Firstly, I would like to apologise for the blatant neglect of this lil’ blog.
Secondly, if you are reading this, thankyou!! I will endeavor to stop being a lazy sh*t and actually post sometimes.
Uni is back and scarily it has been for at least 5 weeks (we are in week 6 now), so WOW i have been very lazy with posting haven’t I.
So Exciting stuff!!! I am going to be travelling to Europe for a month in June to catch up with Sasha and pegs and travel around before returning with them. I am extremely excited and you will probably (if i can stop being lazy) see more about this in future. ATM i know I will be in Ireland for a week, I expect to hit Prague before this and I know we will hit Paris and Disneyland for Sasha’s B’Day 😀
I am now an SR (senior resident-scholarship position) at UniGardens (ANU overflow accommodation) which was all very sudden and unexpected. As you may know if you remember the distant past in my posts, I mentioned I was unsuccessful in my application, despite this I ended up being invited to do the training with Fenner anyway (yeah that f*cked with my head so badly). Part way through the week of training I received an email asking to express interest in being an SR at UniGardens or Lynham Hall (other overflow) by 12 O’Clock the next day. Yet again massive mind mess as I was resigned to not being one and had to come to terms with leaving my Beloved Fenner for an unknown, unestablished place. I eventually managed to sort out my mind mess after driving to both places, talking to the acting head of Fenner and ice-cream on Mt Ainslie with the always delightful S6 (this year) SR. So here I am, although I miss everyone at Fenner, the community here is starting to kick-off and apart from some minor (pretty bad at the time but in hind-sight not so bad) issues, I have settled in nicely and am enjoying it 😀 .
I am an active member of three ANU clubs, all of which are awesome 😀
- HvZ – Some awesome removed because people and ANU are stupid, see here because i am too lazy to write about it myself. However I currently participating in a game of amazingly messed up Forum Mafia through this club
- XSA – The Cross-Disciplinary Students Association is a newly established group with an awesome room more oft’ than not filled with awesome people to have debates and discussions with. They ran an awesome event call Journey to Tartarus Prime which is described here because I am lazy
- N.U.T.S. – I was a member of this group last year but only joined more as something of a donation to an unfortunately flailing (stupid Uni) Drama department. It wasn’t until late into the year thanks to Grease that I actually took advantage of this membership to see some discounted productions. This year I have started off much more active, I have already seen one production with my theater-buddy Jan and her boyfriend. I also attended the Launch party, volunteered to help out with backstage-ness for their first production The Crucible (probably won’t be needed) and participated in the Performances of the 2Day play-write competition which prompted this post.
The 2Day Playwrite competition involved people being given Stimuli and within a 48hr period write a play using these stimuli. One of my friends got talked into writing one and I mentioned I was planning to be involved in the production part and she said she would write me a role. Yesterday rolled around and I had completely forgotten about the whole event until I got called and asked to come in by one of the N.U.T.S. exec. to be in two of the plays. After a couple of games while waiting for more people to turn up we split into groups with me volunteering to be in the group which had my friend’s play in it. The day was crazy, learning and blocking two plays in less than 6 hours (luckily we were still allowed scripts) before putting them on in front of a surprisingly large audience. It was a huge amount of fun and I would really like to thank Ellink for writing me a role in her play, It really means a lot to me, THANKYOU heaps!
Also I am taking drama this semester simply because i can and I am Loving it heaps!
Thats probably more than enough from me. Hopefully I will post again soon 😀
