Things that have been hip-hop-happening lately;
1. BettyMag is finally at the printers! So proud/happy/excited/relieved. It should be finished printing by Wednesday, the day I fly out. I’m hoping to secure all stockists for my sister to distribute whilst I’m away. Very exciting!
I’ve decided to go seasonal with the magazine so launching issue 1 as a Summer issue. There are some awesome contributions by local women in it- I can’t wait to see people’s responses.
2. EUROPE on Wednesday. Soooo nervous!! I am really worried about getting homesick and culture shock.
Lib bought me the Lonely Planet guide to London and I’ve been flipping through it getting more and more excited as well as overwhelmed! How am I supposed to fit it all in?? Insane.
It was 36 degrees here today so I’m kind of looking forward to the cold again, it’s what I’m used to.
I’ve got some new tightology tights, ‘art teacher’ red walking shoes and my suitcase waiting to be packed.
I cannot wait to see Victoria (otherwise known as Feeley)- my best friend from high school ❤ ❤ eeeh!! I’ll be staying at her house in London!
Feeley and I, circa 2007
3. Moving house! I have been frantically packing up all my crap and storing it at Damon’s. It’s been giving me the worst hayfever from all the dust.
I decided it was time to move out of Kelly Street, as much as I have loved my time there (although there have been definite ups and downs). I’ve spent a good four years there, my first home away from home. Time to move on to bigger, brighter and space-yer things.
I’m moving in with Nao, Alex and Mahain which should be a good balance. We’ve applied for a house in the CBD with floorboards and a chandelier, gosh I hope we get it! Whilst the real estate agent has called us to say we have their approval we have to wait for the owners to give it the AOK.
I cannot wait to get back from my travels and get into a groove at a new place. For my birthday, Damon printed out a huge 4 x A4 by 4 x A4 photograph of us for me to put above my bed. I will definitely put up pictures once it’s in place!
Speaking of the wonderful Damon, he found out today he got First Class honours ! And I can officially graduate because I passed cognitive neuroscience and psychological assessment units!
