Marilyn Car Art

If someone would like to do this to my car when it gets a bit more dirt on it....feel free! 
It's much better than what normally happens to a dirty car.

Oh hey there! I'm still alive

I am still kicking!
Just in case you were wondering...which of course you were no doubt. 
I've kinda missed my little space here on the ol' internet.

It's been an interesting couple of months full of highs and lows.
I have literally become a space cadet. If something isn't written down that I need to do or go to...it probably won't get done/or attended. 
I missed church one week because I had in my mind we were still in the afternoon...4 months into the year. I am still paying for that one amongst people that already knew before now.

The masters is going fairly well. I still suck at doing assignments earlier enough so it's not a rush or a day or so late. Of course it doesn't help when your teacher changes the assignment a week before it's due and you only find out a couple of days before it's due. 

I also went and visited my brother and sister-in-law in QLD for a quick 5 day trip and loved it!
I wish they still lived closer...along with all my friends who have moved up there!
It was fun while it lasted, but alas reality reared its ugly head and I was forced to return to work and study yet again. If only money didn't rule our functioning ability. 

The boat is going fairly well. It's starting to get quite cold on board and reminds me of my previous freezing apartment at times. A heater is on my list of things to acquire. Until then my jumpers have become my best friends again!
Speaking of boat life, I really need to write more about the hilarious things that have happened since I've been here. All I'll say is there's nothing like sharing facilities with a bunch of strangers...
It sure is a life changing experience. 

Well this girl has work in the morning and is dying to get warm in bed. 
I really do need to write on here more often...it will happen...I'm even going to write it down so I don't forget!!

6:30am...

Let's just say that mornings aren't really my best time.
I'm much more of a night owl.

So when I received an e-mail a little while ago to inform me that to sign up for the tutorials of my
units at university I would need to be ready to go at 6:30am the other morning I wasn't too trilled about.

But when you literally have to fight to get a tutorial spot...you get up for it.
If you're Nelly and me, you get up just after 6am and sit
 there refreshing the page until the madness starts.

It was crazy to witnessed the amount of people that were awake and signing up to tutorials within seconds of each other. I have never clicked so quickly.
The early start paid off though as I got all of the times I wanted!

I think teaching is going to be very interesting this year.

I am excitedly nervous to start on Monday!
Wish me luck :)

Home Sweet Boat


Say hello to my new home!

I've been living here for a couple of weeks now and slowly unpacking and getting used to the place...
although it seems like I moved into a retirement home.

The best things about living on a boat is that I've been forced to downsize. 
It's amazing how little value some things can have once you don't have the space for it
anymore.
I also don't have to clean the bathroom...because it's up at the marina.
It has some serious cool features like a blue light deck, music through the cabin and outside.
My bed is huge, and most things are built in.

The not so fun part is that it heats up really quickly inside on a hot day. 
The bathroom is so far away when you really need it.
The oven, cook top and fridge are tiny.
Waiting for the shower when you need it quickly. 

All in all it's been pretty good so far, I just want a regular internet connection is all! :D

Gratitude Sunday

Where has the time gone?
It feels like forever since I wrote anything on here...and my posts tell me it's been a couple months since I wrote last

I've had the occasional blog post written in my head, but never got on the actually blog to write it.
I could have started this year off with a recap of my 2012, or what my goals for the year are, 
but I never got around to writing those either.

Some how I find it perfect that today is when I wrote again.
There is never enough gratitude to be expressed.

and with that being said, here's some things I am grateful for at the moment:

- Changes
- My calling with the Primary kids at church
- My time with the girls I babysat, which came to an end this past Thursday
- The home I have
- My family
- Work
- Clean water
- Downsizing
- Getting to start my teaching course soon
- Almost being 22
- Feeling like I am moving in the right direction
- Fun texts to and from my brother and sister in law
- Free feeds and the company that comes with it! (It's always appreciated)
- Music for every mood
- My lil bro getting his mission call (England London South Mission!)
- Good walks and chats
- New friends
- Holidays

and so much more...

Take a moment

While scrolling through my facebook feed today I came across a very interesting video my brother had shared. 

Before I put my two cents in, take a look for yourself.


Original source

In a world that focuses so heavily on the negativity that surrounds us, this video was an amazing breath of fresh air. I loved this video.

I love that it shows that despite what people think, there are still a lot of good people in this world.
Stereotypes define too many people.
I hate people putting me into a box and deciding who I am.
Let's break the moulds and be better people :D
