HI THERE

God knows if anyone will read this post or if anybody will even remember this blog exists. It’s been five months, that’s a pretty dayum long time. I feel terrible and I miss blogging so very much :( my existence has just been absolutely swamped lately and I have not completed so many things I want to complete.

I plan to post again soon (I hope) but long story short: my career as a graphic designer, at this stage, will most likely never actually happen so I was pressured by my family to enrol in a post-graduate education course. I was incredibly nervous and apprehensive, but what the hell? I’m actually enjoying it =/ weird. Well, maybe not that weird, I was, after all, a complete nerd in high school. Anyhow, a brand called SWAYCHIC kindly sent me this dress like three weeks ago and I’ve been so damn busy, I had to squeeze editing these images during my time on placement these last two days. I even got in trouble for being on my laptop in class :( and cried :( :( but I felt terrible and I was almost certain the lovely people at Sway Chic were going to turn into monsters and kill me because of how delayed my images were. Not really monsters, but you know what I’m saying… I basically just felt really bad. So, sorry guys! I’m sure many of you are familiar with this online store, they have pretty cool stuff for very affordable prices.

My god, it was a nightmare trying to shoot such a lovely floral dress whilst it’s pouring, gloomy, dark and freezing in Melbourne right now, plus, I have like zero summery clothes right now… so I basically struggled, but I think I did an alright job considering. Anyway, the dress is super ca-ute! If you’re interested, check it out here.

Anyway, must go pass out from exhaustion. TTYL.

I’m soooooo effing tired right now, like my eye lids are drooping south so I’m going to keep the text part of this post super short. Kewl Ego and Greed shoes worn thanks to my fav online store Solestruck who the shit doesn’t like hologram these days?

CAN NOT HANDLE

I can’t deal with heat, it sucks the life out of me. I’m sitting here, feeling sticky, drained and generally disgusting. Mm, so nice. Good thing I have so many photos to update you all on, because warm weather does not exactly inspire me to dress very well.

Nothing to report today, other than apparently some customer made a complaint about me at work. Apparently I rolled my eyes at her and was “huffing and puffing” LOL, like I would be stupid enough to EVER do something like that at work. I hate people, and I especially hate people who actually make complaints about sales assistants. I have been served by some people who were actually straight up rude and kind of evil to me, but I never thought, “hmm, I’m going to make that low paid worker’s day even worse and possibly have them fired”. I mean, seriously? UGH. I was planning another huge text post but I’m actually tired right now. Weird… it’s only 11.59PM.

INTERRUPT THE REGULAR

Hi there. Hello, What’s up? G’day. Yo, whatevz, what’s the happs? How are you? Gooood? Yeah, me too, well you know, could be better, but heeey, first world, can’t complain aye?

Okay then, now that the awkward postponed internet greeting has been dealt with, I shall get back to my regular blogging flow. Well, not quite yet. First, I’m going to congratulate the United States of America for electing Obama as the president once again. Thank you. I’ve been thinking about possibly moving to the U.S (specifically L.A) lately, and if Mitt Romney won… well, I would definitely have to reconsider.

Greeeaat, my left hand is currently falling asleep. How convenient, I have a feeling this is the result of typing and how cold my hands are at the moment. ANYWAY.

Speaking of American elections. I stumbled across this article about a bunch of ill informed American citizens who would like to move to Australia because Barack Obama will be the president for another term. I found it fucking hilarious. I was going to go on and on about why this idea is incredibly stupid, but I think this graphic I found sums it up quite well.

Yes, that’s right mofos. We have universal health care, and I’m pretty damn cerain we (most of us, other than a few crazy people) all like it. In fact, this year the Medicare levy was raised for those earning above a certain amount of money per annum. I think it’s about $84,000+ for singles, and guess what? There was no uproar, no talk about fucking death panels (uuuuuuuugh) in fact, most people working in Health care thought it was a good thing. I don’t understand how a country can truly consider themselves modern without universal health care to be honest. Health care should be the NUMBER ONE priority in my opinion, that and education. I’m so so so soooo glad we have Medicare. Sure, it’s definitely not perfect, but thanks to Medicare I have been hospitalised multiple times without having to worry about money. I received the best care from a damn Professor of Cardiology and I did not pay a cent.

The whole education deal in the U.S freaks me out too. I’m going to be honest here, I don’t know much about how the system works. All I know is, when I was on exchange, my friend and I didn’t have to pay for tuition in Buffalo because our CSP (Commonwealth Supported Place) was covering the cost, as it usually would at Monash. For a semester the money was given to UB instead. We, as international students, didn’t have to pay tuition to attend an American University, but the local students had to pay, WTF?! No really, what is up with that? Lastly, most of us think the whole ‘right to bear arms’ crap is a pointless load of bullshit. I hate guns.
