And so this is goodbye...

With the Year of the Rabbit now upon us, I've decided to move on from Blogspot and make some changes to the way I blog. One of the things I keep telling myself to do is find a way of blogging more so that my readers and I have a better idea of the happenings in my life.

Considering that I don't take photos like I used to, it's hard for me to keep track of all the memories that accumulate from day to day. That's why I've converted to tumblr for my random ramblings. Check out my new site here:

Thanks to all my loyal readers and hope to see you on tumblr soon!! xoxo

Catharsis 23 - January

1. Hope everyone had an awesome Australia Day. I know I did!!
2. Damn... wanted Li Na and Federer to win this year. Good effort though!!!
3. Why must you like the generic?! Is it so hard to open your eyes to something different?
4. Wonder why you're so shut off? You may be talking, but you're not telling me anything.
5. Should start to figure out what I really want out of this year.
6. Never thought I'd ever consider you. Lay-by perhaps?
Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No, it won't all go the way it should
But I know the heart of life is good

8. The outlook isn't good, but I'm the master of my own destiny.
9. Thanks for opening up. You're always close to my heart even if we may seem distant.
10. I really need to hang out with my girl friends more. Like seriously.
11. Need to get off my ass and exercise dammit.
12. Also need to clean, clean, clean.
13. WICKED!!! It better be as good as the reviews say...
14. Same with Black Swan.
15. No more stuffing around, responsibility awaits!!
I'll keep you guessing, keep you wanting more
'Cos where we're going no one knows...

17. Can't wait 'til it all comes together. Just need a game plan.
18. I miss having routine in my life.
19. Have a sudden urge to go to karaoke.
20. And get my pool skills better again.
21. And also poker.
May you never know one day when love isn't real
See this stuff to me is genuine only...

23. Bring it on February and Chinese New Year of the Rabbit!!

It's the end of the world as we know it...

The title may not ring completely true, but from all the FB posts I've seen today, we're all acting like it's the end of the world. Stocking up on supplies, panicking about whether loved ones are safe, mass evacuations and closed roads... it's all madness!!

Time to stock up on magazines, books, DVDs and music. Flood soundtrack consists of Vitamin String Quartet and Owl City.

It's gonna be a long few days of hermiting. Take care and stay safe during this time xoxo

The year that was 2010

1. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before?
- I went to a music festival. Well, 2 in fact. BDO was le awesome and Future would've been pretty good too if we weren't soaked and walking in the mud most of the time.
- Became an aunt. Finally have an excuse to shop for baby clothes and baby-related things.
- Watched a movie outdoors.
- I banned myself from Maccas and shopping for a month.
- Went to Law Ball. Was pretty cool to dress up and see other Law students get loose.
- I got a 6 for a Law subject!! So glad I got at least 1!!!
- Watched a footy game live. First time was le awesome 'cause it was free and I scored awesome seats. Second time was just as good but shame we lost both times. Next game is Game 1, State of Origin!!
- I deferred an exam. Wasn't even my fault either.
- I did the Bridge to Brisbane. 5km walk in less than an hour w00t.
- Went to watch a meteor shower. Was kinda fail but the experience was still fun.
- Was a tour guide and planned out a holiday. Those who know me well know that I'm not the biggest fan of organising things so having to find a way of showing a friend around Melb whilst also finding a way of catching up with friends there was a big step for me!!
- Went to Coffs Harbour [and also passed by Byron Bay] for the first time. That place was a good place to go to end the year of 2010.

2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Nope, I don't make resolutions mainly 'cause I don't keep them plus I forget them. Will make a list of things to do this year though.

Not checking my subs properly and only realising halfway through Sem 2 that I still had another sub left to complete felt pretty fail to me.

Won't mention his name here but it's awesome how good friends we've become in the shortish time we've known each other.

It's OK to show vulnerability sometimes.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
Show me a reason, give me a sign
Tell me the way we fall out of line
Is it today or is it tonight
We'll find the answer to our life...
