Once Every Blue Moon

Yes, it's been a long long, LONG time since I've even looked at
blogger, let alone write anything.
But I thought I'd give it a little up date.

So I've now been single for nearly a year, and that itself has been rewarding yet frustrating. I managed to try & pull myself away from everyone for a while, but in the past few months I've had to let my guard down and relax a little.
Which for me basically means I've decided to act like a 20 year old - for once!
I'm young, happy & single, what else is there to do - Beside
s the odd male - out there?
Well for starters I'm planning on going to America next year, yesterday I woke up feeling like I wanted to pierce my nose (so I did).

I also have developed a crush (can you call it a crush if your sleeping together?) on one guy but I'm still madly in love with my Army guy. It's so frustrating being stuck here, especially if your Army guy is in Afghanistan fighting & the other guy you like just got out of a 2.5 year relationship & wants to just have fun (but has recently informed me that he likes me, he's over sleeping with different people (like me), he also told me that out of everyone he knows he can connet/talk to me the easiest, but he's not ready for anything so we're going to be just friends, which I'm ok with because I like just being around him I get this amazing/happy/confident energy around him).

Oh yeah, my 3 best friends are all over 1000 km away from me too, so making new friends are in order. Talking over the internet can only get you so far! (I love you girls if your reading this).

Ok, I guess that was my update for now.

I'm off to Confest! Wish me luck!

...Oh hey...

I never got to show you what my apartment looked like!
Oh golly! I miss that humble dwelling ever so much! Next year if I'm working enough I might move back in.
I never had much of a problem with my old house mate, and now Ryan & I have split, I can abuse my single rights!

Oh, the silliness of me!

Hello, my name's Elyse... and I have a terrible habit of letting down my guard when (seemingly) nice boys with nice smiles and lots of cuddles say they like me...

In fact, I write them books and letters and cook them breakfast, cakes and everything else that I thought (seemingly) nice boys liked.

But then they stop talking to you, and forget your phone number.
Even if you have liked one another for 5 years.

They look amazing in their glasses and Country Road attire.
They smell amazing in their Joop.
They make you feel amazing when they kiss you & tell you "your perfect, happy, beautiful".

Then they go back and hide behind their guns in the Army.
They go to Afghanistan.

I secretly hope they never forget.
But, I know they eventually will.

Oh, the silliness of me!

Another wonderful day...

It's been a while (again... I know, I'm fairly lazy).

Lovely to see how my whole 18 followers are doing. You seem to be rather wonderful...

So, life update; well, Ryan has now got a wonderful new girlfriend (it hurts, but I'm getting over it), I'm halfway through my course! It's gone so quickly! I've managed to stay in one of my jobs for more than 6 months :D
This yeah has had it's personal ups and downs, much like everybody else, you just pick up the pieces and keep on walking. There's really no time to stop and complain, the hours, days and weeks keep going, and naturally, you can't help but move forward with it.

cough cough

I cannot stop coughing, it's the most horrible feeling, like I'm unable to breath. My voice is now just a rough whisper and on my good days I'll sound like a man. Well, I'm glad I'm sick so I can appreciate the days when I'm healthy and well.

Mmm, traditional green tea infused with fragrant jasmine... not too weak yet not too strong.

My lovely bones...

Do know when you get that feeling? That horrible, lonely abandoned feeling where you're left feeling hollow and empty for a little while? Well I have that feeling, the best way I could possibly describe it is, like being an old, used hollow bone. The ones you find out in the bush somewhere. The type of bone you look at and think to yourself 'now, where is your home little one?'

I need to find where I belong.

Ahoy there!
Ah! I'm so excited! I got into my course! Conservation and Land Management, this will provide a stepping stone for me to get into Environmental Science! So I can save and protect the important things in life with my new found wealth of knowledge! Huzzah!

In other news, I'm learning to sew and I've finally sent off Karrens pretend birthday present... give it a few weeks Karren.

Valentines Day

Is it just me or does St. Valentine's Day seem forced to you? Don't get me wrong, it's a wonderful excuse to celebrate a new and/or happy relationships. But what about the 'it's... ok/mutual closeness because I'm used to being around you all the time' relationships, these are the forced relationships that cause me to take a second look at this Hallmark excuse of a romantic day.
All the people that are single are already having a horrible day, to them Valentines day is just another excuse to be really pissed off at everyone else (like my poor, stunningly gorgeous and ridiculously fussy ex-house mate) and the couples who feel the pressure of Valentines Day and feel they need to walk side-by-side, wasting money on roses (what do flowers even symbolise anyway, they only die a week later), saying "I love you darling" to then break up a week later just frustrates me (alas, I am one of those people).
Maybe I'm being too cynical and dark, maybe it is a wonderful celebration of romance.
Actually I've decided I'm being bitter and twisted, people can celebrate today and whatever other day they want, however they want. I'm happy to read my book for the rest of the day.

Happy Valentines Day everyone!

Good lord, has it really been 5 months?

Ok, So I've been avoiding my blogging site for a while, only because I don't want to sound like I'm complaining the whole time.

So, update time:
- I've moved home (much to my dislike).
- I've lost a close relative recently and reacted quite odd to the whole situation, as if I were, well not indifferent but as if it were a normal occurrence, even though it is... but not in my everyday life.
- My head's not quite right after another very private personal issue I've had to endure.
- I constantly smell like Chlorine because I work nearly every night in a swimming pool teaching little kids to swim.
- I cut my hair off, so now it's short (as you will see from the picture of my friend jade and I).
- My photobooth accidentally got deleted from my mac and I can no longer take quick paranoid pictures of my teeth before I run off to a meeting or work... frustrating!
- Since moving home I forget to take the bins out.
- I like water from a tap, not chilled water (it makes my teeth hurt).
- I got a new phone, but it's hard to use.

So there you have it! The wonderful life of Elyse, up till now...
Tune in the next 5 months to read more!
