I know, I know. It’s been a while. In blogging terms, it’s like I’ve taken some kind of undeserved long service leave. You’d be forgiven for thinking I’d thrown in the towel and chucked it all in for pen and paper. As melodramatic as that sounds, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
You see this curious cat has been feeding her imagination and expanding her knowledge as a postgraduate student having just started back at University after years in the workforce. And it hasn’t been easy. Libraries, lectures and lecterns – the mind boggles! And all in the name of Education. The things we do to stay ahead in the game. In fact, I’ve already discovered that old habits die hard – once a last minute crammer, always a last minute crammer. As for citations and bibliographies, I must have somehow missed out on these first time round. What do these words even mean? Sounds like a foreign language to me and I’m not fluent in essay speak. Ah well, I’m sure I’ll find out before too long.
As for right now, I’ve rediscovered the blissful art of procrastination. It’s a beautiful thing. It starts with a window and ends with a dream. This is the view from mine. Pretty special isn’t it. No wonder it’s been hard to concentrate!
What’s the view like from yours?
Being a new blogger, yours was the first I discovered on Freshly Pressed, and yes, I have wondered what has happened to you. Now we know. No bumps in the road, just an educational detour! I love your view. Ironically, I just posted my favorite view today… half a world apart.
WOW – and what a view you have too! I dream of having a veranda overlooking a beautiful garden like yours (alas Sydney’s rental prices are through the roof so I’ll have to dream a little longer!) Just checked out your blog – it’s great! To be honest, I still consider myself a novice blogger too. I’m still learning. Sometimes I’m stuck for inspiration, other times it flows like a river 🙂 Keep it up!
Thank you for your kind words and joining me on my porch (veranda). Here’s to new beginnings, inspiration, and post graduate studies.
Oh!! My gosh – spectacular. Well worth the wait. Best of luck to you with those citations and bibliographies. You s’pose they’d accept footnotes with your photos instead? A++++
Ha! I think practice will make perfect. I WISH they’d take photos over footnotes – it’d make it a hell of a lot easier!
That is one glorious view you’ve got there. My neighbor’s rooftop across the street does not glow as much, unfortunately. 🙂
Goodluck with your post-graduate studies!
Thanks! I know, this sunset was amazing. I didn’t touch up the photos either – this is seriously how orange it was. Doesn’t happen every day 🙂
Hearing you’re back at uni made me think back to our days at Newcastle uni (my last name was keogh then) – last minute cramming was def the order of the day! What are you studying this time? Glad to read your blog again – reading your travel adventures made me want to write again and got me off my arse to start my own. Look forward to your new “adventures”!
Hi Michelle! Thanks for reading 🙂 I’ve got a couple of upcoming posts up my sleeve, so keep an eye out. So glad to see that you started your own blog. It’s such a great creative outlet – both for writing and photography. Plus you get to meet all these amazing like-minded people around the world! Starting Uni again has been good – as nerdy as this sounds, it’s great to be learning new things again (spoken like a true mature age student hahaha!) Oh we had some good times at Newy didn’t we. Ah the memories 🙂 x
Stunning photos and cheers to new beginnings!
Thanks! New beginnings are always good, they keep things interesting 🙂
One of your past photos inspired me recently to try to capture the same light in a painting. Today’s photos are so luscious and saturated I can only look at them and wish it was the view from my window! Keep them coming.
Loved the colors. And would be very happy if you could take a look at my blog: http://travelingtobrazil.wordpress.com
What a beautiful view
What a stunning sky. Where is it? Beautiful pictures!
