I’ve met and said hello to some of my new neighbours, the block seems very quiet and peaceful. Apparently my 60ish year old neighbour next door was the youngest person in our complex until my arrival!
More good news in the post – I’ve been officially accepted into the Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design at Adelaide College of the Arts (that’s the nice big silvery Tafe building on Light Square)! I accepted the offer last night. I’ve been doing subjects from this degree piecemeal as a single subject enrolment over the last couple of years, so now I just need to apply for credit transfer and they’ll count towards my degree. I wanted to enrol in the degree in 2011, but they wouldn’t allow me to as I was going to Singapore and would miss part of the first Semester. Fortunately my old school grades still counted so I was able to apply on the back of those. I’ll start this at the same time as the Cert IV in Peer Work, but only do the Visual Art part time so I can do the Peer Work Cert full time.
I’m having trouble with sleep and pain at the moment with everything going on. I’m not getting to sleep until about 5am most nights, and I’ve been having trouble with TMJ over the past four or five months (pain in my jaw, possibly related to my fibromyalgia) which is waking me up around 8am. Physio and painkillers are helping but not enough, I’m starting to think I have a rotten tooth setting everything off. I already see far too much of my wonderful dentist but I think another visit is in order. 😦
In the meantime, naps whenever I can get them to catch up on sleep, not doing much before midday when I’m foggy and disoriented where possible, and stocking on up on easy food (no prep, no chewing!) to make sure I still eat during the move is my plan.
There was a special on yoghurt at my local supermarket so I’m all set. 🙂 I love those small bags of baby spinach you can buy for a couple of dollars too. With some high quality balsamic vinegar, you have an instant salad. That should help keep me going!
