skool

Next step, apply for scholarships.

Thank you to all the people who congratulated me last night. I feel like a bit of a knob replying to a heap of comments with "Thank you!" over and over again, so instead I'll do it here. THANK YOU!

Of course, I made the mistake of reading the comments on this article about graduation this morning. Thank you, haters. And because I'm not about to wade into Stuff comments, I would just like to respond here to get this off my chest. To the person who wrote this comment:

""WHY IS MY GENERIC ARTS DEGREE WHICH I PASSED WITH A C AVERAGE NOT GETTING ME 1 MILLION A YEAR STRAIGHT OUT OF UNI JOHN KEY."
-Every whining student, 2013"


Please kiss my straight-A getting, top tax bracket (thanks to my Arts degree) arse. Thank you.

Last night I dreamed that I talked my way onto a plane that had been chartered to take gay couples to be married in Palmerston North, using only my driver's licence - only to discover that I was actually supposed to be getting in the car to go visit Tinkering Josh in the Hutt instead, and everyone had gone without me. Wut.

Also last night, at handbalancing I kept my handstand unassisted for about 30 seconds, and it felt solid. I also managed to tuck up into a free handstand for the first time ever. Beginner class was a good idea - there are no assumptions being made about what I already know, so I'm getting some good basic tutelage that I wish I'd had when I started doing this. Maybe by this Christmas I'll be able to press?
