Things I gone and done

WOW. Three words: what a week. This past week has been non-stop, and no-one can understand right now how beautiful it feels just to be sitting on my ass in bed with my laptop doing absolutely nothing and not being expected anywhere for the entire day. Pure bliss.

Here are some of the things I got up to over the past week:
1. I've been selected as an editor of an amazing new Australia-wide business journal called Inside Enterprise that is run and written by students. It's going to be amazing and I cannot wait to see it grow into something incredible! I'm the Online Content Director, meaning I'll be essentially editing the articles going on the website and making sure that everything runs smoothly, and occasionally writing a thing or two. SO EXCITED! I've always been interested in the editing side of journalism so this is an absolutely fantastic opportunity.
2. Running on a ticket for the SRC elections. More on that later!
3. Went to my boyfriend's university/faculty ball/formal sort of thing. It was at Luna Park-the most SPECTACULAR venue! We were in the function room right next to the ferris wheel and the Harbour Bridge, which resulted in way too many cute couple shots in front of that insane backdrop. I cannot remember the last time I got to dress up for something like this so I could barely contain my excitement-went for a long coral-coloured maxi dress and got my hair done into waves (it was so insanely beautiful not having dead-straight/lifeless hair!). The company was brilliant, food was so tasty, and the whole night was spectacular! Began babysitting the next morning though at 6.30am which was the challenge of the century, having gone to bed in the early hours of the morning.
4. Went to my university's law revue, hilariously titled Love Contractually (Get it?? GET ITTT???). I went along because a couple of my friends were in it and I was BLOWN AWAY. Some of the skits were so funny that I was literally crying of laughter. Not as in merely watery eyes-I had tears streaming down my face. I could list all of my favourite skits but we don't want this blog post to be as long as Ulysses.

So there you have it folks. These are some things that I got up to amongst working and interning and half-heartedly attempting to stay on top of my uni work. Hope you all are having a fantastic weekend!
