I've had the best 2 weeks recently. As bad as it sounds saying that exam week was included in my 'best 2 weeks', it was. I went into school for 1-2 hours a day for a week and then had a whole week off. It's been fab. I've had time to chill out, catch up on some reading, go to gym, see friends, do some shopping!
Today was the most exciting day before going back to school tomorrow and getting back into the swing of the monotonous life..
I spent all morning at RMIT watching in on a shoot for their next brochures. Monty Coles was the photographer for the job. It was a really good experience for me to meet new people, speak to them about the industry and just observe what these people do in their professions. I love doing these random days of work experience it is such a valuable way of spending my day and I really do learn a lot just by observing!
So for the rest of the day I'll be gathering and sorting through photos for my up coming posts, I've got some cool new stuff to show you guys!
Then after 2 more weeks of scholastic orientated activities on my weekends, I'll be free.

Last weekend my family and I took a short spontaneous trip to Sydney for the weekend. The hyper-activeness of the spontaneity got the better of my by the plane trip home. I fell asleep as soon as I found my allocated seat then wakened on the walk from the terminal to the taxi and fell asleep again. It was all worth it though. I've been to Sydney once before although our first day was also the first day of the dust storm if any of you remember... so that was a fail! But this time we saw the sights we saw last time with the addition of getting to see the new museum of contemporary art which I love going to in every city we travel to, and the gallery which was currently holding the Archibald 2012 exhibit. We took a ferry to Manly where we strolled along the waterfront then sat down 3 stories high in a hidden burger bar. After a long time waiting I finally got to experience some shopping on Oxford street which turned out to be a nightmare.
The misfortunes of Mikhaela...
I bought shoes, left them in a shop, couldn't find them, luckily found them the next day at another shoe shop where I left them on the floor, got back to the hotel, opened the box, got given the wrong shoes, put them on hold in their Melbourne store, picked them up last night. Argh!
But apart from that it was rad. I want to go back and see all the other markets which sold the best little finds. I'd also love to eat a Momofuku and a few other restaurants in Surry Hills.
Whenever I go on holidays I get excited for getting to dress up and actually taking the time to look okay, unlike when I'm at home running errands (doing a shit load of homework) where I wear crap all! My favourite is the golden jumper which is my new prized possession!
