Thankful Thursday

Julia Roberts' smile = how big I wish I could smile right now.
First off - I just wanted to say again that this year has been amazing. Sure, it's had it's down times, and I'm actually having more endometriosis pain than last year, but for every down, there has been just as big an up. To be honest, last year was hell. For the first time in my life, I thought it was never going to get any better. I'm so glad that I've come out the other end.

Feeling settled in Canberra

After 2 years and 3 months I finally am feeling more settled in Canberra. It's been a little bit of a roller coaster ride, but I finally feel like I've got a good circle of friends and I don't feel like I'm floundering anymore.

Gorgeous weather

*Caveat: after 2 years and 3 months in Canberra, a day with a high of 21 and a low of 5 is now warm to me.

Also, autumn leaves. My favourite season in Canberra, and one of the reasons I am loving it so much right now.

Stimulating work

Work has been really busy for the last few weeks - a bunch of projects that I'm working on are now all coming together and the hard slog beforehand is coming to fruition. There is still quite a lot to do, but it's nice to see the beginnings of solid outputs! I can say that I feel like the luckiest girl in the world with my job at the moment - I've been working late nights but I don't even feel like I'm working. My colleagues rock my socks as well.

Talented friends

As seen in this post, my friend Hash took me out for a photoshoot on Saturday. It was fun and silly and a definite confidence boost. How could it not be with the talent he has?

New hobbies

This week I have tried out Women's Self Defence Hapkido classes and I started up Ceroc dancing again after two years. I forgot how much I loved dancing, and I'm looking forward to doing it a lot more. It's also really good to know some self defence moves so that I feel safer when I'm walking around at night.
