Seems I completely missed August, whoops. Although I think I cognitively missed that month as well, anyway care to fill me in on what I did for all of August? So here's to September, Spring has apparently sprung and there is blossom everywhere and the days are longer and the nights are getting warmer, this is good right? I'm having trouble feeling good about the impending shorts/skirts weather though I must say, Fernwood to the rescue!
So I am:
Contemplating.. my future. Next year is a big scary new world for me, I have no plans, no goals, and a suitcase full of dreams. Thus far I have considered living in France/Ireland/London/Canada, backpacking around Europe, volunteering in Fiji, cycling around China and trekking the Kokoda trail. All brilliant ideas, but the idea of travelling alone scares the bejeebus out of me.
Stressing.. about my research project. I guess it's basically a mini thesis where I've had to develop, plan, carry out and write up my own research. I'm doing it on the effects of outsourcing domestic labour on gender division in dual-earner households. Exciting stuff right, who would have thought it'd be hard to find women in dual earner households who hire cleaners/gardeners etc?
Photographing.. nothing at all. But constantly seeing things that I desperately want to take photos of. It annoys me that I'm too lazy to carry my Polaroid camera everywhere with me, it would also help if it wasn't such a stupid shape/size.
Spending.. far too much money on my health. Weekly acupuncture plus 5 fillings (yes, FIVE) plus upcoming cardiologist appointment plus the possibility of personal trainer and/or bootcamp to work out my fat arse. Self neglect comes at a high price my friends.
Hoping.. I can just get through the next 3 months without having a mental breakdown. Pray for me kids, I need it.
