I’ve had an amazingly spectacular week….Just when I thought things were kind of going down hill, things seemed to get better. For starters I got invited to join The International Golden Key Honour Society, because I am in the top 15 per cent, I was able to finish assignments and my computer is now fixed! Yay! Snaps for my friend who fixed it for me.
Song of the Superheroes is finished. FINISHED!
I wrote the last chapter today Chapter 59! It ends weird but again it started out weird too. There is even an epilogue. The finished product is now 131,591 words. I had sudden creative energy one uni was finished on Saturday and Sunday I wrote both Chapter 57 and Chapter 58. Since then I have written 8, 470 words. I can’t believe it’s finished. It feels so weird. Now all I have to do is go over it again and begin draft two. I’ll let you know of any particular changes.
My next project is the second in my series called Fizzy Lemonade with the same characters but a different story altogether. It will still touch on the same themes that Song of the Superheroes did. The power of the media and such…It will have a new hero though.
It seems like all good things are coming to an end. Uni, my Australian adventure, and now my entire novel, but I don’t necessarily see it as a bad thing, but merely a transition to my next adventure, which hopefully sees me staying in Australia, but if I go home that’s OK too.
You see I’ve been thinking about visas. Yes I have considered it very seriously like and I have four options to think about.
Plan A: Go back home, my grandparents did offer to help.
Plan B: Go back home visit my family and save up and come back on a Working Holiday Visa or for a Permanent Residency visa, most likely that later.
Plan C: Figure out a way to stay longer by applying for another bachelors degree or applying for a new student visa so I can study post graduate studies, yes I need a new visa to study post grad.
Plan D: Find an employer to sponsor me on a working visa so I can stay.
So far I like Plan B: and Plan D: the best. Plan C is tempting but it’s expensive to study in Australia and I do like uni, but I think I should take a few years break from it. Plan A just makes me sad, so if I can’t figure out how to go with Plan D I’ll go with Plan B: I hope this makes sense. So far I asked the local meatworks if they sponsored workers from overseas. They got mad at me and said no. I am going to try the Morning Bulletin next. I just hope I am back her in December so when Amy comes back from Canberra we can stalk Officer Octogenarian. Ha ha just kidding.
That reminds me. I told my grandma in a round about way that I wanted to stay in Australia because I met a guy and I don’t want it to be a what if situation. My grandparents accepted that answer out of all the other reasoning’s I gave them. Staying for a friends engagement party or just because I am happier here isn’t good enough. They must really want me to find an entire boyfriend, get married and contribute to the worlds overpopulation by having lots of babies. I seem to have this weird fixation with rejecting the other two ideas that come after boyfriend. I DON’T wanted to get married yet and DON’T want to have kids yet either.
I was also thinking about things recently regarding further travels to other countries. Another country I’d like to visit is Brazil, but I’d want to go as with an aid organisation that helps the people there, rather than see the actually tourist type stuff. I want to see what is actually happening behind all the glitz and glamour. So ladies and gentlemen in a few years time Brazil is my next adventure. This is Plan E.
Recently it was my birthday and I am now 23. Joan threw a dinner party masquerading as my birthday party, which was actually Joan’s dinner party. Joan even blew out half of my birthday candles on the cake. How strange is that? It was a fun party and it was awful nice of Joan to host such an occasion and the pictures taken were also quite amusing. Afterwards, Joan, Ana, Amy and I went out to the clubs. Joan and Ana left early, but Amy and I ended up staying till 4 a.m. It was awesome fun. I never saw Officer Octogenarian though…he is usually around the clubbing scene…hmmmm….maybe I should get a new crush.
P.S. Next year I’ll be 24
