where did the year go?

01 October 2014
Is it october already?!?!?! 
I can't believe last week was Week 9 of uni. 3 more weeks till exams & Summer holidays...
I can't make up my mind whether or not I'm relieved that September is over or excited that October's here. Indeed, September proved itself to be hectic, I was slaving over two 2000 word essays & two 1500 word essays.
At least I've got a few weeks to take a breather until my take home exams + exams commence in November. 

Weather has been splendid but erratic, beautiful & sunny during the day 
but plagued with windstorms & heavy rain at night.

here are this week's updates :)

Overdued! Taken during one of our tourist activities or, shall I say, touricvities :P

Went for brunch with Kara at South Yarra! Lovely cafe with the most charismatic waiters.

I love going to parks. You know how people have that one place where they feel at peace & calm.. My place for that are parks. Especially one that's beautifully decorated with trees and greenery. 
Decided to ditch the city scenery for a change & went to the park with Faiz.

I've been fiddling with Lightroom a lot lately. My go to app to edit my photos. 
I've always been a fan of film (effects) so I've been doing my best trying to emulate film-y photos.
Hence the grainy photos!
So far I'm quite pleased but still lots of room for improvement. Heheh. 

Speaking of October, I'm super duper excited for the next few weeks! 
Shze's flying down from Sydney for the weekend on the 18th. FINALLYYYYY.

My days have been delightful, cheerful & merry. 
To many more untroubled days like these :)
