It’s after six, my shift at work just finished (awww. I love work ♥️) I have had an eventful week.
I only had two exams. The second one wasn’t so bad. I could have studied more than I actually did, but as for whether it would have helped me or not – I don’t really think so. The reason being that with a multiple choice exam, there isn’t much you can do to study. You just have to know your stuff, and if you know it, you should be able to pick the correct answers from the wrong ones. Given, too, that each question only has one possible answer, it sort of jogs your memory (the fact that there are options). I’m glad that’s over, and I don’t think my subjects next semester have any exams. Actually, I think one has an “informal” exam – but I will assume it’s still something I have to study for.
Recently we have had some of the windows in our house replaced, as well as the front doors. I live with my family in a rather small cottage-like house on a small street. The other houses on the street are mostly fancy duplexes or large houses. Before their time, they were small cottages too.
We’ve felt like it was too much fuss and bother to remake our home. It’s home to us, even if it isn’t a fancy mansion or a large two-storey house. So instead, we do all we can (and afford) to better it. Our front door was falling apart, and due to an accident, my brother’s window was broken… spending ten minutes opening the front door and not being able to let in sunlight through the lounge room doors that open up at the front of the house, as well as having to board up my brother’s window… it was time for us to move forward.
It was raining for the past few weeks, and early this week it rained heavily, so the windows and doors were not able to be replaced until Wednesday. Luckily, it started raining on Wednesday after the guys finished the job.
We still need to get keys cut, so I have to make sure someone is home and already inside when I get home, since I don’t have a key. Our new front door is also going to take some time getting used to, because if you exit the house and lock up, it actually locks from the inside automatically. This means that if my brother and I are inside the house and my mum leaves to go to the shops, she will have to lock us in, or we will have to lock the door from the inside.
It doesn’t seem like that big a deal – basically a reminder to always have your key on you. Which is irrelevant, considering we only have two keys for the door right now.
Regardless, the front of our house is gonna look absolutely pretty soon. :)
Tonight I’m seeing Fire! Santa Rosa, Fire! (yes that is a band) and Founds at one of my now favourite venues, The Standard. I’m tugging along my camera as usual to take photos. I finally got some business cards made too. /eee I ended up getting two orders, because I was too impatient for the first one. I then ordered another one with rush delivery. The hilarious thing is that the slow delivery one came before the rush delivery one.
Last night I spent the wee hours of the morning working on georgie.nu – which is now my photography portfolio! So please check it out and let me know what you think. :) It is only going to have concert photography, though. I will still continue to update my photoblog.
Anyway, I’d better get the hell out of the office, I need to meet Dylan at the train station for the show tonight. /wave
