Creepy Dream

Sometimes I get really disturbed by dreams. Even though I know they aren't real, I'm left with an emotional sentiment from them that gets to me. Last night I had a dream that I was on a boat from Tassie to Melbourne (with a lot of my Melbourne friends) and something happened (I can't remember specifically what), and the boat sunk. I almost died and it was terrifying, but I did survive. But two of my friends died. It was just horrible! I spent the second half of the dream crying. And 2 of my other friends just didn't seem to really care that 2 of our friends had died. It was so distubing and it really creeped me out.


That's a word right?

I had fun last night.

I've lost 4 kg in the last week and a half.

I have one episode of 'Angel' left to watch. WHOO!!!

I love daylight savings!

I'm going to go and play the piano now.

Packed Weekend

EDIT; Oh, and I forgot that I have another birthday party this afternoon (Saturday) that I forgot about. Great. TOO MUCH STUFF!!! And I got to bed at 3am...Zzzzz...

I think I'm going to have a rather busy weekend this weekend. I'm taking my friend Krissy out to buy a mobile this arvo, she's a bit phone illiterate you see, and needs someone with her so she doesn't make a stupid decision like last time. Then I'm going to Kelly's 23rd birthday party tonight. Tomorrow morning I'm going to the St Andrews markets with Beth, then catching up with Pete (my friend from Tassie who's over visiting for the weekend) in the afternoon. And at night I have Alex's 21st (even though his birthday was 6 months ago). Then on Sunday morning I'm singing a song with Rachel at church. Perhaps I have Sunday afternoon off. I sure hope so coz I have lots of study stuff to get done. Then I'm back at church Sunday night and I usually don't get home til about 11pm after catching up with everyone afterwards. It'll be fun though. Oh, and on Monday, I'm going to the Ben Lee/Missy Higgins concert!!! I can't wait!!! What are you guys doing this weekend?

I wish I had a guy that would warn me when I was going to do something stupid before I did it. He could sing to me to warn me "MISTAKE!!!" And he'd be an opera singer. Just like JD has in Scrubs.


I love walking. I went for such a nice walk yesterday in our local park! Isn't it purdy?

*breaks into song*

Happy Birthday To You!
Happy Birthday To You!
Happy Birthday Dear Troy!
Happy Birthday To You!

And I don't even have a photo of him to stick up! Troy, why did you have to do something as silly as move to Sydney? Hope you have a wonderful day!

I'd also like to share my high levels of excitement over losing 3kg in the last week! WHOO!!! It's amazing what a bit of walking and a lot of water will do for you!

And Nooni has done another wonderful photo of me! She's amazing!

My amazing, wonderful brother bought me a dvd last night for no apparent reason. One of my favourite movies of all time, which I have just finished watching too late at night, Love Actually. I don't know what draws me to it so much, probably the seemingly unobtainable goal of finding love. I want romance. I just wrote a song about unrequited love, and it's something I seem to experience too much. I want love. I want to find someone who will love me and make me feel really special. I have never found that, and I long for it. Sigh...

Naomi (Nooni) & I went out for lunch today, and Nooni being the wonderfully creative girl that she is, decided to do some condiment art. Here is her attempt at writing our names. Notice how my name is now Mogoo, and her's is now Nooni.

And here are some great photos of us from the day!

The gig tonight went well. Ingi & I enjoyed ourselves anyway. I don't think it was our best performance, but we still had a good time. It was great getting to play our original songs! There was this Tongan family who sang, and damn were they amazing! There were 9 kids who sang, but they had 17 kids in the family! WHOA! Islanders can really sing!

I'm so tired. Must get some spleep. Love to you all!

Tomorrow Night!

Well TONIGHT is our next gig! Here are the details:

Friday 21st October
$5 Entry Fee
7 - 11pm
Rosanna Uniting Church Hall
21-23 Arden Cresent

We'll be on stage at about 8:15pm and we'll play 4 or 5 songs that we wrote! How exciting!

It'd be awesome to see some of you there! We really appreciate all you guys who support us!

Conflicting Emotions

Well, isn't it nice to know that people have been lying to me? I was going to leave this for a couple of weeks, and reveal that I knew later, but I can't be bothered. For the most part I think it's pretty damn funny. Very clever and well done. I was fooled completely. But on the other hand I feel a tad humilated knowing that people have been laughing at me behind my back.

Still confused?

EDIT: Just making it clear that I'm not mad at anyone. I get cranky when I'm sleepy, and I haven't had enough sleep. No harm done. It's all good.

Bridget Jones

I love Bridget Jones! The movie that is. I'm a huge fan of both movies (which I own), and am very much in love with Colin Firth. I want me a lovely man like him... *sigh* And sadly I think I over identify with Bridget Jones... but I don't think I'm quite as socially awkward. Well, I hope not anyway. I watched the second movie on Sunday night again. I also love 'love actually'. I tried to buy it yesterday as an ex rental, but they'd run out of copies. Anyone who'd like to buy it for me, please feel free.

In The Zone!

Ingi came over today and we spent about 4 hours jamming. Homework isn't important right? Good, I didn't think so. Anyway, we wrote a song together! The first real song we've written together. We've written one other song, but it was more us each writing bits separately and then putting it together. This was us actually co-writing. It worked suprisingly well! We thought it'd be so hard, but we bounced off each other so well! We're going to perform it at our gig on Friday. I'd love for people to come! Here are the details. Please come and see us! Anyway, just wanted to share my excitement over music!

Saturday, October 15, 2005

I was talking with 2 of my wonderful friends tonight and it got me thinking about direction. I mean directive behaviour, when people tell you how things are going to be. It makes me so angry when people think they have the right to run anyone else's life for them. I was in a position last year where that was done for me a lot of the time. The problem is that it was done with such good intentions. People just wanted to see me cared for, but I was not cared for, I was controlled. I lost my sense of independance, and with it some of my sense of identity. How can you enjoy life, when someone else is living it for you? I spent a lot of time feeling depressed because I lost myself. I felt squashed. I felt unimportant and irrelevant. I felt untrusted, like people thought I was incapable of making good decisions without their help. How arrogant! I was being squeezed into being the person that someone else thought I should be. Even if I wanted to make those same choices, I wanted to be the one making them. How can I take ownership of my life when I have no room to make my own decisions? It is such a disempowering experience to have choices made for you, or to be coerced into making the choices that another wants you to make. I want to be empowered to be all that I can be.

All I want to do at the moment is write music, but I'm not finding the time. I have a lot of study to do and other committments. Stupid responsibilities. I could quite happily be a full time muso. Sure I'd be poor, but you know, it'd be all good. I'm so inspired at the moment. And I'm really enjoying the Missy Higgins DVD I bought a couple of weeks ago. Lots of inspiration from her. And Ingi & I are going to see Missy, Ben Lee and others in concert in a couple of weeks! YAY!!! And we have a gig coming up next week! WHOO!!! We'll be doing all originals! Come see us! Music is such an all consuming thing for me. I go through various spurts, and right now is a rather intense one of only wanting to play and sing and forsake everything else. But I am trying to keep a healthy balance. Trying.

Amazingly Hilaious!

Honestly, there are some danm hilarious shows on the abc! I saw 'spicks and specks' for the first time tonight. I didn't know what the show was, but it was sooooooooo funny!!! I laughed so much!!! It's like a game show version of 'the glass house' which is one of my favourite shows. I watched that tonight too by the way too. I just love that show, always makes me laugh. It goes up and down a bit, but usually a cack! I also watched 'black books' tonight! Love it! British comedy is great! Please tell me any hilarious shows that I'm missing out on!

I love my puppy Maggie. She's taken to sleeping on my bed over the last couple of months or so. I swear she thinks it's her bed/room and I'm just allowed to sleep there too.

Cheeky Puppy!

Thankfully it's over! I've now done my talk at church, so I have one less thing to be stressed about. I'm generally not a stressy kind of person (Well I'm not entirely sure that's true, I'm not sure I always recognise when I'm stressed), but anyway, I have been a bit stressed over this. But as per usual it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I actually felt rather comfortable up there talking, but the preparation bit freaked me out good and proper, but in the end it did go rather well. I was happy with it anyway. It wasn't great, but it was good. I think God really used it to speak to people too which is awesome! And it's kind of the point really! I'm glad God was able to take my feeble words and do something with them. I've got some positive feedback which is good, and some of the things I said seemed to have helped people, and that was the point. I didn't do the talk for me!

Take Advantage!

I live in Melbourne, the world's second most livable city apparently. Which I would happen to agree with. Well, I think we're THE most livable city. We have been the last few years, but this year Vancouver beat us out. Grrr (Not Austin Powers Grrr)! Anyway, we have such a vast range of things to do, and I don't take advantage of it at all. I went to see Kathryn in a play last night and it was really good! Yay Kathryn! I love seeing plays and live music, but I don't get out there enough. There are always a thousand things to do in this city. I need to be more adventurous and go to places I don't usually go to, to see what's out there. I tend to go to the places I know, and while they are good, I think I'm missing out on a lot of awesome stuff. Everytime (ok, not EVERYtime, most times) I go somewhere new I find it's really interesting. Like when I went to see Mal Webb, he was amazing! I really want to go and see 'the merchants of bollywood'. It's a new production that starts in a couple of weeks. I just love the culture of Melbourne, but I don't get into it enough. GO MELBOURNE!!!

I'm supposed to be preaching at church tomorrow night and I STILL don't know what to say!!! Heeeeeeeelp!!!

Oh, and this site is HILARIOUS!!!

Do I Have Sleep Apnoea?

I feel sooo tired a lot of the time, even when I get lots of sleep. I slept for 12 hours last night and I woke up feeling utterly exhausted. It was phyiscally difficult to keep my eyes open and to get up. My friend Alison was telling me tonight that I might have sleep apnoea. I googled it and did an online test I found, and it told me I might have it. Hmmm... perhaps I should see a doctor. I am tired quite a lot of the time, but I guess it almost feels normal. I can still function and concetrate when I need to, but I am never refreshed in the mornings when I wake up, and I gather that's what sleep is meant to do for you. I just figured I wasn't a morning person, but I wonder if there is more to it. It doesn't seem to matter how much sleep I get, I'm still tired when I wake up. I rarely feel really energised. Sometimes I do, but it's not very often at all.

I have to get some sleep. I'm exhausted. Hard to keep my eyes open. Literally.

What To Do...

Now I'm confused as to what course I should be studying. I'm currently doing a Bachelor of Arts in Ministry. But I might want to swap to a Bachelor of Counselling. I'm so confused! My college (Kingsley) is being restructured next year, as we're merging with the Sydney College of Divinity. There are new course being offered, subjects are being renamed and the whole sturcure of things is changing a bit. I was thinking of perhaps still doing a Bachelor of Arts in Ministry and doing a grad dip in Counselling afterwards.

I don't know what to do!!!

I just had a makeover with some girlfriends of mine! Yay for Rachel & Olivia! We had so much fun! A Mary Kay woman came over to their place and we all look pretty now! But we've got nowhere to go... to bed for me! I feel like going out now damnit!

I had a history exam this morning. Silly me didn't study for it. Oops. First test I have failed to study for in this course. But I did look through my notes 5 minutes before the exam, managed to remember almost everything I read, then got a distinction. WHOO!!! GO ME!!!

This is an email I got today from Ratty. So funny!

Well my friends Biz & Kris are engaged! How very exciting! The big event happened on Sunday. I'm so happy for them! They've been together for about a year now, and liked each other since they first met, which was almost a year before that. How very exciting! Congrats guys!

I'm so happy for them, but slightly sad that I'm still single...

Ok, I'm freaking out. I've been asked to preach (I used that word just because I know how much revhead loves it!) on Sunday night!!! AAAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!! The lovely Brent and I have been asked to both do an 8ish minute talk. I'm rather freaked out. I've never done this before... I want to do it, but then again I'm scared I'll suck at it.

Such A Good Day

I had such a good day yesterday. You know how sometimes you just finish the day and then you think "Gee that was a good day.". Well yesterday was one of those days for me. I had lunch with my friend Rachel, then we just chatted for a couple of hours. Then we headed down to Warrendyte and went shopping in funky shops. Then we got gelati and went down to the river and dangled our feet in whie we ate our very melted gelati. Then we headed over to my place and did some music stuff. I just had a good day.

Bought the Missy Higgins dvd that came out today! WHOO!!!

Back to college tomorrow. Looking forward to it, but mourning the end of the holidays.

I've discovered the joys of podcasting! I've downloaded lots of triple m shebang stuff. Best show on radio! I love it! Do you know of any good things I can download as far as podcasting is concerned? I'm just loving it!

Quote For The day

I can't wait to figure out what's wrong with me, so I can say this is the way I used to be.

Gimme A Hug!

I think hugs are so underrated. I love a good hug. A real bear hug. It just makes me feel so good! I don't get enough really good hugs. I think we'd all be a bit happier if we got a really good hug every now and then. I think a hug says something that words can't.
