Last night me and Robert went to Larissa's Lotr marathon. That was a really good night. I haven't seen Larissa much lately so it was really good to be able to catch up again. The marathon went for 12 hours straight. ahh fun. & none of us played the drinking game cos we would have all been trashed before the first movie was over.

Bookfest was also on again this weekend. I love bookfest. I spent about $27, and ended up with 11 books. yay.

If you were changing degrees and universities next year, and had a stupid.stupid history essay due tomorrow, would you write it?

'Cause I most certainly am not.

I haven't actually posted here in a while, I've been hell lazy. So I'll do a little update methinks.

Sunday, training sessions for workie started. So there have been two so far. It's pretty good so far. People are nice. And there is a small group of us all doing the training so we get to know people before we start which is good. Yesterday I discovered one of the guys in the group is good friends with my cousin. So that was a bit strange.

My closest friend moved to Canada on friday. So I won't see her for two years. There was a big 'happy 21st + goodbye' party for her. So we all got to say yay[i'll miss you]. ah. People leaving all at once. Luke and Drewbean left the day before the terrorist threat in Britain. So I've been a little bit nothappy since then. I think I'm afraid that after this trip he won't want to come back.

andandand Chris who is my unofficial brother is coming back to Brisbane soon. I didn't really get to see much of him last month because he was all 'it's LUKE(!) I'm going to be a silly-head'. But I have to remember to CALL HIM, because I demand a visit. This is mostly just a reminder for me.

I'm starting to wonder how on earth I managed to stay awake for the whole day last year. Lately I'll go to class..then be exhausted and have to go home and sleep. I think I need to invest in lots of yucky-tasting energy drinks.

I've been listening to the Boy From Oz soundtrack [both of them]. and oh. I want to goooooo. Stupid being reallyreally lots of money. My auntie is going. And Larissa is going. SHE DOES NOT EVEN KNOW WHO PETER ALLEN IS. aw. Butbut, a bunch of family, which includes me, are going to see The Pirates of Penzance. I used to watch a video of it every day when I was younger. aaaaaaaaaaand Anthony Warlow is the pirate king *fangirly squeal*. I'll get to see Warlow on the stage ner ner ner ner.

I poked the American in the eye. I didn't mean to, his eye got in the way of my hand. And now he's out to get me. Tomorrow we fly to Cairns, and he knows I hatehatehate flying. I'm getting the feeling that he's going to make it the worst plane trip ever

little update [Jul. 11th, 2006|02:52 pm]

[music |Stay Loose - Belle & Sebastian]

I am still here. and oh. the new Whitlams song is making me want to cry, buckets.

Luke is home, and it is strange. But a good strange. I guess I've just grown so used to having him away that it's just weird. So it has been a bit crazy here the last week or so. Two boys wanting to do everything and see everyone all at once. They need to chill out a bit.

His friend that he brought back with him is a little bit annoying and thinks I'm weird. But he's ok, he's just like an annoying little brother right now.

My father is trying to buy me once again. He really loses what little respect I have for him when he does this. Although the last time was years ago. He is paying for my trip to Cairns, offered to buy my first car, and bought be a laptop. What I'm supposed to do with two laptops I'm not quite sure.

With Luke being here I'm noticing that time really is a lie. Dad emailed me telling me how much he has changed since he was last here - that he has become a 'man'. This had little effect on me, I don't believe in men, only boys. But I'm surprised at how much he appears not to have changed. He's still a bigot. One more racist remark and I'm just about ready to snap.

But anyway, it's good to finally have him back home.

On friday the three of us are off to Cairns to be happy tourists. Much fun to be had indeed.

ohoh. and I have new hair. I shall put photos up when I have some.

Well, exams are over. I love this feeling of not having any uni work to do. I can just relax and do nothing. joy.

Politics exam was easier than I thought it was going to be. I knew all the answers and could have squealed with delight during the perusal. But I did not, that might have been awkward. I finished it quite, quickly, and am pretty confident that I will pass the subject so, yay.

So now I'm going to be all relaxful and wait until the 5th of July. Brother will be coming home for the first time in two years, and results published. (the first is more exciting)

exams [Jun. 21st, 2006|04:56 pm]

[music |free bird = lynard skynard]

I had my first exam today. It was all rainy, and I had to walk to the bus in the rain. By the time I got to uni I was very cold and wet. In the exam I couldn't stop shaking, it was awful. The exam was crap too. I don't think I did well at all. Luckily I don't need the exam to pass the subject. I didn't even finish it. gah. 2 hours to write an essay AND a short response of about 500 words. Surely the essay would have been enough.

Well, I've got one more to go. It's tomorrow. ack!

So, I have come to the conclusion that my room can never actually be clean, depite my best avoiding-study efforts. I have too much stuff. It's just a big cluttered mess.

I've been locking myself in here promising myself that I'll study, because I really shouldn't have skipped so many politics lectures, and turning up to a tutorial might have helped. So I know very little of what I should. And keeping anything that I read in my brain, is really, very difficult. I've read three books since finishing all my assignments. I haven't read like this in a while - I'm reading novels like they're all going to burn.

and. I keep forgeting what I called my fish. I'm considering getting it a name tag, so I can remember. belvedere. that.is.your.name. I can't remember its name, but if he dies I will cry.

they have the poem I wrote for the creative part of my social sciences assignment on display at uni. I wish they would take it down, 'cause I don't like it.

and that is enough crapping on for today, I think.
