Three cheers for uni!

My slides were found (along with everyone elses) and wound their way into the Arts Collection point, where I did just that. They are now in my posession. I need now to find an afternoon, a spare scanner and template and get them digitized.

They also finalised my mark for Comparitive Imaging. I got a D(isinction), strangely enough my lowest mark (score-wise) and I thought it’d be my best subject – ah well there you go.

Unfortunate timing bus-wise on Fridays (and a pity because it’s going to keep up). Finish at 11am and get home around 1pm, due to time delays between finishing class, busses and trains etc.


Nothing deep and meaningful coming from my end at all tonight, far too stuffed.

Helped Elyce celebrate her 19th. Had nothing short of a banquet. Not too big a party so it was quite nice. Then some Survivor type games including fire building to burn through a string and the speedy consumption of food. Josie, Matt (Jo’s boy :P) and I failed to win, despite having lead the entire way through. The other group had four. Of yits’ers it was only Sam, Jo, Elle and Myself. Excellent evening, I feel far too full. Pavlova is superb and I didn’t even have that big a piece!

Windscreen frozen over this morning, Dad hosed it once for me, but it froze again – second time it worked (when I was around to actually start the car). I skipped breakfast, a good thing as I nearly missed my train. The car stalled 5 times on the way to the station. Not impressed. I drive an automatic! It’s only a 10 minute trip. Steering sounded shocking tonight after being parked on a very steep angle at Elyces and the battery light was smiling glumly away at me. Oh the joys.

Sleep I want sleep!

General Life

“We would rather die than not be able to choose our spouse, yet we would rather divorce that same spouse than choose to love them. We want the option to choose without the responsibility
to choose.” (when it comes to love I’m pro-choice)

Mum said, mentioned or questioned something interesting tonight.

The phrase ‘Fall in Love’. Why is it fall?

The general thing you think of when you think about falling is the none too pleasant landing at the end of it.

I’ve experienced this personally many times in my life, from the dramatic slide off a horse (on a stupid trial ride) – where I was totally unconcious (literally) to the landing only to hurt for weeks after, to the odd ending up on the floor after having been in bed – surprise, hurt and no more comfortable mattress, to tripping on the gravel in primary school – okay some blood in this one. None of the above situations were overly pleasant and I dare say those that you can recall ended roughly the same.

I like the fact that love is a good bit about responsibility, it means it’s not all passive and wishy washy. I wouldn’t want that for anyone. Effort means you are going out of your way for something – which throws ‘self’ out of the window, at least for a while. It’s such a good expression of what love is!

Alternatively the ‘Fall’ part of “Fall in Love” could simply refer to the clumsy nature of the whole business, the uncharted, unplanned aspect of the whole deal. Perhaps we should just “Trip in Love”? It’s more applicable.

“When falling in love, we seem to float on air.” – Diogenes Allen quoted in this exceptional article

Does anyone else find this exceedingly ironic?

I am not condemning infatuation, or anything of the like. In some ways it has it’s place. It just looks like the footing isn’t too stable.

Can we just recoin the whole deal to “Fall in-fatuation”?

Spare time? Check out some of the other interesting articles over at TrueU if you can get past the slightly cringey name.
