Despite the things in my life that aren’t so crash hot at the moment (being sick, recovering from illness, my father still living at home, being unemployed and seriously broke), there are things that I’m seriously looking forward to.
On Thursday, Mum and I headed to Sydney overnight, to stay in my sister’s apartment. I love going to Sydney, especially with my Mum. We always have an awesome time. I love messing around with Instagram whilst in Sydney – I always get the best shots, plus the Kinokuniya bookshop is basically my happy place. I’m really looking forward to it.
Mum’s got a hair appointment (one of her friends owns a salon in the city), so I get to roam about the CBD, having a look around. Honestly, I’ll definitely be hitting up Apple (I want to replace my now-defunct Toshiba laptop with a Macbook Pro in a few months), the aforementioned Kinokuniya and winding my way through the new Westfield Centrepoint, to find interesting shops. I can’t wait!
The other thing I am so looking forward to is new furniture! It was a rather round about decision – I found a slightly-cheaper iPad 3 on sale, and we went in and put ourselves on the wait-list. But when I went home, I was super freaked out about spending eight hundred plus dollars on something that I really, really wanted but really didn’t need. I mean, there are so many things I absolutely need – a new laptop, a new Wacom stylus, new bedroom furniture… So Mum and I decided to take my name off the wait list and spend money elsewhere.
On bedroom furniture! On the weekend, I picked out a wardrobe and chest of drawers I utterly love, and brought how measurements to make sure that they fit into my little bedroom. Except, when Mum was helping me flip my mattress, we discovered that not only is my mattress dead, so is my bed. So I get to pick out a brand new double bed (I got my last bed when I was roughly 15/16 and I never bothered considering a double bed since my room is so small, but Mum thinks that I can absolutely get a double bed. So exciting!)
I’ll most likely get the bed and mattress first, and lay-buy the wardrobe and chest of drawers. It’s just so exciting! We’ve never really had proper furniture in our house – I didn’t get my first desk until I was 17 – because my father is weird.
And, since Mum got the name of a reliable painter, hopefully the bedrooms will be painted this year
