let's catch up.

So I only just realised that there was a good 6 or 7 month gap in my blogposts, and a lot can happen in that amount of time, and a lot did. Here is a short summary of a few things that happened:
  • I turned 17-years-old, and celebrated at New Farm Park with friends, family, tree-climbing and macaroons.
  • I began dating a dashing young man.
  • I had the most fun and best big camp ever with all my mates.
  • I saw my artwork in the Powerhouse.
  • We sold our house at Camp Hill, and moved two streets down into a rental, which I dislike (I miss my old house, and so does our dog...)
  • I finished QCS, and all high school exams and assignments.
  • I had my formal.
  • I went to Mungindi on a Storm Co trip.
  • I graduated High School.
  • I got a valuable piece of paper from the QUT Vice-Chancellor.
  • I got my hair cut.
  • I started using a film camera.
  • I've had more time for craft.
  • I made a lemon meringue pie completely from scratch.
  • I went to Fiji.
  • I went to San Diego, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
  • We started building a house on our block at Coorparoo.
  • I started studying Architecture.
  • I learnt what it's like to be lonely in a big place.
  • I was a counsellor at Junior Camp, and it was one of the most exhausting, but greatest weeks of my life.
  • I had to say goodbye to some of my dearest friends as they moved down south, but grew closer to other friends.
  • I saw Diana Krall, Melody Gardot and Madeleine Peyroux live.
  • My Mother and Aunties went to Paris.
  • I got a Suzani quilt as a very EARLY birthday present, haha.
  • My friend Lauren and I started organising a friday night youth program.
  • I went on a design camp.
  • A close family friend passed away.
  • I experienced the awesomeness of a bonfire.
  • I conquered my first (extremely scary!) semester of university.
  • I learnt that life is what you make it.
  • I learnt that change, though not always welcomed, is both necessary and inevitable.
  • I learnt that God is the one thing that remains present, constant and unchanged.
