2017

holy moly.  we're finally in 2017. It's bumming me out because now I have to think really hard when I talk about time and my head is just not cool with it. We ended the year with bright reflections chilling on an empty harbour, an exhausting run to try and make the fireworks (only to have to settle for whatever explosions poked their head out above buildings) and a midnight drive to the soundtrack of absolutely fabulous. 

2016 was awesome. I mean, if you ignore the fact that Donald Trump somehow made it into the United States government, the singer of some of my favourite songs ever passed away (Bowie <3),  a gorilla meme invaded my social media (ugh), etc, etc. Uni has been the best thing to happen in a while. I started the year in a course I picked on a whim because I didn't get the results I wanted, and it worked out just fine and dandy. I partied until I couldn't distinguish between fact and fiction, improved my skiing abilities (and got myself stranded on a blue run, but lets not go there), met some fab people and scored an awesome summer job. 2017's gonna be a big one, and Im totally ready for it. Come at me bro. (this morning i found a chocolate in my bag and it was in edible condition so it's already off to a great start!)

Every morning i wake to the blissful sounds of fast cars, airplanes flying overhead and, if i'm reeeeally lucky, our neighbours two streets away playing the bagpipes at 8am. It's just one of the amazing perks of city life. 

I love Sydney. I love the sense of multiculturalism, the arts culture, the beautiful beaches and harbours, etc. etc. etc. However sometimes you just need a break from a hustle. Mum has decided to move to the snowy mountains so we went down there for a mini camping trip to look at a couple properties. Annual ski trips here I coooooooome!!!!!


We camped in Dalgety, the loveliest little town on the Snowy River about half an hour out of Jindabyne. The scenery is something out of a fairytale book.


Chilling at Lake Jindabyne.



Although the fresh Snowy River water was doing wanders for Elton's coat, he was scaring off the platypus...nooooooooo come baaaack


5am country sunrises. 


There was a big bike race coming through the town - ba-dum-tish


Camping with the Troopie makes for an awesome time.

It's reached a point in semester where everything is happening at once and you start to crumble inside and think "why in god's name did I come to uni why couldn't I have been accepted into Hogwarts someone plz help me".  Midnight trips home after slamming a 14 hour last-minute assessment session at uni have become the norm, fuelled only by Domino's pizza and copious amounts of energy drink. You'd have thought HSC would have prepared me for this. Apparently not.

On top of everything I've had thoughts of whether Design Computing is for me, considering a transfer to Law or Commerce (my original uni preferences). Sonia and I took an hour out this morning to look at ball dresses (the real problems tho) and I, deciding it's been far too long since I've taken my camera out (or posted on the blog...oops), thought I might go for a trip to the QVB on my way. 

Oh yeah, and just for the record, I loathe rhino3d. 





Told Sonia I'd meet her at Pitt Street Mall. Ditched the plan for photos from the Myer bridge.  



There's something I love about the tunnel leading to St. James Station. It somehow gives the generally sickening combination of yellow and green a quaint charm, and the symmetry that leads all the way down is RIDICULOUSLY pleasing to the eye.
