I’m Alive!

Holy moly! It has been way too long since I’ve wandered into the blogosphere. In case you were wondering — I am alive, thanks for your concern.

I have been back at Uni for semester two of my postgraduate course. It has stepped up a notch and I feel like I am struggling to keep up. Everyone else is so smart and experienced, and then there’s dinky old me just sitting there. I don’t know if I’ll make it through this semester, but damn it I need to try! I struggled with my last assignment and I’m determined not to let that happen again for the next one. So with Uni taking hold of my life once again, I’ve not made time for this space, which I miss dearly. I have so many posts I’ve been meaning to write since July (yikes!).

Unfortunately, my beloved phone also crapped out on me last night. It’s stuck in reboot loop hell and I couldn’t figure out a way to fix the problem. The guy at the phone store doesn’t think it’s worth bothering to fix since it’s almost two years old, so I’ve bought a new phone to get by for now. I’ve not backed up my photos since mid-August and I’m so sad that they’re all lost now. Lesson learned though: always back-up your stuff! Hopefully I’ll be able to get out there with my new phone and test out its camera soon, but for now you can check out my Instagram feed for what I’ve been up to lately. Blog posts will be coming up soon!

Hope you’ve been well and that the world has been kind to you.

Jurassic Lounge: Robots vs Dinosaurs

OMG you guys! Have you ever heard of Jurassic Lounge?! I haven’t. But when I learned the theme was ‘Robots vs Dinosaurs’, I promptly squealed with excitement and then bought tickets to go with Super Boy (poor guy, getting dragged to all these weird events with me). I’ll be honest though, I missed most of the stuff going on that night because I was way too happy dancing at the Silent Disco! We did manage to check out the Spiders exhibit beforehand and watched a tarantula being milked for her venom, which was awesome. Here are a few snaps from the night.

That’s my creepy hand silhouette from painting with light. Anyway, although I missed most of the Robots vs Dinosaurs stuff, I still had an amazing time and saw some pretty neat costumes too. I’m hoping to return to the Australian Museum for next year’s Jurassic Lounge, and try to do more than dance the night away!

Taking Stock: June 2017

With my final Uni assignment of the semester out of the way, I feel like I can finally catch up with things online and in real life. Honestly, it felt like I was holed up forever, but in reality it was only two or three weeks. This month was a pretty laid back affair and nothing of note really springs to mind. So, let’s try to remember what I got up to in June…
