Never underestimate the power of a puppy to lift your spirits after a truly awful week.


Thursday, 29 September 2016

Take the last two days' posts, multiply them by about 1,000 and it about sums up today.

When I said "this is going be a long, painful week"?

I may have underestimated just how painful.

Tuesday, 27 September 2016

This is going to be a long, painful week. SO. PAINFUL.

Monday, 26 September 2016

Stayed up until 3.30am, was up again at 8am, had to have a disco nap at 3pm, but had completed the exam by 7.30pm.


Sunday, 25 September 2016

Final essay submitted.

Cramming a trimester's worth of reading into a day so I can pass this exam. Thank god it's only worth 40% of my total mark.

The Western Bulldogs (red, white and blue) just had an historic win over Greater Western Sydney (orange) to book a spot in the AFL Grand Final next week, where they will meet the Sydney Swans (red and white).

If the Doggies can beat Sydney, I am taking it as a sign that Hillary will beat Trump, come Nov 8.

Because, democratic blue, republican red, Trump is orange, etc.

YES, THAT IS HOW MY BRAIN WORKS.

Ridiculously proud of one of my students tonight... her determination to pitch, create and develop a solo show over the last 5 months is nothing short of inspirational. Her show is topical, funny, moving, and above all entertaining. I look forward to watching it (and her) take on the world stage.

Thursday, 22 September 2016

Four shows down, three to go... so far it's been a mixed bag, but kudos to my gorgeous students for putting their own work out there - it's a a brave, brave thing to devise a theatrical work from scratch.

This is how frazzled my brain is...

I am using Ikea as a point of reference in my essay on the evolution of the female detective in television crime drama.

IKEA.

This is either going to be genius, or a complete disaster.

See yesterday's post.

Times it by 10.

Repeat it for the next who-knows-how-freaking-long.

Dealing with an elderly, cantankerous parent is karma for having been a pain-in-the-ass child, isn't it?





Saturday, 17 September 2016

Thank god for Uber Eats or I'd regularly starve...

Friday, 16 September 2016

Better than expected performance from the final year Music Theatre kids... although they could all do with having compulsory Alexander Technique classes to ensure they're not straining themselves.

Thursday, 15 September 2016

All day staff conference... fun, but tiring. So tiring, that dinner was mashed leftover veggies. Thank god I don't have to worry about feeding anyone but myself.

Wednesday, 14 September 2016

Life is too short to dawdle around... if everyone just did it my way, it would be done so much faster.





Also,

I hate compromise.

Tuesday, 13 September 2016

So much uni work to do and instead I do laundry. And answer endless phone calls requiring me to rehash the same information... I should just make a recording.

Monday, 12 September 2016

A long day of driving, then train-ing and I've finally arrived back in Melbs. Feel like I could sleep for a month. 

Sunday, 11 September 2016

Successful weekend got me like:

Me, this afternoon after we actually got LB to commit to selling the house:




Friday, 9 September 2016

A long day's driving and we're in Radders. Let's see how it all pans out.

Thursday, 8 September 2016

In Warrnambool, ready to drive to Radders tomorrow. Going to be a massive weekend...

Wednesday, 7 September 2016

Need to pack for tomorrow's trip to Radders.
Also need to write an essay.

Don't really need to be watching episodes of The Wire, but that's what's occurring.


Tuesday, 6 September 2016

Really getting into The Wire, which is required watching for one of my subjects. (So is The Sopranos, but for some reason that one just leaves me cold).

Monday, 5 September 2016

Feels weird not to be working Mondays anymore. On the upside, I now get a 4-day weekend. On the downside, I have to start spending those 4-day weekends commuting to Radders to deal with family stuff.

Sunday, 4 September 2016

Really haven't achieved much today either... googling how to make rugelach and buying crystals does not an essay write.

Saturday, 3 September 2016

Feeling contemplative after a session with a trusted friend. Five months. Good to know.

Friday, 2 September 2016

So many things to do today and all I achieved was some grocery shopping and laundry.

Oh well. Try again tomorrow.

Thursday, 1 September 2016

My shoulder and neck are going click-crazy after a cupping session this afternoon...
