blergh yeah good point. what div are you hoping to run this year? how was your christmas/new year’s :)?

I have no clue what happened to me this semester. I took notes in all of the lectures, but when I read them I can’t remember learning any of it! No explanation for my failure to start making wallpaper summaries halfway through term - while I did make a lot of trips up to Sydney for job interviews, it doesn’t fully explain what happened to my study ethic. Now cramming! Studying so hard I skipped rifle this week - how tragic!

I have an awful/amazing crush on the writing of Jonathan Crowe - just so elegant, so clear, with nothing that needs editing. If all the work I edited looked like his, it would look like I wasn’t doing my job!

It’s all DIY round here! Trying desperately not to lose interest in projects - figure posting about them will help. This is all decor for the house next year - I’m sanding down a nice and simple bedside table with the intent of spraypainting it a really deep aquamarine. The photo frame was to test out techniques (pic is with 1 coat over primer, but it’s finished now).

The last picture is of a few of the vintage prints I bought (got half a dozen for around $10 each) with completely shonky mock-up matting - A4 printer paper, holla! - in $2 frames from the op shop. Still not sure if the frames will look better if I paint them black - these are the prettiest and it would be a shame to lose that gold edging. All in the name of decor!

Also acquired - two deadstock Australian tea towels - one of the lovely Canberra and one of the 1986 Perth America’s Cup. Finding frames big enough for those two is going to be tricky - I think I may have to resort to Ikea.

I have also sanded the heel of my right hand down to a fine burr. Still better than doing uni work.

For what defence have we against the terror and beauty of nothingness, other than to make an ark of our soul and our work, and haul out of the rapids and into it all the things and all the people we have known and loved, all that is forever on the verge of vanishing, and with them, laughing, joyful, amazed at who and what and where we are, continue journeying into the magnificent unknown, that vast perhaps?

Itching to go back to Canberra. Once you’ve written a certain number of clerkship applications they all blur together and you feel like a parody of yourself. Argh!  View high resolution

Dingle Peninsula, Co. Kerry. Just walked 66km of the peninsula over three days with a friend from Dublin - it was a fantastic way to end my time in Ireland! We had such good weather that we even managed to acquire sunburns. View high resolution

So I’m just a bit frustrated and sad, because time is racing by and I only have 18 days left in Ireland. I wish I could turn back to old pages in the story and write new things in between the lines, but I can’t. Having recently made friends I wish I’d known months earlier is incredibly painful! Photo is sunset looking west down Pearse St from my apartment complex - O’Connell St Spire in the background. View high resolution

Back from a great weekend in Amsterdam, although I did miss Queen’s Day by just a bit! I would definitely go back when next in Europe (yeah, whenever that will be..) Time is flying by just a bit too quick - I’ve got just under a month left in Ireland. View high resolution
