 Let's see if I can actually make this a quick post for once - I have to get back to work.

I've had a pretty good couple of days, actually - despite the studying. Friday was my usual day at uni, with one exception of a longer music lecture to make up for the ones that got cancelled. I had to skip Indo for it, but it's alright because I have an assignment on the topic covered so I did need to go. Work was pretty uneventful (unlike last week thank goodness), and then I pretty much just wasted my night. I did a little study, but not terribly much.

Yesterday morning it was the teaching job, and I know my life's hectic when I think 'oh I only have to leave at 8am, that's not too early' ...
I'm always a bit 'meh' about actually going to work on Saturdays, but I'm so happy I finally have a job where my mood improves once I'm there. Teaching is so much fun! =D

I decided sometime during my shift to go visit snuggle_monster, just because I could. We ended up chatting for about an hour, about everything and nothing (like usual) which was good. I don't see her nearly as often at uni as I'd like.
Including about exchanges and going overseas in general. All of this got me thinking about how much can change in a year. The Jezabels gig we went to on Wednesday night was almost exactly a year to the date of the Newton Faulkner gig, which was the first time we hung out properly. I also ended up spilling some very personal experiences of mine that night - being ridiculously open even for me. Thinking back now, that was an insane reaction to my gut instinct that we were going to become great friends. Obviously I just knew, but I really did have no idea just how close we'd get.
So much about myself, my friendships and my life has changed, mostly for the better. It was one of those moments where everything was just clear, and I was perfectly happy despite the stress of uni work, and reminded me that even if I don't get my way, there is always something better than can happen.

Once I'd gone out to my car to head home (reluctantly) so I could study, while I was choosing music, she appeared again. Scared the crap out of me, but then she just says 'I wanted another hug - and to tell you that I may not say it enough but I love you.' That completely made my afternoon.

The drive home took forever, what with roadworks and the rain, but I was listening to Newton Faulkner and an hour of that can make me ready to face anything. Unfortunately, when I got home my brain was so not with my work. My tweets from last night/this morning will give you an idea of my success rate.
Although, now, I have 900ish words of this English essay – which is pretty close. It’s only a rough draft, but it’s better than what I had!

The rest of today was awesome. I went to the Disney exhibition with harpisan, and it was incredible. So many pretty drawings, all the story-boarding was amazing. Just, wow. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
We also just got to hang out and talk for the first time in far too long. I am a happy Lauren right now.
I then ended up buying the soundtrack to ‘The Princess and the Frog’ because looking at all the stuff for it and just really wanted the music. So I thought, why the hell not? Love the music in that movie, it’s just fun. Listening now, in fact.

I got home just in time to discover that I’d completely forgotten about my Grandma’s birthday dinner. So that kind of threw my plans of finsihing that draft… I came home early though.
I love my family. We’re loud, and insane, but I love it. I ended up talking about Glee with my older, tough-guy cousin about Glee. For half an hour. He downloads it as the episodes come out – and is not ashamed to like it. Totally made my night.

On that note, I’d really better get going on these assignments. I will either be posting a lot this week (as procrastination) or not at all. We’ll see. For now, good night!
