I am now officially on holidays! This feels like it has been the longest term ever (11 weeks) especially as I had my practicum in the middle of it, Eisteddfod and the Beau is away.
This weekend, my brother is on a surfing trip up North so I have the apartment to myself for the whole weekend. I also do not have to do anything tomorrow apart from a reading a Church but that finishes at 9.30 am.
Here is a list of all the things I want to get done these holidays:
- Paint some part of our apartment - except no one likes the colours I do
- See Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
- Pass me DET interview with flying colours
- Spend some time with my Beau
- Get my tax-return done
- Get all my AMEB notes for students done (I have 13 doing exams - my most ever)
- Finish my reading for university next semester - one subject to go!!!!
- Have my 50s Fair outfit planned
- Spend some time driving wherever I like and looking at Op Shops
- Document through photographs different vintage-inspired outfits I can put together.
- Do all the mending in my mending basket
- Finally complete the curtains for my little brother and sisters playhouse (we're into the second year).
- Have decided on somewhere to have our wedding
- Try a different cocktail every day from my Hollywood Cocktail book.
- Document everything and post about it.
I remember when I was younger I would always keep a journal and a mood board with pictures that inspired me or wrappers/postcards/coasters etc from things I did that I wanted to remember. When I started at uni, studying music composition and got my first apartment, my creativity was channelled into decorating and composing music. It is only now (3 years after finishing uni) that I a feeling the need to keep track of inspiring things and ideas.
I know my blog is a bit all over the shop about what it s about - but I guess that is what life is like at the moment. I have school, personal life, wedding plans, vintage interests, dreams about the future and they don't quite all seem to mesh yet. I know that I do try to keep most of them apart (for example teaching and my personal life) but it would be nice to feel like I can be myself all the time at work.
