Hold tight folks, I’m heading to Bali

A friend of mine is getting married in Bali in May, and I'm invited. Originally I discussed the possibility with C, then after we split with my mum, then a friend. My friend can't make it for budget reasons, and I don't think I could last that long with Mum without getting frustrated (I love you Mum).

So I'm going it alone.

I am seriously scared by this prospect. It means the savings that I had finally gotten started are going to be gone. It means that I won't have anywhere there beside me in a foreign country to figure things out with. At the end of the day, I will by myself. [...]  read more

So it brought me to Nickleback, I shall hang my head in shame

Regular readers to my blog would know that I split with my ex, C, about a month ago. We had been having problems and arguing for quite a while, to the point that I moved out. We were going to try doing the whole “space” thing, it failed, we ended it for good.

Since then I've done the whole rebuilding thing. I live in a house with an amazing housemate, her kids (they're only there 4 days out of 7), and our two dogs. I have a place where I can come home to pure silence, where I can de-stress and recuperate before the stresses of the following day. It's fair to say I couldn't be any more thrilled with where I live. [...]  read more

Soundwave 2013

Sorry folks, been a little bit busy lately and haven't really made time to blog! The most recent reason for being busy was spending all day Saturday volunteering at a music festival, Soundwave. And I will be doing it all over again at Future Music festival this coming weekend, phew!

One of the things I love most about volunteering at these festivals is the opportunity to wind up in the most amazing places! A friend and I went down to help out at the front of the main stage handing out water to the crowd, and ended up staying there for most of the day. I think I sat down for about 20mins all day tops, and my legs sure felt it the next day. It's Monday morning now, and they're still sore (didn't stop me from going to training this morning though). [...]  read more

Dinner, TV, bed: my Friday night

It's been a big week for me. I spent every night of this week out and about at night after work, from collecting the last of my things from C's place to hanging out with mates. Needless to say tonight I'm super keen to just sit on the couch, watch TV and indulge in a bit of reading.

I've cooked my dinner already, whipping up a bit of spaghetti. I'm still adjusting to cooking for one, but the bonus is how much leftover food I have. Hello frozen meals!!

Tomorrow I'm visiting the hairdresser (we had to move my appointment forward by a number of weeks due to my schedule being booked up for the next few weeks) and also a big movie marathon at a friend's house. I can't wait! It's also one of my 52 in 52 items too, speaking of which it needs updating to remove the ones C and I were meant to do together. [...]  read more

Heyyyy…I’m 29 and had an awesome weekend

So today begins the last year of my 20's, as I have now hit the ripe old age of 29. Just in time to get my life sorted for the 30's; there's no better time than now!

Courtesy of my amazing friends and family, I had an absolute cracker of a weekend. It began Friday night when a friend and I headed down to the local stadium to watch the QLD Reds take on the chiefs, which they unfortunately lost. However it did mean that I met my new favourite player, only for the extremely shallow reason that he is gorgeous. Other than that I don't really follow Rugby Union. [...]  read more
