Ok, what I wanted

So the real reason why I've come back from the blogger graves, is because I just wanted to write a list of things I want to buy as soon as disposable income becomes a thing that exists in my life again:

  • Books. So many books. I want them all. Now. 
  • The Grisha trilogy
  • Sarah J Maas series
  • The Raven Cycle
  • Vampire Academy series
  • The Infernal Devices series (I've got the Mortal Instruments but apparently you need to read Infernal first so that you don't spoil it when you reach the last Mortal book)
  • The Lunar Chronicles
  • Daughter of Smoke and Bone (that of which I completely loved the first book of)
  • Percy Jackson/The Olympian's series

  • Clothes
  • All the clothes
  • Bomb ass dresses to wear to parties and a certain wedding
  • New shirts. 
  • JEANS. Oh god. The need for new awesome jeans is great. 
  • Underwear. Especially bras. At this point I'm barely surviving on a rotation of 2-3 bras. Yes 2-3 because I have a third one but it is MISSING. 
  • Lush products. I have only just realised the importance of skin care and smelling edible to lure desired people.

  • Fuck me, they are expensive. 
  • Michelle gave me her Polaroid 636 Close Up.
  • The cheapest film is still very expensive for 8 frames per pack. It goes form $2-4$ per frame depending what kind you buy, and how and where you buy it. 
  • Related note: to develop old film I have found. Who the fuck knows if they actually worked though. It's so pricey to develop one roll of film, let alone about 10.

  • And maybe a new laptop. This one is 3 years old now and has had it's fair share of shitty happenings. 

Posts like these kind of make me hope no one reads my shit still after all these years

  • Before I left for Japan (actually after we left Sydney we had a change over in Cairns and this occurred then) I messaged Gino on Facebook. Basically I just wrote about how I liked him and wasn't sure if he liked me back but I'm totally cool if he does or doesn't and I hope we proceed after I get back.

    I did this on purpose with the stupid thought that I wouldn't be able to see his reply until I got back because I thought wi-fi wouldn't be very accessible once we got to Japan.

    It was. It very much was. He messaged me back on the first night in Osaka.

    We are now together but...not TOGETHERRRRRRR if that makes sense? We hang out, little displays of affection, some online talking.

  • It's weird because I realised I've never done this properly (I don't think). With Billy it was a simple, "I like you, let's date" and then it happened until it stopped.
  • With Matt it was a whole fucking whirlwind of complicated and weird that gradually just went from friends -> friends??? -> definitely more than friends -> not even friends -> cordial friends -> holy shit Matt is getting married at the end of the year. 
  • With Gino, it's new and different. Especially because of how long we've known each other and just the situations we are in.
  • I really don't mean to compare the guys because each guy and situation is so different and unique. I'm just saying that I have no idea what I'm doing when I'm around him and he makes me feel so certain yet so, very uncertain about a lot of things.

  • Gino has a motorcycle! Like holy shit, he rides around in the gear and talks about the torque and his youtube is filled with motorcycle videos. It's stupidly attractive. Especially because of how excited and happy he gets about it.
  • Still waiting for the first kiss.


So I started this blog in 2007. It is now 2016.

What a fucking crazy 9 years.

I haven't blogged much AT ALL lately. I apologise for that. I never know why I apologise for not updating a never read blog. Oh well.

So it is officially April and I just wanted to rant? Update? Just type?

So first thing is first: The Update

  • 13 Dec 2015 - 1 Jan 2016: I went to Japan with Mila! It was fucking amazing. I've always wanted to go to Japan ever since my anime manga phase in year 6. I wanted to go to the land of Sailor Moon, sushi, and magic. Geisha's, tradition, and the future. It was more than I could have ever hoped for. Osaka -> Kyoto -> Fuji -> Tokyo. All were brilliant in their own ways. I might do another post just solely focussed on this with photos and whatnot.
  • Mid-January: I went camping! Royal National Park with Jack, Mina, Dom, Chris, Gino, Laura, Mila and Sharon. We carried a 9 person tent up a fucking mountain (More like a small hill with shitty shitty steps) in the fucking rain and mud. It was amazing. Apart from when half the tent collapsed half an hour after we set up and sat inside. There was gale force winds and rains the whole first day and night. Gino got super sick and threw up at least 3 times in the middle of the night and only me, Jack and Dom were the last ones standing on the second day. As soon as the others had left, the sun came out and never left. We roasted marshmallows and made pasta and smoked cigars and drank fucking whiskey. (Dom and Jack smoked cigars, I drank half the amount of whiskey poured for me.)
  • February 6 - 21: America, here I come! I went with my parents and grandma for my great aunt's 91st birthday and Chinese New Year. Spent one week in Hawaii and then one week in San Francisco. Although it was fun and great to meet everyone (especially for the first time at a birthday event AND Chinese New Year where I got shitloads of American red envelopes), I didn't get to really do fun touristy stuff while over there because of all the family. They took us to temples, Chinese restaurants (I had about one or two non-Chinese meals), and family homes. I just wanted more non-family stuff? Does that make me a shitty person? Anyways I got one day in San Fran to literally go off by myself and it was incredible. Another post for another time.
  • Feb - present time: MICHELLE MOVED OUT! Holy shit. It actually happened. Sam moved into our old room and I took hers. I painted my walls teal, got my own bed and a shitton of shelves to almost adequately hold all my books. I'm actually super proud about it. Mila saw it and said she's never seen anything so incredibly personalised. Everything about this room is just so "me"
  • Present - future plans: Well I've gotten summoned for jury duty so we'll see how that goes. A few 21st coming up. A baptism because, holy shit, real life adult stuff is happening and I'm watching a whole new generation of family grow before my eyes.
  • Not at uni (suspended) and unemployed (the jury summons was originally in March so I was hoping to see if I needed to apply for a job or not by then. The summons were then delayed to this month and so I'll now know by next week)
  • I'm reading again! And drawing again! They actually interlock because after I read something I try to draw out certain characters or moments.
Next few posts will probably be sporadic, more elaboration on bigger events, random, and, as usual, unread.
