sick and tired of being sick and tired

it's not my year. i think i have had a cough at least 3 the last 3 and a bit's just getting a little ridiculas. i'm over not being able to breath or go to sleep easily because of the cough...i found a ventilin i had been perscribed for a cough i got last year and i thought i'd self perscribe it this time...the thing is it's best before september of this year...i got the shakes after using it the other night.

mum said i should probably slow down i think she is right...

house is sorted went and spoke to some people today and i will be moving into flat 7 in the very near furture with nikki. they (at the sem) were very happy to hear that we had figured it out...

at mum and dad's tonight it's good i think mcleod's daughters is on...i think i might go watch it with bek and courty.

4 minutes around about...

i got to speak to one of my very good mates this morning, we haven't spoken since the 10th august...i know this date because it's the date she left to go over seas! i got a call this morning around 9am adelaide time from the dresdan dolls gig in london when they were playing the jeep song! it was very exciting! about half an hour later i got another call and clare and i got to talk for about 4 minutes. it was great. before clare left and i lived here in adelaide and she in brisbane we talked once a week so it has been a strain not being able to talk with her for so long. not that we really said anything too profound in that 4 minutes it was nice to hear her voice and know that she had had a wicked time seeing the dresdan dolls...check them out if you haven't heard of them they are a two peice from boston. amanda on keys and vox and brian on drums... they are stella.

hopefully in the next week we can talk on the land line for more then 4 minutes

The course of events

This morning I had a really bad dream. It was concerning the events that are to take place in January and February. The Big Day Out. These events may not be as devastating to you are they were to me but it was bad at the time.

it started with the Big Day Out (BDO). I can't say whether it was the Adelaide or Gold Coast BDO because there were kids from school in it and so was jek (and she's in QLD). So I went to the show and had to leave for some reason...I have no idea why.

but then I found myself with a group of kids from school sneaking into a house. It was dark and then it was light and dark then light, so I was getting confused with the time and not really knowing what the time was I lost track of time.

all of a sudden I realise that crap if I don't hurry up I am going to miss TOOL...ok so I have waited the best part of say 10 years to see this band...Don't ask me why it's taken me this long to see them...Other events that are too traumatic to think about ...Maybe less traumatic then this event but I've started this story now so I have to finish it...

ANYWAY...I had to start making my way back to the place where the show was. And well that's when things were getting ugly. I was with this group of people and I was trying to catch the bus and so I went back to the mystery house...and then back to the bus stop...i am not sure why...and then I finally got a bus I had left my bag at the house. So I had to get off the bus and go back for the bag...trouble is I couldn't remember what the house was like because it had gone dark again.

after panicing and I mean going a little nuts I found someone and used their phone...I knew the person and she let me use it. BUT to send the message I had to print it out from her phone..that was connected to a mystery printer someonewhere. I was hoping to delete the message from her phone because the message was for my sister and well I had used some colourful language and I didn't want this girls mum reading the message I had written...I was still Lauren the youth worker in this dream.

so as soon as I clicked send my sister was at the door...teleported or something and we were on our way through a shopping centre. She of course bumped into people she knew who all wanted to speak to her, with which she replied "LOZ WILL kill me if we don't keep going" so we were running and running by this time it was 10.30 at night...but it was still light saving isn't that good...

I was startled out of the dream when my alarm went this morning...I don't know if I got to see tool or not...

5 years

it's 5 years since i finished high school. i got thinking about this because yesterday was the year 12's last day at Concordia. they had an assembly and they did a fantastic job, i laughed...A LOT!!! they had prepared skits of their time at concorida and there was a bit of fun and immitation of the teachers. Then last night we had a really nice dinner for them and had some speeches. there were a few teary eyed people and it was a lovely celebration. there was a lot of talk about change and that this is a time in the lives of the students who are leaving that they will experience a lot of change. i know this year has been a year of change and challenge for me...but i think i am stronger for it. but the last 4 years have been changing years too. i left home, moved from the town i was living in and went to uni and studied. made new friends, lost touch with others. it's interesting to look back and contemplate it.

mmm yes

on a less philosophical mate situation might be sorting itself out! which is very exciting!
