roughly half

I was speaking with my degree convener today, who is also my lecturer/tutor for my favourite subject this semester and he said roughly half of the 35 students who start off in first year graduate. Well that narrows down the people competing for jobs.

A sales assistant in Myers today told me that my degree sounds exactly like what Australia needs more of. Yay!

Go Tracy!

A dear friend of mine Tracy Robinson, is making me incredibly proud, she has started selling her digital scrapbooking kits at Scrapbook Elements. Go check them out!

Tracy was one of the people who inspired me so much when I first moved away from Creative Memories, and still today continues to inspire me with her impeccable design and type skills. You can see her work here and here. I am proud to call her my friend now.

I am so happy for Tracy to be embarking on this new venture of not only Digital Scrapbooking but the making of kits as well.

Go Tracy!


Pabbi is off to bridge today. It doesn’t sound very exciting but it is so much. Since Pabbi retired, it has being hard all round but especially hard for him. Days are spent sleeping or drinking. Over the weekend it got especially bad as his thoughts turned sour. Thoughts that none of us were ready for. Mum and him had a good chat and today he is off to his first social event other than work that does not include family since coaching discus probably ten years ago.

Pabbi and I often have our disagreements but today I am proud of him and here is to more Wednesday mornings, when I see him walk out the door, dressed up and saying I am off to bridge, see you this afternoon.

The tide is turning.


Many times, when I am sitting in a lecture at Uni, I nod off for a fraction of a second, before I realise what it is I am doing and force my self to wake up, focus and take notes. But, what happens when you don’t realise what you are doing and don’t wake up? That is what I did this morning in my lecture for Social Context of Asian Business, this is one of my smaller subjects with 66 students registered d but no where near that in the lecture.

I blame it purely on the Green Day and Simple Plan concert last night (it went off except for copious amounts of prepubescent girls screaming). After the period where I truly fell asleep for a minute or two, I struggled to keep my self aware and focused on the lecture on hand. My notes are all over the page, where I have kept writing when I was sleepy or could not focus on where the lines were on the page.

I seem to be in a constant state of sleepiness at Uni, must be all those early starts. Here is to the rest of the semester and trying not to fall asleep in class. (What would my mum say??)
