Happy Park(ing) Day

I don’t know if this will work. I’m not the most technology literate person, this is where blogger Luke should step in and help me out!! So I am writing this  blog on the premise the there is a link below that works.

Today is Park(ing) Day! Happy Park(ing) Day y’all!! No it doesn’t mean you get a nice wrapped present. It means, we as people can provide a gift to society. The gift of green, publically accessible green space. This is such a great cause, and a brilliant, innovative way of getting more and more people outdoors, away from the iHome, and iWork that we have become our systematic lives. QUEUE VIDEO.

A day as Sam

A lot has been going on lately. It’s the busiest time of semester and things aren’t slowing down any time soon.

The Abstract Feeling of Being Lost

When you catch public transport as much as I do, particularly to the south side of Brisbane, there is one thing you learn very quickly.  This is that the 140 bus route does not stop at Garden City!  Seeing people suddenly freak out when they see the bus turning left onto Mains Road after the Griffith University Busway Station, is something I find extremely amusing.  You can see them yelling at themselves thinking, ‘where on earth is this bus taking me?’  I know this is a little mean, but mostly I am just relieved that for once, the person on the wrong bus isn’t me
