A lot of you have probably heard of what happened today in Melbourne. About the guy who drove right through a crowded sidewalk in the middle of Melbourne City.

Luckily, I work in Richmond, and was asked to close. Luckily, Emma didn't decide to go to the city earlier than she did (she arrived right after the incident). I had errands to run on that exact place, and if I hadn't been working I might have been there.

I found out from a customer at work, and I'm just happy that Emma hadn't told me she was going there, cause I would've suffered heartfailure.

Now we're both safe and sound and as far as I know, I dont know anyone who was there. And I'm so grateful that my life can continue on as usual.

But I think of those who lost someone today, those who got hurt today. Those who are having the worst day of their lives. And I feel super weird about working in a nightclub tonight.

Decided to go out and read in the sun for a while when I got home from work. I obvioualy ended up sitting there for hours because I can never stop reading if it's a good book. Which it was!

But. Apparently I managed to get the worst sunburn ever!!! And I even used sunscreen I promise!!! So annoying I hate getting a sunburn. And I always use sunscreen when I'm out in the sun! It's not fair.

Well. At least I got some colour! Hahahahahahahaha haha.. ha... *crying*

Edit: I'm way more red than I look in the pic. I'm currently showering in aloe vera spray.

Lazy day! After yesterdays funfunfun I was really tired, so after getting off work I just went home and had a nap. But not before I did some second hand shopping! Ive been spending loads of money the last couple of days, but I'll get paid twice on Friday so I don't feel too bad about it. Plus I'm happy with what I've spent it on!

For dinner me and Emma made an amazing vegetarian bolognese, so happy I'm back to cooking again! I'm trying to only cook vegetarian when I'm home and so far so good. It helps me to try and come up with new dishes/ be more creative in the kitchen, and it's usually way healthier than what I cook otherwise as well! When I'm out and about I still eat anything though.

Since moving to Australia I've met so many vegetarians/vegans and I've realised it's not that big of a difference, or sacrifice, as I thought before. Seeing how animals were being treated in Asia also made quite a big impact on me.

While doing farmwork me and Emma also ate mostly vegetarian because of our super tight budget (we could get away with less than 20$/week each!) and that was probably some of the best food I've ever cooked. Vegetarian tacos with homemade tortillas was just perfect after picking tomatoes and while watching Family Feud!! Needless to say, our life at the farm wasn't very exciting most of the time.

No I'm sitting in the couch outside, about to drink some tea and watch TV shows on my phone. Really wish I had a computer days like this!

Spontaneously bought tickets to Alexisonfire this morning. Turned out to be an ok Tuesday!

Tomorrow I have to get up at 6am again. I could be more excited!

I'M  SO EXCITED

We didnt think we had a chance at all to get tickets to this show, not for a reasonable price anyway. But we were proved wrong! Found tickets second hand for even cheaper than the original price and now I'm super stoked! Me and Emma both love BMTH and they were pretty awesome last time we saw them, so I couldn't be happier right now!

Also, I've been crushing on Oli (like everyone else) ever since I saw the video to It Never Ends. Those puppy eyes and heartbreaking lyrics are just an unbeatable combo!

Hey all, I know I have been absent for a while and it is with a very heavy heart that I have to say that Patrick and I have broken up. As all of you surely can understand, I'm going through a rough time at the moment so please don't be too annoyed if deep, dark and tear-filled post starts appearing.. :)

Jokes aside, we've had one amazing and crazy year together and I'm extremely grateful for all of that time. I have learned so much about myself and life in general and I'm looking forward to keep on working on myself. I have so many adventures ahead and I am so much stronger than I think.

Got myself a new earbuddy a few days ago! And I love it!

I love earpiercings in general and I don't know why I haven't gotten more earlier. But it's never too late! This one didn't even hurt that bad - not like the last one that made me wanna cry.

Pic from this weekend, which actually wasnt too bad! I had an errand in the city on Saturday so we decided to go for dinner and a drink at abc afterwards, where we met a bunch of friends as well! They were all going to rats so Emma joined them, and I had to spend all night behind the bar while they were buying drinks from me and having the time of their lives (or at least a very fun night).

All of this just made me tired and annoyed because it was super busy and I just wanted to sign off. I gave every customer the evil eye. I didnt recieve a single tip that night and I didn't deserve one either!

When I finally signed off they had left, but I stayed and had a chat with my workmates and to be honest, that wasn't too bad.

Sunday was spent sleeping, cleaning and just doing Sunday-y stuff. How amazing is it that I can sleep until 1pm and still go to bed at 10pm?! As well as being able to pull allnighters and staying up for 24h sometimes?

Todays dinner! Happy I had some good food before work cause it wasn't a good night. We had an Italian techno party on and there was like no people at all! So quiet. And the music was really bad as well. The three first hours felt like at least the double.

I can't wait to go to sleep, it's been a very long day. And week! Tomorrow is rats day and I need all the energy I can get.

Update: this tram is the slowest I've ever ever been on. I don't know what the driver is doing he's going slower than I could walk. And now he waited for the light to turn red? What's up I just wanna get home

Me and my new roommate! He's pretty skinny so you can't really see him, but he's there!

In other news, Emma's finally back from Tassie! We're gonna go for dinner in the city before I start working. A colleague at the café was shocked to hear that I start working at 10pm. She doesn't speak english very well and first thought that I finished at 10. Hahah. Dream.
