Back to school




This is the reaction I immediately think of when I think of back to school.

And here's a little something some of my friends did on their myspace.
You were supposed to tag yourself but someone beat me to it x.x



I bought a mac earlier this year and dropped it over a month ago.
It was the shortest drop I have ever known to dent a computer screen too, I'm not that high from the ground.
I won't go into more detail about the height specifications but I will rave on the frikkin $1,300 bill I would receive upon fixing the damn thing.

I bought a Sony Vaio to replace it.
It's on the large size for school but I loved the texture.
My mum kind of pushed me into buying a laptop that day and I felt bad enough for dropping my baby phase macbook so I got one of the cheaper ones, hence the large size.
She wanted me to get the Vaio pocket, which was a ridiculous $2k for a (almost) pda-sized laptop.
I think she forgets I actually study a multimedia course.
She doesn't really know what I've chosen to do at school actually.



Since I've gotten my laptop, I've been desperately looking for a gorgeous case.
I found a leather one from Mimco but am not sure if its worth it.
I am trying to be more money conscience >_<

I really wish I had listened to Larissa when she told me it doesn't matter what the case looked like, but she never showed me the site to back up her argument so I had no proof as to why I should chose a normal lidded one.
By the site, I mean Gela skins.
It has some amazing artwork for all sorts of platforms and devices but quite the overpriced with our crappy Aussie exchange rate.
Some artwork by one of my favourites is Audrey Kawasaki.
New favourites now include Jeremiah Ketner, Camilla d'Errico and KuKula.














And last but not least, a hot outfit to go with the gadgets.

Hey there,
I've just started following your blog, I was somewhat aware of it a while ago, but it faded into obscurity in my mind.
I find it amazing that someone from the Gold Coast could make such a sartorially relevant blog. I wish we went to the same school, because you seem like a friendly gal :P (I'm not hitting on you, I'm gay :P Oh the stereotype!)
Whenever some ass feels like insulting you, just remember that there's a whole legion of people that adore you and your blog.
