My little Jack Russell seems to get into everything she shouldn't, and places she shouldn't. An example would be, on our walk tonight. Whenever my larger, older dog Charlie would go to pee on something, she gets in under him, to check out what he was sniffing at in the first place. So I think tonight she was peed on probably 5 times? So because I like to cuddle my dogs (a lot) I needed to bath her before I forgot (which I swear I would have if I'd left it any longer).
I'm still feeling a little off colour. My usually non-existent asthma seems to prolong recovery, which sucks because I am usually good 11 months of the year. Tomorrow, I am off work and let's hope that the day to rest does some good.
I can't think what to write about. I have a million things running through my head at the moment, but most I don't think is entirely appropriate for the internet. A friend of mine has just re-adjusted her blog as she found she was venting too much on it. So now venting goes in an actual hand written journal, and everything else on the blog. Which means I am going to have to get her to read me her journal, because let's face it - reading a blog is no fun if it's all sunshine and lollipops. Or more so, it's censored. I'd love an uncensored blog. Ohh how much trouble I would get into too. Not that anyone really reads it except for a few friends, but knowing my luck - the second I wrote something awful, the whole bloody world would read it.
I guess this is me introducing myself.
I am 24 (scarily, 25 this year - it's really freaking me out).
I am a designer.
I am a little overweight.
I love cooking and food (see above).
I have 2 dogs.
I live with my boyfriend in Sydney.
I wish I could travel more.
I do not like the city.
I hate pretentious people.
I bite my nails.
I am messy.
I like old movies and music pre: 1999.
Keeping a blog keeps me semi-sane.
I always start things and never finish them (like cups of teas, random art challenges).
I am thinking I might have a go at this, '100 Art Themes' business. The main link is here, if you want an idea on what it's all about. http://100themeschallenge.deviantart.com/blog/33698704/
The list of themes is below, and following this I think I will post my first one, 'Introduction'. They'll all be different mediums, depending on how I am feeling (read: lazy) but it might give me something to think creatively about.

I hate being sick at the end of the week. Because you end up spending the whole weekend trying to get better, before you launch yourself into another work week. You sort of feel like that you don't get a break to do what you want to do.
Friday night an I am at home on the computer... DORK. I'm sick, but still - not an excuse.
Have been working on the charity project I spoke of a while ago. But that's coming along nicely. Pity the other half of the team actually has a life. I asked them, "Will you have time to chat about this tomorrow night (ie. tonight)?"
Of course the reply was, "Oh, I think I have a big thing with friends, so probably won't be until the weekend."
Of course you have something! It's a Friday night!
I have a big night out planned with another friend of mine, whenever we hear about this whole job thing. They too have found something bigger and better and we're both wanting to celebrate. I just need to get my bigger and better!
Not feeling all the best today, and everything is being filtered through a think haze. Would love to be out doing something in the sunlight but alas, work prevents me from doing that.
I miss taking photos. I haven't done it for a while, and I think I need to get back into it.
Confirmed that we are going to the Gold Coast for Easter, and I am debating whether I organise a trip somewhere else if I am still at *current employer* come the end of June (they have a week shutdown, which means forced annual leave). Last year I think I just stayed around the house (it was so good) and the year before that we were in Thailand.
A new Mac has arrived in our design room, and I am starting to get the feeling that it will be used against us. This is the first position I have been in that we haven't had Macs, and this might be a "you should be grateful" sort of thing.
One of the designers, the one to just go on maternity leave had her baby boy on Thursday - so lots of excitement at the moment. Also, in other news - designer 1 - or the first girl to go on maternity leave resigned on Wednesday and has found a much better position closer to home. So congratulations all around!!
Have decided that I am going to the Gold Coast for Easter this year for a couple of days of R&R with some good friends of ours. Looking forward to it!
I am ready when you are - ready to move on, change, grow, do something, get out of the comfort zone I am in now.
Phone today. Have everything signed off today, with a phone call to follow today - the 4th March. Make the 1st April my last day here.
Time to move on!
I have attempted to write a couple of times over the past couple of weeks, but haven't really gotten around to it. Mainly because I've been lazy - not much else.
Still waiting on the job to come through - they called and asked me to sit tight - "I know it's a bit of an ask, and we know it's taking a long time to go through but we'd love it if you were still available to come work for us when it's all done." Wait a couple of weeks to double my pay and score a job I think I'll ace? No problems buddy, really - as long as it all works out I'm happy to wait. I'm working and am in no hurry (in a financial sense - mental health may be another issue).
Come on universe! Really do want this to go through - don't think I don't!
Work is a bit painful, but not too bad I guess. A couple of people are getting ready to jump ship which I can say I am gleeful about because it means I'm not the only one who is a little over the whole culture of the business.
It's March. Not fair - this year isn't supposed to go so quick. It's going to be an okay year I think from how it's started.
More news soon hopefully.
