Im currently having a productive morning, doing my assignment on miscommunication and culture with Brazil. Which is due Thurs, however i also have to fit in studying for my contract law exam on thursday 2. *groan* Sometimes i wish things just flowed more, maybe everyone has the same lack of flow issues i do, but maybe not.

Summer school has increased my consumptions of vodka, not sure if this is a good thing. I think mixing with sprite has increased my sugar intake by a fair whack. Must give this up at the end of summer school.

I wonder if i will ever get used to this, as i still have another 1.5yrs if i pass everything. Its strange though they all seem very interested in what i have done between school and uni. Its like they are all about to embark on their lifes. Rather in my case i realise how fast each year goes, and it seems like not enough time. Maybe there is something said for coffee to have a 20hr day.

I think I am watching way to much TV, lol i cant help it. have borrowed all the seasons of Sopranos and im addicted. I hope i dont look back regret how much Tv i watched. I just dont know how people get the energy to do so much.

Uni holidays are dragging slowly and considering everyone else i know works its getting a tad slow!!!

We have just been to Fiji for a little break which was brilliant, did nothing. Just ate, slept, and went swimming. Didnt even get a tan, just sunburnt shoulders. I love going on holiday there is a certin thrill with walking into a travel agent with a mission. Daz wants to go back to the US, so *fingers crossed* late next year.

Passed all my first semester units at uni YAY. Have enrolled in Summer school, Business communications and contract law. First semester next year is going to be crazy as i had permission to load up, therefore: Accounting, Bus Stats, Econs (Macro), Law Finance, and Finance intro. *groan* IM SCARED!!!

Im trying to be good and not go out to much, as not earning a income makes me feel bad!

I have joined a gym and have been going everyday, just something to do i guess. Hopefully it will pay off for summer. Im not really sure how i seem to be crazy busy for weeks on end and then a few days with absolutely nothing to do. I even resorted to cleaning the house this morning. Maybe i will go out for a drive, keep myself entertained. The ability to sit in front of the TV all day is way to easy.

I was thinking about what it would be like to live in the US for a bit, Daz is keen as he has lived there before. Maybe 2010 as i should be finished uni by then, and still not ready to have kids.

Merry Christmas to all!!! Must upate this more.

Well I am starting Golf lessons next week. One of our mates has booked his gf so i will have company while losing my temper! If I can must being slightly more patient it will be a good thing.

You know when you stop enjoying yourself and you arent entirely happy afterwards, that sometimes a friend change is needed.

Daz got me a good book for Christmas
Don't Sweat the Small Stuff
I really like it and have read it all already. One of my new years resolutions is not to stress as much. One of the best quotes from the book is:
"You dont have to catch the ball".

Merry Christmas All!!! YAY for holidays!

I got woken up at 6am on Christmas morning by Daz being over excited about his PS3 =) lol

Life is going so fast, I guess that is what happens when you work alot.

Need to start thinking of those new year goals:

1. Get a hobby

Any hobby suggestions?

Well its been a few months....

I have been around the world, seen so many different places.
I loved Monte Carlo - $50Aussie dollars a hand black jack.
I loved Pompeii - was so old and massive!!! I would definitely go back there
Paris was excellent, everything was so beautiful!! The dog poo was a bit much though, i dont do the whole dog sitting on a seat at a restaurant.

Nice was lovely, private jets coming in every 10mins, so many wealth people. I loved all the cars!!

I got a bit over how everyone has killed and tortured each other for 100s of years. One looses faith in humanity, it was a relief to go to the US.

We got up graded to business class from London to LA. THAT TOTALLY RULED!!! There was the main evil guy from Casino Royal sitting next to us!!!!

Universal Studies was my favourite, out of the theme parks. The chopper ride into the grand canyon for a champagne breakfast was sweet too.

Beverly Hills was very nice!! I could say live there, mind you a tad expensive!!

After all is said and done, i am just glad to be home in Australia. Not going anywhere for a while, ummmm Japan next year though.

YAY not long to go now till holidays!!! =) Everything is booked.
We have got the best seats (cost a fortune) for the below Cirque De Soleil in Vegas =)

I wear a pedometer everyday (I know i am sad!) it was a birthday present, 10,000 steps people!
Well i am working really hard at the moment, no time to spare, the year is going so fast for me. Very tired after work each day, which is ok cos so is Daz as he is working hard too.

We go to Melbourne this Friday for our 1 year wedding anniversary! I still havent got Daz a present i dont know what to get him its soooo hard!!! I know he has bought me jewellery, which makes it even more important for me to work out something cool to get him.

On further inspection of my nails i did a terrible french tips with the nail polish. LOL it looks like whiteout.

Also, turns out my dad was thinking of crewing on that boat off Queensland, the one where the 3 men went missing. They live in the same area and he had heard about it, he decided not to in the end cos they didnt have much experience.

Not sure exactly what i am doing with my life as per usual. I am really proud of Daz his work just has taken off in the last year and a half, he just is doing so well for himself. The business that we were going to do together has been shelved, its just not worth it compared to the money he can bring in. Soooo I still need to find something for myself to do. Daz keeps saying what would make you happy, well maybe being a ski instructor, mind you i would have to learn to ski properly first.

Our little cat Cyclone aka Punky, is sitting half in and half out the loungeroom door, he doesnt want to go outside cos its a bit wet, but he doesnt want to be stuck inside either. He is a huge source of amusement, his addiction to cotton buds is very funny. We have cotton buds all around the house, i have to say to people that we arent grotts, its just the cat. They are clean cotton buds he nicks out of the bathroom cabinet draw.

hmmm how long before we go on our big holiday??? I want to go now dammit. My addiction to Vampire books has started again, i have bought alot laterly. Wonder why. Also I seem to want to run, i feel the urge to run, I dream about running on a tread mill. I have to say before anyone reads into this its nothing to do with my personal life, more my professional life. I can admit i am jealous of people whos passion is their career!!

My dogs got poisioned 2 weeks ago. They survived, we were very worried about the big dog though, he was very sick (nearly died).

This evening the cat was bitten by a snake, she is in a critical condition at the vet. Mum must have just gotten home just after it happened, otherwise she would be dead.

Went to Kylie concert last week on Thursday night. It was really good, Rachel got us awesome seats we were about 8 rows back and nearly square on. It was a very good concert and I loved the costumes.

We put up our Christmas tree on the weekend and the cat did a mad jump and landed splat on it and knocked the whole thing over! Lol!

Anyways also was sick last week, which sucked. My job is pretty full on and being sick was not helpful I had two days off and like 50 emails to read when i got back.

Daz and I have been playing lots of D&D Heros on x-box, i get so addicted to these things that i deam about them.

Fire Drill today. 1) i work on the 21st floor. 2) I was wearing a pair of the highest high heels i own! 3)There is two sets of stairs per level ie 10ea way, so 20 per floor.

I spent 1.5hrs cleaning the house today, as I dreamt about it last night and felt guilty.

I was in the paper today! in the social pages.

We have been watching lots of Boston Legal laterly, borrowed the series off a friend. I really like James Spaders character.

Feeling a bit tired, as the cat woke me up at 4am for a cuddle then at 4.30 for another cuddle.

Not sure whats happening with my current contract it could go either way, more work or somewhere else.

Well my 2 week contract has gone on for 3.5months. It ends on the 31 October. I have been so busy, so much stuff on.

The cat is so cute, I love him to bits. He still sleeps on me at night, but he is quite big now. He is a little spoilt brat, he eats tuna and whole prawns for dinner "fussy cat food". But he doesnt eat to much so its fine, and we buy heaps when they are on sale.

We have had a few close ones, nearly buying houses. Man its so hard, and realestate people are pains in the BUTTS!!!

I must say currently TodayTonight is on, god they do some crap reports!!

Darryl and I have been playing co-op x-box games together.

Trying to plan our europe holiday next year, still havent done much for it yet. But i really really want to go.

I have finally got my act together and made a dentist appointment, yes over $1000 worth of dental work going to be done on the 1 November!!!!

I am going to the Kylie concert, should be sweet, Rachel got the tickets. Speaking of I am going to horse racing thing with Rachel on Saturday must find a dress.

We went to the Royal show and i manage not to buy too many showbags, only two!! i love going, all the stores and crap! We spend hours cruising the pavillions.

YAY the painting looks really good, Dad and I painted the downstairs lounge and dinning room. We had done a creamy white colour, the walls were far too yellow. It looks like fresh and clean, i am so pleased. We need to do a second quote, that is tomorrow. The kitten has helped lol, he sat on my lap and ate the end of my brush while i did the skirting boards this morning. After we finish painting, have to work out if we want carpet or wood.

Looks like i have another job already.
2:01 pm
I have the flu!! DOH! The cat and Aids are keeping me company. Aids is playing x-box and i am supervising.

I bought some clothes with Rachel friday and some way cool very expensive Dior sunglasses. However I did get 50% on the sunglasses they were still way expensive. I wouldnt have paid the full price for them, i dont think anyone would.

Had lunch with my nana, mum, aunty and great aunty at Joes in Freo. Daz and I bought had seafood platters which was way cool.

Interesting developments with house stuff, all good stuff though. I got a bit upset though, cos i thought people or Daz would judge me. But Daz is quite happy with it. We will wait and see though if it actually happens.

We have a 9week old black Kitten called Cyclone. We got him from the RSPCA he is way cute!! He is settling in really well, very happy. He even takes himself off the to the toliet in the middle of night down stairs. Mind you he has a bit of trouble getting back on the bed so he does little meows till either of us wake up and scope him up. He is sleeping in between us in the bed and he is so small and cute.

Just drank half a bottle of sweet red in the sun at Point Walter. A picnic for my mums birthday, the weather is lovely today!!

Been down south visitng my Grandparents, and bought a ton of wine. There is a good winery on Caves Road called Eagelvale, its at the far end towards the south. The last winery, we picked up some yummy stuff.

I am trying to motivate myself to clean the house and do the washing.

Looks like we are planning our next holiday, even though we havent been to tahiti yet. We are possibly going to Europe next year. My mum wants to tag along for bits.

Business stuff- A business man we know wants some of our stuff (he has made contact), so we have to get things sorted. Its been put on the back burner till after the wedding and till Daz can cut his contract hours back. But now there may be a bit of choas before the wedding.
