How lazy am I?

Over a month? Wow!!!

Well I've pretty much settled in back in Melbourne. It took a while but I'll get there... All I've done since I've been there is just drink, drink, sleep, drink, eat, sleep & drink some more ;)

Anyway, running low on time.

I'm thinking of closing this blog. What do others think?

Hmmm.

3 days of work left. As much as you can hate work, I really don't want to leave. Perhaps it's all a comfort zone thing but really - a) I'm not ready to go back to Melbourne, b) I'll totally miss the money, 3) Most of the time I do enjoy working there [even thought I bag it and hate it some days]... I know that there's more reasons but right now I'm not quite sure of them.

I think that I need to make some decisions about what I really want to do. If I definately don't want to be in Melbourne, I probably shouldn't be there. It's a waste of money for a start and it's just making me unhappy. I'd love to move out of home here in Warny - work & study part time. But maybe I won't like that either *shrugs* I hate trying to make life changing decisions because I'm so scared of the outcome and that I'll change my mind again 10 minutes later.

One of my options - well thoughts rather is so dependent on other things. Like if my cousin doesn't get into Melbourne & the new chick at work doesn't work out I'll see if I can get my old job back part-time and study part time or off campus.
Ergh... I don't bloody know!!!

Wowie! You are Redensek! You are techy yet cute, and pretty much all around cool. Everyone loves you! You're fun, popular, and can mold yourself to fit right in to any situation.
Wow, long time no blog.

Anyway, not a whole lot has happened. We've had relatives down since Friday. My uncle & cousin, and then my aunt and cousin. Last night my cousin, sister & I went out. It was a pretty good night actually. Mind you my 16 year old sister got totally wasted, at the pub, on a school night *hmmm*... Luckily I got to have a sleep in. So hmmm...

I have 6 days of work left - I don't know whether I'm excited or not... yes & no I guess. I'm hoping my cousin gets into Melbourne somewhere in 2nd round offers - it would be pretty cool. We've set ourselves a weekly date of "Thursdays's 2 till 2" read: drinking, Thursday's 2pm till 2am... could be a bit fun.

Um... I'm thinking of going blonde too... right now I'm dark brown, but I have blue eyes so it could be okay, perhaps I can do it a gradually with foils or something, *shrugs* not too sure. Right now I'm making "mini-twisties" which consists of twisting all my hair into mine dreadlock type things, it's gonna take a while, I have *a lot* of hair...

This a boring, right? Time for me to go.

Well...

I've been rather unproductive today... I watched Rugrats nearly all day - as cool a show as it is, believe me, one does get sick of it after a while (funnily enough - I watched it from 9:30 until around 5, I did have about an hour break when I went down the street though).

Mum & Dad & my sister got back from Melbourne with two presents in tow for me a book "Teach Yourself CGI in 24 hours" and a funky new singlet top, it's white with red stripes and blue trim. And it say "have a boy in every port" - all good :-)

I'm thinking of starting another blog on my site - but what would the point in that? And besides I couldn't get it work anyhow :(

More later - maybe
Australia Day... day of beer, beach & bbq's. Perhaps


I think I'm living in a dream world actually.

Okay.. so for something a little more interesting I'm going to do the "Friday Five" -- I've got no idea where this originated from but I stole it from Jen

1. What do you have your browser start page set to?
blank... it's the only way to go

2. What are your favorite news sites?
--> Don't tend to look at news online often, but I head to ninemsn every now and then.

3. Favorite search engine?
--> Google! Google! Google!!

4. When did you first get online?
--> Ages ago now, but much later than everyone else. We got the net at home after I finished Year 12 (handy huh) so it was X-Mas '98.

5. How do you plan to spend your weekend?
--> 3 day weekend!!!! Ummm Mum, Dad & my sister are away until tomorrow night, so I'm fending for myself coz my brother seems to have gone AWOL, then I'll head to Lisa's. Tomorrow going to the beach and then a 21st tomorrow night... Sunday & Monday are totally free at the moment though.


Hmm, wasn't that lovely.

Tuesday, January 22, 2002

Hmmmm it's half past midnight and I'm still up - luckily I told my boss that I wasn't going to be in till a bit late tomorrow (or today rather)...

I'm in a dodgy mood, I want to sleep but I know as soon as I lie down I'll become all awake again, I hate that.

I've had the weirdest mood day. You know those days where you're happy one minute and then all yuck the next. Well I was like that today. I had a headache, stomach ache and it's that time of the month - too much info but hell...

Anyway now I'm complaining.

My cousin got into her 4th Uni preference, I'm not sure if she's happy with it or not coz I haven't spoken to her yet. But her best friend got into a course a Vic Uni in Melbourne, and my cousin wanted to go there aswell. However she's got into one here in Warrnambool, so it looks like she'll be living with Mum & Dad this year (glad I'm in Melb!!).

new topic

I saw this girl I went to school with today when I was down the street doing the banking. I didn't stop to speak to her coz I was really busy and so was she. But she has two kids!! She's only just gone 21 about a week or two ago from memory, argh!

I don't understand the whole teenage pregnancy thing, a while ago now I wrote a whole "article-type story" thing about ithere And I've still got the same opinion. Should you be proud of the ones that make it or turn your backs on the ones that don't.

Well a year (and a bit) later, I'm still seeing the same thing. And I think the problems gotten worse, how can that be. Do teenagers really want to have babies or is it cool? Or what? Whatever reason you have to wonder whether bringing a baby into that situation is really the right thing to do. Can a 15 year old really be an effective mother in the long term? Sure every case is different and you do see some success stories.

A lot of girls I went to school with have had children, easily, easily over a dozen. And I'm only 21. There've been success' and failures but I'm still "up in arms" about it so to speak.

If I got pregnant now (an immaculate conception of course ;) I really don't think that I would cope, at all. I'm not sure what my parents would say, or my friends or my relatives. I'd be scared of their reactions. I don't know how I'd tell them, it's such a terrifying thought. Me, with a baby. There would be so many things that I wouldn't able to do anymore. Like sit here all night and surf the net, design webpages. I'd be too damn tired. I couldn't go out every weekend and drink. My regular Wednesday night dinner thing with my friends would be out too... I could forget about going back to Uni for a while.

But then you think you'd have brought a baby into this world.

I don't know, there are just so many teenage girls with babies here in Warrnambool that it's scary. There've been several public jokes made about it; when Rebecca's Empire played here at a street festival a year or two ago they said "what isn't there anything to do in this town if you're fifteen, you have to go get pregnant..."; and on triple j when they were in warrnambool "Hi, we're in Warrnambool, the teenage pregnancy capital of the world - or maybe just victoria but shit the babies are popping out the the kids here" or something to that effect.

Well I guess all of this is just my opinion and I hope that I haven't offended anyone by it but... feel free to let me know.

-- thought provoking enough rach? --
