When I realised holidays were coming up, when I realised we were getting two weeks off, my thoughts were probably the exact opposite of everyone else in this situation -
I thought, ‘What the hell am I gonna do with two weeks off?’
Well, the answer soon became clear – Practically nothing.
Last night, however, I actually got out of the house and did the whole hang out with people thing.
I went down to the comedy festival and saw a show. It was hilarious and good. Then, had a few drinks with people until around 2 in the morning.
I spent a fair amount of time talking to some guy – a friend of a friend – about John Waters films. He’d just started seeing them and invited me along to some screenings happening soon.
So, might be a new thing to get me out of the house more often, who knows. People always like you more when you just listen to them talk.
I’ve also used the holidays to get some nice long walks into the city going – which I need to do more of because chunky is a bit chunky.
But I’ve still spent too much time watching downloaded movies and shows and need to keep the video player off more often. It’s amazing how much time slips past when you have distractions going on.
The other thing is – apart from last night – my drinking too much has really stopped. No really effort involved on my part, I just haven’t felt like it. In fact, I’ve still got a bottle of wine in the fridge from a week or so ago… Weird.
Anyway, my last couple of days of holidays will be spent on school stuff. Kind of.
I have a painting that I’ve been working on for the last week and apart from my face (I hate my face! It’s just not working out!) it’s going okay.
I also have to try and work out what I’m doing for sculpture class and I wanted to have another print ready for print making.
