I’m sorry, what did you say? Oh, yes, that I have less than a month left before I’m a university graduate? I know, it’s wonderful!
Too bad that three major assignments, two exams and a 24 hour pitch is standing in my way before I am free to celebrate.
Sorry, can’t hear you when you are mumbling.. You’re saying that I need to get off the internet and keep studying? How about, no? No? Okay then.
I have started the end of my australian adventure, it all happened when I booked my flight back home this morning. Suddenly I have a set date, not just some distant future and I need to plan what it is I want to do while I am still here so that I won’t regret it later.
November 28 seemed like a good day to leave so I will do that. Back on swedish ground on a wonderful thursday and I will miss a lot with this place however, I am glad to come home, to have some winter. Oh, how I have longed for a winter. A proper one. It’s just too bad that I’ll leave here just as summer sets in for real. Such a strange feeling…
Living alone again for the first time has both perks and annoyances. As much as I hate being on my own, I do like having my own bathroom, it’s amazing. The perkiest perk is that wherever I put my stuff, it will stay there until I decide to move it. No one will mess things up or borrow what is mine. The most annoying annoyance is that I’m alone, however I still expect someone to share the responsibilities.. I get worked up over the fact that no one else noticed we are out of toothpaste, or that the floors are once again in need of a good clean. Then I remember that there is no one else, it’s just me and that gets annoying after a while (I’ve also noticed that no one else will go and buy me food when I’m hungry).
I might seem like a perfectly good loner but I’m really not. I like to be alone WITH people so that we can all be alone together.
Sometimes I come in here and get disappointed that no one has written in so long. It is almost as I expect someone to have taken over in my utterly selfish absence. Unfortunately no one has and I keep getting disappointed. Then I think of all the hoards of people who visit everyday in hopes of an update, poor things, I’m so sorry.
Now peace can be restored, I’ve updated. You’re welcome.
School has started again! Oh. My. God. I’m not psyched. Feels like summer’s over and yet it’s over 35 degrees outside every day. I know I shouldn’t wish for cold but I am starting to understand a little why so many Perthians claim winter is their favourite season… It’s hard to imagine that I will not be here this time next year - it’s so (too?) soon!
Nothing else is really up. Best thing that could happen this week already did when the whole class got an extension on our poster assignment. I really needed that even though it means I’ve got three assignments/test all due in the same week now. Well.. I’d rather have it this way so.. YAY!
Work is great, however, I don’t get as many hours as I hoped I would. And I’ve been working every friday, saturday and sunday since I’ve started. Therefore I’ve taken this sunday off to spend with David. We rarely see each other nowadays with work taking up his time and uni + work taking up mine. Will be nice to do something else this weekend, although with my luck, I’m sure it’ll rain.
Nowhere to go, nothing to do…
It kind of sucks working almost only weekends.. Not that working in itself sucks that much but I never do things during the week. I sit (or mostly I lay down). It’s so hard to actually get outside to do something when you have to do it all by yourself and it’s easy to pretend-do something.
Like this week, I’ve pretend-gone to the gym every day. I get dressed appropriately when I wake up and then wait for the right moment to leave the house and all of the sudden David is about to come home and it’s too late - I’ve wasted the day preparing to go somewhere I never did. And that’s what I do. Usually I light up a little bit more on the weekends and go somewhere with David but right now I can’t.
However next weekend is going to be lovely! We fly to Sydney on thursday night and arrive early friday morning (like 6am, but since Sydney’s three hours ahead of us it’s more like 3am). We’ll start it all by sleeping a couple of hours and will then spend the looong weekend looking at things (shopping) and relaxing. It’s going to be wonderful!
And then the weekend after it’s Bon Iver and I can’t wait to go!
