I don't hate uni or anything (as much as I'm itching to get out into the real world), but I have been counting down to this mini-holiday since day one. There's nothing quite like being able to come home after a long day at work/interning and knowing you don't have to actually do any more work if you don't want to. Granted, mid-sems aren't real holidays as we've got things to do due first week back, but it's nice knowing I don't really have to worry about that until a couple of days before term starts again, hah.
Last term was pretty good, actually. I seem to recall first year being a lot more hectic and stressful for some reason - whether it's because the actual work load has been less/easier or if I've just gotten better at managing my time, I don't know, but I'm putting money on the former.
Our main styling assignment was to roll with a theme/trend and create editorial-style layouts for it, and shooting on-location with my partner/friend Jess for our beachy/organic theme produced some beautiful photos (probably because this place is gorgeous). Our location that we stumbled upon by accident: Kutti Beach.
Kutti Beach is a secret beach like no other. We were actually trying to find Milk Beach but went into a no-through road by accident, got out of the car and noticed the tiniest, narrowest staircase by a sailor's club. Down the staircase was a small concrete, planted landing which then lead to the private beach local mansion-dwellers call their backyard. There were probably only two or three people there on this super-hot and sunny day, a far cry from the ridiculous crowds you get at Bondi.
I'm itching to take Richard here, as we rarely get time to go to the beach together... in between him working full time and me being at uni, we rarely get days off together :( Hopefully some time in the next two weeks!
