my female orc shaman from WoW, Shadiou. She is tough, bad-ass and after 5 years together I feel like I know her really well. She could also heal me up when I'm feeling unwell and beat up all the people who annoy me :D

|Relationship dramas (or why do I do these things to myself) part 1

So back in January, January 21st to be exact, my long term boyfriend Ryan and I broke up. It was a long distance relationship for the entire time, with me visiting him in Brisbane 5 times. He never came to Perth.|
It was a really tough break up for me and I was pretty heart broken. It was the first time that I've had that happen to me, that feeling of having my heart ripped out of my chest and I was inconsolable. I remember trying to head home, being pretty much booted out the door of his car at the airport and locking myself in the toilets there for the 2 hours before the plane while sobbing my heart out.

1. How many clowns would it take to freak you out?
It only takes one.
2. What is your favorite card game?
4. Five things you can touch right now without getting up.
Styrofoam cup of coffee, laptop, iPhone, bottle of water and my work timesheet (I have to list what I'm doing in chargeable 6 minute increments. I don't think browsing LJ can go no there though, sadly).
5. You have to be somewhere on the fourth floor of a building. Do you take the lift/elevator?
Definitely the lift. I have high heels on today!
6. How do you feel about your reflection?
Great. I used to sit in front of a large mirror at work all day long and once you've seen yourself eating, chewing, drinking and talking you lose all fear of the reflection.
7. What are you thinking about right now?
How much work I have to do :(
8. Write the first word that comes to mind.
9. Dog person or cat person?
Mainly cats, but I love my one special baby-dog Toby
10.If you came across $2,000 (or other currency) would you keep it or turn it in?
I'd probably turn it in, if after 6 months no one has collected it, it would be mine mine mine!
11.What was the last thing that you bought?
Cake & Coffee for my friend Angela and I yesterday
12.If you could afford to go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
San Gimingiano in Italy. For pastries.
13.Where do you see yourself in five years?
Even better than I am now! Hopefully settled into a great career, hopefully married or in a committed relationship with all my friends and loved ones healthy!
14.Last book you've read?
To my embarassment, Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkhaban. Brendan bought it for me...
15.What are you doing this weekend?
Hopefully spending some time with my lovely boyfriend on Friday night, having loads of wine and pasta, sleeping in, going to a quiz night on Saturday, meeting on Sunday morning followed by baking and board games!
16.If you could play any musical instrument, which one would you play?
None but I'd really, really like to have a beautiful singing voice.
17.How are you?
Exhausted, worried about my career and wondering how to wangle a pair of 150 pound boots from an online shop....

How to enjoy Xmas food without the guilt:
1. Eat whatever you want. You’re a grown-up, and it’s your fucking stomach.
2. Enjoy your food.
3. Stop eating when you’re full.
4. If you don’t manage to stop eating when you’re full, don’t worry about it. Nobody does on
5. Do not feel guilty about any of the above. You’re a grown-up, and it’s your fucking stomach.

I hate it when big decisions have to be made!
I'm in a position now where I can't keep going on with my current workload. Masters thesis and 40 hours a week work (2 part time jobs) just ain't doing it for me anymore. This kinda workload pretty much means that nothing gets done as well as it should. I keep juggling and dropping all the balls.
So I can keep working at the Boarding House next year, they love me. They love me so much that they are INCREASING my hours to 20 hours a week from 12. This will give me a whole $200 a week to live on.
RMD House also love me. I could keep working there for the (relatively nice) $420 a week. But I won't have anywehre to live.
I can't keep doing both. Or maybe I can. Money is nice and it buys me clothes. But rest is nice and it makes me happy. But then clothes also make me happy. Ugh, just to re-iterate I hate making decisions.
