Gee golly gosh, I don’t think I’ve had such a weight off my shoulders since I finished the HSC. All of my assessments are done, everything handed in to the best of my rushed-to-finish-do-tutors-really-care-about-word-count standard. I’m reasonably happy, but as always, I won’t really know until the lovely Thursday of December 7th. I am aiming to increase my H1 average to be even more competitive for my transfer, but I have no idea whether or not this is possible / likely. In the mean time, I’ll enjoy thrusting it to the back of my head, like some kind of rusty screw.
In other news, I had a great time during the last few days of the MIAF, and even went to the “exclusive” Closing Party, where I mingled with some of the world’s most exciting artists. Well, by mingled, stood somewhere in a venue near. And most of the best artists were too cool to attend. BUT IT WAS FUN OTHERWISE! I was introduced to the writer / performer of a play that I saw earlier in the year at the Malthouse called ‘Autobiography of Red’ and having nothing else to say, I gushingly lavished him with compliments about it. He just stared at me, and then left. For the next twenty minutes, I wanted to die several times over. Another entry on the rest of that night, and the other incredible productions I saw, later methinks.
My brother arrives from Sydney tonight! He’s staying with me for a week, which is exciting, because after that he buggers off on an around-the-world trip for at least 12 months. I haven’t seen him for 4 months, and I’m not going to see him for at least a year after that. In the space of 12 months, our family dynamic has changed so much that it’s incredible. But it’s all looking positive too, because, at least for me, I know that I’m still growing and evolving as an individual. Would love not to cook though. Maybe I’ll make my brother do that.
Anyway, good luck with exams my fellow bloggy-bloggers, and good luck to any Year 12 students who actually read this – not long to go now!
