Living the high life

31 Mar

Ooh swanky post! Haha.
Okay I should probably admit no, I don’t live the high life lol. But it feels nice to be able to say that!
I am totally shocking with money. I’ve got two credit cards which are maxed and an overdraft big enough to afford a reasonable second hand car. But this is only because I spent $2000 in Australia (which I think is fair enough considering it was my first overseas holiday EVER and the exchange rate was shit) and Glyn and I have been making a few home improvements and buying study resources:
1) A new study desk (old one was braking fast)
2) TiVo (analog is going soon and it was $100 off)
3) A new iMac because the last one died, along with my laptop
4) A iPad 2 (for study and because it was like $300 off)
5) Lots of textbooks for journalism (Around $500)
6) A professional digital camera for journalism (Around $300)
7) A voice recorder for journalism ($150)
8) Extended warranties ($100)
9) Apple accessories + camera SD card ($160)
10) Lamp ($40)

Probably didn’t need the last two, but that’s okay. Lol. Anyway now the TiVo areal isn’t working and the new lamp is getting in the way of life and petrol is quite expensive. Grr. But we’re not flagging at the moment, we are boarding so that’s made life easier for us both.

Ooh and another thing I love- Moccas are only 50c at the Taranaki Daily News!! I have one every day I am there lol, so good!

I’ve published two stories so far and I am really happy about it. Wrote a third on Friday for Saturdays paper but they didn’t publish it because I think it was more of a Midweek story, which means it’ll be published next Wednesday in the free community paper. That is still good! I hope I publish it before James hehe, just because then I’ll be ahead of the class in terms of publishing stories heh heh heh šŸ˜‰

Anyway that’s all I needed to rave and rant about for tonight. I am going to sleep now, wish me luck. :p
