That’d Be About Right

Scrolling along, and this popped up on my tumblr.  Thought I may as well give it a go.

So here’s the first 25 songs that come up on my iPhone on shuffle (I thought 25 was a better representation rather than just 20):

  1. Wolfmother – In the Morning
  2. The Hives – You Got it All Wrong
  3. The Used – Liar Liar (Burn in Hell)
  4. My Chemical Romance – Cancer [Piano Tribute]
  5. Nine Inch Nails – All the Love in the World
  6. Rolling Stones – Get Off My Cloud
  7. The White Stripes – Passive Manipulation
  8. Peaches – Mommy Complex
  9. Lily Allen – Not Fair
  10. Swedish House Mafia – Until One (Continuous Mix)
  11. George Baker Selection – Little Green Bag
  12. Skold vs. KMFDM – All or Nothing
  13. Machine Head – Ten Fold
  14. The White Stripes – I’m Lonely (But I Ain’t That Lonely Yet)
  15. Florence & The Machine – Leave My Body
  16. Queens of the Stone Age – In My Head
  17. Machine Head – Battery
  18. Led Zeppelin – Nobody’s Fault But Mine
  19. Pixies – Here Comes Your Man
  20. Daft Punk – Crescendolls
  21. Pearl Jam – Once
  22. Beck – Readymade
  23. Queens of the Stone Age – Hangin’ Tree
  24. The Naked and Famous – Kill the Littleblackdots
  25. Slipknot – The Blister Exists

Can’t really complain about all of that.  Seems pretty fair.

Exciting News!!!

So much so that I’m writing another post even though the once scheduled for today has already been published!!

For those of you who don’t know, I left uni way back in July/August after having some anxiety/mania/very nearly running away issues.  The whole situation obviously wasn’t working.

So, since then I’ve just been pottering round, doing a bit of knitting, wool cross-stitch, and a recent foray into crochet.  There’s also been a reasonable amount of time on the ol’ Xbox 360.  Since we also got a dishwasher during this time, I’ve been able to stick to a routine of doing housework (much to J’s delight I’m sure).  Who’d thought having a dishwasher would have such a positive flow-on effect.

Anyway, this obviously wasn’t going to be enough to keep me entertained indefinitely.  I’ve known for a while that I want to be a librarian.  The plan had been to finish my degree, then go on to do the post-grad diploma required.  Since that was not going to happen now, I decided to look into changing my major to Humanities, Information and Library Studies.  This isn’t offered at the University of Canterbury.  So I applied to enrol at the Open Polytechnic of New Zealand, where I’ll be able to complete it via correspondence.  Because this degree is a double major, I won’t be able to cross-credit any of the papers I’ve already done (that’s just the way their system works), but because I already have experience in the humanities area, it means I can get around some of the pre-requisites that are required for certain papers, making it easier to plan what papers I’ll be doing when.  I could have done the single major, but I really wanted to include the humanities/social sciences side of things.  Of course, if J happens to get a job somewhere that isn’t in New Zealand/can’t be done from New Zealand, that’s going to make things a little tricky, but it’s just the way it is for now.  Shouldn’t be an issue in the immediate future.

And this is where I get to the exciting news bit (because that’s the reason you’re here after all).  I got confirmation today that my application has been accepted and I start on 11 November!  (I did get verbal confirmation on Wednesday, but now it’s official.)  Just the one paper at this stage, because that’s all which is on offer in the third trimester for Level 5, and getting back into it slowly is probably a good idea anyway.

It’s all very exciting stuff guys!!

Rain Drop

I’ve been lying awake in bed at night a lot lately, thinking about pretty much everything.  Last night, some of these thoughts came together in the form of the following poem:

———————————————————–

Falling

Falling

Eternity to the ground

Sitting

Waiting

Purpose all gone

Had it ever been?

Suddenly

Rising

Sun from behind cloud

Lifting

Drifting

Cycle starts again

What I Did Today

Today I cancelled my credit card, and celebrated with banana bread.

Continuing with the Dear Diary theme, I also bought some wool to knit this up.  The wool is Patons Stella and It feels so delicious.  I’m really looking forward to working with it.

Finally, I bought some buttons to finish off this cardigan:

Chalkhill Blue

(See the pattern here.  It is using Lincraft Sherbet, which I really don’t recommend.)

I really should share more of my knitting projects on here, then I’d at least to have some posts going out… I shall have another post with my latest projects out shortly.
