Editing Day Two

I managed a bit over two hours today. I worked on editing from 9am - 10am took a half hour break then went from 10:30 to about 12:00. I stopped then as I was starving. So I washed up from last night (I was lazy!) and cooked up some spicy sausage for lunch.

The afternoon was spent reading some more of one of the five books I have to read for one of my classes this semester. Along with spending $162.90 on text books for another class! All my wealth is in books!

SPEAKING of Books!

I'm trying to sell some of the ones that I got for Uni last semester. They are novels. Combination of fiction and non fiction. If you're interested in them (I'll sell them at half price + postage which is $5.00) let me know in your comments and I'll get in touch with you with a list + price. All prices are negotiable! I'd like to make 'some' money back to help pay for this years books.

When I first started Uni I worked part time. However as I got further into study, I let my part time job go a) Because is wasn't what I wanted to do (I was a cabinet maker) and b) it took a fair bit of my time away from being able to do assignments. (read when I wasn't physically at the Uni Campus I was at work!) My marks improved when you compare 1st year to 2nd year. However not working means I can't claim my books etc back on tax :( Which sucks. As I did have a great accountant who got me anything and everything I was allowed too. But now I don't work - thus not paying taxes. I can't claim anything. Would I go out and get a part time job to rectify this? Simply NO I get buy on the super tight budget I made, admittedly after rent I have fuck all left! But it does me.

In other news.... It's hot, like HOT and I'm off to laze in air-conditioned comfort and watch TV as my life goes into decline quicker as according to the news today those who watch a lot of TV die sooner! All I can say is Meh - at least I died happy!

That's all I've got.

You're doing well on the editing front. It's all about momentum, once the wheels are in motion it's easy, right?

We'll discuss the books you have on Twitter. I'm sure you know my taste, we'll discuss anything you think I'll like.

Out of curiousity, what kinds of books...titles etc..

As long as you don't want an arm and a leg, and you have any I'm interested, I might have to buy one or two! :).
