So That’s Where All My Money Is Going

I’m still here … literally stuck between pieces of cardboard and balsa, and thankfully no essays to kill my already stressed mind. With the end of the semester so near, I’m fearing:

  • Final design proposals.
  • Finding a “serious” job.
  • Graduation.
  • The future.

Our faculty has decided to conveniently phase out our 5 ½ years of Bach. of Architecture into 3 years of Bach. of Architectural Studies and 2 years of Masters of Architecture. You’d think it make our lives simpler, but no. I’m confused and freaked out at the prospect that I might just be graduating next year.

To combat that fear/reality has been some news of very-promising tours heading our way.

The Architecture in Helsinki remixers are here for a brief stop over.

Now for something completely different – letters from my drafts.

Dear Karen,

Thank you for informing me about finding the perfect shoulder bag. I feel very touched that it was addressed to me too. I’m sure to find you at the next gig and see this marvelous bag you speak of.

Much love,

Dear Handsome Tours,

Please announce a Sydney sideshow for the Go! Team. I am too poor to buy tickets to all these festivals they are appearing at and it would make my day/summer if they played just one small show in Sydney.


Dear Feist,

I patiently wait for your lovely presence here in the course of 2008.

Much love,

Dear Ro’s Facebook friends,

I don’t want to be a f**king pirate, zombie or vampire. Requests of this kind will be rejected immediately.

Love always,

Dear Motivation,

Where have you gone?

    I hate it when universities decide to change things in the middle of your degree. Sydney Uni did it as well by standardising unit of study credit points which meant I had to do more subjects.

    I’m with you on annoying requests on Facebook.

    I want Bjork tickets but I’m also intrigued as to who will be playing at the festival bar at Hyde Park Barracks.

  2. RO said:

    Yeah I will probably have to do a few subjects during the break because of it. 😦

    Who ever is playing the spiegeltent and the barracks will surely not disappoint. Seriously, the Sydney Festival is probably one the best festivals around.

  3. Karen said:

    Ro, I’m sure my bag and I will bump into you at a gig in the not too distant future.

    I am super excited about the Sydney Festival announcement this year, because I can feel it in my bones that there is going to be something AMAZING. I had that feeling before Meredith this year as well though. So perhaps my bones can’t be trusted.

    P.S. I am now part of the Facebook machine too. And I find it mildly disturbing, too. I haven’t been asked to be a vampire yet though?!?!
