 2009 10:23

avatar

Phil

July 3, 2009 10:23

Yep sounds good, I will check whats good from this end and we’ll work it out.

avatar

kim

July 3, 2009 10:23

Colin

July 5, 2009 10:23

Hi guys, I’m all for meeting on campus to find out more about how this blog works!!! So far I have enrolled in my foundation unit. I have chosen re-inventing Australia, I am only doing the one unit this semester to see how I cope, if I find it easy enough I will probably do two next semester, I am also going to check if my school does a summer class and I may do an elective then. Let me know if you are meeting for coffee, as I would love to catch up – I need to remember to check the blo more often!!

avatar

Phil

July 6, 2009 10:23

I should have a better idea of times that are good for me tonight. I will let you know.

July 7, 2009 10:23

HI COLIN!! :) I’ve missed you… look forward to seeing you soon. Am still in the progress of selecting units and times?? and dealing with a little anxiety, though not unusual for me as I am a bit of a stress-head. Have either of you got any news re: the other on-trackers? It would be great to get more of us involved. Anyways talk to you soon. I check the blog every other day. Cheers

avatar

starry1

July 7, 2009 10:23

ok… now I am confused!! The blog wouldn’t let me use my name… when I used starry1 it submitted my message. Oh by the way this is kim?? :o

avatar

Phil

July 7, 2009 10:23

good morning kim! You have to log in and then it will automatecally show you as being kim. Anyone can post on this chat board using any name as long as it is not already taken by a registered user. Does that help:)

avatar

Phil

avatar

kim

July 16, 2009 10:23

hi guys! I am also looking forward to starting but am also a little anxious and am trying not to feed into that anxiety… and yeah I think it does help being around others and talking. :) . Hey Phil god on facebook was a laugh! Hey have you guys looked at booklists yet? I see there are as yet no book requirements for ‘reinventing oz’. Depressing weather and bad hangover ;(

avatar

Phil

July 16, 2009 10:23

I just texted the exultant address to Fahid so am hoping he will join in.

avatar

Phil

July 16, 2009 10:23

Apparently the guild shop has second hand ones and there are always copies in the reserve….I’d better go and have a look to see what books I’m going to need.

avatar

Phil

July 16, 2009 10:23

It would be great for Fahid to join in..the more the merrier :)

avatar

Phil

July 16, 2009 10:23

My ‘O’ day lecture – Wednesday 29 July 0930 – 1145 ECL4

avatar

kim

July 16, 2009 10:23

not sure but I think mine is Tuesday and Wednesday but I haven’t copied down times and locations yet. ohoh I feel that anxious feeling coming on!!

avatar

kim

July 16, 2009 10:23

I’m sharing a computer with Krissy, my daughter, and am wondering if I should be organising my own computer… but being very computer illiterate as u know Phil I’m not sure about setting it up?? We have wireless broadband so would I need a connection of some sort in my room to set one up or not? Do you know if they have laptops or just desktops at the computer recycling place?

avatar

Phil

July 16, 2009 10:23

I only saw desktops but they may have laptops….my guess is with both you and Krissy having a BIG year you will be better off having one each

avatar

kim

July 16, 2009 10:23

thanks mayb I should visit the uni and have a look in the booksop and guild bookshop and the computer place.

avatar

Phil

July 16, 2009 10:23

Sometimes its best to go for brand new so you get the warranty and the new ones are much more ‘plug and play’ finding there own networks, inbuilt cameras etc…

avatar

kim

July 16, 2009 10:23

sorry Phil I understood the first half of your sentence but then u started speaking in a language i am not familiar with :)

avatar

kim

July 16, 2009 10:23

+ can’t really afford a new one except mayb a notebook. Unless I can get a scholarship…

avatar

Phil

July 16, 2009 10:23

Yes there are computer scholarships available. I meant that new ones are easier to set up :?

avatar

kim

July 16, 2009 10:23

thanks. I’ll look in2 it.

avatar

Phil

July 16, 2009 10:23

avatar

kim

July 24, 2009 10:23

I’m a little confused :( I was looking at my timetable and 4 TLC120 it comes up as “Weeks: 1-2, 4-6, 8-12″ for the lecture and the tuts. Does yours read the same? because I was under the impression that TLC started week 3

avatar

Phil

July 24, 2009 10:23

Hi Kim, I am getting confused by this as well…I am just going out now but am planning on emailing the lecturer S.Veitch@murdoch.edu.au when I get back.

avatar

Phil

July 24, 2009 10:23

Actually Kim I have just emailed the lecturer, I will let you know the outcome.

July 24, 2009 10:23

Oh by the way hi Griselda :)

avatar

Cop Colin

July 24, 2009 10:23

Hi everyone – I’m now enrolled in TLC 120 but I had to change to Tuesday for the foundation unit tutorial, I went to the Guild bookshop today and got all my books second hand, saved about $70 my timetable reads the same for TLC 129 that is weeks 1-2 etc, I also thought it commenced in week four, we shall soon find out, I guess.

avatar

kim

July 24, 2009 10:23

Hi Colin. What books did you get from the guild b’shop bsides ‘independent learning’?

avatar

Cop Colin

July 24, 2009 10:23

I tried to reply Kim but it got lost somewhere, so…..here goes again. I bought Guide to Learning from the Guild for $15 costs new $43.43, Learning Companion $10 cost new $44.36 and Understanding Academic Culture for $25, new it’s $39.77 so as you can see I saved about $70. Cheers

avatar

kim

July 27, 2009 10:23

sorry to hear about your house :( Actually Phil I am feeling highly anxious, ridiculously so!!!!

avatar

kim

July 27, 2009 10:23

Hoping I can overcome this feeling to make it 2morrow….feel stupid.

avatar

Phil

July 27, 2009 10:23

House wise I am VERY anxious but not too bad uni wise…wednesday might be a different story though…

avatar

Phil

July 27, 2009 10:23

i am absolutely convinced that you will be fine at uni…i think your made for the place

avatar

kim

July 27, 2009 10:23

Thanks so much Phil :)

avatar

kim

July 27, 2009 10:23

So when do you start house hunting? You guys should look over this way… very handy 4 uni.

avatar

Phil

July 27, 2009 10:23

going to start today…been n northbridge now for 14 years and feel quite settled in the area so not sure about going bush :wink:

avatar

kim

July 27, 2009 10:23

lol. Yeah I can understand that… I lived in Mt Hawthorn for years and loved it before we moved over this way. Anyway I have seen a house for rent on Forrest Road, probably not what you’re looking for but anyway…

avatar

Phil

July 27, 2009 10:23

What suburb is that?

avatar

kim

July 27, 2009 10:23

avatar

kim

July 28, 2009 10:23

I spoke to Yvonne Haigh today and have since changed my unit from TLC120 to Ideas in Action which is a multidisciplinary unit. Apparently TLC120 is basically repetitive of on-track.

avatar

Phil

July 28, 2009 10:23

Mmmm…tell me more, i quite liked TLC because it was a rehash….but….

avatar

Phil

July 28, 2009 10:23

How was your day? i am off to check out a property this arvo :)

avatar

Phil

July 28, 2009 10:23

multidisciplinary…wooo :???:

avatar

Cop Colin

July 28, 2009 10:23

Hi all, well I’m sticking with TLC 120 I’m not unhappy about repeating some stuff, if it’s familiar it should be easier, logically, one would think??? and multidisciplinary, what exactly does that mean in uni speak?

avatar

kim

July 28, 2009 10:23

sorry had to drop my daughter off…yeah I liked the idea of TLC120 for basically the same reasons as Colin mentioned but Yvonne was quite firm in her advice that it is a repeat not more advanced version of on-track and that my time and money would be better spent on another unit. Interdisciplinary, as I understood it mearns it is relevant to all units and I believe they said it is a requirement at some stage, but I could be wrong about that??? Anyway have bought my books now and changed my timetable??? So Phil where are you guys looking, Northbridge?

avatar

Phil

July 28, 2009 10:23

hi kim, just had a look Ideas in Action…it looks great but maybe too ‘Social Sciences and Humanities’ for my current plans

avatar

Phil

July 28, 2009 10:23

How was the rest of O day for you?

avatar

kim

July 28, 2009 10:23

Hi Phil :) yeah it was a good day. Colin and I hung out together, had a hotdog, went to the bookshop. My timetable is now totally sprawled all over the place!! Am going to try and look a bit closer and see what, if anything, I can adjust to make it a bit more compact as it stands now I have to go every day…

avatar

Phil

July 28, 2009 10:23

mmm hotdog….i am planning on just doing the main morning session tomorrow…how were all your potential classmates?

avatar

Phil

July 28, 2009 10:23

I knew this would happen….now I’m feeling anxious :(

avatar

kim

July 28, 2009 10:23

lol!!! Don’t be silly Phil :) I’m the one to feel anxious… I was looking 4ward to being with u guys…now in the blink of an eye I’ve changed everything and even bought the books!!!!!!! ;( You’ll feel more relaxed after orientation 2morro

avatar

Phil

July 28, 2009 10:23

I am sure/hope there will be plenty of opportunities to catch up…anxiety wise i am always the big man until just before the event and then i fall to pieces

avatar

Phil

July 28, 2009 10:23

Well maybe not that bad

avatar

kim

July 28, 2009 10:23

Hi Kim…busy day for me yesterday, got a nice rundown from my school on what they offer in the ‘O’ lecture and also looking for potential places to live!

avatar

kim

July 30, 2009 10:23

mornimg Phil :) glad to hear u enjoyed your ‘O’ day. I have re-enrolled in TLC after realizing my timetable was totally unworkable! I was looking at having to go in everyday…I feel relieved and even though I have already bought the reader for ‘Ideas in Action’ I may try to do that during the break after this semester if it is available. Any luck with your househunting?

avatar

Phil

July 30, 2009 10:23

House hunting, so so, The main thing for us at the moment is working out exactly what we want from the new place…in this sense its a real opportunity…..

avatar

Phil

July 30, 2009 10:23

On a purely selfish level I glad your back in TLC :)

Hi everyone . One day over . I don’t know whether anyone else had the difficulty I had in understanding what Brad Patit was saying when he spoke. Lets hope we don’t ahave too many lectures from him. Well when I got home I looked up the excercises to be done for the library , hell fire I thought that I knew the workings of the library and how to locate boks etc but the detail gone into in the 6 modules is enormous , you need a phd,.to understand it.. Oh well I will just have to struggle on!!!! I am back at Murdoch tomorrow for my first tutorial- did anyone have a tute today ? Hope its a lot easier than the library assignment.. I will catch up with you all again next Monday , I don’t think anyone else is at Uni tomorrow and thats the only time I am there . Don’t work too hard .Cheers for now .

Hi guys :) great to see you all today!! I was having a go at LITE sections 1 and 2 (didn’t do the quizes tho) and found I couldn’t use italics for book titles bcos I didn’t know how to access italics….also one exercise, search by author’s name and title I couldn’t tab down from the author’s name and the pop-up kept telling me the name came after ‘In’, has anyone else had any difficulty??

Hey Kim, Sally, on campus today, been chatting to Colin. Now in Learning common south wing 2, about to give lite a go.

Hi all! :) How’s every1 going? How was the FDN150 tut colin and phil? And have u had your photography lect yet phil? I had my 1st sociology lect y’day, quite a few people from Terrorism and Security colin.

avatar

cop colin

August 6, 2009 10:23

Hi Kim the FDN150 tute was pretty easy . The tutor told us about the course and basically said that if you read the eeader and have some idea of it you will pass . Our tutor allows you to read your presentation and remaion seated whilst you are doing it so Kim you shsould not have any problems , you are allowed to write out your presentation and then read it .. does’nt seem too bad .. I have just received an email re TLC 120 saying that the readfer is now available at the bookshop , does anyone know what the reasder is? Played golf today , again like a dog , maybe the universe is telling me something. Well there is not much happening here , I habe to complete two reasdings for next Tuesday so I better get on with it. See you all on Monday . cheers…

avatar

kim

August 6, 2009 10:23

Hi Colin. Thanks for the info. Glad your tut went well, which tutor did you get? Good luck with your readings, See you Monday :) Not sure about TLC120 reader but we can have a look on Monday after the lecture.

cop colin

August 7, 2009 10:23

Hi there . I manged to get hold of the reader for TLC120 , I apologise for my typing error , but wwhen I type on the comment the words are so faint I can hardly see them and am not sure that I have made any mistakes or not, I also have the problem that I type too fast. My tutor for Re-inventingi Australia is Allan Royle , nearly as old as me , he seems OK ,very laid back. OK is Friday night , have been out for Chinese , now time to go and watch the cricket , see you all on Monday , I will be at Uni at about 9am, I will catch up with you at the smokers corner.

Phil

August 8, 2009 10:23

Hi all,long couple of days..Photography challenging but will give it my best shot, My tutor for FDN150 is Paul Pule (eat your heart out Kim), a real live wire.Colin I will give the input box a little restyle over the weekend.

avatar

kim

August 9, 2009 10:23

Paul Pule?? :) lucky u! Is he a good tutor? Mine is Allan Royle, same as Colin

avatar

Phil

August 9, 2009 10:23

Yea, he seems pretty switched on and has a very engaging style. All of our assessment submissions are going to be online – is it the same for you guys?

Hi everyone, thanks for the comment box tweaking Phil, I can see much better now!!! You are pretty smart!!! Well I have got involved in the euthanasia debate and written a letter to the west. I firmly believe that we should be allowed to make our own decisions regarding our bodies at a time when our faculties are still ok, I think Barnett and Ripper are arrogant, out of control bastards who should be running a small country in south america. Thank goodness we hand in our assignments as I would never trust myself totally on-line. C U 2morrow,

avatar

kim

August 9, 2009 10:23

Morning Colin :) Good on u for writing to the West! I’m with u on that issue. 2000 words Phil?? A bit scary but you’ll be right I’m sure. See you guys at the OTG 2morrow. Time to do my reading and 2 update my diary.

Phil

August 9, 2009 10:23

No worries Colin, easier for everyone I think…I agree euthania wise. You should do a post on it! I would be interested to read your views.

I don’t know !!!! I started the LITE programme , 60% for the 1st quiz , 20% for the next one its enough to drive a person mad!! I am not game to try the next three. How is everyone finding the 250 word essay . When you have to define the single most important element peculiar to the Australian identity , does this have to come from the reading or can it be your own idea? I am spitting the dummy allready , golf even though it is pretty bad is looking better and better :>(

avatar

August 12, 2009 10:23

Hey Colin, i didn’t do too badly on LITE, did them today but was surprised with some of the answers…haven’t thought about/looked at the essay yet.

I attended uni on Friday for the workshop on reading and notemaking and thought that I may see some of you there but the times must have clashed as I saw no-one. I still have not completed the Lite programme , after getting 60% for the 1st one and 20% for the second one I am demoralised and am giving it a miss for a while. Well tomorrow is TLC 120 , lets see what happens there. Have managed to complete the 250 word esay due week 4 for Re-inventing Aust.,lets home the results are better than for the Lite questions..See u all tomorrow , its time now to go and watch 60 minutes.

Summary on what ? Had my first 120 tute with Colin Beasley , he seems to be a good tutor but there is certainly a fair bit of work to be done for this unit. Hope you managed to survive the after effects of the demon drink Kim . Who do you and Phil have as a tutor for TLC 120? Pleased to see that you have managed to find accomodation Phil , now comes the hard part , moving in. At least once you have settled you will be able to concentrate on uni. I have just finished the three readings dor Re-inventing Australia , have a tute on these readings in about an hour and a half – hope I know what he is talking about, we will soon find out. Have not even managed to start one reading for TLC 120 yet never mind find words for the glossary , will have to get my finger out later this week Well all the best for the remainder of the week I wil catch up with youi all next Monday as after today that will be the next time I am at uni. Cheers.

Hi Kim sorry to hear you are not well hope you feel better soon and that it is only a hangover and not the dreaded lurgie. Yes Phil Colin Beasley seems to be pretty good but he certainly dishes out the work. I suppose that is better than not being interested , he is certainly keen. Well I have completed Lite at last , did not do all that well but good enough to obtain an overall pass..Phil when you say the FDN150 commentary what are you talking about …. I must be thick or else asleep when the ltutor is talking..Will have to have a look at FDN150 later on in the week.

Morning guys and thanks for positive vibes :) Phil I don’t know if I will be able to make it to lecture today…just gonna see how i feel this arvo. I’ll call you re: catching up for that coffee?

avatar

Phil

August 19, 2009 10:23

No worries Kim, I’m feeling less than 100% myself

avatar

Phil

August 19, 2009 10:23

Colin, commentary is what I’m calling the 250 word essay for FDN150

Cop Colin

August 19, 2009 10:23

Morning all, I have a question hope you guys can help, Learning Log Section 1 – has anyone any idea if you just handwrite the answers into the reader or would you create a separate document and type it up like an assignment, told you I was thick!!!

avatar

Phil

August 19, 2009 10:23

I’m going to type it up like an assignment

avatar

Cop Colin

August 19, 2009 10:23

Thanks Phil, I’ve e-mailed Colin Beasley to clarify but I would prefer to type it as an assignment

avatar

Phil

August 19, 2009 10:23

Let me know what Colin says, I hope I’m right. :0

avatar

kim

August 19, 2009 10:23

I don’t know either… I’ve just typed the question followed by a short paragraph answer?

avatar

kim

August 19, 2009 10:23

i.e. 8 questions = 8 answers. I hope that is ok

avatar

Phil

August 19, 2009 10:23

Sounds good to me

avatar

Cop Colin

August 19, 2009 10:23

According to Colin B. either is OK, I have done the same as you Kim i.e. typed the questions followed by my answers, which in the main are one or two sentences :>) hope you are feeling better Kim, I’m off to see the specialist – probably going to get a jab in my backside, can’t wait!!

avatar

kim

August 19, 2009 10:23

Goodo…thanks Colin :) Ouch I don’t like the sound of that!! hope he’s gentle? Talk soon. I’m not going to my lecture, I’ll watch it on lectopia…have to get better for work 2morro

August 19, 2009 10:23

Hi guys, I’m feeling a bit left out. You’ve all got big school stuff to talk about. Don’t suppose you want to hear about O’ Hagan, Greene or footprints? No, I didn’t think so.

Phil

August 20, 2009 10:23

Hi Sally, This big kid going into shock :shock: with workload….footprints will always have a special place in my heart.

avatar

August 20, 2009 10:23

Are you feeling bit better yet Kim?Hi phil, was your photography a lecture or were you doing things with your photos?

avatar

Phil

August 20, 2009 10:23

Photography was hands on playing with cameras so was very helpful for the novices such as myself

avatar

kim

August 20, 2009 10:23

Phil I’m in for an 11.30 lecture in the SS building I’ll be in the on-track garden if you’re in. Hi Sally :) and Colin. Anyway talk 2morro

Hi Kim, see you there.

August 21, 2009 10:23

And you’ll have a whole new house to organize your green self in. That’s the trouble with renting, you have to work with what’s already there. But, If your heart’s in the right place everything else follows

avatar

Phil

August 21, 2009 10:23

Actually the site also provides advice for renters :) so thats good.

avatar

sally o

August 21, 2009 10:23

Good o. I’ll check it out later. At the moment I’m in overdue portfolio mode. You know how slow I am. I’ve just finished the O’Hagan summary and it’s taken me all day. But I stuck at it and it got done.:-) :-) :-)

All good :)

kim

August 22, 2009 10:23

Phil for TLC summary with the bit about ‘key concepts’ do we expand on the key concepts in the reader? eg. first year experience…and write a bit about it? What do you think?

avatar

Phil

August 22, 2009 10:23

I am working on my Portfolio Concept Outline. I met the owner of a tatoo shop yesterday and he agreed to give me all areas access to photograph (document) the day to day activities…I am very happy about this…i am hoping I can do my vision justice…

avatar

Phil

August 22, 2009 10:23

Ummm…do justice to my vision :)

avatar

kim

August 22, 2009 10:23

Sounds like a really interesting concept!! How long will you spend documenting it?

avatar

kim

August 22, 2009 10:23

I’m sure you will do your vision justice, in fact I can already get a vision of it myself

avatar

Phil

August 22, 2009 10:23

I hope to spend two full days on site from go to woe, hope to get around 500 images to work through for the final 10 image portfolio

avatar

Phil

August 22, 2009 10:23

I’m a little bit surprised at how genuinely excited I am with the project.

avatar

Phil

August 22, 2009 10:23

after just 1 minute in the place my creative juices were overflowing

avatar

Phil

August 22, 2009 10:23

Eeeeuw!

avatar

kim

August 22, 2009 10:23

yeah I can imagine because it’s creative…I’d like to eventually do an elective with a creative element to it…artistic that is.

avatar

kim

August 22, 2009 10:23

What was the Eeeeuw! Phil?? :)

Phil

August 22, 2009 10:23

Haha you dag!! I think I’m procrastinating! I’d better get something done! Talk soon. But what about ‘key concepts’??

avatar

Phil

August 22, 2009 10:23

Same here but WHAT about key concepts? :-?

avatar

Cop Colin

August 23, 2009 10:23

Hello workers, Well, I haven’t done much work this week-end, done a bit of reading on Friday but nothing else so haven’t looked at ‘key concepts’ going to print my essay now as it’s due Tuesday, tattoo shops sound a lot more interesting than ‘identity’ but perhaps those who hide behind tattoos have an identity crisis!!! Maybe I should be studying pscy. yeah Gods, don’t think so as my attitude is ‘suck it up’ C U all tomorrow g’night from Cop Colin

Cop Colin

August 24, 2009 10:23

Hey Phil, Can I pick your computer brain? For some reason my e-mail at home has sudenly refused to open any links, doesn’t matter where they are from, it’s as if something somewhere has been either disabled or enabled, e.g. if I get a notice from Murdoch I can’t open any of the links, is this serious, have I done something stupid? :>(

avatar

Phil

August 25, 2009 10:23

Hi Colin, I have emailed you my phone number, give me a call if your still having problems.

avatar

Cop Colin

August 27, 2009 10:23

Good luck with the move Phil, it’s a horrible job, Fiona and I moved into this house three years ago and we still have boxes of ‘stuff’ in the garage and I’m sure we moved boxes into this house that we had from the house before the last one although she denies it!!! Hope the presentation goes OK Kim, I’m sure its your germs I caught!!

Cop Colin

August 31, 2009 10:23

Hey Phil, I’d love to help but you know how it is…. got a one on one with my tutor this morning at 9.30 then in the library to look for a book, open day was ok but didn’t see anyone I knew, plenty of people around though, music was a bit too loud for an old timer like me!!

avatar

Phil

August 31, 2009 10:23

Yea yea I know :) …Haven’t arranged my one on one yet.

avatar

Phil

August 31, 2009 10:23

avatar

kim

August 31, 2009 10:23

morning all :) Colin hope you are feeling better! I haven’t arranged my one on one yet… I’m going to make mine next week. You can email Pam and arrange a time but I haven’t got round to it yet. Good to hear your move went well and I’d love to come help with the cleaning but I’m sure I’ve got something on…….???!!!!

avatar

kim

August 31, 2009 10:23

Hmmmm… trying to get motivated! I’ve got to get a presentation for FDN prepared for next week and start working on 3 essays :( my brain is mush just thinking about it.

Now there’s an idea :idea:

avatar

kim

August 31, 2009 10:23

so are you feeling a little settled and happy phil?

avatar

Phil

August 31, 2009 10:23

Yes a lot a better, still a lot to do this week, but am really happy with the new place and have been in contact with Luke so can see that light and am reasonably certain its not a train!

avatar

kim

August 31, 2009 10:23

good to hear you’ve heard from Luke. Glad things are good. Anyways talk 2 u soon, have a great day. When are you going to do your 1 on 1?

Cop Colin

August 31, 2009 10:23

Hi Phil, Fiona and I are in the process of redecorating, we have a couple of black and white framed prints Anthony Crickmay and Spencer Powell that you are welcome to have if you can use them, otherwise they’re going to the next swapmeet for our Bali orphanage fundraiser. One on one went OK but I need to put more detail into all my stuff, see ex coppers don’t give away too much!!!

avatar

Cop Colin

August 31, 2009 10:23

Oh oh. Fiona tells me it should be Rowell not Powell – says any idiot would know that, sorry.

avatar

Phil

September 1, 2009 10:23

hi Colin, thanks for the offer but I think it would be better for the prints to benefit the Bali orphanage…i have heard of both these photographers and like their work but we haven’t got enough wall space for the art we have collected over the years.

avatar

Cop Colin

September 1, 2009 10:23

No worries Phil, know what you mean about wall space!!

September 2, 2009 10:23

Busy boy Colin!! You two are making me feel guilty! You’re both so damn productive…:) Are you feeling a bit better Colin? I hope so…I’m still not 100% but better than I was. Yeah Phil my presentation went ok which for me is good. I am also presently working on TLC summaries, etc. looking at the 2 readings for next week, organising my FDN presentation for next week and trying to think about upcoming essays!!! Hmmmmmmm… Glad to hear you are settling in.

Phil

September 2, 2009 10:23

As always c&c will do just nicely when things start to pile up…the way things are going for me it looks like I’ll be starting behind the 8 ball next week

avatar

Phil

September 2, 2009 10:23

Well I got it in at the last minute but you know how it is….more time would have meant a better finished product

kim

September 2, 2009 10:23

Hi Guys, Been reading your chats for the week. None of your NTWs sound like youv’e eased the pressure off. I haven’t had a chance to catch up with you all because Iwas so busy getting my P/folio in ON THE DUE DATE!!! It’s done. Now I’ve got an essay to write so I’ll still be going in on my NTW cos I don’t procrastinate quite as much. So If you’re around come and grab me for c+c. Did you say 3 essays Kim?

avatar

kim

September 4, 2009 10:23

Morning all, once again Sally well done, I’ve just had a massage so feel on top of the world and ready to seriously tackle my oral presentation the subject of which is Aboriginal issues, refulgent Phil, now there’s a word I could use that’s impressive!!!

avatar

Phil

September 9, 2009 10:23

So the massage has left you feeling refulgent?

avatar

Cop Colin

September 9, 2009 10:23

Absolutely refulgent Phil, sounds kinda decadent eh?

avatar

Phil

September 9, 2009 10:23

Indeed :)

How is every1? Sounds like that massage did you good Colin. How’s the new house Phil?

Feeling pretty happy with myself…HD for my first photography assignment!!

avatar

sally o

September 10, 2009 10:23

HD? Well done. Seems like there ain’t nothing we On Trackers can’t do. You were refulgent before you got your assessment. How are you now? Seriously now, that’s incredible.Well done.

avatar

Phil

September 10, 2009 10:23

Thanks…my refulgency is waxing and waning as the anxiety of living up to the promise of my concept outline sets in…

September 10, 2009 10:23

Are you all up to date…luxuriating in it :) ?

avatar

sally o

September 10, 2009 10:23

Done and dusted. Now its my NTW for real. I’m thinking of going in this arvo for a Womans Collective meeting at 4.30. It feels like I’ ve really earned time out. Have you seen the Hubble Photos I emailed.

avatar

Cop Colin

September 10, 2009 10:23

Hi everyone, well done on the assignment Phil, I got a D+ for my essay on Australian Identity, I’ve been writing all day today trying to get up to date wth my reading summaries, not sure if I’m on the right track but you can only do your best, seems like my refulgency is also waxing and waning!!

avatar

sally o

September 11, 2009 10:23

Go Colin, That is distinction + isn’t it. I’m still getting used to a D being a good thing, Coming from the old school a D was not the greatest, I have to look twice. Is this the subject you were having concerns about understanding Brad Petit? If so , doubly well done.

avatar

Cop Coin

September 11, 2009 10:23

Thanks Sally , I am like you I keep remembering when a D was not very good,. I have to start the next day or so on two essays, I don’t even know what I am going to write about as I have nkot decided on the subject , so at the moment I really have got problems. Am off down the coffee shop for a coffee , will think about it later. Have a good day everyone.

September 11, 2009 10:23

Well according to my calculations I have Fri,Sat,Sun and Monday to get it done so I should stop stressing out. . Am now going to surf the net and see what I can find out , gooddnight all , see you on Monday if not before.

Yummy mummies hey. What are they exactly? Is that a smiley wannabe in your comment or are you just being creative with punctuation? ;-)

avatar

Cop Colin

September 18, 2009 10:23

Hi Sally, it’s a smilie wanna be – all I can manage with creative punctuation, and as for the yummy mummies well, I think they’re all yummy really, got far more patience than I have ever hand and will ever have!!

Cop Colin

September 18, 2009 10:23

Sorry Sally, I went out to my local chinese for tea, very nice too, I see Stl Kilda won the footy and are into the grand final, now I’ll try another smilie : -)

Cop Colin

September 18, 2009 10:23

See, it still didn’t work..

avatar

Phil

September 19, 2009 10:23

Hey Colin, I think you had an extra space in your last smilie attempt but in any case you’ll need to include the smilie near the beginning of you message for it to be visible

avatar

Cop Colin

September 19, 2009 10:23

Hey Phil, do I need to download a programme first? I know you sent me information before and I thought I had done what I needed to do but maybe not, wish I had just half your technical skill.

Phil

September 20, 2009 10:23

Thanks Colin, it is the Quadrant building opposite the Esplanade train station, the trees are in bud so in another couple of days you wont be able to see the building from that angle.

avatar

Cop Colin

September 20, 2009 10:23

It was actually the starkness of the trees that caught my attention Phil, I don’t know about about the technicalities but I also liked the angle of the building juxtaposed against the trees, did I use that word correctly?

avatar

Phil

September 20, 2009 10:23

Sounds good to me :) Technicality wise I was using a wide angle lense which allowed me to get the whole building in the frame. F-stop = f/19, Exposure time = 1/250 sec, ISO speed = 800 and Focal length = 17mm

Hiya, I guess frozen chips could be classed as grungy. Was it good to finally get to practice. Remember when you would have had to spend all night in the darkroom to see what tou’d shot?

avatar

Phil

September 20, 2009 10:23

Yeah it was good to practice, I shot in whats called RAW mode where the light sensor (what used to be the film) collects all the available light so you can go back and virtually reshoot the image in the studio via Adobe Bridge software.

avatar

Phil

September 20, 2009 10:23

Frozen chips….I’m sensing an arty title :)

avatar

sally o

September 20, 2009 10:23

Is that blue one on the terrace it looks familiar? They all look great anyway. If you can do so much in the studio, it’d be hard to know when to stop wouldn’t it?

I’m reading about the beginnings of the women’s rights movement in the U.S. They gained support through their work with the abolitionist movements In mid 19th C. so they had men from the anti-slavery movement on their side. I’ve been reading some of the male supporters views. As they had more practice speaking out and obviously weren’t fighting for themselves , some of these writings are really powerful, heartfelt stuff. Inspiring.

avatar

sally o

September 20, 2009 10:23

Thanks Phil , I am feeling better than I did on Monday,.It is just the bloody flu but together with medication I am taking on Monday it made me feel a lot worse than I really was.., anyway we will survive , managed to make the tute on Tues for Re-inventing Aus. but Allan did not show , we had a chinese tutor and I had to give my bloody presentation which she wanted in a different format to what Allan had told us so I was not impressed. It will be interesting to see how she marks.. Thanks Kim for walking me to my car on Monday , I think I would have made it but it was reassuring to have someone there just in case I keeled over. I am now busy looking at my essay , I have no idea what I am going to write on but I better get started ,its due next week..Oh well have a good day everyone ,see you all in two weeks time.

Hi everyone, well I am pleased with myself. Have managed to finish my essay and have also completed one reading summary and one glossary- I am nearly up to date Hooray”’ Hope you are all in the same boat with your essays.. No Kim I don’t know what is happening with Allan , hopefully he will be there on Tuesday I don’t really fancy the chinese tutor,we can only wait and see. I have not even thought about voting Sally, I did not take too much notice of the e mails but if you reckon we need to vote against the libs -why not. There is not much activity on this blog Phil both you and Kim must be flat out with essays , as for Cassie she is definately being worked too hard. Never mind we are nearly half way thriough the 1st semester , it won’t be long before the holidays and we will all be sweating on exam results. Keep well , I will catch up with you all next Monday , I will however be at uni sometime on Friday to drop of my essay .if anyone is around ?

Hi Phil, I guess you’ve been busy with your paid work. Are you voting. Pretty scary if the libs get in so every vote counts for Active Left.I’m going in to get started on this P/F. Now I haven’t got an excusefor poor work, Maybe I should have just built up to the HD towards the end so I wouldn’t feel as though I have to try and live up to it

avatar

Phil

October 1, 2009 10:23

Ah yes the old HD trap for protectionists

avatar

Phil

October 1, 2009 10:23

Did I say protectionists?

Phil

October 1, 2009 10:23

I meant perfectionists! :)

Hi everyone, :) does anyone know whether or not we need to put a heading on our TLC 120 essay? I can’t find anything to say so, and there is a heading on the cover sheet so I’m confused?

Haven’t seen that clip for a long time phil. Yhose were the days. Hi Kim, Is this a better job so its worth the stress now? I hope you get maternity leave and lots of paid annual leave or is that all still under negotiation?

avatar

kim

October 2, 2009 10:23

Hi Sally. not a better job…just another job :) don’t need the stress but do need the $$$$! Not sure yet about annual leave, most prob casual so no leave and definitely no MATERNITY LEAVE!! Sally I would rather have 10 2000 word essays due 2morrow than need maternity leave!!! ;) Love the kids I’ve got but no more for me,haha

Today I need to clear my head and get on with assignments arghh… :(

avatar

Cop Colin

October 11, 2009 10:23

Obama, mmm, not sure about this one, I like him but what has he actually done to win the Nobel given that the nominations closed 12 days after he took office, can’t help being cynical but is this more tokenism to the US?

avatar

Phil

October 11, 2009 10:23

I think it is not only in recognition of what hes has done but also an encouragement for what can be done.

avatar

Phil

October 11, 2009 10:23

In the words of the head of the Nobel Peace Prize committee ‘we are capturing the spirit of the times, the needs of the era’.

avatar

sally o

October 11, 2009 10:23

YOU DID THE PICTURE! I knew it was special, but that takes it to a whole new level. Could you organize one for me to pin up? Please. :roll: I can’t do that cutesy batting eyelid thing myself, it goes against the grain

October 11, 2009 10:23

See, I can’t even do it with the smileys. :roll:

Oh Colin, where’s your faith in humanity. Don’t be so pedantic, Come along for the ride. :-)

Phil

October 11, 2009 10:23

Aw shucks :oops: (using oops for blush)

A quick easy way to get a pin up version of the image is to right click on it then select and click on print.

sally o

October 11, 2009 10:23

I’ve only got black and white, but I put it in a doc with you cited underneath and your description from your ‘comment’

Phil

October 11, 2009 10:23

I will print you one in colour and bring it tomorrow.

avatar

Cop Colin

October 11, 2009 10:23

Yep, Sally I’ve been called pedantic B4 but….Al Gore and now Obama, purely political decisions in my opinion, how can you be a peacemaker when your army is killing thousands of innocents?

avatar

sally o

October 11, 2009 10:23

Yes Colin, There is that minor detail of being at war in two countries, but, what can I say? His heart’s in the right place and he’s got the smarts to follow through.

avatar

sally o

October 11, 2009 10:23

That’d be great Phil. thank you. :roll: :roll:

Cop Colin

October 11, 2009 10:23

I agree his heart’s in the right place and he did, at least, give the prize money to charity :)

avatar

sally o

October 11, 2009 10:23

Oh good I’m pleased he did that, but of course he would. Just like Jose Ramos Horta. He even gave his medal away to the commander of the East Timorese resistance fighters.

avatar

Cop Colin

October 11, 2009 10:23

Now he was a deserved winner, definitely had his runs on the board including being exiled for his beliefs :)

October 14, 2009 10:23

Hi Colin, I handed my career essay in yesterday, only 1 day late, and am on my NTW. It feels really weird. I’m going to make a start on my next one but pressures off.

avatar

sally o

October 14, 2009 10:23

It was really interesting hearing about your life the other day. We don’t really know where people have come from until we ask, do we?

avatar

sally o

October 14, 2009 10:23

Hi again. Speaking of not really knowing people, I think I’ve just found my daughter who I adopted out before she was 2. Well, her sister anyway. I rang, but got a machine so I hung up.

avatar

Cop Colin

October 14, 2009 10:23

Well so much for good intentions, we just got visitors so my work went out the window, but I have had a nice feed of scones and coffee, back to work now, that’s interesting about your daughter Sally, are you excited?

avatar

sally o

October 14, 2009 10:23

mmm.. I could handle some scones and coffee. Are they a Fiona special? And yes, excited, but scared too. :-)

avatar

Cop Colin

October 14, 2009 10:23

Very understandable emotions Sally under the circumstances, sadly the scones are not a Fiona special, she needs a UBD to find her way around in the kitchen – that’s why I’m so skinny. :(

avatar

sally o

October 14, 2009 10:23

Are you in tomorrow Phil? I’ll be up for c+c . It’s my NTW but I’ll be in library from mid-a.m.and wom*ns meeting at 4.30. Are you or Kim in Colin?

avatar

Cop Colin

October 14, 2009 10:23

Sorry Sally I have the dentist at 9.00 then off to golf, If I get away from the dentist early enough I may call in at uni to pick up my essay but I’ll be straight in and out, have a nice day all :roll:

How’d you go with your essay Colin. Did you hear phil’s result. If you haven’t you’ll have to ask him. Not my place. :roll:

October 16, 2009 10:23

Morning all. And it’s another beautiful day in sunny Perth. Oh that’s right, got to make a start on my essay today.

avatar

Cop Colin

October 16, 2009 10:23

Hi Sally, yes a beautiful day, I’ve been sorting my pool out, just about ready for a swim now once the water gets warmer, I got an HD- for my essay, made some stupid mistakes with referencing which cost me, but you learn from those mistakes so I’m not unhappy, enjoy the sunshine :)

avatar

sally o

October 16, 2009 10:23

HD-, Thats brilliant Colin. I like the sound of your place more + more- scones, coffee, AND a pool as well!

avatar

Cop Colin

October 17, 2009 10:23

Morning all, another gorgeous one to, I’m not playing golf today, need to get some readings done, does anyone struggle with paraphrasing as much as I do, I can’t seem to ‘get it’ any tips? :roll:

avatar

Cop Colin

October 17, 2009 10:23

What I meant was I get what paraphrasing is, I just don’t seem to be able to do it properly, see I struggle to explain myself sometimes, most times?

avatar

sally o

October 17, 2009 10:23

I try and pick out the key words and main point/s and then not look at the original while I write it. I struggle with it too. But remember I’m still in Kindy so be careful of any advice I give out.

avatar

sally o

October 17, 2009 10:23

Has anyone heard from Cassie? I think she’s having a hard time. She needs to catch up with the rest of us more often. You guys are such an important part of my uni life and you have interconnected studies. I think Cassie’s a bit on her own out there.

Sadly Sally I didn’t get into the pool, not quite warm enough for me yet, I was doing some readings, then got visitors again!!! so work went out the window, no scones this time but white Tim Tams, they are just the best biscuits :)

Hiya, I’ve got to do some reading today. Try and start on my final essay. I haven’t done anything yet, but I go to bed and almost an entire essay goes through my head. The next day I don’t know where to start again.

I’ve been totally procrastinating. Had a lovely day at home though. Listening to music, dancing round the house, long walk, bit of reading-non essay related of course. It took me till 5.00 to get my washing on the line. Might have to go 1/2 clothed tomorrow.

avatar

Cop Colin

October 28, 2009 10:23

Oh, I’m inspired (I think) Fiona just reminded me that we are not judged by the number of times we fail but by the number of times we succeed, which is in direct proportion to the number of times we can fail and KEEP ON TRYING…

Hi Kim, well done on finishing, this second TLC essay is really hard, I think so anyway. I’ve written my introductory para. but not sure if I’m on the right track :???:

avatar

kim

October 28, 2009 10:23

colin, I’m sticking to a tried and true method: ‘if u can’t dazzle them with science, baffle them with bulls##t’!! :)

avatar

Phil

October 28, 2009 10:23

Ah yes, when all else fails bullsh is certainly the way to go…

avatar

Phil

October 28, 2009 10:23

i am very close now with fdn essay and am currently allowing my subconcious mind to work away on the tlc essay as I get on with other stuff…

avatar

Phil

October 28, 2009 10:23

I am hoping my subconcious has its act together :)

avatar

Cop Colin

October 28, 2009 10:23

Bulls…t eh? what is that exactly :wink:

avatar

kim

October 28, 2009 10:23

That is when u take your tutor on a journey that is so twisted and convuluted that by the time they get to the end they forget where they came from!!! haha :)

avatar

kim

October 28, 2009 10:23

well that’s the plan anyway :)

avatar

Cop Colin

October 28, 2009 10:23

Phil

October 29, 2009 10:23

Phil

avatar

Phil

October 29, 2009 10:23

Then in left hand pane scroll down

avatar

Phil

October 29, 2009 10:23

Recycle bin should be near the bottom

avatar

kim

October 29, 2009 10:23

hey Phil, my fdn essay is 1169 words long do you think it matters?

avatar

Phil

October 29, 2009 10:23

No I reckon that will be ok. Paul :oops: told us as long as its a good story he doesn’t mind if it goes over.

avatar

Phil

October 29, 2009 10:23

Did you find your bin?

avatar

kim

October 29, 2009 10:23

avatar

sally o

October 29, 2009 10:23

Hi everyone. HAPPY B”DAY CASSIE< wherever you are. :-) Have you got another essay done and dusted Kim. I’ve just handed in the WORST essay plan I’ve ever seen. Kicking myself.

avatar

sally o

October 29, 2009 10:23

Me too. Hope your visit goes well tomoro. Have you started putting Marking Time together yet?

avatar

Phil

October 29, 2009 10:23

I’ll be making a start on Marking Time tomorrow. i am quite excited about it!

avatar

Phil

October 29, 2009 10:23

Scary though, a little different from essays etc as it feels to me as a real baring of the soul…

avatar

Phil

October 29, 2009 10:23

i am very needy :) i want people to like and be affected by my work

avatar

sally o

October 29, 2009 10:23

Need a bit more affirmation Phil? I do Know what you mean though. Doing it’s one thing, but having it affect others gives it another dimension altogether

avatar

kim

October 30, 2009 10:23

morning guys! hi sally :) yeah one essay down but still 2 to go…are you in today?

avatar

kim

October 30, 2009 10:23

I keep waking up sooo early, annoying. Think my brain is overactive!

avatar

sally o

October 30, 2009 10:23

I’m only going in to meet up with fellow travellers to Reclaim the Night March. Thinking of moving to Bhutan where I can feed myself for $5 a week.

avatar

sally o

October 30, 2009 10:23

Perhaps I haven’t thought that one quite through yet. :roll:

avatar

Cop Colin

October 30, 2009 10:23

Morning everyone, another nice day but…I’m gonna try and get the second TLC essay started, I’ve sort of written an introductory para. but not sure if it’s right, I think I’ll see if I can get some one on one time with the tutor on Monday , not sure if its really hard or I’m really thick??

avatar

Cop Colin

October 30, 2009 10:23

Where is Bhutan?

avatar

Phil

October 30, 2009 10:23

Bhutan is somewhere in the Himalayas.

avatar

Phil

October 30, 2009 10:23

It is the place where government decisions are based on the GDHI (gross domestic happiness index) rather than on economic factors like our GDP.

avatar

Phil

October 30, 2009 10:23

Sally, visit went well, I am very proud of my boy.

avatar

Cop Colin

October 30, 2009 10:23

I just googled it, interesting looking place but looks like it could get quite cold, glad your visit went well Phil.

avatar

sally o

October 30, 2009 10:23

That’s great to hear Phil. The major problems still there of course, but that must be a small weight off your mind.

avatar

sally o

October 30, 2009 10:23

GDHI sounds great. I could be a real hi-flier over there I think. Just have to get this depression,anxiety , panic. confusion under control and I’ll be right. The cold though……..Naaah

avatar

Cop Colin

October 30, 2009 10:23

Yeah, GDHI did sound ok, Fiona just taught me a little chant which apparently is the formula for reality and helps you to see things in perspective, are you ready – palms together – repeat nam myoho renge kyo, it’s not working for me yet!!

avatar

Phil

October 31, 2009 10:23

Thanks Colin.

avatar

Phil

October 31, 2009 10:23

avatar

Cop Colin

avatar

Cop Colin

November 1, 2009 10:23

Now, how does the reality chant go again – nam myoho renge kyo, nam myoho renge kyo….

avatar

kim

November 1, 2009 10:23

avatar

sally o

November 1, 2009 10:23

I did go to Reclaim the Night. Really empowering. Wonderful women all around. Pretty special.Melissa gave a speech, amongst many others. Marching and shouting is so enervating. Brings back memories of the old days

avatar

avatar

Cop Colin

November 3, 2009 10:23

Thanks Sally I’m pretty pleased, not only with the mark but some really positive comments as well, you don’t need my DNA, you just need to make yourself do it – try the chant :)

Well Phil, you won Fiona’s heart with that post, I had to show it to her to get my points back for telling her I wanted esky – she learned that chant (and many others) when she was becoming a Reiki Master so it was quite special :)

avatar

Phil

November 8, 2009 10:23

Just between you and me I am hoping I will get the same result with Kim and Sally :)

avatar

Phil

November 8, 2009 10:23

I am not exactly sure what Reiki is, hopefully Fiona can fill me in at the barbie.

November 8, 2009 10:23

Well Phil, looks like you won a few hearts, Reiki is a technique of healing that taps into the life force energy that apparently flows through all living things, can you tell I’m a bit of a sceptic :? )

avatar

Phil

November 8, 2009 10:23

Somehow I’m not surprised

Phil

November 8, 2009 10:23

Kim did you mean Ommmm

yeah I think this essay will take a couple of days…thanks Phil. I know kinda what I want to say but…

avatar

Phil

November 10, 2009 10:23

I knew what I wanted to say when i started but it was something completely different when I finished :)

avatar

Phil

November 10, 2009 10:23

They were right again ala Priest – a bit of a learning journey

avatar

kim

November 10, 2009 10:23

hmmmm…that final full-stop in an essay is soooooo great it almost makes you forget the pain of getting there :)

avatar

kim

November 10, 2009 10:23

but…I fear there are no full-stops in view for me today

avatar

Phil

November 10, 2009 10:23

Hang in there…i am wading through some photography books…I have absolutely no idea what they are talking about :(

avatar

Phil

November 10, 2009 10:23

Have you seen the postmodernism essay generator…it might help :)

avatar

kim

November 10, 2009 10:23

hahahaha :) :) just reading your comment re: wading through photography books made me feel better! my house looks like a herd of wild animals stampeded through it, I have no time for anything other than procrastinating, stressing and the odd bit of research!!! + wishing I was http://www.elsewhere... at the moment

avatar

Phil

November 10, 2009 10:23

same…it is amazing how much time procrastinating takes up

avatar

kim

November 10, 2009 10:23

OMG!!! Just went elsewhere… is it safe??? :)

avatar

kim

November 10, 2009 10:23

hahahaha

avatar

kim

November 10, 2009 10:23

I know it’s a bit early but…this bottle of wine has helped in taking me elsewhere? :)

avatar

Phil

November 10, 2009 10:23

oh oh :)

avatar

kim

November 10, 2009 10:23

you can say that again… :)

avatar

kim

November 10, 2009 10:23

but …you know I am feeling particularly drained atm, and maybe I just need to kick back for a day?

avatar

Phil

November 10, 2009 10:23

I really do think that kicking back can help.

avatar

Phil

November 10, 2009 10:23

Don’t forget that you have virtually just gone through the TEE yourself!

avatar

Phil

November 10, 2009 10:23

If that makes sense?

avatar

kim

November 10, 2009 10:23

yes thanks Phil :) sometimes you’ve just got to STOP and hope there’ll be more clarity tomorrow…

avatar

Phil

November 10, 2009 10:23

do it! :)

avatar

kim

November 10, 2009 10:23

anyway, feel like I’ve been a ‘procrastinateur’ (i.e. one who enables procrastinating) for long enough 2day ;)

avatar

Phil

November 10, 2009 10:23

oh you procrastinateur you!…enjoy your time off…have one for me :)

avatar

sally o

November 11, 2009 10:23

Nothing to be sorry about Phil. It was absolutely great that you came. :-) I didn’t realise that Pat came especially 4 me, I thought she was just part of the On Track family, but Jim told me after that it was to see me .

avatar

sally o

November 11, 2009 10:23

Thank you Kim. It was so great today. It was all about ME, ME, ME!!! :roll: And I’m lapping it up.

Phil

November 12, 2009 10:23

Such images use photography’s overt veracity against the viewer, exploiting that initial assumption of credibility by evoking it for events and relationships generated by the photographers deliberate structuring of what takes place in front of the lens as well as of the resulting image

avatar

Phil

November 12, 2009 10:23

sheesh!!!

kim

November 12, 2009 10:23

OH THE PAIN

avatar

Phil

November 12, 2009 10:23

very much so…but will soldier on…

avatar

sally o

November 12, 2009 10:23

Can’t you just adjust that initial assumption of credibility with the light meter? :-(

avatar

sally o

November 12, 2009 10:23

I meant :-?

kim

November 12, 2009 10:23

How’s it going now Phil?

November 12, 2009 10:23

Hi everyone, I had a day off today went and played gold – very badly – so should have stayed home and done some revision, got an e-mail fm Colin Beasley saying he’s not accepting any more late work, glad mine is all in, he said that the exam is on Tuesday, I thought it was Monday but have checked the timetable and it is 9.30am. Tues 17/11 EH 3.001, Sally are you lapping up the rays :)

avatar

Cop Colin

November 12, 2009 10:23

Of course I didn’t play gold, I meant golf, funny how bad golf makes you more tired than good golf :roll:

avatar

kim

November 12, 2009 10:23

hey colin…did colin beasley give extensions or just leave it open-ended? Because I imagine if someone had applied for an extension he couldn’t just say he wasn’t accepting any ‘late work’?

avatar

Cop Colin

November 12, 2009 10:23

Not sure Kim, he was talking specifically about learning logs, his exact words were “but I will now not accept any further late log
entries” but I guess if someone had been granted an extension that would be OK – did you know the exam was on Tuesday or did you think it was Monday?

avatar

Hiya, I’ve actually been on the computer and phone yesterday and today trying to get photos off facebook ,joined ROAR feminist collective group, went to a p.m. Tai Chi class last night…. Trying to organize my life a bit.

I’m actually going to the op shop now to see if I can find a different singlet to wear. I HATE shopping. Then I’ out walking in the rays

November 13, 2009 10:23

That would have been traumatic turning up for very 1st exam on the wrong day :-?

avatar

Cop Colin

November 13, 2009 10:23

You’re not wrong, I guess it would have been worse if the exam had been on Monday and I’d turned up Tuesday, at least this way I have an extra day for revision, which is not happening :mrgreen:

avatar

kim

November 13, 2009 10:23

‘jack n jill’ are in de house ;) Sally I HATE shopping too!!! I thought I was just weird?! hahaha

avatar

Cop Colin

November 13, 2009 10:23

Why couldn’t I have married a woman who hated shopping – at least she only haunts the op shops, so it could be worse :-?

Hi Colin…oh well you can’t have it all!! :)

Hi guys, I’m practising for the exam, how do you think I’m going ?
Q. Name the four seasons
A.. Salt, pepper, mustard and vinegar
Q. Explain one of the processes by which water can be made safe to drink
A. Flirtation makes water safe to drink because it removes large pollutants like grit, sand, dead sheep and canoeists

I would have gone for salt pepper chilli aniseed but hey in the postmodern world we are both right

avatar

Phil

November 13, 2009 10:23

and you would have to speak to kim or sally about flirtation even in a postmodern world

avatar

kim

November 13, 2009 10:23

LOLOLOL!!! So sweet, so funny…. :) but it’s only Jack’s side of the story… and I’m on Team Jill… :)

Q. How can you delay milk turning sour

November 13, 2009 10:23

Someone sent me an e-mail with a whole list of them, apparently they are genuine answers given by kids in UK sitting their GCE, I guess if all else fails Kim and we use them as answers we can hope the markers have a sense of humour :)

avatar

Phil

November 13, 2009 10:23

well in a postmodern sense we could see the sour milk as yoghurt and therefore would not want stop it going sour. In feminist marxist theory however we could see that forcing the cow to store the milk in HER udder is disempowering.

avatar

Phil

November 13, 2009 10:23

Thanks for that picture Phil, Fiona has downloaded it into her picture file and saved the chant to her phone, she tells me that it means ‘the all is a precious jewel in the lotus flower which blossoms in my heart’ I’m a bit of sceptic like you spiritually wise but Fiona is a great believer, you’ll understand just how much when you see my house :roll:

avatar

Cop Colin

November 15, 2009 10:23

Apparently the file is too big for her phone so she’s saved it to her hard drive or something, she’s happy anyway :) :)

avatar

kim

November 16, 2009 10:23

It wasn’t all grey. Where’s my memory? There was a blank white box with a red x that I tried to click on.

avatar

Phil

November 18, 2009 10:23

mmm…it should be a grey screen with a box containing the rainbow. it is a java rainbow…

Hey Phil, tai chi is doing a beginners course especially for students so that you can learn the entire set over 3 days in Jan. That means that you can then pick and choose continuing classes whenever it suits you instead of going to the same beginners class for 3 months. Interested?

November 18, 2009 10:23

Where’s your p/folio

Phil

November 18, 2009 10:23

That’s beautiful Phil. How’s the eyelashes on Bravado. Isn’t Danny photogenic? I always look gross in photos. It’s not good for the self confidence cos afterwards I keep thinking ” god I”ve been kidding myself I wasn’t looking too bad for my age”.

November 18, 2009 10:23

What have you done to the chat box Phil?

avatar

sally o

November 18, 2009 10:23

It keeps going back to the previous chat and not showing latest.

avatar

Phil

November 18, 2009 10:23

Its ok now…when I tried to put in the long link it breaks it and pushes the bow to the bottom of the page.

avatar

Phil

November 18, 2009 10:23

November 18, 2009 10:23

“Alone” is quite striking. all that space filled with all that stuff and the guy just sitting there. His body language and face tell your story too. What a dag in ” Exultant”

sally o

November 18, 2009 10:23

I’ve got better bin neighbours than you Phil. They needed extra bin room so used mine and when I went to bring them in just then the recycle bin wasn’t there. They’d already brough it in for me

You’ll have to form a RELATIONSHIP with your neighbours

Yea I feel I have to after Tuesday’s debacle

avatar

Cop Colin

November 20, 2009 10:23

Yeah not sure if I’ve got over that yet :(

avatar

Phil

November 20, 2009 10:23

It leaves me worried about the FDN exam…I really felt for Kim yesterday

avatar

Cop Colin

November 20, 2009 10:23

Yeah, I spoke to her last night and she was “drowning her sorrows” – at the end of the day we can only do our best, the worst part of that exam for me was the pressure of getting it done in time – is that how they make you or break you ?

avatar

Phil

November 20, 2009 10:23

Time was the big thing for me as well…I always take a long time to nut things out…D tells me they take this into account when marking and that they are just trying to find out if you understand the concepts…

avatar

Cop Colin

November 20, 2009 10:23

That’s good to know, I feel a bit better :)

avatar

Phil

November 20, 2009 10:23

We shall see… :) I’m not sure what I managed to convey, if anything.

avatar

kim

November 20, 2009 10:23

hi guys…I don’t think I can make it to Pam’s, I’d like to but I’ve got work.

Hi Kim

Hi everyone. Sorry to hear about your exam woes Kim. You’ve all been doing so well with your grades throughout, it must be like Danny says, they take the time factor into account.

Hi Sally

avatar

sally o

November 20, 2009 10:23

Hiya. I’ve just been talking to Cassie. She’s in anxious mode too. I told her she should be on line with us cos it’s peer support and she’s felt quite alone this sem. I’m having dinner with her tonite in Freo so we can catch up properly.

avatar

Cop Colin

November 20, 2009 10:23

Yaay Sally, Fi managed to source some vegie sausages so that’s a goer :) :)

avatar

kim

November 21, 2009 10:23

It said discuss strengths and weaknesses re: theories…I forgot all about it!!!

Phil

November 21, 2009 10:23

November 24, 2009 10:23

I know . They’re doing logs and revision for exams. Sorry for my little gloating fit. I am thinking of you all. Cassie’s got her exam today,I sent her a good luck text. She’s had a hell of a year. Just like we all have I guess

November 24, 2009 10:23

I watched Samson and Delilah Sun. nite. Excruciating watching. Such barren and bereft of anything lives. My friend Pamela worked in a community in central Australia and it was near Utopia. You’d think with a name like that the place would have something going for it but she said it was just the same as the film

avatar

Hi all. Is anyone interested in a lecture at UWA on Wed. 5.00 on Energy, Climate and People. It sounds interesting to me but I can’t find anyone to go with at that time.

Cop Colin

November 30, 2009 10:23

Morning all :) sorry Sally, got something on (not golf) !! Have a great day everyone, I still feel a bit strange not going to uni or studying, kind of lost ??

Cop Colin

November 30, 2009 10:23

Thanks Phil, good explanation but no one (Government or otherwise) has come up with a solution to stop the polluters going offshore, basically polluting where they are no being monitored? :(

avatar

sally o

November 30, 2009 10:23

Exactly Colin. Where the poor people are cos they can’t say no to the money and jobs’ but it is short-term benefits and they destroy their environment and poison themselves and ultimately end up worse off except for the few bigwigs who pocket the big $. It’s a pretty mucked up world we live in where so many people are waving bibles or other religious texts around and then not caring about the misery our capitalist society encourages.

avatar

sally o

November 30, 2009 10:23

Gawd, that was a bit long. :-? Yes Phil, I’m definitely going. So pleased your coming. I’ll give you a call. Have you checked the writeup on the UWA website?

avatar

Phil

December 9, 2009 10:23

Thats good news Colin :) . I really cut through keyboards so have lashed out and bought this top of the range one in the hope it will last longer…there is a real difference to the ways it ‘feels’.

How do you find these songs Phil? You facetious thing you. I went to the Freo philosophy cafe last nite after my womens meeting. Interesting mix of things to put into my head. The philos. cafe was intriguing. The next one’s not till Feb. unfortunately but I’ll be there.

Well done Sally, way to go :)

December 9, 2009 10:23

woo hoo Sally. What happens at a philosophy cafe…is like a beatnik sort of a thing?

avatar

sally o

December 10, 2009 10:23

Morning all. Sort of but there were a few what I think are retired academics who were pretty vociferous. The facilitator was the one who got my attention. He was really engaging and could shut down the guys who got boarish on the god thing and bring the discussion back to topic.He filled in the gaps and then invited people for their opinions. Kind of cross between tut + lecture.

Wonderful lecture at UWA. I caught the bus and a guy got on asking for a ticket to UWA so I asked if he was going to the lecture too and we went together. You know me, I’m not shy about approaching people to talk to.

I’ve enrolled in Cons. + Wildlife Biol. but do I have to enrol in individual units now or are they done as ‘activities’?

avatar

December 16, 2009 10:23

Thankyou D :-) . Aaaargh!! Had to change my password when I accepted my offer which was annoying but even more so when it wouldn’t work today. So got a 3rd one for the week and will have to go on campus and change it back to the 1 I can remember.

Morning all, some interesting images there Phil, but I can’t see me behind the lens of a camera – done enough surveillance as a copper to last me a lifetime :)

avatar

Cop Colin

December 21, 2009 10:23

Poor old Tiger Woods, there is certainly plenty of jokes doing the rounds, someone send me (via e-mail) a game where is wife is chasing him with a gld club, who thinks these things up?

avatar

Cop Colin

December 21, 2009 10:23

Sorry – typo :( meant golf club obviously…

avatar

Phil

December 21, 2009 10:23

yea I agree, he’s certainly in the public spotlight…I generally think each to his or her own but couldn’t resist this joke because of its xmas connotation.

avatar

sally o

December 21, 2009 10:23

How the high + mighty can fall! I think it exacerbates the worst of human nature to revel in exposing someone’s failings. Tiger is still the exact same person everybody couldn’t praise enough a couple of months ago.

avatar

sally o

December 21, 2009 10:23

Phil, you seem to be making time to get into xmas spirit despite your workload. Where did all this work pressure spring from? Is it new jobs or ongoing?

avatar

Phil

December 21, 2009 10:23

Hi Sally, workwise a mix of both…did such a good job they immediately wanted more :)

Hi all, I,m just taking some food and meeting some friends (new ones) at sth beach. It’s a blue moon and the drumming group should be down there as well. Seem to be having to force myself to talk to people at the moment. Had a really bad day with Melissa a week and a 1/2 ago and maybe I was already on the way to feeling like this or it may have instigated it, I don’t know, but not myself right now

avatar

sally o

December 30, 2009 10:23

It’s great having the news right there Phil. We have a choice to look or not. Somedays I want to know everything, good and bad. Other times not. Glad it’s there for when I do. Lavinia is coming in a minute to shave my head and then tai chi so I’ll catch up tomorrow.
