Ironic Contradictions

I'm a long time reader - since way back when I was seven. That makes it over three quarters of my life that I will be a reader for. But it is worth it. When I'm not reading or wasting my time online on here or Goodreads I'll be off playing video games, studying teaching and messing around with friends and pop culture. Or reading some more.

So How Was Your Week?

I am under no illusion that I do not have a very privileged life, and I'm thankful for that. Of course if living a blessed life meant an eternal life which sucked I'd throw it away in a heartbeat. All things considered I've had a great and busy week, and it's that which I want to talk about :)

Earlier in the week I went to the Melbourne performance of the famed musical Les Miserables. It was an amazing performance (I've seen tapes/dvds/youtube clips of the English performances and films) by any standard and well worth the admission. I just love the mixture of grandeur and epic story with the music Then on Thursday I ended up heading across to my best mate's place (he lives with several other young adults) for some video gaming (Dota 2) and a late night Maccas' run. Friday it was a trip to the footy, which is where the first downside of the week struck in that my team played worse than I have ever seen them play before and we lost - but flipside is it wasn't an important game yet and there is still room to bounce back. And today I went to the Melbourne Oz comic con - which is a new event since 2011 and one I have never been to. Seeing the cool geeky and nerdy cosplaying and the various actors (X-men's Shawn Ashmore, and SG1's Richard Dean Anderson) was pretty awesome and I walked away with some cool posters and comics. That said I lost/may have had my backpack taken at the very end. Fortunately I had my keys, phone and wallet - but I did lose one book I was busy reading and a t-shirt that I liked...

But still two negatives in a week full of amazing fun makes for one amazing week! I hope everyone else had great weeks too, and that my American friends enjoyed their 4th July holiday celebrations :)
