University is so much fun! It's exhausting to spend all day there and then go to work all night but I think I'll adjust. Yup, yup. Everyone is so friendly that I haven't had any real problems settling in at all. A lot of people are as confused as I am when it comes to their future career so I don't feel too left out. :P

(I'm sure it will take a few more listens before I start to like the new Tori Amos album.)

Children like a companion they can hold, and cuddle. That's why stuffed animals are so popular. Rabbits are not passive and cuddly. They are ground-loving creatures who feel frightened and insecure when held and restrained. The result: the child loses interest, and the rabbit ends up neglected or abandoned.

Monday will be the second anniversary of Icarus being adopted! Two years!

I'm making seedcake!

I can't believe it's been so long. It really doesn't FEEL like two years. I love how they told me she was a boy so I struggled with boy names. Stupid pet store chain. I've been there recently and they have a lot of older cockatiels that have been there for ages - a few have mites and I don't think they are getting treated. I wish I could adopt them all but it's not possible. Stupid pet owners and stupid pet stores/breeders shit me.

Look at the comments - I've been on some people's friends list for over two years. Some of you've I've known for a lot longer! That's kinda nice.

I've spent this evening cleaning up and organising my room - quite fitting to remove the clutter on the first day of the new year. Even more fitting because people were starting to play "What's that smell?" in my room. (I wish that was a joke..) Next is my car because I can't actually take any passengers because of all the clutter. Erm, I am the worst at organising. I wasn't going to do this but there is a growing list of things I resolve to do this year. Like..keep all important documents together, stop losing things, start checking my balance instead of hoping that if I don't look my financial situation wouldn't be so bad etc.

Aside from being more neat and tidy, I am going to look after myself better this year. I'm not talking about any weight loss thing, I'm just starting to wonder about my health. I had to be sent home from work today because I was in agony, and if a group of nurses tell you to get checked out then you do it.

Finally - I am going to be more fun. "What?!" you might yell. "EVEN MORE FUN?!" Yes! I'm going to see how long I can make it until I say "Awwww, but I have to work.." this year. I'm not expecting miracles though. (Though a persons definition of fun might differ to mine.) Being more fun also means spending more fun time with my family who no doubt miss having me around.

I think that is it. OH - and to get on better with my Dad. And save money so that I can travel. If I do get into uni I want to do well, and if I don't I want to be able to figure out where exactly I should go from here. Fuck for someone who said resoloutions were dumb I've made a shitload. Happy new year, lovelies!

My 21st was beautiful..I had a romantic seafood platter lunch, I caught up with friends at the Monash multimedia graduates exhibition (and got the thrill of seeing myself up on the big screen as a model in one of Lilyfarts projects..and you should have seen her face when she won an AWARD). I also was treated to a night in a lovely fancy room at the Windsor Hotel with all the room service I could handle. That place was all class, I still have dreams about that perfect bathroom. I took all the complimentary items I could back home with me as a pressie for Ma. The next day Julian and I went shopping. It was a whole heap of fun.

Then there was the 21st party which went fantastically. Everything and everyone looked beautiful. It turned out to be a huge high school reunion. Julian gave a gushing speech that everyone is still talking about. My ice cream cake melted. I received some thoughtful gifts...now don't be lecturing me for mentioning the gifts, I'm being grateful not shallow! I have a beautiful piece of Lily's artwork on my wall.

So that is the birthday round up. Oh, I also looked spectacular.

The letters arrived in the mail several days later - the letters that would be determining what I could be doing for the rest of my life. (I'm being dramatic.) Basically they were from the University letting me know if they have accepted me to study next year. I pulled an extra long shift at work and it was agony knowing they were lying on the kitchen bench at home, unopened, while I had to pretend to be enthusiastic about patients and review appointments and filing and the whole job thing until I could get home. When I got home I was shaking as I teared them open but found it to be the most anti - climatic moment of my life. They read that I will be informed about getting into University in JANUARY. A letter - telling me to wait another month and a half for the results to be printed in the newspaper.

Why the fuck did they waste the money on postage is what I'd like to know.

Still, a B and a couple of Z letters is no C letter.

My first real birthday party is coming up on Sat and everything is pretty much done and ready. Semi formal, cocktails, ice cream cake. Screams class, right? Right! 21st fun! (Though unlike many of you, I have been able to legally drink for years now so it's not that big a deal. Er, not that drinking is a big deal to begin with.)

But for now I am expecting a very romantical day with my boyfriend woofing down a seafood platter at Tides in Port Melbourne. I am told the area is very nice..it might be the only part of Melbourne I haven't discovered yet. So YAY...YAY for me. YAY for you. YAY!

I'm doing the card thing again so email me with your addy: petadempsey@hotmail.com. I send rather cheesy cards, so get in and laugh. Some of you have moved since last Yule so you better fucking email me or I will be forced to email you - that will be a social faux pas and no one really wants that.

Oh..I have every, single, episode of Sex and the City and I think the endless watching and re-watching has made me quite mad. I am having strange dreams. I'm also starting to wonder how messed up and sooky these characters are. Still, it's fun. Quite, quite mad.

(Edit: fixed spelling of BOYFRIENDS to BOYFRIEND. Oh, my!)

An interview with Aaron McKinney? Is that even legal considering the agreement made? :( I've sent an email to 20/20.

I got this from the boyo. (He loves me.) It is so very massive in my room, this photo in no way does it justice. It's one of my favourite works of art, I was so amused by Litchenstein in highschool. A certain other famous pop artist can kiss my ass.

Can you see Icaroo inspecting the goods? She approves highly. Right now she is meditating to soothing Bjork, the beebs love it.

I keep buying books that I could never hope to find the time to read, it's become a nasty little habit. The backlog of books on my shelf that I have yet to finish just ain't funny! I'm starting to run out of storage space, my room is looking a little odd. Half the stuff I buy turns out to be a piece of shit which doesn't help. Any book recomendations would be appreciated, although you'd have to realise you are supporting a nasty habit that was brought on by Borders and Amazon.com.

This may sound cheesier than a Dan Brown novel, (Oh, snap!) but I am really going to be sad when it comes to the last episode of Sex and the City. Call me superficial but it was something that my friends and I always enjoyed. Norah is planning on cocktails for the last episode, which sounds like a fair way to see it off. To make things even CHEESIER (yes, it's possible I assure you!) we kinda allocated characters to eachother in highschool*. You know, four of us, four of them. Yes, judge me I deserve it.

(Guess who I am.)

I'm going to try and get through some more of "The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" which is just my kind of humour. My backlog of crappy books can wait for this one. (Or, this FIVE. Lord help me.)

*Yes, I realise highschool was three years ago and that I should get over it.

Oh, oh, oh I've done something stupid again. So stupid. I can't even count now the amount of times I've gotten myself into trouble. You try to be so careful so that everything happens the way it should and then before you know it you've done something, or said something. And there is a person standing infront of you giving you that look. You know, the "You've offended me/you've done something stupid/you've lost your mind" look. And your having this conversation with your head, and your head is saying something like "I can't leave you alone for two minutes without you doing something stupid." Yeah, I don't know what I mean either.

Icarus has learnt how to break out of her cage, in other news. I'm going to wait until my sister and her boyfriend go to bed and steal their Coca Cola.

I had to edit this to correct my use of the wordas "You're/Your". Now I really feel bad.
