TGIF I had Indonesian dinner with my friends as I had an Entertainment book coupon. And then we went to a Gin Bar for drinks.
Conclusion of the night: We are too old for clubbing.

Woke up to this beautiful sunrise and shared it with my parents. They started taking pictures on their phone when they saw me taking a photo. It was so cute watching them fail. I had it do it for them.

Skyping with this fool and he screenshots me pulling a weird face.
When in my previous relationships, I always had this nagging worry that my relationships were too serious. Even when I was with my boyfriends, there was this indirect formality and I used to put up a facade of constant happiness.
I remember a friend asking me about my exs, “How come you never fight?”. I responded saying that we never allowed for any reasons for a fight to arise.
However, looking back now, I think that that might have been the reason because I never spoke up. I always wanted to avoid confrontation, so I would follow the path of least conflict. And sometimes that would put me in a compromised position.
I am in a world of difference now. We always address issues on the spot now. It means that there are more fights but there is a lot less subconscious resentment. This has also let me open up to him more about myself. I don’t worry about him seeing me being my silly self.
I think that conflict is good; it has made Mr Boo and me feel more closer to each other. The WA Aids Council workshops on communication have been a very useful tool in our relationship.

Randomly bumped into this one at the work kitchen. Gave me the fright of my life. I was very unproductively stunned for the rest of the day.
Omg one of #Andre’sTopFagHags is working on the same floor as me! Yay

Today, I visited the Department of Corrective Services for a work meeting. I came across this amazing Aboriginal art by the prisoners in prisons all around Western Australia.
It made me think that if only their creative energy was harnessed in a more productive way, then they would have had very different lives now.

I went to brunch with Mum in the morning. We went to Kings Park for a jog and then to South Perth for this amazing meal. She really enjoys eating out and I should take her to these new places more often. Sometimes I feel that she doesn’t permit herself to enjoy life because she sees herself as a mother, wife or woman. She sees it as her duty to remain at home. I need to change this.
In the evening, I caught up with my #homohomies and we went to this puzzle room where we were locked up and we had to solve puzzles to let ourselves out. It reminded me of this show that I watched when I was younger called Crystal Maze. I’m so glad that my group of friends are proactive and look out for such opportunities.
