Hi everyone! It feels a right age since I last typed in this little space on the internet, so I'm just popping in to say all my vitals are still good. As you've deduced from the photo I've just come back from a lo-va-ly holiday, a cruise actually. There was an online promotion-discount on one of those groupon/livingsocial sites and my mum signed us up a few months ago bless her. A 9 day cruise to New Caledonia and the Pacific Islands was a perfect sunny break from the frosty cold of winter Sydney. Missing a week and a half of school certainly doesn't hurt either.
For those of you who've never been on a cruise, it's like staying in a little secluded (in the best way possible) little village, but a hotel at the same time. The staff were so friendly and there was more amazing food than you could shake a stick at with the choice of a buffet or waterfront restaurant for every meal. Been pretty hard going back to ham and cheese sandwiches for lunch again. Although I was initially worried about being bored on a big 'ol ship with no free wifi, that was banished quickly after discovering the live entertainment provided every night; courtesy of the ship, and meeting some amazing fellow holiday-ers and also the pool. The pool was pretty ordinary in itself, but because it was on the top deck of a moving ship, it become a pretty-god-damn amazing natural wave pool. Wishing I was back there and not studying Macbeth..
