Taking Stock: March 2017

Yikes this is late! I hope you can forgive me since instead of blogging I spent most of April madly typing away at my first big postgrad assignment, as well as lamenting at the fact I had to write my first 3000 word essay since 2007. Anyway, let’s remember March shall we? March was pretty rad. I managed to have some sort of social life (in real life), attend classes regularly (and on time) and got my health back on track too (woo!). Nothing special happened, but nothing disastrous happened either. All in all, a good month!

Making: nothing at all this month (again).

Cooking: a spicy beef meatball, beans and vegetable stew. I also made pesto for the first time ever with home-grown basil.

Reading: nothing but journal articles for postgraduate work. There goes my intention to read more books this year…

Playing:Paris‘ by The Chainsmokers, ‘Fresh Eyes‘ by Andy Grammer, ‘Shape of You‘ by Ed Sheeran (still) and ‘I Don’t Wanna Live Forever‘ by Zayn and Taylor Swift (still). Also still making my way through ‘The Awkward Human Survival Guide‘ podcast.

Enjoying: the tour of the Sirius Building. It’s such a beautiful building and I highly recommend a visit! I also enjoyed the brief walk through The Rocks Markets afterwards.

Sorting: out my car service and road toll tag.

Wondering: what to grow in our vegetable gardens now that Autumn has arrived.

Waiting: for nothing in particular.

Deciding: to finally build that IKEA shelf. It took longer than expected, but looks darn good.

Wishing: for a bit of extra motivation to get things done.

Liking: weekend hang-outs at The Bestie’s with anime, games and pizza.

Disliking: having to prove that I’m a “domestic student” despite submitting all forms of ID requested during my Uni application.

Considering: taking The Parents to some sort of event or outing, but nothing’s come up that they’ll really enjoy.

Watching: an anime called ‘Death Note‘ and the movie ‘Looper‘ which was really good.

Marvelling: at all the basil that’s been growing. Dad’s not a fan, but I think it adds a nice touch of green to the garden, plus it attracts all the bees!

Wanting: to get good grades for Uni.

Needing: to de-clutter the house again. Where does all this stuff come from!?

Following: random footpaths around UNSW as I explore the campus after class.

Noticing: that the plants in the front garden could do with a prune.

Knowing: that I shouldn’t be comparing myself to others.

Thinking: about past events too much.

Buying: some new clothes and shoes from ASOS, as well as some second-hand books (I can’t resist!) and tickets to see David O’Doherty!

Getting: an itch to play an MMORPG and signing up to Guild Wars 2. I might be addicted.

Admiring: the tiniest sliver of the moon hanging in the evening sky.

Hoping: that attending a seminar on ‘Essay Writing for Post-graduates’ will help me get back into writing for Uni again.

Loving: my visit to the Museum of Contemporary Art to see the Tatsuo Miyajima exhibition!

Giggling: with my Younger Sister as we send each other silly pictures.

Planning: to procrastinate less this time around with Uni. Not sure how that will turn out…

Feeling: pretty optimistic.

{I started ‘taking stock’ after seeing it over on Meet Me At Mike’s. You can check out the original ‘taking stock’ to find a list or see what others are up to. Let me know if you decide to join in. I’d love to know how your month has been.}

      I’ve struggled to write a 350 word plan for my 3000 word essay XD It doesn’t get easier with age (not for me anyway). But I will try to remain optimistic. Hope your month has been good!
