August!!


Its was officially AUGUST 2010!! What the?? Its gone sooo fast and I have already accomplished so much this year so far and still so much yet to come. Ok so ive been in love, ive fallen out of love, ive been half way around the world and back, ive made friends and ive lost friends, ive been out drinking more times then I can remember, ive had the best times and the worst times. So although I have done so much year to date I still have 2 more fantastic things to do this year along with a few other things that aren’t so fantastic… Fantastic thing number 1 is jetting off to New Zealand in 2 weeks time to see snow for the first time and fall over skiing and all those fun things. Fantastic thing number 2 is celebrating my 21st birthday in September!! Not very far away now and its going to be a whirl wind 2 weeks that’s for sure. Something ill never remember with friends ill never forget. Hahaha. I love looking back over this year because 2010 has been the best year of my life so far and it can only get better from here. Once im 21 I can officially go to the USA and drink until my hearts content and that is exactly what ill be doing in 2011. So like I said its only going to get better from here. New York, New York I can hear u calling meeeeeee. I want to be awake all night long in the city that doesn’t sleep!!

Four Thursdays Have Passed.....


Well I have now been single for 3 whole weeks but 4 thursdays.

It has gone so quick i couldnt even believe it when i realised today. I have been keeping myself pretty busy but at the same time ive been home alone a lot with my puppy. Im so glad i have my puppy jasper because he takes a lot of my attention and I love having something to come home to everyday. This weekend is the Townsville Cup, so horse races. To boys it means gambling and beer, to girls it means a chance to get dressed up and drink wine with friends. Me and my friends will be man hunting. There are not many tales to tell from the last 3 weeks, I have been hanging out with a specific guy but we are just bed buddies =P i told him i dont want to date and i dont want to get serious because im jetting off to New Zealand next month and i want to have fun hehe

Anyway im sure there will be tales to come.

Single Much?


News Flash, Drama Addict and Drama King have split!!

How does a drama addict be single? I know, go out and party it up and flirt with lots of boys to make new drama. Turns out Drama King was just not the right guy for me so time to live it up, have fun and be young. I am travelling the world more in the next year so probably for the best i dont have anyone tying me down. So I just cant help myself ive already been chatting with a new boy and it may have gone a little further then chatting but i dont want to jump on in to another relationship. So what do i do? I like the attention but im scared if i tell him i dont want a relationship he might loose interest. Gahhhhh single life is already getting the best of me!! I just dont want to casually stroll back into being someones girlfriend without even knowing!!

Help Me!!!!!

Home Aloneeeeeeee


Soooo Drama King has gone away to visit his family for a wholeeeee week and im home alone, eeeeek. I dont know how to feel about it at all. Im sure you know the feeling when you live with someone, you cant wait to get a moment alone just to do what you want to do. Well now i have that moment, a whole week of moments and im sort of wondering what i should do. To him i was like awww ill miss you but have fun and in my head i was thinking, yes now i get some alone time, and now night time has come and im sitting here thinking, hmmmm now what?? what was i dying to do that i couldnt do with Drama King at home?? Gosh i dont even know now!!

All the house work is done, ive got no new dvds to watch, i ordered sims three online last week but it still hasnt come in the mail. I did just borrow a new book from my mum called "The Carrie Diaries" which is about Carrie before sex and the city when she was a teenager, but i feel like if i spend my alone time reading somehow it would be a waste, even though i love reading. Oh i dont know!!

What do you do when you get alone time? (non sexual things) haha

Paris


So where we last left off was on the ferry going over the English Channel, when we arrived in France it felt like any other place until we got on the road, after driving about an hour we stopped off at a mini-shopping complex thing that had a fuel station and like a supermarket and the french fast food chain which is called Quick (i think)..anyway we were all so nervous because our tour guide had told us the french are rude to you if you dont even try to speak a bit of french to them and just assume they speak english, so she taught us the basics, French lesson 101----->> Bonjour= Hello, Auvior= Goodbye, Wee= Yes, Merci= Thank-you. Ok so we walk into Quick and want to order some lunch, I walk up the the register and of course the whole menu is in french, so i have to go by what the pictures look like and i try and read/point to what i want and the register girl catches on and she knows what im after, and after the difficulty of establishing i wanted coke as the drink she brought the drink over and put it on the tray waiting for the rest of my food, me being thirsty of course went to pick up the drink coz id already paid for my food and as luck would happen the darling register girl hadnt put the lid on properly so the coke spilt all over the counter all over my bag and on the floor because when i picked it up the lid came off and i dropped it. After tryiny to apologise the girl ushered me on after getting me another coke and there i was thinking, no wonder the french hate tourists, although it was only partly my fault i knew the first impressions had already been done and dusted..

So after our stop we continued on in the bus to Paris, now when we actually arrived in Paris the traffic was so horrendous in actually took us like an hour just to get to the hotel, and oh boy were we dissapointed, the room was so small!! and there idea of a double bed is pushing two single beds together. So once we put our luggage in the room we had no room to walk around at all and our room smelt like smoke so we spent minimal time in their needless to say. On the first night when we arrived our tour guide took us on a city tour around Paris in the bus. She was babbling about different things we were passing and all of a sudden everyone gets all excited because we caught our first glimpse of the eiffel tower, and oh gosh its beautiful at night, every hour on the hour it sparkles for 1 minute and it had caught our eye on the sparkling minute, ill never forget it. They took us around to get photos but its really hard to get a good picture of it at night. During the city tour we also stopped at a resturant and got a free sample of a french delecacy....snails.. all i have to say is they tasted like chewy garlic.. needless to day i dont think id ever eat them again.

The next day our contiki tour group all got together in front of the eiffel tower for a group picture and then we had the day to ourselves, the first thing we did was to go up the eiffel tower, we went up to level two and that was sooo high up and soo windy i was scared to go near the edges but i still got some good photos. After the eiffel tower we decided to go for a walk and find somewhere to eat lunch and oh boy did we find somewhere. The cafe where we had lunch was very lovely until we got the bill, for 3 glasses of coke it cost 22 Euro!! Needless to say after that we always asked how much drinks cost before buying them. After lunch we went and saw the arc de triumph which was cool then went down the very upmarket major shopping street in paris. That night we got to go and see the Moulin Rouge which was definantly something i wont forget, we got a 3 course meal then saw the show and there were a lot of boobs and bums!! After the show our group went into a close by pub for some drinks, we all got extremely drunk and stumbled our way out of a taxi at our hotel at about 4am.

Well the next day Drama King was sooo hungover so he didnt leave the hotel the whole day, but i went to see the lourve in the morning and it is sooo massive!! I got lost in the ancient egypt wing so most of my photos are from there, but i did manage to find the paintings so i could see the mona lisa. To be honest i was a little dissapointed, its the smallest painting, behind a thick layer of glass and theres a rope around it so you cant get closer then 2 metres to it. So I didnt really get a good photo of it, its the sorta thing that you see and thats it, youve seen it. The lourve was pretty boring for the fact that i was on my own and everything was written in french. I bought an english guide book with the major pieces in it and there were better pictures in the book then i was taking so im glad i bought it. In the afternoon we got to go to the palace of versaille, which before i went to paris id never heard of but it was definantly a highlight of Paris for me. Its the palace which louis 14th and marie antoinette lived and we got to go inside and have a local guide take us through it. It was seriously amazing, if ever in paris definantly go there!!

The next day we went to see notre damn which was absolutly amazing aswell, all the stained glass windows were beautiful and im not religious but i still loved it, we also got to see the venus bridge which the locals know as the bridge of love, it was very pretty. Something about Paris is that there is a lot of gold around the place. Everywhere you look theres something gold and the love bridge was no exception. Also something else about Paris is there are alot of scams going on and people that are trying to pick pocket you. So you cant just sit back and enjoy yourself, you have to always be thinking safe. But Paris is the most visited tourist destination in the whole world so what else could you expect? It just really opened our eyes to how unsafe places like that are, in broad daylight i did not feel safe walking down the street alone. That night we boarded the overnight train to go to our next destination...ROME!!!!!

Life as a new puppy owner....


Well i now have only a few pair of good shoes for the very fact that my puppy has chewed through most of them. I just dont get it, ive bought him many a chew toy in all differnet shapes and forms yet he still finds pleasure in chewing my shoes. Ive had to lock most of them up in my cubboard but the whereabouts of your shoes isnt something that you think about all the time so he still gets his paws on them. So when hes not chewing hes attempting to bite my fingers off. I think when i pat him he somehow thinks im trying to play with hinm and proceeds to bite any part of me he can. Can i feel the love? Call me crazy but yes, yes i can. Its hard to be mad at him because hes so cute. His name is Jasper and hes a mini foxy.


Now the responsibilty of owning a new puppy doesn't end at feeding it and walking it every day, its like bringing a new baby home from the hospital. It actually consumes you life for the first month or so. He actually crys when we are about to leave the house or when we go to bed. So most nights he takes up residence in our bed but Drama King got sick of that because Jasper had a little accident in the bed..OOPS.. it was not pleasent because toilet training a puppy is hard and it takes a lot of commitment because they dont have a very good short term memory so i still have to get him into a routine of going outside so when he gets older and has bladder control he doesnt go all through the house he'll wait until we get home or wake up before he goes. GOSH i cant wait for that day. Owning a puppy is also not cheap, on top of what it cost to buy jasper, obviously you have to buy all their toys, there carrier case and bed, their food and take them to the vet for puppy vacinations. My wallet is definantly a whole lot lighter since we got him. But he makes life more fun when hes around, he loves the beach so we take him for walks down to the dog beach on the weekends so he can socialise with the other dogs. Because hes so little he gets really scared when the big dogs come and try and play with him, and so do i, haha, they could eat him for breakfast. But he loves it and i love watching him play.

So although there are a lot of negatives of owning a new puppy there are also a lot of positives.

Yes, Yes I do work in a call centre...


You know how every time you go to the movies and you order a medium drink and popcorn because to be honest no, i dont want to spend $12.00 on a large because i simply wont get through it and the girl at the counter always without fail asks you to upgrade for just an extra 0.50c? Why on earth do we say YES!! Those girls are making our nations fatter!! And in any other situation when someone trys to get just a little bit more out of me i'd normally refuse and come sulking back at a later date to purchase the thing i didnt think that i wanted but all of a sudden need so badly. But not to movie girls, the words NO just dont come out, normally its probably because im not really paying attention until after the fact because hey its just 0.50c? Well that surely adds up, maybe not in your wallet but definantly on the scales!! All i have to say about that is that cinemas makes a lot of money from upgrades..

Now working in a call centre is very very similar to working at a cinema except for some key differences, we dont get to see free movies, we get paid a lot more money and we work regular hours. Now i do not in any way envy the girl behind the counter at a cinema but i get where there coming from, its just like the mc donalds guy asking if you want fries with that?? Now my call centre specialises in telecommunications and the company will remain unnamed for pure fact that it would be naughty of me to mention their name. My area is sales, so all day long we wait for people to call us and want to buy stuff from us so really my job is not the hardest job in the book. The hard part is the targets we need to meet (to many to mention) so when someone calls to connect a home phone its our duty to say do you want fries with that (so to speak). There are sooo many options for a home phone as well as broadband, mobiles, pay tv..and the list goes on. Now a lot of people i know who work in night clubs, retail or are unemployed generally have a much more scandalous life the call centre like. The most scandalous thing thats happened so far since ive been there is a married female manager started dating a not so married male manager. OMG!! HOE!! haha

Now in my line of work you really do come across some weird characters, for example one of my friends at work had a really weird guy one day and because she sits near me i heard it all. So what i'll do is re-create some of the coversation...

My Friend: Welcome to ***** , How can I help you today?
Customer: Take off your shoes
My Friend: Actually sir I cannot take off my shoes due to health and saftey, how can i help you today?
Customer: Just take off your shoes
My Friend: (wanting to move on with the call told the customer she took off her shoes, but she didnt) Ok there off, how can I help?
Cutomer: (customer then started what would become a half hour call saying he jumped out of a car once and had a mental problem)
My Friend: (didnt actually need him to admit to that because it was farely obvious)
Customer: (breathing heavily into the phone and seemed breathless, asking at regular intervals if my friend was still there as she was silent talking to us telling us how weird the guy was)

Eventually my friend went and got our manager to take over the call coz the guy was getting weirder by the second and he hung up at that point...

Just another day in the office,
