Yep, it's finally the holidays!! Friday was my last day of the school term, and I was up until midnight finishing my homework on Thursday, after having tutoring at 6.30pm. Tutoring was alright, but calculus is just getting more and more difficult. I hope I'll be able to study next week, so I don't forget everything, but above all, I hope I can do well on my exams and remaining SACs. We covered Integration that week. I didn't like it much! I am seeing a friend on Saturday, we're going to see Twilight. I should really rent the other movies so I'm not totally lost! I can't wait to get out of the house, but my main concern is that I'll be so exhausted I won't be able to enjoy it. I've been doing too much these past few weeks. I also need to find a blazer. I saw some in a magazine that were by Living Doll, and I'm hoping there's a place nearby that stocks the brand, as well as blazers that aren't necessarily floral. I just want something plain!

The past week:
The past week has been pretty busy; on Monday I found out that I definitely need braces. Again. I saw the orthodontist (not the one who did my last set of braces) and I need them on my top set of teeth. I'm having them done on the 6th of July. It would be awful if my teeth moved again! So I need to get Panadeine Forte from my doctor for that, because it's always really painful getting braces put on or having the wires changed. But this orthodontist is nice, so that's one good thing. I had to have an x-ray that same day, and then I had an appointment in the evening.
On Wednesday I had my personal training session, and went to Officeworks afterwards to pick up some things for a school project. (For my younger brother.) I also got another notebook, identical to the one I currently use as a diary because I figure I'll go through it in the next few months, and I really like the design.
Thursday I didn't sleep very well, and was up from about 10am, watching the results of the leadership spill, and the speeches from ex PM Kevin Rudd, the new PM Julia Gillard, and deputy PM Wayne Swan. I ended up going back to bed at about 1.30pm for a nap before tutoring. (Previously mentioned.)
Friday I had another appointment, and I only got 2hrs' sleep. I also changed my bed linen (a huge task for me, one I try to do every week) washed my hair and put on a wash. I spent basically all of the weekend in bed; I feel completely wiped out, and most days it takes me an hour to sit up in bed. It's like my limbs are lead.

This week:
Today I had an appointment, as I did yesterday evening, but I don't have to do anything on Wednesday and Thursday except rest before I go out on Saturday. On Friday I'm having my hair cut, which is good, because it'll save me energy; I won't have to wash it that day! I've been going to bed between 11pm and 11.45pm for the past week or so, and it worked quite well some nights, except that I was waking every hour, but last night I went to bed at 11.45, gave up on sleep at 2am, watched tv, tried sleeping repeatedly, but was awake until about 6.30am. And I got up at 11am today, so I am feeling really sick, disoriented, dizzy and nauseous. If someone could fix my sleep, I think all my other symptoms would ease incredibly! Does anyone else feel that if they slept, their symptoms would be relieved?

The new PM...
I think it's a good thing that the Labor party has a new leader; after several disasters, for which Kevin Rudd took most, if not all of the blame, they needed a change of image. I also think that Julia Gillard would be able to defeat Tony Abbot more easily than Kevin Rudd, but it's still very early to be making predictions. But I do think that by changing leaders they have distanced themselves somewhat from the various disasters that have happened, and are also promising change. I am interested to see what sort of role Kevin Rudd will take on in the new Government, and am also wondering when he will change his Twitter account. It still has the title "PM" in it. Speaking of Twitter, there are some really funny (fake) politician's accounts out there. I can't wait for the election, but I really hope that it doesn't come too close to my exams!

That's it...
I guess that's all I can really think of at the moment. I haven't got a lot to say, but if I were feeling better, I would write more about the change of leadership. I'm still writing in my diary nearly every day, and I spend a lot of time on my iPhone. I love the "Fruit Ninja" app. It's heaps of fun, but not so good if you're trying to relax before bed! Then I just read news sites. I might try to get up at 11am or midday each day, because then I might sleep at night. I'll really need my sleep before I go to see the film, because it takes about an hour to get there, (I think, when you include picking my friend up) so I'll have to get up at about 11am. And I want to be able to enjoy myself, and eat junk food! =p

Keep the comments coming, I love to hear from any and all readers! Sorry if this was a boring post!!
