Bulletin Board: Another attempt at being up myself

Major news as to the reason why I'm not blogging as often as I should be on this website is because I'm radiating a huge smile that I wish you readers could see. Here's a picture of my toothsome smile:

The reason why my beaming smile could light up the neon lights of Las Vegas is because I'm now working at Immigration Solutions Lawyers. As many people can tell you, any gig which revolves around your passion is something pursuing.

What I really wanted is a mentor and combining my passion in media and law into one, it was like the universe heard my calls and this job dropped in my lap. The legal industry is still trying the grasp the concept of online media and I was exciting to inject a bit of pizazz into this world. As we all know, making legal related stories interesting is a hard job to follow.

So if you want to follow up on any news related to immigration law, or law in general, just search me here.

Though my profile on the website is not up yet, when it does, I'll definitely show it to you because I like to be applauded with my achievements.

Now, I must get off the soap box before someone else thinks I've become a massive know-it-all.

Happy reading,

The Truth About The Truth

As a student of law, I'm trained to be a skeptic. This is because most of our future clients will most likely lie to us.

We're told from birth lying is bad. Constantly. This is demonstrated in the fairy tale story of Pinocchio, where his nose grows every time he utters a lie. Those cliche sayings such as, "The truth will set you free" and "The truth always comes out anyway" are some other examples where it's drilled into our heads that lying is bed. Even the law will whack us a fine, or even gaol time if we've misconstrued the truth in any shape or form.

However, when it comes to avoiding trouble, or sparing someone's feelings, many will find themselves lying to save themselves. We lie with much abandonment. Even Hollywood would go broke if people didn't lie. Just go to the cinemas and chances are, plots are based on deceit of some form.

The fact is lying is a necessity. We're taught from an early age by our parents to protect someone else's feelings. Like telling Uncle Ned he looks fine in his bathers, when really his stomach hanging over his bathers like a sore eye.

So why do we do it? Because the truth hurts. The pain of hearing a news that you didn't want to hear, even sends the innocent to lie.

No matter how hard we try to ignore or hide from a situation or a person, the lies eventually fall away. Whether we like to believe or not, the truth about the truth? It hurts. That's why we lie.

Happy reading!

The Six Month Bludge

According to the Macquarie Dictionary, the term bludge is:

" n. An Australian, NZ Colloquial term to describe someone who is avoiding responsibilities and almost has no work".

I think this term describes the reason why my blog is remained inactive for the last six months. I have been a bad blogger and I expect it to scream at me at any second now. Who wouldn't scream at someone who hasn't been feeding her favourite confectionery, green apple liquorice? Or go on a six month absence without notice? I wouldn't be a happy lady either.

I shall stop the self depreciating jokes and tell you what's been happening in the last six months.

Until recently, the only sweets I'd been consuming on a regular basis was green apple liquorice. That was until I stumbled onto the quiet streets of Newtown and discovered this little gem:

And until yesterday, I think I consumed approximately 203 pieces of this humble dessert:

Who knew lemons could make delicious desserts? I was taught lemons were acidic little buggers that'll weaken the enamel of your teeth. Maybe it's the copious amounts of sugar used in this dessert, but it has kept me company through the recent examination crisis - where I had to memorise the changes of certain legislations and hear my fellow law comrades moan about closed book exams.

I shall be writing posts which contain more meaningful topics in the near future.

Happy reading!
