1. I have a terrible will power.
No matter how hard I try or want something I am a shocker when it comes to keeping promises to myself. I have no one else to blame but myself and it disgus
ts me that I cannot stick to things that should be easy like cleaning the kitchen. Strang
e though - give me 6 years of university study and I'm your gal.
2. I used to be a flight attendant.
I only did it for 6 months while I was in my final year of university and it was a nightmare coordinating flight schedules and classes. I flew for a Regional Australian airline on the Dash series - where you are sometimes the only flight attendant. I found it similar to working in a bar but with heels and and much less sleep. The most glamourous part was having a pilot offer to put your suitcase in the hold for you or wheeling your suitcase around the terminal (for all of about 3 minutes!)
3. I love musicals.
I don't know if this is such a surprise. And it's not just any musical - give me Rodgers and Hammerstein and Gordon McRae any day. Deep down all I want is a strong man to sort out money and a house and for me to feel looked after and then for him to burst into song and whisk me around the lounge room in some choreographed number. Disgustingly anti-feminist I know. It won't happen but I can dream about it.
4. I have a linen problem.
This has a little to do with my will power but I cannot stop buying linen's. Not just any linens but beautiful damask and embroidery. I see them in the shop and think that some lovely person has spent hours working on it and it's so sad that it's now not treasured by anyone.
5. I love reading Patrick O'Brien
Naval books really do it for me. I think I have a huge crush on Jack even though he is almost everything I despise in a man - cheating and ungrateful - he has this strange sense of loyalty and fairness that I find in myself.
I hat confrontation with anybody - people at the supermarket in my personal space, people who push in the queues, restaurant who mess up my order. But the flip side is that a have a hot temper so most of the time I just make a horrible face and simmer away for the rest of the day - I have a hard time letting go.
I studied music composition at the Sydney Conservatoiurm for my undergraduate degree and have note so much as written a single note since I left. I feel like I was a bit of an imposter while I was there, as writing for me was not because I had to but because I was good at it. I want to write something but maybe I'm just afraid that what will come out is not "right" or "good" but I should get over myself and give it a go.
Now at the end of the post of Lobster and Swan everyone who read the post was asked to post 7 things about them so I will do the same. Please link to your post in the comments section so I can find about more about you!
To make this post a bit more interesting I have included some random photographs of myself and various people.
