Oh. My. God.
I am NEVER drinking again.
Anyway I'm off to visit Rob tomorrow - I'll be there for a week with no access to the internet, so I won't be able to respond to any emails/livejournal comments etc. I'm sure you'll all live. Gotta go finish packing now - talk to you all when I get back xx.
A post about Nick, and why Nick is cool:
Hi Nick! Although we've only known each other for a relatively short amount of time, I feel like we've been friends for a lot longer. I find a kindred spirit in you - we think very much alike, and as a result I often find that you understand where I'm coming from in a way that few people are able to do. We have some fantastic conversations - you're intelligent and you give your opinions a lot of thought, which is something I really appreciate! I find you easy to talk to and always ready to lend a friendly ear, and I really enjoy just spending time with you. Our chats over coffee, losses on the pokies and silly laughs after too many drinks are some of my favourite memories - you've been a great friend to me and I feel lucky to have met you :). I hope we stay in touch for a long time to come.

1. Reply to this post if you want me to tell you how cool you are!
2. Watch my journal over the next few days for a post just about you and why you rock my socks.
3. Post these instructions in your journal and give your friends a much needed dose of love and adoration.
My brother has installed some sort of firewall that won't let me go on MSN. Grr. I'm attempting to rectify the problem, hopefully will be sorted soon.
I'm absolutely loving being home, I'm so glad I didn't decide to stay and do Masterclass over the winter. I'm heading up to NSW on Monday to visit Rob for a week, then I'm off to do some devil trapping in Freycinet the week after that. Apart from that, my only appointments are with my book in front of the fire, talk about a hard life... Hehe.
Cassie's 20th birthday party is tomorrow night - it's a costume party and so far we've stocked up on over $200 worth of alcohol, so it's shaping up to be a big night lol. My costume is hilarious, will post photos somewhere at some point.
Anyway that's all for now, make sure you all reply so I can tell you how much I love you :D
I'm waiting for my taxi to come and pick me up to take me to the airport. It gets here at 5:30 am. I so didn't need to set my alarm for 4:30, I'm ready way too early and now I have to sit around thinking about how tired I am lol.
Got next to no sleep last night - people were coming and going the whole time, waking me up in the process. It doesn't help that I didn't finish packing til 10:30, so I only had 6 hours to play with anyway.
But on the bright side, in just under 12 hours I'll be home!! YAY :D
Went to see Thirsty Merc play last night. They are absolutely, totally, completely amazing live - the lead singer is fantastic, and they're so good on their instruments that just listening to them play almost made me cry. They played all my favourite songs too, I was so totally in love by the end of the night :). I somehow managed to get first in line for signatures at the end of the show so they all signed my CD case - when I got to the lead singer I told him how amazing he was on the piano for their last song and how it almost made me cry, and he gave me a big hug!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not going to forget that for a very, very, VERY long time :D :D :D :D :D.
So I've pretty much had no sleep since my exams have finished - went to the pub all night the first night, went to see Frank Woodley (from Lano and Woodley) and co. perform The Complete Works of William Shakespeare the second night (absolutely HILARIOUS - my stomach muscles still haven't recovered from laughing!) and then went to Thirsty Merc last night. I've just had the best time, although I'm well and truly ready for an early night with my book tonight!
I'm home a week from today for a glorious seven weeks of holidays - can't wait to see you all. Hope everyone is keeping happy and healthy and that you're all coping with whatever study you have left. I'm thinking of you :)
Wow, talk about the BEST FEELING EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just had my last exam - this horrible, god-forsaken hell-hole of a semester is finally over, and I BEAT IT!!!! I'm so bouncing off the walls right now :D.
Off to the pub with me.....
I'm tired. I'm just so fucking tired.
I thought year 12 was the worst it was likely to get... I was so wrong.
I am fucking fed up with this god-forsaken semester. I FUCKING HATE IT. Fuck study, fuck exams, fuck second year. All I want is for my exams to be over and to be on the way home. And I'm not even one day into the study break... great.
I'm studying over 8 hours a day, just to cover all the material before I go into exams. Never mind time for revision to make sure I know it all properly. I hate study breaks more than anything on this planet, more than anything in the entire universe. I can't stand the thought of nine more days of this hell... I really just have to keep reminding myself of what I'll get out of this course in the end. It's all that's keeping me going.
EDIT: And another thing: I'm sick and fucking tired of Renee. I'm fed up to the back teeth with her constant whining, complaining and general bitchiness. This morning I got yelled at for being in the bathroom for too long (I'd been in there for 10 minutes...), cos apparently I was keeping her from starting her study cos she had to wait for me. I yelled back, cos I was just so fucking sick of her constantly picking at me, and a fight ensued. I then retired to my room to do my work, and what do you know - she hangs around outside for ages with Will and doesn't end up starting her study anyway til almost 45 minutes later! I fucking hate the bitch - everyone else is stressed too and we can all manage it without taking it out on other people. Learn some fucking self-control why don't you...
Rofl. I'm just studying one of our lectures on the gastrointestinal system, and one of the points on this current slide says, "A typical omnivore eats roots and leaves." When we were in the actual lecture, our lecturer read that point aloud and then goes, "...that sounds more like a typical man to me."
Silence in the lecture theatre for a couple of seconds as people processed it, then everyone just erupted into laughter.
I'm not explaining it to you if you don't get it.
Argh. I have less than 5 days to go til a major physiology exam, for which I'm madly trying to get all my study done, and Renee decides to hold a stupid Nutrimetics makeup party.
That means that all her stupid girly-girl friends are here, hanging around outside my room and being giggly and annoying. They're having a 'relaxation session' in the lounge room at the moment, hence the loud relaxation crap that's playing from Renee's room. I don't see how it's supposed to relax anyone - it's just repetitive, tinkly rubbish that is incredibly irritating and makes me want to bash my head against the wall...
A little consideration wouldn't go astray - just because she has no assessments left until her exams doesn't mean that other people don't have work to do.
