Week 13 together – Melbourne Show!

We had such a great time celebrating our second year of friendship!

This week was awesome! Well, actually, I can’t remember too much about what happened during the week, but the weekend was great! We went to the Melbourne Show, moved stuff from two rooms into one room, and made some lasagna. This week, we were celebrating our “friendiversary” – Ciera and I have now known each other for two amazing years! :)

Last year, when Ciera was here (she was going back to the USA around this time last year :(), we went to the Melbourne Show, which is a fair/carnival thing that happens here in Melbourne  every year.  We went with my sister Jacinta and her friend Betty, and enjoyed it heaps. This year was no different – On Saturday, Ciera and I went to the Melbourne Show together. There was HEAPS of animals this year, a lot more than last year! Including some cute little piglets, and massive cows, and a whole range of other ones. […]

Week 11 together!

We're awesomely cute!

Wow, the time goes so quickly when you’re having lots of fun! It’s week 11 already :o. This week was pretty good. Ciera was having some issues at work, with payroll not recording her bank details correctly. She got that fixed this week and finally got paid for the first time on Wednesday. I think it’s pretty good that she’s finally made some money of her own here in Australia. She went shopping on Friday and spent some of the money buying some new awesome stuff.

Saturday, we weren’t entirely sure what to do. Ciera thought that I needed new shoes… They’re old and broken and have holes in them but I still liked them :(. Anyways, we ended up going to DFO at South Wharf (near Docklands) to try and find some shoes. The directions the Metlink site gave us were kinda wrong and we ended up getting lost for a bit. Lucky for us, I had Google Maps installed on my phone, and we checked that to find some proper directions. We finally found the place, and now I have new shiny shoes. I’m still kinda incredibly jealous of the shoes with flashing lights that kids have – I wish they made adult versions of those! :(.  […]

Week 9 together – Ciera gets a job

Cute picture of us.

Wow, week 9 already! The weeks seem to go so quickly when you’re having fun :)! This week, Ciera had her Myki training on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. By the end of Thursday, she found out that she had gotten the job! I’m so proud of her, and glad that she’s finally found a job in Australia :). Her first shift is this Friday, really really early in the morning (6:30 AM).

Friday, when I finished work for the day, we went to Papa Gino’s for dinner (yes, again). This time, we got some different food than last time (I got lasagna, and Ciera got ravioli), and it was quite delicious. I’d recommend going there to anyone looking for good Italian food! On Saturday, we went into the city to go to Lord of the Fries for lunch, and to see a Tim Burton exhibition at ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image). […]

Week 8 together!

Kisses!

Wow! Daniel and I have made it through another month together! I never questioned we’d make it through but it’s still so amazing to think about. I’m really excited about next month, though. On the 26th of September it will be two years since we met online. To me, that feels more important than when we decided to be together. Life would be so much different if we never met and I know we’re both so happy we started a life together!

Anyways, let me tell you about this week. It has been really great! We’ve both managed to be pretty busy. On Monday Daniel and I went to dinner at Papa Gino’s, one of the many Italian restaurants on Lygon Street. We both got some pasta and it was delicious! We are planning on going back very soon :)! For my friends back in “The Valley”, Fazzari’s is very similar.

Tuesday, I had a Myki assessment. Before that I met up with Daniel so we could have lunch with his cousin. […]

Week 7 together

Smile :D

This week, like every week, has been pretty good! Ciera wanted me to start writing blog posts instead of her doing them all the time, so I thought I should write this week’s post :P. This week has been pretty relaxing, we didn’t really do too much. It’s good to relax every so often :)

On Wednesday, I had to go to work early (7am!) which was quite hard but I managed to do it. Because I started two hours earlier than normal (my hours are normally 9 AM to 5:30 PM), I also finished two hours earlier. Ciera met me at work, and we went to Lord of the Fries for ‘lunch’, and then went to Northland Shopping Centre, where we spent the rest of the day looking at beds and other furniture (Ciera wants a new bed, they’re quite expensive though!). Saw some nice furniture that we’ll have in our own house one day! 😀

Ciera’s been continuing to look for jobs. We’ve gotten relatively desperate about looking for jobs, so much that we’ve even applied to McDonalds. […]

My life with Ciera so far

This was originally posted to Daniel’s blog on 18th July 2010.


So as you’d already know, Ciera came back to Australia three weeks ago, which is why I haven’t really been on messenger much recently :P. Things have been excellent so far, it’s been really enjoyable. Last week, we made some delicious rainbow cookies. They were pretty much just plain lemon cookies based on a recipe from a $4 book we bought at Go-Lo, WITH A DIFFERENCE! We made them awesome by colouring them all different colours (and even made some multi-colour, which was my idea :D). They were delicious and colourful and made with 100% awesomesauce. Next time we make some, we’ll make them all rainbow I think xD.

Yesterday (Saturday), we went to Scienceworks, which is a science museum here in Melbourne. Well, we got there eventually. We had a few minor issues along the way. Firstly, we got off at Parliament Train Station (as the Metlink journey planner said to), and the platform that the train we needed usually comes to was closed, and there was a notice to go to Southern Cross Station. So, we went back to the platform we came from, and caught another train to Southern Cross. When we got to Southern Cross, the train took aaaages to come (then again, it’s the Weribee line so it’s kinda expected I guess :P). And then there was another complication — The train terminated at Footscray and we had to take a replacement bus the rest of the way. However, once we caught that bus, we finally got there. Entry is free if you’re a student, so that’s definitely a bonus. […]
