All these early starts are making my body cry for sleep, which is perhaps why I had a nap yesterday evening after I came home from work and slept in the car all the way home today after a full day out with the family in Bowral. This week has been packed with great memories whether online or in real life and I will list my top five in the usual likes. I had requested to have today and tomorrow off because the newest member of my family, my cousin’s little daughter had her baptism today and celebrated her first birthday.
She lives an hour away in the Southern Highlands and driving down the highway to her town brings back fond memories of when my family and I used to drive to Nowra before Nanna moved back up to Sydney, we used to have a lunch stop in Mittagong which is the town next to Bowral and it always fun to go through as a kid travelling a lot.
The five likes;
- Karage mayo bowl at Tenkomori on Friday night followed by fun conversation in the Bee Lab downstairs in the city

I will never grow up, that is a fact everyone close to me knows. I am the forever magical girl with a ton of stuffies, a ginger cat and lots of pink in home decor, clothes and accessories while staying cute in her style as well. But they are moments in life where I have to put on my big girl panties and act like the 29 year old woman that I am. I had to do it today since I woke up this morning and normally I enjoy a decent sleep in when I don’t have to work or on PM shifts.
Today was the one day off I had between 5 and 3 AM shifts and I am forever thankful to my boss for giving me a single day in lieu otherwise I would have been working 9 days straight. My day off was quite productive however starting with the morning I had a work webinar to do from home that went from an hour, first cooked myself breakfast a decent ham omelette with sliced rockmelon on the side plus more of my amazing Tea Tonic’s well being green tea then the afternoon was regular hair wash and going to my local shopping centre and visiting one of hte insurance companies.
You see I was involved in a minor car accident coming home from Wisemen’s Ferry on the 20th April a day before my younger sister’s birthday, no one was hurt and both our cars still function but because I was the one who bumped the back of the other car, their insurer sent a letter to me asking that I pay for the extra, now I been through enough minor accidents that my parents are sick of my at times reckless driving and of course sick of paying the repairs on my car. Today I decided to do it all on my own without bothering them for help and I did it.
I feel quite accomplished today that I can now relax tonight before I return to work tomorrow morning.
Three days out of eight have been done and dusted so far and I still have yet to continue my exercise, though I’m still very much moving around but not at a cardio level. Mum has been telling me about my budget for our Europe trip in August, thank goodness I been saving up is all I can say despite the random splurges of cute buys online…
Our clocks went back an hour today and I am forever grateful for the extra sleep I got this morning turning six hours into seven, I also worked with my front office manager today, despite being constant with our check outs, the guests were all so lovely and happy people, so we had a lot of fun while on shift. I also got fed breakfast at work today too, we got to have eggs and hash browns plus a free lunch! I can’t say no to fish and chips.
Been on a writing spree when it comes to the story of Mistaken Identity, I am up to chapter 6 for it and so far ironing out the plot while trying to calm down all the crazy ideas that keep entering my head around the fictional tale. Watched Burlesque to help with the dance sequences since the main focus is in the club. Can’t wait for this week to finish though, not just because I’m looking forward to a mini weekend away with mum but to get my rest will be nice.
Though Cyclone Debbie has gone passed and settled down from a category 4 to a tropical storm in Northern queensland, my work life is about to become a busy period leading right up to the weekend where mum and I will be doing the 10km walk in our nation’s capital.
Yes it is coming up already, can’t believe this month has gone so quickly (sorta). I will be working 8 AM shifts straight after tomorrow’s day off and training the new guest service agent, it will be a leadership experience for me, so wish me luck!
Do I have five likes for this past week, lemme count them below;
- Parents came home yesterday and I got a t-shirt present from mum 😀
- Sushi from Kanzo in Parramatta today for lunch was divine
- Finally watched Moana! What a girl power driven and emotional Disney movie ._.
- I been on a creative spark all this evening with writing my story Mistaken Identity
- Catch up phone call with my old work colleague Honey, we will see each other on Saturday
Parents flew out to Philippines today and will be away for two weeks while visiting both dad’s mum who is living in the southern province and his younger sister and husband who have retired there also. I still got the jitter bugs inside me only because this time last year I was scared when I heard a loud bang outside my house at 4am, so scared that I ended up calling my work and getting one of the night auditors to check my house for me.
Here is hoping for an uneventful two weeks without the presence of the adults. I’m sure I’ll be fine, I got Ange, Adam and Skitty of course 😛
- I lost two more kilos, don’t ask how I’m doing it but it’s staying off
- Going to watch Beauty and the Beast with two work colleagues on 21st March
- Kitten D’amour’s ‘Suspicion’ collection is divine!
- I bought Barbie: Video Game Hero, its very ‘Wreck it Ralph’ but sad no new movie trailers were released
- Only two months (roughly) until Shadowhunters returns to tv with 2b 😀
I been working AM shifts the past two days and will be working AM again tomorrow on my birthday, no I do not feel anywhere close to 29 and still feel like a hyper 21 year old girl 😛 I have also been going for walks with my mum and her work friend the past 3 nights, the back of my knees hurt when I wake up! Takes a bit of stretching before I’m ready to tackle the day, our weather down under says starting from tomorrow it’s going to be another 3 days of 40 degree weather. Eww!

After a chilled out five days off though one of those days included going for a walk in the Blue Mountains, yes I drove 45mins up into my local mountains and went for a walk around our local landmarks because the company of myself when everyone else is working is quite enjoyable. I have returned to work since last Friday and the weekend was chaotic with dodgy guests who just aren’t trusted or causing disruption. Just got tonight and tomorrow then I have my weekend again 😀
This week’s 5 likes;

- Yesterday I celebrated my 2 year relationship with my other half Brad ❤
I think the vice I got again is related to those on Second Life who make the videos of their avatar dancing, product value I understand to show what you are offering but those girls who do it to purposely show off their huge pixel tits or backside, you are better off going on those cam websites and displaying your real body if so bold -_-
This was suppose to have another new story for my warlock Andais Lu and her adventures on the Broken Shore but considering I am having a mental block tonight it is replaced by a random diary entry. Today is Day 2 out of 6 days of work and on my two days off in between actually doing some exercise I have been levelling up Andais like mad, she is already level 108 so take that to my two colleagues at work who were teasing me last week at how my toon was only level 101
This week’s 5 likes;
- Mermaid tail blanket from Typo, I need please!

- The lore/storylines behind WoW: Legion, Blizzard did good with this expansion!
I haven’t got any vices tonight which is a great thing, I’m not angry at anything and it also means I will not have friends on my Second Life facebook who do not have the guts to approach me and instead do passive aggrassive statuses 😛
Four days later and it looks like I forgot to keep you all posted in what’s happening on my end (yet again) Sorry! I have this weekend off and just got home 30mins ago after spending all evening out with Mei but instead of our usual dinner and movie outing we just had dinner tonight to continue discussions on each other’s story. My story Life Giver has expanded into a trilogy now and I have written notes passed the halfway mark in my little black book 😀
Mei’s been seeking help and creative inspiration from yours truly because she is officially writing up a story line of her first RP character from back in our IMVU days, the big sister of Ame Hayato, Meiakane.
In between the delicious Japanese and Korean cuisine that we eat as well as sating our sweet teeth with waffles, we are well and truly on a roll in getting these stories written. I also have literally 10 shifts of work left until my annual leave! Can’t wait for palm trees, white sand and lots of sun!
This week’s five likes from me;
- Having both Saturday and Sunday off after 6 days of work
- Waffle bites and peppermint tea
- Passing the halfway mark in my note book for Lotus Hexad trilogy
- Shopping in Mooii store tonight
- Ghostbusters 1 and 2 on blue ray for bedtime movie 😀
I watched the first Ghostbusters before I went out tonight and got the second one ready for later, also making sure my younger sister comes home safe tonight, she is at a friend’s 30th birthday I think in the city.
It’s not glorious because I had to wake up for my first day back to work in the AM shift when it was 5 degrees outside, it was glorious for other reasons which will be part of my five likes after I chit chat a bit longer. My weekend that just finished was very social for a girl who usually enjoys the company of her own self and goes wandering on her days off.
I bought a rainbow shaped bag at my local shopping centre on Friday afternoon then spent the night out with Mei, discussing ‘The Life Giver’ as well helping her writers block when it comes to writing up the first chapter of her first RP and main character Meiakane Hayato. We had dinner and dessert in our usual haunt in the city at Regent Place, as always it was alive and full of Asians buying food, getting drunk or looking for Pokemon 😛
On Saturday night it was suppose to be just me time when I booked myself a movie session to watch the new Ghostbusters, was not expecting to see mum’s work friends who are also my friends at the same cinema, watching the same movie with seats right next to me. I personally enjoyed this new Ghostbusters and developed a crush on the character that is Jillian Holtzmann, she’s kooky and very intelligent thats perhaps why I found her to be fabulous! Now my five likes for today..
- Wonder Woman, Justice League and Fantastic Beasts trailers at San Diego Comic-con!!
- Afternoon drives up to Wisemen’s Ferry
- My new Kitten d’amour trenchcoat
- Childhood nostalgia in buying Rainbow magic by Shirley Barber
- Dinner chat with Ange, her boyfriend Adam and dad
I guess with only a month until my family and I fly out to glorious Hawaii and its warmth and sun I have to deal with doing long shift weeks at work. My boss has rostered me on 7 days this week then 6 after my next days off then another 7 after that. I’m not sure what the deal is though one of my assistant managers explained it’s because she is on annual leave and the casual guest service agent who can normally cover me will be acting as assistant manager too. Great..
Out of all the incompetenance with fellow colleagues at work, mum being away in Malaysia for work, worrying about who will look after dad since Ange is always out with her boyfriend I still managed to find 5 likes for this new week.
- Cabanossi bites by Primo dipped in minced garlic- yum!
- Pixel cuddles with my boyfriend after work
- Kitten D’amour’s Riviera collection, I raved about it last diary post
- Smell of rain on plants
- Periods of warm days just before I go to work in the PM shift
Tomorrow will be Day 5/7 for this week and got something to look forward to on my days off, I already planned with Mei of a catch up yet again and story talking on this Friday night so can’t wait 😀
Last day off I had today before I return to work tomorrow with seven days straight (eww). I ended it with a good deal of shopping at my local mall which included a new cardigan and dress from Kitten D’amour, two pillows and cute little cat lights on string from Typo as well as Lancome’s Juicy shaker, its a lip gloss with colour and the only real reason I bought it is because other than looking cute, one of its cover girls is Lily Collins 😛
I set up the pillows on my bed and lights on my curtain and my bedroom continues to improve in look and being all pretty even with the lights turned off. I am still writing notes and ideas for my post apocalypse story in my little notebook but I haven’t gotten a title for the story yet, whoops should work on that.
Also been thinking of starting up my “Fives likes” subheading that I used to do in the old Luci Logs and did them in the beginning of this second blog. I’ll do one quickly for the finishing of my weekend
- Snapchats of Skitty
- Good morning and good night every day from my man
- Smell of chimneys in the early evening
- The sun warming up my room during cold days
- Decorating my bedroom
Sorry I’m three days behind my usual daily schedule of posting everything and anything but I haven’t been feeling the motivation for any diary or fashion tile on Second Life. What I have been doing these past couple of days is working the AM shifts and dealing with the freezing temperatures early morning. I have also got my hayfever brewing due to the fact I cleaned my room on my previous days off.
I also got to watch Mad Max: Fury Road and found myself enjoying it very much despite the morbid setting of a wasteland future, Pottermore released the houses of the American magic girl Ilvermorny and I got sorted into the Horned Serpent and though it has a snake for its symbol it’s actually one favoured for the scholars and intelligence. In national news we all had to vote yesterday for our next PM and so far it is tied up between both parties, we don’t know the final results until Tuesday, great…
A lot has happened around the world this week in both tragedy and surprise on a personal level, it has also been my four days off and I am back to work tomorrow. I got to watch both Warcraft and Finding Dory on my days off, both excellent and entertaining to watch in their own levels. Warcraft was reaching to the WoW gamer in me and seeing Azeroth come to life while Dory was seeing a movie get a sequel done right after 13 years.
Did a couple of shopping as well which is kinda normal for me every week but I need to ease up to build my resources again especially if I’m aiming for Europe next year. Sadness is surrounding Orlando as the world knows but hope and love will stay love within the LGBT community, I know that we will continue and hopefully the Americans can curb their gun control. As a fangirl with a hopeless celebrity crush I am mourning that Tom Hiddleston is making out with Taylor Swift and torn inside.
Other than thinking he is the real life Disney Prince and Bees knees and thinking she makes great music and a sweetheart to the fans, but he is taken and no longer available, I know he’s way above my level and couldn’t ever think of meeting him in the future but still- its my dream hubby no more.
