ok, i may have forgotten this existed.

It's been such a long time since I have posted a blog, my last post was just after Gisele was born. She's 10 months old now, and can make her way around my bedroom and onto my bed.

I've finished Year 11, top of Biology and possibly Art. My HSC starts in 13 days, so I'm already stressed/preparing.

I'm still taking underwater photos, hoping to get better at it eventually :D

My most recent:

But at least it is finally beach weather so I can do some more underwater shots where there isn't pool tiles for the background...

Anyways, I'm going to try to use this as more of journal like I did before. It's kind of interesting to be able to see what I was thinking about years ago.

Year 10 Formal

very good night.

Sunday, November 15, 2009

5 days until due date.

I don't think I have ever had so many mixed emotions about an event in my whole life.
Although, I am really sick of people asking Mum "Is this your first?" when Allira and I are standing right next to her.
And at least everything is now ready for the baby.

On another note, Mum and Glen finally got married on the 6th of November. The night before was so stressful for everyone, and it was such a relief when everything worked out in the morning.

I also got an underwater camera at the wedding, something I have wanted for almost a year now. It is so much fun to mess around with, and considering my family spends half the Summer at the beach/pool it's going to get so much use...

It's almost time for my year 10 formal, worried that my heels are going to push me over the 6 foot mark. Very hopefully not :)
And in my defense, they are Mum's gold glitter heels, not mine.

Finished with the School Certificate. I'm fairly sure I did well in Science and Maths, but that's about it at this stage.

I'm having lot's of fun with this camera, trying to think of lots of different artsy photos that I can attempt-

Also, 40 days until Christmas, I am so excited. Easily the best day of the year.

new art.

i've decided that if i am going to spend my HSC years being marked on my art, i should start drawing/painting whenever i can.
i'm not sure, but i think i like it...

life is good.
confusing though :)

slow... down...

Last night's ritual was amazing.
I would like to thank Helen, and everyone who made the ritual so special.

The heat of Rose Cottage... the meditation... the halo around the moon... the storm on the horizon... 13 witches in attendance...

It all made for a wonderful night, and I loved being back at the cottage.

It was strange to have some thinking time to myself last night. Usually I feel as though my mind is going a million miles an hour.
Mum's pregnancy...
subject selections (now visual arts, english extension, geography, chemistry, biology and mathematics)...
15 year old soon-to-be-alcoholics (not me of course)...
assignments! bluergh...
broken friendships... and new and improved friendships...

All going around in my mind in a continuous circle. I guess it's frustrating at times, but I need to learn to go 'blank' and just stop.

Art helps though. I had the idea of photocopying a bunch of things that were important to me, and this was the result-

I'd recommend giving it a try, the results can be pretty surprising.

Family barbecue tomorrow, with the grandparents, for Mum's birthday (09/09/09) and Father's Day. And the Newcastle Knights game, which is very important. Yes, I am a rugby league fan. Why do some people get shocked by that? Anyways, this game basically decides whether or not we are in the semi-finals. Very. Important.

Going to make Tiramisu in a bit, be jealous :)
love, x.

I know I haven't blogged in ages, life has been pretty insane around here.

There is Mum, who has just reached the half-way mark, pregnancy-wise. We can hear the baby's heartbeat pretty well now, even though my heartbeat still comes up as either -20 or 200 on the Doppler.

I finished Biology at Uni. I got myself a High Distinction :)
Now I am ready to start all over again with a Uni Chemistry course.

School is dying down at the moment, most of the talk is about what HSC subjects everyone is going to pick. I've decided I want to go to the University of Technology in Sydney to get a 'Bachelor of Forensic Biology in Biomedical Science'. I still don't know what subjects for sure and I am at 15 units, which is 3 more than recommended...
- Advanced English
- Mathematics Extension 1
- Earth and Environmental Sciences
- Biology
- Chemistry
- Visual Arts
- Ancient History

Something tells me I need to cut down on some subjects.

Then there is the holidays, which started this afternoon. I am going away for a few days with friends and hopefully there will be many more get-togethers. And we will finally have the 1950's Murder party which has been planned for ages because Paul needs to use his 'How to Host a Murder Party' kit.

So, excitement all round for my life at the moment.
