I'm sitting at my desk at work with my eyeballs about to fall out of my head with tired acheyness, struggling to stop the keyboard from making a Qwertyuiop on my head as I flop down onto the keyboard, eying up the clock to see when I can go home and just flop into my bed and yet I'm oddly happy... why is this?
I handed in my last essay for the year today! Two exams (one on Thurs, one on the 17th) and I am done. As much as I have really enjoyed studying something that I love this year, I can't deny that I am supremely grateful that my summer holidays are just around the corner.
Other things I'm grateful for today?
- Building an awesome friendship with one of my cousins - there's less than a year between us, but we also have another boy cousin closer to his age. Growing up, I always hung out with the next cousin up the tree from me (about five years older and a boy - he must have LOVED me tagging along) and M always hung out with A. Thanks to the wonders of Facebook, even though he lives further away than ever before, I'm his go-to wise chickie-cousin and he's my convenient place to stay in a gorgeous beach town LOL.
- My new duvet - an early christmas present from the 'rents. Even though I have a queen sized bed I've been coveting a king sized duvet that I can really snuggle up under. In the Labour Weekend Sales Mum and I picked up a wool-filled duvet inner for incredibly cheap and I swear it is like sleeping in a cuddle! A cuddle that is just the right temperature even. On Friday I intend on staying in my bed ALL day.
- A brilliant Jubilationz concert on Saturday, spending lots of time in blustery winds (but no rain!) with like-minded people. Followed by dinner and hanging out with a wonderful guy and meeting his mates at a house overlooking the harbour and the city - the view just BLEW my mind.
- A lovely relaxing overnight trip with Navywife and Ms. Bee - pretty incredible to still have strong friendships with girls (well, now women) that I have known for so long. I'll have known Ms. Bee for 20 years in 2009 and I've known Navywife since we were both foetuses! Three swims in the hot pool in less than 24 hours and girly gossip sessions were totally worth putting up with Navywife's snoring!
What's sparkling for you guys?
