Lists of lists

Feels like I am living by lists... I have one for almost everything. One for work (down to 50 actionable cases... from 185 a week before quarter end... Go me!), one for uni - actually two for uni, one for each subject. I have a "to-buy-for my new place" list, grocery list... the list of lists continues! I celebrate a little every time I get to cross something off. Love the feeling of one less thing I need to accomplish! I heard a saying "If you want to get something done, give it to a busy person" the meaning is that, busy people do things the second they get a free moment while people who are not busy will continue to put jobs off until they can be bothered... I am a busy person but I don't think anyone should give me anything more to do. This juggler is about 2 balls away from dropping the whole lot.

I am a happy little vegemite today! I did get a full 8 hours sleep last night which is one big reason but also because I have bought the couch that I wanted (thank you Grandpa!) and am just waiting for Saturday so that I can go to pick it up. Excited isn't even close to how I feel about it! I will put photos up of it when it is in my apartment. So that is one thing off my new apartment list. I am going to put up the last set of curtains tonight. I have been avoiding it because this particular window is a little tricky because it doesn't have enough room around the edges and I think that it is mostly painted concrete so, not so easy to drill a hole through without a buzz buzz drill and even then I am not sure that you can drill through concrete?

My friend from Brisbane came to Melbourne on Friday so I had an opportunity to show him around. We went to the city, he got to go on a tram which he thought was very exciting. Matt is the biggest child I have ever met, seriously - he measures about 6"8' and is built like a brick-shithouse (that has to be the most Australian term, so sorry to be crass but I love it!) but mentally, he is a 2 year old trapped in a mans body.  The bonus here is: Anything boring gets only a couple of seconds attention so we only did fun stuff. He likes to talk and drink coffee... a lot, so we drank a lot of coffee and had a proper catch up (it's been almost 4 years), we went to Luna Park and he didn't laugh at me when I wanted to see the snow (because he also wanted to see the snow) ... as it turns out, the snow was a sand-pit full of ice but different enough to be interesting anyway.  We spent far more money than we should have on a claw machine and low and behold... no toy. We had dinner at a place called Abbey Road which was really nice, with another friend. The theme of the resteraunt is a bit like the theme for Hard Rock Cafe and the food was massive. Don't remember prices but was very impressed.

Not much else going on, other than working and studying... in fact I am putting together a web page for one of my uni assignments. It's a lot of work for a first year subject but I am getting there slowly. Only 6 months left before I am done and I get the piece of paper saying "congratulations you now have a degree". I can't think of the words to describe how happy that will make me!

Loving this song at the moment:

xox Love to all
