Friday Ramblings

Firstly, check out this song. Amazing. AMAZING. I am in love. Of course I just found out Lana Del Rey is playing a show at the Oxford Arts Factory in Sydney in February and the tickets went on sale and promptly sold out this morning. DAMNATION!

Totally suits my mood at them moment- but I won't even start on that for fear I will never stop!

Thought I was getting to finish work for the year on Monday, that has now been changed to Wednesday. I can barely get out of bed in the mornings. Gah. 

For the first time in my ENTIRE life I submitted an assignment a day early this week. It felt so GOOD. So that is what it feels like not to be finishing off referencing 30 minutes before it's meant to be turned in haha? Might have to do this more often. 

My oldest friend from back in my primary school days texted me this morning to let me know that she is being induced to have her first baby this morning. SO EXCITED! BABBBBBIEEESS! Nothing cuter than a baby I tell you. I was thinking about my three best friends from when I was around 13-14 today. The one I just mentioned is of course having her first child, another is married and has two children and the last one is getting married next week! It would seem I am a bit behind haha? As I am 22 I am not worried! 

Next thing: OVER SHARERS. I've discovered throughout my life that I have a special quality. Apparently if there is someone within a two kilometer vicinity who loves to share every single detail of their life, I shine like a golden beacon and they come talk to me. At the work Christmas party this week I had a man tell me all about his two knee reconstructions, how his sister donated a kidney to him, how his Endone tablets make him feel like he can fly and that the last time he ate prawns he had gout so bad he couldn't walk for a week. Not only did I have no clue who he was, I don't even know how he started talking to me. WOW. But hey, that's nothing compared to the girl who decided to give me the full rundown on her psychotic episodes and a detailed history of her past drug use as well as dysfunctional family life the week before last. Hey chick- I DON'T KNOW YOU SO WHY ARE YOU TELLING ME THIS!

I'm sorry, my life has been so boring lately and I have nothing to blog about! Now excuse me while I continue to consume the contents of Christmas hampers with great enthusiasm. 


  1. Wishing your friend a quick and uneventful labour!
    And good job on submitting your assignment early - it is a great feeling, isn't it?
    I generally schedule assignments in my diary a week earlier than the actual due date so that I have the extra week if need be (nothing like tricking yourself into working faster!)

    Enjoy your weekend. X

  2. Wow, your 22 year old friends are miles ahead of my 22 year old friends! I had to laugh at the over sharing thing. Clearly you just come across as being such a kind, caring and willing to listen person :) xxx

  3. Handing assignments in is the best. I remember always leaving referencing till last and then not being able to find where I got what from. Did change that behaviour when I started writing my honours thesis though!

    The oversharers are hilarious :D


  5. That over sharing story made me remember of something that happened to me this summer. Me and my friend who was visiting me from Germany were just walking around town, searching for the nearest bakery, when one random old woman stopped me and started talking to me. She literally told me her whole life story, I'm not kidding! I didn't want to be rude so I just listened to her, but hello, where did she find ME?

  6. LANA DEL REY <3 I'm so in love with her music, her hair/face/body/voice *swoons*

  7. Man i wished that I was walking around carefree with no baby. Do you know how hard it is to navigate a busy shopping mall with a pram. Jealous!

    I am disappointed you are not yet engaged to be engaged!
