Taking a weeks vacation during the middle of a Uni course although good for my soul was probably not so good for my brain as it’s taken me a couple of days just to get into the swing of focusing on energy & electricity assignment questions again. How the fuck do I calculate magnetic force on a conductor again?
I never quite realised how much I get into the zone when I am studying compared to when I am not but it soon became obvious how much of a nerd I am when we were visiting Mr X’s parents and whilst he carried out some electrical work in their home I spent all day studying at their dining room table. It felt sooo good too, opening up my textbook and getting my brain to think and grapple with foreign concepts. I was really starting to think I’d forgotten everything I had previous learnt but the more I read, the more the information would come rushing back.
However it was really good to step away from Uni for a time, even if it was for a week, because whilst I was removed from the computer I visited my first DFO (discount factory outlet) and went a little nuts in the Converse store by purchasing two pairs of new shoes and five new t-shirts (what can I say I just love me some casual style clothing). And then we moved on to the Cotton On outlet and spent some more money there and then I dropped into Jeans West and picked up a sweet pair of pants.
One of the things I was actually hoping to pick up was some organic makeup from Zuii Organics (I purchased some samples of the liquid foundation, powder, lipstick as well as a set of brushes a little while ago and I really like it), however I just didn’t have the patience to seek out a stockist in the Brisbane area knowing I can order it online when I was at home.
Overall shopping for me was probably the highlight of the entire trip although we did drop into Movieworld and Dreamworld for a day each so Mr X could get his fun fix and we drove a zillion kilometres taking in the countryside along the way. The place we actually stayed at was quite a distance from the city, much further than I first imagined it was but that’s my own fault for not checking the distance through google maps.
However we had a great time staying there because we had a fire place to keep us warm at night and a fire pit out the back to roast our marshmallows on and a really nice view of the surrounding area since we were situated on top of a hill. But it’s nice to be home again and in my own bed and even knowing I’m off to work tomorrow.
