Happy birthday, Simon Terry!

...and hello blog. It's been a while.

I've just returned from being out on the town with Simon Terry and his friends. I smell like cigarette. We were at a nice little bar on the main street. The owners were smart; they bought a shitty-looking building and made that the vibe. That way they didn't have to paint the walls or fix the holes in the roof! Add two bars and you've got a hipster hangout! But also, it actually had a really nice vibe. It had an awesome-sized balcony - with a g-nome. Mikey would have hated it.

Meanwhile, speaking of Parkhillians - I miss Sarah Lynch. She moved to Lightning Ridge a few weeks ago. I've applied to do prac out there so I can visit her for a few weeks. Also it's good experience, looks good on my resume, etc. etc. But mostly, Lynchy and her new cat.

While we're on the subject of school experience, I volunteered in a classroom for the term just gone. I told them I'd continue into this term. I was supposed to be there today but I felt I wasn't being utilised at all. I was there as part of the Priority Schools Program, helping kids with low literacy and numeracy skills... but I mostly just watched the teacher teach. It was like first-year observations. Every week. For two hours. So I've given up. I do need more time for uni, so it's not a huge loss, I suppose...

That's enough for now.
