Ten Days Straight

I was just recently glancing at my most current Itunes library, and it just so happens that I have 10 days, 5 hours, 10 minutes and 14 seconds worth of music on there. I think that makes me incredibly happy in one respect, but also kind of bummed out in another. At times it feels that, even if I played my library the whole way through, there just never is anything new and exciting to listen to. I don't know if anyone else gets that feeling, but I sure do. On the other hand, I could put my Ipod on shuffle and I could let it run for weeks on end potentially, because I certainly don't listen to music the whole 24 hours of the day.
And that isn't even including my Podcasts, with my 100+ episodes of Hamish and Andy, which I pretty much always listen to on the bus up to uni, it just makes the trip feel a lot shorter than it actually is. I think I'm going to look at this situation as being the cup which is half full.

So I went to the Easter Show yesterday, and it was a really nice day out, but to be honest, nothing has really changed. Even some of the food stalls are in EXACTLY the same places as they were even a couple of years ago. Regardless, it was a nice day out, and I was even able to get a couple of t-shirts while I was at it, and I did actually get a couple of show bags, but for the most part they just don't really seem to be economically feasible. And I managed to steer well clear from the ride that broke down the other day. In fact, my biggest venture would have probably been the ferris wheel, which is always a nice experience, you get the best views for miles.

All in all an awesome day, although it is always a little hard on the wallet to be honest, but that is pretty much to be expected.

PS. Just to highlight the underlying blog theme for the week are some fun things to do in Sydney, maybe things that even locals don't really think of doing.
The one for today is learning how to surf, which to me always sounds like a really fun thing to do. Everyone seems to be smiling and having a really good time when they are on the tv learning how to surf, plus it is a great and fun way to exercise for people who might not be motivated for just a run around the block. Lets Go Surfing really seem to know what they are talking about. Located in Bondi, they have reasonably priced lessons for all types of levels, and again, everyone seems to be having the time of their lives. Just a bit of food for thought...


  1. so.you went to the easter show. but you didnt tell us WHAT bags you got.
    i demand a response!!

    please say bertie beetles

  2. actually no, i didnt go for the bertie beetle one this year, its strange to break with tradition but yeah><
    i got the pepsi bag, its got a pretty cool backpack and stuff, and then i got the menshealth and FHM bag, pretty average to be honest :|
    i think if they improved the quality of the showbags people would by a lot more of them i spose, but they would be doing a roaring trade anyway :D
