Hope Packages

This is something that I've just started doing. So far I've only left one package, but I plan to continue.
Find out more here: www.lifelittlelife.blogspot.com. I'd appreciate some feedback.

Take care.

I've not done the whole 'posting to lj' thing for quite a while. I don't really know why, though I check the site almost everyday.

Things have been up and down - same old same old I suppose. I've been working alot at Dimmeys over the break though now it is over. I go back to uni tomorrow... well go to Toowoomba tomorrow, uni doesn't start for a week yet which gives me time to settle into the unit and purchase textbooks and the like. I really should be packing right now... packing clothes. I have other assorted crap in boxes, I really don't know how it is going to fit into my little bubble of a car.

So I haven't written much lately and I'm kind of worried. I mean, this is supposed to be what I want to do as a career and it's been, what... 4 months? I don't know, I think it might just be that I need space, I can't work here, at this desk that is covered with the laptop. I also need to be rid of the threat of others (ie. parentals and sibling) reading my crap... not to mention I need space so that they aren't interrupting me all the time and asking me what I'm doing.

Ever heard of Gotye? I discovered his music last night. I recomment his single, 'Heart's a Mess' - I'm into the trippy spacey music at the moment. Speaking of which, check out 'Darkest Dreaming' by David Sylvian, it is amazing and so elevating... takes you to a higher level... I can't think of the right word right now... but just listen to it and you'll understand.

Hmm I don't really know who this 'you' is that I type of... anyways...

I'm looking forward to the whole sharing a unit thing. I just hope that I don't fall apart and leave Soph and Sun to witness my mess.

Gah... the etsy site is down.

Oh and USQ totally screwed my subject timetabling. I checked the timetable a week ago, and all was good - Monday was full as hell but there's nothing you can do so you deal with it, anyways, double checked last night and they've changed the freaking timetable!!!! Bastards! So now, two classes run at the same time and I've been forced to pull out of one and study it externally. I just hope I have enough motivation to keep up with the course...

Anyway. I'm a going to go. Maybe I'll drop by again sometime... and update like there's no tomorrow... not that anyone gives a damn.

Laters...

Christmas Eve 2006

Better Days - Goo Goo Dolls


And you ask me what I want this year
And I try to make this kind and clear
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days
Cuz I don't need boxes wrapped in strings
And desire and love and empty things
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again

And it's someplace simple where we could live
And something only you can give
And thats faith and trust and peace while we're alive
And the one poor child that saved this world
And there's 10 million more who probably could
If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again

I wish everyone was loved tonight
And somehow stop this endless fight
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again

'Only Hide' - Something for Kate

So I keep watch, you keep breaking.
Break information to become someone else
And your eyes become corridors
Where I wander with a candle calling out to you
And you only hide because you know I'll find you
You say you just want to feel,
The way you used to feel,
The way you should feel
And I wander, I wander through
The last city of you
And you only hide because you know I'll find you.
And you only hide because you know I'll find you






I don't know where I am. I don't know how I am. I just know that I liked the feeling too much. I found myself whispering aloud, "Beautiful, it's beautiful."

agh..

The mental health prac is coming up for the nursing students at the university I attend – they have to spend two weeks working in a mental health department of a hospital. I have quite a few mates who are studying nursing, all of whom are dreading the upcoming practical experience.
Maybe I am just biased, or it’s my own experience and interest in mental health that is helping to form the build up of aggravation and disgust… but for whatever reason it clearly shows that the stigma attached to mental illness is still alive and kicking.
The student nurses don’t want to work in mental health because they will be surrounded by ‘crazies’, ‘loons’, ‘aggressive’ ‘psycho’s according to my friends, these descriptions come with actions – crossed eyes, tongues sticking out and stupid grunts.
“Why do you think they are institutionalised – because they have to be kept away from public for safety,’ commented one of my friends.
Wrong.
People may be institutionalised for suicide attempts or behaviour, been admitted by concerned family or friends, and even self-admitted. Patients may be admitted for observation, to work out medication dosages, or to keep them safe.

Above all these people are intrinsically human – they are real people, with feelings, values… with stories and life experience. Perhaps they are more human than the rest of us. At least they feel, they experience the emotions and react to the horrors of this world. We live in a society who continually tries to hide emotions, to hide what it is that makes us ‘us’. We live in a society that laughs at innocence and relies on lies and corruption.

I pose the question: who are the sane people?
