Christmas is over. I submitted my first uni assignment (and will probably get very average marks as I don’t want to write factual articles for newspapers). Movers came and took all of our belongings away to Melbourne for $1000. I spent a lot of money at Boxing Day sales and I feel very guilty about it and have now placed myself on lockdown. I got very very drunk last night at the club my best friend works in and threw up in Tim’s car. I saw The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and thought it was great.
All in all, it’s been a pretty interesting week.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download
Christmas was really nice, I got a lot of great presents from my family and Tim’s friends, like nonfiction books, my first ever Lonely Planet that wasn’t photocopied in Vietnam, and Dean Koontz books. For travelling I got a food tour for Tim and I in Vietnam, and my first pair of Havianas, which will be a really good pair of flip flips for Asia, and pyjamas so that I don’t have to go half naked if we stay in hostels. Tim bought me a lovely pair of earrings and expensive makeup I refuse to splurge on myself, and a cute collage photo frame with pictures of us.
My uni assignment was boring and not fun. I don’t want to be a journalist and writing completely boring articles with no opinion or interesting input really sucks. I don’t expect good marks and I am looking forward to 8 weeks away when I can move on to my next course.
Our movers were friendly and chatty, pointed out to us that nearly every piece of furniture we had was scratched, and told us they were going to pull our BBQ out at Byron Bay and take our bikes for a spin. Our things should arrive at Tim’s parents’ house tomorrow at some point, and hopefully it’s all there and all of my fragile stuff (teacups and teapots) survived the ride.
The rest of my week was just work, shopping and getting too drunk last night because my bartender best friend kept filling me full of alcohol. It was just what I wanted though, I just didn’t want to spend the drive home puking on myself/Tim’s car. It’s not the first time or even the tenth time that I’ve had a really horrid end of the night with alcohol, and I think I might just give it up except for special occasions. I love having fun, but I’m sure I wasn’t born a drinker (and don’t feel like conditioning my body to destroy itself just to become one).
On a brighter note, I finally got to see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty today and absolutely loved it. I thought it was shot really beautifully (cinematography skills really speak to me as a wannabe cinematographer) and it was played out beautifully. All of the shots in Iceland also rekindled my burning urge to go there, and I think when I get back from this trip to SE Asia I’m going to try and look into it a little more and start saving to go there. My new freeze proof camera can actually be put to good use!
Even Tim mentioned that the film made him want to jump on a plane and travel right now and the film did the same for me. I would recommend that anyone reading this blog who hasn’t seen the movie goes out and sees it immediately.
I’m going to spend the rest of the night in bed, sorting through clothes with Tim while we try to create a packing list for our trip, which is only 22 days away! Eeeeek!
