This is the beautiful city I spent the last few days at. These aren’t my photos...while I took A LOT I am a terrible photographer and didn’t do justice to Perth at all, so I decided to let more talented people do my work for me.
Remember the short-story competition I mentioned? Well my lovely father had some frequent flyer points, and since we have never really spent any time together just us, off we went on an adventure. While I didn’t win (I did get a commendation though, which I was pretty excited about!) it was wonderful. Lots of wine, cheese and crackers thanks to the Qantas club, days spent exploring the city and eating at Paris-style cafes, catching up with extended family, and looking around the university; which I automatically fell in love with. (photos 1,4,5 & 6...Blogger is being lame and won't let me move them around)
Isn’t it just beautiful? Who wouldn’t be motivated to study in a lovely place like that?
On another note, having a break did give me a chance to do some thinking about this blog. It has been difficult to get motivated to post; it’s hard not to ignore it in lieu of school, writing and life. So I have decided to have a different ‘theme’ for each day. This way my posts will be shorter, less time-consuming to write and (hopefully) snappier, as well as much more frequent.
So, here’s the plan thus far, though I’m sure it will change often!
Mondays: Inspiration (quotes, pictures, music etc.)
Wednesdays: ‘Article’ type posts
Thursdays: Health. This will include a lot of different things, like recipes, links, and discussions about issues surrounding body image etc.
Friday: Miscellaneous. But after reading High Fidelity, I will be posting a few lists, because I love lists, and I love reading people’s lists.
And that’s the plan. I will read and comment on everyone’s blogs as much as possible; however I found that trying do it every day is impossible. I don’t want to just skim read people’s posts and write one word responses. I really do enjoy all of your blogs and want to soak up as much of them as I can. So I won’t be commenting as often as I am posting, but I promise I will always respond to your comments, even if it takes me a couple of days.
Photo links in order (it won't let me link either! Grr...)
