Whew, it was raining today after a very hot day yesterday! I appreciated the cool change.
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas! I spent most of my Christmas relaxing, which is really unusual for me. Maybe it was because it was Christmas? Usually I’m on the computer for most of the day, and spend some time doing chores as well.
Yesterday I woke up pretty late, admittedly. I have been sleeping at inconsistent times lately – 2:45am the other day (my mum came home from work late and didn’t have keys!), yesterday at 1:00am (distracted…) and today, I don’t really know, but I’m hoping to sleep before midnight.
After I woke up late yesterday, my mum wanted me to go with her to our neighbours’ house to drop of some Christmas presents. We spent some time there having a chat about the neighbourhood and such. This elderly couple lives next door to us and lived there even before we moved here. We moved here when I was three years old, before my brother was even born.
We started talking about my mum’s work, and other rebuilt shopping centres around the area. A lot of shopping centres have been rebuilt or been extended. We talked about this one about twenty minutes away, which recently opened with an underground car park. What’s really funny is that the wife of the couple used to live there when she was younger, and back then it had been farmland with only a few houses in the area. It’s strange how it’s all urbanised now, and apparently they’re building penthouses. 😄
I ate breakfast rather late, after we returned home. This resulted in a late lunch at about 4:00pm, and a late dinner at about 9:00pm. I had eaten some fruit throughout the day, so my dinner was just a can of tuna and a few spoons of rice.
Though I was online and checking my email throughout the day, I chose to lie down on the couch in the afternoon and watch a concert with Human Nature (an Australian vocal group) and the Sydney Symphony orchestra. It was only an hour and a half, and it was very enjoyable to watch. It reminds me of the 22nd January 2011, the day which I’ll be going to my first concert for Ben Jorgensen. I’m quite excited already – less than a month left. 😄
I’m hoping to start the new year nice and fresh and I have some resolutions in mind. That includes sleeping early! As I mentioned in previous posts, I’m going to be cleaning my websites and fanlistings out too. I’ve already made a new layout and moved my writing portfolio to Aquapheric.net. Let me know what you think and if you’re into writing, be sure to leave a comment. 🙂
Speaking of writing… I’ve been working on a novel. I wrote one a long time ago when I was 14, but it was terrible. The plot was awful and there was just too much dialogue throughout the entire story. The novel I’m working on has about 8,000 words now. I wrote the first chapter about a month ago when I suddenly felt inspired to write. I don’t really want to share this story, but I’ll definitely share the news if it gets published or not. I’ve got a long way to go but I’m glad I’ve found my writing roots again. ☺️
Also, for those of you who are always surprised about the number of domains I have – I’ve revamped my domain collective that is Georgie.nu. It looks classier now (or so I hope!), and more organised. Some of my domains aren’t listed there as I’m going to be getting rid of them soon. Let me know what you think! 😉
