Last night a group of us from uni headed out to celebrate the handing in of all our assignments. It’s crunch time now, just exams to go and I’m out into the big, wide world! Scary much? YES.
I failed to remember that wine is a killer on a big night out and consumed too many glasses of it. Yick. Don’t feel so flash today…
I was supposed to be heading out sailing this afternoon with the guys from the yacht club next door, thank goodness it was cancelled due to crap weather. I think I’d have a high chance of falling overboard today, as it would be my first time and all…
Apparently I need to update this blog more often, as more and more people offline are reading it and require more regular updates. The pressure! What if life is seriously dull? Will you be happy with me talking about every calorie I ate for the day? Or maybe how many hot men I checked out? Or how many hours I wasted on facebook while I should have been working or studying for exams? Or my bowel movements?
Because seriously, I know that kind of content will bring many followers.
It sure is. It’s heaven. Two weeks of heaven. I was feeling the need of a break in that last week. It was INTENSE. It has now been two weeks since I uploaded my post-it wall-of-doom photo. We are four down. YUS.
It kind of spooks me that those six remaining post-its (and three exams) are all I have left of my university career (shush, it so is a career – it’s a full time job!) but it also excites me.
These holidays are going to be jam-packed with fun, relaxation and partying! Oh, and a teeny, tiny bit of assignments and study. The next two weekends are already booked in; weekend one (28-30 Aug) is a girls trip of four three to the snow, and weekend two (4-6 Sept) is a co-ed road trip of seven to Dargaville for Bach Weekend: Round 2. I am seriously in the mood for both!
Tonight it’s my sister, Allie’s, birthday drinks. So we’re all getting the dresses and heels on and hitting the town for a night of dancing!
As previously mentioned life is very dull at the moment. I’m not blaming anything or anyone. It just is. Studying for exams is a sure fun-killer though, so that’s what I’ll blame. It’s also the catalyst for having no money, you can’t work when you have to study. So, OK, I change my mind. It’s all the exam study’s fault. But sadly it has to be done or that last few months would have been a waste of time.
I bumped into a close friend of mine from High School yesterday. She’s over here visiting from California (she got a scholarship to attend Berkley University) during her summer holidays. I was out exercising and she was walking home from lunch out. Auckland is so damn small. That was the second time in two weeks I’ve bumped into her randomly. lol. I’m going to go out exercising this arvo, will probably see her again.
A side note: just wondering why so many of the men in Auckland are so damn immature? We stood on the side of the road for probably 30-40 minutes talking and approx. 8-10 guys in cars thought they’d toot and yell out their windows. Ahem. Why? I really don’t know. Maybe they felt special yelling at two girls? Like we were all; *swoon* he’s so awesome he can yell out the car window. I don’t know. Maybe they really loved my sexy work-out gear? Hah.
So anyway, I was talking to her about where she has traveled in the States. I said I really wanted to go to Vegas, like that is one state I have to visit. And I was so thrilled when she said she had an amazing time there. She also recommended I visit Utah. I had previously had a brief thought to visit Utah, but then put it on the maybe list. But after she described the snowy mountains that surround Utah in Winter, she has pushed it to my definite list. It’s sounds absolutely beautiful!
I just can’t wait to let loose and have some fun! I’m tired of the day-to-day life I’m living right now. People who know me, know I’m not a big party/drinking girl. That’s just not me. But right now, at this moment I wish I could be drinking, dancing and thinking of nothing but where in London or Vegas I am going to visit the next day.
I think I need the adventure before I could settle into a 9-5 job. Paying bills, cooking every night. Screw that. I’ll have that for the next 50 years.
I think it’s all the accounting study that has gone to my head. Thank God I have already worked as an accountant or I think I would have already pulled out of the degree. The job is far more interesting and exciting than the study.
I just want to get out and LIVE!
