I couldn’t find any ironed shirts this morning so I wore my Howards Storage World work shirt to the hospital today. Shhh.
I spent all day in antenatal clinic today palpating big pregnant bellies and doing ultrasounds of little baby hearts, and now I’m home learning about all the cool things I saw in hospital.
It’s a really great feeling when you’re genuinely excited about what you’re learning in school, and want to rush home to read a textbook.
I needed a bit of cheering up today. This did the trick.
Here are my votes for Triple’s J Hottest 100 for the past 20 years. The ones highlighted are some of my favourite songs and listening to them again has welled up a whole bunch of feels inside me, in a good way.
Since my studying has been incredibly pitiful in the last few weeks since starting uni, I have adopted this new method where I set an egg timer for 15-20 minutes and study without break, without internet and without my phone for that duration. And then when the egg timer goes off I allow myself a break. And then I set the egg timer again and repeat.
The constant ticking makes you feel like you’re racing against time so you work more efficiently too. It’s great!
i know that it is no secret that I am a green. But it is days like today where I am reminded why I joined The Greens, and why I work so hard everyday to grow the green movement.
Today Parliament passed legislation that declared the continent of Australia is no longer a part of Australia’s migration zone. This is a law designed to bypass our international obligation to refugees. This is a government that locks up children in detention centres even though they have committed no crime. They are fleeing for their lives and we treat them like criminals.
The Greens oppose this. The Greens will always oppose this and they always have. They are THE ONLY party in Parliament that does.
If you think that refugees deserve better than being locked up in island prisons with no timeframe for release, you should vote Green. Because the old parties think refugees deserve that.
And this video, this is Christine Milne explaining why the government and the opposition are not only not caring for Australia, but being economically irresponsible as well.
This is why I am Green. This is why I gave up on the old parties. This is why I fight, even when it feels like all hope is lost.
You know that catchy “dumb ways to die” song for metro thats on all the ads? Well the girl who wrote that, her dad is a paediatrician and he works at the Royal Childrens and he gave us a lecture in the hospital one day, and the first thing he did was pull out his guitar and start serenading the group to “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.” He the proceeded to explain to us how practicing paediatrics was the same as making music because it has to “come from the heart, not the head.”
Kid doctors, amirite?
“ I can’t think of any greater happiness than to be with you all the time, without interruption, endlessly, even though I feel that here in this world there’s no undisturbed place for our love, neither in the village nor anywhere else; and I dream of a grave, deep and narrow, where we could clasp each other in our arms as with clamps, and I would hide my face in you and you would hide your face in me, and nobody would ever see us any more. ”
If you take antibiotics for a little bit of tonsillitis or a little cold or a little viral upper respiratory tract infection (which is what it is 99.99999% of the time) you will be judged harder than a smoker putting nice big holes into their alveoli. You don’t need them. Stop wasting them. One day all of the bugs will have gained so much resistance against what little antibiotics we have left that our children will be dying of awful bacterial infections because we wasted antibiotics on a “sore throat.”
You wouldn’t think that it happens but it still astonishes me how many people are put on anti’s for tonsillitis. YOU DON’T NEED THEM.
My mum never let us have pet dogs growing up so it’s a good thing that my boyfriend has adorable doggies to satisfy my puppy cuddling cravings.
