Some Good Greece News!

This blog has become a bit un-Greece-focused… so here’s an article to bring us up to date with the political Greek situation. Wahey! They’re finally doing something about the Golden Dawn people! The clouds are clearing! Yay! πŸ˜€

Being Goldilocks

Being Goldilocks

Lots of people have appreciated my outfit so far. I’ll post a full length photo later (I’m in Biology right now, so kinda can’t).

TONIGHT I AM HAVING THE SUPERNATURAL MARATHON! AHHHHH!!!!!!! Chimmercharlie says I can’t show up unless I bring at least 10 dumplings… MUST REMEMBER DUMPLINGS.

My heart is crackling (yes. Crackling. Deal with it.) at the thought of 19 hours of Jared Padalecki. Yum.

What else…

Oh yeah. Heartbreaking update for you all. The Greece Dream. The reason I started this whole blog. It just got $720 lighter.

*Struggles to hold back sob*

Yes, dear friends and followers. I am paying for some of my Graduation things and it has come to a total of $720. I am no longer at €1,054… right now I only have €602.50. That’s it.

SG $$
Before: 1,680
After: 960

EU €€
Before: 1,054
After: 602.50

See? Handing over the envelopes of cash made me feel faint… but I know it’s worth it (my new mantra). It’s worth it. It has to be worth it. I know the Phuket trip (the majority of the spent cash) WILL be worth it… it’ll be whether I’ll enjoy the rest of the money I’m spending.

The money wallet is thinner and lighter. It’s still got a significant amount of money in it… but homigod these are difficult times for me.

I have to raise the money back after I graduate. I know I CAN, it’s just how FAST can I do it? I’ll always think- if I hadn’t spent that money I’d be $720 richer right now… I need to figure out how to get over that hurdle… *Sigh*

Just think about Padalecki. Just think about Padalecki. Just think about Padalecki. *gulp*

Lunchtime Lecture

On Friday last week I went to a Classics lecture and I just googled the guy who gave the lecture and found this:

Ughh!!!! The whole University thing is getting to me more than usual. All (99% at least) of my friends are going to the UK and I’m off to Australia. I know the degree I want to do… but as far as I’m concerned it’s only offered at Exeter… which, if I’m not wrong, is only ~63 miles from Bristol… where Chimmercharlie is planning to go.

I know you’re not supposed to go where your friends go… and if I applied to Exeter I wouldn’t be following people per se… I’d just be going with the crowd. But the most compelling argument for applying to the UK (in a sudden change of heart…) is that it is the ONLY place I’ve found that offers the degree I want.

Dead serious.

I want to do Ancient History and Archaeology. Exeter offers it. See?

Image

*Cries*

Nowhere in Australia offers it. I’ve looked and looked and looked. I’ve emailed the Universities… it really isn’t offered there. To make matters worse, I don’t live there so enquiring about it instead of just emailing is nearly impossible. I shouldn’t be worrying about it until after the exams, even I changed my mind and applied I’d still be going in a year behind everyone else.

I so desperately want to do Ancient History and Archaeology… I don’t want to lose my friends either… this is a solve for both. It does my degree!!! Does anyone realise how torturous it is to know that the degree DOES EXIST but I can’t take it? I mean I could… but I’m not sure if I’d be allowed to.

Moving to the UK… it’s against everything in me. I have always dreamed of going home to Australia and being with my whole family. Australia is the dream. But this dream… it isn’t as complete as I like to make it out to be.

The degree isn’t there. The family is a shattered mess all over the country. I don’t even have a preference as to which Uni I want to go to.

The thing about Australia though… WEATHER. WEATHER. WEATHER. And… um WEATHER. But aside from that it’s justΒ easier! I’ll be with my family (more or less), I’m pretty much guaranteed entry for a single degree (29 points people… 29. UK is asking minimum of 36.) and there’s no “UCAS” and “Personal Statement” bullshit. It’s straight-up grades for Australia.

UGHHHHHHHHH!!! I’m going to focus on my work. I can’t think about these things. It’s giving me heartache. And a headache. And a pit in the bottom of my stomach.

Girls Night

Girls Night

So this loser slept over last night (love her really). She’s absolutely hilarious, the sweetest thing you’ll ever meet and she’s gorgeous on top of all that. I don’t know anyone that can make me laugh as much as she can!

So she slept over last night and we watched ‘Les Mis’ and ate chocolate dipped strawberries and sat up until 2 in the morning talking about boys and whatnot. SUCH A LOVELY NIGHT! I haven’t done anything like that in SO LONG! I honestly can’t remember the last time I sat down and had a night-long heart to heart with another girl over the “trivial” matter of boys. *Sigh*

I’m really going to miss her when we Graduate and head off in opposite directions. She wants to come to Greece with me so that will be fun! πŸ˜€

OKAY I have a 3 hour Medical Lecture to get to now so byee! πŸ˜€

Wednesday, Catch Up Day

Wednesday, Catch Up Day

I never got around to writing again for you all last night. Basically, I went home after choir (thank goodness I went to choir as well! We learned 2 new songs!), and then slept… then went to the doctor’s then came home and slept. Yeah. Exciting times.

Anyway, I’m not dying, which is always a plus. He said it’ll pass in a few days and in the meantime to take these drugs for reducing the aches and pains.

As you can see, I’ve made it into school so I’m fine πŸ˜›

I went to bed at 11pm and woke up at 9am… YAY! Most sleep I’ve had in a LONG LONG TIME!

Came into school at break and am now skipping Maths in order to get my Classics Speech written. Should be straight forward, but there’s so much to say! I have to present it at the end of the day so I’m a little nervous.

English is in a few minutes… I have to go to that because I’m not yet bad ass enough to skip an entire day of school πŸ˜›

Uhmm… oh yeah! I’m meeting up with an old friend of mine at lunch! Yeah! She’s coming here at about 1pm and then we’re going off-site for lunch. She leaves for America on Friday so today is the only time we’ll be able to see each other. I miss this girl, she’s been a close friend of mine for years! She left for America (boarding school, loser) about… 2-3 years ago? So yeah, I’m seeing her for lunch today. πŸ™‚

Okay, back to work on the speech! The actual presentation is on Monday! (Eeesh!) So it needs to be done today. I’m going to be talking about “Love in Ancient Greece”. I might post the speech up here if you like? πŸ™‚
