10/9 Yes, I did have a lot of me time this past two weeks. Sleeping in, working out, basically choosing my pace. There’s been a huge change in the weather, we had a streak of sunny, warm weather than bam… back to cloudy, cold weather. But I’m glad Spring has finally fallen upon us! Clothes are now a hybrid of summer and Autumn wear. 2 and a bit more months left till I’m outta Sydney!!

13/9 Professional development or really anything that can up-skill you, is super vital. Whether it be improving your professional or personal life. I just enrolled myself into a copyediting and proofreading course, all payed out right, so I can improve my writing before it’s published. I find so much fault when I get assignments back, in terms of grammar and consistently in my formats. It’s a basic skill, that often gets overlooked when you’re not an English or writing major student. Well for me that is. Glad I’ve got a supportive partner throughout all this. Puts a tonne of pressure though to do well, if your partner is the one financially backing you up, but at the same time it pushes you to complete it.

15/9 Mixed feelings with today, don’t know whether it was alright giving away my shift today. But at the same time, I got to enjoy the sun, relax a bit and work on my uni stuff. Got home pretty late last night anyways, so it was alright. Anyways, don’t know if you’ve noticed but the drill rap scene in Australia is really picking up. The rappers are getting better and better with each upload. It’s a bit hard to comprehend, well for me anyways, but it’s worth the listen.

16/9 Tried waking up early today, but still woke up at 8am and didn’t get out of bed till 9am. Though on the upside, I slept before 12am! Yay for improvement. Anyways, going to cook lunch now and hopefully tackle more on my to-do list today. I’ve got a big clean tomorrow, before E’s parents arrive.

1/7 It has been a loooong time! I honestly don’t know what to write right now. Hopefully I can get into reviewing once again! Anyways, just came back from volunteering at a museum, which I absolutely enjoy right now. Time flies by so quickly, though really cold, I feel like I am further expanding my knowledge and skills.

2/7 Eating my avocado right now, wishing I didn’t have this stomach pain.

15/4 Cannot take a person seriously, if they are still currently cheating on their supposed “love”. His/her partner is manipulated into the reality he/she is creating. If you decide to give ‘advice’ be sure to check yourself and don’t try to fix another person’s relationship. It is disgusting that you would go that far and assume that since a person is not revealing, say their bank account, it makes them suspicious? Like you and everyone else in the world, there are just somethings an individual would like to keep for themselves. What a mentality to have ffs. If it works for a couple then go-ahead, but bear in mind its not a pre-requsite in a relationship and/or marriage. Suspicious, you liar.

I hope you feel awesome that you gave “advice” and tried to “help” your friend out. Those slimy comforting words of assuring him/her of what they are feeling is alright and his/her partner is the problem here.

MIND YOUR OWN GODDAMN BUSINESS it’s funny when you don’t communicate with them anymore, that’s when they start assuming your life, intentions, personality, etc. I know myself better than you do. Mind you, I know that disgusting side of yours and your partner doesn’t. Oh wait, maybe they do know?

16/3 I have all these books I’d love to start reading, but I have had no time to dive into them. There’s this novel that I bought months ago and it is still packaged in a brown bag, up on my shelf. Others are left with bookmarks, not even half way through the book. I guess I haven’t found a compelling story in a while, that can reignite my passion to start reading again. I remember reading the Harry Potter series and I couldn’t put the books down, one after the other and sometimes re-reading them.

18/3 A cockroach was dizzy trying to scramble away yesterday, in my room, when I spotted it. When I did, I naturally screamed and ran to my mum to deal with it. But first got my younger brother to bring my laptop out of my room and into the dinning room so I can continue my work. Fortunately, my mum brought the large monstrous thing outdoors and till now I am getting those uncomfortable goosebumps.

19/3 Many things on my plate.

8/3 Is it me, or there’s so many talks now about plastic surgery? To be honest I have thought about it, but watching and reading the recovery period even though the results are great, always puts me off. Plus the large amount of money needed… Work was great, used a lot more of my mentality to come up with a procedure. Definitely going way above my pay but it’s the experience I am gunning for. Through this experience, it highlighted the need for upper management support to implement things. Without that vital support, recommendations and ideas can never be pushed to reality.

10/3 Need to move out, asap. This current location is not homely at all, always on edge and too much rules. Its always comfortable when you have a space that is welcoming. Be it the lighting, colours, ambience, food, furniture, sound and scent.

12/3 Busy busy once again. I think I need to calm down with the applications  and really think where I want to go. I have an interview this coming Friday and I hope I get pointed or given advice about where I could be going. There’s so many positions out there, I am the type of person that tries to be the jack of all trades, when really one should be specialising. Well that’s what I think anyways.

1/3 March! Sydney is getting cooler and gloomy looking, which brings the unwelcome flu and cold season. I think I had my dose just two days ago and passed it onto E. He now is sniffling his way through the day, he and I are both drinking manuka and honey tea. But I do love the colder season, cause it means I can pile up clothing and be snuggly comfortable at work. That’s if they don’t put the heater on. You know what anime I am obsessed about, even if the story line is somewhat predictable, is Seven Deadly Sins. Which you now can watch on Netflix.

3/3 I got my printer/scanner up and running yay! I know I can definitely print from work, but that means I can only print when I’m at work. It just feels great my own room is coming together, still under construction, but its becoming an ideal place for study. E’s room came together great, there’s a few things I’d like to add but I think I should be focusing on my own room for now. I removed some old wall hangings and thinking of adding two white shelves. I’d like to paint the walls white, but that’s a large task. Maybe after my contract ends or after the semester is over.

4/3 100% getting hooked to the anime that Netflix holds. Almost done with Seven Deadly Sins and now starting B: The Beginning. Netflix is seriously stepping up its anime collection! I find it hard sometime to find online streaming sites for anime, without any ads popping up and unnecessary membership sign-ups.

23/2 During days off, my body wakes up when I don’t want it to wake up and during the days I have work, it wakes up like its still on a break. Frustrating. Anyways, had a massive burger brunch today after finally getting some life back to my lashes at Lady Lash. The lash technicians here are amazing as well as their services! The quality of the lashes are top notch, so the money you spend is worth while.
