I had a post all typed out and ready to send, but it seems Weebly had other plans!
Anyways, it's 2011! Hurrah! The beginning of a new decade. I stayed in last night (like the giant dork I am) and caught up on my sleep, a whole 12hrs of it.
I am now in Inverell, ready to go do the catch up thing with the friends and extended family that have decided to travel home for the holidays. It's nice being away from it all - slowly beginning to lose count of what day it is, and taking my time with everything. I even stopped biting my nails - something I did not intend to do. I think it must be a habit I have while away. When on holidays, I don't do it. Must be a stress thing I think.
I have plans to pass around the presents left over from Christmas, to all the people I didn't see before I went away to Vinifera, mainly the nephews - some of which I think will not even notice the presents I have bought because of bikes and toy guns, etc.
New Years Resolutions... I haven't had any in years and years, so I thought I would make an effort this time around.
1. Half marathon.
2. Oxfam 100km challenge.
3. Travel overseas.
4. Pay off car loan.
5. Attend Young Entreprenurs seminar, and get something out of it.
6. Take dance lessons... not sure which ones yet.
7. Change jobs.
8. Save 50% house deposit.
9. Look into becoming vegitarian.
Only three weeks until Christmas holidays and I am slightly disappointed that it doesn't feel like the 'holiday season'.
Each year I always expect to get the same excitement I used to get when I was a kid. My mum was strict about putting the Christmas tree up at a certain time, so it was always left till only a week before the 25th. But that one week was electric. You could smell Christmas in the air. Now it feels like any other day.
This year, Christmas means travel. It will be a 10hr drive west to visit the family in far north west Victoria, before the 10hr trip back and the 8hr tip north to my parents place. I must be insane. It will be good to see family, and also spend some time doing zero of anything, other than sleeping, shopping, having coffee and swimming. But I wish it would hurry up
Today is one of those days where it feels like I haven't achieved much at all. Actually, it had been one of those days.
Only 3 weeks until Christmas - 3 weeks! It feels like we shouldn't even be discussing it. Almost 2011, almost that time of year where we all start making new years resolutions, and tricking ourselves into thinking that we'll do what we want to do.
At the moment I am ready to pack up and leave - I don't know where I would go, but I would love a change of scenery right now. I think I might go out to Botany after work, and do a walk along the cliffs behind NSW golf course.
The stats on my blog tell me that I have visitors to my site. If you end up reading this - hello strange reader, I hope you are having a good day today. Is your day going okay? If you can gather the energy post a comment. Tell me how you are.
I've been having a rotten couple of days. It feels like the littlest things have been able to trigger me into this downward spiral, making be absolutely miserable.
Work at the moment is quiet. Most of management are out of the office. I have so much work to do, but I have lost all desire to complete it. I think I'm starting to push my luck because come Monday, I know I'll be swearing at myself asking why I didn't get it done.
I have been discussing baby names with one of the women I work with. She's looking for something unusual, a boys name, non-bogan that rhymes well with the middle name she's chosen (which is a family name). Oh she has a long road ahead of her in that department.
Friday night if my favourite night. Not because I go out at all (because I don't), but it's just knowing you have two days off. That feeling of being able to stay up late two nights in a row and sleep in two mornings in a row is a nice feeling.
I probably should be putting my time to good use and at least study. But I really, cannot be bothered.
