For almost exactly two years now, I’ve been contemplating a deceptively simple question: “Why do you call yourself ‘Nitemice’? Why don’t you use your real name?” I was asked these questions by a person I met at a party once, when I told them about my blog. And I couldn’t give them an answer. But after two years, almost to the day, of consideration and ponderment, I finally have an answer for them. Continue Reading
As much as I would’ve like to have blogged a lot more this semester, I just haven’t had the time or motivation. But with a brand new site and some more time on my hands (hopefully), that’s all going to change.
Because I had my first full week of Uni this week, I’ve been pretty flat-chat. And from the looks of things, that’s not going to change any time soon.

So, this week was the last week of my traineeship. It’s all over now. This year really has been such a good experience, in so many ways. Not only did I get to try out working in IT, but I got practical experience in a range of areas, I got a qualification to go with it, and I had a generally good time doing it. I’m really happy that I did it and proud that I got through the Cert 3, and I think what I’ve learnt this year will serve me well going into the future.
