i'll be your mirror

What's up homies? Well. I know from my blog entries it kind of seems like I'm an alcoholic bimbo, but that would be wrong. And also judgmental, you assholes! actuality I am working towards a university degree (by correspondence, as not to aggravate my social ineptitude on an actual campus, with other people). Am actually getting a little excited about university starting up again this semester, as it will give me something to think about in my spare time so I don't accidentally go insane.

Although I'm not studying any English literature classes this semester (which will feel a bit weird), I am definitely looking forward to studying Nutrition and Art History. Provided I can juggle two classes alongside full-time work and salsa dancing. Ooh, I want to learn French as well, and purchase those language CD's, and a little microphone to speak into...

Well. That was a little bit of a spiel. But it's cool for you guys to know that there is more to me, am not a life waster or anything like that. Alright. I'm going out to grab some noodles for dinner.

it's my wife and it's my life

I stayed out with some party people until the sun came up last night. It is the strangest thing when the nightclubs begin to close in the early hours of the morning; they really should be open all hours to accommodate scoundrels like us, who freeze in the brisk morning air in flimsy clothing designed for hot sweaty nightclubs, close contact and frenzied dancing. We caught the bus home in the morning, delicate stomachs and all, alongside all the weekend workers heading in for the morning shift.

I need some sleep. I'm alone in my bedroom, again (sometimes a sharehouse can be a surprisingly lonely affair when you don't feel you fit in all that well). Listening to The Velvet Underground's "Heroin."

Another photograph of me! Aren't you all just so lucky. I need a haircut.

we won't stop until somebody calls the cops

Good morning.

Well, it appears that I have exhausted myself from last night's crazy adventures. Woke up with a sore neck (fell asleep upright on the couch earlier by accident) and bathed in sweat (overdosed on Redbull). So today I aspire to sleep, eat some fruit and a corn cob that I've been saving for a special occasion, read some much neglected novels and watch episode after episode of "Gossip Girl." It's so calming!

Also family dinner tonight, which will be fun. These days, if I don't go out for dinner, I don't eat. I really should get used to that "regular groceries" business I hear so much about.

let's get it started

It is Friday: the holiest of holy days now that I have a proper office job. So I am going to go out to a club, wear a little dress, big boots, smear some make-up on my eyelids and get messed up. It really is the most fun way to forget all my problems for one night.

i'm not a real doctor but i am a real worm

I figure that the celebrations and general looseness of the festive season can be reasonably extended until the end of January, when it is my birthday, because there is really no point in celebrating the new year and then only have a couple of weeks gap before the next celebration. Useless. So, until the beginning of February, I have decided that I am allowed indulge in my vices, which may or may not include:

(1) Drinking a lot of wine and getting quietly tiddly by myself in the corner until I eventually fall asleep and wake up with the driest mouth on Earth.

(2) Purposely getting hyped up on chocolate coated coffee beans and cans of Redbull before being disappointed when I can't sleep very well, and then waking up with my heart still racing.

(3) Spending all my dollars on clothing that I love but can never really bring myself to wear because they are too beautiful and delicate and unique and imagine if some asshole carelessly spilled a raspberry vodka down the front of that extremely lovely extremely expensive beige dress? Just no.

- Eating a single egg for dinner because I just got home from work and I have no groceries except for a crinkly old carrot in the fridge that I should really have thrown out a week ago but it's the only vegetable on my shelf so it's staying there for aesthetic reasons.

self portrait

I just have this feeling that this year is going to be a good one.

let your hips do the talking

So last night a bunch of us went out to get raucous in the city, as you do, and my brother totally got punched in the eye! But he's okay. We're all fine and happy now.
I spent today frail and hungover at my parents' eating crepes and fruit, and eventually fell asleep on the couch for a full four hours during a film. Now I am back at my apartment, have carefully washed my face, cleaned my teeth, taken my habitual evening fish oil tablets, and will don my satin eye mask for a night of uninterrupted slumber in order to repair my freshly damaged cells. Goodnight!

have you ever been experienced

The beginning of the new decade is freaking me out. It's already the 6th of January, I'm turning twenty at the end of the month, I don't know what to expect, I don't know what kind of changes I will undertake, I don't know if the world could come crashing down and I'm fucking scared.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go and wash my face so I can go to bed. Have to be clean.

Picture is of Patti Smith.

you were not the same after that

Why hello there, pretty lace shirt! I must have spent a couple hundred dollars today on clothes, shoes and perfume...mighty fucking indulgent. I had better cut back because soon I will have no money left for necessities such as food, rent or university textbooks. I forget that I don't have a trust fund sometimes.

goals for 2010

It's 2010, people! Okay, so this post will probably be of little interest to anyone who isn't me, as they are just my personal resolutions, but blogging is a quick way to get my ideas down and it's something for me to look back on. Here goes...

(1) Have fun this year. After the epic seriousness of last year I'm completely ready to get silly and just have a good time. Need to keep in touch with the fun people, party more, dance dance dance, be more reckless and stay positive.

(2) Be sartorially awesome. I want to look fabulous at all times! This goal will need to include the purchase of more shoes at the post-Christmas sales tomorrow with Mummy Fifi, and the wearing of more outrageous jewellry. I don't really know which look I want to go for this year though...grungy? Preppy? Super crazy alien ala Alexander McQueen? Who knows.

(3) Stay pescetarian. I ate some meat at Christmas because it looked delicious and I made an exception for myself, but I'm not completely dying for it now. I think I will just happily float along with my seafood, vegetables, tofu, soy milk and nuts. It's all good. An addition in the same category of this goal is to cook more (something besides soup in a can), drink more water and not eat out of boredom.

(4) Grow my hair long. I want long messy hair because then I can just wake up and go!

(5) Impress people at my new job. I've been warned that my first week (beginning Monday!) will be hell on Earth, but I plan to stick it out. I don't know how well I will cope with the 9-5 grind, but I figure that I can just have some fun extra curricular activities lined up for the after-work hours. I have some cute outfits to wear, there is a coffee machine, and casual Fridays actually exist. It's going to be okay.

(6) Do well at my studies. I just have to keep plugging away at my degree, even though I will probably be super-busy this year with work (and hopefully some weekend shenanigans, in alignment with Resolution #1). Next semester I am studying nutrition as an elective, so I'm kind of excited about that because it's something that I have quite the interest in.

(7) Get my driver's licence. I've been working on this one for a while but 2010 is going to be the year that I am on the road (as in, driving a car, not roadkill).

like oh my god

Happy New Year everybody! I am now sitting in my bedroom sweating out copious amounts of caffeine, nicotine and THC, the balcony is flooded with spilt wine and vodka, there are Red Bull cans everywhere, the ashtrays are overflowing and the hammock has been completely shredded...all signs of a successful night. So much fun.

Going to my parents tonight for some recovery in the form of Mum's cooking (seafood crepes for dinner and trifle for dessert) and lounging in front of the television. Sounds good to me.
