Studying is over rated. I've reached that point that most students face - I don't want to go on anymore. I really just don't. I feel drained and tired and distracted. I feel like a crappy friend and a crappier daughter/sister.

I'm sure I'll push past this, but right now, I long for free time and a brain that feels...

i know how that is, I have been there and I was there for far longer then you will be, just push on and soon you will be free!

cleverthings:

I think that happens all the way through, in waves. It's almost harder when you're doing just two subjects than when you're overloaded with 6 like you were last semester, because you get time to breathe in between and are able to remember what it was like when you WEREN'T a studying monster.

I am thinking about studying something again, but part of me is terrified. I see Mr G back at uni with one year to go (and two very hectic weeks that he's buried in right now) and it freaks me out that he is so busy all the time.

And I can't really do anything at the moment because I leave here in Feb/Mar next year.

I'm so frustrated because I told my UK friend that I was coming in Feb/Mar and she has known that for a year, yet she decided to schedule her wedding in APRIL in BRISBANE. What the fuck? I'm going to have to get some sort of return ticket and then a single ticket so I can be at it. And that means that I can't make another friend's wedding in Brisbane in June which I could have got to otherwise - stupid money. Why couldn't she have it in the UK where she and her fiance actually live? Or at least later in the year so that there was a useful gap between my arriving in London and the wedding. *headdesk* My other O/S friend isn't going to the Australia one, she's just going to a party that my friend is having back in Newcastle a couple of months' later, but that makes me feel awful. I've realised I don't know if I'll ever be a bridesmaid at a wedding that isn't my Mum's or my step-dad's sister's. LE SIGH. I always dreamed I'd be a bridesmaid to my UK friend and my Israel friend, and the latter I'm not (as her wedding was this year and then again in Dec) and the former I guess I'm not because she didn't even work out whether I could come before locking in the date in Brisbane. I am so different in how I do big decision stuff like that. I would plan everything around who can come, not anything else. That's what makes a wedding. Strange, people are so different.

I haven't heard ANYTHING about how study is actually going for you, and I only found out about how sick you were from SG (which I only log onto every two months or so) so that just shows how much we need to talk. There must be talking, and soon.

I hope you are better and that things are improving and that you've got your second study wind and are beating the hell out of everything - in a very positive way. kiss

I just witnessed Hillary Duff murder one of my favourite songs and now, I'm watching Twisted Sister rape it.

And the original:


One year my Dad purchased me an audio cassette as a birthday gift. I knew the minute I unwrapped it that he had gone to the shop and selected it for me himself. Instead of allowing Mom to purchase all the gifts...

jogu:

how is miss kye ooo aaa

bloc party... still got plans to?

Edit: sorry i just realised you didn't start that thread in sgau but anyway are you going?

jogu:

thanks sweet pea
and no it was just something that kinda popped into my head one day
imagine your lifespan was ten seconds long; it would not be
a satisfying experience in our terms because we would b deprived of
the trials of life ie. learning, meeting people, travelling, getting a tattoo, the act of making love, for example.
we would want our lives to last more than that simply because we have so much to do.

at the same time i look at my small footprint and the wider world
there are so many people out there
its humbling to think your just a small pin in the cog on the wheel of some giant machine
doing god knows what
sometimes the world seems to stand still when i count to ten is all

VNV Nation was amazing. Pictures to come.

I'm sitting in a lounge room in Perth, with two of my favourite people sitting on the couch beside me playing Mario Kart.
They're talking (semi-drunk) shit and cheering loudly. They're making me smile.

Post a day in Rockingham, lunch at the Swinging Pig, my first Guinness Pie, a train trip, a bus ride, drinks...

For serious. Being boring is like the cardinal sin of movie making. That goes double if it's a comedy.

punchdrunkblake:

Where oh where did you happen by a Choke screening? Film festival?

I saw it at the SIFF a few months ago. The book isn't the movie and the movie isn't the book. The film really worked for me. Rockwell fucking owns it. I could pick holes in it if I tried but I don't really want to. Nice use of Radiohead at the end, too.

Depends when you're visiting in October. Throw me some dates and I'll let you know. I'm supposed to be going to Mexico sometime after the 13th. We'll see.

I like Death Cab For Cutie, didn't get tickets to their gig though. Bit of a shame but I'm stashing money for margaritas and weird, arcane ouija boards.

A glimpse into my musical tastes; Dillinger Escape Plan, Mars Volta, Tool, King Crimson, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Cog, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, John Coltrane, Rollins Band, Massive Attack, Omar Rodriguez Lopez, Meshuggah, Keziah Jones, Outkast, Led Zeppelin, Pirate, Buddy Rich, Terrapin, Black Sabbath, The Police, Melvins, Mastodon, Isis. Plus lots of soundtracks, one off songs that are cheesy as fuck and really poppy but I love anyway and plenty of spoken word and stand up comedy albums. See; Patton Oswalt, Eugene Mirman, David Cross and compositions by Ennio Morricone, Angelo Badalamenti and a bunch of guys who do the music for Japanese anime but whose names I can't pronounce, let alone spell.

Perspective

She called and said there was a scarecrow on the property.

Brushed it off as kids being kids, pulling pranks, post Friday night fun.

Only, it was a body.

He'd hung himself.

Police said that he was twenty-five.

All of a sudden, other things seem so much smaller than the ones he must have faced before those final moments on a vacant block...

Q: What do you get when you have a girl that found a car she loves, over five hours away and a sense of adventure?
A: An Overnight Road trip!


I've loved the design of the little car for years. Whenever I see one on the road or in a car park, I gaze longingly and get a little excited. It has a big...

missellie:

We all know how I feel about throwing oneself in the deep end. Hurray! Go Team Kye! So, what is she? Do we get photos of your new love interest?

Speaking of which...



I'll be in Melbourne for a flying visit from the 7th-10th of August for my dear friend's birthday, back safely in Perth before your arrival. I will write much more extensively soon, work-time is creeping up and I should really shower and ready myself. I hope all stitches and sadness are healed up good and proper. Speak soon. Look after yourself until then, we need you in one piece.

That sounds brilliant! Good luck!

Laugh or cry.

The human body is an amazing thing. I pissed mine of thoroughly a few weekends ago. My scars are healing very well, I feel fine.

Except my abdomen has swollen eighteen centimeters. I have an internal infection.

I'm mostly fascinated by it. It hurts like hell. My skin is taut and it feels like I'm about to give birth to...

I want to build a makeshift cave from doonas and pillows and hide in my fortress until the world stops spinning so darn quickly.

I miss making cubby houses in the back room, hiding away from the world in my own little reality with my books, some food, a loyal pet and someone else to babble with in our own made-up secret language.

It's...

I use to do that all the time when I was a kid.

Well all you need to do is find some one to babble with, if we lived near one another I would so do that with you.

Making art, or kissing some pretty girl, god it has been so long since I kissed a girl.

I'd rather have work to go to.

I have keys.

I'm so nervous and excited all at once.

It's been so fucking long.... Like, almost a decade.

I've been out of town for the past week so I'm sorry if I have missed anything important, if I did you can tell me what I missed.

Are they keys for your first new place by yourself?

I miss you
