I found the secret to life [Nov. 20th, 2009|02:53 pm]

I have not felt this happy in a very long time. And it's all inner content. I have my new phone, I get to be in the fourth row of Tori next week, which is actually making me get a bit teary sometimes; which is awesome because it reminds me that I do still have a couple of emotions left.
Listening to Midwinter Graces at the moment, I really truely*sp* thought that it was going to be bollocks, I thought Tori really had gone wacky malackey, but it is one of the most beautiful albums I've heard. Life is good.
And her daughter sings on my favourite song. Hmmmm :)

"I found the secret to life. I'm okay when everything is not okay." - Tori

My plan is to do /nothing/ tonight. I'm sick of being grumpy when I try to do things of a Friday night. But will I /actually/ do nothing? Hmmm!

iPhone = No boredom. Ever.

Didn't realize that people were still using the old livejournal. But I know 4 people at least who still are, so..... here I am, to make it a 5th.
Might as well hey, considering work doesn't block livejournal unless it's my friends page..... so I can individually go to each friends page, but not to see all of them at the same time in a neat package. Ahh well.

Life is good at the moment. Living in Auchenflower still with Mitch and Chris and hopefully Scott in the next week or so. Still working for Council which is going great, putting in an application for free accounting courses today. What can I say, I'm a dork, I find general ledgers fun.

Thinking about going in on a house loan with my mum so she can get a better house, in a better area, and be generally happier. So that is really exciting. I just want my mum to be happy and safe, I wish that I had more money to make that happen. But until then, she'll just have to accept my love and lame jokes.

Dad, however, is in rehab. I'm hoping that this time he stays in. He has wasted his whole life, so maybe he can make up for it in his last years. :)
Brother, also is messed up, in jail again. Not sure whether to be angry at him or feel sorry for him. Protection of my mum makes me feel the anger, but then... he's my dorky brother....

What else is happening? Spending alot of time with Mum which is great. Went to see 'Cannot Buy My Soul' the Kev Carmody tribute and it was AMAZING. It was one of those experiences that you wish everybody you know could experience with you. Tex Perkins was as awesome and manly as ever! :P The drones got a new fan that night, they rocked the whole place up. Missy Higgins was... well..... I didn't get to steal her and lock her in my bedroom, but she was beautiful none the less. Hilltop Hoods and the Last Kinnection were so fucking cool I was boppin' along. Paul Kelly.... well ...... I almost cried seeing him in person, his tunes being some of the first that I ever listened to growing up. Who else was there? Uncle Kev ......... he is funnier and smarter and down to earth and more awesome then I could have imagined. It was beautiful that we were all wearing our red Kev Carmody head scarves. One of the best nights ever. And then after wards mum and I ate at JUMBO and it was the best fish ever... just icing on the mudcake that was that night.
So much more has happened recently that I would like to have on record, because I always get surprised when I look back and read old entries. Awesome to see how far i've come since tra_la_la_la_la :P I'm too scared to even look at that journal yet.

Now that my life is on track, i'm starting to improve upon that. I've got the foundations of sanity and contentedness and now I can figure out what I want to do and who I want to be. It's actually very exciting.

I'm happy hope you're happy tooooo

Mitchel's party this Saturday, should be interesting considering the other day when we were bored we were trying to figure out who we both like to invite over....... the only person we could think of at the time was Amy. And it was pretty much all me going 'I don't like that person' So i suspect i'll be hiding in my room with Prue and Jenna and hopefully Bex aswell.
His dad invited me to the family happy birthday Mitchel dinner tonight which is super nice to hear. Won't be able to go though because i have $6 to my name till next Tuesday.
I thought i'd miss Kellie more than this, maybe it's because she let me down so much that my mind is hesitant to think about her. I hope she gets stuff sorted in her head and life. It kind of felt like i was dumped, but now i realize that i'm far too much of an independant/solitary person to be around one other person all the time.
It's awesome just living with Mitchel, if it wasn't so expensive i'd prefer it like this for now, it's really chilled and non dramatic, i like it. I gave myself a new haircut the other day, it's my favourite so far, we bonded instantly.
I now have 90c to my name....
Not even one tenth of a goon sack on special!
And next pay day will vanish instantly, i don't like this at all. It's a bit of a shock to the system, i don't know how i survived with shit all money for years.

Housemate Needed in Auchenflower [Jan. 13th, 2009|08:45 am]
[Tags|, , , ]
[Current Location |Auchenflower]
[music |Tori Amos - Way Down]

Auchenflower house looking for a housemate or two in about a months time. We have one great sized room and one small one, so the person in the small room would be paying less rent.
It's $430 per week so you can understand why we need to find some people before our temporary housemate moves out.
If you're interested shoot me an email (kellym.matthews@brisbane.qld.gov.au)
and we'll arrange for you to come around for a beer, hang out and see what you're like and you can see what wer'e like et cetera. It'll be good. Ofcourse only looking for open minded, honest, good people.
Look forward to meeting you if you're interested, and pass it on to people who are looking for a house as we can't afford $220 a week each! plus $70 bond between the TWO of us :P

Oh! Details:
Big Queenslander house
Big yard and big garden
5 minute walk to Auchenflower and Milton train station
4 Bedroom
Big Kitchen
Big loungeroom
40 minute walk away from the city or a $10 taxi
I love it so much! :)

Cheers big ears
Kelly (and Mitchel)

My life at the moment.Work. Derby. Family. [Sep. 27th, 2007|02:25 pm]
[Tags|, , , ]
[Current Location |Work]
[mood |hothot and thirsty]
[music |Rodriguez - Crucify your mind]

My life at the moment.
Work. Derby. Family.

I have a job, but I feel replaceable and am in a constant state of fear that they’re going to realize they could hire a ‘slightly more intelligent then the usual’ monkey to do my job, (Monkey looks like donkey but then why don’t we say dun-kee or mon-kee?) and fire me.
It was terribly boring at first, nothing to do, but now there’s more to do and it feels much better. There is nothing worse than sitting around from 8 to 5 just staring around the room.
The people are so far really lovely and I’m getting paid much more than I’m use to, $15 an hour which leaves me with plenty to play around with. The only problem is I would prefer to go back to $10 an hour if it means finishing my business admin traineeship; it looks so horrible on my resume, ‘business admin III - 2 modules remaining’.
However I’m pretty sure my boss thinks it’s a whole lot of bother she can’t be bothered with. I would feel so much more secure though, financially and just in general. I would have to be permanent while I finish my traineeship and it’s a contract so they can’t fire me. I know that I was made redundant in my last job and was too upset to go back even though I knew they weren’t allowed to do that and I could have just as easily refused and gone back to work there to finish off my traineeship (which was just a month away but I’m sure you’ve all heard me bitch about this in the real world). It was my first job and my first experience of being ‘let go’ so I was upset as all of you can imagine fragile little Kelly would be in that situation.
One good thing about working there was the fact that I had THE worst boss ever, there are no words to describe so that you can know what he was like. You really would have to work there to even get a slight grasp on how fucked up he was. I’ll rant about that later, I really should keep a record of it, so in the future if I have a bad experience with a boss or supervisor et cetera, I can look back on that, remember what it was like and be thankful I’m not there anymore and see the positives in my current situation. The point of this was to say that I have gained something out of having ‘Ian’ as a boss, I’ve grown some big rat balls, I can stand up for myself a lot better. I’m still me, I’m not exactly aggressive (unless I’m drunk :P), I’m just not as fragile and timid as I use to be. But then again it always depends on who I’m around.

I love skating, I love my team, I love derby, I love my skates, I just really really love derby. I haven’t been able to go much lately it’s been one thing after another, first I’m too poor to pay for training, then I’m sick once I get my tax return, then I get a job and can’t go because I wasn’t getting enough sleep!
Everybody else In my team and probably the other team as well (but I’m not sure because I haven’t seen them much) have been progressing, moving forward, learning new things and getting better at the old things. But because my attendance at practice has been so sporadic and infrequent I haven’t progressed at all in fact it feels as if I’ve gone back, I feel clumsy on my skates, clumsy and incapable.
Good news however, I should be able to get my license soon and I have a car (through horrible circumstances but a car none the less) so then I can take myself to and from training Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday!
There is no feeling to me like skating, and I just can’t wait till I’m good enough to skate everywhere. Rich enough to buy a separate pair exclusively for outdoor skating and skate my GAF arse off.
I feel like I’m letting my derby team down by not going there all the time, but I’m doing my best and that’s all I can do. My team is brilliant, and girls from skull collectors too of course. I’m sure the girls from the other team, that use to be hells belles, are brilliant as well but as I said before because I’ve hardly been there I’ve only seen the girls I have team training with and I’d love to get to know everybody better.
Our coach Uncle Slam is a fucking legend, he is so dedicated and always thinking about new things we can try. He’s always there to help when we don’t know what we’re doing, patient with people who are rude or short or dumb with him. He’s just fucking brilliant and I want to buy him a present for being such a bloody brilliant coach and person.
We’re quite a diverse bunch and yet we all seem to get on and have a ball, I fucking love it *huge smile*.

I’m living at home with just my mum and sister (brother left yesterday, for hopefully only 9 months). I have a reverse cycle air-conditioned room (it’s a tiny room though L) with a mother that cooks and cleans. Cleans as in, she doesn’t like anybody else cleaning things like the dishes because she’s a tad neurotic haha. I do my own washing and clean up whatever I can, but I don’t have to cook or do the dishes. And it’s mother cooking, so a well rounded healthy diet of tastiness.

THat's all for now, i'll continue soon.
