That's it. That's me finished at Monash. And frankly I'm really sad about it. This has been the best six months ever, great friends, the funniest of times and in a week I go home to my parents house to sleep on a couch for 5 whole weeks until I begin my jetsetting journey over into the big wide world.
I don't want to sleep on a couch. I don't want to go home. Actually, I'm probably going to be much more focused on writing there than I am here. At the moment, I'm making the most of my last week with my fantabulous mates, well, the ones who are HERE. You know who you are, missing people. Grr.
I'm still a...gasp....pedestrian until next week because the part they ordered for fixing my car was on back order. Then it arrived! But then they sent it back. They needed something for the left side of the car and were sent something for the right side of the car. I mean I'm not THAT fussy, but...
I am still an obsessive email checker at the moment as I have two literary agents - not one, but TWO - interested in my writing so we'll see how that pans out. Fingers crossed whilst in America I'll toddle in for a visit with "my agent" hehe. I feel very cool saying that. It's all just one step closer, ya know?
I don't really have much else to say at the moment.
Oh, my father who writes articles for the local paper has been having a tantrum of late, because I wrote an article for it recently and not only did it take up half a page with a whopping great photo (of drunken people but they don't look drunken) but a huge byline in about size 18 font. They totally like me better. :)
I had the interview I did with comedian Mark Watson published in Lots Wife as well, and I also had an article about the whole Monash Abroad (studying overseas) application process (and just how hard and time consuming it is) and that was published in the same edition. The only thing is that the theme for the edition? Sodomy. The picture on the contents page has a naked Barbie bent forward at the waist with Ken (also naked) standing behind her, arm up to slap her bottom. Aside from my two rather clean articles, that's about the cleanest thing in there. Yes people, I was published in a porn mag. I'm ever so proud.
My housemates were reading the articles "Anonymous sex stories" and their expressions became more and more horrified the further they read. I'm afraid to look.
Anyhoo, I'm clearly not pigeonholing myself to one writing nor one publication type, am I?
That's everything I got for the moment peoples.
Oh! My UK Visa has all been approved and is wonderful. Surprisingly, the pleading letter worked and they're letting me in before the normal student visa and letting me out after it. So yay! All is going according to plan. Now to book lots of fantabulous trips! Paris and Italy DEFINETLY. I really wanna see Pompeii. I'm hoping to do the Greek Islands and Egypt as well. After that it all depends, whether I can do Africa. On weekends I'm totally heading to Scotland, Wales, Ireland, I understand it's about 10 pounds to hop a plane to Amsterdam. Drool. The possibilities are endless.
Okay, NOW that's all.
I'll keep ya posted!
