kirribilli and beyond

Gah, I'm so behind on blogging! My motivation lately has been a bit lacking... I've been all up to date with taking photos, editing them, and uploading them, but then when it comes to actually writing things, my mind just goes blank. Usually when that happens I'll end up talking about the music I've been listening to recently (now you know my trick, ha!), but at the moment I'm on a bit of a podcast binge. Dan Carlin's Hardcore History series, to be exact. History gets such a bad reputation because it's considered 'boring,' but in reality it's anything but; to be frank, I just think it gets taught badly in school. It's such a cliché, but Dan Carlin makes history come alive. He creates an atmosphere of intimacy and urgency, so that even when he's discussing long-ago events like Genghis Khan's Mongol empire or the Punic Wars, I get incredibly invested in what's going on -- I'm pretty much sitting on the edge of my seat for the entire duration of an episode. It makes my daily hour-long bus rides between uni and home almost bearable, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

I seem to have gone off topic a bit, haha. Anyway, so these pictures are from Saturday: Angie and I went to the Kirribilli markets and hung out at/on the Harbour Bridge.

The picture above: Angie got those gorgeous Mardi Gras-y DSquared shoes for freaking pennies! Seriously, ostrich and in amazing condition...sometimes I get so resentful of my stupid freakishly wide feet, haha.

And then a few shots (below) of our walk across the Harbour Bridge. I've lived here for four years and this is the first time I've actually done it, how does that even happen?! All the fences and stuff makes it look a bit like a prison, doesn't it? :D

These were taken at The Rocks once we'd crossed the bridge, it's such a historic, picturesque, twisty-turny secretly-creviced area.

(Aaand, I'm officially back to regular blogging; count on it!)
