Oh dear, it seems it's been as many days as I am years old since my last post here... oh well. Here I am again, and better than ever!!
Well, certainly, much has happened since my last post, and ALL of it good, I must say.
I won't go through all of it, because, like I said, it's over two weeks of shit and merryness, so I will start with last Wednesday which was O-WEEK OH!FIVE
Day 1 (of three).
For those of you unawares, I'm going to USYD this year, and they start their years off with an orientation week, like most Universities I know about. They call their's O-Week... dunno why - it isn't like it makes sense or anything. Anyway, hydeist_
and I decided to go together, and there was the possibility of meeting someone else, but that never happened. So, we got our free breakfast of the second best bacon and egg roll I've ever had and some weird square!bottle of juice that wasn't half bad, sat down under the big tent, and while we were waiting for me to finish (because I only decided to get mine after hydeist_ had already finished his), Tim from Big Brother got up on stage and introduced us to the day and the day to us. After that, hydeist_ and I went around to all the stalls for all of the clubs and societies they have to offer... and I MEAN
all. I joined the Musical Society which is actually just a big ol' choir, and Techno Zen, which is... well, not even the stall runners really knew what it was, but I only joined for the Power!Socks, so it's all good. And, because I joined, so did hydeist_.
Once we'd gone through everything, via everywhere and past everyone at least three times, including the Buffy Society, we decided to enter the iPod Nano contest, received $30 of free iTunes downloads, went and explored some more, then left. We decided to go to the City for some well earnt shopping, which will be especially needed now that we are going to be studying everyday for the next 4 years in MUFTI!!!!arg. So we shopped for a while, and though I found the all-but perfect pair of jeans in terms of style, length and waist size, they were just slightly too snug for my liking, if you get what I mean *wink wink*. So I ended up only getting one shirt and a CD while hydeist_ was there. However, after he was called away, I went back to the Galleries Victoria to look at some things I'd seen and promised myself I'd go back to to look at. I found them again, and this time tried them on, but realised that they made me look even thinner than I am (and for those of you who have never seen me, I am a 178cm, 48kg 18 year old, and am often mistaken for a broom handle), so I didn't get them. But I consoled myself with a DVD that I'd been looking for for a while, and drowned my sorrows in one of those Brekky To GoGo smoothies from Boost Juice
(and DAMN! Can you taste the muslie or what
?)... then I went home =D
When I got home I found out that my sister had gotten her Ps that morning. YAY!NESS! (She only just had her first solo drive last night, picking me up from work.) Also, I got my timetable for Uni, and found out that it completely sucked arse. Seriously, my little pineapples, it was screwed to teh moooon!
On Thursday, I had work... YAY! =D
On Friday, I went to Uni to see if I could get the horribleness out of my stupid timetable, and, guess what I couldn't! Yay for me! [/death!sarcasm] Apparently, the computer that gave me my times just expected me to attend two separate lectures at once, on two separate days! Bah! Silly computer! Don't you know of my anti-grav abilities?!?! Blasphemer! So really, I had just stood in a queue for an hour for absolutely NOTHING!grrr. I actually ended up having to change my enrolement, swapping a class I only sort of wanted for a class I previously couldn't get, so it wasn't too bad. Plus, now I don't have a 5 hour break between 11am and 4pm, just a 3 hour between 11am and 3pm... oh well, it could be worse. On my way home from that boring and almost hellish experience (seeing as the hour in the queue had been spent outside in the blazing sun), I decided once again to go looking for some more consolling consolation music. I went in to Broadway's HMV and was just looking around, when one of the guys from the store turns to me and says "Hey!" in one an unusual way. I'm not sure if it was just one of those heaped-on friendlyness kind of greetings that we as sales assistants are made to make, or if it was an "Oh, hey! I know you!", or if it was of the "Helloooo. How YOU
doin'?" kind. I responded with a nice "Hi" and he disappeared, so I went on looking...and just guess what I found... Panic! At The Disco!!!!!!w00tness!!!!! I think I will be eternally grateful for my good friend Kaz sending me one of their songs and technically being the one to get me hooked on them. So I bought it (even though it was way over priced at $36! But seeing as it was an import and Kaz told me it apparently wasn't in Australia yet, I thought I should hop on it and grab me some disc), and I was served by the same guy that said "Hey!" - again, he was reeaally nice to me, smiling the whole way through and stuff. He even asked
me if I needed a bag, instead of just assuming like "they" usually do, so I thought to myself "Hmm, this guy is either world-health-conscious, or he is smart enough to realise I'm wearing a bag... either way, it's a good sign of intelligence and good nature". Once I had bought it, on my way out of the store, I noticed the DVD of Labyrinth
for like $15 I think it was, and I had just been thinking about it "the other day" so I thought I had to get it. I went back and the guy was still there at the counter, but he wasn't looking ('uz he was serving someone else by then, and was looking at his computer screen) so some other guy served me. I was half expecting an "Oh hey, you're back pretty quickly" or something similar, but I guess he didn't see me. One the sale had gone through, the guy that served me shoved the DVD in a plastic bag and gave it to me EVEN THOUGH I WAS OBVIOUSLY WEARING A BAG ALREADY!!! and I wished the other guy had served me again, though now more for the world-health-consciousness side of the situation rather than the "oh hey, you're back quickly *insert much laughter here*" side. Then I went home... =D
Saturday I worked, as I did on Sunday.
Then, today, I had my first lecture at Uni! Yay. It was my music subject and its the only one I have on Mondays for first semester. It was pretty good, though I was there 30mins early and I was worried I was at the wrong place because the building was named incorrectly on my timetable (which I didn't know until I got there and I was all WTF?! where do I go now?). Fortunately for my wallet, nothing bad happened today, so I didn't need musical consolling, though I will need to get my textbooks tomorrow... and the lines are fucking HUGE!ness-and-a-half for both the Co-op Bookshop and teh Copy Room.
Oh well, tomorrow will be good, and I will be able to use my four hour break to stand in line for both my books and hydeist_'s (really, I'm just checking how much they will cost there, seeing as we will have a 25% discount if we join soon enough). Yay for too much spare time.
Oh, and I HAD MEXICAN FOR DINNER!!!YAY!!!!
Now, I think I'll leave you with the lyrics to one of my new favourite songs, called Lying Is The Best Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off
:( Lying... )
