I officially started back at Uni yesterday. Technically I have finished for the year, but I have decided to do units over Summer session. I was going to be doing 2 units, but when my learning sites became available on Blackboard there were 4 units there. I looked at them all and there are only 2 assessments for each one which I think is achievable, and given our tight money situation I won’t really be doing anything over Summer anyway, so why not knock off a couple more units while I am poor hehe.
Anyway, I was listening to music on YouTube the other night and this song came up on my feed as a suggestion. I wasn’t to sure about it on the first listen, but ever since I have had it bouncing around in my head, and have found myself singing it under my breath at random intervals.
In an attempt to start using my blog more I have decided to get on the Throwback Thursday bandwagon. And thanks to my mother’s obsession with uploading old photos of us on Facebook, I have a large supply of photos to share hehe.
This photo was taken on New Years Eve 2000 with my little brother and sister. I was 15! I remember my friends and I buying glitter bath bombs and a tin of glitter dust (which I still have!) from the Body Shop so we would be glittery all night. I was very much in love with the top I was wearing and I remember burning it with the iron and being devastated (the mark on the front is not the burn, it had a flower design on it).
Today I am going to talk about a dirty topic. The kind of topic that in the past has had me running in the opposite direction with my eyes covers and saying “la la la la” as loud as I can. The horrible topic of . . . budgeting. ARRRRGGGGGGG! But stay tuned to the end as I will have a lovely give away at the end of this post to help you with your budgeting. Contest is now finished. Winner will be announced soon.
So I purchased an Erin Condren Life Planner this week, if you havn’t heard of them, they are these really cool planners that they market in a way that makes grown women feel like kids at Christmas. They are customisable, you can add on as much stuff to it as you need (or want?), and they look A M A Z I N G.
They take a while to get due to the customisable part, which makes the “kid at Christmas” feeling so much worse, I check my account about 3 times a day to see if there is an progress on it yet (there isn’t but then thats not suprising seeing as its July 4th time over in the US).
So what do crazy people (aka me) do when they have ordered a beautiful planner that they are itching to use 2 weeks ago? We make a temporary planner hehehe. I am actually pretty impressed with my efforts, I intend on using this as my Life Planner until my real one arrives then transfer everything into the pretty, customised, Erin Condren goodness.
This is the month view:
The weekly view:
and my goals for next week, I really hope this will keep me on track with my dieting.
So yesterday morning I discovered that Regina Spektor (who is my favourite musician in the whole entire world) is playing in Brisbane next week. Unfortunatly I have $0 available to buy a ticket and was totally bummed. I told my best friend about it yesterday when we were at work, and today when she came in she tells me that she has bought me a ticket for the concert next Thursday! Seriously, BEST FRIEND EVER!
While train safety is a very important thing, I love that they have made this the cutest train safety video ever. My kids think it is great, and really when you think about it, its the kids you need to get, us oldies are already too set in our ways to change those stupid habits we’ve built up over our lifetimes lol.
