The Month That Was: February 2016
In February 2016 I completed my first class at Uni and began renovating our kitchen.
During my break from Uni (between terms) I have been very busy with the kitchen renovation. Sanding all of the cupboards, skirting and around a bench has been taking some time, but I am hoping I can have it finished in the coming week. My hands have been getting sore and I keep forgetting to wear gloves, so my fingers are rough and sore from the sandpaper.
Merry Christmas to everyone around the world. I hope you had/have a great day. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you still have great holidays and an awesome 2016!
My Christmas was spent with my mum and dad. Thankfully it wasn’t too hot (a typical Australian Christmas is usually icky heat and trying to stay cool). I was lucky to receive a new drawing tablet and some awesome gifts from friends that did the christmas gift exchange with me. Included below is a lot of images of gifts and what was included in the cards that I sent this year (all photos are from my phone, because I was feeling a bit lazy ahha).
I hope everyone had a really nice Christmas and enjoyed spending time with family, friends or however you chose. If you exchange gifts, I hope you got some lovely presents!
It was a nice day for me, spent with mum and dad. I received a TV for my bedroom along with wireless headphones so I can spend time gaming in my room on my PS3. I also got an owl calendar, some notebooks and a cute owl money box.
See ya 2013
Another year is almost over and 2014 is knocking on our doors! Hopefully it can be a year where we all welcome the visitor, who will bring many positive gifts.
For me, 2013 was a kind of a difficult year. Not as traumatic as 2012 was, but it was still hard. I faced a lot of challenges with mental health, lost a friend to suicide, lost my dear grandparents dog and lived in a numb daze a lot of the time. However, I was lucky in that I had my parents there for me and two good
noodles friends named Nicole and Claire who put up with my craziness and for some strange reason still wanted to be friends. Siriusly Seriously though, they really helped me in so many ways and inspired to give me hope.
What do I want for 2014? I mainly hope that I can settle and try to find stability. I don’t want to make major plans for the future until I am at a place where I am thinking clearly and can handle all that goes with major decisions (take 2012, where I thought my only option was to start a business). I hope that I will reach out for help and keep striving to get to a good place while also still working on creative projects and sharing love with the people I care about.
Now for some kind of random things. :B
Merry Christmas 2013
Merry Christmas to everyone! I hope you had a really wonderful time. Christmas day for me was a nice day spent with my mum and dad. We opened gifts, had some food and enjoyed each others company. Unfortunately dad had to go back to work on Christmas day so that was a bummer. Mum and I also carried on the tradition and watched many movies in the afternoon/night. It has always been something we enjoy, not just on Christmas, but a lot of the time, since I was a child.
I was not expecting any gifts, I was more excited about giving mum her new camera (Canon EOS 600D). She really loved it. So I was glad. However, I did get a lot of cute little gifts (which include a lot of owl things). You could say it was a hoot*.
Get ready for an overload of images below.
