note to self: when the flavouring on the noodle package says "flaming chicken", it probably means it's hot!
would my mouth please stop burning?!

I have to leave for rehearsal in about 10 minutes. there's only 9 days until the opening of "Bugsy Malone", so it's getting exciting, but in that nervous "the show will never be ready on time!" way. With 50 kids in the show and weather above 30C lately, tempers have been running short and rehearsals haven't been going overly well. But I have this confidence that it's all going to pull together. Put the kids in costumes, give them their custard pies to throw at each other onstage (hmmmm), and set the stage lights on them, and they're going to be in their element. I hope.

I spent Friday night at Rebecca's place, listening and watching musical tapes. Dorky, definitely, but one of the things I love the most about being up here in Queensland is making friends who have the same quirky interests as I, giving us something to bond over that I never really did before. And when yr singing together to some old kareoke cd admist the laughter of her housemates, you can't help but smile at the simplicity of it all.

Pat tried to get me to go to a rave with him last night, but due to lack of funds (+ energy + time + will, really), I didn't. "You wouldn't need drugs!" he announced. "You are a drug! We'll give you some glitter, and you'd just love it!"

And I laugh. And everything feels light again.

hi. you dont know me.. i was looking for online phychology journals and for some reason your site came up... i hope you dont mind but i read back just a little and its weird because i feel like i know you...
i moved from my family and friends to follow my career dreams a few years ago so i do understand and although it might be different for you, i thought i would explain to you the way i looked at it all because it might help... you seem like you are a bit lost but if you dont want my advice thats fine, maybe i am being a bit presumptuous...
i found, and i get the impression you have too, that my head told i best where i could follow my dreams, but my heart wanted me to run home to everything that was familiar. i found that by looking for the positives, my head was reassured and everything was ok until i was left alone to my thoughts and they wandered and my heart ached... i found that until my heart was ready for me to leave everyone behind that i cared for, i wasnt achieving anything being away from them because i lost all motivation and instead focusing on my dreams, i was counting down the days until i got to see everyone again....
it seems to me like you are very similar in that you arent really ready to let adelaide not be home...
