Self Portrait in Three Colours

Archive for October 2009

Went for a kick-ass walk this afternoon, made me feel much better than I had been before I left. I walked for an hour and 40 minutes, and had MuggleCast to keep me company along the way. Still way backdated with episodes which is awesome because I can listen to a few at a time. Honestly, and I know it sounds silly, but they’re keeping me sane at the moment. They provide conversation to take my mind off things and they make me laugh. Which is what I need right now. 🙂



So I said yesterday was going to be my bumming day, but it ended up not being so much. Instead, we went to Strathewen with Aaron’s sister Clare. It was the perfect day for it, too. There was not a cloud in the sky all day and the temperature was a comfortable 21 degrees (although it felt warmer when we were down there).


I am feeling just so, so lame.

Aaron and I didn’t sleep last night. And I mean that almost literally, we got about three hours sleep the entire night, and that was at around 4am. I think a contributing factor is that we had a sleep for like an hour at 6pm (we were just so, so tired after our 7:30am start at school) but we also had a heap on our minds. It was stressing us out for a few hours, until we finally decided bugger it, we’ll just stay up until we feel like sleeping and we can organize our teaching accordingly the next day. We watched Seinfeld for a few hours and talked and cuddled, it ended up being pretty nice surprisingly. But I woke up at 7:30 with the worst sore throat and just feeling really drained, really sore eyes.


Warning: This reads more as a fiction story than anything else – you will have to forgive me because that’s what it looks and feels like in my head, and so thats how the words came out on paper the screen. I promise I won’t always be this dramatic 🙂

If you had showed me my life at this point two and a half years ago, I wouldn’t have believed you for a second, even if you had it in play-by-play mode. I would have asked where you’d found identical twins for myself and all my family because my brain simply would not have computed the fact that all this could actually be real. It’s not where I really saw my life headed and yet, here I am today and I can still hardly believe it.


I know this blog is predominantly for me and my daily musings and so I shouldn’t care about page views or silly things like that…..

But seeing 2 hits on my blog really excited me tonight 😀


Okay, I’ll admit it, although you’ll think I’m crazy, most likely.

I really, truly, with a fiery, fiery passion, hate going out.

And when I say “going out” I am referring to the sort of goings that people attend to on a Saturday night, in the city, with loud and terrible music, crowded bars, shady lighting, sleazy guys – I can’t stand it. And sometimes I think I must just not be understanding something correctly,  because basically everyone my age that I have ever known in my life makes out as if it’s a weekly experience that just cannot be lived without.


Okay so this great – I just got wordpress for my iPod so now I can write and write to my hearts content wherever I am (providing I have Internet connection lol).
Aaron and I are at his mum’s place right now. We just had a fantastic pancake breakfast made by Aaron himself, with golden syrup, hot berries, lemons, sugar… Yum 🙂 and then we set about booking flights to Tassie for Christmas to stay with Aaron’s sister Jess. It feels a bit strange considering it will be my first Christmas away from my family but I feel so comfortable with Aaron’s family that it won’t be a big deal really. Plus we’re flying out on Christmas eve so we’ll have plenty of time to spend with my family and grandparents before going. So I’m pretty excited!
I think we’re leaving soon to take Harley the dog for a walk. Hope to get a good amount of steps up today, I need 10000 steps today to maintain my average for the week! Haha, I’m a bit of a dork.
