lol been super mia lately, but gonna try and catch up as much as I can in this post.
Sleepover w/ Meera and Anahita
Meera and Anahita decided to come and sleep over a while ago (Lauren couldn't cause she was someplace), so they did lol. Sort of decided to do a whole round of sleepovers at each others' houses cause we hadn't caught up in a while.
We pretty much did the same sort of stuff as we did at Meera's; heeeeaps of board games, youtube vids and LOL filmed Ways to Die and actually ended up with a whole video.
On The 8th of Jan, I decided to go over to Diem's house for some reason. Basically just spent the whole day chatting and baking cookies. Also spent ages researching the degrees that we wanted to do and different majors.
On the 11th, we went over to Oma's new place since she'd just moved in and needed some help setting up computers and stuff. Also went to her old place to pick up some stuff.
and people say my room is messy
On the 15th, I went out to the city with Diem, Sonja and Charlotte for bowling and lunch since Charlotte had just arrived home. While we were bowling we met up with Dylan who just happened to be in the city, and played another game with him.
After we were done there Dylan left and we went straight to lunch at Pancake Manor then just shopped around a bit.
On the 16th, QTAC offers came out (also Daniel got home from Japan lol)!
Was stuck outside the website for ages before I could get in since there were so many people online, but ended up making my first preference! Was so great cause almost everyone I talked to ended up getting what they wanted as well :) :)
That night I went and slept over at Anahita's. Played a load of Risk, watched TV, baked these amaze caramel cupcakes and just chatted heaps :)
LOL played Pictionary and I actually can't even with some of these.
When Daniel got home from Japan, he brought me these cute Jap dolls :)
Also been doing heaps of driving practice lately omglob as of today I have about 19 hours left to do.
|found this picture of me driving Oma's old Beetle in her house hhehehe :)|
|tried reverse parking lul|
In that time somewhere, I got a job teaching piano! Spent a lot of the next week attending training sessions for how to teach/teacher meeting so I could start working.
On Wednesday (22nd), I went out to UQ with Diem for pretty much no reason LOL. Originally we planned on going to this Getting Started session, but once we got there we were like nahhh so ended up just walking round, looking at a few textbooks that we needed and getting lunch. Also went to school to pick up my magazine. LOL they had the weirdest picture of Diem, Sonja and I on the Mackay page.
On Thursday (23rd), I met up with Thalia for lunch! When we were little we were like really good friends but I actually hadn't seen her in years, until she messaged me on Tuesday and we decided to catch up. Went to Pancake Manor then just shopped around, and it was really nice seeing her again :)
On Friday the 24th, I went to Bundaberg with my mum and Daniel! We pretty much just went there to help grandma and Laurie pack up their stuff since they're planning on moving to Rockhampton once grandma's done with her chemo.
We originally planned on going up by train, but some truck hit a bridge or something and the trains weren't running, so we ended up having to go by bus. Bus ride took like 6 hours with a quick stop at Matilda, and by the time Laurie picked us up from Bundaberg station it was pretty late.
It was actually their anniversary the day we got there, but since we got there so late we decided to go out for dinner the next night after we'd packed heaps during the day. Went out at the Bundaberg Brothers' club and while there played some pokies with grandma and actually won like over $20 woooooooo
Pretty similar stuff the next day. Went out for lunch at The Waves, played more pokies, won more $$$ LOL getting pretty pro. We had dinner at Sizzler and when we got home the Australian Open finals were on which we then watched. :'( for nadal
Found so much stuff while packing, including heaps of old photos. Since they're downsizing, they also let me have heaps of stuff like this teacup set which I used to see in the cabinet every time I went and always thought was so nice.
On Monday we left in the morning and caught the train back to Brisbane!
|LOL MY DAD|
|Grandma and Laurie's wedding :')|
Once we arrived back in Brisbane, I got ready for Jess's surprise 18th! I was a bit late to the party so I missed the surprise, bu the night was still really fun :) :)
Probs gonna end this post there cause it's getting pretty late now, but hopeeeefuuulllllly I'll be able to finish my catch-up tomorrow!
