Wow, i just went back and read my intire history of posts.
It was depressing in a way, I luaghed allot. Depressing because I used to be a much more interesting and fun loving person. And you can tell by the posts toward the end that I was slipping away. I really regret allot of choices I made Directly after I stopped making posts. I made allot of mistakes I ought to have learnt from.

On a better note, Im moving to Australia in a few weeks. I think it will be a great new begining for me. And Im really looking foward to being able to relax and become a whole new person that people feel they can depend on and trust with kindness.

This a sword I made in the workshop yesterday. The blade is made of high tensile steel. I found a huge piece in the scrap. It was a used loader bucket wear plate that had been worn to a point were the edge of the blade is. The steel is extreamly strong and hard. and once sharpened can be hardened with heat and then quenched. This can only be done were the carbon content is higher than.03
Although completely unpractical, it is more ornamental than anything.

Ive been getting more into my my music of late to, new favourites are Tool, electric six, pluto, everclear, hot hot heat, and ofcoarse much much more. A new bar is opening soon REVOLVER wich i have taken part in creating and there having some really freakin tweakin local bands turning up such as, 48 may, elmenop, and steriogram. I cant wait, also dimmer and a few of my other faves at a later date. Cant wait.

I also won the compitition I was speaking about last time and now ile be heading to the nationals as the otago and southland champion. I also won $500.00 In vouchers and shit. If I win the nationals I get to go to Japan and copete in the worlds. They somtimes have upto $100,000 in prize money woop woop! I was also in the paper for my achievment.
I have met a new group of friends in invercargil and havin great fun mucking around over there.
This weekend I will be going on a roadtrip with leo and melissa. We will be pretty much travelling over the whole country.
Yay for easter, Oooh yeah I also got a payrise from my boss. Im now on $17.50 and will be getting another in about a week upto 18.50 then once im fully qualified I will be getting about 25 an hour woop woop.

Its been a long time since I last updated, mostly because of my breakup with caroline. But also because I have been going thru some thick shit. I Recently went to the mental health clinic and they have started medicating me. At first I was worse off as they seemed to want to pry into my childhood allot. But now things are better. I have to thank caroline for that, She was the one who advised me to go in the first place even after all the shit I put her through. Caroline is a genuine good person.
I havent done anymore art in a long time, but I have writen allot of poetry. I will post some soon as the launderette I use has the internet.
This weekend I am competing in a welding compitition and hope to win. I came 2nd the year before last and I have a real shot at getting to the nationals.
I am also in the prosses of finishing my degree in engineering which I am looking foward to.
My best friends sister is coming down to live and it will be cramped in our tiny flat/cabin.
So yeah . Cant say I was suprised no one commented during my absence. But hopefully with the medication I will be a more likable person.
Has been a hard couple of months, but things are starting to turn around. No more reoccuring nightmares or delusions recently so thats a plus+

Would really like some feedback?

Life is hollow and without meaning, But those polyester smiles you seem to keep them gleaming.
Searching for the front desk looking in the back. Just to give this life a boost I am seriously considering crack.
Aimlessly lurching down the corridoor of life banging into my metophoric walls. To tired to care and to lonley to stop, Ile keep on staggering or at least until I drop.
Is there anything behind these doors, Are there any lives behind these walls? I want to be closer but this invisable depression keeps me at bay. I know its not me thats keeping them away.

Dont know how to explain the way I feel right now. Like I cant get close enough to people to satisfy somthing inside me that is burning with lonelyness, no matter how close we get.

Woah, Im so sore and tired. Ive been up the mountain for about a week and a half. Good fun tho. We have only done about 300-400 metres. And that was the easy stuff. We will probably have to do some blasting. So that should be fun. Its crazy up there, The other day I found some money on the ground and then some more and more and more. Aparently you can find all sorts of crazy stuff up there left from the skier and snowboarders. Hotel keys, oakleys, cell phones, wallets, money, car keys, all sorts.
The kea's (alpine parrot) have been hangin around. Hopefully they dont come over because they will rip anything shiney appart.
I just hope we dont get stuck up there in the winter, its cold enough now.
Havent been able to do a hell of allot on the computer as it shat itself and it has just been reformatted and its stuck on big screen, grrrrraaaaarrrr.
Well thats all for today, will see you later.

I like it how this is sort of cartoonized, cartoonized, cartoonized, I like that, I might use it again.
O.k because I love you im going to improv a poem.

Like a single leaf dances in the wind, I will find my settling place alone.
The wind turns me in cirles back onto myself, to find a lonely throne.
The summer breaze wispers me my tune, and I follow my feet like a million men before.

O.k bye now. Everyone loves somone for somthing.
