If you're clicking here for the first time, WELCOME! Every Friday we celebrate the fact that - ding, ding! - it's Friday, and our favourite things (deliciously warm Spring days? Masking tape?! Okay, it's probably not the latter...) from the week that was. Here's what I'm currently loving!
x Kayaking - Alright, so I'm probably one of the few adults (wow, did I just call myself an adult?! Weird! The idea of being grown up seems so... FOREIGN!) who hasn't been kayaking before, but I went last Friday for the first time and I-l-loved it! (And here I was wailing ''I'm going to capsize! I'll be shark bait! They can probably smell me already!'' for hours beforehand. How silly! I didn't and it was GREAT!)
Hi, I'm not in the water! (Cele-brate good times, COME ON!)
x Signing Up For Pole Dancing (Ahem!) & Belly Dancing Classes - As dramatic as it might sound, the older I get (I'm turning 24 next week!), the more determined I become to experience everything that life has to offer. I don't want to leave this earth wondering what ANYTHING is like, so in what will be the ultimate test of my co-ordination (have I mentioned that I possess the grace of a baby elephant? I do!) I've signed up for pole dancing and belly dancing classes. Terrifying!
x Attending Revlon's 'Top Speed' Fashion Show - On a scale of 1-10, how much of a pretentious clown would I look like if I was to LIVE BLOG from a fashion show?! (Yes, live blog! As in sitting there with my laptop, typing away, while the models strut back and forth!) I estimate about a 10, but I guess I'll know for certain soon, because that's exactly what I've been invited to do this afternoon! (Cross your fingers that I don't make too much of a ninny of myself!)
x Other Little Things - Having Dani introduce me to the massively talented Gisela Ramirez, only for Gisela to say ''I know... I've seen her blog!'' (me: ''OHMYGODYOUHAAAAAAAAAAAVE?!''); Puddle Of Mudd's Spin You Around (JEEZ I love this song!); Revlon's 'Top Speed' nail enamel (not a product placement. This baby literally dries in sixty seconds!); Kathryn's fantastic advice of ''don't add lame shit to the world'' (hear, freaking hear!); and finally... I LEFT MY PART-TIME JOB AT THE TRAVEL AGENCY YESTERDAY! I'm COMPLETELY terrified (will I be destitute within a week?! What if nobody hires me again? Oh, well. Interesting reading material, here we come!), but... sometimes you have to throw yourself off a ledge to create your own safety net, don't you? Okay, that was a terrible analogy (please don't throw yourself off any ledges!), but life is similar to a magnificent swimming pool. If we don't occasionally attempt a few scary leaps and dives, where's the fun?!
x Arrange to meet a friend or someone that you'd like to get to know better (because isn't it a brilliant time to make the transition from wondering what someone's like to discovering what they're like? YES!) for a Midnight date. The idea? You visit a beach, park or 24 hour bar or restaurant at Midnight and just... talk! Learn about eachother! Visit a typically highly-populated area after hours and revel in the fact that there's almost nobody else there! (Would anyone in Sydney like to go on a Midnight date?)
x Share a personal project or goal (your website portfolio? Your hip-hop career?!) with someone unexpected. It can be a little nervewracking, but I guarantee that the feedback will always be interesting!
Happy Friday! How was YOUR week?
