Well, there it be done. The first decent drive by myself. To work – where I parked fairly clumsily, hate multistory carparks. Worked 4 hours. Came back to the car and remembered just how close I was to a pole one side of the car… ho hum 😛 Thankfully I got out sucessfully without touching anything. Laura would’ve been cranky as.

Drove to Croydon, where I parked perfectly. Picked up my slides which look good exposure/focus/everything-wise which is fantastic! Bought an el’cheapo camera bag for the SLR and some normal film play around with.

Ahhh I love driving myself!

If anyone is interested you can come and watch me graduate (from Tabor)
Saturday 1st April at 2pm. Berwick Church of Christ. 432-446 Centre Rd Berwick. Melways 11 A12. You’ll even get a free afternoon tea. I don’t know how interesting it’ll be though.
I’m not too fussed about the whole thing. Its a bit of overkill having to wear grad gowns for a Certificate IV. Ah well.

Tomorrow my family has 5 tickets to go (which someone gave us) see Arial Gymnastics for the Commonwealth Games. Unfortunately I found out today that I am working. 5-10:15. I am not impressed. I might attempt to get the shift off. If not, I guess that means the other five get the experience.

To be honest I have absolutely zero excitement about the Commonwealth Games being in Melbourne. I mean who cares. It’s not the Olympics. Having lived overseas I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Commonwealth Games (or been around) when one’s been on. I wouldn’t mind seeing an event. I did not watch the opening ceremony, bar about 2 minutes when Mum insisted I look at something. It’s a waste of money.


“Where’s your daily blog post?” – John

Before I spit today onto paper a brief back track to yesterday afternoon. I walked up the road to Dominos and ordered pizza the way you’re meant to have it, which means PINEAPPLE and CHICKEN (and something a bit different on Jess’s half) waited for her. Then there was this massively memorable moment of having a very interesting talk in the car while stuffing our hungry mouths full of pizza, while Jess is driving of course and probably bopping (I dont know any other way to explain it) to whatever music she prefered. Anyway as that was a memorable moment I figured I’d better put it down somewhere so I wouldn’t forget.

Today bought 7 hrs straight of uni. Which, despite the reasonable nature of all three classes, is painfully long and pretty tiring. Wednesday shall have to become coffee day. The Corner Cafe has my full patronage after 5pm. The good thing about Wednesdays now is that my tute was shifted back one hour, so the 10 o’clock start is fractionally more blissful than the 9. Unfortunately this also means I get no lunchbreak until I can bolt out of class in the ‘semi-break’ around 3pm to stuff my face full of food (aside from a museli bar or two which I consume while I’m not being observed, as the room is not meant to be food friendly).

Tute 1. Bought a 25 minute delay to even get the door open. So we all hung around outside sort of talking. Tutor of course did not have a key/swipe.

Tute 2. Bought a weary hello to Jeremy and Zoe (whom I met today) a 3rd year Pro Writing student. Lucky girl. I was loading a photoshop file while class was going on, it took over half an hour and multiple restarts (this is on a Mac) stupid computers. It finally behaved and I compressed it immediately whereby it behaved.

Tute/Worshop 3. Sat with Rebecca and Adina. Painful painful watching everyone show their slides for assignment 1 and hear him talk through all the mistakes. Painful because there were SO many people who had entirely missed that appetures and shutterspeeds actually relate to eachother. Had my break, met Lucas whereby we discussed the tedium of 3hrs and the, “Have you done photography before” type stuff. No problem that I couldn’t show mine today there were about 8 others in the same boat. Slides should be ready tomorrow.

Drove by myself tonight. Not too far, just up to the video shop. I tried seeing if I could catch up w/ various people but they were all either not home or occupied. Emily came with me to ‘choose’. I like it 😀 Freedom.

Tomorrow I’m stealing (with permission) Laura’s car and heading to work then I have to work out how to get to Croydon to go pick up those slides.

RAM came. I have now got a fast computer and Photoshop! I’m a happy chapp..girl.

I watched When Harry Met Sally by myself and for the first time (yes I know it’s really old), simply upon whim. Aside from the 80’s hair and fashion and the unattractiveness of the actors it was quite a good movie, romantic comedy wise. Interesting theories 🙂

I feel far too busy.
