A new direction

I made a decision to apply to study a degree in Communication Design with Swinburne Online.

I am very interested in this course because it covers many modern design techniques and photography (!). I had to submit a design portfolio with different works I had created and explain my communication and design objective, which was an interesting task. I also had to include a personal statement that gives them an idea if this degree is right for you (I hope they think so). I am a little nervous about it, because I have not studied since 2010 (wow).

I know that this will be a good opportunity for me and give me direction and solid goals. Even if I am not approved for this degree, I am going to find another one (such as Internet Communications that I had started in 2010). For many years I have been floating and not really sure where I was heading. I like to think that this is the start of a new phase that has many wonderful opportunities.

Typo Fun

There was once a girl who had a problem with stationary. Especially from a delightful store named Typo. There were just so many items that she adored that sometimes she would accidentally splurge and buy some pretty things. Yes, that girl was me. :B

Lots of pretty images ahead!

A Smiggle Accident

It’s no secret that I have a weak spot for cute things. However, I also have another weakness, stationary. Pens, pencils, journals, notepads, stickers, all the things! Now, if you combine cute and stationary together it’s an epic fusion of awesome. Smiggle is a store that does combine these things (and rainbows, with the way they organise their store stock). So.. I might have accidentally wondered into a store recently and brought a few things… >.<

This post is kind of image heavy (but they are cute images) :D

All the things

I have had a bag of things  been sitting in my room for a while that I wanted to photograph and share. Some of these were given to me and others I brought myself. I wanted to share them because they are so cute. Beware this post may be picture heavy.

Christmas OrnamentsChristmas Ornaments. The middle one was a gift from mum and the others (two owls and cupcakes I brought from Big W).

$9 Threadless Bonanza!

Threadless has been tricky and had a $9 sale again. (I love them for their awesomeness, seriously I do). So, I had to buy a few shirts. Only eight this time, compared to the waaaay to many I brought last time. I did buy the piggy bank tee again as a gift for the Mummy who loved the design. :3

Yay!

I also brought two new domains, tale.nu (will be for writing) and kitten.nu (domain connective). Now I just need to start working on them. 4_4

Living in a Sandbox

The last few days/week I have been feeling really blah. Very tired, sleepy, sick. Basically depressed. I have been thinking and dreaming about my Nanna a lot (who passed away in May 2010). I miss her so much. :( The fact I can never hug her again, and that the generations after me will never know her is such a huge shame. *sigh* I know they can know her through stories passed on, it’s just not the same as knowing someone.

I took Kitdung and Mogwai to the vet to be de-sexed. Everything went well, except for the fact that Mogwai is actually a boy not a girl ahahah. Fail. I really really thought he was a she. I’ve raised heaps of kittens over the years, but he was a sneaky little boy.

I have been slack with emails and just about everything online. It has been taking me a lot of energy to do anything which really sucks. The stupid internet connection I am using is driving me crazy. It sails a long at 11kbps (arrrrh) and likes to disconnect all the time. Grr.

I was going to get a Mac, it was kind of a spur of the moment thing because I have been wanting one for years (they are sexy). Mum and Dad talked me out of it (at least for now, har har). After thinking about it for a while, I think what I was really wanting was happiness not just a Mac. Because the idea of one opens the doors for happiness and delight. If I can find ways to bring some positives in, I might want a Mac less (or more? Bwahaha).

Hah, I brought more DVDs.

  2. Is Anybody There
  3. Gamer
  4. Two Hands
  5. The Haunting In Connecticut

I have been on a bit of a horror movie marathon lately. Sometimes watching them alone is a bad idea. :P Are you on iCheckmovies.com? :D If you are add me, Kya.

Shopping Day

I had a lot of fun yesterday and spent more money then I had planned (I did say I would TRY… 4_4 ). I brought a whole bundle of really cute items that I plan to resell. I am not sure if I should do it via my blog or create a website for it. What do you think?

The images above show the items I brought. I had to break it into two images, because I did buy so much. Whoops. :0 I adore my Hello Kitty hat, it is just too cute and it is snuggly and warm! 3_3

I have now finished babysitting and I have to admit I am relieved. It was starting to really become a huge effort and I had no time to do anything else. Now I can have some time back again. I also had a nice surprise today, Dad came home for the night. I haven’t seen him in about five weeks. His treatment is going well. ^_^
