My life, as a photographer

A new year, new beginnings

Well, it’s the 16th day of the new year and I must say it does feel as though nothing has really changed. It does seem like an odd tradition; celebrating a year finishing and a new one starting. There’s not really any difference between the 31st and the 1st, except for a hangover and more people out at the shops.

Anyway, my boyfriend and I have finally moved back into our old house again, after about 3 or 4 months living upstairs in the attic while the bathroom was renovated. It took 2 days to clean everything so we could live in it again – it was a huuuge mess. Regardless, it’s actually all finished now and things are starting to look normal again. So that’s a plus.

I’ve taken on a game for this year to read 50 books this year, I’m half-way through my second one, though I wasn’t really playing the game during the first one so I wasn’t in a hurry. The second book is The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Cholbsky. It’s a great book so far – it has had me tearing up a few times now. I think I like it because the main character is only a year or two older than I was at the time it was written, though his life seems far more interesting that I remember mine being at the time. I guess that’s the benefit of a book though right?

Other than the book reading, I’m resolving to finally open the gallery this year – now that I have my visa and I’m a legal resident here I’m less worried about being noticed by the ‘wrong’ people. It will happen this year. I know it.

I’ve also applied to the Monash Uni in Victoria to study secondary education by correspondence. I have a provisional O.K. from the International School here to do my student placement there. I’m looking forward to hearing from Monash soon to tell me I’m in.

More later,

  1. Hey ADH:
    Two qs – why didn’t the labourers clean up after themselves or the owners of the property that had the renos done? And… (adopts Dorrie Evans voice) “Why wasn’t I told?” You NEVER told me you go “legal”?! Congrats!!!

    • Apparently it’s not common for them to clean up after their job is finished..and I hadn’t gotten the actual visa yet, just a letter so I didn’t really make an announcement…:)
