wpid-pict_20150501_171010.jpg I am getting quite sick of the weather situation currently plaguing the east coast of Australia. I've spent the past few days slightly cold and damp (despite using an umbrella) and there's not much I can do about it (actually, apart from not leaving my house ever, there isn't anything I can do about it.)

Apart from the weather being a bit dark, dank and dreary, this weekend has been quite fun. I had a rehearsal with Vanishing Shapes Friday and Saturday, which was split up by watching Bin Juice play the last Lass gig of their residency, and seeing dave take their spot.  (dave are such a cool band, but their band name is actually the worst, not because it isn't freaking cool, but because a quick google search churns up so many unrelated things/people with the name dave :s)

I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but my band is taking this month off gigging to write new music. We have so many half finished pieces / ideas which we haven't been able to fully realise because we've had to get our set really tight. I'm really looking forward to playing our new stuff :D

This is the outfit I wore Friday. I don't really have much to say about it except it made me feel super cute (but then again, what outfit doesn't make me feel super cute?)

On a practical note, I wouldn't normally wear these shoes with this sort of outfit, but I decided that it was more important for my feet to be dry and comfy than for my shoes to completely go with my outfit. (Does this mean I get some adult points?)

Pastle Icecream

wpid-pict_20150413_164935.jpg Today has been a little bit bad (I did the 5 more minutes (which turned into 3 more hours)and then I'll wake up thing. Thank goodness I didn't have anywhere to be!)  and a little bit good (After hours of googling and email, I think I finally get how to do a case study analysis in reference to a creative subject)

Quite a few of my favourite bloggers have been wearing pastel clothing the last few days, and it put me in a pastel kind of mood. It's hard to tell in this photo, but I've got 4 different pastel hues going on (mint blue and purple in the shirt, waffle cone yellow and mint green in the skirt). I've basically been walking around campus feeling like an icecream/fairyfloss/piece of cake all day, which has been super fun.

As well as studying, I also had to get a new student card today. 2 weeks ago I somehow managed to loose my student card, and I finally had some spare time to replace it. No more paying full fare for me! (I had to do it for 2 weeks. It sucked big time.)

Adult Christmas.

wpid-c360_2014-12-14-19-04-54-753.jpg The older I get the less time/ cares I have for christmas. Don't get me wrong, I still really enjoy Christmas time with all the decorations, and celebration (not the music. I. Hate. Christmas music with a passion) but, it seems to have lost a lot of the magic it had as a child.

I've been having "Adult Christmas" feelings for 4 or 5 years now, but I suppose the revelation has been more evident this year due to me having my first "Adult Birthday" (ie, having a celebration was fun, but a little bit of a chore, rather than very exciting, like it  has been pretty much all my life(I still enjoyed it, but it was just another ordinary day))

I think the other reason it feels less exciting this year is because putting up the tree was a little bit of a chore. My family and I kind of grumped the tree together, rather than exciting the tree into existence.

I love how it turned out though!

We've never put a tree up this late. Even last year, when we were insanely busy, the tree still went up in the first week of December.  It feels a lot more like Christmas and the end of the year now its up. I just kind of wish it was still magic.

I'm going to leave you with photos of me snuggling my dogs (much to their annoyance (They're too cute not to snuggle!))
