Merry Christmas
I tried my best to have a good day. It was pretty decent, apart from when my sister tried to throw fly spray at me.
I have decided, she's not mentally ill, (Well she is, I accept this fully, she does not). She's just a brat, and I am done with it. I am going to join a support group, and if that does not suffice, I will make my own, there is surely the market for one these days. 'Siblings that are over 'mental illness' white elephant and just want to get the fuck on with there lives'. STAOMIWEAJWTGFOWTL. Hmmm, that has a nice ring to it.
Well anyway, in another note, here's what's been going down.
Graduation was fucking amazing, I loved it.

2. As was the Parade.
3. Queensland baby!
4. The day of my birthday, having cake at work.
5. Sydney

Top 5 Albums
1. Say Anything- In Defense of the Genre. Fuck this album simply blows my mind.
2. Coheed and Cambria- . I think it came out late '07, but I only bought it this year. So glad I did.
3. Less than Jake- GNV FLR. It's not amazing, but kills the pitfull previous release.

Blogging again

I thought I better fill in some blanks. I have alot of free time up my sleeve these days.
I finished Uni over two weeks ago, and haven't wrote in this thing in agessss.
I am feeling SO much better than now I've finished. No stress!
I'm not that ready to get a grad job yet, but if I haven't found one by March, thats when I'll start to panic. No Delta Goodrem Syndrome* here!
I've had a look around, and my mind needs to work out what it wants to do. Or my dream job needs to appear.
I think I need to re-asses my goals, and make plans.
Right now I have holiday plans. In no particular order I wish to-
-Catch up on Tv on DVD.
-Pay a large chunk of my credit card off. I haven't many shifts so this has been delayed. Tear.
-Catch up with friends. I seem to have lost a few this year. But some are just as awesome!
-Make clothes. 1st start, bathers.
-Make a kick-ass resume and business crap with cool graphics.
-Make Xmas cookies. Though I really don't feel like spreading the love at my place of work these days.
-Get Fit. Fashion makes you fat people!
-Make my america scrap book. It's only been 15 months!

Well that is my plan on non-action for the next chunk of my life before joining the adult world.

NB-* Delta Goodrem syndrome is the name I give for Gen Y feeling the intense pressure to succeed, ie, Career, House, Travel, Marriage, etc. at such a young age. Slow the fuck down kids! We've got our whole lives ahead of us.

Letter I cut and pasted

Dear Miss Simone
I thought I’d type you up a letter seeing as I’m not doing anything else. It’s 10:40 on a Saturday night and I’m doing nothing. It’s pretty sad. I’m not sure how it came to this but at least I am not wasting money and absorbing Kilojoules of beer. I got a heap on new music today so I will share with you. You might not dig it, but It will kill some time non the less.

How is sunny Queensland treating you? And the traineeship?  I think it’s a good thing what you’re doing, very character defining, something to tell your kids about one day. But as we were saying, you still get to have a life of your own .Speaking of lives, I really got to get one. I am going to turn into a hermit in a minute.It would be really cool if you came down. We could go and have a bit of a gig and ‘make out with babes’ and our wardrobes would double for the week.

I’m not sure what else to tell you. I think I told it all on the phone. I really wish I was in the states right now, everyone that went back to camp keeps writing about it on facebook, it’s depressing.

This letter is not going to be that uplifting, I’ll try to lift the mood.
I think I need some more good in my life, but only I can change that. Uni is such a drainer, I don’t think I could work at a place like Stussy for long. But yeah, the parade in September should be hella exciting, hopefully my work gets in the Herald Sun or something like that. That would rule

I am listening to City and Colour right now. Dallas! This music is just so amazing, Its not just because its Dallas of Alexis and he’s so pretty, because we play this CD and work, and my friend Shannon, who listens to Silverchair and Nova and the like, fell in love with it the first time she heard it and but it today. Well yes that’s a bit of random info for you!

Well I am beginning to ramble, so all I will say is I miss you like a limb, I can’t wait to we get to hang out again, and go for drives, my car misses you, and seeing as I don’t have a life we can take your parents out again!! Ha ha that was a good night. You’re lucky they’re pretty cool. I hope you’re doing ok in Yandaran, you have your fan club there, its always good when people dig your shit.  See you soon I hope
Love Eloise

June 13th

Was the day I flew out to the States last year.
I think of that trip at least weekly. I miss my friends, camp and the places I saw.
I want to be anywhere but the cold winter of Melbourne.
I am hoping this is the main influence of my shitty mood lately. I am so snappy and for anyone near me I applogise. I need to tackle uni with a new angle in order to get my piece of paper and get out of there. Someone take this bad mood away from me.

Semester One

Is over. Well studio is anyway.
I can honestly say, that it was one of the hardest times, and there is more to come.
I am wrecked.
But after today I know it is worth it. I just need to catch up on sleep.
I have never been so alone during a semester. I needed someone to talk to more than ever, but have had the least contact with my friends.
Losing a best friend wasn't as hard as I imagined, not as sharp an instant as break-up. Will it be this way forever? Who knows, I don't know why it is yet, but I know I don't want to attempt to patch things up just yet. Negativity and a lack on understanding is not needed right now.
For the first time, ( with exception to my mum), I am truely a lone sole doing it by myself.

One of the best days this year.
My little Simoney had moved back here, may her Grandad Rest in peace.
See you soon Simone, won't be long.

Its been a massive week. And I'm not ready to collate and blog yet.
But on another rant, I am over the oborrant sexism that exists in my life.
Firstly, I truly believe, had the Kate Moss', Amy Winehouse, and Co been Male, they would be not getting far as much scrutiny. For example, musicians that battled drug addictions, such as Johnny Cash and Ray Charles, have now had these pursuits glorified in film. Where is the Dusty Springfield film??

And secondly, my car is broken. Guys at work find this amusing and belittle me. If I was a male, they would be asking me whats wrong and suggesting places to get it fixed.

I'm not sure exactly what I can do to change these attitudes, but for now, I'd like to whinge.

I don't care for your opinions. I didn't ask for them.
This may sound like double standards, but I DIDN'T ASK.
Yes, I know I have a degree, and yes, I know I can't work at JB all my life, but really, did I ask you?
I am quite content leading my life of leisure. My time will come, yes it will, and please do not judge me.
This goes for many people, people who may not be as happy as I, or in my position, age or qualifications.
Please keep your opinions to yourself.

Big Day Out

Big Day Out
Was fabulous. I can't pinpoint why exactly, nothing standout, just a tops day overall. From the Top..

1)In the days leading up I was more pumped then I've ever been.

2) The Dress I made 11pm the night before actually turned out and looked good.

3) We got there early, got more bang for our buck, as they say.

4) I wasn't watching my phone waiting for the 3rd day for a shitty boy to call back.

5) Adam and I didn't piss each other off too much.

6) I mastered beer drinking this year-SO much cheaper. And tougher.

7) Linking arms and swaying violently side to side to Silverchair is funner than it sounds. Daniels new stage persona left me confused though.

8) Catching most of the acts I wanted to see. Operator Please, Anti Flag, Enter Shikari, Arcade Fire, Silverchair, Bjork, Brand New, LCD Soundsystem then finally Rage.

9) Phone Reception this year!!!!

10) Ballet dancing to LCD... Best part of the day, good company.

11) I finally had a Dagwood Dog for the first time. Yes it met all my expections of Carny food and dazzled my tastebuds.. Ha ha.

There were some downsides to the day, mostly getting home and getting dusty, but most definately the best big day out ever.

And the press is full of shit, I was well organised.

Wow its been a while.

So I thought I better update this.
This blog is fairly emo, mostly ramble about some dick of a guy who I didn't really dig in the first place. I could also ramble about how I met the man of my dreams, who took about a week to ditch me when I went to the states. But no, I'm actually feeling pretty good these days.
Still not to clear on the career front, work is starting to get old, their lack of consistency and loyal is disheartening and I am just about done. Which is good, I'm glad I came back, but I need to get a grad job.
I think I need to revise my new years resolutions.

- Re-invested time in friends, cut off those that don't invest in you.
- Lose America weight.
- Work out what I'm doing with my life. No pressure though, I'm sure alot of people think this.
- Become a netball and tennis pro.
- Re-gain the crazy Eloise.
- Buy one CD a week.
- Make something at least once a fortnight.
