05.05.05!!

So come on, i had to post today because of the date- it's the 5th day of the 5th month, 2005, how cool is that! Lol, ah the amusements of being a nerd ;o)! So it's been a pretty full on week thus far, with school and other stuff which most of you know about but which i'm not sure what i can say about on here, haha... Plus another thing which none of you know about but will know soon! In terms of school, i had a couple of days of non-brain-function where i really couldn't be bothered to do work, but then yesterday though i was quite exhausted i had to make myself work, and i did. Fascinating stuff really. After stressing a bit about where i was going with my art final in the holidays (was gonna do some spider thing, inspired by Alfie and Theodore the spiders in my backyard) I'm on a new direction- thinking of doing one of my Dad... Actually i'm enjoying year 12- for once it feels like the work matters (rather than those random assignments you had to do in other years about something you were never going to use/remember!), i really like the whole Eden Park (old mansion/house that's kind of the year 12's territory for the year) thing, and I'm going to miss the comfort of routine (well maybe not the early mornings!) as well as seeing my friends everyday! That's something i've been really grateful for lately actually, i have such awesome friends and family. Plus my house. I love my house.

OK that's really gross/odd, my cat's licking my nail file. Eww, dead skin cells!! Lol! Anyway, i'm getting excited about Sydney tomorrow- the plans have changed slightly- still going to the ballet, but now afternoon tea-ing and coffee-ing at the Stanford (Stamford?) Grand rather than dinner at the Intercontinental (i think), but i don't mind really- it's meant a slight wardrobe revision (yahoo, get to get dressed up!) but the main thing is spending time with the family which'll be really fun!

OK, I'm not gonna copy Sez and Lib by doing a 'listening to' thing on here, so i'll do a 'reading' thing. At the moment I'm reading that oh so famous book 'The Da Vinci Code'. I was kind of putting it off for a while because i thought i didn't really need to read it if it was going to put doubts in my mind (with the whole Church conspiracy thing) but you've just gotta remember it's a fictional novel, and so far it's been a good read- you can see why it's so popular! Nice short chapters so you can't put it down, suspensful, and all the history, artwork, old societies etc (very simplistic synopsis!) is really interesting. But I'm only like a fifth of the way in, so i'll let you know how it goes...
