Yeah this fire thing is getting pretty desperate. The better part of the entire state has been issued emergency warnings as well as an official state of emergency declaration.

Figures are sketchy but reports of up to 100 houses destroyed are going round and at least one person is dead. Things are looking pretty grim for our state capitol.

In what I hope doesn’t turn out to be a lucky coincidence I returned from Newcastle today. House still intact and doesn’t look like the fire threat in my suburb is too high at the moment. Let’s hope they can get it under control everywhere else.

In other happy news I missed out on 10 billion uni courses. I always knew it would be like this but knowing it officially was still crap. Who knows where this year will take me. That’s the beauty of being ultra-existentialist – no expectations.
