I'm Back......

I have finally finished studying!! It is a relief and exciting! I am definately ready for a break and some r&r. Today I had a huge compliment resulting from my studies. One of my lecturers, and colleague, popped her heada into my teaching room this morning. She had obviously spoken to my head lecturer who had said to her "Ozcyberminx should be a Head of Department". WOW!!! I wonder if it was before or after he read my final exam........

Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye...

No I am not planning on hurting myself, or am I embarking on a long holiday. I probably won't be blogging for a long while as I have begun uni again and the work load is ghastly!! The reading list for one lecture for week one is one page long let alone the other units!!! So dear readers you must carry on your lives without my words of wisdom for the next nine months. I will be back but until then, its goodbye from him, and its goodbye from him.

So exactly when do you call it quits and throw in the towel?!?!?! Have I no suffered enough?!?!? I had my first day at uni today. It was all going well until, I went to the music department and found out that I had a lecture this afternoon that they "forgot" to tell me about!!!!! I had dance teaching this afternoon!!!!! In a nutshell, the lecturer's response was "well you have to be there" and "why hasn't the ed dept sorted this out?" It is not the ed dept's fault!!! Look a little closer to home. Anyway, I got out of today's lecture, rang the dance principal in tears because I was stressed and sick and tired of mucking her around. She was great. But I do have a great deal of re-organising to do for next week!!!!! This component of the music unit wasn't showing up on any of the timetables so it came as a real shock when two of us approached the lecturer involved about a completely different topic and he said "I'll talk about it more this afternoon"?????? He is going to have a very quiet class!!! And he kept running away during the conversation but we kept chasing him!!!!

Universities! humpf!

In my last post, I whinged about the university changing my timetable around and causing me some grief. They have done it again!!! But this time they didn't bother to email me, I just happened to check the website. I have to rearrange things again! People are so not going to be happy and those who were all for me doing this are going to get annoyed that "I" am mucking them around. They do know that it is not me but that makes me unreliable anyway. Thank you uni!!!!!!

My toothpaste fell off the brush

I'm sure its happened to everyone. You put the toothpaste on your brush, look away, look back and its fallen off your brush into the sink. Great! Do you a)scrape it off the sink because it is a waste of perfectly good toothpaste. b) not trust the cleanliness of the sink and put fresh toothpaste on your brush wasting a glob by washing it down the drain. c) do neither and rinse with mouthwash because you just can't be bothered, you've already wasted time first thing in the morning.

So why blog about this? Its a perfect analogy for my life at the moment. You a re still scratching your head right? You think everything is going quite swimmingly and then bang! Something upsets the apple cart. In my case its planning my life for this year. I had it all planned out with uni and work and everything and then bang! Uni decides to change their timetable after I arranged work around it. So rude. So stressful!! My siblings would know that I was already under a "bit" of pressure already. So, do I rearrange my work again even though there is a chance that this timetable will change again. Do I leave it and hope it changes back. Or do I pack it all in because it is too hard??

What would you do with the toothpaste?

My new infatuation

When I have the time to indulge in this one who knows but it is fascinating! I am starting to dabble into my family tree. I never thought that I would ever be interested in it but once you start digging.... I know there is a lot of hype here in Australia at the moment about people's family trees but thats not what got me started. That is just coincidence. I am reading a fascinating book about one man's search for a branch of his family that died in Poland during the German occupation and how he is going about finding out what happened to them exactly. So I began creating a family tree on ancestry.com.au . At first you seem to find nothing that relates to your family and then when you dig a little further things start to look promising. The only problem is the important records like birth, death and marriage notices cost to look at. But eventually I will have to fork out but I just want to know that they are the right documents to look at. Anyway, I'll let you know if I find an axe murderer or something.
