I’ve had such a crazy week! After receiving the news that I won’t be returning to high school, I have started at college so that I can get my diploma in Journalism! I have only had my orientation day so far, which gave me an insight into how I’m going to be spending this year. The people i’ve met so far have been nothing but lovely to me. Eases my mind a bit as I can be quite anxious and shy when I meet new people.
I love travelling into the city everyday for college. Since I want to live in New York when i’m older, this is really giving me a taste of the city vibe.
Spent a lot of my hard earned (thankyou Gloria Jeans) money today. I bought a vintage denim skirt which I wasn’t too keen on at first, but the more I contemplated buying it the more it grew on me. I’m actually really glad I did, because I received lots of compliments on it, plus it matches with my new One Teaspoon ’Jagger’ tee quite nicely. I bought a nice new fuzzy jacket, some Peter Alexander PJ’s, and lots of American Apparel clothes. I was so happy when I saw that there was an American Apparel set up in the Myer in the City. I usually have to buy all of my American Apparel clothes online and wait 2-3 weeks for it to be delivered. I bought two stripey tops, a leafy print crop shirt, and an extremely cute black denim circle skirt.
I’ve pretty much got my wardrobe prepared for Winter. I’m ordering some more clothes online tonight from Style Nanda which I’m extremely excited about! I can’t wait until I can get some ‘Outfit of the Day’ (OOTD’s) up for you guys.
My week was made when I heard that:
1. Millions are releasing a new album
2. Millions are doing a tour
3. That tour is with the Jungle Giants
4. Ball Park Music are releasing a new album
5. Ball Park Music are doing a tour
It’s like the musical heavens came together and decided that two of my favourite bands should release new music and perform it live at my favourite venue, the Metro Theatre. Can’t wait!
I have been stopping in at Mary St Cafe at least twice a week, and theres no better place to spend my lunchtime at. I usually sit out in the courtyard when its sunny. I tend to only have the change from my train ticket money when I visit, so I only get a drink. I always seem to go for the summery drinks, which seems appropriate since whenever I’m there its really hot. One of the guys that work there recommended the mixed berry frappe and it easily became one of my favourites. Another drink I really loved was the Summer juice, I tend to get that every time now.
I visited Mary St Cafe today with mum. She always hears me talking about it, and I was just dying to show her. When we arrived it was crazy. We had arrived in the peak time for lunch. The guys said that we could eat out in the courtyard if there were any spare places to sit. We walked past the inside seating area, down the narrow hallway, past the window to the kitchen, past the bathroom/garden, and out to the tiny courtyard filled with all different tables, chairs, mirrors, and knick-knacks. Mum instantly fell in love with its quirkiness. I grabbed a gluten free nachos, which was topped with tomato salsa, mint, avocado, mustard and lemon. All of those different flavours came together to make a crazy good dish. Mum got the zucchini fritters with a leafy green salad topped with mustard, she just loved her meal.
Overall, this week has been a hectic one. Met some new people, bought some new clothes, redoing my room, starting at a new school. It’s only February and I can tell 2014 is going to be one of my favourite years so far!
