Hello internet friends (and also real-life friends that read this blog!)
How are we all doing this Wednesday evening? I'm part of the small minority not watching the State of Origin game... mainly because I don't really care. Ha!
It's been pretty busy here in Brisbane since I last blogged. Last Friday night I went to my first ever concert; Broods. It was absolutely amazing and much more wonderful than I had anticipated. Supporting acts included Vera Blue (who I hadn't heard of before; but after the amount of times I've listened to 'Settle' in the last week, I feel that it's fair to consider myself a huge fan) and Jarryd James (no words needed here really...what a legend). The show was topped off perfectly by an invitation to go backstage afterwards (*heavy breathing*). My room mate is actually cousins with the Broods duo so you can imagine my excitement when I was granted backstage access to have drinks and cake with 'famous people'. I still got Caleb's name wrong though (called him Jacob...) - because naturally I have to embarrass myself in every social situation. Overall, it was just wonderful and an experience I will never forget. Bring on a lifetime of more gigs and concerts please - I am now obsessed with live music!
In other exciting news, I am also on the verge of getting my driver's license... it's been a long time coming but I finally kicked myself into gear (pardon the pun) with this one. I'm about two years late to the driving game, but hopefully in August I'll be swinging a set of manual car keys and driving myself to McDonald's for a 'maccas run'. Because that's really the only reason youngins these days get their license, right?!
The holidays are rapidly growing thinner in days which makes me feel pretty anxious. I'm not looking forward to going back to university this semester, but I'm going to give it my best shot doing four courses; and if worse comes to worse, I can drop down to three. I've been motivated purely by the thought of donning the cap and gown at the age of twenty - an enticing thought! Fingers crossed the stars align for me for the second half of 2016 and it's mostly smooth sailing ahead. If not though, I guess I'm prepared!
Tonight I thought I would share with you all a playlist I made of some great tunes (old and new) that I've been jamming to lately. It's very random... like VERY random. There is probably five different genres in total... but I love all sorts of music so I guess this is a reflection of that. They've significantly improved the bus commute situation and also double as great in-the-shower-sing-a-long bangers... so enjoy, and have a lovely lovely lovely week.
