So ...

Haven't written in this thing for a few days, so I just wanted to post something to update you all.

Things not looking so good on the job-hunting front at the moment.  I haven't heard back from any of the job agencies I've applied to yet, and if I don't find something to do very soon, I am going to go mad.  I have therefore 99.99% made up my mind to make the move to Melbourne and look for work there.  My brother and his girlfriend are currently looking for places there, and invited me to move in with them.  They almost had this really nice place in Armadale that we went to look at on Monday, but unfortunately didn't end up getting it, so they're back to looking.  I'm going to Melbourne tomorrow to visit my Aunt in hospital and will probably meet up with my brother then and chat to him about what the plan is.  I'm nervous and anxious but excited all at the same time.  So I guess we'll see how that goes tomorrow.  I think it would be for the better; there'd certainly be more work around.  And I think that I do finally need to get out of Ballarat.

Otherwise, things aren't too bad around here at the moment.  We had all the carpets cleaned on Thursday, so while all the non-major furniture was out of my room, it got the very best vacuum it's had in years and I've re-arranged the furniture.  I think I like it the way it is now.  Now I can access the bookshelves and one of my cupboards better than I could the way it was, and I got rid of a table, now just using my desk for my lamp and alarm clock.  'Course, when I move it's not going to make any difference to me, but I like it for now.  And Dad replaced some of the old, dirty roof stuff outside my window, so my room's a lot lighter now too.  I've been writing quite a bit lately too, which I've thoroughly enjoyed, having not done any writing for a long time.  Not that anyone's ever going to read it, but I do enjoy writing little scenes that just sort of pop into my head every now and then.  It's a nice relief from my worries of the world and my place in it.

Um ... I don't think there's anything else I wanted to say today.  I do have a bag of stuff sitting on my desk that needs to be sorted out (or thrown out as the case may be when I've had a look at it), so I should probably do that, then I might do a little more writing, or work on that almost done moodtheme I'm making at the moment.  Need about 20 more pics.  Adios for now, though.

Oh, and good luck to theminxiekitten and madfruitbat on their NaNoWriMo entries! :)

  • So I want to start writing in this again.

    Perhaps I should make that one of my New Years resolutions this year. I do seem to make this resolution every year, however, and it never seems to…

  • It's been almost a month ...

    ... but I've been really busy, and we still don't have the Internet at home. I just wanted to let you all know that I am still alive and reading…

  • An update before I head back to Melbourne.

    I had an Australia Day playout with the band on Monday, so I came home for it; then seeing I was already around, I decided I might as well stay an…
