Do I detect a pattern here?

what is wrong with me? Honestly? Every bloody semester I end up having to do some all-nighters and it absolutley kills me. I'm on the tail end of one now and my essay is almost done. I just won't learn or something!

Ah ha, my first proper reply....

Good olf federal member for Melbourne, Mr Tanner, is the first to send his
own reply, and It's here for you to see.
I'm still not sure what I plan on doing with all this. any ideas anyone?
I have got a few more automatically generated responces but I'm not going
to post these


Dear J*****

Yes I was involved in student politics. I gained enormously from this
expreience, particularly advocacy, negotiation and administration
skills. I edited the student newspaper Farago, which also ensured that
I developed a range of production and editing skills.

Yours sincerely

Lindsay Tanner MP
Federal Member for Melbourne

It begins....

Today I sent off the first in a string of emails to prominent politicians (both major parties) asking them whether or not they were involved in their student unions when they were at University and what they gained from the experience.

I will post their replies here.

This one came back from Tony Abbott. I'll give him another week to respond properly.

Kylie Cancers tour...

This is so wrong but I'm in such a dark place right now (not literally, the library at Clayton is fucken bright as) that I'm beyond all consideration. I'll probably delete this post if I finish these essays. IF!
I'm going to drink lots of tea today, for kylie.

Home coming

Evening, I've just got back home from a night out with a friend I've had since I was 3 years Old. He and I have literally thousands of stories to tell and our friendship is for me truly unique. I can read, understand, and at times predict his thoughts, as he can with me. Anyway, tonight he was Mc-ing at P.O with a DJ he and I used to see weekly for a while. It took me a while, Erica's inability to mix (tonight it was either a cold cut or a mix starting from the last 2 or so bars of a track) soon washed over me (to a degree at least) and with the admitted help of two beers and a g&t I danced my little feet off for an hour or so, my head filling with similar moments two and three years ago. I was a little pissed and this was nostalgia at its very best. I felt of raft of things, a welcome uplifting feeling which made me pause to consider the nuances of a 17 year long friendship. At one stage I became quite self-conscious and perhaps a little paranoid that a few people in P.O were taking the piss out of my dancing. It is I concede a common thought of mine. Not so much that people take the mickey, but an unsure awareness that I in fact can not dance at all. But bugger that! I have a serious amount of fun when I dance and tonight re-confirmed that for me. I'm going to a big drum and bass party next week and tonight's little boogie has primed me well.
I'm listening right now to my I-Pod. It's an album I've not yet listened to (Bright Eyes - Digital Ash in A digital Urn) and it is not too engaging really. Might usually have said more about this but tonight I'm hitting the hay. Night all.
