Put the kettle on.

I haven't made a real post on here since before my birthday, and that was 3 or so months ago. I don't know why I had a break from blogging, I guess I just couldn't be bothered, I am very lazy by nature and it usually takes all my energy to do just about anything.

My birthday was sensational, I caught up with loads of friends, I saw Van She, I got completely spoiled and on the Monday morning I went to work, had a coffee and a slice of cake and went home with my workmates' blessings (even though I felt great).

Bina's Hens' Night Cruise was a laugh and her wedding was the best I've been to. Short speeches at the beginning and lots of drunken dancing the rest of the time.

Oh, I'm back on the booze, it's all good. I still drink a little too much sometimes, but I learned from my 100 days without.

At the work Xmas party I didn't make an ass of myself. :) The guy who wanted to beat the living shit out of me last year DID make a fool out of himself. I have to admit I felt good about that... but then I felt guilty that it made me feel good. I just can't shake that Catholic guilt.

I went to Star City casino with Jackie and a couple of other mates for Xmas and got trashed, it was very fun and very wrong. It was my first xmas without Mum and Dad (they were up the coast) and it was really weird. It was also my first xmas in 5 or more years without Chris. I really missed him.

RE: Chris. We have been on again/off again for a few yrs but 2008 we were somewhere in between, it all came to a head in October and I haven't spoken to him since. I miss him, but I am slowly adjusting to being single. I'm sure we'll cross paths when the time is right.

I spent 5 days in Lismore to celebrate NYE which was a fantastic experience. I caught up with friends from Sydney, Melbourne and New Zealand. I saw some amazing storms, went to the beach, had a fantastic dance on NYD, had some cuddles and kisses, blah blah blah. I've already booked my accommodation for next year.

Late last year I sent an application form to ACAP to begin a Bachelor of Applied Social Science (Counselling) part-time. On Tuesday afternoon I had a meeting with the Course Advisor, Jack. He asked me a few questions and I told him what he wanted to hear. Now I just need to keep my eyes peeled for an acceptance letter :) He made it sound like a formality, it's all very exciting.

That is all the noteworthy stuff that springs to mind (although my memory is pretty fucked)

I did get broken into one afternoon in December, and the bastards stole my iPod and some cash, but I am very proud of how I took it all in my stride. I have become a little concerned about security at home, but the real estate agent is coming over tomorrow to see if we can do something about it.

2009 is going to be a very different year to the last few years and it will take a little adjustment. I don't really have a new year's resolution but I'm going to concentrate on strengthening existing friendships rather than making new ones. I am spreading myself a little thin these days.

Oh, and I'm going to stop drunken-blogging so much.

The picture is something I did for a calendar at work.
