"head up straight, I know what I'm doing"


My last one was this afternoon and I am confident I nailed it. But right now I am so happy to be free! This semester has been tough; I honestly felt at times I wasn't going to make it through. But I have! &now I have some free time, and a summer to enjoy, with only one subject to focus on. It will be so nice to come home from work each night and not have to study all the time. I've forgotten what it's like to not have to work all the time.

Noel is away in Sydney at the moment; I got up at 4:30am to take him to the airport because I am the most awesome fiancee ever, haha. Not having him here to celebrate the end of the semester is the only thing wrong at the moment [well, that &the fact I am so tired I can barely stay awake, at 7pm!] I feel very happy & peaceful, with Obama's win and all the beautiful photos at obama_daily, and finally being able to relax. I feel like such a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

Other fabulous things right now:
♥ I am addicted to downloading mixes from communities like fanmix, mixshare & singitdj; music addict!
♥ the huge pile of books I have to read, including both of Obama's books, and finally having time to read them!
♥ the equally huge pile of magazines to read, including the latest issue of my favourite magazine, Lula, which only comes out twice a year [there are some scans of some of the photoshoots here, here, and one of my favourites here]
♥ having time to start Christmas shopping!
♥ I am going to send packages & letters & things soon, I swear. I have a baby package for moonborn from JUNE, wtf. I suck at being a friend when I'm stressed :[
♥ hopefully I will be able to catch up with some friends now too, if they remember who I am :-\
♥ I am going to start doing some wedding planning too, at least :]

I am getting such a clear idea of where I want my career to go, and I have just a year left of my masters to complete now. 5 subjects. I need to work out things like whether I will do the CA or CPA after this, which are the professional qualifying bodies for Accounting in Australia [&another 3 years of study & mentoring & professional practice], but I am feeling very positive about it all, about where I want to head and how I can get there.

The future feels very bright and full of promise; but right now, the present is pretty good too.
