snippets of my life

19 October 2011 - Melbourne, Australia

My life is pretty uneventful. Once in a while random things will occur to make it remotely interesting, but generally speaking I have to find my joy in the mundane. The very mundane.

So, I go for a walk along a polluted creek, and admire the sight of a bird perched in the branches of one of the many dead trees.

Then I sit in a cafe and read the Ancient Christian mystics, taking copious notes and drinking a whole lot of coffee.

Then I play Sim City for a bit…

Sim City for iPhone

… and I don’t think I’ve ever played it without a cheat code…

Then I (cruelly, perhaps) Instagram-ed this photo of a bunch of roses. The original photo was taken on an iPhone 4S. (All right, I did NOT intend to write a whole post of iPhone references but, as mentioned earlier, my life isn’t too exciting.) The 4S isn’t mine, it belongs to someone else in the house, but I do like the photos that come off the phone.

Oh, look! Dandelions. Staring at them for half an hour will keep me mildly amused.

It was a hot day, and I was feeling frustrated by my distance from the beach. I grew up in an area close to the coast, and I desperately miss the beach. So, I took some pavement chalk and a pile of seashells and created a temporary beach on the garden path. It didn’t really help a whole lot.

Oh, and I also graduated from university with an honours degree in arts (sociology). In Australian terms, it’s a requirement to get into postgraduate research, such as a doctorate. I got H2A (Second Class Honours, Division A).
