Only a week left to go...

So here I am writing notes about Flexible Learning Spaces, which I hate to be quite honest. I don't like the spaces and I don't like writing about them. What I  like is shopping. Yeah, I like shopping for clothes to wear to places I like with people I like.

 I also like wine, I've had far too much of that stuff lately,  I need to stop drinking my calories just because I don't want to think about my education assignments and the soul-destroying job search process. I want to think about all the fun things I will do over summer with the friends I have seen too little of lately. Obviously, when I think of doing these things I am in an alternate reality in which I actually  have money and humidity doesn't do horrible things to my curls. I guess this summer I will be discovering what 'Budget Melbourne' has to offer. Ah, screw that.

Here is a list of things I am looking forward to doing once I have finished this infernal course.

  • Attending the Spanish Film Festival La Mirada
  • Drinking Sangria on the rooftop bar of The Emerald Peacock
  • Dog/Housesitting for my parents and taking full advantage of the air con, proximity to the beach, and the sunny balcony.
  • Drinking mojitos on aforementioned balcony
  • Making massive pitchers of  iced tea with fresh fruit.
  • Finally seeing a film at The Rooftop Cinema after countless summers of intending to go but never making it.
  • Two words: Beer Gardens.
  • Reading books for the enjoyment of it.
  • Meeting some members of the opposite sex. So many females all up in my Education course. I need some casual entertainment.
  • Dancing up a storm at Soul Night
  • Discovering some new brunch places with my friends.....
  • ....actually seeing my friends

Yesterday I had a 'mock interview' for teaching. It went well but the guy told me that I should beef up my resume with some information about my interests. ' List the countries you've been to' he suggested. I laughed a little thinking that it'd take up half the page. Then I couldn't stop trying to mentally list the countries I've visited. So here they are, for my reference and, just to brag.

New Zealand                     The Netherlands
Australia                            Belgium
Singapore                          Poland
England                             Czech Republic
Hungrary                           Austria
Ireland                               Germany
Scotland                            Italy
Slovakia                            Switzerland
Wales                                France
Spain                                 Portugal
Exactly twenty. Not as many as I thought, actually. I'm hoping to get Turkey, Greece, Cuba, Belize, Argentina, and Chile on there in the next few years.
