Merry Christmas

DSC_0178DSC_0161DSC_0141DSC_0166DSC_0210DSC_0064 DSC_0157 December is officially the month that I become extremely lazy with posting. I think it's the break from university which means that I'm not procrastinating on my laptop as much as I am during the semester. December has been a month of ups and downs, in all honesty I haven't really accomplished a great deal but I guess I'm just getting over the strain of second semester (... that's what they all say). I started enthusiastically on my long list of books to read, however stopped short when I really wasn't too much of a fan of the first book I dug into, Norwegian Wood. However, I've been forced into starting On The Road by my boyfriend who is in love with it. In all honesty, the only reason why I caved after many years of resistance is because I'd like to be able to critique it with honest examples. I've watched two films this month as well, Melancholia and We Need To Talk About Kevin a couple of weeks ago. They were both incredibly intense and stressful films, and I still don't know exactly what I think about them, so I'll leave any thoughts about them for another time (maybe a day when my stomach is a little less filled).

Anyways, these snaps are all photos from my Christmas lunch which was filled with oysters, lobster, tomato salads, ham and sashimi. It has left me about 5kg heavier and completely satisfied. And finally, I leave you with some few family snaps from my Christmas lunch:

Surprise flowers

DSC_0048 I received flowers for passing my driving test yesterday, wooooo! Other than that, holidays have been nice. Haven't done too much stuff and I think I'm starting to hit a slow point in terms of running out of things to do (slash becoming sick of being in the house all day long) but I really shouldn't be complaining. Uni will be coming around quickly. Going out for taco's tonight with a bunch of friends from uni, yummy.

There's never really many snaps of me on this blog, besides from photobooth snaps, because Viv always takes them and never uploads them. So I've stolen some from her flickr. These are snaps from over a year ago when every friday night we used to grab chai tea from tiger tiger.

Iku Sushi and whatnot

Viv and I had a lazy Thursday shopping slash errands fest. I ended up purchasing all these cheap silk shirts from a vintage store on William street called Miss Brown (it was so cute, I really should've asked to take snaps but it didn't occur to me at the time) which will be really cool to wear in the summertime. Then we lunched at Iku Sushi, also on William street. It's famous for its cheeseburger sushi but I've never been game enough to try it, there bento boxes with classic teriyaki chicken and fish are good and cheap.

The summer so far has been fairly lazy, Ive almost finished Norwegian Wood but I'm slowing down a little bit because it's starting to drag and become too crazy for my liking. I think I'm going to tackle Love in the Time of Cholera next, I've tried it once but couldn't get past the first chapter.
