currently i am FED UP with this beyond stupid 'aboriginal spirituality' assignment for study of religion...it's a flogging speech. can you believe it? everytime i sit down to work on it, i get a headache & want to go to bed. but instead of succumbing to that desire once again, i decided to visit my olive tree.
well, as much as i dislike assignments & exams, i have actually always loved exam week for some strange reason. possibly because it means i only have to go to school for specific time slots; when it is absolutely necessary. which is great. i did my english presentation on the 'representation of women in our media.' so thank goodness that is out of the way. i'm looking forward to watching packed to the rafters tonight.
i've been pretty nostalgic & sentimental about finishing school lately... it's really quite...daunting & sad. but i'm trying to just enjoy what little time i have left, rather than being all debbie-downer about it all being over. silly me. i've really missed blogging, just writing down random trivial little thoughts. my noggin is a random one.
i'm currently listening to diana krall. *sigh* she is wonderful. AND, she is coming to concert next year in march! hoorah! so, there's a ticket with my name on it that shall be regarded as one of my christmas presents. you know what else is on my wishlist and has been for MONTHS now? check out this baby, well i suppose it's really a mother, of a package from lomography.com:
heck to the yes! i've also been eyeing off a few of their other cameras :) but the diana mini or F+ is the first on my list.
now to conclude my post (that i sincerely wish could be longer, but i must get back to aboriginal spirituality. grr) these are 10 things i am thankful for:
1. brooke fraser's music and her amaaaazing and inspiring website/blog.
2. coffee & strawberry shortcake for morning tea. my sustenance for the day.
3. books. books. books. & rainy days where you don't need to feel guilty for cosy-ing up in bed all day.
4. frankie & peppermint mag.
5. the organic markets & their breakfast pizzas.
6. friday nights, tealight candles, pianos & acoustic guitars.
7. my beyond-marvelous fam bam & small group sisters.
9. banana scrabble.
10. the art of blogging.
have a splendid afternoon. unfortunately, i bet yours will be better than mine :( simply because you don't need to analyse aboriginal rites of passage and rock paintings.

so this week, a whole group of music and drama students went to go and see Cats the musical! Now, usually i would not call myself a fan of cats at all...sorry to all the cat lovers, but i don't see anything special! butttt the musical was simply amazing..for lack of a better word. the acrobats and the singing was magical!
anyhoo. it is dinner time and i am starving hungry! yay for gourmet pizzas and candles on friday nights :)
ciao for now xx

the second day we were there, dad woke us up, much to our dismay, early in the morning so that we could get ready for disneyland! i think i slept most of the way there. we hired this huge yank tank, a toyota something-or-other that we don't have down in Oz because it probably wouldn't fit on the road! and dad had to learn to drive on the wrong side of the road, whilst sitting on the wrong side of the car.
We also hired bikes and rode along Santa Monica beach.
the shop was just gorgeous:
the yellow school buses were ultra cool :-)
as were the newspaper dispensers!
We ate at the coolest diner while we were in SF; called Lori's diner. it had an old blue mustang, black and white tiled floors, piccies of Marilyn and Audrey, red seating booths and the best choc malt milkshakes in town. it was so cool :-) here's a picture of it, courtesy of google images:
i also bought my formal fabric in SF :-) which was so very exciting! i can't wait til mum starts making it!
Well basically that is a very short summary of my trip :-) i hope you enjoyed. xo

i will have to buy a lot of chewing gum before the flight...and maybe some panadol considering the severe ear pain i suffer on flights :( it was pretty bad on our year 12 sydney trip flight...i was deaf for a few hours after the flight...
on a brighter note! on our agenda is disneyland, a dodgers baseball game, legoland, beaching it, and shopping of course! i cannot wait :) i will miss all my lovely friends while i am away, but i have promised to bring each of them something back :)
well i do believe it is bye for now. promise to post details of the trip when i get back in two weeks! adieu lovelies! oxo
