Never know what you might find...

I've finished all my uni exams as of this moment. (well, for this year anyway.) I drove through the city yesterday. What a frustrating operation that is. When it takes 10 minutes to get 100 meters, road rage makes sense. The lights are the most frustrating thing, because they seemed to always be red as i reached them. Grr. Last week i had to drive through the city and it took me half an hour to get through the centre. Were talking a 5 minute drive with little traffic. 10 minutes at one intersection, because there was no turn arrow. Just makes you mad. Me mad. I'm not used to waiting that long, being a country girl and all.

My home sickness has gone somewhat. It was so good to go home finally, you know how when you are a little depressed and then just a string of little things make it worse, and then finally you start interpretating things in the worst way. It was all making me a little crazy. This guy at work, he is the worst i swear...he is so damn important. He doesn't shower i swear. He is trying to make me stay in melbourne to work over christmas, when all i want to do is go home for a while. I was going to cry with frustration that he doesn't understand.posted by Sarah | 4:16:00 PM

I am bloody homesick. Two weeks to go till exams are over, and the list of things to get done it a mile long, and i am sure I have forgotten something. The amount of work for the exams soon, (ahhhhh) is very very (ahhhh) big. Almost too big. Sigh. I just want to go home. I am sick of working, and sick of studying, but the playing is good. I played in brass class today, and it felt good to play. I feel confident. So that's what practice is for. I think though, that everyone in the class has inferiority problems, that they think everyone is so much better than them, and what if I got up to play and nothing came out? That's how I felt when i watched people play, I wanted to pick up my own instrument just to make sure that I can still make it work.

Do you ever have those days when people will just talk to you? Yesterday was one of those days when I just have strangers asking me a few questions and then they start telling me their life story and they just talk and talk about anything. And usually I just listen. Maybe that's it, they just want someone to talk to. Maybe they just see that I'm the kind of person who will let them talk. Its weird that some days i just get everyone asking directions and all sorts of things. Random strangers.posted by Sarah | 8:00:00 PM

The sun is finally coming out! yay! University is getting harder, the assignments and lists of things to complete keep getting longer, but I am spurred on by the fact that this year will be over soon, and I will have finished the first year with honours! I have been in the library a bit lately with this assignment that has taken me a while to understand. Though it looked harder than the second choice on Mozart's Figaro, it looks like I will be at no loss for words and it should be easy to finish. I have to go compose something now, and I hope for the classes sake it dosn't sound too anal.

Well after coming back from a holiday feeling like I had too much to do, I am feeling like i have my shit together. It feels good. I got come marks back from assignments and I did really well, like 85%. The weather has been hot, but today it is cold and windy. I hate being cold. Going home this weekend to see my grandparents who have been away since may, (ha, that rhymes...hehe). Mark and his parents are coming out too. The weird bit, (or only slightly) is they all went and organised it without me. Granted I am a fair way away from it all, but hey. Nah, I like that idea, if i am serious about keeping this boy.

Back to school after a two week break. The last few weeks has been a great holiday, i enjoyed being at home, and loved to see mark more than just every other weekend. I love how I fit in with my family. Things in shepp never change, but they do. The scenery changes but every time i drive through the man street there are a few new shops, or something has closed down or moved. The new Empire trading store is the best shop!

I get lonely. Last night I played at a concert at the town hall. I rang my boyfriend and talked to him, I was so depressed I cried. I just want to go home. I am homesick. I hate it.posted by Sarah | 8:36:00 PM

There are 8 weeks left. Or not even 8 weeks. I have more things to organise right now than I have had in the entire year. Yet I feel suprisingly in control. I am going home for the next two weeks, to see Mark and my family. Where people actually care about me. I have had enough of my house. I have been asked to move out, again, this time for real, no going back. Its just that we are two different people. That and I don't think she really likes me. Good thing I had already decided, or I would have been offended. Ha.

Its nearly september, but I can't really fathom how it came to be so. Time really flies, and now I hav nearly finished a year at uni already. The work this semester is not much harder, just a little more of it and some different techniques concepts to work out in my head. Like 7th chords. They really suck.
