Crap day at work today, not surprisingly. You know how some days you just KNOW that something is going to go wrong? That’s how I felt this morning.

Should finally find out tomorrow if I’ve gotten into my course or not.

Did my first bit of Christmas shopping today. Getting in extremely early, I know, but I’m usually a last minute girl when it comes to Christmas presents and this year I have extremely limited funds so I’ve decided to pick up bits and pieces where I can over the next few months…super organized this year!

The guy took me or for a fancy dinner at a winery the other week. They had multiple knives and forks! A first for me (and apparently not the last). Luckily I’ve seen Pretty Woman enough times to know I had to work from the outside in. Also met his friends from his volunteer organization, was a good night until his ex showed up just as we were leaving. She gave him crap about going so we ended up hanging around as a show of good faith, was a little awkward, especially since I’m pretty sure she was crying the first few minutes. But all in all an ok night and I think they liked me ok.

Also my Nan fell and broke her hip, she’s doing ok but it caused a heap of drama between my mum and her sisters. It’s amazing how people are never around until there’s a chance for brownie points.

Well that’s about it for now, will update when I hear about the course.

Currently reading- Agnes and the Hitman by Jenny Crusie and Bob Mayer…need me some lighthearted fun.


I have successfully passed all subjects for my Cert IV Liberal Arts!! And with WAY better grades than I ever expected I’d get…turns out I’m smarter than I give myself credit for.

Haven’t heard back about the Social Work course yet, but now that I’ve gotten good grades for my other course I might see if I can submit those as part of my application, might give me an edge.

Also picking up some extra hours at work, which is a massive bonus, means I can save up some money so I can move back out of hone again. While all is going ok living at home, I really miss being in my own place.

Things are still going excellently with the guy, he bought me a plush monster when I was sick and is generally amazing.

Currently reading- Lost and Found by Tom Winter…not what I’d usually go for, but I’m enjoying it, especially the character Albert.

Easter weekend this year was wonderful, I worked some overtime in the lead up to it, which means extra money, and then the new man invited me to spend the weekend in Warrnambool with him and some friends. I got to see some of the Great Ocean Road, met some awesome people and enjoyed some delicious food. We also managed to stumble upon a place called ‘Martians Cafe’ which was bizarre but great…

…and I discovered a tumblr post the new man has written about me that is absolutely swoon-worthy *sigh*. All in all a great weekend 🙂

In other news I have a 15 min oral presentation coming up for school on inequality and whether the government should be doing more to reduce it, and today I am getting busy whipping up a couple of batches of banana bread, the thing I love about banana bread is that it is just SO simple…here’s the recipe:

Banana Bread


  • 3 mashed bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup yoghurt
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 cup self raising flour


Preheat oven to 180 C

Grease a loaf pan.

Combine banana, eggs, sugar, vanilla and yoghurt in a large bowl. Add flour and mix till combined.

Pour mixture into loaf pan and bake for 45-50 mins, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.


Lastly, a little late…my photo with Keith Urban (notice his hand on my shoulder)
