Once again I’m sorry for being so absent lately, uni has pretty much taken over my life. If you’re a student in Brisbane you’ll understand that once the Jacaranda trees are blooming, you need to know your stuff. Well the Jacaranda trees are well and truly bright purple and I still have bucket loads of work to do, so I’m going to make this short and sweet. For the first time in nine months, I finally got to visit home in Cairns for ten days! I’d forgotten how absolutely stunning Cairns is (and how amazing it is to have parents that do your washing and cook you dinner every night). I didn’t realise how much I missed it until I was there again, sipping juice at the beach shack, catching up with the greatest neighbours in the world (they mentioned that they read my blog from time to time, hey guys :P) and partying with my old school friends who have seen me at my absolute worst (grade 10) and still want to hang out with me. I miss having cats and walking around bare foot and being able to walk as slowly as I want without creating a traffic jam of people that are late for work. It kills me when I see people on facebook that are just so unappreciative of living in Cairns. I mean, I’ve been through it, I know that it can get a little suffocating when everyone knows everyone and you’ve lived there your whole life, but there are so many worse places to live. I love living in Brisbane because there are so many opportunities, and I’m able to study what I want to study and have a much needed change of scenery – but I would never trade growing up in Cairns for the world. Anyway, here are a couple of photos of my little holiday:
It was a really lovely ten days even though I had to do uni work every night. I can’t wait to go back in November and see everyone again without having to do anything because first year will be done and dusted! I cannot believe how fast this year has gone, and although so much has happened, when I try to think back it just seems like I’m flicking through the pages of a book, and not really focusing on one event in particular. I find it really hard to focus in general because my head is so crowded with ideas and deadlines and a certain person who’s attention I can’t seem to get.
Also, on a completely random note, I recently got glasses and I actually really like them. Lets just hope that Dorothy Parker is wrong!
A little poem by Dorothy Parker:
Men seldom make passes: At girls who wear glasses.
Anyway, I vaguely recall saying that I was going to make this short and sweet, so I’ll finish up here. Thanks for reading an update about my life, I hope that it didn’t make you fall asleep. Unless you’re reading it right before bed; in that case, sleep well.
