Had such grand plans for today... but the only even remotely productive thing I did was laundry. Oh and a roast dinner. Sigh. 

Saturday, 30 May 2015

Essay submitted. Lectures x3 caught up on. Exam revision started.

Excellent day's work.




Friday, 29 May 2015

It's taken me almost as long to properly reference this damn essay as it did to write it. The downside of academia. Ugh.

New artwork for my office, as designed by the Belgian bestie's six and a half year old son. Love them both to bits.

Since when did it become acceptable to sit in the library munching away on a bag of crisps (Arsehat A) and chatting away on your mobile phone (Arsehat B), whilst those around you are trying to study quietly?

Infuriating.

Yet again, plan to go to bed early but still beavering away at midnight.

Ugh.

Monday, 25 May 2015

Why is it I get my second wind around midnight when I know I have to be up at 6.30am to go to work?! So. Annoying.

Also, discovered a major damp problem in the front corners of my bedroom. Wonder if that's contributing to my feeling very average the last couple of months?

Hurrah for Ireland!


Time for Australia to step up. If we can get entry into Eurovision (and place 5th - snaps Guy Sebastian), then surely we can get marriage equality.

Saturday, 23 May 2015

Distracted from essay writing by Eurovision. Just as well I got an extension on this assignment...

Ordered one pizza. One pizza delivered.

Charged three times.

That's a bloody expensive pizza.

Lesson learned? Don't eat pizza.

Sometimes the actors you're watching are so amazing that you forget they're still students and don't graduate for another six months. Cloudstreet at VCA was one of the most exquisite pieces of theatre I've seen in a very long time.

Love it when the Radelaide bestie comes to visit... we get to stay in posh hotels with lovely, heated, indoor swimming pools, which is the perfect way to recover the morning after after a huge concert.

A little older (all), a little fatter (Tony), a little more bald (Gary), a little (ok, a LOT) more grey (Martin), a little more haggard (John) and... no. You're eternally young, Steve.

I know this much is true.




Cracking night at Rod Laver Arena with the Radelaide bestie seeing the heartthrobs of our youth.

Gif keyboard got me like:

How I spent the majority of my weekend:


Saturday, 16 May 2015

Having the Leona Edmiston outlet shop within a five minute walk of my house is proving to be rather expensive. However, today I was channeling my inner Donna Meagle/Tom Haverford:

Gif keyboard is my new favourite thing. Seriously. I'm thinking of communicating only via gif text from here on in.

Paris accommodation for September is booked. A funky little (well, large by Paris standards) loft-style apartment in St Germain.

So.

Excited.


Tuesday, 12 May 2015

Existing on two hours sleep because the upstairs neighbour's hot water tank burst at 2am and flooded down into my kitchen. Luckily no major damage done, but ugh. Exhausted and have a ton of work to do before I can go to sleep.

The amount of work (both paid work and study) I need to get through in the next two weeks has got me like:


and also like:

Well that was a disastrous game of football, Hawthorn. Beaten by GWS? Shameful.

Friday, 8 May 2015

Continuing on my Distinction average for my degree... I suppose most people would be happy with that, but I really want HDs. Really, REALLY want HDs. Must. Work. Harder.

Thursday, 7 May 2015

If I ever do get a green card, I think I will hold the distinction of being the person who's had the most attempts... I'm up to about 14 now I think.

Well today didn't really go to plan... one thing (of about twenty) achieved on my to-do list. Pathetic.

Tuesday, 5 May 2015

Awesome catch up with my sister-from-another-mister, who's visiting from Radders. She's the best.

Monday, 4 May 2015

Musical chairs at work again this week... at least my temporary office has an awesome coffee machine in the kitchen!

There's another royal baby in the world; social media (and the media in general) has gone into meltdown mode and sub-editors have seemingly lost the ability to do their jobs in the rush to be the first to report information. It's equal parts hilarious and infuriating.

Saturday, 2 May 2015

Such a fun afternoon with my Claytons cousins at their parents' 50th wedding anniversary. We've known each other our whole lives and although we rarely spend any time together nowadays, we're still as thick as thieves.

Friday, 1 May 2015

My TV has been on for more (continuous) hours today than it has since Christmas (which is when LB was last visiting). It's driving me bonkers.
