I know. I meant it is in memory of all his work on newgrounds, like this club, the relationship crew and so on, so forth.

he could have died from multiple heart attacks if he had a pre-existing condition, but this doesnt add up, he looks to be in great shape in the pic on his blog, he was like you said only 20

weird, if true

right, and he is also an active football player. Once again, maybe he has studies to tend to or he just needed a break from newgrounds. Either way, I would say he'll be back within the month if all goes well.

weird, if true

I will be shocked and have a guilt trip if it does turn out to be true.

I totally would.

I'm serious. I'll probably post on general what my last words should be before telling whoever to post on my account.

But if I was hit by a car or something then yeah that might be difficult.

Seems to be the case the more you look at it. 20 year old who was on a semi pro football team, who kept himself in good shape dying of heart attacks? And then in his last words he tells someone to let people know on a website that he's dead? It doesn't make total sense. I won't believe he's dead until I see the obituary.

In more related news, I had my first interview yesterday and the results were inconclusive. They said that they want me to apply on the companies website and then in a few weeks they will let me know if they want me back for another interview. I'm not sure how it went because I did give a weak answer on one of the questions. Other than that, I thought I did a decent job of answering the questions. I have another interview next Tuesday so hopefully I'll have a stronger showing with that.

Good luck with that, I'm sure you'll do just fine.

I always think I did worse in interviews than I actually did, so you never know.

I'd like to think the same thing. It wasn't a horrible interview either. The person who did it was very nice and helped me relax when I was answering the questions save the one. I just wish they could tell me what they were going to do sooner than a few weeks. The anxiety of finding a job after school is getting worse every day especially with the economy the way it is.

You did fine from the sound of it. Along as they are still interested in you, that's all that matters.

The anxiety of finding a job after school is getting worse every day especially with the economy the way it is.

Tell me about it. I'm been out of school for a while and I'm still trying to find a permanent job. If you don't have any relevant work experience then they don't want you at all.

I still can't get over the fact that you guys get to choose your lectures timetables........... I mean, how many people are on your courses? And how many people in each lecture?

Not that we really get to choose, its more like "heres the times/days that this lecture/tutorial is on, pick one of em quick before it fills up."

Its a matter of first in, first served, so you pick the times most suited to your schedule, and hope for the best that the way you sorted it out is how its going to stay.

As for how many in each lecture, it depends on what you're doing. And even then im not entirley sure how many, but for each of the lectures for my units (being compulsory you don't need to register), the number of places left are around the 100's. So im assuming that the numbers are high enough so that everybody who chose to do this key program is basically guaranteed to get a spot.

Although im 100% sure theres no way that there is 100 people doing Property.

So, I had a job interview yesterday and by all means it went well; ten times better than my phone interview last month. I find face to face interviews are less torturous than phone.

Even though, the job has nothing to do with my major or degree it's still a good job considering the current work environment in this economy.

And yeah, don't underestimate extra curricular activities on your resume; mine was really a lifesaver since my work history is really short.

As it turns out, 3 hour long lectures on Shakespeare given by Portuguese women who have very strong accents are NOT the easiest way of spending your mornings.

Yesterday I had my second interview and it didn't go that well. The questions they asked were different than I the types that I had prepared for. For almost every question I had to think for a few seconds to come up with an answer. I know it's generally ok to do that, but I hate having to come up with something for a question that I haven't thought that they would ask me. I got out of there feeling like both the people who interviewed me were not interested in me at all. They shook my hand but their body language just seemed very uninterested and complacent. I can only hope they do that with every person because I got a bad vibe from them.

I'll find out what's going to happen in a week. At the very least, I now a few more types of questions that can be asked in interviews now.

I know back in high school my Business Studies teacher would always play classical music through class, he said it helped you take in more/remember, etc and said to use it as a study technique. I used it and i managed to get just beyond average for my final exams, compared to the crappy marks i had been getting through the year.

Thats probably what it is.

Lmao, grow up.


20 year olds don't just spontaneously have "multiple heart attacks".

They do if they were born with a bad heart. And I almost had two heart attacks in the same day. It happens to me every now and then, but it's never been as bad as this one. I might be visiting the hospital next time it acts up.

Anyway, college has been extremely busy for me the last week or so. I've finally caught up a little bit, but it's going to get busy again rather quickly in the next couple of days.
