So today it was a bit dismal weather wise. Cold and wet. 16 degrees I believe was the forecast for Melbourne. Despite the weather I still walked to and from uni. This morning was really only a drizzle but tonight was a lot windier so apart from my umbrella surviving half a dozen near death blows it was quite lovely walking through the rain! Was in such a good mood I was even singing in the rain! I did soon discover that my shoes are not waterproof though! Hopefully they will dry out ok!
Yesterday as I was walking home Fox (radio) stopped half way through playing a Jessica Mauboy song to be the very first station in Melbourne to play the new Bruno Mars song which is apparently for Breaking Dawn Part One. It's actually, ironically perhaps, called It Will Rain. I really like it. Could be a new obsession coming on. Though I'm trying to work out in my head where in the film they will use it and what will be happening at the time. I'm thinking a Jacob scene... Makes me pretty excited for the Breaking Dawn Part One soundtrack actually. I always love the Twilight film soundtracks. They just get better and better so I have high expectations for the next one! Especially excited to hear the Christina Perri and of course Angus and Julia Stone tracks! Hopefully they shall not disappoint! Will be waiting patiently until the 8th of October unfortunately. Mind you as I think about it and realise that tomorrow is in fact the last day of September and that means that the following day is October.... wow... that's actually extremely close. Scary! Where did September go? Why do all the months just keep disappearing like they have somewhere else to be so quickly?!
I achieved something I'm quite proud of in the last week. I actually completed reading a whole book in one week! A whole one. In. One. Week. Why am I so proud? Well obviously it took me something stupid like six months to read The Time Travellers Wife so it felt super good to get through a book in what is for me in terms of reading books, a super short space of time! The book was Heartless, quite a short one really but it's about a girl who from a young age was troubled and deeply effected by the betrayal of her father and it took her a long time to really grasp that this had effected her so much and how it had driven her to make some not so fantastic life decisions. It was a touching story and it was interesting how the author, Tasma Walton, never used anyones names in the story except for one. Astintina. Which when I think about it I never really got who exactly she was. All the other characters were described with a title such as 'My Beautiful Man' who was one of her love interests. But I would recommend it. It's a good easy read, though at times it does pull on the heart a little and I definitely shed a few tears throughout.
Watched Beauty and the Geek tonight. So glad there is a new series of it on. I just love it! Though I don't know about having the guy 'beauty' on it. It's kind of unfair in challenges like tonight where they had to touch animals and bugs. Of course he will find that easy! All the other Beauty's just shriek and make a big fuss, mind you I don't think you'd catch me attempting such a challenge! I can hardly blame them! The cutest bit is how close Jordan and Lachlan seem to becoming. It's so sweet!
I have a new best friend. Went to Typo and bought a beautiful red buffalo journal. Have been eyeing them off for quite some time now so I finally let myself have it. So I have a new outlet for my best and strangest of thoughts. For all the things I want to say but shouldn't inflict on someone else's ears! I'd recommend a journal! There's something about writing out all those thoughts, like offloading from your shoulders, not quite reformatting your brain but transferring it to the USB and deleting it off the hard drive... sort of.
Super keen for the weekend. Was on a trip last weekend so didn't really get to go home and see the family so I am very keen to do that tomorrow! Definitely missed them all this week!
That's about it from me.... for now...
