What is on the podcast today? Who cares: it is a beautiful day, and I am skipping along (in the rain)!
Life is wonderful. God is good. Rain is delicious. Oh, and I went to a wedding this morning also.

It's the final countdown.... dah-dah, dah dah. I am being a little premature here, but I feel like my time in Indonesia is almost up. :-( Aw, sadseez.
Is it totally evil of me to deliberately wait to collect my final scholarship money; just to make sure that my University does not pocket it?
Yeah, it's not much cash - but it's the principle!

Pinch and a Punch for the First of the Month! Today is 1 March 2011.
Walk with me as I go to buy some 'pulsa' for my Mobile phone. Enjoy the dulcit tones of the mosque too!
As I wonder the streets I realise that I really need some food - which is tricky to find in the back blocks.
House & flatmates update too. Find out all the latest craziness and stress from Brisbane regarding my tenants.

Am I prepared for another semester of teaching? It really is a TON of work! Hats off to all teachers out there.
Indonesian Uni students are SO sweet, friendly and innocent. That sure makes work a lot easier than rat-bag Westerners would be.
I try to rev-up the girls to ignore [Muslim] cutlure, and to speak up. Everyone in MY class is equal. Girls are not second-class citizens, nor are they to remain silent.

Semester 2 starts tomorrow (cause Indonesia is on the crazy Northern-hemisphere timetable), so I am off to Coffee Time to prepare for English Seaking 2 classes. blah
It really is off-putting to have the REAL year disected by a fake academic year, like in USA & EU. Semester 2 is starting, at the start of a new year. :-(
Should I buy new iPad, or new MacBook Pro?!
2 voicemails today :-) yippee! thank you, boys.
You can listen to the MP3 file here too

I spend the first half of the podcast with some scary observations on Uni students and the education (school) system here.
In fantastic news, I have now changed rooms in my Kos (boarding house)!
Oh yeah, and have picked up a new BOYFRIEND too!!! :-)

Well, whilst my laptop is now restored to it's original (2009) glory - with tiny 160GB HDD - the internet has decided to pack it in now.
To use my iPhone4 I need to have the newest version of iTunes. After 3 hours, and a crash (meaning I had to start again), it is back to saying "5 hours" to download. I hate to think how long this 2mb file will take to upload.
You can click here to listen online, but iTunes is easier
