Day two in Sydney!! LOTS of things here!! FOOD! SCENERY! BEER CAN SHIPS! ME! PARROT! HOORAH!

So I have to write this quickly because I nearly have to go to work, but I woke up at the hotel with Michelley this morning, and we got up and ready and packed a bag and got going out to Circular Quay, where we looked at the Opera House properly, and checked out the Rocks for a bit, looking for a wallet for me, before we got going round to Darling Harbour, which was gorgeous! 

We walked all right round, and booked tickets for Guardians of the Galaxy at the IMAX theatre (that’s super massive by the way). We walked round to the Maritime Museum, and checked out all the nautical stuff that the museum had to offer, before we got going to a restaurant, Little Snail, a french restaurant!

The dinner was INCREDIBLE! It was SO delicious! I had snails, and lamb, and sticky date pudding, where Michelle had boulibasse (I think that’s not how you spell it), beef tenderloin and then sticky date pudding as well!

We then walked down to the Imax theatre, hung out for a wee bit before we got going into the theatre!

Guardians of the Galaxy again was awesome, and seeing it on the BIGGEST IMAX THEATRE WAS INCREDIBLE. AHHHHHHHHHH JUST SO AWESOME!!!!!

Anyway, afterwards, we walked all the way back to our hotel (which wasn’t too far) and then we snuggled down into bed, for a nice good sleep!

SYDNEY! So this was my 21st present from my parents, which was VERY nice of them! These photos were taken on the plane looking over the Southern Alps of NZ, and then a fountain in the middle of town in Sydney, it was a GORGEOUS day! AND then shots of the night and the city!!

SO, we woke up at 4am, and got ready, and checked in for our flight at 5am! The plane took off at 7am, and we got there at 8am Aussie time!

So we went to our hotel, and dropped off bags before going for a massive walk, looking through some shops, going to this fountain and park, and checking out the sights of Sydney! We picked up some groceries and went back to the hotel, checking in properly before having some fun and a nap!

THEN, about 5pmish, we went out, and got some dinner at Chinatown in a food court (pad thai, super delicious!) and then we went down to Circular Quay and checked out the opera house and the harbour bridge, before walking to the observatory!

The observatory was awesome, it was raining, but there were some awesome films, and a planetarium (which both Michelle and I ADORED). Afterwards, we caught the train back to the hotel, and collapsed to bed! And that was our day!

A little adventurin’ with Ciaran round an abandoned hall which we hope to film at at some point… would be totally wicked if we can!

So today has been good, woke up at Michelle’s, and she wasn’t feeling the best, and went off to work - I went round to Ciaran’s, and we went out to Ella’s and filmed her talking about our short film, and afterwards we checked out this place, before I took Ciaran home and picked Michelle up early from work, because she was quite sick - I dropped her home and she went to sleep, and I went and did some editing with Ash, and sorted stuff and went home for dinner before going round back to Chelle’s - I had fish and chips for dinner, I think. If I remember right, well, a burger and chips.

Then, I packed and went round to Michelle’s, and we spent some time together, bought some pizza for her, and then we went off to bed, ready to go to Sydney together!!!!

Saturday was busssyyyyyyy!

I woke up with Michelle, and we picked up her sister and went for a big walk up to the hills, and had a wonderful time, and came back afterwards and relaxed for a bit, before Michelle and I had a wee nap and got ready to go out to Ash’s birthday party! WHICH was a lot of fun, talked with all my friends, had a good dance and a good laugh, although by around 2am, I was getting pretty tired, and Michelle wasn’t feeling the best, so we got going home about 2.30am, getting home and in bed by 3am! And yeah, we went off to sleep and that was our day!

Me and Michelle’s visit to the botanical gardens today - my GOD everything was so gorgeous! And one of the buildings damaged from the earthquake is open again!! WITH ALL OF THE BEAUTIFUL PLANTS!! Hence why a lot of the photos are taken in it…

So today has been great, I woke up about 10am with Michelle, a biiiig sleep in it was wonderful! And we got up, had some avocado on toast and cucumber on toast for breakfast, and we got ready and went out to the botanical gardens for a BIG walk around today! It was absolutely wonderful! We took all these photos and saw lots of little kids being adorable and cute (makes us want kids of our own! … one day, not today though) and it was really lovely! Although we did find some random Christian papers deliberately scattered around that were really narrow minded and offensive… so we destroyed them, and kept on our walk before heading home for lunch!

Once we got home, Michelle and I had some macaroni and roastie toasties for lunch (super delicious) and we ate the funky choc top I made last night - forgot to mention, the cone was half filled completely with melted chocolate…. soooooo it was yum.

Afterwards, we snuggled, and talked and had a wee bit of fun before I got going round to Ash’s by 3pm! Ash was late, so I hung out in her lounge and edited up some footage until she got there about 4ish - and we organised a bunch of the footage and sorted it out until about 5pm!

THEN, I got going back home for dinner, and edited up a genderfluid video (makeup kinda transformation thingy) which I’m putting out on Sunday! After that, I pottered around briefly on the internet, before uploading these, having a shower, and now I’m back, finishing these off and editing up the Gelita video just a little more before I pack my bag and go round to Michelle’s for the night! So it has been a rather wonderful day, if I say so myself!

Stuff that was in my pockets… apart from the penis pasta, that was already there - and the scissors. And the glasses, they were on my face… ok, so the tape and the watch was in my pocket, but look at the penis pasta! From Matthew and Mikala to Michelle, which is hilarious and awesome!
Anyway, so my day has been quite nice! I woke up with my Michelley, and we got up and got dressed QUIIIITE early, and went off to uni, getting there by 8.15, as Chelle had an exam this morning! So while she did that, I went and did a bit of editing work, and sorted some stuff out, and then met up with Michelle after her class, and we spent some time in the History building, having some lunch, looking stuff up and snuggling!
At 1pm, I went off to class, a tutorial for Creative Writing which BASICALLY just gave us the questions AND answers for the coming test which is at the start of next term! SO HOORAY! 
After class, I went with Ash and we started sorting through some stuff for the Gelita video we’re working on, before I got going! I said goodbye to Michelley, and went off to work! 
I rolled ice creams all night, and made a funky choctop that didn’t have chocolate on the top, it was vanilla ice cream that had flicks of chocolate all over the top of it, it looked really cool! But anyway, after work, I went home to Michelle’s, and had a bite to eat, watched Mrs Brown’s Boys with the family, and we went to bed, had some fun, and then went to sleep! And yeah, it was a very nice day!

A GORGEOUS walk up in the hills this morning! The clouds were rolling everywhere, it was absolutely gorgeous!

So I woke up at Michelle’s early this morning, and we got going together up to the port hills for a morning walk, which was tiring, but absolutely beautiful! We walked around some of the rim of the hills, before heading back down and having a bite to eat before going to uni!

Once we got to uni, I did a bit of study and editing and such while Michelle got her study on and class on! It was about 4ish though that I had to say goodbye to her, and got going off to work!

Work was long, I dipped ice creams and cleaned and served a lot of customers, and then finished at 10pm, picked up some clean clothes, got some petrol and went home to Chelley, where we fell asleep together! And yeah, that was our night!

The steering wheel. Yup, I was playing with focus again… because that’s what I do, HOORAY!
So today has been nice - I woke up at Michelle’s, and we got going off to uni again somewhat early, after a quick walk again around the suburbs! So I went to my class, and Michelle to hers.
Ash and I went to our radio show afterwards, which went well, and then back to uni - where I had some lunch with Michelley! We then hung out for a bit before she got back to the study and I got going home for dinner!
Then, after dinner, I played Xbox for a wee bit before going off to quiz night, where Michelle couldn’t come tonight because she had to do a stock take, but we still came second tonight! Which was surprising!
Afterwards, I went round to Michelle’s, and she got home shortly after me, and we snuggled and cuddled and it was a really nice night!

THE FOREST! WITH PRETTY LIGHT RAYS!
So I woke up with Michelle this morning, and we went for a walk along the forest before we got going off to university! We went to class together, and then afterwards had some lunch, and she did a lot of study and I just pottered around, did a bit of work and such and came home for dinner!
Then about 8ish, I went round to Michelle’s, and we hung out there for the night! And yeah!

So this is me, Ash, Scott and Max going up to the Port Hills again this afternoon! Was super awesome!

So I woke up at Michelle’s this morning, and then got up and went round to Ciaran’s,  to which we went out round to our cameraman Matthias’ house, and showed him the film - which he enjoyed! We then went back to his, I dropped him home and went home and did some editing. 

About 2pm, Ash picked me up, and we went and picked up Max and Scott and went up to the hills, to which we took these spectacular views! Got some awesome footage too! THEN, we went back home, and Ash dropped me home. 

I had dinner with the family, and did dishes and then went round to Michelle’s and picked her up, and then came home for the night with her! And yeah! It was really lovely!
