I'm a blog hog

Thursday, October 28, 2010

But I just had to tell someone! And the boyfriend is asleep and no one I know likes 1am texts!

There was a house that we were looking at a few weeks ago. Everytime we inquired we couldn't view (holiday weekend etc) and we were sure that the place would be snapped up before we were free to see it. Which was a shame, because it is such a cute little house and very close to the beach etc. Well, just doing my listing checks like I usually do and I see that not only is it still avaliable it has gone DOWN in price, by $15 a week. Making it $5 a week UNDER what we can happily spend. You bet I sent off an email saying that I wanted to see it this weekend. I will also be calling the agent tomorrow and possibly be sending a smoke signal. This place looks sooooo much better than the other one, and now it is still avaliable AND its cheaper. OMG. I'm so excited. Now I won't be able to sleep and I'll have dreams about this cute little house being ripped from my grips. This place is only 2 streets away from the other one, so it has the same location benefits and its cuter and I want it waaaaaaaaaay more than the other one.

EEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

The end

Done, done, done!!!!!!!!!!!

Thursday, October 28, 2010

Hell freakin yeah people. Last assignment done! 1 presentation which is pretty much in the bag and I am done! YAHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Ahem.

In other news, I really liked the place I viewed today...from the outside. The real estate agent (after being 30 minutes late and us having to travel 40 minutes out of our way) didn't bring the right keys. How many languages can you say frustrating in? She was very nice and lovely and said sorry a million times, but still it was a bit annoying. We will be viewing the inside (we hope!) on Saturday and as far as we are aware no one else will be shown the flat because we are pretty sure we want it and its not our fault that we couldn't see it today. However on to the good! From the outside it looks very big. It is 2 bedrooms with a lounge and kitchen (no dining room, which is fine because we are selling our dining table). And the walkablity is awesome. We are less then 10 minutes walk from 2 beaches and about 20 minutes walk from the centre of town and apart from the hill that we are on it is all very flat. We would have to walk up a hill coming home but besides that it is all nice and flat! I could go for some lovely walks and runs and I could start using my bike again! To say I want this place is an understatement!

In health news, tomorrow is startover day. I have been eating badly and not exercising for 2 weeks and tomorrow it ends! I'm going to have breakfast, pack some snacks for uni and drink at least 2 bottles of water. Then after uni I WILL go for a walk. Running will start again next week and I hope I haven't lost all my fitness! I am so sick of how I feel right now, bloated and yucky. I wanna feel fit and healthy again! Lets get back to it people.

New house, new job, new body, same (awesome emoticon) me!

Neeeeeeeeeeeearly done

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

With uni that is!

So healthy eating and working out is not happening. I blame the stress, but that is just a cop out. It is just because I have gotten lazy and can't be bothered. Because of the stress.

Maths assignment handed in today, and if I was at all religious I would have said a prayer at the drop box. It is going to take a miracle to get me through this one!

I just have one more assignment (technology) and a group presentation (deafness) left for the year! AND I was way early for uni today coz my group meeting was cancelled, then uncancelled but I didn't know, do I had 3 hours to do nothing but my assignment. I'm nearly done. Score!

And thats my life. I've sent out a million house inquiries so hopefully we can find a nice place that is in our price range. Fingers crossed people! The one we wanted was taken, as I was rudely told this morning. I called up to check and the woman told me it had gone. I just said that it was a shame coz we were very interested and she said "Yeah, well, its gone". Yep, thanks, got that. Then I called a lovely lady who was only too happy to help me arrange a viewing of another place :)

OK, off to watch Desperate Housewives. I loooooooooove that show!

    Well done on completing the assignment, and I wouldn't worry about the flat. From what you say, the landlady doesn't sound exactly wonderful. :-) Somewhere much better will turn up, I'm sure. :-)

Maths, BBF's gig and a house!

Sunday, October 24, 2010

Righto. This will be a very disjointed and badly written post. I have been essay writing for 7 hours today and the words don't come out good.

Maths assignment sucks. Seriously. I hate it. I have to make up lessons for imaginary kids and then justify my choices. And I really don't have great justifications. I'm planning a class warm up of 21 because kids love it. Justified? Hopefully.

I went to my BBF's gig today and then we went to dinner. The gig was more of a practice session infront of people, but it was good and I'm excited for the actual gig on Friday. After fireworks. Her band plays covers and they are pretty good, but I have zero musical talent. Dinner was tapas. We love tapas. We get to have a little bit of lots of things :)

I went out for dinner last night too, to celebrate my new job. I may have had a cocktail. And dessert. Yeah, this whole healthy lifestyle thing ain't quiet happening right now. Maybe next week will be better :)

We may have found a house! Well, a flat. It is a downstairs flat and there is another flat above. It is below our budget and 2 bedrooms and in the suburb we wanna live it. And because it is so affordable we wouldn't have to get a flatmate! Score. I have emailed and hopefully I will hear back Tuesday and we can view it and move in! I haven't even seen it and I want it. I hope it is good. And that they allow cats. It didn't say no cats....

Thats all she wrote...Back soon with actual sentences

I GOT THE JOB!!!!!!!

Saturday, October 23, 2010

See title.

I am so cool right now. All employed. At a job I think I'm really, really gonna like.

So I went for a third interview. I think the manager was impressed that i dragged my ass up to the shop on a Saturday afternoon. Gotta go above and beyond, people!

I had all the right answers and impressed the interviwer so much that he offered me the job right there and then when he had said he would probably get back to me next week when we first sat down.

The pay is good, the bonuses are great and the staff discount is incredible!

Happy, happy me!
