Thoughts of August

Hello readers!

Haven't blogged in a while. Even though I arrived back in Melbourne exactly two weeks ago, I haven't got around to updating my blog.

Anyway the weather is pretty dreadful lately, have been raining heaps. I couldn't remember that last time we had a winter as wet as this year's. But even though it's cold, wet and windy, there is one good thing: Melbourne's water storage is up slightly this year. I still miss sunny days...can't wait until Spring!

This semester I am doing four subjects: Food Microbiology and Safety, Comparative Animal Physiology, Ecology and Human-Animal Interactions for breadth. These are all prac subjects, which means a pretty packed timetable. This reminds me, I still have to write a 1500 word essay for breadth, so I really shouldn't be blogging. Heehee!

In the spirit of philanthropy, I have signed up for several volunteering events, both at uni and in the community. This month I shall be promoting a student-run financial aid charity for students, called Student Appeal, which starts next week. I've also signed up for Daffodil Day, which is on the 27th of this month.

I am also going mad trying desperately to look for a new job. I think I've spent more time writing resumes and cover letters than on my homework, haha.

Last weekend I went to see Toy Story 3 in 3D with my sister and a very good friend. It was amazing, the last ten years have been so worth the wait! The storyline was superb, the voice acting was brilliant, and all the new characters are very memorable. If you haven't already, go and see it...NOW!

But I am pretty happy with the way things are going right now. However I do miss riding quite a lot. Hopefully the weather will clear up soon!
