home sweet home

SO I'M BACK. Melbourne was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. The Tim Burton exhibition was INSANE. I got to see not only the costumes and sets from all of his movies (including the Mad Hatter's hat from Alice in Wonderland), but I also had the chance to see his personal drawings/letters/doodles/paintings/sculptures/essays/stories from when he was my age! Definitely worth flying to Melbourne for. The AFL was so so fun (as usual), and Mary Poppins was MAGICAL (the best thing I've seen at the theatre, even beat Spring Awakening :0). The shopping was as good as everyone says. I bought SO MUCH, including odd items such as a Che Guevara top and a panda head hat/beanie thing. If you are going to Melbourne make as much use of the Tourist Shuttle Bus (it's red), and go to the Queen Victoria Markets. So.Good. I also checked out the University of Melbourne's open day and was fairly impressed! I took SO MANY
photos; I'll post them on here by the end of the week.

In case you haven't noticed, I've been kind of lazy with the whole '30 day challenge' blog thing. I'm going to stop for now as I have better things to talk about in my opinion. I'll continue if life gets boring....and for once in my life have nothing to say...or maybe I'll pick out the good questions and answer one once a week....decisions, decisions.
