I've dropped Education. I'm contemplating culinary arts. I'm a film major. I'm going to China at the end of the month. That's all so far.

This year's to do list. Not resolutions. To Do List:

  • Make one massive epiphany. The kind that occurs near the end of an episode of House or crime solving shows where one unrelated conversation mentions an insignificant detail which happens to trigger the memory or idea of a missing clue that solves the mystery disease/murder. Except instead of all of that it will be about my life in some way (friends, boys, family, uni, jobs)
  • Have one proper holiday with friends. I'm serious, guys. At this point in friendship it's kind of weird we've never organised a big get-away-together. We always say that we'll go Melbourne or Gold Coast or even Wagga but never follow through. I don't care about where we go. As long as there is substantial planning, a journey we have to take towards destination that lasts more than an hour, bickering and jokes and music and junk snacks on said journey and hell of a lot of fun.
  • Fucking try this year, Courtney. At most, try in terms of uni work.
  • Have at least half a boyfriend by the end of the year. By "half a boyfriend", I mean a guy who I am interested in romantically and who also reciprocates this. Half a boyfriend means that we don't go to parties together or have joint birthday gifts for his friend because I'm awkwardly going to his friend's birthday party as a plus one but I don't know him well enough to buy him a present and so I halfsies scab of my guy to look half decent and to impress his friends. Full boyfriends do that shit. Half boyfriend means shy kisses, "hanging out" alone with each other, hving insulting yet endearing nicknames for each other and maybe even an inside joke or two. Interest is established and is being tested. That kind of thing. I guess. Doesn't have to be exactly like that, but you know what I mean.
  • Have at least one part time job whether at woolies or a different establishment.
  • Exercise. Ok the thing with this is that I know I'm a lazy fuck. So by exercise I mean that I will do at least one full day of something every.....month? Or maybe take up an extracurricular thing. Like pole or silks.
  • More effort with friends. More effort to communicate. More effort to spend time with each other. More time to be better friends. It's not hard. It shouldn't be.
  • Art more. Write more.


I'm wearing matching Superman tank top and underwear to sleep tonight. If that is not a great start to 2015, then I don't know what the fuck is.

Things that happened in 2014

Not in chronological order because who the fuck remembers shit that well?
  • I took the semester off from uni to figure out what I wanted to do. 
  • Got a job at woolies as Deli and Longlife girl. Made some friends.
  • 30 Seconds to Mars with Milly and we bumped into Aislinn. Jared Leto wore an animal onsie
  • Bastille birthday concert for Milly where I forgot to take my merch shirt with me 'cause I'm an idiot
  • Went to Queensland for a day with Mila for her birthday and spent it at Movieworld. I still hate rollercoasters, Queensland is a whole different world and bought a shitload of stuff.
  • Ellie Goulding with Sammy and Dru. She is a goddess and her supporting act was The Broods. I would later download The Broods EP that night at home.
  • Supanova where went yet again had a Hasselhoff-like experience with this guy who was on the Hobbit, Arrow and is from New Zealand. I yet again bought shitloads of stuff.
  • When going to drop Fine Arts I saw that I could apply for Arts/Education (secondary). Got accepted for Sem 2 and specialised in English.
  • I fucking hated it. The education. Not the English. 
  • I found out a friend in the deli transferred to Secondary as well and hated it almost as much as I did. We bonded over it. I then found out she had a tumblr and loves Marvel and other various fandoms. We bonded even more over that. 
  • Went to Star City Buffet for my birthday with my lovely friends and got lots and lot and lots of presents. 
  • Mila went fucking nuts for my birthday. Like. Holy shit. I love her so much. Not just because of the present thing of course. But like. GURRLLLLL. WHAT.
  • As part of the presents thing she bought us tickets to The Broods.
  • Cirque Du Soleil. With Milly. It was bat-shit insane and incredible. 
  • WICKED with Aislinn and Laura. I almost forgot how much I loved it. Obsessed.
  • So many TV shows and movies. So, so , many. How to Get Away With Murder. Once Upon a Time, American Horror Story, Newsroom, The 100, Brooklyn 99, Broad City, Agents of SHIELD, Interstellar, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America The Winter Soldier, Mockingjay Part 1, Gone Girl, What Maisie Knew, Austenland, The Lego Movie.
