You wouldn't believe that it's officially Winter here in Australia due to the balmy lunchtime temperatures, the vibrant colours of flora and the humidity in the air. I'm disappointed! Bring on the temperatures under ten degrees! I didn't buy a pink pom-pom beanie and stock up on winter socks and hot chocolate for the sake of it! 
How have you been? My life has been quite the roller coaster (just like Ronan Keating describes it in his song) lately. I'm not sure where to start with this post... so I'll share with you a few good things about this week and what's coming up!
  • On Saturday I'm finally seeing The Fault in Our Stars with my friend Abbey! I read the book a couple of months ago and although I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would, it's still a clever, beautiful story and I am excited about seeing it in film. Augustus Waters is quite stunning, I dare say.  
  • I'm going formal/prom dress shopping with my mum's friend on the first Monday of the holidays! She's going to make my dress and I'm so excited about what it's going to look like. Graduation night is just over five months away but it's never too early!
  • You know that overwhelming feeling of accomplishment when you finish a huge assignment? That's how I feel right now about Geography. My field report for our Fraser excursion is SO GOOD and I am SO PROUD of my efforts. Thank you.
  • It's June! It's Winter! It's also less than five months until I graduate and am free of my high school chains! I love school (a lot) but I'm also excited about my future and what it has to hold. 
I hope you all have a riproaring good time for the rest of this week!

prom dress shopping is so much fun (but can easily get frustrating when you're just hitting the regular stores!) -- that is so cool that you're getting yours custom-made...

Ahh, Maria, your skirt and your shoes are perfection. Also, I've been stalking your tumblr lately (in a completely safe and friendly way), and I swear you post the best things!
