Not around much - Suffering From Elation
A Survivor's Tale
Not around much
Just a quick note to say that I don't have regular internet access at the moment, so I won't be as active online as I have been. All good though, I'm getting heaps done! My first two courses have started. As I suspected they don't compromise nearly enough work to keep me as busy as I'd like, but it's early days.

The first few days of this week were (predictably) rough - being put through the wringer at Centerlink, discovering my work overpaid me by $500 and that I had to repay that back, screwing my budget, missing a freelance opportunity because I was out of the loop up at mum's for a week - but it's all good now. This week has been an adjustment period.

And here is the good: cooking dinner every night (Joe and I co-made delicious pizza the last couple of nights, OMG SO GOOD I'm never having takeout pizza again), the writing classes I eventually chose are EXCELLENT, Centerlink looks like it's going to work out, I get free internets at my local jobsearch agency and they're so cool here they don't mind me doing stuff like updating this journal (which is why I won't be entirely absent, cheers guys!), and I have spent a lot of time writing and a lot of time in the sun. Also, my home office is totally boss.

So yeah, I live. And now I must head out... to adventure! And by adventure I mean coffee.

"Comprise." Just so you know. ^__^

Can you add another course to have more to do, or is it too late for that? (For some reason your post brought back memories of high school Latin classes and how utterly bored I got waiting for the other 30 people in the room to "get it".)

The guys at the jobsearch places are usually pretty awesome, especially in contrast to Centrelink, whose job, it seems, is to make the process of getting money out of them so long and involved and fatiguing that most people who are trying to juggle actual job hunting + other activities will give up in disgust long before they see a cent...
