Top Weekend!

This weekend was awesome!! But, I'll start with friday, chronological just makes sense, hehe!

Friday was a uni and then chill with friends day. We went and chilled at Nich's house for the last time before he goes back to Uni. Twas quite lovely. Food, friends, Wii, hubbly and blankets..what else could you ask for? Oh, and I made a bunny out of Presstick

Saturday was a flippin jol!!
My Dad, brother and I took our golden retriever, Allistar, to uShaka beach. The surf there is always super flat, and it was quite cold, so we didn't expect many people to be around and we were right. Ally freaking loved the water so much, we couldn't get him out! I got back just in time to get ready and make my way to the Furber's for Robyn's Matric dance pre-party. I was doing the pictures for the evening. It was such a cool party! really enjoyed it! The girls all looked stunning!

After the girls had all left, Bex came to get me from Rob's and we made our way to the willowvale! City bowl mizers, Pretty Blue Guns and Primative Anarchiests were playing. Freaking rad show! In between sets, we sat around various tables playing with toy dinosaurs which attracked so many people, lol.

The Willowvale is like no other place I've ever encountered. During the last band, I was quite tired and decided to occupy a bench in the back corner of the room, next to a very sullen looking woman. Try this some time, just sit and watch people at a gig one day. After a few minutes, a very intoxicated individual wheeled in on a very old bicycle and straight into the depths of the crowd. Moments later, said individual was crowd surfing...still riding the bike! Soon everyone was taking a turn riding the bike. As I'm having a good giggle to myself, a bunch of people burst through the door into the room where the band is playing and all collapse onto the floor...and stay there. They're all covered in multiple colours of paint, no idea why. Soon after, a little white poodle comes up to me, stares at me, and walks away. The gig ends and we leave the room, only to be pushed onto the sides of the walkway to make way for a party of people escorting (more like throwing out) some dudes who were fighting at the bar. They continue to fight, in the middle of Umbilo road. They manage to stumble into the very dodgy road across the way and disappear. This concluded a very successful evening at the Vale!

Sunday, we got Nintendo Wii!! Too stoked! And that was my weekend. Amped for next weekend:

  • Pay day
  • Gig at UKZN
  • Sleep

I think I Just Froze

I decided to add that photo to my entry for today as I like to look at it and think I'm warm. Haha! But I'm not.

Today has been the coldest day I've experienced in a long while, here in Durban and all I have to say is, what a lovely change!!!! Seriously, it was so cool to see proper coats and jackets, scarves and gloves, but the slight film of fog on the soccer field was a bit too much for me.

My brother recently joined the Virginia United Football Club. I guess I chose the wrong evening to go watch them practise, lol. The little kids are too funny to watch though.

I also went to coffee with Sarah, Jerri and Bec Haupt, this morning at Ce La Vi (or however you spell it, I don't know these strange European languages).

For now, I'm off to sleep. Looking forward to a lovely weekend with my friends. Now to locate as many blankets as possible and snuggle into bed!

Getting Back On Track

I haven't really done much with this blog, at all, so I am getting back on track and will try to remember it exists. The fact that I forgot that I have this blog worries me. I cannot even begin to try estimate the amount of internet accounts I own, so I guess I have littered the internet with bits and pieces of my thoughts that I will never remember, nor find. hehe!!

Lately, life has had a few ups and downs. Mostly I can testify to the fact that growing up can really be quite tedious, emotional and tiring. At the Moment I am in flux, or maybe everyone else is, either way, all I know is change is here. I'm learning a lot about myself and my friends, but mainly my friends. I'm learning who my friends are, who I can depend on, and who I can trust.

I'm learning to not get involved with every little happening in people's lives. I do feel quite secluded because of this, but like I said, I'm learning. I am also trying to be not so affected by what people say and do, this is the hardest for me as it boggles my mind how people can be oblivious to the consequences of their actions. I've lost contact with some, although I may see them often enough, I don't know them. I see less of some people, and it doesn't really bother me, but there are a few I miss dearly.

In Short, My Goals:

  • Smile
  • Take more photos
  • Go to more gigs
  • Try to stay in touch with friends (even the ones I see all the time)
  • Getting my mother ucking license

Now I leave you with this link
