Today I'm getting on a plane to New York and on New Year's Day I'm getting on a plane to Ottawa.

The extreme cold, I fear it!

Feel like bursting into tears.

Should probably go get my iron levels tested.

Time affords a little now.

roll o' filmCollapse )

Last month in Sydney was top top top, there was so much brilliance happening, so many good bands to be seen, two weekends in particular that were spectacular. The first weekend there was an amazing show at Maggotville warehouse which doubled as Mike's farewell, it was madness. Wasted Truth, Kitchen's Floor, Blank Realm and Naked On The Vague as well as some other of my favourites played, all in one room and were all wonderful. Naked On The Vague as a 4-piece in particular blew me away, and when I went to see Blank Realm at a little art gallery the next night in got all drone-dancy and was mystical.
Last weekend was the Sydney leg of Flip Out Festival (put on by Aaarght! and Stained Circles) and was stupendous fun. ZOND are my new fixation. Royal Headache (friends and were on pitchfork! Too funny) were tip-top too. Pink Reason, Goodnight Loving and James Arthur's Manhunt were on the bill too, amongst other local bands, and maybe it's my bias but it really felt like the local talent was more exciting than the overseas ones.

It was my birthday on Sunday. I'm getting a dSLR and some other nice stuff. That's it. Sydney is better 'cos I know I'm getting out of it. Tip-top I am exhausted from doing uni work and not sleeping.

My silence momentarily interrupted. It's been busy, I haven't written anywhere in any format for a long time though I've been thinking of doing so for a fair while.

Real entry soon. Maybe. x

I feel like wandering around the whole city in a daze, with a perfect soundtrack.

I think I lost my moleskine on Friday night. I'm reeling at the thought of where it is and who is reading it. I actually feel a little bit like I'm going to be sick. Especially because I probably left it a). at a friend's place or b). Yvonne Ruve at the gig I was at. Fuck fuck fuck.

And it had my Group Certificate in it with my tax money. But I don't even really care about that. I would rather it be lying in a fire right now than somebody else's eyes coveting it.

I can't shake this feeling. Don't know why it's been like this for the last few months (maybe year?) but I can't seem to run away from this looming cloud.

I don't really have any reason for this, maybe I need to adjust my definitions of 'success' 'satisfaction' 'happiness' 'loneliness'.

Early twenties, I wish I could say I am experiencing you. Awkward years over.

Melbourne was immense amazing times and I'm in love with somebody who's too old for me and will only break my heart.
We kissed and I said I can't do that with him because I adore him too much. Then we watched The Johnny Cash Show and I got shivers.

only a fewCollapse )

Going to get my film photos developed tomorrow - hopefully they will be great.
Spending just about every day and night with probably my favourite person in the world was so incredible and I miss it dearly. We went to darling little cafes, a gig just about every night, a house show with Sydney bands/friends, Castle Tones (put on by Mistletone) where love was professed, graffiti hunting, op shopping galore, lovely people meeting, park sitting, coffee drinking and lots of giggling.
I can't wait until I finish university and can move there. Sydney is not home anymore.

I also feel like a mess. I cry with no provocation. I want to say so much more but don't have the means.

Finished uni work. Going to do part-time next semester most likely and just try to save save save for Canada exchange and if I don't get that, for New York.
I want to move to Melbourne so badly but I want to finish my degree first, but I don't know if I want to move to Melbourne more than finishing my degree here. I guess I should wait and see what happens with exchange.

I think I nailed it the other day in saying that it's not Sydney that I don't like (I quite love it), it's not the people, it's just that I've been living here my whole life, in the same house with friends who I seem to be in different places too, and I feel like I just want to challenge myself. I want to put myself in a city where I don't know anybody (or hardly anyone) and see how I fare, and make friends that I want to make without the politics of current friendships. I know how hard that would be for me and I'd get depressed pretty quickly and easily but if I did it it would be the greatest confidence boost I could ever ask for. Losing myself in a new city and fighting those battles alone is the most appealing thing to me at this moment.

I'd posr something more interesting but in the end it doesn't matter, this is my whinge journal and it will always remain such.

Need to have a whinge [04 Jun 2009|06:27am]
I am absolutely astounded with the amount of things that can go wrong in the last week and a half, when I need nothing to go wrong at all.

Surely this is some sort of test for me, because it's getting a little bit ridiculous and I'm on the verge of saying fuck it and failing uni.
Now I must make my way there at an ungodly hour.
Au Revoir.

Just updated my blog when I should be writing an essay.
I'm not so happy with it, I wish I could tweak it and refine it and go into a lot more detail, but I have no time, and when I do I'm not inspired.

Please feel free to leave abusive comments. They will be appreciated.

[ mood | morose ]

I just booked my flights to Melbourne: 25th June to the 2nd July. Shit yes. I'm going with Mike, Mia and Tom and it's going to be great. Probably staying at The Exford. Mia and Tom aren't stayig the whole time, and Tom and I are just going to op-shop until we fall over.
I need this holiday so badly even though I should be saving for Canada if I get the exchange.
It is a little annoying that everybody has plans to go down to Melbourne at the same time though, I wanted to get away from Sydney people, not get away from Sydney and see the same people in a different city. But what can you do.
University is raping me with assessments but I finish on the 5th of June so if I'm not comatose there will be much to celebrate.
The boy I kind of like is moving to Melbourne. How upsetting.
Here are some of the photos from my latest roll of film.
