Completely overslept... I blame the NyQuil my lovely colleague had her sister bring me from the US. Powerless to resist it when there's a chance of me getting a decent night's sleep for once.

So much fun at Bumpa's new venture, Vau d'Vile, tonight. Will definitely be back to check out all the other shows!

Wednesday, 29 March 2017

Seriously universe... did my family smash a bunch of mirrors while I wasn't looking?? LB and Brutha both having the worst luck right now.

Tuesday, 28 March 2017

Always awesome to be able to have enough of a break from study to be able to read for fun again. Hannah Kent, I am excited to finally get cracking on The Good People.

Monday, 27 March 2017

Essay finished and uploaded with 4 hours to spare. Time for a glass of vino and an early night methinks...

Sunday, 26 March 2017

If you're going to be forced to spend your Sunday finishing an essay, you may as well do it in comfort...



Saturday, 25 March 2017

Well at least I've done a bunch of reading.

No actual progress on the essay, but hey. I'm the queen of procrastination and last-minute essay writing, right?

Friday, 24 March 2017

Lots of housework, very little study happening today.

Must have an essay due.

Thursday, 23 March 2017

Finally popped my MCG cherry with the first game of the AFL season. Not a bad way to spend a mild autumn Thursday night.

2017 is shaping up to be just as much of a freaking shit-show as 2016.

I mean, come ON. Why hasn't Trump been impeached yet?

Tuesday, 21 March 2017

Me at work.

All day, every day right now.



Monday, 20 March 2017

Made it through the final day of headshots... even got the proof sheets done.

Now I just need to tackle the mountain of work that awaits me in the office...

Sunday, 19 March 2017

Zero study done this weekend.

Full on week of work coming up, plus at least one trip to Ballarat to get LB from hospital, plus an essay due this time next week, plus potentially an interview for my job.

Can I just crawl into a hole for the next year please?
Wow. Those Music Theatre kids BROUGHT. IT.

They are going to have the most awesome headshots of any graduating students this year.

Friday, 17 March 2017

Headshot photo shoot day for the Theatre third years...

Started at 8am.

Finished at 8:15pm.

Have to be back at 8.30am tomorrow for the Music Theatre third years.



Thursday, 16 March 2017

Job application done and submitted by lunchtime.

Let's see how it goes...

Wednesday, 15 March 2017

When you realise the job application is not due Friday, it's due TOMORROW.

Was going to post something about how awesome cupping is (because it is and I have it all the time and I had it today and I LOVE it), but then I googled for pics.

DO. NOT. GOOGLE. IMAGE. SEARCH. CUPPING.

#terrifying

My life right now...



Trying to get shit done, but keep getting interrupted.

Saturday, 11 March 2017

God bless Adam at the Apple Store in Chadstone. Tries everything he can think of to fix the rogue 'f' key on my Macbook, then surmises that it's beyond help and needs a new 'top case' (whatever that hell that is), which will cost $350 and leave me without a laptop for at least a week. My horror was clearly evident because about half a second later he's grabbing a wireless keyboard and waving its $165 price tag in front of my face. Given my Macbook is 2014 and I will likely be upgrading in the next year or so, I jumped at the suggestion.

Friday, 10 March 2017

Took me a while to get around to seeing Kinky Boots, but I finally did tonight! Lots of fun. I mean, it's no Hamilton, but it's exuberant and joyous and whacky and a lovely way to spend a few hours. It was also a pleasant change from last night's theatrical yawn-fest.

Thursday, 9 March 2017

First Barre class in a few weeks followed by opening night of Faith Healer at MTC. Both left me feeling less than stellar.

Happy International Women's Day!

Tuesday, 7 March 2017

Thought-provoking talk at the Wheeler Centre tonight... raised some really interesting, disturbing and rage-inducing responses. And that was just from me.

Monday, 6 March 2017

Most productive day I've had in ages: house clean, laundry done, the dreaded pap smear completed... even managed to squeeze in a cheeky brunch/coffee/reading session!

Sunday, 5 March 2017

Wish I'd discovered that the 'f' key on my keyboard wasn't working BEFORE I spent the afternoon at Chadstone.* Now I can't get a Genius Bar appointment until NEXT Saturday.

On the upside - I bought a Soda Stream! Fizzy water ALL THE TIME and no throwing out a dozen or more plastic bottles a week.


* Typing the letter 'f' currently requires a ridiculous combination of auto-correct and copy + paste. So. Annoying.

4 of 8 hours solid driving, starting at 7.30am. 4pm nap essential.

Friday, 3 March 2017

Two lots of work drinks and catch up drinks with a friend. Sozzled by 7pm. 

Thursday, 2 March 2017

There's seriously not enough hours in the day right now. I'm practically doing investment banking hours... but without the free dinner and cab ride home.

Wednesday, 1 March 2017

When your colleague who sits less than 10 feet away has a cold but insists that they're "fine" as they cough and sneeze and blow their nose all day; then around 4pm you start to feel a bit blurgh yourself...
