Nearly DonePosted 1 year ago, been a while (and hardly any one uses this anymore) few updates.
Graduate in June as an Enrolled Nurse! Will go on to do my Registered Nursing soon after. No more waitressing (or as Agent_z says showing my boobs to people who eat [don't know what restaurant he eats at!])
Hoping to get a post grad in August, got a few resumes out so fingers crossed.
Turns out I was featured user (?!? when did this happen). Thank you to all the people who thanked me for getting featured user.
Alive and kickingBeen a while, still alive and kicking though I have no time for myself. For those that remember (no one lol) I was caught between deciding between uni or TAFE in regards to EN and RN. In the end I chose TAFE (EN), it's cheaper, I only have 15 months to go and I get to do regular prac. It also halves the RN course which helps.
Finally got my scrubs
Hopefully the new RvB series will get me to come on more often (though prolly not) Tasma
Got a problemTwo journals in a monthish, gosh you guys must feel special (kinda obvious I'm dodging my essay). As I wrote in my last journal I'm attempting to become a nurse. I've nearly finished my bridging course and now I have to make a choice. I can choose to do enrolled nursing at TAFE which is a lot cheaper and easier. But TAFE are known for being hopeless and jerking you around. Or I can go to Uni which is a lot more expensive but they are less likely to jerk you around.
TAFE = Easy, Save about $30,000 but get jerked around by useless lecturers. Finish as a enrolled nurse
Uni = Harder, Approx $60,000, better lecturers and finish as a registered nurse.
The choice is a tricky one.
I got about a month to decide (and knowing me I'll leave it to the last minute too lol)
Long NeglectHi all, Guess what? I am actually alive! Just been extremely busy.
I am finally heading towards my career of being a nurse (I hope) Right now I am doing a 6 month bridging course that will get me into uni, though I also have the option of staying on at tafe to study enrolled nursing. It's really hard trying to get back into the swing of studying again (hence why I am writing this journal and NOT doing my sociology essay). Finding it hard to keep motivated really, especially when I have temptation all around (like my darling xbox [no I haven't matured up in the 8 month gap since I last posted])
I think I got my license last time I posted, though I still don't own a car of my own (I can afford one, I'm just stingy). I am using the big giant family mover car for now.
I have also started clubbing occasionally (not too often, I'm still my boring self). The night clubs here aren't that nice, though I still have fun. It's my 20th soon, so I plan to do one of my all-nighters, so I will be nice and tired for jury duty 2 days later!
Will post current pictures (I been promising that for a while) and will hopefully be on here more (been promising that to myself as well) . I just cant be bothered waiting for the videos to buffer so I can watch them. What happened to the good old days where we could down load the videos when they came out.
I finally got my license!!! 2 year late from everybody else lol, and it's only a automatic license but now I can legally drive. The log book test was easy, I passed almost everything ... except reverse parallel parking, I nearly failed the whole thing because of it. But I passed, did my log book, and got my license a week before my little brother did. (He was so angry)
Now we share a car which we call the commune car as its under dads, darcy's and my name. But sharing a car doesn't work, when I want to take it to work, he need it. When I want to go out, he needs it. I hate sharing. Trying to buy a car now,moneys not an issue, finding the time to buy one is.
Me and Cameron though we would do something nice for our 3 year anniversary. So we went on a holiday to Cairns to see his mum. We had a bumpy start, we bused it down to Perth as neither of us wanted to drive, first thing we see when we get off is this skinny little chick smashing this giant guy (she looked like she was winning) apparently its a weekly occurrence, when we walked past later they were kissing like their life depended on it LOL.
We also got fined $100 for using a student card as a concession. Last time we came down (like a year ago) it was ok, but this time it wasn't. The guy didn't let us explain, and wrote us the fine. When we looked at it later he had marked our home town as a suburb of Perth. What a dumb shit.
Then the night we were supposed to fly out to Cairns (a four hour flight) a fire alarm went off at the air port, so our plane was an hour late. When they finally let people in it was a mad house. When we were lining up to get checked in the staff told us over the PA that people flying to Cairns check in first, then people to Sydney, but no body would listen. The line took forever because people would slip under the ropes and try and get into their flight.
On the plane going there we had a toddler in front of us bawling its eyes out, and going back one next to us. We all know how much I just love children, so you can imagine how shitty I was. I'm NEVER flying jet star again.
Cairns when we got there was absolutely beautiful, we just loved it. It's surrounded by mountains all around, and sugar cane was every where. We saw a cane toad too, wish I had a golf stick. Compared to Gero, Cairns is huge. 130,000 people compared to our 30,000 lol. I'm now a little more tanned coming back (or thats what I like to tell myself lol) but I got my freckles back .
On our 3 year anniversary we went to a casino, where they had a huge buffet. For those of you who know him, you can imagine just how happy he was lol. I wanted to gamble a bit but Cameron is very anti gambling. He doesn't even like it when I buy lotto tickets.
We also went on a water falls tour. We got to swim in two waterfalls and a lake. It was beautiful. We also got to go to a chocolate and cheese factory. We also got to go to a small town pub for lunch. $2 for a midi. $3 for a lemon lime bitters!!! I wish they had those prices here lol.
Needless to say our suitcases were a heap heavier when we got home lol. We managed to score Dead Space for $40 at Fremantle!!! Also got a lot of books and believe it or not clothes. I now have a nice formal dress I can wear for the Crothers Christmas party (where everyone is in their 30s-40s and were the youngest people there)
I have some photos on face book (as most of my rellie use it) if anyone wants to see them.
Just lazy, every time i go to make a journal think, I should include pics I go and take pics and forget all about it. A lot has happened in 3ish months.
Still working full time at the butchers shop. It's pretty fun, the pay is ok(they pay better than most places), the managers are nice and the customers are okish. It's impossible to get a full time so I consider myself very lucky while I am elbow deep in chicken blood. (exaggeration there). To my absolute amazement, the managers think I am a very nice person and a VERY hard worker lololol.I have also made new friends, they are all very nice, little strange as I am the youngest full timer at this point in time.
I finally got my certificate 4 in multimedia. I could at the moment seek out a job that requires my skills, but with the way Australia is atm, I would rather earn minimum wage with a permanent job, than get a new job and risk it going bust.
Still catch up with my old friends. Saw Night_Drifter, Machine 1989 and Nyrb out a few weeks ago. It was nice catching up seeing as we are all so busy. I go to the pubs every now and again and get sloshed. I have become a light weight.
Second story is coming along nicely. Me and Cameron are currently living up there. It's not completed. More of a skeleton inside ... and no insulation. Since we live in the "windy city"it gets very cold and noisy, but it beats sharing a single swag in a bed room 3x2.
2 years and 8 months for me and Cameron, w00t. We recently had a home loan knocked back. Our plan was to buy a block of land and pay it off within 5 years, but seeing as me and Cameron are both on minimum wage (Cameron is an apprentice carpenter, they get paid shit all) we would be working for 12to15ish years (depending on which bank we side with) with a shitload of interest so it was a no. Dissapointing, but when Cameron goes tradie, we can go for it then.
Thats all I can think of for now, I am alive, though this site has been dead lately
It's been a whileSo I thought I would make a new journal. Quite a few new things have happened lately, some good and some bad.
I have finally got a job. It's at a poultry franchise, not the job I had in mind but while were in a recession I can't be picky. Everyone there is really nice, so it's not too bad. I'm doing 8 to 4 5 days a week so I'm making a decent amount. I'm really lucky to get the job, I was told there were quite a few applicants. So I guess I must have done something right.
Cameron is considering entering the shave for a cure, it's coming up in a few weeks. Is anyone in Gero interested in sponsoring him? He wants to have all his hair cut down to about an inch off his skull, though I think we would raise more money if he did the full shave, he would look funny with no hair. LOL So if anyone is interested give us a yell, we already have about 10 people interested.
I am rather sick at the moment with a nasty virus, I can't eat anything solid and 6 times out of 10 I'll throw it up. I also get these weird hot and cold flushes, I will be boiling hot sitting under the air con, half an hour later so cold I have to rug up. Cameron's been good looking after me.
I got Halo wars on the 26th and clocked the campain mode it on the 29th. For a much anticipated game I think it was rather short. That's just my opinion though. The graphics are great and I had fun playing it, until Cameron hijacked the game half way through. I found it to be really fun, though Cameron complains it was a waste of money (who paid for it I remind him).
That's all I can think of to write, I has been an eventful month that's for sure
