It’s another monday (at uni) and I’m sitting in the brand spanking new internet cafe “Caffeine” – I probably shouldn’t be here as I haven’t actually bought anything. Far many more computers than the Corner Cafe, and architecturally/aesthetically pleasing. Gosh Coffee in Box Hill was the fortunate business to get my patronage today. Buying one coffee is more than enough. I’m justifying sitting here by knowing Jen is two computers down from me and she bought a hot chocolate from them… and look, she’s playing FreeCell. Such the appeal of actually working!
There are certain things I really like about uni. Despite not being a very good morning person my body clock rights itself a few weeks in, which means I’m definitely getting there now. I can handle the waking up early quite well.
I love being around our house when I’m the only one awake. I like any morning sun that gets through, the look of fog and other early beautiful things. I really like the drive down the station (except if the car decides to stall) and the time you get to think/pray or just be. There are those days where I can get the same train as Geoff (what a delightful coincidence!) which makes the whole public transport thing thoroughly enjoyable. I mentioned Gosh coffee before… despite being perfectly situated – you can’t escape the aroma, and are of course thoroughly tempted, the two ladies who work there (well, the one that serves) is exceptionally cheerful. So once I reach the cold wait for the bus; I’ve spent time with Geoff, have a coffee in hand and been served by someone who’s brilliant attitude has further rubbed off on me, the sparse but what I think is beautiful view from the bus terminal over the roofs to look at and masses of birds. It all adds up to a very content feeling, which makes the bus trip enjoyable, usually funny and simply nicer in seeing those ‘regular’ faces.
So as a total change of tune, I’ve been sitting here for a good hour on a stool (doing wonders for my back) as the Studio area has some renovations going on above and beside us and they’ve been drilling holes in the roof and other such nuisances all morning. By about September, it will be the largest motion capture studio in Australia apparently! Here however is no quieter. I have a headache from the constant chatter and the music I’m using to drown it out, my eyes are sore. I’m a bit stuck for concentration and have thus given up on attempting homework.
Productive studio session. Discussion around Open Day stuff – “Glimpse Your Future” (what a tacky name). Which means I have to come into uni on Sunday – hooray! Ah well. I don’t know how organised we are as a whole, I certainly have done my bit. Picked the ‘later’ shift, that way I can hopefully get church in beforehand.
Next is a tute for Systems. Bring on D Morisson’s ‘game’ (one every tute) and hopefully he’ll have some idea of what he’s talking about this week.
I do apologise (to myself mostly) for the very big lack of posts with any real substance lately. I keep intending to, as there have been a few things I’ve been thinking about. The words will not come and the thoughts are refusing to complete themselves, which means my head has felt remarkably empty of late, this disturbs me. Until that rights itself, you’ll have to be content with posts like this (the daily borings) or nothing. Then of course, I could always torture your interest with some BlogThings.
