London [Jun. 11th, 2006|06:07 pm]
London. Been here since Thursday and I think I've just managed to get over the jet lag. It was truly horrible. I completely lost my appetite and couldn't sleep and just generally felt crap. Last night armed with some serious ear plugs and lots of herbal sleeping pills I managed to have a full decent nights sleep. I feel so much better!

Woke up early today and ended up having a great day. Got the tube to Covent Garden but was too early for all the shops... (what's with shops opening at 12 on sundays?) so walked around then headed to trafalgar square and ended up in st james gardens and laughed at the pommies sunbaking in a park (seriously there were deck chairs and swimming costumes). Then I went to Tate Modern... fuck it was great. I just realised that I've never been to a gallery by myslef before, so much better than doing it with others. You can go at your own pace.

Then this afternoon I went to Camden markets to meet Marty. Too much to take in and we were chatting the whole time so will have to go back to shop when I have more time. We then had a Pimms at a cool cool cool pub where they have All Tomorrow's parties nights (when we were there they played simon and garfunkel and elliott smith on the stereo!). Then Marty and I got the bus to Oxford st to change some stuff in Topshop for him and just have a look around. I'm buggered but had a great day. Best day so far.

Tomorrow I'm going to stay with Rich and Becky (cousin and his wife) and hopefully watch the first Australia world cup match somewhere.

I'll post more soon. Miss Australia already!

5 weeks to go! [Apr. 29th, 2006|02:36 pm]
Arrrrgh! I leave the country in 5 weeks! I still can't beleive I'm doing it, it seems so surreal, I feel like I'm planning someone else's trip.

Today mum and I went to Chatswood and she bought me some Birkenstocks like this. Now I feel like a real traveller. Also bought a funky red leather I-pod case and some undies and a new Bonds hoodie. Still so much stuff to organise, but I finally feel like i'm getting there.

So, I'm going to be in London for a week. 4 days stayig in a hostel and hopefully 3 days crashing with my cousin and his wife. I'm looking forward to just wandering around London, going to galleries, markets, shops, parks and doing stuff I didn't get to do last time I was there. There are a few clubs I want to check out too so hopefully I can fit it all in.

Then on the 15th of June we (Mon, Sarah and I) fly to Dublin to begin our Irish adventure. I just sent off my visa application last week so hopefully that comes back quickly. I'm looking forward to having and Irish stew and a guinness in a pub with locals who I can't understand a word of. 

Still have to organise travel insurance... luckily Phil has offered to pay for that. Score.

Anyway, my planning continues. I'm not doing anything tonight just going to stay in, save money and think about all the fun I'll have overseas... ahh.

So I bit the bullet [Apr. 4th, 2006|10:10 pm]
I bought my ticket!!! Ahhhhhhh!

I'm leaving on the 7th June, flying to London with Korean Airlines, one night stopover in Seoul.

Staying in London til the 15th June then flying to Dublin with Monique.

Whoah! Exciting but scary.

Freaking out about money and finding a job but I'm sure I'll manage, just have to jump in the deep end.

So long [Mar. 11th, 2006|04:05 pm]
I haven't updated in ages.

So I went to Byron Bay for a week and it was the best holiday ever. We were pretty much stoned the whole time. It was sooooo relaxing waking up and lying by the pool and then having a drink and playing board games. Some highlights include Amelia, Adrian and I having a glitter shower (yes, it WAS a glitter shower! we saw it with our own eyes!) and visiting Nimbin. Joel said that Nimbin was "the grossest town he's ever been to". Ha!

Anyway, since I've been back I've been working a lot and saving my moola.

Will post Byron pics when I can be bothered

Back home [Jan. 21st, 2006|09:28 pm]
So I'm back at home after a lovely two weeks house sitting in Newtown. I seriously didn't want to come home. It was so nice just being able to walk home after having a drink or dinner on King St, and there is so much great shopping. Ahh... I definitely have a taste for that area now. As soon as I can manage after I come home from O/S I will be moving out.

I have decided that I want to learn how to play the drums. More research will be conducted into this soon.

I've been working at the library lots. I had a stalker one day but apart from that it's been great.

I went to STA the other day and had a chat with a guy about my trip... I'm getting excited and am thinking about booking my ticket soon.

Big Day Out less than a week away. So psyched. Liv is coming too so we are going to run around like mad women all day seeing lots of great music. Pumped about seeing the Go! Team again.

Anyway, just a quick update. Can't be arsed with everything else.

I got a sexy new phone like this yesterday. I don't even know how to use it but it was free and I'm on a better contract now so... yay!

I'm house sitting in Newtown with Beth for the next 2 weeks. I'm sure I'll be home at some point but I'll be there most of the time. I have a feeling that i'll get a taste for living out of home and never want to come back. Beth and I might just decide to take over the house and change the locks... watch out lady!

Erm... that's it. I'm working tomorrow at 9am which is gonna suck. I haven't been getting up any earlier than 10:30 recently. Damn.

P.S. We got Foxtel digital... bring on VH1!

TAFE results [Jan. 5th, 2006|11:29 am]
So I just got my TAFE results and once again I kicked ass. My academic transcript is flawless! All distinctions or pass (ungraded). Gotta love TAFE and the easiness of it.

In other news I have been selling my stuff on Ebay. Some sucker bought my old sportsgirl jeans for $31! Ha!
